Alleged Asus Zenfone 6 Prototypes Leaked. Shows Display Holes & Triple Cameras!

Published

on

The Asus Zenfone 5 and Zenfone 5Z and have been there for quite a while in the market and now it seems that the Taiwanese giant is working up to bring its successor i.e. the Asus Zenfone 6 anytime soon. You may have never heard of the device before, due to the fact that this is its first ever leak on the internet. We now have some images of the various prototypes of Asus devices, out of which, one may turn out to be the Zenfone 6 in the future.

The first prototype image of the alleged Zenfone 6 comes through a YouTube channel named Rodrigo Portella. The device in the images shown in the video looks pretty generic, it seems to have an aluminum frame along with a poly carbonate back. Volume rockers along with the power button are placed to the right side, followed by a USB type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker grill at the bottom. The white colored back further houses a dual camera setup and a fingerprint scanner. While at the front, it surprises us with an edge-to-edge display that still has a bottom chin but comes with a display hole for front camera (something which Samsung seems to be planning of).

Next leak comes from the Rede Geek YouTube channel which shows of a completely different story. The prototype device here comes with a similar full screen display on front but has a weirdly cut tiny notch reminiscent to water drop notches but asymmetrically shifted towards right. The back houses a vertically stacked dual camera setup to the top left and a fingerprint scanner below it. Further, the text on the back hints at “water-proofing”. The USB type-C is present on the top while the bottom frame is empty. The speaker grills and the audio jack can’t be spotted anywhere in the given images. This sample looks almost identical to the Zenfone 5Z except for the front Notch.

And finally, next we have another prototype’s hands-on video showcased exclusively by an Indian tech YouTube channel C4ETech. As per which. The device sports a water-drop notch at the front, just like what we’ve seen with Oppo R17 Pro for housing the front camera. Note that the bottom chin is present on this one as well as the former two. Furthermore, looking at the back, we have a glossy shimmer just like the Zenfone 5Z, followed by three cameras out of which one bears red lining (maybe to signify a special function) and a single LED flash below, the fingerprint resides at the traditional location.

Well, as you might notice, the third prototype seems to be a ready-to-sell device and is most probably the real successor of the Zenfone 5. It also bears the Asus branding while the other two look very generic and impractical. However, the In-display hole shown in first one is something we do care of. As of now, we don’t have any clear information about the device but better than nothing, we at least have the possible designs of the upcoming Asus Zenfone 6. We also expect one of the smartphones shown here to be the Zenfone 6Z, a bigger brother of the 6, just like the current Zenfone 5 lineup. Anyways, there are a ton of more leaks coming along the way, let’s wait for them. Till then, stay tuned.

According to the recent leaks and rumors, the LG G8X will feature a dewdrop notch and a glass body finish. The display is said to be of 6.2 inch and may come with an embedded in-screen fingerprint sensor. This will make it the first LG smartphone to have this technology.

It will have IP68 rating (water and dust resistance), a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. There will also be a dedicated Google Assistant button. The renders show a traditional speaker at the top of the phone.

Last week, the company released a video showing a cartoon character traveling from one screen to a destination on the other screen while revealing a third display showing date and time. The company has released a new video showing the hands of a clock going from zero degrees to 180 degrees hinting a dual-screen technology.

LG was reported to launch two smartphones at the IFA 2019: the LG G8X and the LG V60 ThinQ or the LG V50S. Now reports have indicated that they are not separate phones. Instead, the company is planning to launch the LG G8X in International markets and the LG V50S ThinQ in Korea. Now LG uses G-series moniker for the 4G LTE smartphones and V-series moniker for 5G smartphones. This has lead to the speculation that LG G8X will have 4G LTE connectivity while the LG V50S ThinQ will have 5G connectivity.

LG has not given any official word on the smartphone. We will have to wait for a few leaks before the launch to know more about the smartphone. Till then, keep tuned for more updates.

Oppo Reno2 With Quad Camera To Launch In India First, Camera Details Revealed!

Published

on

Oppo Reno is the latest flagship phone lineup from Oppo. After the first from the lineup, Oppo Reno was launched, it created a huge buzz in the smartphone users community. Just at the starting of this month, we came to know that Oppo is working on the next Reno, and also, we came to know that the phone will launch first in India. Today, more details have emerged and this time, the info we have right now is official.

However, at that time nothing was official. But today, Oppo has officially teased the next phone from Oppo Reno lineup. The phone is named Oppo Reno2, which is a bit of surprise as Oppo is named their phones in quite a complex way. Anyway, the Oppo Reno2 will be launched first in India, as speculated on August 28.

This is quite a big step for a brand like Oppo and this somehow indicates that the company is willing to trade on dangerous grounds by introducing flagship phones first in India. Here’s the teaser, in case you haven’t seen it yet.

The company, in the teaser, mentioned a thing or two about the special features of the phone. Oppo Reno2 will come with quad-camera setup on the back and will have 20x zoom. This is a huge leap from the current Oppo Reno smartphone, which has a 10x zoom. However, there is no word regarding what kind of technologies the company is using on the phone or which camera sensor is being used on Oppo Reno2.

But well, the official teaser wasn’t enough for smartphone enthusiasts it seems. An account by the name Fengchao Technology on Weibo, posted on China’s Facebook that the Oppo Reno2 will have a  48-megapixel primary camera. Along with it, there will be a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, which will offer a 20x zoom. He suggested that there will be an 8-megapixel super wide-angle lens and there will be a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. The 2-megapixel monochrome sensor is something pretty uncommon on smartphones.

Also, just now it has been brought to our notice that a new Oppo device bearing the PCKM70 model number has passed through China’s Compulsory Certification Agency (CCC). The listing reveals that the phone comes with Oppo’s proprietary VOOC 3.0 for 20W fast charging and supports 5G connectivity. As of now, as flagship phones are the only ones getting 5G support, so it won’t be surprising if Oppo Reno2 supports 5G as well or if Oppo brings a separate 5G variant of Oppo Reno2. However, as these are unofficial pieces of info from different sources, I would advise you to take it with a pinch of salt.
