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.
New Samsung Galaxy S10E, S10 & S10+ Leaked Encased in Cases!
Samsung is gearing up for the launch of its flagship devices – the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the S10+. Surprisingly, we have got information regarding the existence of another model in the Galaxy S10 which is named the Galaxy S10E.
Popular tipster Evleaks has come up with renders which claim to be the final design of these upcoming flagship devices. The renders are with a protective case applied on them. Take a look at the tweet:

According to the renders, it is clear that the punch-hole camera design, also known as the Infinity-O display will be seen on all the three devices. The rear cameras are horizontally stacked on all the three devices, just like the ones that we have seen earlier on the Note9.
It appears like the Galaxy S10E will be the cheapest of the three devices judging by the placement of dual rear cameras instead of triple cameras. There will be triple rear cameras on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. If a closer look is taken, we can notice the presence of dual front cameras in the S10+ which were revealed by the handset’s public appearance a few days back.
The 3C certification revealed that the brand will unveil a total of five variants of the Galaxy S10 and the S10 combined which goes by the model numbers SM-690F, SM-G975F, SM-G073F, SM-G9730 and SM-G9750. An in-display fingerprint scanner and 3D facial scanning are expected to be equipped on these upcoming flagships.
A reverse charging technology named Powershare, similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is rumoured to be present on both the devices. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 in the US while the other markets will get the Exynos 9820 version. A 5G model of the Galaxy S10 will also be unveiled in the event. The event will take place on the 20th of February. Till then, stay tuned for updates.

South Korean smartphone giant Samsung is about to unveil its latest M series of devices in India. They have officially announced the launch date of these new devices through Amazon listing a few days back. The devices will be announced on the 28th of this month.
The brand aims to make a comeback and regain the reputation on the budget segment with these new devices. As reported earlier, the new devices in the Galaxy M series will feature Infinity V Displays.

Both the Galaxy M10 and M20 packs some decent specifications. Till now, we knew that the brand would price these devices aggressively in order to cope up with other Chinese competitors in the segment like Xiaomi and Realme. Today, leaks have emerged online revealing the pricing of these handsets.
If the sources are to be believed, the price of the Samsung Galaxy M10 will start from Rs 8,990 while the Samsung Galaxy M20 will be priced starting Rs 12,990. Two variants are expected for the M10 and the lower variant is expected to be selling for this price.
The Galaxy M10 is expected to come with a 6.2-inch LCD Infinity-V display powered by Exynos 7872 chipset, 2/3 GB of RAM and 3,400 mAh battery along with 13 MP + 5 MP rear camera setup and a 5 MP front camera. There will be 32 GB of internal storage and it will run on Android Oreo with Samsung’s UI on top.
The more expected device is indeed the Galaxy M20. It will come with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ 19:5:9 display of 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution. It will be powered by Exynos 7885 processor with Mali-G71 GPU. It is also expected to come in two variants offering either 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage or 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.
Both handsets were previously rumoured to come with Android Pie but it seems like they would rather launch with older Android 8.1 Oreo. A dual 13 MP + 5 MP rear camera along with 8 MP front camera is expected on the handset along with a massive 5000 mAh battery. Stay tuned for further updates.

The SD 675 is placed between the SD 660 and SD 710 and will be slightly powerful than the SD 710. However, to keep the price in check, Qualcomm embedded it will a slower GPU, less capable ISP and 11nm cost effective manufacturing process.
