Alleged Leaked Live images reveals Punch hole camera in Google Pixel 4



Just a day after the alleged CAD renders of Google Pixel 4 was leaked online, a newly leaked live image, which claims to be of the upcoming Google Pixel 4 has surfaced. The newly surfaced image is completely contrary to the previous leak but is in line with the earlier leaks that came before that one.

According to the latest image, which is believed to be of the Pixel 4 XL, it has a punch hole camera design in the front.

The real shape of the smartphone is partially hidden by a protective covering in the leaked images. However, it reveals the display and the front camera design. The punch hole camera design in the Pixel 4 is similar to that seen in the Samsung Galaxy S10, in the upper right corner. While it is not clear whether it has bezels or not, the frame on all four sides has the same thickness. The images also reveal that it will be possible to hide the punch hole by turning off the upper part of the display.

Apart from this, it is speculated that the upcoming Pixel 4 will see an implementation of Google’s Project Soli, which was announced back in 2015. By analyzing the code of Android Q, XDA members have discovered that Google is working on a new gesture for multimedia reproduction which might require a new “aware” sensor for detecting the presence of the user. Now, Project Soli is based on a radar chip which appears to be the ideal solution for implementing this new gesture.

It is also expected that the Pixel 4 will have a feature in android Q which was hidden to all other devices till now, an option to enable automatic white balance. This new feature requires a new sensor capable of detecting colors. Along with this, it is also speculated that the Pixel 4 will be having 3D face unlock technology. Since the expected release date of the Pixel 4 is nowhere near soon, we will have to wait further to know more about this flagship.




Xiaomi CC9 to Come with a 48MP Rear Camera & a 32MP selfie camera with Advanced Beauty Modes



Xiaomi will be introducing its new smartphone series called CC on July 2 with the upcoming Xiaomi CC9 smartphone. While there is very few information about the specs of the device, the Chinese manufacturer has revealed that it will sport a 32MP selfie camera with improved Beauty mode.


The post on Weibo says the camera will “restore the natural skin texture” and will “record the beauty of each moment”. While this seems all very flashy, this is just marketing talk about the new advance filters that founder and CEO Lei Jun was talking about earlier this month.

This new information suggests Xiaomi is aiming to target the selfie-centric customers and the younger generation. The company was not always known for good camera specs, but with recent smartphones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro, it has taken an edge over its competitors.

An image of the retail box of Xiaomi CC9 has surfaced online showing it will house a 4,000 mAh battery. Other than that, it doesn’t give much information about the specs.  As per rumours, the two smartphones in the CC series called Mi CC9 and the Mi CC9e will include an in-display fingerprint sensor, a glass body, Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back. They are said to sport triple camera setup at the back and a selfie camera placed on a waterdrop notch. Previously leaked renders show the handsets in white, but we can expect other vibrant color options too.

The Mi CC9 is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipsets with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB internal storage. It is said to come with a 6.39 inch AMOLED display and a triple camera setup consisting of a 48MP sensor, an 16MP sensor and a 12MP sensor. On the other hand, the Mi CC9e is expected to carry a 5.97 inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 710 chipset and a triple camera setup of a 48MP sensor,  an 8MP sensor and a 5MP sensor.

We still have to wait a week till the launch to know about the Price and Availability. Till now, it is only known to release in the home market.

Honor 9X Pro to come with Kirin 810, 48MP IMX582 Primary Camera & 20W Fast Charging!



Honor 9X series seems to be the company next launch with the Honor 9X Pro certified from FCC and China’s 3C a few days ago. The smartphone’s specifications were a mystery but now a Twitter user @RODENT950 has revealed the smartphone’s specifications. Another Twitter user who goes by the name Huawei Club has posted about the device’s alleged chipset.

According to the tweet by @RODENT950, the Honor 9X Pro will feature a punch-hole LCD with a screen size between 6.5 inches to 6.7 inches. The rear side will sport a quad camera setup consisting of a 48MP IMX582 primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP dedicated macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The front will offer a 25MP camera. He further mentions it will carry a 4,000 mAh battery with 20W fast charging and a 3D glass design.

Now, @ClubHuawei reveals that the Huawei 9X Pro will be powered by the Kirin 810 SoC. According to him, the Kirin 810 is Huawei’s upcoming mid-range 7nm SOC that has its self developed NPU. It will also be powering the upcoming Huawei Nova 5(standard version) apart from the Honor 9X Pro.

Honor’s 9X series will likely to have the standard Honor 9X and the Honor 9X Pro. They are the successor to the last year’s Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max. Considering the recent US ban on Huawei and the number of companies that have severed ties with the company including Google, the smartphones may face some problems in the near future. It is not clear whether it will run the Android-based EMUI or Huawei’s Hongmeng OS that is rumored to debut on the second half of 2019.

There is no word about the launch date but the FCC and 3C certification hints that the launch is imminent. Like its predecessors, they are likely to be launched in the Indian market.

NOTE: The featured image is an Honor 8X, and is used for representational purposes.
