After creating a revolution in the basic design aspect of a smartphone by introducing the iPhone X with a notch on the top of the display, it appears like Apple may discontinue its flagship product. The notch received a lot of mixed reactions and some people went totally mad over the company’s decision to add an ugly notch on the device.

Hated or loved, many OEMs have copied the notch design in their devices. In addition to it, Android P, the upcoming version of Android also has native support for the notch design, which would solve the incompatibility issues for apps and will pave a way for app developers to add support for the notch in their apps.

According to the rumors, Apple is expected to unveil three variants of the iPhone this year, which are as follows – 6.1-inch LCD display variant, 5.8-inch iPhone X successor, and 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus variant. Out of these three devices, the 6.5-inch variant is expected to be the more premium device and would suit people who were not satisfied with the screen size of the current iPhone X. The device was spotted earlier this week on Geekbench, an online benchmarking tool.

The case renders of the 6.1-inch LCD variant of the upcoming iPhone has also been leaked online. An investor has predicted that this year’s set of iPhones would have a lot of demand from the customers which in turn may force the company to discontinue the production of the current iPhone X and the iPhone SE.

Take a look at the case renders:

The Cupertino giant is depending more on LG to produce OLED displays to be used on the newer iPhones which would reduce the company’s dependency with Samsung, its main competitor in the market. This year’s iPhones may also feature dual-SIM functionality which the company has not provided in their previous devices.

Gaming smartphones are the becoming more popular with more and more manufacturers developing their own gaming smartphone. The latest company to join this list is HMD Global who is teasing a Nokia gaming smartphone for the first time.

Nokia Mobile India had tweeted out a video which seems to be teasing a gaming phone. But it was quickly deleted after sometime. You can see the teaser in the featured image.

The teaser comes in the form of a video which reads “Stay tuned for a phone you can #GameOn”. It was posted on the official Indian Twitter handle of the company hinting towards a Nokia branded gaming smartphone from the company.

Leaving aside the excitement, we will like to remind you that the company has a habit of over-hyping and over-exaggerating its routine mid-range smartphones.

The company advertised the Nokia 6.1 Plus smartphone as the “most awaited phone”. Moreover the tag #GameOn might be just to hype the regional launch of the Nokia 5.1 Plus and nothing to do with Nokia Gaming smartphone.

However if it is the case, the company is once again over-hyping since the smartphone comes with a 5.8 inch display and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC coupled with P60 chipset. Also it also possible that it is the alleged Nokia 8.1 Plus or Nokia 7.1 Plus which have been on the rumours lately.

However seeing the popularity of gaming smartphones, the company is likely developing a gaming smartphone on its own. Razer recently sent invites for the Razer 2 smartphone to be launched on October 10. Chinese manufacturer Huawei will also be releasing a gaming smartphone this year. The Nokia Gaming smartphone will be competing against the likes of Xiaomi Black SharkASUS ROG phone and Nubia Red Magic.

Samsung to merge Galaxy J series into A series, rebrand On series to M series

Samsung is reportedly planning to reorganise its entire line-up of entry level to upper mid-range line-up according to a new report. Previously we heard that the South Korean manufacturer will be merging the Galaxy S series and the Note series.

The new reports which come from industry sources claims that the lower midrange Galaxy J series will be discontinued and merged into the more premium Galaxy A series. This move of scrapping the Galaxy J series and moving into the Galaxy A series line-up can be cited to the heavy competition from the Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Honor, Vivo, OPPO, etc that dominates the entry level and mid-range segments.

Additionally, the company will be changing its online only Galaxy On brand to a new Galaxy M series. However it is expected as the Galaxy On smartphones are just rebranded Galaxy J devices. So it is still unknown what Samsung has to offer in its Galaxy M series.

This could also be possible that Samsung bring the entry level and lower-midrangers under the Galaxy M brand while the upper midrangers will be merged into the Galaxy A line-up. There will be less naming disparencies and hence less confusion. The company is also rumoured to be working on Galaxy J4 Prime and Galaxy J6 Prime which is now likely to be launched under a different brand.

Considering all above information as genuine, Samsung will left only with Galaxy S series, Galaxy A series and Galaxy M series which looks more systematic and organised.
