Enough jokes! Now let’s talk about the camera.

On the front, there is the same 8-megapixel fixed focus OmniVision 8856 sensor.

Also, Asus boasts AI as a core feature in the camera, with 16 scene detection, which automatically adjusts the image according to the scenes.

Is Nokia is working on a Gaming Phone?

Published

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

Published

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.
