We’ve had the reports of Google working on a mid-range phone since long, even before the Pixel 3 launch. During the same time, Google teased a mini-sized phone on its Instagram handle hinting the arrival of a mid-range Pixel which didn’t happen in reality though. Now, Google’s latest ARCore app on tear down reveals two new devices which are most likely to be the upcoming mid-range phones by the company.

The tear down of latest ARCore v1.5 app done by the folks at Android Police reveals something interesting compiled up in the source code. The source code had the list of supported devices including Huawei’s Mate 20 X, Honor 8X, Honor Magic 2, T-Mobile’s OnePlus 6T (single SIM) and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3. Surprisingly, the list also contained two unknown devices with their code names as Bonito and Sargo. If in case you aren’t aware of, Google has been code-naming its smartphones after fishes and given that Bonito and Sargo are names of fish species, it is most likely that the phones could be yet another upcoming Pixels by the software giant.

Nonetheless, even Nokia has been following that trend for code-naming their smartphones so its not yet safe to assume that these are actually Google-made phones.

As far as the previous reports are concerned, Google has been working on a mid-range smartphone that is reportedly being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. Lately, the device has also been reported to arrive either by the end of 2018 or by the beginning of next one. Moreover, if this turns out to be true, then Sargo is most likely to be a smaller and toned-down version of the duo since Sargo is a smaller fish than Bonito. Anyways, let’s wait for the upcoming leaks and reports to see what Google has actually been cooking in. Till then, stay tuned.

LG is all set for the launch of its new G-series smartphone at the IFA 2019 event in Berlin. The phone is expected to be named as LG G8X in international markets and will be the successor to the LG G8s ThinQ. In Korea, it will launch as the LG V50S.

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.

Under the hood, it will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset. The device will sport a dual-camera setup on the rear. 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.
