Based on the latest reports, leading Chinese smartphone manufacturer Honor has sent out invitations to a new smartphone launch scheduled on January 22, 2019 in Paris. According to Honor, the new smartphone will be running on Kirin 980 chipset and will be sporting an in-screen camera display, which is the main highlight. Even though the invitation is out, Honor has kept the name of the upcoming smartphone as a secret.

The display hole design is a modified and more optimized version of the display notch that have became a trend among smartphone makers after Apple introduced it in their iPhone X. In the display hole approach, the front camera of the smartphone will be placed within the screen, instead of the notch or on the bezel as seen in other smartphones.

The display hole camera design can be seen as a step towards the development of under display solutions for front camera, inorder to fully eliminate the notch. While the new design approach might seem better than the existing notch design, at the end of the day it may still cause the discomforts of a notch, but at a reduced level.

The image in the invitation reveals that the front camera will be placed at the top-left of the smartphone. While there is very little information available about the new mystery smartphone, the Kirin 980 chipset and the new display hole design indicates that it will indeed be a premium offering from Honor.

Previously there were reports suggesting that other smartphone manufacturers are also planning to introduce the new notch design in their devices, with Samsung getting ready to launch their Infinity O display phone, Samsung Galaxy A8s. But Huawei, Honor’s parent company will be launching a new smartphone with similar design, the Huawei Nova 4 in the coming weeks.

Honor is calling the event as a Global product launch, which indicates that the smartphone will become available in India around the same time. And it is also rumoured that the phone will be the successor to Honor View 10, the Honor View 20!

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.

The exact camera specifications along with the pricing of the Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro are yet to be revealed. The smartphones are successors to the Realme 3 and the Realme 3 Pro respectively which were launched in India earlier this year. Like other manufacturers like OnePlus, Realme is skipping number 4 and jumping number 5 as number 4 is considered an unlucky number in the Chinese culture.

The Chinese manufacturer is expected to unveil the Realme X Pro which houses a quad-camera 64MP sensor. The phone is said to be announced before Diwali and not on August 20. All future Realme smartphones will now have a quad-camera setup. This includes all the upcoming smartphones under Realme X series, Realme Pro series, and Realme series.
