Published

While the Huawei Mate 20 Lite is already official, the Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are still left to be unveiled. The Chinese giant Huawei has already confirmed the launch date to be October 16th, since then, we have seen quite a lot of leaks regarding both the devices including hands-on images, videos and case renders. Now, the Mate 20 Pro has appeared in leaked promo materials ahead of the official launch.

The first leak is an image that shows the Blue color variant of Huawei Mate 20 Pro held in hands by a guy. Although the front ain’t much clearly visible, one can clearly see the curved display and the triple rear camera set up at the back along with an LED flash, placed in a squircle camera module. The back also has a sticker to it which reads out information related to the device, unfortunately, the image itself is not that clear to be zoomed in. There are speculations that this color will be officially named as Morpho Aurora.

Following this image, we have leaked promo materials (presentation) of the device which reveal most of the things about the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in detail.

AS per the slides, both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be powered by the all-new HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor manufactured by TSMC on 7nm FinFet process, unveiled a few weeks earlier at the IFA 2018.

The Mate 20 will come with a 6.53-inch flat screen, 4GB of RAM, 4,000 mAh battery, and IP53 rating while its elder brother will get the perks of having a 6.9-inch curved display, 6GB of RAM, and a slightly bumped up 4,200 mAh battery, followed by an IP67 rating, no IP68 this time too! Another major difference is the lack of 3.5mm jack on the Pro while the former got it right.

Furthermore, Huawei has implemented its New 15W Supercharge technology that is claimed to get you a 70% charge on the 4,200 mAh battery in around 30 minutes (it is quite doubtful due to the fact that the recent Huawei/Honor flagships came with 22.5W (4.5A at 5V) based SuperCharging technology.)

The Mate 20 Pro also gets an In-Display fingerprint scanner and an IR based 3D Face unlock which is claimed to unlock the device in 0.5 seconds, faster than the launched Apple’s iPhone X (trying not to compete with the XS). On the other hand, the regular model lacks both of these technologies and relies on a physical fingerprint scanner present at the back for the same. Interestingly, both of them also get a new Bone Voice ID for unlocking the phone, however, the images suggest that a special pair of wireless Huawei earphones will be mandatory to use this cool feature.

Both phones will bear a 24-megapixel camera at the front for Selfies followed by the triple-lenses at the back. The Mate 20 Pro is speculated to bear a new wide angle lens which will replace the telephoto lens from the P20 Pro. Also, it is expected that both the devices will get same sort of Leica branded rear cameras. Being a typical AI camera phone, the device is touted to pack certain AI features like AI Smart Zoom, which includes moving object detection, automatic focus, and zoom tracking and HiVision (something inspired from Google Lens).

The slides further reveal that the phone supports wireless projection to an external monitor/computer which seems a better solution compared to the what Samsung is offering with DEX.

Last but not the least, Huawei might introduce a new nano-memory card which will be as small as a nano-SIM card and will be available in capacities up to 256GB. Well, this might become a new industry standard soon, who knows 😛

Also take a look at these teasers for the phone:

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 are reported to be launched in Israel by the end of October at a price of NIS 4,000 ($1,108) and NIS 3,000 ($831), respectively. As known to us, the global launch is scheduled for October 16 for us to see what Huawei has actually been cooking in. Till then, stay tuned.

Samsung reportedly working on Full Screen Display Tech with Selfie Camera under Display!

Published

Samsung is known for its innovation in the mobile industry, thanks to its huge R&D and a huge stake in the premium smartphone market due to the same. Now, the fresh reports hint that the Korean giant might be working on a new tech which will allow the front camera and other sensors to be embedded under the display.

As we know, the Notch trend started by Apple last year spoiled almost every other new smartphone from the brands like Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi, and now even OnePlus with the upcoming 6T. Ranging from a wider Notch on the Poco F1 to the little water-drop Notch on Oppo R17 Pro, followed by the Vivo NEX with the pop-up camera module and Oppo Find X with a mechanical slider, most of the mainstream smartphone companies are trying to increase the screen to body ratio and reduce bezels in every possible way they can.

On the other hand, Samsung stayed with its decision of not following Apple, the reason why the S9/S9+ and the Galaxy Note 9 came with slim bezels and skimped on the Notches. Now, the latest tweet by the popular tipster Ice Universe shows us the glimpse of the Samsung OLED Forum conference held in China, on 18th of Oct.

In the conference, Samsung has been talking about the OLED technologies, to be more specific, about the new under-display features such as in-display fingerprint scanners, under-screen cameras, screen-sound technology, and touch-sensitive technology. Further, it is revealed that they are working on a new display technology that would allow for a practical placement of nearly everything ranging from the Selfie camera to the fingerprint sensor under the display (Samsung recently filed a patent for the Optical fingerprint sensor under the display). This will help the company for achieving a display with nearly 100% screen to body ratio without opting for Notch or any other weird implementations.

Another report by SamMobile says that Samsung’s new OLED display will also be capable of transmitting the audio so that the earpiece too can be fitted under the display, which is most likely going to use the advanced bone conduction technology for transmission of sound like we saw with the original Mi Mix. However, Samsung needs to work hard for making it perfect, yes, the Mix had issues with the same.

The report further adds that the company is even testing certain prototypes for these new technologies. Given that the Galaxy S10 launch is not too far, we can expect a nearly bezel-less display with a handful of the above-discussed innovations and something more like an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, a night-vision camera and an eye-motion sensor in the device? Well, who knows. Let us wait for the upcoming leaks and reports to reveal more about what Samsung is actually planning to do. Till then, stay tuned.

Honor Magic 2 Leaked in Live Images, Hands-On Video Out as well

Published

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has been in limelight since long for its upcoming Honor Magic 2. With this new smartphone, the company aims to take on the Xiaomi’s Mix series, competing to make a bezel-less flagship with best possible and practical experience. As teased initially, the device comes with an edge to edge display and a sliding mechanism for cameras just like the Oppo Find X but with a different implementation. We now have the leaked back of the device along with a video which showcases the sliding mechanism of this bezel-less beauty, ahead of the scheduled launch date of October 31.

Honor Magic 2

Let’s talk about the leaked image first which reveals the back side of the alleged Honor Magic 2. As per the image, the device comes with a glossy glass back in black and gradient twilight color options shown here. The back houses a total of three cameras, two cameras along with an LED flash followed by the third segregated lens giving it a look reminiscent of that on the Huawei P20 Pro. The Twilight version has “Honor” branding on the bottom left corner while the black one surprisingly reads “Eiffel”, following the same, the former carries the “AI Vision” branding while the latter reads out “Dual Lens”.

Furthermore, there is no fingerprint scanner present on the back of the handset, which supports the rumors of it having an In-display fingerprint scanner. These images completely smash the possibility of four rear cameras claimed by some previously leaked renders.

You can watch the video showcasing the slider mechanism below:

Also, we recently witnessed the leaked retail box of the device. The black colored matte finish box had the popular car maker Tesla’s branding along with the Honor Magic 2 text at the bottom, hinting at the chances that Huawei might partner up with Tesla to bring in a special Tesla edition of the Magic 2 like they have done in their Mate series i.e. the Mate 10 Porsche and the recently unveiled Mate 20 RS Porche edition.

Honor Magic 2 Box

As of now, we know only limited things about the upcoming Honor Magic 2. Firstly, it is said to bear nearly 100% screen to body ratio which should be somewhere around 95% as per our expectations. Moreover, rumors suggest that the device will sport a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels and a sliding camera mechanism (manually driven, requires to be operated using physical force instead of automated motors) which includes a selfie camera, earpiece, and other sensors to accommodate the full body display at the front.

The device will be powered by the company’s latest flagship 7nm Kirin 980 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The camera setup here might function similar to the Mate 20 / Mate 20 Pro’s cameras including a wide angle, a telephoto, and a regular high-resolution RGB lens.

Other leaks hint at the absence of 3.5mm jack and a large graphene-film cooled battery just like the Mate 20. Given that the launch is near, let us wait for 31st of October to know what it was all about, also, let us see if this device slays the Mi Mix 3 which is arriving a few days earlier, on Oct 25. Till then, stay tuned.

Xiaomi is all set to launch its latest flagship – the Mi Mix 3 next week and is on the final round of preparations. The launch event is expected to happen on the 25th of this month. The company had been testing 5G connectivity a few months back and it appears like they’re ready to unveil the Mi Mix 3 with support for 5G, making it the first commercial smartphone to feature 5G.

While we were expecting the Mi Mix 3 to feature the in-display fingerprint scanner technology, new live images have leaked online hinting the presence of a physical fingerprint scanner on the rear. This also raises the possibility to the existence of multiple variants of the device, just like how the company handled its Mi 8.xiaomi-mi-mix-3

The images feature the Black and Blue color variants of the alleged Mi Mix 3. Both the devices sport the physical fingerprint sensor. The cameras are vertically stacked resembling the iPhone X with LED flash between the two sensors. The presence of USB Type-C port in the device is also clearly visible from the leaked image.
