Published

Just a while ago, the Chinese smartphone giant teased its upcoming Huawei Nova 4 in a promo poster on Weibo that showcased the design outline of the phone along with the hint for an in-display camera. In the meanwhile, the phone was also allegedly spotted in the wild, being used by a commuter. Now, in the hurry of competing with the Korean manufacturer Samsung, Huawei has revealed the device with a camera hole in the screen in advance, for the first time.

Taking the opportunity on the occasion of a large-scale celebration for the 18th birthday of the Chinese singer Jackson Yee, the company has showcased the device live (streamed over the internet) in advance of its official announcement which is set for December.

Looking at the images, one can clearly see the black cutout on screen’s top left corner which accommodates the front camera. The phone seems almost bezel-less, except for that bottom chin which we expect to be rectified during the final product launch. Unfortunately, the company didn’t reveal the back of the device, so the design and number of rear cameras remain a mystery.

Now, some might complain of the not so thin side bezels, but on looking closely, you’ll get to know that it’s actually a case instead of the bezel. Yes, the phone was covered with a case in order to hide the back as their sole purpose was to showcase the in-display camera tech.

This would also mean that the device will skimp on IR based facial unlock system given by the company on other flagship phones. As for the specs, the phone is expected to be powered by the latest Kirin 980 SoC. Apart from that, we may also see an AMOLED display backed by a large battery with SuperCharge and Android 9 Pie.

The launch date is yet to be confirmed but the company is said to unveil the device somewhere in December, along with a toned-down Huawei Nova 4i. Price is expected to be around Rs. 35,000-40,000. Samsung too is planning to bring its Galaxy A8s with In-display camera during the same period. Let’s wait for the upcoming leaks and rumours, till then, stay tuned.

LG W10 Live Images Leaked. Triple Cameras & Waterdrop Notch!

Published

Recently LG has announced their upcoming smartphone series, named as the W series. However, LG didn’t say how many smartphones it will launch under this series. At present, it is speculated that there are at least two phones being prepared, and the live video of one among it, the LG W10 has been leaked online.

According to reports, the W10 is the base model of the W series. The leaked image reveals that the W10 will be having a curvy design, unlike the flat design as claimed by an earlier rumor. The fit and finish of the back panel suggest that the back panel might be made of metal, instead of glass. In the image, we can see that the back panel has a glossy finish.

The rear camera setup is mounted vertically, and we can only see the flash which is placed at the bottom, in the leaked image. However, the height of the camera mounting suggests that it will be spotting a dual camera setup. As we can see in the image, the LG W10 also has a fingerprint sensor which is mounted in the rear, at the traditional position.

The model in the leaked image is shown sporting a purple color which is rare for LG smartphones, and also doesn’t have a gradient color finish. Apart from that, there is a 3.4mm audio jack at one side of the USB port, and on the other side, we have the speaker.

It is reported that the LG W10 will be priced at around $214 (RS.15,000). The other smartphones on the W series might be named as W20 and W30, according to some reports. As of now, LG has released no official statement about neither the leaked images nor the launch date and specifications of the W10.

A Radically Different Set of Pixel 4 Renders Shows very iPhone-esque Design!

Published

on

By

A month ago Google launched the budget-friendly offering of their flagship pixel series, the Pixel 3a &3a XL in Google I/O 2019 held at California. Apparently, now all eyes are on their upcoming flagship, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. According to the latest reports, the schematics of these upcoming Pixel smartphones have been leaked online. However, since the renders are based on prototypes, there might be changes in the original product.

Looking at the leaked renders, the first thing that will come to our mind is the unusually large square camera bump similar to that on the leaked renders of Apple iPhone XI, and the absence of a physical fingerprint sensor. The large size of the camera bump indicates that there will be multiple cameras in the rear. Guessing from the size of the square, we are expecting a triple camera setup in the rear, for the least. The Pixel smartphones are known for their camera performance, and looking at the render it seems Google will be stepping up its game in the camera segment.

The missing fingerprint sensors in the leaked render indicates that Google might skip the physical sensor for either an in-display fingerprint sensor or 3D face-unlock. There are also chances that the new Pixel devices will be coming with both the before mentioned unlocking features.

In the render, the earpiece is placed on top of the screen, which indicates that Google might retain the notch. Coming to other details, there are two speaker grills on both sides of the USB Type-C port, which means that the upcoming Pixel 4 smartphones will be ditching the front facing speaker design. The volume and power button is placed at the right edge while the left edge is bare. Also, there is no 3.4mm audio jack according to the render.

While there isn’t much information available about the specs of the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, some reports suggest that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Google usually launches their flagships in October and it is expected that they will be doing the same with the Pixel 4 too.
