Xiaomi’s custom UI software MIUI looks good and performs smooth as well. However, certain customers prefer a stock Android experience instead of the shiny icons and fancy animations. The Chinese manufacturer launched the Mi A2 under the Android One platform back in August last year. Now, there are reports of its successor Mi A3 which is expected to come with the same stock Android experience.

The folks at XDA have found evidence of potential successor of the Mi A2. It was spotted with codenames “pyxis”, “bamboo_sprout”, “and cosmos_sprout”. Xiaomi adds the “sprout” suffix to its Android One smartphones, so the later two are likely Android One devices. On the other hand, the “pyxis” model could be a non-Android One device and the successor to the Mi 6X.

The report claims that these upcoming smartphone may feature an in-screen fingerprint sensor. All the three Xiaomi devices are being tested with “fod” or fingerprint on display. Though there is no need of a powerful chipset like SD 855 for an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor, we highly doubt it as it requires expensive flexible OLED displays.

The handsets will likely get a 32MP selfie camera making them the first Xiaomi smartphones to do so. They will be similar to the Vivo V15 Pro, but with 4-in-1 pixel binning support. The reason for this is Xiaomi is testing the image output of the front sensor as 32MP resolution (6560 x 4928 pixels) with remosic enabled.

There is very little information about the display size, camera resolutions, chipset, battery capacity and other specifications of the Mi A3. But since none of them are flagship devices we can rule out the top-of-the-line SD 855. There Xiaomi handsets are likely to be mid-range device and have mid-range Snapdragon chipsets.

Xiaomi is yet to officially announce the marketing names of the smartphones. We can expect some time before they hit the markets has hardware testing of new devices start weeks before they appear in the hands of testers and months before the marketing materials disseminate to online retailers. We will be covering more details in case of a leak. Till then, keep tuned.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Spotted in Geekbench. Flexes it’s Snapdragon 855 Plus Muscles!

Published

ASUS will be announcing the ASUS ROG Phone 2 on July 23 next week. It will be the first smartphone to be powered by the new Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. Now the device has appeared in benchmarking website GeekBench showing how powerful the new chipset is.

The ASUS ROG Phone 2 is benchmarked as the “asus ASUS_I001DC” with 12GB RAM though we can expect another RAM variant. It runs on Android’s 9 Pie. The spec sheet shows the motherboard name as “msmnile”, the same tag it shows for other devices housing the SD 855. The base frequency is also the same at 1.78GHz but the ROG 2 scores are slightly higher in the tests.

In the single-core test, the tested device managed to score 3612 and 11,103 points on the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. This put the scores a bit higher than the average score of the Snapdragon 855 smartphones. But the difference in scores isn’t large because the difference between the SD855 and the SD855+ is the higher CPU and GPU clock speed of the latter.

Qualcomm claims that the new Snapdragon 855 Plus is designed to offer between gaming performances and enhanced experience with 5G, AI processing, AR and VR. The chipset’s Kyro 485 cores are clocked at a higher 2.96 GHz while the ones at the SD 855 are clocked at 2.84 GHz. The CPU performance boost is about 4.2 percent while the GPU has been claimed to receive a 15 percent boost as well.

As for the ASUS ROG Phone 2, a couple of alleged live images of the smartphone has surfaced online. It shows a familiar design with thick top and bottom bezels and copper accents on the dual front-facing speakers that are the most likely stereo speaker. There is an antenna band at the top left edge suggesting a metallic real panel build.

The new Snapdragon 855 Plus is expected to come with other phones like Black Shark, Xiaomi, Redmi, Nubia’s Red Magic line and Vivo’s iQOO later this year. We will be finding more about the ASUS ROG Phone 2 on July 23. Till then, keep tuned.

Published

With two generations of Xiaomi’s Android One phones, they’re in the works of the next-gen phone which could be named as Mi A3. Usually, the A series follows the design and specifications of “MiX” series of devices. After a lot of rumours, they’d launched Xiaomi CC9 last month. The reports on the web suggest that Xiaomi will follow CC9 lineup for A3 & A3 Lite. Famous tipster @IshanAgarwal24 revealed that the Xiaomi Mi A3 {codenamed bamboo_sprout} will spot Snapdragon 730 SoC while the lower Mi A3 Lite {codenamed cosmos_sprout} will sport a Snapdragon 675 chipset.

Talking about the design, as mentioned earlier it may follow the CC9 line-up most probably. The A3 will spot a 6.39-inch FHD+ display while the A3 lite may spot a 6.01-inch FHD+ display. Both the devices will spot the battery size of 4,030mAh. It they follow the trend of CC9, it will spot a headphone jack. Thankfully Xiaomi will return a headphone jack here and usually, A series would have a smaller capacity battery, but this time they’d solved that issue too.

Ishaan has confirmed that information regarding chipset is confirmed and not likely to change. It the rumours are true, then the Mi A3 would be powerful than the Mi CC9 series and a key differentiator between them will be the processor. The MI CC9 comes with a Snapdragon 710 SoC while the Mi CC9e has a Snapdragon 665 SoC. We don’t have any information regarding the launch date of the devices. However, the brand is launching the Redmi K20 lineup on July 17. The launch of these devices would be in the later Q3/ first of Q4.

Xiaomi also started teasing the phone in their global social media accounts. Which could mean that the global debut of the phone is happening soon.

Realme is scheduled to launch its new smartphone the Realme X in India on July 15. The Chinese company will be launching another device called the Realme 3i and it is confirmed by none other than Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth. While Realme has not released any details about the smartphone, we do know that it will be a direct competitor to the Redmi 7. The Realme 3i has also made an appearance at the benchmarking site GeekBench, spilling the beans on its key specs.

From the GeekBench listing, the Realme 3i will be powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 chipset. The tested variant has 4GB RAM but there could be a 3GB RAM option too. It runs on Android 9 Pie with ColorOS 6.0 on top. It managed a score of 1420 and 5070 points on the single-core and multi-core tests respectively.

The other camera specs and battery unit is yet to be revealed but the handset is speculated to come with a 64MP camera given that Realme had earlier confirmed to bring a 64MP smartphone in the country soon. It could sport a 6.2 inch HD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The Realme 3i is likely to be backed by a 4230 mAh battery.

The device is basically a watered-down variant of the Realme 3 while the company touts the device as being the most ‘stylish champion’, big battery champion’, ‘display champion’ and ‘camera champion’. While the rumored specs look too good on a budget smartphone, we should wait till an official confirmation.

The price and other information are unknown but we don’t have to wait long as the launch is just a few days from now. Flipkart already has a landing page dedicated to the Realme 3i smartphone.
