Xiaomi‘s new phablet i.e. the Mi Max 3 was scheduled to launch later this July, as announced earlier by the CEO. Previous leaks including the recently leaked poster already revealed a lot of details about the device, including the specifications and pricing. Now, an image showcasing the retail box of the unreleased Mi Max 3 has surfaced online.
The image was posted by Xiaomi’s CEO Mr Lei Jun on Chinese social media platform Weibo. The retail packaging of Mi Max 3 looks quite minimal. The box comes with Mi branding on the top right corner, and Max 3 is mentioned at the lower bottom. The model name can also be seen on the visible right side of the box.
Unfortunately, we cannot see any images of the device at the front. No other key specs are visible as well and are suspected to be printed at the back.
Earlier today, we also witnessed the leaked images of the display assembly of the Mi Max 3. The images reveal front panel and the internal circuitry of the same. The display seems to be an 18:9 panel with narrow bezels on sides. Given the fact that there is no notch, upper bezel houses the front camera and sensors, and a bottom chin is present as well.
Coming to the specifications of the device as per the recent TENAA listing, the Mi Max 3 is expected to come with a 6.99-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ (1080 x 2160) resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. While the base variant is said to be powered by Snapdragon 636 SoC, we might see a higher variant with more powerful Snapdragon 710 SoC as well.
The device will pack 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. In the optics departments, it will sport an AI-powered rear dual-camera setup, featuring a 12-megapixel Sony IMX 363 as its primary shooter. An 8-megapixel shooter is given at the front for selfies, aided by AI-based Face Unlock. The device is backed by a large 5,500mAh battery coupled with QuickCharge 3.0. Dual front-firing speakers are what we look forward to. The fingerprint scanner, as usual, sits at the back.
As far as the pricing is concerned, the leaked poster indicates that the Mi Max 3 starts at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs 17,700). The device is expected to come to India along with the Redmi 6 Pro, within next two months. As of now, we look forward to the launch event scheduled later this July. Till then, stay tuned.
OPPO A7 Specs Leaked. Comes SD450 & 6.2 inch 720p Display
Chinese manufacturer OPPO recently launched the OPPO A7X in its home market. Now, it looks like the company is gearing up for the launch of the OPPO A7. Today, the leak revealing all the specifications of the smartphone has surfaced online.
From the leak spec sheet, OPPO A7 will feature a 6.2 inch notched display with a resolution of HD+ (1520 x 720 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19:9. But it’s still unclear whether the phone will come with an iPhone X like notch or a waterdrop one like on OPPO F9. Under the hood, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset paired with Adreno 506 coupled with 3GB or 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be further expanded to 256GB via microSD card.
In the optics department, the OPPO A7 comes with dual camera setup in the rear consisting of a 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and a secondary 2MP camera with f/2.4 aperture. On the front it offers a 16MP camera for selfies and video calling. It runs on ColourOS 5.2 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and is backed by a 4,230 mAh battery. Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB OTG and microUSB. The handset will be available in Glazing Blue and Glaring Gold color options.
To sum it up, the OPPO A7 is just a rebranded Realme 2 with minor difference in the camera configuration and probably in the design aspects of the smartphone. The Realme 2 was launched last month with a price at Rs 8990. The OPPO A7 is expected to come with a similar price.
Huawei Mate 20 Leaked in Hands On Video & Official Case Renders
The Chinese giant Huawei has confirmed the launch of its new Mate 20 series, featuring Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Huawei Mate 20 Lite on October 16th in London. We already have witnessed quite a lot of leaks about the Mate 20 Pro and the Mate 20 Lite (Officially Launched) in leaked images and renders. Now, we have come across a leaked hands-on video of the Mate 20.
The hands-on video posted on Weibo showcases the front and back of the upcoming Huawei Mate 20. It looks more or less similar to the Mate 20 Pro leaks but with a few worth noting differences.
You can have a look at the video below:
As per the video, the back of the device sports a 3D curved glass back body with a triple camera setup placed in a squircle module with an LED flash, just like the Mate 20 Pro. Just below the cameras, we have a fingerprint scanner following which, the branding is given at the bottom. However, the brand name written on the phone is “HYRION” instead of Huawei which seems quite weird.
The device was also leaked in a set of official case renders, take a look:
At the front, the device has an edge to edge bezel-less display with a water drop notch on the top (as seen on Oppo F9 Pro and the upcoming OnePlus 6T) and a bottom chin. Even when the device does not come with a Huawei branding, its design and EMUI’s lock screen confirms it to be a Huawei smartphone. The power button and Volume rockers are placed on the right edge.
As per the previous leaks, the Mate 20 Pro is reported to come with an In-display fingerprint scanner and an IR based Face unlock system at the front, which seems to be missing from the Mate 20, given that it already has a physical fingerprint scanner at the back and the Notch is too small to accommodate anything more than the Selfie camera.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Mate 20 will come with Huawei’s new HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC built on 7nm Finfet process by TSMC like the latest A12 Bionic chip used by Apple in the just-launched iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
Let us wait for the October 16 launch to know exact information about both the Huawei flagships. Till then, stay tuned.
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Renders & Hands On Leaked, Shows Off it’s Triple Cameras!
Samsung recently announced they will be focusing on bringing new technology and innovation to its mid-range devices before its flagships. A new report hints that Samsung will keep true to its word.
A new hands-on image and a press renders of the Galaxy A7 (2018) surfaced online showing it will sport a triple camera setup in the rear, the first time ever for a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. It not only raises the bar of mid-range smartphones but giving a positive nod to the upcoming S10 series next year.
Take a look at the renders:
Here’s the hands on image that was re[prted:
The triple camera like the one seen on Huawei P20 Pro suggests that it will feature up to 3X optical zoom. But since it is a mid-range device, the company may opt for a 2X lossless zoom instead of a 3X one. A wide-angle lens similar to the LG flagships is also expected. It will likely come with OIS, EIS and support for 4K video recording at 30fps.
This is not the first time the vertical three lens camera has been leaked. It was rumoured far back as July and is speculated to have similar specs to last year’s Galaxy A8 Plus that was powered by an Exynos 7885 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
There is also a rumour that the handset will come with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Samsung new liking for the side mounted fingerprint sensor is not limited to this device, it can be seen in the Galaxy S10 (base variant) as well as the Galaxy J6 Plus and the Galaxy J4 Plus. The renders show a slight indent when looked closely confirming the speculations.
Samsung has been teasing the smartphone with taglines related to cameras like “Capture the fun with Samsung” and “4X fun” hinting the four cameras. The Galaxy A7 (2018) will be unveiled at an event on October 11.
