The 3C certification in China approved two more models of the Galaxy S10 taking the number to 5 in China. China Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (CMIIT) already granted certification to three models of the smartphone with model number SM-690F, SM-G975F and SM-G073F back in 2018.

The newly certified models with model number SM-G9730 and SM-G9750 are likely to be the Galaxy S10 and the higher Galaxy S10 Plus. The 3C certification revels that they will ship with the EP-TA200 travel charger with 9.0V/1.67A or 5.0V/2.0A output.

From previous reports, the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be available in three variants: a regular version, a Plus version and a flat variant. The handset is said to feature an Infinity-O display with a cut-out notch containing the selfie camera. It is also expected to sport a new in-screen fingerprint scanner that used ultrasonic sound technology along with a technology called “Powershare” (possibly reverse charging).

Google Pixel 3 Lite Spotted in Geekbench. Powered by SD710 & 6GB RAM!

Published

on

Google is rumoured to be working on two mid-range Pixel 3 devices that will be reportedly called Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite. The news has been doing rounds for quite some time and everytime it makes headlines there is some new information about the devices. Finally, the device appeared on benchmarking website GeekBench revealing the specifications of the handset. From the list, it seems that the specifications are of the Pixel 3 Lite XL.

The GeekBench listed the device as Foxconn Pixel 2 XL which could be the new Lite Pixel variant. The listed device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM. However, previous reports indicated that the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite will be powered by mid-range 670 SoC and will not have that much of RAM. The Foxconn Pixel 2 XL managed a 1805 and 5790 points on the single core and multi-core test respectively.

Going back to the spec list, the smartphones powered by the SD 710 will definitely make the phones more affordable than their bigger Pixel siblings without compromising much on the processing power. The SD 710 already powers mid-range handsets such as the Nokia 8.1 Plus. Surprisingly, the RAM storage is more than the current Pixels’s top out at 4GB. It will likely run on stock version of Android 9 Pie being a Pixel device.

From the previous rumours it is expected to get a 12MP rear camera from the premium Pixel 3 offerings and will offer a 8MP front camera. The Pixel 3 speculated to feature a 5.5 inch FHD+ display and backed by a 2,915 while the Pixel 3 XL gets a 6 inch FHD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio.

Foxconn is handling the production of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. If this benchmarks turns out to be true, it will be gearing up more production work from Google in the coming months. If previous rumours are to be believed, the smartphone duo will launch sometime in Spring, possibly around March 2019.
