In accordance to the previous leaks, the Oppo F9 was speculated to launch as the Oppo A7X in China on September 20. Now, the renders of the device have leaked, revealing the design of the device along with its full specifications.
Following the previous reports, the Oppo A7x seems to be the Oppo F9 for China with few minor changes in hardware. In terms of design, it looks very identical to the F9 with its gradient glossy back and vertically stacked dual cameras along with the LED flash, followed by the oval-shaped fingerprint scanner. At the front, it follows the same design language with a tear-drop shaped notch and a bottom chin. The earpiece is present above the notch housing the camera.
Coming to the leaked specifications, the Oppo A7X comes with a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with a FullHD+ resolution of 2340×1080 pixels, same as the F9.
Powering the phone is the Mediatek Helio P60 SoC, coupled with Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which can be expanded further using MicroSD card.
For photography, the device features a 16MP + 2MP dual Camera setup at the back, while we have a 16MP shooter at the front. Though the rear camera configuration seems identical, the F9 has a higher resolution 25MP selfie shooter compared to the 16MP on the A7X.
Another major difference is the battery capacity. The Oppo A7X sports a larger 4,320mAh battery compared to the 3,500mAh on the F9. Other than that, the measurement remains same at 156.70 x 74.00 x 7.90 (height x width x thickness), however, given the fact that it has a much larger battery in comparison, it is quite surprising to see that the weight of A7X is just 169 grams which is exactly the same as F9.
Also, looking at the way Realme takes inspiration from its former parent brand Oppo, gives rise to the speculation of this device being launched as the Realme 2 Pro in India which was teased by the company to arrive this month, during the Realme 2 launch.
Moreover, the device is reported to be priced at CNY 2099 (roughly Rs. 22,000) and is expected to be launched in China on 20th of September.
Samsung Galaxy A8s Leaked with Infinity O Display!
Samsung launched two smartphones last month in China – Galaxy A6s and Galaxy A9s and also teased the upcoming Galaxy A8s smartphonebin the same event. The teaser image from the launch event revealed an edge-to-edge design with a hole in the display for the front camera.
Now, alleged images of the Samsung Galaxy A8s display assemble and screen protector reveals an Infinity-O display. If these images are indeed real, the device will have a “punch hole” cut-out at the top of the display which is the first of its kind.
After avoiding the notch trend, Samsung showcased three types of notched displays at the Samsung Developers Conference (SDC) earlier this month. A recent leak claimed that Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A90 would be the first devices to sport the Infinity Design display but now it appears that the Galaxy A8s will be the company’s first smartphone to feature the Infinity-O display. Like the Galaxy A6s, there is a possibility that the Galaxy A8s maybe be available exclusively in China initially.
From the alleged images, the Galaxy A8s “punch hole” cut-out will be placed at the top middle portion of the display and not in sideways as suggested by some sources. As the handset will not have a traditional notch, it will be able to achieve a high screen-to-body ratio than current Samsung Galaxy devices. The similar design is also said to be adopted on the next year’s Galaxy S10.
The Samsung Galaxy A8s is expected to be positioned between the Galaxy A6s and the Galaxy A9s. It is said to feature a 6 inch display and powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset. There is also the possibility of the South Korean manufacturer going with a SD 670 or SD 675 if it is launched in early 2019. It is expected to be coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage while sporting a triple camera setup at the rear. Samsung is yet to give an official word on the launch date but we can expect it to be released by the end of this year or early next year.
Leaked Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 Renders reveal a Notched display
Asus made a huge hit in the Indian market with its Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 which stayed as one of the best smartphones under Rs. 15,000 for quite a while. Lately, we have had some reports about its upcoming successor i.e. the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 counting in the certification by EEC, leaked specs and the launch date for Indonesia as confirmed by the company. Now, the device has appeared online with its first ever renders, giving us an idea about the frontal design of the same.
The render of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 (ASUS_X01BD_1) sourced from Google Play Console listing reveals an edge-to-edge display, a Zenfone 5Z like Notch on top and a significant bottom chin. Looking at the icons, one can confirm that it will run Stock Android, just like its predecessor, instead of ZenUI which they used with the recently unveiled Zenfone Max M2 and Lite L1. The listing also confirms the device to sport 6GB of RAM, although we expect a 4GB model as well.
Coming to the alleged specifications tweeted earlier by Roland Quandt from WinFuture, the Zenfone Max Pro M2 will come with a 6-inch IPS display having a Full-HD+ resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. Under the hood, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 4/6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage.
Further, it is tipped to come with triple rear cameras whose exact specs are yet to be known but we expect a primary RGB shooter clubbed with a depth sensor along with a wide angle shooter. It is also safe to assume a large battery (M1 had a 5000mAh cell) while the device will run stock Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with Pie coming soon.
We dont know much about this upcoming phone but provided that it’s coming on Dec 11 in Indonesia, let’s keep an eye on it. Till then, stay tuned.
Google Pixel 3 Lite Hands On Images & Specs Leaked!
Before the Google Launched Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL, rumours about two other devices in the Pixel 3 series were already floating around. Seemingly, the one called Pixel Ultra was supposed to replace the Pixel 3 XL, but we didn’t really see it making to the daylight. The other one was sort of a “budget” Pixel device, with mid-range specifications.
New leaks floating around which first appeared in a Russian tech blog called Rozetked, features an actual live piece of this new phone, dubbed as the Pixel 3 Lite. And guess what? It is having a headphone jack! At the first glance, the plastic build of the phone isn’t giving that Pixel vibe. The back mostly resembles the Pixel 3, and the front is having thicker bezels and doesn’t have a notch.
Take a look at the device here:
It’s having a neon yellow coloured power button just below the volume rockers in the right side. It’s having a 5.56-inch display, with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. The display is not an AMOLED one, so they might be opting for an IPS LCD display in this one as part of the cost cutting.
The device’s specs has also been revealed by the screenshots of AIDA64 system info app & another benchmark app, take a look:
Snapdragon 670, Qualcomm’s new SoC in the Snapdragon 6xx series, is said to be powering the device. This SoC hasn’t did a debut in the US market yet, which adds to the speculations that this device will be only for the Asian markets, seemingly India.
Other specifications include 4GB RAM, 32GB of storage, no expandable storage, a 12MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 2,915mAh battery backing the power needs. There has been no leaks or speculations about the pricing.
This budget Pixel device (possibly one more) was already confirmed to be coming to India earlier, with a price tag of a midranger. It was also rumoured earlier that Google is working with the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi to manufacture a mid ranger, and this might be that phone.
