Realme to Unveil Its 64-Megapixel Mobile Camera Technology on August 8th

Published

on

Realme, as a new brand in the smartphone market, has established itself as a prominent player, especially in the Indian market. Realme CEO Madhav Seth had hinted a while ago that the company will bring the world’s first smartphone with a 64-megapixel camera.

Today, the company has officially announced that an event would take place in Delhi on August 8. In this Camera Innovation Event, as Realme calls it, the company will unveil its 64-megapixel quad-camera technology.

Earlier, an image was spotted on Chinese social media website Weibo, and that image was supposedly clicked using a Redmi smartphone that has a 64-megapixel camera. But, as Realme has already announced the event to showcase their technology around 64-megapixel sensor, looks like the company is ready to be the world’s first smartphone maker to introduce a phone with a 64-megapixel camera. This step surely makes sense, as we, as well as consumers,  can feel the heat of this fight between Xiaomi and Realme.

As of now, only Samsung has developed a 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor which has got the highest resolution among Samsung’s 0.8μm-pixel image sensor lineup. If Realme picks it up to bring new phones, that would be great. Till now, Realme has introduced phones with only dual-camera setups and even their latest phone, the Realme X holds a dual-camera setup on the back where we can find a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture and a second 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture.

Ironically enough, Realme, despite putting its best efforts to beat everyone else, didn’t put a wide-angle or telephoto lens on the Realme X. But, well we can’t also blame them much because of the low price tag. But, with the quad-camera setup and 64-megapixel camera, somehow it can be expected that Realme is working on a true flagship phone to now compete with the brands like OnePlus and ASUS, in a higher price segment.

Xiaomi, Oppo & Vivo joins hands to develop Fast File Sharing Service

Published

on

Chinese smartphone giants have come together to develop a service that will let users transfer files, without installing any other apps or signing up for any services. Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo have officially announced a new cross-brand direct file transfer alliance today. Smartphones mace by these three brands would soon be able to transfer files at a speed of up to 20 MBps without any third-party app. This is a step that may turn out to be a nice way to provide a seamless experience like AirDrop on Apple devices. Color OS, Funtouch OS and MIUI announced the same on their Weibo accounts as well.

File sharing between Android phones is a mess. Android users had the ability to use Wi-Fi Direct to share files. With a similar approach, developers brought apps like Xender, ShareIt. But those apps were soon flooded with ads and annoying notifications. Xiaomi joined the league later with Mi Drop, an ad-free app that users can download for free and transfer files easily. Recently, the app was renamed to ShareMe. Google also brought File Go, a file manager which also lets users transfer files between phones. However, the problem isn’t solved. As Xender has established itself as one of the most popular file-sharing apps, most people use it. As of now, there are no apps that support file sharing between phones that have different apps installed. So, to address the issue and solve a big problem like this.

Due to the lack of a native file sharing service on Stock Android as well as due to the fact that brand modifies Android as per their wish, there weren’t such service available to consumers. However, this alliance will make it a bit easier for Android phone users to transfer files. The service will let users transfer files in multiple file formats such as photos, videos, songs, documents, etc.

This alliance makes so much sense right now because these three brands, i.e. Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi collectively hold 50% of the smartphone market share in China. Also, we may see OnePlus joining the alliance as both Oppo and Vivo, as well as OnePlus are subsidiaries of BBK Electronics. As of now, it is known that the service will be offered to the public under the open beta program, by the end of this month.

Nokia 7.2 Spotted in GeekBench. Comes with Snapdragon 660!

Published

on

HMD is expected to launch the Nokia 7.2 later this month in China and a global release at IFA in September.  Ahead of the official unveiling, the mid-range Nokia smartphone is spotted on the  benchmarking site Geekbench. The benchmark result reveals key details about the phone ‘s specs including its chipset.

The smartphone was benchmarked in Geekbench as the “HMD Global Nokia 7.2”. According to the listing, the device has 6GB RAM and runs on Android 9 Pie. We can expect other RAM variants too but this should be the highest RAM option. The predecessor Nokia 7.1 was available in 3GB RAM and 6GB RAM variants.

The Geekbench listing doesn’t mention the chipset and the motherboard says “Daredevil” which is the phone’s codename. However taking its base frequency of 1.84GHz and comparing to other benchmarked devices, it will be powered by the Snapdragon 660. So, the rumours about the Nokia 7.2 being powered by the SD 660 turned out to be true. This is a fair upgrade considering the Nokia 7.1 came with a Snapdragon 636 chipset.

Nokia 7.2

As for its performance, the device managed to score 1604 and 5821 points in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. They are similar to the score of Redmi Note 7 which have the same SD 660 chipset. The handset is said to sport a triple rear camera setup stacked in a circular housing. The configuration of the cameras is unknown but we can expect it to have ZEISS lens. Moreover, it should come with a FHD+ display and a rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor.

HMD is yet to reveal the remaining specifications of the Nokia 7.2. We have to wait till the launch event to known the full specs, price and availability of the device. Till then, keep tuned.
