Redmi Note 7 Pro Teased! To Feature 48MP Sony IMX586 Sensor

Published

on

Xiaomi announced its latest iteration of the Redmi Note series today in an event held at China. The major attraction of the event was indeed the Redmi Note 7. It received a lot of attraction of which the 48 MP sensor is indeed the one which created a buzz among the budget segment.

Now that the specifications of the Redmi Note 7 are out, the expectations for the Pro variant are pretty high. Right after the launch of the Redmi Note 7, the brand teased the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro on the stage.

The first major change in the Redmi Note 7 Pro is the sensor used in the primary camera. The Redmi Note 7 makes use of a Samsung GM1 sensor for its 48 MP sensor. But on the Redmi Note 7 Pro, the scenario gets different. It is expected to pack Sony’s IMX 586 sensor. If that sounds familiar, that is the sensor used in the Honor View20.

There are rumours regarding the chipset which is going to be utilized on the handset. A possibility of Snapdragon 675 or the flagship chipset Snapdragon 855 is expected on the handset. This might turn out to be true as Redmi is now a sub-brand and we have seen the processor used in other Xiaomi sub-brand device Poco F1.

The handset is scheduled to be unveiled on Chinese New Year which falls on the 5th of February. Other than these, we don’t expect other change in specifications and it will resemble the Redmi Note 7 which includes a  6.3-inch FHD+ LTPS display, 3/4/6 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of internal storage, 48+5 MP rear camera, 13 MP front camera, 4000mAh battery with QC 4.0 support.

We’ll get to know if the brand has any changes in these specifications in the leaks which might take place in the upcoming days or when Redmi officially launches the product. Till then, stay tuned for updates.

Oppo Reno2 With Quad Camera To Launch In India First, Camera Details Revealed!

Published

on

Oppo Reno is the latest flagship phone lineup from Oppo. After the first from the lineup, Oppo Reno was launched, it created a huge buzz in the smartphone users community. Just at the starting of this month, we came to know that Oppo is working on the next Reno, and also, we came to know that the phone will launch first in India. Today, more details have emerged and this time, the info we have right now is official.

However, at that time nothing was official. But today, Oppo has officially teased the next phone from Oppo Reno lineup. The phone is named Oppo Reno2, which is a bit of surprise as Oppo is named their phones in quite a complex way. Anyway, the Oppo Reno2 will be launched first in India, as speculated on August 28.

This is quite a big step for a brand like Oppo and this somehow indicates that the company is willing to trade on dangerous grounds by introducing flagship phones first in India. Here’s the teaser, in case you haven’t seen it yet.

The company, in the teaser, mentioned a thing or two about the special features of the phone. Oppo Reno2 will come with quad-camera setup on the back and will have 20x zoom. This is a huge leap from the current Oppo Reno smartphone, which has a 10x zoom. However, there is no word regarding what kind of technologies the company is using on the phone or which camera sensor is being used on Oppo Reno2.

But well, the official teaser wasn’t enough for smartphone enthusiasts it seems. An account by the name Fengchao Technology on Weibo, posted on China’s Facebook that the Oppo Reno2 will have a  48-megapixel primary camera. Along with it, there will be a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, which will offer a 20x zoom. He suggested that there will be an 8-megapixel super wide-angle lens and there will be a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor. The 2-megapixel monochrome sensor is something pretty uncommon on smartphones.

Also, just now it has been brought to our notice that a new Oppo device bearing the PCKM70 model number has passed through China’s Compulsory Certification Agency (CCC). The listing reveals that the phone comes with Oppo’s proprietary VOOC 3.0 for 20W fast charging and supports 5G connectivity. As of now, as flagship phones are the only ones getting 5G support, so it won’t be surprising if Oppo Reno2 supports 5G as well or if Oppo brings a separate 5G variant of Oppo Reno2. However, as these are unofficial pieces of info from different sources, I would advise you to take it with a pinch of salt.
