Redmi Note 8 Series, comprising of two phones, the Note 8 and Note 8 Pro are the next hyped budget smartphones, that are going to be launched very soon. Just three days ago, the company had officially announced the launch date of the devices, along with a few other details and today, the official render of Redmi Note 8 has been revealed. Here’s the official render of the Redmi Note 8.
The real hype-creating phone is the Redmi Note 8 Pro, which is said to have a 64-megapixel camera on the back. This would be the first phone in the world to pack a 64-megapixel camera, as Xiaomi had showcased earlier this month along with teasing a 100-megapixel camera. The Redmi Note 8 is also going to have somewhat a different spec sheet from what was expected, as the phone is now being said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 chipset, instead of MediaTek’s Helio G90. So, the Redmi Note 8 would pack the same chipset as Mi A3, but now, a quad-camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary lens is confirmed as the official render is here as we can see four sensors and the text that says ‘48MP AI Camera’.
A few more good improvements are imminent as it is being claimed that the Redmi Note 8 Pro’s 64-megapixel camera would have up to 25x zoom. In terms of battery as well, we may see an upgrade from 4000mAh or 4100mAh to a bigger 4500mAh battery. The company has also teased a notebook, called RedmiBook 14.
The teaser doesn’t seem to reveal much about the RedmiBook 14, but it is evident that the notebook will be launched alongside the Redmi Note 8 Series of smartphones, on the same day and it will be powered by an Intel Core i7 Ice Lake 10th Gen processor. Apart from these small details, nothing much is known about the RedmiBook 14 yet, but due to its naming, we are just making a wild guess that it will be a 14-inch notebook!
Galaxy A51 Reveled in CAD Renders! Shows off it’s Punch Hole Display & Quad camera setup!
Samsung’s Galaxy A-Series is getting expanded with the upcoming Galaxy A51, which is believed to be the successor of the A50s. As a mid-range smartphone and successor to the Galaxy A50s, the Galaxy A51 is getting a few upgrades, but as well as some changes in design. The phone is expected to launch by the starting of 2020 and already we know that Samsung has started manufacturing the phone in its facility in Noida, India. But the renders of Galaxy A51 have been leaked by OnLeaks. The renders provide some crucial details regarding the design of the phone.
From the render, it is clear that the Galaxy A51 will come with a flat punch-hole display that will house the front-facing camera. Some sources claim that the phone will have a big 6.5-inch display and the device will be 8.5mm thick if we consider the camera bump as well. On the back, there are four cameras, which are placed in a rectangular module that protrudes out a bit. Three cameras are placed vertically and the fourth one is placed on the side, above which there is an LED flash.
The back of the phone has curved edges and it’s quite minimal in terms of looks as there is just the Samsung logo. There is no sign of a fingerprint scanner, so we can assume the phone would come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The renders also reveal the placement of buttons and ports. The volume rockers and the power button are placed on the right edge of the device. The left edge has nothing but a SIM Card Tray. The bottom of the phone house the 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, and the speaker.
In terms of specifications, there is no solid information. But as per popular tipster Ishan Agarwal, the Samsung Galaxy A51 come with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display. He also mentioned that the phone will come with Android 10, out of the box with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 on top. The phone will pack a big 4000mAh battery and in terms of camera, there will be a primary 48MP sensor.
In terms of processor, if we believe the alleged listing of the phone on Geekbench, the phone should be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9611 chipset, coupled with 4GB of RAM. However, there is a possibility of another variant of Galaxy A51 with 6GB of RAM, in that case, there will be two variants- 4GB+64GB and 6GB+128GB. Apart from these minor details, no solid specs sheet is available at the moment, but as the launch date approaches, we expect some more details to be leaked out. Keep checking us on Facebook for all the updates.
Samsung W20 5G Foldable Smartphone Listed On TENAA
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold was a hit or miss kinda smartphone, but it was a miss as it didn’t really meet the expectations of users at all. Problems with the protective cover and all slowed down the hype to almost a situation where we could just believe that the phone doesn’t even exist. But Samsung was already working on the next foldable smartphone and many reports were coming out regarding that. Now it looks like Samsung is bringing the next foldable phone- Samsung Galaxy W20 5G.
As the name itself implies to 5G, we are quite sure that the phone won’t be cheap at all, considering that it’s a foldable phone and it has got 5G. China Mobile, the world’s 4th largest carrier in terms of subscriber base has teased the phone. On a Weibo post, the company teased the Samsung Galaxy W20 5G.
The photo has texts that confirm the claim and we can see a foldable phone as well, partially open. It may be the successor to W2019, which was a flip phone which was launched at the same time a year back. However, the Samsung Galaxy W20 5G won’t have a physical keypad, instead, there will be a folding display similar to the Galaxy Fold. It is not still very clear whether the device folds horizontally or vertically, like the upcoming Moto Razr.
From the teaser, we can guess that the display is within the inner fold as the light is emerging from the inside. The Weibo post confirmed the launch of Galaxy W20 5G in November itself, which means that right now, Motorola and Samsung will go head to head in terms of foldable phones. Though, at this moment, the hype for the Moto Razr seems to be quite a bit high due to the nostalgic attraction towards its predecessor and due to the similar design. The Moto Razr interesting will have a display on the outer side and a tall display inside. As of now, it’s confirmed that the phone will be available in China via China Telecom, but Samsung hasn’t made any official statements regarding the W20 5G or its availability in other markets yet.
However, as usual, for such an innovative phone, leaks are already pointing towards the specs of Samsung Galaxy W20 5G. As someone spotted the phone on TENAA, we have got a few details and a few photos of the phone. As per the TENAA listing, the Galaxy W20 5G will sport a 4.6-inch display and will pack a big 4,135mAh battery. Also, we have got our hands on a few photos of the device.
From these images, it is quite evident that the phone will be similar to the Galaxy Fold in terms of how the display functions. We can see a quite noticeable camera bump and buttons at the edges. However, crucial details regarding the display are not available yet.
