Samsung Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A90 are speculated to be the first devices by the company to feature the new Infinity displays showcased at the Samsung Developers Conference (SDC 2018) last week. The South Korean manufacturer revealed four types of Infinity displays of which three came with various notches.

The two smartphones appears to be the first models to have a display notch since the company has managed without notch by including the Infinity Display design having thin bezels on the side but significant space for front camera and sensors at the top and a chin on the bottom.

Now, Russian tipster Eldar Murtazin claims that the Galaxy A90 and Galaxy A70 sporting the new Infinity Display panels will debut in February next year. They are supposed to be the successors to the Galaxy A7 (2018) and the Galaxy A9 (2018) models which debuted with triple cameras and quad cameras at the rear respectively. They are expected to be priced competitively despite being an upgrade.

Samsung revealed three type of notches: Infinity-U, Infinity-V and Infinity-O with the letters named after the shape in which they are cut out from the regular screen space. It is not clear which type of design will be included in the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A90. However the company teased its Galaxy A8s with the Infinity-O display hole design. The notchless display is likely available to premium Galaxy Series handsets like the Galaxy S10. Ben Geskin who is known for visualising rumours and leaked design render, recently posted an images showing the four types of new Infinity Display. It gives an idea what to expect from upcoming Samsung devices.

The report specified that that Galaxy A30, Galaxy A40, Galaxy 70, Galaxy A80 will come with AMOLED display panels while the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A60 will have LCD panels.

The OLED and LCD models are said to be released in markets like Korea, North America while the LCD models are for the price-sensitive markets like India and some other Southeast Asian markets. The ultimate aim is to bring down the costs of the devices lower than KRW 3,00,000 (Rs 19,300 approx).

Xiaomi Shows Off 100W Super Charge Turbo, To be seen first on upcoming Redmi flagship!

Published

By

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is finally back in the innovation game after a while now. This time, they have come up with something in the charging department. A few weeks back, the brand unveiled the fastest wireless charging technology which could output up to 20W.

This time, they have taken the wired charging to the next level by introducing Super Charge Turbo which can offer up to 100W (expected to be 20V/5A). This could charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0 to 100% in just 17 minutes. To put this in perspective, the current leading wired charging is Oppo’s SuperVOOC Flash Charge 50W (10V/5A) and Huawei’s 55W fast charging. This will be twice as fast as the current charging techniques.

Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi has officially teased Super Charge Turbo on Weibo by publishing a video where this new charging technique is compared on a smartphone with 4000 mAh battery against the Oppo R17 Pro which has a 3,700 mAh battery and 50W SuperVOOC flash charge. The Oppo R17 Pro will take around 35 minutes for a complete charge using its SuperVOOC flash charge. Take a look at the video below:

Moreover, Lu Weibing, president of Redmi division has announced that the sub-brand Redmi will be the first from Xiaomi to mass produce and implement the Xiaomi Super Charge Turbo which is quite surprising as the brand has decided to focus on the Redmi lineup more than the original Mi lineup. There were rumors in the past regarding an upcoming flagship Redmi smartphone. This technology will be seen in this next flagship which will be featuring Snapdragon 855 chipset.

There is no exact timeline regarding the arrival of this technology or the smartphone harnessing this feature. We’ll have to wait as of now for the brand to reveal further details. Till then, stay tuned for updates.
