Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to Be Launched Earlier, S9 & S9+ to Blame?

Published

on

Don’t you think that this is something very unusual that the Galaxy Note 9 has been spotted over GeekBench so early? Yes, the Note 9 has been spotted a lot earlier on the GeeBench website and this time it is the fault of Samsung Galaxy S9. So the launch of the second flagship of 2018 may be arriving as early as July or August.

The reason being the Note 9 arriving so soon is because of the obvious reasons that the Galaxy S9 is not making enough of sales. So today over GeekBench we the Galaxy Note 9 has been spotted with the model number SM-N960U and is powered by a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and is coupled with 6GB of RAM. There is the high number of chances that the Note 9 might hit the markets with the Exynos 9810.

 

So according to all the latest reports (the one where it was spotted on Geekbench), the Galaxy Note 9 is currently running on the Android Oreo 8.1. Now talking about numbers, the multi-core benchmark has a score of 8806 and also a single-core score of 2190. Now, these numbers are not so impressive when compared to the performance which is currently offered by the Galaxy S9. But then again, once we get the hands-on experience of the device, only then we can get a complete overview of the performance of the device.

Now the latest rumors suggest that this device sports a 6.3 inch Super AMOLED display which comes with a resolution of 1080*2048 pixels. Following the current trend, this device does come with a dual rear camera setup and we are expecting a 12MP+12MP sensor towards the rear and an 8MP front camera. Chances are more that we can see this device as early has June this year, thanks to the lower performance of Galaxy S9 in terms of the sales.

Looking at the incoming reports, it seems that OPPO is focussing a lot on budget smartphones to stay in the competition. Two new Selfie-centric OPPO F9 and F9 Pro smartphones have recently passed through Bluetooth Certification. Now, three new devices from OPPO are reported to receive their Bluetooth certification as of July 19 and are alleged to be called as OPPO A2 Pro, OPPO AX5 and the OPPO R15 Neo.

The listing on Bluetooth’s official site reveals the model numbers to be “CPH 1829” and “CPH 1851”. Both the devices are yet to be released and sport the same Bluetooth version 4.2 as seen on the recently passed OPPO F9/F9 Pro and other OPPO devices like the OPPO F7, A5, A3s and the Realme 1.

The OPPO AX5 and R15 Neo appear to be the same phones, with different names for different regions, similar to what we saw with the A5 and A3s. The OPPO A3S launched in India was the same OPPO A5 that was unveiled earlier this month in China.

As far as the listing is concerned, the Oppo A2 Pro holds the model number CPH1829, whereas the Oppo AX5 or Oppo R15 Neo have the model number as CPH1851. The A2 Pro comes with three WCDMA bands and seven LTE bands while the R15 Neo aka AX5 comes with seven WCDMA bands and twelve LTE bands, indicating that either they have either different chipsets or else are prioritised to be sold in different regions.

The OPPO R15 Neo will succeed the previously launched R15 that came with Mediatek Helio P60 SoC. However, it is hard to comment anything about the specifications yet, as the Bluetooth listing revealed only limited things. These smartphones are expected to be launched starting from August 2018. The OPPO F9 and F9 Pro are reported to launch at the same time. Let’s wait for further leaks and reports. Till then, stay tuned.

Published

on

During the launch of the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 back in April, Asus announced that the 6GB version will be available a few weeks after the initial sales of the base variants. Now, the company has officially confirmed that the 6GB variant will be available for purchase exclusively on Flipkart, starting from July 26th.

Here’s the official announcement from Asus India on Facebook:

The 6GB variant of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is not just an upgrade in terms of RAM, but also brings few improvements over the existing 3/32GB and 4/64GB variants.

In addition to the extra 2GB of RAM, the dual camera setup on this variant features a 16MP primary sensor along with a 5MP secondary sensor compared to the 13+5MP setup on the other two. Also, it has a 16MP sensor at the front too, aided by a front flash, which is definitely a major upgrade over the 8MP shooter found on the base variants.

Rest of the specifications remain the same. The device sports a 5.99-inch (2160×1080 pixels) Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, maintaining a 15000:1 contrast ratio and 85 per cent NTSC colour gamut coverage. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC coupled with Adreno 509 GPU.
