We’ve seen lots of Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ leaks since the past few months (here’s the previous one). A leak with images of the smartphones from every angle was out recently, and it doesn’t disappoint. Now we’ve got a new leaked Samsung Galaxy S9+ banner.
As we can see, the banner features the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with a 18:9 display. ‘128G’ has been written on the bottom of the phone, so we can expect a 128GB variant for the smartphone. Unfortunately, the leak doesn’t show us the rear side of the device. However, we can see that the banner shows off some kind of Chinese festival.
Furthermore, the Samsung S9 has a single camera on the rear while the S9+ has a dual camera setup on the back. Going on to the software side, the phones will have the Experience 9 UI. Samsung had released the beta recently, and we noticed a lot of improvements and tweaks. You can read about it here.
Samsung has also added the capability of hybrid face detection for the SoC, which might be a response for Apple’s FaceID. The company had filed a patent for a feature named as ‘Intelligent Scan‘. The patent speaks of combining iris sensor and front camera data to create a security system similar to FaceID. Moreover, some hidden code had been discovered in the new Experience 9 UI made for Intelligent Scan. Combine all this information, and we can be sure that Samsung will bring something very similar to Face detection by Apple to these smartphones.
Samsung will launch their latest flagships at MWC 2018. The event is scheduled on February 25, held at Barcelona. The company has said that the new phones will ‘reimagine and redefine’ the Camera. However, we do not know further details.
Samsung Galaxy S9 Expected Specifications
- 5.8 inch Quad HD+ display
- Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810
- 4/6GB RAM
- 64/128/512GB internal storage
- Super speed Dual Pixel 12MP OIS f1.5/f2.5
Mi 8 Leaked in Hands on video, reveals transparent back!
The Xiaomi‘s Mi 8 Anniversary flagship is again on the news which is rumoured to be unveiled at Xiaomi Annual Product Event in Shenzhen, speculations pointing to a May 31 date. The company yesterday confirmed the existence of the smartphone by releasing a teaser. This time a hands-on-video of the upcoming flagship has surfaced online revealing key details about its design aspects.
Take a look at the video:
From the video, the smartphone seems to feature a transparent glass back panel and it looks stunning. The Snapdragon chipset with Qualcomm’s logo can be easily seen while the company’s logo is engraved on the lower half of the glass panel. The front panel also matches with the notched leaked front panel couple of weeks earlier. The presence of notch and looking at the thickness, the hope of 3D face scanning technology is still alive. The dual cameras are stacked in a vertical position on the top left corner with a LED Flash.
Other features includes a 6.01 inch OLED display, Snapdragon 845 chipset, Under display fingerprint sensor, AI powered cameras with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) and a 4,000 mAh battery. Previously a leaked image revealed it will be available in four configurations: 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 8GB RAM+128GB ROM, 8GB RAM +256GB ROM and 8GB RAM + 512GB ROM which will be priced at 3599 Yuan (Rs 38,500 approx), 4099 Yuan (Rs 43,500 approx), 4499 Yuan (Rs 48,000 approx) and 4899 Yuan (Rs 52,000 approx) respectively.
Xiaomi’s Upcoming Flagship Mi 8 Pricing & Variants Leaked(Again)!
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is alleged to host a launch event for launching its latest iteration in the Mi series by the end of this month. It has also been in the air that the company has decided to skip the Mi 7 and go straight ahead to the Mi 8 to match the numbers with its anniversary.
According to the leaks surfaced on Weibo, there might be two variants for the Mi 8. The rumors suggest that the Mi 8 is likely to be released with the under-display fingerprint scanner technology. The screen is expected to be a huge 6.01-inch display. There might also be no delays in the unlocking mechanism, unlike the current smartphones which have incorporated the feature. The device is also expected to feature the 3D facial scanning as seen on the Apple iPhone X.
The device was spotted on a hands-on video a few ago and it looks like it will be faster than the current phones in unlocking. In terms of specifications, it is expected to feature the bleeding-edge hardware available in the market like the Snapdragon 845, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and AI camera with 2x optical zoom support. The video showed the device to be running on MIUI 9, which is more likely to be based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
As mentioned earlier, the Mi 8 is expected to come with two variants – one with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, the other one with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. They are expected to be priced at 2,799 Yuan (~$439) & 3,199 Yuan (~$502) respectively. In the leaked image, the space for the device is blurred out. This makes us doubt the credibility of the image and hints that the image might be actually made-up.
Another report has been surfacing online claiming to be the pricing of the upcoming device but a Xiaomi executive has confirmed that the image is not genuine.
