Sony recently ditched its boxy 16:9 design and switched to the 18:9 trend on its latest devices. It appears to take a leap in the design aspects as the patent filed by the brand hints at the change in design plans on its upcoming devices.

The patent reveals that Sony is working on achieving transparent display on its devices. The initial patent was filed with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) under ‘Display device and electronic apparatus’ in May 2018. According to the patent, there will be two displays on the device. The key attraction of these displays is the ability to be set as transparent. This might sound impossible for now, but as the tech industry is growing at a swift pace, we might be seeing devices with transparent displays by the end of 2019.

The patent describes a smartphone with two displays, one at the front and one at the rear. The first display includes a plurality of light emitting elements. The second display includes a plurality of light control elements, each performing light control for control of transmission or reflection of incident light. As a result, the patented Sony smartphone features a dual-sided transparent display.

said LetsGoDigital, who first spotted the patent. There will be three modes for the device namely Non-Emission State, Emission State, and Transparent State. There is yet another patent for two devices which are foldable, coupled with this bleeding-edge transparent display technology.Sonys-foldable-display

There are no actual working prototypes made public so far by the brand. In addition to this, in the current scenario, Sony is struggling in the smartphone industry and if this turns out to be a very practical one, it would be the comeback of the good old Sony and its legacy of devices. Stay tuned for further details which might get leaked or teased in the upcoming days.

Google Pixel 3 Lite & Pixel 3 Lite XL CAD Renders Revealed!

Published

on

While the Google Pixel handsets have been hailed as best camera phones one can buy, the tech Giant has taken the feedback seriously as it plans to offer its best camera at Nexus-level pricing. The Pixel 3 Lite is said to be an affordable variant of the Pixel 3 and has been subjected to a couple of leaks before.

However, another tipster Onleaks claimed that there will be another larger model to be called as Pixel 3 Lite XL. Today, with collaboration with 91mobiles, he released first 5K renders and a 360-video of the smartphones confirming previous renders.

The Pixel 3 Lite and the Pixel 3 Lite XL seems to have a similar design as its parent Pixel 3 duo but have their differences as well. There is no notched display on either of them and it seems they have slight bezels on the side and top along with a chin at the bottom. Unlike the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, there will be only one speaker which will double up as an earpiece. Ditching the dual selfie camera design, the Pixel 3 Lite and its brother will get a single selfie snapper. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack on both the smartphones which aren’t available on the Pixel 3 duo.

Both the Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL carry the volume rocker and the power button on the right side and an ejectable SIM on the left side. The lower side houses a USB Type-C port paired with speaker grills. On the rear, they both sport a single camera with a camera bump coupled with dual tone LED flash, a circular fingerprint sensor and a Google logo below. Like their flagship siblings, the upcoming smartphones will be available in black and white hues with a green neon power button on the white color option. The Pixel 3 Lite XL also seems to sport a polycarbonate construction instead of a glass one.

As for its specs, the Pixel 3 Lite will come with a 5.5 inch 18:5:9 display while the Pixel 3 Lite XL will feature a 6 inch 18:5:9 display . Both the devices measure 8.2 mm in thickness which increases to 9 mm when the rear camera bump is included. The Pixel 3 Lite measures 151.3 x 70.1 mm while the XL measures 160 x 76.1mm.

The earlier codenamed Sargo is rumored to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 with 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage while offering a 12MP rear and 8MP front camera. It will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and will be backed by a 2,915 mAh battery. The elder sibling is expected to carry similar specs though it is rumored to house a Snapdragon 710 under the hood. As for now, Google is yet to give an official word on the price or the launch date of the smartphones.

A few days ago, we witnessed the Sony Xperia XZ4‘s CAD render leaks which revealed the presence of the triple camera setup on the device. Now we have got some information regarding the Compact version of the XZ4 lineup, the Sony Xperia XZ4 Compact.

The major visual difference you will notice immediately is the difference in the screen size and the bezels. The Sony Xperia XZ4 features a modern design with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 6-inch display, while the brand has equipped the Sony Xperia Z4 Compact with a 5-inch screen and noticeable bezels. The device measures 139.9 x 66.5 x 9.3 mm according to the renders.Sony-Xperia-XZ4-Compact-3

The bottom bezel holds the Sony logo. The side bezels are very much noticeable, unlike the regular variant. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side of the device as usual. There is a single rear camera on the device while the regular Sony Xperia XZ4 features triple cameras.  An LED flash is mounted to the right of the rear camera.

There is a single front-facing camera on the device. The Xperia XZ4 Compact will retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack which was absent on the Xperia XZ4 renders. This is a welcome move as the number of people depending on wired audio devices is still more and having a headphone jack on the device is a positive gesture considering the compact nature of the device.

The leaked CAD renders have also been made into a 3D render based on the dimensions. Check out the 3D render video below.

OnePlus is geared up for the launch of the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition Speed Orange next week. The Chinese company didn’t reveal much except for its collaboration with the British car brand McLaren. Today a Twitter User @IshanAgarwal24 has revealed both the design aspect as well as the specs of the upcoming smartphone.

From the leaked images, the McLaren Edition doesn’t look much different from the regular variant at the front with its waterdrop notch and large display. However, the rear gets a real upgrade with a new glass design with carbon-fibre pattern underneath instead of its single color design. There is an orange hue added to the bottom edge and extend to the sides with a McLaren logo at the back. The choice of the color is understandable since McLaren’s signature color is orange.
