Chinese smartphone maker Vivo which caught the attraction of the tech industry worldwide at the MWC 2018 with its Vivo Apex Phone (which was launched officially earlier this day) has now decided to go with the trend by the top-notch display. We had seen another device last month from the brand – the X30 showcasing the notch at the top.
Last week, we had spotted the V9 smartphone on a billboard ad in Indonesia. According to this ad, we can clearly notice that after the launch of the Vivo V7, the company has skipped the launch of V8 and now is directly launching the V9. It is evident that the Vivo V9 is offering a nearly bezel-less display and also it comes with a top notch. The official billboard suggests that the brand has plans to launch the device soon in the market.
The device seems to be heavily inspired by the looks of Huawei P20. More and more companies are adapting to the notch design because Android P ecosystem natively supports the notch. The date on the leaked image shows August 25th which hints that the device might be an early prototype or a pre-production model.
There is also a video of the Vivo V9 back panel in production assembly line, take a look:
The device sports a dual camera on the rear side and the front camera is equipped with a 24MP sensor. This has been confirmed via an official teaser. A fingerprint sensor is mounted on the back side. We’ll get to know the key specifications soon hopefully as leaks happen more frequently for devices these days. The predecessor Vivo V7 had a Snapdragon 450 chip which is an entry-level processor but this one sports a Snapdragon 660 which is a decent upgrade to the overall performance and fluidity.
Vivo V9 Expected Specifications
- Bezel-less display
- iPhone X style notch
- Snapdragon 660
- Dual rear camera
- 24 MP front camera
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Renders & Hands On Leaked, Shows Off it’s Triple Cameras!
Samsung recently announced they will be focusing on bringing new technology and innovation to its mid-range devices before its flagships. A new report hints that Samsung will keep true to its word.
A new hands-on image and a press renders of the Galaxy A7 (2018) surfaced online showing it will sport a triple camera setup in the rear, the first time ever for a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. It not only raises the bar of mid-range smartphones but giving a positive nod to the upcoming S10 series next year.
Take a look at the renders:
Here’s the hands on image that was re[prted:
The triple camera like the one seen on Huawei P20 Pro suggests that it will feature up to 3X optical zoom. But since it is a mid-range device, the company may opt for a 2X lossless zoom instead of a 3X one. A wide-angle lens similar to the LG flagships is also expected. It will likely come with OIS, EIS and support for 4K video recording at 30fps.
This is not the first time the vertical three lens camera has been leaked. It was rumoured far back as July and is speculated to have similar specs to last year’s Galaxy A8 Plus that was powered by an Exynos 7885 SoC coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
There is also a rumour that the handset will come with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Samsung new liking for the side mounted fingerprint sensor is not limited to this device, it can be seen in the Galaxy S10 (base variant) as well as the Galaxy J6 Plus and the Galaxy J4 Plus. The renders show a slight indent when looked closely confirming the speculations.
Samsung has been teasing the smartphone with taglines related to cameras like “Capture the fun with Samsung” and “4X fun” hinting the four cameras. The Galaxy A7 (2018) will be unveiled at an event on October 11.
Is this Redmi Note 6 Pro? Hands On Leaked!
Redmi Note series always have been the best sellers for Xiaomi. And this year’s Redmi Note 5 Pro wasn’t different. And we’ve been hearing about the news that Xiaomi is preparing to launch the next phone in their Note series early. We’ve even saw some reports about details of the phone. But this might just be the first ever hands on photo of the device. Take a look:
You can clearly see the basic specifications of the device from the screen protector. Which shows off:
- 20+2MP Dual Selfie camera
That’s a first for a Redmi device and the 2MP depth sensor really sounds like something coming from Honor devices.
- 12+5MP Dual camera
- Below that, we can see the description of 1.4um large pixels with Dual Pixel autofocus. That really sounds like the camera setup from Redmi Note 5 AI Dual Camera (global variant of Redmi Note 5 Pro).
- 6.26 inch Full Screen display
That’s an upgrade from 5.99 inch display of Note 5 Pro, that dimensions also mean there’s the presence of notch as we saw from the earlier reports. Although we can’t really confirm if the notch is a water drop notch that we saw in Oppo F9 Pro, Vivo V11 Pro & Honor 8x series recently.
- 4000mAh battery
Staple of Redmi Note series, battery capacity remains unchanged.
This leak doesn’t reveal much about the device other than these. But earlier reports have revealed that the phone could be coming with a Snapdragon 660 SoC, but it could very well be Snapdragon 636 from Note 5 Pro itself. Anyways, let’s just wait for more leaks and reports now.
Nokia 9 & Nokia X7 Front Glass Panels Leaked
Recent reports have indicated that the next smartphone from HMD Global will be the much awaited Nokia 9 which is equipped with a penta-lens camera setup. The previous reports have shown only the rear design but a new leaked photo of display panel has revealed the front side of the device. Also similar photos of the Nokia X7 have surfaced online.
The leaked image reveals that the Nokia 9 will not feature a notch and has thin bezels. The top bezel holds the earpiece and the front cameras. There is a small chin which will give the smartphone a high screen-to-body ratio.
As for the Nokia X7, the new photo showing the front side reveals that it will also not follow the notch trend. Though the previous X series smartphones like the Nokia X6 and the X5 featured a top notch, the Nokia X7 goes with the traditional top and bottom bezel.
Previous reports have suggested that the Nokia 9 will come with best in class hardware like in-screen fingerprint sensor, curved display and the already confirmed Penta Lens setup. It will be likely powered by Snapdragon 845 coupled with 6GB/8GB RAM. The display is speculated to be a 5.99 inch OLED screen.
While there isn’t much information about the Nokia X7, it was reported earlier that a Nokia smartphone codenamed Pheonix powered by a Snapdragon 710 is in the works, It is widely believed to be the Nokia X7 which will be named Nokia 7.1 Globally. Both the smartphones are expected to be launched this year.
