Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi is planning for some experiments in the design aspect. In terms of design, we have seen the brand do wonders in the past with their Mi Mix series.

If you remember this earlier report, you’d be aware that Xiaomi might be working on a dual foldable display phone. Well, now we have a confirmation that they’re indeed working on a dual display smartphone.

The co-founder of Xiaomi Lin Bin has posted a teaser video on Weibo, a Chinese smartphone maker. Take a look at the video below.

From the video, we can see him operating a device sized like a tablet and seamlessly folding the sides of it to a normal phablet structure. The interesting part is that the UI dynamically adjusts itself to the change and places the content on the screen accordingly.

This is not the first time we are seeing a foldable smartphone but seeing this from Xiaomi is indeed exciting. The brand has placed a power button on the top of the device for unlocking the handset in both the modes.  Lin Bin has quoted that the form factor of this upcoming smartphone’s form factor “perfectly merges the experience” of a phone and a tablet. Below is the translation of the post made by Lin Bin on Weibo

Xiaomi’s dual-folding phone is coming! After tackling flexible folding display, four-way folding hinge, flexible cover tech, MIUI adaptation and other technical challenges, we have made the first foldable phone, and should also be the world’s first dual-folding phone. This symmetrically dual-outer-folding form factor perfectly merges the experience of a tablet and a phone, it’s both practical and beautiful. Even though it’s still a prototype, we’re showing it to you all. Feel free to share, comment and like. If you all like it, we will consider mass producing it. Also, we would like to give this prototype a name. What do you think?I have two: Mi Dual Flex, Mi MIX Flex. Suggestions are welcome!

The device is still in prototype stage at this timeframe but he has revealed that Xiaomi has plans to consider the foldable smartphone concept for mass production. The expected names for the foldable smartphone are either Mi Dual Flex or Mi MIX Flex. We’ll have to wait for the brand to actually unveil the product to know the specifications opted for this experimental device. Till then, stay tuned for updates.

LG W10 Live Images Leaked. Triple Cameras & Waterdrop Notch!

Published

Recently LG has announced their upcoming smartphone series, named as the W series. However, LG didn’t say how many smartphones it will launch under this series. At present, it is speculated that there are at least two phones being prepared, and the live video of one among it, the LG W10 has been leaked online.

According to reports, the W10 is the base model of the W series. The leaked image reveals that the W10 will be having a curvy design, unlike the flat design as claimed by an earlier rumor. The fit and finish of the back panel suggest that the back panel might be made of metal, instead of glass. In the image, we can see that the back panel has a glossy finish.

The rear camera setup is mounted vertically, and we can only see the flash which is placed at the bottom, in the leaked image. However, the height of the camera mounting suggests that it will be spotting a dual camera setup. As we can see in the image, the LG W10 also has a fingerprint sensor which is mounted in the rear, at the traditional position.

The model in the leaked image is shown sporting a purple color which is rare for LG smartphones, and also doesn’t have a gradient color finish. Apart from that, there is a 3.4mm audio jack at one side of the USB port, and on the other side, we have the speaker.

It is reported that the LG W10 will be priced at around $214 (RS.15,000). The other smartphones on the W series might be named as W20 and W30, according to some reports. As of now, LG has released no official statement about neither the leaked images nor the launch date and specifications of the W10.

A Radically Different Set of Pixel 4 Renders Shows very iPhone-esque Design!

Published

on

By

A month ago Google launched the budget-friendly offering of their flagship pixel series, the Pixel 3a &3a XL in Google I/O 2019 held at California. Apparently, now all eyes are on their upcoming flagship, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. According to the latest reports, the schematics of these upcoming Pixel smartphones have been leaked online. However, since the renders are based on prototypes, there might be changes in the original product.

Looking at the leaked renders, the first thing that will come to our mind is the unusually large square camera bump similar to that on the leaked renders of Apple iPhone XI, and the absence of a physical fingerprint sensor. The large size of the camera bump indicates that there will be multiple cameras in the rear. Guessing from the size of the square, we are expecting a triple camera setup in the rear, for the least. The Pixel smartphones are known for their camera performance, and looking at the render it seems Google will be stepping up its game in the camera segment.

The missing fingerprint sensors in the leaked render indicates that Google might skip the physical sensor for either an in-display fingerprint sensor or 3D face-unlock. There are also chances that the new Pixel devices will be coming with both the before mentioned unlocking features.

In the render, the earpiece is placed on top of the screen, which indicates that Google might retain the notch. Coming to other details, there are two speaker grills on both sides of the USB Type-C port, which means that the upcoming Pixel 4 smartphones will be ditching the front facing speaker design. The volume and power button is placed at the right edge while the left edge is bare. Also, there is no 3.4mm audio jack according to the render.

While there isn’t much information available about the specs of the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, some reports suggest that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Google usually launches their flagships in October and it is expected that they will be doing the same with the Pixel 4 too.
