Mi Mix 3

For the current mobile industry, 5G is going to be the next big thing in coming months and manufacturers have already started preparing their upcoming devices for the same. We have already seen the 5G Moto mod used by Motorola to bring 5G support to their recently launched Moto Z3, also, the Chinese giant Huawei has already introduced the worlds first 5G-ready Chipset i.e. the Kirin 980. Now, a new report hints that Xiaomi too is testing the 5G connectivity with its upcoming flagship- Mi MIX 3.

Mr Donovan Sung- the global spokesperson of Xiaomi has now posted a new image on Weibo which showcases the upcoming Mi MIX 3 running on Chinese version of MIUI. On observing carefully, one can spot the 5G indication shown in the notification bar meaning that the device was connected to a 5G network while the image was shot.

Confirming the same, Donovan mentions in his latest tweet that they have already tested 5G data connections on Xiaomi phones and are waiting for the official roll-out of 5G next year.

As of now, the Mi MIX 3 is confirmed by the company to launch in late October. If they manage to land it before the Huawei Mate 20 launch scheduled on October 16, then the MIX 3 could be the first smartphone to come with native 5G support (Moto Z3 requires a mod for the same), or else, the crown will be taken by the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 & Mate 20 Pro.

Coming to the device itself, the Mi MIX 3 is reported to come with an edge to edge bezel-less display and a motorized camera module, just like the Oppo Find X. The main competitor of this phone will be the Honor Magic 2 which was recently teased by Honor to have a manual slider for the camera module. It seems like Mi Mix 3 was the “competitor” device that Mr George Zhao, President of Honor was talking about during the event.

Moreover, given that Qualcomm will be releasing its next Snapdragon 855 chipset in December as part of its annual Tech Summit, the Mi MIX 3 is more likely to come with the existing Snapdragon 845 SoC. To achieve the 5G capabilities, Xiaomi should technically use the Snapdragon X50 5G modem similar to the Moto 5G mod.

Although the devices for 5G consumption are already being prepared, the 5G networks are far from rolling out as of now. 5G will be laid initially in certain regions including China, starting from 2019, followed by India which should be 5G-ready most probably by 2020. Anyways, let’s see which manufacturer actually takes the crown of unveiling the first smartphone with native 5G support.

Is Nokia is working on a Gaming Phone?

Published

Gaming smartphones are the becoming more popular with more and more manufacturers developing their own gaming smartphone. The latest company to join this list is HMD Global who is teasing a Nokia gaming smartphone for the first time.

Nokia Mobile India had tweeted out a video which seems to be teasing a gaming phone. But it was quickly deleted after sometime. You can see the teaser in the featured image.

The teaser comes in the form of a video which reads “Stay tuned for a phone you can #GameOn”. It was posted on the official Indian Twitter handle of the company hinting towards a Nokia branded gaming smartphone from the company.

Leaving aside the excitement, we will like to remind you that the company has a habit of over-hyping and over-exaggerating its routine mid-range smartphones.

The company advertised the Nokia 6.1 Plus smartphone as the “most awaited phone”. Moreover the tag #GameOn might be just to hype the regional launch of the Nokia 5.1 Plus and nothing to do with Nokia Gaming smartphone.

However if it is the case, the company is once again over-hyping since the smartphone comes with a 5.8 inch display and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC coupled with P60 chipset. Also it also possible that it is the alleged Nokia 8.1 Plus or Nokia 7.1 Plus which have been on the rumours lately.

However seeing the popularity of gaming smartphones, the company is likely developing a gaming smartphone on its own. Razer recently sent invites for the Razer 2 smartphone to be launched on October 10. Chinese manufacturer Huawei will also be releasing a gaming smartphone this year. The Nokia Gaming smartphone will be competing against the likes of Xiaomi Black Shark, ASUS ROG phone and Nubia Red Magic.

Samsung to merge Galaxy J series into A series, rebrand On series to M series

Samsung is reportedly planning to reorganise its entire line-up of entry level to upper mid-range line-up according to a new report. Previously we heard that the South Korean manufacturer will be merging the Galaxy S series and the Note series.

The new reports which come from industry sources claims that the lower midrange Galaxy J series will be discontinued and merged into the more premium Galaxy A series. This move of scrapping the Galaxy J series and moving into the Galaxy A series line-up can be cited to the heavy competition from the Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Honor, Vivo, OPPO, etc that dominates the entry level and mid-range segments.

Additionally, the company will be changing its online only Galaxy On brand to a new Galaxy M series. However it is expected as the Galaxy On smartphones are just rebranded Galaxy J devices. So it is still unknown what Samsung has to offer in its Galaxy M series.

This could also be possible that Samsung bring the entry level and lower-midrangers under the Galaxy M brand while the upper midrangers will be merged into the Galaxy A line-up. There will be less naming disparencies and hence less confusion. The company is also rumoured to be working on Galaxy J4 Prime and Galaxy J6 Prime which is now likely to be launched under a different brand.

Considering all above information as genuine, Samsung will left only with Galaxy S series, Galaxy A series and Galaxy M series which looks more systematic and organised.
