The history of Samsung Galaxy Note lineup depicted in an infographic

Published

on

Samsung is known for bringing about radical improvements and changes in the world of Android and the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup is the prime example of that. When the first-ever Galaxy Note was unveiled, it was way ahead of its time. Though styluses were not a new thing back then too, the original Note gave the stylus an altogether different meaning.

The company has recently released an infographic depicting the history and the evolution of the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup and it was only fitting that we gave the respect it deserves by mentioning it on our website.

The journey of the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup: #Noteworthy

It all started with the original Samsung Galaxy Note. The device featured a 5.3-inch WXGA Super AMOLED display giving out a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and an amazing 285ppi pixel density. Back then, having a screen this big used to be a rare sight and it is commendable that Samsung could pull this one off. There was a substantial 2,500 mAh battery which was removable, a solid 8MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie snapper. We got a pressure sensitive S-Pen which brought about a new dimension in the world of Android.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 took things further with a slightly bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display and a larger 3,100 mAh battery. The most notable feature of them all was the support for air gestures with the S-Pen.

This time, we got a 5.7-inch FHD Super AMOLED display giving out a resolution of 1820×1080 pixels and a 388ppi pixel density. Once again, the company went way ahead of its time and the display which the Galaxy Note 3 sported could even compete with the displays of today’s smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 took things further in the battery department as it featured a big 3,330 mAh battery which was capable of fast charging. It was also the first device by the company to sport a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button, a trend a lot of the smartphones by the company still follow in 2018. The Note 4 also featured a heart-rate sensor. Back in those days, Samsung was infamous for its love for the plastic it used for all the devices. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 finally broke this trend and featured a solid metal chassis.

Talking about radical changes, Samsung then came up with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which happened to be the company’s first-ever smartphone with a curved display along the edges and, needless to say, the world of Android just went nuts. The device set the benchmark for all the curved screen smartphones and deserves a great share of respect.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 finally saw the company ditching the metal/faux leather rear which used to look cheap, at the most. The device featured an all-glass body wrapped around on a solid metal chassis. The company introduced a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display which can still be used as a benchmark for beautiful displays. The device also featured the always-on screen off memo which would enable you to scribble anything on the screen even when turned off.

Samsung decided to skip the number 6 with its Note lineup to make sure that it does not coincide with its S lineup for long. Sadly, the company saw its worst piece of luck after that as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was not a success by any means. If you are a fan of Android, you must already have known as to what happened with the Note 7 devices. If not, kindly search the internet. Whatever happened with the device was rather unfortunate, but we cannot take away the fact that the Galaxy Note 7 was the first device by Samsung to sport an Iris scanner.

And, then came the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which again changed everything. It was the first Note device to sport an Infinity display, a dual rear camera setup, and support for Samsung DeX. As a matter of fact, the current Note flagship, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 shares a lot of aesthetics and features with the Note 8.

And now, the Note train has finally arrived at the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 station. The Galaxy Note 9 is, hands down, the best Android smartphone launched in the year 2018 and has everything to be called a flagship. The Bluetooth-connected S Pen with a remote feature, a dual rear camera setup with variable aperture, a massive 4,000 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, up to 512GB of internal storage, and whatnot. The Note 9 has it all.

So, this is it. This is the evolution of the Samsung Galaxy Note lineup of smartphones. We hope that you liked the journey. If you did, do let us know in the comments section down below.

huawei enjoy 9e faux leather back variant

Yet another day, yet another budget smartphone from Huawei gets leaked. This time, we have got the upcoming Huawei Enjoy 9e under the radar. Mysmartprice has recently leaked the specifications and a bunch of press renders of the device which showcases its design language in all its glory.

The render images suggest that the Huawei Enjoy 9e will feature a waterdrop notch at the top. The chin of the device will be fairly wide as we can clearly see the Huawei branding there. At the back, we see the regular game. The Huawei branding is on the bottom left portion of the back. A physical fingerprint scanner is nowhere to be seen. Furthermore, there is just a single rear camera.

In addition to the Black and the Blue color variants, we will get a Brown color variant which will boast of a faux leather back.

The website has also leaked some key specifications of the Huawei 9e. As per the report, the device will be powered with a Helio P35 chipset which will be coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with scope for further expansion (up to 512GB) with the help of an external SD card. A 3,020 mAh battery will fuel the device.

A 6.08-inch HD+ display with a waterdrop notch will sit at the front. The notch will accommodate the front camera of the device and given that the Huawei Enjoy 9e would not feature a fingerprint scanner, one would have to rely on the facial unlock mechanism to get the job done.

As far as the cameras of the device are concerned, the Huawei Enjoy 9e will feature a single 13MP (f/1.8) rear camera and an 8MP (f/2.0) front camera.

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we will keep you posted the moment we receive further intel on the same.

Oppo Reno lineup to have 5 devices – Pro, Plus, Zoom, Lite, and Youth

Published

oppo reno

We got to know about the upcoming Oppo sub-brand Reno a couple of weeks ago. The Reno lineup of smartphones will be focused on youth as it will pack in punchy and vibrant colors at the back.

Now, courtesy of Letsgodigital, we have got intel on the various models in the lineup. As per the report, the lineup will have five devices (initially) – Reno Pro, Reno Plus, Reno Zoom, Reno Lite, and Reno Youth.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On March 20, 2019, Guangdong Oppo Mobile Telecommunications submitted the trademark applications to the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) and to the IPO (Intellectual Property Office UK). The trademarks are classified as Class 9, which includes smartphones. The names are Reno Pro, Reno Plus, Reno Zoom, Reno Lite, and finally Reno Youth.

The trademark was applied for by Domingo Galletero Company, a law firm in Alicante. This company has often acted in the name of Oppo, as the Spanish company also applied for brand name protection at the beginning of this year for the name Oppo Limn.

Oppo Reno Pro

Based on the name you can assume that the Pro model will be a top model. It was previously known that the Reno will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor, or this will apply to all models is still unknown. But this powerful chipset will probably be used for the Oppo Reno Pro. It also seems obvious that this phone will offer 5G support.

Oppo Reno Plus

The name Reno Plus can have several meanings. This may involve an extra large screen, extra memory or an extra large battery. This last option certainly does not seem unlikely, it has already been announced that the Reno will be equipped with a 4,800 mAh battery. Oppo’s fast charging technology, called SuperVOOC Flash Charge, will certainly not be missing.

Oppo Reno Zoom

It is obvious that the name Reno Zoom refers to the zoom function of the camera. Earlier this year Oppo announced to have a smartphone with 10x optical zoom in development. This phone was already demonstrated at MWC 2019 last month. It is a triple camera with image stabilization. The triple camera consists of a 48-megapixel main camera, an ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8-megapixel zoom camera.

Oppo Reno Youth

The name Youth does not leave much to the imagination. Young consumers are an important target group for innovative Oppo. The Reno Youth seems to be meant for that. What this will mean for the functionality is still unknown, but this will probably be one of the cheaper models.

Oppo Reno Lite

The name Reno Lite also reminds me of a cheaper smartphone model. It is possible that this smartphone will be provided with less powerful hardware, in order to be able to offer an affordable device for every consumer.

The will run on the Android 9.0 operating system in combination with the recently introduced ColorOS 6 user interface from Oppo. Oppo’s own voice assistant, Breeno, will also be available.
