[Exclusive]: Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone design variants revealed

Published

on

Last week, we got to see the first-ever 3D renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone and no matter how difficult or impractical the design language of the device appears to be, Samsung is apparently keen to make foldable smartphones a regular edition in their flagship lineup of smartphones.

DJ Koh, president of Samsung Mobile, has announced last week that the company wants to introduce new foldable models every year.

As per the reports, Samsung has filed a patent for a bunch of upcoming foldable smartphones with different designs.

The patent describes a foldable smartphone with a display on the front, and a larger tablet size display on the inside. Various options are discussed for the display at the front.

With the first smartphone model, we see narrow screen edges, with the speaker and sensors incorporated in the bezel. Presumably, we also see that with the Samsung Galaxy F, although that device will actually look a bit narrower than the patent sketches do.

In another, more advanced model, the main display runs through the side of the device all the way to the front. Here too we see a bezel on the top and bottom. Then Samsung has patented an even more advanced design, in which the speaker, sensors and a home button are incorporated in the display.

Two other foldable Samsung smartphones show a front display that covers only half of the front. Then the upper or the lower part. The latest variation shows two narrow front displays. For example, a keyboard can be shown on the lower display, while the upper part shows the input. Instead of two narrow screens, one can also opt for one narrow screen.

The flexible display is touch sensitive and can also be operated with a stylus pen. The display at the front is connected to the main display. If one of the two screens is not in use, it can be switched off automatically.

The patent also provides new insights regarding the hinge. A rotatable hinge has been used, which is very slim. The patent description also talks about the presence of a digital camera, although it is not clear where the camera is placed.

Huawei accidentally treats us with the official P30 lineup leaks

The Huawei Netherlands official website recently uploaded the live shots of the P30 lineup. The page was removed shortly after, but the world of leakers was quicker…

We are going to witness the official launch of the Huawei P30 lineup of smartphones come March 26. Right ahead of the launch, Huawei has (accidentally) leaked the live shots of the Huawei P30 and the Huawei P30 Pro. This might very well be planned, but we cannot say anything for sure.

Huawei’s Netherlands website recently uploaded a new page which contained all the details of the upcoming devices. The page was removed pretty quickly, but the world of Android leaks, once again, came out quicker.

Though the images don’t tell us anything we already do not know of, they reassure us about the previous rumors and leaks surrounding the lineup.

Furthermore, we have finally got an idea as to what all we would get if we would pre-order the devices. If you pre-order the P30, you will get a Sonos One speaker, and if you pre-order the Pro variant, you will get the speaker and a wireless charger.

Huawei P30 Pro: Geekbench scores

  • Single-core score: 3289
  • Multi-core score: 9817
  • Kirin 980 chipset
  • 8GB RAM
  • Android 9 Pie

A couple of days ago, MobielKopen discovered a Geekbench benchmark for the Huawei P30 Pro. As presumed, the phone will be driven by a 1.8Ghz octa-core Kirin 980 processor with 8GB of RAM memory and runs on Android 9 Pie. The same hardware can be found in Huawei’s current flagship model, the Mate 20 Pro.

We already know that the Huawei P30 (and the P30 Pro) will feature a periscope camera on the back and a triple camera setup will make its way to the device.

Published

A couple of days ago, the upcoming Meizu 16s received the 3C certification which hinted at a nearby launch (expected to be launched in the month of May).

The device has now once again popped up on the internet courtesy of a leaked hands-on image.

The newly leaked image sort of confirms the previously leaked ones as this one also features an almost bezel-less screen with no notch. The picture appears to be taken at some sort of a smartphones repair shop by the looks of the background.

We can see the front camera at the top right side of the forehead of the Meizu 16s (alleged). Why the other companies cannot try to have the front camera embedded somewhere here is a mystery.

As far as the specifications are concerned, under the hood, the devices (the Meizu 16 lineup) will be powered with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with a scope of further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

A 3,600mAh battery will fuel the device, but we won’t get any fast charging coming up with the device.

The price will be somewhere around $490. As of now, this is all we know about the devices, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.

meizu 16s full specifications

The upcoming Meizu 16s has recently received the 3C certification which hints at a nearby launch. meizu 16s 3c certification

The device which has received the certification has the model number M971Q and though there is not much intel on the specifications mentioned in the listing, we now know that the Meizu 16s will come with a UP0830S charger which happens to be the company’s native charger with mCharge capabilities.

Lets’ have a look at some of the leaked specifications of both the Meizu 16s and the Meizu 16s Plus.

Starting things off with the displays of both the devices, the Meizu 16s has a 6.2-inch FHD+ AMOLED display while the one found on the Meizu 16s Plus has a bigger 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. The chin found on the smaller variant is considerably thinner when compared with the Plus variant. There is no notch at the top of the display and it is commendable to see Meizu sticking to its very basics. The forehead is pretty thin and looks absolutely amazing. Other companies should definitely be learning from this.

Both the screens are going to be protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.

Under the hood, the devices will be powered with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage with a scope of further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

A 3,600mAh battery will fuel the device, but we won’t get any fast charging coming up with the device.

Coming to the price and the release date of the device, the Meizu 16s lineup will be launched somewhere in the month of April or May.

The price will be somewhere around $490. As of now, this is all we know about the devices, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.
