Published

on

LG is reportedly working on launching a new smartphone with a roll-up display. The company has already filed the patents for the same.

The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

On December 20, 2018, WIPO published a patent from LG Electronics for a ‘rollable mobile terminal’. The smartphone is equipped with a flexible touchscreen that can roll in and roll out. The rollable smartphone also features a second screen, a stylus pen, and multiple cameras. It’s a very multi-functional device.

The LG rollable smartphone has housing on both sides of the flexible display. The display can be opened to leftward or rightward. The interface will be adjusted accordingly, illustrated by the accompanying images. When the user makes use of the full display three pages/apps can be run simultaneously.

The smaller touch screen is located in the left housing. This housing also contains a stylus pen, which can be pulled out by pressing on the bottom. The right housing is provided with a mechanical control element, this can also be used as a jog wheel. The left housing will also contain a button on the rear, which functions as an on / off button and as a fingerprint scanner. Directly below, a volume button is placed.

The rollable smartphone from LG contains multiple cameras that can be placed in a matrix configuration (camera array) or stereoscopically, enabling the user to take 3D photos. Earlier this month the Korean manufacturer was also granted a patent for a  3D smartphone camera. In case LG chooses this camera-type, a camera will be placed on the front and back of the device. Also, a laser sensor will be integrated. As the placement of the cameras is not final yet, they are not shown in the illustrations.

In addition, the rollable device offers support for two user accounts. The users can be assigned different rights. In addition, it is also possible that the user can only use the right part.

Finally, the patent description states that a protection cover or similar accessory will also be supplied. In addition to smartphones, patented technology is also applicable to laptops, tablets, and smartwatches.

Here you can find the rollable smartphone patent from LG Electronics.

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.
