Samsung Galaxy Fit

samsung galaxy s10 full review

The Samsung Galaxy S10 sits right in the middle of the top-of-the-chain Samsung Galaxy S10+ and the more affordable Samsung Galaxy S10e. The device gets a triple camera setup at the back just like its bigger brother, but the front only sees a single under-display camera, unlike the dual front camera setup found on the S10+.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

samsung galaxy s10e full review

Truth be told, the Galaxy S10e is the most disappointing of the lot. There is no problem with the device as such, but when compared with its other siblings, it just falls short and does not impress as much. There are a rather standard dual rear camera setup and a single front camera. There is no under-display fingerprint scanner too. The Galaxy S10e relies on a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which is embedded inside the power button.

The price the device is being offered at does not help the case either.

Samsung Galaxy S10+

samsung galaxy s10+ full review

This is where things start getting really interesting. Samsung has left no stone unturned to make the Galaxy S10+ the best Android smartphone in the market as of date.

We get a triple camera setup at the back and a dual front camera setup which makes 5 cameras in total. To top the benchmarks, we get a whopping 12GB of RAM and the internal storage goes all the way up to 1TB.

What else could one ask for in a flagship smartphone?

Samsung Galaxy Fold

samsung galaxy fold full review

It’s surprising to witness an event wherein the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup wasn’t the star. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is finally a reality and is going to be sold to the general public starting from March 2019. The ultra-expensive price tag of around $1900 is definitely going to make a lot of potential buyers sad, but this is the price for innovation. Hopefully, we will get more affordable devices like the Galaxy Fold in the near future.

Samsung has introduced a new feature dubbed App Continuity which lets you open the bigger display and continue on with the work you were doing on the smaller display when folded providing for a seamless experience. To make multitasking even better, you can open up to 3 apps at the same time (much like in the typical Apple iPads).

Xiaomi Black Shark 3 will not take too long to be launched, patents leaked

Published

on

xiaomi black shark 3 live shots

Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Black Shark 2 gaming smartphones a little while ago and it is surprising to see that the company is already in works to launch its successor, the Xiaomi Black Shark 3.

If the report from Letsgodigital has to be believed, the company has already filed the patent for the same.

After the Black Shark Helo, which was launched in October last year, this is already the third gaming smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. It looks like it won’t be the last model in the series either because Xiaomi has recently patented a series of new gaming models.

The design patent was applied for by Xiaomi in December 2018 at the Global Design Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and was published on 19 March 2019. No fewer than 48 sketches have been added.

A design patent is always very brief in terms of information, it is about the design that is recorded. It is therefore remarkable that Xaomi has stated in the description: ‘the name of this design product: mobile phone (Sky)’. It is possible that the name Sky refers here to the model name of the mobile gaming device. Finally, the name Black Shark Sky is very much in line with Black Shark Helo.

In total, the patent shows eight different models. We follow them one by one. The first model is a kind of combination of the models that have already been introduced. The front is reminiscent of the original Black Shark, this device was equipped with a physical home button. On the back, however, we see a double camera that is positioned vertically apart, similar to the Black Shark 2.

Xiaomi has patented another variant of this model, which has an extra camera at the rear. Based on the size of the lens, this could be a ToF camera, meant for 3D photography and AR applications, such as AR gaming. A ToF 3D camera seems to be becoming increasingly popular. Last year the Oppo RX17 Pro was introduced with a ToF camera. The Honor View 20 and the LG G8 ThinQ, introduced earlier this year, also have a ToF 3D camera.

Next, we see two models with a small notch. It is again the back that differs from each other. One model shows a dual camera, the other variant shows a triple camera. Xiaomi also had two phone designs recorded with a wide notch, in which the receiver is placed in addition to the selfie camera. Finally, we see two models that are very similar to the recently launched Black Shark 2. A variant with two and three cameras is also patented for this model.

As of now, this is all we know about the device.
