Published

on

Xiaomi has finally launched the second generation of the Black Shark gaming smartphones. The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is a substantial upgrade over the Xiaomi Black Shark.

Xiaomi Black Shark 2: What all is new?

For starters, we get the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with RAM up to 12GB. There is an under-display fingerprint scanner at the front of the device. While the rear looks almost the same, we get a bumped-up camera module.

The price of the device is kept at around $511 which is not too big of a jump when compared with the original Black Shark that cost around $577 for the top-of-the-line variant when it was launched.

Let’s have a look at the full specifications and features of the device.

Lenovo Z6 Pro to feature a quad rear camera with one 48MP shooter

Published

lenovo z6 pro camera features

The upcoming Lenovo Z6 Pro flagship will be launched on April 23. The pre-orders of the device have already begun. Today, the company has posted the official image of the rear of the device which depicts a quad rear camera arrangement.

One of the rear cameras will be a 48MP unit. This confuses everything as the earlier rumors suggested a 100MP camera coming up with the device. Nevertheless, we will get to know everything pretty soon as the launch date is not too far away.

Lenovo z6 pro launch date

We already know that the device is going to pack in a bunch of amazing features including a whopping 12GB of RAM and a 100MP (alleged) primary camera.

Adding on to that, the device will most certainly be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. This, however, is no more a rumor as the company has made it official via the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Qualcomm has already hinted that we would get 100MP cameras in smartphones somewhere this year, but we did not expect the news to come from Lenovo (watch out Samsung and Huawei).

Will the Lenovo Z6 Pro actually feature a 100MP camera?

To be honest, this news must be taken with due precaution as Cheng has had a reputation of exaggerating and overhyping (who can forget the Lenovo Z5 fiasco). There might be a possibility of an on-paper specs bump using software tweaks.

Nevertheless, having a 100MP camera (howsoever it turns out to be) is pretty impressive in itself.

The prime highlight of the device is going to be a HyperVision camera. Furthermore, the device will feature 5G, making it the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

While addressing the audience, a Lenovo representative gave us an idea of the upcoming plans of the company. As per the announcement, Lenovo is all geared up to launch the Lenovo Z6 Pro which will be the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

Not only that, but the device will also sport a new HyperVision camera which will be capable of recording Hyper Videos, a concept which is still not implemented practically in the world of Android smartphones.

Under the hood, the Lenovo Z6 Pro will be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage with scope for further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

As of now, little is known about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.

To know more about the device, you can head to our existing coverage of the same.

Check out the amazing (and exclusive) folding iPhone Z concept from Caviar

Published

on

caviar iPhone z foldable

Caviar has come up with an amazing looking concept of an iPhone which they call the iPhone Z. The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

Caviar doesn’t want to languish unaware until the autumn premiere of the new Apple product and offers the giants from Cupertino their own concept of the new iPhone to review.

Obviously, the time of great changes and serious updates has come – iPhone adepts are missing truly grandiose innovations and revolutionary ideas, this is why Caviar designers and engineers introduced an extraordinary concept that will exceed the expectations of the audience.

iPhone z foldable

The concept from Caviar is called iPhone Z, this is the sign of the new, young generation and the image of the silhouette that is “drawn” by the facets of the evolving smartphone at the same time.

Caviar’s version of a foldable phone can be used in various manners. There is a selfie mode, a tablet mode, a laptop mode, and a screen mode.
• Selfie mode: triple camera can be used combined with a part (1/3) of the flexible screen
• Tablet mode: the maximally opened screen: 3876 x 2758 pixels (215mm x 153mm)
• Laptop mode: it is convenient to use the keyboard matching the screen size (68,8mm x 153mm)
• Screen mode: allows the user to put the smartphone on the table and watch videos with comfort.

The iOS interface automatically responds to the position of the smartphone and its bent parts in space and switches to the desired mode. The foldable iPhone sports a bezel-less Super Retina HD (458 ppi) display. The aspect ratio in the folded and unfolded form (due to the three-part structure) is optimal for devices of such a form factor.

Folded, the screen is pulled like a modern smartphone (20:9 aspect ratio). In the unfolded form the screen has a typical aspect ratio for the iPad about 3:2. In contrast to the Samsung Galaxy Fold where the screen is square.

The concept by Caviar incorporates two cameras. A front-camera with Face ID dot projector. And the main camera system consisting of a 15-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 15-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 15-megapixel telephoto camera.

The foldable smartphone is equipped with an in-display Touch-ID (in addition to the possibility of Face-ID) because many iPhone XS users expressed their dissatisfaction with the absence of this option. In addition, Apple patented a new type of screen dactyloscopic sensor, that’s why Caviar engineers offer to use this technology in the new device.

The concept by Caviar is also equipped with a USB-C connector, this way, the revolutionary device will become even more comfortable for the users. The information about the possible switch of Apple to this standard also appears in the reports of analysts.

meizu 16s

The upcoming Meizu 16s flagship will launch on April 23. The company has officially confirmed the launch date via the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo.

The device has constantly been appearing in various leaks and reports. As a matter of fact, we have got two AnTuTu scores for the device.

The scores make the device one of the top performing flagships in the market.

The new score is around 5% better than the previous one. Furthermore, comparing the Meizu 16s with the other flagships has given out amazing results.

A little while ago, the device appeared on the Geekbench database and now, it has popped up on the AnTuTu benchmarking platform as well.

The Meizu 16s has given out a pretty impressive score of 357,975 on AnTuTu. Furthermore, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of RAM and once again confirmed.

Speaking of the Geekbench scores, the device has scored 3778 in the single-core test and 10493 in the multi-core test. Furthermore, we will get 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie coming up with the device.

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.

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.

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.
