It's been a while since Motorola has released a "true" flagship device with the specs, cameras, and build quality to match top rivals from Samsung and Apple. But the company is looking to answer the call from enthusiasts with the Edge Plus. Thankfully, reliable gadget leaker Evan Blass has given us the best look yet at the Edge Plus thanks to a new set of official, high-resolution renders. We get to see the device from all angles, including a close-up of its "waterfall display" which seems to wrap about half-way down the sides of the device. Also visible are minimal bezels at the top and bottom of the display, along with a single punch hole cut-out for the selfie camera in the top left-hand... Read more...
Back in late April 2019, the Nubia Red Magic 3 gaming smartphone launched with some pretty stout specifications -- for the time -- including a Snapdragon 855 SoC, up to 12GB of RAM, a large 5000 mAh battery and a 90Hz display. Now, ZTE is back with its 2020 edition gaming phone: the Nubia Red Magic 5G. As you might expect from a flagship smartphone released in 2020, the Red Magic 5G is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC, which means that it also features the Snapdragon X55 5G modem (hence the "5G" in its name). There are a number of RAM configurations available including 8GB, 12GB, and a staggering 16GB (a spec that we've seen recently with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra). To keep... Read more...
LG it is ready to jump back into the limelight with the release of its latest flagship mobile device, the V60 ThinQ 5G. As you'd expect from a flagship Android smartphone release in 2020, the V60 ThinQ 5G is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 SoC which is mandatorily paired with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem. The V60 ThinQ 5G follows the trend of larger displays for flagship smartphones, and enters the fray with a 6.8-inch FHD+ (2460x1080) P-OLED FullVision panel. The display features a 20.5:1 aspect ratio and incorporates an in-display fingerprint reader. There's also a punch-hole cutout for the 10MP selfie camera at the top of the display. But LG doesn't stop there; it also offers... Read more...
It looks as though LG had been gearing up to formally introduce its next-generation flagship phone, the V60 ThinQ, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), but that was before the Coronavirus outbreak threw a wrench into those plans. MWC was cancelled after several vendors pulled out of the show. So, where does that leave the V60 ThinQ? That's a good question. While we await an answer, what appears to be the first leaked render of the V60 ThinQ has emerged, courtesy of Android Headlines. As seen in the image above, the supposed render displays Monday, February 24, as the date. Before it was cancelled, MWC was scheduled to run from February 24-27. Maybe LG will still announced the V60 ThinQ on Monday,... Read more...
Although the Samsung Galaxy S20 family might have kicked off the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 festivities for 2020 flagship Android smartphones, it certainly won't be the last new device announced. One of the next smartphones to come down the pipeline will be the OnePlus 8 Pro. In addition to the aforementioned Snapdragon 865 SoC, the OnePlus 8 Pro will also come with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem. It's said the SoC will be paired with either 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM depending on whether you opt for 128GB or 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. On the display front, it's expected that the smartphone's OLED will measure 6.5 inches with an FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. pic.twitter.com/laO3szAcsM... Read more...
The first smartphones using Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 865 SoC will be arriving on the market very shortly. And while many people will be looking forward to the Snapdragon 865 with respect to performance and its accompanying Snapdragon X55 5G modem, it will also usher in the era of 8K video recording for Android smartphones. Qualcomm today is showing us what the Spectra 480 image signal processor (ISP) within the Snapdragon 865 can do. Using a prototype Snapdragon 865 smartphone along with a Sony IMX586 image sensor, Qualcomm was able to capture the footage seen below at 8K, which translates into roughly 33 megapixels per frame. The footage that you see was captured back in November... Read more...
We're just a few weeks away from the launch of Samsung Galaxy S20 family of smartphones, and we're getting our best look yet today at the flagship of the family: the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. [Alleged] renders of the smartphone have been discovered and they largely lineup with the leaks that we've been seeing over the past few months. The leak comes courtesy of Ishan Agarwal and 91mobiles, and we can see right off the bat that the Galaxy S10 Ultra 5G features 2.5D glass up front. This is a departure from previous Galaxy "S" smartphones that feature a more dramatic curve along the edge of the screen. Instead, the display is more akin to what we seen in the Galaxy S10e. Also visible from the... Read more...
What would a smartphone launch be without the usual round of pre-launch leaks and rumors? We may never find out the answer to that question, because frequent leaks are simply part of the game these days (whether they're real or controlled leaks is another matter). And so it goes over at Geekbench, where where a bit of specs and performance data has seemingly been revealed for Samsung's next generation Galaxy S20 handset. Or you can call the Galaxy S11. That is still a possibility, though rumor has it Samsung is rolling with "Galaxy 20" for its next-gen flagship phone. To avoid confusion, we will refer to it as that from here on out. All that really matters is that we are clear on this being the... Read more...
Qualcomm isn't the company looking to take over the mid-range to premium segment of the smartphone market with a new 5G mobile platform. MediaTek is also stepping into the ring with the Dimensity 800 Series, which is a lower-cost version of the Dimensity 1000 Series that was announced late last year. When it comes to performance, MediaTek has outfitted the Dimensity 800’s CPU with a big.LITTLE arrangement featuring four high-performance Cortex-A76 cores paired with four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. Both sets of cores can operate at up to 2GHz. MediaTek has also added a Dimensity 1000-class, 4-core GPU along with its in-house APU 3.0 AI processing engine (up to 2.4 TOPs compute... Read more...
We are fresh back from the 2019 Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit, during which the company revealed a number of new products and technologies. In addition to the XR2 5G next-generation VR platform, new Always-Connected PC processors, and the Snapdragon 765, which will target mainstream, 5G-enabled smartphones next year, Qualcomm also announced its flagship Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform. Just like its previous-gen predecessor, the Snapdragon 855 (and 855+), the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 platform will be the foundation for an array of premium Android smartphones released throughout 2020 (and beyond). Snapdragon 865 Chip Architecture - More Resources, Efficiency And Performance The Snapdragon... Read more...
The launch of Samsung's Galaxy S11 smartphone is fast approaching, and a fresh tweet from a reliable source claims to have inside information on when the smartphone will be officially revealed. According to Ice Universe, Samsung has penciled in a mid-February launch for the Galaxy S11 family. More specifically, Ice Universe says that the Galaxy S11 will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Fold 2 on February 18th, 2020 in San Francisco. This date seems highly plausible, as the Galaxy S10 family and the Galaxy Fold launched on February 21st, 2019.  Rumors: Samsung Electronics is tentatively launching the Galaxy S11 series and clamshell foldable phones in San Francisco, USA on February...

Earlier this week, Qualcomm announced its Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform, which alongside the Snapdragon X55 will power next year's flagship 5G Android smartphones. While the chip itself got the bulk of the attention, Qualcomm made another announcement that has huge implications for the mobile sector. Qualcomm announced that it will soon start delivering updates for its Adreno GPUs via the Google Play Store. This is huge news for smartphones, as GPU drivers typically are only updated once a year -- when a major Android release comes down (if at all). And even then, many OEMs don't even bother putting in the effort to ensuring that mobile GPUs are running current drivers from Qualcomm. With... Read more...
Qualcomm yesterday announced its new Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms, but the company was rather mum on specific details other than to say that both were 5G-enabled. Today, we're getting a full picture on what to expect when the first devices with these chips land next year, along with a clearer picture on the 5G modem situation with the respective platforms. Kicking things off is the Snapdragon 865, which is the flagship SoC replacement for the Snapdragon 855/855+. The Snapdragon 865 is paired with a separate Snapdragon X55 5G modem; which is an interesting development. It is not an integrated 5G solution, which means that flagship Android smartphone will still have... Read more...
It's that time of the year again; Qualcomm is holding an event in sunny Hawaii, and it's announcing a new flagship SoC for mobile devices. But Qualcomm hasn't just announced the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform -- which was expected -- but it also announced the Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms. As you might expect for SoCs that will be powering the bulk of flagship Android smartphones in 2020, all three SKUs bring 5G connectivity to the table. Given that this is just Day 1 of Qualcomm's 3-day tech extravaganza, the company is being rather light on details for now. What we do know at this time, however, is that the Snapdragon 865 is being billed as the true "flagship" SoC, and that it includes... Read more...
