Qualcomm Tries To Persuade The Us Government To Let It Sell Chips To Huawei

With Huawei's sanctions from the US government in place, the company can't make chips of its own so it's forced to source its SoCs from other makers, such as MediaTek, Samsung and Qualcomm. Even Huawei said that the Mate 40-series might be the last smartphones to run on an in-house Kirin chipset. That's why Qualcomm sees this as an opportunity to start lobbying the US government so it would let it make chips for Huawei. In its presentation, Qualcomm says that Huawei will ultimately be able to source its hardware to make 5G phones in the near future and in doing so, it might seek...

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra In White Poses For The Camera Alleged Pricing Leaks

A few days ago it was made clear that Xiaomi is going with the Mi 10 Ultra moniker instead of the previously rumored Mi 10 Pro Plus. A couple of leaked promo posters revealed the back design of the phone but a more recent live image is here to give us a closer look at how the handset will look in person. The white back panel isn't just plain white. It has a subtle pearl-like gradient while the close-up shot of the camera module confirms the 120x zoom, the quad-camera array and the overall design of the camera stack. The pricing of the Mi 10 Pro Ultra has leaked as well from the...

Xiaomi Ceo Mi Mix Line And Surge Chips Put On Hold But Will Make A Return Someday

Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, took to Weibo to answer a few frequently asked fan questions. These include details on the Mi Mix line’s future and the Mi Mix Alpha in particular as well as Xiaomi’s plans for its in-house Surge chipsets. According to Jun’s statement, the Mi Mix line is currently put on hold as it bears high expectations as Xiaomi’s cutting edge line of smartphones. Xiaomi was not confident with how its developments were going so it decided to head back to the drawing board.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra Passes By Geekbench Day Before Annoucement

Ahead of its announcement scheduled for tomorrow, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra (aka Mi 10 Pro Plus) stopped by Gekbench. The phone will commemorate Xiaomi’s tenth birthday and we’ve seen numerous leaks and teasers so far, giving us a clear picture of what to expect.

Oneplus Hydrogenos 11 Video Shows Off Some Of The Features

Today, OnePlus is set to introduce its HydrogenOS 11 software, which is the Google Play Services-free Chinese version of its global OxygenOS software. The major release should bring some new features, new aesthetics and more importantly, Always-on display. Something OnePlus fans have been asking for years now. But ahead of the announcement today, a video just popped up taking us through some of the new functionalities the HydrogenOS 11 offers. The first thing that we've noticed is the new Shelf, the new calling screen and new live wallpaper, which seems to be interactive too. We've...

Samsung Galaxy M51 Support Page Goes Live As Launch Nears

Rumors about Samsung’s Galaxy M51 date back to March and have picked up traction in the past months revealing all of the handset’s key specs. The successor to the Galaxy M40 is rumored to get its announcement soon and this is now even more evident as its product page went live on Samsung Russia’s website.

Week 32 In Review The Busiest Galaxy Unpacked Event Ever

Week 32 served us a proper storm of announcements, but none bigger than those at Samsung's Unpacked event. A couple new Note20 phones, a Galaxy Z Fold2 early look, two flagship tablets, a smartwatch and ANC-packing TWS earphones - it was the busiest single event in many a year. Google unveiled its long delayed Pixel 4a mid-ranger, which looks rather dated on paper, but the company has often delivered smartphones that offer experience beyond what their hardware suggests. HMD gave us the Nokia C3 entry level phone, as Realme and Oppo had announcements of their own - the V5 and the K7 5G,...

Rha Trueconnect 2 Truly Wireless Earphones Review

The TrueConnect 2 are the successor to the acclaimed TrueConnect from the Glasgow-based audio brand RHA. The new model may look identical to the previous one but RHA claims several improvements under the hood, including a much longer battery life, better ingress protection, more microphones, redesigned buttons, and more robust connectivity. At $150, the TrueConnect 2 are priced similar to popular offerings from other major brands. This means they need to be competitive with some of the industry heavyweights while also rising above the increasingly common low-priced alternatives...

Top 10 Trending Phones Of Week 32

The big shifts in our trending chart continue with major announcements by Samsung and the long delayed Google mid-ranger storming the chart. The Galaxy Note20 Ultra is certainly the more interesting member of the newly announced S Pen duo - so much so that its 5G and 4G versions occupied the first two spots. In contrast, the vanilla Note20 didn't even manage to crack the top 10. The Pixel 4a may have underwhelming hardware, but its aggressive price, decent base storage and Google's ability to extract better image quality than the camera hardware suggests helped it secure third...

Flashback The Samsung Galaxy Note Ii Writes An Even Better Story Than The First One

The original Galaxy Note changed the shape – or rather the size – of smartphones. It was the first to make huge displays cool. The sequel, the Samsung Galaxy Note II, went even bigger and stretched the new Super AMOLED panel from 5.3” to 5.5”. This new panel had a full RGB stripe, like the one used on the Galaxy S II and unlike the PenTile arrangement of most other Super AMOLEDs. This helped improve image quality even though resolution was actually slightly reduced – 720 x 1,280 px vs. 800 x 1,280 px of the original. Super AMOLED up close: full RGB on Galaxy Note II • PenTile on...

Weekly Poll What Do You Think About The Galaxy Note20 Note20 Ultra And Z Fold2

It would be a cliche to call the Galaxy Note20 Ultra “the best Samsung smartphone ever” even if it’s probably true. But it’s strange that we can’t call the vanilla Note20 “the second best”, it’s not even close. The Ultra costs an arm and a leg – $1,300/€1,266 – and yet it is a bit cheaper than the S20 Ultra despite having double the storage. And the faster Snapdragon 865+ too. Well, sort of. Europe, India, Brazil and Australia are getting the old Exynos 990 chipset, so there’s no performance upgrade for them. The Note20 Ultra also brings the second iteration of Samsung’s best camera...

Weekly Poll Results The Oppo Reno4 Pro Fails To Impress

The Oppo Reno4 Pro has landed – with a thud. Last week’s poll shows that the phone cannot lure buyers away from similarly priced competitors. What went wrong? The short answer would be “the Nord happened”. For the same price, it offers the better chipset (S765), a closer to stock OS and 5G connectivity (for those who care). It's behind on charging speed, however. Still, while 65 W charging is rare in this price range, it wasn’t enough to keep the Reno4 Pro afloat. We saw something similar in the Poco M2 Pro poll – people like fast charging, but it’s a secondary concern to having a good...

Infinix Hot 10 Specs Leak

Infinix is gearing-up for a new device launch. The Hot 10 has surfaced online, from a couple of sources, under the X682C and X682B model numbers.

Hot Take Samsung Galaxy Note20 And Note20 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra – while expensive – feels like a flagship with great potential. In contrast, the Galaxy Note20 – also quite expensive – feels like you’d be better off getting a Note10+ instead. What happened? Domino effect When it comes to displays, the difference between the Galaxy Note20 Ultra and the vanilla Note20 is quite stark. This time it isn’t size – at 6.9” and 6.7” they are closer than before – but it’s the type of the panel used. The Ultra has sharp 1440p+ display that can refresh at 120Hz. This also brings 240Hz touch sampling rate, Samsung wants...

iPhone 12 Production Reportedly Runs Into Quality Issues

If Apple plans to launch their new iPhones in the next few months, there is a good chance that manufacturing of parts and components should already be underway.

The iPhone 12 Will Be Retaining Its Massive Notch

One of the criticisms about the iPhone series with the TrueDepth camera and Face ID would be the notch that Apple has embedded in the display.

Google Turns To Recycled Plastic Bottles For Its New Phone Cases

Apple’s iOS Devices Will Have To Sit Out On Game Streaming Services

Google Discontinues The Pixel 4 After Less Than A Year

When companies release new products, they typically try to keep it around for at least a year before it is replaced by a newer model.
