It would not be the first time that a Chinese OEM has beaten the likes of Samsung and LG in being the first smartphone to sport the most powerful flagship chip from Qualcomm for the year. LeEco had done it before and it looks like Xiaomi could be doing the same in 2018. According to a latest rumor on Weibo, the Mi 7 will be released in January and probably before the S9 or the LG G7. Now, one needs to keep in mind that a separate rumor has predicted that both the flagships form LG and Samsung will also be making appearances in January-February. Yes, things are getting very confusing right now, but what can be said for certain is the fact that all the three handsets will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (unannounced) SoC.

According to the rumor, the Xiaomi Mi 7 could also be sporting a 6-inch OLED panel and 6GB/8GB of RAM. Since traditionally, Mi flagship range phones have all been rather small, we would have to guess that either the rumor is misinformed or Xiaomi is going for a borderless display, just like the S8 or Xiaomi's own Mi Mix 2!

After this huge success, Universal Pictures decided to release a sequel, Jurassic World 2 will hit theaters on June,22nd 2018. Spielberg will return as an executive producer and Jurassic World screenwriters Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow, who also directed the film, will pen the script to the sequel.

Samsung 11K display


Currently, The highest resolution display in the Smartphones Market is the Quad-HD with Pixel density up to (500 - 700ppi) at max. Samsung is looking on breaking this record once and for all...


According to a confirmed reports from Korea, Samsung partnered with 13 companies and the South Korean government to develop the World's first 11K mobile display with a pixel density of 2250ppi and a resolution of (11264 x 8448), which takes the Smartphone displays to an Insane new level of clarity.




This 11K display needs a super GPU to handle this kind of High-res Graphics. The Korean giant is going to invest $26.5 million into the R&D of this new 11K display. According to the Executive Director of Samsung Display, this might look like "over specification", but the breakthrough would help the Korean industry in the future.


Samsung's goal with this is to implement a "3D effect". Details are scarce, but the way Korean outlet ETNews puts it, such a gloriously high-resolution screen is able to simulate the effect of a 3D screen through some kind of optical illusion. This 11K display panel will be available by 2018 in the company's flagships.



The Galaxy A7 (2017) edition was released just a few months ago and it's usually way too early to be seeing any traces of the upcoming Galaxy A7 (2018). However, it looks like we are wrong in thinking so because the A7 (2018) has apparently made an appearance on GFXBench! Not only has it made an appearance, but the show has clearly revealed most of its key specifications as well. Do check the screenshot out to know more on what we are talking about here.
The key specs revealed by the leak include the following:

1080p display
2.1GHz octa core CPU
Mali-G71 GPU
32GB in-built storage
16-mp rear camera
Android Nougat 7.1.1

I will admit that it's kind of strange to see the leak so early, but this seems to be authentic. The Mali-G71 GPU is good news though because it is the same one that's powering the Exynos 8895 within the Galaxy S8 at the moment. If true, the it will mean great gaming performance and 4K video recording capabilities, provided that Samsung doesn't cap the camera's capabilities or the A7 (2018) isn't limited by the sensor's imaging capabilities.

Samsung is actually not that far away from launching the Galaxy A (2018) series because the year 2017 has already sneaked nine months past us quite stealthily. However, it is still not the right time to be seeing full-fledged leaks yet. Nevertheless, even before the rumors regarding the Galaxy A (2018) series has even begun, we have a spec leak on our hands that originates from Geekbench. It isn't too revealing but it does show us a few things about the A5 (2018) and confirms what we knew already, which is the fact there will indeed be a Galaxy A (2018) series after all.

The Geekbench test results are quite impressive for a mid-range handset and while its no Exynos 8895, it looks like the new Exynos 7885 processor can hold its own. Check out the specs and Geekbench scores below.


Single-Core: 1541

Multi-Core: 4351


Model number: SM-A530F

SoC: octa-core Exynos 7885 (10nm) at 1.59GHz


Android Version: Nougat 7.1.1

A photo has surfaced yesterday which claims to be a live shot of the Galaxy A7 (2018) in hand. It is neither hard nor uncommon for people to manipulate existing smartphone models and make them resemble an upcoming model by following rumors, but whether that is the case here or not, we will let you decide for yourself.

True or not, what we can see in the picture is quite promising. It looks like the Galaxy A7 (2018) will sport two dual cameras and an 18.5:9 Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. Early rumors had indicated this and more. According to other reports, the phone may also sport the 1.6GHz 7885 64-bit octa-core SoC, 6GB of RAM, a single 16-mp rear shooter and a 3,600mAh battery to power it all. In case you are wondering, the image was leaked and published by SlashLeaks; the famous leakster. We will now have to wait and see if the rumors and this image matches up to the original device on release.
