As expected, Huawei has made it official that the Mate 8 will be released as the company's most advanced flagship smartphone. In accordance with what was teased before, this device is powered by the Chinese firm's latest Kirin 950 SoC with octa-core CPU and Mali T880MP4 GPU, and features a 6-inch FHD IPS display.


For those who are still in the dark, the Kirin 950 chipset comes with four high-power Cortex-A72 cores, clocked at up to 2.3 GHz and an additional four power-saving Cortex-A53 ones, clocking at 1.8 GHz.


There's also an i5 coprocessor that "supports speech recognition, low-power consumption MP3, all the functions of a sensor hub, fused location provider (FLP) navigation, and reduces location-based power consumption," as per the statement given by the company in a press release. The SoC is manufactured by following TSMC's 16 nm FinFET process. Made from aerospace-grade aluminum and 2.5D curved diamond cut glass, the Mate 8 also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. In terms of camera, the smartphone has Sony's latest IMX298 16MP sensor at the rear end and an 8MP snapper on the front.


There will be three versions of the Mate 8, based on RAM and storage. Here's the breakdown:

  • 3GB RAM/32GB storage: 2999 CNY ~ $470
  • 4GB RAM/64GB storage: 3699 CNY ~ $580
  • 3GB RAM/128GB storage: 4399 CNY ~ $690

 

The press release reveals that the handset is currently available in China. The international availability details will be made public at CES in January next year.

Last week, rumor surfaced that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 won't have a major design change in comparison to the Galaxy S6 series. Now, we can actually have a look at the not-much-changed look of the S7, because of the leaked renders.

 


The Galaxy S7 designs were revealed by smartphone case maker ITSkins, and it shows a device that mostly looks similar to the regular Galaxy S6, with one prominent difference: the home button has become rectangular. Dimension of the Galaxy S7 is 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, which is also just about the same size as the Galaxy S6 (143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm). The rear snapper bump will remain intact, and same will be case with the LED flash, plus a heart rate sensor. If these measurements are almost accurate, the Galaxy S7 will have a 5.1-inch display, like its predecessor.


It looks like the SIM card slot has been moved to the side of the device in the Galaxy S7. In the Galaxy S6, sim slot was on the top. This device is supposed to be powered by Exynos 8890 chipset with Samsung's own custom CPU design (or a Snapdragon 820 chipset), 4GB RAM, an enhanced camera sensor, USB Type-C connector, and probably a microSD card slot.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is now official as it was unveiled earlier today in China. This is the first smartphone from Samsung's arsenal to come equipped with 6 gigs of RAM, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC. The huge phablet sports a 6" display that's even larger than Samsung's Note series of smartphones. However, in spite of being larger, the panel sports a lower resolution than the company's flagship smartphones as it is Full HD, instead of Quad HD.



Other specs of the phablet include 64GB of internal storage, a micro-SD card slot, 16-mp sensors for both the rear and the front camera with f/1.9 aperture, a 4,000mAh battery, dual SIM slots with 4G LTE support, fingerprint sensor, Cirrus manufactured Hi-Fi audio codec, a 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, Samsung Pay, Android 6.0.1 and an all metal body. We are particularly interested to see how the octa-core SD 653 performs, which is powered by four Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. The powerful Adreno 510 GPU supporting the CPU cores should also be able to take care of any modern Android games that you throw at it, especially since it's only a 1080p panel on the C9 pro.

Galaxy Note 5


Samsung has been teasing its development of a 4K AMOLED display for a long time now, but now a new piece of information suggests the first phone to brag with it is the Galaxy Note 5.

 

According to a new Samsung display roadmap, a Samsung 4K AMOLED screen is 6" in diagonal and packs a pixel density of 743ppi is coming on 2015.

 

S4

 

This information is not confirmed yet, it's very early to say, but is highly likely for Samsung to use this display on its upcoming Phablet. The Galaxy Note family of smartphones grow ever so larger in terms of display, so a 6" would be a logical evolutionary step for the Galaxy Note 5.

 

Moreover, recent rumors suggest that Galaxy Note 5 will be powered by an Exynos 7420 Octa-core chipset, which would have four Cortex-A57 cores + four Cortex-A53.

A New Galaxy note will be coming next year for sure and the korean giant labs is already preparing for it. Samsung has been teasing its development of a 4K AMOLED display for a long time now, but now a new piece of information suggests the first phone to brag with it is the Galaxy Note 5.

 

According to a new Samsung display roadmap, a Samsung 4K AMOLED screen is 6" in diagonal and packs a pixel density of 743ppi is coming on 2015.

We have heard of it many times earlier and once again, another report from Korea is indicating the same thing; a 6-inch or bigger model of the Samsung Galaxy S8. According to the latest report, both versions of the S8 will sport dual curved displays this time around, but the S8 Plus will have a 6-inch display instead of the 5.5-inch one we are used to seeing on the larger models of Samsung's S-series every year. The regular S8 will sport the 5.2-inch form factor just as its predecessors, albeit with a curved display.


The report also states that the S8 Plus, in spite of having a larger display than the Galaxy Note 7, will sport similar dimensions. This brings us to an almost established rumor about the Galaxy S8; the edge-to-edge bezel-less display. As you can imagine, the 90% or above screen to body ratio will allow the 6-inch S8 Plus to be just as manageable as the Note 7 was, by cutting out almost all bezel. Rumor also has it that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be launched at a higher price than its predecessors in April, at an exclusive event in New York.
