The next flagship smartphone from Huawei is coming and if the rumors have any truth to them, it's going to be a very capable device. Leaks on Weibo seem to be indicating that the Huawei Mate 9 will be powered by the manufacturer's in-house HiSilicon Kirin 960 Octa-core 64-bit processor and six gigabytes of RAM. There will allegedly be different versions of the Mate 9 and the 6GB RAM version will sport 256GB of internal storage to go with all that memory and processing power. There could also be a more modest version of the smartphone that will sport the same chipset, but 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. All versions might also be powered by a big 4,000mAh battery.


Camera has been the highlight of the Mate 9 in all recent rumors since they have partnered up with Leica, the German camera maker for providing a rumoured dual camera setup at the back. The two 20-megapixel sensors from Leica will supposedly work together to provide stunning details even in low light, thanks to the f/2.0 aperture. The 5.9-inch (QHD resolution) metal-clad phablet will run on Android 7.0 and the OEM will make sure that customers get a LOT of colors to choose from while buying the smartphone. Apart from the 256GB/6GB version ($700/4700 yuan) and the 128GB/4GB version ($580/3899 yuan), there will also be a more affordable 64GB/4GB version ($480/3199 yuan) as well.

Samsung Electronics is about to unveil another flagship smartphone from the S lineup called Samsung Galaxy S7. A few months ago, there were rumours around Snapdragon 820 when Qualcomm was about to reveal the complete specification of the chipset and it was said there was overheating problem. With this, Qualcomm quickly discarded these rumors and assured that the Snapdragon 820's heating is under the permissible limit..

 

But it seems that might not be the case. As per new rumors, it has been shown that Samsung is actually looking for internal heat pipe suppliers for their 2016 flagship smartphone. Heat pipes in smartphones have become a common part. We have also seen other OEMs like Sony use heat pipes in their Xperia Z5 variants, so the it shouldn't come as surprise in case Samsung also decides to take the same route.

 

It can't be said for sure if this is more of a preventive measure to save the phone from any kind of heating problem or result of using the Snapdragon 820 (as it facing heating issues). We'd like to consider that whatever issue the Snapdragon 810 had, Qualcomm has resolved that in the new 820 variant. But in order to get the complete picture we need wait till the release of the device.

It was a big disappointment to many of the Samsung fans who were waiting eagerly for the Note 7, when it came with just 4GB of RAM and the same SD 820 SoC seen in the S7-series. However, latest reports seem to be indicating that the Asian markets such as China will actually be getting the 6GB variant after all. The rumors were further bolstered when president of Samsung Mobiles, Koh Dong-jin said, "We are considering launching Note 7 with a 128 GB internal storage capacity for the Chinese market, even though the handset made its global debut with a 64 GB memory,"


Although this statement by Koh Dong-jin does not exactly mention anything about a 6GB RAM variant, he did state further that, "We will continue to accept different needs from each marketplace, and respond by releasing localized products by changing memory capacity or color." As you can probably guess, this strategy is a direct result of stiff competition from Chinese manufacturers like LeEco, Vivo, and Xiaomi. All of this was declared during the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea with a price tag of 988,900 WON or roughly $897. Apart from the Silver Titanium, Blue coral and Gold Platinum colors, the Note 7 will also be available in Black Onyx from October onwards.

India gets another exclusive device from Samsung in the budget category as the OEM announced the J2 Pro today. Samsung seems to be introducing a series of new smartphones to the subcontinent with the "Pro" moniker, boosted by slightly better hardware than their regular versions. As of now, we have the J2 (2016) Pro, J3 (2016) Pro, On5 Pro and the On7 Pro.


We can see two major hardware upgrades in the Pro version, as compared to the regular edition and they are in the RAM and internal storage department of the device. The J2 Pro will sport 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, as compared to the 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage on the J2 (2016). All other features, including the 1.5GHz Cortex A7 quad core processor and the 720p display remain the same.


In case you are interested in buying the smartphone, you can only do so from the Indian online retailer, Snapdeal for INR 9.890 ($150). The three color options of gold, silver and black are pretty much what we have come to expect from Samsung's low to mid range phones nowadays.

It seems just yesterday when the Galaxy Note 7 was released and eventually discontinued, but we are now inching closer to the release date of the Galaxy S8. Granted that no date has yet been set in stone, it cannot be more than just a few months away at this point. Today, we have a new report/rumor for you, straight out of China (Weibo) and reported by TechTastic. It states that the S8 will sport 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, along with the upcoming Samsung-manufactured Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.


Some of the other rumors surrounding the S8 include a dual rear camera module, an edge-to-edge pressure-sensitive 2K/4K curved display, a brand new AI virtual assistant and Quick Charge 4.0. It will be interesting to see whether Samsung launches a separate Exynos version of the Galaxy S8 as well, since the Korean giant itself is producing the SD 835 chip for Qualcomm this year. Some reports are also suggesting that there might even be a 6.2-inch version of the S8 next year, but I am not so sure about that!
