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!

HTC One A9

 

HTC One A9 is latest smartphone from HTC and the first non-Nexus device to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The handset is supposed to freshen up the HTC portfolio and give another chance of the otherwise struggling One lineup.

 

The HTC One A9 is built around a 5" AMOLED screen of 1080p resolution and is the first to run on the Snapdragon 617 chip. The SoC employs an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz and another four A53 ticking at 1.2GHz, Adreno 405 GPU and 2 or 3 GB of RAM depending on the version.

 

HTC says it designed the One A9 from scratch, blending signature elements of its previous phones, such as the antenna stripes on the back. The A9's unibody is made entirely of metal, with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 protective glass shielding the entire front.

HTC One A9 Specifications


HTC One A9 is quite thin at just 7.2mm of thickness and it seems like a pocket-friendly chap with the 5" screen and the 143g of weight.

 

The main camera of the One A9 packs 13MP sensor with optical image stabilization and 1080p video recording (the Snapdragon 617 doesn't support 4K). It supports RAW capturing and Hyperlapse (stabilized time-lapse) videos. The front snapper has a 4MP UltraPixel sensor and a bright F/2.0 aperture.

 

One A9

 

HTC One A9 comes with either 16 or 32GB of storage, expandable via a microSD slot. LTE connectivity is naturally supported, while a new high-power DAC that promises unmatched audio experience.

 

Marshmallow A9

 

The Home key of the HTC One A9 doubles as an always-on fingerprint scanner, which will unlock your device even while the display is turned off. You can also use the sensor for Play Store payments thanks to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on the A9 right out of the box.

 

HTC One A9 is powered by a 2150 mAh battery, which supports Quick Charge 2.0 (and 3.0), though you'll have to buy a proper 15W HTC charger if you want to charge your battery lightning fast.

HTC One A9 will be available worldwide in a price of 600 EURO (about $580) by Early November,2015.

 



Samsung's debuting their new Tizen powered Samsung Z3 in India. It's designed as a value device, but it still features some major hardware improvements over the Z1.

The Z3 features:

  • 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • 720p 5 inch HD Super AMOLED display
  • 8 GB internal storage
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Compatibility for up 128 GB microSD cards
  • 8 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras

Despite the upgrades, the Samsung Z3 still lacks support for 4G LTE. The design itself is reminiscent of Samsung's mid-range priced Galaxy A series with the curved back much like a Galaxy Note 5.


The Tizen OS and software features such as Ultra Data Saving Mode gives users as much as a 40% data savings. The Ultra Power Saving Mode boosts battery life as well. Samsung's also tailored their My Galaxy app to offer content specifically for Indian consumers.


You can get the Z3 in silver, black and gold for Rs. 8,490 or $130. It'll be available later in the month via Snapdeal.

This year Samsung decided to go with the company's Exynos 7420 processor for both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge instead of Snapdragon 810. As per the rumors floating around the internet, both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge might use Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor. Amid speculations, now the online community got hold of the model numbers of both of the devices.


According to this list, the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930) and S7 edge (SM-G935) will be released with either the Exynos or Snapdragon processor. This choice will be dependent on the market condition and wireless carriers. The devices featuring Snapdragon 820 are listed for China (SM-G9300, SM-G9350), Verizon (SM-G930V, SM-G935V), Sprint (SM-G930P, SM-G935P) and US Cellular (SM-G930R4, SM-G935R4). Please note that most probably these models will be used for CDMA carriers.


On the contrary the international unlocked models like T-Mobile (SM-G930T, SM-G935T), AT&T (SM-G930A, SM-G935A), Canada (SM-G930W8, SM-G935W8) and Korean variants (SM-G930 S/K/L, SM-G935 S/K/L) will be featuring Exynos 8 Octa 8890.


All of the information given above is not from any official source. So it is very difficult validate the authenticity right now. Although the model numbers generally follow the same pattern, we'll have sit tight and wait some more information to be completely sure about this.

It seems Samsung is not able to cover its tracks when it comes to the yet to be released successor of the Galaxy A7. This time the smartphone showed up in the AnTuTu benchmark report and it seems the hardware setup is completely different from what was expected. Although it was rumoured that the smartphone would be powered by a Snapdragon 615 SoC, this report says the device is using a different chipset called the Exynos 7580.



While the rest of the hardware specifications are not changed, it is safe to assume that there will be two variants of A7 and they will come with two different type chipsets. The Samsung Galaxy A7 spotted in AnTuTu can be recognised by the same model number that was spotted at Bluetooth SIG yesterday. But interesting fact is that instead of a Snapdragon 615, this terminal was using the same chipset as the Samsung Galaxy J7 and S5 Neo - the Exynos 7580.



The chipset was built using 28nm technology and it has a total of 8 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. The CPU operates in conjunction with a Mali-T720 MP2 graphics chip and 3 GB of RAM. According to the source, the performance of Exynos 7580 is also at par with the Snapdragon 615 and MediaTek M6752, generating an overall score of 37,563 points in AnTuTu's benchmark report.

Samsung A9

 

Apple released a new lineup of devices this year... the iPad Pro, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and Apple Watch. All these new devices are running iOS 9 and powered by Apple A9 chipset which is said to be the most advanced and fastest CPU so far.


What you may not know that all these devices are actually Powered by Samsung, the Korean giant is the main manufacturer and supplier for the Apple A9 chip. Apple have chosen Samsung to build its CPUs since the Apple A6, admitting that Samsung is the best hardware supplier in the industry even though the companies are in a serious competition in markets and court too.

 

Powered by Samsung

 

Also, Samsung has been allegedly employed to provide between 3,000 and 4,000 12-inch silicon wafers for the Apple S1 SiP (which powers the Apple Watch) each month, based on Samsung's 28nm manufacturing process for all Apple Watch variants.

This clearly tells that Samsung has a big part of the Apple's devices success.

Although we do not generally associate Samsung smartphones with MediaTek processors, according to GFXBench, that's about to change. A Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G615F was earlier spotted on the benchmarking site and as far as we can tell, this could very well be the next iteration of the Galaxy On7. If you are wondering why we think that the unnamed phone could be the On7 (2017), consider the fact that the On7 (2016) had the model number SM-G610 and things should start to make more sense.


However, what was surprising to see is the fact that the smartphone will be sporting a MediaTek CPU, something that we have not yet seen on a Samsung device. I guess all those rumors about Samsung planning to buy chips from MediaTek weren't hogwash after all! Take a look below to see the specs of the upcoming anonymous smartphone from Samsung.


5.7-inch 1080p display
MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core chip, clocked at 2.3GHz and Mali-T880 MP2 GPU
3GB of RAM
32GB of internal storage
12-megapixel rear and front cameras with autofocus, touch focus, face detection, flash and HDR

It looks like Bixby will be dealing with more than just smartphones in the future as Samsung has just patented something that looks suspiciously like a pair of smart speakers. As far as concrete information is concerned, all we know about the patent are the pictures you see above and the fact that it is going to be an "Audio Device." Judging by the shape of the "audio device" though, I would say that it's a pretty safe bet to call it a speaker set.


If you are wondering if the patent said anything about the device having smart capabilities or Bixby in general, sadly it didn't. We are just speculating on what most reports on the internet seem to indicate. Besides, it's about time Samsung brings some competition to Amazon and Microsoft in the smart speaker segment, especially now that they own Harman international; a brand famous for making world class audio equipment. Do you agree with the consensus that it's a speaker or do you think it's a display of some sort? Or... could it be a speaker with a giant display? Who knows!

We know that the Galaxy Note 8 is coming but each time we hear about it, we get excited nevertheless. According to a Report by Galaxy Club, Samsung is already testing out Nougat 7.1.1 on its upcoming stylus touting flagship handset, confirming that it will most likely be the version of the Android OS running on the Note on release. If you were hoping to see Samsung release the Note 8 with Android O right out of the box, that might not happen. Nevertheless, hopefully Samsung will close that gap in the OS versions with an OTA update later (a man can hope can't he?).


The source once again confirms that the Note 8 will be sporting a similar display as the ones currently sported by the S8 and S8+. What that means is that Samsung is sticking to the 18.5:9 ratio for now, as expected. In case you are wondering if any other details were revealed, they were not. Nevertheless, it isn't hard to guess that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature hardware similar to the S8+, but with a much more improved dual camera module.

Android Marshmallow just reached 15% recently in terms of the percentage of devices running on the OS and that's good news. Android Lollipop still leads the chart with a whopping 35.5% of all current Android devices (divided in between the two versions) in the market running on it. Even Android 4.4 KitKat is enjoying a huge market share at 29.2%. Android Jelly Bean continues to power 16.6% (all versions from 4.1 to 4.3 included) of the Android devices out there till date, but if you go before that to the likes of Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread, the numbers are quite low at 1.6% and 1.7% respectively. Finally, Android Froyo is the oldest Android version to still be used by some users on their smartphones and the percentage is a negligible 0.1%.


Although Marshmallow is lagging behind, it is definitely gaining in size and it's good to see. However, Android 7 Nougat is almost out and once it is out, it will surely take the crown as the most advanced Android OS with the least number of devices running it, as is the system with Android devices unfortunately. In the API usage situation, the ancient OpenGL 2.0 is at the top of the list with 46% of all Android powered devices running it. OpenGL 3.0 is used by 42.6% of the population, while OpenGL 3.1 is utilized by a disappointing 11.4%. The Vulkan API is the latest and most powerful of the bunch, but it will take some time before enough devices start using it for the API to be even listed.

Check Point is a security farm that has recently unveiled the alarming fact that over 900 million smartphones around the world are susceptible to hacker attacks due to what is known as the QuadRooter vulnerability. If you are wondering what is QuadRooter, it is actually a short name for four vulnerabilities that are currently plaguing Android handsets that have Qualcomm chipsets inside. Through exploitation of the susceptibilities, hackers can gain root access to these devices, if the user is tricked into installing a malware onto his/her phone that does not require any apparently visible permissions to do the harm.


On reporting this issue to Qualcomm in April, 2016, the company acknowledged the high risk threat and has since developed and provided the necessary software patches to the smartphone manufacturers. The potentially affected devices include the biggest brands and their flagships in the market, like the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, HTC 10, OnePlus 3, LG G5, Lenovo Moto X 2016 and BlackBerry DTEK50. All handsets that have the August security patches from Google installed on them are protected against three of the susceptibilities, but the fourth one is still to be addressed in the upcoming September patch. Check if your device is a part of the 900 million club by downloading and running the QuadRooter Scanner application from the Play Store.

The iPhone SE has just been announced, confirming what rumors had been saying for months. The good news is, the rumors were spot on and Apple is indeed blessing its latest smartphone iteration with the mighty A9 chip. The 64-bit A9 chip is a combination of the dual core Twister processor clocked at 1.85 GHz and the PowerVR GT7600 hexa-core GPU. In case you did not know already, this is the same chip that powers the iPhone 6s.


The iPhone SE looks very similar to the iPhone 5 and 5s, while sporting a resolution of 1136x640 pixels on its 4-inch display. The 326 ppi is not very impressive but on a 4-inch display, it should be enough. Apple seems to have gone to great lengths to ensure that the SE remains as similar to the 6s as possible in terms of features. They have fitted the same 12-megapixel iSight camera on the SE that is being used by the 6s and the 1.2-megapixel front camera actually has a retina flash to assist the user while taking selfies in particularly dim lighting conditions. If you are wondering what the retina flash actually is, then let us inform you that it's when the display itself acts like a LED flash by becoming three times brighter than its maximum allowed brightness.


The in-built fingerprint scanner within the Home button now supports Apple Pay and Touch ID, but there is no 3D Touch and unfortunately, you will feel the difference if you are already used to it on the 6s. This is a mid-range device and Apple has kept the pricing somewhat affordable at $399 and $499 for the 16GB version and the 64GB version respectively. If you want one, get ready to pre-order it on March 24. You can also wait a week and buy one from the stores on March 31, when it officially goes on sale. There will be four color variants for customers to choose from; Rose Gold, Gold, Silver and Space Grey. Depending on where you live, you can also buy the iPhone SE with a monthly instalment scheme or get into a contract with one of the network providers.

Samsung Windows 10


Samsung released some Windows 8.1 tablets under the Ativ brand, Now as Microsoft released the Windows 10. Samsung is said to be working on a 12-inch Ativ Tab running Windows 10 out-of-the-box. It will apparently come with a Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 14nm Intel Core M processor, 4GB of RAM, and the S-Pen. It should be just 6.2mm thick and will weigh 600g.

 

The screen's resolution isn't mentioned, but there's no reason to expect anything other than a high density panel (HDI). So perhaps 2,560x1,600 or 3,840x2,400 are good options to consider.

 

This is nothing but a singular unconfirmed report at this point, so keep that in mind and take all of it with a pinch of salt for now. If Samsung really is working on this device, then a lot more leaks about it are surely headed our way.

It has become official news that the latest flagship ARM chips by Qualcomm will be powering a new range of Windows 10 PCs by the end of this year. However, Microsoft themselves may not be the ones to introduce them to the market, as was previously believed.


A new report suggests that Lenovo is also trying to bring forth its own range of SD 835-powered Windows 10 PCs and it may just beat Microsoft to it. However, there is no guarantee either that Microsoft won't be the one to reach the market first with their new series of Surface laptops. From the point of view of the customer though, it's always good to have more options, so we are not exactly complaining!


If you are interested in these upcoming laptops, know that they will be quite affordable as expected. However, the ARM-powered PCs will actually run on a cloud based Windows 10 OS, instead of a local installation like computers powered by Intel or AMD chips.

Nvidia X1

 

According to a new report, NVIDIA is hard at work on the successor of the Shield Android tablet (a.k.a NVIDIA Shield 2). The sequel of the 8-inch gaming slate is rumored to launch bymid-March or earlier.

 

Unsurprisingly, the biggest highlight in the upcoming tablet will be its NVIDIA Tegra X1 chipset with Maxwell GPU. Announced during CES in January, the X1 is the first mobile processor in the world capable of 1 teraflop floating point performance.

 

During the Tegra X1 unveiling, NVIDIA announced that devices with the new silicon will launch in the first half of this year. As always, we will be on the lookout for more info on the upcoming device. Until then, take the above report with a grain of salt.

The Next Nexus 7 ? Maybe! An upcoming 7-inch tablet listing has been spotted on the US FCC website that indicates that LG is readying a new Nvidia Tegra-powered tablet in the compact range. This could very well be the next coming of Google's Nexus 7 (2014) tablet, as the Google branding is clearly evident as well but we don't have any confirmation about this. It could be a Nexus Phablet thought!

 

The upcoming LG device with FCC ID A4R-NX74751 has all the makings of a proper Nexus device the LG/Google branding, Tegra chipset, and 7-inch screen diagonal. The presence of a boatload of LTE bands further sweetens the package.

 

lg nexus 7 2014

 

Although the documentation talks of 2,480mAh battery capacity, you should note that the voltage is double that of what is found on standard smartphone/tablet batteries 7.6V vs 3.8V. This translates to the same capacity as a 4,960mAh 3.8V battery, which is about standard for a compact tablet.
