Now we have full specs leaks just a few days before the launch. He leaks confirmed details on the processor, battery, and major difference between regular and pro phones. According to the leaks, both phones feature a 6.67-inch LCD panel with full HD+ resolution. These smartphones come with a 20:9 ratio and an impressive 144Hz display refresh rate. Both phones will feature the same Snapdragon 865 processing chip. The phones are powered by a huge 5,000mAh battery which is sufficient enough to keep the phone functional all day.
Now, you might be asking if the processor, battery, and display size are the same, what's the difference. Essentially, the phones are different only in the photography area. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with 108-megapixel as a primary camera with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel macro lens. The regular model has a 64-megapixel primary camera with the same specs for an ultra-wide and macro lens. The regular model comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, whereas the Pro model has 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage.
Huawei usually announces two premium smartphone series every year: The P series and the Mate series. The P series has already arrived in the market in the early months, while the Mate series is still on the hold and we can expect it somewhere in the second half of the year. With the Huawei P series already being announced, all tech enthusiasts are waiting for the Mate series. Especially, with the Trump administration's actions against Huawei, things are quite interesting with the Chinese smartphone users, as nothing to seem to stop the company from rising against the odds.
The Huawei Mate 10 was the first phone in the series and was introduced almost 3 years ago in 2017. The Mate 20 was launched in the next year in October 2018 , and the Mate 30 series was introduced in September 2019. This gives us a hint that the Mate 40 series might launch somewhere in October, as rumors suggest. While we don't have any official announcement or date yet, we can assume easily that the phone will be launched in near future.
The Huawei Mate 30 was initially priced around €799, while the Pro model started at €1099. The Mate 30 Pro with 5G was sold at €1199. We are expecting something similar pricing model for this year's Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones. The Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro will have prominent camera housing at the rear side with possibly a triple camera for the vanilla model and a quad camera for Mate 40 Pro smartphone. As per rumors, the Huawei Mate 40 will have a 6.4-inch or 6.67-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate.
Mate 40 will be using the Kirin 9000. With the US trade ban in place, companies can't manufacture any new chip and as per resources, this is the last phone from the company that will use already-stockpiled chips. The Mate 40 offers 6/8GB of RAM and Mate 40 Pro comes with the higher 12GB option. In terms of battery, we expect to see at least 4,000mAh or 5,000mAh battery. To answer your curiosity, as we all know, there won't be any Google Apps or services. Which means you can't use apps like Whatsapp or banking apps.
It's no secret that the two biggest names in the smartphone business are preparing for what could be the most important year for both of them in recent history. Apple released the iPhone 7 to an overwhelming success, but unimpressed reviews from even some of its ardent fans. The Galaxy Note 7 on the other hand, exploded into (pardon the pun!) all sorts of problems even after being received extremely well by the critics on release. The phone itself had to be shut down permanently by Samsung for safety concerns. A lot depends on the success of the Galaxy S8 in 2017 for Samsung, and perhaps even more so with that of the Note 8 (or whatever Samsung decides to call it).
The 10th anniversary of the iPhone is coming up in 2017, and we are sure that Apple is going to make it particularly special with either the iPhone 7s or the iPhone 8 (or both). We will now take a look at the most prominent changes that we could be seeing in the upcoming flagships devices, as per leaks and rumors around the web.
AI assisted digital assistant
Both the Galaxy S8 and the Note 8 could sport "Bixby," an AI assisted digital assistant that is being developed by reportedly the same firm which helped in the development of Siri for the iPhone.
Most experts, including us, are quite convinced that both the S8 and the Note 8 will have iris scanners that made its debut with the Note 7 this year. Apple too, may embrace the technology as the company is currently in business with Xintec from Taiwan.
Full screen pressure sensitive display
A display with almost no bezel seems to be on the cards for the Galaxy S8, as well as the next iPhone. If you want to know what we are talking about exactly, take a look at the Mi Mix. Pressure sensitivity or Force Touch has been a part of the iPhones for over a year now, but Samsung too may embed similar pressure sensitive tech into its displays starting from 2017.
Foldable OLED display
Samsung may move to foldable displays in 2017, while Apple may shift to using OLED panels for their iPhones in 2017 in place of LCDs. Many have speculated that the rumoured 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus will sport a foldable display to make it portable.
Reportedly, Qualcomm, Samsung and Apple will all move to the significantly more powerful, yet energy-efficient next generation 10nm processes to manufacture their SoC units in 2017.
Dual 20-megapixel camera sensors
Most reports are suggesting that the S8 and the Note 8 will feature dual 20-mp sensors at their back. Apple once again, already has done it with the iPhone 7 Plus.
"Safe" removable batteries
There is no denying that the Galaxy Note 7 disaster could have been somewhat controlled if only Samsung had opted for removable batteries. Let's just hope that Samsung recognizes that fact well enough to equip their upcoming smartphones with user-removable batteries.
There are plenty of other details floating about in the market regarding the upcoming superphones, but these are the most significant changes which the world is hoping to see from the two companies in their upcoming devices.

HMD Global is expecting to launch another Nokia smartphone. The new Nokia 7.3 5G features a circular camera module on the rear side of the phone. The module houses a quad-camera system that consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera lens and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera lens. There would be a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel micro camera. These aren't as useful as the other two lenses, but together they serve the purpose of having a quad-camera system. There is an LED flash on the left side of the camera with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner just below it. Nokia has used plastic on the rear side to reduce the manufacturing cost of the phone.
The rumors suggest that the phone is going to feature a 6.5-inch punch-hole full HD+ display with slim side bezels, and a thicker bottom bezel with Nokia branding on it. The top-left corner of the phone displays a small camera for taking a selfie. This one is rumored to boast a 24-megapixel resolution, although there isn't much information available right now. Overall dimensions of the phone make it taller than its predecessor but smaller than the Motorola Moto G9 Plus.
Nokia 7.3 is one of the phones that support 5G network connectivity. To support 5G the phone is using the Snapdragon 690 chipset that's also going to power the next OnePlus Nord. According to reports, it'll be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard. MicroSD card support is highly likely and pricier 6/64GB and 8/128GB versions are on the way too. The Nokia 7.3 will likely to be launched in October or November alongside the Nokia 6.3. The phone is set to price at 399 euros in Europe.
Samsung is holding the No.1 place of the global shipments in the Q2,2015. According to a TrendForce report that was released today. The Korean giant has a 26.8% of all the Q2 shipments, Apple comes in 2nd place with 16.4% thanks to the market demand for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Huawei lead the Chinese manufacturers (comes in 3rd place), with an overall market share of 7.6% and 18.3% among the Chinese OEMs. The company is expected to ship close to 100 million units this year.
TrendForce estimates the shipments to be down this year compared to last year due to weakening demand and negative global economic outlook for the rest of the year.
Believe it or not, we have survived 2020. We are only a few weeks away from the launch of Samsung's next flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21. As usual, we are getting the leaks ahead of the phone. As per reports, there will be three models in the series including the Galaxy S21, the Galaxy S21 plus, and Galaxy S21 ultra. The standard Galaxy S21 is expected to feature a 6.2-inch display screen, the plus model features a 6.7-inch display, and the S21 ultra features a 6.9-inch screen. Another leak by android police suggests a two-tone possible design for S21 series with bronze accents. Samsung Opera house confirmed the colorway availability of the S21 series. The standard S21 will be available in gray/black, pink, purple, and white. The plus variant, the valid colors are silver, gray/black, and purple.
An extensive leak by the same leaker in mid-November revealed all the key specs for the S21. The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 888 and in some regions Snapdragon 875. All phones are rumored to have a 120Hz display refresh rate. The standard S21 and S21 plus will have 128GB RAM/256GB storage whereas the S21 ulta will have options like 128GB, 256GB, 512GB. According to the Android police leak, the S21 will feature a 4,000mAh battery. The S21 plus could be powered by a 4,800mAh battery. The S21 ultra will probably get the bigger 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor. The battery capacity of the ultra model was also verified by WinFuture.
Samsung could feature a 65W fast charging.The regular S21 and S21 plus will have the same camera specs that include a 12MP primary camera alongside a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 64MP sensor for telephoto duties. For the front camera, the phone houses a 10Mp camera sensor. The S21 series smartphones can shoot up to 8K video at 30fps, 4k at 60fps, and 1080p video up to 240fps. Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra will have a second-generation 108MP as the primary camera along with two 10MP camera sensors. One of these lenses will support up to 10x optical zoom. Earlier rumors also point to another camera lens of 12MP wide-angle sensor. The smartphone series also sports laser autofocus. According to another report, the pricing could start from $849 and go up to $1249. The prices aren't confirmed yet and might slightly changed according to the region and parts of Europe.
Google has already announced an event for its next smartphones Pixel 5 and PIxel 4A 5G smartphones on 30 September. Pixel 5 is the 5th generation of the flagship smartphones from search engine giant Google, following the Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 4. Each of these phones was available in two models - a regular Pixel phone and the XL model. However, this year, it might be a different case and Google only launches one vanilla model. Maybe they thought that people are suffering financially so they might not be interested in the XL variant. This means we would have a budget-friendly phone by Google.
It is reported that the Google Pixel 5 will be different from previous phone series and won't be competing with the high-end smartphones. Instead, Google will use the Pixel 5 to be around the $600 price tag. There are no premium-like smartphones around this price point this year. Google will make this phone a semi-powerful yet affordable phone that gets the latest android operating system.
According to the leaks, Google Pixel 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G (or 768G) with 5G connectivity support. It will feature the best in class camera. WinFuture suggests that the Google Pixel feature a 12.2MP primary lens, a 16MP wide-angle lens, and an 8MP selfie camera with a hole-punch selfie camera to match the recently released 4A. Google cameras are known for their amazing photography ability due to software, and not the hardware. You can shoot a video up to 4k at 60fps and HD at 24fps. As rumors, the phone will be replacing the telephoto lens in Pixel 4 with a wide-angle lens. This is possibly done to further reduce the manufacturing price. This sensor is 16BP with an f/2.2 aperture. The phone will feature a 6-inch OLED 2340 x 1080 OLED panel in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a 90Hz refresh rate. The device will feature a 2340 x 1080 OLED panel in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Apple events may be starting in a few hours today, but as per leaks, there is a slim chance that the company will unveil its new iPhone 12 at this event. Instead, the company's next event due on September 15 is expected to launch the Apple Watch 6 and iPad Air 4. Leaks suggest that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 pro will be releasing later in the year at a different event. That's just a leak though, and we have to see how the event turns out.
The new iPhone series is to be launched as three phones. These phones would be called the iPhone 12 max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 pro max. These might include the latest 5G technology as well as the 5G networks rolling out in almost every country now. The 5G iPhone would be more future-proof than a regular 4G device.
So, when will the iphone12 be released? The expected date is the next event Apple would be hosting. Like many other events, we can expect it to be an online event that goes live at 10 am PT / 1 pm EST / 6 pm BST (4 am AEDT on September 16 in Australia). This means we have to wait till October, or more precisely on Tuesday, October 13.
Another leak suggests that pre-orders for iPhone 2 and iPhone 12 max would open the same week, probably the same day of the event. The new iPhone 2 range probably won't be the same. The iPhone 12 4G is reported to have a $540 price tag whereas the highest tier of the iPhone 12 pro max would be around $1000+.
The phones are going to have a glass rear side, but the edges are expected to be more squared. Some suggest that the upper tier of the iPhone 12 series will have flat stainless steel edges. A few reports surf on the internet about the smaller iPhone around old iPhones. The phone will debut a navy blue on its top-end models with midnight green color. iPhone 12 comes in a 5.4-inch display whereas the iPhone 12 Pro max goes up to a 6.7-inch display.
The phones will come with a wide camera, ultra-wide camera, telephoto camera, and LiDAR scanner. The phone came from a build of iOS 14 and is backed by multiple sources. The iPhone 12 might have a 64MP primary camera. For videos, it can shoot both 4K footages at 120fps and 4k slow-motion footage at 240fps.
Apple didn't announce this year's iPhone 12 at the Apple September event, but we are hopeful to have it unveiled in at least October. Apple's last event was focused on the Apple Watch, iPad Air 4, a new iPad, the Apple One Subscription services, and the launch of a new service series called Apple Fitness plus.
There are rumors that the company will launch as many as 3 iPhones called the iPhone 12 max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 pro max. There are also some rumors of having another name for the vanilla iPhone called the iPhone 12 Mini, and that we were previously thinking of like the iPhone 12 max. In any case, there could be more iPhone variations this time, especially with the iPhone SE 2020 that was launched earlier in the year.
We are expecting some major upgrades from Apple, including the first 5G iPhone. Last year the iPhone series didn't have support for 5G that made it less desirable for people living in the area with 5G support. Leaks and rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 Pro models will get a LiDAR scanner, just like the iPad Pro 2020, and we also heard about the new display sizes that range anywhere between 5.4-inches to 6.-inches.
The biggest change in the upcoming iPhone is power related. The iPhone 12 is using the A14 bionic chipset seen in the new iPad Air 2020 that will have a significant effect on battery life. The display is a super retina XDR OLED capacitive touchscreen with 1 billion colors and a 120Hz refresh rate. According to leaks, the phone uses a 12MP wide camera as the primary lens, a 12MP telephoto camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera lens, and a TOF 3D LiDAR scanner depth camera lens. You can shoot a 4k video up to 24, 30, and 60fps. The phone comes with Li-Ion non-removable battery with 18W fast charging. The new iPhone 12 series is available in matter space gray, matte silver, matte gold, matt midnight green, and matte blue colors.
