As we progress more in the year 2020, the 5G is becoming more affordable every day, as Realme has become the latest mobile phone company to launch an inexpensive 5G capable handset. There was a much anticipation and hype around the phone due to its high refresh rate. The phone has been popped up on the company's Chinese website, offering an official look at the phone's specs and features. The device has 5G network support, a 120Hz refresh rate that makes it the first Realme device to have such a higher rate. The phone has 6.57-inch display that results in a 90.4% screen-to-body ratio. The display also has a full HD+ 2400 x 1080 resolution and 5th generation Gorilla Glass protection.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset. And all of this is available on just $360. The phone is available for sale only in china this instance but we can expect it in other parts of the world soon. The Realme X50 5G sports Qualcomm's latest super-fast Snapdragon 765G chipset that allows the users to experience the integrated X42 5G modem and Qualcomm's extra gaming performance and features. The device comes with Android 10 out of the box.
However, this is the first phone to feature Realme UI instead of ColorOS interface. The user interface offers a very familiar color palette and flat icon design that isn't much different from the Oppo's ColorOS interface. Realme UI offers much better performance than the ColorOS. For example, it has a 20% less memory usage. It starts apps 14% faster and gives 40% improved battery life. The device comes in three variants of memory. There is 6GB, 8GB, and 12G RAM options with either 128GB or 256GB of UFS 2.1 memory. You won't be short of memory with the higher tier of the RAM.
Realme is planning to release the X7 series smartphones on September 1. The company announced the launch date today through a teaser video posted on Chinese social network platform Weibo. The upcoming smartphone series will be containing two phones: Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro both supporting 5G connectivity. The Realme X7 series is also teased to come with a 120Hz display refresh rate. Further, Realme is like to offer the phone with thin bezels and hole-punch display design.
As per the teaser uploaded on Weibo, the Realme X7 series will support the 120Hz AMOLED display. This will be the first phone by the company so far as its current phones support 120Hz with LCD panels. The teaser released by Realme also mentions the Realme X7 Pro alongside the Realme X7. As per the video, the phones will support 5G to highlight the presence of the next-generation cellular network. The video also mentions a curved display design on the Realme X7 series. That teaser also suggests the hole-punch design.
The Realme X7 series comes with 65W fast charging and weighs less than 200 grams. The series is likely to come with a 4,500mAh battery, while the other phone could include a 4,300mAh battery. The Realme X7 series will be launched in China at 2 pm CST Asia on September 1. However, we don't know when the phone is available in other parts of the world. The Realme X7 series will be equipped with more than one rear camera and might bring significant improvements in hardware and software specifications over the existing X series.
Realme is ready to show off its next smartphones for 2021 - Realme Race Pro and Realme X9 Pro. The company has been working on the display technology for these mobile phones. The Realme Race Pro will feature a large 6.8-inch OLED display screen with a 1440p and 160Hz refresh rate. Higher display rates are not rare but so far only phone manufacturers came up with 160Hz before Realme. The device will be powered by a high-speed Snapdragon 888 processing chip and comes with a 12GB of RAM configuration. The phone comes in two variations - 12GB and 512GB for internal storage.
Realme Race Pro will run on Android 11 with Realme UI 2 interface and Adreno 660 GPU. The device will feature a triple camera system at the rear panel with 64-megapixel primary camera sensor and two 13-megapixel camera sensors. The front camera isn't' specified yet but according to rumors, it will have a panorama feature. There will 4k video support at 30fps, 1080p at 30, 60, and 120fps. For security, it uses an under-display fingerprint scanner that uses optical scanning technology. The device will be powered by Li-Po 5,000mAh non-removable battery that comes with 125W fast charging. The phone will be available in black and a few other colors.
While the Realme X9 Pro isn't the most powerful smartphone on the market, it should still make some significant improvements over its rival devices with MediaTek's flagship-category Dimensity 1200 chip. The device comes with a 6.4-inch OLED display with 1080p and 120Hz refresh rate. The Pro features up to 2556GB of internal storage, 4,5500mAh battery, and 65W fast charging. Like Realme Race Pro, Realme X9 pro also comes with triple-cameras at the rear panel with a 64-megapixel primary camera and a couple of 13-megapixel lenses.
Samsung is confident that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will outsell the S8 and S8+ everywhere, but will that really happen? It's only natural to expect that your current flagship handsets will outsell the previous ones, but if a report straight out of South Korea is anything to go by, that might be a harder task for the S9 this year. Apparently, the pre-order numbers for the S9 and S9+ are nothing to brag about for Samsung yet, since they are possibly the same as they were in case of the S8. However, what could be more alarming for the company is that the pre-order numbers could actually be even lower than it was for the S8 at this stage in 2017.
Keep in mind that these are unconfirmed facts and the S9 and S9+ pre-orders just opened up roughly two days ago. Let's wait until Samsung officially discloses the pre-order numbers before passing judgement on the S9's future!

Ever since the Galaxy S21 ultra was revealed, Samsung fans were eager to get their hands on it mainly because of the awesome camera features and adaptive display refresh rate. Usually, Samsung smartphones aren't good with their battery life, and consume batery life much faster but this isn't the case with the Galaxy S21 ultra. Most users are reporting more than 5 hours of on-screen time. The Galaxy Note 20 ultra is the first Galaxy phone with a variable rows refresh rate which allows the device to adapt and drop the refresh rate to 10Hz depending on the activity you are performing. It seems all very seamless while keeping the battery last longer.
The device has an ultra-wide camera that has dual pixel autofocus, and Samsung has enabled users to shot videos at 60 frames per second. The result is a more dynamic and sharper video that is better than anything you can get with its predecessors. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is priced at $1,199, which is $200 less costly than the S20 ultra. The new phone comes in a sleek design and offers a much faster-processing speed with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 chip. The in-screen fingerprint sensor is now bigger and it should be a bit easier for anyone to unlock this device.
Samsung didn't put the charger or microSD card slot to expand the storage but overall the S21 ultra looks like the most versatile Galaxy phone ever. The phone has a dual telephoto camera lens with 3x and 10x optical zoom that can get you very close to the subject. The S-Pen works in the same way as its predecessor. With a price tag of over $1,000, the S21 ultra isn't a cheap phone but it's a great phone with premium features. Samsung has already started its pre-order starting January 14. The phone will be released on January 29. The phone is available in Phantom Silver and Phantom Black colors but the matte finish looks sophisticated and expensive. Samsung will offer Phantom Navy, Phantom Titanium, and Phantom Brown colors as well.
According to a report by Appsflyer, Android users are much more likely to uninstall applications from their smartphones than iOS users. To be more precise, Android users are about twice as likely to uninstall an app from their phone, as compared to an Apple iPhone user. The conclusion was drawn by the analysts after going through data based on 500 apps and about 20 million devices. The comparatively short-lived interest in multiple apps, as exhibited by the Android populace could be a result of any one or multiple of the following reasons.
Android users outnumber iPhone users quite significantly, and unless the data was collected by keeping that fact in mind, the sheer numerical superiority can definitely contribute to such an overwhelming difference in behaviour between the two groups.
The Play Store now officially has more apps than the App Store, but when it comes to quality, the App Store is still leading. The Play Store has a lot of buggy and broken apps on it, which might be the reason why Android users uninstall a lot of the apps just shortly after downloading and using it.
Finally, it could be the absolute low-end, outdated garbage which some of the sellers (including Samsung) still sells to their customer base in developing nations like India, Pakistan, etc. Some of these horrible outdated phones even have internal storage capacities as low as 4GB (Useable memory being anything in between 1.2GB to 2.2GB at most). Add to this the fact that these devices also sport ancient hardware that can't even start the modern games properly and you have an instant answer for a lot of those quick uninstalls.

A German internet magazine just revealed that Motorola will be launching its first flagship of the year 2021 by the first quarter of next year. The device has no official name so far, but it's codenamed "Nio" while it's in the development phase. The newspaper also shared the key specs of the Motorola Nio. The report claimed that the phone features a 90Hz refresh rate.
Mishaal Rahmaan of XDA developer tweeted that Moto Nio may support an unusual refresh rate of 105Hz. According to him, the company is testing a default peak refresh rate of 105Hz of Moto Nio. Before the ROG Phone 3 was officially released, it was tested for a 160Hz refresh rate mode on the device, however, the final device came up with support for a 144Hz refresh rate. He has speculated that the company might be only testing a higher refresh rate as ASUS did on the ROG phone 3. The final device may come with the usual 90Hz refresh rate.
The Moto Nio produces a full HD+ resolution of 1080x2520 pixels. While we don't know the size of the device yet, it is revealed that it has a punch-hole cutout for its dual front-facing camera sensors. The phone features a primary camera of 16-megapixel and an 8-megapixel as a secondary camera sensor. The device features a triple camera system on the rear side of the panel. It features a 64-megapixel primary camera sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera sensor, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The phone is run on Android 11 OS out of the box and powered by a 5,000mAh battery. The device is expected to come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There could be a second model with 12GB of RAM and 25GB of internal storage. The model number of the handset is xT2125.
