Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
The main drawback of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is striking. Screen fold familiar to Galaxy Fold users.
Even according to the official renderings of the flexible smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, which is equipped with a folding screen, it was clear that he did not get rid of a clearly visible fold at the end of the display.
Now on the Web, there are new videos and photos featuring the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, which clearly shows that the screen fold, which is familiar to users of the Galaxy Fold has not gone anywhere.
Sources claim that the South Korean company used ultra-thin glass to protect the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, which will make the display more resistant to
scratches. However, the place of the fold, as it was, remains the main drawback of the second folding smartphone Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will receive a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2636 x 1080 pixels, a Snapdragon 855+ single-chip system, 8 GB of RAM and 256

Over the past two years, HMD Global has been using the Mobile World Congress technical show to announce new devices. This year, the Finnish company will also show its new phones at MWC 2020.
An information leak revealed the names of devices that could be announced at MWC. We are talking about the Nokia 1.3, Nokia 5.2 and Nokia 8.2 5G models. The report claims that the names of these devices are not final.

The well-established insider under the nickname Xiaomishka, who regularly pioneers interesting news from the world of mobile devices, has published several new photos and posters related to Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
But let’s start with the confirmed characteristics of Xiaomi Mi 10, which is equipped with a single-chip system Snapdragon 865, the main camera with a resolution of 108 megapixels with the ability to record 8K-videos and 50x zoom.

Finally, the following photo demonstrates in which boxes the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will be delivered.
The presentation of new products in China is scheduled for February 13, and the world premiere will be held on February 23.
Sony Xperia 5 Plus/Next Xperia phone
Sony Xperia 5 Plus – the world’s first smartphone with a 4K screen and Snapdragon 865. It will also be the world’s first 5G smartphone with such a high-resolution screen.
Sony previously officially announced the announcement of its new Xperia smartphone smartphones. The presentation will take place at Mobile World Congress 2020, a press conference is scheduled for February 24.
According to informed informants, this year the company will release two flagship smartphones, the first of which will debut at the upcoming exhibition. Presumably, a smartphone called Sony Xperia 5 Plus will receive a 6.6-inch screen with an already familiar 21: 9 aspect ratio. The display will be made using OLED technology, its resolution will be 4K, and it will also support the extended dynamic range.
In addition, the equipment will include a single-chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 system with a Snapdragon X55 5G modem. Thus, Sony Xperia 5 Plus should become the first smartphone in the world with a 4K screen and a single-chip system Snapdragon 865. It will also be the first 5G smartphone in the world with such a high-resolution screen.
According to unconfirmed information, there will be four image sensors in the main camera, including the main resolution of 64 or 48 megapixels, as well as two sensors of 12 megapixels and ToF. The main camera will be able to record 8K video. Fast charging, NFC module, and IP68 protection are also expected.
The price of the smartphone will exceed $ 850.
LG G9 ThinQ
The first high-quality images of the LG G9 ThinQ. The smartphone will receive a screen with fairly noticeable frames around the perimeter.
The first quality renderings of the next flagship smartphone of the South Korean company LG, which will be released under the name LG G9 ThinQ, have been published on the Slashleaks website.
If you believe these images, which were created on the basis of leaked drawings, the smartphone will receive a screen with fairly noticeable frames around the entire perimeter, as well as a drop-shaped cutout for the front camera.
The main camera modules are located horizontally in a single line in the central upper part of the rear panel, last year we saw this design with the flagships of LG and rival Samsung.
On the bottom of the device are the speaker grill, a USB-C connector for charging and data transfer, as well as a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, which fans should appreciate.
The buttons for adjusting the volume and turning on the smartphone are located on the left panel of the LG G9 ThinQ.
Yesterday we published the first live photos of the rear panel of the LG V60 ThinQ, which should be a copy of the LG G9 ThinQ, but with 5G support.
The presentation of new products will take place at the end of February at the Mobile World Congress exhibition.
Apple iPhone SE 2/iPhone 9
A reliable source revealed the expected millions of iPhone SE heirs, fans are disappointed. iPhone 9 is very similar to the iPhone 8.
High-quality images and a three-dimensional computer model of the hotly expected heir to the compact and inexpensive iPhone SE appeared on the network.
They were created on the basis of factory drawings by a reliable network informant Steve Hemmerstoffer, also known as OnLeaks, and published the thematic blog iGeeksBlog.
Numerous fans of the already legendary iPhone SE will be disappointed. The iPhone 9, which is exactly what rumored to ultimately be called the iPhone SE 2, has not inherited the design of its predecessor and is very similar to the iPhone 8.
In terms of dimensions, it almost exactly repeats the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 – 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8 mm, and taking into account the protrusion of the camera – 8.6 mm. The 2020 model is slightly thicker – 0.5 mm.
The main difference in the design will be the back panel – the iPhone 9 is made of frosted glass, like the iPhone 11 Pro, instead of glossy glass, like the iPhone 8. It is assumed that the smartphone will receive wireless charging.
As for the features, the iPhone 9 is equipped with a 4.7-inch LCD screen without cutouts, received a Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the home button, a single main camera, and an updated SoC A13 Bionic.
Oppo Find X2
The “space” smartphone will be presented very soon. It can get a very unusual design.
The Oppo Find X2 smartphone may be the most unusual in terms of design in recent years. Today we have already seen the protective glass of the screen, which allows us to talk about the front camera embedded in the screen and the curved edges of the display.
The source also reported that the new product will receive a 120-Hertz OLED screen with WQHD + resolution. And now we have learned when this smartphone will be presented.
The presentation will be held on February 22 in Barcelona. Unfortunately, the advertising image does not give any hints regarding the design of the upcoming news.
Huawei P40 & P40 Pro
Huawei P40 – six models for any wallet. Huawei will introduce much more Huawei P40 models than expected.
A well-informed insider under the nickname @ RODENT950, who yesterday published the first high-quality images of the Huawei P40 Lite smartphone on his Twitter page, today revealed new details about this line.
Contrary to popular information that there will be only three models in the Huawei P40 line, the network informant claims that there will actually be six models.
The most affordable model will be the Huawei P40 Lite E, followed by the Huawei P40 Lite, which will also be sold under the names Huawei Y7p and Huawei Enjoy 10 in various regions of the world.
The base flagship model will be called Huawei P40, an improved version will be released under the name Huawei P40 Pro. Finally, the ultimate version of the flagship with the best camera and maximum memory capacity will be released under the name Huawei P40 Pro Premium.
The presentation of the last four models is expected on March 26, and budget models may show earlier.
Huawei Mate Xs
Huawei Mate Xs will be stronger, more durable and smaller than the original.
Back in October last year, Huawei announced a new version of its foldable smartphone, which will be released under the name Huawei Mate Xs. A full presentation of the new items is expected at the Mobile World Congress 2020 in February, and the release of the smartphone, according to Chinese sources, will be held in March.
Huawei Mate Xs is more than just another version of the original Mate X. According to sources, a foldable smartphone will be easier to manufacture than its predecessor, that is, the company will be able to lower its price, and it will become better. At a price of nearly $ 2,500, the original Huawei Mate X cannot be called a smartphone for a wide audience.
Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Yu ChengDong, better known as Richard Yu, previously confirmed that the Huawei Mate Xs will receive a significantly upgraded swivel mechanism and an improved flexible screen. The future folding smartphone will be built on the HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G platform.
In addition, the source reports that the company has made many design changes to the Huawei Mate Xs. The hinge will be more durable, and the entire body will be made more durable, while the dimensions are reduced.
OnePlus 8 / OnePlus 8 Pro
According to available information, the OnePlus 8 line will include three models at once: OnePlus 8, 8 Pro and 8 Lite. Previous leaks also said that devices would receive support for next-generation 5G communications. In addition, it is expected to use AMOLED displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Recently, the company announced such a display and it is logical to assume that it will be used in the next series of smartphones.
It should also be noted that recently a Chinese company joined the Wireless Power Consortium consortium. This may indicate that smartphones of the eighth series will support wireless charging. This feature was one of the most requested by users. Other rumors also said that one of the devices will receive a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and four camera modules on the rear panel.
OnePlus 8 Lite
OnePlus 8 Lite for the first time in live photos. Photos confirm that OnePlus 8 Lite will receive a triple main camera.
Resource Slashleaks has published photos that show us OnePlus 8 Lite – the youngest smartphone of the new flagship line of the Chinese manufacturer OnePlus.
It is worth noting that, most likely, this is not a real smartphone, but its layout. However, there shouldn’t be any external differences from the final version, photos allow you to evaluate how the new product will look. This dummy just does not have electronic filling.
According to preliminary data, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones will be built on the basis of the Snapdragon 865 single-chip system, while the younger model OnePlus 8 Lite is credited with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 single-chip platform.
In addition, the photos confirm that the OnePlus 8 Lite will receive a triple main camera, whose modules are located vertically in the upper left of the rear panel. As for the front camera, it has a cutout in the central upper part of the screen.
The presentation of the OnePlus line is expected in May-June this year.
Google Pixel 4a
Inexpensive Google Pixel 4a will get a very productive platform. Although not the freshest.
Last month, data on the Pixel 4a and 4a XL smartphones appeared on the web. According to the data, the first device should receive the SoC Snapdragon 730, and the second – Snapdragon 765.
It was also said then that the younger model was codenamed sunfish, but at that time it was more indirect evidence. Now, the source claims to have found direct indications that sunfish is exactly the Pixel 4a. And it will really be based on the single-chip Snapdragon 730 system – far from the most productive today, but much more productive than the Snapdragon 670, which is the basis of the Pixel 3a.
As for the rest, we have long known that the Pixel 4a should get a 5.7-5.8-inch display, a single main camera, and a headphone jack.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2
It’s unbelievable, but the 400-dollar Escobar Fold 2 is simply a Samsung Galaxy Fold in a gold wrap. The true flexible flagship of Samsung.
At the end of last year, Roberto Escobar, brother of the famous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, introduced the flexible smartphone Escobar Fold 1, which was just a branded version of Royole FlexPai. But they promised to sell the device for only 350 dollars.
Two months later, Escobar introduced the $ 400 Escobar Fold 2, which looked suspiciously like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. And not in vain, because, no matter how wild it sounds, this is the Galaxy Fold.
It is a full-fledged regular serial Galaxy Fold worth about $ 2,000, which Escobar sells for $ 400. Although it sells – it is said loudly.
But first, the smartphone. Several people have actually received their second-generation “escobarophones”, so we can make sure that it’s just a Galaxy Fold with a sticker. Moreover, the company itself directly speaks about this in the letter that is present in the kit.
Escobar claims to have bought many of Samsung’s flexible smartphones from retailers and now offers them for 20% of the original price. All that the company did was set its wallpaper and put stickers on the case.
As for sales, the bottom line is that many argue that this entire campaign is just fraud. Allegedly, many who ordered the first model still have not received their smartphones. True, for such a manufacturer offers a free update of the order to Escobar Fold 2. But at the same time, at least three have already received this Escobar
Fold 2, and after all, on each such client, the company lost at least about $ 1,500.
In general, the story is extremely unusual, and it will be very interesting to see how it ends.
Apple iPhone 12 5G
APPLE WILL RELEASE IPHONE 12 WITH FAST AND SLOW 5G FOR DIFFERENT REGIONS
Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his accurate predictions, claims that Apple plans to simultaneously launch the iPhone 12 line of smartphones with fast and slow 5G modems.
Some countries will get high-speed iPhones that support the mmWave range, while others will not get so fast, working with frequencies below 6 GHz.
Lucky only the United States of America, Japan, South Korea, Canada, and the UK. It is for them that iPhone 12 with mmWave support and the mobile Internet at speeds above 1 Gbit / s are being prepared.
All other countries will have to be content with 5G with a range of up to 6 GHz. And this speed is not higher than 120-150 Mbit / s. Such iPhones will be delivered to the smartphone market.
However, we have almost no slow 5G anywhere.
Such a decision by Cupertinians is connected with the desire to reduce the cost of the iPhone 12 in those regions where millimeter-wave 5G mmWave is not common.
Nokia 9.2 PureView
Nokia 9.2 PureView flagship camera helps make Toshiba. HMD Global abandons Light technology.
At the end of February 2019, at the Mobile World Congress, HMD Global introduced the Nokia 9 PureView smartphone equipped with a five-module camera.
An improved version called Nokia 9.1 PureView was expected first at the end of summer, and then the announcement was postponed to the beginning of 2020. Over the weekend, there was information that HMD Global has canceled the development of Nokia 9.1 PureView and will focus on the full-fledged flagship of the new generation Nokia 9.2 PureView.
The message says that the company does not want to repeat the mistakes made in Nokia 9 PureView. Therefore, it was decided to create a completely new smartphone, and not an updated version of the device, which was not very well received by observers and users.
Nokia 9.2 PureView is based on a single-chip system. The source claims that HMD Global abandoned the Light technology that was used in the camera of the previous smartphone. Instead, HMD Global turned to Toshiba for help.
According to preliminary data, Nokia 9.2 PureView will be presented until the end of spring 2020.
