It looks like the company is finally working on improving battery performance on its new phone, Leaks suggest that Galaxy Note 9 will come with a bigger 4000 mAh battery which would be the largest on any Samsung Note phone yet.
The information came from a popular tipster on Twitter. It is worth noting that Note 8 came with a 3300 mAh battery which barely lasted a day with high to moderated use.
Aside from the battery, the phone is supposed to come with a 6.4-inch display and it will come running on Android 8.1 Oreo. The Note 9 will probably be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6 GB of RAM.
It will be interesting to see how the phone performance in the market.
Just recently, the company launched an updated version of its J2 Prime in the county with some spec improvement and newer software. The phone has a 5.5-inch full high definition display and the subtle design changes make it easy to hold the phone in one hand.
Aside from that, the phone runs on a 1.6 GHz Exynos octa-core processor. The SoC is paired with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card like most Samsung made phones in the market. The phone has a metal unibody design and the front of the phone contains a fingerprint sensor alongside with 2.5D glass.
In the shooter department, the phone has a 13-megapixel camera on both front and rear. These cameras have f/1.9 aperture and the back camera supports Full HD video recording.

As ibtimes covered in its report. Samsung’s next Note device should be launching within this years third quarter. The phone will likely come with a 6.3-inch display and will probably be curved on the sides just like the current Note flagship. Apart from that, the phone is also expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which is also the SoC used on current Samsung flagships. Apart from that, the company will ship the phone with 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Internal storage.
One of the more interesting spec bumps will be in the battery department as the phone will come with 4000 mAh which is plenty more than current Galaxy lineup phones.
In the camera, you can expect the company to stick with Galaxy S9’s dual aperture system as it has been doing well in tests.
The phone launch will likely be happening in the August of 2018 and considering Samsung’s pricing tactics, the phone should cost anywhere around $900 to $1000.
As many users reported, it looks like the problem does not affect the entire display, instead, there are some affected portions of the display called “Dead Zones” which are affected. In these areas, taps and swipes are not registered which simply means any button or link underneath the area is inaccessible.
Obviously, if the dead zone is in an often used area such as the back button or notification tray, it may get really annoying for the users.
While increasing display sensitivity may be helpful in reducing the issue in some phones, it is definitely an issue Samsung may want to fix as soon as possible. In case you have faced a similar problem with your unit, you should probably contact Samsung’s customer support for a device replacement or a repair instead of waiting for a fix because it looks like the problem may not be fixable with a software update.
OnePlus has made a name for itself by launching powerful phones at a price much lower than other Android flagship makers. Original OnePlus One was priced at almost the half of the price of Samsung’s flagship offering and while the company has been increasing prices of its phone slightly every year, the company has always made its phone available at much lower prices compared to the competition.
Well, it looks like the came may not be the same in future. A recent leak suggested that company’s next phone, the OnePlus 6 will cost around $749 for its top-tier model.
As a leak recently suggested, the phone might also look a lot like the iPhone X and for the money, you can expect 8 GB RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC which just started shipping with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.
The report came out from CNMO with a leaked screenshot. Keep in mind that the pricing of $749 is probably for Canada considering other phones in the screenshot are with their Canadian pricing. Converted to US currency, the OnePlus 6 should cost around $575.
The phone is named Nokia 1 and unlike all other phones in Nokia lineup, the phone comes with Android Go which is made especially for devices with low-powered specs.
The phone has a 1.1 GHz MediaTek SoC and 1 GB of RAM and it will come with just 8 GB of storage. The camera department is not impressive either, the phone has a basic 5-megapixel camera and the front of the phone has a 4.5-inch low-res screen.
To match with its specs, the company will sell the phone for $85 and the phones back cover can be replaced easily, although these will cost extra.
Considering Android Go is an interesting ongoing Google project, we will have to wait to see if the phone does great in terms of sales in the market.
OnePlus has been producing some of most powerful Android phones in the recent years, and the company has made itself a good brand recognition thanks to its very aggressive pricing which is almost always cheaper than other flagship phones. With OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T released, it looks like the company is working on the next version of the phone.
The company has been using Oppo phone designs to create its own phones in past and with the launch of Oppos newest flagship, we may finally know how OnePlus’ next phone will look like.
As the picture below shows, the Oppo R15, and most probably the OnePlus 6 will have an iPhone X like notch at the top. Apart from that, the screen of the phone will stretch very much to its edges and the phone will have a larger display for the same phone size.
The OP6 will also come with a 6.2 inch OLED display with a display resolution of 1080 x 2280 with a 19:9 aspect ratio.
OnePlus, Oppo and Vivo all fall under BBK electronics and the phone generally share a lot of design similarities with each other. Considering the OnePlus phones have taken almost all design cues from Oppo in past, we can expect the same to happen with OnePlus 6 too.
Recently though, some concept renders of Nokia’s upcoming flagship started surfacing around the internet. These renders imagine the phone in two designs one with a normal, Nokia standard thin bezel around the phone while the other one thinks of a phone as a bezel-less phone with an iPhone X like Notch on the phone’s top.
The phone is expected to come with Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6 GB or RAM which will put the phone into the top end of the modern Android flagship phone lineup. The phone will also have a dual ZEISS camera setup and it will have 128GB of storage which should be expandable with the use of a microSD card.
Stress test from a popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything shows that the phone is actually tougher than Galaxy S8 and while there were some scratches on the phone’s outer shell, the camera was quite tough showing no scratches at all.
Apart from that. phone’s super AMOLED screen responded very well to fire. Returning to its original state ones the heat was taken away and while there were some marks on the screen, it fared better than many other flagships.
