Nokia 9 Has Leaked Again, This Time With Renders And An Iris Scanner

We have seen plenty about the Nokia 9 in recent weeks and it looks like the phone just can’t stop leaking. The renders are showing it with the curved display and a dual rear camera with a 13-megapixel Zeiss sensors including dual-LED flash support were out on the internet this afternoon. leaks show that the phone will have a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display smartphone powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC.

The phone will sell at around EUR 750 (roughly Rs. 55,100). It will be Nokia’s elitist smartphone that will compete with top-end phones by Samsung and Apple.

It’s beautifully designed with a glass finish at the back similar to iPhone 8 series. It also comes to that Nokia 9 is the next premium smartphone getting rid of 3.5mm audio jack. Google’s latest Pixel phones are already missing it after iPhone 7 began the trend.

The fingerprint scanner is on the back panel. There are antenna bands on the side panels instead of back. The right panel has both power and volume controls. Those renders are posted by OnLeaks, which has a decent record of leaks. We are right to expect that product will be almost the same when launches. Previous leaks have suggested 6GB and 8GB RAM storage options, so it goes the same with this one. Also, Nokia 9 will have IP68 certification and 128GB inbuilt storage variant too.

The surprise may be that Nokia 9 may be first Nokia with an iris scanner and considering it will be specced out with the best components possible, it is not a surprise that Nokia is aiming at the newly launched iPhone X from Apple and Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S8 Plus.

Motorola’s Upcoming Flagship Moto Z Just Got Leaked, Here Are The Pictures

The Moto Z smartphone was launched last year with Moto Mods. And now it seems as if Motorola is ready with the next generation of the smartphone. The smartphone company gave its audience a preview to the Moto Z smartphone at the MWC 2017 while showcasing new mods. It also hinted the same more recently during Sprint’s Gigabit-Class LTE service display on Thursday.

The most notable change in the Moto Z is the oval shaped fingerprint sensor. The form factor of the Moto Z is mainly the same and it makes sense as it has to support present and future Moto Mods. Meaning that the next smartphone in the Moto Z series will feature a same size 5.5-inch display too like its predecessor.

The Moto Z smartphone is said to fall in the premium category, so it will come with exceptional specifications including Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 SoC. It will also feature a slim metal slab design.

The device that was showcased at the Sprint’s Gigabit-Class LTE service display was spotted running on a Snapdragon 835. The device encased and covered at the edges making it difficult to be sure if it is indeed the Moto Z(2017). However, Sprint later confirmed that the device was a flagship model. The carrier also said that it used a combination of “three-channel carrier aggregation and 60 MHz of Sprint’s 2.5 GHz spectrum in combination with 4X4 MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and 256-QAM higher order modulation to achieve incredible Category 16 LTE download data speeds on a TDD network.”

Last year’s Moto Z featured a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, and it ran on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. It sported 4 GB RAM and a 13 MP back and 5 MP front camera.

The Upcoming Moto G5 Just Leaked, Here Are Specs and Photos

Now Lenovo owned mobile phone makes Motorola has been known for its G series. The mid-tier smartphones are knowns for the value for money and their clean and almost bloat-free software. The next phone in the series – the Lenovo Moto G5 – just leaked on a second-hand product selling site OLX.

The listing has been taken down since, but 9To5Google has reported about the device specs and some images of the upcoming Lenovo phone.

As the leak suggests, the Moto G5 will run on Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB RAM. To complement the RAM and processor, the phone will come with 32 GB of onboard storage and an expansion slot to insert microSD cards.

Just like last year, The G5 will have a 5.5″ 1080p display and an almost same capacity 3080mAh battery. Surprisingly, Lenovo is not jumping on board with USB-C ports this time as the phone comes with Micro USB port and a standard 3.5mm audio jack.

Apart from the above specs, the phone will have a 13 Megapixel rear autofocus camera and a 5 MP front camera for selfies. Regarding design, the phone borrows some elements from the company’s flagship Moto Z line with a circular flat tire camera bump and almost flat back except there is no fingerprint sensor on the back and it has a curve on the sides.

While Moto Z phones have been known for their modular features, it looks like none of the modularity features will be coming to the G5 as the phone has no pins on the back of the phone to connect with mods even through the camera bump is very similar to the Moto Z.

The device seller has marked March 2017 as the availability date so maybe the phones are coming sooner than we expected.

Microsoft has continually been working on improving the operating system since it was launched in 2015. The company is preparing to launch an update with a game mode and some other new features, but Microsoft has something bigger in its mind.

MSPoweruser found some leaked images of Microsoft’s upcoming design language which is codenamed Project NEON.

Unlike the shift from Aero to Metro, the design overhaul will be more iterative than something of evolution, and it will replace the current Microsoft Design Language (MDL2) which is being used in the latest version of operating system.

As the screenshot above shows, the update in design emphasis more on text and images over the other elements on the screen. Apart from that, the software elements will also get smooth animations across the board.

Microsoft is also adding translucent elements on the app Windows that will show blurred and unfocussed desktop backgrounds in-app sidebars and other elements. The company has the component as ‘Acrylic’

The Redmond giant will implement the Project NEON later in the year with an OS update codenamed Redstone 3. It will be launched later in the year after the Redstone 2 (Creators Update) will be launched in April.
