Sony Xperia 1 II, Xperia L4 and Xperia 10 II - Overview of new products, features and official prices in Europe

Sony’s mobile division has not been in the best position, as it is struggling for profits – there are few smartphones from the Japanese manufacturer currently of interest. However, with the turn of 2020, the company decided to pull itself together, collect their thoughts and is beginning to get out of the pit they landed themselves into. Sony showed several interesting novelties in their new flagship, middle and budget level models. Covering several price segments at once, the manufacturer plans to attract as much attention as possible to Xperia. Today we will make a brief review - Meet the flagship Xperia 1 II, the mid-budget Xperia 10 II and the entry-level Xperia L4.Xperia 1 II (5G) - Quick overview and SpecificationsAt the time of the popularity of multi-megapixel image sensors, where the market is dominated by 48 MP, 64 MP sensors and 108 MP cameras being actively introduced, it is unusual to see 12 MP image sensors. Nevertheless, Sony, which itself produces these sensors, relies on now famous Sony Alpha technology, and not chasing megapixel numbers. Sony Xperia 1 II received a triple main camera at 12 MP and an iToF depth sensor. The flagship is the first device in the world that can do serial shooting with a frequency of up to 20 fps and offers auto shutter speed. In short: autofocus and auto exposure in the smartphone are performed up to 60 times/sec. There is eye tracking for both humans and animals. Also, another interesting upgrade is the lens by Zeiss Optics. The resulting impressive camera is set up as follows: The main camera is 12 MP with sensor size 1/1.7 ”at bright f/1.7, focal length 24 mm, Optical Image stabilizer, PDAF (Phrase Detection Auto Focus or simply very fast and accurate focusing) and a viewing angle of 82 degrees; 12 MP camera with f/2.4, PDAF focal length 70 mm and a viewing angle of 34 degrees (3x optical zoom); 12 MP ultra wide-angle camera with f/2.2, Dual pixel PDAF and a viewing angle of 124 degrees; iToF - image depth sensor for creating portrait photos.The Xperia 1 II also offers a 6.5-inch 4K OLED screen with a 21: 9 CinemaWide aspect ratio. The screen refresh rate is 60Hz and this is not a completely frameless screen. Like its predecessor, the front display has two small indents (Speaker and an 8 MP selfie camera). At the same time, the company says that the Xperia 1 II display can imitate the refresh rate up to 90 Hz, but it is not very clear how this technology is comparable with the real 90 Hz.The selected processor is of course the top Snapdragon 865 chipset with 8GB RAM and 256 GB of storage memory. The system is powered by a big 4000mAh battery, a big upgrade from predecessor’s 3330mAh. There is also a quick charge capability: 50% in 30 minutes. Naturally, the smartphone supports new 5th generation networks, it has IP65 / 68 protection, the case is covered with Gorilla Glass 6, there is Display Port support via USB Type-C, and Android 10 is used as the OS. Something to cheer about, the headphone jack is back. The cost of Xperia 1 II is estimated around 1305 dollars.Xperia 10 II - A Mid-budget smartphone with flagship ambitions This smartphone turned out to be quite interesting, and if not for the processor, then it could easily be ranked as sub-flagships. But the Snapdragon 665 chipset pre-determined the fate of the device, and enabling it to keep within mid budget range. However, 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage memory still puts the device in fairly good position.Xperia 10 II offers a fairly modest 6 inches  OLED display and with Full HD+ resolution. The unit also has a CinemaWide screen with an aspect ratio of 21: 9. The screen is protected by tempered glass Gorilla Glass 6.Flagship ambitions in the smartphone highlight such moments as IP68 water protection, as well as a very advanced triple camera of 12 MP + 8 MP (wide-angle module) + 8 MP (telephoto lens with double optical zoom). The front camera is also represented by an 8 MP sensor. The smartphone is pleasing with both a big 3600 mAh battery and a fast fingerprint scanner on the side. But let's estimate the cost of Xperia 10 II is about 402 dollars.Xperia L4 - a stylish budget member with Mediatek processor The smartphone is another member of Sony’s line of CinemaWide-smartphones, since it was endowed with a 6.2inch IPS HD+ screen with an aspect ratio of 21: 9. The company once again focuses on the fact that elongated screens are more useful in the era of content development and it is difficult to argue with that.The Mediatek Helio P22 chipset, which consists of 8 Cortex-A53 cores with a frequency of up to 2 GHz and PowerVR GE8320 graphics, is responsible for the operation of the device. RAM smartphone provided only 3GB, and a storage memory of 64 GB. The battery capacity is a pleasing 3580 mAh, enough for two days of active work with such power. A quick charge provides up to 50% in 40 minutes. The Xperia L4 also offers three rear-facing cameras and one front-facing camera. The main photomodule consists of a 13 MP sensor, 5 MP sensor (wide-angle) and 2 MP sensor (depth sensor). The front camera can take selfies in resolutions up to 8 MP. Xperia L4 is expected to be priced at about 220 dollars.

Galaxy Z Flip - a comprehensive review of the folding flagship and comparison with the Motorola Razr 2019

On February 11 Samsung introduced several flagship smartphones from the Galaxy S line, and also presented fresh wireless headphones. However, a new folding model of the smartphone has become an equally important novelty of the brand - we are talking about the Galaxy Z Flip. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, a smartphone turning into a tablet, this clamshell is just a foldable smartphone. In its form factor, the Galaxy Z Flip is fully consistent with the Motorola Razr 2019. But the similarities end there since the Galaxy Z Flip offers hardware of a completely different level. In general, let's take a closer look at another miracle of engineering. Galaxy Z Flip - a full-fledged folding smartphone Foldable smartphones today are relevant. The dimensions of gadgets have long become transcendental - it is impossible to use one hand with any of the modern devices. Yes, and wearing them in jeans pockets is still a "pleasure". At the same time, reducing gadgets is not the right decision, because now everything is focused on content - the more it fits on the display, the better. It would seem an insoluble task, but smartphone manufacturers thought carefully and decided to bend smartphones - the benefit of OLED displays allows you to do this without any difficulties. You can bend in different ways, it is. For example, Huawei decided to make a Mate X tablet, which folds into a two-way smartphone, and Samsung released the Galaxy Fold smartphone, which folds into a tablet. Then Motorola burst into the market, which completely bent the familiar smartphone. The latter, apparently, prompted Samsung to reconsider its attitude towards bending smartphones - this is how the Galaxy Z Flip appeared, which is an analogue of Motorola Razr 2019. Such a decision of a folding smartphone is the most advantageous and Samsung itself calls it the “form of the future” gadgets. Let's get acquainted with the technical equipment of this device. Galaxy Z Flip - Specifications If we forget that we have a folding device, then it can be easily confused with any classic flagship smartphone of 2019. After all, the Galaxy Z Flip equipped with a large 6.7-inch Super AMOLED-screen with a resolution of FullHD +, which provides a pixel density of up to 425 dots per inch. For the operation of the device meets the top processor of the past year Snapdragon 855 Plus, supplemented with 8 GB of RAM, as well as an internal drive of 256 GB. The camera on the rear panel consists of a dual sensor: one 12 MP sensor is responsible for standard photos, and an additional 12 MP camera photographs with an ultra-wide viewing angle. The aperture of the first lens is f / 1.8, and the second f / 2.2. On the front panel there is a 10 MP selfie camera. What is the main camera, that the front ones can record video in 4K resolution, only for the main frame rate is 60fps, and for the front 30fps. The average battery capacity is a 3300 mAh battery with support for fast charging via wire (15W) and wireless (9W). There is Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, an NFC module and a fingerprint scanner on the side. The dimensions of the Galaxy Z Flip when unfolded are 167.9 x 73.6 x 7.2 mm, and when folded 87.4 x 73.6 x 17.3 mm. Galaxy Z Flip - comparison with Motorola Razr 2019 We have already mentioned how the Galaxy Z Flip differs from Galaxy Fold and Mate X, and due to the different form factor it is not entirely correct to compare smartphones. But Motorola Razr 2019 and Galaxy Z Flip are very similar in appearance, so here are a few facts that show the superiority of Galaxy over Razr: Galaxy Z Flip has a glass display cover, not a plastic one. Also, the diagonal of its display is larger - 6.7 inches versus 6.2 inches for Razr; Galaxy Z Flip has a more powerful chipset (Snapdragon 855+ vs Snapdragon 710); Galaxy Z Flip has more memory (8/256 GB vs 6/128 GB); Galaxy Z Flip offers a 3300 mAh battery against a competitor's 2510; Galaxy Z Flip has a dual 12 MP camera versus a single Razr camera (16 MP with f / 1.7); Galaxy Z Flip costs $ 1,380, and the 2019 Razr is priced at $ 1,500. The downside of the Galaxy Z Flip is only that it does not have an external small display, like the Motorola Razr 2019 (more precisely, it is, but very tiny - only time shows). This is not a very important thing, but its presence is clearly better than the absence. In all other respects, Samsung’s solution is a cut above the expensive Motorola toy.Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro - newly released flagship

A few days ago I was officially announced the launch of Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. The announcement of new products was in China on February 13 via an online channel due to coronavirus. There is a lot of information about smartphones, and not only the characteristics become known, but also the prices that have already managed to disappoint. You remember that Xiaomi specifically created the Redmi sub-brand so that they produce cheap gadgets, and users finally broke the stereotype that Xiaomi = cheap. Then the company said that it would increase the cost of its devices, but if this was not yet in 2019, then in 2020 Xiaomi will keep its promise - the new flagships will rise in price by 1.5 times compared to their predecessors. Whether this helps Xiaomi to increase revenue or the army of fans will turn its back on its idol, only time will tell. Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro - an overview of the new flagships The online networks have already a sufficient number of posters with smartphones - these are official images of gadgets. Therefore, we can evaluate the appearance of smartphones, as well as understand what are the differences between Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. And the differences, as it turned out, are extremely small, and you can notice them only with a detailed comparison of gadgets. Both smartphones are frameless with a display made using the Waterfall technology (screen-waterfall), which smoothly bends on the sides. At the same time, there are no unnecessary elements on the front part - only a thin mesh for the conversational speaker and a front camera built into the cutout in the display. Earlier it was reported that the Mi 10 Pro will receive a dual front camera, but this was not true. If you look at the back of the devices, then here they are the same. They are very much like Xiaomi Mi Note 10, offering four camera modules in the form of an exclamation mark - no huge camera pads like Huawei or Samsung. However, here lies the main difference between Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro - the latter between the cameras still had a laser AF assistant and a ToF sensor used to determine the depth of field of the scene. You can also notice different camera lenses on smartphones, so the devices will definitely have a different set of photo modules. As for the technical characteristic, both devices will also not differ much. The basis of all the basics will be the Snapdragon 865 processor, 108 MP camera, the ability to shoot video in 8K resolution and a 50x hybrid zoom. The devices have received support for the Wi-Fi 6 protocol, RAM standard LPDDR5 and drive standard UFS 3.0. According to the latest data, Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will additionally receive fast charging at 65 watts. Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro - release date and price In China, the presentation of the devices was held online February 13th. As we already said, smartphones will not cost cheap, since Xiaomi wants to break this stereotype and come close to the cost of OnePlus, Huawei and Samsung devices. Therefore, the initial price for Xiaomi Mi 10 with 8/128 GB of memory will be $ 600, and the Mi 10 Pro for 8/256 GB will cost $ 742. We remind you that the price tag of Xiaomi Mi 9 last year started from $ 445.Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Huawei P40 Pro - disclosed all the technical characteristics of the flagship, as well as its appearance

At the end of March 2020, Huawei will introduce two flagships - the P40 and P40 Pro. As usual, the entire stock of advanced technologies and developments will be received by the Huawei P40 Pro model, which means we'll talk about this smartphone today. As of today there are already enough leaks and information regarding the gadget, in fact, the design of the device is almost 100% disclosed. If you believe the leaks, the device will receive an ultra-powerful main camera with the ability to 10x optical zoom, a huge battery of 5500 mAh, fast charge of 50 watts, and at the same time a lower price tag compared to the previous model Huawei P30 Pro (due to the lack of Google- services). In general, some monster of the smartphone industry is waiting for us, and it really pleases that Huawei does not give up and continues to bend its line no matter what! Huawei P40 Pro - Preview Although Huawei is trying to create a more or less unique smartphone design, this time we can observe some symbiosis: the company borrowed some elements from Apple and some from Samsung. So, on the front panel, you can see an almost completely frameless display with a hole for a dual front camera in the upper left corner. On the back panel, there is a fairly massive platform with cameras, of which there are five pieces. As usual, the case will be made of glass and metal, and in the end, we will get a pretty beautiful and interesting device. It is necessary to surprise users, therefore, the device is equipped with a 6.5-inch QuadHD-screen (for the first time at Huawei) with an AMOLED matrix, which has a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. In this case, the fingerprint scanner will be located under the display. For the work of the gadget, its own Kirin 990 chip will answer, which fights on equal terms with the Snapdragon 865. The solution is very powerful, especially in terms of artificial intelligence, and it will also give confidence 8/12 GB of RAM paired with 128/256 GB of ROM. What are smartphones showing off in the first place? Of course the cameras! Huawei P40 Pro will generally receive the most top-end kit among the entire line of Huawei P, offering five sensors at once, which is not surprising. The most important photosensor will be a 52 MP sensor with a lens from Leica. Like other matrices with a large number of megapixels, this solution can combine 4 pixels into one for better shooting at night, and also gives optical zoom without loss of quality by crop of the picture. So, when shooting at a resolution of 52 MP, the pixel size is 0.96 μm, and when combining the pixels in a pool, the output is 13 MP with a total pixel size of 1.92 μm. Also in the device, there will be a telephoto camera with tenfold optical zoom at 16 MP, a wide-angle camera, a macro camera and a ToF depth sensor. Huawei P40 Pro will be released on the Android operating system - while the development of its own OS has either hung or is slowly moving, but it is not ready! There will be no Google services in the device, but Huawei will replace the partially missing programs with utilities from its own AppGallery store - at least the most popular programs can be downloaded there. Due to missing services from Google, the Huawei P40 Pro will cost about $ 200 less than the P30 Pro at the start of sales. Finally, the company also intends to greatly increase its battery capacity, instead of the 4200 mAh battery (this is the case in the Huawei P30 Pro), the new product will have a 5500 mAh battery with support for fast charging at 50 watts. It follows from this that the company is doing everything to get around its competitors and not face the dirt, even in such a difficult situation.Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Poco X2 – it might be the best smartphone in the middle price segment

In August 2018 Xiaomi launched the “flagship” called the Pocophone F1. It became popular for several reasons, but among all the most important were the price and a set of characteristics. For relatively little money, the device offered top-end hardware in the form of Snapdragon 845, good cameras, enough memory, and a capacious battery. But due to the low price, the company still had to save on something, in particular, the materials of the case. The Pocophone F1 received a completely plastic case, although this did not bother the buyers at all - they knew why they were buying the cheapest flagship on the market. In 2019, we all waited for the continuation in the form of the Pocophone F2, but alas, this did not happen. Many of us have already lost hope, but at the beginning of 2020 very interesting information became known: Xiaomi is preparing both the flagship Pocophone F2 and its simplified model Pocophone X2 (Poco X2). That's exactly about the sub-flagship model we’ll talk today since almost all the parameters of the gadget became known and the appearance was partially revealed. Poco X2 - smartphone design For about a month there have been talks about this model, but only now everything has fallen into place. Poco X2 is a Redmi K30 clone with some minor differences. That is, the appearance of the device will turn out to be almost completely identical to the Redmi K30 - this is directly indicated by the device’s poster merged into the network. For better or worse, let everyone decide for themself, but it is worth noting that for Xiaomi this is a common practice and there is nothing to be surprised about. As for the design of the device itself, it is fully consistent with the spirit of modern gadgets: a frameless display, a dual front camera, built directly into the screen, a vertical four-module main camera on the back, located in the middle, a glass case with a gradient - everything you need from an average price device 2020 categories. Poco X2 - Key Features As much as we would not like, the Pocophone X2 will copy the Redmi K30 model and not the Redmi K30 5G. Therefore, the device is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor instead of the top-level sub-flagship chipset - Snapdragon 765G. In addition to lower performance, Poco X2 will also not be able to boast of support for 5G networks, being content only with 4th generation networks. On the other hand, let's don’t forget that its an inexpensive smartphone for the mass market, so this configuration is soft of justifiable. So far it is known that the device will receive 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of permanent memory. Not so much, so we are sure that other modifications of the gadget will be presented, at least 6/128 GB. Nothing is said about the support of memory cards, but since Redmi K30 has something similar, then it's worth the wait. Similarly, the IPS screen with a diagonal of 6.67 inches and a resolution of Full HD + will migrate to the device and 120 Hz. The main camera of the smartphone will offer a four-module system. The main sensor in the device will be a 64 MP Sony IMX686 sensor with an aperture of f / 1.89. For wide-angle photos with a viewing angle of up to 120 degrees, an 8 MP sensor is useful, a 2 MP sensor is used to measure the depth of the scene, and the microcosm will be used to shoot a macro camera at 2 MP. On the front part in the cutout in the display there will be a dual front camera of 20 MP + 2 MP (an additional sensor is needed to create portrait selfies). Like the Redmi K30, the Poco X2 will offer a capacious 4,500 mAh battery. It will be possible to charge it quickly enough since a charging unit with a capacity of up to 30 watts will also be supplied with the gadget. It is very pleasing that the Poco X2 will keep with it a 3.5 mm jack, as well as receive an NFC module for contactless payment. Finally, MIUI 11 based on Android 10 will act as the operating system in the smartphone. Poco X2 - release date and price According to the published poster, the base cost of the gadget will be about 265 dollars. The presentation of the smartphone will take place very soon - the announcement of new items is scheduled for February 4. Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

iPhone 9 / iPhone SE 2 - release date and specifications

In 2020 Apple will release a new affordable smartphone - no one doubts that. Too many rumors and leaks. At the time of writing, its exact name is unknown, but on the Internet, the inexpensive iPhone 2020 is called iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9. In February, Apple plans to begin the assembly process, ahead of the plan that they had before. iPhone 9 / iPhone SE 2 - release date, price, specifications According to Bloomberg (and this is a very respected source), Apple’s new smartphone should be met in March. Three Taiwanese companies that are responsible for the assembly line: Wistron Corp, Pegatron Corp and Hon Hai Precision Industry in February will begin assembling an unknown smartphone from Apple - these are already coincidences. This new and secret model will become the heir to the iPhone SE - the smallest and most powerful smartphone, which once returned fashion to compact flagships. If you believe the rumors, the design of the device will be based on the iPhone 8, which now costs $ 499. So you should not expect a special revolution in terms of appearance - a typical Apple. But what is there “inside”? Recently, the demand for compact smartphones has increased and the iPhone Xr has received widespread recognition worldwide - sales figures proof this. In 2019, the iPhone XR became Apple's best-selling smartphone, about 36% of all sold devices. Apple is not fools, so they planned the release of an even more inexpensive smartphone in March 2020. According to recent OnLeaks renderings, the smartphone will be equipped with a 4.7 ”display with thick frames on top and bottom. No thin frames, designer tricks and fashionable chips - only hardcore, only 16: 9 aspect ratio. On the front of the iPhone 9, a physical Touch ID fingerprint scanner will show off. Most likely, iPhone SE 2 will not receive Face ID and other more or less recent Apple technologies. The power button is located on the right side, and the volume control is on the left. The Lightning connector is located at the bottom as always. The back panel of the iPhone 9 will consist of frosted glass - similar to that installed in the iPhone 8. The device will be equipped with a single camera with an LED flash in the upper left corner - a straight retro smartphone is obtained.   The Apple CE A13 Bionic processor, which can be found in the latest iPhone 11 series, will be responsible for the speed of iPhone CE 2 operation. That is what will “sell” a smartphone. Good performance – for the reasonable money, as for Apple, money. The device will most likely have 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory. Hot new product will work on the basis of iOS 13. What for the money? Most likely, price tags will not break. The most frequent “numbers” that sound are “something around $ 400.” Rumors of a second iPhone with a large 5.5 ”or 6.1” display, priced at $ 499, are also spreading on the Internet. This phone may be called the iPhone 9 Plus. However, there is no official message from Apple or any of its partner companies responsible for the assembly, so hoping for a similar device is silly. Specifications iPhone 9 / iPhone SE 2: Screen: 4.7``, matrix type - LCD IPS, Retina HD Case: aluminum + glass Protection: IP68 RAM: 3 GB ROM: 64/128 GB Processor: Apple A13 Bionic Cameras: main - 12 MP, front - 8 MP Communication: 4G Charging: Lighting Battery: 2,000 mAh Price: approximately $ 400 Release Date: March 2020 Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Redmi 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro - Key specifications revealed, sneak peek on design

It's no secret that Xiaomi updates their smartphone line up often. However, this is not about updating the software, but about releasing fresh models in various lines. This is especially true for budget areas: Redmi A, Redmi, Redmi Note, etc. So today we will hear in the news about what will be the future available gadgets: Redmi 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro. Despite the fact that a little time has passed since the release of Redmi 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro, today there will be no empty talk about its rumoured characteristics, but quite the real data. Naturally, everything can still change before the official release of gadgets, but given past experience, it is quite unlikely to see big difference.Redmi 9 - Preview and FeaturesLet's start with the younger and more affordable model - Redmi 9. If you noticed recently, the processor manufacturer, Mediatek, has become increasingly visible in the market, and more of its chips are getting into new gadgets. Apparently, the company managed to find the middle ground, which Qualcomm has occupied for long. The Mediatek Helio G90T is very confident in the Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphone and users are very pleased with its capabilities.According to the latest information, Redmi 9 will also receive a Mediatek chip, only already Helio G70. It is an eight-core processor with powerful Cortex-A75 cores and energy-efficient Cortex-A55. It also has a Mali-G52 MC2 video accelerator and supports the LPDDR4 memory standard. Built according to the standards of 12nm process technology, it can easily cope with camera modules with a resolution of 48 MP. Overall, the Helio G70 is somewhere in between somewhere between the Snapdragon 665 and the Snapdragon 710.The era of compact gadgets has long passed - Redmi 9 will receive a large screen with a diagonal of 6.6 inches (although earlier big screen is owned by Redmi Note line). The smartphone is fitted with 4 GB of RAM and at least 64 GB of internal memory. The remaining specifications were not disclosed yet, but marketers will definitely insist that a 48 MP camera and a battery with a capacity of at least 4500 mAh be installed in the device. Estimated cost for Redmi 9 is about 115 dollars, expected to release spring of 2020.Redmi Note 9 Pro - Preview and FeaturesMuch less is known about this smartphone, more precisely, all leaks with regards to the gadget are less plausible when compared with Redmi 9. However, some understanding, the direction of the gadget is still clear - it will again be a gaming budget device not of a flagship, but rather of an average-budget level . The device should again become a favorite with an audience that does not like or cannot buy ultra-expensive smartphones, while getting the perfect balance of performance and price.The highlight of the smartphone is chip from Qualcomm. Yes, despite the decent Helio G90T in Redmi Note 8 Pro and the generally positive dynamics regarding Mediatek, people still trust Qualcomm more. Therefore, the appearance of the Snapdragon 735 processor in Redmi Note 9 Pro will result good interest and excitement around the new product. And the smartphone is predicted to support 5G networks so that you understand the seriousness of intentions.The interesting part: the appearance of the Haptic Engine vibration motor (improved vibration feedback), the presence of four cameras on the back, the location of the front camera in the hole in the display. The device is equipped with a 6.57 ”AMOLED display with virtually no frames, as well as a below display fingerprint scanner. The Sony IMX686 64 MP solution should be the main photomodule in the device. The battery capacity will be 4500 - 5000 mAh with support for fast charging at 30 watts.The smartphone may also go on sale in the spring, and its minimum price tag in China is estimated $215, which is extremely friendly!

Samsung 2020 flagship review: Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra

As you already know, on February 11, South Korean company Samsung will hold its annual Galaxy Unpacked event. The presentation will be held in San Francisco. We have already seen many renderings of the new flagships and even know their names. By the way, if you don’t know yet, the series will be called Galaxy S20. Just the other day, the full technical specifications of smartphones appeared online, which were merged by a very respected insider, so we are ready to offer you a preliminary review of the flagships from Samsung 2020. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra - design The South Korean company will show new smartphones in a completely predictable design. At the end of 2019, Samsung announced a new smartphone, which clearly opened a new round in the design idea of ​​the company. Naturally, the new flagship trio will only support such a format so that it becomes more popular and in demand among buyers. New flagships will go on sale in a glass case with a metal frame - it will be in all three models. The only difference is that a premium case will be delivered along with the Ultra model. The main design features: the front camera in the form of a small dot, the main cameras in the form of "dominoes" in the manner of the latest iPhones. Do smartphones look cool? Yes, of course, such an appearance catches. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra - screen The quality of the screens is a feature of Samsung. All smartphones will have different diagonal displays: Galaxy S20 - 6.2 inches, Galaxy S20 + -6.7 inches, Galaxy S20 Ultra - 6.9 inches. The type of matrix is ​​predictable - Super Amoled. The resolution is 2K, however, the Ultra model will have one advantage - the screen will support 120 Hz. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra - performance Top-end Samsung smartphones have never had performance problems, so in 2020 the company will not have them either. You will probably be surprised, however, all smartphones of the company will have approximately the same performance. In any case, an insider writes about this. All three models will receive 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of user memory. The Snapdragon 865 processor, which should be exclusive to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra, will be directly responsible for the speed of work. Also, smartphones will be sold based on a proprietary processor - Exynos 9990. It is too early to talk about any specific results in Antutu's synthetic tests. Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 +, Galaxy S20 Ultra - cameras Cameras are the most important differences between flagship smartphones.

CES 2020 in Las Vegas - the most interesting and significant news in the world of electronics

The new year 2020 began already with the familiar event of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Many brands brought their breakthrough products to the exhibition, but not all gadgets were really interesting. Some companies have only increased the power of certain components in their devices, while others have shown something incredible, or at least new and interesting. In today's article, we have collected all the coolest gadgets and concepts presented at CES 2020, so you definitely won't get bored with us! Dell Duet and Ori - the concept of laptops of the future In 2019, we were simply struck by folding smartphones, more precisely smartphones with flexible displays that can be safely folded in half. As it turned out, such (matrixes bent by 180 degrees) are interesting not only to manufacturers of smartphones, but also laptops. Dell was the pioneer in folding notebooks. At CES 2020, they showed off two brand new laptops: Concept Ori and Concept Duet. The first (Ori) offers just one continuous display in a laptop, which folds in half. The diagonal of its flexible matrix was 13 inches and you can use the display in a laptop as you like (a solid display, differentiating the screen into zones, displaying various controls on different parts of the screen, etc.) The second (Duet) already offers two separate displays, that is, one screen is in the usual place, and the second is located on the keyboard. You can also use such a solution as you like. Moreover, if you put a physical keyboard specially designed by Dell on the lower display, the screen will mimic the surface of the touchpad with two interactive windows on the sides. Both displays in the Concept Duet offer 13.4 inches. A very unusual solution and as for a laptop of the future - very worthy! Alienware Concept UFO - Nintendo Switch-Style Computer We are all used to the fact that computers are either desktop machines with a huge system unit or laptops. However, Alienware showed an unusual Nintendo Switch-style PC and called it Concept UFO. Details of the PC have not been disclosed, but it is known that it works under Windows 10, inside it is the latest generation AMD Ryzen processor, and the screen diagonal is 8 inches. There are two detachable controllers in the assortment, and Concept UFO can also be connected to an external display. Alienware Concept UFO offers launch games Steam, Origin, Epic Games and others, located in the Alienware software store. Samsung Q950TS - TV with a quantum processor and frameless 8K-display Framelessness has captured the world - manufacturers are trying to free themselves from the shackles of the frames literally everywhere. So in the new Samsung TV, there are no frames, as such, because the matrix itself takes up to 99% of the front surface! If this is not enough for you, then know that the thickness of the TV itself does not exceed 15 mm. The TV has a quantum processor with AI, plus the TV control interface itself is designed to increase the resolution of the input image to 8K, whether it’s YouTube, streaming, or even a signal from a TV antenna. Samsung’s TV is also equipped with Object Tracking Sound Plus sound technology with 5.1 channel mode. Panasonic virtual reality glasses - the first with support for HDR and UHD Panasonic's new VR glasses at CES 2020 are the first in the world to support ultra-high definition images with UHD and HDR resolution. The glasses are endowed with two OLED screens and Panasonic's audio-visual developments. The uniqueness of VR glasses is that they give a picture without the effect of a lattice, and they also have no problems with image distortion due to the use of a super-compact module. Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR - the concept car of the future, inspired by the movie Universe Avatar The car of the future from Mercedes-Benz is nothing more than the embodiment of the idea of ​​combining man, car and nature in a new way. Most importantly, unlike most concept cars, this car drives, and it actually does it on its own. The driver can interact with the car using digital neurons - there are no pedals and steering wheel in the electric car! The car projects onto the driver’s hand the controls using an advanced gesture system and is controlled by an electric car. In addition to control, such a connection between the driver and the car is also necessary to identify the owner of the car. Another feature of the electric car is that its wheels are not just round, but spherical. Due to the simultaneous rotation of the front and rear wheels, the turning radius of the car is very modest In general, if we summarize the tangent of the Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR, then this is a car that connects with its owner as a whole and understands it not even at a glance, but from half the time!  Please Subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on FB and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Choosing a good smartphone up to USD80 for use in 2020, we took into account several factors: modern appearance, good screen, LTE support, and a powerful battery. Having set such market requirements, we stumbled upon the Blackview A60 - a Chinese smartphone with a stylish drop-shaped cutout, a dual camera and a 4080 mAh battery. Yes, the Blackview A60 does not have a fingerprint scanner, yes, only 1 GB of RAM. However, all the performance flaws are compensated by the lightweight Android GO operating system. Need an ultra-budget smartphone? Pay attention to the Blackview A60. Smartphone up to USD160 - Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Buy - $ 145  Specifications: Colors: purple, blue, black, gray Screen: 6.3 inches, IPS-matrix, resolution - 2340 by 1080, aspect ratio 19.5: 9, 409 PPi Enclosure: metal + glass - IP52 protection Processor: eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset with a maximum frequency of up to 2.0 GHz GPU: Adreno 610 RAM: 3 GB, LPDDR4X User memory: 32GB Back camera: 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP Front camera: 13 MP NFC: there is Fingerprint scanner: yes, back OS: Android 9.0 + MIUI V10 Battery capacity: 4,000 mAh Dimensions: 75.3x158.3x8.35 mm Weight: 190 grams What modern smartphone rating will do without Xiaomi? Probably not. We saw ratings on the net where Xiaomi smartphones were the leaders in almost all price categories. Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is a truly modern and decent smartphone. The main feature that distinguishes it among thousands of smartphones from its highly competitive price category is the four sensors of the main camera. The main "star" is the main sensor at 48 MP. The remaining modules are responsible for wide-angle shooting, frame depth estimation, and macro photography. We cannot but pay attention to the powerful eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor. Excellent performance in games and applications is provided. In general, Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is a reliable option. You can take and not watch what goes on the smartphone market for the next 2-3 years.

Lenovo in 2019 released a lot of decent smartphones, but for some reason, many have passed a wide range of consumers - this is a big problem. One of the best is Lenovo Z6 Lite. This smartphone embodies the concept of “modern smartphone”: a large and high-quality FullHD screen - in place, a powerful and energy-efficient processor built on the 10-nm process technology - is available, three cameras with excellent color sensitivity, capable of delivering good shots even in low light - sign and get, do not want to overpay for all these chips - Lenovo does not mind. The only negative of this smartphone is the lack of an NFC module since Lenovo Z6 Lite was released purely for the Chinese market. If the contactless payment module is not important for you, then buying a Lenovo Z6 Lite is a great deal. Smartphone up to USD320 - Oppo Reno Z Buy - $ 319 Specifications: Colors: white and black Screen: 6.5 inches, Super Amoled matrix, resolution - 2400 by 1080, aspect ratio 19.5: 9, 405 PPi Case: metal + glass Processor: eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset with a maximum frequency of up to 2.2 GHz GPU: PowerVR GM9446 RAM: 8 GB, LPDDR4X User memory: 128GB Back camera: 48 + 8 + 2 + 2 MP Front camera: 16 MP NFC: there is Fingerprint scanner: yes, under the screen OS: Android 9.0 + ColorOS 6.1 Battery capacity: 4,000 mAh Dimensions: 75.8x161.8x8.67 mm Weight: 195 grams The smartphone was introduced in mid-2019 and only at the end of the 19th began to be actively sold.

Another gadget feature is a long life without an outlet. The phone supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. Oppo Reno Z charges up to 100% in just one hour. The new processor from MediaTek P90 is responsible for the speed of the phone: in terms of power, it can be compared with Snapdragon 845 - the flagship chip from Qualcomm, which Antutu tore in 2018. We will not even mention the nice design, high-quality screen, and stable firmware. Smartphone up to USD450 - OnePlus 7 Buy - $ 424  Specifications: Colors: red, gray Screen: 6.41 inches, Super Amoled matrix, resolution - 2340 by 1080, aspect ratio 19.5: 9, 402 PPi Case: metal + glass Processor: eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset with a maximum frequency of up to 2.84 GHz, GPU: Adreno 640 RAM: 8 GB, LPDDR4X User memory: 256GB Back camera: 48 + 5 MP Front camera: 16 MP NFC: there is Fingerprint scanner: yes, under the screen OS: Android 9.0 + Oxygen 9.0 Battery capacity: 3,700 mAh Dimensions: 74.8x157.7x8.2 mm Weight: 182 grams Probably everyone has heard about OnePlus smartphones.

The best OnePlus smartphone in terms of price/performance ratio is OnePlus 7.
