XL too in New York event
Google has gone on record and set out invitations for its hardware event to launch Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Since people have the phone and reviewed it in Russia and people left it apparenrly by accident in an Uber car, it is time to officially present it, good two months later.
Analysis: The key to success
There will be three trends that will play an important role in most phones scheduled to roll out in 2019. They will play the 5G card, use either drop notch or have a full view screen with s sliding cameras. This summary comes up from hundreds of meetings and talks we've had in the last few months with multiple companies, industry insiders and OEMs.
Comes with a big notch
Although the rumored launch date is set for October, it appears that Google already finished the Pixel 3 XL smartphone as it showed up in an unboxing video, in a retail box and all the accessories.
It was a silly idea
While some smartphone makers think that since Apple put a notch on its phones, they have to follow suit, Lenovo believes the whole thing is silly.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is the first phone outside Samsung Galaxy S9 / S9+ to use the Snapdragon 845 chip and in a Fudzilla test it did really well. Some people will want to get the the Mi6 successor, which might be imaginatively titled the Mi 7 and there is an indication that this might happen on May 23.
SD 845, in-display fingerprint, notch
Xiaomi's Mi7 is a Snapdragon 845 phone that will sell in millions. The latest leaked pictures have confirmed the notched display, in display fingerprint reader and the rear dual camera setup.
Destined as the codename implies
ZTE is one of these companies which try hard but don’t really achieve much in the smartphone area. It decided to codename a phone Iceberg and put two notches on the front of the phone.
8 GB and 256 GB storage
More details about the highly anticipated OnePlus 6 have been revealed. The Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage version has been confirmed.
In door navigation, new AI and camera API
2018 is all about a bezel less screen with a notch, at least for the high end Androids and iPhones. Google is aware of that and the Android P has improved support, with the notch in mind.
Oppo is about to launch its Oppo R15 and Oppo R15 Dream Mirror Edition phones and yes, they will have a notch. The company has already started taking pre-orders and has a website that reveals a lot, including the final design.
