galaxy s9

Samsung is working hard to bring the benefits of being on Samsung. They are inventing something new every time to cater best to their customers. Similarly, Samsung has invented a new ISOCELL sensor which allows you to record a 1080p video at 480 frames per second.

Well, this is not the fastest but it is a great significant improvement from 240fps @ 720p to 480 fps. The fastest comes from Sony IMX400 sensor, which packs 3 layers on the camera sensor. There’s a new layer of memory which stores the data rather than storing it on the phone memory while clicking. It’s can record at 960 fps and is double the amount that Samsung has just achieved.

Well, Samsung has used Tetracell technology – small 0.9µm pixels are binned to improve sensitivity in low light. We expect this sensor to be present in the Samsung galaxy S9.

There are many reports that Samsung is emphasising on the Galaxy S9 camera. In order to make the camera more better, there’s nothing better than the home produced ISOCELL sensor which can record at the 480 frames per second and that too at 1080p.

Additionally, Samsung Galaxy S9 has already been leaked in rumors. As per them, it is going to carry Super Slow-Mo camera and Super Speed Dual Pixel. We are waiting for the device as it is coming very soon.

New Sony Xperia device supposedly with no headphone jack appears on FCC

Xperia Z5 update

A new Sony Xperia device has just spotted on FCC database with feeble details regarding its hardware components. Interestingly, certain schematic datas hints a lack of 3.5mm headphone jack on the device. If that proves to be true, then Sony would be joining Google as the Android OEM’s to ditch headphone jack in at least one of their devices.

The Xperia has hit the FCC with ID PY7-21831A and is supposed to be none other than an Xperia flagship. Also, the documents revealed an overall dimensions of 152.79 x 72.42 mm, with a 5.7-inch display of the device. There is a likely chance for Sony to adopt the trending 18:9 aspect ratio on the device.

Well, lack of dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack, of course, doesn’t mean that you can never experience audio via earphones/headphones. In fact, the USB Type-C port can serve multi-purpose through which the headphones can be connected. The only thing that matter here is, you need an extra Type-C to 3.5mm jack converter.

Redmi Note 5 might be launched next month in India

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus (3)

Xiaomi is growing popular as well as more demanding in India day by day. All because of their products which are priced effectively for what they offer. The most popular lineup for couple of years in India is the Redmi Note series. It’s been almost a year since Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 4. And now if rumours and speculations are true, the Chinese smartphone maker might announce the Redmi Note 5 next month in India.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus (MIUI 9)

In early December last year, Xiaomi launched Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in their home country China. The Redmi 5 Plus is rumoured to be the next Redmi Note which was even hinted by a reviewer in MIUI Forum while reviewing the device back in December. But, we can only take it as a grain of salt as the Redmi 5 Plus does not bring much changes when compared to Redmi Note 4.

Xiaomi Note 5 Rumors

According to latest rumours, Xiaomi is going to start the ‘Explorer Programme’ soon to test the new Redmi Note in India. In case you are not aware, Xiaomi has done the same for the previous generation of Redmi Note. The company would select a handful number of people from their Mi fan clubs across India to test the phone before the launch. Which clearly means the launch of new Redmi Note is too near than expected. Even, Xiaomi’s Product PR Clinton Jeff tweeted that next month is going to be lit. This confirms that Redmi Note 5 will be certainly launched next month.

Expectation: Redmi 5 Plus Specs

It will be really sad if Xiaomi launches Redmi 5 Plus as Redmi Note 5 in India. Because, the only difference between both the phones is the new  18:9 display which has now become a trend. Whereas the processor(Snapdragon 625) and storage configurations remain the same. But, the Redmi 5 Plus has an improved camera sensor which is the same sensor used in primary shooter of Mi A1. However, that does not make the Redmi 5 Plus a worthy successor to Redmi Note 5.

Thus, chances are less that Xiaomi might launch the Redmi 5 Plus as Redmi Note 5 in India. But, there are rumours that the device might come with upgraded processor in India like the previous two generations of Redmi Note (fingers crossed). What are your expectations for the upcoming Redmi Note 5? Let us know in the comment section below.
