New Galaxy Note 10 Leaks, OnePlus 7 Pro Release Date, Samsung Fragile Galaxy Fold



[ad_1]

<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "

Looking back on seven days of news and world headlines from Android, this week's Android Circuit includes the Galaxy Note 10 fight against Galaxy S10, Note 10 Pro appears, embarrassing issues with Galaxy Fold, new details on OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, a review of the Nokia 9 PureView, the release date of Honor 20 is announced, and why the 5G will be a large and bulky battery killer.

The Android Circuit is here to remind you of some of the many things that happened around Android in the last week (and you can find the weekly summary of news from Apple here).

Galaxy S10 Losing the Fight Against Note 10

Each phone is replaced by a better phone – this is just a given with technology cycles and something that people who buy on the front line need to tackle. But with the Galaxy S10 family of devices, there is a growing sense that the S10 portfolio is the wrong side of a leap in technology, and its biggest rival will be Note 10. & nbsp;Forbes's Gordon Kelly has more:

When Samsung sold the Galaxy S10, just a few weeks before launching the next generation of RAM, storage and camera technology. The promises for this technology have been significant and now the first real-world benchmarking has broken and confirms the extent to which Galaxy S10 owners are missing out.

Under the microscope is the UFS 3.0 storage that has now been tested on its debut device, Galaxy Fold, from Ice Universe. Samsung said UFS 3.0 would be twice as fast as the two-year UFS 2.1 standard on the S10 line, and Ice's test proves that. While the Galaxy S10 Plus is at 792 MB / s and 193 MB / s for sequential reading and data recording, UFS 3.0 achieves 1478 MB / s and 383 MB / s. There are also tangible gains in readings and random writes.

Galaxy Note 10 Pro Details

The Galaxy Note 10's nearly seven-inch screen appears to be getting the nickname "Pro." Sitting next to Note 10e, Note 10 Pro will load more resources into the larger chassis. & Nbsp;Gordon Kelly takes (ahem) note& nbsp; resources and the brand:

The Samsung that protects the Pro name is smart. For years, Apple has rumored to launch an elite Pro iPhone range and recent reports suggest that 2019 may be the year. But now Apple, which is already dealing with the consequences of the confusing brand SE, Plus, Max, numbers and numerals, no longer have an easy way out, now Samsung launches its line Note before the new iPhones every year.

Samsung's Galaxy fold has a horrible problem

Prior to its retail launch, the Glaaxy Fold review units arrived with a select number of journalists. Unfortunately, the review units had several problems with the foldable screen. Dieter Bohn of The Verge picks up the story:

… You can see a small protrusion in the crease of my Galaxy Fold review unit. It's just enough to distort the screen a little and I can feel it under my finger. There is something pressing the screen on the hinge, right there on the fold. My best guess is that it's a piece of rubble, something harder than lint for sure. It may be something else, like the hinge itself of a faulty unit that is pressing the screen.

It seems that there are two missing areas … the protective layer being removed by those who think it is a screen protector, and a problem with the hinge assembly.

Samsung has collected this and other revision and provided a statement:

A limited number of Galaxy Fold's initial samples were provided to the media for review. We have received some reports on the primary display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the problem.

While nerds would expect some problems with first-generation technology, having the Galaxy Fold's primary feature fail so quickly in units that supposedly would have taken extra care and attention in them (being review units) is at best unexpected. Of course, the situation is underway and we will have more information about Forbes Tech in the coming days and weeks.

Release dates and charts for OnePlus

Geekerati has decided that the next OnePlus launch event will be on May 14, as observed earlier in the week:

Although the date remains unconfirmed, it is safe to assume that Taniyama-Shimura is in force here. The date is close enough to the OnePlus 6 release date of May 16, 2018. The six went on sale six days after the May 22 launch, so a suggested retail release on Monday May 20 does not seem out of place.

The question now is what the company based in Shenzhen will announce. It is more and more like the fact that we receive more than one device. The last clue comes from a third party case leak:

… The device renderers clarify several points. This smartphone includes the widely discussed features of the triple lens rear camera and a radical pop-up selfie camera that leaves the screen free of slots – but is clearly labeled as the OnePlus 7 Pro.

This means that the phablet-sized device with the curved glass screen will probably be the OnePlus 5G model. The extra volume will probably accommodate the larger 5G antenna and larger battery capacity.

But with three expected OnePlus 7 family models, this leaves us a gap to a "OnePlus 7" model with no suffix. Given the signals coming out of the geekerati, do I expect to see the design of the OnePlus 6T as the base of OnePlus 7 (or is it the OnePlus 6TT?), The new technology added to the 7 Pro, and the faster 5G circuits as an independent model released when operators launch the fastest networks.

Reviewing Nokia 9 First Impressions

With five lenses, the Nokia 9 PureView targets the photographer in all of us. But the compromise of the rear camera with penta lens damaged the rest of the phone AndroidOne? & Nbsp;I talked about my first impressions about the device earlier this week:

The Nokia 9 is for those looking for a modern camera of "photographers". All building blocks are there for a wonderful experience, but it is not a unified experience. I am looking to see what improvements are offered with the new firmware. They should address many of the issues reported with the camera software and user interface.

Review Honor 20 Ask you to prepare for four & nbsp;

The latest smartphone from Honor will be released May 21 in London. Given the continued occurrence of number four in marketing, there is an obvious inference about where the focus will be. & Nbsp;Cho Mu-Hyun reports:

The company sent invitations on Monday for the opening event, which contained the opening date of the "444 + 4x4x4 + (4 + 4) / 4 + 44/4" which amounts to 521 – the date of the show.

The event will unveil the latest model of the Honor 20 smartphone series.

The invitation also features footage from the London Bridge, and the extensive use of the number four may also be hinting at a four-camera setup for the back of the phone.

More on ZDNet.

And finally…

Just because you can buy 5G, should you? Ron Amadeo rewrites the old question about faster communications technology. Larger plugs, higher power demands and better antenna are just the first restrictions. 5G, at least in these first-generation handsets, will be great … physically large:

& nbsp; New network hardware is "New" precisely because this is the first time that it is small enough to fit inside a smartphone. Companies do not wait until they are well below the size requirements for a smartphone to ship a product; they design a new phone, the second new network hardware hardly fits. These 2019 devices are likely to be swollen with 5G hardware – the largest 5G hardware that will ever exist.
