OnePlus Z will be equipped with a Qualcomm processor
And the exact date of the announcement of the OnePlus Z smartphone is still unknown, but insiders have already shown interest in this model. First, they concluded that it would be referred to as the OnePlus 8 Lite, then got hold of the first images of the device.
Experts and experts have already expressed their opinion regarding the device. They believe that he will become the heir to OnePlus X. At first there was information that the device will be equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 5G processor. However, evidence has recently emerged that suggests otherwise.
German network informant Max J found a schematic image of a smartphone on the Internet and posted a screenshot of it on his Twitter page. The diagram inside the device shows the location of the processor, which is a 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 with support for fifth generation networks. This is evidenced by the corresponding inscription.
An insider claims that the Chinese manufacturer previously considered the option of using a MediaTek chipset in its new product.
However, later they decided to install a product of the more famous brand Qualcomm there.
One of the reasons for this decision, he considers the appearance of the first negative reviews from users and fans of this brand, after it was reported about the possible use of the MediaTek processor.
At the moment, it is known that OnePlus Z will be equipped with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a hole in the center for the front camera, a triple main camera with a 48 megapixel main sensor. It will also have a 4000 mAh battery with support for fast charging up to 30W.
It is assumed that the device will be presented in July this year.
Another Nokia push-button phone is expected to be released
Currently, Nokia is releasing two models of push-button phones: Nokia 150 and Nokia 130. There is information that the Finnish manufacturer wants to expand the range of similar products and start production of the Nokia 125.
This information was provided by network informant Roland Quandt. According to him, the novelty will cost no more than € 20. Now Nokia 150 costs € 26, and Nokia 130 at the start of sales cost customers € 19.
The insider did not provide any information about the technical equipment of the phone. He only suggested that it would be a device with a minimum set of functions. It is not yet clear whether it will be powered by the KaiOS mobile platform or not.
It is highly likely that the gadget will only be able to make calls and send text messages.
Nokia 125 release date is not yet known.
The new Samsung watch will receive a number of technical features
Several leaks have appeared on the network over the past few weeks. All of them were associated with one of Samsung's products: the branded smartwatch line Galaxy Watch, or Galaxy Watch Active.
In the documentary data of one of the Chinese regulators, insiders found information about two models equipped with the code numbers SM-R840 and SM-R850. This suggests that the manufacturer conceived the release of two versions of the device. The first will receive a case with a diameter of 40 and 44 millimeters, the second - 42 and 46 millimeters.
A number of other technical features of the novelty were found in the documents. It will have a storage capacity of 8 GB. This is double that of the model currently on sale. It also mentions the presence of a 330 mAh battery. This volume is almost 100 mAh more than the current counterpart.
