We will find out some details of its design, because tomorrow there will be an announcement of several products of the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi, of which Redmi is a part of the ecosystem.
iPhone 9 will be announced on April 15
One of the most successful and sought-after Apple products was the iPhone 9. It combined impressive performance and low cost.
Over the past several months, rumors have been circulating on the network about the imminent release of his successor. Recently it became known that they will become reality.
Yablochniki planned to announce the device in March, and start selling it in April this year. However, the coronavirus pandemic has made its own adjustments. The network said that the company will be launching the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus in June. However, the economic problems that have arisen amid the COVID-19 pandemic are dictating their own terms. The company had to push hard and change its development strategy.
Blogger John Prosser claims that a meeting was held last week to discuss the launch of a smartphone. The second briefing took place on April 1st. It was attended by the heads of the main services of the company. Based on its results, a specific date for the announcement of Apple iPhone 9 - April 15 was determined.
On this day, an online conference will be held, which will show the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus. It is possible that other products of the American manufacturer will be presented.
Pre-orders for these devices will be open on April 22 - a week later. On the same day, it is planned to start the first deliveries of new products.
The iPhone 9 line will be the reincarnation of the 2017 iPhone 8 series. The older model will receive a 5.5-inch LCD display, while the younger model will have a 4.7-inch display.
It is assumed that both modifications will have thick bezels, a Home button with Touch ID, but they will not have Face ID. The main cameras of the devices will also be different: two lenses will be installed in the Plus version. What sensors are used there has not been reliably established. Some insiders claim that these are the same as in the iPhone XR / XS, others say they are similar to the sensors of the iPhone 11.
It is known for sure that the new product will get the A13 Bionic chipset from the iPhone 11. Together with him, a 64 GB drive and 3 GB of RAM will be installed in the hardware part. There are rumors about the development of a modification with 128 GB of ROM.
The cost of the new iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus will be set within $ 399 - $ 499.
Snapdragon 865 Plus Specs Revealed
The Plus version of Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 865 platform has not yet been announced, and insiders have already learned its technical specifications. Well-known experts Max Weinbach and Ice Universe succeeded in this. They published the specifications of the processor and even named the first device to receive it.
Network whistleblowers claim that the eight-core chipset will be split into three clusters in a 4 x 1.8 GHz + 3 x 2.4 GHz + 1 x 3.1 GHz scheme. If so, the new device will be more powerful than its predecessor, clocked at 2.84 GHz.
Information about this was obtained from the Geekbench database, where the test results of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note20 + were published. Before that, it was assumed that the device will be equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor. After studying the recording code, it became clear that its chip showed a higher frequency.
It should be understood that the above specifications have not yet been confirmed by the Qualcomm developer. There is a possibility that one of the prototypes of the mobile platform was tested. Its key characteristics may change before the announcement. These changes are unlikely to be dramatic, but it is still worth the wait.
The day before the announcement, the design of the Redmi fitness tracker became known
On April 3, in honor of the tenth anniversary of Xiaomi, a large-scale presentation of the company's products will be held. Insiders say the firm is announcing 22 new items. Among them, there was a fitness tracker Redmi Band, which will be the first such product in the vendor's assortment.
Without waiting for the start of the event, the developer posted images of the device to the network.
It can be seen that it has a bracelet form factor. The gadget was equipped with a color display. There is a white strip at the bottom that can serve as a touch-back button. Future owners have the opportunity to choose watch faces.
There is no data on the technical equipment of the novelty yet. It is not clear whether the strap will be removed from her, as in the Mi Band from Xiaomi. It is clear that with the help of this product the user will be able to receive data about his physical activity and view the notifications that will be received on his smartphone.
