Insider # 5.03: two news from Samsung, Huawei and Google prospects


Another piece of inside information is devoted to information about the developments of the South Korean company Samsung, as well as the smartphone of the Chinese vendor Huawei. Finally, I'll talk about Google's Pixel.

Samsung to Ditch Mobile Screen Cutouts Soon

Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup smartphones announced recently. All of them are equipped with cutouts for the front cameras. However, there was information that Samsung engineers want to completely remove the cutouts in the matrix of their mobile devices.

This information was obtained from the vice president of the firm, Jan Byung-Duc, during his interview with Yonhap. It follows from his words that the next generation of gadgets is likely to be equipped with subscreen selfie cameras. In this case, the areas of the screens above them, where the sensors will be located, will become "transparent".


Another interviewer said that the company's engineers are ready to equip the manufactured products with technology similar to LG's Crystal Sound. It makes it possible to use the display surface of a smartphone as a sound-conducting membrane. As a result, there is no need to place the speaker on the panels of such gadgets, and their frames become even thinner.

It is expected that pilot versions of devices created using this technology will appear within two years.

Galaxy A40 specifications are online

The announcement of the Samsung Galaxy A40 smartphone, which will be located in the middle price segment, is due soon. The Trendingleaks resource has allowed the publication of technical data for the novelty.

The leak suggests that the product will be equipped with a 5.9-inch screen with a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front camera and a fingerprint scanner. Its resolution will be 2340x1080 pixels with a pixel density of 439 ppi.

The main camera received three lenses. So far, only two resolutions are known - 16 (f / 1.7) and 5 (f / 2.2) megapixels. The selfie camera has 25 megapixels with f / 2.0 aperture. The hardware stuffing of the gadget is based on the Exynos 7904 processor, which has a clock frequency of 1.8 GHz. Together with it works 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in storage. The latter can be expanded via microSD cards.


The smartphone runs on Android 9.0 Pie platform. He received a 3.5 mm audio jack, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS and NFC. USB Type-C is placed at the bottom, at the bottom end. The battery is equipped with fast charging function and a capacity of 3100 mAh.

The device has small dimensions 144.3 x 69 x 7.9 mm, weight - 162 grams. According to the information received, its cost will be from $ 305, the performance will take place one of these days.

Huawei's dual-screen gadget

Huawei is interesting for its approach to various kinds of technologies. Regardless of their prospects and practical use, the specialists of this company can experiment with them for a long time.

For example, Huawei Mate S was equipped with Force Touch, but users did not show decent interest in it and the program disappeared.


Not so long ago, the Huawei Mate X was shown, a foldable smartphone, with architecture and data which is still being experimented with. At the same time, the company's intentions have become known, which is planning to produce a device with an additional screen on the rear panel. This is evidenced by the new patents that have been published on the resources of EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) and WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization).

Another site, LetsGoDigital, has published 3D models of a similar device using schematic drawings. It shows that almost half of the entire rear panel area is allocated for the second screen. There is a camera with a flash above it.


This idea is not new; other manufacturers have used it before. The likelihood of its use by Huawei in the future is available, but how accurately it is not yet clear.

Pixel 4 XL will be somewhat similar to Galaxy S10 Plus

Recently, insiders have found a device on the network that has been identified as the future Pixel 4 XL from Google. The presented diagrams show that the developers have abandoned the cutout in the center of the upper edge of the screen. It was replaced with a hole in the matrix for a double front-facing, like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.


The Pixel 4 and 4 XL will be announced no earlier than six months later. Therefore, there is a high probability of significant design changes to these devices. However, it is already known for sure that a more advanced device will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 or 8 GB of RAM.
