Insider # 2.03: news from the world of Redmi, LG and Qualcomm. Features of a gaming smartphone from Black Shark


The second issue of the spring insider news is dedicated to high-tech devices from Redmi, LG and Qualcomm. We'll also talk about the development of a water-cooled smartphone.

Note 7 Pro color and technical equipment

A week later, the Redmi Note 7 Pro smartphone will be announced in China. Its data is generally similar to the version without the Pro prefix, but there is information about an impending surprise. An image of its packaging has been posted online. It is highly likely to suggest that the device will have a gradient color.


Previously, the technical specifications of the Note 7 Pro were announced. All its hardware is commanded by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor based on eight cores with a clock speed of 2 GHz. To improve the graphics data, there is a GPU Adreno 612 chip. Both chipsets are assisted by 4 or 6 GB of RAM. Internal memory, depending on the equipment level, can be equal to 64 or 128 GB, expandable up to 256 GB.

The IPS display measures 6.3 inches diagonally and has a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels. The smartphone is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, functionality that identifies the user by face, a USB Type-C connector.


The device runs on Android 9.0 Pie with a proprietary MIUI 10 shell. It relies on a 48MP main camera with an additional 5MP sensor, a 13MP selfie camera.

The cost of a smartphone will start at $ 238.

New from LG

Fashion determines the main trends, including in the world of gadgets. Many companies are now preoccupied with developing bendable devices. But not all.

LG is not trying to master this line of business. At least that's what her leadership said. At the same time, according to one insider agency, LG is working on an expandable screen project for a mobile device.

Data on the new patent indicate that a case for such a gadget is being developed, consisting of several parts. Its back panel has multiple cutouts. When exposed to a certain segment of the novelty, the device begins to stretch. Its display area increases. Likewise, it reverts back to its original state.


This functionality is called the "extended display program". The proposed interface will be able to automatically adapt to different screen parameters. Most likely, the bet will be on multitasking.

Experts are wondering about the composition of the display material to allow this. After all, it must remain functional regardless of whether the screen is stretched or shrunk.

Qualcomm has tested the new processor

One of the respected insiders in his circle presented information that tells about the development of the entry-level QM125 processor by Qualcomm. It will supposedly target Android devices.

Information that soon appeared on the Geekbench benchmark fully confirms this data.


The processor has a clock frequency of 1.3 GHz. It scored 648 and 1815 points, respectively, in single-core and multi-core tests.

These are not the most outstanding figures, but they are shown by the chipset, which will work with 1/2 GB of RAM and 8/16 GB of internal memory. The emphasis is on low power consumption and low cost of the future model.

Liquid Cooling 3.0

Gaming devices are becoming more and more advanced, energy-intensive. This leads to a lot of heat generation and their cooling becomes one of the main problems in the development.

One of the Black Shark 2 gaming smartphones, powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor, will feature Liquid Cooling 3.0. This became known by posting this information to the Black Shark company account, which is registered in one of the Chinese social networks Weibo.

Presumably the new product will be named Black Shark Gaming Phone 2.


How the new cooling system will function is not yet known exactly. Most likely, large area heat pipes will be used. There is a variant of using an active system. Everything will be known within one to two months.
