We haven't heard many rumors about the upcoming flagship, until now. According to a new report, the Pixel 2 will feature a 5-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution which is the same as the first Pixel.

 

The phone should be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 and come with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage.

 

This report, as the earlier ones have stated, claims that the company decided to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack.

New leak confirms Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 design

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 11 hours, 48 mins ago

Samsung should announce the Galaxy Note8 this summer, and Evan Blass recently revealed some specs about the upcoming phone.

 

According to him, the Note8 will feature a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with 18:5:9 aspect ratio. It will come with an S Pen stylus and a dual rear camera setup. Blass reports that the phone won't be powered by Qualcomm's yet to be announced Snapdragon 836, but will instead feature Snapdragon 835, the same processor as the Galaxy S8. However, the device will come with 6GB of RAM. The Note8 is also expected to have a 3,300 mAh battery, which is less than what the Galaxy S8+ has, which seems odd.

There are some questions that are yet to be answered about the phone, the biggest one being - what is happening with the fingerprint sensor? When Samsung revealed the Galaxy S8 and S8+, one of the biggest downsides of the phone was the position of the fingerprint sensor, placed right next to the camera on the back of the phone. We know that Samsung has planned to embed the fingerprint sensor under the glass on the front of the device, but due to certain problems, they had to give up on the idea.

Vivo first with fingerprint sensor under mobile display

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 14 hours, 50 mins ago

Mobile World Congress 2017 is underway in Shanghai, China - with Vivo teasing their new fingerprint sensor technology that has been embedded under the display. An impressive trick that the world thought Apple would be first to market with.

 

 

The new 'Under Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution' is based on Qualcomm's technology, and was shown off on a prototype iteration of Vivo's Xplay 6 smartphone. Vivo told Engadget: "In Vivo's R&D plan, fingerprint scanning will not be carried out by an independent button or region. It will be realised more subtly under the screen, behind the metal shell, or even in the frame. Based on ultrasonic technology, the fingerprint recognition technology can be further expanded to realize user interaction, such as gesture recognition, security verification and other fields, which will greatly enhance user experience".

 

The technology does allow for the fingerprint sensor to be placed all over the display, but has been limited to the lower half of the display for the prototype. Secondly, the fingerprint sensor being available all over the display also drives up the cost significantly, according to Vivo.
