The Huawei Mate 30 Pro

Huawei Mate 30 Pro

Huawei revealed its major H2 flagships, the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro . As expected, they arrived without Google services.

This marks a turning point for the company, and perhaps Android itself, as the second-biggest smartphone maker in the world launches phones without Apple or Google app store access. Here’s what we saw at yesterday’s event.

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro

Before talking about what the Mate 30 Pro is missing, let’s take a look at the hardware it delivers:

Display: 6.53-inch curved OLED (with notch), 2,400 x 1,176 resolution
Chip: Kirin 990
ROM: 128GB / 256GB
Rear cameras: 40MP f/1.6, 40MP f/1.8 ultra-wide, 8MP f/2.4 3x telephoto, 3D depth sensor
Front camera: 32MP, 3D depth sensor
Battery: 4,500mAh
OS: Android 10 (and EMUI 10)

  • These characteristics put the Mate 30 Pro squarely at the most premium end of the smartphone spectrum.
  • Looks-wise, you can’t miss it: it has a large, boxy body with a notch at the top and an unmissable circular camera cutout on the rear.
  • Speaking of cameras, the four rear sensors — including two huge 40MP sensors — will surely help put this among the best smartphones for camera quality (expect some critics to crown it the best).
  • It can also shoot ultra-slow motion at a ridiculous 7680fps at 720p.
  • But it lacks a headphone port. Boo.
  • Huawei showed off a Mate 30 Pro 5G model too, as well as a variant with a vegan leather rear.
  • The Mate 30 Pro will start at 1,099 Euros, the Mate 30 Pro 5G starts at 1,199 Euros, but Huawei didn’t talk release date or markets.
  • Here’s a hands-on video with the device from Android Authority (YouTube).
  • From a hardware standpoint, it looks like a beast. There’s just one problem…

The app situation

  • The Huawei Mate 30 series doesn’t support apps like YouTube, Maps, and Gmail, and it can’t run the Google Play Store.
  • This is a result of the ongoing trade ban the U.S. has imposed on Huawei. It isn’t of Huawei’s own volition.
  • Mate 30 owners will have to rely on Huawei’s marketplace called AppGallery if they want to download apps instead.
  • Little is known about this yet, but it won’t house anywhere near as many apps like Google Play, though WhatsApp and Instagram have been confirmed for it (BBC).
  • Huawei said there may be a way to sideload Google apps onto the phones in the future, but details are murky.
  • In a group interview, Huawei’s Richard Yu said Google services could potentially be rolled out to the Mate 30 “over one night,” should the trade ban be lifted.

What about the standard Mate 30?

  • The regular Mate 30 model is a lower-spec’d, less expensive version of the Pro model.
  • Oddly, it’s slightly bigger than the Mate 30 Pro overall, but also with slightly smaller battery capacity at 4,200mAh and a smaller notch.
  • Its camera setup isn’t as high performance, with lower resolution sensors on the front (24MP vs 32MP) and back (40MP + 16MP + 8MP vs 40MP + 40MP + 8MP), and no 3D face unlock.
  • But it does have a headphone port.
  • Otherwise, it’s very similar to the Pro model, with essentially the same resolution display, same chipset, and up to 8GB RAM. The Huawei Mate 30 starts at 799 Euros.
  • Will anybody buy these phones?
  • Huawei is in an unfortunate situation, being forced to launch a new phone range with what Western consumers will see as a crippling caveat.
  • The big question is whether the Mate 30 series does enough to justify the lack of Google Play and Google Services access. For me, that would be a no.
  • Huawei can’t spring to life an app store like Google Play, and the Google Play Services are far too important to overlook, despite great hardware.

It may not be a big deal for Huawei in China, where it doesn’t rely on Google services anyway, but for the Western world, I think most people will see it as a deal-breaker.

OnePlus 7T Launch Event Live Blog

 Image: OnePlus

OnePlus CEO Pete Lau posted the early look at the phone over on the OnePlus forum, and it looks pretty much as the leaks have promised, with a new circular rear camera module that features a triple-camera system. It also gives a good look at the new blue color gradient, which Lau describes as a “smooth matte surface with a brilliant metallic radiance.”

A separate leak from Twitter user Ishan Agarwal reports the exact specs for those three cameras: a 16MP 17mm ultra-wide-angle camera with a 117-degree field of vision; a 48MP 26mm wide-angle lens at f/1.6; and a 12MP 51mm telephoto lens at f/2.2 with 2x optical zoom. That’s in addition to the rumored Snapdragon 855+ processor and 90Hz display that OnePlus is expected to feature on the 7T.

Lau’s post doesn’t show off the front of the device, so we don’t have confirmation yet if there’s still some kind of notch or if OnePlus is offering a pop-up camera similar to the OnePlus 7 Pro to cut down on bezels. Presumably, we’ll find out more on September 26th, assuming Lau doesn’t post any more reveals in the coming days.

Foldable smartphone from Google has multiple pages

Google folding phone

The foldable smartphone is the subject of 2019. Many manufacturers are currently working on the development of this new type of telephone with a flexible display. This also ensures completely new designs, so the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, announced earlier this year, have a totally different appearance. Another leading manufacturer that has a folding phone in development is Google.

In May this year, Google revealed at the I / O Developer Conference that the company has since developed various prototypes of foldable displays. "We have been doing this for quite some time," he added. A new patent shows that the American search giant can sometimes opt for a totally new approach that we have seen to date.

Google foldable phone with book design

At the end of 2018, Google LLC filed a patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) for a 'foldable display device with multiple pages'. The patent was published on June 27, 2019, and describes a folding smartphone that folds open like a book.

The patented technology builds on a patent that was published earlier this year. At the time, the thin module layers, in particular, were described, this time the patent goes one step further. This is because the thin layers are implemented in such a way that the mobile device can be used as a book form, consisting of several pages that can be turned over. However, these pages do not consist of paper, they are foldable display panels.

To start with, the flexible screen is on the inside of the patented Google phone. It should be noted that the patent description leaves the room open to place the screen on the outside.

A special feature of this design is that the folding telephone has several flexible displays, which are implemented in such a way that they function as pages that you can scroll through. The OLED display pages are held together by a sort of book spine. The back is also used to process components, such as the battery, memory, processor, camera, etc.

Although there are five pages on the patent sketches, this can actually be any number. Both sides of the display panels (front and back) can be used to display content. In some cases, the content may continue to the next page, just like when reading a traditional book.

It is a very unique design that offers completely new applications compared to the folding telephones that we have encountered so far. Whether and with whom Google wants to release this foldable phone is as yet unknown.

Google does not produce any display panels itself. The first Google Pixel smartphones were designed in collaboration with HTC and LG. For the most recent model, Google Pixel 3, collaboration was sought with Foxconn.

Apple iPhone X Fold render leaked online

Apple has already made two iPhone updates this year (one planned, one angrily protested) but following the launch of radical folding smartphones by Samsung and Huawei, Apple’s more ambitious iPhone plans are now taking shape…

Earlier this week Apple revealed patents covering its plans for creating a folding iPhone. The illustrations show screen orientation, hinge design and structural integrity, and now Dutch industrial designer Roy Gilsing has fleshed them out.

Working with Foldable News, Gilsing has demonstrated how the application of Apple’s design aesthetic on this form factor has the potential to create a truly transformative device. Most notable for many with be the laptop-style keyboard integration, something which is similar to Nokia’s popular Communicator range which had a loyal following for over 10 years.

More interesting, however, is the fact this design suddenly looks very real

While Samsung’s much-anticipated Galaxy Fold was a disappointment to many, today Huawei blew audiences away with the Mate X - a folding smartphone which has a design very similar to Gilsing’s vision. Coincidentally, Apple is also expected to launch a punch hole iPhone design (something you can see on Gilsing’s main screen) next year..

Google Pixel 4 Leaked

Google Pixel 4 Leaked

Details of the Pixel 4 have been swirling around this week, so Google decided to just leak the design of its next phone via its official Twitter account, revealing the backplate and new camera module on the smartphone.

“Well, since there seems to be some interest, here you go! Wait ’til you see what it can do. #Pixel4,” the tweet from the company’s verified @MadeByGoogle account read.

Renders of the Pixel 4 had leaked this week via smartphone blog Pricebaba.

The back of the phone makes some big changes. Most noticeable is the now-square camera module with a pair of lenses, a flash module and a couple of other sensor modules. Also noteworthy is the apparent lack of a rear fingerprint reader, in contrast to past models. There’s not much else evident here; they didn’t post renders of the device’s front.

Google’s Pixel 3 release kind of cemented that Google doesn’t stake much of the Pixel line’s strengths on hardware specs, it’s all about what it can leverage machine learning software tricks to do within those bounds.

On that note, it’s worth noting that Google has been pretty late to the two-camera rear-module setup; at past events, the company has always justified this by suggesting that because of their software they can do more with one than most can do with two. This was clearly the case given the strengths of their cameras, but there are undoubtedly advantages to having dual cameras with different specs; it seems Google is now ready to take this plunge.

Samsung Galaxy A7 Has Three Rear Cameras & a 24-MP Selfie Camera

leaked photos of Samsung Galaxy A7

Well, this is interesting. A day after leaked photos gave us the first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy A7 phone and its triple rear camera, the company went out and announced the phone officially.
But that means Samsung has something else in stock for its Oct. 11 unveiling, doesn't it?
Let's go back to the Galaxy A7 first.

The phone is perhaps best described as a photography-oriented mid-ranger. It's got a 6-inch, 2,220x1,080 Super AMOLED screen, an unnamed octa-core processor (which will differ by market and mobile operator), 4/6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage (again, depending on market and operator), a 3,300mAh battery and Android 8.0.

The cameras are another story. On the back, it has a 24-megapixel, F1.7 camera accompanied with an 8-megapixel, F2.4 ultra-wide, 120-degree sensor, and a 5-megapixel, F2.2 depth sensor (for those portrait photos). On the front, it has a single, 24-megapixel, F2.0 shooter.

All of this camera tech will allow Galaxy A7 users to do some the tricks, like adjusting bokeh effect strength as you take the photo. As seen on the Galaxy S series of phones first, the A7's main sensor can combine four pixels into one to get better photos in low-light situations, and Samsung's intelligent Scene Optimizer is also on board.
samsung galaxy a7 It's available in good old pink.
It's available in good old pink.
Samsung Galaxy A7 is available in four colors: blue, black, gold and pink. It's coming to select European and Asian markets this fall; the price has not the.
Samsung says it will "celebrate the launch" of a "new member to the galaxy family" on October 11. Could it be the, A9 with four rear cameras? We'll have to wait a few more weeks and see.

The Mobile Airbag Prevents Phone From Damage

When your flagship phone kisses floor your heart stops, to ease your moment. A German engineering student named Philip Frenzel may have the solution to save everyone some time, money, and unneeded stress. He has created the mobile airbag, a case that senses when your phone is in free fall and releases metal prongs to protect it from damage.

The design comprises a thin protective case that uses sensors to deploy metal springs whilst free falling. the metal springs can then be reinserted into the case and reused. Frenzel’s invention recently won Germany's mechatronic prize for 2018. The Aalen university student plans to launch a Kickstarter for the project next month.


The story of the award-worthy bachelor thesis begins with a jacket casually thrown over a banister, a brand new smartphone in the jacket pocket, the free fall of the new smartphone a whole floor below and a "spider Screen".

 The expensive replacement of the fragmented display worked for a full two weeks, then everything was black again - and the iPhone just scrap. "The crash caused all the electronics to break down," Said in an interview. Philip Frenzel, who is currently completing his mechatronics master's degree at Aalen University. 

For the follower phone had a more stable protection ago, that much was certain. But the 25-year-old was not satisfied with his research at the time. "Packing the iPhone with its aesthetic design in a chunky outdoor shell is not fun," says Frenzel and laughs.

 And since it is well known that he was inventive and did not let go of the problem of splintered cell phone displays, he sat down at the local workbench in the basement, "to try hard on the brain".

 Meanwhile, four years later, the result of this effort has flowed into a prize-worthy bachelor thesis and applied for a patent.

HTC Is Quitting from Smartphone Market In India

HTC has been struggling a lot lately, with their sales dropping to an all-time low. India, which is the biggest market for smartphone manufacturers, has seen itself being largely dominated by Chinese giants such as Xiaomi, Honor, and OnePlus. As it result, it has prompted HTC to call it a day on the Indian smartphone market.

As reported by Economic TimesHTC is finally exiting the Indian market, following the rise of the Chinese brands in the subcontinent

HTC India’s top management, which includes country head Faisal Siddiqui, sales head Vijay Balachandran and product head R Nayyar, have all submitted their resignations, as stated by three senior executives in the company. The company has also asked its 70-80 member team to leave with a few exceptions such as chief financial officer Rajeev Tayal. It is also snapping all distribution agreements in the country after halting local manufacturing for almost a year now.
That being said, HTC isn’t demolishing the Indian business completely, but instead, will function as a small entity. “It plans to sell virtual reality devices online with Taiwan completely controlling Indian operation. This will be like an extremely small business.” Additionally, there are plans of the company entering the market as an online-only brand, which remains subject to the company being able to turnaround sales globally.
However, dissolving the company is not going to be that easy for them, since HTC has a lot of troubles headed their way. A lot of distributors planning to take legal action for non-payment of dues and not compensating for the stock in trade pipeline, with people stating that “HTC owes money in several crores”.

In a response to this, an HTC spokesperson said that they are aware of the potential dispute. “We are working with channel partners to ensure no disruption on business and service to our customers”
However, in an official statement, HTC has confirmed to Gadgets 360 that it has decided let go of a major chunk of its Indian workforce to achieve efficiency in operation. The company adds that ‘more than 10 employees’ will continue to overlook their Indian plans, while they realign resources against its key strategic initiatives.

And most importantly, no, it’s not exiting the market and will continue to sell its phones in India.

Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite Android One Phones Global Launch on July 24

Earlier this month, Xiaomi’s upcoming Android One smartphone, the Mi A2 was listed on a Polish e-commerce website. However, along with the Mi A2, the Polish retailer had also listed the Mi A2 Lite. Going by the specifications listed on the Polish website, it was quite clear that the Mi A2 Lite will simply be a rebranded Redmi 6 Pro with Android One software. This has now been confirmed officially as Xiaomi has released a new teaser that says Mi fans can look forward to not one but 2 new Android One smartphones at the global launch event in Spain

We can expect Xiaomi to hold separate launch events in countries like India soon after the global launch event in Spain.

Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite: Specifications, Features

The Xiaomi Mi A2 will be the global version of the Mi 6X, which made its debut in China in April this year. While the smartphone will run on stock Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box, it will be identical to the Mi 6X in terms of hardware specifications. The smartphone will come with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD Full-screen display featuring 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Powering Xiaomi’s second Android One smartphone will be a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor with an Adreno 512 GPU. In terms of memory, the Mi A2 is expected to available in multiple configurations with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
On the back of the smartphone will be a 12MP + 20MP dual-camera setup with AI scene detection and AI Portrait mode features.

Connectivity features will include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, 4G VoLTE, an IR blaster, and a USB Type-C port. The Android One smartphone will also have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Keeping the lights on will be a 3010mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, on the other hand, will be based on the Redmi 6 Pro. It will arrive with a 5.84-inch notched IPS display with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The company’s first notched Android One smartphone will run on Qualcomm’s popular Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with an Adreno 506 GPU. In terms of memory, the Mi A2 Lite is expected to be available in 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variants. In the camera department, Mi A2 will have a 12MP + 5MP dual-camera setup with the same AI-assisted features like the Mi A2, while on the front will be a 5MP unit for selfies and video calls. Connectivity-wise, the smartphone will have Wi-Fi 802.11 /a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, an IR blaster, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone will also come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a large 4000mAh capacity battery.
Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite: Expected Price in India

The Mi A2 is expected to arrive in India with a starting price of Rs.15,999 or slightly higher. On the other hand, the top-end configuration is expected to be priced closer to the Rs.20,000 mark. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is expected to be priced at somewhere around the Rs.12,000 mark for the base variant.


The Lite version is on sale on China's AliExpress in two variants - one with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage at $189.99 (approximately Rs. 13,000) and the other one with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage at $209.99 (roughly Rs. 14,400). The same model was spotted in Poland last week with a price of PLN 999 (roughly Rs. 18,600). This suggests that the official price of the Mi A2 Lite could be cheaper than speculated.

Huawei expected to launch a phone with four cameras in India on July 26, could be the Nova 3

Huawei is set to launch the Nova 3 in China on July 18, the company confirmed a couple of weeks ago. Ahead of the launch, Huawei has listed the Nova 3 on a Chinese retail website, revealing the complete specs of the phone. The price of the handset, however, is still a secret. Huawei will be revealing the price of the Nova 3 on July 18 in China. Soon after the China launch, Huawei is expected to launch the Nova 3 in the Indian market on July 26, reveals a company teaser.
Huawei has teased that the company will be launching a new device in India on July 26. The company, however, hasn't confirmed the name of the device. The teaser doesn't reveal any details about the upcoming device, apart from the fact that the phone will come with four cameras.
The teaser reads as follows -- "A phone that can make you do more. Cameras that can fourfold your view. Four-in-one is #Coming4You!" In the teaser, Huawei clearly mentions that the upcoming phone will sport four cameras, two on the rear panel and two on the front. The Huawei Nova 3 comes with four cameras, two cameras on the rear and two on the front.
No further hardware details about the upcoming Huawei phone has been confirmed by the company. The phone that will be launching on July 26 will be an Amazon exclusive product. This bit of information has been confirmed by both Huawei and Amazon via an official teaser.

Meanwhile, some reports also claim that, alongside the Nova 3, the Chinese smartphone maker will also launch another phone called the Nova 3i in India on the same day. However, in the teaser, Huawei talks about the launch of only "A phone" with four cameras, which hints at only the Nova 3.


The Huawei Nova 3 comes with a great specs sheet. The phone comes with some of the latest flagship features found in phones like OnePlus 6, Samsung Galaxy S9 and others. It comes with a 6.3-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It sports an LCD display and offers full HD+ resolution, meaning the viewing angles of the phone will be great.
