Let’s check out the top trending smartphones from this week.
Realme 5 has been leaked just ahead of launch sporting a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. A Geekbench listing has revealed that Realme 5 will come with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset. It’s the same chip which powers the upcoming Xiaomi mid-ranger, the third generation Mi A3 smartphone. As per some leaks, Realme 5 will be priced at Rs 8,999, the same price as Realme 3. This seems very uptight, but it will come at around 10,000 rupees.
Realme 5 will come with an HD+ water drop notched display, a new Qualcomm processor and a quad camera setup including a 16MP primary camera, an ultra wide-angle camera, a 4cm macro lens and a depth sensor.
Realme 5 Pro
Realme 5 Pro is rumoured to come with an AMOLED display, a pop-up selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Realme 5 Pro will come with quad camera setups. The high-resolution 48MP sensor will only come with Realme 5 Pro, while the other sensors including the 4cm macro and telephoto cameras are expected to remain standard to offer some top-notch smartphone camera experience.
The device may come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 or Snapdragon 710 or Snapdragon 712 chip. Realme 5 Pro will come at around Rs 15,000, or probably at the same price as newly launched Realme X.
Redmi Note 8
While responding to a query, Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the company will soon be launching a new smartphone under the Note series. While the company is just a few months into the Redmi Note 7 series, the company plans to cash in the success soon. The translated reply says that Redmi Note 8 is going to be much more stronger. Plus, it’s an open invitation to the competitors and the launch is just around the corner. No other details were shared, but the launch seems to be imminent. The company is now launching two Redmi smartphones in a year.
Redmi Note 7 arrived in early-January, and the next generation Redmi Note smartphone should be dropping soon. Among all the details, it is being speculated that the upcoming smartphone is going to be come with a 64MP camera sensor.
Xiaomi Mi A3
On top of all the news, Mi A3 is trending in the country, all set to launch on August 21. Xiaomi has already unveiled the third generation Mi A3 in Spain. The current Mi A3 stands to be the rebranded Mi CC9e. It features a 6.08-inch HD+ AMOLED display with a circular drop styled notch and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The handset comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor, full-glass body with gradient finish, triple camera system and will be powered by Snapdragon 665 SoC coupled with up to 4GB of RAM.
Mi A3 has a triple rear camera setup featuring a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with a 118-degree wide-angle 2-megapixel tertiary sensor. Upfront, Mi A3 features a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Motorola One Zoom
Motorola One Zoom has been leaked online, and it has been trending since then. It will come with a much-hyped rear quad-camera setup including a 48-megapixel sensor as its primary sensor. The leaked images show no fingerprint sensor at the back. So the Motorola One Zoom may come with an in-screen fingerprint sensor, which means the device will come with an AMOLED display. Also, the device has been teased with Amazon Alexa integration. The device will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 675.
The highlighting feature on Moto One Zoom is the four rear camera system. The quad-camera setup will have a primary 48-megapixel sensor, while two of these four cameras will have OIS with a hybrid zoom camera and a wide-angle lens.
OnePlus 7T Pro
The next OnePlus smartphone leaks have already started to pour in, and the company may launch its first 64MP camera sensor with OnePlus 7T Pro. The live images are already out, and the smartphone could be powered by the new Snapdragon 855 Plus chip. The leaked pictures show a similar build with an edge-to-edge notchless display and an in-display fingerprint sensor beneath it. With Realme having the 64MP sensor, it means the parent brand already has a deal, and they would be easily getting access to the Samsung 64MP camera sensor.
It’s just a leak, and you should take it with a pinch of salt. Though, OnePlus will definitely be adapting the latest 64MP camera technology, we don’t know when. It could be OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro or a smartphone next year.
Realme 64MP Camera Smartphone
Realme has been a frontrunner in the 64MP camera industry. Realme will probably be the first company to bring in a commercial 64MP camera smartphone. Realme unveiled its 64MP camera technology on August 8 at Delhi. While the name is not known yet, many renders hint at to the much-awaited Realme flagship, Realme X Pro. The company has fixed a launch date, and it will happen just before Diwali. The Realme 64MP smartphone will be unveiled here first in India before being taken to other global markets.
The Realme 64MP camera samples have already been shared with the “64MP AI Quad Camera” watermark confirming the four camera setup. The smartphone would use AI to add in the best of details, filters and adjust according to different lighting conditions.
