After a brief appearance, Samsung has officially announced its latest Exynos 9810 chip that will power its upcoming flagships, the Galaxy S9/S9+. This will be based on Samsung’s second generation 10nm FinFET process which provides better performance with its 3rd generation custom CPU and has support for even faster gigabit LTE connectivity. The new Exynos chip also boasts advanced 3D facial recognition capabilities with a hint of AI.
Before the next Galaxy flagship smartphone is announced next year, Samsung has just revealed its upcoming Exynos flagship processor. It was among the 36 award-winning Samsung products under the CES 2018 Innovation Awards.
After the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the next flagship to look forward to is Huawei with its upcoming Mate 10 series. Like the current crop of flagship smartphones, it will feature an all screen display and Huawei believes it is the device worth waiting for.
With about a month away to its official unveiling, a clear photo of the Huawei Mate 10 has surfaced online thanks to a tip to @evleaks.
While everyone’s aboard the hype train for Apple‘s new iPhones, Huawei‘s big flagship Mate 10 announcement is also just around the corner. If you’re wondering why anyone should give a damn, it’s because the company’s device chief says that it would trump Apple’s handset.
Whether that ends up being true or not remains to be seen. However, thanks to the magic of 3D renders, we could have a clear look at what the Mate 10 will look like when it does launch.
The next step in Xiaomi‘s development of their mobile and smartphone business will lie in its own mobile processors. Codenamed ‘Pinecone’, after Xiaomi’s subsidiary of the same name, the company has confirmed that the new chip will be announced in Beijing on the 28th of February 2017.
Huawei has just unveiled its latest powerhouse with the new Kirin 960 processor. This would be powering their upcoming flagships which may include their new Mate 9.
As we enter the second half of the year, Qualcomm has updated its top-tier Snapdragon 820 family with another member. Following the success of its Snapdragon 820 processor, they have just introduced a newer Snapdragon 821 processor for flagship smartphones launching for the rest of the year.
From China to CES to now Malaysia, the Malaysian Huawei team has confirmed that we’ll be getting the much-anticipated Mate 8 on our shores come the 8th of March.
The largest smartphone in the Chinese manufacturer’s repertoire already has us getting goosebumps because it boasts one of the first current-gen chipsets of 2016 – all eight cores of HiSilicon Kirin goodness.
The drama ensues as the Korean manufacturer’s upcoming flagships Galaxy S7s are seen on the Indonesian certification agency equivalent to SIRIM in Malaysia. We already knew the wave of rumours were beginning since we’re halfway into January with MWC 2016 hot on the heels a month away.
Lo and behold, the Apple A9 chip might have just met its match. Some timely information, given that last week we talked about how the iPhone 6s Plus destroys every (currently available) smartphone out there on AnTutu – Android is back with a vengeance – or at least when this unknown Huawei device comes to light.
UPDATE: The Huawei Mate 8 is now official in Malaysia. Priced at RM2,099 (Standard) and RM2,399 (Premium).
Those at Las Vegas were lucky enough to see Huawei’s latest 6-inch phablet in the flesh at the company’s CES announcement; previously only released in its native China. And Western markets should be paying attention to the Mate 8 now since the Chinese manufacturer has already put its name out there with the Nexus 6P.
