POCO F1 with Android Pie shows up on Geekbench

After the eventual official release of Android Pie, quite a few phone makers have started Android Pie beta tests for top-tier smartphones. This includes OnePlus, Huawei, Nokia and a few more. Now, it seems the newly released POCO F1 will soon be added to that list. The most affordable Snapdragon 845 phone was spotted on Geekbench today running Google’s latest OS.

The Geekbench scores of the POCO F1 with Android Pie were certainly lower than the ones tested with Android Oreo for many. This leads us to believe that the handset could be running unfinished software or a beta build right now. That’s likely since almost all OEMs have yet to introduce a stable version of Android Pie yet. However, this Geekbench listing gives us hope that the update is arriving soon.

 

The POCO F1 just went on open sale a day back although this was just for the 6GB +128GB variant in India. Despite being an irresistible deal, the POCO F1 isn’t without its shortcoming. It has faced some nagging hardware issues like screen bleeding and ghosting, some pretty annoying software bugs, some of which were fixed by the company.  It’s still an irresistible device.

Samsung unveils AKG N700NC, Y500 and Y100

Samsung Electronics have just unveiled the latest bunch of wireless headphones from the AKG stable. The AKG N700NC, Y500 and Y100 allow users to experience the balanced, studio quality sound that AKG are known for. Each pair of wireless headphones caters towards different types of users, so there’s something for everyone.

 

The AKG N700NC are a pair of over-the-ear headphones that come with adaptive Noise Cancelling. What this essentially means is that users can control the amount of noise gets into them. It’s useful if you’re with people or in a public place since you can hear your surroundings. It also means you can completely shut out noise when you want to. These last up to 20 hours on one charge.

 

The AKG Y500 on the other hand is a pair of on-ear headphones. These come with Multi-point Connectivity which is something like Apple’s pause and play. It automatically pauses content when the headphones are taken off, and resumes play automatically when placed back over the ears.

 

The Y100 is different from both its brethren in that it’s a pair of wireless earbuds. The Y100 comes with Ambient Aware, which is like a less robust version of noise canceling. It detects ambient noise and attempts to block it out, allowing you to enjoy your music.

 

The N700NC’s price starts at $349.95, which isn’t too far out of the ordinary for AKG headphones. The Y500 is more affordable but not exactly pocket friendly at $149.95. Finally, the Y100 is the most budget friendly option at $99.95. AKG is well known for their audio products and headphones, and we expect these to stand up to the AKG pedigree.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Images Leak Ahead Of October Launch

A week ago, Microsoft sent out invitations for a launch event for its upcoming Surface products. The event will take place in New York City on October 2.

 

The software giant mentioned “a moment of your time” in the invitation, and everyone expects the company to present updated version of the personal computer lines Surface Laptop, Surface Pro and Surface Studio.

 

Although until now we have no leaks of the design or the characteristics of the next Surface Pro and Surface Studio, the guys from MySmartPrice have taken pictures of the next Microsoft Surface Laptop 2.

 

In general, there is no major change in the overall design of the Surface Laptop 2 compared to its predecessors, but there is a new black variant instead of the gold one. Last year, the notebook was launched in Platinum Gray, Cobalt Blue, Burgundy and Golden Graphite, but only in some countries.

 

Most likely, the new laptop has the same 13.5-inch screen, aluminum frame, Alcantara fabric-covered keyboard, a large touch-pad and most of its ports are on the left side.

 

Most of the changes in the Surface Laptop 2 are internal. Most likely, the company will use Intel’s latest generation processors and faster memory.

Samsung to release a Snapdragon 845 powered Galaxy A soon

The mid-range segment of smartphones has seen in recent times a revolution. With the crescent upgrade in specs, this specific segment was divided into standard mid-range devices and premium mid-range smartphones. Samsung is a company that is greatly interested in expanding its offer for this segment, the company has recently confirmed that it will begin to pack its mid-range offerings with some flagship features.

 

According to an industry insider, the South-Korean firm is now preparing a Galaxy A smartphone with the Snapdragon 845 chipset. Of course, despite the choice of a top-tier processor, the company will price this smartphone below its current flagship offerings. If this is indeed the case, Samsung could be preparing this new powerful mid-range to compete directly with Apple’s iPhone XR.

 

Considering the current offer of Samsung flagships, it’s safe to assume that this upcoming Galaxy A device will feature a powerful double-camera setup, as well as a taller 18:9 AMOLED display, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of Storage and Water resistance. Of course, at the moment this is mere speculation. But if Samsung is really interested in upgrading the name of its mid-range smartphones, these specifications would be a good start.

 

For now, it’s unclear when Samsung will choose to debut this new Snapdragon 845 packed Galaxy A-branded smartphone. But we are curious to see how Samsung will name this, and how it will be priced. Samsung is already preparing a newer smartphone to be called Galaxy A9 Pro, would be perfect if this Snapdragon 845 come marketed as Galaxy A10.
