Supposed OPPO K1 TENAA listed, design and specs leak online

A new device from OPPO with model numbers PBCM10 PBCM30 has passed TENAA today rumoured to be the Oppo K1. Following the clearance, we now have it’s design, specs and features listed on the Chinese regulator’s website. Take a look at that listing below.

 

As per the listing, the OPPO K1 features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with the resolutions of 2340 x 1080p. The CPU is listed simply as a 1.95GHz chipset and the device has 4GB of RAM with 128GB of onboard storage. Furthermore, the handset is mentioned running Android 8.1 Oreo. One of these versions has 6GB of RAM as well.

 

As for the camera department, there’s a dual rear setup of 16MP + 2MP and a 25MP sensor on the front of the phone. It has a 3,500mAh battery and the mentioned dimensions are – 158.3×75.5×7.4 (mm).

 

As you can see in the images, this OPPO K1 is likely sporting a water-drop notch on the front as the central position of the camera suggests. Also, the rear does not possess a fingerprint reader which means this model will probably have an on-screen reader for sure. Colours are Red, Blue, and Silver but you can see the gradient shade in the image quite clearly.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Notchless LCD Dispaly Appears Online

In recent times, there has been a lot of fuss regarding the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max 3. This smartphone has passed through FCC, TENAA and some of its features have been speculated. From previous reports, this phablet is scheduled to arrive in July and it is expected to continue the legacy of the Max lineup with a huge battery and large display. The screen of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 was surprisingly listed on AliExpress for $65.00 and from the appearance, this phablet will use a notchless full-screen design with an aspect ratio of 18:9. However, the forehead and the chin are not entirely thin.

 

According to its recent TENAA listing, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will be equipped with a 6.9-inch Full HD+ LCD screen with a display resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and it should be powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC clocking 1.8GHz coupled with 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM and multiple memory options (probably 32 GB/64GB/128GB). It is expected that this phablet will run on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box and its lights will be kept on by a 5400 mAh battery. Rumors have it that this device will sell for 1699  Yuan ($258).

 

It is worth mentioning that Lei Jun recently displayed the box of Xiaomi Mi Max 3 on Weibo. The size of the box is not small. It adopts the white minimalist style that Xiaomi currently focuses on, and has a large “3” on the outside.

 

Google показала бета-версию операционной системы Android P, которая должна выйти осенью 2018 года. Презентация прошла во время конференции Google I/O, также представители компании рассказали о системе изданию The Verge. 



Контроль за использованием смартфона 


В Android P появится панель с информацией об использовании устройства — в ней будет показано, сколько времени в день пользователь тратит на различные приложения, как много оповещений он получает и так далее. В Google объяснили, что это должно помочь избавиться от привычки постоянно держать телефон в руках, опасаясь что-то пропустить.
 
Android позволит устанавливать лимит на использование определённых приложений — после того, как он будет достигнут, значок сервиса станет чёрно-белым, а при попытке запустить сервис появится оповещение о том, что он на «паузе». Чтобы вновь им воспользоваться, нужно будет снять ограничение в панели с информацией об использовании — кнопка «снять с паузы» может появиться позднее, но пока Google хочет узнать, как пользователи отнесутся к новому сервису.
 
 
Кроме того, пользователь сможет установить время, предназначенное для сна, и в этот период весь интерфейс системы станет чёрно-белым, а телефон автоматически перейдёт в режим «не беспокоить». 

Если оповещения от определённого приложения часто отклоняются, то система предложит на время отключить их. Также появится функция Shush — если телефон лежит на столе экраном вверх, а пользователь перевернёт его экраном вниз, то автоматически включится режим «не беспокоить»


Управление жестами 

В Android P появится управление жестами, похожее на iPhone X. На главном экране вместо трёх кнопок останется только одна. Она будет использоваться для управления. Кнопка «назад» появится только в меню и приложениях.


При коротком свайпе вверх по кнопке «домой» появится список открытых приложений. По нему можно передвигаться свайпами вправо и влево. При длинном свайпе вверх откроется меню с приложениями. 

Общий список жестов с кнопкой «домой» на Android P: 

  • Нажатие — возвращение на главный экран. 
  • Долгое нажатие — запуск помощника Google Assistant. 
  • Короткий свайп вверх — переход к последним открытым приложениям. В них можно выделять текст, не заходя в само приложение. В этом режиме появляется список предлагаемых к запуску сервисов. 
  • Длинный свайп вверх — запуск списка приложенией. 
  • Свайп вправо — список недавно использованных приложений, раньше он запускался по отдельной кнопке. 
  • Кроме того, Android будет показывать кнопки поворота экрана, когда это уместно (например, при запуске видео на полный экран, когда ориентация экрана зафиксирована вертикально). При съёмке скриншотов можно будет рисовать прямо на них перед сохранением изображения. 


Адаптация под пользователя 

В Android P будут активнее использоваться системы машинного обучения, пообещали в Google. Одна из таких систем будет следить за использованием аккумулятора — например, адаптировать яркость и выключать приложения, которые вряд ли будут использоваться в ближайшее время. Для подстройки этих систем Google будет использовать данные о том, как пользователь регулирует яркость и пользуется приложениями. 

В списке приложений появятся «Действия» — функции, которые можно сразу запустить в разных приложениях. Google показывает их на основе данных о том, что пользователь делает чаще всего в течение дня и какие из сервисов подходят ему прямо сейчас.
 
 
Также в Android P появятся Slices — предложения функций в нужных приложениях. Например, когда пользователь ищет приложение Lyft, он сможет сразу вызвать машину по своему адресу, а не переходить в приложение и делать это вручную. 

В Google заметили, что разработчикам придётся дорабатывать свои приложения для «Действий» и Slices — это нужно для того, чтобы система не просто общалась с сервисом по API, а «понимала», какие действия можно выполнить. Подробности нужных доработок пока не опубликованы. 

Кроме того, Google анонсировала фреймворк MLKit, который позволит использовать машинное обучение в сервисы, а затем использовать его как напрямую на смартфонах Android и iOS, так и при действиях в облаке. 


Где доступна бета-версия Android P 

В Google пообещали, что Android P будет появляться на устройствах разных производителей намного быстрее, чем это происходило с предыдущими версиями. Для этого используется система Treble, которая появилась в Android Oreo и позволяет при обновлениях менять только нужные части системы, не затрагивая её целиком. 

The Verge отмечает, что даже Treble вряд ли позволит обновлять Android-устройства так же быстро, как iPhone, но может ускорить этот процесс. Однако в компании Essental сказали, что смогли выпустить бета-версию для своего смартфона на Oreo всего через неделю после того, как получили тестовую сборку P. 

Тестовая сборка очередной версии Android впервые будет опубликована не только для устройств от самой Google. Она будет выпущена для следующих смартфонов: 
  • Google Pixel 
  • Google Pixel 2 
  • Sony Xperia XZ2 
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S 
  • Nokia 7 Plus 
  • Oppo R15 Pro 
  • Vivo X21 
  • OnePlus 6 
  • Essential PH-1

Nokia 9 cases appear once again hinting a curved display

The Nokia 9 is expected to be one of the main attractions in the booth of Nokia at the upcoming MWC. Unsurprisingly, it is a flagship device which has been the staple of the rumour mill since last year. The most recent sighting of the device was in the hands of an HMD official. That was quite blurry and almost useless. The handset has already passed the FCC way back in December. Here we take a look at newfound cases of the handset.

 

As has so often been rumoured, the Nokia 9 is supposed to come with a curved display. That is indeed very rare in the flagship segment as Samsung currently rules the roost with the Galaxy S8. The cases clearly emphasize that design aspect of the phone as they have very small corners. The cases also have cutouts for a dual camera on the back of the device and for a fingerprint sensor. The Nokia 9 is also rumoured to come with dual selfie cameras.

 

As for the rumoured specs, we draw our information from its FCC listing. Nokia 9 sports a 5.5-inch OLED display sourced from LG, as per info. Under the hood, the Nokia 9 houses last year’s Snapdragon 835 chip which might be a letdown. The FCC listing showed Android Oreo on board the device backed by a 3,250mAh battery.

After the FCC listing, the Nokia 9 has been rumoured to launch many times but hasn’t yet gone public. We reckon it will surely break cover at the upcoming Mobile World Congress.

U.S. wireless carriers might have given Huawei and its flagship Mate 10 the coldshoulder, but Mate 9 owners can still rejoice in the goodness that is Android 8.0 Oreo.

 

Earlier today, Droid Life spotted that the cookie-branded update is rolling out to models MHA-L29 and MHA-L09. The former is the one sold in the U.S. through Best Buy and other retailers, though both models are the international variants.

 

As for what is new, Oreo introduces persistent notifications, adaptive icons, picture-in-picture mode, and plenty more. It is the most approachable Android version we have encountered and brings a little more polish to an operating system that has been in need of it for a little while.

 

The update also brings the January 2018 Android security patch and EMUI 8.0, the latest version of Huawei’s software skin. Combined with the hardware, EMUI 8.0 uses artificial intelligence to better manage performance and push lesser-used apps to the background. Additionally, the update brings a new floating navigation dock and a 3D panorama mode to the rear camera.

 

Finally, the update should bring Project Treble to the Mate 9. However, none of our devices have received the update yet, so we’re unable to confirm at this time. Huawei did tell Android Authority that Treble support would be added with this update, which should help the company fulfill its promise of monthly updates for higher-end phones.

 

If you have the Mate 9, let us know if you received the Android Oreo update and your experience with it in the comments below.
