[Exclusive] Here’s Our Closest Look At the LG Q9, Press Renders Leaked In Full

South Korean electronics giant LG is soon expected to launch a new Q-series Android smartphone, dubbed Q9. Ahead of its global debut, we have accessed a few press renders of the Q9, showing off its notched display and slick metallic finish.

The LG Q9 press renders reveal a design that looks strikingly similar to the G7 Fit announced in August. Similar to the LG G7 Fit, the Q9 appears to have a metal frame in the middle. Similar to the LG Q7, it looks like the Q9 will have a metal back. On the front, we see a notch with the selfie camera, proximity sensor, and the earpiece. The bottom chin is also nearly identical in size to the one on the G7 Fit. At the bottom, we see a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and a speaker grill. There is a good chance that the LG Q9 will offer MIL-STD-810G compliance and an IP68 rating for dust as well as water resistance.

LG Q9 is expected to sport an IPS LCD display measuring 6.1-inches with Full HD+ resolution. Previous leaks have suggested the smartphone could feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Further expansion up to 2TB will be supported, all thanks to a microSD card slot.  Connectivity-wise, we expect the upcoming Q-series smartphone from LG to support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and 4G VoLTE. As for imaging hardware, LG Q9 is likely to come with a dual-lens setup at the rear, although there is no word yet on the resolution of the two camera sensors. For selfies, the LG Q9 will have a single selfie camera on the front. In the battery life department, LG Q9 is rumored to be fueled by a 3550mAh cell with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. Moving on to software, LG Q9 is said to run on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with LG’s custom Android user-interface layer running on top. If the rumors are indeed accurate and the Q9 does launch with Android Oreo out of the box, we expect an update to Android 9.0 Pie to be released for the smartphone sometime early next year.

[Exclusive] Moto G7 Plus Render Image Envisions the Waterdrop-style Design, Glass Back

After bringing you the first exclusive press render of the Moto G7, we have now got our hands on an exclusive press render of the Moto G7 Plus. Just as expected, the press render confirms the Moto G7 Plus will be identical to the standard Moto G7 in terms of design.

The Moto G7 Plus comes with a waterdrop notch at the top, which is certainly not as ugly as the wide notches seen on many smartphones released this year. Thanks to the notch, we expect the Moto G7 Plus to be a significant improvement over the Moto G6 Plus as far as the screen-to-body ratio is concerned. That said, the bottom chin isn’t the thinnest that we have seen so far. Just like the front, the Moto G7 Plus appears to be identical to the standard Moto G7 from the back as well. The smartphone comes with a 3D curved glass back and rounded corners. We see a round camera module at the rear, with a dual-camera setup and a dual-LED flash module. Placed below the circular camera module is the Motorola batwing logo. Since we do not see any physical home button on the front panel, it looks like the fingerprint sensor will be embedded in the Motorola logo.

Going by the latest leaks, the Moto G7 Plus is expected to sport a 6.4-inch sized display with Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The rest of the smartphone’s hardware specifications remain a mystery at this point. Since the standard Moto G7 is going to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, we can expect the Moto G7 Plus to feature a newer Snapdragon 670 or 710 chipset under the hood. In the memory department, Moto G7 Plus will likely be available with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In terms of optics, we expect to see a similar 16MP + 5MP dual-camera setup at the rear with support for 4K video recording. In terms of battery life, the Moto G7 Plus will perhaps be even more impressive than the standard Moto G7, which is rumored to be fueled by a 3500mAh cell. The Moto G7 Plus is expected to launch alongside the Moto G7 with Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box sometime early next year.

[Exclusive] Moto G7 Press Renders Surface With Waterdrop Notch, Dual Rear Cameras

Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility is soon expected to unveil its next-generation Moto G-series smartphone, the Moto G7. The smartphone was recently spotted on the FCC website, which suggests it may be made official sooner than expected. While the smartphone’s launch date is yet to be confirmed, we have got our hands on the first press render of the Moto G7, revealing a completely revamped design compared to the current Moto G-series smartphones.

As you can see in the press render above, Moto G7 will sport a teardrop notch at the top, which helps maximize the screen-to-body ratio. That said, the chin at the bottom is still a little too thick when compared to OPPO and Vivo smartphones featuring a similar notch design. On the back of the handset, we can see a dual-camera setup with two horizontally-stacked sensors and an LED flash module below them. Placed below the circular camera module is the Motorola batwing logo with the fingerprint sensor embedded inside. The press render also highlights the smartphone’s glass back with curved sides and rounded corners. While we cannot confirm it, a recent leak had suggested the Moto G7 might be the company’s first G-series smartphone to offer Qi wireless charging support.

The Moto G7 is rumored to feature a 6.0-inch display with Full HD+ resolution, a small upgrade compared to the 5.7-inch HD+ resolution display of the Moto G6. In terms of performance, however, the Moto G7 is tipped to be significantly more powerful than its predecessor, thanks to an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset. The octa-core processor could be coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. As for optics, the Moto G7 is rumored to include a 16MP main snapper and a 5MP secondary depth-sensing camera at the rear. On the front of the handset is expected to be a 12MP unit for selfies. When it comes to battery life, the current Moto G6 is not a particularly impressive smartphone, thanks to a 3000mAh capacity battery. Its successor, on the other hand, is said to pack a larger 3500mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. Since the Moto G7 is expected to be launched by the end of the year or early next year, it will probably be launched with the Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box.

[Exclusive] Oppo A7 Promotional Images Leaked Ahead of Launch in China on November 22

We have now accessed a few new OPPO A7 promotional images, which highlight the design as well as a few key features of the handset. Similar to the recent OPPO F-series and R-series smartphones, the A7 comes with a waterdrop notch at the top, which makes the handset look quite attractive. As can be seen in the images below, the OPPO A7 will be available in Green, Gold, and Rose Gold color options. All three color variants come with gold accents around the dual-camera setup and the fingerprint sensor. The smartphone will be running on the ColorOS 5.2 version out of the box, which comes with a few new features and a refreshed user-interface.


[Exclusive] Oppo A7 to Launch in China on November 22, Will be Priced at 1599 Yuan

Ahead of the smartphone’s impending launch, we have managed to get our hands on the smartphone’s complete spec sheet. The OPPO A7 will be a toned down version of the OPPO A7x which has some better specs compared to the former. The launch was expected on November 13 originally but we can now confirm the handset will be official on November 22.

As we recently reported, specs are exactly the same as previous leaks have suggested. The OPPO A7 features a 6.2-inch FullView Display with a waterdrop notch and a screen resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels. As per our report, there’s a 2.5D curved glass with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecting the display. There smartphone is powered by an octa-core 1.8GHz Snapdragon 450 SoC with an Adreno 506 GPU. The handset has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. Previous reports also suggested a 3GB + 32GB version accompanied by a MicroSD card slot for further expansion up to 256GB. A key selling point of the OPPO A7 will be its huge 4230mAh capacity battery, which should make it among the best devices in its class in terms of battery life.

In terms of photography, the OPPO A7 rocks a 13MP primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture along with a 2MP depth sensor on the rear. While a lone 16MP selfie shooter resides inside the waterdrop notch at the top of the display. The OPPO A7 will run Android 8.1 Oreo OS out of the box, with OPPO’s custom UX ColorOS 5.2 on top of it.

In terms of connectivity, the handset gets the standard Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and GPS with A-GPS, and GLONASS. As we pointed out earlier, the handset is probably a rebranded Realme 2 with the waterdrop notch being the main differentiating factor between the two smartphones.

The OPPO A7 comes in a variety of colour choices including Fresh Powder, Lake Light Green, and Amber Gold. The handset will be priced 1,599 Yuan in China, which translates to around INR 16,600 approximately.

[Exclusive] OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple Press Renders Leak: New Colour Treatment Similar To OnePlus 6 and 5T

A couple of days back a reputed leakster, Ishan Agarwal, spotted the new Thunder Purple variant of the device on the OnePlus India support page. Apparently, a drop-down menu that allows buyers to choose their OnePlus smartphone had a listing that clearly mentioned Thunder Purple colour variant of the OnePlus 6T smartphone.

Now we have the official-looking press renders of the OnePlus 6T in the new Thunder Purple colour option. Incidentally, this is not new for OnePlus. After the initial launches, the OnePlus 6 was later released in Silk White and Red editions. The same cosmetic treatment was done for the OnePlus 5T which later was available in a Star Wars Limited Edition variant.

The press renders apparently do a great job of highlighting the OnePlus 6T in the new color. Given the OnePlus history, it is quite likely the Thunder Purple could be one of several new color options the company could be discussing. Moreover, the company may also indulge in producing some limited edition of the OnePlus 6T bearing some exclusive brand or movie.

OnePlus will be taking the wraps off the OnePlus 6T at an event in New York City on October 29th. Thanks to a slew of leaks, pretty much all the key specifications of the smartphone have already been revealed. Less than a week before the smartphone’s global unveiling, we have managed to access its complete spec sheet, along with some promo material describing a few key features. While most of the information listed in the spec sheet was known already, it does reveal a few new details such as an upgraded front-facing camera.

OnePlus 6T Complete Spec Sheet Leaked Ahead of Launch Next Week

As confirmed by the multiple leaks in the past, the OnePlus 6T will sport a large 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Similar to the latest OPPO and Vivo mid-range smartphones, the OnePlus 6T will have a tiny waterdrop notch at the top, allowing for a screen-to-body ratio of 86%. Apart from boasting a bigger display than its predecessor, the OnePlus 6T will also be the company’s first smartphone to come with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 to protect the display. Another impressive feature of the OnePlus 6T will be the Screen Unlock technology. Thanks to an in-display fingerprint sensor, users can unlock the device quickly and easily.

[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”1″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]

Under the hood, OnePlus 6T will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor as the OnePlus 6. In the memory department, the smartphone will be available with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. As you would expect from a OnePlus smartphone, the 6T will not have a microSD card slot for further expansion. Moving on to imaging, the OnePlus 6T will come equipped with a 16MP + 20MP dual-camera setup at the rear. Similar to the OnePlus 6, both the 16MP primary and 20MP secondary sensors will be coupled with an f/1.7 aperture. The smartphone will also offer a wide range of useful camera features such as Quick Capture to snap photos instantly, Portrait Mode, and super slo-mo video recording in HD resolution. On the front of the handset will be a 20MP selfie camera, coupled with an f/1.7 aperture. Keeping the lights on will be a 3700mAh battery, a decent improvement in capacity compared to the 3300mAh cell fueling the OnePlus 6. Sadly, however, the OnePlus 6T will not include a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means users will need to use the USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter to connect wired headsets. As for physical dimensions, the upcoming flagship will measure 157.5 x 74.9 x 8.2mm and weigh in at 180 grams. Unsurprisingly, the OnePlus 6T will ship with the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box.

Going by recent leaks, the OnePlus 6T will be sold in the US by T-Mobile, making it the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor to be sold stateside. In addition to T-Mobile, the OnePlus 6T will also be sold by the manufacturer in unlocked form, which will be compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile networks. The smartphone has reportedly passed Verizon certification as well, which could mean that the unlocked model will support Verizon bands as well. In Europe, the OnePlus 6T is expected to be priced at 579 EUR for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
