Huawei Mate 10 Will Use Mobile Computing AI Platform Kirin 970!

The Kirin 970 is an 8-core CPU with a 12-core GPU. It can detect images very fast! Huawei did a benchmark image recognition test. The 970 could process 2,000 images per minute! Which is faster than what we have seen from other chips on the market.

It has 5.5 billion transistors. It also features a Neural Processing Unit (NPU). Huawei wants to combine Cloud AI with On-Device AI to provide a better phone experience. The 970 will be able to detect and analyse sensor data. And then send it to the cloud fast. Both of these things analysing things on a local level then send it to the cloud will create a great new era for Mobile AI.

Huawei Mate 10 is a new phone that will compete against Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8 and LG V30. It will be launched on October 16 in Munich. It’s expected to feature a display with little bezels and resolution of 2160×1080. 6GB or RAM and 64GB internal storage is expected. Also seems like it won’t get launched with latest Android 8.0 Oreo but that it will feature Android 7.1 Nougat. With EMUI skin on top.

There is a picture leaked that may be Huawei Mate 10. And it shows us that it doesn’t have any home button. The Huawei Mate 9 Pro has a home button and a fingerprint sensor built into that button. But I prefer the standard Huawei Mate 9 with fingerprint on the back below the camera. Just like LG G6 is having it. But I think Huawei has implemented it better because it goes in like a dimple so easier to find.

So we have speculations that Huawei Mate 10 may feature an on-screen fingerprint sensor. This is something we heard rumours about with new iPhone 8 but looks like new iPhone won’t feature any fingerprint sensor at all.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact a NEW Sony Phone!

So Sony has unveiled some new phones.

One of them is a new compact phone. An Xperia XZ1 Compact. Which of course is suppose to replace Sony Xperia X Compact. I have used the X Compact a lot and really enjoyed it. But I used it as my main hotspot for my home network a bit too long. Don’t do that! It will fry the battery.

So what is new in this one compared to X Compact? First of all XZ1 Compact is IP68 certified. So dust and water proof over 1.5 meter and 30 minutes. It’s running on Snapdragon 835 instead of Snapdragon 650. It has 4GB of RAM instead of 3GB. The camera is 19MP with a secondary 8MP front facing. The front facing camera has a wide angle lens for great group selfies! The X Compact had a 23MP rear camera so not sure if this new 19MP will be any better. But it probably will.

This new phone will also come with Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed. The GPU is upgraded from Adreno 510 to Adreno 540. And it’s running on an Octa-core setup instead of the Hexa-core setup X compact has. The battery at 2700mAh and the 4.6 display size stays the same. As well as in design it doesn’t look like any major changes.

The XZ1 Compact will come with no visible antenna lines. And it will have a glass fiber reinforced plastic back. It’s bigger brother Xperia XZ1 will have more metal and antenna lines. Another random thing with XZ1 Compact is how the top and bottom of the phone is a bit more rounded so it can’t stand up on it’s own. The phone still has large bezels as earlier Sony phones are famous for.

The XZ1 Compact has a S-Force front surround stereo speaker. As well as Bluetooth 5.0 with support for LDAC and AptX-HD. Will it be worth to upgrade from X Compact? I don’t think so. It’s not that much new. But for newcomers looking for a Compact smaller phone this might be it.

Xiaomi Mi Max Size Comparison Next To Other Phones!

Is the Xiaomi Mi Max too big? It has a 6.4″ display so I put it next to some of my other phones to compare it’s size! First photo is next to Samsung Galaxy S8, next vs. Nexus 6P, then we have LG G6, iPhone 7 Plus and a BlackBerry Priv photo! You can see that the Priv phone is the only one that is taller than the Mi Max but that’s only when the QWERTY slider keyboard is out!

Samsung Galaxy S9 – My Dream Specs!

In the new Samsung Galaxy S9 there are a few things that I would love to see. The first thing is a removable back. This was something that Samsung was famous for having when it’s competitors didn’t have it. It provided an easy way to replace a bad battery. Or replace a cover that got destroyed. I think Samsung removed this option because they probably make more money if they don’t allow a removable back. A removable back doesn’t have to feel cheap. Here is an idea.

Why not make a removable back with a glass material? I have never seen that be done before. If the glass back breaks then they should have an option to get a new one for just €50. In that way you both get premium feeling and something other competitors doesn’t have. If you cannot remove the battery it becomes problematic if the battery get’s faulty. Then your whole €800 phone is damaged and needs to be replaced. Just as we saw with the Note 7 fiasco.

Next thing I want to see is an option to remove all apps you don’t wanna have on the phone. Pre-installed bloatware that makes your phone slower. Some apps you cannot remove in the current phones only “disable”. Which is weird. It’s my phone isn’t it? Then I should be able to decide what kind of apps I want to have on it. Instead of being forced to have certain apps take up space. Apps that I may never use.

I also want to see speakers on the front side. But slim at the top and bottom to provide clear stereo sound. The way the speaker is located on the Samsung Galaxy S8 makes it so sometimes you have your hand where the speaker is. And it blocks the sound. So the current place of speaker is bad. Samsung needs to move it to the front.

Then I want in Galaxy S9 to use software that makes it so all apps, photo and video takes up the full space on screen. Something that was a problem with Galaxy S8. Many apps doesn’t use the full display because of the weird aspect ratio so it can look weird on the sides of the phone. Samsung in S9 need also test their UI to make sure it runs smooth before they launch the device. I want to see a fast boot option as we have seen on HTC devices in the past. Where it can boot up the phone in a few seconds.

There should be software installed that prevents the phone from overheating. There should be a built in fan that kicks in and prevents the device from getting too hot. I want Samsung in S9 to place the fingerprint locator below the camera so it’s easier to reach it. Samsung also needs to remove the Bixby button and let you be able to disable it on the phone if you don’t want it.

I want to see Snapdragon 845 with 4,500mAh battery and Android 8.0 Oreo with 128GB of pre-installed memory and with 8GB of RAM. I want to see an option to be able to use 4 apps at the same time and have it work with all apps. And the display should be edge to edge on the sides not curved. But have an S9 Plus curved model available. Charging full battery I want an option to get it done within 45 minutes. The current Galaxy S8 takes 1,5 hour now for me to fully charge. I also want to see the device get a global launch in February 2018.

Will we see this kind of specs in Galaxy S9? Probably not but maybe in Galaxy S10. As we have been seeing and know about companies they are usually mostly interested in pleasing their investors before consumers. Which means to not produce the best phone but to produce the phone that will sell the most amount of units and make the most amount of money. Apple is doing the same thing.

Which means many features we could have seen years ago but many people don’t care about the best specs. So there is no profit in releasing too much good stuff too early. So phone companies split it out in years. But hopefully now with more China phone competition on the market we could start to see some interesting innovation again from the large companies.

There are many new phone companies which pushes the price down constantly. These days if you order from China or Spain you can get a quality Android phone for just €140. This didn’t exist a couple of years ago. At the same time we are seeing the big phone companies Apple and Samsung constantly push up the price on their flagship devices. Both OLED iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be priced at $1,000. Which is a price increase from what we have seen earlier years.

It looks like we are getting a new segment of phones. First Low-end: €150, Mid-end: €350, High-End: €600, Super Duper Premium for people with money: €950.

Of course this will frustrate many users who will feel they have an outdated device just because there is a new device available. Many people buy their phone on contract so they are locked in for 2 years. If you want to stay ahead in the phone race then I suggest you just by your phones unlocked so you then can sell it fast if you want a never variant.
