The mid-summer rarely brings a lot of high-profile announcements, but we got two premium products this week alone.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 slate and the Black Shark 2 Pro gaming smartphone officially began their journeys today.
Yet our most read story was not about a device, but a technology. Oppo’s new Waterfall display with nearly 90-degree curved panel promises to bring us yet another step closer to the all-screen future and clearly got you very excited. It looks awesome and we might get to see it as early as next year in one of Oppo’s flagship models.
We got plenty of leaks too – the Huawei Mate 30, the Nokia 9.1 PureView and the Pixel 4 duo all made headlines this week. Of course, the Galaxy Note10 was the most frequent visitor to our news section – the new Samsung flagship now just three days away from its official debut.
Oh, and global market researches point at Samsung as the top smartphone manufacturer for yet another quarter.
The vivo Z5 got unveiled in China offering pretty nice specs for the asking price, while MediaTek introduced its first two gaming chipsets – G90 and G90T. Preliminary benchmarks show that the chips are more powerful than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730, which is downright impressive given that MediaTek is aiming at the low-cost devices.
See you next week with the most exciting news from the mobile industry.
The curves on the side of the screen are 88 degrees, bringing the screen-to-body ratio even closer to 100%.
