Technology is always changing and it’s hard to keep up with everything. But no worries as this article is here to help you stay updated with the Tech Industry. In today’s article of Tech Today, we’ll be talking about Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, Vivo Nex 3 5G, OnePlus TV and more. So, without waiting anymore, let’s start reading together.
Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is finally launched
Samsung has now launched another 5G device. But you may ask what is new in that as they already have 5G devices in their line-up. Well, this time it’s not a flagship device which is getting the 5G treatment. Instead, it’s their premium mid-range A series which is getting the 5G treatment. Yes, Samsung has finally launched the Galaxy A90 5G.
Not only does this device come with 5G support, but it is also powered by the flagship processor – Snapdragon 855. Along with this, it has options of either having 6GB or 8GB RAM which makes it come even closer to the flagship devices. It’ll run on OneUI based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. The device also comes with an option to expand storage by using a microSD card up to 512GB. I wish more flagship devices came with this option.
On the front, the device has a huge 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch – or what Samsung calls as Infinity-U panel. Under the display, there’s a fingerprint sensor for better security. Also, that Infinity-U panel exists to carry a 32MP selfie camera. On the back, there’s a triple camera setup – 48MP Primary, 8MP Ultra-wide and a 5MP Depth sensor. Also, some camera features from the flagship devices have made their way into the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G like – Super Steady, Scene Optimizer, Flaw Detector and also the Live Focus Mode for the front facing camera. Also, it’s the first A-Series device to come with Samsung DeX support.
Powering all these will be a 4500 mAh battery which should be enough to last a full day of use. And if you run out of charge, the device has a support for 25W fast wired charging. No pricing details have been received till now, but it’ll be available in South Korea tomorrow. After that, it might even launch in other markets, but it cannot be confirmed which markets would be getting this device.
Vivo NEX 3 5G will launch on September 16
Vivo NEX 3 5G has been in the talks on the Internet since quite some time now. Well, it’s about to end soon as the Vivo NEX 3 5G will be launching on September 16 in Shanghai, China. During the launch, we’ll also get to know the price of the device as well as the difference of price between the 5G and the non-5G variant.
The Vivo NEX 3 5G is expected to have Snapdragon 855+, 8GB/12GB RAM, up to 512GB Internal Storage and a triple rear camera setup. That triple rear camera will sport one of the first 64MP cameras in the market alongside two 13MP sensors. The front camera will be a 16MP sensor which will be tucked inside the device and it would pop-up whenever required. Talking about the front, it is expected to have the waterfall display which means it has extreme curves on the screen. I guess we need to figure out how to hold our devices now.
OnePlus TV will sport 50W speakers
People are talking about this new TV which will offered by OnePlus since quite some time now. And it looks like they’ll continue to talk more, and their sound will reach more ears as well. Well, that’s because the OnePlus TV is going to come with massive 50W speakers with support of Dolby Atmos as well as Dolby Vision which is rarely seen. It won’t just be a single speaker. Instead, there will be a total of 8 speakers doing this job.
These speakers when paired with the goodness of 55-inch 4K QLED display should result in an amazing media viewing experience. Also, being powered by the Android TV OS and having a software support for at least three years should be an added bonus. This TV will be powered by a MediaTek MT5670 along with 3GB RAM which looks alright on paper. How well it performs in real world remains to be seen though.
It looks like the OnePlus TV will be a premium product, with not-so premium price. Well, I do not have any clue on the pricing of the TV, but it is expected to come in at a cheaper price than the competition. All this will be cleared and known once the OnePlus TV launches on September 26 at a launch event in India. It is also expected to launch the OnePlus 7 as well as the OnePlus 7 Pro on the same day.
Get free AKG Y500 headphones with selected Samsung Galaxy smartphones
Samsung packs in a pair of AKG earphones with their flagship devices. But they are wired pair of earphones – and not wireless. As good as it already was, some of the Samsung devices are getting a better deal. Samsung is currently offering a pair of AKG Y500 headphones when you buy one of the devices in the offer.
The devices which are currently included in this offer are Samsung Galaxy A50, A70, A80 and S10e. Note that this offer is applicable only in the UK region and through selected retailers. So, if you were already looking forward to getting one of these devices, this might be a great time to do so. Also, note that you still have about 15 days to take advantage of this offer. So, go ahead and grab the advantage while it still exists.
OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro gets treated with Android 10 Developer Preview 5
The software team at OnePlus is working hard at preparing Android 10 for your devices. And they’ve now revealed the progress they’ve made by releasing Android 10 Developer Preview 5 for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. This new update is based on Google’s Android 10 Beta 6.
This latest update improves the system functionality and stability. Also, the OnePlus’ full-screen gesture navigation has made its way to the Android 10 with this build. But as stable as it is, it’s not for day-to-day use, at least not for regular users. Hence, the name “Developer Preview” here. If it was already good for regular users, they would have released it as an official update to the OxygenOS. But, there’s a reason they haven’t.
Some of the known issues include incompatibility with certain apps – which also includes but not limited to Google Pay. Also, there are reports of system lag and stability issues from time to time. So, if you want stable user experience, you would be better off by staying away from this build.
