New Galaxy Note 10 Leak, Samsung's most recent problem, the extraordinary features of OnePlus 7

<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "

Looking back at seven days of Android news and headlines around the world, this week's Android Circuit includes specs of the Galaxy Note 10, the Galaxy Fold problem, the details of OnePlus 7, Nokia 9 vs a cat, the Pixel's economic name, Google's game plans, Xiaomi's Black Shark 2 game phone and the choice of Android browser in the EU.

Android Circuit is here to remind you of some of the many things that happened on Android in the last week (and you can find the weekly Apple news summary here).

More details on Galaxy Note 10

Of course, the Galaxy S10 focuses a lot on the fact that it is about to go big in the retail space, but many look beyond the flagship for note 10, expecting the real leap forward for Samsung in the form factor more wide. So what's exciting about the phablet coming out? Let's start with S-Pen:

This device will also have a new innovative Samsung S Pen in its holster. This device will use all the features provided with the Galaxy Note 9, in addition to bringing back Bluetooth, this time with a camera considered. It is unlikely that the long-term camera (and patented by Samsung) will be delivered this year, given the state of display technology, but you never know.

Creasing The Galaxy Fold

Meanwhile, one of the Galaxy concerns' biggest concerns has been highlighted with a closer look at a pre-release model. Concerns the area of ​​the screen where the phone is folded. It is quite obvious where the fold is due to the fold on the screen. Gordes Kelly of Forbes reports:

… a new interactive video has highlighted a problem with the upcoming Samsung retractable smartphone: a permanent fold runs along the center of the display.

In fact, the fold is so pronounced (the panel is plastic) that it is visually distracting for the duration of the practice. Moreover, it is not helped by a very protruding rear camera (something that Samsung has almost eliminated from its recent flagships), which makes the phone slightly bent when used on a flat surface.

Last details of OnePlus 7

Thanks to a leaked case, we can learn more about the upcoming OnePlus 7. Take the cases and line them up (ahem) with other casualties and familiar phones like Oppo F11 Pro; OnePlus 7 can be expected to have a triple lens camera and a pop-up selfie camera, as I explained earlier this week:

The first is the top central cutout for the main camera. It is certainly talker than the OnePlus 6T cases and there are two options here. The first is the return to a fingerprint sensor mounted rearward below the camera, which is possible, but the exhaust chimneys in front of the OnePlus unit push towards the reading of fingerprints in the display and facial recognition. The second (and most likely) is the addition of a third lens to the camera, increasing the prowess of the flagship OnePlus as a camera.

The second space is barely visible on the upper edge of the case. It aligns with the direct pop-up camera position facing down.

But I can take a picture of my cat

While the reviewers are waiting for the release software for the Nokia 9 PureView, many of them are considering how good the camera with penta lens is. And for many people, this means working with the Internet's favorite topic. A cat. Chris Davies gets to work:

The degree of detail is what attracts attention first. The close-up shots of mustaches and hair have a clarity and clarity that leaves the best of other smartphone cameras that seem blurry. Texture is one of those elements in photography that is difficult to define or describe, but the way the Nokia 9 PureView captures the dense velvet of my cat's nose has a quality that I would traditionally expect to have to reach for a dedicated camera – with a larger sensor – to reach.

More details on budget pixels

In line with the code name found in the Android source code, there is more evidence that Google's entry-level pixel smartphones will be known as Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL. Stephen Hall reports the name and some specifications:

Now we can confirm more specs on Pixel 3a via a reliable source. The device's 5.6-inch display is OLED (not LCD, as many have speculated) and has a resolution of 2220 × 1080 at 440 dpi. There's a Snapdragon 670 on board, with 4GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel wide-angle front shooter and a 12-megapixel rear shooter. The battery on the smallest Pixel 3a is 3,000 mAh.

Our source says that the camera emits a quality image identical to Pixel 3, but the camera app has worse performance. It is not yet clear how the 3rd XL differs from the 3rd.

Google goes after the players

Google has announced a new game streaming service. Stadia will be integrated into its other services (in particular alongside YouTube and gameplay videos) with "saved" gaming sessions in the cloud. Tom Warren reports:

Describing it as a platform for everyone, Pichai talked about Google's ambitions for streaming games on all types of devices. Stadia will send streaming games from the cloud to Chrome, Chromecast and Pixel browsers and will be launched at some point in 2019 in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe.

Our shark in the game waters

Staying with the games, Xiaomi has released the Black Shark 2 smartphone in China. This game-optimized handset is built around the Mi9 platform, but is giving a handful of quality to capture the attention of mobile players. Anton Shilov reports:

Based on the platform that powers Xiaomi's Mi9 smartphone, the Black Shark 2 laptop is said to be redesigned for games both indoors and out. The smartphone is equipped with a chassis that is not only designed for a comfortable grip, but is also compatible with the Gamepad 2.0 hardware add-on of the company that connects to the phone via Bluetooth and adds 12 buttons, a physical joystick and even a touchpad.

The Black Shark 2 has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080, an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, a brightness of 430 nits, a contrast ratio of 60,000: 1, strength feedback and a speed of Touchscreen polling at 240 Hz / 43.5 ms latency ensures maximum performance when the screen is used to control the game

And finally…

Following discussions with the European Commission, Google will offer new Android owners the option of which browsers and search engines will both be downloaded to their phones and configured as defaults:

After the Commission decision of July 2018, we modified the licensing model for the Google apps we create for use on Android phones, creating new separate licenses for Google Play, the Google Chrome browser and Google Search. In doing so, we have maintained the freedom for phone manufacturers to install any alternative app next to a Google app.

Now we will do even more to ensure that Android phone owners are aware of the wide selection of browsers and search engines available for download on their phones. This will require asking users of existing and new Android devices in Europe which browsers and search apps they would like to use.
