Samsung Galaxy M2 packing Exynos 7885 chipset goes through Geekbench

The first benchmark result of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy M series has surfaced in the Geekbench database. Going by the SM-M205F model name, this should be a “Samsung Galaxy M2”.

The phone is powered by an Exynos 7885 chipset, the same one used in the 2018 edition of some Galaxy A phones, including the recent Galaxy A7 (2018). The phone packed 3GB of RAM, which will likely be paired with 32GB storage (there should be a 64GB one, potentially with 4GB of RAM).

That’s a more powerful chipset than we expected out of the M-series, which takes over from the Galaxy On models, which were rebranded Galaxy J phones offered online only. The Galaxy J2 Core, for example, uses an Exynos 7570 chipset with a quad-core processor. Even the Galaxy J6+ had to settle for a Snapdragon 425 (also quad-core CPU).

The 7885 is a 14nm chip with two relatively fast Cortex-A73 cores and six A53 cores, plus a Mali-G71 GPU. Keep in mind that the Galaxy M2 is clearly aimed at the entry-level and this is a mid-range chip.


Realme U1 spotted in the wild with dual cameras

Realme is launching its next device, called Realme U1, and it is going to be the first smartphone with Helio P70 chipset. Up until now, we knew the selfie camera will be positioned in the waterdrop notch, but thanks to a photo in the wild, we also know how the back will look.

Unsurprisingly, it will follow the product design from Realme 2 and will come with a horizontal dual camera setup and a circular fingerprint scanner. The phone also has a neat Pink panel and hopefully, it will arrive with other fancy colors.

The person, holding the photo, is the company CEO Madhav Sheth. He is seen taking selfies after winning awards for Most Disruptive Brand of the Year and Best Smartphone of the Year (under INR20,000) with the Realme 2 Pro. The photo comes with a watermark, revealing the Realme U1 will rely heavily on AI, and it looks like you can set up your own name to appear on the image.

First Realme U1 selfie sample

Realme U1 is aiming to be “India’s Selfie Pro” and the company claims it will have “the most powerful selfie camera ever”. We are yet to see what sensor and what AI magic is hiding behind these monikers, we hope to see the 25 MP snapper that is seen in top-notch Oppo smartphones, including the Find X.


Samsung is working on a six-camera smartphone with 5G and a large 6.7-inch display

Today, a new report comes from The Wall Street Journal out of Seoul, claiming that Samsung is working on a “top-secret” device with 6 cameras: two in the front and four on the rear with the promise of “richer photos and better special perception”. It sounds like Samsung wants to go after the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which launched with three cameras and can shoot up to 5x hybrid zoom and macro shots up to 2.5cm close to the camera.

This alleged Samsung device is referred to the “Beyond X” which also is said to have 5G connectivity and come with a large 6.7-inch display, larger than the 6.4-inch display on the Galaxy Note9 and the purported one coming on the Galaxy S10+, also 6.4-inches. According to the report, Samsung has “saved” features for this device to differentiate itself from other offerings.

Alleged design of the Galaxy S10 and S10+

The same report further revealed information about the Samsung Galaxy S10, as well. For one, both the Galaxy S10 family (two or three models) is set to arrive in February, possibly for a mid-month event, along with the Beyond X. Considering that The MWC starts on February 25, should the timeframe be true, Samsung might be looking at another New York City launch event.

The other tidbit is that the Galaxy S10 could have reverse wireless charging like the Mate 20 Pro. We hope this means that Samsung will put even larger batteries into the upcoming Galaxy S10 duo. Finally, Samsung’s foldable smartphone could be called the “Galaxy Flex” or “Samsung Flex”, which is interesting considering LG used the name “Flex” in the LG G Flex series of phones with flexible displays. This was an interesting time for smartphones.

Does Samsung really need to build a phone with six cameras? No, but the trend apparently has become “how many more cameras can we fit into it?” so we wonder how many cameras it will take before phone makers start using larger sensors instead of multiple small sensors – if larger sensors ever do take off in smartphones.


Google Pixel 3 XL with Android Q pops up on Geekbench

Plenty of manufacturers have already started pushing Android Pie to their devices, with Google, of course, being the first. Android Pie was announced in June, with actual rollout happening in October and all eyes are now set on the Android Q development.

We still don’t know how the OS will be called, but it appears the Mountain View company is already working on the update. A Google Pixel 3 XL smartphone was listed on Geekbench with Android Q for an operating system, suggesting an alpha package is already being tested.

The rest of the listing, revealing Qualcomm chipset and 4 GB RAM is familiar stuff, the scores are normal as well.

Although it is way too early to know anything about Android Q, we know all devices with the OS out of the box will be Treble-compliant. Last week Google confirmed that devices shipped with Android Pie would be on the faster upgrade platform and the AOSP source code is fixed so developers can prepare in advance for any future operating system updates.


Google’s Digital Wellbeing app no longer in beta

One of the trends in smartphone software this year is the ability to track and manage time spent within apps or setting limits for time-wasters like social media. This is one of the better trends to come from 2018 with many phone makers offering a different take on this. With that said, Google’s Digital Wellbeing app is no longer in beta.

If you wanted to use the Digital Wellbeing app on the Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 3, you had to sign up for a beta using your Google account. This is no longer the case as the app is now officially stable and out of beta. It is now available to all Google Pixel devices and all devices running the vanilla-flavored Android One OS.

Source: Play Store

Unfortunately, the app is not available for non-Google devices running Android Pie, but perhaps down the line Google might offer support for these brands like OnePlus and Essential, who run near-stock Android skins on their phones.

If you want to install the Digital Wellbeing dashboard on your Pixel or Android One smartphone, all you need to do is search and download it from the Play Store. Once installed, it won’t be in your app drawer – it will be in the Settings menu.

From here, you can view how long you are spending on which apps and set limits and conditions to keep off timewasters during times that productivity is needed.


Google Assistant just updated with Siri Shortcuts: “Hey Siri… Hey Google”

Google apps have always taken a backseat behind Apple’s own offerings for Maps, Music, and even with Siri. Let’s face it, many people find Siri to be inferior to the Google Assistant in many aspects including voice recognition. Today’s news makes it one step easier to access Google Assistant via Siri Shortcuts.

The latest version of Google Assistant for iOS supports Apple’s Shortcuts app, which lets you program a list of tasks to perform using a vocal phrase with Siri or a shortcut that you add to a homescreen. Now, you can set the Shortcuts app to open Google Assistant with a phrase that you choose. For example, you can tell Siri “Goodnight” and it would turn set itself to Do Not Disturb mode and switch on the blue light filter.

You could program the phrase “Hey Google” as a shortcut to launch the Google Assistant app. Once launched, the Assistant app will be listening for a command right away. This means that you could actually say “Hey Siri, Hey Google”, then wait a few seconds for Assistant to open and then speak your command to Google.

It’s not the most elegant solution, but it is better than saying “Hey Siri, open Google Assistant….. Hey Google”. You can even make it more elaborate and program a phrase to access a Google Assistant Routine. We just hope Siri’s feelings don’t get hurt.

Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 Won’t Get Android Pie-Based One UI: Report

Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 Won't Get Android Pie-Based One UI: Report

Unlike the Galaxy S9 ₹ 45,885, Galaxy S9+ ₹ 51,900, and Galaxy Note 9 that all are set to receive Android Pie-based One UI early next year, Samsung reportedly has no plans to bring an identical experience to the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ ₹ 40,149, and Galaxy Note 8. These last year flagship models are so far running Samsung Experience UX that doesn’t have one-handed features that will make their way to the One UI. The new experience is also designed for newer form factors, including foldable smartphones.

Tom Guide reports Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 ₹ 46,900 will “miss out” on the One UI experience. In contrast, the South Korean giant at the SDC 2018 on Wednesday revealed that it would bring One UI based on Android Pie to the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 in January next year. An open beta programme for the new interface will be kicked off later this month in the US, Germany, and South Korea, with other countries in Europe and Asia to follow.

Among other new features and tweaks, Samsung’s One UI is designed to deliver a “more natural and comfortable” one-handed user experience over what’s available on the existing Samsung Experience UX. Samsung has transformed the upper part of the screen for viewing and designed its lower part for touch interaction. Moreover, the options on the Settings menu have been rearranged to provide relative functions together, while tabs on various pre-installed apps such as the Clock app have been moved from the top to the bottom to make them easily accessible with a thumb.

Samsung’s UX Design team has been working on the new experience for the past year. The major aim of the interface is to provide a less cluttered experience over the existing custom skin. It is also designed for the foldable smartphone form factor that Samsung showcased at the SDC 2018 keynote.

It is unclear whether the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 will receive an Android Pie update with the Samsung Experience UX. We’ve reached to Samsung for clarity on the development.

Notably, the Samsung Galaxy S8 ₹ 29,399, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 were launched with Android Nougat-based Samsung Experience UX last year, though the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ received an update to Android Oreo back in February after facing some initial issues. Samsung also brought the Oreo update to the Galaxy Note 8 in March.
