Moto X4 Leaked Render Shows Dual Camera Setup Design Up Close

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Moto X4 is expected to feature dual camera setup
  • The earlier leaked render of smartphone showed a different design
  • Moto X4 is expected to feature a 5-inch display

Recently, Evan Blass shared the final design that is expected to feature on the upcoming Moto X4 smartphone and admitted that the previous render shared by him was not reflective of the finished product. Now, Blass has shared a new render of the smartphone’s camera design that gives an even closer and better look at the design of camera setup on Moto X4.

Blass shared the image from a Lenovo presentation that was leaked earlier this year and said that this is going to be the final design on Moto X4 smartphone. The newly leaked render of the Moto X4 shows the smartphone with the dual camera setup and LED flash support at the top.

As per the previous leaks, the Moto X4 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and sport a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display. The smartphone is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 630 SoC. The Moto X4 has been tipped to come with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM. There is discrepancy in terms of storage as the smartphone can come with either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage. It is possible that Moto X4 might be launched in two variants – 3GB RAM/ 16GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 32GB storage.

In terms of optics, the GFXBench listing of the smartphone has suggested that it sports a 16-megapixel camera at front and a 12-megapixel sensor at the back. The Moto X4 is expected to come with a dual camera setup with a 12-megapixel and another 8-megapixel sensor at the back. Interestingly, the Moto X4 is expected to be the first non-Google smartphone to support the search giant’s Project Fi MVNO service that allow users to switch seamlessly between the different carriers.

Alleged Xiaomi Mi 5s render leaks, reveals dual camera setup

As you might already know, Xiaomi is working on a successor to the Mi 5, dubbed Mi 5s. We’ve already told you some of its rumored specifications, and now an alleged render of the device has leaked.

The render in question shows the black colored variant of the handset, and the most important thing it reveals is a dual rear camera setup.

In case you don’t already know, there were reports last month that the Chinese company is purchasing dual-camera modules from Samsung for its upcoming phones. So, the possibility of the Mi 5s sporting a dual camera design cannot be ruled out.

As for specs, from what we’ve heard so far, the phone will be powered by SD820 SoC and sport a 5.5-inch full HD display. It will have 6GB RAM, and feature a fingerprint sensor as well as Force Touch technology.

ZTE Grand X Max 2 launched with dual rear camera setup, 6-inch display

ZTE has launched a new smartphone in the US. Dubbed Grand X Max 2, the device – which comes with a large 6-inch display and dual rear camera setup – is now available for purchase from AT&T’s prepaid subsidiary Cricket.

Other specifications of the handset include full HD display, 1.5GHz octa-core processor (Snapdragon 617 SoC), 2GB/16GB memory configuration, and 3,400mAh battery. It features dual rear (13MP + 2MP) cameras and a 5MP front shooter.

The phone is 4G compatible, features Quick Charge 2.0, offers USB Type-C connectivity, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. As for price, the Grand X Max 2 carries a tag of $200.

KGI: All iPhone 7 Plus versions to feature dual-camera setup

According to the latest report by Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his predictions on the upcomingiPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the company’s 5.5″ flagship is likely to feature a dual-camera setup. Previously, Ming-Chi Kuo believed Apple would only equip the top-of-the-line iPhone 7 Plus with dual cameras. However, because of the positive customer reaction towards the LG G5 and Huawei P9 for their camera setup, Apple has changed its mind.

The change of plans would also mean that Apple will include 3GB of RAM in all 5.5″ iPhone 7 Plus models. According to KGI’s analyst, Sony and LG will be able to meet Apple’s demand for dual-camera modules in 2016.

Additional rumors and leaks suggest the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will drop the 3.5mm headphone jack, but a recent leak of a diagram says otherwise. The Apple iPhone 7 could be waterproof and it might sport a touch home button. Its antenna lines are apparently going to be redesigned for a more streamlined look.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are due to be outed at Apple’s annual fall event.

Moto G4 Plus With Fingerprint Scanner, New Rear Camera Setup Spotted

Moto G4 Plus With Fingerprint Scanner, New Rear Camera Setup Spotted

Motorola can be expected to announce a ‘Plus’ variant alongside the regular Moto G4 this year, if a new leak is to be believed. Phone tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks has shared an image on Twitter claiming to show the Moto G4 Plus. While the image doesn’t show the entire handset but it does show the home button which is likely to integrate the fingerprint scanner. Currently, it’s not clear whether the fingerprint scanner is a standalone sensor or if it is integrated into the home button, just like Samsung’s Galaxy handsets.

Recently, front panel of an alleged Moto X3 featuring a fingerprint scanner right below the display was also pictured in the wild. Considering that both the leaked images show similar setup of buttons below the display, we can expect Lenovo and Motorola to make the fingerprint scanner placement standard in upcoming line-up of Moto handsets.

Additionally, Nowhereelse has posted a bunch of images claiming to show the front and rear panel of the Moto G4 Plus smartphone. The leaked live image of the front panel of the Moto G4 Plus corroborates the presence of the home button. It also shows the Moto logo present at the left corner above the display. Another image showing the back panel of the Moto G4 Plus purportedly shows an all-new rear camera setup. Unlike the present generation, the Moto G4 Plus is likely to house a silver lining holding just the primary camera and LED flash. The iconic Moto logo on the back is placed separately in the middle and unlike previous generation of the Moto G is not attached to the rear panel.

Sony IMX318 22.5-Megapixel Camera Sensor Launched for Smartphones

Sony IMX318 22.5-Megapixel Camera Sensor Launched for Smartphones

Sony on Tuesday revealed its new IMX318 CMOS Exmor RS image sensor for smartphones. The Japanese company touts its latest camera chip as the industry’s first stacked CMOS image sensor with built-in hybrid autofocus (as fast as 0.03 seconds) and 3-Axis electronic image stabilisation (EIS).

The Sony IMX318 CMOS Exmor RS image sensor features a 1/ 2.6-inch stacked CMOS image sensor with 22.5 effective megapixels (5488×4112 pixel count). The company says it will start shipping the sensor in May (Q2 2016) this year, which is around the same time when the Sony Xperia Z6 is rumoured to launch.

Sony adds that the IMX318 includes industry’s smallest unit pixels, which measure 1.0um, due to which the image sensor boasts a compact size while retaining the 22.5 effective megapixels. With the sensor, the end users can “capture image stills of those decisive moments reliably in high quality, as well as high resolution video without fear of blur.”

The IMX318 is said to be the successor to the IMX230 (1/ 2.4-inch sensor with 1.12um unit pixel size), which has been used in Sony Xperia Z5. The smartphone however, ties up with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ for the best camera phone as per DxOMark, an image quality-rating website. Sony has made it clear that smaller pixel size does not hard the image quality in any manner. “To accomplish this, Sony employed manufacturing technology that improves light utilisation efficiency, as well as circuit design technology that eliminates noise, a root cause of deterioration in image quality.”

As for its video capabilities, the latest camera sensor corrects not only camera shake, but also lens distortion for better output. In addition, since the image stabilisation processing takes place within the hardware of the image sensor, less power is consumed from the handset. Sony says that since the sensor enables smooth video recording, it can be used in other products as well such as drones. The sensor can record 4K resolution videos at up to 30fps, full-HD resolution videos at up to 120fps, and HD videos at up to 240fps.

Sony, in a blog post, said that it adopted the MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) Alliance’s latest C-PHY 1.0/D-PHY 1.2 specifications for its IMX318 CMOS Exmor RS image sensor. “With this interface, the IMX318 is able to achieve more power efficient and faster data transmission from the image sensor to the application processor,” says the firm.
