Pixel 8a Specs Revealed: 120Hz Display, Tensor G3, and More

Published

on


Google has recently introduced its latest Pixel 8 series, where it has showcased two phones, including the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Both of the devices belong to the high-range category, but now, as usual, Google has brought a new device, the Google Pixel 8a, which comes in an affordable range. Now that it’s launching, we already have some details about it; let’s explore it. 

A new and improved display, yet again

The display is the most important component of the device, which has a full impact on the user experience. In the last Pixel 7a lineup, the company has introduced a significant update to the display, but Google had to limit the display to only 90 Hz. Now, with the upcoming Pixel 8a, the company has provided a 120 Hz refresh rate display with 1400 nits of peak HDR brightness.

Supports DisplayPort

As we previously discussed, Google could introduce mirror display support for pixel devices, which allows the device to use the device functions on big screens. To make this possible, the company has introduced DisplayPort output support. However, there are still a few possibilities similar to the Samsung DeX. As far as the working of the feature, it could be fully functional with the upcoming Android 15 update.

High performance with the latest tensor G3 SoC

According to the report, the Google Pixel will be equipped with the same SoC that was introduced in the Pixel 8 series, which means you will get professional-grade performance. However, in comparison to the last SoC tensor, G2, it will provide a little bit of performance enhancement.

Going into details, the Tensor G3 will prove to be an improved CPU for the company. It has replaced the old scores like the Cortex-X1 and Cortex-A55 cores with the late 2022 cores, which will offer enhanced power and more power efficiency. The company has also used a new setup for Coresas 1+4+4, which gives an extra CPU core. 

However, there is a slight difference in processors that arrived in the Pixel 8a in comparison to the other Pixel 8 series devices. The chip has been clipped with the silicon diie inside; the chip is identical, but it is coated with plastic packages. On the other side, the regular G3 uses FOPLP (Fan-Out Panel Level Packaging).

As the Tesor chip is designed by the corporation of Google and Samsung, Samsung describes that IPoP is thicker and hotter than FOPLP, but it is also cheaper, which explains the decision.

Galaxy S25 to Retain Same Battery Capacity as Previous Models

Published

By


Even though 2025 is still half a year away, Samsung has already begun preparing for the launch of its next flagship device, the Galaxy S25, in early 2025. The upcoming Galaxy S25 is expected not to get a bigger battery. 

Even before any official announcement and launch of the Galaxy S25, leaks and rumors are blowing in the market. Now the new report says that Samsung will not offer major battery upgrades for the Galaxy S25. The statistic bar of the battery ratio in the Galaxy S-series shakes usually since the Galaxy S22 features 3700 mAh, the Galaxy S23 has 3900 mAh, and the recently launched Galaxy S24 has 4000 mAh. 

Now the brand is looking forward to debuting its next-generation Galaxy S25, and reports are saying that it will not bring any battery upgrades. Reports suggest that the standard Samsung Galaxy S25 with the model number SM-S931 will have a similar battery power of around 4000 mAh as its predecessor series. 

The Korean giant has already secured the name for the upcoming model “Galaxy S25” in Mexico, suggesting a launch in 2025. This appears to be a recent pre-registration device name trend for the giant well before launch. Recently, the brand registered the names of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 7. However, the latter is not expected until next year, just like the Galaxy S25. 

However, securing the Galaxy S25 trademark doesn’t exactly guarantee that the series will last for two years. Meanwhile, the Koran giant could intend to continue the successful S-series, but pre-registering a name doesn’t confirm long-term plans.

As we are moving closer to witnessing Samsung’s next flagship foldable models, the Galaxy Z Fold6 and Flip6, several predictions are suggesting hints on what could be expected with these foldables. Although Samsung is busy preparing itself to raise the curtains on its next-generation foldables, which could happen next month during its Galaxy Unpacked 2024, a fresh leak significantly suggests their exciting colorways. 

Galaxy Z Fold6 will feature 5 colors, while the Flip6 will be available in 7 shades:

According to the leak shared by Evan Blass on X, Samsung’s upcoming Z-foldable smartphone series will feature some exciting colors. The Galaxy Z Fold6 is reported to come in three colorways: pink, navy, and silver shadow, while the clamshell Galaxy Z Flip6 will be available in four color variants, including mint, blue, silver shadow, and yellow. 

Moreover, Blass further added that despite the aforementioned colorways, Samsung could exclusively offer the Galaxy Z Fold6 in white and crafted black colors, while the Z Flip6 could feature white, crafted black, and an additional peach color. Also, these colors could only be exclusive to Samsung’s online stores in certain regions. 

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6:

  • Pink
  • Navy
  • Silver Shadow
  • White
  • Crafted Black 

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip6:

  • Mint
  • Blue
  • Silver Shadow
  • Yellow. 
  • White
  • Crafted Black
  • Peach 

As far as the color options of the upcoming Galaxy Z foldables are concerned, Samsung appears to be going crazy by adapting a new approach to its Galaxy Z Fold6 and Flip6, introducing some vibrant and punchy colors like pink and peach. Also, this latest leak will increase the level of excitement among Samsung fans, as they can’t wait to get their hands on the upcoming foldables. In contrast, it’s expected that the brand could add more enhancements to its Galaxy Z Fold6 and Flip6, including a better chipset, an improved rear camera system, better battery capacity with fast wired and wireless charging support, and more.

No New OS Update for Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A52s 5G

Published

By


Samsung Galaxy A52 is a family of three members, including the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A52s. It lost its software support after receiving the latest Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update. 

Recently, Samsung has delivered the One UI 6.1 update to the Galaxy A52 lineup, and that will be its final major OS update. The brand debuted all three Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A52s back in 2021, when it followed the policy to offer three years of major Android upgrades and four years of security patches for specific devices. According to this policy, Samsung promised to offer three years of major OS updates to the Galaxy A52 lineup. 

Finally, Galaxy A52 models have received all the allotted OS updates. They arrived with Android 11-based One UI 3 out of the box, and until the current Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update, they have received their three major OS and One UI updates. Since they have received three major OS updates, they are only eligible to receive security updates. Those security updates will come every three months for the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G, at least until 2025, and monthly for the Galaxy A52s. It will be interesting to see whether or not security updates will be available after that. 

On the other hand, the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A51 5G received security patches for four years, but it seems that the A52 lineup could get a fifth year of security updates before Samsung discontinues support. As far as Android and One UI updates that bring new features are concerned.
