After launching a highly successful Reno 2 series, Chinese handset maker OPPO has brought A9 2020 to bring some competition in the mid-segment market in India.

The Oppo A9 2020 comes with quad-camera setup with 5,000mAh battery as its USP. The device is available in two variants — 4GB RAM+128GB ROM priced at Rs 16,990 and 8GB RAM+128GB ROM at Rs 19,990 in two colours, Marine Green and Space Purple.

An upgrade of Oppo A9, the A9 2020 also features a 3D gradient design.

We tested 8GB RAM+128GB device (Rs 19,990) in Space Purple. Let’s see how it fares.

In terms of design, the device scores decent marks. The back looks attractive with glass-like finish which gives it an aesthetic feel.

The quad rear camera is placed vertically alongside the LED flash, which adds extra charm.

The fingerprint sensor, placed at the back, was quick. The OPPO logo is placed vertically in centre.

The left edge of the phone hosts the dual-SIM card tray and the volume buttons and the SIM tray hosts a dedicated space for Micro-SD card which helps users expand in-built 8GB memory up to 256GB.

The volume rockers are at the left and power button at right, quite easy to operate. The lower edge of the phone houses speakers, Type C charging slot with fast-charging support and an audio jack input.

The smartphone features 6.53-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 1,600×720. The device’s screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The front of the device has dew-drop notch design that looks good.

The automatic brightness feature on-screen worked fine both indoors and outdoors.

The quad rear camera (48MP+8MP+2MP+2MP) is placed at the upper centre vertically alongside the LED flash.

The rear camera has basic panorama, HDR and video modes, along with some interesting image-enhancing features like AI-filters, ultra-wide mode, slow motion and time-lapse photography.

The camera produced some good snaps in daylight. However, it didn’t work good in low-light conditions.

The 16MP front camera features AI beautification and portrait mode, that gave sharp and good selfies.

The device has fingerprint unlock sensor as well as face unlock feature and both functioned smoothly.

The Dolby Atmos dual stereo speakers worked well.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, the device runs Android 9 Pie-based ColorOS 6.0.1.

Snapdragon 665 provides faster performance while simultaneously lowering power consumption by 20 per cent.

The 5,000mAh battery kept the juice for almost a day.

However, despite having the “gaming boost 2.0” software, the device experienced lags while playing.

The phone competes well against Realme 5 Pro and Vivo Z1X at this price point.

Samsung plans to introduce 8K video recording support to its upcoming smartphone Galaxy S11

South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce 8K video recording support to its upcoming smartphone Galaxy S11.

A new code in the APK file (the Android app software file) for Samsung’s camera app suggests that Galaxy S11 lineup would support 8K video recording, XDA Developers reported on Sunday.

The Exynos 990 chipset, which is expected to power the international variants of the device, features 8K@30fps video decoding/encoding capabilities.

Additionally, Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865 chip, which will power the US variants of the S11, is also expected to have enough horsepower to offer 8K video recording.

Earlier, famed leakster Ice Universe had claimed that the Galaxy S11 would not use the 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that it launched earlier this year, but would instead utilise an upgraded second-generation sensor.

Opting for a second-generation version of Samsung’s 108MP lens would also make sense, since the original version has on a Xiaomi handset first, so it won’t be a totally new thing by the time the Samsung Galaxy S11 launches.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 smartphone will be available in three screen sizes – 6.4 or 6.2-inch being the smallest, mid-sized with 6.4-inch and 6.7-inch being the largest one.

Evan Blass also claimed that there would be five variants in total that all sport curved-edge displays.

On the part of connectivity, the two small variants of the smartphone will come in 5G and LTE, whereas the largest 6.7-inch variant will be 5G only.

As per a recent report, Galaxy S11 would arrive in the third week of February 2020 and the launch event is said to take place in San Francisco. (IANS)
