Oppo teases world's first under display camera : Is this the future?

After the notch-so good trend of weird notch on the top of the phone - every company literally just went with the flow and added notch. Some were "okay" and some company went so far that they could compete "most ugliest phone" without a competition.(jokes on you Google). However, the trend was somehow silenced with the water drop notch which - at least is pleasing to watch and adds aesthetics to you device.


However, the companies were full of surprises and various ideas were pitched to increase the screen size and remove that "ugly" notch on the top of the smartphone. Vivo introduced the pop-up camera and it was somewhat of a sensation. Every major company are adapting the same convention -  with the latest OnePlus 7 Pro and also Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro. These pop-up camera are a real deal because it provides you the all screen to body ratio. Oppo came with other crazy designs like "shark-fin" camera but it was just another hit at trends. Recently, there's another player with new design idea - Samsung Galaxy A80 and ASUS Zenfone 6.

However, Oppo seems to change the game completely itself and set a stone for new trend that will likely continue throughout the year.  Previously, Samsung was heard of working on similar technologies, however as it seems, Oppo will probably be the first company to implement the technology.

The new video posted by Oppo, showcases a smartphone with the working in-display front camera. The camera app launches the camera and the screen sizes reduces a little, making the area for the front camera to appear.

The video posted is short on and sure hints at what technology the company is working at. However, much details about the phone is yet to be witnessed. The image quality and feasibility of the camera is yet to de detailed.

Furthermore, the Chinese tech-giant Xiaomi is also reportedly working  on the same technology. Xiaomi has reportedly filed a patent for the in-display camera module, as hinted by an twitter account.

Realme X : the real mid-tier flagship killer?

Oppo's sub brand, Realme has launched their latest mid-tier flagship last week in China. The brand is emerging rapidly and it's really hard to believe that it stepped up just 12 months ago. The rapid product release and value for money device, Realme has suddenly made a good name in short period of time, especially in Indian sub-continent.
Realme X price and specs in Nepal, features and looks


Realme just announced the "Realme X", their first pop-up selfie camera smartphone and from the initials both on device and on paper, it seems Realme is stepping the right steps.

With the fullscreen bezel-less display(notchless), a pop-up selfie camera, on-display fingerprint scanner and gradient finish which competes for other higher-tier flagships, this phone looks just like the lite version of OnePlus 7.

What do you get? 

It has a 6.53-inch AMOLED display(2340 x 1080 pixels) with 19:5:19 aspect ration and a good 91.2% screen-to-body ratio. There's a little bezel and the bottom but it is justifiable because to make it truly bezel-less the sceen underneath has to be bent and it is quite expensive. As discussed earlier, the main attraction are in-display fingerprint sensor and that pop-up selfie camera.

The smartphone boasts 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor and a 5MP secondary sensor. The front-facing camera rocks a 1 6-megapixel Sony IMX471 camera.

As for now, the smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 710 processor and the initial piece has a RAM of 4GB however another varient with 8 GB of RAM is expected to launch too. It has 128 GB of internal storage and unfortunately there's no facility of expandable storage. The phone also has 3765mAH battery which supports VOOC 3.0 Fast charging support.

When is it launching?

The phone was launched just a week earlier in China and is expected to launch in India in  the mid June or earlier. While the exact date of launch in India is not specified, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the Indian variant will have different specs than that of the Chinese version. Also, he further specified that the Indian variant will have two more color flavors - Onion and Garlic -  designed by Naoto Fukasawa.
The phone will come in two different flavors ; Garlic and Onion.
 Much details haven't been confirmed, but from the current perspective we can assume that the phone will have an upgraded Snapdragon 730 processor. It makes sense as Indian market has Redmi Note 7 Pro rocking the market and Realme has to address that market range.

The price of the smartphone is rumored to be around 16,999 to around 18,000 INR. Redmi is also supposed to release their new series of smartphone - the K series, so Realme has to make a decent price tag if they want their phone to succeed in Indian market.

So, is it a good buy?

The to-go competitor of the Realme X, especially in the Indian market is Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro which has a price range of around 15890 INR.  The phone comes with 4GB+64GB storage and 6.3 inch 1080x2340 display with waterdrop notch. However, Realme X has a upper hand here because of it's AMOLED display panel. The battery of the Realme X , on the other hand is slightly lower than the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Realme X posses a newer and faster CPU than the Note 7 Pro but the performace is still awesome on both the phones. Realme X is also a bit heavier considered to the Note 7 Pro.

Both the smartphones are great in their price range but Realme X here has a bit of win-win situation. Note 7 Pro on the other hand has already seen many customers and which of them are satisfied. The motorized part of the Realme X has to be noticed as having any motorized part is a fragile consideration.

Is it coming to Nepal? 

Well,  in this initial phase it's difficult to guess but we can probably make a speculation. The phone is rumored to launch in mid June in India which means it will arrive in Nepal in around couple of weeks after that. The price is rumored to be around NPR 29,000(as we expect  it to be).

So, what do you guys think? Which, in your opinion is the best of these two smartphone?

"Freakers" will attack for sure. The infected humans dynamics is difficult to master. With the trailer of game already hinting so much deails, it is not easy to ignore the remaining best about this game.
You'll play the game as a lone bike surviving in the wake of a gobal pandemic. These zombie-like creatures will sweep the floor like a tsunami. The number of them will me so higher that sometimes there is no other option other than to run away from them.  
The environment is changing as you  play the game and everything in the game wants to kill you. Freakers are of different sorts - screamers, breakers, infected animals, infected crows and so on.  You have a bike and you have to take care of it -  I mean really take care of it.

  Rage 2

  

    Publisher /Developer: Bethesda , Avalanche Studios / Id Software

    Platform: Xbox One, PS4, PC

   Rage 2 release date: May 14, 2019

This is one of the most anticipated games of 2019. Id software and Avalanche's frenetic shooter is looking crazy. After a giant asteroid kills most of humankind, the remaining survivors have to fend for themselves against legions. The game is a bit cheeky and a bit gross. The pink neon madness and carnage, violence and ridiculous weapons will surely be one exciting aspect of the game.

  Borderlands 3 

Haven't you watched the trailer of "Borderlands 3" yet ? The trailer is exciting as it should be and there are so much things to talk about it.




  Borderlands 3 release date: September 13, 2019

   Developer: Gearbox

   Formats: PS4, Xbox One, PC (Epic Games Store 6-month exclusive)


The trailer looks amazing.  The low-poly graphics with wonderfully created environments looks absolutely amazing. New and returning characters, new planets and among billions guns to choose, this fast paced shooting will be a thrilling experience.

  Doom  Eternal


Creators :id Software

Release Date : To be fixed (2019) 

Who wouldn't be excited for this game? Doom was one of my personal favorite shooting games. Also the good news is, the game won't be on Bethesda Launcher and it surely will not be an Epic exclusive. The game will be available on Steam. Also, the DOOM Eternal is launching for Google Stadia. So, even though you don't have a great GPU, you may be able to run the game using Google Stadia.

Watch the Official Gameplay Trailer:



Blood, blood and more blood. Id's software ultra-violent shooter has a separated reputation with all it's game play, hellfire and of course shotguns. With new weapons and armour, it'll be total fun to kill more demons.

Control

 

Creators : Remedy Entertainment

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC
 Release Date: August 27, 2019
The idea behind the Control looks amazing. From the creators of Alan Wake and Quantum Break, this game sets to enter a new game play mechanics. The concept of telekinetic powers to control objects and use them against enemies, at least for now sounds and looks amazing. The game play trailer looks promising and we have lot of expectations from Remedy Entertainment.

Skull and Bones

 Ubisoft Singapore/Ubisoft

Release Date : 2019/20

Creators : Ubisoft Singapore

Platform :PC, PS4 and Xbox One

 Don't you like to fight like a pirate on high seas ? Loading the cannons and wrecking ships around sounds like an pretty interesting idea. The idea of this game is the same as we've felt while playing the Assassin's Creed 4 : Black Flag. The ship-to-ship combat of the game was pretty intense and this game is set to improvise and add many new things , which surely will be a thing to watch on.
