Samsung is set to refresh the Galaxy-A series next year, with the Galaxy A71, A51, and the A91 rumoured to launch soon. The Galaxy A71’s alleged specifications surfaced online recently, and now, a pair of new leaks claim to show how the phone will look and its battery capacity as well. As per alleged Galaxy A71 leak-based renders, the phone will pack a quad rear camera setup and a centrally-positioned hole punch, much like the flagship Galaxy Note 10 duo. Moreover, the Galaxy A71 is tipped to pack a 4,500mAh battery.
The alleged Galaxy A71 leak-based renders, which come courtesy of CashKaro in collaboration with @OnLeaks, show the phone packing a quad rear camera setup at the back. The camera lenses are arranged in an L-shaped array, much like the one we recently came across on the leaked Galaxy A51 renders. Over at the front, the phone is shown flaunting a centrally aligned hole-punch that houses the single selfie camera.
Coming to the camera specifications, the Galaxy A71’s quad rear camera setup will reportedly be highlighted by a 48-megapixel main snapper. It will be accompanied by a 12-megapixel wide-angle snapper, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, and 3D ToF camera for depth sensing. On the front, the phone will offer a 32-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. The phone is tipped to draw power from the Snapdragon 675 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM. However, a previous report mentioned that Samsung is also preparing to launch a Galaxy A71 5G variant will be powered by the in-house Exynos 980 SoC.
Bezels around the display are quite thin, save for the chin at the bottom. The Galaxy A71 is said to pack a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) Super AMOLED display. Dimensions of the upcoming phone are tipped to be 163.5 x 76 x 7.9mm. Since the phone lacks a physical fingerprint sensor, it appears that the Galaxy A71 will opt for an in-display fingerprint sensing module akin to its predecessor. The top edge is barren, while the bottom edge is populated by a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and the speaker.
Moreover, batteries for a Samsung phone carrying the model number SM-A715F have been certified by SafetyKorea. Photos of the battery accompanying the certification documents, which were first spotted by GalaxyClub, show the battery capacity to be 4,500mAh. However, there is no mention of support for fast charging. We’ll get to know more when the Galaxy A71 goes official next year.
Xiaomi Civi 2, Redmi 11A Allegedly Certified by 3C, Charging Specifications Tipped
Xiaomi Civi 2 is in the works and may launch next month, if past leaks are any indication. In a fresh update, the Xiaomi Civi successor has allegedly appeared on the China Compulsory Certification (3C) website. The listing suggests 67W fast charging support on the upcoming phone. It is listed with 5G connectivity as well. Alongside the Xiaomi Civi 2, another entry-level 5G device has supposedly surfaced on the 3C website. The listing, which indicates 10W fast charging support, is believed to be that of the Redmi 11A.
As per a report by Nashvillechatter, two unannounced Xiaomi smartphones with model numbers 2209129SC and 22095RA98C have bagged certification from China’s 3C website. The former is believed to be the Xiaomi Civi 2, while the latter is expected to come with the Redmi 11A moniker.
The charger reportedly spotted along with the Xiaomi Civi 2 carries model number MDY-12-EF, suggesting 67W fast charging support on the upcoming device. The bundled charger of the rumoured Redmi 11A seems to support up to 10W fast charging. The 3C listing suggests that both the phones will have 5G connectivity.
However, Xiaomi hasn’t yet confirmed the existence of the Xiaomi Civi 2 and Redmi 11A.
Previous leaks suggest that the Xiaomi Civi 2 could be announced around September as a successor to last year’s Xiaomi Civi. The new model is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. According to tipster Digital Chat Station, the Xiaomi Civi 2 could pack a micro-curved flexible OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The display is said to come with Dolby Vision technology and narrow bezels. Specifications of the Redmi 11A, on the other hand, are expected to pop up online in the coming days.
To recall, the Xiaomi Civi was launched in Chinese market with a starting price tag of CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 29,600) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
The Xiaomi Civi features a 6.55-inch full-HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate and is powered by a Snapdragon 778G SoC paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage. A triple rear camera setup headlined by a 64-megapixel primary sensor, and a 4,500mAh battery with 55W fast charging are the other key highlights of the phone.
Samsung Cuts 2022 Smartphone Shipments Target to 260 Million Units Due to Supply Chain Constraints: Report
Samsung has reportedly reduced its smartphone shipments target for 2022. The South Korean giant had planned to produce 334 million handsets earlier this year, and aimed at shipping about 300 million units of its phones, as per the report. The company is said to have now reduced their phone shipments target for 2022 to 260 million units. The report added that Samsung shipped 270 million smartphones in 2021, and the new target is even lower than that. Samsung reportedly saw its biggest dip in phone shipments in 2020.
According to a report by TheElec, the South Korean giant has reduced its smartphones shipment target for 2022 to 260 million units to 300 million units. Samsung reportedly took the decision because of the slum in global economy, supply chain constraints, and overall low demand for phones. Earlier this year, the company had set a target to produce about 334 million phones, the report added.
Samsung shipped 270 million smartphones in 2021, as per the report. The company reportedly witnessed its biggest dip in phone shipments in 2020 due to the pandemic when it only shipped around 250 million units. The new target seems to fall between the number of units shipped in 2021 and 2020. Prior to the pandemic, the South Korean company had reportedly shipped more than 300 million smartphones per year.
As per the report, out of the 334 million phones that Samsung had planned to manufacture this year, 284 million would have been produced in company’s own facilities, and the remaining 50 million units would have been produced with its partners in China. The report further added that Samsung is currently planning to produce about 34 million units between October and November this year. This is said to be far less than the units manufactured in previous quarters this year, and the same quarter in 2021.
Recently, Samsung had reportedly said that the ongoing inflation is unlikely to affect the demand for smartphones in India. Samsung reportedly also said that it estimates double-digit growth in volumes this year.
