IPhone 7 To Come With 5 Essential Features

0

The iPhone 7 is expected to release in Sep this year and reports are in that it won’t feature a headphone jack, but will have a faster Touch ID, will be completely waterproof and have a uni-body material made of glass. Moreover, it will come in 3 screen size variants: 4” 4.7” & 5.5”. It will have 2GB RAM, but higher models will have 3GB of RAM. It will have a dual camera and a high battery capacity, not to forget, an A10 chip.

image

A recent leaked image showed antenna lines on the top and bottom of the phone, and a mysterious hole🕳 between the camera and dual-LED flash, but it’s probably just a noise-cancelling microphone, however it could be for a laser autofocus module.
The iPhone7 will have a smart connector which will allow users to connect to an Apple smart keyboard.

Infinix: Grim future ahead?

0

Infinix Mobility, one of the fastest growing smartphone companies in Nigeria is now the name in every household.  One in two Nigerians own an Infinix smartphone and virtually every Nigerian has heard of the Infinix brand of smartphones.

Going through the current tech trend and situation of things in Nigeria, It may be time for Infinix to “step up its game”.

  1. WHERE THE ARE THE ACCESORIES?

Hey, If you don’t plan to cut the 3.5mm headphone jack from your smartphone design(Apple style), you might want to consider including those factory made earphones we’re so proud of.

The disappointment is always crushing when our smartphones ship without important accessories like earphones, earbuds, and in some cases extra USB adapters. Other major brands in Nigeria sell their phones with accessories like Covers (with leather, rubber options), Screen Guard, OTG Cables etc regardless of the budget level.

We salute them for including a tampered glass for the Infinix Note 3, but it wouldn’t have hurt to include a cover.. It’s the little things, right? 

2. LONG LASTING FLASH CHARGERS

Ain’t nothing compared to the joy you get when your device can go from 0 to 100 real quick.  It’s awesome, but it breaks your heart that the charger might be useless after some months. Have you ever noticed the issues with the Infinix chargers lately?

The USB cable just fails you gradually, it might require you to purchase another USB CABLE.

Later the Adapter’s USB port starts to shake and misbehave. At the end you’re left with a useless Infinix  Flash Charger (It’s Terrible) getting another flash charging charger is an even worse Headache.

Infinix should get better by providing us with quality USB Cables and Adapters.

3. WHERE TO BUY ORIGINAL ACCESSORIES

With the brand Infinix has been able to build it is rather surprising that they are yet to have a certified store/partner that sells Original Infinix Accessories. It may prove to be a good idea if Infinix can urge Oraimo, a long time partner, to create accesories for them and sell through their accredited online and offline stores across Nigeria and Africa at large. This will be a solution to the problem of unavailability of Original Infinix Accessories.

Conclusion :  If you think TechPhreak has omitted anything that hurts your heart about Infinix please don’t hesitate to let us know via the comment box below.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share.

 

Leaked Sketch Photo Of Iphone 7 Pro Has Two iSight Camera And No Headphone Jack

0

Its just getting crazier for Apple this days, today we came across design schematics from Japan and it seems Apple is trashing the Iphone 7 Plus name and headphone jack,  iPhone 7 Pro moniker and two iSight cameras may be in.

Detailed drawings of Apple’s larger-sized iPhone 7 suggest that it’ll be the same thickness as the iPhone 6S Plus at 7.3mm, but add new features, according to Japanese magazine Mac Fan.

A dual-lens rear camera is the phablet-sized highlight of this iPhone 7 Pro sketch, and it backs up last week’s newly discovered Apple patent for telephoto and broader lenses in one device.

Iphone 7 Plus

Two main Camera features have been used on smartphones recently: the LG G5 can take either tighter, normal 16MP pictures or wider 8MP photos with its second camera.

The Huawei P9 simultaneously shoots black-and-white photos with more detail and color photos for more vivid tones, and then combines them into one with an adjustable bokeh effect.

These aren’t even the two best camera phones. That title belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, so Apple has its work cut out for itself in September.

It’s clear to everyone that Apple needs to improve on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus camera in the face of mounting competition, and a dual camera setup is one way of doing just that.

However, it’s unclear to most why the company would axe the iPhone headphone jack, as rumors have suggested. They may have more to do with each other than you think.

The schematics indicate the iPhone 7 Pro will be the same dimensions as the iPhone 6S Plus, even with the second iSight camera onboard.

That may be why Apple is allegedly consolidating the headphone jack and Lighting port. Every bit of extra space counts when it comes to the world’s best phones.

In conclusion, the sketch from Japan might be true or false we don’t know if Apple will call it iPhone 7 Pro or maybe they will use this design, more information will be available by Mid-September.
