Week 11 in review: Galaxy A34 and A54 debut, Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 official

Another week behind us, so let’s look back at the top stories. Samsung’s Galaxy A34 and A54 were finally revealed. The duo, sure to be one of the most popular phones of the year, feature 1080p 120Hz Super AMOLED displays, 5,000mAh batteries with 25W charging, and IP67 water resistance. The Galaxy A54 has a smaller 6.4-inch screen, a 50-megapixel main camera and a 5-nanometer Exynos 1380 chipset. The A34 has a 6.6-inch screen, a 48-megapixel main camera and a 6-nanometer Dimensity 1080. Both are on sale – the Galaxy A54 costs 490 euros, while the A34 costs 390 euros.

We got a bunch of Google leaks this week. The Pixel 7a was treated in the wild and even went up for sale on eBay as a prototype. It has a 6.1-inch screen, 8GB of RAM, a Tensor G2 chipset, and a 64-megapixel main camera with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide. The Pixel 7a will be released in June alongside the Google Pixel Fold, which we learned costs 1,700 euros.

We also got a look at the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro via leaked renders. The new design is more rounded at the corners and moves from a boxy look to a curvier one. Camera Island is different, albeit unmistakably pixelated. The Pixel 8 Pro is rumored to have a 6.52-inch display – smaller than the Pixel 7 Pro’s 6.7-inch display. The Pixel 7 has a 5.8-inch display, which is smaller than the Pixel 7’s 6.3-inch display.

Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 7+ gen 2. Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 promises significant improvements in performance and efficiency. Kryo’s main CPU core is clocked at 2.91GHz, and the full 1+3+4 CPU package offers over a 50% performance jump over the SD7 Gen 1. The performance of the unnamed Adreno GPU, on the other hand, is doubled. The efficiency improvements are slightly more modest – 13% in different scenarios. We hope this chipset makes it to more phones than its predecessor.

That’s the recap for this week. You can check out the full list of top stories below.

Pair pack IP67 waterproof, 120 Hz Super AMOLED screens, 5,000 mAh batteries.

It looks just like the Pixel 7.

The phone boots a custom Android 12 interface with its own app store that doesn’t include games and short video apps.

Prices are higher than the A53 and A33 last year, but not as high as some rumors claimed.

Today was a very pixelated day in leak mode.

According to the latest rumors, it will come with a 5.8-inch display.

The upcoming Infinix GT range is said to replace the Zero series.

It’s the same hardware as the consumer S23 models, but with extra layers of security and features for large enterprise IT departments.

The pair is expected to be released on March 16.

The company is bringing back software-enhanced moon images.

Qualcomm is skipping the two releases of the Snapdragon 7 series and going straight to the SD7+ Gen 2 version.

There are posters on social media.

The duo is already available in France and will take a week or two to start shipping to other territories.

Both devices are now 3C certified.

It appears to be a version of last year’s Realme 9i 5G.

Is Samsung’s Moon Shot feature fake? What even is a lie these days?

This is the third release of these devices, believe it or not.

A bunch of comparison pictures appeared today.

Reuters sources and government officials were conflicted about the upcoming changes.

The phone costs INR 7,699 which is around $90.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know what the gift will be.

The phone should soon join the Korean company’s lineup alongside the Galaxy A34 and A54.

You can save a lot of money with this route.

Note that this is not the Nord 3 or even the recently leaked Nord CE 3, but the new CE Lite model.

The phone should have a camera + 3D DoF sensor on the front, similar to the P40. Unlike the P40, the pill-shaped hole is in the middle.
