Gizchina News of the week
We might see the device launching with Mediatek Dimensity 800 chipset along with a 5G support. Although we haven’t heard any concrete leak suggesting this. The device will arrive with a 6.81-inch display having Full HD+ resolution (i.e. 1080 x 2400 pixels). The chipset will be paired with 4GB/6GB/8GB RAM along with a 64GB/128GB/256GB onboard memory. Sadly, the memory configuration remains unknown.
In terms of optics, we’re looking at a quad rear camera module with a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP secondary lens, and two 2MP additional sensors. For selfies and video calling, there is a 16MP front snapper housed inside the punch-hole cutout. All of these are backed by a 4,200 mAh battery packed inside. There is no information on the wired charging speed. As expected, we will see Android 10 OS with a custom skin on top.
It is worth noting that the previous leaks and rumors point towards the dual-camera module on the Play 4 Pro variant. This doesn’t sit well consider the regular variant is touting quad cameras. We might see some more information coming up clearing this ambiguity. Whenever that happens, we will make sure to update our readers at the earliest.
