Starting this year, several smartphone makers have launched their latest flagship handsets including Samsung Galaxy S21, Xiaomi Mi 11, OnePlus 9, and many more. At the same time, some OEMs are still preparing to introduce their new premium phones as per their schedule.
However, Google is expected to unveil its new Pixel 6 devices in the near future. And a piece of new information coming from a Twitter post reveals that the US tech giant is in talks with the South Korean tech giant to bring Samsung’s camera sensor with its upcoming flagship lineup.
Recently, XDA Developers’ Editor-in-Chief, Mishaal Rahman has shared some code snippets, which are enough to confirm the existence of the Samsung camera sensor in the next Pixel smartphone.
Mishaal said that these snippets were discovered in GCam by a modder and this information is based on the fact Google added GBRG bayer pattern support for the Super Res Zoom algorithm.
A lot of Samsung image sensors have this pattern, so it's possible a future Pixel phone's main image sensor (or telephoto) will use a Samsung image sensor. Super Res Zoom in GCam 8.2 now works on Samsung image sensors without root.

Previously, it was reported that Google Pixel 6 is likely to equip a new camera lens instead of a Sony IMX363 sensor. It is worth mentioning that Google has been getting the main camera sensor from Sony since the Pixel 2.
Moreover, it is also worth noting that Super Res Zoom in GCam 8.2 can now be used on Samsung image sensors without root. However, this data is totally based on technical standards and we will be getting more new information on this matter in the coming days.
We’ll keep you posted whenever new info surfaces on the web.

Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: So Hot It’s On Fire! Literally.
Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro is a hot topic, why not it should be, it’s so hot (even on fire!). Following the release, some iPhone 15 Pro Max users complained about the overheating issues. Their device gets warm, even with no longer use cases or gaming, rendering them in big trouble.
Initial purchasers of the iPhone 15 Pro Max complain that their phone gets too hot within minutes. The phone’s temperature reaches a level where the iOS stops charging (if connected) until it decreases. Some report that the titanium body appears horribly hot, which is disappointing.
A user managed to check the temperature of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which registered over 100-degree Fahrenheit. The model is getting warm even without using it as well as sometimes minutes after connecting the USB C-Type charging cable.
Notably, Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max is equipped with A17 Pro chipset. This processor is manufactured by Taiwan’s TSMC on the cutting-edge 3nm process technology. Apple recommends users not charge their iPhone with Android’s USB C cable, while the overheating reports continue to emerge.

Rumor Mill Buzzing: Samsung Galaxy S24 Series May Hit Shelves in January 2024
Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 series in February, while the Galaxy S24 series is reportedly coming earlier. Recently, Korean media reported that the parts production for Samsung’s Galaxy S24 smartphones could begin in mid-October.
According to a reliable source, Samsung may launch the Galaxy S24 series in January 2024. The tipster claims the devices may be unveiled around January 18, but it’s not confirmed. Notably, Korean media reports that the S24 series will go official a month earlier than this year.
The South Korean tech giant believes that the early debut of its next-gen Galaxy S flagships will help counter the success of the iPhone 15 series. Following the release, Apple is securing outstanding consumer response towards its iPhone 15 series internationally.
Next year’s Galaxy S flagship lineup will present three models – S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra. Samsung appears to be bringing back the in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, but the Ultra will solely use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, manufactured by TSMC.
