Samsung Galaxy A35 5G to get upgraded camera, a 50-megapixel sensor
Samsung is bringing a meaningful camera upgrade to the upcoming Galaxy A35 5G. A new report reveals that the company’s new mid-range smartphone will have a 50-megapixel primary camera. Earlier mid-range Galaxy phones use 48 or 64-megapixel sensors.
Last year, Samsung’s Galaxy A54 5G switched to a 50-megapixel camera, ditching the conventional sensor. However, the Galaxy A35 5G appears to be sharing the same 50-megapixel primary camera as its elder sibling, the Galaxy A55 5G.
In particular, the South Korean tech giant may release these new mid-range phones in March 2024. The company is preparing to first unveil the Galaxy S24 series in January, a month earlier than its predecessor to to counter the Apple iPhone 15.
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.
