Sure to be one of the most popular phones of the year, the duo boast 1080p 120Hz Super AMOLED displays, 5,000mAh batteries with 25W charging and IP67 water resistance. The Galaxy A54 has a smaller 6.4-inch display, a 50-megapixel main camera and a 5nm Exynos 1380 chipset. The A34 has a 6.6-inch display, a 48-megapixel main camera and a 6nm Dimensity 1080.

We’ve received a number of Google leaks this week. The Pixel 7a has been handled in the wild and even put up for sale as a prototype on eBay. It features a 6.1-inch display, 8GB of RAM, a Tensor G2 chipset and a 64MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The Pixel 7a will launch in June alongside the Google Pixel Fold, which we’re told will cost €1,700.
We also checked out Pixel 8 and 8 Pro through leaked renders. Rounder at the corners, the new design transitions from a boxy look to a curvier one. The camera island is different, but 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 will have a 5.8-inch display – smaller than the Pixel 7’s 6.3-inches.
Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2. The Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 promises significant performance and power efficiency improvements. The main Kryo CPU core is clocked at 2.91GHz and the entire 1+3+4 CPU package delivers a performance jump of over 50% compared to the SD7 Gen 1. An unnamed Adreno GPU, on the other hand, offers a 2x increase Performance increase. Efficiency gains are a bit more modest – 13% in different scenarios. We hope this chipset makes it to more phones than its predecessor.
