You get that sad shallow feeling in your heart as you remember how you could have prevented the phone from getting missing and those your pictures; yes those ones that seemed so cool that they’ll get 200+ comments .

The one that’s even more painful, is if it’s a phone of almost N100k and your contacts weren’t even backed up. You lost the contact of that new babe you were trying to spin all these weeks and she finally gave you her number.

I believe you’ve been in that position before so  let me go straight to how you can track your phone in Nigeria when it gets missing. Unlike Apple’s iCloud lock that protects their smartphones whenever it gets missing the only available tracking service that is available by default for all android smartphones is Google’s find my device feature which only locates your device in the last location it was last online.

You cannot remotely wipe your device with the feature if your phone is offline so the feauture becomes almost practically useless in most cases and tracking your phone in Nigeria with it becomes practically impossible.

PINS Solutions is a mobile tracking service tailored specifically for tracking devices within Nigeria and they work hand in hand with Telecom Companies and law enforcement agencies to make sure you are able to track your device.

Here’s a run down of  feautures of the PINs App –

Sleek design but should you buy it? Infinix Note 7 - Full specs, Features & Cost in Nigeria 19

Chinese conglomerate Transsion Holdings enjoys a moderate foothold in Nigeria’s mobile phone market alongside its Itel and Tecno brands, and also has one of the country’s top artists in an ambassadorship role. With well received range of devices to it’s name which the S, Hot and Note series are all huge representatives.

Now, the company’s Infinix brand has launched the successor to its Note budget smartphone – the Infinix Note 7 and Note 7 Lite. Both falling within the budget smartphone segment, with features that are intended to match the current competition.

Infinix Note 7 Lite specs

The infinix Note series smartphone has no doubt always captured the interest of the public especially with it’s sleek design build and camera system but with the many devices churn out lately were left wondering if the new Note 7 is really a necessary upgrade now or are we left paying for yet another crap?

Infinix Note 7 Specifications and Features

The smartphone design comes quite impressive with it’s sleek build and amazing screen-to-body ratio which means we get less bezels and just that punch hole front camera sitting all the way to the top left.

Infinix Note 7 smartphone has a 6.95 inches IPS LCD display. It measures 173.4 mm x 79 mm x 8.8 mm and weighs . The screen has a resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels and 258 ppi pixel density.

But then why is all this beauty being enclosed in an extreme plastic body?

The fact Infinix continues making smartphones with plastic components and tagging them all up with huge market price doesn’t bode well for the Nigerian market going forward especially with major competitors like Xiaomi lurking in the background.

Again, that’s your call to make there.

Infinix Note 7 smartphone runs on Android v10 (Q) operating system with Infinix 6.0 custom skin slapped ontop. The device is powered by Octa core (2 GHz, Dual core, Cortex A75 + 1.7 GHz, Hexa Core, Cortex A55) processor and runs on the MediaTek Helio G70 Chipset and Mali-G52 2EEMC2 GPU.

On camera department, infinix Note 7 users get a quad camera that consists of 48 MP (wide) + 2 MP (macro) + 2 MP (depth) + 2 MP (dedicated video camera) with features like Fixed Focus, Quad-LED flash, panorama,HDR, etc. The front camera consist of a 16 MP camera(wide).

The Infinix Note 7 smartphone is fueled with a non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery + Fast charging 18W. It has 4 GB and 6 GB as RAM options and a 64 GB or 128 GB available internal storage.

You’re assured never to run out of juice whilst you multitask on this amazing device right?

The device is integrated with a loudspeaker with dual speakers and a 3.5mm jack. Connectivity features include; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, hotspot, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS with A-GPS, Radio, Volte and USB.The phone handles Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by).

Available sensors include Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, proximity, and compass.

Infinix Note 7 price & availability in Nigeria

Infinix Note 7 specs, price in Nigeria

The infinix Note 7 device was launched in April in the Nigerian market and is therefore available for order from any of their major stores – Xspark for N78,000.

There’s also a Note 7 Lite version which appears to be a toned din version of the base device.

The available color options are Bolivia Blue, Aether Black and Forest Green.

Should you buy it?

The Infinix Note 5 was a huge success and the Note 7 unarguably promises even more with suspicions of a Coning Gorilla glass, but from a mid-range user perspective it is more stringent they start prioritizing function over fancy.

Having a mid-range device with plastic components is no big deal at least Samsung intentionally do that on their A-series but then you have to look at the competition.

Also, the world don’t need to hit the caves for protection over Covid-19 before Transsion starts making a smartphone with a Snapdragon SOc.

Of course, these are tiny details but then, the Infinix Note 7 device promises a great mid-range experience especially with that Huawei Mate 30-esque camera arrangement. Hehehe

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leaked online with alleged Galaxy S20 camera setup

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leaked online with alleged Galaxy S20 camera setup 22

As it’s always the case with every new smartphone release; there’s always this excitement with every sneak peak at the details before launch.

We saw that with the Galaxy S20 lineup and looks like the doers have again gone blockbuster with the Samsung Galaxy S20 and several details you might want to know.

While speculations regarding the launch timeline of the phone had been happening, this for the first time that alleged renders of Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone have been reported.

And who says it doesn’t look pretty much like the S20??!!

The renders come from Pigtou who claims that these renders are based on drawings obtained by the outlet’s sources and not conceptual.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 leaked specs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 rendered spec and features

The expected flagship unsurprisingly looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with major exception being the boxier appearance and the square corners which is the case with all Note series.

The devices dimensions are 161.8 x 75.3 x 8.5mm, which is roughly the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ or if you want to be more precise, a little more than half a millimitre thicker. The dimensions of the camera module are even reported as well: 38.1mm by 21.9mm.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ are expected to arrive with the same storage allocations as the Galaxy S20 lineup, running either the Snapdragon 865 or the Exynos 990.

The Galaxy Note20 and Note20+ have previously been rumored to come with 4000 mAh and 4500 mAh batteries, respectively.

What better time to make all our wishes come true…

A larger Samsung Galaxy Note20+ much bigger than the Galaxy S20 is expected as well, which will be quite interesting right.

We always love it bigger…

With the dimensions mentioned above (of the Note20), the report suggests it might be 6.7-inches diagonally, and the renders show the display is totally flat. We enjoy the idea that a Note device will no longer have curved edges. It’ll make it easier to use the S-Pen with

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specifications

The S Pen location has also changed from the right to the left, which is likely what Samsung needed to do to get all the physical buttons over to the right side. The SIM tray is at the top of the device.

The power button also makes its return to the right hand side of the smartphone after an unsuccessful trial on the left with the Galaxy Note 10+.

Other minor tweaks are always what we have come to expect from flagship smartphone upgrades.

Just Ask Apple and their iPhones users…

When is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 launch event

The Galaxy S and Note series have always been an integral part of the Hong Kong based smartphone producer, in fact they are the only Samsung products that do get a official physical launch.

These devices have seen launch venues from New York, London and even Seoul.

However, the situation is beyond the control of the company as COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to stay indoors as much as possible.

Though nothing confirmed yet, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 is expected sometime in August during Samsung’s bi-annual Unpacked event. Only this time, we can expect an only-Virtual launch event.
