This is further confirmed by 1 plus themselves, even the CEO coming out and saying: yes, they are returning to make some more affordable devices, which is music to the ears of a lot of people, because not many people actually buy. Those thousand dollar flagships is a very niche market in the Android world even the way, even though the oneplus a pro is a brilliant phone, not most people in Android world actually buy those phones. Well, here we have it. Those rumors that we got seem to be confirmed a new benchmark result from a new one plus phone, the one plus C. There is only about a month away now until the launch, although it is tipped for July. We don't know when in July, whether that's, the 1st of July or could be the very last day in July, but in any case it is now confirmed that the device will be using a mid range chipset from Snapdragon the Qualcomm 765. There were lots and lots of rumors before about the phone, possibly using a mediatek chipset like the demesne of T 1000, which is a powerful chipset it's, also 5 G compatible. But over recent weeks, rumors have all centered upon the Snapdragon chipset and then further centered on the 765 and that he is now confirmed by this benchmark result. The processor is clocked at 1.8 gigahertz, and so we know that this is in fact the snapdragon 765, not b7, 65 G, not the 76 8, but these 765, and I do really wonder how expensive these 765 G and seven six eight are in comparison to the 765, they are slightly more powerful, their overclocked versions and do give a little bit more power, and I wonder if oneplus couldn't have maybe just used those slightly more powerful chipsets and still given us a good price.
In any case, those chipsets still are mid range and don't, give you the full power of the flagship SOC in terms of gaming frame rates and also the very highest refresh rate options. So in normal data usage, actually the differences might be pretty small, but now it's very interesting, because now we have a mid range phone from oneplus and there's, only one main point in the mid range, and that is price, and so we know the chipset. We know it's going to have a good design with a 90 Hertz OLED screen. Now we just think about the prior speakers in the mid range. There is so much competition and price is a big factor. We'Re gon na find out very soon what that price is through leaks, I'm. Sure, also in your news today, Sharmini band 5, the official launch has been revealed, is going to be the 11th of June for this new device. There are a couple of different pictures confirming this, including on shammies shopping app in China, giving us the date of the 11th, and we found out some more info about the band. So, apparently, you will be able to link it up with your smartphone and take pictures using the band from your smartphone. So a remote control using your fitness band being able to press the shutter, which is definitely cool. If you want to place your phone somewhere else. Being able to control it on your fitness band is definitely a good thing and there is also support for a few more exercise.
Options like yoga, indoor, cycling and a few others as well. So definitely a upgrade in the me band 5 it's going to be a really popular device, and now we know during the 11th in China anyway definitely coming outside of China. This one will be a bit after the Chinese launch, though, and to finish off your news today, we've got the redmi 9 series leaked everywhere online. Thanks to this, leaker on Twitter looks like there are going to be four options in the series. These are all going to be using media tech chipsets all going to have about a six and a half inch screen with really big batteries and multiple cameras. So you can't really ask more than that in a budget device. The redmi number the series, so the Rebney 8, was one of the. If knows the best selling Android phone last time around so yeah. Definitely a popular phone and looks like the next generation with four different models are coming soon. So we should see some launches of these phones in the near future anyway.
