The Xiaomi Mi 9 is the latest line-up by Xiaomi which consists of three phones - the Mi 9 Transparent Edition, Mi 9 and the more affordable Mi 9 SE. The Mi series has been stellar offering by Xiaomi. The Chinese smartphone company has packed only the best when it comes to the Mi series of smartphones. Last time when Xiaomi launched the Mi 8, it saw astounding success in the markets where the brand launched it. Now, following up to its previous release, Xiaomi has launched the Mi 9 in China to further its line-up of the phones. Notably, Xiaomi has launched three variants of the Mi 9 in China. The first variant is the Mi 9 Transparent Edition, the standard Mi 9 and the smaller Mi 9 SE. While the Mi 9 bears a price tag of 2999 CNY, the Mi 9 transparent edition will set back by the buyers by 3999 CNY. The Mi 9 SE will be a more affordable offering at 1999 CNY. Fun2Ind.com

Xiaomi Mi 9: Specifications and Features

The newly launched Xiaomi Mi 9 features a 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display which has been manufactured by Samsung. Like you would expect, the Mi 9 debuts with a notch over a 19:9 aspect ratio screen which makes the Mi 9 boast of a 90.7% screen-to-body ratio. The back panel of the new Mi 9 has an attractive holographic design finish which reflects different colours depending on the angle of light falling on it. Xiaomi claims that it has used nano-level laser engraving and dual-layer nano-coating to accomplish this. For protection, the Mi 9 puts the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 to use on both the front and back side.

When it comes to performance, the Mi 9 packs ample power as it sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC which clocks a frequency of 2.4GHz. It is worth noting that this SoC by Qualcomm has been manufactured on the 7nm process and it is a 5G-ready chipset. The Mi 9 debuts in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants which pairs with 128GB of internal storage. mobask.com

When it is about camera and imaging, the Mi 9 packs a triple rear camera setup which is vertically stacked and consists of a 48MP primary sensor (Sony IMX586), a 16MP ultra wide-angle secondary sensor, and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. On the front, the phone flaunts a 20MP shooter for selfies. Further, Xiaomi has gone an extra step ahead to put the sapphire glass lens on the camera to protect it from scratches. The camera on this phone also comes enabled with 960fps slow motion and includes motion tracking capabilities. The phone also features improved image stabilisation and a Super Night Scene mode which would be helpful in low light photography.

Possibly, the only thing disappointing that you might find about the new Mi 9 is the measly 3,300mAh battery. On the software front, the phone boots Android 9 Pie based MIUI 10. For security purposes, the phone comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Some additional features of the Mi 9 include the IR blaster and the support for a dark mode.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Transparent Edition: Specifications and Features

Xiaomi’s Mi 9 Transparent Edition is the result of collaboration with the movie franchise from Disney, Alita: Battle Angel. The difference between the standard variant of the Mi 9 and the transparent edition is that the latter comes with an improved camera 48MP primary rear camera sensor, along with a 7P lens and f/1.47 aperture. The highlight, of course, as you would expect is that the phone features transparent back thus giving a glance of the phone’s internals and notching up the aesthetics. Under the hood, the Mi 9 Transparent edition rocks 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE: Specifications and Features

The Mi 9 SE is the most affordable among the three. The phone sports a 5.97-inch OLED display which comes with a notch on top. This device also uses an in-display fingerprint sensor for authentication. The Mi 9 SE packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM, 64GB and 128GB of internal storage and a power unit of 3070mAh. In terms of camera and imaging, the phone sports a triple rear camera setup which consists of 48MP+8MP+13MP sensors on the rear and a 20MP selfie shooter on the front.

Xiaomi Mi 9 Series: Pricing and Availability

The Xiaomi Mi 9 will be available for the buyers in three different colours of Lavender Violet, Ocean Blue, and Piano Black, and it will bear a price tag of 2999 CNY and 3299 CNY for 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB variants respectively. The Mi 9 Transparent Edition will be a little higher priced, and it will debut in 12GB+256GB variant option with a price tag of 3999 CNY. The most affordable of all, the Mi 9 SE will come in 6GB+64GB, and 6GB+128GB variants and the shelf price of the phone will be 1999 CNY and 2299 CNY respectively. Alongside these phones, Xiaomi has also announced the launch of a wireless power bank which would pack 10,000 mAh and would retail for 149 CNY.

The pre-sale for the Mi 9 is slated to begin at 6 PM in China today, and interested buyers will have to pay 100 CNY to pre-book the device.

Samsung has refreshed its smartphone line-up starting with the M-series, and now the company is gearing up to come up with A-series (2019) devices. We have already learned that Samsung is working on three devices – the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. Some of these smartphones have already been spotted in leaks, benchmarks and renders too. Now, a fresh leak spills the beans over the expected specifications and features too. msnTarGet.com

Samsung Galaxy A10 leaked specifications and features

According to a leak on MySmartPrice, the Galaxy A10 will be an entry-level model in the A-series, and will come with a plastic body. It will feature a 6.2-inch Infinity V display and have HD+ resolution. Under the hood, an Exynos 7884B SoC clocked at 1.6GHz is expected, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. Fun2Ind.com

Talking about cameras, a single 13-megapixel snapper at the back, and a 5-megapixel snapper on the front is likely to be in tow. The smartphone will lack a fingerprint scanner, but will come with face unlock feature. There will be two SIM card slots, and a dedicated micro SD card slot for further expansion. To keep things ticking, the smartphone will pack a 4,000mAh battery, but come with 5W charging over microUSB. soas.in

Samsung Galaxy A30 leaked specifications and features

Coming to Galaxy A30, the smartphone will come with 3D glossy back made from plastic material. There will be a 6.4-inch Infinity U super AMOLED display running at full HD+. It will be powered by an Exynos 7904 SoC paired with 3GB / 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB storage. In the photography department, a dual camera setup comprising of a 16-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide lens is expected. For selfies and video calling, a 16-megapixel front camera is likely to be in tow. mobask.com

To keep things ticking, a 4,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging over Type C will be in place. The smartphone is also likely to come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The leak also hints at Samsung Pay Mini, Bixby, Dolby Atmos and AR sticker support.

Samsung Galaxy A50 leaked specifications and features

Lastly, the flagship model in the series will reportedly pack an in-display fingerprint scanner. It will share the same design and display as the Galaxy A30. Under the hood, a it will be powered by an Exynos 9610 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, or 6GB RAM with 128GB storage. msnTarGet.com

In the photography department, a triple camera setup of 25-megapixel primary sensor, a secondary 5-megapixel depth sensor and a third 8-megapixel sensor with ultra-wide lens will be in tow. Up front, there will be a 25-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. Just like the other two A-series smartphones, the Galaxy A50 will also come with a 4,000mAh battery featuring 15W fast charging over Type C.

There is, however, one thing that the leak doesn’t clarify – the Android OS version that these phones will run on. Currently, the flagship smartphones are being updated to Android Pie OS, but the older devices are still stuck on Android Oreo. Even the recently launched Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 don’t come with Android Pie OS, which is something disappointing.

OnePlus has some plans for the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2019. No, the company isn’t launching the OnePlus 7 or the OnePlus 7T. OnePlus is gearing up to showcase its first ever 5G phone at the MWC 2019 event. OnePlus has now invited the media to experience the company’s prototype 5G smartphone at Qualcomm’s booth at the event. The OnePlus 5G prototype phone will be running on a fully functional network. OnePlus hasn’t officially talked about the showcasing of the 5G phone, but the words noted in the media invite reveals hints at it. The invite notes “5G gaming” which clearly hints at the OnePlus 5G phone. Reports suggest that at the MWC event OnePlus will just showcase the 5G phone and will officially launch the device later in the year. It is fully possible the company may showcase a 5G variant of the OnePlus 6T like how other manufacturers are doing currently. msnTarGet.com

  • The 5G Phone from OnePlus will not be the OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7T
  • OnePlus will likely launch three phones in 2019 including a 5G model

OnePlus 5G Phone Coming Later This Year

The words noted in the media invite hints that the OnePlus 5G phone may be targeted to the gamers out there or mostly the power users. To recollect, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau announced the coming of a 5G phone at Qualcomm Snapdragon summit where the chip maker launched the Snapdragon 855 SoC which is going to power most flagships this year including the most anticipated Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+. Even the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7T are said to be powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset but will be based on X24 modem. The OnePlus 5G phone will be based on Snapdragon X50 5G modem. Fun2Ind.com

The announcement of the 5G OnePlus phone showcasing was first revealed by folks at XDA Developers which noted, “OnePlus, at Qualcomm’s booth (Hall 3 Stand 3E10), invites all to connect and communicate with our community over a 5G network. Attendees will also be able to experience the capabilities of 5G gaming on a OnePlus 5G prototype.” MobAsk.com

OnePlus to Launch Three Phones in 2019

In 2019, OnePlus is expected to launch three phones, the OnePlus 7, the OnePlus 7T and the OnePlus 5G Phone. The company has previously confirmed that OnePlus will be among the first ones to launch a commercial 5G phone. Reports suggest that OnePlus may launch the OnePlus 5G in the first half of this year. As of now, there’s no report whether or not the OnePlus 5G phone – the company is yet to come up with a name for it – will come to India. For now, what we know is the OnePlus 5G phone will be launched in Europe in collaboration with telecom operator EE. SoAs.in

Meanwhile, along with OnePlus, several other smartphone makers like Huawei, Samsung, Vivo, LG, and ZTE are also working on a 5G smartphone to launch at the Mobile World Congress 2019. Xiaomi has a booth at the MWC 2019 where it’s expected to showcase a 5G model of the Mi Mix 3, while Vivo might display the 5G variant of its Nex Dual.

According to a recent IDC report, smartphone shipments grew in India by 10 percent. While smartphone shipments globally saw a decline, India continues to grow on the chart. Xiaomi leads the table with 29.9 market share in the country.

This week we have Redmi Note 7 and Vivo V15 Pro on top of the list.

Both the smartphones will launch in the country very soon. With MWC a few days away, soon some top smartphones will go official, including the next OnePlus flagship, Nokia 9 PureView and more. msnTarGet.com

Top 7 Trending Smartphones This Week: Vivo V15 Pro, Redmi Note 7, Oppo F11 Pro & More!
Let’s a take a look at the top trending smartphones this week.

Redmi Note 7

Xiaomi will launch its recently unveiled Redmi Note 7 in India soon. The company was expected to unveil the device in India in February, but according to the latest reports, the Redmi Note 7 launch has been delayed by a month. Apart from Redmi Note 7, the company may launch Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Go in the country, probably in March. Fun2Ind.com

Vivo V15 Pro

All set to launch on February 20, Vivo will be bringing the V11 Pro successor to India. Vivo V15 Pro is going to take a lot of inspiration from Vivo NEX. The smartphone will have a full-screen display with no notch, a pop up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint sensor, rear triple camera setup and more. The pre-orders start on February 15, and Vivi V15 Pro will go official on February 20. soas.in

Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

Samsung has confirmed the launch of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 series at the Unpacked event on February 20. The South Korean company also confirmed that there’s going to a special Galaxy S10 Plus edition with 12GB RAM and 1TB storage. The company will launch three smartphones at the event: Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10 Lite. mobask.com

Oppo F11 Pro

As per a recent leak, Oppo will also launch a full screen display smartphone in March in India. It’s the Oppo F11 Pro, and the smartphone may go official next month in the country. Oppo F11 Pro will come with a no notch full screen display, pop up selfie camera, in display fingerprint sensor and a 48MP rear sensor. The smartphone is expected to be priced around it’s upcoming co-branded Vivo V15 Pro.

OnePlus 7

OnePlus confirmed that it will hold an event at the upcoming MWC. While the rumours are already been topping the lists of upcoming OnePlus 7, many experts say its the OnePlus 5G smartphone. Whatever it be, the upcoming OnePlus flagship is expected to come with some of the latest technologies like a sliding camera module and the 30W Warp fast charging technology.

Huawei P30 Pro

With a few weeks away from launch, the Huawei P30 smartphones are in the news again. Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro is being tipped to come with at least three rear cameras and a water drop display. Though P30 Pro has been already leaked with a rear quad-camera setup with a case. Huawei P30 will have a 6-inch display, while the P30 Pro may have a larger display. Fun2Ind.com

Nokia 9 PureView

With couple of weeks left, the Nokia 9 PureView has been leaked in live images with five cameras and a 18:9 widescreen display. The Nokia 9 PureView will come with a no notch 5.99-inch Quad HD+ display. Nokia 9 PureView will go official on February 24 at the MWC 2019. At the same event, we may also get to see the first glimpses of Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 1 Plus.

Samsung had been playing a rather lackluster game in the budget smartphone segment in India which comprises of the smartphone market priced between 7k and 13k. And by this I mean it didn’t have smartphones in this segment that could compare to its competition in terms of the specs that were being offered. But it seems like Samsung has learnt from the past and is now ready to make amends in the segment. And this is rather clear in its introduction of the new Galaxy M series smartphones with much better specs than its predecessors. We have already reviewed the Galaxy M10 in detail and found it to be an impressive offering in its segment. Now, here’s my review of the Samsung Galaxy M20 which is the higher variant between the two M Series smartphones launched so far. msnTarGet.com

Design of the Samsung Galaxy M20

Right off the bat, the first aspect that anyone notices about a device is how it looks, and the Samsung Galaxy M20 shares its physical traits with affordable sibling Galaxy M10 and some of the other smartphones in this segment. It comes with a waterdrop notch like Honor 10 Lite, which has been termed as ‘Infinity-V’ and is a first for Samsung. As a matter of fact, this is the first time that the South Korean company has incorporated the notch design into its smartphones. It seems like an attempt from Samsung to incorporate itself into the segment by picking up design cues from other smartphones and pick up designs that are trending. Fun2Ind.com

Unlike other smartphones that are there in this category which include the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Honor 10 Lite which have metal or glass back panels, Samsung went for a polycarbonate back panel which has rounded corners to meld into the display. The back panel has the dual-camera setup in a vertical arrangement on the top left corner with the flash below it and the fingerprint sensor on down the middle. The device has two microphone openings, one on the top panel and another on the bottom beside the single speaker grille, 3.5mm port and a USB-C port. The volume rocker and the power button are on the right hand panel while the left panel houses the hybrid-SIM slot which has separate slots for two SIM cards and a MicroSD card of up to 256GB. MobAsk.com

Moving on to the display of the Galaxy M20, it features a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080p) PLS TFT display which is Samsung’s own technology similar to TFT. The color reproduction of the display is bright and typical of Samsung’s saturated displays, which is impressive by all means. One of the more appreciable aspects of the display is that it is quite bright and you would not have any any problem with its outdoor visibility.

There were two things that surprised me, which was how light the smartphone is considering that it is packing a 5,000mAh battery and is not much heavier than the 3,300mAh packing Galaxy Note 8 which I use as my daily driver. The other thing that surprised me in terms of the design of the smartphone is how well Samsung has incorporated a proximity sensor as well as ambient sensor on the upper thin bezel, and it surprisingly works well too. Soas.in

The volume rocker and the power key seems much better than the previous Samsung phones in this segment and are much more solid now without anything feeling loose. This has been typical in the mid ranged and the costlier Samsung smartphone, and the inclusion in the budget segment is an improvement of sorts for the company. The inclusion of Type-C for charging and interface with other devices is also an improvement and the fact that this comes with fast-charging capabilities also earns a thumbs up.

Booting up to the software of the Galaxy M20, I observed that Samsung has stuck to its Experience UI despite having introduced the new OneUI which has been professed as a big improvement over the previous one. Galaxy M20 does not yet have Android 9 Pie and is still stuck at Android 8.1 Oreo after the January 2019 security patch. The UI itself is no different from what we have seen in the previous Samsung devices, and we hope Samsung brings OneUI to this segment of devices as well.

Performance of the Samsung Galaxy M20

There are a few firsts for Samsung with the new Galaxy M smartphones and the inclusion of a whole new Samsung Exynos chipset in the Galaxy M20 is on of them. The Exynos 7904 processor that has been used in the Galaxy M20 is a new processor that has recently been launched by the Samsung. It is an octa-core processor which has two ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 1.8GHz for high power tasks and six ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz for the regular tasks. The processor uses Mali-G71 GPU which is efficient enough to run games like PUBG Mobile without a hitch on high graphics. Soas.in

The Samsung Galaxy M20 variant which I reviewed had 4GB RAM which was capable of handling heavy apps and switching between them frequently seemed snappy and went about without a hitch. Even using apps in the split screen view didn’t seem to deter performance of the device. One of the concerns that I had was whether the background apps are killed after a while, and it seems that it usually takes a long while before the app is killed and only an iteration is there in the background apps. I noticed that the smartphone produced negligible heat when playing games like Asphalt and PUBG Mobile even at longer stretches which is definitely one of the bigger positives considering how important smartphone gaming has become. Fun2Ind.com

Moving on to the battery performance of the Samsung Galaxy M20, it has been impressive to say the least. I will mention outright that generally I am not too heavy a smartphone user and in my regular medium use of the smartphone, it easily lasted 1.5 days with a single full charge. This includes a couple of PUBG matches a day, a couple of product shots, 30-40 minutes of streaming high quality video, browsing social media for the rest of the day. But to test out the extended battery capability of the device, I extended the usage and the gaming hours to match heavy usage and the battery still lasted about a day on a single charge.

Now coming to the Galaxy M20’s camera capabilities, I have to admit that I had expected much better results considering that Samsung excels in optics. It is one of the primary talking points of its higher end smartphones, the company never ceases to surprise me with its below-par optics in the budget segment. The daylight shots seem perfectly fine which is expected, but the quality deteriorates as the light intensity decreases and so does capturing correct colors. The rear-camera combo of 13 megapixel primary sensor with a lens of f/1.9 aperture and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor and 120 degree field of view lens. The front camera is not too better off and the software has a tendency to overexpose the background in bright light to adjust the skin tone, while in low light it has difficulty in maintaining accuracy. msnTarGet.com

The software integration of the Face Unlock is pretty accurate (slightly slow), but definitely better than the Galaxy M10. The fingerprint sensor is pretty snappy and seems at par with even costlier devices.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy M20 is a definite improvement over the previous Galaxy On series and Galaxy J series smartphones that we have seen. It shows that Samsung is willing to move towards making better phones for the budget segment, even though it has not reached there yet. The Galaxy M20 has impressive battery backup and the great display with performance which is quite up to the mark. But one of Samsung’s old faults of not incorporating better camera modules persists, considering the competing brands excel in the camera department especially.

In terms of the pricing, the variant I reviewed with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is priced at Rs 12,990 which seems like fair pricing for the device even when comparing its positives and negatives to smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2.

OnePlus is set to refresh its smartphone series in the first half of 2019. The company has already confirmed plans to launch 5G phone this year. The next flagship phone, dubbed as OnePlus 7, is expected to come with a range of new features including a new screen design and camera module.

You can also expect OnePlus 7 to come with the faster Snapdragon 855 processor. Note that this chipset is going to power the majority of flagship and premium phones this year. Expected list of Snapdragon 855 processor-based phones include Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. msnTarGet.com

Here’s what to expect from the OnePlus 6T successor.

OnePlus 7: Top 5 features expected from the next OnePlus flagship phone

New screen, camera design

OnePlus embraced notch screens with OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T phones. The notch, however, changed from the boat-like notch to the popular and much smaller waterdrop notch. OnePlus 7 is rumoured to completely ditch the notch and use a slider front-camera design. According to a recent leaked image, OnePlus 7 is going to feature pop-up selfie camera just like Vivo Nex or Honor Magic 2-style sliding top panel. The pop-up camera module also means OnePlus 7 will bring highest screen-to-body ratio ever on an OnePlus phone. soas.in

HDR Streaming

OnePlus users have long demanded Netflix’s HDR support on their flagship phones. The upcoming flagship phone will finally bring the feature. OnePlus co-founder in a recent company forum post sought feedback from users about adding HDR support on the company’s phones via app stub on Google Play Store. Fun2Ind.com

Pointing out the benefits of HDR support, Carl wrote, “Pros 1: Offer HDR streaming, which can offer our users a higher quality streaming experience. Pros 2: Unleash the full potential of our future smartphone hardware.”

Another company executive added in the same thread, “Hi everyone, we take this question seriously, so in order to have clear data pointing to how our community stands on it, we replaced a new form emphasizing the “could NOT be uninstalled” message. The previous form has been closed and saved for reference.”

“Plus, HDR streaming requires support both from hardware side and content providers side. Here we are talking about whether our future smartphone should support HDR streaming in this popular app,” he wrote. MobAsk.com

Warp Charge 30

OnePlus introduced ultra fast charging technology, Warp Charge 30, with OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. OnePlus claims the tech delivers much faster charging than Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on parameters of screen off charging and charging while gaming. The Warp Charge 30 could become a standard feature on 2019 OnePlus smartphones.

Camera sensors

As pointed out by Forbes, OnePlus has traditionally used Sony’s camera sensors on its flagship phones. With OnePlus 7, the company may use Sony’s IMX586 sensor which will pave way for up to 48-megapixel resolution. It’s worth pointing out that Huawei has already launched 48-megapixel camera phone, Honor View 20, with the same sensor. Xiaomi is also expected to use the sensor for an upgraded Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Apart from an advanced camera sensor, OnePlus may borrow Oppo’s 10X optical zoom camera for its new flagship phone. Oppo is expected to unveil the tech with a reference phone at the Mobile World Congress 2019.

5G

OnePlus has already confirmed its 2019 phone will support 5G network. OnePlus 7 with 5G is set to launch in Europe this year. The 5G variant, however, will be more expensive than the normal one.

There are some great mid-range smartphones available under 15,000 rupees in India currently. With top features and specs, these smartphones can easily fight against some of the higher priced flagships.

A highly competitive price category, there are some top phones you can buy under Rs 15,000.

Android Q: 6 likely features that will change the way you use your smartphone

Android Q: 6 likely features that will change the way you use your smartphone
Android Q: 6 likely features that will change the way you use your smartphone

1. Foldable phone support

Native foldable phone support is something that has the highest possibility of showing up in Android Q. The support has already been showcased by Android’s David Burke last year in a parallel event exactly when Samsung was revealing its first-ever foldable display. Native support will mean a cleaner and smoother layout of Android apps in foldable smartphones. Fun2Ind.com

2. Dark Mode 

System-wide dark mode is one of the features that is not yet official but Google has been indicating it since quite some time. The search giant in 2018 introduced Dark Mode in several of its apps, suggesting that it is serious about it and might just bring dark mode on the system level itself. SoAs.in

3. Enhanced PiP mode 

Enhanced PiP in Android Q could work in the similar fashion as what is seen in high-end Samsung smartphones these days. It will let you place the window of different apps on your screen, all of which will run simultaneously, making you more productive. MobAsk.com

4. Native support for facial recognition
In 2018 we saw several smartphone makers introducing facial recognition in their handsets. However, they would have to implement heavy interface changes for the support. With native support, it will be easier to use face recognition and more handsets will be able to support it. Fun2Ind.com

5. More permissions 

Some new permissions were found recently by XDA Developers in Android Q’s framework. This means that the OS will ask users to give apps access to what’s saved in the clipboard, something that is not possible now and gives every app the access to clipboard information. msnTarget.com

6. Support for downgrading any app 

As found by XDA Developers in Android Q’s framework, one might also be able to downgrade to the older app version. This is possible for now but only with Google’s own apps. As indicated in Android Q’s framework, the OS version may let you downgrade any app.
