Sony Xperia Z7 Release Date Rumors Q1 2017 – Z7, Z7 Mini, and Z7 Premium

Sony has been somewhat unpredictable over the course of the last couple of Xperia Z smartphones as they seem to be doing what many said they wouldn’t be doing. It all started just after the Xperia Z4 launched as it was believed that Sony Inc was moving away from launching two flagships per year.

This was very soon dismissed as the surprise release of the Xperia Z5 months later which was more of a remake then an entirely new concept. This leads us into the present day with the Xperia Z6 believed to debut during the 1st ½ of 2016 and new Sony Xperia Z7 release date rumors.

With Sony once being one of the most prominent smartphone manufacturers globally it was believed they would be getting out of mobile manufacturing all-together, but now we know this isn’t the case with new rumors coming in on the upcoming Sony Xperia Z7. The Japanese mobile manufacturer has seen some new innovations in the past couple of Xperia smartphones, and the same is expected with the 2017 release of the Xperia Z7.

We’re now hearing something a bit more definitive as rumors suggest the Xperia Z7 release date will be during Q1 of 2017. While this has yet to be confirmed, it seems highly likely as Sony is looking to once again looking to become an industry leader. We’re hearing more power, and cooler processor, and a stunning 30MP are some of the goodies in-store for us.

It sounds as though the Xperia Z7 will make it to all markets worldwide, despite early rumors suggesting otherwise. Aside from the standard Z7, we’re also likely to see a Mini and larger Premium model. The Z7 could feature a 4K 5.2” display running Qualcomm’s 820 SoC on-board, along with a 30MP rear-facing camera.

We’re still holding out for the possibility of seeing the next generation Snapdragon processor, but the 830 SoC doesn’t look to be ready until the Z7 debuts. The Sony Xperia Z7 Mini is likely to be a smaller variant coming in at 4.6 inches while a Xperia Z7 Premium could be significantly larger with a 5.9” display.

We’ll still waiting for the confirmations, and as soon as we get more on the Xperia Z7 release date along with all specifications you can bet you’ll set it here first.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Edge Features: Fingerprint Scanner Integrated with the Display

According to the Chinese website Weibo, Samsung is planning to integrate the fingerprint scanner with the 4K display. It will result in the removal of the home button. It will enable Samsung to increase the display size without changing the dimension.

XiaoMI is Working on FleXible Screen Technology

A few days ago we reported on a new patent from LG that appears to show a transparent, foldable display to work on a device similar to a book. That news wasn’t new for LG, as we knew at CES this year that the company expects to be producing flexible screens by 2017.

xiaomi-flexible-screen

Both Samsung and Lenovo have showcased similar technology, but now it looks like Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has the same idea.

A concept from the company has leaked that appears to show a display that bends in all directions, not unlike paper. Two separate renders were leaked on Baidu.

The screen appears to be flexible and can be bent up or down, left or right.

While these bendable and foldable concepts are interesting, it isn’t something you should expect to see anytime soon. It’s one thing to spend tons of money and time to produce an awesome proof of concept, but if there’s no way to bring that technology to mass production in a cost-effective manner, it’ll remain out of the hands of the general public for a while longer.

2017 Holden Australia will be discontinued

The move will result in nearly 2,900 people losing their jobs.

The firm said a strong Australian currency, high manufacturing costs and a small domestic market were among the reasons behind its decision Wholesale Mobile phone spare parts repairing tools accessories.

Holden, which has made cars in Australia for nearly 65 years, will retain its sales unit and a parts distribution centre in Australia.

“The decision to end manufacturing in Australia reflects the perfect storm of negative influences the automotive industry faces in the country,” GM chief executive Dan Akerson said in a statement.

“This includes the sustained strength of the Australian dollar, high cost of production, small domestic market and arguably the most competitive and fragmented auto market in the world.”

Carmakers in Australia have been struggling for some time, despite the government extending support to the industry via subsidies over the past few years.

However, there has been a debate over whether the government should continue to provide support to the sector.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared last week that there would be no more taxpayer assistance Wholesale Charging Port and Headphone Jack Flex Cable For iPhone 5.

The government had also increased pressure on Holden in recent days to clarify its future plans for Australia.

Dave Smith, national secretary of the vehicle division at Australian Manufacturing Workers Union, said the government’s push had influenced Holden’s move.

“I believe the decision’s been prompted by the behaviour of the government yesterday,” he told the ABC.

“Unfortunately, they’ve been let down by a government that wouldn’t back them in.”

iPhone 8 concept is the most beautiful smartphone

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might represent the fastest-selling smartphone duo of all time, but some people find certain aspects of the phones’ design to be “appalling.” We also discussed some questionable design decisions in our in-depth iPhone 6 review, though we didn’t feel quite that strongly about them. Either way, it makes sense that people would begin looking toward the future in search of new iPhone designs, since not everyone is happy with the look of the current iPhones.

Apple-iPhone-8-2016-2017-2018-2019-2020

Now, a new iPhone concept attempts to look beyond the next few years, where Apple’s iPhone of the future is the most beautiful handset the world has ever seen.

Forget next year’s iPhone 6s. Forget the iPhone 7 expected in 2016 and its sequel, which will likely debut in 2018. A graphic designer who goes by “Steel Drake” took to Behance earlier this week to share his vision of the iPhone 8, a device that likely won’t debut until sometime in 2019.

iPhone-8-2016

And if Apple’s actual iPhone 8 looks anything like Drake’s vision, 2019 can’t get here soon enough.

Via Concept Phones, the concept renders on Behance show a unibody smartphone case formed from a single piece of glass that covers the front and back of the iPhone, and also wraps around the top and bottom of the device. Aluminum inserts on the sides are then home to buttons and antennas.

A design like this is absolutely outside the scope of reality in 2014, but a lot can happen in five years.

Several additional images of Steel Drake’s iPhone 8 concept follow below, and the rest can be seen by following the link down in our source section.

EU International Roaming Charges to Stay Until 2017

Britons will face higher charges for using their mobile phone usage overseas until 2017, it has been confirmed, after 12 hours of wrangling between European Union (EU) member states finally yielded a deadline for the end of the ‘bill-shock’ era.

EU-international-holiday-roaming-charges-2017

Roaming charges were supposed to be scrapped this year. But to the surprise of consumer bodie, the EU reneged on its plans.

Keen to avoid hefty charges for using your phone overseas? Find out how in our guide to roaming charges: International roaming charges explained.

It’s thought the scheme was derailed by member states whose hard-hit economies are heavily dependent on tourism.

However, the new proposal is for an EU-wide ban on international roaming charges to come into force from June 15th 2017.

The commission also agreed to a universal drop in the price of roaming in all 28 EU nations in the interim.

From April, data will be capped at five euro cents (4p) per megabyte, with calls pegged at a maximum rate of five cents per minute. Texts will fall to two cent per message.

The mooted prices are about a quarter of their current levels.

But before you start to look forward to a time when roaming charges are as dead as disco and you can roam freer than The Wombles, it’s worth remembering just how quick the EU was to perform a volte face on its long-stated aim to be rid of roaming charges this year.

With good reason, uSwitch mobiles don Ernest Doku gave the announcement a cautious welcome.

He said: “We’ve heard this before. Data roaming charges were due to be abolished in the EU at the end of 2015 and the U-turn confused and frustrated people.

“Mid 2017 is a long way off, particularly when a fifth of UK holidaymakers have returned home from an EU trip in the past year to find their bill was, on average, £61 higher than usual – amounting to £573 million collectively.

“Of these, around one in six had to pay upwards of £100 on top of their normal bill.”

Doku added: “Let’s hope there’ll be no more backtracking after Europe’s mobile networks have had their say.

“The ‘safeguards’ to address the recovery of costs by operators will have to be suitably robust to financially protect mobile customers and make sure bills don’t rise.”

The EU also announced fresh rules enshrining net neutrality – the principle that all web traffic is treated equally by broadband providers.

According to the commission, these will protect the “right of every European to access Internet content, without discrimination”.

Audi is sending a Quattro rover to the moon for the Google Lunar XPrize

Google is funding a $30 million new-age space race, a competition to see who can be the first to put a rover on the moon and cover 500 meters across the lunar surface, all while beaming back high-definition footage to Earth. A series of independent teams around the world are competing, and Audi just got in the game in a big way. The car manufacturer announced Thursday that is has signed on with the German team Part Time Scientists.

Audi-send-quattro-moon-google-xprize

We visited Part Time Scientists last year to check out an earlier version of their four-wheel-drive rover as it motored across a simulated lunar environment, testing to ensure the rover’s optical systems would work in the harsh conditions on the moon.

The rover shall henceforth be known as the Audi Lunar Quattro. It certainly fulfills the naming criteria, with four-wheel independent drive, and I’d say the brushed aluminum finish fits quite neatly within the Audi aesthetic, too.

Audi said in a press release Thursday it is supporting the Part Time Scientists with its knowledge in several tech fields, “from quattro all-wheel drive and lightweight construction to electric mobility and piloted driving.” In addition to know-how, Audi will hopefully give the team the funding it needs to get their rover up where it belongs.

Audi and Part Time Scientists hope to launch to the moon in 2017. But, with two other GLXP teams, Astrobotic and Hakuto, planning to make their launch in 2016, Audi may be entering the race a little bit late. Regardless of who gets there first, we all win.

Audi and Part Time Scientists hope to launch the rover to the moon in 2017.

Nintendo to release five HIT smartphone games by 2017

Today, Nintendo released the financial results briefing for the end of the last fiscal year. It’s largely filled with graphs and boring business talk, but one point stood out as particularly noteworthy. We already knew that Nintendo is working with DeNA to release smartphone games, but it’s actually going a step further, and giving us a rough timeline for the releases.

Nintendo-release-five-HIT-smartphone-games-2017

On the third page of today’s investor relations release, Nintendo announced that it only plans on shipping approximately five mobile titles between now and March 31st of 2017. A line-up like that sounds incredibly sparse, and that leads credence to the idea that Nintendo isn’t totally on board with this whole “app store” thing.

After paying lip service to the phone games, the report immediately follows up with, “Nintendo continues to have strong passion and believes in the promising prospects for the future of our dedicated video game system business.” If you weren’t already sure, Nintendo‘s bread and butter is its hardware, so don’t expect that to change in the least. If anything, the promise of smartphone games seems to be a ploy to calm the nerves of antsy stock holders.

Interestingly, Nintendo opted to get out in front of the issue right away. In anticipation of criticism, Nintendo preemptively responds “you may think it is a small number, [but we] aim to make each title a hit…” It goes on to poo-poo idea of simply porting existing games onto phones, and emphasizes that Nintendo is only interested in making mobile games that make sense on the hardware. And considering Nintendo’s track record of using quirky (or gimmicky) hardware functionality in its titles, that’s not much of a surprise.

I have no doubt that Nintendo wants to leverage the massive smartphone install base to its advantage, but I’m skeptical about how dedicated it is to actually shipping meaningful games. Frankly, I think the partnership with DeNA is telling. If Nintendo enthusiastically wanted to make games for phones, there’s no way it’d be having a third-party do so much of the heavy lifting.

Also, it seems that Nintendo can’t bring itself to mention the phone games without bringing up the NX — the next-gen console currently being worked on in Kyoto. Nintendo clearly has no interest in leaving the hardware market, and all of this talk about smartphone games seems to be done through gritted teeth.

It’s not all bad news, though. On the upside, the Amiibos seem to be selling like hotcakes. Unfortunately, the supply chain is having issues. Rarity is good to a certain point, but there is a limit. Just like we learned with the Wii, long-term supply problems leaves money on the table, and allows competitors to swoop in. Activision, Disney, and Lego are already players in the toys-to-life market, and it’s only a matter of time before it gets even more crowded. Nintendo needs to get its act together before the novelty wears off.
