With most smartphone makers already settled on a yearly upgrade cycle and with some leaks and rumors, we already have a rough idea of when the most anticipated phones of 2018 will come. We know more about some devices than about others, and with so much time before the actual release things are surely subject to change, but if you want to get a general idea of what next …
Last week, Qualcomm announced the eventual Galaxy S9 chipset for the US models, Snapdragon 845. Previously, Samsung had given some details about its new Exynos 9810 processor, which, however, will most likely find its way into the global versions of the phone, as usual. What piqued our interest with the 845, however, was the promise for upgraded fast charging abilities, as the silicon has Quick Charge 4+ tech built in.
In a shift from its current design philosophy, in 2018, Sony
may release at least two Xperia smartphones that sport near-bezel-less
displays. As recently reported, one of these upcoming handsets could be a flagship
successor to this year’s Xperia XZ Premium.
Georgian* website Vortex.ge claims to have some details
about the design and features of Sony’s 2018 flagship smartphone, in addition to
info about the design of a second (non-flagship) Xperia.
Reportedly, the renders that we’re seeing in this article
are based on Sony’s own design drafts. The handset with less …
Android Go is not the only important thing announced by Google earlier today. An important improvement with the potential to impact a much larger pool of mobile phone users only briefly mentioned by Google.
Apparently, Google Assistant will be customized to work on feature phones. To show it’s serious about it, Google announced that it’s bringing its Assistant to a feature phone that’s only available in India, the Reliance JioPhone. The handset is powered by a custom operating system called KaiOS, based on Firefox OS, and has its own voice assistant – HelloJio. …
Samsung is no longer launching as many smartphone models
yearly as it did some time ago, but the company is still offering handsets for
all budgets. And we don’t think this will change anytime soon.
While working on high-end phones like the Galaxy S9, or on
mid-range models like the Galaxy A (2018) series, Samsung is also getting ready
to release new low-end handsets. One of the company’s upcoming low-end phones should
be the Galaxy J2 Pro (2018).
Thanks to a set of leaked renders, we can already take a
look at the design of the Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro (2018). According to …
As 2017 draws to a close, it’s time to take a look at the best Android phones of the year and the new iPhone models. It’s been one of the most eventful years for mobile tech in a long time, but there were two major new trends that shaped the world of smartphones in 2017:
Blu Products, the Miami-based company known for selling
affordable Android phones in the US (and not only), today released a software
update that’s angering a lot of users.
According to countless reports found on Reddit and other
forums, the update in question was sent over the air to owners of the Blu Life
One X2 (a mid-range handset launched last year for $200). By the looks of it, all
those who’ve downloaded the update couldn’t finish installing it. That’s because,
to finish the update, the phone asks for your password, but – likely because of
a major bug – it won’t accept it, no …
According to a report published on Monday by Bloomberg, the White House is so worried about leaks making their way to the media and foreign governments, that White House staffers may be disallowed from using their personal mobile phones to communicate. While President Trump hopes that this ban will put an end to the leaks that have infuriated him, it also will make it harder for White House staff to get in touch with family during the course of the day.
One anonymous official said that there are too many personal devices connected to the White House’s wireless network; unlike the phones …
