Samsung didn’t do anything breathtaking at this year’s MWC. The Seoul-based manufacturer postponed the unveiling of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but delighted some of its fans with the introduction of a new tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3.

A few days ago, we reported that US retailer Best Buy created a listing for the Tab S3 with a price tag of $599.99 for the Wi-Fi only version of the device, but no information was given on when we could actually expect to see the tablet hit the shelves in the country.

iPhone 8 OLED panel may drive up the price of Apple's next flagship

This may just be a rumor at this point, but we’re pretty sure no one wants to hear that the next iPhone might be even more expensive. Still, that’s exactly what is being claimed by the supply chain. And, the reason all comes down to the cost of the OLED panel that Apple is expected to be using in the iPhone 8. All that said, you might still be surprised at the effect on the price tag.

Sprint CFO: Unlimited war not sustainable; price hikes necessary down the road

Now that all four major U.S. carriers are offering unlimited data plans, is this a battle that will go on for years? Not according to Sprint CFO Tarek Robbiati. The executive says that  providing unlimited data at current prices cannot continue. Being CFO means that Robbiati is concerned with how Sprint is spending its money (and money coming from parent company SoftBank). He says that unlimited data requires more capital expenditures to make sure that an operator’s network can handle the increased capacity coming from unlimited subscribers.

Sprint is said to have a fairly large inventory …

Xiaomi Mi 6 rumor round-up: Specs, features, price and release date

It’s been roughly a year since Chinese superstar Xiaomi unveiled its not-too-shabby Xiaomi Mi 5. Equipped with excellent hardware, hip design, and an attractive price tag, it was one of the best Android devices you couldn’t get due to its rather limited availability.

LG chief tips an $800 price tag for the G6 in Korea, March 10 release date

With the newly announced G6, LG broke a number of traditions for its flagship line – the phone is no longer with a removable battery, and at the same time carries a chassis made out of premium, glass and metal materials.

The V series focuses more on multimedia experience such as audio. The G6 will appeal to mass-market users.LG pulled …
