Nokia 8 Pro with Snapdragon 845 and a penta-lens camera might be in the works

A “pro” version of the Nokia 8 is reportedly in the works, powered by the speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and sporting five cameras at the rear. Yes, five.

According to NokiaPowerUser, HMD Global, the parent company behind the rekindled use of the beloved Nokia brand, could be preparing a more advanced version of its current flagship and we might theoretically see this one at MWC 2018 though the device is allegedly prepped for an August-September release.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro

The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a 5.99″ Full HD+ display that boasts a resolution of 1080 by 2160 pixels and has the freshest octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset that is drawing power form a 4,000mAh battery.

The usual 12MP f/2.2 primary camera that Xiaomi uses lately, is paired with a 5MP f/2.0 depth sensor, while the front-facing camera offers the whopping 20MP resolution, and is aided by a flash.

CIA vs Huawei: intelligence agencies gang up on red menace like the Mate 10 Pro

In the latest installment of the “everybody is spying on us and we have to protect ourselves” drama, the US intelligence agencies have taken a firm stance against… the Kirin 970 chipset paired with dual f/1.6 aperture Leica cameras, and a 4000mAh battery. 

Yes, we are talking about the Mate 10 Pro, or other “products and services” made by Huawei or ZTE, lumped together in Tuesday’s Senate testimony by heads of security agencies like CIA, FBI, NSA, and others from the three-letter security soup that, thankfully, keeps us safe from election or NSA hacks.

Xperia XZ2 Pro spotted in HTML benchmark, long display reaffirmed

For a while now, we’ve been hearing whispers that Sony might just be jumping on the 18:9 bandwagon, joining the ranks of extra-wide, thin-bezeled phones with its next flagships. Well, now, we have a reiteration of that rumor through an alleged benchmark listing, which seems to spill some details about an Xperia XZ2 Pro.

First and foremost, the screengrab shows us that the new phone is running Android 8.1 Oreo. Then, we get a section saying “Screen size: 424 x 848 px”. Now, we doubt this is the actual screen resolution the phone would ship with — who knows what happened there — but …

The Huawei Mate 10 …

Honor has just confirmed a few of its smartphones are now being updated with the new EMUI 8. The company’s new user interface comes with Android Oreo, although some Honor smartphones will only be getting some of the EMUI 8’s features without Oreo.

Bragi Dash Pro wireless earphones Review


Helping to establish this newfound market for truly wireless headphones, Munich-based company Bragi was one of the pioneers to enter it back in late 2015 with its crowdfunded set, simply named “The Dash.” Since then, we’ve seen several companies inundate the space with their own offerings and moving the segment to all sorts of directions. Some of these shifts were good, some bad, but the evolution has been evident since the first batch of wireless headphones came out. Two years later, we’re testing out Bragi’s latest product, the Dash Pro, which is an ambitious effort to deliver the most intelligent …

Huawei has yet to penetrate the United States market, but after this year’s fiasco that seems like an impossible mission for the Chinese handset maker. The Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro may be great devices, but it looks like US carriers don’t want to sell them for various reasons (mostly political).

The new update labeled as build SP1C00 is being rolled out to …
