HTC U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording, new video teaser suggests

HTC wants us to get excited about its upcoming flagship smartphone – the HTC U 11. The handset will be officially announced next week, on May 16, but, before that, HTC released a new video teaser to keep our interest piqued.

HTC’s new video – embedded above – is quite short, and is accompanied by a “360 real-life recording” caption. From this, we can conclude that the U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording – or maybe 360-degree video recording, too? This is the second U 11 feature that HTC is (kind of) confirming, after the phone’s squeezable frame – apparently …

HTC U 11 video teaser released ahead of May 16 unveil

HTC has already confirmed it will announce its next flagship smartphone on May 16. The device will be launched on the market as HTC U 11, but we have yet to learn when exactly it will be available and how much it will cost.

Since HTC can’t tell us too much about the upcoming U 11 handset, the Taiwanese company released a video teaser that emphasizes on the smartphone’s unique touch-sensitive edges that can interpret gestures into various actions.

The HTC U 11 allows users to “squeeze” it in order to take advantage of this unique gesture system, so the video …

The HTC U (Ocean) will be unveiled on May 16, check out the official invitation and a teaser video

It appears that HTC has pretty much given up on subtlety at this point. We’ve just received an invitation to an event, which, unless the company is for some reason pulling the ol’ bait-and-switch, will surely be dedicated to the unveiling of the much-rumored HTC U (Ocean) flagship.

Let’s look at the clues: first off, there’s the tagline, “Squeeze for the brilliant”, which is… an interesting choice to say the least. It’s accompanied by the letter U as seen on the U Ultra and U Play’s branding materials, but here it’s also squished from the sides to …

New Samsung Galaxy S8 print teaser surfaces

This morning, Samsung revealed a new teaser for the Samsung Galaxy S8 in the form of a poster. In Korean, the poster reads “Completion and a New Start,” perhaps making a statement about last year’s issues with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The image on the teaser shows a person standing next to a smartphone shaped door. Outer Space beckons through the portal, with various planets and meteors making it through the door.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ should be unveiled on March 29th in New York City (which is March 30th in Korea thanks to the time difference). Pre-orders should …

Samsung Galaxy S8 teaser ad airs in South Korea, might be hinting at some interesting features

If you’ve lost count of all the rumors, leaks, and teasers about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, worry not – we did too. At this point, we can’t help but suspect that Samsung might be behind the barrage of leaked material, but whether intentional or not, the effect of this “campaign” has been clearly beneficial – our interest grows proportionally to the amount of released information.

The latest Galaxy S8 teaser video released in South Korea is a perfect example of the above statement – it doesn’t reveal that much at a first glance, yet it might hint at some interesting …

"Never Settle" teaser maybe hints at OnePlus 4 (OnePlus 5?). Or just a jet black color for an existing product

By now, anyone who dares call themselves a smartphone fan knows about OnePlus — the company that broke out with an extreme bang-for-the-buck flagship device, then stirred some controversy with a number of questionable giveaway contests, and finally hit all the right notes with its 3rd flagship, the OnePlus 3 (and even more so with it’s upgraded variant – the 3T). Now, as these things go, the time for another refresh of the OnePlus line of devices is drawing near, and rumors are picking up.

First, we heard that the OnePlus 4 would have a massive 4,000 mAh battery and 6 GB or even 8 GB of …

You need to watch the 'Deadpool 2' teaser playing before 'Logan' right now, because it's just that perfect


For superheroes (and antiheroes), costume changes are like capes: visually striking and highly impractical. That’s the lesson Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool learns in this new Deadpool 2 teaser, which is now playing before screenings of Logan. 

In the clip, which Reynolds also shared on Twitter, Wade Wilson rushes into a phone booth for a pre-rescue quick change, and it…doesn’t go well. But hey, at least the theme to St. Elmo’s Fire gets some play? 

And in a fun meta twist, Logan pops up in a few places, too—check out the marquee sign behind the phone booth, along with some trash talk to go with it. Read more…

LG G6 teaser says that the upcoming flagship will be reliable

The LG G6 has a huge burden. After the LG G5’s failed attempt at offering modular accessories (and the subsequent success of the Moto Z’s modular build), the new flagship needs to present something that will make consumers reach for the phone. Power users, smartphone fans and general tech fanatics might want to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S8 to be launched, especially since that handset will be powered by the new Snapdragon 835 chipset. The LG G6 will sport the Snapdragon 821 SoC that is currently in use by a few top shelf models.

Sammy’s inability to keep the Galaxy Note 7 on the shelves …

BlackBerry Mercury Launch Date Revealed In Teaser Image Of Smartphone’s New Design

BlackBerry is preparing to officially unveil its next-generation flagship smartphone, the BlackBerry “Mercury.” A teaser from the company shows the QWERTY-equipped handset will launch on Feb. 25 in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress 2017.


BlackBerry Gets Back In The Smartphone Game
While BlackBerry is no longer one of the top smartphone makers in the game, the company has loyal fans and new ones who want their smartphone to rock an old school physical QWERTY keyboard below the display. The company’s first Android smartphone, the BlackBerry Priv has made a name for itself ever since its release in 2015, thanks to the iconic BlackBerry physical QWERTY keyboard coupled with top of the line specs (at the time).

BlackBerry fans looking to get a new smartphone that closely resembles previous BlackBerry handsets will be delighted with the upcoming BlackBerry Mercury. The device isn’t expected to officially be named BlackBerry Mercury, as Mercury is an internal codename given to the device.

BlackBerry Mercury Brings Back Classic BlackBerry Design
What is supposedly a teaser of the smartphone’s new design and launch details has been leaked by BlackBerry and published online, and as you can see in the image above, there’s some important information. As you can see, BlackBerry is planning to announce its latest BlackBerry smartphone (notice Mercury is not mentioned) on Feb. 25 in Barcelona, in advance of MWC 2017.
The new BlackBerry smartphone will feature a metal build and what appears to be a carbon fiber back panel. The physical QWERTY keyboard graces the front and above that is a 4.5-inch Quad HD display, which also appears to confirm the handset will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The smartphone is expected to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, Adreno 506 GPU and 3 GB of RAM.

BlackBerry Mercury To Use Google Pixel’s Camera Sensors
The BlackBerry “Mercury” will reportedly feature an 18-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front-facing camera, supposedly using the same high-end and award-winning sensors used in Google’s Pixel smartphones. The handset will likely include 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, in addition to a microSD expansion slot. The smartphone’s fingerprint scanner has been embedded into the space key of the keyboard, and it’s believed the device will pack in a large 3,400 mAh non-removable battery and use a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.

BlackBerry 'Mercury' to be unveiled February 25th, according to teaser

We now know the date and time when BlackBerry is going to introduce the BlackBerry Mercury, according to a teaser that allegedly came from the company. Actually, the teaser itself looks legit especially because the BlackBerry Mercury name was not mentioned on it. While everyone has called the phone by that name, even BlackBerry, it is just a code name. The real name for the device should be announced when the phone becomes official.

So when will that be? The teaser shows that the last in-house phone to be designed by BlackBerry will see the light of day on February 25th, 2017. Mark the …
