Lenovo teases phone with the "highest ever" screen-to-body ratio

Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng has teased an upcoming flagship smartphone with around 95% screen-to-body ratio, perhaps even higher. Cheng posted the teaser image to the left (or above if you’re on a phone) and asked fans to guess what screen-to-body ratio the device will have: a) 80-84%, b) 85-89%, c) 90-94%, or d) 95%. It’s kind of hard to judge by the image, given the deliberate crop, but it’s a relatively safe bet that Lenovo’s VP wouldn’t be teasing it this way if the company wasn’t capable of producing something in the 95% range.

Speaking of the way the image is cropped, …


Nokia teases revival of the Nokia N8 for China, set to be unveiled soon

HMD Global’s next revival could see the return of the Nokia N name. Ever since the Finnish company acquired the rights to the Nokia brand, it has chosen to take advantage of some of the company’s more historical devices.
With Nokia’s return last year, HMD Global chose to revive the popular Nokia 3310, while earlier on this year, at MWC, the brand introduced an updated Nokia 8110, also known as the banana phone. Now, however, just two short months later, it appears the popular brand could be about to revive yet another device.
In a teaser dropped …

Huawei teases the unique 3x zoom of P20, and studio-level portraits (videos)

In case you haven’t heard, the world’s second-largest Android maker will be second in line to announce its spring flagships, after Samsung is done and dusted with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ unveiling. Scheduled for March 27, the “mooore” event in Paris is expected to reveal the P20/Pro/Lite trio, all with notch-y screens, big batteries, and great cameras for their respective class.

How great? Well, how about triple-camera on the more expensive P20 and Pro models – a regular shooter, a monochromatic one (in a Huawei traditions), and a new telephoto lens – the best of all worlds. Well, …

Sony teases new curved design for upcoming phones

Sony is expected to launch a brand new phone in just about a week and the company has now teased that the device will come with a new design.

While Sony is one of the most prolific Android phone makers – it launched a new high-end phone every six months or so – its design has remained relatively unchanged. The rectangular looks and blocky design of its devices is actually one thing that makes a Sony phone easy to recognize among all others.
This new phone – likely to be called the Xperia XZ2 – seems to have a curved back, an important ergonomic feature …

Tweet from HTC teases new Vive model to be unveiled this coming Monday at CES


A tweet from HTC that was disseminated on Friday, hints that a new version of the HTC Vive VR headset is due to be unveiled this coming Monday. The tweet says “New Year’s Resolution” on top. The manufacturer cleverly had “New Year’s” out of focus with the word Resolution printed as sharp as a tack. This indicates that the new Vive will have a higher resolution display than the original model. Very smart, HTC.

Considering that Monday is the opening day of the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, we’d say that everything is coming together, pointing toward the unveiling of a new …

Amazon India teases new Samsung Galaxy On handset which could be a rebranded Galaxy J7 Pro

Amazon India has started teasing a new Samsung Galaxy On handset. Considering that the Galaxy On models have always been rebranded Galaxy J units, the question is which one of the latter models is getting turned on. Or should we say, turned into an On. Amazon’s Indian website mentions the phone’s “Superior Performance,” and a “New Way To Shop.” The latter could be hinting that the phone will be equipped with Samsung Pay or another mobile payment system. Since the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro is the only model in the series with support for the complete Samsung Pay package, that could be the phone that …

Before Samsung reveals its next big thing, the South Korean company offers us a sneak peek at what to expect from the Galaxy Note 8. Two new video teaser hint to some of the features that Samsung believes are worth marketing before the phablet goes official.

Of course, one of …

'Game of Thrones' prequel writer teases future shows and we're already stressed about it

TwitterFacebook

You might feel like it’s too soon to think about the Game of Thrones spinoffs HBO has in the pipeline, but consider this counterpoint: It’s not. 

Screenwriter Jane Goldman, who will pen at least one of the prequels planned for after Thrones concludes in 2018, spoke to IGN about what her series would include — and she kept it deliberately, maddeningly vague.

“I think as a book reader or as someone who watched the series, you would say, ‘Oh, that! OK.'” Goldman said of her series. “Yeah, it would be recognizable as a past event, but I think that’s probably as far as I can go.” Read more…
