This Redmi 6 picture leak hints at Xiaomi notch takeover, specs in tow


After invading Europe this week, Xiaomi will hopefully continue its march towards US shores, as its phones are some of the best value-for-money offerings there are currently, and recently its boss vouched to never cross the 5% profit threshold. The Mi Mix 2s, for instance, which has 82% screen-to-body ratio even without sporting a notch, comes with Snapdragon 845 processor, a ceramic body, and starts from 499 EUR/USD, while the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which the OnePlus 6 holds nothing against but the faster chipset, can be had for half that.

That is why it is mildly exciting when a new Xiaomi …

Samsung is about to officially introduce the Galaxy A6 and A6+, two mid-range Android smartphones that are likely to make their debut in Asia. There’s no doubt that they will be available worldwide at some point, but chances are Samsung won’t bring them to the US.

HMD is expected to introduce its new wave of smartphones revealed last month at Mobile World Congress 2018 this spring. Among them, the Nokia 7 Plus is one of the phones that we can’t wait get our hands on (actually, we already did).

Samsung brought 'almost finished' foldable Galaxy X to CES, 7.3" display in tow

Where there is smoke, there is probably fire, and we’ve been hearing about Samsung’s foldable phone in the last two days more than in the last two months. Turns out that Samsung has actually brought the phone, and showcased it to interested partners at the CES 2018 expo. Granted, Samsung has done this at the previous CES, too, but now the phone looked “almost finished,” tipped insiders, at least from a hardware standpoint, and ready for mass production in November.
Samsung brought both infolding and outfolding prototypes, but will likely retail the infolding type, …

LG G7 release date set for mid-March, OLED display and 6GB RAM in tow

While we were musing yesterday whether the upcoming LG G7 will sport a Snapdragon 835 or 845 chipset, based on its official listing on LG’s UK website under the Quick Charge 4.0 category, a Korean publication is spilling the beans on its specs and even release date. 

It turns out that the G7 may ship with Snapdragon 845, after all, which would be a huge jump from the 821 in the G6, but there are plenty of other novelties to look forward to. The sources claim that, in addition, G7 will sport 6GB RAM, shooting it directly into the flagship ranks where it belongs. Another nice …

This report comes from Korean media, and sounds like a laundry list of who is who in Samsung’s supply chain, detailing the new features that will land with the S9 and S9+.
First off, the speculation that the new top-end Galaxies will sport a stacked system board that saves on interior …

Deal: Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro now comes with free U Flex headphones ($80 value) in tow

When Samsung’s Gear Fit 2 Pro went on pre-order in the United States back in September, customers who would get one would also receive the U Flex headphones for free. Once the wearable hit the shelves, the deal disappeared and customers who would purchase Gear Fit 2 Pro wouldn’t the pair of earphones for free.

However, since Samsung kicked off its “12 Days of Joy” promotional offer, every day there’s a new crazy deal that customers can take advantage of. Today’s deal brings back the pre-order offer that Samsung had available back in September, which means if you …
