We saw, in an extensive leak a few days ago, that Samsung might be playing it safe with the battery capacities on their upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphones. That makes sense, but a recent report surfaced which claims that Samsung’s new flagship devices may instead have bigger cells than their predecessors.
It would seem that 2017 will be the year of the bezel-less smartphone. As the biggest mobile event of the year, MWC 2017, draws closer, leaks from the likes of LG reveal that the company’s upcoming G6 flagship smartphone will severely cut down on screen bezels. Now, a new report from The Guardian hints at the fact that Samsung will debut their own version of a bezel-less display.
The Guardian are calling it an ‘infinity’ display and apparently it’s bezels are so thin, Samsung couldn’t even put their logo in front.
The Chinese New Year is almost upon us. It’s the time for festivities, fireworks, ang pows, the number 8, food and feeling guilty about eating too much food. It’s an awesome time of year.
But, one other tradition the Chinese like to observe during this auspicious time is to get their hands on new products. Clothes, accessories, shoes, gadgets, you name it, people are probably out queuing up to buy it.
If you’re buying tech, Lenovo wants your attention because they’re offering a whole bunch of goodies when you buy selected products this CNY season.
In the spirit of the Chinese New Year, local ride-hailing service Grab will now deliver Yee Sang straight to you via GrabCar.
LG is expected to show off something big on the eve of MWC 2017 at Barcelona. Likely to be its next flagship, the LG G6, this device would be a significant jump from its previous flagship especially the current modular G5.
If you’ve been on Facebook recently, you’ve probably seen a post of an infographic that was published in a local daily about electronic pick-pocketing. The infographic suggests that criminals can use smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices to steal card information, at times, without you even knowing it. Then, they can use that information to make transactions “without authorisation” as well as “clone cards”.
Well, we did some digging and here are 5 reasons why that’s simply untrue.
CES is a time for technological showcase. It’s a show where manufacturers from around the world gather and show off what they’re capable of. Although many of these devices don’t actually go on sale until much later in the year, it’s still really interesting to see these concepts and ideas.
However, a recent video has surfaced on YouTube, allegedly revealing that even Nokia had something on display in CES. And that something is their upcoming Android flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8.
Do you prefer a large smartphone with a big beautiful display or a small device that’s easy to pocket? That was always the trade-off we had to make when deciding on a device. But what if you could have both?
Well, that’s where the “foldable” smartphone idea comes into play. We saw Samsung patenting their idea of a foldable smartphone early last year, but we had no indication on when this device would see the light of day. If a recent report by The Korean Herald is to be believed that day could be somewhere in Q3 of 2017.
In the past few years, Huawei usually announces their wearables and tablets at Mobile World Congress. For the upcoming one that’s happening next month, the Chinese smartphone maker is expected to announce their latest flagship which is likely to be the P10.
