Not too long back HTC announced that they will be launching a brand new hero smartphone in an attempt to turn the company around as the HTC One M9 didn’t perform as well as expected. Now there are rumours that the so called hero phone that’s targeted to launch later this year will be called as the HTC Aero.
The much awaited OnePlus 2 finally has a launch date and its supposedly going to be the first ever phone launched in VR. Set to be launched on 27th July this year at 7PM Pacific Time (that’s about 10 AM Malaysian time the next day), the company has designed its own VR cardboard headset to let you “be there in person” with the OnePlus team and fans as the device is revealed.
The successor of the Moto G (2014) which is due to be launched any time now, has been spotted in the wild.
From what we can tell so far the device will have a revamped back design on top of some small changes for the device in general.
Two new OPPO devices have just been spotted in SIRIM’s database, and word on the wind says that the OPPO R7 lite and R7 Plus could be launching on 7th July, thanks to our tipster @KevinNgTK on twitter.
The phones, listed as the R7f and R7kf are likely to be OPPO’s R7 and R7 Plus and its great news that we could be getting them very soon. However we don’t know why we might not be getting the R7 at launch but the Lite version instead, if the launch event leak is real. Perhaps OPPO is planning a big reveal perhaps?
Nokia has just announced that they will be returning to the smartphone market come next year, despite repeatedly denying that they will be making a comeback.
Brand CEO Rajeev Suri states that they will be finding suitable partners to help produce the devices and they will be using the same strategy that they used for their N1 tablet to get back into the market. Basically what they will be doing is they will design the new products but won’t actually be making the products themselves despite having their branding.
It’s official, the OnePlus 2 is going to have a Snapdragon 810 CPU under the hood. It isn’t a massive surprise considering the original OnePlus had a Snapdragon running the show but we wonder how well it would do considering the Snapdragon 810 is notorious for overheating issues.
Getting ready for the upcoming Raya season, Samsung’s promotion this year is giving buyers a chance to walk away with a Mvyi along with the purchase of a brand new Samsung Galaxy device.

Apart from rumours that Microsoft’s coming flagships the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL will have USB Type-C connectors, 20 megapixel camera and Quad-HD displays, the latest one is pointing towards a triple-LED flash for the rear camera. A blurred out photo was put on Twitter which is said to be that very same camera.
The Samsung Galaxy A7 was supposedly one of the brand’s thinnest smartphones in the market but there’s a new contender for the title from Samsung which is the Samsung Galaxy A8 which is purportedly is just 5.9mm thick.
In terms of design it looks like it shares the same flat edge design as the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, but has some design influences from the Galaxy S6 as well. The frame generally looks like its will have the metal rim which is more or less Samsung’s signature styling. The device is rumoured to come in at 157.7 x 76.7 x 5.9mm and apparently is just 140g in weight; literally making it the slimmest smartphone Samsung has produced to date.
Huawei has released yet another image pointing towards the launch of the Honor 7 and is heavily hinting towards a fingerprint scanner. The aircraft grade metal clad device was originally hinted to be launching last week but for some reason the date was pushed to the end of the month.
