One of Sony Mobile‘s biggest criticisms is of their apparent lack of desire to redesign their handsets — recycling the same old look over and over again. Well, it’s that and the fact that, up until recently, Sony’s handsets have been awful value for money.
For 2018, it looks like Sony could be fixing at least one of those problems.
Most of us know Samsung usually makes two big flagship smartphone launches every year. But, if you’re someone who follows this company closely, you’ll know that there is a third Android flagship and it comes in a very unconventional form-factor. Unconventional in the modern smartphone era, at least.
It’s a flip phone and this year it’s called the W2018. Usually, these flip phones basically condense the high-end specs of their Galaxy flagships into this smaller flip-phone form-factor. This time though, things are a little different because the W2018 has something no other Galaxy smartphone has.
As a tech enthusiast, you have got to love Acer sometimes. Not because they always make the best products, but because they have the balls to take the leap and do what they want to do regardless of the circumstances. Last year, they gave us the absolutely bonkers Predator 21X.
This year they decided to cram most of that craziness into a chassis that’s thinner than 2cm. It’s called the Predator Triton 700 and starting today, you can pick one up for less than you’d expect.

The nice thing about the futuristic tech you find of flagship smartphones is that there’s often a good chance that they will likely trickle down. given time, to more affordable handsets. We’ve already seen the wildly popular slim bezel screens make their way to mid-range devices and sure those do come with watered down specs but the experience is broadly similar for a sizable price cut.
But what if you’re one who doesn’t want the cut in performance. What if you want the best flagship specs you can get on a smartphone, including that nice new screen, at much lower price? Nubia‘s got you covered with their new Z17S smartphone.
Did you like the HTC U11? I sure did and it was low-key one of my favourite phones last year, despite some of its weaknesses. I thought HTC was going in the right direction and it looks like they took that into consideration when designing their brand new HTC U11+ flagship smartphone.
Cherry on top? It looks like they’ve also fixed some of their smaller flagship’s biggest weaknesses. Yeah, you can get excited now.
Huawei‘s finally shown its hand. The Chinese company has released its most capable smartphone of the year and on paper it definitely impresses. However, the crucial thing about the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro is their price. With how expensive this year’s crop of flagship smartphones have gotten, one has to wonder what price tag Huawei wants to slap on this device.
The answer? In Malaysia, it might be lower than you think.

Hours before the official launch of Huawei‘s highly anticipated flagship smartphone — the Huawei Mate 10 — it appears that Huawei Honor IOI City Store has leaked the pre-order promo for this device in Malaysia. Here’s what you can expect.
The Nokia 8 is an interesting flagship offering top-end specs at a competitive price. If that’s not good enough, the Finnish company is expected to release a newer model that’s called the Nokia 9.
Ahead of its big reveal, we now have a clearer view thanks to these new renders. It looks very different from what we’ve seen from the new Nokia brand.
After the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the next flagship to look forward to is Huawei with its upcoming Mate 10 series. Like the current crop of flagship smartphones, it will feature an all screen display and Huawei believes it is the device worth waiting for.
With about a month away to its official unveiling, a clear photo of the Huawei Mate 10 has surfaced online thanks to a tip to @evleaks.
