HTC will be introducing a new large screen smartphone very soon. After Samsung, LG and Huawei had launched their tall and skinny 18:9 display smartphones, HTC will be releasing a “FullView’ smartphone of their own that is expected to be called the HTC U11 Plus.
Sony appears to be releasing yet another Xperia flagship during IFA 2017. After introducing the Xperia XZs earlier this year, Sony will announce a new successor that’s expected to be called the Xperia XZ1.
If you’re hoping that Sony will do something drastic when it comes to design, get ready for some disappointment.
The Galaxy Note8 is Samsung’s next big thing and it is almost a year since the ill-fated Galaxy Note7 was announced last August. After serial leaker @evleaks had dropped some details on the specs, we now have some sort of visual of the upcoming productivity smartphone.
The styling looks very similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 but with a slot for the S-Pen and what is likely to be a non-removable battery. This is evidenced by slot on the side which is likely to be either a SIM or a microSD expansion slot but its too soon to tell.

By the looks of it, the Tab S2 will be sporting a metal rim as well as a physical home button as well as a power button and a volume rocker on top of a microSD and SIM card slot. The home button could possibly be a fingerprint scanner as well.
Rumoured specs for the device include a super AMOLED 2048 x 1536 display, 64-bit Exynos processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage with Android 5.0 out of the box. The tablet is also expected to have a 8 megapixel rear camera with a 2.1 megapixel front shooter and Cat.6 LTE support.
@Onleaks also reports that the tablet may not be as skinny as originally thought, as it’s rumoured to be around 5.8 to 5.9 mm at it’s thickest point when previously it was speculated that the 8 inch model of the Tab S2 would be around 5.4 to 5.5mm thick.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is more or less expected to make it’s debut in June and should come in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and 3G flavours.
