While everyone’s getting hyped up about the tri-main-cam Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, everyone’s favourite leak specialist Evan Blass dropped some details — as well as a photo — of HTC’s next big flagship smartphone. Apparently, it’ll be called the HTC U12+ even though there probably will only be one device.
Fujifilm X photographers, meet your new king. This is the Fujifilm X-H1 and it’s the most “serious” camera Fujifilm makes right now, setting its sights on the likes of Sony’s excellent a6500.
“The Camera. Reimagined” is the big tagline Samsung uses for their flagship Galaxy S9 and S9+. Of course, Samsung’s new flagship smartphones do come with a highly advanced camera module that we’ve never seen on a mass-produced handset before — which I guess does count as “reimagining” — but what does that actually mean? Does the Galaxy S9 actually take such incredible photos that it deserves the lofty assumptions that tend to come with a “reimagined” camera?
Well, see for yourself, as we take the Galaxy S9 on a quick tour of Barcelona before we left for our flight home.

Ho! Ho! Ho! If you need a brand new flagship smartphone to usher in the Chinese New Year, you’re in luck because you can get one of the best smartphones of 2017 at a whopping RM600 off. Yeap, Samsung Malaysia has a pretty killer deal for their flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. And the best part is they’re also slashing the prices for some of their more affordable devices too.

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.
