HTC is one of the first manufacturers to introduce dual cameras on a smartphone. There’s the HTC One M8 and if you want to go further, they also had the EVO 3D which can capture video and stills in 3D with its dual-camera setup.
While the competition had jumped on the dual-camera bandwagon, HTC has stuck with having a single camera for the rear since the HTC 10. According to its former president, HTC will be releasing dual-camera smartphones in 2018 but they will need to figure out how to make it stand out from the rest.
According to this new leak, it looks like HTC has finally nailed it and the new dual-camera flagship could be announced in April this year.
Ok I may have exaggerated a bit. The CAT S61 doesn’t really shoot lasers, instead, the built-in laser is used for distance and area measurement. Yes, you read that right, this is a smartphone with a built-in laser measurement tool.
CAT has been building smartphones for a few years now and being a brand that’s synonymous with construction work, you can understand why the S61 is a rugged phone. The rugged phone concept is not anything new though. Many brands have tried and are still building rugged smartphones but the S61 is unique because of the array of tools built-into the device.
Ultra-rugged, tough smartphones come and go, but how often do you actually get a phone that actually comes with a thermal imaging camera and a laser?
You’ve seen smartphones touting water resistance, splash resistance and all the other fancy buzzwords that are used to convey one basic message: Your smartphone should survive an unfortunate meeting with water.
But how important is that? Also, what’s the difference between water resistance and plain splash resistance? And, what’s that peculiar code that’s sometimes next to a manufacturers water resistant rating and sometimes not? Well, here’s where you can get your answers
The Moto X4 is finally official at IFA 2017. It’s their most stylish smartphone yet and it comes with a dual-camera setup. Unlike its other metal bodied smartphones, the X4 gets an anodized aluminium frame with Corning’s Gorilla Glass wrapping both front and back. The back also gets a 3D contoured design for a unique look.
The iPhone is turning 10 years old by the end of this month and there’s one feature which Apple has reluctant to upgrade for the longest time. Despite having excellent battery life from a relatively small battery capacity, Apple has not made any significant changes when it comes to charging.
While other smartphones are pushing faster charging and wireless charging support, Apple is still bundling a basic 1Amp power brick with its current top of the line iPhone 7 Plus. The way you charge may soon change with its upcoming iPhone due later this year.
If you’ve been hoping that Google‘s upcoming Pixel smartphones — the Pixel and Pixel XL — would be water resistant like the Galaxy Note7, it looks like you’re out of luck because Android Police believe that the new duo from Google will have almost “no enhanced water resistance at all“.
Competing in a market with Apple and Samsung is definitely tough to do, more so when you have affordable Chinese brands chipping away at your market share. You have to juggle between innovating, designing, marketing and setting price points. So far, Sony has been on the short end of the stick but they were once in a very different position.

It takes a lot to remove a word from your smartphone model’s identity; evolving the Sony Xperia M series meant dropping the “Aqua” name on the Xperia M5 Dual. It’s going to take a lot more than product placement in a Bond film to revive the Japanese giant, or at least their mobile division, if they want to continue the Xperia brand.
