I think we all saw this day coming. With how powerful mobile processors are getting, it was only a matter of time before mobile silicon makers made the big push to get their chips in full-fledged Windows laptops and tablets. For Qualcomm, that day has arrived, but for everyone else, the question is: What’s new?
There’s one thing that Sony is very good at and it’s the ability to create flagship phones that are truly compact. Beginning from the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray and then continuing with the Xperia Z Compact series, Sony is able to fill a niche where people want the best phones that can really fit comfortably in your hands. This breaks the norm where you have to accept a larger screen if you’re looking for a flagship phone.
On the last Xperia X Compact, it was quite an underwhelming phone as it gets a mid-range hardware and it lacks Sony’s signature water resistance. After realising that they can’t sell mediocre phones at a premium, Sony is trying to make things right with their upcoming Xperia XZ1 Compact.
Nubia, ZTE’s sub-brand has officially entered the Malaysian market. At its official launch today, nubia has also shared that their newest flagship, the nubia Z17 will be coming to Malaysia very soon. This is the world’s first Snapdragon 835 flagship smartphone with 8GB RAM and it’s also the first to feature Qualcomm’s newest QuickCharge 4+ fast charging technology.
There are a couple of new flagship smartphones running on Snapdragon 835 processor these days. This includes the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xiaomi Mi 6, HTC U11 and the Galaxy S8 for the US market. If you’re looking for that extra edge, ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia has a new flagship smartphone that stands out as an interesting alternative.
Meet the Nubia Z17. It’s the first Snapdragon 835 powered device to come with 8GB of RAM and it’s also the first to incorporate Qualcomm’s latest QuickCharge 4+.
Xiaomi is always known for making smartphones with the best specs at an unbeatable price. With the Mi 6, this trend continues and Xiaomi is taking a step further by attempting to make a phone that looks and feels more expensive.
Xiaomi clearly isn’t cutting any corners when it comes to raw specs. The Mi 6 runs on a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and all variants will get 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. But is it all good? Read on for our first impressions of Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone for 2017.
As LG looks poised to launch their upcoming flagship, the G6, at the end of next month, a new report from Forbes just dropped that sheds some light what might be disappointing for LG fans to hear: The LG G6 will allegedly not come with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor and here’s why.
CES is a time for technological showcase. It’s a show where manufacturers from around the world gather and show off what they’re capable of. Although many of these devices don’t actually go on sale until much later in the year, it’s still really interesting to see these concepts and ideas.
However, a recent video has surfaced on YouTube, allegedly revealing that even Nokia had something on display in CES. And that something is their upcoming Android flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8.
