The news section is overrun by rumors these days. It is hard to definitively say whether the Galaxy Note7 or the iPhone 7 is fueling more fan excitement, but both are shaping up to be true market-defining offers.
Starting with camp Samsung, information about the next Note phablet seems a bit clearer and straightforward. There are still some major points of interest, like the enhanced S Pen mechanics, USB port type and new software features. But other than that, we think we have a pretty good idea of what to expect - a 5.7 or 5.8-inch curved Super AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM and Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 821 SoC. More recently, we even got to see the new Iris scanner tech in action.
As for the iPhone, we are still mostly hearing about the design. Color options are under discussion and we are yet to figure out the whole Plus, Pro variant dilemma and how it relates to the new dual camera setup. However, we still got to see a glimpse of the performance of the new Apple A10 chip, as well as some rumors about a bigger battery.
ASUS managed to squeeze in a few new device announcements amid all the commotion. Sadly, the Taiwanese company seems to be heading towards the same naming scheme madness it made with the Zenfone 2 lineup. This week saw the announcement of the Zenfone 3 Laser and Zenfone 3 Max, as well as the top-of-the-line Zenfone 3 Deluxe. And going by experience, we can only expect more to come as well.
We also can't fail to mention Xiaomi, which is plotting its next big move with two new Note devices, allegedly in the works. Both the Mi Note 2 and the budget-friendly Redmi Note 4 are shaping up to be interesting offers.
The unit appears complete and fully functioning, but sadly we don't get a closer look at the S Pen.
The camera setup is eerily similar to that of the much more expensive P9, but the chipset is a step down.
The Moto E3 is a big step up from the previous generation Moto E, but it's not clear how it's different from a rebadged Moto G4 Play.
It is an exciting collection of shots that offers a front, back and side view of the handset.
The new Galaxy On5 Pro and On7 Pro offer minor upgrades, come with Marshmallow and S-Bike Mode.
No more renders, ladies and gentlemen - we can now show you a real Note7 handset photographed in the wild somewhere.
The dual rear camera trend will reach Xiaomi too once it launches its next affordable phablet.
With the Galaxy Note7 premiere just around the corner, the leaks are exponentially increasing.
We get a glimpse at the revamped UI and the curved screen.
It was followed by the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S7.
A new rumor comes to please people who value battery life in their smartphones above everything else.
The two new smartphones became official today at an event in Vietnam.
The shot looks a lot more authentic than some previous photos and seems to confirm the new design.
The first to get the update are the Redmi Note, Redmi Note 4G, Redmi Note Prime, and Mi Max 32GB.
The phone is apparently going to be introduced in late August as the company's next flagship.
Despite rumors, only four color options are shown - Silver and Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold.
Comes with 6GB RAM and 256GB UFS 2.0 storage.
The company is making sure that there are enough units available for the upcoming sale.
It seems Microsoft is working on some changes on the Windows 10 Mobile Action Center that should make it a bit more functional.
In other news, the US carrier versions of the phablet are already through FCC.
The new tablet has a 9.7-inch 2,048x1,536 display, 4GB of RAM, and a 5,900 mAh battery.
Snapdragon 821 is a slight improvement over its 820 predecessor, higher clock speeds for the CPU.
Single core performance seems to be up to par with the A9x and industry sources suggest it is a dual-core chip.
I see nothing wrong. This is the type of comment you go with when you have nothing better to say? Don't be a nit-picky keyboard warrior.
When somebody speaks from himself in 1st person plural...
note 7 and iphone 7 are the only interesting things here
