MWC 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting event. LG has the G6 to unveil and after its rebirth, Nokia will apparently hit hard with at least 3 handsets. If HMD plays its cards right and hits the nostalgia note properly, the alleged re-imagining of the legendary Nokia 3310 could very well steal the show on pure coolness points alone.
Sony has also been keeping busy lately. Rumors and leaks now hint at new Xperia XA and XZ devices, with a third model, also potentially on the horizon. Huawei may have a few surprises lined up for the show as well, like the P10 Plus.
Beyond the excitement of MWC 2017, the industry is also busy anticipating Apple and Samsung's next respective smartphone releases. It appears Apple won't be holding back when it comes to commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone. Besides the more traditional, aluminum iPhone 7s, the iPhone 8 might be headed to eager fans, now more different than ever. An OLED panel, courtesy of Samsung, is almost certain at this point. A glass back and wireless charging are also highly plausible. Ditching the legendary round home button, in favor of on-screen controls might be a thing for the iPhone 8 as well.
As for Samsung, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ pair are still the hottest topic, with news of a new Note8 also creeping up here and there. The Korean giant is expected to fan the flames some more and give out extra info on the pair and their release at MWC.
An alpha build of the app floating around also enables payments within Google Assistant and comes with lite mode and recent search features.
Koh Dong-jin, president of mobile communications at Samsung, said that the "official [launch] schedule" for the phone will be announced at MWC.
Today's iPhone rumor goes into some more detail about the chassis materials for the three expected models.
A Korean design studio released clearest renders yet of the long-awaited flagship Galaxy S8/S8+
Other than that, the Nokia 3 sounds very similar to the Nokia 5 (they are priced similarly too).
The bigger SM-G955FD can now be found on Samsung Singapore's support page.
The 5.5” device will be CNY999 ($145) and the Hatsune Miku combo will be CNY1,299 ($189).
The already unveiled Nokia 6 will also be sold in Europe.
No wireless charger in the box (hardly surprising), but also no Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter (bummer).
The device sports a 5-inch HD display, and has 3GB RAM.
Also sells over 3 million units of the Redmi 3S in under six months.
The new iPhone will have similar dimensions to the 4.7” iPhone 7, while packing a 5.8” OLED screen.
The device is powered by a chipset with octa-core processor, and sports a 5.2-inch IPS display.
The P10 Plus will have a dual-curved touchscreen and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, unlike the P10.
Samsung Display won a deal worth of KRW5 trillion to supply 60 million OLED panels for the next-gen iPhone.
Alternatively, this could be the Redmi 4X with a new design and slightly improved specs.
The device is expected to have a 5.2" to 5.8" touchscreen, so those accomplishments would be exceptional.
Samsung is expecting a strong demand for its Galaxy S8 and S8+ to the tune of 60 million units.
Samsung is working on a 2017 version of the Galaxy J5 and the device surfaced in Wi-Fi certification docs.
The information came courtesy of a tipster on Twitter.
The information that's been outed in Korean media today reportedly comes from "a senior official" at the company.
The company released a video with the hashtag #HuaweiP10 and the slogan “Change the way the world sees you”.
The global stable OTA is already available for a few handsets, with the next update wave planned for February 20.
Spanish retailer Phone House says the phone will carry a price tag of €799.
The rumor also claims that there will only be a 9.7-inch variant this time around.
Camera similar to 2015 phones... Super cool. 2x zoom is fantastic, now I know why people say all details are there. Mine can zoom in 8x. No phone can keep goid images when zoom has high value.
If you think the iphone has an average camera, then you really don't know what you're talking about. Maybe learn how to take photos? I could get decent shots with a budget acer. And the battery life is fine. Especially the plus version which outlasts...
Iphone brings old features and people fall in love with it anyway.. Waterproofing, avarege camera, stereo sound are nothing new.. Bring a decent battery.. I7 should have 2500mAh and i7 plus 3300.
