When it comes to mobile imaging, Huawei spares no expense in making it the best, even the device in question is not a flagship handset. Case-in-point, the new Huawei Maimang 6. While clockwork is only of a Kirin 659 SoC (with octacore processor, however), it does has not two, not three, but four cameras. We are talking about a dual camera setup around the back and a dual camera setup at the front. That’s something you don’t see often on flagship handsets, much less on non-flagship variety. Also on the front is the now-trendy edgeless display that stretches 5.9-inch across diagonally, packing 2,160 x 1,080 pixel resolution in also now-popular 18:9 aspect ratio.

When it comes to mobile phone color, I usually would abstain from white. Not because it is easily dirtied, but because with a white device, more often than not, it will be paired with a white front which, IMHO, upsets the color balance since the display is black when not turned on. However, I might just change my stance if this is what a white Google Pixel 2 will look like. In the latest leak posted by Droid Life, the purported white Google Pixel 2 features a white majority back matched to a black glass section and surprisingly, it comes with a dash of orange… on the power button. Continue reading Latest Google Pixel Phone Leak Had Me Drooling Over The White Version
I love Star Wars as much as I love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy because, the sci-fi movie franchise is loaded with many future tech that are still a dream to us mortals. As far as Star Wars is concerned, one of the tech that captures our imagination most would be holographic technology, particularly when it can be touched like the Dejarik, a chess-like holographic game famously played C-3PO and Chewbacca on Solo’s Millennium Falcon. Love is one thing, but I reserve the right to be skeptical about if it will actually realize in my lifetime. Continue reading The Display Tech Behind RED Hydrogen One Holographic Phone Revealed!
The rivalry between Apple and Samsung could be more ferocious than some might have imagined.

China’s prolific handset maker (or maker of all things sellable, really) may not be the first to tout bezel-less display, but it was among the first to recognize the potential and hopped onto the bandwagon fairly swiftly with the Mi Mix introduced last year. Nearly a year on, a second iteration was born and like the first, the Mi Mix 2 is beautiful, lent to it by an incredibly expansive display and a unibody ceramic construction. It is again, a product touched by contemporary design maestro, Philippe Starck. Xiaomi may have started out imitating others, but along the way, the company has matured, developing its own vision in the area of innovations.

Tim Cook kicked off the September 12 Apple event with a touching tribute to Steve Jobs. Aptly, the event was held at a theater named after the late visionary co-founder of Apple. The intro was a break from the tradition where Tim would go on to boast about sale numbers, user-ships and of course, retails. Retails it did touched on, but the product highlights was lead by Apple Watch, which Cook claims overtook Rolex to be “the number one watch in the world.” Continue reading Apple Watch Series 3 Has Built-In Cellular, So You Can Ditch Your Phone
So, this is it. Just hours ago, Apple taken the wrap of the heavily leaked and rumored iPhone anniversary device, iPhone X, along with the iPhone 7 successor, now called iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Yup. iPhone 7s has been skipped. It is now straight to 8.

It features an expansive, edge-to-edge bezel-less display that takes up the entire front. In the process, the physical Home button is gone and so is the fingerprint sensor. In its place is a 7MP sensors loaded front-facing camera that will unlock your device via Face ID. Continue reading iPhone X And iPhone 8: One Excites But The Other Makes Us Go Yawn
