Real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy Wearable Is Making A Limited Time Comeback

Sometime, a missed opportunity may not be a bad thing at all. Such is in the case of the real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy we first saw last year. This post-apocalypse smartwatch of sort was introduced with a hefty $350 sticker and it is essentially a replica of the in-game device, but has real-life smartwatch functionalities instead. In other words, it probably won’t help you get through a post-apocalypse scenario, unfortunately. Anywho, as it turns out, it was a blessing in disguise if you missed it the last time round, because Bethesda, the game developer behind Fallout 4, is bringing the real-life Fallout 4 Pip-boy back for a limited time and the most brilliant part is, it will cost just 100 dollars bundled with the new version of the video game, AKA the “Game Of The Year” Edition.

Sharp Aquos S2 Looks Like A Cross Between Essential Phone And iPhone 8

When it comes to crazy screen-to-body ratio and “bezel-less” smartphone, Sharp is no doubt the forerunner while others are merely just catching up. That being said, up to this point and after several devices that tout bezel-less design, Sharp has proven itself to be the purveyor of innovations. The company seems to hell-bent in getting rid of as much bezel as possible, even to the extend of relocating the front-facing camera to the bottom of the device, but the Sharp Aquos S2 Android phone unveiled last week in Beijing, China, come as a surprise to some. Surprised in confusing way. It has a bezel-less design, alright, but at the same time, one can’t help but to wonder where one has seen similar design before. Ahhh… that’s right, Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone! Continue reading Sharp Aquos S2 Looks Like A Cross Between Essential Phone And iPhone 8

Tired of crappy selfies taken by poorly designed front-facing camera on today’s smartphone? Well, fret not, you narcissist bunch cos’ Meizu newest flagship handset, the Pro 7, is here to help and it is doing so by not bumping up the front-facing shooter’s specs; instead it gives you a tiny second screen around the back so you can take advantage of the 12MP+12MP dual camera setup to capture the most beautiful narcissist selfie yet cos’, you know, nothing beats the rear camera – however hard manufacturers try to push for better front-facing camera.

Apparently, These Are New “Confirmed” Updates And Images Of iPhone 8

So, when it comes to “leaked” info of Apple’s new smartphone, I guess that company that does the bling to iPhone, Brikk, should know the best. So far, Brikk has not been proven wrong. Following the company’s teasing of the new range of luxe, yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8, Brikk has pushed out an email saying it has “new confirmed updates and photos of iPhone 8 from Apple.” Now, I have not been keeping abreast of the rumors so far, well, at least not as much as I think I should have, but what Brikk has to offer on the email is a tad more than the current rumors floating around. Along with a few images of the supposed leaked iPhone 8, Brikk confirmed the worst fear of some Apple users: Apple is yet again removing something and this time it has ditched the traditional home button which also happens to be the touch ID to make way for a larger screen coverage.

LG Unveiled Q8 Smartphone, Touts It As A “Multimedia Powerhouse”

It looks like Huawei is feeling the pinch of selling low-budget devices. According to a report, the Chinese telecommunication equipment maker is revamping the strategy to go “high-end” only, just like the fruity company have been doing all these while. However, not every major handset maker is feeling the heat yet and LG is certainly one of them not feeling the heat. Granted, they do not have as many handset models as Samsung, they are still pretty relentless in trying to fill the perceived segment void. The LG Q8 announced early this week is one good example.

Brikk Touts Luxe iPhone 8 Devices Even Before Official Announcement

The fate of the so-called iPhone 8 remains unclear. So far, what I have read is contradicting to say the least. One source cited possible delay due to material shortage and another said on contrary to rumor, it will be on time. Hell, no one can even confirm if it will be called iPhone 8 at all. For all you know, it could be just iPhone Edition. However, like before, that won’t stop Brikk from ‘introducing’ the luxury version of the yet-to-be-announced iPhone 8. The tip reached our inbox and I thought it will be interesting to share. In total Brikk plans to offer three levels of luxe iPhone 8: Lux iPhone 8, Lux iPhone 8 Standard and Lux iPhone 8 Deluxe.

When LG G6 unveiled the company’s new flagship, the LG G6, in February, who would have thought that it has a little more tricks up its sleeve down the road, like around now?
