This is 2019, so luxury/fashion smartwatches aren’t news anymore. Not that luxury/fashion smartwatch is a bad thing, btw.

Speaking of smartwatches, if anyone care to know, here’s a new one from Louis Vuitton, the 2019 Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon.

Design-wise, it is rather rudimentary by today’s smartphone standards, so we shall dispense with the details. Continue reading Vivo’s New Nex Has No Selfie Camera, Has Dual Display And 10 GB RAM

Besides Xiaomi, OnePlus is likely the other handset maker with the most collab phones. The latest to join OnePlus’ growing portfolio of collabs is this: the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. IMHO, this isn’t just any collab. It might be a carefully orchestrated one. Why? Because, Warp Charge 30. The slogan for this OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is “salute to speed” and while OnePlus can’t do much to the innards to make the 6T go fast like a McLaren, it has given the device the company’s new 30 watts charger that promised to make 0-50 percent capacity in 20 minutes. Continue reading OnePlus Debuts OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition With Warp Charge 30, 10 GB RAM
