LG G7 Has ThinQ AI And Does Indeed Has The iPhone X Notch Up Top

LG finally took the wrap off its G series flagship after a sneak at the Mobile World Congress in March. I still can’t get over how media did not pick it up back then except for one lone blog. So, here it is, the LG G7. What can we say? It looks so iPhone X. It even has a glass back and has a button-less front, just like the X. Sorry to say that Apple is still the leader in designs. How else do you explain the notch trend? Granted, Apple was not first; it was Essential Phone that started it, but you have to admit that it was Apple that makes it a “trendy” thing.

This Is How A Curved iPhone Will Look Like, But It Probably Won’t Happen

I do not keep abreast with so-called Apple rumors. However, today I picked up something that pique my interest and so I thought we’d share it with you here. We read that there is a chance that future iPhone models will have “hover” gestures and curved displays. Curved like, you know, the iconic Nokia 8110, AKA the banana phone, which recently got rebooted? The curved was described as “inward” and progresses “gradually from top to bottom,” which does really makes it sounds like 8110 kind of design. I know. It is hard to imagine how, but not to worry, because designer Martin Hajek has taken the rumors and imagine what the phone would look like.

Chrome OS tablet is happening, starting with Acer Chromebook Tab 10the first tablet to run on Chrome OS. I can understand you need Android Wear for smartwatch, but Chrome OS for tablets opposed to the norm of Android OS? What? I just don’t get it, really.

Believe It Or Not, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Main Camera Has A DxOMark Score Of 101

Well, you heard the rumor and probably caught a glimpse of the top right corner notch of the supposed Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. Well, it does not have the notch (thankfully!). Like the Mi Mix 2, the selfie camera is still at the bottom right. Aesthetically, the device has very subtle changes from its predecessor, but we can’t say the same for what’s under the hood. With Mi Mix 2S, it joins the handful of handsets that is driven by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with the range-topping model sporting a whopping 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage.

Huawei P20 Pro Is Like An iPhone X With A Three Camera System

Behold the future of smartphone is… iPhone X lookalike with the notch. Yup. Following Vivo, ASUS and the lot, Huawei is in it too with its new P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. Oh mine. I wonder how many acid tongue Android loyalists have spewed hate on the notch, but look what we have here. Notch on almost all the new phones we have seen thus far. On the bright side, Android users who loathe Apple’s autocratic approach with their OS can enjoy similar aesthetic with more liberty on the OS aspect. I guess its a win? Maybe.
