This is one for the fashion-forward, style-conscious OnePlus aficionados. OnePlus has come together with Moroccan-born French artist/fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to add a touch of class to the handset maker’s current flagship, OnePlus 5. Referred to as the “Callection,” the OnePlus 5 JCC+ limited edition Android phone features colored hardware buttons in Castelbajac’s signature colors: blue, yellow and red, as well as “inspiring manifesto” etched on the phone’s back. In addition to the unique aesthetic touches on the hardware, the OnePlus x Castelbajac OnePlus 5 device also comes packed with 10 exclusive wallpapers hand drawn by the artist/fashion designer, plus “a few other surprises” which the company will leave it to you to discover.

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. Case in point: just before the official announcement of Apple’s anniversary iPhone, the iPhone X and the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 8, Samsung made an official statement in South Korea of its intention to continue pursuing foldable display smartphones. Until now, foldable display device is to smartphone like flying cars to personal transportation. There are talks about it and even concept made, but never realized. That being said, the concept of foldable phone, particularly one that has a foldable display, is not the newest news. Continue reading Samsung Plans To Release Galaxy Note Device With Bendable Display In 2018
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. Continue reading Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Is ‘Edgeless’, Smaller But Packs Higher Resolution
We usually don’t do rumors and if we did, it is almost always about Apple iPhone, but looking at how the smartphone industry have shifted so far, you know, Google getting into the hardware making itself, we think it is time that we dish out some rumors on the upcoming Google Pixel 2. Anywho, what you see here is a render based on the rumors and leaks that have been floating around the Internet over the last couple of months, courtesy of Android Police. Whether or not the final device will look like this, it is pretty much anybody’s guess, but we secretly hope it is. If it does really look like, I am all for it and I am not apologetic for being a sucker for design. Continue reading If This Is How The Google Pixel XL 2 Will Look Like, Sign Me Up For One!
Now that Google Nexus is officially dead and Android One has mysteriously gone quite for a while now, your only hope for pure Android experience, i.e. Android without bloatware, would be Google-sanctioned devices such as the Pixel line is your only hope. That said, unlike Android One or even the Nexus line, pure Android experience is not for the budget-conscious. Right now, Pixel is premium and alternatives like OnePlus, Motorola and more recently the Essential Phone, which are the closest you can get to pure Android experience, aren’t cheap as well. Continue reading Xiaomi’s First Pure Android Phone, The Mi A1, Is Certainly Not A Budget Phone
I said it before and I will say it again. I never understand the need for handset makers to have more than one flagship. I mean, seriously, it is basically cannibalizing its own market in the name of market share. I guess manufacturers just can’t help it, thanks to a thing called competition-pressure. LG is one such handset makers that caved into the pressure and the new V30 announced at the IFA is the company’s the other flagship that should make you torn in deciding to wait for the next G series or go for the V. I guess it is a good news for fans of the V series. Continue reading LG V30 Smartphone Unveiled, Packs A Boatload Of “Industry Innovations”
Packing a beautiful smartphone with layers after layers of protection seems counter-intuitive in aesthetic point of view and it most definitely defeats the designers’ intention. I don’t know about you, but me think it feels like listening to high-resolution audio files with a muffed earphones or a mono-driver speaker system. Completely pointless. And the same goes to battery life. It is equally pointless to have a device that does it all and not have the battery life to support for all-day use. That is why there’s Cat Phones and that is why now there’s the Cat S41 Smartphone. Continue reading Cat’s New Smartphone Packs 5,000 mAh Battery, Can Serve As A Power Bank Too
Whether or not if you have put Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco behind you, Samsung is ready to show a spanking new follow up, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 with emphasis on safety, of course. Lets dispense with the marketing mambo jambo and jump straight into what it has to offer. First and foremost, Note8 has the largest touch display on a Note device yet, coming in at 6.3-inch and flaunting a Quad HD+ Super AMOLED with 2,960 x 1,440 resolution that packs 521 api. Imho, what you are looking at is essentially a S8+ that boasts S Pen feature. I mean, just look at it. Aesthetically, it is virtually indistinguishable from the S8+ to untrained eyes.
