Don’t Like Foldable Phone? Here’s The New Samsung Galaxy S10 Then

Prior to the announcement of Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, Galaxy Fold, the South Korean handset maker also announced the successor to the S9, the Samsung Galaxy S10 line of smartphones. But somehow, I was drawn to the press release of the Galaxy Fold first. Anyways, here it is, the next-generation flagship is also official. Hmmm. Somehow, it does not sound as exciting. Though so, we can’t deny Samsung do know how design beautiful phones. Continue reading Don’t Like Foldable Phone? Here’s The New Samsung Galaxy S10 Then

Samsung’s Foldable Smartphone Is A $2K Device Called ‘Galaxy Fold’

This is it. The moment the world has been waiting for, the first foldable smartphone from a major brand is official. We are talking about Samsung’s foldable smartphone which the company showed off back in November 2018. Not only it is official, it has a got a name, an associated sticker and availability too. Called Samsung Galaxy Fold, it will cost a hefty $1,980 when it becomes available on April 26, 2019 (May 3rd for Europe). Yikes. What kind of blasphemy is this? The price of smartphones has been skyrocketing and a novelty like certainly does not help to cool the pricing. Continue reading Samsung’s Foldable Smartphone Is A $2K Device Called ‘Galaxy Fold’

Budget TV Maker, TCL, Working On Wrist-wearable Foldable Smartphone

The smartphone industry has seen little to no innovation since its popularization by Apple 12 years ago. Since the first full, colored touch display rolled into the market, things hasn’t change a whole. Sure, we have better display, under display fingerprint sensor, and better cameras, but really, as far as usability, smartphones remain largely the same. And I am perfectly fine with incremental innovations, but just don’t ask for crazy prices in exchange. However, things are set to change this year and beyond, as manufacturers are getting serious with foldable devices.

Honor V20 (View20) Bagged Guinness Word Records’ Largest Photo Mosaic

Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, is really going all the way out to promote its latest Honor V20, AKA Honor View20, smartphone – specifically, the “world’s first” 48 MP camera. The company has recently leveraged on the device’s 48 MP camera to achieve Guinness World Record for The Largest Photo Mosaic (image). The mosaic features 30,000 photos (or 29,480 photos, to be precise) captured by Honor V20’s 48 MP AI Ultra Clarity mode to piece together the world’s largest photo mosaic that spread across 2,323.96 square meter (25,014.90 square feet). Continue reading Honor V20 (View20) Bagged Guinness Word Records’ Largest Photo Mosaic

Meizu Takes To Indiegogo To Sell The World’s First Hole-less Phone

Here’s one major difference between the automobile industry and China’s handset makers: concept cars don’t always see the light of production and even if they do, it takes years to materialize. Concept phones, particularly those emerged from China, almost always become a reality and doing so very quickly. Case-in-point: the Meizu Zero. Unveiled barely a week ago with any fanfare, the Meizu Zero is claimed as the “world’s first hole-less phone.” Continue reading Meizu Takes To Indiegogo To Sell The World’s First Hole-less Phone

DOOGEE Takes To Kickstarter To Sell Its First Rugged Modular Smartphone

Do you guys remember DOOGEE? The small handset maker from China that mostly makes copies of other China handset (but doing it pretty darn well)? Well, it looks like they have progressed quite a bit. The company is breaking into the U.S. market with its new device called DOOGEE S90, which it claimed as “the most versatile unbreakable smartphone.” Continue reading DOOGEE Takes To Kickstarter To Sell Its First Rugged Modular Smartphone

Meizu Unveiled Groundbreaking Button-less And Port-less Smartphone

Looks like Vivo isn’t the only China handset maker that is shaking up the smartphone industry. Meizu is doing so, starting with a very futuristic smartphone called Meizu Zero. If you need a definition of futuristic design, Meizu Zero would be it. Proudly billed as a “hole-less phone,” this device is the first handset to sport a button-less and port-less design. An absolutely clean device is what the Meizu Zero is. There’s no notch nor is there a hole-punched camera. Continue reading Meizu Unveiled Groundbreaking Button-less And Port-less Smartphone

Honor View20 Is Official, Has 3D Motion-Controlled Gaming

With Android handset makers continuing to roll out some really serious innovations (like this one here, for example), it makes one wonder what the hell is Apple doing? Resting on their laurels, perhaps? OK. We are not here to bash dear Apple. Instead, we are marveling at Huawei-owned Honor’s newest device, the View20, which the world had a peek in November 2018, and then, subsequently, Honor revealed the China market-only V20 that is essentially the View20. Continue reading Honor View20 Is Official, Has 3D Motion-Controlled Gaming

Vivo’s New Concept Smartphone Is 5G, Has Magnetic Port And Full Display Fingerprint Scanner

With so many innovations under its belt, I wonder why China’s handset maker Vivo hasn’t gotten more attention. The brand shook the smartphone industry with the world’s first under display fingerprint scanner, then proceeds to further rock the industry with a pop-up camera bezel-less smartphone that has half-display fingerprint scanner, and now, it is prepping to dish up what-could-be-the-company’s most audacious concept smartphone. Continue reading Vivo’s New Concept Smartphone Is 5G, Has Magnetic Port And Full Display Fingerprint Scanner

Xiaomi Teases Its Take On Folding Smartphone And It Has Double Folds!

Xiaomi co-founder and President Lin Bin has posted a hands-on video of Xiaomi’s take of folding phone on China’s micro-blogging platform, Weibo, asking Weibo users to help name the device. What a way to scream, “Hey! Look here! We are making folding smartphone too!” Before you jump on Xiaomi for being a copycat, well, you have to know that Xiaomi’s take of the folding phone is unlike Royale’s and Samsung’s. It has a completely unique design which Bin Link claims as the world’s double folding phone. That’s right. The phone can be fold on both sides, or top and bottom, depending on whether or not you are holding it in landscape or portrait orientation.
