Latest Google Pixel Phone Leak Had Me Drooling Over The White Version

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.

The Display Tech Behind RED Hydrogen One Holographic Phone Revealed!

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!

Samsung Plans To Release Galaxy Note Device With Bendable Display In 2018

The rivalry between Apple and Samsung could be more ferocious than some might have imagined.

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.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Is ‘Edgeless’, Smaller But Packs Higher Resolution

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.

iPhone X And iPhone 8: One Excites But The Other Makes Us Go Yawn

So, this is it. Just hours ago, Apple taken the wrap of the heavily leaked and rumored iPhone anniversary device, iPhone X, along with the iPhone 7 successor, now called iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Yup. iPhone 7s has been skipped. It is now straight to 8. Anyways, we are not here to regurgitate what Tim Cook and his team has spat out in a lengthy keynote and so here’s the gist. iPhone X is expected, beautiful. It features an expansive, edge-to-edge bezel-less display that takes up the entire front. In the process, the physical Home button is gone and so is the fingerprint sensor. In its place is a 7MP sensors loaded front-facing camera that will unlock your device via Face ID. Continue reading iPhone X And iPhone 8: One Excites But The Other Makes Us Go Yawn

Xiaomi’s First Pure Android Phone, The Mi A1, Is Certainly Not A Budget Phone

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.
