Who would have thought that the three-camera Samsung Galaxy A7 announced last month was a prelude something even mind-blowing? I am talking about the just-announced Samsung Galaxy A9 which packs not two, not three, but four freaking cameras around the back. Four! Imagine that. Suddenly, it makes Light Camera’s ambitious 9-camera smartphone plausible. Anyways, wasting your precious time, here’s what the rear quad camera’s highlights: Continue reading Samsung Has Just Announced A Four-Camera Galaxy Smartphone. Four!
Well, this is it. Razer much anticipated follow up to its first smartphone, Razer Phone 2, is official. Aesthetically, it still retains the square, either you love or hate it super straight form, but now, instead all matte black, it is glossy black – thanks to new glass back and it is now Chroma-enabled. It won’t go all My Little Pony on you though; the Razer’s signature RGB lighting system for gaming appears on the logo around the back of the device, affording the Razer triple-headed snake logo with 16.8 million colors and serving as a visual cue for app notifications. Continue reading Razer Phone 2 Goes Official, Has Chroma And No Notch
Today is the day those in denial face up to reality. I am talking about those who refused believe the previous leaks, including an unboxing video, of the Google Pixel 3. Everything was put out there and as such, today’s even was just a confirmation of sort. So, yeah, Google Pixel 3 is official and so is the briefly rumored Google Slate and a brand new smart device called Google Home Hub. The latter is basically Google’s answer to Amazon Echo Show, but less the camera because, privacy. Privacy, among other things, is Google promised to look out for your “digital well-being.” Continue reading Google Pixel 3 Announced Along With Google Slate And Google Home Hub
It is comforting to know that among the increasing smartphone prices, there are still companies pushing out affordable devices that are not too shabby in both specifications and the look. The Honor 8X you see here is one such devices that really should have Superman’s ’S’ emblem on it because, ’S’ in the fictional Kryptonian’s world is the symbol of ‘hope’ and 8X gives us hope that we do not need to sacrifice our kidneys for a device that will go outdated in a year or two time. Continue reading Honor Unveiled Honor 8X With “Top-end Configuration” For 250 Euro
You know it is coming and here it is, the new LG V40 ThinQ. This latest in LG’s V series is, again, touted as a “multimedia powerhouse.” Powered by today’s flagship SoC, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform paired with 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage, the V40 ThinQ (stylized as V40 ThinQ, as before) gets a 6.4-inch FullVision OLED display that touts even narrower bezels, along with a three-camera rear shooter. Continue reading LG Announced 5-camera LG V40 ThinQ Smartphone And New “Hybrid Watch”
No. We are not few months late on this. And yes, this is the Mi 8, but a new edition called Mi 8 Under Display Fingerprint Scanner edition. What makes this new device from Xiaomi stands out is not just because it is one of the few handsets out there to sport an under display fingerprint scanner, but it is also the fact that it is the world’s first handset that has a pressure sensitive under display fingerprint scanner. In addition, it is the first smartphone to touts dual frequency GPS that claimed to have an accuracy of 30 centimeters (a little under a foot), as oppose to 5 meters (16 feet) with currency smartphone GPS technology. That right there is indeed a ‘wow’. Continue reading Xiaomi Mi 8 Has Two World’s First Features You Don’t Want To Miss Out
At this point, there are only two mainstream smartphones that has a three-camera setup. They are the Huawei P20 Pro and the Porsche Design Mate RS. Both devices are in the flagship realm which means they are not cheap (especially, the Mate RS). But fret not if you a Samsung fan who is down with a 3-camera setup smartphone because, last week, Samsung quietly surprised the market with a non-quite-a-flagship device that has not one, not two, but three cameras. Continue reading Samsung Quietly Surprised The Market With A 3-Camera Galaxy A7
Here’s a deal which we find it too good not to share. The world’s first notched device, the much touted Essential Phone by one of the ‘fathers’ of Android operating system, has its price slashed on Amazon. The Halo Gray version of the 128 GB Essential Phone is selling at $325.98, which is roughly 35 percent off its original sticker of $499.99. That’s quite a deal there. Now, you see why we find it a sin not to let you guys on it? OK. It is not cheapest device in the market, but considering this used to be the flagship, it may be worth the dough. Continue reading Amazon Slashes Exclusive Halo Gray Essential Phone 128 GB To $326
It has been awhile since we look at BLU Products’ devices. We apologize for that. There are just way too many Android phones out there, but today, we felt compelled to let you in on BLU Products’ two new devices because, the duo makes Apple new iPhones’ pricing even more ridiculous. The two devices in question are the BLU Vivo XI+ (pronounced as Eleven Plus) and Vivo XI. The design on Vivo XI (and the XI+) is rather rudimentary (both shares the same design, btw). There is really nothing radical. That is not to say they are not eye-pleasing; they are. Just that these days, phones look pretty much alike and so, you know, there’s really nothing to talk about. Continue reading Why Splurge When BLU Vivo XI And XI+ Costs Just $219.99 And Up?
Rumors prior to the unveiling of the new iPhones suggested that the new small devices from Apple may be a tad ‘cheaper’ than its outgoing predecessor, but as the unveiling last week have showed us, the rumored ‘cheaper’ pricing was not true. If anything, Apple is pushing the limits of what consumers are willing to pay. As consumers are still coming to terms with the pricing of the new iPhones, China’s very own electronics giant Xiaomi has taken the opportunity to poke fun at the iPhone’s high prices by introducing its own XR, XS, XS Max product bundles that are priced as the same as the new iPhones. These cheeky folks really see opportunity, don’t they? Continue reading Xiaomi Poke Fun At New iPhones’ High Prices With XR, XS And XS Max Bundles
