John McAfee might have shifted his business to capital investments after his antivirus company was acquired by Intel. He even had to go to court as he lost rights to use the McAfee brand name. The entrepreneur still has some obsession left for security.
McAfee, who is now the CEO of MGT Capital Investments, has uploaded the first prototype image of the “John McAfee Privacy Phone” on twitter which he calls the “world’s first truly private smartphone.”
HTC will unveil its new flagship Android smartphone on Tuesday 16 May but has already confirmed its name and one of the handset’s long-rumoured new features: squeezable sides.
The company has posted an official teaser video for the phone, entitled “HTC Squeeze the Brilliant U”, which follows up on a previous tweet and invitation to watch the launch event live.
Added to the invite for the launch event, received by Pocket-lint last week, it cements the name, “HTC U”.
Samsung’s next Galaxy S devices are bow available in the form of the S8 and the S8+. The big question is, how do they compare to their competition?
Here is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus stacked up against the Pixel and Pixel XL. You can also read our separate features on how they compare to the LG G6, as well as how they compare to their predecessors, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
Details on the new entry-level Moto E phones from Lenovo-owned Motorola have leaked out.
The upcoming budget smartphones, likely called a Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus, will be Android 7.1 devices, according to the German website Winfuture.de. The smaller Moto E4 will not be too different from last year’s Moto E3, as it’ll feature the same 5-inch HD display and 2,800mAh battery. It will however have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, whereas the Moto E3 only had 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
It is easy to look back on technology changes and see that we had plenty of warnings that we clearly missed at the time. VCRs gave way to DVD players, which in turn have given way to streaming services. Brick cellphones evolved into flip phones, which were swapped out for two-way pager phones and then wiped out by the iPhone model. Tape players gave way to the Walkman CD player, which gave way to the iPod, which also ended up in the iPhone model.
Sometimes, trends that seem obvious fail to materialize. Laser disks never got to critical mass before DVDs arrived on the scene, and 3D TV, which seemed so obviously next, wasn’t.
Customers who were waiting for the arrival of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ immediately placed their pre-orders hoping to get a taste of what could be the best Android flagship of this year. With its highly detailed resolution and ‘Infinity Display’ that practically overlays towards the sides of the smartphone, this was going to be the closest thing to a perfect smartphone right?
Not quite, as several users started complaining of a red tint problem that was developed on the display for both devices.
At Mobile World Congress, Samsung debuted its Galaxy Book, a power tablet running Windows 10 with a snap-on keyboard that looked to improve on Huawei’s Matebook.
Despite promising specs and integration of the device giant’s new S Pen peripheral, it wasn’t clear when the tablet would be released. But with little notice, Samsung announced that the LTE model of the Book will hit Verizon Wireless stores on April 21st, with WiFi versions coming to general retailers on May 21st.
Less than two weeks after the specs leaked online, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi 6 flagship smartphone. The Mi 6 doesn’t quite compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG G6 when it comes to screen-to-body ratio, nor does it follow in the design footsteps of Xiaomi’s own Mi MIX.
The Mi 6 instead has a four-sided curved glass screen, with bezels top and bottom and slim ones flanking the 5.15-inch full HD display.
Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were announced at the end of March, bringing two new fabulous flagships to the smartphone party. How do they compare to their competition though?
We’ve put them up against the LG G6, the Pixels and the iPhone 7 in previous features but here we are looking at how the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus compare to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
Lenovo has a couple new budget devices up its sleeve.
While at MWC 2017 in February, Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus for £169 and £259, respectively. If you thought Lenovo was done with affordable smartphones for the year, you’re wrong, according to VentureBeat’s Evan Blass. He has claimed Motorola is planning to release two more entry-level Android 7.0 Nougat smartphones (presumably this year).
