We don’t have long to wait until the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones are officially unveiled – just until Wednesday 29 March – but it looks like we’ll know all the specifications of the SGS8 beforehand.
The website WinFuture claims to have the entire spec list for the smaller of the phones (and several press photos) so you can have a browse of these and see if there’s anything there that tickles your fancy.
Nokia has announced its return to the global smartphone stage with the launch of the Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3, a trio of Android smartphones designed to attack the affordable segment of the market.
The Nokia 6 first launched in China as a JD.com exclusive and by all accounts, it was very well received. The Nokia 6 saw 1.3 million pre-registrations in 4 days and once it went on sale, demand outstripped supply.
Now this affordable Nokia comeback phone is coming to the rest of the world. Here’s everything you need to know about the Nokia 6.
One of the main problems that plagues smartphones, even still today, is battery life. If you leave your phone alone it could potentially last two days, but start watching videos, playing games or surfing the web and you’ll soon see that diminish.
If you’re a media hoarder and you long for better battery life, the LG X Power2 is for you. The new phone is due to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress and will be the first model in a new X series of smartphones that will incorporate premium features.
Samsung is getting ready to add a new member to its Galaxy Tab A family of slates in the near future. It will be called Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), and unsurprisingly you’ll see it sporting a 10.1-inch touchscreen.
The Wi-Fi-only iteration of this device will bear the model number SM-T580, while the LTE-capable unit will be the SM-T585. In fact, we’ve seen the T585 in a benchmark back in March, which is how a few of its specs got made public. Now a new leak brings us official renders for the tablet, as well as a full picture of its innards.
We’ve only recently seen a couple of flagship Huawei phones launched, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus, but there is talk of another device coming from the Chinese company that could overshadow them – at least where the camera is concerned.
The Huawei Mate 9 could come with 20-megapixel dual camera tech, says industry analyst Pan Jiutang. That would suggest its sensors would be far better than those in the P9, which features 12-megapixel dual cameras.
In early December Mobile-Dad leaked online some renders of the forthcoming OnePlus 3 – that may or may not be genuine – along with some specifications that at least sound plausible.
For now there is no concrete information on the possibility of a OnePlus 3 smartphone, since OnePlus itself has not confirmed it will even make one (although it would be highly unlikely that it didn’t).
The first generation of Dell’s Venue 8 tablet hit the market back in 2013. In January of this year the company launched the updated version that we have here, which comes with a faster Intel Atom X5 processor and 64-bit Windows 10 as standard.
So, how does this latest version measure up, and is it a good option for business users?
The Venue 8 Pro is available as Wi-Fi only or you can have a mobile data connection too. It’s powered by a 2.4GHz Intel Atom X5 Z8500 — the old model had the 1.8GHz Z7340. You get 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 64GB solid state hard drive and Wi-Fi as standard.
If the latest rumor is to hold true, HTC’s line-up is about to get very interesting. The Taiwanese manufacturer’s M series has always been known for housing flagship devices, but it seems there may be a new breed of HTC smartphones in the works.
This rumored handset is said to be named the HTC One X9. We have a set of stunning specs and a nice promotional flyer to go with this murmur, but we would be a bit wary of their accuracy due to the fact that the rumored components look more like they come from an M series handset. And we also can’t stand behind the sources so far.
The Samsung Galaxy J3 smartphone – which was spotted listed on Geekbench earlier last month – has passed the FCC hurdle, meaning it could be made official soon. The certification documents do not reveal much information except that the device, carrying a model number of SM-J3109, was tested for 3G, 2G, and LTE.
The Geekbench listing had revealed that the handset is powered by a Snapdragon 410 SoC with 64-bit Cortex-A53 CPU, and sports a 5-inch 720p display. It comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable internal memory.
Apple’s line of newly updated 5K Retina 27-inch iMacs with Skylake will support up to 64GB of RAM, an upgrade from the previous-generation 27-inch Retina iMacs that would only support a maximum of 32GB of RAM. According to OWC, The current 27-inch Retina iMac includes four memory slots that support up to 16GB of memory per slot for a total of 64GB.
Build-to-order options for the 27-inch Retina iMacs only allow it to be purchased from Apple with a maximum of 32GB RAM, but OWC will offer 16GB modules in 48GB and 64GB configurations for the new iMac. OWC plans to start selling its new 48 and 64GB kits tomorrow, and pricing is as follows:
