The next flagship smartphone from Huawei is coming and if the rumors have any truth to them, it's going to be a very capable device. Leaks on Weibo seem to be indicating that the Huawei Mate 9 will be powered by the manufacturer's in-house HiSilicon Kirin 960 Octa-core 64-bit processor and six gigabytes of RAM. There will allegedly be different versions of the Mate 9 and the 6GB RAM version will sport 256GB of internal storage to go with all that memory and processing power. There could also be a more modest version of the smartphone that will sport the same chipset, but 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. All versions might also be powered by a big 4,000mAh battery.


Camera has been the highlight of the Mate 9 in all recent rumors since they have partnered up with Leica, the German camera maker for providing a rumoured dual camera setup at the back. The two 20-megapixel sensors from Leica will supposedly work together to provide stunning details even in low light, thanks to the f/2.0 aperture. The 5.9-inch (QHD resolution) metal-clad phablet will run on Android 7.0 and the OEM will make sure that customers get a LOT of colors to choose from while buying the smartphone. Apart from the 256GB/6GB version ($700/4700 yuan) and the 128GB/4GB version ($580/3899 yuan), there will also be a more affordable 64GB/4GB version ($480/3199 yuan) as well.

It has been a long time since the rumours about Vivo's next gen flagship smartphone surfaced. In fact this news goes back to 2014 and at that time they were supposed to be one of the pioneers in implementing Snapdragon 810 SoC. Quite evident that it didn't happen and now Snapdragon 810 is no way Qualcomm's best chip. At the same time people are looking forward to the XPlay 5, which is supposed to be available from March 1. At this point one important feature has been changed to another - this device will be the first one to come with 6 GB RAM.


But, don't consider this as a rumor. This has been leaked from the AnTuTu 6 benchmark test and even though we don't see 6GB being mentioned clearly, the 162,610 points mentioned in the leak is close to 30K more than other devices available in the database. We are also not exactly sure whether 2GB of extra memory can result in such a boost. In addition to this, there is a banner which states that the XPlay 5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6GB RAM. Also there are speculations about a 5.5 inch display too.


UPDATE: A tipster has revealed another piece of info about the Vivo XPlay 5 - this smartphone will feature Hi-Fi 3.0, which is most probably a cutting-edge audio processing chip, similar to rest of the Vivo devices like the X6 Plus.

Do you like the curved displays on the S6 Edge, S7 Edge or the "hot" new Note 7? If you do, we have good news for you. If you don't, well, you better start developing a taste for them, because Samsung is all for curves now and the flat screen flagship variants might soon be a thing of the past. According to the Korea Herald, Samsung will not only be ditching the flat screen displays, but also the term "Edge" altogether in 2017. They further state that those curved displays will come in the same 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch size variants, as seen in the last two years. The dual-edge displays are already being manufactured by Samsung Display as per the report.


Allegedly, this decision was taken by the OEM after the S7 Edge outsold the S7 by a significant margin, in spite of being the more expensive one among the two. If you are not familiar with other rumors about the Galaxy S8, know that they are there and they all sound good (as they usually do!). A 4K display for amazing VR experience, a significantly more powerful Exynos 8895 SoC and a dual rear camera setup are all part of the rumor mill, but it's way too early to consider them anything more than that yet.

It's a known fact that Samsung is revamping its Galaxy A series and is bringing a refreshing design and some cool new features to the A-series smartphones. Till now, the 2016 variants of the Galaxy A3, A5, A7, A8, and A9 have surfaced online and we have seen the metal-and-glass body of some of these phones.


And now a user agent profile has managed to reveal the screen resolution of one of the device. The Galaxy A5 (2016) will be sporting 720p resolution which also happens to be the as that of its previous version.


The user agent profile doesn't tell us anything else about the device, but as per speculations the screen size will hover around 5" or 5.2". The new Galaxy A5 would also be powered by the in-house Exynos chipset with octa-core processor, backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.


The camera in the back would be a 13 MP unit, while the camera in the front will have 5 MP resolution. The battery capacity will be 2,900 mAh as per the FCC. The smartphone will support Android 5.1 Lollipop. And like the first generation A5, it will also sport a full metal body.

 



Recently, there have been a lot of rumors about the Galaxy S7 and its possible screen size. Some sources hinted at a mammoth 6 inch screen while others "confirmed" a more standard 5.5 inch device. Some even fuelled our imagination with the lures of a curved Super AMOLED UHD display!


We decided to clear up the confusion as best as we could and according to ITSKINS, the rumors are mostly true. There will be three size variants; a 5.1 inch version, a 5.5 inch version and a gigantic 6 inch version. In order to make things less confusing for its customers, Samsung will not provide a curved display with the 5.1 inch Galaxy S7. The 5.5 inch phone in the meanwhile will only sport a curved display. The 6 inch Galaxy S7, which is bordering on tablet category, will be available both in curved as well as flat display options.


After experimenting with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and the Note Edge, it looks like the Korean Electronics giant might be shuffling its designs once again. Whether the curved displays will see more success than the "Edged" screens, we will find out in a few months' time.

Rumors are circling from reliable sources that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be seen on European shores shortly, but without its younger cousin, the Note Edge+ version. The Note 6 is now expected to be sold in the UK in August, according to an internal UK network operator source who has been privy to the future plans of the network.


This is a change in strategy from the Korean electronics giant which did the opposite in Europe for the Note 5 and S6 edge+ previously. Customers were unhappy about that decision and clearly Samsung were listening.


The sales of the S6 edge+ haven't been stellar according to certain sources. Clearly Samsung is having a rethink about where the edge series is most likely to find success rather than releasing it far and wide. This won't suit consumers who like to be presented with the most options available, but for a company with its seemingly endless handset variations, this kind of adjustment almost seems inevitable.


The Galaxy S7 is expected to arrive near the middle of this year and its 5.5-inch screen size isn't thought to be much smaller than with the Galaxy S7 edge+. This lack of differentiation coupled with the higher price for the edge+ range could well be the reason why sales of the edge+ haven't impressed lately.

 



After forming the GVRA with Sony, Acer, Facebook, HTC and Google, Samsung is reportedly looking to launch its first ever AR (augmented reality) headset. Additionally, the company is also in the process of bringing forth the next Gear VR headset as well. Apparently, it was vice-president Sung-Hoon Hong himself who had revealed the aforementioned information at the Virtual Reality Summit in San Diego.


"Samsung's hologram technology is really, really realistic. It looks really touchable," - Sung-Hoon Hong.


In more of what he said at the summit, it might have been indicated that the next Gear VR headset is going to debut at the Mobile World Congress in February, 2017. Considering that it was only a few months back that Samsung had launched the last Gear VR, along with the disastrous Galaxy Note 7, we suggest that you take this news with a pinch of salt.


If you are excited about the augmented reality project, the report mentions that Samsung is planning to target businesses with this upcoming headset, rather than direct consumers. Even then, it is too early in the day to predict where and in which way the AR project will be heading in the future. A startup named Magic Leap was mentioned by Hoon according to the report and speculations suggest that this has something to do with the AR project in question here.

The iPhone 8 and the Galaxy Note 8 are on top of every smartphone rumor list these days and for good reason too; these two are the biggest smartphones that will hit the stores in the second half of the year and it's only natural for their rumors to be everywhere. Today we have the Galaxy Note 8 in our sights and although this particular leak doesn't really have any accompanying images to support its claims, it comes from the famous leakster Roland Quandt on Twitter.

 

He is claiming that he has inside info about the upcoming Galaxy Note 8's colors and according to that information, it will come in three colors (at least initially). The colors are Midnight Black, Orchid Grey and Deep Blue. It is to be noted that the "Deep Blue" variant will likely be different from the Cobalt Blue color we saw introduced with the Galaxy Note 7 last year. Read the tweet below.

 

"Samsung Galaxy Note 8 coming in Black, Orchid Grey and a new Deep Blue. At least."

 

Samsung may also release other colors in different regions, just as hinted by Quandt, but whether or not they will all be launched simultaneously on August 23rd, remains to be seen.

Goodbye Evleaks, He was the one who first shared to the world, among other things, that Nokia is working on an Android phone, and it was he who showed us the first images of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2. He gave us the first image of the HTC One M8 and was first to show the Nvidia Shield Tablet to the world. Most recently, he's been showing us a stream of images of the yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy F.

 

Evan Blass, the man behind the infamous Twitter channel, @evleaks, has been steadily supplying the phone industry with fresh leaks of images of yet unannounced devices. Tech journalists and phone manufacturers have been following his Twitter with equal eagerness in the past two years.

 

 

Evan however has just announced that he's about to retire @evleaks, which currently has about 187,000 followers. However he said that he's unable to properly monetize it and with his health progressively deteriorating, he feels like he needed to prepare better for the future.

The US variants of the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact will be made available in the next month and they won't feature a fingerprint sensor. The suitable placement of the sensor in an elongated power button on the side of the phone was one of the major factors contributing to its popularity. But, it won't be made available in the US versions of these devices.


As per Sony it was a business decision to discard the sensor and to us it surely seems like a completely unexpected move. Certainly it won't contribute to the success of these devices in North america. We hope Sony has a rock solid reason behind this.


Sony's primary concern right now is to get things moving in the US, considering the plethora of problems the Xperia Z4v had during its US launch and problems that made Verizon ditch the device completely. Sony had to release the same device after few months under the Xperia Z3+ brand on Amazon and B&H. But it seems like Sony is on the verge of another botched up product launch.


There is a major unanswered question: why would Sony get rid of one of most popular feature from a flagship device? We'd have wait and watch to check out how the story will unfold and how would Sony tackle the any kind of adverse situation.
