Inarguably, the OnePlus 5 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2017 and even if you are a diehard fan of Samsung or Apple, chances are that you are taking a look at this article now just to see what the Chinese manufacturer might have cooked up this year. We won't disappoint you because we do have a lot of info on the OnePlus 5 for you today.


The Slimmest Flagship


According to CEO Pete Lau, the upcoming smartphone is going to be the slimmest flagship smartphone ever made, but that slimness will not come at the cost of performance or functionality in any way. However, there is a bit of confusion regarding whether the OnePlus 5 will indeed be the slimmest flagship smartphone in the world or just the slimmest flagship ever made by the company.


The Phone Beneath



In the latest teaser, we see a phone that is smaller in dimensions than the OnePlus 3, hidden beneath the OnePlus 3T. While this serves to show that it will be smaller and slimmer than the 3T, nothing else was revealed.


The Release Date



A "leaked" poster on Weibo shows the release date of an OnePlus device to be June 15; whether or not it can be trusted is something that is beyond us at the moment.


What We Know


The OnePlus 5 will without a shred of doubt, will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540 combo, helped by at least 6GB or even 8GB of RAM for an unprecedented multitasking experience. The 5.5-inch screen size will be retained with a bumped up QHD resolution. 64GB should be available from the start and a 128GB variant could be making an appearance later in the year as well.

Vivo is no longer just another Chinese manufacturer trying to copy Apple; as a matter of fact, it has not only risen as a global smartphone OEM to reckon with, one can go as far as saying that the Chinese company has managed to beat both Samsung and Apple when it comes to introducing true innovation. If you are wondering why anyone would think so, then you probably don't know that Vivo has already showcased the in-display, under the screen fingerprint scanner with its Vivo X20 Plus UD smartphone, that both Apple and Samsung have failed to do, even after repeated attempts by the latter in the last year or so. As if that was not impressive enough, take a look at the leaked shots of this smartphone from Vivo, which will likely be coming in with the in-screen fingerprint scanner and this gorgeous, truly bezel-less display.



Sources are unsure whether this is the Vivo Xplay 7 or not, but it could very well be. It would be really interesting to see if Vivo also packs in a 4K resolution in that beautiful display, just like the rumors had been predicting. If they do, that would make Vivo the only company apart from Sony to have a smartphone with a 4K display. It is quite possible that the upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC will be powering the device as well, alongside an internal storage capacity of 256GB/512GB. Would you buy this beauty if it became available in your country?

Finally Xiaomi revealed the Mi 5 at the MWC 2016 event held in Barcelona after close to two years of development. This was one of the devices that had garnered lot of attention as a successor to the Mi 4. While the whole world of mobile enthusiasts were waiting for the launch of Mi 5, Xiaomi released the Mi 4i and not-so-exciting Mi 4c. This way Mi 5 as a flagship device remained as a dream for a long time. Surprisingly, there were lot of rumours about the launch of this device, but 24th February, 2016 was the date on which we finally witnessed the launch.


So what exactly is packaged in the Mi 5? Before getting into that, let's first check out the three variants - Standard, High, and Exclusive. In terms of design all of these versions are more or less similar, featuring curved edges in the back in order to make it easy to hold. The difference comes in the form of build material - the first two have a refined hybrid of metal and Gorilla Glass 4.0 and the Exclusive variant has ceramics and glass.

Just when we thought phones were reaching tablet category with 5.5-inch screen size, bezel-less smartphones from Xiaomi and Samsung pushed the boundary much further than it was ever thought to be feasible without sacrificing portability and usability. However, reports are now indicating that the upcoming Taimen could even dwarf the likes of the Mi Mix and the Galaxy S8.

 

 

Leaked on Geekbench, the Taimen will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip and 4GB of RAM, with Android O running out of the box. However the intriguing aspect of the smartphone which you see in this article (possibly) is the name itself. Google has always used fish names (go figure!) to code name its devices and the size of the actual fish in real life always had some sort of a connection to the actual size of the phones. What this basically means is the bigger the fish, the larger the phone and the Taimen is a lot bigger than the Marlin (Pixel XL 5.4-inch). The original report by Forbes suggests that it could also be a tablet but maintains that it is most likely not as Google has traditionally used Nvidia Tegra chips for its tablets.

Sony Xperia Z4


Sony skipped the MWC 2015 and didn't announce any new device, many of its fans are getting impatient to see the Xperia Z4. So far, all we got is rumors and nothing is confirmed. The Japanese tech giant is definitely taking its time with it's 2015 flagship.

 

Today brings a new leak, which allegedly reveals the sony Xperia Z4 dimensions 146.3 x 71.9 x 7.2mm, which is almost identical to the Xperia Z3, which measures 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm. Its display should be 5.2-inches, so the body doesn't really need to be bigger.

 

 

 

 

The Xperia Z4 rumored to pack a Snapdragon 810 chipset and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, along with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 430 GPU. It has been suggested that Sony will launch the Xperia Z4 in both 1080p and QHD versions.
