All other hypes and rumors were crushed when Oppomart listed the OnePlus 3 on their website with a price tag of $369. The product was marked as "out of stock," but it gave away almost everything about the phone with official pictures and detailed specs! You will find the "published" specifications of the OnePlus 3 below.


Display: 5.5" 1080p


Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU and Adreno 530 GPU


RAM: 4GB/6GB (DDR4)


In-built storage: 32GB/64GB/128GB UFS 2.0


16-megapixel rear camera (Sony IMX298) with optical image stabilization


8-megapixel front camera


Fingerprint scanner in the Home button


Support for 4G LTE-FDD and multimode modem


Battery: 3,650mAh with Quick Charging


OS: Oxygen OS built on Android 6.0 Marshmallow



If this turns out to be true (which is very likely), then OnePlus is all set to deliver another stellar product to its customers. However, we think that the $369 price tag is meant for the entry level variant of the OnePlus 3, so if you want the beastly version with 6GB of RAM, you might have to shell out more. Do you like what you see? What do you think the beefiest variant of the OnePlus 3 would be priced at?

As the hype is now over the arguably cheapest flagship smartphone for the year 2017 is out, let's now take a look at the best and the worst parts of the OnePlus 5.


The Right


The combination of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 8GB or RAM and 128GB of internal storage are specifications that no other phone on the planet can deliver at the moment. Consider the fact that the Galaxy S8+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which is its closest competitor in terms of specs, costs more than a thousand dollars in China and India. The OnePlus 5 with 2 extra gigs of RAM and a brilliant dual camera setup costs about $539! Say what you will, no other phone can beat the OnePlus 5 in terms of price-to-performance value. Add all of this to the super smooth and ultra useful Oxygen OS and we have an instant winner on our hands.


The Wrong


It looks like an iPhone 7 Plus and that's not a good thing. In a world where a lot of people blame Android smartphones for copying Apple iPhones, the OnePlus 5 took a step backward by copying the iPhone 7 Plus in terms of the design and losing its own unique appeal in the process. Also, there was the initial false claim of 2X optical zoom (it's actually 1.6X as it was found later) and an AMOLED display that needed to be QHD this year.


Should You Buy it?


To be honest, nothing can match the feeling of actually using a Galaxy S8/S8+ and its curved QHD+ Super AMOLED display and bezel-less design, but then again those phones cost twice as much (unless you get it on a deal). Having said that, there is no smartphone in existence today that can match the experience offered by the OnePlus 5 at under $550. If that's your budget, you just cannot go wrong with this one.

As we reported earlier, there will probably be only one variant of the Galaxy Note 7 this year and it will have an Edge display. Although the specifications are more or less out by this point, we can never be sure until and unless we actually hear an official announcement on August 2. Nevertheless, here are the important bits from what we know about the upcoming Note so far.


CPU - Exynos 8890 (Overclocked) for Europe and Snapdragon 823 for the US


RAM - 6GB


Display - Quad High Definition (1440p) Super AMOLED Dual Edge display (5.8-inch curved screen)


Battery - 4,000mAh


Rear camera - The same 12-megapixel camera as seen on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but with better software


It may also sport a first of its kind iris scanner, an USB Type-C port and IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. There was and possibly still is a bit of confusion regarding the type of display that the upcoming Note will sport, but all major signs and reports indicate that only an Edge variant will be made available this year. If you are interested, check out our Galaxy Note 7 specifications page for a more detailed list of specs.

After all the speculation, rumors and leaks that had been surrounding the two upcoming handsets for months, they are finally here. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the MWC 2018 yesterday and here's everything that you need to know about the two handsets.


The Big Change


Perhaps one of the biggest changes which the S-series saw this year with the S9 and the S9+ was the stark separation between the regular and the "Plus" model. Following Apple's footsteps, the S9 will now come with a comparatively inferior single camera setup, while only the S9+ will be sporting the dual camera setup. Additionally, the S9 will just be having 4GB of RAM, while the S9+ will enjoy better multitasking with 6GB of RAM.


Variable Aperture


The lenses on smartphone cameras are usually so small that variable aperture has never really been a feasible option, until now. Apparently, both the S9 and the S9+ will be featuring a camera with variable aperture. Which means that when there's ample natural light to work with the user will be able to use f/2.4 for sharper images, but when the amount of light available is too low, the lens will switch to an ultra-high aperture size of f/1.5 to allow a great deal of light to enter though the lens.


Super Slow Motion


Just like the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, the S9 and S9+ are capable of capturing super slow-motion videos at 960fps, but at 720p only. It lasts just for a few seconds, but kicks in at the right time by automatically detecting motion.


Stereo Speakers


Not only are the speakers louder this year, the earpiece will also act as a second speaker, making it a stereo combination. The actual sound quality is not much different from what we saw on the Galaxy S8 last year though.


Repositioned Fingerprint Scanner


The fingerprint scanner has been repositioned under the camera this year around, which is an expected and welcome change.


AR Emoji


Yup, it's quite similar to Apple's Animojis, with a few added features. Now you will be able to create animated versions of yourself with the AR Emoji feature on an Android smartphone as well, if that sort of thing appeals to you of course.


More Stuff


The S9 and the S9+ look quite similar to the S8 and S8+ with their identical QHD+, 18.5:9, Super AMOLED displays at 5.8 and 6.2-inches respectively, but both of them are packing much more powerful hardware underneath, thanks to either the Exynos 9810 SoC or the SD 845 SoC. All other specs from the S8 and S8+ are almost the same and Samsung has still retained the 3.5mm audio jack thankfully! Color options for the devices include Midnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple in the US.


Availability


Although the pricing details have not yet been revealed, the phones will become available in stores from March 16. As always, pre-orders will open much sooner.

lexus hoverboard

 

We reported before about the Lexus Hoverboard and showed couple of teasers that were published on YouTube showing this cool thing Hovering on air.

 

Is it Real ? YES... Lexus has officially unveiled its Hoverboard in Spain. It's sadly not as cool as we expected. firstly, It can't be used anywhere you want... it needs a special "Track" in the ground like the train.

In the video ads, Lexus build a special Park for it, The park is made out of wood that has been painted to look like cement, with an embedded magnetic track that had clearly been covered with some sort of plaster in an effort to conceal it. Strike one: the Lexus board can't be used anywhere you want. Marty McFly would be disappointed.

One more let-down, Lexus hoverboard works with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and magnets, which means it needs to be cooled down to around -180 degrees Celsius using liquid nitrogen in order to achieve levitation. so you gonna need a fresh supply of liquid nitrogen with you all the time. You can watch the full story in the video below.
