The OnePlus 3 is an extremely well made smartphone, especially considering the price and it's about to get even better. Engadget has received confirmation from the head of OnePlus's software department, Brian Yoon, that a beta build for the OnePlus community will be ready by the end of November. What this also means is that the final build of Android 7.0 with the new Oxygen OS on top will be reaching OnePlus 3 smartphones all over the world via OTA by the end of 2016. Considering that 2016 only has one more month left in it, it would be safe to conclude that the final build will land on the OnePlus 3 next month.


OnePlus isn't a company that's known for providing speedy updates, but that seems to have changed thanks to a pretty big decision. They have merged the development teams responsible for maintaining and updating the HydrogenOS in China with their counterpart for the international OxygenOS to create one unified strong software department that will provide their customers with much faster updates. In fact, even the OnePlus 2 will receive the upgrade to Android Nougat, later in 2017.

Xiaomi is famous for bringing top end specs to their smartphones and sell them at half or even less than the similarly powered smartphones from the big boys like Samsung, HTC or Sony. However, all of its smartphones are usually available via online retailers and their own websites only. Xiaomi is about to change that trend with the Redmi 3S+, which according to the company, is going to be an offline-only device. What this means is that the mid-range smartphone priced at Rs 9,499 ($140 approximately) is not going to be sold online anywhere, but will only be available in actual brick and mortar stores under the Make in India initiative.


The decision was apparently taken by the Chinese OEM in order to reach Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in the country, where online shopping is not very feasible or popular yet. We can clearly see that it is actually a pricier variant of the Redmi 3S/3S Prime without any real improvements. The higher price is obviously a result of offline retailing expenses, but the phone still offers decent value for the price. Check out the major specifications below.


Display: 5-inch 720p
SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (1.4GHz) Octa-core 64-bit processor
RAM: 2GB
Internal Storage: 32GB
Rear/front camera: 13mp/5mp
Battery: 4,100mAh
Misc: Fingerprint scanner, VoLTE, etc.

The Xiaomi Mi Max has just been announced and it is going to be a huge one, quite literally! There will be three versions of the handset with slightly different hardware and internal storage capacities, but all versions will sport the same 6.44-inch 1080p display with a ppi count of 342. The enormous phone measures in at 173.1mm × 88.3mm × 7.5mm and weighs in at 203 grams. Initially, the device will only be available in China at a price of RMB1499 ($230 approx.), RMB1699 ($260 approx.) and RMB1999 ($307 approx.) for the respective models.


From what we know so far, all three models will share the same 6.44-inch FHD display, 3 gigs of RAM 5mp/16mp front and rear cameras, expandable memory, fingerprint scanner, metal build, USB 2.0 port and the massive 4850 mAh battery. Difference between the model priced at RMB1499 and the one that is priced at RMB1699 lies in the chipset used and the in-built memory. If you are ready to pay the higher price, you can own the 64GB model with the octacore Snapdragon 652 chipset. The cheaper one on the other hand will offer you less internal storage (32GB), as well as the slightly weaker Snapdragon 650 hexacore SoC. Xiaomi is offering the MI Max 128GB version at RMB1999 and this one will come with 4GB of RAM instead of 3GB. The SD 652 SoC will power this one as well while all other specifications will remain the same.


The Max will be made available for purchase in China, starting May 17, but no such plans for the US have been declared yet. If you really like the specifications and the "giant" form factor, there is always the option of importing one though. What do you think? Would you like to see the Xiaomi Mi Max being launched in your country or would you give it a pass?

As 2017 approaches, the new trend for the smartphones of tomorrow seem to be edge-to-edge bezel-less displays. Following the footsteps of the Xiaomi Mi Mix, Huawei is rumoured to be the next manufacturer to release a bezel-less smartphone and it might just arrive sooner than you think. The Honor Magic (as it will possibly be called), could be revealed on December 17. It could have already been out and about, had the original release date of December 7 not been pushed back.


If the latest leak is to be believed, then the Honor Magic will be priced higher than a mid-high end gaming PC, two or three average laptops and even the Apple iPhone 7 Plus 256GB variant! JingDong has the Magic priced at RMB 9,999, which equates to around USD 1441/Euro 1385/1162 pounds. Let's just hope that this listing price is the result of an exaggerated pre-release hype rather than a reflection of the actual official price tag. Also take a look at what the Magic promises to bring with it, as per leaks and rumors.



Curved Super AMOLED edge-to-edge 4K display made by Samsung
A huge battery with charging tech that pumps up the battery from 0 to 50% in five minutes
Dual rear cameras
Included stylus
Fingerprint scanner below the curved glass
3D glass back cover


We are not entirely sure about the authenticity of these rumors, but the image that you see above seems legitimate. However, some of the other specs, as well as the price seem like, well... "Magic!"

It is now official; Qualcomm's next flagship-grade SoC is coming to the Consumer Electronics Show next week. The debut was disclosed by Qualcomm itself on Twitter, when the company twitted, "We're powering up for #CES2017 with #Snapdragon 835."



As we reported earlier, the SD 835 chip is going to be based on Samsung's 10nm process and will be manufactured by Samsung as well. The Adreno 540 GPU within the chip is going to be 30% more powerful and 40% more power-efficient than the current-gen Qualcomm flagship GPU, the Adreno 530. The default clock speed of the CPU will be set at 2.2GHz, although, overclocking by some of the manufacturers is expected.



All devices powered by the SD 835 will support Quick Charge 4.0 for 5 hours of battery life in just 5 minutes. Plug it in for 15 minutes and your device should reach 50% from 0%, according to the claims put forward by the company. It would be interesting to see how much of this turns out to be true in real life though, as batteries do vary in size.



Although I am sure that most manufacturers will be opting for the Snapdragon 835 SoC as their preferred choice in 2017, as of now, only the Samsung Galaxy S8, the LG G6 and the Xiaomi Mi6 are guaranteed to host the chip.

Nokia has recently been at the front of tech news all around the internet, as its comeback is no more a matter of speculations but something that has already begun. The Nokia 6 was recently released in an online flash sale that was exclusive to China. It got sold out in under a minute! As you can imagine, that's exactly the kind of start that HMD was hoping for. Unfortunately, the Nokia 8 and its flagship specs turned out to be nothing more than a rumor. Nevertheless, we have recently received reliable (somewhat) news from GFXBench that Nokia might be in the process of launching a huge tablet. How huge you ask? 18.4-inches to be exact!


The 2.65kg tablet will reportedly be launched with beefy specs such as a gigantic 18.5-inch QHD display with 2560 × 1440 pixels resolution, Qualcomm 835 SoC with the Adreno 540 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Check out the screenshot from GFXBench above to see more details. If this turns out to be true, will you be buying one? How much would you pay for this device?

If the rumors are to be believed, then HTC could be Google's partner for making at least one of the Nexus devices this year. The HTC 10 was received very well around the world by critics and that is the main reason as to why many are of the opinion that the next Nexus is possibly going to be best one made so far.


A concept model of the rumored HTC Nexus that is based on the HTC 10 has been made by a Reddit user. As expected, it shows the fingerprint scanner to be on the back of the smartphone, just below the rear camera. A metallic body much like the HTC 10 and two front firing speakers from the Taiwanese flagship also make their way to this concept model of the Nexus 2016. The big Nexus branding at the back reminds us of the fact that we are looking at the next Nexus and not the HTC 10.


Another rumor suggests that HTC will be making not one, but two devices for Google this year. The first one will be taking the place of the LG-made Nexus 5X, while the second one will replace the Huawei-made Nexus 6P. If the speculations are correct, then the devices will be using 5" and 5.5" displays respectively.


As is always the case with Nexus devices, they will both be launched with Android N right out of the box. Since Android N has in-built support for pressure-sensitive displays and functions, we expect features similar to Apple's 3D Touch to show up on the latest Nexus smartphones. Google is allegedly working on a Nexus VR device as well, so we expect the Nexus 2016 smartphones to also support virtual reality. We should get to know what's what before the devices get their expected release prior to Q3, 2016.

 



The last few years have not been kind on HTC and 2015 was no exception either. Even great models like the HTC One M7 and the One M8 were not as successful as they should have been or were expected to be, but the HTC One M9 failed miserably. Often called a "beautiful disappointment," the M9 had many things going for it like an aesthetic design and the latest Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood. However, a buggy user experience, heating issues and poor camera performance went against it. This brought the sales down way below expectations.


From what has been seen in the financial reports for 2015, it looks like HTC's sales went down by a disastrous 57 percent in December 2015, when compared with December 2014. In fact, June 2015 was the worst month for HTC in terms of sales as the difference in sales between June 2014 and June 2015 shows a massive 60 percent decline. After June, September exhibits the second biggest decline in sales for 2015 at 57.5 percent. Now that the calendar year has come to a close, HTC has lost a total of 35.24 percent sales in year-to-year comparison with last year.


The new One A9 managed to improve things a little for the Taiwanese manufacturer, in spite of being criticized for copying the iPhone blatantly. Let's hope that the upcoming HTC One M10 and the HTC Vive boosts up business for the company because HTC really needs it.

It is no secret that a lot depends on the Galaxy S8 and its success for Samsung as they continue to struggle against the huge losses suffered recently. In fact, we are pretty sure that Samsung is going to leave no stone unturned in order to make the upcoming smartphone as close to perfection as it can be. In spite of Samsung officially trying to keep a lid on things, rumors have been getting out about the S8 ever since day one and the latest rumor suggests that the Korean giant could be opting for a flexible OLED panel this time around.


The alleged Full-Screen flexible OLED panel with a resolution of 4K will bend around the eyes to make VR experience as immersive as it possibly can be. Keep in mind that Samsung had been using AMOLED displays for its flagship and high-end devices for a long time now and since AMOLED panels too are a type of OLED panel, we are not entirely sure what the difference would be in terms of real life performance in that respect.


What really sounds interesting is that according to Park Won-sang, an engineer of Samsung Display, Samsung may remove most sensors and even the physical Home button completely from the front side of the S8. In his own words, "Samsung Display would roll out a full-screen display whose display area ratio (a scale that measures space taken up by a display on the front part of a handset) reaches more than 90 percent next year."


The senior engineer further added that the screen-to body ratio might go up to as high as 99%, which is even higher than the only edge-to-edge phone we have seen till date, the Xiaomi Mi Mix. A Samsung flagship smartphone that will sport a 4K edge-to-edge flexible OLED panel! We would say Samsung has got our attention.

There have been a lot of rumors going around recently about Samsung smartphones and the most recent one is about a device that is probably going to run on the Tizen OS. According to Zauba, 310 smartphone units codenamed SM-Z510FD, have recently been imported into India from Vietnam. The description "ASSY METAL REAR UNIT" probably means that the handset will sport a metal body, as per the recent trend followed by Samsung. This is most likely the upcoming Z5 that will presumably be the next phone to run on Tizen.


If what we are hearing about the handset is true, then the Z5 will be equipped with a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, along with 2GB of RAM to handle the 5.1" FHD display and multitasking. Internal storage will presumably be limited to only 8GB, but a micro-SD card slot will be included. The front and back cameras may sport 5-megapixel and 8-megapixel sensors respectively, while all of this is supposed to be powered by an impressive 3,000 mAh battery.


As the specs suggest, the Z5 is not a high-end smartphone and is not going to come to the US anytime soon. If we were to take a cue from Samsung's earlier release plan while launching the Z1 and Z3, then the Z5 will cater to India and surrounding South Asian countries only. As for the release date, they will possibly release the Z5 in the second half of 2016.

Before any confusion is created, let me clear things out by saying that we are talking about the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 here and not the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 or any other new Note device. "FE" will reportedly stand for "Fan Edition," according to rumors and leaks, but this is the same Galaxy Note 7 from 2016 which we fell in love with first, but learned to fear later on. Thankfully (and hopefully!) it will not only feature a completely different battery from the ones that started to catch fire, but will actually be a smaller 3,200mAh cell just to be extra safe.


Those of us that loved the smartphone and are enjoying the idea that it will be re-released with a 30% price-cut in certain regions, will feel safer knowing that the "new" Note 7 handsets might feature a "R" mark at the bottom right corner to indicate that it is indeed a refurbished device (meaning safe). None of this has yet been confirmed by Samsung as expected, but check out the photos and you will feel pretty convinced that the news reports are on point.


Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)



The Galaxy Note 7 Fan Editions are a huge success in South Korea as all retailers are reporting that they are being sold out like hotcakes over there (No puns intended)! Only 4000,000 units had been made available so far and as far as previous reports were concerned, that was going to be the extent of it. In a somewhat predictable turn of events, latest reports are suggesting that the Note 7 FE could also be making their way into other nations on account of the excellent response at home.


Whether you will be getting to buy one in the Unites States or not is uncertain at this point of time but latest reports are suggesting that Samsung may just launch the Note 7 FE in select markets across the world. While the roughly $605 price tag is somewhat steep for a smartphone that's rocking a chip from 2016 and has such an infamous history, people don't seem to be too concerned with that at this point of time! If it came to your country, would you be buying one or would you be saving up for the Galaxy Note 8?

Chrome OS Android OS

Android and Chrome OS SVP Hiroshi Lockheimer has said that Google is "very committed" to Chrome OS. The company had already confirmed earlier that the project isn't being killed.

 

Reports that Google is working on merging the Chrome OS and Android OS into a single operating system. The news was first reported by the Wall Street Journal but has since been confirmed by the search giant. The new OS, which is in the works for the past couple of years, is expected to be ready for a preview next year, but would be launched only in 2017.

 

The move would result in PC users getting access to Google Play, which is currently home to millions of apps. In addition, Chromebooks the lightweight and portable laptops that got their name from the Chrome OS will also get a new name. The Chrome browser, however, won't be affected in any way.

 

Chrome OS

 

It's worth mentioning that Google's newly-announced CEO Sundar Pichai has been heading both Android and Chrome OS divisions for the past two years. "Mobile as a computing paradigm is eventually going to blend with what we think of as desktop today," he said last week.

An officer in Mountain View, California noticed a prototype vehicle travelling in a 35 mph zone at a speed of 24 mph resulting in traffic congestion. "As he approached the vehicle he realized that it was Google's self-driving car" said a post by the police department. The officer also contacted the operator to learn about the steps followed by the vehicle for choosing speed depending on roadways and make the operator vigilant about impeding traffic.


Google's self-driving car project gave response on the official Google+ page and clarified that they have put a limit to the maximum speed (i.e. 25 mph) for safety reasons. The company said most of these stops occur owing to growing curiosity of people and their desire to get a closer look. They want people to perceive the car as friendly and approachable, rather than intimidating by making them zoom scarily through neighbourhood streets. Google also said that their vehicles have driven 1.2 million miles for testing without getting a ticket. Well, that's quite an achievement and also human equivalent of 90 years of driving experience.


There is a huge market for these cars. According to a study done by IHS Automotive in January, it is expected that close to 250,000 self-driven cars would be sold each year globally by 2025.

Staying true to the tradition of naming their Android iterations after desserts and sweets, Google has finally announced the official name of Android N as Nougat. In case you are curious, real life nougats are chewy Spanish sweets/ingredients made with whipped egg whites, roasted nuts, sugar, honey and candied fruit.


As has been the custom for Google, Android 7.0 Nougat has now received its official statue which depicts the Google Android standing over three nougat bars at its feet. The company expressed its appreciation for the public's response when they had put up an official site for anyone and everyone to suggest a name for the next Android OS. In the launch video, it was also mentioned that those suggestions played a major role in selecting the nougat as their preferred choice.


Android 7.0 Nougat should start to make its appearance by late 2016, especially on Nexus devices. This is a version of the OS that will be heavy on the visual animations and will offer a much better graphical support than Android Marshmallow, which will make way for superior looking games on your Android smartphones.

If the latest report by Bloomberg turns out to be true, then Qualcomm is probably devising a strategy to put an import ban on iPhones manufactured by Apple outside the country. The United States International Trade Commission will likely be appealed by the chip manufacturer to put the ban in effect against the Cupertino giant. Whether or not they will actually try to do that remains to be seen. Also, it would be interesting to see how the Trade Commission reacts to the appeal, if Qualcomm does indeed decide to go ahead with it.


Why they would take such a step you ask? The answer isn't "to benefit the US economy," that much I can assure you! It's just a possible strategic move by the microchip manufacturer to strengthen their position in the ongoing legal battle that's currently going on in-between the two companies. Qualcomm is losing out billions of dollars because Apple has stopped paying licensing fees to Qualcomm, after citing that Qualcomm is charging exorbitant and unfair amounts of money for legacy technology. It looks like Qualcomm is trying to put some pressure back on Apple.

We are all anticipating something brilliant from Apple this year as it will mark the iPhone's 10th anniversary. However, what we were not expecting was the fact that Apple might be unveiling the much awaited and mysterious smartphones on Monday, which is tomorrow! The prediction comes from J.P. Morgan of all sources, so this could indeed be legit. Now, it should be noted that what the analyst at the firm said was that Apple might be unveiling its latest and greatest smartphone at the WWDC next week. What this basically means is that the iPhone 8 could be revealed at any date in-between June 5th to June 9th, since the event is 5 day long.


Traditionally, the next iPhone should be launched in September and not in June but it is possible that Apple has sped up the entire process in light of the iPhone's anniversary. It should also be noted that delightful as these rumors/predictions are, chances of them being true are still slim. I guess we won't have to wait too long to find out any way as the event starts tomorrow.

In an official revelation via a blog post, Samsung has just disclosed the names of certain smartphones in its arsenal that the company is going to bless with the much-awaited Nougat update. Keep in mind that the names which you see on this list are only the ones that will be receiving the upgrade in the next few months (the first half of the year to be precise). What it means is that Samsung may and probably will update a few other models later in 2017 as well. If you want, feel free to check out the official blog post here; it also details the Nougat 7.0 update which Samsung has now started rolling out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.


• Galaxy S6

Samsung Turkey has just published some very good news for Samsung smartphone owners on its website. The post clears all confusion regarding which Samsung handsets and tablets are going to get updated to Nougat in 2017, once and for all. Additionally, it also clearly mentions planned dates on which the updates are supposed to go live for their respective smartphone/tablet models. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the Korean giant has included even the older and low-end smartphones like the Galaxy J5 and the Galaxy On7 from 2015 to this list.



The only thing to keep in mind is that this is a Nougat roadmap designed for Turkey and therefore, the dates will vary according to your country. Nevertheless, the list does give us at least a rough idea about when to expect it for our respective smartphones. Once the update gets rolled out, it's only a matter of time before it reaches all regions. As expected, the Galaxy S7 range is the top priority, with most of the handsets in the range already being updated to Nougat 7.0 as you read this. It will probably be the end of the year or even early next year before the J5 and the Galaxy J7 Prime gets upgraded, but at least you know that it's coming!
