Looking for a phone upgrade? Not satisfied with the mobile releases of 2016? Well, that's not a problem as 2017 will be promising in terms of new mobile releases! Only a few more days or months to wait, until the mobile beasts of 2017 are revealed. Let's see what 2017 has in reserve for us.
Once you go apple, you never go back! Apple will be back with the IPhone 8 in 2017, to celebrate its 10th anniversary impressively. Planned to be on the market in September 2017, IPhone 8 and IPhone 8 Plus, could be the most fundamental up to date phones. Apple will be making changes to the phones' designs and the software. In terms of design, the IPhone 8 is planned to be a single sheet of glass with an edge-to-edge OLED screen. Also, it would seem that at least one release of Apple's IPhones for 2017, will have a glass body. The Touch ID will be hidden within the glass, and the Home Button will be non-existent.
HTC lovers will not be disappointed as well! HTC is planning to release the HTC 11 in March/April 2017. An early leak confirmed that the mobile might have a Snapdragon 835 processor, RAM of 8 GB, a storage capacity of 256 GB and a 5.5in Quad- HD Screen. That is indeed lots of expectation... Let's hope that rumours have it right!
As for LG, it is rumoured that the G6 will be released in late 2017, and it could adopt a glass rear and front. The most interesting features it can have is an iris scanner that uses a similar sensor as the phone's front camera, which will be awesome.
Samsung will be back stronger in 2017, to mend its reputation after the Galaxy Note 7 crisis. The Samsung Galaxy s8 has been scheduled to be shown to the world in February 2017 during the MCW tradeshow. Rumours has it that the design will be changed, and the home button might be gone. It could as well be the fastest phone with a top of the range processor.
It looks like technology lovers will have a hard choice to make in 2017 while buying a mobile phone, with the possible new releases.

HDBlog has officially released a video which details a lot of the features that are going to be a part of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7's UI. There is also an accompanying article about it, if you wish to read. There will of course, be a lot of difference between what you see over here and what Samsung will finally be releasing on their next Note device when it comes out in August, but this leak gives us a nice little preview nonetheless.
From what we see and know so far, Samsung is planning for a clean and polished look this time around with the UI and it might be more straightforward in approach than what we are used to seeing from the OEM. There is also the possibility of a new messenger being included in the new software to rival the iMessage app on Apple products.
A piece of warning though, the video and the accompanying article are both in Italian, so there's that! If you have a rooted smartphone and would like to try out the core applications, you will find the link to download and install them below. They include S-Note, S-Browser, the default video player, the default keyboard, voice recorder, calculator, etc.

Both the Galaxy Books are powered by Windows 10 and come with keyboard docs for added productivity. The low-powered 10-inch version comes with a Full HD 10.6-inch LCD display, a 7th-generation Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB RAM, 5-mp front cam, 64GB/128GB storage and expandable MMC support.

In order to take advantage of the stylus, along with some added features, the two Windows tablet-laptop hybrids will come with quite a few pre-installed Samsung software suits.

As expected, the Galaxy Tab S2 is now receiving the Nougat update form Samsung in certain regions. The OTA update is hitting both the 9.7-inch version and the 8-inch version, but not in the same areas. According to reports, the 8-nch Galaxy Tab S2 with the model number SM-T715 is receiving Nougat in Italy, while in Germany, the 9.7 inch variant with model number SM-T810 is getting the same upgrade. However, it's only a matter of days before all devuces in the regions start receiving the upgrade to the latest and greatest Android OS.
The good news is that the 954.93MB file also contains the latest April security patch, making this a truly useful and complete update for the two tablets. Apart from the usual bells and whistles that are associated with each and every Nougat update, the Tab S2 will not feature a completely new user interface, that is better, faster and more secure, thanks to the April SMR. You may have to wait a while if you are not in any of these two countries, but now that it has staretd to roll out, you can rest assure that wait won't be too long. In the meanwhile, if you want to try out the Nougat update for the Galaxy Tab S2 before its official release in your region, head over to our firmware section.
