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.

CES 2015 Event is due to this week, Samsung has been working on its upcoming 2015 flagship device Galaxy S6 codenamed "Project Zero" for a while now, the Korean giant promised a completely new design with full metal unibody.
Latest Reports from Las Vegas (the place where CES will be held) suggests that Samsung will showcase the Galaxy S6 during its private event in the CES 2015. However, unfortunately, the devices will only be showcased to select partners, the report notes, which means that consumers will not be able to take a look at them. So, we may or may not get a sneak peak or a leaked photo, Stay Tuned!
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, an Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. In addition, the smartphone is also said to have a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front snapper.
LG G Flex 2 made an appearance before its scheduled announcement. A poster of the upcoming curved smartphone was caught on the CES 2015 show floor in Las Vegas.
As you can see above, LG G Flex 2 has retained the same design as its predecessor. However, we do expect that the device will bring significantly improved specs over last year's model. Earlier this week, Qualcomm teased the upcoming successor of LG G Flex. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone will boast high-end specs headed by the chipmaker's Snapdragon 800 family SoC.
LG will take the wraps off the G Flex 2 on Monday, January,5th during its official press conference. Stay tuned!
The CES 2015 is about to kickoff in Las Vegas, and leaks are already coming. The latest leak is giving us a look at what Sony is preparing for us on its conference. According to the leak is looks like Sony will be releasing New Walkman device, bringing its old line-up back to live.
The Japanese company didn't ditch its Xperia line-up. Sony is refining the formula behind the aforementioned model by introducing a curvy frame that, again, has all the controls on the side. If the seeming predecessor of this new audiophile gadget is any reference, we'd expect at least 128GB of storage, a 4-inch, 480 x 854 pixel resolution display, and over 32 hours of continuous playback of MP3-encoded audio at 128kbps.
HP went ballistic today at the CES 2015 with its monitor announcement, launching no less than seven of them at once. This includes some 4K monitors, some curved monitors, one 5K screen and there's even a 3D monitor.
The HP Z27q is the 27-inch 5K monitor with a 5120×2880 resolution, identical to the new iMac with Retina display. The monitor has two DisplayPort 1.2 inputs, four USB 3.0 outputs, tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment, and covers 99% of the Adobe RGB gamut. The Z27q will set you back by a reasonable $1,299 starting March.
Then there are the two 4K panels, the 27-inch Z27s and the 23.8-inch Z24s. Both have 3840×2160 resolution, 1.07 billion colors, and cover sRGB color gamut. Both have HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, Mini DisplayPort, four USB 3.0 ports, 1 audio out port, and tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment. The Z27s will be available in January for $749 and the Z24s in April for $549.
The three curved models include the 34-inch Envy 34c, the 27-inch Pavillion 27c and the 27-inch EliteDisplay S270c. The 34c has a super wide 21:9 aspect ratio VA panel with 3440×1440 resolution, dual HDMI (one with MHL), one DisplayPort 2.1, 8-bit color depth, 98.8% sRGB coverage, low reflective coating, and DTS Audio with 6W per channel speakers. It will be available in April for $999. The 27c has a 1080p VA panel, HDMI 1.4, MHL 2.0, and VGA port. There are also built-in DTS Audio and 4W per channel speaker system. It is available now for $399. The S270c is practically the same but has a bigger 27-inch display.
Sony's CES 2015 campaign goes under the "Welcome to the New World" motto and soon the cryptic teaser videos will be replaced with a live stream. The event will be held at the Sony booth in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center for who will attend in person and on a computer screen for those who can't.
The event starts later Today at 17:00 PST which is 01:00 AM GMT. You can Bookmark the link below to watch the livestream video once it starts.
CES is always a great event to welcome the New Year and year 2020 wasn't different. There wasn't many smartphones at the event, but a handful products surely made a splash due to being innovative and technologically advanced. Here are some of the top devices that deserve a mention.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 fold is a foldable version of the laptop. It is really cool to experience a laptop that looks like a tablet or monitor when laid out flat and becomes a regular laptop when half-open. The folded version is only 13-inch device that is small enough to carry inside a jacket. It has an ultra-think Bluetooth keyboard that slots in between the screen when folded eliminating the gap inside.
Insta360 One R
This is not just a regular wide-angle 4k action camera, but has modular structure that lets you switch out the lenses. It allows users to switch out not only the lenses, but the sensors as well. This is a huge breakthrough in cam industry. Rather than just popping a different lens on a stock body, each lens module comes with its own sensor, meaning you always have the right sensor for the lens you're using.
Samsung Galaxy Chromebook
The Chromebook surely steels the show at CES 2020. It is a powerful chromebook with a beautiful design and body. It includes a stylus, that uses a convertible design and the metal chassis is sleek and well-made. If you have been looking for a chrome book this year, you should pay attention to this one.
OnePlus Concept one
OnePlus appeared at CES event for the first time, and it truly made an entrance with the concept one. The device has a design nothing like before. The device is ostensibly a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition with a new exterior. The Concept One uses electro chromic glass over the cameras on the rear side which allows them to disappear when not needed. No one has used the elctrochromic glass on mobile devices before and certainly would be a game changer.
There were many TVs at CES but the Skyworth Q91 is one of the biggest and cheapest TV. A 75-inch 8K IPS LED TV from a storied television maker for under six thousand U.S. dollars is worth paying attention to. The Tv has integrated 8K AI image processing Engine, Dolby Atmos 2.1.2, a soundbar with Wonder Audio Sky Echo, a camera for web-conferencing, and SwAIoT for connecting all your smart home products to your TV, no matter if they're Skyworth products or powered by Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Back in March of 2014, HTC chose to unveil its most recent flagship, the One M8, in New York and London, at its own dedicated event. For whatever reason, the company obviously didn't feel like an announcement at CES (January) or MWC (March) was appropriate, and according to @upleaks, HTC may be planning a repeat of that arrangement with the oft-rumored Hima One M9.
If you're just catching up on Hima, here's what we know so far. The device will have a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution display, a quad-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM, a 2840 mAh battery, and surprise-surprise, a 20.7-megapixel camera.
That's right, it would appear that HTC may very well be ditching the UltraPixel tech that's been keeping its devices a step behind competitors, and that's definitely good news. The One M9 is expected to come in the typical HTC color palette: Gray, Silver, and Gold.
IFA 2015 was held in September this year and the next major event for world's mobile geeks will be the - CES 2016. It will happen in Las Vegas in January, 2016. Many mobile device manufacturers will be showcasing their devices in this expo.
In general Samsung unveils a lot of consumer electronic products during these kind of events, and it will follow the same route during CES 2016 too. The South Korean electronics behemoth has already started sending out invites for the expo. They will organise a press conference at CES 2016 on January 5, 2016 between 14:00 and 14:45 hours. That gives the tech giant good 45 minutes to showcase the products and it is rumoured that some of the devices will be from the Galaxy series.
Right now there is no information on what Samsung has planned to show during the keynote. Although it is highly unlikely that they will unveil S7 in the event, some are speculating the same. The reason behind this is that Samsung usually reveals the S series during this time period. The company might showcase the Galaxy A9, which is supposed to be powered by the Snapdragon 620 chipset, along with some other audio and video devices.
Samsung recently released the details of their CES 2016. Keynote would be held on the 7th of January and the press conference is scheduled for January 5th.
There have been speculations that Samsung may announce their new Galaxy S7 smartphone in January. But contrary to all the speculations there won't be any S7 show-case in CES.
The Korean tech giant will once again start its CES with a press conference, revealing its latest offerings in TV, home appliances and smartphones on January 5.
For all the latest updates, media resources and content related to Samsung at CES 2016, you will soon be able to check out Newsroom's special page. Samsung's CES-related information can also be accessed on social media by using the hashtag #SAMSUNGxCES2016.
Samsung has already attained a significant level of optimization with the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, and it would be interesting to see TouchWiz become even more efficient in the coming future (Samsung might also have plans to fix the prolonged multitasking issues present in the high end devices). The report also says that the microSD slot will come back with the Galaxy S7, but right now all we can do is wait for the device.
Today, Samsung officially unveil its schedule for CES 2015. The huge trade show is fast approaching, as we're now exactly one month away from its debut.
January,5th is when Samsung will hold a press conference at CES, starting at 2 pm Las Vegas Time. This will be followed by a keynote address by BK Yoon, Samsung Electronics CEO and President, at 6:30 pm.
On the same day also, Sony will hold its CES presentation, though that will start at 5 pm. So this is shaping up to be a pretty crowded day, as the day before the trade show's doors open has always been.
In spite of previous reports suggesting that Samsung might primarily concentrate on launching its new range of ultra-premium QLED TVs at CES 2018, new reports are suggesting that Samsung will not go to the CES 2018 empty handed in the smartphone department. If you were hoping to see the Galaxy S9-series being launched at the show, you will likely have to wait till the Mobile World Congress 2018 in February, but we may still get a teaser trailer. What may very well happen however is that Samsung might launch the much awaited and rumored Galaxy A8 and A8+ at the Consumer Electronics Show.
Additionally the Galaxy J2 (2018) may or may not make an appearance, but we are pretty much sure that the Notebook 9 (2018) series with its S-Pen compatibility will definitely be showcased. This new Notebook 9 (2018) series of laptops with 8th Gen Intel processors, 16GB RAM and 1TB HDD was just launched and is Samsung's most powerful laptop till date.

If the term "shapeshifting" got you intrigued, then you are not the only one because it is the first time we have heard this term being used to describe a television set as well! Apparently, the 75-inch TV which Samsung just unveiled at the CES in Las Vegas has a micro-LED panel and that's why it is called a "shapeshifting TV." According to what little was made available for the public ear, the micro-LED technology will allow the television set to change in-between a square display format, to a widescreen video strip, according to the need of the hour. President of Samsung Display, Jonghee Han stated, "This screen is customizable and can be placed anywhere in the home."
While we would have loved to have given you more detailed information regarding what it actually means and how well Samsung has implemented the technology, this is all we have for now. But stay tuned to YouMobile for more interesting updates as the CES 2019 progresses further.
The upcoming Huawei P9 is one of the most anticipated Android phones and rumors indicate that Huawei might release it this very week at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas. Pan Jiutang is the popular Chinese analyst who fuelled our imaginations even further by stating that the P9 may sport 6GB of RAM. We have seen the likes of the Galaxy Note 5 and the ASUS Zenfone 2 in 2015 who came in the industry with 4GB of RAM first, and may be the P9 will be the first smartphone to sport 6GB RAM. If we are lucky, we will find out for sure in just a few days.
In October, 2015, we came to know about a label that was made for the Huawei P9 and it indicated the possibility of dual camera sensors on the back of the phone. Jiutang builds on that piece of info and concludes that the phone will actually sport two 13 megapixel back cameras. He further hints that a complex algorithm will support the dual lenses in capturing and rendering images of supreme quality.
Other speculations about the P9 revolves around a 1080p Full HD 5.2 inch display and Huawei's own extremely powerful HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor coupled with the next-gen Mali T880 MP4 GPU. If all of the speculations made by Pan Jiutang turn out to be true, then the Huawei P9 will certainly take its place among the world's most powerful smartphones.
After being announced in China over a month ago, Huawei plans to go global with their new flagship as stated by the company itself at the CES during their press conference. There is bad news for Huawei fans in the US though, as the mate 8 won't be released in the States anytime soon. That being said, it could definitely get a launch after a few weeks but just not right away.
The Mate 8 is powered by its Huawei's own HiSilicon Kirin 950 chipset, which is allegedly the most powerful mobile SoC in existence today. Huawei claims that the new 950 offers significant performance upgrades over its predecessor, the Kirin 925, while at the same time being 70% more power efficient. The HiSilicon chipset has the highest score ever recorded on AnTuTu, beating even the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Note 5 and the iPhone 6s. The real world usage and feel may however largely depend on how it incorporates its EMUI 4.0 over Android Marshmallow.
Other notable specs of the Huawei Mate 8 include a beautiful but unwieldy 6-inch Full HD IPS panel, a 16 megapixel CMOS Sony sensor (IMX298 BSI) with f/2.0 aperture, a 8 megapixel selfie cam with f/2.4 aperture, 3/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage and a massive 4000 mAh battery with quick charging capabilities to power it all. Regarding the price, it will go on sale at €599 without taxes for the 32GB ROM/3GB RAM version and €699 without taxes for the 64GB ROM/4GB RAM edition.

Smack dab in the middle of the venue, Google has already booked a huge booth for the show. While a lot of experts are of the opinion that the Pixel 2, Pixel XL, Daydream View, Google Home and the Google Home Mini will be on display here, there's a chance that the search engine giant may also showcase the newly launched PixelBook. It's basically going to be a place to show off "Made by Google" hardware.
Aside from a 150-inch Home LED Display, a new series of MicroLED TVs and an updated range of QLED TVs, the Korean tech giant is also expected to launch a teaser trailer of the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Other rumors regarding the company's possible showcases include a few new smartwatches and a foldable smartphone, aka the Galaxy X.
LG (January 8 at 08:00 PT/16:00 GMT)
To keep Samsung on its toes, LG will likely drawing the curtains off its new range of 4K OLED TVs, which will most probably be the B8, C8, G8 and the W8. A new range of mid-range smartphones will also make their appearances at the show, but we are not sure about the LG G7 yet.

The LG Signature Series OLED TV R (65R9) has a rolling OLED panel that rolls out from within the storage base below (which is also a sound system)! Looking at the whole thing unfurl is nothing short of astounding and strange at the same time.
The Happiness Robot
While it may not be human, the Lovot from Groove X promises to be your best friend forever! If you don't find the idea of a penguin-ish robot following you around for cuddles and then sleeping in your arms to be both weird and comforting, this list has nothing on you!
The Talking Toilet

Well, the Kohler Numi 2.0 would want you to change your opinion because it's a talking, smart toilet that no one was really waiting for.
