It would not be the first time that a Chinese OEM has beaten the likes of Samsung and LG in being the first smartphone to sport the most powerful flagship chip from Qualcomm for the year. LeEco had done it before and it looks like Xiaomi could be doing the same in 2018. According to a latest rumor on Weibo, the Mi 7 will be released in January and probably before the S9 or the LG G7. Now, one needs to keep in mind that a separate rumor has predicted that both the flagships form LG and Samsung will also be making appearances in January-February. Yes, things are getting very confusing right now, but what can be said for certain is the fact that all the three handsets will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (unannounced) SoC.
According to the rumor, the Xiaomi Mi 7 could also be sporting a 6-inch OLED panel and 6GB/8GB of RAM. Since traditionally, Mi flagship range phones have all been rather small, we would have to guess that either the rumor is misinformed or Xiaomi is going for a borderless display, just like the S8 or Xiaomi's own Mi Mix 2!

The second generation Mi Mix is finally here as it was launched a few hours earlier by Xiaomi during an exclusive press conference at home. Now that we know everything that there is to know about the handset, we can assure you that there are quite a few good things about it, as well as a few confusing decisions that we are not exactly a fan of.
· Full-screen, near-borderless 5.99-inch display
· Latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with 6GB of RAM
· Affordable pricing; $506/RMB 3299 for 6 GB + 64 GB, $552/3599 for 6 GB + 128 GB and $614/RMB 3999 for 6 GB + 256 GB
· Curved on all four sides
· Global antennae band support
· Larger availability
· Easier to handle
· Has dedicated earphone for clear phone calls, unlike its predecessor
· It looks gorgeous
· The display is not OLED
· The resolution is still not QHD but just FHD+ or 2160 x 1080 resolution (18:9 aspect ratio)
· Doesn't have the dual camera sported by the Xiaomi Mi 6
· No headphone jack
There is nothing ugly about the Mi Mix 2 fortunately and if you can live without some of the somewhat controversial decisions, the Mi Mix could be that unique flagship phone you always wanted! If you are willing to shell out as much as $720 though, a rarer all-ceramic version of the smartphone with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage will also be available for grabs soon.

Xiaomi isn't a big brand when it comes to smartphone market, but its progressing with leaps and bounds. The Xiaomi Mi9 was the first device with the snadpdragon 855 chipset in that price range, and now we are looking forward to world's first 64MP camera. This was discovered by the XDA developers after they saw a line of code in the camera app of the developer kit for the upcoming MIUI 10 which is the Xiamoi's user interface laying over the top of the android. The code has multiple lines that highlight the 64MP camera capability and it looks like the lines are for a watermark being placed over pictures taken by a phone.
Samsung also announced a 64MP sensor for smartphones which tops the 48MP seen on recent current devices including the Xiaomi Mi9. According to the reports, it is still in the development phase, and it will take some time. The company is right now in the process to launch the latest Redmi K20 series. It also rebranded K20 smartphone series in some countries under the Mi name. Other than the camera specs, there isn't much in the rumors. The in-system camera app has also been upgraded to the latest MIUI 10.
With 64MP the Xiaomi camera could take amazing pictures just like high-definition images. So far Google's Pixel has the best result when it comes to taking pictures in low-light. We have to see how Xiamoi improve its software to take great images and compete the global smartphone manufacturers. The 64MP camera sensor supports real-time HDR up to 100-decibel and a dual conversion gain. This will also help the smartphone to create rich hues. The color accuracy will be far better and noise will be minimized. We don't have any words from Xiamoi's about the rumors or its price but it surely going to add some extra price to the cost.
The ASUS ZenFone AR has been confirmed at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas and it's a beast in every sense of the term. The ZenFone AR is made with virtual reality and augmented reality in mind; therefore it has built-in support for Google Tango & DayDream as expected. Apart from the insane 8 gigs of RAM, the smartphone is powered by multiple other absolute premium-end hardware specs as well.
A customized Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC with vapour cooling system for AR and VR functionalities
5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD (1440x2560 pixels) edge-to-edge display with a screen to body ratio of 79%
23-megapixel Sony IMX318 camera with TriTech+ autofocus system, dual-PDAF, second-gen Laser Focus, 4-axis OIS, 3-axis EIS, continuous-focus and 4K video recording
8-megapixel front shooter with f/2.0 aperture and an 85-degree wide angle lens
128GB/256GB of internal storage with hybrid nano SIM/micro-SD card slot
USB Type-C, Bluetooth v4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac
Exclusive Asus ZenUI VR 360 degree app support on PhotoCollage, Gallery, and ZenCircle applications
Everything about the Asus ZenFone AR is premium and up to date, except may be the SD 821 chipset. Make no mistake, it is still the most powerful Qualcomm chip till date, but given that the Snapdragon 835 has already been announced and it will be better than the SD 821 in both power-efficiency and performance, Asus may have missed a trick there.

In a market that's filled with smartphones and tablets which sport 2GB of RAM and where 4GB is still the choice for plenty of flagship devices, LeEco is probably developing a smartphone that will sport 8GB of RAM! Considering the fact that we have only just started to see 6GB RAM in a smartphone, this is surprising news indeed.
According to the rumor, the upcoming flagship smartphone from LeEco will not only have 8GB of RAM, but it will also sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 CPU that's significantly more powerful than even the mighty SD 820. If the rumor is true, then the phone will possibly be almost as powerful as a mid-range laptop running on Windows. There should be a 25-megapixel rear camera accompanying all that processing power as well. The report suggests that it should be available for purchase at a price of around CNY 3,000/€405/$455, which is certainly not that much, considering the hardware!
This news, if proven true, will definitely raise the question, how much is too much? Nonetheless, with the advent of Android N, which will support significantly better graphics than Marshmallow, the OS might actually be able to make use of all that memory. As the RAM within an Android device is shared in-between the processor and the graphics card, the memory is undeniably responsible for the device's graphical performance.

While Samsung had hoped to bring the world's first under-the-glass fingerprint scanner with the Galaxy S8, that plan didn't work out as the technology just wasn't ready in time. As a result, the Galaxy S8 ended up with the world's weirdest fingerprint scanner ever! Nevertheless, Samsung tried to incorporate it once again with the upcoming Note 8 and this time by working with a different company. However, reports are indicating that it didn't work out either and the Note 8 will sport a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, but in the middle thankfully! As it turns out, Apple themselves were not finding it easy to incorporate the next-gen fingerprint scanners either and rumor has it that there's no guarantee as to how the iPhone 8 OLED will be sporting its fingerprint scanner when it comes out later in the year.
Strangely enough, it's the Chinese manufacturer Vivo who is reportedly ahead of both the big guns and has already implemented the technology in one of their upcoming smartphones, which they are going to unveil in this very month (June 28) at the MWC Shanghai. I am really looking forward to this one, what about you?

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy X is the supposed foldable smartphone that never arrived even after years of speculations and predictions. However, the era of foldable smartphones is finally here, thanks to ZTE's brand new experimental smartphone, the Axon M.
The Axon M sports two 5.2-inch displays of identical properties, which can be folded in the middle to make for a more portable package. The phone still feels quite bulky due to the thickness, but it's the world's first phone which makes carrying around a potentially 10.4-inch display in your pocket, a feasible option.
Apart from the dual 1080p 5.2-inch LCD FHQ displays, it also sports a 2.15 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a single 20-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and dual image stabilization and 64GB of internal storage with micro-SD card slot. In the US, the ZTE Axon M will be available exclusively on AT&T for roughly $699. Check out the video by The Verge to see the ZTE Axon M in action.

Rumors and reports have only begun to surface that Samsung could be unveiling the technology behind their first foldable smartphone next week, but a much smaller firm has beaten Samsung to it by revealing what is being touted as the "first foldable phone" by them. In all honesty, it looks like a foldable prototype than a marketable device!
The FlexiPai by Rouyu Technology is rumored to be released very soon but if it is going to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/8150 SoC like Ice Universe tweeted, then that's not going to happen. Also, we kind of hope that Rouyu Technology waits a little longer before actually releasing the device because as of now, it really looks unfinished! Nevertheless, this is definitely a rough look into the future that's waiting for smartphone evolution in general. Check out the key specs below.
· 7.8" truly flexible display with just 7.6mm thickness
· Qualcomm Snapdragon 855/8150 SoC
· 6GB RAM + 128GB storage/8GB RAM + 256GB storage/8GB RAM + 512GB storage
· 16MP wide-angle + 20MP telephoto pairing
· Starting price will exceed $1,290 and will go up as high as $1,860+
It's been only a few weeks since the Realme 6 series has launched, and now the company has released another Realme 6 series device. It's Realme 6i that was previously spotted in an FCC filing. It features MediaTek's Helio G80, with a quad-camera setup and a massive 5,000mAh battery. The design of Realme 6i hasn't changed much from its predecessor Realme 5i. The device has 6.5-inch HD+ with waterdrop notch, 89.9% screen-to-body ratio.
It comes with two variants in terms of storage. The phone has 3GB RAM/64GB storage and another variant has 4GB RAM /128GB storage. The phone comes with 18W fast charging and reverse wired charging. For security, it uses a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The rear camera system comes in 48MP primary sensor lens, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera uses a 16MP lens. The device hasn't made any significant improvements to its hardware or display. It comes with Realme UI based interface with Android 10 out of the box.
Other key upgrades over its predecessor include a USB Type-C port for charging, data syncing, and Android 10. The device will have a 3.5mm headphone jack and a dedicated microSD card slot for expansion. Realme has introduced a new range of colors - white milk and green tea with a reflective vertical pattern. The devices are available at $180 for 3GB version and $215 for the 4GB version. Pre-orders for the devices are scheduled to start in Myanmar and the device will be available from March 29. As of now, the company hasn't announced any date for launch in India, but we expect the company to announce the launch in the coming weeks.
There were already some leaks about the next S-series phone from Vivo which was expected to be called Vivo S5. Today, the Chinese company has officially teased the arrival of Vivo S5 by releasing a teaser video and a poster. Based on the recent leaks and teaser it is safe to say that it could be the first phone to feature a diamond-shaped quad-camera system. The teasers reveal that like the Vivo S1 and Vivo S1 Pro smartphones, the upcoming Vivo S5 will be arriving in vibrant colors. This could mean that the phone manufacturer is targeting the younger consumer in China for Vivo S5.
Not so long, Vivo S-lineup brand ambassador Cai Xukun was spotted holding the upcoming S-series smartphone in a promo video for a fashion magazine. The rear side of the phone has pinkish appearance towards the left and right while the center portion looks bluish. The video revealed that the Vivo S5 has a 3.5mm audio jack on its top edge and it has a diamond-shaped quad-camera setup on its back. It appears that the phone is equipped with an in-screen fingerprint reader.
At present, there is no information on the specifications of the Vivo S5 smartphone. It could be packed with mid-range phones. Probably, the company will be unleashing the Vivo S5 in November. Hopefully, its entire specifications will be revealed through its TENAA certification in the coming days. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the Exynos 980 chipset. The said SoC is equipped with a 5G modem that will bring about NSA and SA networks. The launch event for the phone could be held on Nov. 7 in China.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has not hit the European smartphone markets for the first time. They are targeting consumers in the premium and budget-category of the smartphone industry there. The company is one of a few Chinese manufacturers who went international after achieving the considerable success in their homeland over the past decade. China is a huge market due to its population and is considered the second biggest hub of the smartphone manufacturers. Vivo isn't the biggest in China yet but doing good in its own capacity.
The only chinese company that has made it to European countries so far is Huawei, but now Vivo hopes to make its debut with fully-featured and affordable handsets. Denny Deng, the head of Vivo's European business said, "We are truly excited to showcase our first ever line-up of smartphones for the European market. To ensure we had a clear understanding of the market, we spoke to 9000 consumers across Europe, to understand how these devices are integrated into their daily life.
The company has launched Vivo X51 5G as the first flagship smartphone for the consumers who prefer to buy a high-end handset. The phone comes with full support to next generation networks without an additional cost. The main selling points are imaging capabilities, supported by a Gimbal camera system that compensates for natural shaking and distorted movies or images. Meanwhile the Y20, Y70, and Y11 are mid-range devices that aim to deliver as much capability as possible for the price. Vivo has also planned to offer Android and ditch the highly customized user interface to attract western consumers. The smartphone will support Google Assistant rather than Vivo's own alternative.
Vivo has apparently done what Samsung could not and Apple was only planning to. The famous in-screen fingerprint scanner which has so far eluded all devices till date, has been brought forth and showcased on a Vivo smartphone.
The Qualcomm fingerprint scanner which was put into effect at the show on a Vivo Xplay 6 prototype was announced earlier at the same show. It detects ultrasonic fingerprint signals through OLED displays up to 1200um and is more secure than any other fingerprint scanners that are available on smartphones at the moment. Check out the GIF image which we can now look at, thanks to Engadget.
The fingerprint scanner works underwater and doesn't care much even when your phone or your fingers are dirty. There are two points to be noted though. Engadget reports that the actual fingerprint recognition is much slower than what we are used to and also that the display was only able to detect the fingerprint from one particular place on the display. In theory however, the whole display should be able to detect your fingerprints flawlessly. Then again, this is just a prototype that we are looking at and things will definitely improve once the ultrasonic technology and the smartphone is ready for commercial release.

First Leaked Photos that shows off Samsung's upcoming flagship Smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S Edge. The images, provided by sources at a South Korean electronics distributor, purportedly show five variants of the electronics giant's new flagship smartphone, including an Edge-style version.
While the Galaxy S6 isn't expected to be formally announced until the Samsung Unpacked 2015 event held on March 1st, the rumour mill has been running overtime on what the world's largest smartphone maker might be offering in the new handset to revive its sluggish mobile-phone business.
The fifth phone shows that the bezel which looks metallic and quite thick of the visible edged side, unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, is protruding outwards. This seems to indicate that the fork-looking silver line shown in Samsung's recently sent invitation was the hint for the particular wraparound design of the Edge.
The physical home button is still very much alive, it seems, while the glimpse of the fifth phone shows that the front of the S6 will resemble its predecessors the S5, S4, and S3.
On Match,1st Samsung will be officially revealing it's new flagships (Galaxy S6 - Galaxy S6 Edge) at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona. Today, T-Mobile US sign-up page just revealed a photo (above) of the Galaxy S6 Edge with a curved side display with a title "It's almost Here".
The clearly visible metal body and curved display suggest that we are looking at the Edge variant of the Korean giant's next flagship. A number of leaks have already suggested that Samsung will reveal two versions of the Galaxy S6.
Stay Tuned on YouMobile and to find out everything about these upcoming smartphones.
Today, the first Press Photo (above) of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has been leaked on twitter, The Photo showcase the device in a light and dark camouflage color schemes, which are likely designed to further enhance its already rugged appearance with AT&T logo on the back.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, model number SM-G890A, is said to pack a generous 3,500mAh battery. The latter is significantly larger than the 2,600mAh unit of the Originial Galaxy S6 SM-G920.
Battery capacity aside, we can reasonably expect that Samsung Galaxy S6 Active will keep the same top notch specs as the Galaxy S6. They include 14nm Exynos 7420 SoC, 5.1" QHD Super AMOLED display, 16MP main camera, and 5MP front-facing unit.
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!
Today at CES 2015, NVIDIA has announced a brand new mobile processor for 2015 "Tegra X1". The X1 is the first mobile processor in the world capable of 1 Teraflop floating point performance, which almost puts it in the same league as desktop class GPU and current generation gaming consoles. The X1 has a new octa-core CPU cluster.
On the GPU side, NVIDIA has turned to using its latest generation Maxwell architecture, which we saw on their flagship desktop GPU this year, the GTX 980. Although not quite in the same league performance-wise, the 256 CUDA core GPU in the X1 is twice as powerful as the Kepler-based GPU on the K1. It's also capable of 1 teraflop of floating point performance. To put that into perspective, the Xbox One is capable of 1.3 teraflop while the PS4 can do 1.84 teraflop.
The X1 has a 64-bit wide LPDDR4 memory capable of peak memory bandwidth of 25.6GB/s. It is also capable of outputting 3840x2160, that's 4K @ 60fps, to an internal or external display with support for HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. X1 also has improved codec supports and can decode VP9, VP8, H.264, H.265 (10-bit) at 2160p60, along with 600 MP/s (megapixels per second) JPEG encode and decode.
Tegra X1 also supports all major graphics standards, including Unreal Engine 4, DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, CUDA, OpenGL ES 3.1 and the Android Extension Pack. Mobile devices running Tegra X1 are expected in the first half of 2015 with automobiles leveraging the DRIVE PX and CX in the second half of 2015.
A Fun fact: "Ted" grossed $549 million worldwide after its release in 2012. So here's the sequel, which reunites Mark Wahlberg with Seth MacFarlane's teddy bear. Amanda Seyfried, John Slattery and Morgan Freeman join that duo for "Ted 2" which focuses on Ted's attempts to prove that he's got a soul. "Ted 2" will be out this Summer on June,26th. First Official Trailer has been released today.

The First Trailer of the popular Tom Cruise series Mission Impossible 5 has been released, it will be titled as "Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation". The Trailer shows Tom Cruise performing the high-flying stunts viewers have come to expect in the spy franchise.
The movie plot is as following: "Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF."
The movie will hit theaters in IMAX on July,31 this year.
Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Academy Award-winning film Birdman is a dark comedy set almost entirely in one theater and shot to look like a single take. Iñárritu's follow-up film is pretty much the polar opposite of that, although it's Oscar ambition seems equally apparent.
The Revenant, "inspired by true events," stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Hugh Glass, a 19th century frontiersman who was mauled by a bear and left for dead by his expedition group (which includes Tom Hardy). The trailer is heavy on tension, ambience, beards, drums, and heavy breathing.
Samsung Mobile announced that it began the mass production of its latest 20nm 4GB LPDDR4 Mobile DRAM memory chips. Using the 20nm manufacturing process, these LPDDR4 chips will be reportedly 50% faster than the fastest LPDDR3 memory on the market, while also consuming 40% less power (1.1 volts).
The 4GB RAM chips will be ready to debut in Smartphones and Tablets by Late 2015. The chances of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 rocking 4GB of RAM is quite high.
The I/O data rate is up to 3,200 megabits per second, a whopping two times faster than the DDR3 DRAM used in PCs. As a result, the the new LPDDR4 RAM can support UHD video recording and playback and continuous shooting of high-resolution images with over 20 megapixels.
Samsung will be unveiling two new devices next month, Galaxy Note 5 Phablet and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, we have some details about the specs of both devices. Today, we got the first Live Photos of the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ that was surfaced on the web.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+
The device is an advanced edition of the original Galaxy S6 Edge variant. The S6 Edge+ had model number (SM-G928A) with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Pre-installed along with a 3,000 mAh battery. Here's the latest live photos of the device.

Here's the first Official Hands-on and Unboxing video of the New two flagships has just been published on YouTube, the video shows the new boxes and some of the key features of the devices, watch it below!
Samsung revealed the Galaxy Note5 last week on the Unpacked 2015 event. The flagship phablet doesn't pack a curved display, but it packs a curved back glass.
The first Note5 drop Test YouTube video for the, shows us just how fragile the curved glass design on the Note5 actually is. A drop from around 1 meter, which is usual waist height, instantly cracked the unit's back, resulting in an extensive and nasty spider web crack.
Interestingly enough, the top most layer of the back remained smooth and intact with the damage contained underneath. So, at least, there is no danger of cuts. Watch the video below!
HTC has just launched its first Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered smartphone, One A9, which also packs an updated version of HTC Sense 7.0 UI. The new User Interface packs some minor improvements on top of Marshmallow.
The Improvements can be visible on the System app's icons, Setting menu, Notification bar, HTC Sense Keyboard, App drawer and the blinkfeed too. Everything is more flat than the previous Sense 7.0 release (for Lollipop).
All the icons used are now packing a long-shadow style. The camera Interface has also been updated with flat simple icons. System-wide the new UI is taking advantage of all Marshmallow features and tries to follow Google's Material Design as much as possible but still keeping the good old Sense smooth feeling which makes it the perfect combination and the best custom launcher in the market. Check the video below to see the HTC One A9 with Marshmallow 6.0 Sense 7.0 UI in action.
HTC has officially announced the list of devices that will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The list included the company's latest flagship device One M9 and his older brother One M8 too along with some other devices.

HTC One A9 is latest smartphone from HTC and the first non-Nexus device to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The handset is supposed to freshen up the HTC portfolio and give another chance of the otherwise struggling One lineup.
The HTC One A9 is built around a 5" AMOLED screen of 1080p resolution and is the first to run on the Snapdragon 617 chip. The SoC employs an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz and another four A53 ticking at 1.2GHz, Adreno 405 GPU and 2 or 3 GB of RAM depending on the version.
HTC says it designed the One A9 from scratch, blending signature elements of its previous phones, such as the antenna stripes on the back. The A9's unibody is made entirely of metal, with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 protective glass shielding the entire front.
HTC One A9 Specifications
HTC One A9 is quite thin at just 7.2mm of thickness and it seems like a pocket-friendly chap with the 5" screen and the 143g of weight.
The main camera of the One A9 packs 13MP sensor with optical image stabilization and 1080p video recording (the Snapdragon 617 doesn't support 4K). It supports RAW capturing and Hyperlapse (stabilized time-lapse) videos. The front snapper has a 4MP UltraPixel sensor and a bright F/2.0 aperture.
HTC One A9 comes with either 16 or 32GB of storage, expandable via a microSD slot. LTE connectivity is naturally supported, while a new high-power DAC that promises unmatched audio experience.
The Home key of the HTC One A9 doubles as an always-on fingerprint scanner, which will unlock your device even while the display is turned off. You can also use the sensor for Play Store payments thanks to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow running on the A9 right out of the box.
HTC One A9 is powered by a 2150 mAh battery, which supports Quick Charge 2.0 (and 3.0), though you'll have to buy a proper 15W HTC charger if you want to charge your battery lightning fast.
HTC One A9 will be available worldwide in a price of 600 EURO (about $580) by Early November,2015.
HTC seems to be preparing a Windows Phone 8.1 Edition of the HTC One M8. Verizon posted a high-quality render images on its official website of the phone
These image confirms the existence of an UltraPixel Duo rear camera with dual LED flash, so the Windows Phone 8.1 variant of the One M8 certainly seems to be identical to the Android model just as previously reported. The upcoming handset should offer a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, BoomSound speakers, a 5 MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage space. Like the Android-based One M8, the Windows version is made out of metal, and supports HTC's Dot View case.
We're expecting HTC to announce the One M8 for Windows next week, on August,19th. The handset could be available to buy via Verizon as soon as August 21st, for an unknown price.
HTC's upcoming Nexus 9 tablet for Google has leaked again in pictures. This time courtesy @upleaks, the latest image shows the back of the tablet.
Contrary to some of the rumors, the T1 does not have a metal body but instead the same matte black plastic back with a circular raised camera lens in the top left corner, which looks very similar to the design of the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 5. Even the big Nexus logo is similarly placed sideways in the middle.
We can't wait to see what HTC will do with the Lollipop Material Design UI. We've just received a TIP from one of our readers with a screenshot alleged to be from an Android 5.0 Lollipop (preview) build with HTC Sense 7 UI. The screenshot appears to be taken from an HTC One M8.
The screenshot is from the system settings Battery Usage. As you can see HTC Sense 7 UI has a full accent color that covers the upper Notification bar (Dark Green) along with the same color as a background of the software Keys. In Sense 6, the software Keys was always black. HTC Lollipop update schudle already Here.
UPDATE!: More Sense 7 Screenshots is Here
Thanks for the Tip Anon!
It's Here, the first leaked photos of the HTC One M9 (codenamed Hima). Visually very similar to the predecessor, the device is only distinguishable by a different main camera on the back.
The square cutout is to house the new 20.7MP sensor which is set to replace HTC's rather unsuccessful attempts at camera innovation. The UltraPixel concept gathered a lot of criticizm for its uninspiring good light performance and lack of 4K video recording and was replaced in the company's upper-midrange, with the flagship to follow.
The HTC One M9 (Hima) is reported to keep the predecessor's screen size and resolution at 5 inches and 1920x1080 pixels, contrary to most of this year's flagships, which are keen to jump on the QHD bandwagon. The Snapdragon 810 will power the device, coupled with 3GB of RAM.
Note: The source have removed the Photos as a request from HTC, which adds some authenticity to these photos.

Things are really not looking good for Samsung at all as a brand new serious issue has just surfaced in the form of a lawsuit for something that was previously unknown and unheard of. Daniel Ramirez is a construction worker who has filed a lawsuit against the South Korean electronics giant for allegedly selling defective and explosive Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones. He stated that the incident occurred in Ohio, where he was working in a bookstore and the S7 Edge was in his pant pocket. The phone wasn't being charged or even used while it caught fire and caused Daniel to receive second and third degree burns. He tried to grab the smoking smartphone and throw it out of his pocket, which burned his right hand as well. This was followed by the S7 Edge proceeding to literally explode in his pocket causing horrible injuries.
Now, this is an incident that reportedly occurred on May 30, which is more than three months before the Note 7 was even officially revealed. In light of the recently occuring battery related fires originating from the Note 7 and its worldwide recall by the manufacturer, ClassAction.com has taken it upon themselves to sue the OEM over this tragic incident. They want a worldwide recall for the S7 Edge, just like Samsung did with the Note 7. Not only is this the first time that we are hearing about the S7 Edge catching fire and exploding, but this is also the only time that such an unfortunate accident seems to have happened while the phone was not even being charged. We will have to wait and see what Samsung has to say about this.

TV Plus, the world's first virtual TV channel was launched by Samsung Electronics in its homeland South Korea. Just in a month after its launch, the TV channel has become quite a sensation in the domestic market. This service is meant for Korean consumers who will be using an application on smart television to Video on Demand (VOD) for the first time. They will be able to browse through videos just like flipping channels in regular TV.
According to data released by Samsung on 11th November, 20% of the Samsung smart TV users have the TV plus service from the date of its launch in October. Most promising part is that the reuse rate exceeds 80%. This service enables users to browse through 33 virtual channels via a remote control without downloading any external application or going through any kind of sign up process.
The TV users can connect their smart TV via Wifi or network cable to access the service. Once connected they will be able to watch wide range of content ranging from entertainment, education to drama at no cost at all.
In the recent times Samsung has shown interest in adding various multimedia content like Galaxy view, Gear VR and gaming services to its digital services.
After looking at a number of leaked photos and renders, we now know for sure (more or less anyway!) that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will sport a USB Type-C cable and it will be the first Samsung device to do so. Thanks to Tinh tế, we now have a video that possibly is showing us the USB Type-C cable which will accompany the Note 7.
The model number of the cable as seen in the video is EP-DN930CWE. As we are almost certain that the Note 7 will be codenamed SM-N930, this further reinforces the theory. Besides, anyone who is familiar with how Samsung packages its accessories will find the packaging of the USB Type-C cable to be very familiar. Take a look yourself and you will see what we mean.
The most popular rumor related to Samsung's decision of switching over to USB Type-C from the regular micro-USB is of course the upcoming second gen Gear VR. Samsung will probably launch the next Gear VR with an USB Type-C port in close proximity to the Galaxy Note 7's unveiling. We will found out more as we approach the month of August.

Now that the time for rumors is over, it's time to take our first official look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Let us tell you first up that the rumors and leaks were not exactly spot on as two major predictions were proven wrong post the unveiling. Firstly, the Galaxy Note 7 does not feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821/Exynos 8893 SoC, but sports the same Snapdragon 820 SoC/Exynos 8890 SoC as the S7 series. Secondly, it has only 4GB of RAM and there is no 6GB variant at the moment. We were disappointed and surprised to see this as almost every major leak suggested the two missing hardware specs would be there in the final version.
Most of the other predictions did turn out to be true though, as the unique iris scanner is present and works in sync with Samsung Pay and KNOX to add an extra layer of security to everything. It's really fast, although you may have to hold the phone uncomfortably close to your face while using it. The S-Pen with 4096 pressure sensitivity levels works underwater this time around and the display is indeed a Dual Edge 1440p Super AMOLED panel with Edge features and Gorilla Glass 5 protection, as expected.
Although the base Android version is Android Marshmallow and not Nougat like some leaks predicted, it supports the Vulkan API, which is amazing for in-game graphics. In fact, you even get games with "console quality" graphics that's worth $25, free with your purchase. Speaking of purchase, it will be available for purchase from August 19, but pre-orders will begin tomorrow. Stay tuned for more news on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung is gearing up to mass produce the first ever 256GB embedded memory module as a Universal Flash Storage 2.0. Performance is a big advancement over the recent SATA-based solid-state-drives used in high-end PCs.
The UFS memory from Samsung offers ultra-fast speed storage based around their V-NAND flash memory chips. The UFS memory is capable of performing 45,000 input operations and 40,000 output operations each second. The UFS memory is twice the speed of the previous UFS memory type. The latest version uses dual lanes of data transfer to create speeds of 850MB/s which is approximately twice the speed of SATA-based SSDs. For sequential writing, the speed is lower at 260MB/s.
One of the main benefits of the latest version of 256GB UFS memory is that it will better support playback of 4K video content. Tablets now have split screen display technology with 4K video playback that can be combined with a second area of the screen being used to display an app. This tends to push the hardware to the limit. With 4K video, the data read needs to be faster because a 4K video contains so much more compressed image and audio data. This audio/visual data needs to be read, decompressed and played in real-time.
Samsung has just gone into full production of their UFS memory 2.0 chips which will become available later in 2016.
