Almost every week, we heard about new technology coming to the mobile phone industry but mobile chargers are usually the least-focused area of these manufacturers. While we are still a long way off batteries that can survive more than a day without a need to re-charge, we do have the next best thing - super fast charging. Now Vivo has announced super flash charge 120W charging technology that can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery cell in just 13 minutes. Yesterday, Vivo uploaded a video on the Weibo page that demonstrates super flash charge in action without providing much detail of the full charge cycle. In the video, the charging went from 10 to 14 percent battery in just 16 seconds.

So far we have seen Xiaomi 100w charging technology in March but it hasn't reached to the consumer market even after three months. OnePlus 7 Pro's warp has a fast charging speed but Vivo's super flash charge is really insane. But it does rise a question about its impact on the battery life in the long run. Vivo may unveil its super flash charging technology at MWC Shanghai next week with its first 5G enabled smartphone. The competitors may make claim about its negative effect on the battery but that's what we have to see.

The other concern about the heating problem. With xiamoi's charger we have seen this problem. How Vivo manage the over-heating issue, and will this kind of charger can sustain for a long period of time? So far, the fastest charger available is with Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition which fully charge a 3,400mAh battery in 35 minutes.

It is almost impossible to keep a smartphone secret before its official unveiling date these days and as it turns out, the new Pixel phones from Google are no exceptions either. Multiple retailers have leaked all details about the Google Pixel smartphones, ahead of its unveiling tomorrow. For example, Carphone Warehouse is a British retailer which had put up listings for the two phones for a very short time, before removing it. Whether it was an intentional marketing strategy or just a mistake, we are not really sure! Nevertheless, here is what the listings confirm for us about the Pixel and Pixel XL. Do check the pictures also for some more insight into Google's plans for tomorrow.

A brand new version of Apple Music was released on April 28 for Android smartphone users. The most significant change that it brings to the table is that Android users can now access music videos within the application. This is a big change because earlier, this feature was exclusively available to Apple hardware only. Along with this, the app has also introduced a "Family Plan," in which the entire family (a maximum of six) can enjoy the services of Apple Music for a monthly subscription of $14.99. Considering the fact that it generally costs $9.99 per month for every individual subscriber, this sounds like a good plan for families all around.

This update comes in after about two months since the last one, which allowed users to store or move downloaded content on to an external SD card. The effort seems to be in line with Apple trying to boost its services in regard to the video content available on Apple Music. In addition to Vice Media's new exclusive documentary series for Apple Music that was released in March, the company might also be working with Dr Dre to launch a fresh TV show through the app. Since Spotify and Google Play has this area covered for Android users, it would be interesting to see how Apple Music's new features are received by the Android crowd.

Two of the biggest Android flagships of 2016 are going to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2016 on February 21 and rumors regarding the two have reached an all time high now. As you probably know already, we are talking about the Samsung Galaxy S7 series and the LG G5. After being treated to a host of leaked Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge pictures on the web, we have finally been shown what the LG G5 will look like.

This is the most revealing leak yet as we can clearly see both the back and the front of the LG flagship, which removes any doubt regarding its design elements at least. As seen in the picture, there is indeed a dual camera setup on the back, complete with a dual tone flash and possibly even laser autofocus. A circular fingerprint scanner can be seen right below the rear cameras with volume buttons on the side. If we were to make a guess, we would say that this time around, the fingerprint scanner will function as the power button as well.

The body of the G5 is probably made up of metal, but it is hard to tell until we get a closer look at it. The internal specs of the G5 cannot exactly be seen in this picture, but after months of speculations, leaks and rumors we have a pretty good idea about them. Expect the LG G5 to be powered by a SD 820 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and a powerful battery. The 5.6" 1440p display will sport Android M 6.0 out of the box and will possibly be updated to the latest firmware soon after.
