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.

The return of Nokia into the international market is probably the biggest or at least the most popular theme in the upcoming MWC 2017. Everyone knows that HMD has already launched the Nokia D6 with overwhelming success in China, but we are now more interested about the devices that the company is going to unveil for the international market in a few days.


Rumor has it that the D6 could have an international launch at the MWC, but the spotlight is more focused on the upcoming Nokia P1 and the Nokia 8. There's also the possibility of seeing the iconic Nokia N and E series smartphones making a comeback. However, when it comes to return of an icon, nothing can really match the hype that has been built up ever since it became known that the Nokia 3310 is coming back! Additionally, China may also get a Nokia 3 and a Nokia 5 to compete in the low-end section of the Chinese market. All of the handsets will be running on Android Nougat 7.0 or higher straight out of the box.



Check out the YouTube video by ConceptCreator above to see what the Nokia P1 may look like on release.

HTC One M9

 

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.

mwc 2015


Today, HTC sends out invitations to its upcoming MWC 2015 even next March. The invites are titled with a starry sky and the words "Utopia in progress". Well, it's not much to assume from, but it might indicates that the Taiwanese company is planning on releasing a ground-breaking flagship.

 

The most anticipated device this year is the HTC One (M9), if that's what they decide to call it, will reportedly make the jump to a 5" QHD screen, a Snapdragon 810 chipset, a 20.7MP camera on the front with maybe an UltraPixel selfie camera and a burly 3,500mAh battery to power it all.

The fact that Samsung is working on a smartphone that will sport a foldable display is old news now, but we got to know just recently that two such phones are in development instead of one. Bloomberg reports that the first device will fold in half from the middle, much in the same way as a "cosmetic compact." The second device will initially appear to be a smartphone with a 5-inch display, but can be unfolded to add 3 more inches to the display real estate, making the screen a tablet-sized 8-inch one.


We have been hearing about the "Project Valley" for a long time now and rumors had previously suggested a 2017 release date. The latest report affirms those rumors as it indicates that we might be able to see the foldable phone at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. We are excited to find out what Samsung comes up with, when it's released. It sounds amazing to be able to carry around an 8-inch display in your pocket, but we will have to wait and see, if the manufacturer manages to deliver a device that actually works as well in real life scenarios as it seems would do, on paper. What do you think about the foldable smartphone?

Now that multiple sources have confirmed that Samsung is going to push back the unveiling of the Galaxy S8 to an exclusive event in April at New York City, we weren't really expecting to hear anything about the S8 at the Mobile World Congress next month. If a recent report by The Investor is to be believed, then Samsung might actually be unveiling the S8 at the upcoming MWC 2017 in Barcelona. The same report also mentions that the delayed release date remains unchanged, in spite of the early showcase. In case you are not aware, it is highly likely that the Galaxy S8 will be released for sale in and around mid-April (18th as reported by some of the sources).


While we are not sure what to believe at this point as both the contrasting reports come from credible sources, we would not really mind taking a look at the much anticipated Galaxy S8 next month. The general consensus is that Samsung will display the S8 with a handful of units which the company will bring out especially for this event. By the time it's April though, there will reportedly be ten million S8 smartphones ready to be shipped out to markets around the world.

We knew that the Galaxy Tab S3 was going to be the unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and as expected, we were right. Samsung's email invitation to the media houses for the MWC confirmed that piece of info by containing a teaser preview of the upcoming tablet's bottom bezel. Since Samsung has now confirmed that the Galaxy S8 won't be making an appearance at this event, the Tab S3 will in all likelihood be the company's main attraction in Barcelona.


Samsung will hold its unveiling event at 7PM CET, on the 26th of February where it may or may not showcase a few other smartphones as well. Just in case you are wondering what kind of hardware the Tab S3 will be packing, we have you covered.


9.6-inch 2,048 x 1,535 pixels display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
4GB of RAM
32GB of internal storage
13-megapixel/5-megapixel rear and front cameras


Although the specs mentioned above are gathered from a recent rumor that originated in Korea, the chances of them being right are pretty high.

The Mobile World Congress is the biggest event of the year when it comes to smartphones, tablets and just about any other mobile consumer products. It's almost upon us as February 27 draws near, but do you know what to expect from the smartphone manufacturers this year at Barcelona? We have a pretty good idea, so here are the most anticipated devices that we could be getting a glimpse of in a few days.


HTC Ocean



If rumors are true, the HTC Ocean will be operated entirely via voice commands, gestures and of course, touch.


LG G6



Although the G6 will probably not be sporting the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 flagship chipset, it is expected to sport the world's first 18:9 ratio borderless display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels.


Blackberry Mercury



TCL Communications are making the handsets for Blackberry nowadays and this is going to be their third handset after the collaboration. The Mercury will sport the trademark Blackberry keyboard and a fingerprint scanner.


Moto G5 and G5 Plus



The cameras on the Moto G4 Plus were simply the best in the mid-range segment and the G5 and G5 Plus are rumoured to sport even better sensors. We will have to wait and see what other improvements Lenovo brings in with the two new handsets.


There are also the Sony Xperia X, the Nokia P1 and the Huawei P10 that's incoming in a few days and we are pretty excited about them too. Which ones are you looking forward to the most? In case you were looking for the Galaxy S8 on this list, we are sorry to inform you that Samsung has confirmed that the S8 will be withheld from the Mobile World Congress this year.

Although it's not really anything new because all rumors and leaksters had been saying the same thing for a long time now, but it's still worth mentioning because this is the first time that this has become official; The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona next month. As this plan was revealed by the head of Samsung Mobile, DJ Koh himself at the CES 2018 earlier, it can be considered as authentic news without a doubt.


While we are yet to see any convincingly real live images of the device, you should not expect the S9 or S9+ to sport any radical changes in terms of the design language. They may look quite similar to the S8 and S8+ in fact, with perhaps the exception of the rear mounted fingerprint scanner that will in all likelihood be moved to the center of the back. Also, Samsung might copy Apple (that it has so often been blamed for doing) and reserve the dual camera setup only for the bigger and more expensive S9+. We will find out more soon so stay tuned.
