Huawei released the P40 series this year in April with a 5G phone as well. The cutting-edge Kirin 990 5G chip is super-fast and takes the user experience to the entire next level.

The new iPhone 12 Pro is here and it comes with a wave of new features and cool stuff. But what we like most about it, is its upgraded and super fast processor. The phone has Apple's latest processor - the A14 Bionic. It allows you to load apps and games much faster than ever before. It can also do really fast software and hardware processing to create a stunning photography experience without any glitch.
If you are many iPhone users who love to take photos and shoot videos with their phones, you are going to love the auto-focus feature that comes with the iPhone 12 pro model. The phone has three 12-megapixel cameras on the rear side of the phone with a 12-megapixel camera on the front side and a LiDAR scanner. All three cameras together can take intelligent photo features like smart HDR 3, Deep fusion, Portrait mode, as well as night mode for letting you take pictures in low-light conditions. And because of the LiDAR scanner, the auto-focus of the camera is super fast too.
Apple has also redesigned its phone's exterior this year. Which means you are getting a four-times tougher phone. This is partially due to the new material Apple has used to manufacture their phone - called a ceramic shield. This new material isn't even glass, but nano-ceramic crystals that are transparent. The result is a phone that is super tougher even without a case.
The new iPhone 12 pro has the new MagSafe charging accessory which makes the charging process a lot easier and faster. All you have to do is to snap the wireless charger onto the backside of the phone and it starts to charge the batteries. MagSafe charges at twice the speed of standard wireless charging pads.
Last but not the least, the iPhone 12 Pro has support for the 5G network. That's right. The latest iPhone is future proof. Whether you are watching a movie, playing an online game, or downloading files, you can do it at a much faster speed. This feature may not be exciting for everyone because support for 5G is still limited and we may not have it in every part of the world in a couple of years. But you can benefit from it if you are living in an area that has a 5G network.
Smartphone photography has somewhat influenced amateur photography for a few years now, at least, Apple and Samsung have won the appreciation of photographers and youngsters in general with software enhancements and DSLR-like photos. Recently, we have seen smartphone manufacturers are emphasizing greatly photography sections and bringing larger and sensitive camera sensors. Having a 108MP camera sensor isn't shocking news anymore.
When smartphone companies are competing with each other, Xiaomi decided to join the trend. The company announced its latest development through a Tweet. The company's official Twitter feed shows a short clip of a new 120mmm retractable camera lens that is built specifically for smartphones, taking the ultrawide lens that users are now getting used to, and giving it a major power-up. The tweet says, "Inspired by traditional camera designs, we now introduce you to the 120mm-equivalent retractable-wide aperture lens! Optimized with a bigger aperture and upgraded stabilizer, you can now capture better portraits and low light images.
If you have ever used a traditional camera, you must be familiar with the concept of retractable design. These lenses when pressed and rotate, get the extended length. In some cameras, it automatically starts the camera as well. The retractable camera lens has been absent from smartphones due to several reasons, including fragility and issues like waterproof. Those hurdles remain, which it is likely which Xiaomi is only showing off this bet of technology. Still, we can expect and hope for bigger steps in the future in terms of mobile photography.
Huawei may be facing some international setback after U.S government sactions but fellow Chinese smartphone company Xiamoi is looking for expansion in their products. Xiamoi is working of a new model of Mi that is aimed at young and fashionable people. Mi CC is the latest brand from Xiaomi unveiled on Friday. The company said it stands for camera plus camera in reference to its dual-camera feature but apparently it also refer to cool, colorful, and creative. The end goal of this new phone is to attract the global young mobile consumer.
The company has developed beautiful piece of hardware so far, for the people who care about the looks as well as performance of the smartphones. To date, Xiaomi has launched phones as good as their competition but at a fraction of cost. So far, the company was focusing on high-tech devices to compete with giants in the mobile industry but the focus has shifted to entire new audience who prefer aesthetics over performance. Since Xiaomi has a history of innovative devices with low price tag, the latest Mi CC is one to watch for. Xaimoi has recently bought a smartphone app development business owned by Meitu.
Meitu app has been sold just over 3.5 million times after getting into the smartphone business since 2013. Those numbers were enough to attract Xiaomi's interest in the business. Meitu has a similar positive impression on the fashionable young audience and has gain huge financial success from this small segment of the industry. Xiaomi hasn't said anything about its design or other specification but called it different. "Mi CC is created by one of the youngest product teams in Xiaomi, among which half are art majors and are dedicated to creating a trendy design for young consumers," it wrote in an announcement. There is a teaser which feature this phone but due to stickers and graphics, the phone itself is pretty much hidden.
The Chinese brand Xiaomi launched a new smartphone Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro but this is a renamed version of the Redmi K20 Pro which was already launched back in May. It follows the Xiaomi Mi 9T which was itself a renamed version of the Redmi K20. The Redmi versions are available in China, while the Mi 9T models are manufactured for European countries. The rebranding will make sense to some people as Redmi brand isn't well known outside China.
The Mi 9T Pro has some more desirable features than Mi 9T. It has a rear panel with a nano-holographic finish which gives a stunning look. If you hold it in the hand, you can have at an eye-catching flame effect appeared to be deep below the surface. It looks fantastic, and comes in either red or black, but appears to be missing the blue color from the Mi 9T. the body is made of Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and rear. Xiaomi has chosen a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen for the Mi 9T, with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.
With Mi 9T Pro the device goes notch-less as the selfie camera is a pop-up unit on top of the phone. The device is equipped with a 20-megapixel selfie camera, joined by a triple-lens camera on the back, made of a 48-mega pixel main lens, a 13-mega pixel wide-angle lens, and an 8-mega pixel telephoto lens. The phone comes with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The Mi 9T Pro has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, compared to the Mi 9T's Snapdragon 730. It comes with 6GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage space. The battery has the same 4,000mAh capacity but gains faster charging. It is announced for release in Europe, the Mi 9T Pro costs 400 euros, or about $443, for the 64GB model, or 450 euros/$500 for the 128GB phone.
Xiaomi Malaysia has recently initiated a contest on its official Facebook page that will likely choose ten lucky users among the contestants. The price will be a unit of a new smartphone for each lucky winner. But the company hasn't revealed the smartphone they are going to award. It only shows that the phone will be from a Redmi series and to hide its identity, the company has chosen to use a fake name and called it Redmi XX. The teaser poster along with the competition on the page shows a render of the device that shows the rear side of the phone.
The image shows that the device will feature a quad-camera system stacked vertically in a rectangular housing at the top left corner of the rear panel. The phone is in a dark orange color that looks really unique and youthful. The device looks like the Redmi Note 9 4G that was released in China and is similar to the Poco M3. The tech enthusiasts and leakers suggest that this is Redmi 9T which was certified in Thailand recently.
The Redmi 9T is the upcoming smartphone by the same company. The phone in rumors is expected to feature a full HD+ display of 6.33-inches. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that can be further extended with an external slot. The device will be powered by a large 6.000mAh battery. The camera is rumored to be a quad-camera system with a 48MP primary camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Some rumors suggest that the phone will also have a fourth sensor which is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera lens. As appeared from the picture, the design is similar to the Redmi Note 9 4G. There is no word yet about the release date of the phone but the contest will end on the 7th of January 2021. So, we can expect the announcement of the phone by the first week of January.
Huawei was working on a new operating system after Trump administration enforced a ban on Huawei and Google announced to ceased its support of Android for the company's smartphones. And now, Huawei has officially announced HarmonyOS, the OS that is supposed to replace its reliance on Android. In China, the software is referred to as Hongmeng. The company says that the OS is based on a microkernel distributed OS, and can be used in everything from smartphones to in-vehicle systems. This will create a shared ecosystem across devices. The OS will be released as an open-source platform to encourage developers to work on it.
Since the US ban on Huawei back in May, the Chinese Govt. has shown its full support to the company and company announced that it is going to work on its own OS, but so far, we aren't sure about its reliability and global acceptance. Huawei plans to launch the new OS on a smartphone first before expanding it to other devices like wearables over the next three years. The first devices that will be getting HarmonyOS are expected to be unveiled on Saturday. The focus of this os is the Chinese market at first before Huawei expands it to other markets.
n a statement, the CEO of Huawei's consumer business group, Richard Yu, says that HarmonyOS is "completely different from Android and iOS" because of its ability to scale across different kinds of devices. "You can develop your apps once, then flexibly deploy them across a range of different devices," the CEO says. Although the OS has the ability to power more devices, in a follow-up press release, Huawei said that for the time being, they are going to use it only on the upcoming smartphones. It will continue using Android on its existing phones. Whether it can continue to do so is another matter. In a press conference following the launch, Yu said that the situation was "unclear" as to whether Huawei can still use Android, and that the company is "waiting on an update" to find out.
Huawei has launched its next flagship smartphone - Mate 30 Pro in Berlin. The only problem is that the phone can't be sold in Germany or anywhere in Europe due to the security ban by the Trump administration. The Mate 30 Pro has a cutting-edge curved display, a more powerful processor, and more cameras than iPhone 11 but it is practically useless without Google's Android software. That means you can't have YouTube, Google maps, Google app store, or any app available on it.
Huawei said that it will provide some workaround to enable users to download some of the apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Netflix. But Huawei knows that people won't buy it without these apps that's why it is not even being launched in western European countries. This could hinder some serious damage on the Huawei sales figure this year. Huawei is the second large smartphone manufacturer of Android smartphone after Samsung. The company was planning to be the number one by 2020 before it got hit by a security ban by Trump.
The Trump admin is also trying to get other countries to block the Huawei's 5G mobile network equipment. The previously released phones are still getting the software update for some time to enable users to have the time to switch to another phone manufacturer. In China, this band didn't affect much because the Chinese people don't use these apps and have alternative apps for years. The company has started to work its smartphone software called HarmonyOS but it may take years to match the Android's functionality and popularity.
While Mate 30 has the cutting-edge hardware to beat the latest iPhone, the company is facing a problem to get the attention of consumers due to the unpredictable situation after the ban. "Huawei has Apple soundly beaten when it comes to form-factor design but even these beautiful looking devices are going to struggle to see any volume without the Google ecosystem," Richard Windsor, a mobile analyst, said in a note this week.
This is not new to anyone in the industry, but the Trump Administration has intentionally tried to hurt Chinese manufacturers and their business by placing these and its subsidiaries on the country's Entity list. That means that Chinese manufacturers like Huawei can't import products from US-based companies. This restriction was also imposed on software-based products as well. The immediate side effects of this trade ban are that many new Huawei and Honor smartphones can't use the Google Mobile Services, which includes the Google Play Store and Google Play Services.
This trade ban starts to imply on the smartphones being launched in late 2019 and early 202 flagship devices. Which includes the Huawei Mate 30 series and the Huawei P40 series. However, Huawei has found some unique way around this trade ban, which involves tweaking an existing already-certified model and then re-releasing it to the market. That's what the company seems to be working on right now with the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. The smartphone in question was promoted on Huawei's consumer page in Germany. It previously launched a P30 Lite new Edition with Google Mobile Services.
This removes the limitation on Huawei - that can't get GMS certification for new phone models and can use the certification for only the existing model. Huawei can re-release and rebrand their existing phones as many times as they like. This is a quite flexible probation for them, too. They can add a few upgrades such as RAM, storage, and different variants of the camera module without trying to ship a new SoC. They can even change the final design of the finished product to make it look brand new. Based on the existing SoC, the phone will have a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC since that will allow the company to retain the original P30 Pro's GMS certification. And we may have to see some new upgrades in terms of more storage, RAM, and design options.
Huawei usually announces two premium smartphone series every year: The P series and the Mate series. The P series has already arrived in the market in the early months, while the Mate series is still on the hold and we can expect it somewhere in the second half of the year. With the Huawei P series already being announced, all tech enthusiasts are waiting for the Mate series. Especially, with the Trump administration's actions against Huawei, things are quite interesting with the Chinese smartphone users, as nothing to seem to stop the company from rising against the odds.
The Huawei Mate 10 was the first phone in the series and was introduced almost 3 years ago in 2017. The Mate 20 was launched in the next year in October 2018 , and the Mate 30 series was introduced in September 2019. This gives us a hint that the Mate 40 series might launch somewhere in October, as rumors suggest. While we don't have any official announcement or date yet, we can assume easily that the phone will be launched in near future.
The Huawei Mate 30 was initially priced around €799, while the Pro model started at €1099. The Mate 30 Pro with 5G was sold at €1199. We are expecting something similar pricing model for this year's Huawei Mate 40 series smartphones. The Mate 40 and Mate 40 Pro will have prominent camera housing at the rear side with possibly a triple camera for the vanilla model and a quad camera for Mate 40 Pro smartphone. As per rumors, the Huawei Mate 40 will have a 6.4-inch or 6.67-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate.
Mate 40 will be using the Kirin 9000. With the US trade ban in place, companies can't manufacture any new chip and as per resources, this is the last phone from the company that will use already-stockpiled chips. The Mate 40 offers 6/8GB of RAM and Mate 40 Pro comes with the higher 12GB option. In terms of battery, we expect to see at least 4,000mAh or 5,000mAh battery. To answer your curiosity, as we all know, there won't be any Google Apps or services. Which means you can't use apps like Whatsapp or banking apps.
Now that we all know that the LeEco Le Pro3 is on the verge of release, LeEco seems to be all set to unveil two new phones once again. The company has been really at it in 2016 with new releases hitting markets around the world every few months or so. Nevertheless, one cannot disagree that they do bring absolutely top end hardware at unbelievable prices. For example, the LeEco Le Pro3 is coming with a Snapdragon 821 SoC but is expected to cost only around $340 or less. Unfortunately, we don't have much info about the two mysterious upcoming phones from the Chinese OEM, except the image that you see above.
The good thing is that the image does reveal a curved display and if it is truly that then we could see the first curved screen LeEco smartphone in November. On the other hand, rumors around a LeEco smartphone with 8GB of RAM have been flying around a lot lately. Could it be that the rumoured Le 2S with 8 gigabytes of RAM is about to make an appearance next month with a curved display? We certainly hope so!
Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)
Mobile technology has come a long way since the first phones to hit the market. What was once a brick that could merely make calls and send basic text messages has now evolved into a fully-fledged smart phone loaded with infinite capabilities.
Whether you own an Android or iOS smart phone, the world is constantly at your fingertips, wrapped up in neat packaging and supported by a lithium iron battery that is portable. You can send emails, claim a casino slots bonus, watch the news or engage with others on social media, all from the palm of your hand.
That's exactly why new age devices like smartphones have become all the rage, and in some cases even led to addiction. Our modern lifestyles require get up and go living, new smartphones in 2017 have given us the possibility of on the go computing, with complete confidence and independence.
The following features aren't exactly fresh off the technology press. These emerging mobile technologies are already starting to have an impact on the way we use our smart phones. Given the time and advances in these tech fields, the following emerging mobile technology could be flipping the smartphone on its ear for good.
Forget About A Carrier With Wi-Fi Phones
Traditionally, mobile phones have relied upon a mobile carrier/network in order to be connected to the cellular realm. In today's modern times, the use of a carrier is becoming less and less attractive with new smartphones that can connect to a Wi-Fi network to make VOIP or Voice Over Internet Protocol calls without the use of a computer.
This means that you no longer have to be associated with a particular network carrier in order to make and receive phone calls. It's forward thinking Tech that could also see your phone bill dramatically decreased come month end.
Augmented Reality In Mobile Devices
Augmented Reality technology is making waves in the mobile world with more and more uses for the tech; smart phones could be seeing an even smarter realization very soon.
Augmented Reality technology captures our world in a layer style approach and superimposes it into the digital world. Since your smartphone is king of digital space at the moment, it only makes sense that more and more apps would be developed around AR.
Users can look forward to features that would ideally incorporate the Internet, accelerometers and GPS devices to bring your world to life on your phone. The end result could have you pointing your smartphone at a random building only for your phone to dive into the buildings history, location, occupancy and more.
Open Your World With Open Source Software
Developers are looking into bringing the world open source software for mobile phones. There are some big names on the playground already, with the likes of Google and Yahoo set to create this software for almost any mobile phone.
If open source smart phones become available it would mean a better user experience all round. Some of the advantages include enhanced features/mobile compatibility and lower costs derived from open source trade in the market place.
These mobile services would be able to do just about everything current smart phones do and more at a minimal cost to customer.
Make Payments With Your Smart Phone
With Near Field Communication technology improving at a rapid rate, it's becoming more and more accessible to use your smartphone as a payment portal.
Users simply scan their mobile device and use an app that is directly linked to your debit or credit card and your payment is almost instant. When the technology has been perfected there won't even be a need for a wallet anymore, as your mobile phone will store all your information.
Realistic Typing With Tactile Feedback
Most modern mobile phones have touch screen technology that is responsive and quick to the take. Some users do however have an issue with the response rate and feeling the keys slide away under your thumbs only to deliver a word that was never supposed to be there in the first place.
Certain smart phone developers like Blackberry tried to bridge this gap by offering users the best of both worlds, with a fully functional touch screen and keypad for texting/typing.
Now developers are looking into a touchscreen that would feel more responsive and ergonomic. This tech is still in development but we could potentially be seeing it in smartphones in 2018.

Lately, Samsung switched to premium metal frames for its device's body design. The upcoming Galaxy S6 will allegedly join the trend with a metal frame body which will solve the problems that faced Samsung before on the market for using less than premium materials unworthy of upmarket flagship devices. However, Solving one problem typically creates others in the process, and antenna interference is one result of the metal used on the Galaxy S6's body.
A report in Korean media states that Samsung is resorting to the New FPCB antenna technology in the Galaxy S6, aiming to battle the negative effects of the metal frame on signal reception.
"FPCB" stands for Flexible Printed Circuit Board where thin strips of conductor (copper) are laminated in between two layers of PET polymer. They find wide application in the electronics industry when space constraints limit the use of rigid circuit boards.
The predominantly used type of antennas in recent years are manufactured using the LDS technology, or Laser Direct Structuring. It allows for a precise 3D shape to be modeled, thus fitting in whatever space the engineers find unoccupied in the device. This actually makes it superior to FPCB, the flexibility of which is limited.
We have enough leaks of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge... Now we got some more leaked photos of the upcoming Samsung's flagships Earbuds. Samsung always delivers the best Sound experience for its users on its high-end device, this year Samsung made a new earbuds unique design for better sound quality
These alleged hands-on shots of the earpods that were sent to Vietnamese mobile site Tinhte show the 'phones that will be packaged with both versions of Samsung's forthcoming flagship Android handsets.
A previous rumour also suggested that Samsung was working with Sennheiser on the technology for its new included headphones, so these might be a result of that partnership. However, there is no visible Sennheiser branding on them, so either that was part of the deal or that team-up failed to materialise in time.
Samsung has just officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S6 with an all New Metal-frame design and Dual-Glass panels (font - back). The new combination of materials works great indeed and the Galaxy S6 is arguably, the most beautiful Galaxy smartphone to date. However, this time around the Galaxy S6 isn't dust and water proof though.
Samsung Galaxy S6 packs a 5.1" Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution resulting into the amazing 577 ppi density. It is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The hardware Home key once again doubles as fingerprint sensor and supports the new Samsung Pay service.
Samsung Galaxy S6 duo comes with a new ISOCELL camera sensor with 16MP resolution. The camera is enhanced with optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus and has a single-LED flash. Quite expectedly, 4K video recording is supported.
Finally, the Galaxy S6 runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Out-of-the-box enhanced with the latest TouchWiz UX with Material design and cleaner interface and lost of new features included on the new TouchWiz UX. This time around Samsung has partnered with Microsoft, instead of Dropbox, and will be offering 115GB OneDrive storage for 2 years to each Galaxy S6 user.
The S6 is powered by the Samsung's own 64-bit Exynos 7420 chipset, built on a 14nm process and thus more energy-efficient and producing less heat compared to 20nm Snapdragon 810.
Samsung Galaxy S6 will launch on April 10th in 20 markets, followed soon by even more countries in May. The Galaxy S6 will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 was launched in 4 different colors (White, Black, Blue and Gold Platinum) and they all will be available in stock by April,10th. Now, Samsung UK's web site lists the Galaxy S6 in five colors, instead of the official four.
The fifth option is "Dark Brown", it also cannot be clicked and disappears if you navigate away from the specific page in the source link. There isn't even an image of the device in Brown.
So, publishing the Brown color option was certainly a mistake. Its existence might be for real though. There's no trace of it on other local Samsung sites, suggesting it may be a UK carrier exclusive. The Galaxy S6 edge does not have a fifth color either, at least not yet.
Today, Samsung launched Two new colors for its latest flagship devices, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. both devices are already available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum color variants... the Korean giant decided to add two new Exclusive colors.
The First color is "Blue Topaz" which is exclusive to the Galaxy S6 Only, the 2nd color is "Green Emerald" which is exclusive to the Galaxy S6 Edge Only.
As expected, these new color schemes will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB guise. Exact launch date for those colors will vary by region.
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.
Another Steve Jobs biography movie is coming this year (2015). It's hard to believe that this movie is already happening after how long it bounced around without finding a star or a director. The good news is that it ended up with Michael Fassbender and Danny Boyle of course.
A first look at what they're making came out on Sunday, and it's a great start. Tech fans may take issue with some of the details, but it seems to be nailing the tone. It' will be on theaters by October,9th the same time as Apple will announce the new iPhone 6s. Enjoy the first Exclusive Trailer below!
Samsung faced lots of difficulties in the production process of its latest Galaxy S6 Edge which lead to the opening of another edge display factory ahead of schedule, a whole new factory dedicated to produce Curved displays for Samsung devices. The Korean giant is now looking to expand its Edge-screened range.
According to a report from the Korean media, Samsung is working on a New Edge device, which will be released before the the Galaxy Note Edge's successor, which also known as Note 5 Edge - Project Zen. So far it has been assumed that the sequel to the company's pioneering curved screen device is set to be announced this fall, alongside a vanilla Galaxy Note 5.
Project Zen is tipped to come with a dual-edge display around the 5.5-inch mark, S Pen and an inferior chipset. Then the inevitable question must be asked, if there will be enough room between it and the Galaxy S6 edge for yet another smartphone with such a screen.
Samsung latest flagship devices such as Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ launched with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop that packs a whole New TouchWiz UX. The New User Interface adopts Google's Material Design even more.
In the New 2015 TouchWiz, Samsung updated all its default system apps, from music player, photo gallery to the settings, contacts app, phone dialer and multi-task manager. This release is focusing more on the Interface than adding new core-features to the software. we have to be honest, TouchWiz UI came a long way since its release with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Check the Exclusive screenshots below to Take a first look at the New TouchWiz UX (all screenshots below are taken from a Galaxy Note5), Enjoy!

In this update HTC is giving M9 users the ability to tweak the color temperature of their phone's display.

Salary is the worst addiction that makes you kill your dreams and work your whole life. We get up early in the morning and travel to work 9 to 5 for an income that only fulfills our basic needs. On top of that, we don't have the freedom of our own life. We can't travel, take days off, or rest if we like it. Jobs bound us to a strict routine of slaves and keeps our mouth shut with minimum wage.
The world is starting to see how jobs take away our entire life. That's why people are more focused on starting their own business. But it's not as simple as most of us might think. Most startups usually fail within the first year, and very few of them manage to become a stable business with a decent income. The problem is our education system. They teach us how to be a good employee, but no one tells us how to start a business. They don't give us practical education or experience.
We discover new things by making mistakes and suffering terrible losses. We can only withstand a limited number of losses before we fall down. And not all of us have the courage to get up again and give the business another shot.
So, what's the solution to this problem?
Use the internet and contact experienced people of the same industry to learn from them. Don't for the time when you will give up everything and start working on your new business. Learn things whenever you can. Only when you are sure that now you have learned enough to start a successful business of your industry should you take the next step.
The Internet is the source of valuable information where you learn from the experience of other people. This article is one of them. This is a humble approach to share our experience and knowledge with all ambitious entrepreneurs and businessmen. Here I have shared things you must have when starting a new business. You don't necessarily need all of them. It's just some things that may be helpful for some businesses and essential for some industries.
A Unique Selling Proposition
This is not optional. If you are to start a business, you must have an idea that is unique. Of course, the entire business idea can't be unique due to the saturation we have in every single market. However, you can add one unique thing in the same cliché idea to stand out in the market.
For example, for a food business, you could have a great taste that your customers won't find anywhere else. Whether it be quality, low prices, or additional service, that's for you to decide. It's not something you would find easily. You will have to research the entire market. See what people are doing and what your customers expect. Look for a market gap and make it your unique selling point.
Focus all your business processes and marketing on that unique selling point to attract and retain customers. As long as you keep offering that uniqueness, you will keep getting returning customers. And a business with loyal customers never fails.
At Least Six Month of Budget
It's a frequently asked question: how much money do you need to start a business? There is no one right amount. It all depends on the industry and the scale of the company you are starting. There is also not one formula to get an exact number. But here is something that will give an approximate idea of what you need.
First, make a list of initial necessities you will need for the business. For example, equipment, workers, office, etc. write down the price that would be spent before starting operations.
After that, get an estimate of how much money you will have to spend if you don't get any return at all. It includes rents, bills, and wages.
Finally, multiply the monthly expenses to six and add it with initial expenses. That's your total investment. Remember, you multiplied the monthly expenses to six because you must have at least six months of budget to keep the business running. You can't expect profit at the beginning, and you need a strong backbone to suffer losses for this time period.
You start your marketing before you start operations. This means that you will spread brand awareness and let the world your business exist. So, you will be getting calls from prospects who may be interested in your product or services. If you don't properly retain them, you will lose potential customers. That's why you will need a professional phone number with a receptionist to answer all such calls.
For many businesses, having a receptionist is crucial. For example, a doctor can't make an appointment and deal with customers while also treating a line of patients.
Now you might be wondering how a new business can afford a receptionist. It's difficult enough to pay for other expenses, and hiring a receptionist before starting operations would be way out of budget. Fortunately, there is a perfect solution for it.
There are businesses that let you outsource receptionist work. You get an answering service from a reliable company that will professionally deal with all your calls. Every time someone calls your number, it will be attended by a real person who will guide them as per your instructions. This will present you as a professional company to impress your prospects.
You will be left way behind the market if you don't have a website. You might wonder since when a website is so important. It's become crucial as most of the world population regularly started using the internet. It works like an online branch of your business where you will get customers. Whether it's a product or a service you offer, you can rely on the internet to get you leads that you will contact to convince and convert into customers.
You need a domain, hosting, and a website. The first two barely cost $50 a year. As for the website, you can get one in any budget. There are sites you can get in $20, and you can have them custom-built for additional cost according to your requirements. With this, you should also consider acquiring some digital marketing services to promote your website and attract potential customers.
A Network of Relevant Professionals
A network is one of the biggest assets of a professional. People think money is all they need to start a business. Honestly, you can always arrange the funds. But you can't have someone else run the business at your place. It's very important that you stay in touch with every professional that is remotely linked to your industry or business.
Even if they are not in the same industry, save their contact number and keep in touch. You should try to have one person from every profession in your network. You never know when you might need a lawyer. Other than that, the expertise of a marketer is also useful. Furthermore, keep business cards of reliable electricians, mechanics, plumbers, and other such professionals for maintenance of your office.
Many businesses are not allowed to operate without a license. For example, if you are a dentist, you will need to get a license first. You get the license only after your fulfill certain requirements. The government doesn't want an unqualified person to provide services that could harm somebody. That's why a license is important. Get information about its requirements and complete them before you even start the plan of your business.
Document of Roles and Responsibilities
You might be working alone, have partners, or employees. Many businessmen underestimate the value of documentation, which they later regret. You need to write detailed roles and responsibilities of each actor and have him sign before you start working together. If you don't do that, it will later cause problems between you two.
It's particularly important if you have a co-founder or partner. Decide what goals each of you must achieve to keep the business running. If you are the one doing all the work and the other one only benefitting, sooner or later you will sick of it. Write documents and decide that each will only be rewarded after achieving certain goals and milestones.
Team of Business Developers
There are businesses with lousy products and services that keep running and making profit just because they have great business developers. Their job is to bring work for you, in other words, customers. It takes more time to attract a customer than to retain it. You can't spend all your time looking for customers and convincing them. Your expertise lies elsewhere, and that's where you should focus.
Work on your product or service to provide the best user experience. Business developers will bring customers to your doorsteps. If you can retain them with quality, they will keep returning, reducing your marketing cost. Make sure you find some experienced business developers and hire them on commission at the initial phases.
2016 is the year that has given the hopes to the Nokia fans owing to its return to the smartphone arena. As per the terms of buyout by Microsoft, the Finnish giant's mobile business could not compete with Microsoft and hence didn't manufacture any smartphone under the Nokia brand. That agreement became void on December 31, 2015 and the fans can quite excited by the sheer imagination of what could happen in the future. One probable smartphone for a 2016 release came into limelight in leaked images before a few weeks and now once again different set of pictures of the same device have found their way to the internet.
If there is one sure shot information that can be told about the design of the smartphone, then we'd say that the device is quite boxy. This is not in a negative way, especially taking into account the all-metal body, crossed only by a pair of antenna lines on the back. Other device controllers that can be spotted on the phone are a volume adjuster on the left side and a power button below the device. On the other side, we can see a well isolated cover, most likely a space for the SIM tray and microSD card slot. That can mean IP rating, but let's not go overboard.
It is also quite compelling to see that the newly released pics of the phone seems to be from different unit, as doesn't have prototype marks of the first one. This actually adds to the genuineness of the leak and eventually would mean that the smartphone is essentially one of the three new Nokia smartphones going for a release this year.
Microsoft is killing Nokia Branding step by step, the company just announced the "Microsoft Portable Power DC-21" with a 6,000 mAh charger available in three different bright colors. It is the most powerful charger by the company to date, but it is also the first one using the new branding "Microsoft" not "Nokia" or "Lumia".
Since Microsoft is dropping the Nokia branding already, I guess the rumors were true and upcoming phones and accessories will be Microsoft branded as well.
About the charger now. Microsoft Portable Power is a 6,000 mAh portable charger available in white, green and orange. When used with Nokia Universal Fast USB Charger AC-60 (or any 1.5A wall charger I suppose), it goes up to 80% for three hours and up to 100% in four hours. The Charger will cost about $50.
Nokia seems to be over. Sadly, the Finish Giant won't be releasing any Smartphones anymore, this was confirmed by Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri at a recent analyst meeting in London. Nokia will still consumer products to its fans.
Nokia, the former biggest phonemaker in the world, could get its return as soon as tomorrow Nokia just teased that it has been working on something. It will show it off or talk about it at the #Slush14 startup and entrepreneur meetup that starts tomorrow in Helsinki and is said to gather some 10 thousand people.
The teaser itself shows a new device but we can only guess what it is a HTPC, a TV, home automation tech? Hopefully we're going to know all about it tomorrow.
It's hard to imagine Nokia not making any smartphones or phones in general but we'd wager a guess that it's not all over for the company, despite what its CEO reassures us of now. CEOs change and so do plans in the tech world and Nokia is only forbidden to make Nokia phones until December,31st of 2015.
Nokia Mobile is sending official invitations for the upcoming launch of new Nokia devices. The press release suggests that the event is scheduled, as always, a day before the start of Mobile world congress 2020 in Barcelona. On 23rd February, it started at 16:00 Barcelona time, new Nokia devices will be announced.
According to the different leaks, users can expect to see 5 different Nokia devices including 3 smartphones and 2 feature phones. A 5G Nokia 8.2, Nokia 5.2, Nokia 1.3, and a new device called Nokia 400 4G will be released.Nokia 8.2 is a 5G device but has a price tag that may attract even price-conscious users. The Nokia 82. Could hit the market with a price tag for less than 500 euro. Some of the cheapest 5G devices on the market right now are the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Samsung Galaxy A90 but have a higher price than 500 euro.
Nokia 8.2 is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 765 and chipset designed to bring 5G connectivity to the users.
It should be paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage at least to support the 5G network. The design has very minimal bezels and uses a pop-up camera with the 64-megapixel lens for the selfies. The phone will have a physical fingerprint scanner at the back of the device and there will be a headphone jack as well. The leaks suggest that the Nokia 8.2 might have a 3,500mAh battery that may not be enough for heavy-users considering the large display and extra battery drain requirements due to 5G connectivity.
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.
Since launching the flagship One M9 smartphone earlier this year, HTC has been rather quiet. But according to company chairperson and CEO Cher Wang, there's more to come from the Taiwan-based firm later on in 2015, with a slew of new smartphones heading to the consumer market.
There's no doubt that the HTC One M9 is a great smartphone. The M9 ticks most of the boxes one would expect of a flagship device at this point. But with Samsung, the market-leader in terms of top-tier Droids, having really thrown down the gauntlet with its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, the One M9 has drawn some flak for being perhaps too similar to last year's One M8.
Given past release cycles, it's seemingly unlikely that HTC will drop another handset this year to equal or best the One M9 or the almost-identical One M9+. But according to DigiTimes, the company's CEO spoke of a "new series" of smartphones in the pipeline during a meeting of shareholders, although whether this will entail as few scattered handsets or an entirely new product line remains to be seen.
Last week, the HTC 850C was leaked, with the accompanying report indicating that it will be of the Desire variety and aimed towards the Chinese market. Given the inclusion of dual SIM slots, it would seem less than likely that the 850C will reach the Western market, and the same could be said of the Desire-esque HTC WF5W, which also emerged a short while ago. With a super-svelte design, though, the WF5W looks promising in terms of a new direction that HTC could take regarding the design of its smartphones, and as such, it'll be interesting to learn of what the company has up its sleeve.
Now it's time to get a sneak peek at yet to be announced HTC One X9 smartphone based on Android. Thanks to China's TEENA, we are able to get some concrete information related to the rumoured phone. The telecommunication agency has taken a step further by revealing specs of the gadget along with detailed images.
According to the images posted by TEENA the phone looks a lot similar to what the images leaked earlier this week depicted. It seems the device will be sporting BoomSound speaker and retaining the flatter back side. Interesting thing is that the company will be moving the criticized front-branding to the top of the phone.
Revealed specs suggest that the device will boast a Full HD 5.5 inch display, a 2.2GHZ Quad core Soc (brand is not yet known), 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage, 13 MP snapper in the back along with 5 MP counterpart in the front and support for microSD. The dimension is reported to be 153.2mm X 75.9mm, 7.99mm thick, and the weight will be around 174 grams. These pictures will serve to strengthen the growing discourse that HTC has "copied" other smartphones like Huawei Nexus 6P or the Lenovo PHAB Plus.
First confirmed News from the Taiwanese giant. HTC will be revealing Two major New Flagship Smartphones on March,1st at the MWC 2015 event. Many expect the company to announce the One M9 and One M9 Plus, as successors to last year's One M8.
The latest leaked press image (via @evleaks) shows two new, never-before-seen HTC smartphones that have similar design traits to other recent phones from the company. They appear to have metal chassis, center-mounted front cameras, and HTC's signature front-facing BoomSound speakers in a similar configuration to last year's mid-range Desire Eye. The only visible difference between the two phones is what appears to be a fingerprint scanner below the HTC logo on one of them. Other leaks have referred to this particular model as the "Hima Ultra" which will be called on the market "HTC One M9 PLUS", the other phone's codename is just "Hima" which will be the regular HTC One M9.
We don't know what the Plus version extra features is yet... It is said this "Ultra" model will have HTC's DuoCamera feature and a fingerprint scanner and may just be destined for the Chinese market. Other specs that have been reported include a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 display, UltraPixel front-facing camera, 20-megapixel rear camera, and a Snapdragon 810 processor.
