OnePlus is ready to release its next smartphone OnePlus Z that falls under the upper mid-range category. It could be a flagship killing phone with high-end features without getting the user ripped. Recently, the OnePlus 8 Pro was released, but it is slightly more expensive than regular OnePlus phones as it is priced at $899. So far the company manages to keep the prices of their smartphones at the lower cap while providing some premium features.


Initially, there were rumors about OnePlus 8 lite, and the name did make some sense. But on April 14, the OnePlus 8 series was introduced without any lite variant of the phone. In late March, phone tipster Max Weinbach tweeted that OnePlus would adopt a new name for its budget phone; the OnePlus Z. In the past, the company sold a lower-cost variant of its flagship phone after branding it as OnePlus X. The OnePlus Z might be the next phone according to the tradition of the company.


Another leak suggests from the Max J on Twitter, OnePlus Z might be launched in July 2020. He also tweeted an image along with the release date leak. It is unclear if that image is coming from OnePlus itself or some graphic designer created this image according to the leaks available so far, but we may expect that the device might debut later in the year. There might be some delay in the launch of the phone, as many other phones got delayed, due to the coronavirus situation.


Earlier leaks suggest that the OnePlus 8 lite will be around $499, but we don't know if this is the price for OnePlus Z as well. The same online store that leaked about its earlier prices, called Giztop has shown off some specs and prices for OnePlus' upcoming phones. There might be a paid difference of $50 to $100 between the OnePlus Z and the OnePlus 8 if the earlier one needs to be a budget-friendly variant. Rumors suggest that the phone will feature a 6.4-inch display, with front-camera on the top. The phone will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G system-on-a-chip. That's a mid-range processor that features a faster clock speed for the chipset's main core, plus more graphics improvements. The phone will have a 4,000mAh battery with wired charging.

HTC M8 eye

 

HTC has quietly launched an updated version of the new HTC One. Called the HTC One M8 EYE, the new model features just one change, but it also happens to be the one that everybody was asking for. HTC has swapped the 4 UltraPixel Duo-camera from the original M8 to a new 13 megapixel Duo-camera from the Desire EYE but retains the second depth sensor. It also gets the new HTC EYE Experience software from the Desire EYE, but then that is also being made available for the standard M8.

 

HTC M8 Eye

 

Although the original M8 was critically acclaimed for being an excellent smartphone, the UltraPixel camera on the back was universally hailed as being unimpressive due to its low resolution. The latest update fixes that with a three time resolution boost, although low light performance likely won't be as good now.

 

Regardless of that, the M8 EYE is only available in China for now for ¥3,999 ($652).

htc one m9

 

The plan all along was for the HTC One M9 to launch in HTC's backyard. But the date of the release, March 16th, had to be changed reportedly due to a software issue. Some said that the handset was having problems booting up, while others assumed that the problem had to do with the Snapdragon 810's alleged propensity to get a fever. After all, while running a benchmark test, HTC's new flagship had a surface temperature of 132 degrees fahrenheit.

 

But the good news is that HTC has sent out a patch that turns down the heat. A more recent reading of an HTC One M9 test unit showed the phone running at a much cooler 104 degrees fahrenheit, just two degrees higher than the HTC One (M8) ran during that aforementioned benchmark test.

 

So now that everything is copacetic with the HTC One M9, the handset is available for purchase in Taiwan, priced at the equivalent of $698 USD for the 32GB model. The 64GB variant, which is expected to be available at a future date, will be priced at the equivalent of $732 USD.

It looks like Samsung is not big on the waiting game right now as the South Korean manufacturer has already started selling its 2016 flagships in India. They had just revealed the S7 and S7 Edge at a Samsung event in the capital (New Delhi) about a week ago and now you can buy them from the online retailer, Flipkart.


The two phones are also available from Samsung's own online store as well as from local offline shops. Surprisingly, Amazon doesn't yet have them on for sale yet. One might find the ease of availability quite likeable with "flash sales" for popular phones becoming more and more common these days, but once the price tag of roughly $855 or INR 56,900 for the S7 Edge and $733 (INR 48,900) for the S7 is taken into consideration, it seems only natural!


The Indian version of the S7 series won't get the Snapdragon 820 chipset that is powering the US variant, but will be powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC instead. The Exynos chip is almost as powerful as the Snapdragon 820, but the Qualcomm chipset has proven itself to be ever so slightly faster. All other flagship features like the 5.1"/5.5" Super AMOLED 1440p display, 4GB RAM, 32GB in-built storage along with a hybrid SIM / micro-SD card slot, 12-megapixel rear camera, 3000mAh / 3600mAh battery and the Always On display has made it on to the Indian version.

Flexible TV

 

Despite the current trend for curved TV displays, lots of people think its another fancy gimmick. So, Samsung gave you a choice to decide with its New bendable TV that can bends before you Eyes, Yes... Samsung New Flexible/Bendable TV is flat and with a push of a button can turn into curved, so you can have both features on the same TV, Check the video below to see it.

 

Samsung UHD

 

This is Samsung world's first flexible/bendable TV in South Korea and its already Available for sale for a Premium price of $260,000. This Flexible 105-inch biggest appeal is that you'll no longer have to choose between a curvedscreen or a flat one, because it's the first TV that can be both. Just press a button on the remote control and it transforms itself from a flat screen to one that's curved.

 

Flexible TV

 

As far as pricing goes we don't have any details yet, but we think it's safe to assume that it won't be cheap. Certainly not if Samsung's latest "regular" curved screen 4K TV is anything to go by, anyway.

We have had a good look at the Gear S3 Classic and the Frontier back in September when it was showcased at the IFA, but it hasn't hit all the major markets around the world yet. However, that is about to change because the two smartwatches just went on sale in South Korea. They will also be going on sale in markets around the world in the upcoming weeks, starting with the US, the UK, Germany France, Australia, Dubai and Singapore on November 18.


Both smartwatches will be running on Samsung's own Tizen OS, but only the Frontier has LTE connectivity via an embedded SIM. The S3 Frontier will be coming to T-Mobile in the US, but do check with your local carrier to know if the watch will be supported by them. All other features including the GPS navigation, the IP68 waterproofing and the heart-monitor are identical. Although Samsung Pay is supported by both the smartwatches, the facility will only be available in the US, Australia and Singapore at the moment.

The Galaxy Note 7 FE or "Fan Edition" is now officially on sale and if you wanted to own one last year, you can do so now a year later! Of course, you will need to be in South Korea to buy one in the first place. If you are a fan of the device and would like to import one into the US, I am not sure if that's even allowed at this point of time. While the handset should now legally be allowed on flights, I am not entirely sure how airport authorities will feel about importing a Galaxy Note 7 on an aircraft. Nevertheless, it's here in Korea in all its glory for us to gawk at.


With almost identical specs, the Galaxy Note 7 FE looks and feels exactly like it did last year and that's to be expected, given that the only change is the battery being shrunk down to 3,200mAh. The combination of the QHD Super AMOLED display, Exynos 8890 SoC, 4GB of RAM and the S-Pen makes the Galaxy Note 7 still a great smartphone to buy. In fact, at the reduced price of only KRW 699,600 ($606 roughly), it's a very good deal for the ones who don't mind the chip from last year. Only 400,000 units of the handset will be sold in the country and they will be exclusive to three local telecom carriers.

It's no secret that the two giants had been in collaboration for the last year or so and we also knew that the Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition was coming, but now it's finally here. The smartphone is available from Microsoft's own online store in the US if you are interested in buying it. In case you are wondering, yes, the Microsoft Edition Galaxy S8+ is also available for purchase at the store. As of now the Galaxy S8 is priced at $724.99, while the S8+ is priced at $824.99 at the MS Store with special offers for Black Friday.


In terms of hardware, there's nothing new here because they are identical to any other US version of the two handsets. The main difference is in the incorporation of Cortana, Microsoft's own digital AI assistant, which is probably a bit awkward for Bixby now... Aside from that, the Microsoft Edition includes a number of the PC giant's applications, including Microsoft Launcher for easily accessing various file types and documents.

Galaxy Fold

 

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Fold in the US, and so far there are no big complaints. The company is also offering free screen replacement within the guarantee validation time period for the consumer which is rare offer for such an expensive device. The device was due on April earlier this year, but since the company had to review the design due to its complete PR disaster.


The phone was handover to some of the reputed journalists to review the phone but instead the phone broke and couldn't even survive for two days. Samsung spend all this time to repair and revise the design to integrity of the foldable screen. The phone has a 4.6-inch external display when folded and a 7.3-inch screen revealed when it is unfolded like a tablet. In other words, it's a smartphone tablet hybrid and onus is on Samsung to convince potential customers to convince that the Galaxy Fold justify its price tag.


The first thing you see when you unbox the Fold is a care instruction manual which among other warnings, alerts you to not to put excessive pressure to the screen. After some time of using the fold, you may see some crease at the center of the screen when watching the video but it is not too much distracting and may take some time for you to get used to it. Samsung is also offering the special support at no extra charge. You can contact the Samsung experts through a phone call or video chat. They will come to your home or your office according to your convenience. Even if there is no problem so far, the phone is expensive and it will be hard to sell.

Gear VR

 

Samsung announced the Samsung Gear VR virtual reality accessory for the Galaxy Note 4 phablet last week. The Pricing details are out, it will cost $199 in the US. This comes straight from a spokesperson for the Korean company, so it's pretty much official.

 

Sure, a press release would have been nice, but this will have to do for now. The price was revealed at the New York Fashion Week of all places.

 

Gear VR

 

With this, the final piece in the Gear VR's pricing puzzle was put in its place. Recently a rumor claimed the Gear VR would cost €199 in the Eurozone. And since mobile devices and accessories usually get the exact same prices in dollars and euros, the $199 amount for the US seems to confirm that same level for Europe.

AT&T Next starts at $31.54 a month for 30 months, the middle stage is $39.42 for 24 months and the quickest option is $47.30 for 20 months. All these options total $946 at the end, of course.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners in Hungary (SM-N910F) have started getting the update for Android 6.0. This comes as surprise, as previously it was rumoured that Note 4 would receive update in February 2016, after the Galaxy Note5, S6 edge+, S6, and S6 edge.




The new features that are included in the update include battery-enhancing Doze, and contextual search provider Google Now On Tap, which detects the content of the screen and gives search results accordingly.


The update also creates a new Air Command menu, and a feature to capture notes that uses the S Pen to create notes in white on a black background. As per requirement you can recall the notes. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has already been available for many devices in some of the European countries like Hungary (for example: LG G4). The latest distribution data unveiled by Google shows that only .3% of active Android handsets are supporting Android 6.0. It is difficult to agree, but there is only .1 percentage point increment in comparison to the .2% share of Android phones powered by Android 2.2 Froyo. It is expected that Marshmallow share will gain better share in the market once the carriers in the US complete their testing with this OS.
