Evan Blass does it again as he releases the eagerly awaited specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 3. If he is right, then it's all good news for fans of the Chinese OEM. NFC makes a comeback to this year's OnePlus and we love that. Also, as expected, the OnePlus 3 will come equipped with the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6 gigabytes of RAM on the premium variant. There will also be a cheaper 4GB variant apparently.
Since manufacturing OLED panels are now cheaper than ever, it is not really surprising to see that the OnePlus 3 will be adopting an AMOLED panel for its display. The resolution has not yet been revealed, but rumors suggest that OnePlus will stick to the 1080p resolution for this year as well.
Reportedly, there will be a 3,000 mAh battery, state of the art fingerprint scanner and an USB Type-C port. What is interesting is that OnePlus might actually be testing out Android N on its upcoming flagship phone as you read this. However, it would be highly unlikely (but an excellent surprise!) for the Plus 3 to operate on Android N right out of the box. The chances of the budget flagship device running on Marshmallow at launch are far greater.

All other hypes and rumors were crushed when Oppomart listed the OnePlus 3 on their website with a price tag of $369. The product was marked as "out of stock," but it gave away almost everything about the phone with official pictures and detailed specs! You will find the "published" specifications of the OnePlus 3 below.
Display: 5.5" 1080p
Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU and Adreno 530 GPU
RAM: 4GB/6GB (DDR4)
In-built storage: 32GB/64GB/128GB UFS 2.0
16-megapixel rear camera (Sony IMX298) with optical image stabilization
8-megapixel front camera
Fingerprint scanner in the Home button
Support for 4G LTE-FDD and multimode modem
Battery: 3,650mAh with Quick Charging
OS: Oxygen OS built on Android 6.0 Marshmallow
If this turns out to be true (which is very likely), then OnePlus is all set to deliver another stellar product to its customers. However, we think that the $369 price tag is meant for the entry level variant of the OnePlus 3, so if you want the beastly version with 6GB of RAM, you might have to shell out more. Do you like what you see? What do you think the beefiest variant of the OnePlus 3 would be priced at?

OnePlus has a reputation for mid-range smartphones but after years of keeping its budget-conscious consumers happy, the company is now moving to premium high-end flagships. OnePlus 8 Pro is its latest premium flagship smartphone starting at $899. It is one of the most expensive phones in the market right now even though it hasn't crossed the $1000 price line yet. OnePlus has been keen on its design, visual changes, and material choices. It even unveiled a concept phone that aims to showcase their evolving proficiency in colors, material, and final look and feel. With the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company decided to finally go for wireless charging, implementing its new 30-watt wireless warp charge, and finally adding rationality to their decision of using the fragile backing material.
Last year's model, the OnePlus 7 was considerably larger than what any user would consider comfortable. The OnePlus 8 Pro has similar weight and dimensions, but it's slightly narrow and taller. However, the display area is 6.67" diagonally to 6.68". The company opted for a punch hole at the top of the screen at its front side. This is interesting as compared to the last generation when OnePlus 7 Pro has a true full-screen display, free of instructions. Some users might find teardrop cutout in the top-center of the screen less intrusive than any hole punch.
The OnePlus 8 Pro also has new display features such as motion processing, adaptive display white balance, and SDR-to-HDR up-mapping. OnePlus partnered with a company called Pixelworks for these features, and there is a dedicated display processor in the OnePlus 8 Pro that handles them. You can read more about these features (as well as with a few others) in our separate OnePlus 8 display tech preview.
The OnePlus 8 Pro has a 12MP camera that results in very sharp edges, and the image processing favors aggressively high contrast and saturation. The front-facing camera is really good even in low-light conditions. However, the result may not come as the best as compared to the other rival's cameras. The handset comes with the latest OxygenOS addition with a new dark mode.
Want to know about the OnePlus 9 camera specs? In this article, we have gathered leaks and reports on the phone specs. The leaks suggest that the OnePlus 9 is going to feature a 48Mp primary sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide sensor, plus a third sensor. At the moment, there isn't any information on the third camera sensor but we can guess that it might be a macro sensor. The OnePlus 8T has a primary sensor, an ultra-wide camera sensor, a macro sensor, and a depth sensor. A user at the XDA forum spotted new strings in the third OxygenOS open beta release for the OnePlus 8 series.
The leaked renders of the standard OnePlus 9 device from the internet shows the triple-camera array housed in the top-left corner of the back of the device. Another leaker OnLeaks uploaded pictures of the upcoming OnePlus 9 pro that has a 6.55-inch curved display with a punch hole for the selfie camera in the top-left corner. The rear panel of the phone is said to be made of glass. The phone will be released in March but due to the pandemic, we might see some change in the release date.
As the render leaked, the upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro will feature the same rectangular camera house housing. However, it seems that the Pro variant will feature an additional camera sensor and a rectangular LED flash. Another major difference between the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro is the size of the display screen. The OnePlus 9 Pro has a larger 6.7-inch curved display compared to the 6.55-inch flat display on the regular OnePlus 9. OnLeaks further adds that while the vast detail of the phone specs is already out but the company may change some small detail before launch. The primary sensor of the phone will be a 48MP ultra-wide sensor and unspecified third sensors.
Snapdragon 888 is Qualcomm's latest premium processing chip that will pretty much power every Android flagship smartphone next year. And following the announcement, Realme has announced that it has already started the development of a new smartphone - codenamed Race, and says that it will be powered by the new processing chip.
According to a tweet by the official Realme UK account, the phone will be the first flagship in the market to be powered by this new processor. This means that we can expect the phone to be launched at the quiet start of next year. Although we had not much information about this flagship previously now it has sparked an interest among the consumers. The codename Race wasn't just a random pick. From the recent reports, we can safely assume that Race is short for Realme Ace.
And now when the industry's interest has been shifted to the Realme race, we have seen some leaks around the phone as well. The leak by GSMArena reveals that the phone will bear the model number RMX2202. The same leaks also suggest that the phone will run the latest Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 out of the box. The phone will feature 12GB of rAM and 256GB of storage, though we expect that there will be other configurations too. The image also shows that the phone has a Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood.
There are also some images of the rear side of the phone on the internet which shows that the phone will feature four camera sensors inside a round shaped camera housing. On the right side, the phone has an LED flash. The display has a curved glass back and the design is almost identical to that of the OPPO Ace2 that was launched in April this year. Unfortunately, we don't know anything about camera specs for the time being. But hopefully, we will be getting more information on this phone in the near future. It is also important to mention that since the tweet was made by Realme UK, we expect the Realme Race will be launched in Europe and UK next year before it lands in other parts of the world.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ don't have much competition right now as they are the only two handsets right now with the latest Qualcomm (or Exynos) Snapdragon flagship chip inside. The LG G6 is probably its closest competitor yet, but the last-gen SD 821 chip makes the LG handset fall behind. However, that scene is about to change very soon as Xiaomi gets ready to launch their own flagship handsets next week in China, with the SD 835 inside. Rumors have been predicting the specs for the Chinese handset for a long time now, but some of it has just been confirmed by a leaked GeekBench test run result. Check the screenshot below and the specs over here to get a feel of things.
Unfortunately, there's currently no news regarding when Xiaomi is going to launch the mi 6 and the Mi 6 Plus outside China. Going by its track record though, it might be a few months before that happens. Nevertheless, what we have seen so far both in terms of specs and leaked pictures, do look very impressive. Hopefully, Xiaomi will be able to bring the two handsets in other countries myuch faster this time around.

The Mi Mix was truly a revolutionary smartphone in terms of design and the Mi Mix 2 is all set to take that design element even further in roughly ten days' time from now. Although the original Mi Mix was very unique in its design element, we cannot help but notice that according to the rumors and leaks, the Mi Mix 2 is starting to look a lot like the Galaxy S8+. If you are wondering where the resemblance is, consider the fact that it will possibly sport a 2960 x 1440 pixels resolution at 18.5:9 ratio on a 6.2-inch panel, exactly like the S8+.
In other specs, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and not the rumored SD 836. We are saying this because Qualcomm has not yet made any revelations regarding this rumored new chip and chances of them doing so in the span of the next 9 days are pretty slim!
Nevertheless, the Mi Mix 2 will be rocking a very impressive internal storage of 256GB and that much is all but certain. We expect at least 6GB of RAM and a dual rear camera setup as well, but we only know that there will be at least one 20-mp camera among those two. The rumored 4,400mAh battery also looks to be reliable info and that's probably the highest capacity battery ever used in a flagship smartphone from any company yet.

Xiamoi Redmi K series has been one of the most successful mid-range series. Redmi K20 was the first phone introduced by the company in the K product line. It was also the first one to feature to pop-up selfie camera. And now recently, a Weibo user submitted a post at Digital chat station that Redmi may launched its next smartphone Redmi K40 in the fourth quarter of this year and K40 Pro in the first quarter of the next year. According to his blog the successor the popular K30 will also feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 775 Soc as well.
Its predecessor Redmi K30 Ultra was powered with MediaTek's dimensity 1000+ processor. Redmi 30 series was launched in December 2019. The phone is already been certified via 3C which stamps on the leaks. Although, there isn't much information on specs at the 3C website. It did confirm, however, the 5G connectivity support.
Some of the specs has already been leaked and also confirmed officially including the phone's high-resolution display. The company manager Wang Teng, has revealed himself that the company will equip the new series with an OLED display panel. He further added that the Redmi K4 series will feature a higher refresh rate as compared to the old-generation smartphones. It is rumored that the phone will have up to 120Hz display refresh rate on both models. This detail was also confirmed by the company's CEO, Lei Jun.
Previous leaks suggest that the phone will be powered by a 4,500mAh battery and may support 33W fast charging. The series will feature quad-camera system at the rear side, that might be something similar to the existing Redmi K30 series.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is a great smartphone we can expect at the end of September 2020. The Xiaomi Mi 10T is an affordable alternative for budget-conscious users. The Mi 10T will be revealed on 30 September 2020. You can watch the event online on Xiaomi's official YouTube channel at 02:00 Beijing Time. Here are the global times so you know when to tune in:
West Coast USA: 05:00 (PDT)
East Coast USA: 08:00 (EDT)
UK: 13:00 (BST)
EU: 14:00 (CEST)
Now we have full specs leaks just a few days before the launch. He leaks confirmed details on the processor, battery, and major difference between regular and pro phones. According to the leaks, both phones feature a 6.67-inch LCD panel with full HD+ resolution. These smartphones come with a 20:9 ratio and an impressive 144Hz display refresh rate. Both phones will feature the same Snapdragon 865 processing chip. The phones are powered by a huge 5,000mAh battery which is sufficient enough to keep the phone functional all day.
Now, you might be asking if the processor, battery, and display size are the same, what's the difference. Essentially, the phones are different only in the photography area. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro comes with 108-megapixel as a primary camera with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel macro lens. The regular model has a 64-megapixel primary camera with the same specs for an ultra-wide and macro lens. The regular model comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, whereas the Pro model has 8GB RAM with 256GB internal storage.
When Xiaomi launched its flagship smartphone Mi 11 earlier this year, the company skipped the Pro variant which was used to be a part of the series from day one. The standard Xiaomi Mi 11 was released in China in December 2020 and internationally it went for sale in February 2021. So far, Xiaomi didn't say anything about the release date of the Pro model, but we have already been getting leaks on the price, specs, and release date.
While we are expecting the Xiaomi Mi 11 to be part of a series, there will be lite or ultra variants as well. We are waiting for that to be the case though, so for now, we have various rumors and leaks of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. A Weibo user has recently revealed that the Mi 11 Pro will be launched somewhere in mid-March. He also suggested that the flagship smartphone will be launched alongside the Mi 11 Pro Ultra. This is still a rumor but it aligns with another rumor that predicts the launch of the phone in March.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is said to retain the design of the Mi 11 but there will be some upgrades in the areas of photography and charging speed. The Mi 11 Pro will have a periscope telephoto lens and 120W fast charging technology that is similar to the technology on Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative edition. Further, the Mi 11 Pro is expected to feature a 6.8-inch quad curved display with a resolution of 3200x1400p.
The display will feature a 120Hz refresh rate and 480 touch sampling rate. Recently, a set of renders appeared online. The renders give us a look at the rear camera design of the Pro variant. Numerous reports suggest that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will feature a massive 4,700mAh battery and Xiaomi's blazing-fast 120W wired charging technology.
The Huawei P40 Pro just got better than the last year's P30 to the point where it is nothing but perfect. It takes the P series features to the next level in a big way. With a massive camera sensor, 90Hz display refresh rate, and updated internals, there is a lot to talk about the P40 Pro. The only cons here is the lack of Google services impacts it in such a negative way. Last year, the Huawei P30 Pro was one of the best camera phones that had ever seen. Its innovative zoom camera and impressive image quality are nothing but excellent.
Despite having everything perfect on the specs sheet the phone is having a problem among the masses due to its lack of Google apps. The hardware is more than perfect but is it enough to make up for its software deficiencies? The phone has a curved top and bottom edges that make swipe gestures so smooth. The aluminum sides help users to hold it in their hands effortlessly. The volume and home buttons are set on the right edge. The device is IP68-rated and will survive some water exposure.
The phone comes with an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G chipset. It's a decent system-on-a-chip with similar CPU power to the Snapdragon 855. The device seems reasonably fast thanks to the Kirin 990 5G and 8GB RAM. But it's not a gaming device due to less capable GPU. The phone comes with a 4,200mAh battery, 256GB storage, and 40W supercharging. You can charge Huawei P40 Pro from zero to 100% in just 74 minutes. This might not sound impressive, but it gets to 97% in just 60 minutes. The face unlock feature is pretty fast and uses infrared technology to help detect the user's face even in the dark.
The Top two flagships in the market is currently the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus with no doubt. Today, we gonna make a simple comparison between both devices with focusing on the main key features. So let's start...

LG brought out what will certainly be one of the most innovative products at the CES 2015, the curved LG G Flex2. It's more compact and more powerful than its predecessor, more curved and heals faster.
Starting off with the display, LG's homemade P-OLED tech has improved over the last year and the new screen has 1080p resolution (up from just 720p). Meanwhile the screen diagonal has shrunken a bit to the more manageable 5.5" (down from 6").
The screen is protected by an LG-developed glass cover that is said to be 20% more durable than Gorilla Glass 3. The back has a special self-healing coating LG marked a massive improvement by cutting the heal time from 3 minutes to just 10 seconds at room temperature. Check the video below to see it in live action.
Anyway, the LG G Flex2 will be the most powerful device for a while it will be the first to bring Snapdragon 810 in consumer hands and it only renders at 1080p (not QHD!). The phone will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop and 2GB RAM. For storage there's 16GB or 32GB, plus a microSD card.
Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Note5 (5th Generation Galaxy Note). In this one, Samsung has dropped plastic completely for a metal and glass follow-up to the Galaxy S6. The bezels around the 5.7" screen are narrower, the phablet itself is almost a millimeter thinner making it easier to hold in the hand.
The Super AMOLED screen has QHD resolution as before, but the way it interacts with the S Pen stylus has been revamped. The stylus is clickable, though that only serves to get it out of its sheath. Once you do, you can start immediately taking a note even when the screen is "off" (with AMOLED the distinction is small).
As of the Specs, the Galaxy Note5 has 4GB of RAM, up from 3GB on both the Note 4 and Galaxy S6. This gives apps more playroom, but the Exynos 7420 chipset will have an even bigger impact it's currently the fastest mobile chipset on the market, Samsung didn't even need to overclock it as new competition is yet to catch up.
Storage is based on the fast UFS 2.0 standard. While it outruns regular eMMC 5.0 storage, data hoarders have been locked out of expanding the memory the base model has 32GB, you can upgrade to 64GB and that's it. No microSD slot, no 128GB option.
The camera is a 16MP sensor behind a wide f/1.9 aperture, plus optical image stabilization and auto real-time HDR. It can record 2160p video or livestream 1080p to YouTube. For selfies you get a 5MP sensor and an f/1.9 aperture. Samsung has updated the audio department with Ultra High Quality Audio, which promises "richer" sound. This feature will work over Bluetooth with new compatible Level On headphones.
The Galaxy Note5 checks wireless all boxes, but a highlight is Samsung Pay, which works over NFC or MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission). Pay will launch in the US in September so it will be ready when Note5 arrive in users' hands. Much like the storage, the battery has been sealed off. What's more the capacity dropped to 3,000mAh. Samsung is counting on Fast Charging both wired and wireless!
The Samsung Galaxy Note5 will be available for pre-order today, coming in Black Sapphire, White Pearl, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium. It will be available in the US on August 21st, with pre-orders starting today. You can go for a hands-on as soon as tomorrow in 7,000 locations across the US. Pricing will be announced by the carriers.

Nokia 5.4 is the latest upcoming smartphone to be launched and just after the phone was seen on the US FCC website, its specs surfaced online. According to the leaks, the smartphone is going to feature an HD+ display and will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processing chip.

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 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 has announced the latest member of their Desire family. The new HTC Desire 820 is the successor to the popular Desire 816 and is the second HTC phone to have a 64-bit processor.
The Desire 820 is the first phone to run on the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939), which has an octa-core CPU with eight Cortex-A53 cores, four of them clocked at 1.5GHz and four at 1.0GHz, along with Adreno 405 GPU. The SoC is based on the 64-bit architecture and HTC will update the phone to Android L, which is designed to take advantage of 64-bit processing.
The Desire 820 also has a 5.5-inch, 1280x720px display, 13 megapixel rear camera, 8 megapixel front camera, and BoomSound speakers. The phone will offer Cat 4 LTE connectivity.
The HTC One M8 is now six months old. But HTC is certainly developing a successor to the M8, which may or may not be called The "One M9" or may be the "One M+"... Who knows!
Of course, HTC hasn't confirmed anything about this, but we heard that an M9, and even an M9 Prime could be released in early 2015. Until and if that happens, allow us to introduce you to a new as opposed to the old ones HTC M9 concept design that might not be too different from a real HTC-made device.
This new HTC M9 concept proposes a 7mm-thin body made with aluminum and titanium. The imaginary handset is obviously a high-end one that brings improvements over HTC's current flagship. Its display should be a 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) sapphire crystal one. Other features: BoomSound+ speakers, 5.1 MP front-facing camera, 12 MP Duo rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, Qualcomm's new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3500 mAh battery. Storage space varies from 32 GB to 128 GB.
HTC has announced the Butterfly 2 for the Asian markets. The phone was previously launched on KDDI in Japan as the J Butterfly but will now be available in other Asian markets, including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
The HTC Butterfly 2 has a 5.0-inch, Full HD display, Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 16/32GB storage space, microSD card slot, HTC Duo Camera with 13 megapixel main sensor with f/2.0, 28mm lens and additional depth sensor on the back, 1080p video recording, 5 megapixel front camera, water and dust resistant body, 2700mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Butterfly 2 also has HTC's BoomSound speakers. On top of that, HTC has collaborated with Harman Kardon to come up with the LiveStage Signal Processing Technology. The device will be go on sale on September,2nd.
HTC One M8 was a huge success for the Taiwanese manufacturer this year, the firm is already working on its 2015 flagship which is codenamed "M9" but this name will changed before the device hit the markets.
Alleged specs of the HTC One M9 smartphone made the rounds on Chinese social media. The high-end handset will likely debut in the first quarter of next year with the model number M9.
HTC One M9 is tipped to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3GB RAM. The display of the device is a 5.5" QHD unit. A 16MP camera with optical image stabilization, 3,500mAh battery, and stereo speakers with Bose tech round up the leaked specs.
The specs you see above appear legitimate for a flagship smartphone, though we advise you to take a pinch of salt when you read through them. Quite frankly, we will be surprised if the Taiwanese manufacturer's next flagship doesn't ship with 64-bit Snapdragon 810 silicon.
Next year's Upcoming flagship HTC One M9 codenamed "Hima" Specifications appeared on AnTuTu benchmark. A screenshot from AnTuTu Android App shows HTC Hima's claimed specs. According to it, HTC will keep the 5" screen size for its next flagship instead of going bigger. The chipset will follow a more familiar path and move to a Snapdragon 810 an ARM-designed 64-bit octa-core processor paired with Qualcomm's Adreno 430 and a 3GB RAM will also be attached.
The camera department will be a massive upgrade, however, with a 20.7 MP camera catapulting HTC's flagship from the bottom of the range to the top. The selfie camera will match the 13MP camera of the HTC Desire Eye.
The HTC Hima will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop and Sense UI 7.0, but it may come after the MWC. Instead it's set to debut at its own event. It's not clear if this delay is deliberate or not.
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.
The Upcoming flagship, HTC One M9 (Hima) has leaked again, this time in more details. The phone is built around a 5" IPS display and packs 1080p resolution. At the back, the 20.7MP camera is confirmed and it will sport dual LED flash. For now, there's no information whether it'll record 4K video, but we will be surprised if it doesn't.
At the front, it will be backed by a 4MP UltraPixel camera, probably the same as the One (M8)'s. Contrary to previous rumors, the latest leak doesn't suggest a dual 20.7MP camera configuration at the back.
The HTC One (M9) draws processing power from a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 (MSM8994) chipset with a 2.0GHz quad-core Cortex-57 and a quad-core Cortex-A53 running at 1.5GHz. There's 3GB of fast DDR4 RAM and graphics are handled by the Adreno 430 GPU. HTC will offer the One (M9) in 32GB and 64GB flavors and the phone will run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Sense 7.0 out of the box.
Here's the Leaked Specs list:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 (2.0GHz x4) + (1.5GHz x4)
- 5" FHD Display
- 3GB DDR4 RAM
- 32GB or 64GB ROM
- Support VoLTE, Carrier Aggregation and LTE Category 6 up to 300Mbps for Download, 50Mbps for Upload

- 4MP UltraPixel Front Camera
- Bluetooth 4.1
- micro SD Card slot
- 2840mAh Battery
At the MWC 2015, HTC has just officially announced its 2015 flagship, HTC One M9, with a new refined design that features a Dual-tone Metal Unibody, scratch-resistant coating and sapphire glass on the camera lens.
HTC One M9 comes with refined design with less part count, dual anodization, and scratch-resistant coating and sapphire glass on the camera lens. While it looks a lot like the One (M8), the new One M9 design is more minimalistic and the smartphone is lighter and smaller. It has a single-part front bezel, new placement for the Power/Lock key, an improved volume rocker, and brand new color options.
HTC One M9 packs a 5" 1080p display the same unit from One (M8) Super LCD3 with minor improvements on the technology and color rendering. The highlight of the front are the traditional BoomSound stereo speakers, now improved further by 5.1 Dolby surround Sound.
The One M9 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 platform - an octa-core 64-bit processor with four Cortex-A57 cores at 2.0GHz and four Cortex-A53 working at 1.5GHz. The new Adreno 430 is responsible for the graphics, while the 3GB RAM will help with the multi-tasking.
HTC One M9 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop enhanced with the new HTC Sense 7 UI. HTC Blinkfeed is a major part of the new Sense and now content from the aggregator will be displayed on the lockscreen as well. The updated service also uses location specific suggestions, thanks to a new partnership with Yelp, and will be able to gives you various tips for nearby restaurants.
The entire concept of HTC Sense has changed and now the launcher supports themes, which will be able to change its looks completely backgrounds, colors, icons, even the keyboard. There will be a theme generator, which will support automatic theme generation by inputting just a single image.
Finally, HTC has just officially announced the One M9+ at a press event held in Beijing, China.
The HTC One M9+ features a 5.2" QHD 1440 x2560 pixels display and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7 UI. It packs 32GB built-in storage and has a 20MP rear f/2.2 camera with secondary lens on the top for depth-sensing. For the selfie enthusiasts, there is a UltraPixel camera in the front. One major highlight of this smartphone is the 2.2GHz MediaTek MT6795T chipset armed with an octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM.
HTC BoomSound speakers with Dolby Surround sound support come on the front along with a home button which integrates a fingerprint sensor with support for the AliPay payment system in China. There is no clarity on whether the One M9+ if sold outside China will bear fingerprint sensor. The device also offers a 2840 mAh battery to power the smartphone. HTC will introduce the phone in three color options Gunmetal grey, Amber Gold, and Silver Gold color options.
HTC also announced that the HTC One M9+ won't be launching North America or Europe and it's currently exclusive to China users.
"The One M9+ is not currently planned to be released in North America or Europe, where we believe our flagship HTC One M9 is the best choice for blazing fast performance, incredible sound, and network compatibility across the broadest range of operators," - HTC official
Samsung has officially release its largest tablet ever to the worldwide market and it's called the "Galaxy View". The Samsung Galaxy View packs a huge 18.4" TFT LCD display of 1080p resolution resulting in a pixel density of 123ppi.
The Galaxy View comes with a handle for an easy carry, as it weighs 2.65kg and measures 275.8 x 451.8 x 11.9mm. Rubber feet at the bottom keep it from sliding about and the back features a 2-way stand. Samsung says the tablet's 5700mAh can provide up to 8 hours of continuous video playback, although it's pretty clear you won't be going away from a power socket often.

We all knew that it was coming, thanks to the rumors and now it's official. The Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016) is going on pre-order in South Korea on October 1, with a price tag of 649,000 won ($580). The smartphone will be exclusive to SK telecom for now. We are not sure whether the smartphone will be sold off-shores as well, but there is a chance that it might be in at least certain specific markets. Check out the specs below to get a closer look at what Samsung is offering with the new incarnation of the A8.
· 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Full High Definition display
· Always On display
· Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core 14nm processor
· 3GB RAM
· 32GB of internal storage
· 16-megapixel rear camera
· 8-megapixel front camera
· Fingerprint scanner embedded in the Home button
· 3,300mAh battery
· Samsung Grace UX on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
· Samsung Pay enabled
To be frank, the new A8 (2016) just seems like a tweaked Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, minus the Quad High Definition Edge display (ironically). There is no doubt that the Exynos 7420 is still quite a capable chip, but considering that it's already more than a year old, the A8 (2016) may not be the best option for the price, except for the strictest of Samsung fans of course.

@OnLeaks just revealed a whole lot of details about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 just before the handset is about to be revealed tomorrow on August 2 by Samsung officially at the Unpacked Event. The sheer amount of details that we see in the leaked press renders show us everything that there is to be seen. In fact, the renders are also available in three colors that the Note 7 will be available in.
We even get a look at the next Gear VR headset by Samsung that's about to come out with the Note 7, complete with USB Type-C connectivity. In case you not aware of the specifications of the device yet, here's a final look before it comes out officially.
Dimensions: 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9 mm
Display: Dual Edge 1440p QHD 5.7-inch Super AMOLED panel
Front/rear camera: 5-mp/12mp
Security: Retina scanner/Fingerprint scanner
SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 821/Exynos 8893
Price: EUR 850/USD 950 (as per this particular leak)
Even though there isn't anything left to the imagination unfortunately, we would really like to see how many of these "rumored" specs turn out to be wrong, if any at all!

In the past few years, we have seen Samsung catering to the Chinese market with a lot of attention. They have had recent exclusive releases like the Galaxy A9 Pro and in the past, the very A-series was launched in China first. Samsung just launched another smartphone that will be exclusive to China, at least for now. This is the brawnier brother of the J3 2016 that the OEM released earlier, expectedly named, J3 Pro.
The J3 Pro will feature Samsung's Super AMOLED panel, albeit at 720p resolution on its 5-inch screen. Samsung is powering the device with the dated Snapdragon 410 SoC and 2GB of RAM. There will be only a 16 gig variant, but with expandable memory up to 128GB via SD card. The smartphone will support dual SIM and unfortunately, it will run on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 out of the box. There will be an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel selfie cam. To power all this, Samsung has endowed the J3 Pro with a healthy 2,650 mAh battery.
All in all, we think that Samsung will have a hard time finding a good market for the J3 Pro in China, which is the home to the kings of budget smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi and OnePlus.

As per a recently released report, the Galaxy Note 6 will launched this year in August. In order to stay in the market and move ahead of its competitor Samsung will be releasing this device with some power packed features. Let's take a look.
- 4K display - Samsung is fully aiming towards making the Galaxy Note 6 its first device with 4K display. Apple is planning to upgrade the display resolution of the iPhone series in 2016 and that would result in Quad HD resolution in the bigger variant of the iPhone 7. Samsung need 4K technology to make sure that they are ahead of the rivals.
- Curved screen - It is quite possible that the Korean tech giant will produce both flat and curved screen variants of the Galaxy Note 6.
- Design - The body will be fully made up of metal (aluminium alloy) with special attention to the design aspect.
- Standout features - The Galaxy Note 6 will come with its S-Pen stylus and a fingerprint sensor is also expected.
- New chips - Samsung has started mass production of 256GB UFS 2.0 memory chips to power the Galaxy Note 6. These chips will primarily be used for data storage.
- RAM memory - The Galaxy Note 6 will be backed by 6 GB RAM and the iPhone's 2GB RAM looks miniscule in front of this. Considering the higher screen resolution, gigantic RAM might just become necessity for this device.
- CPU - East Asian market will see the device with Exynos 8890 chipset, and the device for Western market will package a Snapdragon 820 chip.
- Camera - It will boast a dual-pixel camera system with 12-megapixels, powered by Super Optical Image Stabilization Plus (which features include a 5-axis OIS system).
The specifications for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 have been leaked and the news it pretty good.
Firstly, the 5.8-inch display will come with a slim RGB AMOLED display, which is likely to improve upon the PenTile-type display of the previous Galaxy Note models. Secondly, the dazzling 6 GB of RAM memory is sure to be able to handle any future Android OS upgrade and numerous resource-heavy apps running at the same time.
Whilst the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are garnering the most attention ahead of their unveiling, the Galaxy Note 6 has other people curious who've owned a Note before and cannot manage well without an S Pen and the S Pen range of compatible apps.
The latest Note is likely to also sport the Super OIS Plus 12-megapixel camera which is slated for other Samsung models like the S7 and S7 edge as well.
The Mobile World Congress 2016 in Spain from February 21 is going to set the stage for many interested handset releases, including the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge from Samsung. Last year, Samsung walked away with the "Best New Handset, Tablet or Device" award for the Galaxy S6 edge and it's possible they may just achieve the same this year.
Samsung upgraded its "A" series for the releases in 2016 and now they going for the economical "J" series. Right now the Galaxy J1 (2016) is available in the market, to be specific - in Dubai. We are also expecting that J5 (2016) and J7 (2016) will be released.
These new devices look quite promising, thanks to some kernel sources, unraveled by one a mobile enthusiast. The code was identified in the kernel sources of the Galaxy A9 and apparent name of a device, codenamed as "j7xlte".
This code also reveals many of the smartphone's features and specifications. The Galaxy J7 (2016) will feature a FullHD display, most likely a 5.5-inch one, going by previous GFXBench leak. Super AMOLED is nothing out of ordinary for this device , but it also quite easy to figure more details from the model number - ss_dsi_panel_S6E3FA3_AMS549JR01_FHD.
The new J7 will run on a Snapdragon 650 SoC (earlier named as the SD 618). Consumers can expect 3GB RAM, a 13MP the primary camera equipped with the Samsung S5K3L2XX sensor. The front snapper is supposedly a 5MP unit backed by Samsung S5K5E3YX sensor, 1.1µm pixels, coupled with a 23mm f/2.2 lens.
Note that there are signs of a fingerprint reader on the Galaxy J7 (2016), which is a significant boost to the device. Buyers can also expect a microSD card slot and a 4,300 mAh battery.
The SM-G935A had already been seen in the AnTuTu benchmarks, and it was the Snapdragon 820 powered version of the upcoming Galaxy S7. A few hours earlier however, a new report has come in about the SM-G930F, which is the S7 with the mysterious Exynos 8890 processor inside. Apparently, AnTuTu has leaked the specifications of the S7 with Exynos 8890 on Weibo, a very popular Chinese social networking website.
As expected, the specifications in the SM-G930F do not deviate much from that of the SM-G935A. The Exynos model will have the same 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, 12 megapixel Britecell camera sensor on the back, 5 megapixel selfie cam on the front and 64GB of internal storage (as made evident by AnTuTu on this particular model), that we saw with the SM-G935A.
The good news is that all versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 will come loaded with Android M 6.0 out of the box. If you are eager to know the AnTuTu benchmark scores then you will have to wait a little longer as the S7 is still in its testing phase. Nonetheless, we are pretty sure that we will see the scores on their list very soon.
Finally, Samsung announced the long-rumored long-waited Galaxy ALPHA. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is Now Official is Russia, it was released on a glitzy yachting event in Moscow. The Alpha is supposed to be revealed on an event this month to go on sale during mid-September to compete with the iPhone 6 on the markets.
The announcements was not very public, the original images from the event were taken down but we managed to get some photos. We also got a poster of the final official specifications of the this premium Metallic "Alpha" phone.
Samsung Galaxy ALPHA will pack Exynos 5 Octa chipset, 4.7" 720p display, 32GB of non-expandable memory, and Android 4.4.4 out of the box. A 12MP camera, 2.1 selfie front-camera, and 1,850 mAh battery are also tipped to be on board. All this laong with a full metal premium Quality body. Check the hands-on Photos below.

The ALPHA flagship packs a larger screen, however, a 4.7" Super AMOLED with 720p resolution. The phone's heart is an Exynos 5 Octa built up of four Cortex-A15 cores (1.8GHz) and four Cortex-A7 cores (1.3GHz). There's 2GB of RAM and 32GB of non-expandable storage.

This smartphone will launch in 150 countries during September. It will launch at $690 - €515 price tag.
Samsung has just officially launched the "Galaxy A" family and launched two Smartphones, Samsung Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3. These two Android smartphones is targeting young buyers with entry-level and mid-range specs, variety of colors, and decidedly premium all-metal unibody.
Samsung Galaxy A5 packs 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM.There's 16GB of built-in memory, which can be further expanded via microSD card slot.
The device's display is a 5" HD Super AMOLED unit 720p resolution. A 13MP main camera, 5MP front-facing unit, and full connectivity suite that includes LTE round up the highlights in its spec sheet. Samsung Galaxy A5 boots TouchWiz-ed Android 4.4 KitKat. Physical measures of the Samsung Galaxy A5 are 139.3 x 69.7 x 6.7mm, while its weight tips the scale at 123 grams. The handset is powered by a 2,300mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy A3 on the other hand packs 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and a gig of RAM. Onboard memory is 8GB, which can be further expanded via microSD card slot. The display of the Galaxy A3 is a 4.5" qHD Super AMOLED unit. The device's main camera is an 8MP unit, coupled with 5MP front-facing snapper. Full connectivity suite is also on board, headed by Cat4 LTE. Like its bigger brother, the A3 boots Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI.
Samsung is going to release a (2015 Edition) of its Original Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 that was released last year. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 (2015 Edition) will have model number SM-T533 and will pack a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset and running Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
We got the full Specs list of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 (2015 Edition) SM-T533 that was was spotted on the Bluetooth database and judging by the model number, the new Tab 4 10.1 should also be running on the Snapdragon 410 chipset.
There is only one more member from the Tab 4 lineup the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, which we bet would be getting a 64-bit upgrade as well.
Finally, Samsung Galaxy A8 is now official, the Korean giant has just revealed the device's specifications and photos. The handset is now listed on the Korean manufacturer's China website and we can finally say that the company's thinnest phone to date is a reality and relieve ourselves of the sea of information that has been bombarding the rumor mill.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 has a metal frame with a curvature very similar to that of the Galaxy S6, but the glass on the back has been replaced by aluminum, as is typical for the A-series. The handset has a profile of just 5.9mm and packs a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, yet still manages to keep things on the light side weighing in at 151 grams quite modest for a phablet.
Inside the A8, there is a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, with one cluster of Cortex-A53 cores working at 1.0 GHz and another ticking at 1.5 GHz. RAM is 2GB, onboard storage can be either 16GB or 32GB and there is also a microSD card slot. The memory expansion slot is shared with the second SIM slot so you can't get both dual-SIM and microSD at the same time, though.
In terms of connectivity the Samsung Galaxy A8 offers 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with Glonass and Beidou support, as well as NFC.
The camera setup consists of a 16MP main shooter, which, according to previous rumors is not identical to the one in the S6 and S6 edge and has a reduced pixel size of 1.0 µm to conserve space. It still has OIS and a bright f/1.9 aperture.
Another high-end feature present in the Galaxy A8 is a fingerprint reader, just like the flagship models. The unit is powered by a 3,050 mAh battery and Samsung promises 304 hours of standby time. As far as we currently know, color options include white, black and gold.
If the latest leaks and rumors are any indication, the Galaxy A4 is coming sooner than later. It is no secret that Samsung has been shaking up its smartphone business in the mid-range section by introducing a whole lot of new smartphones; namely the redesigned A and J series for 2016, along with the upcoming C-series.
Zauba is famous as a website that lists imports and exports related to India and we are pretty sure that the smartphone listed as SM-A430U is the rumored Galaxy A4. This conclusion was reached from the leaked listing after considering that the A5 (2016) is codenamed SM-A510. In case you need further convincing, consider that the A3 (2016) sports the model number SM-A310 as well. As per that leak, the A4 was going to be priced at around $478, but it wasn't to be so it seems.
According to Zauba, four additional units were also flown into India for testing more recently, and that allowed us to get more specifics about the A4. This latest leak suggests that the SM-A430U will sport a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display and interestingly enough, a lower price tag. Apparently, the Galaxy A4 will be sold with a price tag of around $356, instead of the aforementioned price of $478. Not that we mind the price cut, but it probably also means that the specs have been downgraded in some way. We will let you know more as soon as more information becomes available.

There have been quite a few leaks about the upcoming reincarnation of the Samsung Galaxy A5 and today, we have another one for you. This one has actually come from the Middle-East apparently and has revealed almost all there is to know about the A5 (2017). Let us now take a closer look at what's been revealed.
5.2-inch Full High Definition panel with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 on top
32GB internal storage with micro-SD card expansion slot
16-mp camera sensors at both the back and the front with f/1.9 aperture
Water resistant, Aluminum build, USB Type-C, Dual SIM, fingerprint sensor and 3D back cover glass
As far as the leaked images are concerned, the A5 (2017) looks suspiciously similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge. Although the 2.5D curved glass means that the display will have a curve to it, whether or not that curve will translate into an Edge display seen only on the flagships from Samsung so far, is something that remains to be seen. We will find out soon enough as the Galaxy A5 (2017) would be released either before Christmas or in Early January, 2017.

The next incarnation of the Samsung Galaxy A5 is on the verge of being released, and today, we have more information and even some leaked images for you. It seems that there will be four color variants of the A5 (2017); Gold, Pink Gold, Black and Blue. Some of the rumors are even suggesting that the Blue variant is actually going to be the Blue Coral color which debuted with the Note 7 and later made its way onto the S7 Edge. Take a good look at the renders yourself and tell us which one you will be getting.
We have already reported about similar specs earlier, this leak confirms those specs one more time before the A5 (2017) is launched officially. Note that although it is expected that the A5 (2017) will debut in China as always, it should make its way onto various other markets around the world soon after.
