According to the rumors, the OnePlus 9 series is expected to be launched in March, with the company most likely to announce the launch date next week. The series is expected to conclude three phones this time - OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, and a third more affordable model that is rumored to be called the OnePlus 9R or OnePlus 9E. Spigen is a company that makes phone cases, has already listed three OnePlus phones on its official website, and is apparently called the new third member of the series OnePlus 9E.
The Spigen has listed all three models of the OnePlus 9 series almost two weeks ahead of their official release. The third model is listed as the OnePlus 9E and not the OnePlus 9R. There is no information on why Spigen decided to upload the pages for the phones so early and is based on rumors or there is no official communication with the company. The listing was first spotted by MySmartPrice.
The OnePlus 9E is rumored to be an affordable variant of the standard OnePlus with some slight changes in configurations. The phone might include the Snapdragon 690 Soc processing chip paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage. The smartphone is tipped to feature a 6.5-inch 90Hz display with an FHD+ resolution. Other OnePlus 9E specs include a 64-megapixel camera sensor and a large 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging.
The OnePlus 9 is expected to come with high-end specifications. OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 are reported to be powered by Snapdragon 888 chipset and a 120HZ display. While the standard OnePlus is tipped to support an FHD+ resolution, the Pro variant may get a higher resolution up to QHD+. Both devices will come with 65W fast charging, wireless charging, and reverse charging.
Samsung is preparing for a new Galaxy S6 variant, as the Korean giant used to with every new flagship, it will get an "Active" version with tougher build. Today, Samsung Galaxy S6 Active SM-G890A has been spotted on Samsung's official User agent profile website... this still only a rumor thought.
This rumor isn't really backed-up by much information and for now the sole thing that hints at the Galaxy S6 Active is the model number. The mystery device is branded as SM-G890A, which some people speculate is very similar to the model number of the AT&T version of the S56 Active, namely SM-G870A.
We know that the Galaxy Tab S3 is probably going to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress next month and now we have an idea about its specifications from a reliable source. GFXBench has given us info on unreleased handsets and tablets before and they have mostly been true. Going by that standard, what you see below is possibly going to be the specs that the Tab S3 will be sporting in Barcelona at the MWC 2017.
Display: 9.6-inch with 2,048×1536 pixel resolution
SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 clocked at 2.1GHz/1.6GHz with Adreno 530 GPU
Internal Storage 32GB (24GB available for the users)
Camera: 12-megapixel rear camera
Android OS: Nougat 7.0
OpenGL API: OpenGL ES 3.2
OpenCL API - GPU: Open CL 2.0
Samsung, along with the rest of the OEMs have clearly minimized the number of tablets which they release now, so it can be arguably assumed that they hav no plans to release a smaller version of the Tab S3 next month like it did with the Tab S2 in certain regions. This strategy may change in the future though. Check out the screenshot below to get detailed information on what was revealed.

After seeing it running on Android One, the upcoming Android 5.1 Lollipop has been spotted running on Google's Nexus 5. The LG-made Nexus 5 device running Android version 5.1 appeared on Geekbench. Google seems to be testing Android 5.1 on at it's Nexus line-up.
It's pretty clear that Android 5.1 will see a wider release, possibly starting with the Nexus smartphones and tablets. What's still a mystery is when to expect the updates to this version to start rolling out.
As Android 5.1 is already up and running on the Android One platform, it's probably only a matter of weeks before we see it on the Nexus line. As for any other devices, how fast they get it will depend on the companies that made them and how quickly they move.
