Samsung releases a limited edition case for Galaxy Note 8

Samsung tries to keep the in-between of flagship phones interesting with this new fancy case for the Galaxy Note 8 model. Company has just announced that it will be releasing a number of limited edition cases for the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. Possibly an ”extremely small number of super duper limited edition” would be more fitting, since only 99 cases will be made. Each one of them will even be numbered – sounds like a treat for a collectioner with way too much money. Samsung says that a special theme will be applied to the owner’s Galaxy Note 8 upon putting the ...

Nokia 9 and Nokia 6 (2018) receive 3C certification, January launch possible

Nokia is going to release two phones soon; a 2018 version of this year’s Nokia 6 as well as a completely new (though probably not very original) Nokia 9. Both of these devices are now rumoured to just have received a 3C certification which, if true, means that they will be released soon. While release before 2018 is very unlikely, HMD Global is supposedly holding an event in China on January 18. This event might be a reveal date for both Nokia 9 and Nokia 6 (2018).The above is just a speculation, though, so whether it will or will not happen is debatable. All we can do is wait and ...

It is probably Facebook’s goal to compete with Snapchat and its very similiar ”World Lens” feature for young people’s attention. ...

Huawei has postponed the release of Honor 9 Lite; now it is to take place on December 21st, one week from now. The reason for delay is unknown. Media representatives chosen by Huawei have received special invitations to the 21st December event in form of both a formal letter as well as a pair of cardboard ”glasses” with a Korean slogan on them.
