Huawei will be working on a bezel-less phone

Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei, has stated that his company has plans of creating first in the world, 100% bezel-free smartphone (a phone which whole front side is covered by the display). Mr. Chengdong has not shared any more information on this most ambitious project. Xiaomi Mi Mix is, so far, closest to reaching this goal, and even its’ screen was covering ”only” 85% of the front panel. Would you want to see a completely bezel-free smartphone, or do you consider it a pointless endevour that isn’t really neccessary? ...

HTC 11 – what we know so far

HTC 11 is taking its sweet time. I remember writing about how it is rumoured to come out at the very beginning of 2017. Now it is almost April and the device still isn’t out. Unfortunately, we still do not have any solid lead on when will the device be released. An interview with Mr. Chang, president of smartphones and connected devices in HTC, suggests that the device will come out sometime after April, but that is all. Thankfully, what we do more or less know, though the reported and leaked info varies, is HTC 11’s specification. Here is what we ”know” so ...

Moto G5 Plus can now be pre-ordered on Amazon

Moto G5 Plus is said to be one of the best low-price phones around. For mere $230 it will offer an excelent 12mpx camera, 5.2′ FHD screen, 3000mAh battery, Snapdragon 625 CPU and more, all of it ran with the newest Android Nougat 7.0 OS. The phone has its disadvantages, like not being waterproof or the USB Type-C connection (it only has a classic microUSB port), but still, for this price range, the device’s specification is quite great. It gets ever better when you hear about how Amazon offers the device, as an Amazon Prime Exclusive, for a very low pre-order price of $185. If ...

First leaked picture of the Huawei Honor Note 9?

Huawei has promised us a good batch of new phones this year. One of them is the Honor Note 9 model, which first life picture ever has, supposedly, just leaked online. Other than its looks (if this really is the Note 9), we know very little about this model: it will supposedly have a dual camera, a substantially large 6.6′ display, HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC and, presumably, a 6GB of RAM. Some of these specifications, mainly a large size of the phone and dual cameras, are sort of confirmed by the picture; others we can only guess about.According to rumours, Honor Note 9 is set for release ...

Want to see people typing really fast? This Samsung Galaxy S8 leak has you covered

Oh yeah, the most interesting leak of the week! Samsung fans, rejoice, as now you can watch someone typing really quickly on Galaxy S8.…Ehm. Yeah. Watching the upcoming Galaxy S8 in action is always nice, but nine seconds of someone hitting the virtual keyboard over and over is not particulary informative. What the leak shows may or may not be a touchscreen test. If so, Galaxy S8 has to be applauded for working without a hitch.What do you think? Was this a pointless piece of news, or have you noticed something interesting about the device? Let me know. ...

Technology can save lives, or how a 4 years old asked Siri for help

A cool story that came up on BBC a few days ago. A four years old boy noticed that his mother has lost consciousness (and no, we do not know the cause). Scared but surprisingly prudential boy unlocked his mum’s phone by putting her finger against the screen. When Siri, an AI assistant housed in iPhone smartphones, asked what it can do for him, boy asked it for help. Soon after, an emergency service came in and saved the woman.Mind the details here – little boy did not tell Siri to ”call 999” or to ”contact an emergency service”. Small, scared boy probably ...

Galaxy Xcover 4 will appear in the U.S. eventually

For those of you who are waiting hard for the device – do not worry. It will be released in the United States eventually. Xcover 4 has already been cleared by the Federal Communications Commission, which means that the U.S. release process is ongoing. Xcover 3 was released there, but was only available through Amazon, so it is possible that things will be the same with Xcover 4.Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 specification:– 5′ screen, 720×1280p,– quad-core, 1.4GHz GPU,– 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory,– Android 7.0 Nougat OS,– 2800mAh battery,– MIL-STD ...

HTC One (M8) has received an update to Android 7.0 Nougat

It is somewhat odd to see a three-years old device to receive an update to the newest operating system, but here it is; HTC has just released an Android 7.0 Nougat for its old One (M8) smartphone. Year ago, the phone was updated to Android 6.0. Someone clearly wants to see this model hanging around for as long as possible, right? We do not know if HTC is finally letting the One (M8) go after this update or if the company will keep modernizing it – time will tell. ...

Manufacturer of the We-Vibe sextoy has agreed to pay a large compensation

Standard Innovation is the producer of We-Vibe sextoys and mobile applications. A few months ago, a class action suit has been brought in action against the company by their product users, who believed that the company is stealing their personal data. Standard Innovation has decided to settle for an agreement, due to which it is obliged to pay a fine to every We-Vibe user – mere hundred dollars to everyone who used the We-Vibe vibrator, and a whooping ten thousand dollars to everyone who also used the reportedly data-stealing We-Connect app. The company also announced that it will no ...

Wolf of the BF: Commando – another classic Capcom game hits Android

Known in the US simply as Commando (no relations to the Schwarzenegger movie), this one is a no brainer. There is you, a Rambo-esque soldier capable of killing hundreds of enemy pixels with a rifle and batch of grenades, and there are the enemies. You move up, they move down, you have to shoot them down or they will shoot you down. As was the case with other modernized Capcom games released lately, this one has been optimized for mobile devices (specifically, Android phones). Other – few – changes include adding a leaderboard, so that you can compare your e-penis to those of ...
