Yesterday, Samsung took the wraps off its new Exynos processor 8895 which has long been rumoured to be used in the International Galaxy S8 variants. The chipset is already under mass production since the Galaxy S8 might be unveiled on April 21st. The variant to be released in the USA will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, thnks to Qualcomm’s firm grasp on CDMA-related patents which make it rather compulsory for companies to release modified versions of their devices compatible with local bands, only solidifying Qualcomm’s monopoly in the USA.

Xiaomi Mi 5c has a new image leak which clearly shows the front and the back design of the phone. Based on these leaks, the phone will resemble the Xiaomi Mi 5 in terms of the design, at least from the front, though unlike the Xiaomi Mi 5, it will ship with metal on the back, instead of glass.
But don’t expect the Mi 5C to feature specs similar to those of the Mi 5s. The Mi 5c will be a lower-end alternative, and today an alleged spec sheet for it has been leaked in China. Continue reading “Xiaomi Mi 5C features an in-house SoC with 3GB RAM”

In fact, the first phones the Finnish company is expected to unveil after the Microsoft fiasco are most likely going to be showcased at Mobile World Congress 2017, in late February.

If you weren’t aware of Google’s Project Ara, it was a smartphone project that hoped to bring modular to the masses. But after years of development and delays, Google abandoned the project, but that has left a lot of longtime fans of the project (myself included, obviously) wondering about what the device could have been.
Google has shown off the Project Ara phone officially before, but concrete specs had never really been detailed. Today it seems that the unfinished phone’s specifications have been discovered by the team over at Phandroid who were also able to take quite a few pictures for what are likely the best look yet that most people have gotten at Google’s fabled modular handset.

Huawei is a name that a lot of users in US will know as either “that Chinese brand” or the maker of the Nexus 6P. But Huawei is a much bigger deal in Europe than many will realize, and as such, it should come as no surprise that they held an event in Munich today to announce the new Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro. It’s the company’s sleekest, most powerful phone to date, and the first to run the brand new Kirin 960 processor, which features a boatload of powerful cores and ARM’s new Mali-G71 GPU, alongside Huawei’s own i6 co-processor.
