Google has just released invitations for a press event happening before the end of this month, and mobile users could see the tech giant announce its latest Nexus handset and a few other new devices. Indeed, the company has already begun sending out invites to various media, basically enticing them to witness the unveiling of some new treats from Google in September 29th of this year.
It appears that Sony is making a rather odd change to its advice regarding the use of its Xperia line of waterproof mobile devices. Over the past few years, the Japanese phone maker has built quite a reputation for producing smartphones with high waterproof ratings. For instance, most of its recent Xperia smartphones have acquired an Ingress Protection rating of IP68 for waterproofing, which is the highest rating ever. But now, the company seems to be saying to users of its phones to refrain from using Xperia devices underwater.
Yep, the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are about to be unveiled. But if you are one of those who does not care much about smartphones that run on the iOS mobile operating system, perhaps you would be interested in going for Google’s Nexus 6 phablet (made in collaboration with Motorola), that is if you do not own one and have plans to purchase a unit for yourself, or for somebody else
Sony got quite a lot of media attention when it introduced three new Xperia devices (the Xperia Z5, the Xperia Z5 Compact, and the Xperia Z5 Premium) during this year’s IFA trade show held in Berlin, Germany. And although this trio of new smartphones are considered premium range handsets, it appears that Sony is actually looking to build devices with more affordable prices.
This week, the blog Android Police reported that there appears to be a design flaw in Samsung’s newest phablet, the Galaxy Note 5. According to Android Police, they discovered that owners of the handset could permanently damage the smartphone if they insert its S-Pen stylus into the device’s storage slot backwards.
Just barely a week since it was officially unveiled by Samsung, the Galaxy Note 5 is already starting to garner praise from certain circles. One of them is DisplayMate, which recently claimed that the Samsung phablet may have the best display screen of any smartphone the company has ever tested.
The recent Unpacked event saw Samsung officially introduce two new phablets -- the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+, as well as other new features. And if that is not good news enough, it appears that Samsung fans will have another reason to be giddy about because they can now pre-order the two new devices. Here is the rundown:
For diehard Android fans who feel like their Nexus devices are starting to get old -- here is some good news for you. It appears that Google is joining forces with not one but two Android original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in producing its next Nexus offerings. LG is working on a smaller device akin to the Nexus 5 (also by LG) released a couple of years ago, while Huawei is collaborating with Google in manufacturing a new replacement for the current Nexus 6 phablet (by Motorola).
Motorola has announced through Twitter that the Moto X Pure Edition, the phone maker’s latest flagship device for 2015, will arrive in the United States this coming September 3rd of this year. The American mobile manufacturer has since deleted its tweet, but not before several industry watchers have viewed it (here is a screenshot courtesy of Droid Life).
