According to a report recently published by the Korea Herald, Samsung is planning to introduce various improvements to the iris scanner on its next generation flagship device offering, particularly the Galaxy S9, which is rumored to make its debut a month from now.
Just about every mobile user within the last decade has been asking for a smartphone battery that can offer extended battery life. Could 2018 be the year in which we finally get a battery that can keep up with our increasingly handset dependent and data hungry lifestyles? This largely remains to be seen, but if it is Apple getting in on the action, that should be pretty exciting news in itself, right?
Earlier this week, leaker extraordinaire Evan Blass posted in Twitter images of what appears to be ads for a certain Huawei PCE Series device. There were four ads in all, and they seem to highlight the handset’s camera specs and imaging capabilities, with mentions of triple lens cameras on the rear side, 40 megapixel images, 5X hybrid zooming that takes full advantage of both optical and digital zoom in photographing far away subjects, and a 24 megapixel shooter on the front side.
Hardcore Android fans could see Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus make their debut sooner than anticipated. As indicated in a report recently published by VentureBeat, the South Korean phone maker’s 2018 flagship devices will be unveiled during next year’s Consumer Electronics Show, which is scheduled to kick of on January 11th in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada.
The concept of foldable smartphones is nothing new -- as a matter of fact, some of the world’s biggest phone makers, like Samsung and LG, have been reported to be exploring the idea as early as 2014 (Samsung even published a patent a year ago).
In a market research note written to subscribers, Wave7 Research says that Sprint apparently has plans to add programming from Hulu in its unlimited plans. Dealers have already been reportedly told to expect this new inclusion, with one subscription for each account and the value is said to be worth $7.99.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, noted analyst from KGI Securities (and considered by many as the foremost expert in predicting Apple trends), it is quite possible that the success of the iPhone X this year may lead to three new iPhone models in 2018 that will employ the same all screen design as the iPhone X.
According to a blog post recently published by ZeroFOX, it had found more than 500 fake accounts throughout various social media platforms (including popular ones like Facebook, Instagram, and even YouTube) that all offer iPhone X giveaway deals, but are actually scams. Most of these spam offers are designed for one thing -- to get consumers to supply their personal data.
According to BayStreet Research, it appears that T-Mobile is planning to officially unveil the Revvl Plus soon. This device will be positioned as an upgraded version of the Revvl, the midrange smartphone that the major US wireless carrier first introduced back in August earlier this year. As suggested by its name, the Revvl Plus will offer a much bigger display screen compared to the Revvl. Also, it will come with enhanced specs, and accordingly, feature a higher pricing -- about a hundred bucks more than the cost of the Revvl (which fetches for $150).
The new generation Pixel devices are widely expected to be officially introduced by Google this coming Wednesday, October 4th, and mobile tech enthusiasts are no doubt excited to see how the follow ups will improve upon last year’s models. Plenty has already been discussed with regards to leaked images that surfaced in the interwebs nearly a couple of weeks ago, and we will all find out in two days if those leaks were indeed true. Still, it is worth going through the persistent rumors.
