There is talk that the G6, the upcoming flagship device from LG, will be released on March 9th of this year in South Korea (per frequent leaker Evan Blass), and eventually reach American shores by April 7th -- well, at least according to a report published by Venture Beat, which cited planning materials it has acquired as the basis for this piece of news.
As hinted back in October of last year, Samsung is indeed looking to continue the Galaxy Note brand this year. As a matter of fact, D.J Koh, the company’s mobile chief has recently confirmed to CNET that a Galaxy Note 8 is coming store shelves in 2017.
As promised, Samsung has officially revealed the real causes of the overheating problems of its Galaxy Note 7 phablet. According to the South Korean phone maker, there were two separate issues directly attributable to the device’s battery, which led to the handset overheating and even catching fire.
Samsung may have been hoping that with the new year, it could be given a fresh start regarding its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets. But lest it forget, its Galaxy Note 7 troubles are not exactly over yet. And part of the blame is a certain number of mobile users who stubbornly still choose to hold on to their Galaxy Note 7 units.
Among mobile users based in the United States, perhaps the most popular smartphones of Samsung are those that belong to the company’s Galaxy S lineup of devices. But as expected of the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices, the South Korean phone maker has plenty more other series of handsets. Americans may have heard of the Galaxy A range or the Galaxy J range, but Samsung actually has other less well known brands.
According to a report published by Reuters, Samsung will be releasing the full results of its investigation into what caused its Galaxy Note 7 device to catch fire or even explode this coming January 23rd. The Reuters news report also stated that the phablet’s overheating problems are likely tied to battery issues, and not to any hardware or software aspect.
As reported by South Korea based tech website IT Times, LG is said to be planning to turn its next upcoming flagship device, the G6, into the first phablet in the whole world to feature a 5.7 inch QHD+ LCD display screen with an aspect ratio of 2:1.
For the first time ever, Xiaomi took the opportunity to showcase some of its smartphone devices at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show recently held in the Entertainment Capital of the World. By way of a press conference, the Chinese mobile giant debuted a couple of new handsets, but unfortunately, it appears that these new offerings will only be made available in the company’s native homeland, China.
Can Huawei successfully conquer the United States mobile market this year? It certainly thinks it can with the recent launch of its newest phablet offering, the Mate 9. The device comes with a rather formidable $600 price, and is the first smartphone in the world to be integrated with Alexa, the artificial intelligence (AI) digital assistant developed by Amazon.
