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.
Here is some piece of news that should interest those looking to purchase a new phablet that comes with a stylus -- LG showcased a new phablet offering called the LG Stylo 3 (outside the United States, the handset is called the LG Stylus 3) during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show being held in the city of Las Vegas in Nevada. The South Korean tech giant had actually already announced five new smartphone devices even before the CES 2017 officially started, and the Stylo 3 appears to be one of the more interesting handsets.
The brand new year has afforded the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices a chance at redemption after a somewhat epic failure in the last few months, and Samsung is making the most of the opportunity.
The biggest wireless carrier in America is going to brick its Galaxy Note 7 devices after all, but only after the busy holiday season.
