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.
Smartphones with dual camera configurations are making waves in this year’s Consumer Electronic Show currently being held in the Entertainment Capital of the World. There was Huawei’s Honor 6X and Asus’ ZenFone 3 Zoom, which both made their debuts in CES 2017.
Huawei recently took the opportunity to debut the newest addition to its Honor lineup of midrange smartphone devices -- the Honor 6X. With a rather friendly price of $199.99 upfront, the Honor 6X certainly counts as one of the more affordable smartphone releases in the last few months. For those who found the previous model, the Honor 5X, a decent find, it is a sure bet that they will also appreciate the Honor 6X, which comes with enhancements but without too much added cost.
Here is some good news for iOS mobile users, especially those who already own the headphone jack-less iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and are looking to get hold of wireless earphones -- Apple’s AirPods are made available to order from the tech giant’s Online Store.
When Apple launched the jet black color for its iPhone 7 series, it introduced the market to a series of really black color smartphones. Shortly after the device was released, the color option quickly sold out -- proving that there is indeed a market interested in a shiny black phone. It did not take long for other smartphone manufacturers to follow suit and come up with their own model.
AT&T held a high profile event recently in order to formally introduce DirecTV Now, which will be going live on Wednesday November 30th with a price of $35 a month for access to 60 channels. The DirecTV Now service will be made available to view on a wide range of connected devices and platforms, most especially mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
The OnePlus 3 was only released as recently as June earlier this year, but OnePlus is already offering an upgraded version of its latest flagship device. Indeed, in many ways, the OnePlus 3T is a solid follow up to the OnePlus 3, and almost certainly an improved effort, with a new chip set (Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor), a bigger battery, and enhanced camera specifications.
HTC has joined forces with major US wireless carrier Sprint in releasing its newest high end smartphone offering, the Bolt. At a price of $599 (or $25 a month over a period of a couple of years), the HTC Bolt is actually being offered as a Sprint exclusive, and will be arriving in the carrier’s outlets starting this weekend.
Samsung has just announced that its latest wearable device offering, the Gear S3, will be hitting store shelves everywhere this coming November 18th. Just to be clear, both the LTE connected and Bluetooth only versions will be launching on that date. For those who want to purchase the smartwatch in advance, they can start preordering on November 6th.
As promised nearly a month ago, Lenovo has officially launched its newest phablet offering, the Phab 2 Pro. For those not familiar with this device, it has the distinction of being the first smartphone out in the market to come with support for Google’s Tango augmented reality tech. The handset comes with a price of $500.
