After a few months of speculation following the company’s acquisition of Nextbit, Razer has today officially launched its first smartphone, simply called the “Razer Phone.”
We told you across several exclusive reports last year about not-so-new Google Glass hardware that the Mountain View company has been privately testing within the Project Aura group and with external clients, but we were also the first to tell you that the device is internally known as “Enterprise Edition”.
Now, public-facing support pages we discovered on Google’s servers confirm the “Enterprise Edition” moniker as well as reveal regulatory and warranty information for the device…
Earlier today, Samsung took the wraps off of its new Gear Fit 2 Pro and Gear Sport wearables. In addition to these two announcements, Samsung also unveiled an updated version of its Gear IconX wireless earbuds. The big feature this time around? Access to a voice assistant that likely won’t do what you want it to.
The Moto Z2 Play just arrived at my doorstep, and it came with a couple of new Moto Mods. The original Z Play was celebrated for its excellent battery life and good performance for the price. A lot of people are worried about the smaller battery in the new model, but I’m hopeful that better software optimization will still offer similar performance.
Earlier in the year, we reviewed Acer’s Chromebook 11 C731 – a solid offering for around 0 that our Hayato Huseman said “makes a great budget laptop” for those looking for an inexpensive computer for note-taking, web-browsing, etc. Acer just announced an updated version of this with the C771, and like the C731 before it, this latest model is focused directly at customers in the education and commercial spaces.
A couple of months back, it was rumored that Samsung was going to launch a number of new official first party cases for its upcoming flagship smartphones. That list of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge accessories included a keyboard cover and the usual S View cover, as well as a ‘Glitter’ cover and a ‘Clear’ cover. If a recent leaked list is anything to go by, however, there could be many more to add to that list…
As much as we loved the “final” crop of Nexus smartphones, neither have aged super well. One of the biggest issues facing Nexus 6P owners has been early, unexpected battery shutdowns. The cause has been unclear, but Google and Huawei haven’t done much to fix it. Now, they’re facing the consequences of that.
Samsung has announced today to provide an update on the Note 7 debacle, saying that almost 85% of all recalled Galaxy Note 7 devices have now been replaced through its exchange program. You would think the Korean company would rather just pretend like nothing happened at this point, but I guess these numbers aren’t that bad — 85% is a good majority.
But it looks like that number is about to inch its way even higher, as Samsung now says that it plans to push out a software update that effectively cripples remaining Note 7 devices that the brave loyalists out there refuse to give up…
Motorola/Lenovo made an interesting move in 2016 by dropping the Moto X brand for the Moto Z, but as we’ve heard a few times now, there seems to be plans to bring back the X for 2017. Information on this new phone has been light, but today we’re getting new details and confirmation on some previous specs as well.
