The Samsung Galaxy S7’s release is approaching quickly and with that comes the leaks of several aspects of the device. GsmArena today has received images of both the front panel and camera module of the upcoming flagship. These images were snagged from the product line, most likely the production ready version, but a developer model based upon markings.
It’s only been a few months since the arrival of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on the market — and, more recently, the rugged S7 Active sibling as well — but while the rumor mill is in full swing regarding the ever-closer Galaxy Note 7, reports keep coming regarding next year’s flagship too…
LG has been anything but quiet about its upcoming V30 smartphone over the past few weeks, and although we know nearly everything about the upcoming handset, it still looks like one of this year’s more interesting flagship offerings. Thanks to a new hands-on photo that’s surfaced online, we now have a clear vision of how the finished product will look.
We’re looking forward to the full debut of the Samsung Galaxy S8 later this month, but ahead of that reveal, we’re still getting plenty of new information about the device. As we’ve seen in multiple leaks, and as Samsung has basically confirmed itself, the Galaxy S8 is going to come with a nearly bezel-less display. Apparently, that display will be marketed as “Infinity Display.”
Earlier this year at CES 2016, Lenovo officially announced their partnership with Google to bring Project Tango to a consumer ready device. Now we’re just days away from the official announcement, and infamous leakster Evan Blass has chimed in with some new details about the device…
Meizu is set to announce its first flagship smartphone of the year on July 27th, and we’ve already seen a bit of what it can do. According to Android Central, the Meizu Pro 7 will feature MediaTek’s first 10nm SoC, the Helio X30, along with a 5.2-inch 1080p display and two 12 MP cameras around back. The real highlight feature, however, is the secondary display beneath the cameras.
Sony has never had a strong presence in the Western smartphone market, but that doesn’t mean its phones aren’t worth your time. The Japanese company was one of the first to introduce water resistance on a smartphone, as well as a two-stage camera button (at least on the Android front), and now it’s the first and only manufacturer with a 4K phone.
These days, 1080p is still perfectly fine for the vast majority of users, and a lot of people can’t even tell the difference between 1080p and QHD on such a small screen anyway. So why is Sony cramming even more pixels into its latest superphone? Well, simply put, because it can.
There certainly is a lot happening in Samsung‘s hardware department. Following a general slowdown of the immense growth smartphones have enjoyed over the past lustrum in particular, OEMs are preparing for a new wave of next-generation devices.
Amid the numerous experimental projects the company is working on, however, we can expect that a more ‘safe’ Galaxy S8 will hit the market some time in the first half of 2017, and rumor has it that its display will move to a jaw-dropping 4K resolution (via KoreaHerald) …
