And so to this year’s Google Pixels, now with ‘2’ in the name, still with the two sizes (regular and XL), with pumped up internals and stereo speakers but sadly missing a standard headphone jack. Google has put all its expertise in machine learning and image processing into these phones, making them a fascinating choice for the best in phone imaging, but arguably unremarkable otherwise.
Thanks to the excellent budget smartphones it has been launching consistently in India, Xiaomi has been dominating the smartphone market in the country. This is despite the marketing blitz from the likes of Oppo and Vivo who have plastered their ads in almost every nook and cranny of the country.
The thing about the Galaxy Note 8 is that it’s not ‘just’ a smartphone. It’s that and a stylus-centric tablet and a pocket computer, all in one. Even though there are annoyances, there’s no escaping the raw power and flexibility of the Note 8. It’s beautiful, it’s immaculately built, and it packs enormous productivity and performance punches.
The launch of the iPhone X last night has got everyone talking. Can any Android smartphone actually take on Apple’s most expensive $999 iPhone? Well, if there is any company that can compete against the iPhone X, it’s Samsung. And the company has not one but three different devices to compete against Apple’s best offering.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has already broken all pre-order records for a Note device in the US and will be making its way to the country’s retail stores from today. After the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 last year and the excellent Galaxy S8 and S8+ from earlier this year, the Note 8 is Samsung’s answer to the iPhone X and other bezel-less phones set to invade the market in the next few weeks.
After months of hype and leak, Samsung today unveiled the Galaxy Note 8 at its Unpacked event in New York. The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung’s response to the likes of the Pixel XL 2, the iPhone 8, and represents the company’s best device in terms of pure technology.
After months of testing, Google today released the final build of Android 8.0 Oreo for its Pixel and compatible Nexus devices. Android Oreo should also make its way to other popular Android devices before the end of this year. Like with every major release of Android, Google has highlighted the key features in Android 8.0 in its announcement post. However, there’s more in Android Oreo that what meets the eye.
The final release of Android 8.0 Oreo is finally here after multiple Developer Preview releases from Google over the last few months. At first glance, it might seem like that Android Oreo only comes with a handful of major new features but that is not the case. Dig deeper and you will see that the OS comes with plenty of new features that are worth trying.
The Nokia 6 is the current* spearhead of the brand’s return to the smartphone world in 2017 and follows several years of being locked out, following the Microsoft buyout of its Devices division in 2013. It’s still Nokia in terms of logo and branding, it’s still designed in Finland, it’s still made like a tank, but the actual firm behind it is HMD Global and all the manufacturing is in China. So take the ‘Nokia’ branding with just a pinch of salt.
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 has already leaked in press renders this week and now the detailed specs of the device have also been leaked online. Coming from the ever reliable @evleaks, the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 6.3-inch QHD+ Infinity Display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960.
