The smartphone market is a tough nut to crack. Despite its immense resources and history in the mobile sector, Microsoft tucked its tail between its legs with Windows Mobile 10 and its Lumia hardware. Even Andy Rubin, the father of Android, is finding out how hard it is to compete against the big guys with the Essential Phone. However, gaming hardware company Razer thinks that it might have just the right product to carve out a niche when it comes to smartphones. That device is the Razer Phone. Although Razer has teased the device during the past month, and specs for the device have leaked, the Razer Phone was officially unwrapped this afternoon. When it comes to specs, the Razer Phone includes... Read more...

HTC has been coy about its upcoming U11 Plus handset, only hinting about it in a Twitter post. Well, notorious leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as @OnLeaks on Twitter, did HTC one better by posting what looks to be an official press render of the U11 Plus, along with a YouTube video and some information about the phone's dimensions. This is presumed to be the first look at the finalized design. The U11 Plus bears a resemblance to Apple's iPhone 8 models. It is a premium handset with curved corners that measures 158.22 mm (L) x 74.2 mm (W) x 8.5mm-9.1mm (D). According to Hemmerstoffer, it is just a tad thinner at the bottom, hence the 8.5mm to 9.1mm measurement. It will also boast a 6-inch... Read more...
The wait is finally over; the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is finally here. Unfortunately for Samsung, nearly every detail about its latest flagship smartphone was leaked in the months leading up to today, but there is still plenty let to talk about with regards to this stellar new smartphone. We now have confirmation of all of the Galaxy Note 8’s specs, which are quite stout for a flagship Android device. As you may have already read, the Galaxy Note 8 features a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display with a WQHD+ resolution (2960×1440). For comparison, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ feature displays measuring 5.8 inches and 6.2 inches respectively. The edges of the display screen are less rounded... Read more...
Finnish company HMD Global is firmly entrenched in flagship smartphone territory with the release of its device: the Nokia 8. After the company acquired the rights to Nokia’s feature phone business, we’ve been waiting patiently to see what the company could do with high-end hardware. Luckily, there’s a lot to like. The most visible feature of the Nokia 8 is of course its display, which in this case measure 5.3 inches with a resolution of 2560x1440 (QHD). Unlike many of the recently introduced flagships that are making the rounds, however, the 7.3mm-inch Nokia 8 has rather large bezels at the top and bottom of the display. The large bezel area also means that the Nokia 8 retains a traditional... Read more...
Just a few days ago, notorious leaker Evan Blass (otherwise known by his Twitter handle, @evleaks) tweeted out official press renderings of Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Note 8 handset. At the time, he said that more details would be revealed soon. Making good on that promise, Blass has now revealed a bit more about the phablet, including the fact that it will ship with a 6.3-inch  Super AMOLED display.In our experience, Samsung's Super AMOLED panels are some of the best looking displays around. It is no surprise that the Galaxy Note 8 will wield one, though some may find the actual size a bit of a let down. Not that 6.3 inches is small by any stretch. However, it is not that much larger...

If you’ve noticed any of the reviews of the OnePlus 5 that were posted on the internet yesterday, a common theme that was presented was the device’s incredible speed. There’s no question that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is responsible for part of the performance perks, but many also attributed the up to 8GB of RAM for contributing to the lightning fast speeds of the OnePlus 5. However, XDA Developers has discovered another reason for the OnePlus 5’s excellent benchmark performance. Apparently, OnePlus is cheating by enabling functionality within the ROM to identify when a benchmark is running. According to the site, the ROM keeps a list of the package IDs of popular benchmarks, flagging them... Read more...
After months of teasing from OnePlus and leaks that have made the rounds on the internet, the OnePlus 5 has officially been revealed. Given that we’ve already seen the new smartphone from nearly every angle already, there’s no big “surprise” in store for us today — and the OnePlus still looks like an iPhone 7 Plus clone, at least from the back. With that being said, there are actually two different versions of the OnePlus 5 that will be available for sale. No matter which version you choose to purchase, you will receive a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, dual nanoSIM slots, a 3,300 mAh battery, and a dual camera system.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is still a few months away from its official debut, but rumors surrounding the upcoming flagship Android smartphone continue to swirl. The latest news from the rumor mill sheds some light onto the smartphone’s processor, which reportedly won’t be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Instead, the Galaxy Note 8 is said to be powered by a faster, unannounced processor from Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 836. Similar to last year’s Snapdragon 821, which was a higher-clocked variant of the Snapdragon 820, the Snapdragon 836 will reportedly increase maximum clock speeds from 2.45GHz to 2.6GHz. The Adreno 540 GPU is also said to get a boost in clock speeds to 740MHz (up from 710MHz). In... Read more...

Microsoft turned a lot heads late last year when it announced that Windows 10 would soon offer native support for ARM processors. More specifically, that support has only been extended to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon family of SoCs (System on Chip), which are typically reserved for smartphones and tablets.

Google I/O is in full swing right now, and there are a flurry of announcements to tackle. One rather intriguing one for those that follow all of the hoopla surrounding virtual reality technology is the announcement made by Google in conjunction with Qualcomm. The pair collaborated to develop a standalone Daydream VR headset that uses the Snapdragon 835 platform. We haven’t exactly heard much with regards to Daydream from Google’s partners since the project was first announced last year, with the only high-profile devices being Google’s own Pixel devices, the LG G6, Moto Z family and the ASUS ZenFone AR.
