It’s been a while since we’ve seen a Sony smartphone on T-Mobile USA, but it appears the two companies are joining forces for Sony’s latest flagship. An Xperia Z has been leaked with T-Mobile branding on its back, suggesting a big announcement could be on its way.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch in the United Kindgom without a new eight-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, the Korean company has confirmed. It will instead be equipped with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor that will play nicely with the U.K.’s forthcoming 4G LTE networks.
Samsung has confirmed it will announce the much-anticipated Galaxy S IV at a public launch event in New York City’s Times Square on March 14, but until then, the details surrounding the handset’s design and specifications remain a mystery.
Recent reports have offered hints at what the new device may offer, and according to the latest, there will be two versions — one powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, and one powered by Samsung’s eight-core Exynos 5 Octa chip. But why do we need two?
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — Thanks to the original PadFone’s rather disappointing start, we thought the probability of seeing a successor at Mobile World Congress was slim at best. But we couldn’t be more wrong. Asus has just unveiled the PadFone Infinity, a 5-inch smartphone that transforms into a 10.1-inch tablet with the help of a clever docking station.
The device has some impressive specifications, including a 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, and a 13-megapixel camera. But do you really want a smartphone that transforms into a tablet? We went hands-on with the device to find out.
Archos has today unveiled a trio of new ‘Platinum’ tablets, with displays ranging in size from 8 inches to 11.6 inches. These are the most advanced tablets the French company has released to date, and it has clearly taken a leaf out of Apple’s book when it comes to design. Not only do they look a lot like the iPad from the front, they also have similar displays.
The 8-inch model offers a 1024×768 resolution, just like the iPad mini; while the 9.7-inch model has a very impressive 2048×1536 resolution, just like the third- and fourth-generation iPads with Retina display.
The Huawei Ascend P2 has already shown its face once ahead of its Mobile World Congress unveiling later this month, and now it’s been pictured out in the wild. The new pictures dismiss any doubts about the previous leaked press shot, which surfaced late last month.
If you live in the United Kingdom and you’re planning on picking up the Xperia Z, then you might want to get your order in as early as possible. Sony is giving those who pre-order before February 27 a free pair of its MDR-1R headphones, which usually sell for $299.99 (approx. £190).
Google is said to be preparing a second-generation Nexus 10 tablet for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The device will reportedly offer a quad-core processor and faster graphics, making it a significant improvement over its predecessor — which was only launched last November.
Despite announcing a number of new smartphones at CES just two weeks ago, Huawei has more handsets up its sleeve. In Germany today, the company announced the Ascend G615, another high-end smartphone with a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core processor, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
