Just one week remains. This time next week we’re going to find out exactly what Samsung’s next flagship offers. It’s the phone of 2017 that millions of people are waiting for, especially since the Galaxy Note 7 was pulled from the market as fast as it arrived. A lot is riding on the Galaxy S8 as Samsung hopes it’ll regain the trust of consumers and have a global success on its hands.
Today, another leak occurred. It’s a set of two images showing the packaging Verizon will use for its model of the Galaxy S8. Because of the leak, we know the packaging Samsung will use in the United States for all carriers and retailers. Samsung goes for a streamline look with its packaging.
Huawei has pretty consistently struggled to make waves in the US smartphone market despite being one of the biggest manufacturers in the world. Part of that is due to the dominance of Apple and Samsung (and their respective marketing departments) and part is likely because of a rough stigma Huawei deals with as a Chinese company.
As part of an exclusive partnership between wireless carrier 3 and OnePlus, the carrier will become the first source within Denmark for consumers who want to get a OnePlus 3T. According to their announcement, the OnePlus 3T will be available through all 3 sales channels, including their 30 physical retail stores and through online ordering.
The upcoming LG G6 is the South Korean company’s return to simplicity after last year’s not-so-successful attempt at modularity with the G5. With a focus on just making a great phone, paired with a larger 18:9 display that covers almost the entire face of the device, the G6 looks to be one of the phones to beat for 2017. Now for a limited time, early adopters of the LG G6 will also score a Google Home smart speaker free with their order.
AT&T is adding a pair of new plans to its prepaid lineup, offering more value for budget-conscious customers. Well, one plan is new, at least; the other is actually just an upgrade of one of their previous GoPhone data plans.
Just a couple weeks back, Verizon re-introduced their unlimited plan. It was a pretty big deal that’s made all of the other carriers tweak and adapt their own unlimited plans to stay competitive, but it was also the first time in years that Verizon has offered unlimited data to all of its customers.
