Check out the specs for the Moto Z2 Force, Motorola’s 2017 flagship.
Motorola’s 2017 flagship arrived today, and it’s succeeding not one but two devices from last year. We saw the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play in 2016. Those phones were all solid; however, consumers didn’t quite know how to differentiate them. Now Motorola is tweaking the Moto Z family to give each phone a unique identity. The Moto Z2 Force, which was just announced, gives a premium vibe inside and out.
Maybe you’ve been avoiding the HTC U11 because of its internal storage. Well, as of today there’s no excuse anymore. HTC just added a 128GB model of its 2017 flagship.
The launcher you see on the OnePlus 5 is now a standalone app.
Samsung continues to expand the unlocked devices they make available with the latest additions to their portfolio being the Galaxy J7 and the Galaxy J3. Both of these devices fall into the budget category although Samsung claims they offer “high performance” for their price point. The new unlocked variants will be available starting later this week on July 28th through Samsung.com, major retailers and “enterprise distributors.”
We’re nearing the arrival of Android O, and today Google released the final version of the developer preview.
A new processor will be powering the Google Pixel 2.
Samsung likes to make rugged variants of their flagship phones every year, and we’ve been itching to hear something about the Galaxy S8 Active since the original phone’s debut. It’s taken a few months, but there’s finally a solid leak showing off what appears to be a prototype of the phone, and it looks in line with what we’ve been expecting.
Way back in April word first got out that Motorola was planning to expand the availability of the Moto Z2 Force and some other phones by not making them Verizon exclusive devices. That direction seems to have panned out on the eve of the official announcement of the device according to Evan Blass who tweeted out over the weekend that all four major U.S. carriers will offer the Moto Z2 Force.
While Samsung’s incomplete Bixby virtual assistant may have its very own dedicated button of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ handsets, many owners would rather remap the button as a camera button instead. The alleged Bixby smart speaker has apparently been shelved, but that doesn’t mean that Samsung is giving up on its attempt to push its virtual assistant on its customers, with the latest rumor saying that the company is developing a set of Bixby-powered wireless earphones, ala Apple’s AirPods.
Not so long ago, ordering a handset from OnePlus was one of the most frustrating things you could experience, thanks to the invite system that you had to endure with the launch of its début smartphone, the OnePlus One. Thankfully, OnePlus has learned lessons with each new handset it has produced, so much so, that customers have been able to buy the 6GB/64GB OnePlus 5 and expect it to ship within hours of the order being confirmed. Starting today, the Midnight Black 8GB/128GB variant is also available with immediate shipping in the US.
