Oppo has been teasing us with the launch of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the N3, for a while now, and earlier today took to Twitter to announce and confirm the suspected date for the handset’s unveiling as Friday, October 29.
HTC took to Twitter earlier today to tease its upcoming ‘Double Exposure’ event, which is scheduled to take place this Wednesday, October 8. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly what the company is planning to unveil at its exclusive conference, but if we had to hazard a guess we’d say either the much-anticipated Desire Eye or its upcoming GoPro competitor.
Hit the break below to view the teaser.
Yesterday, we reported that Virgin Mobile would be one the first carriers in the United States to offer LG’s latest budget-friendly smartphone, the Tribute, and now you can order the handset from the operator’s website for just $79.99 on a prepaid plan.
Although Motorola’s latest smartphone, the Moto X, has been available from AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon for the past three weeks, U.S. Cellular has only just announced that it too is selling the handset.
LG is the latest company to venture into the rapidly growing budget-friendly smartphone market with its brand new handset, the F60. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not detailed the exact price of the device, but it did state that it will offer LTE connectivity for a very ‘reasonable price’.
Last month, Sony introduced us to its Xperia M2 Aqua — a water and dust-proof version of its older brethren, the Xperia M2. At the time of the announcement, Sony stated that the device would be an ‘Asia exclusive’ and would not be making its way to North America. However, it now looks like that’s all about to change.
Samsung has today announced the Galaxy Grand Prime — the latest addition to its budget-friendly line up. The handset is set to launch in India this week off-contract for INR 15,499, which equates to approximately $250.
During an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit last night, two members of the OnePlus team confirmed that the Chinese company is already working on a scaled-down successor to its flagship smartphone, the OnePlus One.
The past few months have been somewhat difficult for Sony, to say the least. Following a successful launch of not one, but three Xperia-branded smartphones in 2013, the Japanese company is now facing a serious loss in profit.
As a result, the firm has cut the amount of skilled workers it employs by 15% and adjusted operational strategies to primarily focus on the development of high-end smartphones, in order to seek financial gain rather than the global market share.
Amazon is inviting folks to a launch event on June 18th when it is expected the company will reveal their first smartphone device. As we have previously reported, Amazon is hoping to bring something unique to market by loading the device down with several sensors that will enable both 3D effects on the screen as well as the potential for new interactions based on face and head tracking of users. It has now been revealed that Amazon will be using OKAO Vision face sensing technology from Omron.
