The Launch Date And Price

The OnePlus 5 is reported to be likely launched this April. Its expected retail price has two variations: other reports say $400, while some say $500.

On the other hand, the LG G6 is expected to be unveiled this Feb. 26 at the Mobile World Congress event. This flagship phone is expected to cost around $600.

The Design

For the OnePlus 5, there is no information yet regarding what it will look like. As for the LG G6, it’s rumored to feature a body dimension of 148.8 x 2.3 x 8.3 mm. With its casing design, alleged photos showed two designs: a glossy finish, while the other is a matte finish.

The Display

On the other hand, the LG G6 is reported to have a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Its screen resolution is said to be 2560 x 1440 pixels.

The Platform

The OnePlus 5 is rumored to be packed with a Snapdragon 835 chipset. There was no mention as to what OS it will be running, but it would most likely be Android Nougat.

As for the LG G6, initial reports claimed that it was to have a Snapdragon 835 chip, but since Samsung has hogged the first batch of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chips for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, LG has decided to settle for the Snapdragon 821 chip – not the latest, but still high quality nonetheless. Regarding what operating system it will have, the device is said to run on Android Nougat.

The Internal Memory

The OnePlus is expected to have 6 GB of RAM. However, another source claims that it could be 8 GB instead. As for its internal memory, it is said to be 64 GB and will also have an expandable memory option of up to 256 GB.

On the other hand, the LG G6’s camera specs are unknown. However, there are rumors that it will have a dual-lens camera.

The Battery

OnePlus did say that it won’t be offering smaller handsets, because they want its phones to have a 3,500 to 4,200 mAh battery capacity. And according to rumors, the OnePlus 5 will have a 4,000 mAh battery. It is also said to have this “Dash Charge” feature.

Just like its internal memory and camera specs, little is known about the LG G6’s battery. The only rumor known regarding its battery spec is that it is removable.

The Verdict

Based on the information gathered, the OnePlus 5 seems to be better. With its pricing, the possible 6GB or 8GB RAM and a Snapdragon 835 chipset is enough to make it the better flagship phone.

Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P To Obtain Google Assistant; Intelligent Personal Aide's Features Itemized

#Nexus5X #Nexus6P – Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P To Obtain Google Assistant; Intelligent Personal Aide’s Features Itemized : The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are the only handsets that are equipped with Google Assistant.

This may also indicate that other features are just around the corner as well as major software update which commonly have more than one new feature and a few of bug fixes and developments.

Additionally, there are speculations that it will be the next major operating system update, and that it will be incorporated soon. This might basically mean that major updates for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are just around the corner. With that, it really seems the update that is really just around the corner for any of the supported Nexus and Pixel handsets is the Android 7.1.2 and this is just a small update that emphases on a bug fix.

Furthermore, Tech Times reported that way back in January when the beta version of the Google App was released. This was reportedly containing clues that indicated some of the notable features that Assistant could offer.

Moreover, it is not yet confirmed if the Google Assistant will really be rolled out to Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Also, it is not yet certain whether the above-mentioned features will be offered by the update, so for now, it is recommended for the device owners to treat this information with uncertainty.

#Xiaomi #XiaomiMi5c – New Leaks Suggest Xiaomi Mi 5c Will Be Equipped With Snapragon 625 Processor : The Xiaomi Mi 5c is one of those mobile devices which customers don´t know what to expect, given the fact that every single time this Chinese company put the “c” name on its smartphones it means that these handsets would be a cheaper version of the “s” model, which in this case it would be the MI 5s. In fact, this new mobile device has become one of the biggest mysteries in China, given the fact that there hasn’t too much regarding its specs features, making everyone believes that the possibilities of the Mi 5c to see the light were really short.

The Xiaomi 5c Will Sport A Flagship´s Processor

Nevertheless, the Xiaomi mobile device´s 3C certification in China was just spotted, and what it shows is something that customers would definitely love. Apparently, the Mi 5c will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which represents something out of this world considering that this kind of chipsets are the one that many of the greatest flagships will use this year.

Naturally, this means that customers in China will be able to get a mobile device boosted with this kind of processor in a really cheap price, which would make some foreign brands to have a really hard time to make a hit in the Chinese market. Of course, this incredible move from Xiaomi with the Mi 5c is the clearest exemplification of the way in which the Chinese smartphones are becoming major players in the smartphone business since these products offer the greatest specs and features at the most affordable price.

The Xiaomi Mi 5c Will Have A Great Design And Could Sport An Outstanding Battery

What´s also incredible about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5c is that this mobile device is that there some possibilities that it could wear a 3,200 Ah battery, which just as the Snapdragon 625 processor, it represents something outstanding for a handset that far from being a flagship, is just a cheaper version of the Mi 5s, which also had this battery. If you take a look to some of the new flagships that will compete in this year´s market, just a few has a better battery than this one.

Also, the Xiaomi 5c will sport a 12MP rear-facing camera, while the front-facing camera boasts 8MP, which is quite perfect for taking selfies, although we might have to wait which sensor the company uses in order to know who would be the quality of the images. Of course, this mobile device will be characterized for wearing a metal back as the Mi 5s, but without the brushed finish, which makes it so attractive that it wouldn’t be a surprise to some customers believes that this is a Xiaomi´s flagship.

Although it remains unknown when the Xiaomi Mi 5c will be released, is expected to come before the Chinese company release the Mi 6, which is going to be its flagship in a year where Xiaomi must make an incredible effort in order to maintain its position in the Chinese market, given the fact that this brand won’t take the global leap yet. Of course, this means that the Mi 5c might see the light at the Mobile World Congress this month.

iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 And Google Pixel 2: What Do They Have In Common?

#iPhone8 #GalaxyS8 #GooglePixel2 – iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 And Google Pixel 2: What Do They Have In Common? : Apple’s iPhone 8, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Google Pixel 2 are three of the most anticipated devices in 2017. But that is not the only thing they have in common.

All three flagship smartphones will be sporting an Organic Light Emitting Diodes or OLED display. This is according to DisplayMate president Dr. Rayond M. Soneira. DisplayMate is responsible for testing displays so that they will meet industry standards.

Of the three, Samsung will be the first to unveil its flagship phone. The Galaxy S8, therefore, will be the first in this prestigious group to show off its OLED display. Samsung may actually be considered the current leader in OLED displays as it has used it before on the Galaxy S7. It is also one of the main sources of the OLED tech. As a matter of fact, one rumor says Apple will be getting its OLED supply from the Korean conglomerate, its bitter rival. Samsung will probably do the same for the Pixel 2, according to BGR.

After the Galaxy S8’s expected April unveiling, Apple steps up to the plate in September with its 10th anniversary iPhone in the form of the iPhone 8 (or iPhone X according to some rumors). If it does come with an OLED screen, this will mark the first time that Apple will deviate from the usual LCD screens. One foreseeable problem with this is that the OLED screen will not come cheap for Apple, therefore, the iPhone 8’s price may be affected. Another thing to watch out for is how Apple will deal with its current and new display functions considering the huge difference between LCD and OLED displays.

Come October, Google will formally introduce the Pixel 2 which, like its predecessor, will have an OLED screen. Unlike the other two flagships, the Pixel 2 will likely have a flat OLED display.
