It is safe to say that future Apple products will most likely see the use of OLEDs. Apple already introduced OLEDs to the iPhone X, so like we said, future iPhones and iPads and possibly even Mac computers might turn to the use of the display technology. Given the millions of devices Apple sells, that’s a lot of OLEDs they’ll be consuming.
We’ve been hearing for many years now that Samsung is developing a foldable smartphone. While we’ve yet to see the company come out with one yet, ZTE launched its foldable device just last month. The ZTE Axon M is a dual screen smartphone that’s exclusive to AT&T in the United States. According to a new report, there’s going to be an influx of new foldable smartphones from several manufacturers next […]
Just like Touch ID, it seems that Apple’s Face ID is testing pretty positive amongst reviewers. Sure, there might be some issues here and there, but we expect that Apple will improve upon it and fix it with software updates over time, but for the most part, it looks like Face ID is indeed working as advertised.
Based on the current trend, it seems that one of the popular design choices for smartphones these days is to create a phone with as little bezel as possible. However we imagine that in the future our phones could look a lot different, but could foldable phones be the next big thing in tech?
Oppo has been building smartphones with the selfie generation in mind which is why it has been calling some of them the “selfie expert.” It has launched another similarly branded smartphone today called the Oppo F3 Plus.

If you’re hoping to see new Oppo-made phones at MWC 2017, you might be disappointed to learn that Oppo does not have anything new to share with regards to new products. However the company will be announcing something that they are calling “5x” and it is related to smartphone camera technology.
The iPhone has seen considerable growth in China for the past few years. According to a new report from Counterpoint Research, it has actually been the top selling smartphone in the People’s Republic of China since 2012 but the latest data shows that Apple’s smartphone as now lost its top spot. The report mentions that the iPhone has been replaced as the country’s top selling smartphone by a local challenger.
Chinese manufacturers are increasingly focusing on the lucrative opportunities that the U.S. market offers them as they seek to expand globally. Xiaomi has made no secret of its intention to expand to the United States, LeEco has already done that in a big way, and now a new report suggests that Oppo is looking to do the same.
Huawei has seen considerable growth in its smartphone business over the past year so much so that a new report suggests that the company has now dethroned Samsung as the most profitable Android brand. However, one has to take into account the fact that Samsung was stung by the failure of the Galaxy Note 7 which would have otherwise brought in a lot of money for the company.
The smartphone market at the moment is saturated and with the arrival of more Chinese OEMs, customers are starting to realize that in order to get a good smartphone, they don’t necessarily have to fork out $600-$700 for one. Instead we’re seeing companies like OnePlus, Oppo, Xiaomi, and Huawei offer up competing handsets for much less.
In a world where selfies are becoming increasingly common, manufacturers certainly have to up their game. For example we’re seeing camera makers create cameras aimed at selfie lovers, or at the very least including features and functions that selfie lovers can take advantage of. Smartphone OEMs have also hopped on board by offering up better front-facing cameras.
