It’s a new year, and it definitely going to start off with some of the new and brilliant mobile phones that has been announced by the various companies including Asus, LG, Samsung, etc. Let’s start off the new year with some information on the new devices that you can get your hands on in the early 2017.
ZenFone AR will be the world’s first smartphone that is both Tango enabled and Daydream-ready. Tango is a set of sensors and computer-vision software by Google that enables smartphone augmented reality. Daydream is Google’s platform for high-quality, mobile virtual reality and supports Daydream VR apps. ZenFone 3 Zoom is built for photography and extended use with the world’s best smartphone camera and a large, 5000mAh battery. Perhaps this will be the first revolutionary phone for AR and VR gaming in the future!
The new ZenFone 3 Zoom is definitely built to fit photography enthusiasts and mobile gamers who needs a long lasting battery. the phone comes with a 5,000 mAH battery and is powered by Snapdragon 653 processor. The display screen is 5.5-inch, definitely big enough without the need of a magnifier!
LG has also announced five new mobile phones, the Stylo 3, A.K.A Stylus 3, and 4 of the latest K series phone (K10, K8, K4, and K3). The mid-range Stylus 3 comes with a 1.8mm diameter fiber-tip stylus, meant to provide the feed and feedback of an actual pen when writing on the screen. Other than just writing, stylus has good functions for some mobile games too instead of using your fingers. The 5.7 inch screen is pretty huge for mobile gamers as well. However the 3GB ram and octa-core processor and 2,300 mAH battery might be a little turned-off for mobile games.
Comparing the LG K10 with Stylus 3, Mobile gamers who decides on getting a LG phone would definitely want to choose the K10, since it holds a 32GB internal memory space as well as a slightly longer lasting battery at 2800 mAH. The battery is also removable so in case of places you can’t find a plug and charge at, you may want to bring along extra battery just in case.
The LG series came off this year with a little disadvantage in the gaming field. We wouldn’t really recommend the new LG series to mobile gamers, however the battery is removable so, maybe you can pack more batteries if you are going off the radar.
Although there were rumors of the Galaxy S8, no official release was announced. Instead they have pushed in the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7.
The new phones easily pick off the series released by LG. With a 32GB memory space, 16MP camera and a 3600mAH battery, The A7 device is definitely coming out with a major numbers, however these new phones are definitely not going to be the last phones that is coming out this year. We definitely look forward to the Galaxy S8 that might be paired with the latest Snapdragon 835 chip bringing mobile devices to the next level.
Other than the mobile phones, Samsung has also announced some QLED TVs. QLED is an improvement upon Samsung’s quantum dot technology for its LED TVs. The 75-inch Q8C QLED TV features a 100% color volume that’s sure to please consumers.
Although there aren’t information on their upcoming new phones, Huawei has put the previously honor 6X that was only available in china to be on global release. There will also be upcoming flash sales on their website for a reduced price of $200. Definitely a great deal if you plan on saving money on mobile phones.
With just $200-250, you can get a mobile device with 32Gb internal memory space and 4GM ram worth as well as a dual back-camera boasting at 12MP+2MP and a 3340mAH battery, what more can you ask for with that price range.
So which phone do you have your eyes on?
