Together with the flagship Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact, Sony has just announced the new Xperia E3 at IFA 2014. It aims to sell the Xperia E3 with an affordable price tag, but without compromised any necessary features you will need in a smartphone.
It is no secret the star of Samsung's IFA 2014 show is the Galaxy Note 4, with many expectations hinging on the company's next S Pen-toting phablet. Good news for Sammy fans: it does not disappoint. The Galaxy Note 4 indeed delivers the promise of a top of the line device, the evolution of three generations worth of stylus-bearing smartphones.
Virtual Reality or VR is pretty much a gaming thing so it was quite surprising to learn that Samsung has decided to get its feet wet with the technology. And yet here is the Gear VR, the first fruit of the collaboration between Samsung and Oculus, and we take it for a spin to see just what Samsung has to offer for this rather young market.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 may not have been a surprise, but its Galaxy Note Edge sibling is, taking the S Pen equipped phablet and giving it a curved display that wraps around the right side of the phone. Revealed at Samsung Unpacked at IFA 2014 this week, the Note Edge trims the Note 4's 5.7-inch screen down to 5.6-inches - though keeps the Quad HD resolution - but tacks on a curved Super AMOLED piece that can be used as a shortcut bar and notification ticker.
Is a smartwatch even smarter when it can get online itself? Samsung believes so, hence the new Samsung Gear S, which we've been playing with at Samsung Unpacked at IFA 2014. Pairing a curved 2.2-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a 3G modem, the Tizen-toting wearable only plays nice with Samsung's Galaxy range, however.
The IFA 2014 is just around the corner and we’ve been seeing leaked images and hearing rumors left and right of new products to be unveiled. Sony is one of the many tech giants getting ready for Berlin and its Xperia Z3 has been highly anticipated.
Lenovo has been considerably expanding its presence in the smartphone market but its Android tablet lineup hasn't exactly left a mark yet. That, however, could soon be changing now that its Tab S8 is out. This tablet, the first from the company to bear an Intel processor, combines a decent set of specs with a price to beat.
Pictures of the new Sony ILCE-QX1 have leaked ahead of the reported official announcement tomorrow. If they are to be believed, the camera for smartphones will also now have the ability to support e-mount lenses. This would give serious mobile phone photographers the ability to take even better pictures without having a DSLR around.
Sony is getting ready to launch new devices at IFA 2014 in Berlin this week. Among those new devices will be the Xperia Z3 compact smartphone and specs and images of that device have leaked ahead of the official unveil. According to the leak, the device will have a 4.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and 319ppi.
There have been a lot of leaks of the coming Sony Xperia Z3 handset over the last few weeks. We have seen a leaked image showing the device and some of its siblings. We've also talked about the X3 TENAA certification images that hit the web late last month. This week another image of the Z3 has leaked and this time the image claims to show all the specifications of the device.
