LeTV looks to be a new player in high-end devices

It wasn’t too long ago when China-based brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus made their debut and sounded their challenge to the established order of smartphone manufacturers. These young Chinese companies were aggressive and were willing to sell devices that have the same or almost the same specs as the flagship and high-end devices Samsung, Apple, HTC or LG – and selling them at ridiculously low prices. It looks like we have another new player in LeTV.

OPPO R7 Weibo leak shows edge-to-edge goodness

When you think of what a big deal the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge is in terms of display technology, you begin to wonder what limits there are to what sort of screens we will be getting in the near future for mobile devices. The first answer to that question seems to be with the still unreleased OPPO R7. Leaks of the new flagship phone have been touting a bezel-less screen, and new leaks from Weibo confirm that.

Watch how OPPO does a phone stress test the professional way

Built like a tank. This is how O-fans describe the OPPO smartphones. The Chinese phone manufacturer was proud to release a video of a Smash and Grab Test, showing us how they do it inside the factory. Drop test? There really is a more scientific way to do it. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge drop test did by a Korean YouTuber, this test by OPPO gives us an idea not only how tough the phone is but also how the professional geeks are over at OPPO do their job.

OPPO rumored to be working on bezel-less device, leaked images

For the record, bezels are not such bad things, you know. They facilitate ergonomics of a device, making sure there are no “ghost touches” on your touchscreen display. Also, they act as support for your display, so that there is some material that protects the screen if you happen to drop your phone (which you will). That said, the larger the bezel, the uglier your device seems to become – that is why there is this seeming obsession with slimmer bezels. But OPPO seems to be of the opinion that it can do away with the bezel entirely.

OPPO brings out ColorOS 2.0.7i update, still KitKat flavors

If there’s any consolation for not having Lollipop on a flagship level phone these days, Chinese manufacturer OPPO seems to be saying that at the very least, they’ll give you lots of new features. Is that a consolation at all? At this point, users of the OPPO Find 7 will not have any choice but to accept the ColorOS 2.0.7i update – with lots of fixes, new features, but still distinctly and a bit disappointingly, Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

New phones get CM12 nightlies: the 2014 Moto X, Moto E, Oppo N3

Even as the corporate side of Cyanogen pushes to be profit-making and be picked up by some OEMs as the Android OS of choice for their devices, the ROM-making “CM Team” continues to put out CM12 – their Android Lollipop-flavored AOSP-based version of the CyanogenMod after-market Android software – for more and more devices out there. Today, we announce 3 more to get nightly builds – the new Moto X (2014), the Moto E, and the Oppo N3.

OPPO rumored to be working on a fast charging smartwatch

Smartwatches are relatively new. No matter how cool, sleek, classic, or luxurious a particular model looks, geeks will judge its performance and battery life. Right now, Android wear gadgets don't offer impressive battery life, at least, not yet. OPPO's smartwatch is still a rumor but the model is believed to have longer battery life thanks to the very small internal cells the manufacturer used.

OPPO’s ultra-slim R5 arrives for pre-order at Amazon UK

Those of you in the UK who are intrigued by the new OPPO R5 smartphone can now get a little hyped-up, like, right now. Amazon UK has finally made the ultra-thin handset, along with the OPPO VOOC Flash Charge Power Bank, available for pre-orders to the public, with deliveries set to begin February 20 of this year. Just with the ultra-slim form factor, you can tell a lot of people will be thinking about getting this phone.

Qualcomm enlists OEM support for Snapdragon 810

The growth of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip has not at all been smooth sailing – the run up of the new SoC has been plagued with performance and overheating issues. But Qualcomm has now enlisted the help of a number of major OEMs to give their stamp of approval for the new processor. In light of this, we expect consumers to still be wary, as Qualcomm has really not approached the issues head on.

OPPO U3 ready to hit the market with ‘rabbit’s tail’ technology

Yes, you read that one right — the most distinguishable part of the new OPPO U3 phablet is not its huge screen size or even its crisp sound, but a special casing with a ball of white fur on the rear cover that looks, well, like a rabbit’s tail (which is what OPPO calls it, actually). This unintentionally cute innovative tech is apparently meant to help users grip the U3 better, due to the phablet's size.
