Sony-Xperia-Z3.jpg

"Sony's just unveiled its brand new Z3 family of devices mere hours ago. But already the three new products have been listed by the Japanese company's various official online stores in Europe. TheXperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact are all now up for pre-order in the biggest markets in Europe, and thankfully that means we also get to find out what Sony's official pricing for them is.The flagship Xperia Z3 smartphone goes for €649 in Germany, €679 in France, and €699 in Italy and Spain. In the UK, it's £549. The smaller Xperia Z3 Compact costs €499 in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, and £429 in the UK. The Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact starts at €379 in Germany, France, and Spain (for the 16GB Wi-Fi model), and €399 in Italy. The same entry level SKU is priced at £329 in the UK. The tablet can also be had with 32GB of internal storage, in which case you'll need to pay €429 in Germany, France, and Spain, €449 in Italy, and £379 in the UK. Finally, there's also an LTE-capable model with 16GB of storage built-in. This is being offered for €479 in Germany and Spain, €499 in Italy, and £429 in the UK. For whatever reason, this particular SKU isn't up for pre-order in France just yet. Sony doesn't mention a specific shipping date for either of these devices, so it's still unclear when you should expect them at your doorstep. But if you want to be among the first people to own one, then you should pre-order. Just keep in mind that these prices probably represent the recommended values for each country, and third party retailers may go lower." via gsmarena.com

Sony Xperia M2 Aqua adds IP68 certification to M2 formula

Sony has made water-resistance a sort of trademark for the Xperia line but that's a feature usually reserved for the upper class of phones. The new Sony Xperia M2 Aqua brings the highest dust and water resistance IP rating found on a smartphone, IP68.That means the Xperia M2 Aqua is completely dust tight and can survive submersion beyond 1m depth indefinitely. This usually means up to around 3m but an IP58-certified Xperia Z2 recently survived a month and a half 10m under the ocean.
That aside the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua is virtually identical to the regular Xperia M2. It has a 4.8" qHD screen and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset (quad Cortex-A7 at 1.2GHz, Adreno 305, 1GB RAM). The battery life is also very promising with a 2,300mAh battery and the available Stamina Mode.The Xperia M2 Aqua has an 8MP / 1080p camera with an Exmor RS sensor, HDR and SteadyShot video stabilization. It supports livestreaming to Facebook and downloadable in-app features like Vine and Motiongraph. The phone has 8GB of built-in storage and a microSD card slot.The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua boast 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth and ANT+ for sports accessories. There's only a single-SIM version for now.
The Xperia M2 Aqua will launch straight with Android 4.4 KitKat, the regular M2 is already receiving its KitKat update.
The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua will be out this Autumn in Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific. The only info on pricing is that it will be "mid-range" (the regular M2 goes for around €180).

It has 32GB of storage and a 2,610mAh battery. Both Aquos Crystal smartphones sport incredibly thin bezels which means great screen to body size ratio with the 5.5" Aquos Crystal X measuring just 139 x 73 x 11mm, making it much smaller than the 5.5" LG G3 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm.

The phone is based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The Aquos Crystal has an even smaller frame - 131 x 67 x 10mm. Interestingly neither phone is water-resistant, a feature some Aquos smartphones have.
Both smartphones will launch in Japan but the Sharp Aquos Crystal will also be available for pre-order in the US on Sprint (owned by SoftBank) tomorrow with availability kicking-in on August 29.via gsmarena.com

ZTE unveils Nubia Z7, Z7 Max and Z7 mini

   

ZTE unveiled its Nubia Z7 flagships, app three of them. Meet the Nubia Z7, Z7 Max and Z7 mini. And before you get the wrong impression, the Z7 Max is actually a cut down version of the regular Z7 and the Z7 mini is taller than the regular Z7.The ZTE Nubia Z7 is aimed squarely at the LG G3 with a 5.5" QHD screen and a Snapdragon 801 chipset. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat skinned with Nubia UI 2.0 with a roomy 3GB of RAM. The device also has something called Display RAM, which can render static screen content without bothering the chipset in order to reduce battery draw. LG introduced a similar feature with the G2.And if that doesn’t paint enough of a target on the LG G3's back, the Nubia Z7 also has a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. The front camera has a 5MP sensor. Read more here:

Amazon unveils the Fire Phone with eye tracking tech

Building upon its wide expertise in the tablet space, Amazon has unveiled its first smartphone today. So yes, all those rumors were true after all. It's called the Amazon Fire Phone and its main selling points are bound to be Amazon's reach in terms of content services, as well as the unique 3D UI dubbed Dynamic Perspective. This much talked about feature changes what's depicted on the screen depending on where you are in relation to the phone. It accomplishes this by tracking your eyes with four specialized cameras that are located in the front corners of the handset. You can see it in action in this, rather quiet, video. Dynamic Perspective ties in nicely with tilt gestures that allow you to initiate actions by simply moving the phone. For example, you can tilt the device to scroll inside the browser, something eerily reminiscent of Samsung's Smart Scroll feature. And the same thing works inside ebooks, and even games. More here:

The UI is somewhat similar to the one on the new Galaxy S5. The phone will initially launch in Russia in the third quarter of this year, and will make its way to some of the other markets later. via gsmarena.com

Asus-Fonepad-8-570.jpg

Apart from innovative tablet/laptop hybrids, Asus had three good old-fashioned Android slates to unveil today at the Computex 2014 expo. These belong in the Asus Fonepad and MeMO Pad, and are all powered by Intel's new Atom line of mobile processors. This makes the Fonepad 8, and the MeMO Pad 7/8 all 64-bit Android 4.4 KitKat devices, so let's recap what each one offers.The Fonepad 8 seems to have the slowest, 1.8 GHz Atom Z3560 version of the quad-core processor, but it sports 3G connectivity, and Asus also managed to place an 8" 1280x800 IPS-LCD display inside, and surround it with just 5mm bezels. This makes the Fonepad 7 sport the best screen-to-body ratio amongst all 8" tablets out there, at 72.2% ratio. The tablet also flaunts dual stereo speakers, situated at the front.The MeMO Pad 7 also has two stereo speakers, but comes with a smaller display, and powered by a 64-bit Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core processor. Asus put a 5 MP camera on the rear of the 7-incher, and an HD 720p display in this one. Read more here:

LG G3 with 5.5 inch QHD display, laser AF camera goes official

The LG G3 features a 5.5" True HD-IPS+ LCD display with a QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. This results in the eye-watering (in a good sense) pixel density of 534 pixels per inch.

Inside the phone, there's a Snapdragon 801 (MSM8975AC) chipset with a 2.5GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor and Adreno 330 GPU. The version of the G3 with 16GB of internal memory sports 2GB of RAM, while the 32GB model has 3GB of RAM. Both versions will pack microSD card slots supporting up to 128GB cards. Read more here:
