The 4K HDR mobile screen is the first of its kind. To be clear, this is not the first 4K screen (that honor goes to the Xperia Z5 Premium). It is not the first HDR screen either (that was, briefly, the Note7). It's the combination of the two that is novel. HDR content, however, is still hard to come by unless you use the subscription-based video streaming services by Netflix or Amazon. Read all here:
"Steve Cistulli, President and General Manager for TCL Communication, sent out a tweet yesterday that included four seconds of video showing the QWERTY on the upcoming BlackBerry 'Mercury.' BlackBerry and TCL entered into a licensing agreement that calls forTCL to design, manufacture, promote, distribute, sell and support future BlackBerry models. BlackBerry is now focusing on software and services.
Last month, the TCL executive cited an old Remington typewriter that was apparently the first to offer a 'shift' key, in order to promote the Mercury's appearance at CES. We took that to mean that the new phone will have a game changing physical QWERTY keyboard. And now comes today's 4-second video teaser that shows a fabulous looking QWERTY keyboards with frets."

Samsung officially unveiled its new Galaxy A series smartphones for 2017, the Galaxy A3,Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A7. All three will be available in Russia beginning early January and will be expanded to global markets in the coming weeks.As far as pricing goes, Samsung hasn't announced anything related to the cost of these smartphones, but previous reports claim the Galaxy A5 (2017) will be available for $378, while the Galaxy A7 (2017) should hit the shelves for $424.

"Amidst all the clamor around its high-profile announcements at IFA (you know, the Moto Z Play, Hasselblad MotoMod, Yogas), Lenovo has also thrown in a few affordable mid-rangers. The K6 family (no "Vibe" this time) consists of three models, the plain Lenovo K6, K6 Power, and K6 Note, and they share a lot of the same specs. It all starts with the Snapdragon 430 chipset that powers all three, and that means an octa-core CPU with 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked up to 1.5GHz, and another 4 capped at 1.2GHz. The Lenovo K6 proper has 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of storage, the Power comes in 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB flavors, while on the K6 Note internal storage is set at 32GB, but RAM is either 3GB or 4GB. All models take microSD cards for storage expansion" Read all here:
