Samsung officially launches 128GB and 256GB Galaxy S9 and S9+ in the US


Today Samsung has decided to bring the 128GB and 256GB Galaxy S9 and S9+ to the USA. Both iterations will become available to pre-order tomorrow, on May 1. They will be released on May 18, exclusively at Samsung.com.



We assume the company has surveyed the market and figured out there wouldn't be a lot of demand for these storage versions. Otherwise, selling them exclusively through its online store wouldn't make a lot of sense.

Samsung Galaxy A6 and A6+ launch with Infinity Display, Android Oreo


Today Samsung has decided to unveil the Galaxy A6 and A6+. The mid-range duo brings the company's signature bezel-starved Super AMOLED Infinity Display to a whole new price point, along with its 18.5:9 aspect ratio.



The Galaxy A6's display measures 5.6" diagonally, and has 720x1,480 resolution. The phone has a 16 MP f/1.7 rear shooter and a 16 MP f/1.9 selfie snapper with an LED flash of its own. The handset is powered by an octa-core 1.6 GHz CPU, aided by 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage, depending on which exact model you buy. In any case note that the device supports microSD expansion, with cards up to 256GB in size.

Xiaomi enters the gaming laptop market with GTX 1060 Mi Gaming Laptop


It seems Xiaomi is keen to produce every type of hardware you can think of, now adding a gaming laptop to its roster of devices.


The Mi Gaming Laptop is a 15.6-inch device with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 or i5 CPU, a 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD and either an Nvidia GTX 1060 or an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. The more capable i7/GTX1060 model comes with 16GB of RAM, while the i5/1050Ti units will have 8GB.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is now official: Snapdragon 845 and a dual camera setup


Finally, after a truckload of leaks and rumors the Mi Mix 2s is here in all its glory. It comes with a more powerful chipset and much more impressive dual-camera setup, but a design very similar to the Mi Mix 2.



The Mix 2s shaves just a millimeter vertically and horizontally to improve the screen-to-body ratio slightly, but that's hardly a difference you will spot in real life. Then again, the metal frame and ceramic body still look gorgeous.

The Sharp Aquos S3 is officially the most compact 6" phone


It was expected of Sharp to announce its Aquos S3 on March 28 but here we are, the phone went official a few days early.


Sharp says that the Aquos S3 is the most compact 6-inch smartphone in the world, measuring 148.2mm x 74.2mm - that's 3.5mm shorter and 1.2mm narrower than the 6-inch LG V30.

Oppo F7 comes with 25MP smart selfie camera


The Oppo F7 is official and it fills the gap between Oppo's entry level A1 and the flagship Oppo R15 and R15 Dream Mirror.

On the front the Oppo F7 packs in a 6.23-inch 2280x1080px LCD with a tall 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch housing the 25MP selfie camera, the earpiece and the sensors.


The front camera is the selling point of the self-styled "Selfie Expert" Oppo F7. It's a 25MP f/2.0 shooter and the presentation was very keen to point out all the software enhancements it brings.
