Samsung might bring two new Windows 10 tablets to CES 2017

December 29, 2016
It you have been missing Samsung’s Windows-powered tablets, hold on tight, for they might be in for a return. Knowledgeable sources claim that the Korean company will launch two new Windows tablets at CES in Las Vegas next week. Reportedly, one of the tablets will have a designated model number SM-W720, which sounds like an immediate successor to this year’s Galaxy TabPro S (SM-W700).

You may remember that the Galaxy TabPro S is a competitor to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 that runs Windows 10 on a beautiful 12-inch 1440p resolution screen and powerful hardware such as an Intel Core M processor …

Flyme 6 comes tomorrow with “Time Machine” feature

December 29, 2016

Meizu’s OS Flyme is known as simple and easy to work with. In order to keep being relevant and useful to everyone, the newest Flyme 6 will come out tomorrow with a big update.

Meizu already revealed the system update a month ago along with a list of devices that will get it. The most interesting feature is called “Time Machine” and will feature backup for contacts details you deleted two years ago. It looks a lot like Apple’s feature that has the same name and functions on OSX.

The Chinese company reveals that “Time Machine” will work and record current actions only if you turn it…

An S Pen for the Galaxy S8? How would you feel about that?

December 29, 2016
A couple of days ago, we heard the curious rumor that Samsung may add S Pen support for its flagship Galaxy S line with the introduction of the Galaxy S8, S8 edge, and a rumored S8 Plus. Now, the reason the proprietary stylus works on Note phones but doesn’t work on Galaxy S devices right now is due to the technology used — the Note phablets have a special Wacom digitizer underneath the display, which is separate from the touch digitizer. This allows the phone to distinguish from stylus touches and finger taps and do all that cool stuff like palm rejection, floating cursors, and so on.

Obviously, …

HTC Ocean Note is getting rid of the headphone jack

December 29, 2016

We told you about a leaked HTC device named Ocean several weeks ago and now thanks to a Taiwanese source we have more info about it.

Being named HTC Ocean Note, the device will have between 5.5 and 5.7-inch display and as far as we see in the renders, there is no physical keys on the front. But something else is also missing and this is big – the 3.5 mm audio jack is gone. This will be the second device for HTC without the feature after they ditched the headphone jack in the HTC 10 evo or as Sprint customers know it HTC Bolt.

But the leaks tell us even more – HTC Ocean Note will…

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge user manuals now show the Android 7 Nougat interface

December 29, 2016
Earlier today, we learned that Sammy is finishing up on the beta program for its Android 7 Nougat update and will be pushing it officially to all Galaxy S7 and S7 edge phones in January. Apparently, preparations are definitely underway, as the PDF guides for the two phones are slowly being updated across Sammy’s servers.

So, we now have the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge user manuals refreshed with some of the new features in Nougat. In the pictures, we can see how the new quick toggles menu works — we get a tiny row of 6 icons when dropping the notification shade at first, but pulling down …

Mysterious Meizu press renders surface online

December 29, 2016

As per a few recent and rather interesting leaks, Meizu has a few intriguing devices already in the works and a slew of announcements allegedly planned for 2017. Considering all this, it is hardly surprising that a new and mysterious device has now been brought to our attention with a pair of official-looking renders.

Sadly, the source shares little about the actual model, and its hardware and is a bit less reputable than we would have liked, but we will give it the benefit of the doubt. What we do know is that the alleged device should come out next year, withing the budget Blue…

Popular Shadowverse CCG mobile game receives major update, adds Rise of Bahamut expansion

December 29, 2016

It’s very hard to break through and make your product known to a large audience in the world of CCGs (competitive card-collecting game), especially when you have so many titles from Chinese publishers and developers.

And then you have Hearthstone, one of the most popular CCGs of all time, alongside Magic the Gathering. However, it makes it much easier if you have a solid game and a little bit of money to advertise your new title.

Shadowverse is a rather new entry in the CCG world, but one that will surely be remembered. For example, Shadowverse is now Japan’s …
