The uneventful January is almost over now and our attention has completely shifted to the Mobile World Congress which starts in a month.
This is reflected in our most read articles throughout the week, which are peppered with Galaxy S9 and S9+ titles. The most read article from this past week concerned the upcoming Galaxy duo’s fast charging capabilities (which are starting to look a bit regular these days). Another engaging story was the 1080p@480fps video capture that might debut on the Galaxy S9. Finally the design of the Galaxy S9+ was shown alongside some case renders and we got the confirmation that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on February 25.
Just like in week 3, Xiaomi was a source of interest in Week 4 too. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’s leaked specs gathered a lot of attention. Nokia’s rumored penta-camera setup was also a point of serious interest.
Then there were the usual leaks and rumors – the bezel-free Meizu 15 Plus and the Xiaomi Mi 6X made the rounds, Apple may have a 6.1-inch iPhone with a “tall” 18:9 LCD screen. And finally vivo made the first phone with an under-the-screen fingerprint reader official – the vivo X20 Plus UD.
Stay tuned for next week’s interesting tech stories.
