After creating much buzz over the last few days, HTC has finally lifted curtains from its squeezable smartphone, the HTC U11.

HTC U11

What's interesting is the Edge Sense technology that allows interacting with the device by squeezing it from the sides. One can perform actions like launching an app, clicking a snap, or opening virtual assistants like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. The best part is that the Edge Sense can be easily used even with gloves on, something which is difficult with capacitive buttons.

HTC U11 comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560x1440 pixels) display, with a pixel density of 534 pixels-per-inch and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The device runs on HTC Sense based on Android 7.1 Nougat. It is 7.9 mm thick. The 3,000 mAh battery supports Quick Charge 3.0. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the Home button.

The smartphone runs on 2.45 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset. It comes with an all-glass design. The rear covers are colorful and glossy. It is backed by 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage (expandable up to 2 TB via a microSD card).

The 3.5 mm headphone jack has made way for the USB Type-C slot. HTC U11 conforms to IP67 rating and thus, is waterproof (up to 1 meter for 30 minutes) and dustproof.

HTC U11 comes in black, blue, red, silver, and white color variants. It will be available next week onwards and is priced at €749 ($830 approx.).

Celebrity endorsements for products is not a new thing. Almost every industry spends a lot of their marketing budget making known personalities vouch for their products. Smartphones are not untouched by this behavior. While many celebrities are brand ambassadors for various smartphone manufacturers (for instance, Amitabh Bachchan for OnePlus, Deepika Padukone for Oppo), few just grace the audience with their presence during launch events (for instance, Randeep Hooda and Nimrat Kaur at Huawei Honor launch). Then there are the ones who have announced their brands - 'Being Smart' phones by Salman Khan. Recent to join this wagon is the cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar with his srt.phone, which will be produced by Smartron, a brand in which he is an investor.

Smartron srt.phone to launch in India on May 3rd

Smartron srt.phone will be launching coming Wednesday, i.e., May 3rd. The brand took to the microblogging website Twitter to announce the same.
In case you still couldn't make it out, the name of the device is the initials of Sachin's name (Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar) followed by the keyword 'phone'. The naming strategy follows the one adopted by Smartron for the t.phone and the t.book, both of which were launched last year.

While no specifications or features have been teased so far, the upcoming device will be inspired by the God (read Sachin) himself. We expect the smartphone to feature Sachin's autograph at the rear.
Smartron srt.phone is supposed to be Flipkart exclusive.

As die-hard Sachin fans, we are waiting for the day. Are you?
Gionee S10, the alleged successor to last year’s S9, has been spotted at the Chinese certification website TENAA.

Gionee S10 front and rear

The device is expected to feature a metal unibody design, just like its predecessor. It will sport a 5.5-inch FHD display, with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.

The rear camera on the device will be a dual lens setup, with each lens being 13 MP. The secondary camera will be a 16 MP shooter, apparently hinting at another selfie-focused smartphone after the recently launched A1.

Gionee S10 sides

Gionee S10 will run on an octa-core chipset clocked at 2 GHz. It is safe to assume it will be the MediaTek Helio P20 since P10 was the one used in Gionee S9. The smartphone will feature 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage, which will be expandable up to 128 GB via microSD.

The battery capacity will be 3,700 mAh. The fingerprint sensor will be embedded in the Home button in the front, just like its predecessor. The device supports 4G LTE and VoLTE. It will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.

LG's latest flagship of the famous G series, the LG G6, was recently launched at the Mobile World Congress. LG V20, another flagship phablet from the brand, was also announced recently. How do the two devices from the same manufacturer stand against each other? We try to find out.

LG G6 vs. LG V20

Battery capacity


LG G6 boasts of a 3,300 mAh battery, while the LG V20 has a 3,200 mAh battery. Thus, the G6 has around 3% larger battery capacity.

Battery type


G6 comes with a non-removable battery, while the LG V20's battery can be removed.

Color options


G6 offers black, platinum, and white variants, while the V20 comes in gray, pink and silver.

Design


G6 boasts of an aluminum frame along with glass panels at the front and rear, while the V20 comes with an aluminum unibody design.

Dimensions


LG G6 is 148.9 mm in height, 71.9 mm in width and 7.9 mm in depth. LG V20 is 159.5 mm in height, 78 mm in width and 7.6 mm in depth. Thus, V20 is around 7% taller and 9% wider, while the G6 is 4% thicker in comparison.

Display aspect ratio


LG G6 comes with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9, while the LG V20 features the usual 16:9 aspect ratio.

Display pixel density

Display resolution


G6's screen has a resolution of 2880x1440 pixels. V20 features a QHD display, with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.

Dual screen


G6 has only one screen, while the V20 features a second smaller screen above the main display to house shortcuts and notifications without interrupting the primary display.

Internal storage


G6 offers 32 GB memory, while V20 has doubled the built-in storage.

Price


LG G6's pricing is yet to be revealed. LG V20 is available at an average price of approximately $682.

Primary camera


LG G6 comes with a 13 MP standard lens, along with 13 MP wide-angle lens. The LG V20 boasts of a 16 MP standard lens along with a 8 MP wide-angle lens.

Water resistance

Weight


LG G6 weighs 163 g, while the V20 weighs 174 g. Thus, LG V20 is almost 7% heavier.

  • Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 supported
  • 4 GB RAM

  • Headphone jack available
  • Fingerprint sensor at the rear
  • NFC supported
  • Android 7.0 Nougat with LG's skin on top

Verdict


Since the LG G6 is not yet available, it is tough to declare a winner by just the specifications. However, if you are an audiophile who prefers phablets, there is no point waiting for the G6, and LG V20 is the choice you must make. Otherwise, it is worth waiting for the price at which the LG G6 will be offered. One downgrade in the G series from the Korean giant is their moving away from the modular approach applied in LG G5.
If you were born in the 90s, you must remember the popular 'brick' phone by Nokia. If not, you might know of your parents owning one. Yes, I am talking about the Nokia 3310. That was the time when phones were meant to break the floor they fall on, and not to get smashed to pieces themselves (this is not true, but I am sure you understand what I mean). HMD Global, the team that now uses the Nokia brand name, has relaunched the iconic feature phone at the ongoing Mobile World Congress. Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 are also announced.

Nokia 3310

The device comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA(320×240 pixels) display. It is an upgrade to the original model which featured a monochromatic screen. It comes in single and dual-SIM variants. The newer model is flatter and rounder in comparison to its predecessor.

16 MB internal storage powers the Nokia 3310. It is expandable up to 32 GB via microSD card slot, which is a first when it comes to feature phones.

The primary camera is a 2 MP lens with LED flash, yet another first for feature phones. We do not expect a secondary camera, and there is none.

The phone is packed with 1,200 mAh battery. If the company claims are to be believed, the expected standby time is 31 days (one full month!) while the talk time is 22 hours. The device runs on Nokia Series 30+ operating system. The famous Snake game has also made its way back and is available on this phone by default.

Nokia 3310 comes in red and yellow color variants with a glossy finish and blue and gray with the matte finish. It is priced at €49 ($52/₹3,500 approx.). It will be available second quarter onwards later this year.
