13/01/2017 - 2:39pm Samsungs Galaxy S8 Plus phablet will be the only variant with a dual-camera We've heard the claims before, but a new report out of South Korea adds further weight to the idea that the Samsung Galaxy S8 series will ditch a physical Home key in favour of on-screen controls. However, while earlier reports claimed the fingerprint scanner would be hidden under the display glass, others have suggested it will be moved to the phone's back panel - this latest report reiterates the latter rumour of a rear-mounted scanner. Several recent leaks from casemakers have shown the design of the Galaxy S8, and while it clearly lacks visible front-mounted controls, they do not clear up the question of where the fingerprint scanner is. Additionally, this latest report claims the Galaxy S8 Plus model will be the only variant to have a dual-camera sensor; we've also heard this before, and the renders appear to support the idea that one model, at least, will have a single sensor camera.

It lacks a headphone jack, like several newer smartphones (including Apple's iPhone 7), and instead features a USB Type-C port. Headphones are also included in the box. The U Ultra is the struggling electronics maker's latest attempt to grab a slice of the smartphone market from Apple and Samsung, after recently revealing that its total revenue had fallen by more than a third during 2016. HTC has an opportunity to rebound and capture the phablet market with its U Ultra, catering to those who may have otherwise opted for Samsung's problem-plagued and discontinued Note 7.

As expected , HTC has joined the league of players that believe headphone jacks are relics of the past and don't deserve their 3.5mm space on modern smartphones. The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer today unveiled two new smartphones in its new "U" lineup: "its first phablet in a while" HTC U Ultra and "aggressively priced" HTC U Play. Neither carry the 3.5mm jack, a trend that Apple gifted to the world . SEE ALSO: It's time to accept reality Android users. The headphone jack's going away. Both the new smartphones follow "Liquid Design" language, a major departure from the aluminium unibody that older HTC smartphones carry. The "symmetric" smartphones have a curved glass body on both sides now with metal running along the edges. Read more... More about Android , Htc 10 , Smartphones , Htc U Play , and Htc U Ultra

HTCs getting smarter - well, its phones are. The HTC U Ultra (another new line of handsets to wrap your head around) is a phablet thats packing in some high-end specs and an all-new AI companion and for something below a flagship price. Before we get into the AI on board (which is infuriatingly, boringly called HTC Sense Companion) lets talk about the design: this is not an all-metal form. This is Liquid Surface from HTC, and its a glass and metal frame that encases the 5.7-inch display. Its an odd look, one thats both a single block color and pearlescent at the same time, depending on how the light plays off it. It looks pretty stunning from afar (especially the sapphire blue variant) and has a subtly curved back that feels nice to hold in the palm. This is important ergonomically, as a phone of this size - 163 x 80 x 3.

The HTC U Play is the smaller and cheaper version of the HTC U Ultra, a new phablet model from the Taiwanese brand. In fact, the handsets are so similar in terms of design and function that we suggest you head on over to our hands on: HTC U Ultra review to see an in-depth look at whats going on, but well concentrate on the differences here. HTC U Play release date and price We sadly dont know the U Play price just yet, and thatll make a big difference as to whether you buy it or not - if its too expensive then the lower spec simply wont be worth the money. However, well at least get to see it soon, with European availability coming in mid-February after the Asian launch. HTC U Play specs Where the U Ultra has a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, the U Play is using a MediaTek Helio P10 option, which is still octa-core and 64 bit but might not run as powerfully as the Qualcomm version.

When unfolded, the handset will transform into a working 7-inch tablet. Samsung apparently started out developing a device that folded inward, but switched gears in August 2016, thinking it'd be too much of a hassle for someone to unfurl the phone anytime they wanted to use it. We've seen this fold-out design before in devices created by Lenovo, including a phone that turns into a wearable device and a foldable tablet that becomes a phablet-sized device. Lenovo Folio tablet concept Though Samsung is seemingly pushing ahead with its foldable smartphone, sources say it could nix a 2017 unveiling due to marketing and profitability concerns. A decision reportedly won't be made until an executive reshuffle is completed in February or March. One factor that could spur an unveiling is LG's reported plans to produce 100,000 foldable devices in Q4.

Paul Briden 11/01/2017 - 7:44pm HTCs next flagship, the Ocean Note, is coming on January 12 A bunch of HTC-related leaks have all trickled out at once, with the news that the firm is poised to launch a new premium-grade phablet dubbed the "Ocean Note". HTC has announced it will be hosting a launch event on January 12, with the branding for said event being "for U" (a bit like Samsung Unpacked, we guess), and at the same time, leaked images and video ( via Evan Blass, aka @evleaks ) have also appeared via Weibo showing us what to expect. According to details sources by 9To5Google , the Ocean Note will feature a similar design language to HTC's previous flagships such as the HTC 10, using a metal unibody. However, the rear panel uses a gloss finish metal with colour options apparently confirmed as black, white, gold, or blue. On top of this, the design incorporates not just one, but two "ticker" displays as well as the main touch display.

U.S. carriers have sent out an end-of-life software update to handsets that remain in circulation, rendering the devices unable to charge.
