HTC is trying to take on the LG G4 with more camera features. Meanwhile, the ASUS ZenFone 2 gets a US launch date and Nubia Z9 leaked images emerge.
There’s a plethora of factors that make the LG G4 an amazing device, but photography enthusiasts are likely most excited about RAW photo support. In fact, that was one of the capabilities listed in our top 10 LG G4 feature list. It turns out LG wasn’t alone in this movement for long, though.
HTC has just rolled out an update to the One M9 camera app, giving users access to images in RAW format. The best part is you won’t need a full system update; just go to the Google Play Store and grab the camera update.
Opinion: RAW support is very important for those of us who really care about photography. I am sure this will take mobile photography to a whole other level, bringing it the closest it has ever been to DSLR photography.
The ASUS ZenFone 2 is here to compete in a very tough market. Affordable handsets are on the rise, and ASUS believes they can take your cash with an enticing device named the ASUS ZenFone 2. We have tested this phone thoroughly and know all about it. All we want to know is when the affordable handset will hit the American market.
It turns out we won’t have to wait much longer. ASUS has been sending out invites for an ASUS ZenFone 2 launch event that is to take place come May 18th, in Manhattan. We will likely see the phone release some days after, if not the same day.
Opinion: I was dumbfounded when I learnt about the ASUS ZenFone 2 at CES 2015. There’s no doubt this is one of the affordable phones to beat in 2015, right up there with the Moto G.
Nubia is expected to announce the new Z9 smartphone next month, but it’s never to early for some leaked awesomeness. We are not very sure about the specs, which seem to be inconsistent so far, but these images do show something that caught our eye.
The bottom seems to display what looks like a USB-C connection, making this one of the very first phones to support the new connection.
Opinion: I am surprised more manufacturers haven’t gotten in line to release USB-C supported devices. It’s to become the new standard. Regardless, this is looking like an awesome phone. Let’s hope more details emerge soon.
