More teasers and leaks show up as IFA comes closer to a launch. Meanwhile, T-Mobile keeps challenging its competitors.
IFA is right around the corner and we are now getting more details about all the upcoming announcements. HTC is now teasing an image with an “820”, probably hinting at a possible HTC Desire 820 announcement (the number goes will with that line).
No other details are given, but the Desire line is known for offering mid-end, affordable smartphones. They are still made with awesome designs and strong build qualities.
Opinion: While HTC says nothing about this teaser, it seems to focus on speed and agility. Will this be a fast phone? Maybe it’s camera will be able to capture fast moving objects better. We are not sure.
T-Mobile will take any chance to attack their competitors. The Uncarrier is now offering a new deal that will further entice other carrier subscribers to join the revolutionary network. The company is offering a year of unlimited 4G LTE navigation to anyone who comes from Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. In addition, referrers get the same treatment.
While this offer is going against all other major carriers, it seems T-Mobile is focusing most on Sprint, telling us they want to “rescue beleaguered Sprint customers.”
Opinion: Quite a harsh move, if you ask us. T-Mobile is making it really easy for any customer to switch, even I am considering jumping ships.
More details of the Galaxy Note 4 approach as we get ready for the September 3rd announcement at IFA. Today’s rumors involve the device’s camera, which is put out to be quite stunning. In fact, it’s said to take advantage of side touch controls for releasing the shutter.
The Note 4 is said to come with a powerful 16 MP Sony IMX240 sensor, featuring optical image stabilization. The camera is capable of handling UHD video (2840x2160p) at just 30 FPS – an outstanding feat. The 3.7 MP front-facing camera is no slouch either, as it handles WQHD (2560x1440p) images and photos without issues.
Opinion: Samsung cameras are very often powerful smartphone tools. We can expect them to go all out with the Galaxy Note 4, one of their most important flagships.
