OnePlus is getting ready to announce a new product, Amazon is killing off a major feature and Samsung is estimating extreme amounts of Galaxy S6 sales.
OnePlus continues to grow, making its way up the very steep ladder that is the mobile industry. It has come to the point that if OnePlus speaks, the whole press listens. The Chinese startup is no joke and now we are getting ready to see what the company has to announce.
OnePlus has started sending out invites to an event they will be holding on April 20th. There’s not much to the invite, but OnePlus does tell us “from here on out, anything could happen.”
Opinion: Could this be about the OnePlus Two? We are expecting it to launch in the third quarter, which is not really soon. I guess anything could really happen. We’ll see.
Today we have pretty bad news for those of you who are fans of Amazon’s TestDrive. This service allows users to… well, test drive applications. This service would allow users to run applications in an Android cloud emulator.
Amazon states the decision was based on the fact that usage has been declining. They also claim that the popularity of free-to-play games and applications played a big part in this choice. The featured was actually killed a couple days ago, after which any app with the feature would no longer be able to take advantage of it.
Opinion: I am actually quite sad to hear about this, as it was one of the features that really put the Amazon App Store apart from the competition. Did any of you guys use it, or am I the only one?
We know Samsung is breaking records, but the numbers the Korean manufacturer is estimating are even more impressive than what we have seen so far. The Korea Times reports Samsung estimates Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge sales to go over 70 million units. Truly, this is a number only a beast like Samsung can reach.
“The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are drawing positive responses. I have no doubt that they will be the biggest-sellers in the Galaxy series ever.”
Opinion: Samsung did something amazing here, so it’s no surprise the newest Galaxy is a hit. Not only is it the best Samsung device ever, but it’s one of the best phones ever built, period.
