Ready to buy some new gadgets or accessories? This morning is filled with announcements and launch news. Sony and Xiaomi are getting ready to bring new devices to the market, while OnePlus is giving us some awesome accessories.
Those looking for a new smartphone in Hong Kong will soon have a great option from Sony. The Japanese manufacturer has announced they will be releasing the Xperia T3 in Hong Kong this July 14.
The mid-end smartphone sports pretty good specs, including a Snapdragon 400 processor, a 5.3-inch 720p, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM, 8MP/1.1MP cameras and a 2500 mAh battery. Pricing is still unknown, but the device should be affordable. It will be available in black, white and purple.
Opinion: Sony’s devices are usually greatly built and offer a good experience, even if design tend to be very “classic”. The T3’s success should greatly depend on pricing, though, which is yet to be discovered.
Xiaomi’s Lei Jun is hyping a new announcement set to come on July 22nd. The teaser shows a huge number “4”, hinting at the unveiling of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 4, the manufacturer’s next high-end smartphone. The device is also said to be made of metal, which goes parallel with this teaser’s background.
No more details are revealed, but previous rumors state the device will sport a Snapdargon 801 (or 805) processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP camera and a 5.2-inch 1080p display.
Opinion: Xiaomi has been taking over the market, selling out its devices within minutes, wherever it lands. The Xiaomi Mi 4 is all but guarantees to be a success, so let’s stay tuned for that July 22nd announcement.
Remember those wooden backs OnePlus was touting when they first announced the OnePlus One? They are still coming, and very soon. The Chinese manufacturer has posted a teaser on their Google+ page. It’s a simple one: it shows a wooden background with a message saying “Knock on Wood – 7.22”.
So, odds are these back plates will be released on July 22nd. Stay tuned for more details to come!
Opinion: I happen to love the wooden look on the OnePlus One. We also have to wonder when those denim covers are coming, though. Hopefully soon!
