Ready for your weekend craze? Get your mobile news before you head out! We have a couple rumors and good news for those who hate unnecessary writing in phones.
Are you ready to take a look at what could be the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3? That is exactly what we have for you today. The upcoming device is said to be photographed in the images below. If this leak is to be believed, you will find Sony’s usual design language.
Buried inside you will also get a Snapdragon 801 processor and Adreno 330 graphics, as well as a 20.7 MP Exmor RS camera. That is about all we know of this device, but stay tuned as more details continue to come.
Opinion: I really wouldn’t hold my breath on this leak. The Xperia Z2 hasn’t even finished releasing yet! It will be a while before we see any official details of the Xperia Z3.
Gorilla Glass and other reinforced types of glass are amazing, but what’s the next step? According to Apple and Kyocera, sapphire crystal is what it’s all about. Apple is said to be using sapphire crystal in the upcoming iPhone 6. Now Japanese manufacturer Kyocera is also jumping in the bandwagon.
According to CNET’s sources, Kyocera is planning to release a phone with sapphire crystal display. Of course, Kyocera si not commenting, but we did get a bit of proof elsewhere. A video of Kyocera testing sapphire glass was recently uploaded. You can give it a watch right below!
Opinion: Should we trust the sapphire hype? Gorilla Glass swears their glass is still better, but all the tests show sapphire taking the hits like a boss.
Have you seen all those weird symbols, usually placed in the back of your devices? They look like a bunch of jibber jabber to us, but they mean everything to the FCC and other regulators. They sure look annoying, though.
This is why we are glad to tell you these symbols could soon be going away. The E-Label Act would allow manufacturers to digitally stamp devices, instead of etching these symbols straight into the phone. They are not doing it for the sake of aesthetics, though. The claim is this could reduce prices for the manufacturer, hence bringing lower prices to consumers.
Opinion: Personally, I am just glad to see these going away. Design is a very important factor, and no one like to see these pesky symbols ruining our smartphone zen.
