A new flagship from Sony is on its way, OnePlus Two specs rumored, Google patents automatic Incognito mode.
HTC may not be alone at MWC 2015. Sony looks to be getting ready to bring its 4th-generation Xperia Z device as the new handset passes Japanese certification. Yes, we are talking about the very Sony Xperia Z4… already.
Three versions went through certification at the manufacturer’s home land. These would be the PM-0792-BV, PM-0793-BV and PM-0794-BV; one for each main Japanese carrier.
Opinion: No specs or other information has been disclosed by these filings, but knowing Sony it won’t likely be a huge upgrade over the Xperia Z3, just like the Z3 wasn’t a huge upgrade over the Z2.
Xiaomi has announced its amazing Mi Note Pro, so now it’s OnePlus’ turn to wow us with their upcoming OnePlus Two. Will it be as awesome as we are expecting it to be? Anonymous sources seem to swear by it.
The new device is said to come with a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 3300 mAh battery. In addition, it’s said the 5.5-inch display will stay the same size, but resolution will be bumped up to 2K. And, of course, we should expect to see Android 5.0 packed inside this bad boy.
Opinion: This phone should be a beast, at least if these rumored specs are to prove to be true. Pricing is expected to be at 2699 Yuan, which is a bit higher at about $435 USD, but it’s very worth it.
Web security is a hot topic, and Google is at the forefront of it all with its popular Chrome browser. Today’s news revolve around a new patent Google has been granted, which would allow them to automatically switch you to Incognito (or private) mode depending on the nature of the website you are browsing.
And no, we are not just talking about your naughty night-time websites. This seems to be more focused on privacy and security. This feature would stop your browser from saving information when, say, a page asks you for credit card information, or when a secure log in dialog shows up.
Opinion: Google applied for this back in 2011, so it has been a work in progress. We will likely see this feature come up soon!
