Huawei Mate 10 Pro

US will welcome the flagship phone of Huawei – Mate 10 Pro. The Mate 10 Pro comes with a standard 6-inch display but what the bonus is the display is OLED FullView.

The resolution? 2160×1080 QHD. Movie watching experience is gonna so be great with Mate Pro. An unusual 18:9 aspect ratio may make you use both your hands at the same time. A 402 ppi gives out a clear and crisp image. There are, not one, but two cameras on the back side of the device. Both have a 27mm f/1.6 Leica lenses. One of them has a 20MP monochrome sensor, another one with a 12MP RGB sensor.

The cameras have optical image stabilization(OIS) which help in capturing more light onto the sensor even in dark surroundings. Video recording can be done with a UHD 4k resolution. It is powered by a Kirin 970 chipset with a 6GB RAM. Internal memory storage is 128GB. Mate Pro will run on the Android Oreo 8.0 flavor.

HTC Vive Pro

Here comes the new VR headset from HTC, an upgrade for the previous HTC Vive. The Vive Pro is much better than the original Vive. A higher resolution 2880×1600, you get a 615dpi. A clear and clean view of the picture and you can notice the tiny details better than before. Built-In headphones and better audio quality will surely attract more customers. Not only that, the device is light in weight too.

The lighthouse sensors and controllers will be sold exclusive of the device. A subtle difference from Vive is color. And the additional front-facing camera. The integrated option for headphones has a twist knob to help keep the headphones keep in one place.

HTC Wireless Adapter can remove the wire that runs from the back of the headset to PC. Performance is good & immerses the user into the virtual world. The enhanced resolution helps for the same.

Its a headset worth waiting for. But Vive owners you may not want to upgrade.

Vivo In-Display FingerPrint Sensor

Still expecting Apple or Samsung to make history ? Vivo made it at this year’s CES 2018!

The Chinese tech manufacturer came up with the in-display fingerprint sensor on a handset that gives a futuristic feel when held in hand. Vivo handset is a little bit slower in learning the contours of the fingers but we can brush it off.

Well, it’s similar to the traditional fingerprint sensor that you can already find in other phones but VIVO uses the Synaptic Optical Sensor. It works by connecting the pixels on the OLED display and identifying & matching to the patterns stored previously. Why OLED? This technology cannot be achieved on an LCD screen.

You may ask the handset name in your eagerness. But you have to wait as Vivo still hasn’t disclosed the name. The device was found to be similar to OnePlus 5T . A 6-inch screen with minimum bezels.

“With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology,”said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President, Vivo.

Expected Release:
The company further informed about the mass production of this particular handset & the oncoming sales by the Q2 of 2018. The company has also announced the mass production of its first optical in-display fingerprint sensors too.
