In the midst of all the MWC 2017, Google has announced that the Google Assistant will no longer be exclusive to the Pixel phones and will be coming to devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 7.0 Nougat.
Samsung made a few announcements during the press conference at MWC 2017, which were the Galaxy Book tablet, the Galaxy Tab S3 and a updated Gear VR with a touch controller
After numerous leaks, the LG G6 is officially revealed at MWC 2017. For the G6, LG says they listened to consumer feedback and user opinions, especially since the G5 wasn’t that well received.
The G6 has a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with a 18:9 aspect ratio (which LG calls FullVision) and a resolution of 2880 x 1440 and 564 ppi. The new aspect ratio makes the G6 more slimmer than the G5 and the display itself, much taller, so it produces less bezels.
Huawei made a few announcements at MWC 2017, including a follow-up to last year’s P9 & P9 Plus with the P10 & P10 Plus and the Huawei Watch 2.
TCL and Blackberry have announced the next smartphone in their partnership, with the KEYone (which was previously codenamed Mercury).
The KEYone has a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1620 x 1080, 434ppi and a 3:2 aspect ratio. Just like Blackberry devices before it, the KEYone has a physical keyboard that is similar to the one featured on the Priv.
Gaming laptops have become more and more popular these days, because they allow you to play games on the go. Some of the big names in gaming laptops that you’ve probably heard of are by Razer and Alienware (which is by Dell) but I bet you wouldn’t have guessed that HP is making gaming machines as well.
HP’s OMEN lineup is specifically tailored for gamers and I haven’t used a lot of gaming laptops but I’m liking where HP is going with the Omen 17 laptop I tested out.
I’ve been using the HP OMEN Laptop PC – 17-w018ca (W8X26UA) for a few weeks now and I wouldn’t call it the absolute best laptop out there but it is definitely great for gaming.
Jide Technologies, the company behind Remix OS and the Remix IO box, have announced a new version of their OS that is especially made for Android phones.
Snap Inc., Snapchat’s parent company, is now selling their video-recording sunglasses called Spectacles on their website for $129.99 USD.
Dell has been around for a long time and their computers haven’t always been the best out there. But in recent years, their machines have gotten drastically better.
Dell’s lineup of laptops, especially their XPS line, have become thinner, faster and stronger, to compete with the likes of Apple’s offerings.
When Google first introduced their virtual reality platform back at Google I/O 2016, it showed that the company was serious about the new technology. The first headset that works with the Daydream VR platform is the Google Daydream View which isn’t like other headsets on the market.
Being different isn’t necessarily a bad thing, in the case of the Daydream View, it’s actually better that it’s different. I’ve been using the Daydream View for a few weeks and it’s easily one of the best phone-based VR systems I’ve used.
