Oppo R815T Flagship Quad-Core Android Phone Coming Soon

Chinese mobile phone maker Oppo is reportedly getting ready for the launch of a new high-end Android-based device in the now too distant future, though it would pack it with a smaller screen than that of the Oppo Find 5 handset, it seems.

According to the latest reports on the matter, the new device will feature a 4.3-inch IPS display, while being powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor, paired with 1GB of RAM. Furthermore, the handset is said to pack an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, to run under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and to offer support for the TD-SCDMA network of China Mobile.

The upcoming handset is also said to sport model number R815T, and is expected to arrive on shelves with the same HiFi feature that Oppo Find 5 (which can be seen above) arrived on shelves with. It might be priced between 1,500 Yuan ($241 / 186 Euro) and 2,000 Yuan ($322 / 248 Euro), MyDrivers claims.

Samsung to Pack Galaxy Note III with an Unbreakable Display

This fall, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics might bring to the spotlight the next-generation Galaxy Note III smartphone, currently expected to arrive on shelves with a 5.9-inch touchscreen display.

While capable of delivering a 1920 x 1280 pixels resolution, the panel is also said to be flexible, and might also prove to be unbreakable; at least this is what a recent post on Asiae notes. The handset was also said to arrive on shelves with Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top, while expected to feature an Exynos 5 Octa processor, the same as Galaxy S4.

Other rumored specs of this device include 2GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back (which might be a 13MP one, in the end), and a larger battery compared to Galaxy Note II.

BlackBerry Z10 Gets Torn to Pieces

BlackBerry Z10, the latest smartphone from the Canadian mobile phone maker and the first to run under the new BlackBerry 10 operating system, and been torn down by the people over at iFixit, who were interested in learning more on what it packs inside.

BlackBerry enthusiasts who already grew fond of the handset’s looks will certainly appreciate a look at its internal circuitry, especially since this is the first BlackBerry to pack a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor inside. As expected, the teardown exposed the phone’s new motherboard, along with its 3.8 V, 1800 mAh Lithium-ion battery, the 8 megapixel auto-focus camera, 16 GB MLC NAND Flash from Samsung, 3-axis MEMS Accelerometer and 3D Accelerometer & 3D Gyroscope, and the like.

All the details on the matter can be found on this page, complemented by photos with all the BlackBerry Z10 internals.
