Microsoft video teases HoloLens 2 ahead of MWC launch

One of Mobile World Congress’s most anticipated reveals isn’t a phone at all.

Lenovo Yoga C630 Review: Can Windows On ARM Handle A CES Roadtrip?

The Yoga C630 is a portentous little laptop: not because it’s loaded with overpowered technology, but because it isn’t. It’s the new flagship of the WOS platform—full, Windows-powered laptops running on the ARM Snapdragon chips primarily seen in smartphones. This Lenovo ultraportable isn’t the first WOS laptop, but it is the first one with the Snapdragon 850 system-on-a-chip. Qualcomm says it’s designed this chipset specifically for full laptops. With looser space and thermal requirements, it s...

Nokia 2 users will get Android Oreo update option soon, but there’s a catch

Earlier this week HMD Global revealed Android 9.0 (Pie) roadmaps, but the Nokia 2 was missing from the list.

Today, HMD Global’s Chief product officer Juho Sarvikas‏ has finally revealed the reason behind the long delay. Nokia 2 that was launched in 2017 running Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) OS, later the company said that the phone will get Androi...

Amazon’s cloud is slowly addressing one of its biggest criticisms as it extends another olive branch to open source developers (AMZN)

Amazon Web Services announced a new open source project on Thursday called Neo-AI, which helps developers bring artificial intelligence to hardware like security systems or maybe even self-driving cars.  Amazon has historically had a reputation for using a lot of open source software, without giving much back. But Neo-AI could be a sign that it's ready to be a bigger part of the open source community. Neo-AI is Amazon Web Services' second-ever open source project, after Firecracker, which it...

The Meizu Zero is a Phone with No Ports or Buttons Because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Meizu Zero Some people say phones are largely boring now, which may be somewhat true. But to keep things interesting, you have companies like Meizu trying new and, erm, innovative things. Like the new Zero phone, which has no ports or buttons. Building a phone with no ports or buttons was surely a challenge, but if we’re honest, probably no more challenging than using said phone. Hell, it doesn’t even have a speaker grille. It’s just a screen and a body. To offer the feel and function of a ...

Huawei Honor’s smartphone with a hole-punch display is real

Honor officially launched the Honor View 20 today in Paris. Honor is Huawei’s sub-brand for mid-range phones. And the View 20 doesn’t look like your average smartphone — the company traded the notch for a hole-punch display. Honor thinks that this design isn’t as intrusive as a centered notch. And rumor has it that Samsung could also put a hole-punch display into the Samsung Galaxy S10. I played with the Honor View 20 for a bit of time, and it definitely feels different from an iPhone X-style...
