Tonight’s Second Video Worth Posting: The ViVo X21, With Under Screen Fingerprint Sensor

By Tim

Tonight we have another great device, not in my price range, but certainly a glimpse of the future on smartphones. The Vivo X21 features some decent specs, has a large display a great aspect ratio and has something that is pretty bleeding edge!

That something is a fingerprint sensor that is actually embedded under the display. Yeah, no buttons! Is it perfect, not yet, but it works pretty darn good and that is enough to make me want to share this unboxing/mini-review of this device.

This one comes to us from Ben over in Hong Kong who gets all this stuff before we do and does a nice job. Make sure to check out his YouTube channel.

So let us proceed with haste to the video!

That is all for now,

Tim

Huawei, Asus embrace the smartphone notch

By Matt Burns

The notch is here to stay. Two upcoming phones are reported to sport the awful, disgusting notch at the top of the screen. Huawei and Asus are following Apple and Essential down the notch hole. Neither of these phones are confirmed or officially announced yet. Both the Huawei and Asus models appeared online ahead of their official unveiling. They sport, among with what I assume are top-tier… Read More

Here’s a Laptop Powered by Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile Of all Platforms: Miraxess Mirabook

By Radu Iorga

Even though Windows 10 Mobile is pretty much dead, it doesn’t mean there aren’t some people who are still passionate about it, so passionate that they’re making DIY projects. One of them involves the laptop below, completely powered by a Windows Phone.

Continuum previously allowed one to run apps on a monitor via a wireless or wired connection, by hooking up a smartphone to a display, keyboard and mouse. Mirabook is a whole new idea and it’s basically a barebone laptop that uses Continuum to get powered up by a Windows 10 Mobile phone. The creation of Miraxess, the Mirabook comes with a backlit keyboard, up to 10 hours of battery life, a 1080p 13.3 inch screen, 2 USB Type-C ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI, one audio jack and an SD card reader.

The machine has an aluminum shell and the user experience feels similar to hooking up a Windows 10 Mobile phone to a larger monitor, only in laptop form. The price is seriously appealing, at just $249 and the deliveries should happen in May 2018. A Lumia 950 is recommended for use here, which is actually the last powerful Windows 10 Mobile launched, before the platform kicked the bucket.

The laptop uses DisplayPort technology and comes with green technology and a great degree of customization. Apart from the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, you can also use the Alcatel Idol Pro 4, Acer Liquid Jade and HP Elite x3. A version for Android users is also in the making, based on the Galaxy S8, Note 8 and Huawei Mate 10. More details are found here.

Lenovo Showcases Flexible Tablet, That Becomes Dual Display Phone Basically at Lenovo Tech World 2017 (Video)

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo amazed everyone last year at the Lenovo Tech World event, where it showcased a bracelet able to be turned into a phone and viceversa. In this year’s edition of Lenovo Tech World, it brought fourth the evolution of that concept: a folding tablet.

The likes of Microsoft and Samsung have been patenting such a machine for a while now, but without concrete products to show off. Turns out that Lenovo actually has one and it looks pretty viable. The Lenovo Folio is that device and it’s demoed in the videos below. It features a flexible touch display, that expands from a 5.5 inch diagonal to a 7.8 inch one. It uses a Snapdragon 800 CPU and offers a 1920 x 1440 pixel resolution.

Also in the mix is a 4.2 mm fold radius and narrow bezel bonding technology. This is an e-SIM machine, that runs on Android 7.0 and Lenovo could end up releasing it with either Android or Windows, or both. What fascinates me is how seamless the screen looks in tablet mode. You actually cannot see the area where the device flexes. It then becomes a quite thick dual display smartphone, with a curved left side, that continues the screen to the back side.

When opened the slate is reasonably slim, but in phone mode, it’s rather beefy. We get to see it in both black and white, with the main camera looking weird on the top front of the tablet. The future Lenovo Yoga series may just rest within such a machine. Color me impressed, but let’s first see a commercial unit. And when everything’s said and done you still end up with a dual display handset in the end.
