their Galaxy Note Series, the Note . (Note that the Note 7 is
called the Note 7 and not the Note 6 because Samsung wants
to bring some order into their lineup ). As much as it hurts the
Apple fanboys , Samsung won the last round of
smartphone wars with the Galaxy S7 Edge .
The smartphone is almost identical physically speaking, but is a
step up in many ways, from the Edge. From the curved 5.7-inch QHD
(2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED screen (which, as we know, delivers the
deepest blacks on the market), to the battery bump (3500mAh), to the
advertised Iris Scanner (interesting, if executed properly), to the 4GB
of RAM, to the 64GB of internal storage (up from the 32GB in the S7,
and expandable up to 256GB via Micro SD), to quick charging and
quick wireless charging, to the Exynos processor (appaz, the
Snapdragon 820 version is for North America, China and Japan), to the
one piece of hardware that makes a Note, a Note: the SPen .
Samsung says the SPen can be used to doodle on the screen without
unlocking it, translate text, take down handwritten notes, and it doesn’t
stop working because of a trivial thing like water on the screen. Yes.
Both the Note 7 and the SPen have a resistance rating of IP68, which
is not exactly water-resistant but is more than good enough for most
They put the same ( excellent ) 12MP camera as in
the S7 series, and it will come running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Note 7 will be available in Nigeria from September 2 in three
colors, Blue Coral, Gold Platinum and Black Onyx

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
iPhone 11 – Is there anything left to announce?
It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.

Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
