High costs and uncertain benefits are slowing chipmakers down in transitioning to 7nm technology production of processors.
Like many of its compatriots this year, the Alcatel 5V aims to provide a lot of essentials with pretty good specs, but at an affordable cost.
SuperCharge beat out Google and Apple's simpler systems as well as other adapter-based systems like OnePlus's Dash Charge and Motorola's Turbo Charge.
Qualcomm is said to be the main supplier of modems as it has been for many years. That leaves MediaTek as the alternative for now.
Qualcomm may still be the primary supplier of modems for the iPhone, but the second fiddle position is quite important and is in contention for 2019.
Qualcomm has been a longtime partner with TSMC, but has gone with Samsung as of late. Progress on a new fabrication turned it around.
From 720p to 1080p and just a bit taller, too, the display seems to be the centerpiece of improvements to the Nokia 5 from HMD Global.
Clean software, smooth hardware and modern amenities all on a budget. The new Nokia 3 is the first of a trio of phones to go to market.
MediaTek's Helio P22 is by far the world's humblest 12nm-based processor, potentially opening the door for some crazy affordable smartphones with stellar battery life.
Supply chain whispers claim that it would go for around half the current price of the HomePod. Will it make a dent and appeal to a younger core audience?
Samsung's in-house Exynos processors, currently powering exclusively Galaxy devices and a few Meizu phones, may soon expand to handsets made by more companies, including ZTE.
The company says that it has sufficient money in the bank to pay workers, but that with a US imports ban, employees have nothing to do.
The device runs on a MediaTek Helio P60, a mid-range processor with a 12nm fabrication and eight cores. It should do fine on paper. It shouldn't need to cheat.
The Taiwanese government recently started cracking down on any potential weapons-related shipments to Chinese tech manufacturer ZTE.
After the US Commerce Department placed a 7-year ban on ZTE sourcing any products from the country, Taiwan is taking a more skeptical tone to the mainland China entity.
The world's biggest contract chipmaker is apparently facing some tough goings with its biggest client. Most high street analysts say its Apple.
The second-string mobile semiconductor is getting ready to bring new, low-end Android devices with the latest software on them.
HTC puts out two more phones for the end of 2017, each with their high points. But the elephant on our show here is the Razer Phone.
Will MediaTek be able to churn up China with fancy face-reading cameras with Meizu... perhaps on a Meizu phone next year?
No Qualcomm LTE modems for any iPhone or iPad variants next year? That may have sounded like a far-fetched theory a while ago, but now it's possible.
The Helio P10 started things off as a fairly popular mid-range chip for OEMs. The Helio P20 was slow to pick up. So, how are the P30 and P23 going to do?
It looks like the device will sport a metal body, a fingerprint sensor, a 2,710mAh battery and a mid-range MediaTek chipset.
It is worse since November. The process is hidden better and can encompass everything about your phone from your location to what apps you install.
