There may be no “flat” Galaxy Note 6

While the Galaxy Note 6 may be coming with an "Edge" version right out the gate, it's possible that no flat version will come at all. NOTE: Before we go any further, make certain you understand that we're working with pre-official information here, not confirmed data from Samsung. What we're to understand as of this week is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 - likely coming with the name Galaxy Note 7 (skipping the "6" to match the Galaxy S line releases), will come with a curved-edge display. And that there may be no traditional release.

Hyperkin Smart Boy for Android devices turns up at E3

Hyperkin Smart Boy for Android devices turns up at E3

We always have to be weary when seemingly cool products are unveiled for the first time around the first of April. Many tech and gaming firms out there have a history of unveiling plausible, very cool products luring geeks to buy it only to scream, "GOTCHA!" when you try to add it to your cart. ThinkGeek is perhaps the biggest purveyor of this kind of trick. Back around April Fools 2015, Hyperkin tried to trick us all with the Smart Boy, a device that turned an iPhone into a modern Gameboy. As has happened with ThinkGeek a few times, the response was so great that Hyperkin decided to produce the product and at E3 this month, the product was spied.

LG G5 can connect to LG’s USB-C 4K monitor

LG G5 can connect to LG’s USB-C 4K monitor

Despite being an industry standard, Google engineer Benson Leung, who worked on the Pixel C Android tablet, discovered that adoption was not only slow but also done improperly. To some extent, it's understandable given how new the technology is. So it isn't hard to imagine Leung's contentment when he discovered last month that the LG G5 actually supported the standard's Power Deliver spec. Apparently, the good news doesn't stop there, as he is now reporting that it also supports the new DisplayPort over USB-C spec, which allows it to connect to LG's own 27-inch 4K USB Type-C monitor.

OnePlus 3 Dash Charge only works with OnePlus cable, charger

Quick charging, by whatever name the feature is called, has become the band-aid solution to our battery woes while we await the day when newer, better batteries are finally available. Not surprisingly, each OEM or fast charging technology requires the use of a proprietary charger. The OnePlus 3, however, one ups all of those by requiring not just a proprietary charger for its Dash Charge feature to work, it also requires to use of a proprietary cable at, of course, only OnePlus sells.

Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner to come from Patron

That an upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone is rumored to have an iris scanner isn't exactly new. Those rumors have been circulating as far back as 2013, but never really came to pass in the 2015 models. Nth time's the charm right? That seems to be the case yet again for the Galaxy Note 7 (or Note 6 or Note 7 edge) but this time around, Korean media is giving a name to the manufacturer of said sensor. In this case, Korean camera module maker Patron is named as the source of the iris scanner that will grace the face of Samsung's next premium phablet.

Jide reveals the Remix Pro 2-in-1 tablet, more Remix devices

Android is an operating system that, almost like its Linux ancestor, can be found almost anywhere and any device. That doesn't mean, however, that it offers the best experience outside of smartphones and tablets. Take for example laptops and desktops, where Android normally just looks like an overgrown tablet. Jide's Remix OS addresses that space, providing a desktop-like Android experience for maximum productivity. And today it has announced the next batch of Remix OS powered devices, including a much-awaited next gen Remix Pro 2-in-1 Android tablet.

Pokemon GO, Pokemon GO Plus accessory launch date revealed

After a long wait at E3 2016, Nintendo finally gave the information that Pokemon fans have probably been waiting for. The Pokemon Go Plus accessory for the game is scheduled to launch late July. Although not explicitly stated, that can only mean that the monster-catching AR game itself will be launching at the same time. Of course, we can hope that it will be earlier, but we'll still take late July as a good sign. That is, if Niantic Labs and The Pokemon Company don't run into showstopping bugs and issues before then.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 gets “professional audio” support

NVIDIA has traditionally been seen as a "good citizen" when it comes to the speed and frequency of rolling out Android updates and this latest one cements that image. No, there isn't a new Android version released (unless you count the new Android N Preview, but that's another story). That, however, isn't stopping NVIDIA from pushing out an update to the SHIELD Tablet K1 that could still delight owners. The update is short but substantial, giving users the ability to split navigation buttons and adding support for hi-res audio.
