Honor V30 to debut next week as the first with Huawei Mobile Services

MWC 2020 may no longer be taking place but for the companies who already hedged their bets on the annual event, the show must go on. In their own way and own venue, of course. Honor, who suffers the same fate as parent company Huawei, will be live streaming from Barcelona next week and it may be one to watch if rumors are true that the Honor V30 and V30 Pro it will announce will also be the first time we'll see Huawei's Google Play replacement out in the wild.

OPPO Watch curved screen claimed to be a game-changer

OPPO Watch curved screen claimed to be a game-changer

Smartwatches have suddenly become hot items in no small part thanks to the Apple Watch's life-saving health features. As far as smartwatches themselves are concerned, however, there has actually been very little innovation or substantial changes in that space. That is a prime opportunity for anyone and everyone to claim a smartwatch revolution, which is the picture that OPPO's vice-president of global marketing is trying to paint in drumming up hype for the OPPO Watch.

Apple Music Replay 2020 playlist is already available

The year has just begun but you don't need to wait for December 2020 to discover or rediscover your favorite Apple Music tunes. Apple has now made available your 2020 Replay list, which may naturally be quite sparse at the moment. The website, which is still in beta, will at least let you watch your music tastes grow (or regress) as the days, weeks, and months go by.

JDI announces LCD screens made specifically for VR headsets

JDI announces LCD screens made specifically for VR headsets

Virtual reality head-mounted displays, at least the ones not powered by smartphones, aren't that easy to make, which is partly why dedicated HMDs are far and few in between, not to mention expensive. In addition to the variety of sensors and cameras required for tracking, the displays used in these headsets are often custom made per VR platform. One way to bring down prices and make VR headsets more common is to commoditize the components which is exactly what Japan Display, Inc. or JDI is doing with what may be one of the few mass-produced displays for VR HMDs.

LG K61, K51S, and K41S bring four cameras to the mid-range

LG K61, K51S, and K41S bring four cameras to the mid-range

LG hasn't revealed a new 2020 flagshIp just yet and, considering the MWC 2020 cancellation, it might take a while before it does. That, however, isn't going to stop the company from trying to fill the smartphone market with non-premium handsets. In typical LG fashion, it is announcing more phones than you can remember, all of which promise the benefits of that popular quad-camera setup without burning a hole through your wallet.

Microsoft Office all-in-one Android app snubs tablets

Microsoft Office all-in-one Android app snubs tablets

Microsoft is doing more than putting a new coat of Fluid paint on its apps and services across different platforms. It has, for better or worse, started to merge three of its core Office apps into one app to rule them all. After going in and out of private testing, that unified Microsoft Office app is now available for all on Android. For some reason, however, Microsoft has chosen to ignore the one or two places where this app could have the most beneficial impact.

Motorola Razr reported peeling at the fold

Motorola Razr reported peeling at the fold

Motorola says that creases and bumps are only normal on its first foldable phone but we doubt it would make the same claim about peeling. The former set of blemishes is pretty much just that but a peeled layer literally destroys the phone and prevents further use. That is the rather unfortunate experience of at least one Motorola Razr owner that also calls into question the long-term viability of the company's already embattled attempt at salvation.

Galaxy Fold 2 rumors sound part wishful thinking

Every high-profile, high-end product, especially smartphones, get their fair share of leaks and insider tips. Some of those pan out while some get thrown out the window.

Some of those can now be found on the upcoming Galaxy Fold successor which is starting to have a laundry list of things users might be wishing for rather than what might be feasible in a given time.
