LG might kill off modular design in G6

When the LG G5 debuted in April, it made waves with its unique modular-like design. Its removable battery can be swapped out from the phone's bottom chin, and other accessories like a camera grip and a digital-to-analog audio converter, can be attached to give the handset additional functionality.Now a new report from the company's home of South Korea claims LG's next flagship smartphone, the G6, will have no such swap features. It's simply because it turns out that people aren't interested in such gimmicks and just want the best features to already be in their top of the line smartphone when they buy it, not be upsold expensive accessories on top of that.

LG G6 won't have any Friends as the company gives up on modular accessories

LG has yet to confirm or deny this new report, and as always, unconfirmed stories like this should be taken with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, it does sound plausible that LG is trying to make its next flagship phone with a more traditional design, and move away from the still unproven modular idea. The G5 has clearly not been LG's most successful flagship offering, not even close, which might have something to do with the convoluted modular system which required taking out the battery every time you wanted to connect an accessory.

Huawei laucnhes Nova duo officially, starts at $310

The Huawei Nova, which was unveiled alongside the Nova Plus at this year's IFA conference in Berlin, has been officially launched yesterday in China. With its new Nova series, Huawei looks to bring style and refinement to mid-rangers, crafting a pair of handsets designed to evoke the same sort of jealous looks owners of lesser devices feel when gazing upon Apple or Samsung's latest hero phones.

1st on the list, the Nova, a 5-inch device with a Full HD screen, Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 12-megapixel camera with larger-than-average pixels. It’s encased in an aluminum unibody shell and bears more than a passing resemblance to the Nexus 6P that Huawei built for Google. The Nova’s rear-mounted fingerprint reader is, according to its maker, the fastest in the world, requiring only 0.3 seconds to identify a user.

2nd on the list is a 5.5-inch Nova Plus, which has a different design and a couple of spec bumps, but is otherwise a direct match for the smaller sibling. The Nova Plus boasts a 16-megapixel camera (greater resolution, but smaller pixels: 1.12μm vs the Nova’s 1.25μm) and a 3,340mAh battery as its distinguishing features. It has the same Full HD resolution as the Nova.

As for pricing, the 3GB RAM variant carries a tag of RMB 2,099, which interprets into round $310 currently. The 4GB RAM version, prices RMB 2,399, or round $355. Colour choices embrace Vibrant Moon White and Champagne Gold (with black entrance panel) for the 3GB variant, and Rose Gold and Champagne Gold (with each black and white entrance panels) for the 4GB model.

Must Try Virtual Reality Games of 2016

With Google wrapping off its brand new VR headset, Daydream View VR a few hours ago, we all are certain that the VR experiences will be the same as before. You can now only able to watch VR videos, you can also able to play games with the blessing of Daydream View's touchpad and a couple of buttons for interaction which also packed with sensors so you can not only point and swipe. All of these new features can easily be the biggest revolution in the gaming industry's history of evolution. In VR games a gamer can experience being in a three-dimensional environment and interact with that environment during a game. What makes virtual reality so realistic is not only how it immerses players in a 360-degree visual experience, but also how it uses 3 dimensions, real-life audio and head-tracking technology to create a profound sense of physical presence that we are just beginning to explore.

While you may be excited for the promising catalog of VR supported games in different platforms, not everything VR touches turns to gold. Picking the best VR games at the moment is tough. But if there were any virtual reality games I felt like anyone had to try this year, it would be these.

It’s been a few months the world's most popular block-em-up game, Minecraft has arrived on Windows 10 in VR format. You can play the game on either Samsung Gear VR or pricier Oculus Rift. The surroundings itself isn’t the only thing that fits perfectly in VR. The scenes, animals, enemies, and environment also seem a lot more realistic when you can walk right up next to them rather than seeing them all beamed into your computer screen. That simple sensation of occupying such a vast universe is what truly made Minecraft so special. VR introduces the scope of Minecraft upon the games in a completely new way.

Alien: Isolation
Even though this game has been making the rounds on VR for a while, now that the devices will finally begin to launch, Alien fans can experience the already-terrifying game in virtual reality for themselves. Creative Assembly's masterful conversion of the Alien movie into a survival game was an unexpected success of last year, allowing players to take the role of Ripley's daughter, attempting to survive another xenomorph event and discover what happened to her mother. It makes for an utterly terrifying and hardcore experience, proving if there’s any type of game that’s going to do well in virtual reality, it’s going to be horror games.

Pool Nation VR
Ever wanted to play pool with your friends without leaving the house to go to a bar? Thanks to the HTC Vive only Pool Nation VR, now you can do that too. No billiards experiences are compromised in this game. Developed by Cherry Pop Games, this VR game places you in the middle of casual pool hall surrounded by music, drinks and NPCs; which somewhat recreates the experiences of being in a casino. You can play darts, billiards, or even juggle chairs with your friends in this multiplayer pool arena. Pool Nation VR creates an atmosphere designed for socialising, it’s the very definition of emergent gameplay, in the same way, that real-life is rarely defined by pre-ordained rules.

Finally, thanks to the HTC Vive's waggle wand controllers, you're no longer limited to the analog gamepads of the past. So get ready to throw barstools, chairs and empty beer bottles at the wall when you lose because Pool Nation VR is the most comical and somehow simultaneously realistic depiction of everyone's favorite tabletop sport. And, hey, it's not just pool you get to experience – it's the whole bar experience. Yes, you can even go for a few rounds of darts if you so choose.

ADR1FT is one of the very few games which is actually made for VR world. The story of the game is more like the 2014 award winning film, Gravity. You’re lost in space, floating around with no recollection of what the heck happened to you and no idea how you’re going to get yourself out of this mess. In a first-person view, you'll be tasked with navigating a zero gravity setting with an oxygen limit that's realistic enough to keep you from taking off and exploring too far. To make matters even more entertaining, you're simultaneously tasked with completing a series of puzzles throughout five different areas.

Nexus lineup is officially buried under the Pixel name, Google confirms

With the announcement of Google's new Pixel and Pixel XL today, there has been the question of what's happening to the long-running Nexus hardware program, which started in 2010 with the Nexus One and has been comprised of eight phones, four tablets, and two media players. So now as the Pixel duo is already up for pre-order in some markets , what about the company's long-running Nexus line? In a way, the Pixels can be considered the successors to the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P from last year, after all. So will there be any more Nexuses, perhaps that rumored Huawei built small tablet?

According to Google, the company has "no plans" for a future Nexus product, marking the likely end of the Nexus run. To add insult to injury, the aforementioned Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are gone from Google's online store - all traces of them have been removed. You can still order them from other retailers of course, but it's unclear how long that option will remain open. It's also a mystery if they will ever get the full Pixel software suite, including the new Google Assistant functions. For now anyway, if you want any of that you're going to have to shell out a pretty large amount of dough and purchase a Pixel or Pixel XL.

Google Pixel vs Nexus comparison

The Nexus phones and tablets were embraced by enthusiasts and largely ignored by the general public. Nexus phones and tablets were the first devices to get new versions of Android when they were released, and they frequently had hardware features that took advantage of new software features Google was showcasing in the latest versions of Android. Google also experimented with pricing in the Nexus program, ranging from premium-priced smartphones over $600 to lower-cost midrange options.

Redmi Note 3 Pro is now available in Bangladesh for 16990 taka

Though the Xiaomi made Redmi Note 3 is available in Bangladesh for a long time but its until now the device has become officially available here with manufacturer's warranty. The Redmi Note 3 is available with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage along with the price tag of 16990 taka ($220). The company's Redmi Note series has traditionally been focused at the low end of the market – even more so than Xiaomi's other astonishingly good-value offerings, such as the flagship Mi5 series. However, it offers premium features such as metal bodywork, a fingerprint scanner, 5.5-inch IPS screen and a surprisingly fast processor.

It runs MIUI 7 based on Android Lollipop and supports dual 4G SIM cards (Micro + Nano). The handset packs a 4050mAh battery with fast charging support that can charge up to 50 percent in 1 hour. On the camera front, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and two-tone flash. The camera performs just about adequately in bright sunlit conditions but isn’t very good at handling bright skies. The dynamic range is unimpressive and the HDR mode doesn’t do much to solve this issue. It also houses a 5-megapixel front camera. It measures 150x76x8.65mm and weighs 164 grams.

Xiaomi, the Chinese company that makes phones with specs that top Samsung and Apple flagships, and then sells them at half the price, repeat the process again.

Both phones offer high-end internals with the Plus variant getting 6GB of RAM, and dual 13MP cameras at the back, and will go up on sale in China starting this Thursday. The fingerprint sensor on the Xiaomi Mi 5s is one of the highlights of the device, as this is one of the first examples of an under-glass fingerprint solution on a smartphone. However, using an ultrasonic sensor should mean more accurate fingerprint readings for the Mi 5s. Leaks prior to the phone's announcement suggested the company is using Qualcomm's ultrasonic technology, which it's claimed makes it easy to scan your finger even when they're dirty or wet.
