Lowi enters the price fight; applying a significant price cut to all its rates

 

The return to the cole of the operators promised to be tremendously interesting, for the benefit of the users. MsM was the first to announce improvements in its offer , but Amena raised the temperature when it announced that its free extra gigs for summer would stay forever . Fiesta to which Tuenti has also joined, with important improvements in its mobile tariffs and Yoigo with its renewed Combinado Azul .

And obviously, since Vodafone could not stay watching as their rivals improved their rates, with the threat of losing customers that it supposes. The counterattack of the British operator comes through Lowi, which has decided to improve all its tariffs, with important price cuts in mobile and convergent tariffs , placing its offer as one of the best on the market.

The movement of Lowi, more than expected after the Amena, will not consist of increasing the gigas of their rates, which will continue to have the eight-gigs as the top. The second Vodafone brand has chosen to opt for the price reduction , which in some cases reaches up to nine euros.

 

This is what we ask Apple for the new iPhone 8 that we will meet on September 12

 

Summer ends and with its withdrawal, the last (and most expected) presentations of the year arrive. Just a week ago we met the new flagship of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and now we are about to know the novelties of other manufacturers like Sony, which will be presented at the next edition of the IFA in Berlin.

But in addition, we still have to meet another of the flagships of the market, the new iPhone that will take over the current iPhone 7 to crown itself as a banner company Cupertino and we already know that its official presentation will take place the next 12 of September . Apple’s new phone has already leaked many things , but there are also many others that we would like to tell us about it the day of its presentation.

Screen without frames

This is one of the characteristics of the most talked about, and is that it seems that Apple could add back to a trend of the market as it did in its day with the dual camera. This elimination of frames would almost inevitably remove the physical home button from the front, something that does not affect the way we could use the phone, but it would match the iPhone with its current main rivals .

 

Nokia 8, first impressions: power and defenses Zeiss brand under a family wrap

 

Although the expected return of Nokia came earlier this year, it was not until last August 16 when Nokia finally announced its first high-end mobile , the missing piece to complete its discreet but interesting catalog. We talk, of course, of the Nokia 8 .

The Nokia 8 comes with standard features such as the 2K display, the Snapdragon 835 processor or its dual camera, three key pillars to measure yourself with the most competitive handsets . Taking advantage of the framework of the fair IFA of Berlin, HMD has taken to walk its new flagship and we have had occasion to test it during several hours. These are our first impressions of Nokia 8.

‘Classic’ design with great attention to detail

As in many other consumer sectors, fashions rule, and today the fashion in design within the world of mobile phones is to adjust the screen to the edge. At the moment Nokia has not entered this race and the Nokia 8 has quite prominent upper and lower frames , but can not be blamed for having excessive size or weight, in fact feels comfortable and is not complicated to handle with one hand.

 

What does it mean that the LG V30 has an f / 1.6 aperture on its rear camera

 

Yesterday LG put the rest to try to conquer the market of high ranges. He did it during the IFA Berlin, although the correct thing would be to say that he did it before its opening, because the fair opens the doors to the public today 1 of September. Climbing to a stage at the Messe Berlin, LG deployed and boasted of everything that their LG V30 is capable of. The first really international V mobile and one of the strongest candidates to be the mobile this year .

In the presentation there was time to talk about all the strengths of the device. From its huge P-OLED screen with hardly any frames, an evolution with technology change over the LG G6 months ago, and also the incorporation of Qualcomm’s latest high-end chip. But much of the protagonism was taken by his double camera and there was a fact that did not go unnoticed: the opening of his main lens.

The biggest opening achieved in the mobile

It was not trivial to give as much hype to seemingly as insignificant data as his main lens had an aperture f / 1.6, a number marks a record right now as the first mobile lens to achieve such a wide aperture . Those closest to it, the f / 1.7 that Samsung starts to mount in its midrange, the same that already uses OnePlus or HTC. E Even Vivo and Oppo.

The aperture of a lens in optics, so it applies the same as traditional cameras to mobile phones, reflects the aperture diameter of the lens itself with respect to the focal length and is also a number inversely proportional to that aperture, because it is written in a fraction. That means that a smaller one reflects a greater aperture. Greater opening, more light.

 

The advance in the manufacture of some components suggests that the Galaxy S9 will arrive in January

 

With the still-warm body of a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and official confirmation of the filing date of the new Apple phone, the iPhone 8 , we find a new news that involves another flagger as a flagship .

We talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9 from which now come siren songs that point to a fairly considerable advance for its filing date. The rumors, which point to the month of January as possible departure date for the new flagship, are based on the manufacture of one of the components of the device to take shape.

Galaxy S9 in January?

As we say, the basis of this latest rumor lies in the hardware elements of the future phone, specifically on the screen. And is that according to the information, Samsung could start receiving the OLED panels for their Samsung Galaxy S9 this same month of November.

We would be talking about two months before what happened with the Samsung Galaxy S8 , and according to calculations, once the screens are ready, they usually spend around two or three months until they are sent to the assembly chain, reason why which rumor marks January as the filing date for the Galaxy S9 instead of March.
