Now that MWC 2017 has come to an end, we're back on our next Weekly Feed that features the top tech news that you would have missed throughout the week.
TCL came out with details about a new BlackBerry smartphone called the KEYone. Repping the android operating system, the device will launch in April and will be available worldwide. In case you’re wondering, yes it still has a keypad and you can even program the keys to act as shortcuts for opening apps. Click here for more.
The LG G6 was one of the first big flagships to be announced at MWC and it’s quite an eyeful. The biggest feature of the phone is its massive 5.7-inch display with HDR support. While the screen may be huge, the phone is not, as it uses minimal bezels to fit that screen without being a burden on your pocket. We’re really looking forward to it and we can’t wait to get our hands on it for review. Click here for more.
Nokia makes their triumphant return to the world of smartphones along with a bonus. The Nokia 3310 is back and it comes with a new look and more features. It still has Snake though and that’s what we’re probably buying it for. Click here for more.
Apart from evoking a sense of nostalgia, HMD has announced 3 Nokia android smartphones that will be available globally in the next quarter of 2017. The Nokia 3, 5 and 6 come with a wide range of price points and specifications. For all the details, we have linked the article in the description below. Do check it out. Click here for more.
Man, Sony is all over the place. We have two new mid-range smartphones the Xperia XA1 and the Xperia XA1 Ultra launched at MWC. Both phones come with a 23-megapixel camera, which is the main reason you’re going to get them. Sony knows how to put quality first when it comes to cameras. Click here for more.
Apart from the XA1’s, Sony also unveiled the Xperia XZ Premium. Now, what makes this phone special is its 4K HDR display panel, a world first by the way. With a Snapdragon 835 powering it and IP 68 certification to keep it working in a pinch, the XZ Premium is definitely worth keeping an eye on this year. Click here for more.
And last but not least in the Sony line-up we have the Xperia touch projector. It’s an android powered device that you can interact with like any android tablet, but on a projected display. It’s an interesting concept that was first shown to us a year ago, and it’s cool to finally have it ready to launch in the market.
Oppo wasn’t a part of the smartphone announcing line-up, but they still showcased something worth talking about. They announced a new dual-camera sensor that’s capable of zooming in up to 5 times the magnification without requiring any digital enhancements. Now let’s put that into a phone and ship it out because we can’t wait to give it a go. Click here for more.
The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus are coming in March and they’re giving a heads up to all the other flagships out there. The return of the Leica Dual Camera, which we absolutely loved here at Feedbaac, has us really excited. The P10 Plus specifically seems to be made to compete with every other high-end smartphone looking to come out this year. Click here for more.
Apart from smartphones, there’s also the Huawei Watch 2 joining the Android Wear scene. It comes in a wide range of styles and has more features than we could possibly cover right now. For the full details on both the P10 devices and the Watch 2, we’ve linked our news articles in the description below. Click here for more.
Motorola was not one to keep quiet though as they launched the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Not to be confused with last year’s LG smartphone. The Moto G5 is the more inexpensive between the two whereas the G5 Plus is a bit more high-end. They’re both easy on the wallet though and we’re expecting them to come out later this month.

Xiaomi was MIA from MWC this week but that didn’t stop them from turning heads. In Beijing at their own event, they announced a new chipset called the Surge S1 which will feature in their upcoming phones. Phones like the Xiaomi Mi 5C. The processor seems to draw comparisons to the Snapdragon 625 and the MediaTek P20, making it perfect for budget smartphones. However, Xiaomi says they do have a high-end processor in the works as well that will likely compete with the best in the market. Click here for more.
The Galaxy S8 has done away with the home button in favor of capacitive ones and edged out the bezel for a larger display screen. The S8 comes with a 5.8-inch super AMOLED display and the S8 plus has a larger 6.2-inch quad HD display. Contrary to all the rumors, the 3.5mm jack is still present on the phone. Which is good. The official launch of the Galaxy S8 is coming March 29th so cross that day off your calendar folks. It’s going to be a big one. Click here for more.
