September is always a great month for anyone interested in technology and it kicked off with the 2015 IFA Berlin consumer electronics trade show. Here we take a look at the best of show, focused on the unusual smartphones that are heading our way soon.
The Huawei Mate S is set to rival the flagship phones from Apple and Samsung and it will do it with a much more palatable price tag. The innovative features usher in a new level of interaction:
The Huawei Mate S also has a full metal body, a 5.5” display that can be used to weigh items, a fast 2.2GHz processor and a 13MP/8MP camera combination that can be used creatively for light painting.
The Acer Predator 6 will bring to market tech that we have never seen before. A 10-core 2.5GHz processor with 4GB RAM will handle absolutely any game that you can throw at it and there is a huge 6” screen that supports graphics at 120 frames per second, while overall power consumption is reduced by 30%.
In this Acer Predator 6 exclusive, we can predict other tech, from the Predator range, that will be featured on this ultimate gaming handset:
The Lenovo Vibe P1 was one of three phones announced by Lenovo but this was the best of show with its whopping battery. At 5,000mAh the battery is so big that it can even be used to charge other devices.
The Lenovo Vibe P1 will have a perfectly sized 5.5” display, a fingerprint sensor, super-fast Wi-Fi and a 13MP/5MP combination of cameras.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, scheduled for an October release, will be the first smartphone to feature a 4K display. 4K displays have a resolution that is four times more defined than Full HD.
This means that the 5.5” display will cram in 806 pixels per inch. This is slightly crazy as it is widely believed that the human eye cannot perceive this pixel density. We will only know for sure though when a physical product is produced.
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium will be supplied with a re-imagined camera sensor from Sony with a 23MP resolution and it will, of course, be powered by an octa-core processor.
