HTC reportedly plans to release HTC One X10 mid-range phablet in first quarter of 2017

HTC is still looking for a path forward after the poor performance of the HTC 10. It got the nod to manufacture Google's Pixel phones, but that doesn't do anything to rehabilitate its flagging brand. While its flagship play for 2017 is still a mystery, VentureBeat reports that it will launch the HTC One X10 phablet in a few months. It won't be a high-end phone, but maybe this is what the company needs right now.

Watch Emily Ratajkowski explain how Dash Charge works on the OnePlus 3 and 3T

OnePlus likes to talk a big game about everything it does, and that statement is even more true when it comes to Dash Charge, the fast-charging feature introduced in the OnePlus 3 and 3T. If you follow the company's social presences, you'd notice at least a few mentions of Dash Charge every week, but this new video is a whole other ball game.

OnePlus got Emily Ratajkowski, who seems like the personification of a millennial (hate the word, but it's the most suited here) celebrity to explain how Dash Charge works, vocal fry and all. Presumably, loads of cash changed hands in the process, but not enough to make Emily seem less bored during certain segments of the 2min+ video.

LG's new SJ soundbar series brings Chromecast, high-resolution audio, and Dolby Atmos

LG has been one of the first companies to adopt Chromecast, then Google Cast, in its speakers and soundbars with the LG Music Flow series, to let users stream music wirelessly and without the need for a separate Chromecast Audio dongle. Support for its line-up has been less than stellar though, with the speakers being seemingly abandoned without firmware updates, no sign of multi-room or grouping to make them compatible with other Chromecast devices and Google Home, and leaving users without any hope for the future (check these threads as two small examples of customer frustration). With that grim asterisk in mind, I can tell you about these new soundbars that LG is showing off at CES.

Looks like Samsung is keeping the Note brand after all, likely will release the Note 8 around the usual time this year

When a new year begins, sometimes you just want to forget the mistakes of yesteryear. After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, some of us thought that Samsung would, or should, ditch the Note brand to avoid any future distrust in the consumer market. Well, it would appear that the electronics giant is not going to do that.

Honor announces the Honor 6X with dual cameras, Kirin 655 SoC, and Android 6.0 for $249

Are you a "cost-conscious yet uncompromising Internet-minded millennial?" If so, this is your lucky day, because Huawei's Honor sub-brand says it knows how you think. It understands the "double or nothing motto that millennials live and breathe." Finally, someone gets it! These are all things Honor has said in its PR today as it announced the global launch of the Honor 6X. It only costs $249, and I assume you can buy it even if you're not a "young and bold consumer." I myself am old and cautious.
