Meizu’s MWC press event scheduled for February 28

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu has started sending out press invites for its MWC 2017 press conference. The invite reveals that the company's press event is scheduled for February 28, a day after the MWC officially kicks off. The invite, however, doesn't reveal anything about the star of the event, or exactly which products the company will showcase - it just says "Faster Than Ever."

New report claims Samsung’s next phablet will be called Galaxy Note 7 instead of Note 6

A new report out of Samsung's native South Korea now claims that the company's next flagship phablet will not be called Galaxy Note 6, as everyone expected. Instead, Samsung will allegedly go with Galaxy Note 7, skipping the number 6 entirely. The main reasoning behind this move apparently has to do with consistency. Samsung wants all of its flagships released in the same year to have the same number - so if this pans out, in 2016 we'll have the S7, S7 edge, and Note 7. That way there's no chance of some consumers assuming that a Note 6 is a generation older than the S7 edge, for example. This might also be meant to make the company's products more easily compete with Apple, which is going to launch the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus later this year. Once again, a Note 6 competing with the iPhone 7 Plus could have been perceived as older by people who don't really know anything about the mobile market but do want to spend incredibly high amounts of money on phones.
