1) Samsung’s Foldable SmartPhone
The leading Korean news site has recently published an article reporting that Samsung is going to release a foldable smartphone in the year 2017. Samsung has registered the patent of the smartphone with the images of the phone design. The analyzation of images and patent, it seems like the new Samsung phone will have a “clamshell-style” design.

2) Google’s Pixel 3 Laptop with Android OS
As per the news, Google is planning to work with the Android and Chrome OS on more and more devices next year. The new Android OS will be called ‘Andromeda’ which will be released with the new Pixel laptop launch in Q3 2017 by the company. The whole project is named as ‘Bison’ and the new product will be a brand new and first showcase by Google with the combination of Android and Chrome OS in a laptop.
The ‘Bison’ is the pinnacle of years of work of Google’s teams of Pixel and Android. The Andromeda is completely a distinct effort by the tech giant for bringing the Android applications to Chromebooks. But that does not mean that Bison will be marketed as the Chromebook. It will be having a 12.3” ultra-thin display which will also support the tablet forms. It will be powered by an Intel i5 processor with 8/16 GB RAM and 32/128 GB of storage. It will come with a battery backup of around 10 hours and other useful features. I am seriously excited to see what the Bison impact will be made on the market next year!

4) HTC Vive 2 VR Headset
We know that the VR headsets like Facebook’s Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive track your head positions and allows you to have more realistic exploration in the world of virtual reality. But they needed to be tethering with a powerful PC and installation of positioning hardware to work perfectly. After the release of the Vive VR system in April 2016, HTC is looking to cut the cable from the PC with its new launch of the Vive 2 VR headset.
Though HTC did not reveal much about what Vive 2 will offer to its users, the second-generation VR headset will surely answer the shortcomings. It will offer a more integrated solution than its predecessor. It will be smoother than the original one with the jumped refresh rate of 120Hz from the previous 90Hz. This high-ended VR handset is likely to be launched in the mid of January – 2017.
