After taking on the Chinese phone market and winning, LeTV are turning their attention to the worlds fastest growing phone market, India!

LeTV are actively looking to expand out of China and hope to launch video streaming services in the U.S that rival Netflix, they also want to launch their range of smartphones elsewhere too, but where first?

CyanogenMod bringing their OS to more Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo phones

CyanogenMod are working on more builds for phones by popular Chinese manufacturers Huawei, Xiaomi and Oppo.

With the rise in popularity for Chinese phones, CyanogenMod have pledged to offer more support to owners of handsets from better known Chinese vendors.

The ROM maker plans to continue it’s longterm partnership with Oppo which began with the Oppo Find 5, and release Cyanogen builds for the latest Oppo R7, R7 Plus and R5 smartphones. We will also see the Huawei Honor 4 and Ascend Mate 2 see continued development, plus the company even mention the upcoming Huawei Nexus getting a look in too (perhaps they know something we don’t).


Ramos MOS 1 Max teased to get larger display and 6000mAh+ battery

Tablet maker Ramos released its first smartphone this year and are now teasing a second larger model with 6000mAh battery.

A few months ago Ramos held a press event where the tablet maker released its first Android phone. The Mos 1 costs 1999 Yuan in China, is designed to be visually similar to the iPhone 6 while remaining slimmer and obviously more cost effective. We were impressed to see that the first Ramos phone boasted a slim 1.9mm bezel, 7.6mm thickness while retained a large 3050mAh battery, a still overlooked area by some phone makers.

The battery is once again a point of consideration on a new Ramos phone that is being primed for a launch in October. The new model is called the Ramos Mos 1 Max hinting at a large screen size (possibly 6-inch), and rumoured to get a larger battery to match.

The first teaser shows the battery as a selling phone of the new phone, but if that’s not proof enough then we have a leaked photo of a 6000Ah battery manufactured my BYD that is destined to live in the device too.

Ramos are expected to ramp up the marketing for the Mos 1 Max and we hope to see another Qualcomm powered device with slender design released at the launch.

Huawei Nexus getting the gold treatment, leaked render shows 4 colour options

The Huawei Nexus is a device that has really got me all a buzz, and with the purported launch just days away more renders of the device have managed to surface.

Huawei building a Nexus phone is incredible for someone like me. When I started GizChina, there was no way I would believe that just 6 years later Chinese phones were going to be at the forefront of innovation, and even leading the market with flagship Nexus mobiles. That time has come and I get a little tingle each time I think about it!

6.9mm Vivo Y27L launches in India

The stylish entry-level Vivo Y27L is now available in India for 12,990 INR or US$196.

If you’ll be purchasing the Y27L, it’s more the style and form that you’ll be paying for than the specifications. That’s because what’s inside the Y27L is fairly in-line with phones half its cost.

Can’t keep track of your thoughts? Don’t worry, that’s what apps are for. Google just gave Apple fanatics one more option in their arsenal of virtual memory programs: Google Keep is now available for iOS.
The Evernote competitor (or knockoff, depending on how cynical you are) launched in 2013 and had lived exclusively in the Android ecosystem on mobile. Though it’s always been accessible on the Web, it now has it’s very own stand-alone app for iOS.
