PhoneArena: Today, The Samsung Galaxy A9 was approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center…
On Teanaa site this phone looks beautiful. Looking forward to it.
I still miss my Galaxy Note’s AMOLED screen, and I like big phones. So if the price is right and the back is not made of glass, I’m interested. If this is a glass phone, sorry, I need my phone to survive a drop.
I doubt it but it would be awesome. And a SD slot and a Snapdragon 820 or 830 please.

I think it looks good. They finally figured out how to get rid of the HTC space waster at the bottom of the screen and reduce the impact of boomsound on the top and bottom bezels. Exactly what everyone wanted them to do on the M9. I would much prefer on screen buttons though. It also features the unique aluminum frame.
The renders of this Lumia 850 are totally awesome and I wish they would have done this with the 950. The metal makes a significant impact to the premium effect. I hope these designs make it to market. The renders look great.
PhoneArena: Based on these very renders, concept artist PhoneDesigner published a dozen of extremely well-made, gorgeous renders of the Lumia 850, with a touch of his own creativity.
The Huawei Mate 8’s display to body ratio looks great. I wonder what the actual measurements are. If it is the same as the Nexus 6P that would be great.
PhoneArena: According to The Wall Street Journal, Huawei will showcase its recently announced Mate 8 and Honor 5X handsets at CES 2016 (January 6 – January 9), planning to launch them stateside not long after that.
