In the world of tech, a lot can happen in seven days. This week we look at the Sony Xperia L1, LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone, and Disney’s streaming plans.
Three launches Sony Xperia L1
With a smooth performance and a standout display, the Sony Xperia L1 is here. Perfect for anyone looking for a mid-range phone that’s easy to use, the Sony Xperia L1 boasts a 5.5” display, 2GB RAM and 16GB memory. You can also add a MicroSD card with a capacity of up to 256GB.
We’re a big fan of Sony here at Three, and one of our favourite features of the L1 is the Smart Cleaner function which guarantees speed by analysing your phone usage, deactivating unused apps and clearing your cache. And if it’s a camera you’re looking for, the L1 has you covered, with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera.
Smartphone maker LG is known for gradually releasing details of their upcoming phones, and this time is no different. As we await the launch of the LG V30 in the coming weeks, LG has announced that the phone will have an extremely impressive camera.
First of all, the V30’s lens will be made of glass instead of plastic, increasing photo quality. The dual camera will also have the largest ever aperture on a smartphone camera lens, which means the lens will deliver much more light to the camera sensor, resulting in improved photos in low light conditions. Finally, the rear camera will feature laser detection autofocus and electronic image stabilization.
So if having an excellent camera in your smartphone is important to you, the LG V30 will sound especially exciting. The flagship smartphone is set to be unveiled at the end of this month, so stay tuned to The Week in Tech for more details.
Disney to launch its own streaming service
Disney announced this week that they will be pulling their content from streaming leader Netflix, in order to set up their own streaming service. Disney currently has a distribution agreement with Netflix until 2019, after which point they will remove their content and create a new ‘Disney-branded service’.
TechRadar reports that the new streaming service will include classic Disney movies, as well as TV programmes from the Disney Channel and upcoming movies such as Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2.
