The three devices revealed have screen sizes between 5.5 and 6.8 inches, use Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, and feature an updated design with metal frames and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on both sides.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
