HP planning to release new smartphones before the end of the year [RUMOR]



Despite things not turning out so well the last time we saw an HP-built smartphone, the manufacturer might have plans to reenter the space. According The Information — an online publication who prides themselves on getting the “inside scoop” on tech news — HP could be planning to soon release a new phablet line before the end of the year.

These big-screened smartphones would feature display sizes of 6 and 7 inches, just don’t expect Galaxy Note-like prices. Apparently, HP’s gunning for emerging markets with these big fellas, slated for release in countries like India, China, and the Philippines, at a price point between $200 and $250.

While there wasn’t any word that these devices would actually feature Android as their operating system of choice, we think it only makes sense given the recently released HP Slate tabs rocking Jelly Bean.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
