I ask normal people which of the top-3 high-end phablets they think is the better one among Huawei Mate 7, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the flagship phablets from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. I think the Mate7 is the best among those, although for me to recommend it to everyone, Huawei should price it at $299 instead of $499.

Greg Kroah-Hartman shows the Google Project Ara prototype phone and development board, and he talks about Greybus the protocol that they are developing to make it possible for these hardware modules that must be able to talk to each other and to the host module, they can be hot swappable, they have to be able to describe themselves so everything just works smoothly, they work on the knowledge that they have from USB, PCI, Firewire and all the previous protocols that people have implemented, they work on the base level of what UniPro can do, and they go from there. This is just another sub-system of Linux that drivers plug into. Rob Herring is the project tech lead at Linaro for Project Ara, and he talks about how the Linaro guys are working on the Kernel portions, the ARM Applications Processor modules and the Android modifications to support hardware modules hotplug in a Smartphone.
Smartphone hardware modules Google Project Ara is being shown by Linaro CEO George Grey, as the modifications to Linux on ARM to support Project Ara are being developed and optimized together with Linaro engineers, many of the Google Project Ara engineers meet at the Linaro Connect conference to advance their development for the project. Linaro is one of many companies working for Google on Project Ara, focused on the firmware and on the software to make Android work with removable modules, to communicate through the UniPro bus for hardware modules. Linaro has a lot of experts in Linux and the Linux kernel, able to deliver what Google needs for this project.

The MHL Consortium has outdone itself with their latest technology mega specification, now perhaps setting the spec at a very future proof level (shall we say at least until 2020?), supporting up to 8K at 120fps, with up to 40W for power charge, delivering higher resolution, faster frame rates, support for the upcoming USB Type-C (dual side reversible) connector for up to 8K 60fps output from a phone (wow wow!). For the first time, MHL also introduces a new superMHL connector for 8K TVs (as in the first 8K TV from Samsung shown at CES). The SuperMHL spec is for mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray players, Audio/video recorders, HDMI sticks and other source devices to TVs and monitors, as SuperMHL should be included in most future FHD/4K/8K TVs, PC Monitors, MHL has shipped in over 750 Million devices thus far. The new SuperMHL spec is also offering wider color gamut, deeper colors (to reduce color banding), high dynamic range (HDR) supported through signaling and through higher bandwidth.
