      • Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab A2 appear on TENAA

        17th July 2018 Samsung is preparing to introduce two tablets - a premium-tier Galaxy Tab S4 and a more affordable Galaxy Tab A2, both of them with thinner bezels and without a physical home button. The latest info comes from Chinese communications regulator TENAA. Devices with model numbers SM-T835C and SM-T595C just got certified and approved to work with LTE, CDMA, and GSM networks.

      • 2018 iPhones' front panels surface, impressively thin bezels all around

        17th July 2018 It's already confirmed by now that Apple is going to release three variants of this year's iPhone - a plus-sized iPhone X, a direct successor to the iPhone X and a "budget," by Apple's standards, iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD. We've heard a lot about these devices for the past few weeks and months, but it's just now we get to see how all three iPhones will look like from the front. Take a look at their panels. Left to right - iPhone 5.8" (OLED), iPhone 6.1" (LCD), iPhone 6.5" (OLED) We were able to find three images coming from two different sourc...

      • OnePlus 6 scores a respectable 96 score from DxOMark, beats iPhone 8 Plus

        17th July 2018 DxOMark reviewed the OnePlus 6 camera and the results are quite positive - it scored higher than the Galaxy Note8 and both iPhone 8 models (but trails the X by a single point). Not bad for a €520 phone, now is it? If the OnePlus camera has a weak spot, it's shooting videos. It scored 100 points on photography, but only 87 for video. Still, that puts in a point ahead of the Google Pixel 2 for still shots. The still camera was commended for fast and accurate autofocus, reliable exposure and vivid colors, plus a solid performance by the flash. Some noise is present in uniform areas and...

      • Xiaomi officially confirms the Mi A2 Lite is coming on July 24

        17th July 2018 Xiaomi's Twitter account continues to tease the launch of the Mi A2 and it even officially confirmed that it will be joined by the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. The first tweet said "2 is better than 1" and the next tweet named the Mi A2 Lite explicitly. In case you missed it, someone put the Mi A2 Lite on sale yesterday, at a reasonable price ($190) and confirmed the specs. The phone is more or less a Redmi 6 Pro except with stock Android instead of MIUI (in the same way that the Mi A2 is a Mi 6X). Xiaomi officially confirms the Mi A2 Lite (launching on July 24) The differences between...

      • Huawei nova 3i prematurely goes on sale without a notch

        17th July 2018 AliExpress sellers have no qualms about offering phones that aren't official yet. The Huawei nova 3i is the latest example as both 4GB / 64GB and 6GB / 64GB versions were put on sale. The prices are $480 and $520 respectively (that's €410/445). Three color options are available for both versions: White, Black, Red and Purple. The image in the listing may not be entirely legitimate - there's no notch. All previous leaks show a notch and the nova 3 has a notch as well (it too has a 6.3" screen, but with a notch and 1,080 x 2,340px resolution). That said, the 1,080 x 2,160px r...

      • OnePlus 5 and 5T's latest OxygenOS Open Beta bring Google Lens support

        17th July 2018 While the last OxygenOS Open Beta update for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T was a significant upgrade bringing support for Project Treble, the latest versions for both devices offer smaller changes. The OxygenOS Open Beta 14 for the OnePlus 5 and the Open Beta 12 for the OnePlus 5T are focusing entirely to the camera app. They add support for Google Lens and improve overall image quality - the changelog says that it reduces the "oil painting effect". This means that you can expect sharper images. If you are already running the Open Beta on your device, you should get the 253MB OTA...

      • Samsung unveils 8 gigabit LPDDR5 RAM chips for next-gen phones

        17th July 2018 Earlier this year Samsung started making GDDR6 memory chips on a "10nm class" process for graphics cards and now the foundry is cranking out the industry's first 8 gigabit LPDDR5 chips for next-gen phones. Note: "10nm class" means "between 10nm and 20nm", so it's not an actual 10nm node. These chips promise transfer rates of up to 6,400Mbps, a 50% improvement over the current top chips - LPDDR4X at 4,266Mbps. This speed is achievable when the chips are powered at 1.1V, for lower power operation a 1.05V mode is available at 5,500Mbps. Voltage isn't f...

      • Sony is holding its IFA press conference on August 30

        17th July 2018 Sony has just revealed in an email it will hold its IFA press conference and product announcement on August 30 at 1 PM CET. The company's current mainstream flagships Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Compact debuted at MWC so if the comapny sticks to its usual twice per year upgrade cycle we should see their successors at the venue. We might get a first glance of the Xperia XZ3 with four cameras, since phones with model numbers H8416 and H8616 with Android P popped up respectively in benchmarks and user-agent profile listings. We'll be on site, keeping you updated so make sure you stick...

      • Emporio Armani Connected 2018 Announced

        17th July 2018 Fashion brand Emporio Armani announced the Emporio Armani Connected 2018. Is this finally a fashion smartwatch without compromise? Wearing a stylish fashion branded smartwatch often led to compromise with many popular features such as GPS, wrist-based heart rate monitoring and NFC payments often missing in part or in their entirety. The Emporio Armani Connected 2018 promises the perfect blend of features and style by offering: Google's WearOS 2.0 GPS NFC for Google Pay (Alipay in China) Wrist-based Heart Rate Monitoring Waterproof up to 3 ATM 1-2 battery...

      • Meizu 16 amazing AnTuTu score and sample photos surface

        17th July 2018 We've heard a lot about the upcoming Meizu 16 and most of the information comes straight from the company's CEO. The Snapdragon 845 chipset is expected to power up the plus version of the device so today's AnTuTu benchmark score that's supposed to be from the Meizu 16 Plus doesn't come as a surprise. However, a quick search shows that the 291,866 points even beat Xiaomi's Black Shark gaming smartphone. We suspect that either the score isn't legitimate or the rumored vapor chamber does an amazing job. We doubt that the regular-sized version will get a vapor ch...
