The next big battle in the smartphone world is shaping up to be which manufacturer is first to market with a smartphone that folds. Samsung was first to start talking about a device with a folding screen and has promised that the folding screen device will launch by the end of 2018. Samsung has said that the big benefit of this folding screen smartphone would be a device with a tablet-like screen in an easily pocketable form factor. The catch is that the price of Samsung's device is expected to be high due to limited screen suppliers. A person allegedly familiar with Huawei's plans claims it isn’t... Read more...
At the start of the month we were able to get our mitts on the slick new LG V40 ThinQ smartphone and put it through its paces; we found the smartphone to be a good device and recommended it with one of the biggest downsides being its $949 price tag.

Smartphone makers seem intent on finding out exactly how much money they can get away with charging for their flagship phones, with several models now topping the $1,000 mark. Traditionally, wireless carriers would let customers spread the cost over a period of 12 or 24 months. T-Mobile is taking things a step further, however, with a with new 36-month installment plan. Being able to break up payments for a pricey smartphone over the course of three years can translate into a lower monthly phone bill. Buyers obviously aren't saving anything in the long run—a $1,000 smartphone is still $1,000,... Read more...

The smartphone camera wars are just starting to heat up. First there were dual rear cameras, then we starting seeing triple cameras (a la the Huawei P20 Pro).

Gadget leaker Evan Blass has provided us with a look at both the front and rear of the device, and you can clearly see three rear cameras arranged horizontally and an LED flash.

The next big thing in TVs is certainly OLED sets with screens that are much brighter and offer better image quality than LED technologies (not to mention better black levels). The concern for many of the people who have researched OLED TVs the higher occurrences of burn-in compared to LED-baclkit TVs. The folks over at RTINGS performed real-life burn-in testing on LG OLED C7 TVs to get to the bottom of OLED burn-in. In the test, the publication purchased six of the sets and set up an accelerated aging test to see what type of content was most likely to lead to burn-in and how fast it can happen.... Read more...

The LG G7 One is very similar to the LG G7 ThinQ that was launched earlier this year (read the HotHardware review here), but it replaces the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with an older Snapdragon...

Motorola, on the other hand, will bring 5G functionality to the Moto Z3 courtesy of the 5G Moto Mod in early 2019. Is anyone else willing to step up to the 5G plate when it comes to smartphone?
