We've seen lots of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S10, which will be among the first smartphone to launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor (at least in the United States). Rumors have hinted that there would be multiple S10 versions with an entry-level S10 packing 4GB of RAM, an S10 Plus with 6GB of RAM, S10 X with 6GB of RAM, and a version of the S10 with 12GB of RAM and 5G connectivity. A new rumor is now making the rounds, and this one is a bit scary. According to this new rumor, the S10 will launch with an insanely high price for the higher-end models. On the deep end of the S10... Read more...
Do you even game on your phone, bro? Sorry, we'll slap ourselves silly for the obnoxious comment, but it's actually a valid question. Some people primarily use their phone to snap pictures for posting on Facebook and Instagram, while others go old school and -- gasp -- make actual phone calls with their handset. The ASUS ROG Phone does both of those things with aplomb, but it was really built for playing games first and foremost. Purpose-built gaming phones are a relatively new thing, at least to the extent that they are starting to become popular. There have been attempts to capitalize on this... Read more...
We're learning more details about the upcoming Honor View 20, and it is confirmed to debut on January 22, 2019. Naturally, the device packs in a lot of hot tech and one of the most interesting things about it is how it does away with the maligned notch that most smartphone makers use and goes with a front selfie camera that lives inside a small punch hole in the screen. The screen has been dubbed "All-View," and one mystery that remains right now is precisely how large that screen will be. While we don't know what size the screen will be, its resolution has been tipped at 1080 x 2310,... Read more...
We've seen some excellent deals going on smartphones of late, particularly during Black Friday. Samsung has been dealing on its flagship Galaxy Note 9 dating back to October when it announced it was doubling the trade-in offer to lure buyers to upgrade to the Note 9. Amazon had a deal on the Galaxy Note 9 in early October that included a free Galaxy S3 Frontier smartwatch. Those deals were good, but for a lot of people, all they want is a healthy price cut. Today only via the Samsung store you can get a sweet $300 instant rebate on the Galaxy Note 9 good on both the 128GB or 512GB versions... Read more...
Corporate espionage is something that companies all over the world have to deal with. The latest major manufacturer to deal with the ramifications of corporate espionage is Samsung, as nine people have been indicted in South Korea for stealing Samsung's folding display trade secrets and selling them to China. Samsung showed off this folding display tech when it unveiled the folding Galaxy smartphone earlier this month. That smartphone is tipped to sell for as much as $2,500 and be limited in availability. While the people who sold the data can be brought to justice, there is no putting the genie... Read more...
Huawei, a major smartphone player in China that has had a tough time cracking the US market, posted a teaser image of an upcoming smartphone model that completely ditches the bezel, and that doesn't have a notch. Instead, Huawei appears to be taking a page from Samsung by implementing a punch-hole design for the front-facing camera. Click to Enlarge (Source: Weibo via Huawei) The image appears on Weibo, a popular microblogging site in China. It's basically just an outline of a smartphone that blends into the background, which itself is a picture of outer space. The translated text accompanying... Read more...
The FCC is a very good place for fans of technology to peruse documents and glean details on devices that haven't been released to the public. FCC images gave us one of the first looks at the RED Hydrogen One smartphone that many had dubbed vaporware before it officially launched. The FCC has now given up many details on the Moto G7 Play mid-range smartphone ahead of its official launch. Images show that the G7 Play will come in black or silver colors and has the familial looks of other devices Motorola has launched in recent years. The back of the smartphone has a single camera, and one of the... Read more...
Rumors about the Samsung folding smartphone, thought to be called the Galaxy F at this point, have been floating around for months. Samsung unveiled a prototype device earlier this month at a conference giving us a glimpse at what the phone would offer, but the device was hidden inside a bulky case to conceal the final design. A couple of weeks ago the device was tipped to launch in March 2019 and to carry a price tag of $1,750. That price would certainly make the phone too costly for many potential buyers. However, a new report has surfaced that claims the Galaxy F folding smartphone might be... Read more...
As we discovered last month after a thorough review, Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones are really good and we dubbed them as "Android Refined". And that camera! The camera is clearly one of the biggest attractions here, especially with the ability to take some of the best night shots we've ever seen. It's surprising, then, that even though the Pixel 3 and 3 XL only released last month, Best Buy is already applying one heck of a discount for Black Friday. That deal is $400 off, which is the kind of price slash that brings a top-end device down to or below the price point the likes... Read more...
OnePlus has garnered praise for its phones due to higher-end specifications that come at a price point much lower than other flagship Android devices. The OnePlus 6 isn't the latest smartphone from the company having launched in May of this year, but the company is offering up a very nice discount on the entire OnePlus 6 range that may make this the most appealing smartphone deal on Black Friday. OnePlus is selling the entire line of unlocked OnePlus 6 smartphones that will operate on AT&T, T-Mobile, or U.S. Cellular. The discount on all models of the smartphone is $100,... Read more...
Is it too early to speculate about the Galaxy S10, or even the Galaxy S11? Heck no! Display innovations loom right around the corner, and while Samsung is getting ready to announce a foldable smartphone—the Galaxy F or Galaxy X—it has other tricks up its sleeve. A recent patent application details some of what Samsung has in mind, and we hope they find their way into the next flagship Galaxy device. To be clear, the Galaxy F or Galaxy X (or whatever Samsung ends up calling it) is not a flagship phone. Instead, Samsung is toying around with a unique design and hoping that developers...

The notched screen Motorola One smartphone was announced back in late August of this year when it was confirmed that the mid-range device and its sibling, the One Power, would be launching in Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. At the time any potential availability in the States was unannounced. Motorola has now announced that the Motorola One will be coming to the U.S. and that the device will be sold exclusively through Best Buy locations for $399. Best Buy is taking pre-orders right now with a black or white version offered; official availability is set for November 9 online and November... Read more...
During the summer, leaks were surfacing that suggested Lenovo was here to save us all from the notched smartphone reality that we face today. That smartphone was called the Lenovo Z5, however, when the Z5 launched it indeed featured a notch shattering the dreams of people wanting to avoid that feature. Lenovo has now gone official with a new version of the Z5 called the Z5 Pro; this device lacks a notch and has a 95% screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone still has a front camera, but rather than being crammed into a notch, a sliding front camera module pops up behind the screen. Lenovo calls out... Read more...
Smartphone makers Samsung and Huawei have both aimed to be the first to market with a folding screen smartphone. However, a company called Royole has stepped around both of those major manufacturers and has launched a folding screen smartphone that is called the FlexPai. It looks more like a tablet than a smartphone and doesn’t appear to be very pocketable. Royole has published a video that makes the FlexPai look very interesting. However, the hands-on video of the tablet in the real world makes the device look decidedly less sexy. FlexPai appears in the hands-on video to be very bulky when... Read more...
