We’re roughly a week away from when Google is set to unveil its new Pixel 5 flagship, and the lesser Pixel 4a (5G). However, unlike previous years, Google is not using a top-of-the-line Qualcomm SoC for its flagship, which means that we won’t see the Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865+. The folks over at WinFuture have managed to not only grab confirmed specs for the upcoming Pixel 5, but they also have obtained new renders of the smartphone. The star of the show of course will be Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 765G SoC, which will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The inclusion of the Snapdragon 765G also means that the Google 5 is technically capable... Read more...
After plenty of “leaks” over the past few weeks, the LG Wing is now official. The Wing is the first product to come from LG’s Explorer Project, which aims to “discover yet unexplored concepts” to help advance the smartphone industry. In the case of the Wing, we’re looking at dual screens. There’s a top screen that swivels revealing a smaller display underneath. This is a drastic departure from the flexible folding displays that we’ve seen on devices like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 or the dual folding displays we’ve seen with the Microsoft Surface Duo. The primary display that you will be interacting with the most measures 6.8-inches across... Read more...
If you've had your eyes on the non-nonsense competence and value of the Google Pixel 4a, but want a little bit more power and 5G connectivity, then we've got some good news for you. It looks as though the upcoming Pixel 5 flagship and its cheaper Pixel 4a (5G) counterpart might be launching later this month; slightly earlier than then the October timeframe we were originally expecting. This information comes from wireless carriers Vodafone Germany, which says that both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a (5G) will launch on September 25th. This date is also 5 days earlier than what gadget leaker Jon Prosser revealed back on August 19th. Vodafone also says that the Pixel 5 and... Read more...
Earlier this year, we began hearing rumblings of a new smartphone, codenamed Wing, from LG with a rotating display. At the time, we were presented with a concept render of the device (seen above), which showed a swiveling 5.8-inch primary display that was joined by a secondary 4-inch display.  Today, however, we’re getting an even better look at the LG Wing. A new video has surfaced which shows the LG Wing in action. The clip is just over 10 seconds in length, and shows the smartphone in its extended position, revealing both its 5.8-inch and 4-inch displays.  We see the smartphone on a windshield mount with the primary display in a vertical orientation showing navigational...

We've got quite a bit of news to present to you from the Google Pixel front today, as information on both the upcoming flagship Pixel 5 and its cheaper Pixel 4 (5G) sibling have leaked. The first bit of info comes in the form of a single photograph that shows the two smartphones side-by-side, but only from the back. In the image above, the Pixel 5 is allegedly the smaller device on the left, while the Pixel 4A (5G) is on the right. It's rather peculiar that the Pixel 4a (5G) is the larger of the two, but from what we can tell, both have two cameras on the rear like the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Unfortunately, there are no live shots of the phones from the front. However, based... Read more...
Google’s new Pixel 4a mid-range smartphone has been well-received thanks to its low price ($349), excellent camera, and respectable overall performance. As a result, many are looking forward to what the flagship Pixel 5 will offer when it is released this fall. However, a new leak is alleging that the use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC won’t be the only compromise for this flagship smartphone. A respected source of previous Pixel rumors, the Pixel 5 will only have a 3,080 mAh battery. For comparison, the already-discontinued Pixel 4 XL features a much larger 3,700 mAh battery. According to the source, @ImjustSayingJC, Google thinks that it can achieve greater efficiency... Read more...
Google's Pixel 4a finally launched last week after a months-long delay, and is a solid entry in the mid-range smartphone market. The Pixel 4a offers a compelling mix of an excellent camera, good display, respectable battery life and a budget-friendly price tag of $349. However, Google has yet to reveal its Pixel 5 flagship and has only confirmed that it will be coming this fall along with the Pixel 4a (5G). But that hasn't stopped the Pixel 5 from showing up at AI Benchmark, and its appearance confirms previous reporting that we've featured on the smartphone. According to the AI Benchmark listing, the Pixel 5 is rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and 8GB of RAM. For... Read more...
After months of leaks and recent "feature drops" from OnePlus executives, the OnePlus Nord has officially been announced. Given that most of the major details about the phone have already been revealed (90Hz display, quad rear camera, dual selfie cameras, Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G), today's unveil was a chance for OnePlus to really flesh out the other specifics of device. For starters, we now know that the 6.44-inch OLED display has an aspect ratio of 20:9 with a resolution of 2400x1080. The display doesn't have curved edges like the OnePlus 8 in an effort to reduce costs. The 90Hz display also houses a fast fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. The Snapdragon 765G processor... Read more...
OnePlus has been slowly dripping information on its upcoming Nord mid-range smartphone. The company is looking to hit the ground running with its first entry into the sector in years, and co-founder Carl Pei has provided some insight into (and images of) the smartphone prior to its release. In an interview with Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), Pei explained that the mid-range market is often seen as an "afterthought", as the primary drive of the industry as a whole is to "focus all of their time and energy on creating a great flagship [smartphone]". With the introduction of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G, Pei feels that now is the time to re-enter the market with a great mid-range smartphone that... Read more...
Earlier this week, we learned a bit more about OnePlus' upcoming Nord mid-range smartphone. Specifically, we got to see a shot of the retail box, along with a quick glimpse of the smartphone from the rear revealing an elongated camera pod. Today, well respected gadget leaker Evan Blass has provided renders of the OnePlus Nord from both the front and the back, which pretty much confirms the entire design of the smartphone. While the renders show the Nord enclosed in a clear case, we can still make out the most important external features of the smartphone. For starters, up front we can see dual selfie cameras, which is a rarity these days in the Android realm. Previous rumors have suggested... Read more...
With flagship Android smartphones powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC easily hitting the $1,000 price point, many people are looking to cheaper alternatives that won't break the bank. Luckily, OnePlus has just a phone in the works that's called the Nord. OnePlus got official with the name of the smartphone earlier this week, and now exec Carl Pei is giving a few additional details on the mid-range smartphone. The OnePlus X was the company's first foray into the mid-range market, and launched at a $299 price point. But the company soon got away from that market as its set its sight squarely on flagship territory.  In an interview with TechRadar, Pei stated that his company... Read more...
The rumors surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel 5 flagship smartphone family have died down in recent weeks, as the phones have been drowned out by the uncertainty surrounding the Pixel 4a. Well, there is some new news coming to us today regarding the Pixel 5 XL, and it has thrown us for a bit of a loop. Alleged case renders for the Pixel 5 XL have leaked, and they show a device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, which was missing on the current-generation Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. In addition, we see a smaller, trapezoidal notch at the top of the display instead of the circular cut-out destined for the Pixel 4a. But perhaps the biggest change is the adoption of a rear optical fingerprint sensor... Read more...
If you want to purchase a new [current generation] Samsung smartphone with 5G in the United States right now, your cheapest option is the Galaxy S20, which is priced at a hefty $999. However, Samsung is offering up a cheaper alternative now with the incoming Galaxy A71 5G, which will be priced at a much more palatable $599. The $400 price difference doesn't mean that the Galaxy A71 5G is some barebones device either; it's actually pretty well equipped for its class. The smartphone doesn’t use an Exynos SoC like some of Samsung’s cheaper phones, and instead uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 765G has a higher GPU clock than the Snapdragon 765... Read more...
OnePlus Z information has been leaking at a rapid clip in recent weeks, and today's latest reveal brings a few of the missing pieces surrounding the launch of the mid-range smartphone. India has emerged as a hotbed of activity in the low-cost smartphone realm, with major smartphone OEMs pouring resources into the country. OnePlus is no exception, and will reportedly launch the OnePlus Z in India on July 10th. According to Android Central's sources, this is a "tentative" date, but barring any major hiccups between now and then, that's likely when we should expect to see what smartphone. One other previously unknown surrounding the OnePlus Z is its price, which will be critical to... Read more...
There's no question that OnePlus is hopping back on the mid-range bandwagon after a half-decade absence, as the move was finally confirmed last month by company founder and CEO Pete Lau. “We can look at it as having a more affordable product offering,” said Lau at the time. “But all products that still remain up to the OnePlus standard… and through this enabling, more people to have access to OnePlus products." While we know many of the alleged details surrounding the smartphone, one of unknown pieces to the puzzle was which processor the company would use for the OnePlus Z (the rumored named for the mid-range smartphone). Rumors have suggested the... Read more...
Flagship SoCs like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 might get all the attention due to their extreme performance and high-end features, but the mid-range is often were most of the action (and sales) take place. It's for this reason that Qualcomm is delivering a performance boost for its OEM customers with the arrival of the new Snapdragon 768G. This is yet another variant of the Snapdragon 765, which was first announced back in early December. The Snapdragon 765 features an octa-core Kryo 475 CPU and an Adreno 620 GPU. The Snapdragon 765G ratcheted up the performance with a higher clocked version of the Adreno 620, delivering a 20 percent uplift in graphics performance. The Snapdragon... Read more...
Last week, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms that will power 5G smartphones in 2020. Surprisingly, the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G received the most attention due to that fact that they 1) include 5G integrated directly into the SoC and 2) will allow vastly cheaper 5G-enabled smartphones to come to market. Today, Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi is delivering on the promise of value-laden 5G-enabled smartphones with the Redmi K30 5G. This the first smartphone to be announced with the Snapdragon 765G, which is the gaming-centric version of Qualcomm's new mid-range 5G SoC. The Redmi K30 5G will pack in 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM...

The smartphone industry is at the beginning of a transition period. For years, we've been spoiled by 4G LTE wireless connectivity and its relatively ubiquity, but 5G networks are starting to popup around the globe. There were a handful of devices that shipped in 2019 with 5G connectivity (Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, etc.), but the big boom in 5G will occur in 2020. The vast majority of Android smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, and the company this week announced two new SoCs that are 5G-enabled: the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform and Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platform. But the way they go about providing 5G is quite different. Snapdragon... Read more...
We've already brought you an overview of Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform, but the chip giant also has two "lesser" chips on deck for the mid-range to premium smartphone markets. The two chips are the Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G; the latter of which is a gaming-oriented SoC. Like the Snapdragon 865 + Snapdragon X55 solution that we've already discussed, the Snapdragon 765/765G are 5G-enabled solutions, but they are superior to the flagship SoC in one critical aspect. Whereas the Snapdragon 865 requires a separate 5G modem that increases physical space and power requirements for OEMs, the Snapdragon 765/765G have an integrated 5G modem. In this case,...

It's that time of the year again; Qualcomm is holding an event in sunny Hawaii, and it's announcing a new flagship SoC for mobile devices. But Qualcomm hasn't just announced the Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform -- which was expected -- but it also announced the Snapdragon 765/765G Mobile Platforms. As you might expect for SoCs that will be powering the bulk of flagship Android smartphones in 2020, all three SKUs bring 5G connectivity to the table. Given that this is just Day 1 of Qualcomm's 3-day tech extravaganza, the company is being rather light on details for now. What we do know at this time, however, is that the Snapdragon 865 is being billed as the true "flagship" SoC, and that it includes... Read more...
I've always wanted to own a convertible, and despite not having a roof, the new McLaren Elva does not fall into that category. So, I guess I'll pass on buying one. I will, however, happily accept one as a gift, if anyone out there fancies purchasing a nearly $1.7 million supercar as a present. Options cost extra, of course, such as tacking on a 24-ct gold engine bay heat shield. This is not a so called grocery-getter by any stretch. It falls way on the other end of the spectrum, though you could certainly get to the supermarket and back in quick fashion with the Elva's 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine harnessing 804 horsepower. Just be sure to pack a set of goggles—a windshield is not included... Read more...
