Samsung is making a high-end flip phone that looks like a Galaxy S8, but there’s a catch

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

You might not see many (if any at all) flip phones around these days, but that does not mean that the form factor is dead.
In fact, Samsung is preparing to release a brand new high-end flip phone that features Galaxy S8-like styling. At least according to these leaked pictures that portray what looks a nearly finalized device. Keep in mind, though, that Samsung has not officially confirmed the existence of the model just yet.
The new Samsung flip phone carries model number SM-G9298, and the particular model pictured here …

LG V30 schematic leaks: Dual rear camera remains a staple, but no sign of a secondary display

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

With the LG V30 slated for an August 30 announcement, it’s only natural for more and more leaks and rumors to start popping out. The latest one is what’s claimed to be an excerpt from the phone’s manual and gives us a rather nondescript look at LG’s soon-to-come handset.

It doesn’t take a genius to spot the similarities between the V30 schematic and the company’s G6 flagship – we’ve got the same slim bezels all-around the front, with the top and bottom one a bit more pronounced, a dual-camera at the rear, and last but not least, what seems to be a 9:18 FullVision display. …

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

Industry sources have been tipping that Apple might move to OLED for good, and is looking to diversify with LG as a supply alternative to Samsung, fronting it no less than $2.7 billion as an advance payment for securing a production line dedicated entirely to iPhone displays, starting in 2019. Where there is smoke, there is fire, and now famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities is confirming in his own turn that Apple is indeed working with LG on OLED panel supplies, and sooner.

According to Gundotra, the main reason Android smartphones can’t have great cameras, as opposed to the iPhone 7, would be the fact that it’s open source and must remain “neutral to all parties.”

Here is the problem: It’s Android. Android is an open source (mostly) operating system that has to be neutral to all parties. This sounds …

The Moto G5S Plus shows off its three color variants in leaked renders

by News on July 31, 2017, no comments

Ever since the Moto Z2 Force Edition’s launch event, the company’s other devices we were expecting to see unveiled there, the Moto X4, G5S and G5S Plus have seemed more like mythical beasts than actual, upcoming products. And while we’ve heard of a possible release window for the former, the latter duo is still something of an enigma. But while we wait, the ever reliable serial leakster Evan Blass has come to the rescue with a new set of renders of the G5S Plus to sate our appetite.
