Official video teases Lenovo's IFA 2017 lineup, but there are no surprises

Lenovo is always present at two major European tech events, MWC (Mobile World Congress and IFA), but we’ve rarely seen the Chinese company launching new flagships at these trade fairs.

In any case, every time Lenovo’s booth at these exhibitions is quite large and we don’t doubt that will be the case at IFA 2017 too. However, this time Lenovo released a video that shows what IFA attendees will be able to see and try starting early September.

Lenovo’s Mirage Mixed Reality headset appears to be at the center of the video, but other products like the Lenovo …

The Google Pixel 2 has been certified by the FCC. Based on documentation found on the FCC website, it appears that the Pixel 2 will once again be built by HTC. The latter has its name all over the FCC filing. The paperwork also reveals that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will have a feature similar to the Edge Sense that is used on the HTC U11. With this feature, users can squeeze both sides of the phone together to open apps, control certain functions (like snap a picture, for example) and more. The FCC leak indicates that on the Pixel, this will be known as “Active Edge.”

Sony Xperia XZ1 design allegedly revealed: No surprises

Sony is readying the release of a new high-en Android smartphone allegedly called Xperia XZ1. The handset should succeed the Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs, and it seems that, as of today, we can take a good look at its design, thanks to some renders revealed by CompareRaja and @OnLeaks.

Apparently, the Xperia XZ1 largely resembles the Xperia XZs, being a metal-made device with a minimalistic, elegant design (albeit some people may not be crazy about the large top and bottom bezels). The Flash and sensors next to the phone’s rear camera now stand horizontally – as seen …

ZTE has recently gained a lot of popularity for offering some of the best budget handsets on the market right now. And while last year’ Axon 7 flagship did a lot to strengthen that image, ZTE has been consistently putting out a lot of other, lower-profile devices. And this is exactly what we’re witnessing today: the launch of the company’s latest ultra cheap device, known as the ZTE Blade Z Max.

Just like its predecessor, last year’s ZTE Zmax Pro, the Blade Z Max will be offered as a timed exclusive to MetroPCS, and will come at a pretty competitive price …

Samsung teases the Note 8 event with a “Do bigger things” video

It’s been almost a month since Samsung sent out an invitation for its Unpacked event to be held on the 23rd of August. The image back then depicted a Galaxy Note 8 silhouette with an S Pen pointing towards it. Pretty obvious who the star of the event is going to be, right?

Now, Sammy has posted a video on its YouTube channel, basically teasing the Note 8 further. The clip basically throws a number of inspirational words like “leap”, “innovate”, and “bigger” at us, then finishes up with the same silhouette from the invitation. The supplied text reminds us of the …

SonicSpy malware has made it to the Play Store carried by thousands of apps, can use phone camera, microphone, and more

Viruses are always a nasty thing to deal with and it has been so since the age of the first household PCs. However, malicious software, which aims to allow an attacker to steal your data or hijack your device for their purposes, is downright dangerous. Especially considering how much sensitive information we keep on our computers and our phones nowadays.

We generally feel safe and secure when downloading apps from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, since both marketplaces have strict rules and monitoring of each new product. However, every once in a while, …
