The Essential Phone will be showcased at a “First Look” event on August 25

We only know that the Essential Phone actually exists, but no one can buy one yet. Even though Andy Rubin promised its smartphone will be launched on the market one or two weeks after being officially unveiled, it looks like the Essential Phone has a two months delay.

A couple of days ago, Essential’s officials confirmed their smartphone is already in full mass-production and that they plan to announce when it will go on sale next week.

Moto's Gamepad mod to cost $79, available starting August 25 exclusively through Verizon

Motorola’s Gamepad mod is one of the most obvious application of the company’s mods concept, taking advantage of the low-latency input while also acting as a handy battery pack. So it’s a bit surprising just how late it’s making its debut: we’ve already seen the release of the Moto Z2 Force, the second flagship in the mod-compatible Z line of phones, but the Gamepad has still not been made available for purchase, despite being announced all the way back in February.

This will change soon, however, as the new mod now has an official release date: …

What does this really mean for T-Mobile customers who own Windows Phone handsets? Well, after August 25, they will be forced to use the carrier’s website to check their accounts instead of the mobile …

More Moto G5S Plus photos leak ahead of possible July 25 announcement

Just a week after noted leakster Evan Blass shared details about the Moto G5S Plus, two live images of the handset surfaced online. They give us a good “in-action” look at the upcoming smartphone, even if the latter is still covered in stickers and obviously still being prepared for a soon-to-be reveal.

According to Blass’ report and all the leaked evidence supporting his claims, the reported changes from the original Moto G5 Plus are both cosmetic and technological. For starters, the smartphone is now made of aluminum, no longer making do with a plastic back. What’s more, a dual camera …
