LG V35 ThinQ with Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM shows up in alleged spec sheet

An apparent spec sheet for LG’s upcoming V35 ThinQ has leaked online. The South Korean company is currently expected to launch its latest LG V30 variant towards the beginning of summer and, after it recently received its official certifications in the US and Russia, a new spec list gives a glimpse at what can be expected from the device.

Looking at the specs in question, the 6-inch OLED display featured on both the LG V30 and V30S ThinQ will be making yet another return with the same resolution of 2880 x 1440p. Perhaps in a more interesting move, however, the new smartphone looks set to …

Alleged iPhone SE 2 screen smiles for the camera

For some months now, fans of Apple’s tiniest smartphone — the iPhone SE — have been wondering if there will be an upgrade available for them. An alleged iPhone SE 2 has popped up in various rumors now and again, but Apple has shown no intention of launching such a device, at least not for now.

The latest from the rumor mill suggests that there will be an SE 2 with an all-screen front and a notch with Face ID — much like the iPhone X, but in a smaller form.

Yesterday, case maker Olixar shared some images with schematics showing the iPhone SE 2’s shapes. Today, we get to see an actual …

Alleged Galaxy Note 9 render shows that it looks like more of the same

While the Galaxy S line is Samsung’s flagship family of smartphones, it’s the Galaxy Note devices that powerusers usually look forward to. Announced early in the second half of each year, the Notes sport the latest-and-greatest hardware Sammy could cram into them paired with the signature S Pen stylus, which is pretty much unrivaled in the smartphone sector.

We’ve already had a few leaks about the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 but this latest one claims to show us how exactly it’s going to look. And, disappointingly to some, it appears that Samsung doesn’t intend to change much about the new …

First alleged LG G7 camera sample leaks out

A leaker with a good track record, Roland Quandt, has gotten his hands on what is claimed to be a sample from the camera of LG’s upcoming flagship, the G7 ThinQ. The EXIF data is for one LM-G710 handset, which was just certified in Korea, indicating that an announcement must be very near.

The image is with the rumored 16MP resolution of the dual cameras on the back of the G7, and has the following data in the original’s EXIF details: F/1.6 – ISO 50 – 4.03 mm – 1/379. 
Long story short, all the pieces of the puzzle collude towards a …

Starbucks faces social media backlash over tepid apology for alleged racial profiling


Cell phone video captured a bewildered man at Starbucks this week asking Philadelphia police why they were arresting his two black friends. 

Onlookers said there didn’t appear to be a reason for the arrest. The men were simply sitting at the coffee shop, waiting for their business associate — the aforementioned bewildered man — to show up before placing their orders.

Now, Starbucks has confirmed that the incident was a mistake, and “are disappointed this led to an arrest.”

The three-sentence apology, however, is short on details or a even just a blunt admission of guilt. The company did not reply to Mashable’s request for more details at the time of this publication.  Read more…

Alleged Huawei Mate 20 with Kirin 980 chipset on deck sets a new AnTuTu record

Huawei just recently launched its latest flagships, the P20 , P20 Pro, and the super-premium P20 Pro Porsche Design, but it seems that the grand Chinese company is already prepping its next emboldening move. Word on the street is the successor to last year’s Huawei Mate 10 just got benchmarked on popular synthetic benchmark app AnTuTu.

It would seem that the Huawei Mate 20, which is most likely coming this autumn, has reportedly scored a truly mind-boggling score of 356,918 points, which sets it ahead of just about any device right now. This performance jump could potentially be linked to …

Alleged Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 may be unveiled in late April

Following the success of the Star Wars variant of the OnePlus 5T last year, another limited edition OnePlus smartphone is expected to be unveiled later this month. If we are to believe the teaser trailer attached to this article, OnePlus may have already teamed up with Marvel Studios for the launch of an Avengers-themed smartphone.

It wouldn’t make sense for OnePlus to rebrand one of its older flagships for this partnership, which means an Avengers-themed OnePlus 6 is quite possible. Since the Avengers: Infinity War movie is scheduled to hit theaters on April 27, we believe there’s a high …

Alleged OnePlus 6 price leaks out, but might be far from accurate

A newly-leaked image that allegedly reveals the price of the upcoming OnePlus 6 might give OnePlus fans a serious scare. According to the image (seen below), the OnePlus 6 should cost $749 – significantly more than any previous OnePlus flagship phone. Reportedly, this is the price of the handset’s variant with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space.

Even if this leaked image is genuine, it’s likely not …
