Alleged LG V30 cases might be giving away some design clues

Online mobile accessories retailer MobileFun last month gave us a possible look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 thanks to several cases it was taking pre-orders for. Renders showing the Galaxy Note 8 inside these cases provided legitimate looking images of the phablet. While the device has not been released yet, several subsequent leaks matched the exact renders found on the MobileFun site. 

Now, it is the LG V30’s turn to possibly appear inside cases that MobileFun is taking pre-orders on. The first one is a clear Rearth Ringke Fusion LG V30 case, and is priced at $19.49. The second …


Photo compares the front panel from the Galaxy S8+ to an alleged panel from the Galaxy Note 8


A self proclaimed Samsung fan posted on Twitter the other day, an image that shows the glass screen from the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 next to the panel that was used on the Samsung Galaxy S8+. If these are legitimate displays, you can see for yourself the differences between the two handsets. The Galaxy S8+ features more rounded corners while the Galaxy Note 8 has a boxier form factor.

The high-end phablet, now rumored to be unveiled on August 23rd, appears to carry a screen that could be 6.3-inches to 6.5-inches based on the comparison between the two panels. The Galaxy S8+ …

Alleged Google Pixel XL (2017) design revealed: Thin bezels are in

While it may have been working on three different new Pixel phones for this year, Google will ultimately release only two models – at least if the latest rumors turn out to be correct. These two models should be a 5-inch Pixel to directly succeed the original Pixel of 2016, and a larger handset codenamed Taimen.

Possibly called Google Pixel XL 2017, or maybe Pixel 2 XL, the Taimen is – according to Android Police, a 6-inch smartphone that’s manufactured by LG and resembles the device seen in the render below.

Android Police is “exceptionally confident” that the renders below reveal …

Alleged Galaxy Note 8 promo poster shows us its dual-cameras, rear fingerprint scanner

There’s a new Galaxy Note 8 leak on the block, and this one’s pretty saucy.

A purported promotional poster of Samsung’s upcoming handset has been unearthed, giving us a sneak peek at the possible final design of the Note 8. There are dual cameras at the back, which falls in line with what has been expected for this year’s phablet, as well as a rear-positioned fingerprint scanner at the rear, which coincides with the latest news on the matter. 
Apparently, Samsung has been unable to come with a workaround for a brightness …

Alleged OnePlus 5 teaser shows off horizontal dual camera setup in back

Originally discovered on weibo, an alleged teaser for the OnePlus 5 was posted today by internet tipster slashleaks. The image shows what is claimed to be the OnePlus 5’s back cover. Unlike other recently disseminated images claiming to show the phone, this one has the dual cameras on the back positioned horizontally. Additionally, the placement of the camera module is off-center in the upper left corner of the rear, just under the upper antenna line. Another such line is found on the bottom right of the rear. A lozenge shaped flash unit appears adjacent to the camera module, and the OnePlus logo …

Alleged iPhone 8 case renders show off vertical camera setup, no home button

Leaks of the upcoming iPhone 8 are becoming something of an everyday occurrence now, and from what we’ve seen so far, Apple seems to have already settled on a design: a 5.2-inch device with no physical front button and a vertical dual-camera setup on the back. And like it or not, a couple of new alleged renders of the device shows exactly that, but this time with protective cases wrapped around its frame.

The images, if based on the real thing, show the iPhone 8 in a number of angles, revealing a design very much in line with what we’ve seen from Apple …

Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 8 front panel revealed in video

The Galaxy Note 8 is the next big thing coming from Samsung, literally. The company’s flagship smartphone is expected to go official in late summer, slightly ahead of IFA 2017 tech exhibition.

Since we’re just a couple of months away from the official reveal, it’s quite to start talking about the unannounced phablet. The first credible information about the Galaxy Note 8 went public late last week when an image of a supposed dummy unit leaked online.

Today, we have another leak that has Samsung’s flagship in the center. It appears that the front panel …

Alleged Nokia 9 gets benchmarked, performing on-par with other flagships

We’ve already seen some leaked photos that allegedly showed us the Nokia 9, encased in a “black box” that was hiding most of its design. However, what we didn’t know is how the handset will actually perform.

This might have just changed, as a device that is allegedly the Nokia 9 has been spotted in the database of the popular smartphone benchmarking app, Geekbench. Admittedly, the tests were done with an older version of the app, namely Geekbench 3, while most users have long migrated to the latest Geekbench 4, but if it’s the real thing, its results are not less impressive.

The listing …

Alleged HTC U 11 renders show a glossy red version of the phone

HTC U 11 – this is (likely) the name of the brand new flagship smartphone that HTC will announce later this month, on May 16. The company already released a few teasers showcasing bits and parts of the U 11, while also indirectly confirming a rumor: the new handset features a squeezeable frame (reportedly, this will be called Edge Sense).

Before HTC gets the chance to officially present its next generation flagship, it seems that we can already take a look at it – or at least at renders that reportedly show what the real device will look like. Revealed by …

Alleged protective case for the iPhone 8 pops up in photo, reaffirms some rumors

So, word on the street is that, this September, Apple will be unveiling not two but three new iPhones — the successors of the current models will be named iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and a new design will come, which we currently call the iPhone 8 (some rumors suggest iPhone X or iPhone Edition). The latter is expected to have an all-screen design, like the ones we’ve seen on the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8, which just launched.

We’ve been seeing some leaks regarding the mysterious iPhone 8 for the past couple of weeks — one suggested that the TouchID fingerprint …
