Picture allegedly shows OLED panels for the 6.1-inch low-end Apple iPhone 9

Even though Ming-Chi Kuo no longer covers Apple, would you really bet against the man who was the best darn analyst to ever cover the company? As you might remember, Kuo expects Apple to unveil a trio of new iPhone models this September; all of them will feature an edge-to-edge-screen, a notch, the TrueDepth Camera and Face ID. According to the former KGI Securities analyst, Apple will introduce an iPhone X sequel (iPhone Xs?)with a 5.8-inch OLED screen (like the current model), a premium iPhone Xs Plus with a 6.5-inch OLED panel, and a lower priced iPhone 9 with a 6.1-inch LCD display.

Check out these photos allegedly snapped by a Huawei P20 series phone

On March 27th, Huawei will unveil its new P20 line which consists of three models. There is the Huawei P20, the Huawei P20 Lite and the Huawei P20 Pro. The biggest buzz has been reserved for the P20 Pro because of its triple camera setup on back. The P20 and P20 Lite both sport two cameras on back. And speaking of cameras, Exif data reveals a series of photographs that was taken by one of the three P20 models.

Motorola allegedly scraps the Moto X5, development of Moto Mods limited to only a few

Remember the news about the Moto X4 sequel that Motorola might launch at some point this year? We even had a picture of a prototype unit, so the leak was looking pretty solid at that time.

Unfortunately, it appears that Lenovo has decided to scrap the Moto X5 and not launch another X series phone going forward. AndroidPolice reports that despite the fact that Lenovo reduced Motorola’s workforce considerably, it’s still not enough to turn make the smartphone business profitable yet.

The canceling of the Moto X5 is the direct result of Lenovo’s strategy to cut costs. Moreover, Lenovo …

Screenshot allegedly reveals specs for the Xiaomi Mi 7

Last month, we told you that Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is likely to attend the MWC trade show in Barcelona that begins on February 26th. Xiaomi is rumored to be unveiling a couple of new phones at the show. One is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s. This would be a revised version of last year’s sequel to the Xiaomi Mi Mix. The latter was the first phone to show off the nearly bezel-less look that has become so popular these days.

The Mi Mix 2s would replace the Snapdragon 835 chipset used on the Mi Mix 2, with the new Snapdragon 845 mobile platform. In addition, the rear camera will feature Sony’s …

Galaxy S9 and S9+ batteries allegedly revealed… don't get too excited

A large battery — that’s every phone owner’s dream. But manufacturers also want to make their devices slim and elegant. So, there’s a fine balance that needs to be struck — make the device thin enough but don’t sacrifice too much of its battery life. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is a perfect example of why one should be careful with this balance — the device had too small a compartment for its battery, which was sort of the general reason behind the whole exploding Note debacle back in 2016.

So, with the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Galaxy Note 8, Samsung played it safe and didn’t go with crazy capacities …

Motorola Moto Z3 and Z3 Play allegedly leak out; is that a Samsung Galaxy-like dual curve screen?

Lenovo and Motorola Mobility seem to be preparing an
important design overhaul for most of the Moto phones that are scheduled to be
launched this year. After seeing renders allegedly presenting the Moto X5 and
the Moto G6 family, we can now also take a look at what appears to be the Moto
Z3 series – including a regular Moto Z3, and a Moto Z3 Play.


Like the Moto X5 and G6, the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play have
pretty thin bezels, which means Motorola is ready to ditch the not-so-modern
design employed by last year’s Moto Z2 Force and Z2 Play.


According to Droid-life, both the Z3 and …

Images from Samsung patent application allegedly show the foldable Samsung Galaxy X

Just the other day, we passed along some more information about the foldable Samsung Galaxy X. One report stated that the device will look like a phone at rest, and when unfolded, it becomes a tablet with a 7.3-inch screen.

Samsung Galaxy S9 case render allegedly shows off some of the new flagship's looks

A render of a Samsung Galaxy S9 case from Ghostek just might give away enough information about the 2018 flagship model to make you start salivating. Unveiling the handset on the day before the MWC keynote takes place in Barcelona is a tradition for the Galaxy S that had to be broken this year. If Samsung returns to that tradition, a February 25th introduction could take place. But Sammy would love to get a quick jump on Apple and its other rivals by introducing the Samsung Galaxy S9 in January.

The render shows a major change to the positioning of the rear-facing fingerprint scanner, …
