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 …

Apple may still be undecided on the iPhone 8's fingerprint sensor, less than 3 months from announcement

It might sound discouraging, but here it goes – according to analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company, Apple still hasn’t decided what fingerprint technology will utlimately end up in the new and coming iPhone. Mind you, we’re less than three months away from this year’s September keynote. If the rumor is true, this means the handset is anything but finalized. Thus, its retail launch could face a significant delay of as many as two months following the announcement.

Confident in his information, Arcuri has taken the new iPhone out of Cowen’s 46 million sales …

LG V30 slated for August 31 announcement just before IFA 2017, to cost ~$700 in South Korea

A recent report from Korean media outlet ETNews claims that LG will unveil its next top-tier handset, the LG V30, at the upcoming IFA trade show which will take place in Berlin, Germany, from September 1 to September 6. Supposedly, the phone will become official on August 31, just a day before IFA kicks off, which is not unusual at all — such high-profile phone announcements usually happen just before a major expo kicks off so that they get as much media coverage as possible. 
If we judge by LG V20’s arrival last year, which also coincided …

Apple store is down, new iPad Pro announcement likely to blame

Few are the instances when the unavailability of a service could be seen as a reason for excitement. The Apple Store going down is one of them. The reason? In most cases, that’s a solid indication that new hardware is about to be introduced.
Is it a coincidence that WWDC 2017 kicks off in less than an hour? Most certainly not! Rumor has it that Apple has new hardware to announce at the show, and the opening keynote would be the perfect time for the unveiling to be made. 
Chances are that we’ll witness the announcement of two new iPad models, …

Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple's 10.5-inch iPad Pro is prime for a June announcement at WWDC 2017

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has a fresh prediction in regards to the upcoming (allegedly) 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The Apple Nostradamus thinks the tablet in question will be formally announced at the company’s WWDC event in June. It sounds like a logical probability, although Apple doesn’t have much of a track record with device announcements at its developers conference.

Then again, this 10.5-inch iPad could be a little extra special with a design that reportedly features super-thin screen bezels. So Apple might be interested in showing it around at its big event. With sluggish …

OnePlus 5 gets teased by CEO, an announcement seems imminent

OnePlus 5 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the summer and rightfully so. The Chinese company always managed to surprise customers with its “flagship killers, ” and there’s a high chance it will happen again this year.

The next top-tier smartphone coming from the Android OEM is the OnePlus 5, as we’ve reported many times in the past. The company is expected to skip the number 4 from the name of one of its products since it symbolizes “death” in the Western culture.

So, the OnePlus 5 has been recently teased by CEO Pete Lau, who posted an artsy picture of the device. Unfortunately, …

Moto C and Moto C Plus certified in Russia ahead of official announcement

It’s no secret that Motorola Mobility has had its difficulties in recent times. Taken over by Google in 2011 before being passed onto Lenovo three years later, things looked ominous when the China-based company laid off a large chunk of its Motorola workforce last fall. But with the Moto Z series having shown flair in the flagship arena, things are looking up, and the likes of the Moto G and E series have continually demonstrated appeal to lower-budget audiences. With the latter in mind, recent reports have indicated that dirt-cheap Moto C is in the pipeline …
