Nokia X6 with dual-lens Zeiss camera rumored to be unveiled on April 27

It appears that the rumor about a new Nokia X smartphone in the works at HMD Global was pretty accurate, as the Finnish company is gearing up for a major announcement. Chinese media reports HMD plans to reveal a new Nokia-branded smartphone on April 27, and the device will be named Nokia X6.

Yes, it will have the same name as the Symbian-powered Nokia X6 that made its debut on the market almost ten years ago, and just like its namesake, it will pack mid-tier specs.

Apparently, there will be two Nokia X6 versions available on the market, based on the chipset inside. One will be equipped …

Long story short, all the pieces of the puzzle collude towards a …

It is big, it is shiny, it is powerful, and it has over 90 megapixels at its disposal. That’s the Huawei P20 Pro in a nutshell, an we’ve been playing with it for the past week or so, evaluating every single one of its features as part of our in-depth review. Spoiler alert: it’s pretty good!

Yup, it is time for …

Huawei P20 Pro vs Pixel 2 XL vs Galaxy S9+ vs iPhone X: low-light camera shoot-out

Being what my colleagues would describe as a “photography aficionado” (a.k.a annoying camera geek), and someone who loved the 20MP monochrome cameras on the Huawei P9 and the P10, I was excited to learn that the Huawei P20 Pro will feature three cameras and a massive (for today’s smartphone standards) 1/1.7-inch sensor for better low-light performance. Not to mention the f/1.8 aperture, which albeit not the lowest f-stop number we’ve seen on a smartphone, is actually capable of capturing quite a bit more light than the competition, thanks to the increased surface area of the sensor.

So, …

Boomerang and 3D drawing camera modes are coming to Facebook Stories

Facebook has launched two new camera modes for its Stories feature. Those are ‘Boomerang’ for videos, and 3D drawing, which can be used in both videos and pictures.
In an attempt to bring its Stories feature on-par with Snapchat, Facebook has brought the popular ‘Boomerang’ video effect from Instagram. It allows you to shoot a burst of photos to then turn into a short looping video. Boomerang videos are usually quite entertaining and we are glad to see them added to Facebook.
The other new addition is what Facebook calls ‘3D drawing’ and is based …

Mini Galaxy S9+ with an iPhone X camera placement surfaces

Samsung is no stranger to offering weird variants of its phones for the Chinese market, where it is struggling to even be noticed among the sea of value-for-money Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi handset there. The latest case in point might be a… Galaxy S9 version with the S9+ dual camera set, but placed exactly where the dual kit of the iPhone X is situated – at the top left corner of the rear.

Other than that, uhm, peculiarity, the phone that has received certification by the Chinese version of the FCC regulator, has the same specs as the S9 specs, the same dimensions, and …

Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo appears with dual camera, AMOLED display

The Samsung Galaxy J7 Duo quietly appeared on the company’s Indian website earlier – perhaps prematurely, as the link to the page has already been taken down. Its specs and features indicate that we’re dealing with a low-priced smartphone, but also one with a trick or two up its sleeve.
On the outside, the Galaxy J7 Duo looks like a typical budget Samsung phone. The 5.5-inch screen is of the Super AMOLED variety, but a 720p resolution sounds underwhelming. Below the screen is the home button with a built-in fingerprint scanner, and on …

This Russian's collusion with an iPhone 7 proves that the best camera is the one you carry

The iPhone 7 is the gift that keeps on giving for Apple. Discounted down to $499 after the iPhone 8 launch, the previous iPhone model offers plenty of bang for the buck, such as a metal body, and a camera that is pretty great for its now upper midrange class. It should come to no surprise then, that the iPhone 7 has kept unusually high share in new iPhone sales, for the sake of the iPhone 8, and even iPhone X shipments.

One needs to look no further than the amazing “shot on iPhone” account of one Russian photog to understand why the 7 sells as much as …

Apple may jump on the triple camera bandwagon for the 2019 iPhone crop

Camera features and quality are now one of the main differentiators when it comes to modern phones, as otherwise they often mostly mimic specs and design from one another, and we aren’t talking glass bodies or notches only.

Nothing is off-limits when it comes to perceived camera superiority, as Huawei just proved with its triple-lens wonder, the P20 Pro, which sports a 40MP snapper underneath two 12MP shooters. Monochrome, zoom, and a huge 1/1.7″ kits combine for unparalleled experience, and, if history is any indication, other phone makers might follow suit with triple-camera …
