The Alcatel 3v launches in the US: dual camera, 18:9 display, $150

The Alcatel 3v was introduced earlier this year in Europe and we got some hands-on time with it, but had no idea when it would be launching in the States. Well, we’ve got official word that it’s coming to the US next week, for the super-competitive price of $149.99! What does that get you? Here’s a quick reminder:

The Alcatel 3v is super-shiny, with a metal-and-glass build that makes it look no less premium than much more expensive flagships. On its front, we have a display with the contemporary 18:9 aspect ratio — it’s tall and narrow — with a 1080 x 2160 …

OnePlus 6 dual camera gets shown off in first photo samples

OnePlus is known for making great phones with great specs at great prices, but as we all know by know, specs don’t quite paint a complete picture. Case in point: the last couple of OnePlus phones couldn’t quite keep up with their high-end competitors when it came to one key aspect – camera performance. Will the new OnePlus 6 deliver results to match heavyweights like the iPhone X and the Galaxy S9? We don’t know yet, and we won’t know until we put the OnePlus 6 through a proper camera comparison.
Until then, however, we have a full gallery of OnePlus 6 photo samples …

ZTE patents another smartphone with dual notch display design

Although ZTE seems to be hit with restrictions from all sides, the Chinese company has no issues in patenting new products that might or might not see the light of day.

The newest patent ZTE filed at China’s State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) reveals an unusual smartphone design that features not one, but two notches – one at the top, and another one at the bottom.

It’s the second patent for a dual-notch smartphone that ZTE filed in China, so the handset maker could be very serious about this specific design. Even though the notch is a rather controversial feature, ZTE seems …

BlackBerry KEYone sequel "Athena" appears on Chinese regulator's site with dual cameras on back

Earlier this month, we showed you some renders allegedly revealing the look of the BlackBerry KEYone sequel codenamed “Athena.” At first glance, this phone appears to be very similar to the current model. But a closer look reveals sharper squared-off corners on top, an extra textured button on the side, and a dual-camera setup on back. Today, the “Athena” was spotted on the site of China’s telecommunications regulator TENAA. This is the agency, similar to the FCC in the states, that must approve all handsets used in the country.

The TENAA certification includes four pictures of the device …

Nokia X leaked live pictures confirm the notch, dual rear cameras

It looks like HMD Global is the newest company to have embraced the controversial notch. The new smartphone launched by the Finnish handset maker is likely to be called Nokia X, even though previous rumors claimed the device will be introduced as Nokia X6.

It’s also possible that HMD may use two different names for the upcoming mid-range smartphone, one for the Chinese market (Nokia X) and another one for the international market (Nokia X6). In any case, several live pictures taken from the launch event in China confirm it’s called Nokia X.

Also, the phone does seem to feature a small …

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 …
