Apparently, it's not too early to talk about Apple's 2018 iPhones

iPhone X sales are in full swing, as shipping times become shorter, so there’s really no reason to start talking about the next year’s iPhone. Well, not if your name is Ming-Chi Kuo. The well-known KGI Securities analyst has just given his first predictions about Apple’s new lineup of iPhones that will be unveiled in 2018.

Kuo believes Apple will launch three new iPhones in 2018. Two of them will sport OLED displays, while the third will come with LCD panel. Size-wise, the OLED-based iPhones will boast 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch displays respectively, while the bezel-less LCD model should sport …

The OnePlus 5T is leaking left and right like crazy, with an unofficial unboxing making the rounds some two days ago and a full specs sheet popping up online, seemingly revealing everything there is to know about the upcoming flagship device. But the leaks are not stopping still.

German website heise.de seems to have secured a OnePlus 5T prior to the device’s official announcement on November 16 and has already posted a brief camera comparison between the 5T and its predecessor, the OnePlus 5.
The big news here is that OnePlus has reportedly ditched …

Want to get a OnePlus 5T early? Sign up to be a tester for OnePlus' The Lab

OnePlus has always strived to make community-conscious products. To highlight that fact, earlier this year, the company launched The Lab initiative — 10 lucky fans were chosen to test the OnePlus 5’s camera and share their impressions with OnePlus before the device was officially launched.

With the coming of the OnePlus 5T, The Lab is opening its doors once again. This time, it’s not for photography enthusiasts, but just smartphone fans in general. According to the company, if you have a “knack for reviewing flagship-level technology”, you have a chance of being …

Galaxy Note 9 is reportedly codenamed 'Crown', Samsung might have a prototype in early 2018

With the Note 8 already comfortably resting inside the pockets of million of users, it’s only natural and logical for Samsung to carefully plan its next moves. Aside from the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, this also puts the Galaxy Note 9 on the drawing board.
According to fresh new rumors, Samsung has already started early development of the Galaxy Note 9, which is reportedly codenamed “Crown” and is expected to arrive in late summer 2018, possibly in mid-August. The codename, in particular, doesn’t provide any hints about the device and that’s okay – we …

Samsung to kick off Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Galaxy S8 as early as October 31

Rumor has it Samsung won’t release any Android 8.0 Oreo updates until early 2018. If that’s true, then a beta program should be in place before the year’s end.

A new report claims Samsung will kick off the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Galaxy S8 on October 31. However, not everyone with a Galaxy S8 will be able to enroll into Samsung’s beta program.

Apparently, Samsung will initially launch Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 in the United Kingdom, North America, and South Korea. The second wave of countries getting access to the beta …

Awesome Galaxy S9 renders offer an early glimpse at what Samsung's next flagships might look like

Samsung was among the first major phone makers to usher in the bezel-less design trend that’s taken the mobile world by storm and is seemingly on its way to become the next de-facto norm for smartphone industrial design. The Galaxy S8 and S8+, followed by the mighty Note 8, were all running successes for Samsung, and looking back now, it’s kind of hard to believe that the S8 is actually over half a year old. Yup, the iconic bezel-less duo released back in April, and think about this – that was 6 months ago and there’s about 7 months, give or take a week or two, until their …

iPhone X will arrive in Apple Stores early in the morning on November 3


Apple just announced that the iPhone X – its most advanced
smartphone to date – will be available in Apple Stores starting Friday,
November 3, at 8:00 a.m. local time. Of course, we already knew that the
handset would be released on November 3, but now we have an exact hour for the
launch.

 

Apple says the iPhone X, aka iPhone 10, will be in stock at its stores for walk-in customers, who have the chance to buy the handset right away on launch day. Nevertheless, there will likely be stock shortages, so Apple encourages fans to show
up early. Besides launching in the US, the iPhone X will …

HTC U11 expected to receive Android 8.0 Oreo as early as November

When Google launched Android 8.0 Oreo back in August, it also listed some of the smartphones and companies that will receive updates in the following months. HTC was mentioned in Google’s announcement, although the search giant did not specify which smartphones will be updated and when.

The only thing certain is the U11 will be the first HTC smartphone to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Even though initial reports pointed that such an update will be rolled out before 2018 begins, we managed to narrow it down to a shorter timeframe.

According to HTC leaker …
