Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) leaks with entry-level specs

The Samsung Galaxy J5 from 2017
Samsung might be in the making of a new entry-level smartphone – the Galaxy J4 (2018). This is the conclusion we arrived at after learning that a phone with the model name Samsung SM-J400F appeared in the Geekbench benchmark database.
The not-yet-announced model runs Android 8.0 and has a quad-core 1,4 GHz processor on the inside, probably the Exynos 7570 that was present in the Galaxy J3 (2017) as well, alongside 2 GB of RAM. The alleged device has a Geekbench score of 623 for single-core …

Cricket Wireless starts selling the entry-level Alcatel Verso for just $30

The new Alcatel Verso is one of the cheapest Android smartphones that you can now purchase in the United States. US carrier Cricket Wireless now offers the Verso for free with number transfer or $30 with new number (or current customer upgrade).

As you might have guessed, the Alcatel Verso is far from being impressive specs-wise. It’s true, the Verso runs Android 7.0 Nougat, which is quite decent even for a 2018 smartphone.

However, the handset sports a modest 5-inch display with FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution and Dragontrail Glass. It’s got a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, 16GB …

Samsung has one more ace under its sleeve for those looking to buy a decent Android tablet for outdoor use. That ace is called Galaxy Tab Active 2, a rugged tablet that we’ve learned about for the first time back in June. However, it was only last week that we’ve been able to dig a few details about the slate and find out that it will soon be introduced.

Since information about its specs was scarce, we’re happy to report that the Galaxy Tab Active 2 made it to GFXBench, the app that stores benchmark results for old, new and unreleased smartphones and tablet.

Bixby to make its tablet debut on the entry-level Galaxy Tab A (2017)

While most people’s eyes have been firmly stuck to the newly unveiled Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has quietly been preparing the launch of a number of other products in the near future: there’s at least two new wearables on the horizon, along with a budget tablet which will be the successor to last year’s Galaxy Tab A 8.0.

And while we’ve already seen the latter in photos from Chinese regulatory agency TENAA, today Samsung has (probably by accident) publicly released its user manual. And while one wouldn’t normally expect much surprises from an entry-level …

Entry-level Moto C receives its Bluetooth certification

Earlier this month, we told you about the Moto C and Moto C Plus. This will apparently be a new budget line for the Moto handsets, designed for the first-time smartphone user. With that in mind, it isn’t terribly surprising that these will be the cheapest smartphones ever offered by Motorola, and that covers a lot of territory. Despite several leaks and word that the phone has been certified in Russia, there apparently is some time left before the handsets are unveiled.

For example, today we can tell you that the the Moto C (XT1750) has been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest …

Nokia 3 camera samples: here's what the entry-level smartphone is capable of

Truth be told, the most popular device present at Nokia’s MWC 2017 booth was the resurrected Nokia 3310, which came back from the ashes of history like a fiery phoenix. What is this, 1999? 
While it really is an intriguing case, Nokia had a few other devices that also deserve their fair share of attention – the Nokia 6, 5, and 3 completed the company’s strong presence at the trade show.
