Motorola's July 25th Event: Say hello to the Moto Z2 Force! New Moto Mod as well!

Today is the (ongoing) launch event for the Moto Z2 Force.
The Z2 was accompanied by the unveiling of two more Moto Mods, as well: the 360
Camera Mod which launched today, and the Moto Gamepad, which is said to launch later
this summer. Motorola’s also throwing a full-blown launch party for the Z2
Force later today, but in the mean time we figured we’d break you off with a little
preview of the two products launched today.

 

Ta-da! Here it is, the Moto Z2 Force, in all its
unbreakable* glory.

*The Z2 Force is said to be unbreakable from drops as high
as five …


Samsung officially announces Unpacked event for August 23rd; Galaxy Note 8 anybody?


This afternoon, Samsung sent us an invitation to its next Unpacked event. This will be held on August 23rd in New York City. If you’re thinking that this date sounds familiar, that is because last week we told you that reports out of Korea called for an August 23rd unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Now we should make one thing clear about the invite we received today. The words Samsung Galaxy Note 8 aren’t written anywhere on it. But a blue silhouette in the shape of the Samsung S Pen is included, and that pretty much takes the mystery away.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected …

Motorola to hold July 25th new product unveiling event in New York City

Looks like Motorola will be unveiling at least one new phone in New York City around the end of the current month (July 25th to be exact). Invites sent out by the company say, “You won’t want to miss this,” and colored tunnels flash red, yellow, orange, pink and blue lights. We could see the Moto Z2 Force introduced (we recently got a peek at the AT&T version of the phone) along with the Moto X4. The latter might feature a dual camera-set up and an IP68 certification rating. That is a bit unusual for Motorola as the company usually relies on nano-coating fron P2i to protects a handset from …

Una the dog was the best part of the OnePlus 5 launch event

So the OnePlus 5 just got announced, with what one might be tempted to call a somewhat boring presentation. The prerecorded keynote was a bit of a slow, lethargic experience, similar in tone to last year’s 3T event. But not everything was bad. In fact, there were a couple of brief but very welcome moments of bliss, when she appeared. No, not American supermodel and OnePlus spokesperson Emily Ratajkowski.
We’re talking about Una.
The red-coated Shiba Inu, a mainstay of OnePlus’ marketing, made an appearance at the event, and actually …

OnePlus 5 launch event invites are out, contain kevlar case with cut-out for dual camera

There’s less than a week left until the OnePlus 5’s announcement on June 20. The company is sending media invites for the event, typically stylish and attention-sparking. More of a press kit than a mere invitation, the ‘assembly’ asks its beholder to “focus on what matters” – how enlightening!

What’s more interesting is that the invite contains a kevlar case (not confirmed if actual kevlar, or just texture) for, presumably, the OnePlus 5. Our presumption is based on the fact that the case features a dual camera cutout on the back (a horizontal one), …

With a number of Moto handsets still expected but unannounced, Motorola Brazil has sent out invitations to its Hello Moto event to take place on June 21st.

An unannounced Moto model was certified by the FCC carrying a 5.5-inch display, and is powered by the Snapdragon 430 chipset. FCC documentation reveals that a 3000mAh battery is on board. Will that be the phone unveiled on June 21st?

One model that we are waiting to see unveiled is the Moto …

Pokemon GO celebrates its first anniversary, details Solstice in-game event, future plans

Niantic has just revealed new information about what’s coming for Pokemon GO in the next couple of weeks. Before going into details, it’s worth mentioning the game celebrates two milestones: 750 million global downloads and one year since Pokemon GO was released in the App Store.

As such, the developers have decided to host the Solstice Event starting June 13. During this event, players will meet Fire-type and Ice-type Pokemon at a higher frequency. Moreover, big XP bonuses will be offered for throwing Poke Balls accurately, while Lucky Eggs will be massively discounted …
