New Galaxy Note 9 benchmark test surfaces: US version of the phone likely has 6 GB of RAM

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will probably not be announced before August, but the company is – unsurprisingly – already testing the phone. Just a couple of days ago, a Snapdragon-based Note 9 was benchmarked on Geekbench, so we now have a new pseudo-proof that the handset exists (most likely, no one was doubting that anyway).
The new Galaxy Note phone that’s been benchmarked has the model number SM-N960U. This is almost certainly a US-bound Note 9, as it succeeds the SM-N950U – one of the official US variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (pictured above). The …

Samsung launches Galaxy S9 128 GB and 256 GB in the US

Samsung just announced that it’s ready to officially release upgraded variants of its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ phones in the US. More exactly, we’re talking about S9 and S9+ versions with 128 GB and 256 GB of storage space, which will be available to pre-order starting tomorrow, May 1.  
The new Galaxy S9 and S9+ models will properly go on sale on May 18, exclusively at Samsung, so it doesn’t look like any carrier has plans to sell them. The smartphones will be offered unlocked, with three color options available: Midnight Black, Lilac Purple, and Coral Blue. …

Grab an iPhone 7 32 GB for just $347 here

So, the 2017 iPhones were a bit of a letdown. Not counting the uber-expensive iPhone X, which finally revitalized the Apple handset design, the regular iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were more of the same. Well, we did get wireless charging and glass backs, but that’s the thing — not everybody likes a glass back on their phone.

Then, there are the 2016 iPhones — the 7 and the 7 Plus — which are still pretty powerful, have good cameras, and …

Deal: Save $160 on the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (128 GB, Exynos variant)

If you’re in need of an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you’d normally have to pay about $950 for it – that’s its official US price. Of course, various unlocked Note 8 deals have been around for months, but many of them don’t include US warranty, and all involve the 64 GB version of the handset. 
A brand new deal now lets you get an unlocked Galaxy Note 8 with 128 GB of storage space for $819.99, thus saving $160. This is a dual SIM international variant of the phone (model number SM-N950F) that’s powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 processor – unlike the official …

Deal alert: grab a Google Pixel 2 128 GB for $170 off (new, unpacked)

Buy here

Google’s Pixels are probably the best phones you can get if you want to get the pure Android experience, the way Google intended it to feel. They have top-notch hardware, amazing cameras, the latest updates straight from Google, and will often get special services before they become available to other Android phone slingers. But they are quite pricey, too. You can call them the “iPhone of Android” because they are pretty much the equivalent …

The iPad Pro 12.9” is definitely a monster — both in terms of size and price. With a screen so big that it wants you to start reconsidering replacing your laptop with this iOS device, it also costs just about as much as a MacBook Air, even more if you choose to add more space, 4G connectivity, the Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard.

Well, there’s a deal over at eBay that you might be interested in if you’ve been eyeing …

Upgraded Motorola Moto X4 (with 6 GB of RAM) to be launched in February

Lenovo and Motorola Mobility are getting ready to release a new edition of the Moto X4, at least in India. According to Motorola India, the upcoming Moto X4 smartphone runs Android 8 Oreo out of the box, being “faster, smarter, and sharper” than the 2017 model. At launch, last year’s Moto X4 – pictured above – ran Android 7 Nougat, though an update to Android Oreo is now available for it. 
While Motorola isn’t confirming this, additional sources have it that the Moto X4 2018 should feature 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space. A superior processor (Snapdragon …

Unlocked LG V30+ (128 GB, premium headphones) now available to pre-order in the US


One week after it started selling its unlocked V30
smartphone in the US,
LG is now almost ready to launch an unlocked variant of the V30+, too.

 

While it’s not as fancy as the V30 Signature Edition recently
released in South Korea,
the LG V30+ is still superior to the regular V30. That’s because it offers
double the storage space (128 GB vs. 64 GB), and comes with premium LG QuadPlay
headphones in the box (while the normal V30 has no headphones at all).

 

If you’re interested in getting the unlocked LG V30+, for
now, the handset can be pre-ordered only via B&H, one of LG’s …
