OnePlus 5T: all the official images

Sandblasted to oblivion, and with three 14 microns coatings applied to get the Midnight Black color, for instance, the new OnePlus 5T is certainly a looker. A fingerprint-prone layer is finally applied to prevent smudging, and the whole thing is made of aluminum alloy, so it won’t be as fragile as those glass-and-metal flagships of late. 
No matter what you think about OnePlus, the current design is shaping up to be both durable, practical, and pleasing to the eye, what with the 80%+ screen-to-body ratio, rear ceramic finger scanner, …

Clearer images of an alleged OnePlus 5T tip a taller, narrower phone

Another day, another alleged OnePlus 5T render springs from the guts of the Chinese tech blogosphere or thereabouts. It doesn’t reveal much else than what we already know – the 5T will likely be a taller, narrower handset due to the new 18:9 aspect ratio of the 6″ display – but it is clearer than previous alleged renders, and will keep your wheels spinning until OnePlus gets on stage next week to actually announce it. 

As for the back of the handset, it certainly looks like in previous leaked renders, rear-mounted finger scanner, dual camera, …

Teardown images give us a peek at iPhone X innards and its L-shaped battery

The iPhone X goes on sale today and large queues have already formed in front of multiple Apple Stores around the world. Heck, even black market prices are nearing the $3,000-mark, which is crazy no matter how you look at it.

While we will have to wait for a while before we get treated to a full teardown of the snazzy new iOS device, but an early disassembly originating from the depths of mainland China is here, allowing us to take a glance at the iPhone X’s innards and its L-shaped battery.
For starters, the iPhone X looks quite similar to just about …

A luxurious hue for every mood. #HuaweiMate10 Series comes in Champagne Gold, Pink Gold, Mocha Brown, Black, Titanium Grey & Midnight Blue. pic.twitter.com/NnjDoxwSxc— Huawei Mobile (@HuaweiMobile) October 16, 2017
Huawei Mate 10 and 10 Pro are now official, and are as pretty as they were shown on the leaked renders, coming a variety of stylish colors, and in a screen-to-body ratio to die for. With reinforced glass bodies that have a uniform hue at the front and the back, they are certainly lookers, especially the Porsche Design model that comes with ceramic casing and a …

Images of upcoming Moto Mods leak; Amazon Alexa speaker and Polaroid Insta-share printer surface

The latter will control your smart home, give you the latest news and weather, allow you to shop by voice through Amazon, and much more.  …

Real-life images of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 leak out: 18:9 display, dual cameras

One of the latest trends in the smartphone industry is throwing tall, 18:9 displays up front. For one reason ore another, some manufacturers claim they do that due to the obviously-impending arrival of 2:1 multimedia content whereas others are merely following suit for no explicit reason whatsoever. That said, one noteworthy upside of devices donning such display is simply how easier are they to handle compared to similarly-sized 16:9 devices. But we digress…

One of the possible newcomers to the 18:9 scene is none other than China’s Xiaomi, which is reportedly looking forward …

New Google Pixel 2 XL photo revealed by Walmart alongside fresh Home Mini images


Google hasn’t been able to keep its upcoming Pixel 2
smartphone series under wraps, so we’ve already seen both devices (the 5-inch
Pixel 2, and the 6-inch Pixel 2 XL), while also learning quite a lot about
their features. 

 

Unlike the Pixel and Pixel XL of 2016 (which shared the same
design, though in different sizes), the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have fronts that don’t look alike. More exactly, the Pixel 2 XL sports a display with round corners and minimal bezels,
while the Pixel 2 has a more traditional screen with pretty large bezels at the
top and bottom. In case you’re doubting …

Images of Microsoft's canceled Xbox-branded smartwatch leaked out

In some ways, Microsoft was ahead of its time, but the Redmond-based company did not always take the right decisions when it needed to. There are so many failed or canceled projects that Microsoft poured its resources into that we can’t think of what the world would look like with all those products in it.

Microsoft ditched a few smartphones, tablets and even a smartwatch. We’ve already covered the first two, so let’s talk about the so-called Xbox smartwatch since images of the wearable device have just leaked online.

Back in 2013, rumors emerged that Microsoft …
