Late to preorder? No worries, the iPhone X is already being flipped at double the price

Just as we thought, anyone who wished to get an iPhone X come next Friday, will be able to do so… depending on the price they are willing to pay. In the few short hours since Apple’s preorders went live, eBay was literally flooded with “any color, any carrier” offers, complete with screenshots of the order confirmation as a proof. 

Our top-notch favorite (pun intended) is the guy that is asking nearly three grand for his 256 GB silver model preorder, and is generously throwing in $125 shipping for all those poor chumps abroad that couldn’t get …


OnePlus 5T could be released in late November


A couple of days ago, we saw what’s allegedly the OnePlus 5T
– an unannounced handset that OnePlus is seemingly working on, with the
intention of launching it in the near future. According to ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka
@evleaks), two trusted sources have it that this new smartphone will be
released before the end of November, though not sooner than November 20. 

 

Last year, November brought us the OnePlus 3T, so it makes a
lot of sense for the OnePlus 5T to be unveiled and launched in November, too. Unlike
the 3T, which was a OnePlus 3 lookalike with some upgraded internals, …

Earlier today, we told you about a new report passed along to clients by KGI Securities. The report focused on pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 3, and revealed that the version of the timepiece with cellular capabilities was accounting for as much as 90% of pre-orders instead of the 30% to 40% predicted by the brokerage firm. Another part of the report dealt with the Apple iPhone X and how its delayed November 3rd launch is actually having a negative impact on  pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 8 and the Apple iPhone 8 Plus.

In its report, KGI pointed out that traditionally, …

Apple's AirPower wireless charger is running late. Enter Belkin's Boost Up pad for the iPhone 8/X

Apple’s AirPower wireless charging mat may look svelte and top up everything with the fruit logo in sight, but it’s coming much later than its announcement, so what’s a cord-cutter to do when they get their new iPhone 8, Plus or X? After all, why have fresh glass backs that pass those electrons through with ease, if not to use the new wireless charging option that Apple finally brings to its phone portfolio.

Fret not, though, as Belkin just announced a wireless charging pad called Boost Up which has been developed directly in collaboration with Apple. Utilizing the most widespread …

On August 31, LG will be announcing a brand new high-end smartphone, the V30. However, the handset will (unsurprisingly) not go on sale immediately.

If you live in South Korea, LG’s home country, it looks like you’ll be able to buy the V30 starting September 15. Most likely, the new smartphone will be released in many other regions, including Europe, …
