More OnePlus 5 photos leak out, cases and retail box included

Since OnePlus couldn’t – and didn’t – want to keep too many secrets about the OnePlus 5, its upcoming flagship phone, we know quite a lot about the device. The handset will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a dual rear camera à la iPhone 7 Plus, and an overall design that also makes us think about Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone.

Shortly after we’ve seen what appear to be renders showing the front and back of the OnePlus 5, we can now check out another set of photos that seemingly present the upcoming phone in (and out of) its retail box. It’s not clear what the exact origin of the …


"Final" schematics leak for Apple iPhone 7s Plus and Apple iPhone 8

So much focus has been put on the 10th anniversary Apple iPhone model that has been dubbed the iPhone 8, that not much has been said about the two other units that will accompany the premium handset. Today, two schematics have surfaced that are reportedly the final drawings for the Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the Apple iPhone 8. These diagrams are believed to be employed in the production of the two phones.

Starting with the Apple iPhone 8, the dimensions are 143.4 x 70.77 x 7.51 mm not including the dual-camera bump on the rear. As we’ve seen with other images, the iPhone 8 will feature an …

The Microsoft Surface Mobile will include a built-in projector, Surface Pen, and Win32 app support, leak shows

It’s been a while since we’ve heard rumors of the mythical creature known as the Surface Phone, but if the rumor mill is to be trusted, a number of huge details about it (like, for example, that it hasn’t been shelved like most of us suspected) may have just been revealed by Microsoft itself.

As far as obscurity goes, the source of the information probably ranks pretty high on your average Westerner’s list – a video description on Microsoft’s official account on Bilibili, a Chinese, anime-themed YouTube-like video sharing service. The text reveals …

Huge Apple leak could just as well be someone's vivid imagination

TwitterFacebook

Apple, as a rule, never says what its upcoming products will look like, be like, or even what they’re called. But months and even years before a new Apple product is scheduled (or expected to) arrive, numerous rumors shape these objects into a vague but somewhat coherent picture. This is how we “know” that the next iPhone will come in three versions, one of which will (likely) have a near bezel-less screen with an under-the-glass fingerprint sensor and a glass back.

These rumors mostly originate from the elusive “sources in Apple’s supply chain,” which usually means either workers at Foxconn, the Chinese company that builds the iPhone for Apple, or various secondary sources such as workers at companies that make iPhone cases and thus have limited prior knowledge of what the upcoming devices will look like.  Read more…

OnePlus 5 camera samples leak, suggesting that one of the dual cameras will shoot in monochrome

New photographs have surfaced, claiming to be more camera samples from the upcoming OnePlus 5. We expect to see a dual camera setup on back of the phone, with a vertical placement. OnePlus is working in tandem with photography benchmark firm DxOMark to improve the cameras on the next flagship killer. In late April, a series of four photos taken in Shenzen, China, where OnePlus is headquartered, leaked. Said to have been shot with the OnePlus 5, this set of photographic samples contained a picture with a blurred background which supposedly indicated that the handset will have two rear cameras in …

Apple iPhone 8 dimensions leak along with new renders

According to the latest leak about the tenth-anniversary edition Apple iPhone, the model dubbed the Apple iPhone 8 will feature dimensions of 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm. To put these numbers in perspective, the Apple iPhone 7 measures 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm. That means that the iPhone 8 will be bigger all around than the iPhone 7. Compared to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, which weighs in at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm, the iPhone 8 is smaller. This is true even if the latter carries a larger screen. The edge-to-edge near bezel-less look of the tenth- anniversary edition makes this possible.

Moto G5S+ leak shows off all possible color options to be made available

Yesterday, we passed along to you images alleged to be those of the Moto G5S. Apparently, the only difference between the Moto G5 and Moto G5S is that the latter will feature an all-metal body.

Today, images of the Moto G5S + have been unveiled; not only can we see all of the possible color options being made available to consumers, we can see that the handset comes with a dual-camera setup on back.

The first we heard about the Moto G5S and Moto G5S+ was earlier this month when an “alphabetical road map” for the Moto line was leaked during …

Facebook internal guides on content moderation revealed in recent leak

 

An investigation by the Guardian gives a first time look at Facebook’s content moderation manuals, related to hate speech, terrorism, pornography, racism, and others. Facebook moderators often have less than 10 seconds to review and action a reported post, meaning the possibility for inconsistent judgment is quite real. But, hey, with more than 6.5 million reported posts a week, those guys are not having a stroll in their 9-to-5. However, some of the rules seem quite confusing and look set to fuel social debate on how the company manages content.

In one of the leaked …

HTC U 11 video leak shows off Edge Sense in action, and more

A video leaked out this afternoon from an unknown third party that shows how the Edge Sense feature will work on the HTC U 11. The phone is expected to be unveiled by the manufacturer tomorrow, and the video has already been removed by YouTube. However, it has been posted on another site.

Edge Sense gives the phone’s user the ability to snap a picture by using Edge Sense like a shutter button.

Squeezing in the sides also opens …
