Alleged OnePlus 5T leak shows us a full-screen front, fingerprint scanner migration

So, the OnePlus 5 is gone — you can no longer buy it. What? Why? Well, that’s a bit of a mystery. Less than a year after releasing its latest “flagship killer”, OnePlus claims that they are all out of phone units.

Obviously, this is stirring up speculation that we are about to see a OnePlus 5T — a slightly updated phone, just like what the OnePlus 3T was to the OnePlus 3 last year. And OnePlus being inexplicably vague and stirring controversy is kind of the go-to move when the company is prepping up a marketing campaign. It’s a company built on user curiosity, word of mouth, and the first …

Pokemon Go leak reveals generation 3 pocket monsters that could be added during Halloween event

At the beginning of this month, we told you that Pokemon Go developer Niantic would once again be celebrating Halloween with a special event. Last year’s Halloween celebration drove enough traffic back to the game to make it once again the number one grossing app for iOS. Last year, players were awarded twice the number of candies that they would normally receive for catching a Pokemon, hatching eggs, and transferring Pokemon to the Professor. In addition, certain pocket monsters like Zubat, Golbat, Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Drowzee and Hypno could be found more often in the game.

Leak: iPhone X to get special Dynamic wallpapers to highlight its new OLED display

The upcoming Apple iPhone X is the first-ever iPhone with an OLED (that’s organic light-emitting diode) display. The tech has been used by plenty of Android phone manufacturers before, most prominently by Samsung, who is a major player at driving the technology forward with its Super AMOLED brand. In fact, it’s Samsung that will be providing the OLED panels for Apple’s new flagship.

One of the many benefits of an AMOLED screen is its contrast ratio. Since the panel does not work with a backlight, but each pixel lights up on its own, a black color is made by just …

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

Back in February, during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Motorola announced several new Moto Mods for the Moto Z and Moto Z2 series. Among the modular accessories introduced were the Amazon Alexa speaker and the Polaroid Insta-Share printer. Today, tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass sent out a tweet that gives us a look-see at both new MotoMods. The Alexa speaker converts your Moto Z(2) into a handheld Echo smart speaker thanks to the presence of virtual assistant Alexa. 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.  …

Apple tipped to use LG as a foldable iPhone supplier, since Samsung may leak the design

Samsung may finally be producing its unicorn of a foldable phone in a limited batch, but Apple is taking notice, it seems, as Korean media reports today it has tasked LG with the production of flexible OLED panel and circuit board for an eventual bendy iPhone prototype of its own, some Apple patents for which you can see above. Currently, Apple’s OLED screen needs for the iPhone X and, likely, for the 2018 crop, will be supplied by Samsung, but the team from Cupertino may break that monopoly a year or two from now by investing in LG and other smaller OLED makers.

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 …

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro allegedly leak in official renders

The Huawei Mate 10 series has thus far proven to be quite the head-scratcher: so far we’ve heard of at least three different models — Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, and Mate 10 Lite — but there is allegedly a fourth one (code name Marcel) as well, though we know next to nothing about it. And to further complicate the matter, the Mate 10 Lite seems to have already been made official under a completely different name, even though the series’ launch event is set for October 16.

And while this leaves plenty of room for potential leaks of the series, we’ve …
