HTC U12+ (Imagine) leaks out, shows off two dual cameras

While it recently sold an important part of its mobile division to Google, HTC is far from being done with building smartphones, and the company is expected to release a new flagship handset called HTC U12+.
Codenamed HTC Imagine, the U12+ can now be seen in an image showing – for the very first time – its front and rear sides. Revealed by Venture Beat, said image isn’t of the highest quality, but it certainly allows us to understand the design of the HTC U12+.
Similar to last year’s U11+, the HTC U12+ has thin bezels around its screen, …

The Fitbit Versa smartwatch leaks as the company aims at both genders this time

Fitbit’s first smartwatch, the Fitbit Ionic, was hardly a success. When paired to a handset, the Ionic gave users notifications related to texts and phone calls, and with a smattering of apps, a mobile payment system, GPS, and Fitbit OS, the company figured that the Ionic would appeal to consumers interested in a smartwatch. But the large size of the display apparently turned off potential female buyers, something that Fitbit is said to be addressing with its next smartwatch.

Thanks to a report published today, we can see that Fitbit’s second smartwatch attempt is being prepped. Called the …

Et tu, Huawei? Affordable P20 Lite leaks, and guess what it has at the top

The cheapest member of the upcoming P20 family by Huawei has leaked out completely in regulatory filings, and… surprise, surprise… it does show a cutout at the top bezel. Yes, just like the rumors and leaked cases suggested, the P20 Lite, which will cost about $370, does sport a notch, and its flagship brethren the P20 and P20 Plus might as well. Thus, if the LG G7 indeed houses the front camera and earpiece in a thicker top bezel area, as speculated, most major Android manufacturers, save for Samsung and Sony, would be copying Apple’s way of achieving an “all-screen” phone this year, it seems.

The …

Fitbit's most appealing smartwatch leaks in press renders ahead of announcement

Samsung Galaxy S9 official promo video leaks out

What has just leaked out is the full promo video for the Galaxy S9 detailing all of its features. And it’s nobody but Samsung’s own fault as somebody slipped and published the video ahead of time.

We are already en route to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) expo in Barcelona today, but if leaks continue this way, there will be only personal impressions about fingerprint smudges to relay to you, as, after the Galaxy S9 design popped up in glorious high-res, now the best tablet of the expo has also been revealed.

Huawei P20 prototype unit leaks in live pictures, leaves nothing to the imagination

Huawei has found a way to set its phones apart from the competition: three rear-cameras. The P20 will skip Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year, but the Chinese handset maker has already confirmed its flagship will be unveiled on March 27.

As expected, there hasn’t been any lack of information regarding the Huawei P20’s specs, but images with the phone haven’t been leaked yet. The most recent picture allegedly showing the flagship might not be legit, so we have yet to learn what exactly the P20 looks like.

Now the folks over at AndroidAuthority got their hands on a set of Huawei …

Working Galaxy S9 leaks out in the flesh, looking rather S8-ish

#GalaxyS9— SamsungMobile.News (@Samsung_News_) February 21, 2018 
Well, well, well, this might be the first time we are seeing an actual Galaxy S9 in the flesh and in the works, albeit an engineering sample of some sort, judging from the stickers on the back and front. 

We are actually not seeing anything that wasn’t already revealed by the leaked official renders yesterday, and about the only features that can tell the design apart from the S8 are the horizontal fingerprint scanner below the camera lens, as well the slightly thinner …
