Photo compares the front panel from the Galaxy S8+ to an alleged panel from the Galaxy Note 8

A self proclaimed Samsung fan posted on Twitter the other day, an image that shows the glass screen from the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 next to the panel that was used on the Samsung Galaxy S8+. If these are legitimate displays, you can see for yourself the differences between the two handsets. The Galaxy S8+ features more rounded corners while the Galaxy Note 8 has a boxier form factor.

The high-end phablet, now rumored to be unveiled on August 23rd, appears to carry a screen that could be 6.3-inches to 6.5-inches based on the comparison between the two panels. The Galaxy S8+ …

Presumed OnePlus 5 photo sample hints at a camera with portrait mode, bokeh effect

The recently posted official image of the OnePlus 5 already confirmed the availability of a dual-camera setup. The exact camera specs are still unknown, but one of them may be a monochrome unit, if we can judge from the photo published by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau on Tuesday. And now comes another clue straight out of the OnePlus Twitter page – the above portrait, captioned “Totally Bokeh”.
This leads us to the logical assumption that the OnePlus 5’s camera will be able to reproduce the so-called bokeh effect – one that allows you to take photos with a blurry background …

OnePlus reveals the first photo taken with the OnePlus 5

Not long after announcing that the upcoming OnePlus 5 will feature a main camera made in collaboration with DxO, OnePlus today revealed the very first (public) photo shot with said camera.

As you can see below, OnePlus posted two images on Twitter, asking fans to guess which of them was taken with the OnePlus 5. 

It only makes sense for the better looking image to be shot on the new phone – and that’s certainly photo no. 2. photo no. 1 (on the left) looks murky, while the image on the right is cleaner, with more vibrant colors and finer details. Unfortunately, high-res …

Google Photos' printed photo books feature gets soft-launched in Canada

Remember when it was announced at Google I/O 2017 that Google Photos will allow its users to create real-life printed photo books out of their photos? Well, it seems that this feature has been recently soft-launched in Canada, as some users have noticed the new functionality built into their app.

We are not sure when exactly this novel feature will be hitting the US, but we get to see some of the details as well as the pricing of Photos’ printed books.

Users can choose between a softcover, 7-inch square book consisting of 20 pages that will cost them $9.99, and a hardcover …

Moto Z2 Force and Z2 Play leak out again, this time in a family photo

After the successful Moto Z family of smartphones released in 2016, Motorola Mobility is getting ready to unveil a Moto Z2 series. This should include a regular Moto Z2, a Moto Z2 Force, and a Moto Z2 Play.

Thanks to a new leak, the Z2 Force and Z2 Play can now be seen next to each other – in what appears to be an image that Motorola itself will be using to promote the Z2 series.

This new image – embedded below – doesn’t reveal anything that we didn’t already know (since we’ve seen the two handsets before, albeit separately). But it does allow us to notice that, design wise, there …

Sony's $199 Xperia L1 goes on sale at Amazon and B&H Photo

Sony has a new smartphone up for grabs in America – the Xperia L1. It’s a budget device with a $199 price tag that’s sold completely unlocked at Amazon and B&H Photo. The phone is compatible with GSM carriers, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and Cricket Wireless.

Unfortunately, the handset doesn’t strike us as particularly impressive for the price. It has a 5-inch 720p-resolution display and it’s powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. These features aren’t bad, but you can grab a Nexus 5X or look around for other …

Leaked photo samples allegedly were taken with the OnePlus 5

A series of four photographs have surfaced, allegedly coming from the rumored OnePlus 5 handset. Consider that the EXIF data shows that the photos were snapped using a device with the model number A5000, which would fall into line with previous OnePlus model numbers. For example, the OnePlus 3 is model number A3000. Additionally, the latitude and longitude in the EXIF data show that the photos were taken in Shenzen, China, which would make sense considering that OnePlus is based there.

If you look at the blurring in the second photo, it suggests that rumors about a dual camera setup on the …

Alleged protective case for the iPhone 8 pops up in photo, reaffirms some rumors

So, word on the street is that, this September, Apple will be unveiling not two but three new iPhones — the successors of the current models will be named iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and a new design will come, which we currently call the iPhone 8 (some rumors suggest iPhone X or iPhone Edition). The latter is expected to have an all-screen design, like the ones we’ve seen on the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8, which just launched.

We’ve been seeing some leaks regarding the mysterious iPhone 8 for the past couple of weeks — one suggested that the TouchID fingerprint …
