As if we needed even more indirect evidence that something big is brewing in Samsung’s Note line battery department (and we don’t mean self-combusting), a leak out of the FCC outed one yet-to-be-released wireless charger from Samsung with a raw output to match the eventual 4000mAh battery of the Galaxy Note 9.
This year’s Father’s Day is just around the corner, this very Sunday, June 17, and if you haven’t got your pops a gift just yet, well, you better hurry because there’s not much time left.
It’s currently unclear when Samsung will choose to unveil the Galaxy A9 Star (SM-G8850) officially, but after a video
allegedly showed off the smartphone’s final design, a set of new images give a much closer glimpse at the device, while also revealing a new color option in the process.
LG’s rumored Q7 has just appeared on a popular benchmarking site. Last year the company introduced its first two LG Q-branded devices, the Q6 and Q8, with the former being a budget alternative to the then-flagship LG G6. Now, with the G7 ThinQ set to be released June 1, LG is rumored to be planning a similar strategy for 2018 and the device, expected to be called the Q7, has shown up on Geekbench.

In a world where a 5.2-inch display seems to be the absolute minimum for a flagship phone, Sony seems to be the only one who caters to the niche that prefers a small, but still powerful device.
