Don't blame us if you're drooling after watching this official new product video for the LG Q6

LG released a new product video today for its latest new smartphone, the mid-range LG Q6. The phone, originally thought of as a mini version of the LG G6 flagship, does feature a 5.5-inch FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Depending on the version you select, the phone could feature 4GB RAM and 64GB of native storage (LG Q6+), 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage (LG Q6), or 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage (LG Q6α).

The video details some of the features available for the phone, including the sturdy frame made from series 7000 aluminum. This is the same material …


Motorola to hold July 25th new product unveiling event in New York City

Looks like Motorola will be unveiling at least one new phone in New York City around the end of the current month (July 25th to be exact). Invites sent out by the company say, “You won’t want to miss this,” and colored tunnels flash red, yellow, orange, pink and blue lights. We could see the Moto Z2 Force introduced (we recently got a peek at the AT&T version of the phone) along with the Moto X4. The latter might feature a dual camera-set up and an IP68 certification rating. That is a bit unusual for Motorola as the company usually relies on nano-coating fron P2i to protects a handset from …

Take a peek at the first iPhone 8 dummy unit that actually looks like a real product

Another day, another alleged iPhone 8 dummy unit has been spotted online. However, this time the pictures come from a somewhat reputable source, serial leakster @OnLeaks, and also for the first time ever their subject actually looks like a real product that may hit the store shelves soon, instead of an incomplete attempt at recreating one.
Or in other words, consider this as the closest thing we’ve gotten to a real look at the iPhone 8 so far. So let’s dive in:
The front of the dummy shows us little we haven’t seen …

Which of these OnePlus 5 prototypes would you rather have made it to be the final product?

It’s no secret that phone manufacturers go through lots of prototypes and test a lot of options before deciding on a final design for a product. OnePlus, aspiring to be a serious and competitive phone slinger, naturally did the same. Co-founder Carl Pei said that the OnePlus 5 went through 100 different prototypes.

We saw some of them thanks to an exclusive report by The Verge. The writers were shown a bunch of OnePlus 5 designs that didn’t make it to be the final product, and took a photo to show them to the world.

We can see a lot of different ideas woven in every phone on that …

Is this the most hard-to-get Apple product of all times?

When Apple launched the original iPhone, people were initially a bit wary about this new technology. In fact, Apple itself was not completely sure how much it was going to sell, setting a first-year goal of 10 million units. It was only further in time, when more and more people got to actually try this new type of a smartphone that the demand started surging. The iPod was also a similar story.
In fact, if you look at the history of Apple, it has had quite a few hit products, but somehow the company has habitually been able to catch up with …

Samsung releases new product video for the Galaxy Tab S3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is not only a highly spec’d beast of a tablet, it also is quite thin. And it is so light, it practically levitates itself off of the ground. That is the impression that Samsung wants you to have after viewing its newly released product video for the tablet, which goes on sale today. And of course, the S Pen makes an appearance in the clip, smoothly marking up the screen as though it were a figure skate gliding on a clean patch of ice.

The Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. Powering the slate is the Snapdragon …

Sapphire Blue Moto G5 leaks out, Internet still obsessed with Product Red iPhone

Ever thought the Moto G5 lacked a bit of Blue at launch? You are not the only one. That’s why Lenovo is prepping to launch the affordable phone in a “Blue Sapphire” color variant sometime soon.

Promotional images of the handset showed up online, presenting a very blue Moto G5. It’s so blue, it’d sing about baby leaving it while wailing away on a rusty harmonica. 
Still, it could turn out to be a breath of fresh air among the onslaught of crimson red phones that will inevitably follow Apple’s latest announcement in a few months.

No changes beyond …

The beautiful Product Red iPhone 7 will silently make the world a better place. Here's how

You might remember the Product Red iPod from a few years ago. There was also the one-of-a-kind red Mac Pro, which didn’t gather as much consumer attention, but in 2013 it sold at an auction for $977,000. In fact, there was also the (RED) desk, designed by Jony Ive and sold at that same auction for $1.685 million. Now we have the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. But what is this all about? Some people might already know the answer, but in case you haven’t been following Apple for that long, let us explain why the red Apple products are so special, and why that simple desk …

Apple Store shutdown hints at new product announcements tomorrow


Exactly one week ago today, we told you that Apple could be planning a subtle release of its new Apple iPad Pro tablets this week. Today, Apple pretty much confirmed that it will be unveiling new products as soon as tomorrow morning. Apple’s System Status reveals that the Apple Store will be closed for maintenance on Tuesday, March 21st, from 3:00am to 8:30am Eastern Time. During those hours, “the Apple Store will be updated and unavailable.”

Apple traditionally has closed the Apple Store on the day of new product announcements, and tomorrow’s five and a half hour shutdown dovetails …

Samsung Galaxy S8 is certified by Chinese product quality testing agency CCC

Product testing lab UL tests products sold in the U.S. to make sure that they won’t electrocute users or burn down their homes. In China, any device that is imported into the country or produced domestically, must receive the China Compulsory Certification (CCC). And that obviously applies to smartphones, which are tested in labs inside China. We can now tell you that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has received its CCC certification.

While the model number for the phone in most regions is SM-G950 (and SM-G955 for the Samsung Galaxy S8+), in China the Galaxy S8 appears on the CCC documentation …
