LG launches V30 "Signature Edition" with ceramic back, Android Oreo, and 6GB RAM, but you can't have it!

LG is launching a new luxurious smartphone in South Korea. The new handset is called “LG Signature Edition” and is based on the high-end V30 model. 
Many of the Signature Edition phone’s specs are identical to the normal version of the 6-inch phablet. However, there are some notable differences between the two. For starters, the glass back of the V30 is substituted with a zirconium ceramic plate on the posh variant. The premium material is known to be much more scratch-resistant than metal or glass, but it certainly isn’t immune to cracking. …


Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2017) leaked specs include Exynos-based chipset, 3GB RAM

Besides the entry-level Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) that we reported about a few days ago, Samsung is likely to launch another cheap smartphone by the end of the year, the Galaxy J5 Prime (2017).

Well, the name isn’t official yet, but there’s a high chance that the leaked device is a sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime, also known as Samsung SM-G570. The unannounced device that has been recently listed at GFXBench has a consequential model number, SM-G571, which is why we believe it to be a follow-up to the Galaxy J5 Prime.

The sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime is expected to pack a 1.4GHz quad-core …

Razer Phone is here with 5.7" 120Hz Ultramotion display, 8 GB of RAM, and it's insane!


The serious side of mobile gaming
Razer, a leading gaming tech company, is ready to enter the busy smartphone marketplace with a product of its own. Its debut handset is called Razer Phone, and it is not your average smartphone. In typical Razer fashion, it promises a true spectacle.

Understated looks with no blinking RGB lights
The Razer Phone has a classic, rectangular design. Think the entire Sony Xperia series, or the Nextbit Robin from last year. There are no rounded corners to minimize the footprint here. Just an unapologetic, simple rectangle. If you hold the device in landscape …

A midranger to rule them all: leaked Galaxy A7 (2018) specs taunt new Exynos and 6GB RAM

Samsung’s Galaxy A-series is the sweet spot between the affordable but lowly J-line, and the flagship S portfolio, so every time a new one is on the horizon, our collective attention peaks. The purported specs for the Galaxy A7 (2018) just leaked out on Geekbench, and, since the line is expected to follow the new bezel-less design of Samsung, they are only icing on the potential A-series cake.

The upcoming Galaxy A7 (SM-A730F) is listed with an Exynos 7885 chipset, whose leaked specs back in the summer denoted a 14nm octa-core processor with 2x A73 + 6x A53 cores, …

First Razer phone to be a beast with 8 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 835 CPU inside


Gaming powerhouse Razer may have been working on a
smartphone for over a year, but, until now, it provided almost no details about
the device. Thankfully, the company is seemingly planning to unveil the handset
on November 1. This will be Razer’s very first smartphone, and it looks like
it’s going to be packed with high-end features.

 

According to a listing found at graphics benchmark developer
GFXBench, the Razer smartphone sports a 5.7-inch display with 1440 x 2560
pixels, thus it won’t have an 18:9 aspect ratio à la Samsung Galaxy S8 or LG
V30. 
The upcoming handset …
