Galaxy S8 Lite press renders reveal Burgundy Red & Black variants

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 Lite has been revealed in new press renders. After leaking just a few days ago through FCC and TENAA listings, new press images shared via Weibo confirm the leaked smartphone’s design and also reveal two launch color variants.

As can be seen in the images, the design remains nearly identical to that of the regular Galaxy S8. This means an Infinity display with curved edges will adorn the front glass panel, while the rear will continue with the glass build. Also, sandwiched between the panels is an aluminum frame, which once again features a dedicated Bixby button. …

Best Buy will sell you the U.S. unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ for $50 off with a Big Red caveat

Have nothing to do today? Here’s an idea. Get in your car, drive to Best Buy, and take advantage of its sale on the U.S. unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+. Now, there is a big red caveat. Or perhaps we say Big Red caveat. To score the sale price of $669.99, you must activate the phone today through Verizon. And, you need to either open a new account, or add a new line. Following those rules, the U.S. unlocked Samsung Galaxy S9+ is $789.99.

Suppose you have no interest in switching to Verizon, or in adding a new line to your existing Big Red account. Or let’s …

Seeing red? Here's Apple's ad for the (PRODUCT)Red iPhone 8/8 Plus

It has been a week since Apple unveiled the (PRODUCT)Red iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. And of course, Apple’s giant marketing machine has already been all over the new releases with its giant gears turning. Just in case you haven’t watched any television for the last week, what you’ll find at the top of this article is Apple’s television commercial for the new (PRODUCT)Red iPhone models. As far as the ad goes, you might not recognize the device shown on the screen as being an iPhone. Not at first, anyway. The Touch ID button (remember that, Apple iPhone X owners?) appears at the 14 second …

So, how do you find that Red iPhone 8?

This week, Apple launched a new iPhone… color. As a part of the Product Red tradition, which we do hope is now a regular thing for iPhones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now available in a beautiful, vibrant red and — finally — black fronts!

That said, there’s nothing else that’s different about the phone. The prices start at $699 for the 64 GB iPhone 8 variant and stop at $949 for the 256 GB iPhone 8 Plus version. It’s a bit unfortunate that the new color has been introduced half a year after the iPhone 8 launched, and 6 months before the next edition is introduced. We assume it’s a good …

You can now buy a red iPhone 8/8 Plus

Just a couple of days ago, Apple unveiled a brand new color for its iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: red. This new red version comes in addition to the silver, gold and space gray versions that are already available, and starting today, you can now buy the new red model at the same price as the other colors.
Unfortunately, the red version is not available for Apple’s most popular phone currently, the iPhone X. The X will still only be sold in two color versions, a silver and space gray one.

No Product RED iPhone X

Google is back with yet another awesome deal on its streaming services – YouTube Red and Google Play Music. If you’re an Android user then you’ve probably noticed that these deals are very common and don’t last too long.

Secondly, if you’ve previously redeemed this deal before, then you won’t be able to do it again …

Folks would love'em some Product RED iPhone X

We asked you yesterday if you would be interested in Apple releasing the iPhone X in additional colors, different than the orthodox black and white it is available in now, and nearly half of our respondents gave a thumbs up to that gorgeous Product RED version concept you see rendered in the video below, mainly because the color would be fitting beautifully with the black front. While a quarter of you are fine with the current scheme, the perennial golden version is also somewhat of a fan favorite. Looking down in the comments, blue and gray, as well as green options …
