Cases spotted for Asus Zenfone AR could mean its U.S. release will be soon

A photo that shows an image of what appears to be a case for the Asus ZenFone AR could be a hint that we can expect the handset to be launched soon in the U.S. The device, which supports Google’s AR focused Project Tango, was unveiled in January at the CES in Las Vegas with 8GB of RAM (the first handset to carry such an amount), and three cameras including a 23MP primary snapper. Other cameras on the device track motion and depth. With the AR capabilities, the handset can create 3D indoor maps and much more.

Back in May, we told you that Verizon is expected to offer the handset this summer …

'Final' iPhone 8 design leak depicts 4mm bezels, tips $1100 release price

Whenever a popular phone approaches its announcement date, there is a barrage of case makers that advertise their brands by pushing concept images of the handset snug tightly in their own wrappers. In the best-case scenario, such renders are based on leaked factory schematics and tips from industry sources, rather than just rumors and educated guesswork, so sometimes these leaks depict what turns out to be very close to the real deal. The latest in these installments comes courtesy of a luxury case maker that pushed some info about the iPhone 8 already, but now has managed to issue …

Android O release date: Here's when it might be hitting the popular Android devices

By now, it’s public knowledge that Android O is coming to a device near you soon. 
If our past experience is anything to go by, only a minuscule amount of Android users will be getting the newest taste of Android on day 1 of public availability. Pixel users are a getting it first, no doubt about that, but who’s next? Remains to be seen.
But what’s the fuss all about? Is Android O such an important update to the OS at all? For the most part, it’s about to introduce lots of under-the-hood improvements for the OS, as well as overhaul …

Essential Phone release date, price, and availability: all we know so far

It was May 30 when the Essential Phone was officially announced. Its unveiling was a big deal – not only because we rarely see a new company entering the smartphone market, and not only because the phone itself was looking top notch, with premium, modern design, high-end hardware specs, and clean Android software to top it all off. The excitement around the young company and its first mobile product was also fueled by the fact that Andy Rubin, often referred to as the “father” of Android, is the man in charge of Essential. In other words, this phone had to be good if it …

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active price and release date predictions

We’ve already talked about the Galaxy S8 Active, a rumored and anticipated handset that’s most definitely coming pretty soon. As the name suggests, the Galaxy S8 Active will be a rugged, more durable variation of the flashy Galaxy S8. We largely expect it to drop the glass at the rear for a more rugged material that wouldn’t break if you accidentally drop the phone on a hard surface. Furthermore, the curved display at the front of the Galaxy S8, albeit neat and cool, will be substituted for a flat variation that won’t be as susceptible to breakage due to accidental drops. A …

LG V30 price and release date: Here's everything we know so far

With the hype surrounding the almost bezel-less G6 abating, LG is gearing up to launch its second flagship for the year – the LG V30. In keeping with V-series traditions of years past, the V30 is expected to be powered by a top-of-the-line processor, to cater to audiophiles with a high-end DAC built in, and to continue and evolve the ticker screen concept that started with the V10 in 2015.

But this time around, the LG V30 may be poised to hit the market earlier than its predecessors. LG has already teased us that it has a something V-series-related to announce on …

Authorities release ironic last text message sent by electrocuted 14-year old

Last week we passed along the sad story about Madison Coe, the 14-year old girl who was electrocuted after bringing her cellphone into the bath with her. Yesterday, the Lovington Police released a text that was apparently sent just before Coe was shocked to death. The text, sent to a friend, contained a photo of an extension cord wrapped in a towel and read, “When you use and (SIC) extension cord so you can plug your phone in while you’re in the bath.”

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Lovington Police Department have determined that the phone itself never was submerged …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: price and release date predictions

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is one of the most anticipated devices of the year for sure. On one hand, the Note family is usually considered as the most powerful Sammy devices of the year, filled to the brim with the latest hardware and features. On the other, since the Note 7 was such a spectacular failure, everyone is hoping that the 8 will be awesome enough to rectify the faults and forever remove that burn mark from Sammy’s reputation.

And yeah, we are getting impatient, we want it here, we want it now, and we’d love to know how much it will cost, so that we can …
