Alleged CAD renders of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite surface with a 16:9 screen and dual cameras

Huawei’s Mate 10 — or to be more specific, three different devices all bearing the name — is coming in just a month. So it’s not that surprising that we’re seeing an increasing amount of leaks about the series, though we still have very little info on the regular Mate 10, rather than its Pro and Lite siblings.

But today we seem to have another possible look at one of the three devices — the Mate 10 Lite — this time in (potato quality) CAD render format. Design-wise, it looks pretty consistent with the design we saw in OnLeaks’ schematics-based …


New Huawei Mate 10 renders surface

Huawei itself teased us last month by showing off all of its handsets that featured a dual-camera setup. All of the models had already been released except for the one that had an October 16th unveiling date listed; this is the Huawei Mate 10. The excitement is building for the Mate 10, thanks to the home grown Kirin 970 SoC that will power the phone. Built using the 10nm process, the octa-core CPU utilizes the bigLITTLE architecture with four powerful Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores to handle light housekeeping.

Besides supporting clock speeds up to 2.8GHz, the Mali-G71 …

Official renders of Sony's Xperia XZ1 Compact reveal a plastic outer shell

After we saw the first official renders of Sony’s upcoming flagship Xperia XZ1, it was all but inevitable its downsized twin, the Xperia XZ1 Compact, would be next in line. So here we are today — Roland Quandt has now given us our first actual look at the device (CAD-based renders notwithstanding), presumably once again sourced from a premature Amazon listing.

And as expected from Sony, the design matches the bigger XZ1 pretty closely, but with a couple of important changes. Besides the smaller size and increased thickness, there’s one thing that …

Alcatel A7 specs and press renders leaked out ahead of IFA announcement

Alcatel is expected to introduce a handful of Android smartphones at IFA in early September. A few of them have already been leaked such as the Alcatel U5 HD, A3 Plus, and A7 XL.

But these are not the only device Alcatel plans to announce in less than two weeks. Apparently, there’s a regular Alcatel A7 on the way as well, which be launched alongside the A7 XL model.

The Alcatel A7 is a solid mid-range smartphone that runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750T processor, coupled with either 3 or 4GB RAM, and 32GB expandable …

Fitbit smartwatch renders show why the device might be a "must-own" for certain people

Back on August 10th, we showed you leaked renders of the new Fitbit smartwatch. Fitbit needs to hit a grand slam with this product, especially after its share of the global wearables market has declined 45% year-over-year. A new report published today reveals that Fitbit just might have something up its sleeve that will make its smartwatch a “must-own” product for those who are ill and need to track certain readings produced by their body.

The leaked image shows that Fitbit will be using two red LED sensors on the back of its timepiece. That compares with the use of two green sensors on …

New LG V30 renders leak out

While LG shared plenty of things about its upcoming V30 smartphone (including details about its cameras and user interface), the device won’t be properly unveiled before August 31 – that’s two weeks from now. However, we’ve already seen the V30 in some screenshots snapped from a leaked video.

Today, we can take another look at the handset – this time thanks to clear renders revealed by the ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). These appear to be press renders that LG itself will be using to promote the new smartphone once it fully announces it.

As expected, the V30 looks like …

First Huawei Mate 10 renders leaked out along with some specs

The first renders of what appears to be Huawei’s next flagship, the Mate 10, have just arrived and they’re looking pretty darn good. Huawei Mate 10 will be a bezel-less phablet with a massive 6.1-inch display with Quad HD resolution.

The back side reveals a dual-camera setup featuring Leica lens, dual LED flash and OIS (optical image stabilization). The fingerprint sensor is positioned below the primary camera since the phone doesn’t come with a Home button on the front side, and Huawei hasn’t been able to put it under the display.

Unfortunately, the top …

Final version of Fitbit smartwatch leaks in press renders

Fitbit acquired two smartwatch companies before launching a product of its own: Pebble and Vector Watch. Although a new Fitbit smartwatch was supposed to make its debut in Q2, the company announced the wearable device is on track for a Q4 release, just in time for the holiday shopping season.

A handful of pictures showing the upcoming Fitbit smartwatch leaked out back in May, so if you’ve seen those images, then you won’t be surprised by those that surfaced today.

The folks over at Wareable published a few press renders of the Fitbit smartwatch showing the …

Asus accidentally leaked four upcoming ZenFone 4 models, complete with renders, specs, and prices

Asus is a master of confusion when it comes to its smartphones’ names — even if we disregard that it’s the only manufacturer out there using numbers to denominate generations instead of models (so ZenFone 3 is the name of a whole bunch of devices, instead of just one), the company also has a fondness for releasing multiple device models under the same name in different regions. This is how we get one ZenFone 3 Deluxe that is considerably better than another ZenFone 3 Deluxe.

However, Asus is definitely not a master when it comes to not prematurely …

Olixar cases for the Pixel 2 pop up, renders of the phone included

So, before hot phones hit the market, case makers start gearing up, racking on various case models, preparing for a spike in sales. During this period, some cases may pop up on various mobile accessory websites, with computer-generated images of the case, with a render of what the phone is expected to look like inside. This render is usually not officially confirmed by the phone maker or anything, but taken from all the leaks that we see day in and day out.

What’s curious about this specific set of cases is that it shows renders of the upcoming Pixel 2, which we haven’t seen before. The …
