Apple's retail chief says Apple Stores won't upsell the iPhone X to customers


Imagine this scenario. You walk into the Apple Store near you sometime in 2018 and the location has a number of Apple iPhone X units running on one of the tables. But you walk right past the premium tenth anniversary model and pick up the Apple iPhone 8 because that is the model you want. And just as you are ready to pay for the device, a member of the Apple Store team starts to upsell you on the iPhone X. It has an OLED screen, a larger battery, and of course it features Face ID. And that edge-to-edge display is gorgeous. Before you know it, your $699 purchase has turned into a budget busting …

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 leaked retail box confirms Snapdragon 660 CPU and 6GB RAM inside


The second next big thing coming from Xiaomi, the Mi Note 3 will be unveiled in less than 24 hours alongside the company’s flagship, the Mi MIX 2. Little was known about the upcoming Mi Note series device since aside from a few confusing reports there were no accurate leaks about the Mi Note 3.

Well, one day ahead of the Mi Note 3’s official unveiling, we have clear information about the smartphone’s specs. Despite the fact that Xiaomi Mi Note 3 will probably be limited to China and a few other Asian countries (India?), this looks like a very solid choice for those looking for an affordable …

Final retail packaging for 10th anniversary iPhone cases show the iPhone 8 moniker?

Last week, we saw a couple of reports concerning the name that Apple will give its tenth anniversary iPhone model. Up to now, everyone has called this device the Apple iPhone 8. Last Friday, we passed along a report stating that this version of the iPhone will actually be called the Apple iPhone Edition. The same rumor mentioned that the sequels to the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be named the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus, respectively.

If that wasn’t enough to make your head spin, the very next day another rumor made its way around the water cooler. This time, the …

BlackBerry KEYone now available in physical Sprint retail stores

Sprint is the carrier to go in the United States if you are looking for exotic phones. The nation’s fourth largest mobile operator also sells the newest BlackBerry KeyOne phone, one of very few in 2017 to have a full QWERTY keyboard.
But up until now, you could only buy the BlackBerry KeyOne online, and you could not find it in Sprint’s physical retail stores. This changes today, as the carrier is bringing the phone to its network of brick and mortar stores, and you can just walk in and get yours.
The BlackBerry KeyOne …

New Nokia 3310 retail box lets you see the phone in all its glory

The new Nokia 3310 is a rather successful product. It can be safely labeled as the only handset in the feature phone category that has managed to generate any buzz in recent years, and current Nokia manufacturer HMD Global can certainly be pleased with the results achieved by the nostalgia-inducing so device far. 

Still, maintaining adequate sales figures over a prolonged period can be challenging, which is why HMD has resorted to a neat little marketing trick. You can now get the 2017 iteration of the legendary Nokia 3310 in an all-new retail …

More OnePlus 5 photos leak out, cases and retail box included

Since OnePlus couldn’t – and didn’t – want to keep too many secrets about the OnePlus 5, its upcoming flagship phone, we know quite a lot about the device. The handset will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a dual rear camera à la iPhone 7 Plus, and an overall design that also makes us think about Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone.

Shortly after we’ve seen what appear to be renders showing the front and back of the OnePlus 5, we can now check out another set of photos that seemingly present the upcoming phone in (and out of) its retail box. It’s not clear what the exact origin of the …

Moto Z2 Play retail box surfaces along with new pictures of the phone

Last week, a high resolution image of the Moto Z2 Play was discovered, along with an advertisement indicating that the device will be unveiled on June 1st. Even before the phone has been made official, there are some who are disappointed with Lenovo’s decision to use a 3000mAh battery on the device. That is a 15% decline from the 3510mAh cell used on the original Moto Z Play. The Snapdragon 626 chipset replaces the Snapdragon 625 that powered the Moto Z Play, and should be just as miserly with battery consumption. Despite the lower capacity battery, the Moto Z2 Play should still provide …

iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s reportedly on track for October retail

According to numerous reports over the past few months, Apple will be pulling out all of the stops to mark the ten year anniversary of the iPhone. As well as the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus — two phones we’d expect given Cupertino’s long-standing ‘tick-tock’ release cycle — it’s also possible that a special iPhone 8 will launch with an OLED display among other perks. As exciting as the iPhone 8 sounds in theory, bringing it to fruition has apparently been difficult, with some reports suggesting that it could be pushed back as far as November. A new tidbit runs with the slightly more promising notion …
