Rumor: OnePlus 5T to launch on the 16th of November as an Amazon exclusive

So, there have been a lot of rumors around a possible new OnePlus phone recently. These stem from the fact that the OnePlus 5 is suddenly out of stock and can’t be bought, the fact that OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei and CEO Pete Lau have been teasing a new camera with some cryptic tweets, and that it was around this time last year when the OnePlus 3 was discontinued and the OnePlus 3T was introduced. It is speculated that the new handset would either be called OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6, jumping up a number entirely.

What do the rumors say so far? The major upgrade to the OnePlus 5T would allegedly …


OnePlus 5T/6 rumor review: specs, design, features, price and release date

The next OnePlus phone – expected to be called either the OnePlus 5T or OnePlus 6 – is right around the corner.
Less than half a year after the release of the popular OnePlus 5, the device is no longer available for purchase and the company known for its “Never Settle” slogan, seems ready to unveil its next big thing, a phone with a “bezel-less”, 18:9 screen and an improved camera.
So what do we know about the OnePlus 5T/6?
We sum up all the credible rumors about the next OnePlus, its specs, …

Rumor: Nokia 2, 7 and 9 may be officially introduced in early 2018

There’s a lot of talking surrounding HMD’s new wave of Nokia smartphones that might or might not be unveiled by the end of the year. At least one other high-end and another low-tier handsets are expected to make their way to the shelves in the coming months, but it’s still unclear when exactly that will happen.

Nokia 2 and 9 seem to be the next aces under HMD’s sleeve, but there might be a mid-range smartphone that goes by model number Nokia 7, which should complete the next lineup of Android handsets the Finnish company plans to unleash on the market.

However, …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro rumor review: design, specs, price, and everything else we know so far

After releasing its P10 and P10 Plus flagships in the early months of this year, Chinese phone maker Huawei is preparing to end 2017 with a bang. In case you haven’t heard, this “bang” will come in the form of Huawei’s Mate 10 series.
So, what makes the Mate lineup special? Well, the “go big or go home” philosophy that the company adopts when designing and manufacturing these phones. The presently available Mate 9 can be seen as a perfect example of this approach – the large phablet packs a 5.9-inch screen, powerful hardware, a Leica-branded dual main camera, and …

A third Google Pixel 2 named "Ultra pixel" in the works, last-minute rumor claims

When compared with its last-year predecessors, the Google’s Pixel 2 duo is shaping up to be somewhat weird — the smaller Pixel 2 is just about as safe as one would imagine — it’s essentially last year’s model, but with slightly upgraded internals and a barely tweaked design. Meanwhile, the Pixel 2 XL is said to be quite different in terms of looks, as it will adopt the new industry standard of the tall, bezel-less display.

And this is great and all, but at one point there were also rumors of a third Pixel phone, code named muskie, but that …

Rumor: HTC U11 Plus coming soon, near-bezel-less screen included

While announcing its $1.1 billion deal with Google today (under which certain HTC employees are joining the Mountain View giant), HTC also confirmed that it’s working on its “next flagship phone.” The company didn’t provide any details on this handset, but we may have some information on it anyway.

According to French website Frandroid (usually a reliable source), HTC plans to announce a high-end smartphone in November. Reportedly, the device is called U11 Plus, and will become HTC’s first handset to sport a near-bezel-less screen – a 5.99-inch display with 1440 …

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 rumor review: Design, specs, features, price, and all we know thus far

Despite the availability issues, it’s pretty safe to consider the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as two of the better top-end phones launched last year. Their most profound feature was the camera, which really set a high bar for all other flagships to jump over.
Of course, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that after the good start, Google will be willing to use the gained momentum and one-up itself and the competition in 2017 with the second generation of Pixel devices. Right now, we are not exactly sure if we will get treated to 2 or 3 new handsets as we’re hearing …

Samsung Gear S4 (Gear Sport) rumor review: specs, features, price, release date and all we know so far

Samsung will officially announce a brand new wearable device on August 30th at the IFA tech conference in Berlin, Germany, and chances are that it will be a new smartwatch. 
Is it time for the Samsung Gear S4 and what would it look like?
First, the name: it might not be the Gear S4. Samsung unveiled the Gear S3 exactly one year ago at IFA 2016, but one year after that launch, it seems more likely that its next generation smartwatch will be named “Samsung Gear Sport”.
Details …

Huawei Mate 10 Pro will be the only Mate 10 variant with a bezel-less design, new rumor claims

One of Huawei’s biggest market successes outside of its own home country is definitely the Mate 9, so it only makes sense we’ll be seeing a successor to it soon. And this has already been confirmed, thanks to a video showing off the device’s camera capabilities.

But many people out there probably don’t know that there’s actually four different devices bearing the Mate 9 name — though the Porsche Design and Pro one are pretty much identical, and the Lite is just a mid-ranger using the name for a cheap marketing boost. So the question remains, will …

Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S9 to get most of the initial Snapdragon 845 supply

This spring’s Android flagship crop was in large part dictated by Samsung and its decision to hoard the entire initial Snapdragon 835 supply for the North American version of its Galaxy S8. As a result, LG decided to use the last-gen Snapdragon 821 in its G6 instead, while others, including HTC, Xiaomi, and Sony, had to release their devices later.

And it seems this tactic worked well for the Korean giant, which is now rumored to do the very same thing in 2018 with the Snapdragon 845 and its next flagship, the Galaxy S9. The information comes from a …
