T-Mobile Revvl Plus to launch on November 17th; 6-inch phablet offers dual camera setup for $200

Back in August, T-Mobile introduced the Revvl, a budget priced phone for T-Mobile customers who “want a boatload of features without spending a boatload.” The phone carries a 5.5-inch HD screen (720 x 1280 resolution), 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, all powered by a 3000mAh battery. Priced at $150, the Revvl is a capable handset giving bargain hunters a lot of bang for their buck.

The beautifully crafted Honor 7X said to pack dual-camera setup and 5.93-inch display

Honor already sent invitations for its unveiling event set to take place in China on October 11. That’s one week after the Google’s big Pixel 2 reveal and five days before Huawei announces its new Mate series.

However, the Honor 7X, the smartphone that will be introduced next month, will not be competing with either of the two series of flagships since this will be a mid-range device.

Although the smartphone will be initially launched in China, it’s safe to say that it will be rolled out to other countries as well. Honor 7X is said to hit the shelves …

Apple announced yesterday that unlike previous versions of the Apple Watch, the new Series 3 model does not need to be paired to a nearby iPhone for internet access, or to make/take phone calls.

Last month, an analyst from Hana Financial Investment named Kim Rok-ho, said that he expects the Samsung Galaxy S9 to feature a dual camera setup. Another analyst, Park Hyug-woo from Shinhan Investment, predicted that dual cameras will appear on the back of both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. With all due respect to those two analysts, the tech world doesn’t get terribly excited until such a proclamation comes from an analyst with a proven track record, like KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo.

Photos claim to show final design of the Moto X4 dual-camera setup

The unthinkable happened a couple of days ago when reliable source Evan Blass (@evleaks) admitted that the render he revealed last month as the camera design for the Moto X4, was not the final design. But Blass did the right thing and posted an image that supposedly does show the final version of the rear-facing dual camera setup. The final version of the camera has the dual LED flash units on the top of the module; the original image had the flash units on the bottom.

Similar to the way the dual camera set-up has been deployed on the Motorola Moto Z2 Force, one of the two sensors will take …

As much as there is excitement surrounding the new smartphone venture helmed by none other than the father of Android himself, there is no shortage of controversy tied to it either. But let’s leave all that aside for a moment, and instead of mulling over how the Essential phone could fail, let’s instead take a look at one of its most exciting features—no, not the almost edge-to-edge display—the dual camera setup on its back!

Although …
