Samsung Galaxy S9 case render allegedly shows off some of the new flagship's looks


A render of a Samsung Galaxy S9 case from Ghostek just might give away enough information about the 2018 flagship model to make you start salivating. Unveiling the handset on the day before the MWC keynote takes place in Barcelona is a tradition for the Galaxy S that had to be broken this year. If Samsung returns to that tradition, a February 25th introduction could take place. But Sammy would love to get a quick jump on Apple and its other rivals by introducing the Samsung Galaxy S9 in January.

The render shows a major change to the positioning of the rear-facing fingerprint scanner, …


Alleged Huawei Nova 3 shows its iPhonesque silhouette in leaked pictures

Huawei is expected to launch a brand new mid-range Android smartphone, as a sequel to the Nova 2 that made its debut on the market back in August. The new phone is likely to be called Huawei Nova 3 and it will come with improved features over the predecessor.

A set of pictures that allegedly show the unannounced Huawei Nova 3 have just been leaked from China. Rumor has it, the smartphone will be powered by a Kirin 670 processor, coupled with either 3 or 4GB RAM, as well as 32GB or 64GB internal memory.

The main highlight of the smartphone is the 5.93-inch …

OnePlus 5T shows toughness in a series of grueling durability tests

Over the years, Chinese phone maker OnePlus has produced some great value-for-money smartphones that have not disappointed in terms of build quality. But can the same be said about the company’s latest flagship, the OnePlus 5T? Popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything has decided to find out by subjecting the device to his famous durability test.
Starting off with the usual screen scratch test, the OnePlus 5T manages to hold its own. Thanks to Gorilla Glass 5, the phone scratches at a point where any 2017 …

Another teaser shows the bezel-less display of the HTC U11+

HTC is expected to unveil a new smartphone on November 2. It remains to be seen whether or not the Taiwanese company will unleash another flagship or just a mid-ranger.

What we do know is that the forthcoming device will feature a single lens camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a bezel-less display. The latter appears in a brand new teaser tweeted by HTC earlier today.

Although we’re only offered a glimpse of what’s to come, it pretty obvious that HTC has decided to slim down the dimensions of the bezels and make its upcoming device more pleasant …

Really short video shows how app switching works on iPhone X

Apple’s first iPhone to ditch the home button, the iPhone X will go on pre-order on October 27. Even though it was announced along with two other smartphones – iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple needed a little bit more time to bring it to the masses.

Although Apple revealed some details about the iPhone X, there are many things that haven’t been covered during the official presentation of the handset. That’s why almost anything related to the iPhone X is a hot subject these days.

If you’ve been following our news feed, then you might have seen the YouTube …

Latest video of Apple iPhone X shows how the notch might interfere with some apps

With the launch of the Apple iPhone X less than two-weeks away, a new video of the tenth anniversary model in the wild has been disseminated. The clip reveals that not all apps appear to be optimized to perfectly fit the new 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display. Even though the video is only 9-seconds in length, we do get to see how Instagram looks on the phone, and some are not going to be happy with what they see.

The Instagram heading is too close to the dreaded notch at the top of the iPhone X screen, and appears not to be aligned correctly. The picture and video sharing app won’t …

Alleged OnePlus 5T leak shows us a full-screen front, fingerprint scanner migration

So, the OnePlus 5 is gone — you can no longer buy it. What? Why? Well, that’s a bit of a mystery. Less than a year after releasing its latest “flagship killer”, OnePlus claims that they are all out of phone units.

Obviously, this is stirring up speculation that we are about to see a OnePlus 5T — a slightly updated phone, just like what the OnePlus 3T was to the OnePlus 3 last year. And OnePlus being inexplicably vague and stirring controversy is kind of the go-to move when the company is prepping up a marketing campaign. It’s a company built on user curiosity, word of mouth, and the first …

HTC's bezel-less U11 Plus allegedly shows up in benchmarks, reveals specs

At this point most tech enthusiasts know about the Google/HTC deal where the latter sold a bunch of its talent and intellectual property to the former. And at least for a while this is going to be the most interesting fact about the troubled Taiwanese phone maker — until it starts releasing new noteworthy devices, to be exact.

And if what we’ve been hearing is true, this might come sooner than most people expect — invites seem to have been sent out for a November 2 launch event a couple of days ago. And from what we know, there will be at least …

Video shows that Apple CEO Tim Cook is carrying the iPhone X with him

Production delays for the Apple iPhone X, you say? It will be impossible to pick one up until the middle of next year, you say? Well, that obviously isn’t the case if your name is Tim Cook and you’re the CEO of Apple. Back in August, a picture of the executive showed the outline of what was rumored to be the iPhone X in his pants pocket. With that picture, it was impossible to tell exactly which phone Cook was packing. Today, a new video makes it clear that the Chief Executive carries the iPhone X in his right pocket.

The video at the top of this story was taken last week at a Q&A …

A true edge-to-edge screen: a new prototype phone shows what the future could look like

“Bezel-less” phones with taller, 18:9 screens are becoming the norm among flagships as they maximize screen real estate, but making a true bezel-less phone is hard. For starters, you have an earpiece and a front camera to think about, as well as a range of other sensors. So how do you do it?

Here is an idea: resurrect the old slider form factor of phones. Sounds crazy, but it makes sense as the bottom slide out part can actually house all of those things.
After all, you don’t want anything interrupting the all-screen design. And yes, phones might end …
