Can you pick a name for the iPhone X successor? (results)

We asked you last week what do you think the iPhone X successor name will be, and 42% of our 1879 respondents went with the “something else” category, which, judging from the bulk of comments, likely denotes an “iPhone Xs” answer, as Apple has traditionally marked the mid-cycle upgrades with “s” in the title. There was no iPhone 7s, though, and the iPhone X line is anything but ordinary, so the next most popular pick was iPhone XI, followed by iPhone 11. The iPhone Y title comes in last, making the switch from Roman numerals to letter highly unlikely in your opinion.

Samsung might be testing a powerful new dual-camera successor to Galaxy A5 (2017)

Samsung could be preparing to launch a beastly mid-ranger in the coming months. A new listing for a “Samsung SM-A5300″ model has recently appeared on popular smartphone benchmarking service Geekbench. Judging by the name, it is possible that this handset is a successor to the current Galaxy A5 (2017) which carries the model number SM-A5200. 

The tested device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is powered by the Snapdragon 660, the most potent 600-tier Qualcomm platform to date. Some of the most notable capabilities of the …

HP is experimenting with Android for a successor to the Elite X3, rumor claims

HP’s Elite X3 might just have been the best Windows 10 Mobile device nobody bought. Reasons for this include its considerably high price tag, its focus on the enterprise, as well as possibly its biggest problem: the fact it runs Windows. But even a company as badly mismanaged as HP (hey, remember that time they bought Palm and ran it right into the ground in just a year?) knows when it’s got a good idea, and a recent rumor suggests the company is working on a successor.

And that idea is a smartphone that, when connected to a dock, results in a seamless …

LG named as possible manufacturer of Google Pixel successor code-named "Taimen" [UPDATE]

New info regarding Google’s 2017 smartphone lineup surfaced yesterday, suggesting that the company may have scrapped its previous plans to release a direct successor to last year’s Pixel XL. For quite a while, we’ve been hearing that Google is in the process of testing three different models for this year’s Pixel lineup – successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL, as well as a third, larger device.

Google Home successor could feature built-in Wi-Fi router

Less than a year after Google unveiled its Assistant-powered Echo competitor, Google Home, there are murmurs that the Big G is working on a new iteration of its home speaker, and that it’s aiming to kill two birds with one stone with the new product.

An anonymous tipster speaking to the Information claims that Google’s next Home device will come with an integrated Wi-Fi router, which means that you won’t be needing another one. However, since most people already own a wireless router, the source claims that the Home speaker will be able to use existing routers to …
