Interesting Nokia 7 Plus (with tall 18:9 screen) and Nokia 1 leak out

Having sold more than 4 million smartphones in the last quarter of 2017, HMD Global (maker of Nokia-branded handsets) is certainly in a good position to release new phone models throughout 2018. 
Not long ago, we heard that a Nokia 7 Plus and a Nokia 1 should be launched sometime this year. HMD hasn’t confirmed their existence, but we can now take a pretty good look at both these upcoming devices – thanks to photos revealed by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks).

The first and most noticeable feature here is the unusual display size, listed as 2560 x 1312 pixels. Unless what we’re looking at is an error, this would mean the device will sport a display with a taller aspect ratio. And despite it being …

Tall, dark and handsome: Galaxy S8 finally leaked out for real, let's analyze it

After weeks of concept drawings, schematics and fanboy speculation, the latest Galaxy S8 image seems like a real press render, and is every bit as sleek as the rumors. A Guardian tech editor who leaked a lot about the upcoming handset a few weeks ago, already confirmed that the leak looks like what he has been shown, too.
At the time, those guys had two independent sources to verify the tip, so let’s analyze what we can grasp from what is probably the first real look at Samsung’s Galaxy S8, and how it overlaps with what we’ve heard so far about the next best thing …
