First Xiaomi Mi 5X video teaser released ahead of July 26 official reveal

Xiaomi’s next Android smartphone is not going to be a flagship, as the Chinese company readies a mid-range product that will be announced on July 26. More importantly, the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5X will probably be among the cheapest smartphones to feature a dual-camera setup.

With less than 48 hours until the official reveal of the Mi 5X, Xiaomi published the first video that highlights some of the most important features of the mid-range smartphone. The 15-second video offers a glimpse at the phone’s dual-camera and overall design.

Asus ZenFone 4 series gets official teaser, launch seems imminent

Asus is timidly unveiling its new lineup of smartphones, the ZenFone 4. Four or five new ZenFone 4 handsets are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks, although one of them was announced early this month.

The ZenFone 4 Max was officially introduced in Russia, but aside from the $235 price, nothing else has been confirmed about the smartphone’s availability outside this country.

Four other Asus smartphones are supposed to make their debut on the market as early as August: Asus ZenFone 4, Asus ZenFone 4 Pro, Asus ZenFone 4 Selfie, and Asus ZenFone …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 spotted in Samsung Exynos 9 teaser?

Strange things happen sometimes. Out of the blue, Samsung Exynos’ Twitter account posted this teaser image marketing the Exynos series 9 mobile application processors. From a distance, the phone you are seeing on it might seem like the Galaxy S8. Maybe it’s the angle, but looking at how the upper bezel is noticeably thinner, and the side bezel is basically non-existent, we can’t help but think that this is the Note 8, hidden in plain sight! The Galaxy s8 doesn’t really look like this, and neither does any other phone, for that matter.

Given that the Note 8 is reportedly …

Originally discovered on weibo, an alleged teaser for the OnePlus 5 was posted today by internet tipster slashleaks. The image shows what is claimed to be the OnePlus 5’s back cover. Unlike other recently disseminated images claiming to show the phone, this one has the dual cameras on the back positioned horizontally.

A lozenge shaped flash unit appears adjacent to the camera module, and the OnePlus logo …

New teaser image suggests the OnePlus 5 is smaller than the OnePlus 3T

OnePlus just posted a teaser image on Twitter, suggesting that its upcoming OnePlus 5 smartphone will be smaller than the company’s current flagship handset (OnePlus 3T).

The new teaser image – seen above – shows the OnePlus 3T on top of another device, while OnePlus says: “Look into the shadows. What do you 5ee?” Obviously, this can only mean that a brand new OnePlus 5 is hiding under that 3T.

HTC U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording, new video teaser suggests

HTC wants us to get excited about its upcoming flagship smartphone – the HTC U 11. The handset will be officially announced next week, on May 16, but, before that, HTC released a new video teaser to keep our interest piqued.

HTC’s new video – embedded above – is quite short, and is accompanied by a “360 real-life recording” caption. From this, we can conclude that the U 11 will feature 360-degree sound recording – or maybe 360-degree video recording, too? This is the second U 11 feature that HTC is (kind of) confirming, after the phone’s squeezable frame – apparently …

HTC U 11 video teaser released ahead of May 16 unveil

HTC has already confirmed it will announce its next flagship smartphone on May 16. The device will be launched on the market as HTC U 11, but we have yet to learn when exactly it will be available and how much it will cost.

Since HTC can’t tell us too much about the upcoming U 11 handset, the Taiwanese company released a video teaser that emphasizes on the smartphone’s unique touch-sensitive edges that can interpret gestures into various actions.

The HTC U 11 allows users to “squeeze” it in order to take advantage of this unique gesture system, so the video …

The HTC U (Ocean) will be unveiled on May 16, check out the official invitation and a teaser video

It appears that HTC has pretty much given up on subtlety at this point. We’ve just received an invitation to an event, which, unless the company is for some reason pulling the ol’ bait-and-switch, will surely be dedicated to the unveiling of the much-rumored HTC U (Ocean) flagship.

Let’s look at the clues: first off, there’s the tagline, “Squeeze for the brilliant”, which is… an interesting choice to say the least. It’s accompanied by the letter U as seen on the U Ultra and U Play’s branding materials, but here it’s also squished from the sides to …
