The mysterious Galaxy S9 “lite” that has been making the rumor rounds lately may actually be a real phone that is going to be released soon at a price yet unknown. There were already a few press shots leaked of the downgraded S9, and it looks pretty in the new Burgundy Red that the S9 is also going to get.
Infinity Display design or not, let’s face it, a 6.3″ panel makes for a huge handset, no matter the screen aspect ratio, how much Samsung has trimmed the bezels of the Note 8, or curved its sides.
It looks like 2018 shapes up to be a great year for Google. After officially revealing Android P earlier this week, Google is readying for yet another major event where the Mountain View company is likely to announce two Pixel smartphones.
However, according to leakster Evan Blass, Google plans to introduce its first Pixel-branded watch this fall along with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. However, those waiting for Google’s own wearables to make it to market will be pleased to know the company is actually working on three different smartwatches.

The Galaxy S9 will feature a “reimagined” variable aperture camera, faster chipset, and new color options, but all that jazz won’t come cheap, it seems. Dovetailing with a renowned leakster’s tip that the S9 and S9+ may be the most expensive Galaxy S-line phones ever, comes one unnamed “source in the UK mobile phone deals industry,” who informs us of the same:
Hot on the heels of the rumor that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be the most expensive duo in the history of the Galaxy S line now comes a report out of Samsung’s home country that reiterate that speculation, albeit for the home turf of South Korea. The two phones will be available on all three major carriers in Korea, but “although the domestic price of the Galaxy S9 will increase, it will be decided at a level where consumers do not feel burdened,” divulged a source from inside one of those carriers.
The rumors that Apple will be utilizing an L-shaped battery in the iPhone X actually materialized, though not to the extent initially thought. The usage of stacked system board in the X allowed Apple to fit all chippery in half the space the motherboard is taking in, say, the iPhone 8 Plus, leaving plenty of room for another battery cell underneath it. As a result, the iPhone X, which in size is not much larger than the iPhone 8, has a much higher, 2716 mAh battery capacity.
