Huawei P20 prototype unit leaks in live pictures, leaves nothing to the imagination

Huawei has found a way to set its phones apart from the competition: three rear-cameras. The P20 will skip Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year, but the Chinese handset maker has already confirmed its flagship will be unveiled on March 27.

As expected, there hasn’t been any lack of information regarding the Huawei P20’s specs, but images with the phone haven’t been leaked yet. The most recent picture allegedly showing the flagship might not be legit, so we have yet to learn what exactly the P20 looks like.

Now the folks over at AndroidAuthority got their hands on a set of Huawei …


Galaxy S7 edge unit mysteriously receives Android Oreo update, see the software in this video

Well, folks, it has happened. After several months of testing, Samsung is finally beginning to roll out an official version of its Android Oreo-based Samsung Experience 9.0 overlay. As expected, the first Samsung handsets receiving the update are the Galaxy S8 and S8+. What’s surprising, though, is that the software has also recently landed on a Galaxy S7 edge unit in Vietnam. 

The above screenshot is in Vietnamese, but we can clearly see that the 1.4GB update is intended for the Galaxy S7 edge since it carries a model …

iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit captured in live pictures shows its shiny glass back side

With probably about a month away from the official reveal of Apple’s new iPhones, leaked information and images continue to add to the puzzle, so it won’t be long until we can see the bigger picture here.

Speaking of pictures, it looks like an iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit has been captured in live images. One of the smartphones that will be announced by Apple in September, the iPhone 7s Plus has a glass back instead of “standard” aluminum.

The overall design of the iPhone 7s Plus is not much different from the current model, although we aren’t offered a look …

New iPhone 8 dummy unit video reportedly provides the "closest look" at Apple's first 5.8-inch handset

Last week, we talked about a couple of photos showing an iPhone 8 dummy unit that might look like the real iPhone 8 that Apple is getting ready to announce sometime later this year. Today, the same iPhone 8 dummy unit showed up in a hands-on video that lets us better envision what Apple’s next big thing could be all about.

Revealed by @OnLeaks (one of the web’s most reliable sources when it comes to leaks and unofficial information) in collaboration with Tiger Mobiles, this iPhone 8 dummy reportedly provides “the closest look yet” at Apple’s upcoming handset.

As you can see for …

Take a peek at the first iPhone 8 dummy unit that actually looks like a real product

Another day, another alleged iPhone 8 dummy unit has been spotted online. However, this time the pictures come from a somewhat reputable source, serial leakster @OnLeaks, and also for the first time ever their subject actually looks like a real product that may hit the store shelves soon, instead of an incomplete attempt at recreating one.
Or in other words, consider this as the closest thing we’ve gotten to a real look at the iPhone 8 so far. So let’s dive in:
The front of the dummy shows us little we haven’t seen …

Shiny iPhone 8 dummy unit gets shown off in brief hands-on video

It’s not the most exciting 10 seconds of footage you have seen, but it is giving us something to look at. Designer and smartphone information leaker Benjamin Geskin published a video of him fondling a ‘dummy unit’ of the next iPhone.

A dummy is just a dummy – a lifeless mockup of a design that, in this case, may or may not be the real thing. It certainly looks credible and lovingly shiny, though, while the supposed stainless steel frame seems sturdy as ever. The vertical dual camera setup on the back is also present, quite likely to be an actual characteristic …

Encased Nokia 9 prototype unit gets the hands-on treatment

Since HMD Global announced it would start launching Nokia-branded smartphones, the Finnish company unveiled three handsets: Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.

All three are about to make their debut in just about every market across the world in the coming weeks. However, these won’t be the only Nokia smartphones HMD plans to launch this year, as reports claim 3 or 4 more handsets will follow in the second half of 2017.

Nokia 9 is said to be HMD’s flagship for this year, one that hasn’t been officially introduced yet. Still, fans anxious to learn more about the …

Purported iPhone 8 dummy unit pictured with vertical dual cameras and under-screen fingerprint scanner

Designer and occasional leaker Benjamin Geskin claims to have obtained a dummy – more precisely, a CNC-machined model – of the upcoming iPhone 8. However, it’s difficult to discern which photos depict a physical unit, and which are a very good modeling job.

We are only certain about the pic showing the iPhone’s display, because Geskin ‘shopped it over a purported photo of the dummy unit. Do note that the screen he envisions covers the entire front, although there’s an overlay depicting the bottom bezel typical of all iPhones up to now.

Although the phone appears rather thick, Geskin …

Samsung Galaxy S8+ prototype unit features dual-camera lens setup

The Galaxy S8 and its big brother were revealed last week, and customers in selected markets can already pre-order the flagships. We’ll certainly give you our take on Samsung’s latest smartphone in an in-depth review, but let’s take a moment and highlight one of the features that might not be such a significant improvement over the previous Galaxy S model, the camera.

Samsung announced the Galaxy S8 and S8+ feature a single-lens 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-pixel technology, just like the Galaxy S7. The South Korean company will use two suppliers for the camera: Sony and Samsung. …
