Samsung's Galaxy A9 Star pops up in new images revealing white variant

It’s currently unclear when Samsung will choose to unveil the Galaxy A9 Star (SM-G8850) officially, but after a video
allegedly showed off the smartphone’s final design, a set of new images give a much closer glimpse at the device, while also revealing a new color option in the process.

As seen in previous leaks, the newest images confirm a significant departure from Samsung’s usual design language in the hope of capturing the interest of Chinese consumers. This means the rear will now be adorned by an angular dual-camera setup that is positioned vertically in the top-left corner, reminiscent …


Exynos-based Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to be speedier than the Snapdragon variant

Samsung has made a habit out of launching its flagship phones with different processors (either Qualcomm Snapdragon, or Exynos), depending on the market. This was the case with the Galaxy S9 series – released earlier this year – and things won’t change with the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, which is expected to be announced sometime in the second half of 2018.
Not long after seeing a Snapdragon 845-based Galaxy Note 9 (model number SM-N960U) in a benchmark test, we’ve now spotted a test revealing a version of the phone that’s powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 9810 CPU. Similar …

The unveiling of Samsung’s next flagship is still at least a couple of months away but according to one tipster, the device could offer even more internal storage than Samsung’s most recent flagships, while also upping the RAM count.

Currently, the highest amount of internal storage Samsung offers for its Galaxy S9 series is 256GB, but the Galaxy Note 9 could be set to double this to 512GB, while also providing expansion via a microSD card slot. Furthermore, all of this could be coupled with a considerable 8GB of RAM. Now, it’s worth noting that despite the accurate track record of the …

Which LG G7 ThinQ color variant do you like most?

Last week, LG announced its latest and greatest flagship smartphone, the G7 ThinQ, showcasing four color variants of it. Called New Platinum Gray, New Aurora Black, New Moroccan Blue, and Raspberry Rose, all four colors are glossy and reflective – while this may not be apparent in promo images, real-life photos (like the first one seen below) do a better job at revealing the glossiness.
Right now, it’s unclear if all LG G7 ThinQ color variants will be available in the US. In any case, we want to know which of the four official colors you think suits the G7 best, so …

If you’re in need of an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you’d normally have to pay about $950 for it – that’s its official US price. Of course, various unlocked Note 8 deals have been around for months, but many of them don’t include US warranty, and all involve the 64 GB version of the handset.

Possible beefed up Samsung Galaxy J8 variant includes more RAM, Snapdragon CPU

Samsung is expected to unveil another set of Galaxy J smartphones soon, but we already have some information about at least two unannounced models. The first one, a certain Samsung Galaxy J8 popped up at Geekbench early this month with an Exynos 7870 processor and 3GB RAM.

Another Galaxy J smartphone has just been spotted at Geekbench and judging by the model number it seems to be an improved version of that one that we mentioned earlier, the Galaxy J8.

As such, let’s call it Galaxy J8 Plus since it packs slightly better specs than the regular model (SM-J800FN). The newly leaked smartphone …

Released in the US in the second half of 2017 for

HTC U11+ to have a "translucent" color variant


We’re only a few days away from HTC’s November 2 event, where
the company will likely unveil the high-end HTC U11+ (or U11 Plus), and maybe
the mid-range U11 Life, too.  

 

The U11+ is shaping up to be a very interesting smartphone.
Besides bringing various novelties – including a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio
display with pretty thin bezels – the handset may have a rare color
variant: translucent.

 

According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), translucent is one
of the three color versions of the HTC U11+, alongside black and silver. Normally,
translucent should mean that …
