Motorola RAZR 5G photographed, shows redesigned chin

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 15:42:01 +0200

The Motorola RAZR 5G was first mentioned months ago, but it’s only now that we’re seeing tangible clues. After the first image of the new foldable leaked last week, now three new shots show the phone in the hand. The iconic chin seems to have been tempered down and the fingerprint reader has moved. Where to? Even Samsung’s Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G are not expected to have in-display readers, so maybe Motorola moved it to the side of the phone not seen in the photos. Motorola RAZR 5G in the hand Also, note the single camera – a recent rumor claimed that this cam will be upgraded...

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 14:04:01 +0200

Huawei has promised no delays in launching the Mate 40 lineup, and we expect it to arrive in September or October. So far we’ve been hearing only rumors and getting minor leaks, but today a somewhat more major detail was revealed - it appears the Mate 40 Pro smartphone will have 6.6” display with curved edges, ultra-thin bezels and there are no holes whatsoever for a selfie camera. Huawei Mate 40 Pro screen protector The Mate 40 Pro is obviously ditching the notched design, just like the Mate 40, as previous rumors suggested. The Huawei Mate devices have always been the...

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 13:13:02 +0200

TikTok found itself in hot water after President Trump expressed concerns about the app collecting data on American citizens and the threat that poses to national security. Owner ByteDance has so far been unsuccessful in working out a deal with the US government so an alternative solution is proposed – Microsoft could acquire TikTok. The software giant officially confirmed that CEO Satya Nadella has been in talks with the President as well as ByteDance. Microsoft “is committed to acquiring TikTok subject to a complete security review and providing proper economic benefits to the United...

Sony to release three 2021 flagship sizes, Compact and Premium make a comeback

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 12:31:01 +0200

It seems like it's a bit too early for 2021 leaks but the kind of year we are having few things can surprise us. This one user in Android Police is one of those looking ahead and shared some interesting information regarding Sony's upcoming flagship series in 2021. According to his sources, Sony plans to bring back the Compact and Premium variants of its flagship. This seems to be in line with the current trends as most of the companies are introducing at least three flagship models. He also adds that this year, the company will skip the small flagship form factor. Normally a single...

Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition Image leaks

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 11:34:02 +0200

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition is often talked about, but it hasn’t been seen until now – @evleaks published this render of the front of the device, which (unsurprisingly) appears quite similar the current S20 models, though it's not quite identical either. According to rumors, the Fan Edition will be based on the Galaxy S20+ as it will feature a 120 Hz 6.5-6.7” screen and a 4,500 mAh battery and these specs match up with the plus model.

OnePlus to introduce Hydrogen OS 11 on August 10

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 07:20:01 +0200

OnePlus is already preparing its next OS version, and its first reveal will take place on August 10 at 2PM. It will come with new visual components, new functional features and what the company calls “brand-new interactive concept”. The big caveat is the announcement is made on Weibo - the Chinese social media, meaning OnePlus will introduce Hydrogen 11 - the China-bound alternative to OxygenOS 11 that comes without Google services and with local alternatives. The good news is that the company is clearly working on its next OS and once everything is cleared in China, it should be...

Oppo Watch hands-on review

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 06:32:01 +0200

Introduction On Friday, Oppo announced that it will release its Watch to global markets. The Oppo Watch (which even sounds like 'Apple Watch' in addition to being very close to it designwise) is the Chinese phone maker's first Wear OS smartwatch. The Chinese variant runs a modified version of Android 8.1, but the global variant has a couple of key differences. The first is the inclusion of the Snapdragon 3100 Wear platform, which is almost two years old at this point, but is the fastest chipset available for wearables from Qualcomm. In contrast, the Chinese version of the Watch runs...

Week 31 in review: Galaxy M31s, Reno4 duo debut alongside Black Shark 3S and Red Magic 5S

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 02:17:01 +0200

Week 31 brought us a bunch of new phones, starting with the Samsung Galaxy M31s. The new leader of the Korean company's lower mid-range lineup comes with a 6.5” AMOLED, quad cameras and 6,000 mAh battery. Oppo made a couple of major announcements itself with the Reno4 and Reno4 Pro. Red Magic and Black Shark gaming brands also unveiled their latest flagships with the 5S and 3S, rounding up a pretty exciting lineup of new phones. Qualcomm had an announcement of its own - Quick Charge 5 and while it can't be seen on any phone just yet, it's certainly something to look forward...

OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z vs Oppo Enco M31

Sun, 02 Aug 2020 22:22:01 +0200

The Bullets Wireless Z are OnePlus' pair of neckband-style Bluetooth wireless earbuds that were launched alongside the OnePlus 8 series. They are a cheaper version of the company's Bullets Wireless 2, with reduced material quality and driver count but in exchange offered a tremendously improved battery life. When I reviewed them a couple of months ago, I called them the best product in their price category. Then last month I reviewed the Oppo Enco M31, and things changed a bit. The M31 have the same form factor as the Bullets Wireless Z but didn't quite promise the same battery...

Top 10 trending phones of week 31

Sun, 02 Aug 2020 18:14:01 +0200

Week 31 was as turbulent as the one before it with new announcements causing big movements in our trending chart. One of the newly unveiled phones - the Samsung Galaxy M31s was above all, shooting straight to the top, knocking the OnePlus Nord down to second. Another newly unveiled phone completes the podium with the Black Shark 3S getting the bronze medal. The upcoming Redmi K30 Ultra featured in a couple of major leaks, which got enough attention to get the fourth place as the Redmi Note 9 Pro slid down to fifth. In sixth we have the Oppo Reno4, which surprisingly replaced the...

Weekly poll: is the new Oppo Reno4 Pro any good?

Sun, 02 Aug 2020 14:13:01 +0200

Today we want to talk about four phones - the Oppo Reno4 Pro and Reno3 Pro. No, we didn't count wrong, there's four of them. Part of the problem is that Oppo releases different-specced models for the Chinese market and if that's all there was, we wouldn't have an issue. But there's some overlap. Let's start with the global Oppo Reno4 Pro which was announced this week. It has a 6.5" AMOLED display (1080p+ resolution), which impresses with its 90Hz refresh rate and 1,100 nits peak brightness. Also, the 4,000 mAh battery charges at a whopping 65W - 5 minutes of charging is all you need for 4...

Flashback: the Sony Ericsson K800 was as versatile as James Bond and the first Cyber-shot phone

Sun, 02 Aug 2020 10:12:01 +0200

The Sony Ericsson K800 was a phone with many faces. From one angle it looked like a Cyber-shot digital camera, from another like a phone, look at the left side and you’ll see a button for the music player, inside was a capable graphics chip for 3D gaming. It was released in mid-2006 and became the first Sony Ericsson phone to officially sport the Cyber-shot logo. It deserved it too, as the 3.2 MP camera on its back was among the best mobile shooters of the time. It was covered up with a sliding lens cover that automatically launched the camera when opened. The phone really did look...

Weekly poll results: OnePlus Nord fails to live up to the hype

Sun, 02 Aug 2020 06:06:01 +0200

The hype train has left the station, but it’s not headed towards record sales – last week’s poll shows that OnePlus may have overdone it with promotion of the Nord as the phone doesn’t live up to the expectations of half of voters. Everyone seems to have their own issue with the device – it’s not a fully original design, the camera setup could have been better, there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack, it’s too big and so on. One in three are happy with the Nord as it is and perhaps that will be enough to hit the company’s sales targets. Otherwise this “new beginning” that OnePlus has been...

Wednesday can't come soon enough - the Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra will be announced next week and we're as excited as you are. While we're counting the days until the Unpacked event, a set of official renders for the phones' accessory cases has come our way, courtesy of Roland Quandt. What we believe is a non-exhaustive assortment of cases includes a plain leather cover for the back and sides - we can tell it's not silicone from the texture when looking up close.

Nokia C3 pops up on Geekbench

Sat, 01 Aug 2020 23:05:01 +0200

A few days ago, an unknown Nokia device codenamed "GamoraPlus" was spotted on Geekbench, which we now know is the Nokia C3 since a new listing has appeared in the benchmark database confirming the name. The Geekbench listing also includes a few specs of the Nokia C3. The OS is Android 10, a Unisoc SoC with an octa-core processor having a base frequency of 1.2GHz is at the helm, and RAM is 3GB.

Promo video for Sony WH-1000XM4 ANC headphones leaked ahead of announcement

Sat, 01 Aug 2020 21:10:02 +0200

Sony is teasing an audio-centric event for next week and we're all but certain it will be the WH-1000XM4 active noise-canceling headphones that will make a debut on August 6. Thanks to a leaked video, we now get a glimpse of what's new on the upcoming model compared to the already excellent XM3s. Let's just say it's not a lot, but then again there wasn't much to be improved on. Perhaps the single most useful addition is the wear sensor that will pause your music when you take the headphones off your ears and resume playback when you put them back on - a notable omission on the previous...

The newest deals on Misfit's Wear OS smartwatches are almost too good to be true

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 10:19:00 -0500

It's safe to say that Misfit is not the most famous or popular Wear OS smartwatch vendor in the world right now, and because Wear OS itself is not a very successful software platform, we can assume this Fossil-owned brand is not exactly swimming in demand for devices like the Vapor X.

But while that might explain why we're seeing the entire Misfit Vapor family deeply discounted for , the newly reduced prices of these Android and iOS-compatible wearable devices are leaving us scratching our heads in disbelief. We're talking the good kind of disbelief, mind you, as the 2019-released ...

Best budget 5G phones in 2020

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 08:23:00 -0500

2020 is the year of 5G. Or at least it should have been if a bunch of other, way more important things didn’t happen. Nevertheless, mobile carriers around the world are expanding their 5G networks at a rapid pace and 5G devices are now far from the niche products they were last year.

The good news is that the wave of new 5G-capable phones also brought in some devices that are far from the premium prices we expected these phones to sell at initially. That’s largely thanks to Qualcomm’s efforts to pair its 5G modem with some mid-tier system chips, giving manufacturers more flexibility in terms ...

The best iPhone fast chargers in 2020

Mon, 03 Aug 2020 02:55:00 -0500

Smartphones are extremely powerful and capable nowadays, but there is one critical link that can turn a fantastic device into a nuisance - the battery. Even if battery capacity isn't an issue, phones need to charge eventually, and people often overlook the importance of a fast charger and the convenience it brings to the table.

The ability to quickly top up the battery or significantly cut charging times is sometimes invaluable. And while this year's iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max ship with an 18W fast charger, you won't get the same treatment if you opt for the standard iPhone 11. This model ...
