Sony’s next flagship phone could be the ‘Xperia 1’

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Sony's device naming scheme for Xperia phones has been confusing for years. The 'XZ' line of phones serve as the company's mainstream devices (akin to a Galaxy S device), with the 'XZ Premium' phones being ultra-flagships (like a Galaxy Note or LG V phone). On top of that, there are budget devices under several monikers, like the L2, R1, and XA2.

It looks like Sony might be switching up its naming scheme, according to information obtained by Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter).

Google’s Pixel 4 may offer improved dual-SIM functionality, according to an AOSP commit

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

This isn't widely-known information, but the Pixel 2 and 3 can technically act as dual-SIM devices thanks to their eSIM support. eSIM is only used by a few carriers around the world, including Sprint in the US, but it can act as a second SIM alongside the hardware SIM when activated. However, Google appears set to improve dual-SIM in the upcoming Pixel 4.

There are actually several different versions of dual-SIM: Dual SIM, Single Standby (DSSS); Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS); and Dual SIM, Dual Active (DSDA).

LG rumored to offer second-screen attachment with upcoming phone

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Remember LG's ill-fated Friends modules — you know, that one camera grip thing and the other DAC add-on that never came to the US for the poorly-made G5? The company apparently didn't learn its lesson, as CNET is now reporting that it could be unveiling a phone with a second-screen add-on at MWC next month.

According to someone close to the project, this attachment would potentially double the screen size, and it would debut alongside several other LG phones at MWC.

Citing sources familiar with Samsung's plans, Variety claims that Samsung is working with Google to bring Assistant to its TVs. The functionality could be announced as early as next month, possibly at CES 2019.

Nokia 9 PureView with five rear cameras could be real after all

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

A couple of months ago, we saw some supposed leaked images of a Nokia phone with five cameras on the back. It wasn't enough to go on at the time and looked like it could be a crazy fake, but new information leads us to believe such a device is indeed coming.

These images come from the usually reliable @OnLeaks, in partnership with 91mobiles. He's provided a selection of renders, some in 5K, and a 360-degree video.

Google Pixel 3 AI camera features will include Top Shot, Photobooth, and Super Res Zoom

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

We're just hours away from the launch of the Pixel Ultra 3 and 3 XL and with so many leaks we're wondering if there will be any surprises at all. Since none of the leaked devices up to now have had final software, we were hoping there would be some new things for Google to introduce today, particularly when it comes to imaging. A new report dashes those hopes rather, revealing the Pixel 3's camera features.

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Thanks to renders based on factory CAD designs, we're getting our first look at the next incarnation of Lenovo/Moto's popular mid-range smartphone. The Moto G7 isn't due to be launched until 2019, but we now know to expect a new display with a waterdrop notch and curved corners with the fingerprint reader embedded in the 'M' logo on the back (why it took Moto so long to start doing this, I have no idea).
