HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

With the HTC 10 reportedly not doing so well in the market, it seems that HTC will be trying to attack the problem from a different angle.

That might seem to be the strategy it will indeed be employing if the HTC smartphone spotted at GFXBench is indeed the HTC Desire 10 Pro, which would blur the lines between HTC’s two smartphone lines. And probably confuse buyers as well.

LG V20 gets a “real” but grainy photo leak

3D renders, fabricated PR images, and mockups of upcoming smartphones are easy come by these days, so there is much to be said when alleged real-life photos of said devices pop up. Although we’re just a good two weeks away from LG’s scheduled unveiling, there’s still enough time for that kind of leak for the LG V20.

Keen observers have spotted links to a certain Xperia X Compact as well as an Xperia XZ, hinting that Sony is far from done with new Xperia X models this year.

Android Nougat rollout allegedly hampered by Snapdragon 800

If you’ve been wondering, maybe even irate, that some rather capable Android smartphones, like the Nexus 5 or the HTC One M8, aren’t officially getting the latest Android 7.0 release, then LlabTooFeR might have the answer you’re looking for. But it won’t be the answer that you want. According to the leakster, many older smartphones dating 2014 and earlier are being left out of the Nougat party simply because Qualcomm won’t be releasing updates to the graphics driver of the Snapdragon 800 or 801 powering those devices.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 tries to distance itself from clones

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 tries to distance itself from clones

Smartphones are really starting to look alike these days. On the one hand, that might give weight to accusations of stealing/copying designs and the lack of innovation. On the other hand, it also shows the market’s tendency to gravitate towards and expect certain designs over others. Next to Samsung, Xiaomi has been one of most often criticized for imitating someone’s (really, just Apple’s) designs.
