Sony F8331 “X Performance” photos show a huge design change

Sony F8331 “X Performance” photos show a huge design change

Last week, we were treated to the sighting of a rather odd Sony smartphone on GFXBench that was suspected to be Sony's upcoming flagship for the second half of 2016. The specs shown there, however, were barely interesting, as they were near identical to the existing Xperia X Performance. However, there might be more to this Sony F8331 after all, with a fresh batch of leaked photos showing an intriguing change in Sony's smartphone design, which may be a welcome change after years of seeing nearly the same looks on Sony's smartphones.

iPhone 7 Pro photos reveal big details on 2016 release

Three models, not just two, have appeared in photos of what's suggested to be Apple's 2016 iPhone 7 lineup. This would follow along with what's previously been rumored to be released next year, not this one - unless said rumors were squelched by Apple's changing strategies directly in said rumor-mongers faces. While previous tips said that Apple would wait for the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone being released - that'd be next year - now with three devices in a photo lineup, the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 7 Pro could be the biggest release Apple's ever had all at once.

Moto Z Play might still have a headphone jack

With Apple believed to be ditching the headphone jack for a Lightning port audio output, Android OEMs are scrambling to beat it to the punch. Except with USB-C ports, of course. A good number have already put out such smartphones, but probably one of the first major global OEM to do so is Motorola, or just Moto for short, with the Moto Z and Moto Z Force.
