A wild Sony Xperia X Performance successor appears

A wild Sony Xperia X Performance successor appears

If you thought the fresh batch Xperia X smartphones, which includes the Xperia XA and XA Ultra, was Sony's end game for 2016, you have another thing coming. Spotted at GFXBench is a certain Sony F8331, which, given that model number, is likely to be the successor to the Xperia X Performance. That said, we're using "successor" here really as a time marker only, as there doesn't seem to be much difference between the current Xperia X Performance (F813X) and this still to be confirmed and revealed model.

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is actually first with Snapdragon 821

ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe is actually first with Snapdragon 821

Qualcomm just announced the slightly upgraded Snapdragon 821 processor that will power premium mobile devices for the second half of the year. Of course, there has been conjecture that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will sport the chip when it comes out next month. ASUS, however, beats it to the punch. It revealed, just today, that its ZenFone 3 Deluxe will actually be powered by the latest chip instead of the Snapdragon 820. Other than that, however, it's exactly the same as the ZenFone 3 Deluxe it unveiled at Computex in May.

Huawei honor 8 unveiled, comes with dual cameras, glass body

Huawei honor 8 unveiled, comes with dual cameras, glass body

If you presumed that the honor is Huawei's "budget" sub-brand and all the connotation that entails, the announced honor 8 will probably change your line of thinking. Although it's not exactly going to match Huawei's premium flagship, the P9, spec for spec, it pretty much comes close. Like its older cousing, the honor 8 comes with a dual 12 megapixel rear camera, with the same depth-sensing monochrome sensor, but sports a glass body instead of an all metal one.

Galaxy Note 7 could get hybrid UFS/microSD card slot

Galaxy Note 7 could get hybrid UFS/microSD card slot

Just last week, Samsung revealed the world's first batch of removable memory cards sporting the new Universl Flash Storage (UFS) spec. Those cards, which had even had a 256 GB card among them, promised near SSD storage reading speeds and faster than microSD card writing speeds. The one fatal problem, though, was that UFS was incompatible with all current microSD card readers in the market. Not to worry, says Samsung, as it is developing a slot that can read both kinds of cards. Given the timing, it could even make its debut in the Galaxy Note 7.

It’s the right time for a Nintendo phone

It’s the right time for a Nintendo phone

Nintendo has traditionally been steadfast in its dedication to hardware, even as rival consoles have out-performed, out-exclusived, and eventually out-sold it in the process. It's taken the company years to concede that yes, smartphone gaming and leveraging the value of its game IP might be a good way of making money, and sure enough Nintendo's stock price has soared as Pokemon GO became a must-have on iOS and Android.

Download Pokemon GO here, avoid hackers and malware

Download Pokemon GO here, avoid hackers and malware

Downloading Pokemon GO from the wrong source can lead to the user unknowingly loading malware to their phone. It was bound to happen, especially with a game that's based on GPS location and is already live in some areas of the world, but not in others. Today we're going to run down the reasons why users should avoid certain sources for the app, and stick to others. "Cybercriminals are after any angle that helps them gain a foothold on your devices," said Tim Erlin, Senior Director of IT Security and Risk Strategy for Tripwire. "A popular app that's not available in some places is a near-perfect target for crafting a malware delivery strategy."

Galaxy Note 7 Verizon variant seen with 4GB RAM only

Galaxy Note 7 Verizon variant seen with 4GB RAM only

The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is truly near, seeing as how all these model variants are popping up left and right, especially on benchmarking websites. That said, we are nowhere near the final word on the specs for Samsung's next phablet. This time, we spot on Geekbench a certain SM-N930V, the usual indicator of a Verizon-bound model. What is curious about it, however, is how it is indicated to have only 4 GB of RAM, again defying earlier leaks and expectations of a 6 GB RAM flagship.

HP Elite X3 and friends are going to cost you a lot

HP's upcoming premium Windows 10 smartphone, the Elite X3, was shaping up to be almost the Surface Phone that Windows users have been dreaming of.

Reports from European media are coming in bearing not so glad tidings on the expected price tags for the smartphone as well as its accessories. The Elite X3 alone, for example, would cost 699 EUR, which, directly converted, would be around $770 stateside, making it a very expensive bet on the Windows 10 Mobile platform.

Galaxy J2 (2016), Smart Glow launched, Galaxy J Max in tow

It's finally official. Although Samsung hasn't yet officially detailed the full capabilities of its new Smart Glow feature, the Galaxy J2 2016 Edition that bears it will finally go out to the public, at least in India. Toting admittedly rather low-end specs, the Galaxy J2 (2016) will most likely use that Smart Glow to be its major selling point. Samsung has also launched the Galaxy J Max, a smartphone that spans an enormous 7 inches, further blurring the lines between smartphone and tablet.
