ZTE nubia X to bring its dual back-to-back screens this month

ZTE nubia X to bring its dual back-to-back screens this month

While much of the smartphone market is fussing over three or four cameras, notches, and elevating tops, ZTE’s sub-brand nubia is doing something equally eccentric of its own. We have heard of a so-called nubia Z18S a few months back, bearing quite an unusual solution to all these smartphone design problems. It seems nubia wasn’t at all kidding and it will be bringing this smartphone to market before October ends but with a slightly different name: the nubia X.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 is the chip that would have been the 855

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 is the chip that would have been the 855

The 810 came after the 800 and the 820 came after the 810. You’d expect that the series would go 830 then 840. Qualcomm, however, jump from 820 to 835 to 845. The next one after that will be 8150. Confused yet? You won’t be alone but that might be the marketing that Qualcomm will be employing when it unveils its next premium mobile platform, the Snapdragon 8150, not the Snapdragon 855.

Pokemon GO prepares for Sinnoh with important changes

Pokemon GO prepares for Sinnoh with important changes

Pokemon GO is still going strong but, like any game, it has its periods of ups and downs. The game might soon be experiencing another spurt of popularity now that developer Niantic Labs has confirmed what many players have been expecting since April. The game will soon be “moving” towards the Sinnoh region, though at a yet unannounced date. But more than just new Pokemon, the preparation for that next stage of the game will also be bringing in some subtle but big changes as well.

Galaxy S10 three models confirmed by Chinese certification

Galaxy S10 three models confirmed by Chinese certification

This month will probably see more new smartphones come to market than last month’s IFA, but for Samsung fans, the show is mostly over and they’re setting their sights on next year’s flagship. Unless Samsung does an Apple, that is expected to be simply called the Galaxy S10. Not only that, it might have three models even. That leak has now more or less been confirmed by a sighting in China’s MIIT agency naming the three flagship phones that will be coming our way early next year.

Brydge G-Type for Pixel Slate turns the tablet into a laptop

Brydge G-Type for Pixel Slate turns the tablet into a laptop

Google has just fully revealed the Pixel Slate, its return to tablets and its formal answer to the continuing onslaught of iPad Pros and Surfaces. While it does represent a new stage in Chrome OS history, it might also have disappointed some Pixelbook fans who would have preferred a more traditional laptop experience. For those that do, popular Bluetooth keyboard maker Brydge may have a solution for you. If you’re willing to make a few concessions.

Google Home app updated in time for stronger smart home push

Google Home app updated in time for stronger smart home push

Google’s launch of the Home Hub smart display isn’t just a one-off product launch. It’s actually a cog in a machine that’s now starting to swing into full gear. That machine is Google’s Connected Home, a.k.a. smart home, thrust and it is the unspoken underlying theme of Google’s event earlier today. Because what better than a new Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phone to run the updated Google Home app that will put you in touch with over 10,000 connected devices in your home.

ASUS ROG Phone getting its game on in the US this month

As hoped and as expected, ASUS’ Republic of Gamers is bringing what is perhaps the most ambitious gaming smartphone to the US market. And it won’t be alone, of course, because the ASUS ROG Phone will also be coming with its entire range of accessories that make it more than just a gaming smartphone. And while interested mobile gamers don’t have to wait that long to get one, it also means they’ll have less time to save for what is, as expected, an expensive kit.

Huawei Watch GT will disappoint Wear OS hopefuls

Huawei Watch GT will disappoint Wear OS hopefuls

It now seems that LG is the last OEM standing when it comes to sticking to Google’s wearable platform. The electronics giant just recently announced the LG Watch W7 which, despite its use of mechanical hands, still managed to run the Android-based Wear OS. Huawei’s upcoming Watch GT is all digital but, if the latest leak is to be believed, then it will not be you typical smartwatch and, worse, won’t run Wear OS by Google as initially expected and hoped.

Microsoft Surface Headphones shipping next month

Microsoft Surface Headphones shipping next month

Microsoft’s surprise device at its latest Surface event wasn’t a new PC, tablet or otherwise. Most of those have leaked already beforehand. What most didn’t expect is that Microsoft would come out with Surface-branded headphones. But that’s exactly what it brought to the stage, pitting the Surface Headphones against heavyweights like Sony and Bose. Fortunately, you won’t have to wait for the holidays to hear if these deceptively simple headphones are all they cracked up to be, with Microsoft putting the shipping date a few weeks earlier than the shopping season.

Honor Magic 2 will dazzle the crowd later this month

Honor Magic 2 will dazzle the crowd later this month

Without any successors, it seems that OPPO and Vivo have given up their pioneering elevating camera designs. Huawei sub-brand Honor, however, hasn’t. In fact, it has yet to fully reveal its own take on the “hiding the front camera” design. It has, however, already confirmed that the Honor Magic 2 is a “screen slider” phone. But by the end of the month, it will finally be revealing all the magic tricks in its bag.

2018 iPad Pro still coming with these features in tow

2018 iPad Pro still coming with these features in tow

Apple’s iPhone XS event last month was almost everything that we’ve expected except for one thing. Well, two if you count the still MIA AirPower wireless charging pad. The anticipated new iPad Pros were nowhere to be seen, disappointing some fans of the larger iOS device. Fret not, however, since Apple will reportedly have an event this month dedicated especially for its professional slates and it could very well be the biggest change the iPad Pro line has seen since the very first iPad Pro.

Huawei Mate 20X suddenly teased, large gaming phone inbound

Huawei Mate 20X suddenly teased, large gaming phone inbound

With just a few days before Huawei makes its last big splash for year, we thought we’ve heard everything we had to hear about the Mate 20. We expect that there’ll be a Huawei Mate 20, a Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and most likely a Porsche Design variant. Then almost out of the blue, Huawei itself drops a teaser that explicitly names a certain Huawei Mate 20X. It turns out, even Huawei doesn’t want to miss out on the new gaming smartphone trend.
