Samsung Wireless DeX for PC coming to more phones

Samsung Wireless DeX for PC coming to more phones

Given its track record, there have been some worries that Samsung will abandon its special DeX feature sooner or later. That may still happen but, at least for now, it seems that Samsung will be sticking to its guns, especially since it has become one of the exclusive perks when pairing Galaxy phones with Windows PCs. DeX's longevity, however, depends on the number of users it has which, in turn, depends on the number of devices it supports. Fortunately, Samsung might be addressing the latter by bringing DeX's most recent feature to more of its phones, provided they're running the latest version of its One UI experience.

Foldable Google Pixel rumored with a Samsung tap tip

Google's fabled foldable might well be close at hand! Today's tip (or rumor) suggests Google tapped Samsung for a new foldable panel, quite possibly for a future foldable Pixel smartphone.

OPPO over-the-air wireless charging to be revealed this week

OPPO over-the-air wireless charging to be revealed this week

As convenient as wireless charging may be at times, their convenience ends the moment you lift the phone off its pad even by just a bit to use it. There have been multiple attempts in the past to solve that problem but now it seems that smartphone makers are making bold steps in that direction. Following Xiaomi and Motorola, OPPO is preparing to show off its own take on over-the-air or OTA wireless charging and it is interestingly using its rollable phone to do so.

LG Rollable phone fate not yet decided, company says

LG seems to be the unfortunate victim of rumors that claim its impending demise, including some reportedly from company execs. The company, of course, denied those rumors and, to be fair, their official word carries more weight than hearsay. The latest subject of those rumors is the LG Rollable phone that the company teased just last month. It turns out, LG hasn't actually made any final decision about it yet, meaning its fate still remains in limbo for now.

Pixel 5a leaked renders and specs don’t inspire much hope

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say, but few might find it hard to call the latest Pixel phones beautiful. True, they have their own character, in some respects, but some might be wishing this year's round would offer something different. Unfortunately, changes might not come until a Pixel 6 later this year, and, at least based on these leaks about the Pixel 5a, we might experience a bit of a deja vu that could confuse some consumers in the long run.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 DxOMark audio review leaks some details

Huawei just revealed its next foldable phone and first impressions have been lukewarm if not downright disappointing. Fortunately, that's not the only big phone that might be around the corner. No, there won't be a new foldable much less a foldable coming really soon but ASUS will be trying to make a big splash in about two weeks with a more regular powerhouse. The ASUS ROG Phone 5's arrival is pretty much confirmed thanks to DxOMark's very early review of its audio capabilities, along with some interesting tidbits to boot.

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

South Korean sources suggest this week that LG's sent word of a halting of efforts for their future rollable phone. This conceptual effort was meant to be a real deal, at some point - a phone with a display that'd effective unfurl like a scroll. But now, amid the restructuring of the LG smartphone business in general, it would appear that any sort of "rollable" smartphone efforts will need to be done by a different company, one more prepared to drop cash on such a risky endeavor.
