Moto Z4 render looks very familiar, causes some confusion

Motorola's big 2019 splash so far has been limited to its mid-range Moto G family.

That said, its appearance and its naming are already causing some confusion, raising questions about Motorola's strategy for this year.

ROKiT phone launch prompts some serious side-eyes

ROKiT phone launch prompts some serious side-eyes

Today a set of ROKiT smartphones were launched at the company's online store and at Walmart online. Two phones are feature phones, one is just about as standard a smartphone as you can get, and two work with glasses-free 3D. The first question you should be asking is: Why would I buy a phone, especially a "3D" phone, without first getting to test it out, in-hand?

This may be the Galaxy Note 10 in specs

Today we're going over a set of leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specifications that might've just spilled the beans. We're still reeling from the release of the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, not to mention the Galaxy S10E - but it's time to start talking about the Galaxy Note 10 immediately. If Samsung one-ups its competitors, like Apple's iPhone XS Max and the Huawei P30 Pro, it'll be high time the display size changed in the Galaxy Note 10, and its innards to boot.

Huawei P30 Pro sneaky videos leak, release dates in tow

If the Huawei P30 Pro was meant to be a surprise, someone messed up. Huawei's next massive thriller of a smartphone's been leaked today in the form of a couple videos and photos, too. The Huawei P30 Pro looks to confirm rumored specifications like a 6.47-inch display, or for the non-Pro model a 6.1-inch display. Both devices have Android 9 Pie, almost certainly, and HuSilicon Kirin 980 7nm processors with Octa-core (2x2.6 GHz Cortex-A76 & 2x1.92 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU and Mali-G76 MP10 GPU.

Android to ask European users their preferred browser, search app

Android to ask European users their preferred browser, search app

While it remains mostly unchallenged in the US, Google has been facing tough opposition in Europe. It has fought and lost not a few legal battles with the European Commission, forcing it to change many of its practices and business strategies just for that region. Those changes aren't done yet and the latest might be more of a nuisance rather than an inconvenience. Without going into much detail, Google says that Android users in Europe will be asked which browse and search app they'd like to use, even if the majority of them will probably answer "Google" anyway.

Galaxy A40 details fully revealed by Dutch retailer pre-order

If this pre-order page is legit, then the Galaxy A40 might be really close to launching even before the Galaxy A90 debuts next month. That might be for the best as the Galaxy A90, if it indeed has a rotating popup camera, is bound to steal the spotlight. Judging by all the details now available, that might not be hard to do as the Galaxy A40 could be the most forgettable member of Samsung's Galaxy A series.

I can’t stop taking cat photos with the Nokia 9 PureView

If you're looking for a large number of cat photos, in excruciating detail down to individual whiskers, all taken with the Nokia 9 PureView, then you've come to the right place. HMD's reboot of the "PureView" brand was met with a mixture of hope and anxiety back at Mobile World Congress 2019 last month, fond memories of devices like the Nokia 808 PureView nudging up against concerns that the superlative photography capabilities it once referred to might be diluted today.

Inbox by Gmail going away: Plus Google’s other app closing concurrently

Inbox is going away. The folks at Google responsible for Inbox by Gmail are likely just as bummed about their work's fate as those that made Google Plus. That's the social network Google made, and the Gmail suite of services - a new interface for the email service - that's proved itself less-than-necessary. Google started notifying users via Gmail and Inbox (inside of which there is Gmail) that Inbox is going away on April 2nd.
