Galaxy A8s display panel leak hints at what’s coming

Galaxy A8s display panel leak hints at what’s coming

Many have pointed out, either in criticism and in praise, that Samsung has stubbornly refused to jump on the notch bandwagon. For better or worse, it could be making that jump now. Not only that, it might be making leaps with not one but three possible notch designs. Its first one might be landing on the Galaxy A8s, if this new leak is to be believed. But while that phone might be confined to China, its design and technology might spread farther.

Galaxy S10 leaks: colors, flat display, fingerprint scanner

Galaxy S10 leaks: colors, flat display, fingerprint scanner

Samsung’s foldable phone might be the most talked-about phone next year but more practical buyers will probably look to the Galaxy S10 more. While the company’s early 2019 flagships won’t have that rather eccentric folding gimmick, it’s not going to be without special, never before seen features, at least as far as Samsung Galaxy phones go. Because as novel as they may be for the Korean giant, the Galaxy S10 might look like it’s playing catchup with the rest of the market this time.

Galaxy Note 10 first leaks look massive

Galaxy Note 10 first leaks look massive

Before the Samsung Galaxy S10 is revealed to the world in early 2019, we've got to start in on rumors for the Galaxy Note 10. What better way to prepare for the next big hero phone than to pour over leaks of the phone that'll come after that? The next Note, as it were, was tipped this week to come with a significantly larger display than in previous releases - but with a body that's not enlarged an equivalent amount. How can this be?

Office 365 issues affect MFA users [UPDATE: Maybe fixed]

Office 365 issues affect MFA users [UPDATE: Maybe fixed]

This morning the folks at Microsoft responsible for Office 365 had a bit of a problem on their hands. It would appear that an error occurred at the point at which users sent themselves password resets. Because of this, any user who'd forgotten their password and reset said password were from that point unable to access their account at all, whatsoever.

OnePlus may have a Mega Device in the making

OnePlus may have a Mega Device in the making

Today we've put together a few clues that appear to indicate OnePlus MIGHT be making something sort of extraordinary. You're going to have to take the following with a grain of salt, as we're pretty far out from any hard and fast clues, but read though what we've got so far and see if it shakes anything loose. These clues come as sort of an addendum to an article released earlier today on an OPPO patent for a foldable smartphone.

OPPO’s folding phone might indicate OnePlus future

OPPO’s folding phone might indicate OnePlus future

This week in patents we're taking a peek at a new set of images from OPPO. This company is very closely related to OnePlus, and generally when one company makes a phone with a new feature, there's a pretty OK chance the other will follow suit. In this case, there's a bit more of a gap between one execution and the other - but it's worth a glance!

LG XBOOM WK9 smart display may finally be ready to launch

LG XBOOM WK9 smart display may finally be ready to launch

Throughout the year, we've seen a handful of manufacturers announcing smart displays that use Google Assistant. LG may finally be ready to join that select group of hardware makers, as it seems to be gearing up to launch the XBOOM AI ThinQ model WK9 smart display. As you might be able to tell from the name and the fact that this smart display is flanked by two rather large speakers, sound quality is one of the primary focuses in the WK9.

Honor Magic 2 teardown reveals its magic tricks

Honor Magic 2 teardown reveals its magic tricks

Vivo and OPPO have started the elevating camera trend but it seems that they have also ended it with the NEX S and Find X, respectively. Huawei sub-brand Honor and Xiaomi, on the other hand, have opted for a less eccentric solution to that same problem. With the Magic 2, Honor is jumping into the fray with the return of the slider phone. And despite not having a motor to power its gimmick, the smartphone’s insides are just as interesting to see.

Galaxy Note 9 in White is coming to welcome winter

Galaxy Note 9 in White is coming to welcome winter

This year’s Samsung flagships have really taken colors to heart. The Galaxy S9, S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 have gone beyond the usual drab hues and embraced purples and blues and browns. That said, some do actually prefer their phones to be less conspicuous in terms of appearance but also find black or gray to be too dull. If the rumors are true, then they might have a white holiday treat coming for them with a white Galaxy Note 9 landing this week, at least in Taiwan.

B&N Nook Tablet 10.1 gets official charging dock, keyboard cover

B&N Nook Tablet 10.1 gets official charging dock, keyboard cover

Just when you thought good ol’ Barnes & Noble has nobly bowed out of the e-book market, it makes a surprise comeback with a tablet of its own. Powered by nothing less than Android the new Nook Tablet 10.1 almost feels like an odd dream and a work of fiction. But to assure interested buyers that it’s really serious about the product, the bookseller is making available two accessories that turn what seems like just a glorified e-book reader into an entertainment station and even a mobile office as well.

HTC U13 might never happen, “something else” coming later

HTC U13 might never happen, “something else” coming later

With all that’s happening in the smartphone market these days, it’s almost too easy to forget that HTC still makes smartphones. Even Sony hits headlines more than the Taiwanese company, at least in mobile news (HTC’s name always comes up in VR, though). Aside from the very niche HTC Exodus blockchain phone, the last notable smartphone the company put out was the HTC U12+ back in May. And if rumors are true, that might actually be the last premium HTC U phone we’ll see.
