Pixel 6 Pro Tensor CPU leak paints a confusing picture

Pixel 6 Pro Tensor CPU leak paints a confusing picture

Major smartphone makers seem to have shifted their strategies a bit to market self-designed silicon, either for imaging or for running the entire device. Perhaps inspired by the attention that Apple has gotten with its new M1 Silicon, more and more manufacturers are getting into that same arena, from Vivo's V1 imaging chip to the AMD-powered Samsung Exynos 2200 to, of course, Google Tensor. The latter has so far avoided being leaked to death, but this latest information might finally settle one debate while leaving pundits and experts scratching their heads.

Apple’s new iPad mini is so much more than just a smaller tablet

Apple’s new iPad mini is so much more than just a smaller tablet

I'd hoped Apple would grant the iPad mini a reprieve - instead, it gave it a reinvention. The smallest of the iPadOS devices proved to be the biggest star of Apple's iPhone 13 event this week, with new style, functionality, and speed partially eclipsing what could well be considered incremental updates to the best-selling smartphones.

Google Pixel 6 inspires official bags of chips

Google Pixel 6 inspires official bags of chips

Google is pumping up the message in Japan with official bags of chips in a variety of colors. The chips in each bag are (quite likely) the same flavor, regardless of the color you get, just like the Google Pixel 6. Regardless of the casing you get, the Google Pixel 6 will be the same experience. The differences will be between the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro - but the chips come first.

Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro wants to make “Cinemagic” filmmaking a thing

Smartphone cameras these days have all become sophisticated and powerful, enabling image and video capture with great detail and quality. Most smartphone makers are content to simply boast about those cameras though a few do try to put some context behind these sensors. More than just being able to take great photos or record smooth videos, Xiaomi is creating a new "Cinemagic" buzzword around the idea of dropping heavy and expensive movie-making equipment for a Xiaomi 11T or, better yet, a Xiaomi 11T Pro.

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

The Xiaomi 11T is a high-powered smartphone that is effectively a tiny movie screen. Xiaomi positions this device as a "Cinemagic" device, aiming to be a boss in the smartphone camera department. The cameras at the back of this device are very similar to those equipped with the Xiaomi 11T Pro - the big differences appear to come (at least in part) due to the processor inside either smartphone.

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Almost all smartphones these days compete in terms of features and power, with better specs often advertised to be the better choice. Fairphone, however, has always stood by itself on a different battleground, championing sustainability even if it meant getting behind the times. With the Fairphone 4, however, the company is at least trying to catch up with the latest 5G trend, but, based on this latest leak, that might be all that will be modern about the world's first "modular" 5G smartphone.

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

A lot of eyes were on Apple today, but not everyone is an iPhone fan. Some have naturally taken the opportunity to point out the latest iPhone 13's flaws, while others lost no time in trying to pull people's attention towards their own upcoming products. Google is actually one of those whose very brief Nexus Twitter stunt tried to focus the spotlight on the Pixel 6. As if by perfect coincidence, a fresh set of leaks about the Pixel 6 Pro just landed, confirming what we had heard so far but also bringing one disappointing news as well.

Galaxy S21 FE launch might be near, Exynos 2100 model confirmed

The Galaxy S21 FE might be one of Samsung's most troubled phones this year, and that's before it even has the chance to launch. Designed to supplement the reportedly disappointing sales of the Galaxy S21 flagship, the Fan Edition has repeatedly been rumored to face production issues attributed to the global chip shortage. Those troubles might finally be in the past, and it seems that Samsung is close to launching this affordable Galaxy S smartphone, sadly with some disappointing points.

Google Messages nudge takes a page out of Gmail’s book

Google Messages nudge takes a page out of Gmail’s book

The amount of information that we're bombarded with every day is almost a sure-fire way for important things to slip through the cracks. While many will rely on their brainpower to remember things, it has been proven that the majority of people tend to forget too easily. Unsurprisingly, there is no shortage of technological solutions that try to give as a nudge about forgotten but important tasks, and Google is bringing one such solution to its Messages Android app after baking for years in Gmail.

Galaxy S21 One UI 4 Android 12 Beta is now open

Galaxy S21 One UI 4 Android 12 Beta is now open

Samsung today is definitely not the Samsung from just four or five years ago, at least when it comes to software updates. After being the most notorious, the company has now become the champion of Android updates, rivaling even Google itself. Unlike in the past, it is also now one of the earliest to let the public test upcoming Android upgrades and is sometimes even one of the first to make it available. That track record was almost broken with the news of the One UI 4 Beta's delay or even cancellation, but, as luck would have it, that's not the case for Galaxy S21 owners.
