OnePlus Nord launch might not just be online but also in AR

OnePlus Nord launch might not just be online but also in AR

As a smaller company in a sea of big fish, OnePlus is used to doing more with less. Its launch events aren't exactly grand and can even be considered more "grassroots" than large corporate press parties. It does, however, always been more ambitious and daring with those exactly because it can afford to be more flexible and unorthodox. It isn't, for example, unfamiliar with holding events online but since everyone's doing online launches this year, it will reportedly put a hi-tech twist to the OnePlus Nord's debut.

Pixel 5 development tipped to still be in flux despite leaks

Pixel 5 development tipped to still be in flux despite leaks

The Pixel 4a is terribly delayed and, if things happen in order, the Pixel 5 might come even much later than usual. Either that or both phones will launch side by side, which is an equally strange situation. There have been very little in the way of leaks about the Pixel 5 aside from its probably mid-range specs. Renders of what is claimed to be the Pixel 5 and its dubious nature has sparked discussion on the rather uncertain situation that the phone's development is currently in right now.

Huawei Mate V could be company’s next foldable phone

Huawei Mate V could be company’s next foldable phone

Samsung's Galaxy Fold 2, now leaked to be called the Galaxy Z Fold 2, isn't the only foldable phone that's getting a slight name change. Either that or Huawei might be introducing a completely new foldable phone distinct from its Mate X. That phone could be named the Huawei Mate V, at least based on a trademark filing, and its name could hold the clue to whether it will be an outie just like the Mate X or an innie just its Samsung rival.

Galaxy Note 9 display color issue persists [UPDATE: Samsung response]

There's an update that was released this year for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that turned the device's display... sort green.

Samsung suggested that they were hard at work on the issue for the Galaxy S20 Ultra - but the issue seems to persist.

The next Samsung Galaxy Z Flip foldable (foldable display) smartphone was leaked today from several angles. This device looks exceedingly similar to its predecessor, and for good reason.

Leaked Pixel 5 renders leave us with questions

The Pixel 5 has been the subject of leaks for months now, and today, we're seeing a new set of leaked renders of the device. The renders show off the Pixel 5 from pretty much every angle, perhaps most importantly showing off the square camera array that's expected to be on the back. However, as these renders have gained attention, there are some who are expressing doubt in their legitimacy.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 name leaked with next-gen specs

The next major Samsung smartphone had a bit of a name leak today to match with a list of specifications leaked over the past few weeks. This device will be the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It'll fold like a book, where the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip flipped open like a traditional flip phone. Now there'll be two devices with "Z" in the title each year, one "Fold", the other a "Flip".

Galaxy Fold 2 will get a bigger charger for a smaller battery

Galaxy Fold 2 will get a bigger charger for a smaller battery

A lot of focus is being poured on the Galaxy Note 20 even though it won't be the only thing Samsung will reveal next month. That may be understandable considering it will be the more "normal" of the two. The Galaxy Fold 2 will, of course, be a head turner but its price tag will surely be a downer as well. That said, Samsung may have one more upgrade planned for its third foldable phone, one that is almost ironic considering it cut down its battery a bit.

Chrome on Android is about to get a little bit faster

Chrome on Android is about to get a little bit faster

Whether it's by user choice or strategic bundling, it's hard to deny that Chrome has the lion's share of the web browser market on Android. It is hardly the best in some aspects, like battery efficiency or even speed. It's not like Google developers aren't doing anything to change that situation but there are some fixes to this problem that seems almost too simple to have not been done in the first place. One of those is having a 64-bit version of Chrome, something that could have been done half a decade ago.

Galaxy Note 20 might be announced one month from now

Galaxy Note 20 might be announced one month from now

Despite all that's happening around the world, one thing that seems to still be a constant is the schedule of smartphone announcements, at least from giants like Samsung and Apple. Whether they will be able to launch on time and with enough stocks are different questions entirely. For Samsung, however, the Galaxy Note 20's announcement will be important in more ways than one as it will be the litmus test of Samsung's ability to hold a purely virtual event for what it hopes will be its heavy hitters for the next three months of the year.
