Xiaomi Samsung Galaxy Z Flip-like foldable tipped by suppliers

Xiaomi Samsung Galaxy Z Flip-like foldable tipped by suppliers

Two clamshell-style foldable display-toting smartphones were released in the past few months, one from Samsung, the other from Motorola. Both received relatively standard market releases, though both were released in slightly smaller numbers than your average headliner. Now it would appear that Xiaomi wants in on the party, with a rumor springing up about a device with a look that could very easily be mistaken for Samsung's approach.

Essential Phone PH-2 could change our lives, if we’re ready

Essential Phone PH-2 could change our lives, if we’re ready

Essential Phone PH-2 appeared in carrier files this week - but we might not be ready for it just yet. If what Andy Rubin predicted is meant to come to fruition, we might have to look to another device to see how well we're prepared for the sort of future for which Essential is prepared. That other device was the Palm Phone (2018) and it did not do very well.

If this is iPhone XI 2019, sign me up right now

If this is iPhone XI 2019, sign me up right now

A new iPhone XI concept rendering appeared this week in a video that I'd like to direct your attention to now. The device is not based on any CAD drawings, it's not part of any grand leak scheme, and it's most certainly not made by Apple. Instead, it's made with the iPad Pro 2018 in mind, making moves that reflect the relatively major design language change made with the iPad in this year's collection.

Razer Project Linda hands-on: Android phone-powered notebook

This week we're taking a look at the Razer Phone taken to a new universe. This is the Razer Project Linda, a laptop (or notebook, whatever you prefer,) made to house the Razer Phone. This device does nothing without the phone, but with it, it becomes a fully functional Android-based notebook computer. For the moment, this remains a concept design - but there is a chance it could be made into a real-deal consumer product in the near future.

Samsung Galaxy X: 3 ways this folding display phone could flex

Samsung Galaxy X: 3 ways this folding display phone could flex

The Samsung Galaxy X had our attention when we first saw Samsung fold a display, right before our eyes. It was amazing to see how the company - at least the Samsung Display portion of the company - was able to take something that seemed so fragile, and treat it like something far more robust. That was well before we heard rumors of the name Samsung Galaxy X - now we're well into hardware patents season. Today we're going to look at several ways in which Samsung tested the possibilities in flexible displays for a mobile device.

“New” Samsung Galaxy phone has wrap-around display

“New” Samsung Galaxy phone has wrap-around display

A new sort of Samsung Galaxy smartphone was revealed in schematics drawings this week with a wrap-around display. Much like what we saw with the original Galaxy Note Edge, this device moves information and controls not only off the front of the device, but down the side as well. This device's display covers the entirety of its front as well as just about half of its back.

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

Rumors of a new iPad have begun, and if the images we've got here are any indication, Apple's next slate will be a masterpiece. We've seen our fair share of iPhone concepts in the past from a wide variety of creators - but not so much on the iPad - save the months leading up to the iPad Pro. This is probably largely because of the device's relative lack of need for change over the past half-decade.
