MacBook Pro 16: Our wishlist (and what’s most likely)

MacBook Pro 16: Our wishlist (and what’s most likely)

Apple was tipped to reveal a 16-inch MacBook Pro in the year 2019, and this afternoon we're going to take a look at what that'll mean. This would be the biggest MacBook Pro (or indeed MacBook of any sort) since the 2012 MacBook Pro on which I'm typing right this minute. No MacBook Pro's been up to the task of delivering such a monstrously adequate display - until now, it would seem. Almost, anyway.

All Galaxy S10 cases, covers leaked: Remember that screen issue?

All Galaxy S10 cases, covers leaked: Remember that screen issue?

A set of official Samsung Galaxy S10 accessories were leaked this morning with a few details not known before today. This set of images shows that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will indeed come in three sizes, will come in two different sorts (flat and curved-edge display) and will have a front-facing fingerprint sensor that is unaffected by a standard screen protector. But what's that, you say, it wasn't the standard screen protector you were worried about?

Pick your Galaxy S10 now: All the details, leaked and listed

This morning the final details on the Samsung Galaxy S10 were leaked two days before reveal. The big day is almost here! It's February 20th when we'll first see the Samsung Galaxy S10 on display, and less than 24 hours later when you'll likely have your first pre-order email in your inbox. Not long after that, this smartphone (and its closest relatives) will be at your local Verizon store - not to mention AT&T, T-Mobile USA, and Sprint.

Good news: Smartphones last too long

Good news: Smartphones last too long

Today we've looked at a couple of studies on tech product sales, and there's some good news for mobile users. The good news is for people that already own smartphones: these products last a long time, provided they're taken care of properly. The bad news is for manufacturers: they've got to change something in their methods if they want to continue to increase sales in smartphones.

Vivo iQOO phone foldable display leaked: The future is folding

Vivo iQOO phone foldable display leaked: The future is folding

The near future is a race to the first real-deal functional and worthwhile foldable display smartphone, and iQOO seems to be right up front of the pack. We don't yet have evidence of a final, real smartphone just yet - but the renders look top-notch. If what we're seeing here translates into a real product in the near future, big-name brands bringing foldable devices to the market better watch their back - this might be a real contender.

Another Xiaomi Mi 9 event just appeared to battle Galaxy S10

There's a bit more information - and some very clear, extremely vibrant photos of the Xiaomi Mi 9 out there this morning, courtesy of the company itself. They've made clear they intend to show the Xiaomi Mi 9 in the immediate future, not only at an event on February 20th, but again on February 24th, too. What better way to put the crunch on Samsung than to hold two events where one event just won't do the trick?

Xiaomi Mi 9 may out-hype Galaxy S10 with same-day event

Xiaomi is aiming directly for Samsung's bread and butter this month as their next smartphone's reveal event date shows. This event will take place on February 20th in China - making it impossible to not see the reveal of their next phone as a direct challenge to Samsung's same-day event. The Samsung Galaxy S10 will have to face off against the Xiaomi Mi 9, a smartphone the company calls its "most powerful and beautiful phone" they've ever made.

Galaxy S10 Plus’s dirty little ID secret appears in hands-on video

In a hands-on video leaked by a case-making brand, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus seems to have inadvertently revealed a secret. A secret beyond the obvious set of specifications, specifications which have leaked in GREAT detail over the last several weeks. We've got all that good stuff here too - but first, that little oddity sitting right up front. What's the deal with this big hole in the screen protector?

The phone radiation top 15 list: Who’s emitting most?

The phone radiation top 15 list: Who’s emitting most?

So you'd like to know which smartphones emit the most radiation? Today we've got a chart for that - and a little explanation for what it all means. First you should know that there's no single study that shows worrying levels of negative effects on the human brain via cell phone use. That does NOT mean that you should go ahead and chat the night away every night - because we don't yet know the full effects, and studies are currently in progress.

10 unique features Galaxy S10 will roll with on release day

10 unique features Galaxy S10 will roll with on release day

There's a new set of phones coming from Samsung this month - three different models, all called Galaxy S10. Rumors seem pretty much a lock at this point that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be joined by a smaller model called Galaxy S10E and a larger version called Galaxy S10 Plus. The three models will be revealed at the same event (with a few other devices at the same time) and we've got a handy-dandy list of features here that've been tipped to set the Galaxy S10 family aside from the rest of the smartphone universe and/or other recent Galaxy S smartphones from the last several years.

Making basic sense of Apple’s next iPhone in 2019

Making  basic sense of Apple’s next iPhone in 2019

The 2019 iPhone isn't going to change the way you use your smartphone - unless that's what you're aiming for in the first place. The iPhone XI, or iPhone 11 if you prefer, looks so far like it'll bring about a new wave of apps that make the phone itself look magical. Based on leaks we've seen thus far, Apple's next-generation software is highly dependent on a rear-facing camera array very similar to that of several Android smartphones also set to see release before the end of this year.

Galaxy S10 likely set to lean on these selfie features

Galaxy S10 likely set to lean on these selfie features

The Samsung Galaxy S10, S10E, and S10 Plus all have the same front-facing camera feature. The same key feature, that is to say, according to the latest batch of leaks. The Samsung Galaxy S10's biggest feature might not be on its backside after all. Instead, it might be peeking through a hole in the smartphone's "Infinity O Display" - in its front-facing camera.
