Motorola P30, an iPhone X copycat, actually looks pretty great

Motorola P30, an iPhone X copycat, actually looks pretty great

When the Motorola P30 was leaked earlier this week, all I could see was the latest Android-laden iPhone X. Even though the Essential Phone PH-1 was the first major smartphone with a notch, Apple put one on their iPhone and sold an outrageous amount of units.

When you're in a place where making a good, cheaper copy isn't looked down upon, it's rewarded, it makes good business sense to make said copy.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro 3D camera tipped to battle iPhone X

The Huawei Mate 20 suffered a bit of a leak this week in the form of a couple of front panels. If the leak's contents be entirely legitimate, it would suggest that the company were delivering the smartphone with a 3D camera setup. This would not be a giant shock, as the only 3D camera setup on the market thus far is the Xiaomi Mi 8, a device that's just about as blatant a copycat as the latest Motorola phone leak - but, back to the subject.

Motorola P30 copied Xiaomi who in turn copied Apple

Motorola P30 copied Xiaomi who in turn copied Apple

There's really no way around it - Motorola's joined the copycat club. This is apparently the Motorola P30, a device with a near-full-frontside display with a notch, a fingerprint sensor in the top middle of its back, and a pill-shaped set of cameras with its LED flash in the center. It's basically the Xiaomi Mi 8, a device which is basically an Android version of the iPhone X.

Galaxy S10: These details beat iPhone X, or all is lost

The Samsung Galaxy S10 series appeared in a video created by CC, in three parts, showing the possibilities from front to back.

If the Samsung Galaxy S10 series phones - three phones - look like this, Samsung won't have need for any other phones the rest of the year.

Google Pixel 3 XL just leaked in an unboxing video

This morning it would appear that one Russian citizen received a Google Pixel 3 XL in the mail. Why they received this Google Pixel 3 XL in the mail, we cannot be entirely sure. But by the looks of it, he does most certainly seem to have a Google Pixel 3 XL in the box, has taken this device out of the box, and is currently in possession of both the phone and the box - and its other contents, too.

BlackBerry Evolve and X revealed, but not for you

BlackBerry Evolve and X revealed, but not for you

Two new BlackBerry smartphones were revealed this week in a manner that suggested they weren't meant for the USA. BlackBerry hasn't done a lot of business in the USA recently, and launching a pair of phones in India isn't outside their realm of possibility. In this case, it's more of a licensee situation, where Indian company Optiemus Infracom paid BlackBerry some cash to use their name while they launch a pair of phones branded and decked-out in BlackBerry app connections.
