Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks: Tiny bezels, moved fingerprint sensor, more

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been caught in the wild, ahead of the new flagship smartphone's release in just a few months time.

A dual-cam 5″ iPhone would be the perfect 2017 tweener

A third iPhone 8 that cherry-picks the best of the two current models could give Apple a new sweet-spot - and a 2017 sales hit. Reports that the Cupertino firm will have not two but three new iPhones in refresh next year broke this week, with a 5-inch screen tipped to slot in-between the 4.7- and 5.5-inch sizes that have been part of the range since the iPhone 6.

Tim Cook may have promised "great desktops" in the pipeline, but 2017 is shaping up to be a disappointing year for Mac fans if the latest leaks are correct. With iPhone providing a fat wedge of Apple's profit each quarter, not to mention iOS app revenues, the fear among desktop users for some time has been that attention within the Cupertino company has slipped away from the platform that once saved it. According to insider chatter, that concern may in fact be well founded.
