Google apparently readying an Apple-style clampdown over Android app fees

Google is reportedly planning to crack down on Android apps bypassing its in-app purchase rules, holding developers to an existing - but little-enforced - requirement. The decision follows a controversial legal spat between Apple and Fortnite-developer Epic Games, in which the publisher criticized the so-called "App Store tax" of 30-percent on purchases made within software.

iPhone 12 mini tipped again in new leak

Rumors that Apple's smallest 2020 smartphone will launch as the iPhone 12 mini continue to gain weight, with a new leak claiming to show official labeling confirming the new name.

Google Nest Audio unboxed early after retailer jumps the gun

Google Nest Audio unboxed early after retailer jumps the gun

Google's new Nest Audio isn't going to get a full unveil until next week, but that hasn't stopped at least one example of the unusually-shaped smart speaker from being inadvertently sold early - and given a full unboxing. The replacement to the Google Home looks set to be one part of a packed "Launch Night In" on September 30, alongside the Pixel 5 and more, but Google just can't seem to keep a secret.

Pixel 4a 5G leak exposes the Android we weren’t meant to see yet

Google's Pixel 4a 5G will offer faster connectivity in a familiar phone, and now we know just how familiar to expect it to be. Set to be officially unveiled at Google's "Launch Night In" on September 30 - alongside the Pixel 5, a new Chromecast, a smart speaker, and more - the Pixel 4a 5G could well end up being one of the most affordable ways to put 5G in your pocket.

PlayStation Phone 2 and an alternate Google Nexus

PlayStation Phone 2 and an alternate Google Nexus

This week a device appeared on an auction site with the title "Xperia Play2". This device is not a PSP, nor is it a handheld gaming device made by Sony with any other name. Instead, this would appear to be a real prototype of a device that'd be a direct follow-up to the original PlayStation phone: Sony Xperia Play.

Google Pixel 4a 5G leak makes you wonder: Why not XL?

Google Pixel 4a 5G leak makes you wonder: Why not XL?

Today the Google Pixel 4a 5G was revealed in an unofficial capacity in a manner similar to Tuesday's leak of the Pixel 5. This device may seem like a traditional bump from one iteration of a phone to a (5G) version - but it's not as simple as all that. Instead, we're getting a similar name, basically the same software, and the same amount of data storage - and a few kicks in the pants.

New iPhone 5G launch “days away” says leaked internal video

New iPhone 5G launch “days away” says leaked internal video

A video was leaked this week featuring BT and EE CEO Marc Allera and Apple's own Eddy Cue. Per the video, "we are just days away from Apple's next major launch, a 5G iPhone, which will be a huge boost for 5G." This is the sort of video that'd be shared among carrier officials and affiliates, not meant for public consumption. In other words, there's little reason to believe we're more than a month away from a "launch" of the first 5G iPhone.

New iPhone 12 mini leaked in name and size

Today we're taking a peek at the full October 2020 iPhone lineup from Apple, thanks to a series of leaks from a variety of sources. The iPhone 12 mini will be one of four devices, as best as we can tell so far, and it'll feature a device size not seen from Apple for several generations. This so-called iPhone 12 mini is rumored to be a size roughly equivalent to that of the original iPhone 5 or iPhone SE!

Google Nest Audio and new Chromecast leak ahead of Pixel event

Google Nest Audio and new Chromecast leak ahead of Pixel event

Google may have teased its own new Nest smart speaker back in July, but a new leak gives us a much better view of just what the unusually-shaped model will look like - and the new Google Chromecast launching alongside it. There were more than a few scratched-heads when Google responded to the leaks around what speaker codenamed "Prince" with an official image of it, not least because of the weirdly pillowy shape.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G leaks via dev page

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G was leaked today via Verizon with a full set of specifications and imagery that leaves little to the imagination. Samsung's not yet "officially" revealed this device, though we've seen quite a bit about it and the details of its hardware and software abilities from a set of leaks over the past few weeks. This device has a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz image refresh rate, rain and dust resistance, and a design that should be rather familiar.

It's September 15, the Apple Store is offline for updates, and we're expecting a whole host of shiny new tech to arrive in there later today when the Cupertino firm finishes up its latest event. Unlike most September Apple events in previous years, however, the new iPhone isn't expected to be on the agenda. Instead, ready your wallet for something new for your wrist, among other things.
