Huawei P Smart Z to be its first popup camera phone

Huawei P Smart Z to be its first popup camera phone

While Huawei leads the way in smartphone cameras, it is slower to jump on trendier features. You'd have to look to Honor for things like sliders and punch-hole cutouts. That could be changing really soon with what has been named the Huawei P Smart Z. While a mid-range phone at heart, it will try to make its case by being the first Huawei-branded phone to come with that popup camera design.

iPhone XI 3D renders hint at all-new glass back design

iPhone XI 3D renders hint at all-new glass back design

"All-new design" seems to be the buzzword for upcoming Apple products. That was how Ming-chi Kuo described the delayed new Macbooks, upcoming iPads, and even new AirPods. The one with the biggest all-new design, however, is the iPhone XI, or iPhone 11 if you want. But in addition to its already controversial camera bump, new information has surfaced pointing to a slightly new design for the glass back as well.

Samsung asks iFixit to take down Galaxy Fold teardown

Samsung asks iFixit to take down Galaxy Fold teardown

It has barely been three years since the Galaxy Note 7 started catching fire and here is Samsung again trying to fend off one of the biggest fiascos in its history. Fortunately for the company, it isn't something it could be sued over yet (unless you consider existing pre-orders) and it's more of a PR and image problem for the smartphone giant. It isn't doing itself any favors, though, by asking iFixit to remove its teardown analysis of the problematic Galaxy Fold that clarifies what really caused the issues and, consequently, what future users should be careful about.

Verizon reveals Galaxy S10 5G pre-order details in full

Verizon reveals Galaxy S10 5G pre-order details in full

Verizon today confirmed another 20 cities that will get its 5G mobility service at some point this year, which is all well and good, but we still don't have very many 5G phones to actually leverage that service. Verizon does sell the Moto Z3 and its 5G Moto Mod in markets where it offers 5G service, but there are a lot of folks out there who likely only have eyes for one 5G phone: the Galaxy S10. In addition to padding out its list of 5G cities for 2019, Verizon also announced that the Galaxy S10 5G is now available to pre-order.

Google Duo group calling rolls out but only in select regions

Google Duo group calling rolls out but only in select regions

If the defunct Allo was supposed to be Google's answer to Apple's iMessage, the still existing Duo is its response to FaceTime. If that's the case, it's only fitting that it should have a Group FaceTime feature, too right? Particularly with the privacy bugs. That definitely seems to be the case with a group calling feature that has started to roll out. There are, however, to catches that could dampen some user's excitement.

Galaxy Note 10 5G feature confirmed by Verizon

Galaxy Note 10 5G feature confirmed by Verizon

As much as carriers and even manufacturers themselves have been singing praises of the revolution that 5G will bring, there have been relatively few phones this half of the year that come with 5G already built-in. That will definitely change as the months go by, especially in the latter half o the year. According to Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg himself, the Galaxy Note 10 will have such a feature, which shouldn't really be a surprise or an eye-opening revelation.

LG mobile business in question as production in Korea suspended

LG mobile business in question as production in Korea suspended

Android smartphone news these days mostly revolve around Samsung, thanks to the Galaxy Fold brouhaha, and Huawei, thanks to the P30 Pro's highly praised cameras. Former giants like Sony and HTC also get some attention from time to time but often not in a good light. The latest to join that group is LG who has just suspended the production of mobile phones in its plant in South Korea. While it retains some manufacturing capacity elsewhere, the drastic change puts the fate of its ailing smartphone business into question once again.

Android Q update may hit Chromebooks before your phone

Android Q update may hit Chromebooks before your phone

If you've got a smartphone that you didn't buy in the last several months, you might not get the Android Q update before your best buddy's chromebook. One reason this is a distinct possibility is the nature of the update process. Because Google takes a big part in creating each new version of Android, but does not own every phone manufacturer, there are steps in place between here and there.

AT&T 5G plans could price for speed, not data

AT&T 5G plans could price for speed, not data

AT&T's 5G service may be split into speed tiers rather than priced by data caps, with the carrier's CEO arguing that the same strategy which has worked in fixed line broadband could prove equally successful - and, for AT&T, lucrative - for next-generation wireless. The carrier is preparing to launch its 5G service for consumers, having paved the way with controversial "5G E" branding for its so-called "5G Evolution" network.

OnePlus 7 Pro price spilled, high end might break $1k

OnePlus 7 Pro price spilled, high end might break $1k

How much will the OnePlus 7 cost? I think the question you're better off asking is: How much will I be dishing out for the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G? Or perhaps you'll ask where you'll trade your old phone in for cash - but we're not going to go into that today. Instead, the OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G (all three models) had their prices spilled before the big reveal event in early May.

Samsung Galaxy Fold iFixit teardown exposes fragile phone’s big problem

Samsung Galaxy Fold iFixit teardown exposes fragile phone’s big problem

Many of you have probably figured this out by now, but the Galaxy Fold is a delicate device. After a number of reviewers reported problems with malfunctioning displays, Samsung decided to delay the Galaxy Fold's release date over those issues. That delay didn't come before iFixit managed to get its hands on the device, and its teardown today shows us just how fragile the Galaxy Fold actually is.
