Galaxy Z Fold Tab with tri-fold design could launch early next year

Galaxy Z Fold Tab with tri-fold design could launch early next year

Even with Huawei's, Motorola's, and now even Xiaomi's presence, it's hard to deny that, at least for the moment, Samsung has cornered the foldable phone market that it also created itself. It is close to launching third-generation models of its Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip phones but there are indicators that it isn't going to stop there. Aside from future rollable phones, the company has been known to be toying around with ideas for more foldable devices, one of which might even be arriving as early as next year's first quarter.

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Nokia N-Gage games brought back to life with EKA2L1 Symbian emulator

Although perhaps most notorious for turning the mobile market into a dumping ground for dozens of models, the old Nokia was also famous for some iconic phones as well as some innovations that were far too ahead of their time. Even before mobile gaming became the lucrative industry it is today, Nokia was actually the first to put out a proper gaming phone way before smartphones became the reigning device category. For those old enough to remember or those who want to see what the fuss was all about, a Symbian/S60 emulator now lets you turn your Android phone into the modern version of the Nokia N-Gage.

iPhone 13 mini renders hint at a conspicuous camera redesign

iPhone 13 mini renders hint at a conspicuous camera redesign

Despite the popularity that its iPhone SE models enjoyed, last year's iPhone 12 mini failed to meet Apple's expectations. Sales of the smallest iPhone 12 were so low that the company reportedly slashed production by a large percentage. That said, it seems that it isn't giving up on the mini iPhone just yet and a new leak reveals that it will even stick to the same design in the iPhone 13 mini but with a change that can be immediately seen on the outside.

Galaxy Z Flip 2 might actually be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3

Galaxy Z Flip 2 might actually be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3

What's in a name, really, especially when it comes to smartphones. Although most follow a natural progression of numbers, some, like Chinese manufacturers, skip the number 4 due to superstition. There are also times when companies adjust their numbering, whether or not it makes sense, like what Samsung is reportedly doing this year. There will be no Galaxy Z Flip 2, sources say, and a Galaxy Z Flip 3 will launch with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in July instead.

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra to bring its three 64MP cameras to global markets

ZTE Axon 30 Ultra to bring its three 64MP cameras to global markets

An oddity a few years back, almost all smartphones these days have no fewer than two cameras. Some more eccentric ones even have five or more (if you consider 3D ToF sensors as cameras). In most cases, however, those cameras are often not created equal, with manufacturers favoring one mode of photography over another, which sometimes means lower picture quality in some modes compared to others. So that users won't have to choose, ZTE has made the rather unusual decision to give the Axon 30 Ultra not one not even two but three cameras, all with 64MP sensors.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 S Pen won’t have a dedicated slot

Galaxy Z Fold 3 S Pen won’t have a dedicated slot

Samsung will be unveiling its most powerful Galaxy in two weeks but that won't be a smartphone as some might have hoped. Samsung's most powerful Galaxy phone, however, might come earlier in July but it's already proving to be a mixed bag. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will, of course, be interesting because of its expected support for the S Pen but it might not have a silo similar to the Galaxy Note it will replace this year.

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 teardown reveals beautiful complexity

Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2 teardown reveals beautiful complexity

Some smartphones are getting more interesting again after the market has seemingly plateaued in design and innovation. Leave it to gaming smartphones, however, to really take the cake when it comes to pushing the envelope not just in terms of performance but also in design. After the very first ASUS ROG Phone, it is perhaps Lenovo's latest Legion Phone Duel 2 that has the most peculiar quirks and features. And while it didn't survive the durability test, JerryRigEverything's teardown reveals just how unique the phone is on the inside.

Huawei P50 might not come with a charger for a different reason

Huawei P50 might not come with a charger for a different reason

Always a trendsetter, Apple's removal of phone chargers from its iPhone boxes is already being copied by its rivals. Amusingly, those are the same companies, or at least one of them, that ridiculed the unpopular move. Samsung and Xiaomi, however, won't be the only ones following in Cupertino's footsteps and Huawei might be the next big name to remove the charger starting with the upcoming Huawei P50. That said, it wouldn't be for financial or environmental reasons like the others.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 20 Ultra update brings eSIM milestone

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 20 Ultra update brings eSIM milestone

eSIM, short for embedded (not electronic) SIM, is supposed to be the SIM technology of the future. More convenient than popping out SIM card trays or physically interacting with carriers, the technology has been ironically but unsurprisingly hampered by carriers who aren't that keen on making it too easy for users to switch networks. Unfortunately, that also hampered even those phones with both physical and embedded SIMs so it's actually a pleasant surprise to hear that T-Mobile is finally enabling it for last year's Galaxy Note 20.

Pokemon Home is about to ditch these Android and iPhone models

Pokemon Home is about to ditch these Android and iPhone models

It's been a little while since we last heard from Pokemon Home, but today the developers behind it announced that the app will soon stop supporting certain OS versions and devices. This will affect both Android and iPhone users, so if you use Pokemon Home to manage your Pokemon collection, you'll definitely want to make sure that you're on a supported device by the time this update arrives later this summer.

Android 12 leak reveals features yet to come

Android 12 leak reveals features yet to come

It's still a few months before Android's next major update gets locked for new features and we're still waiting for the third developer preview to land. That doesn't mean that development is stagnating, of course, just that there's still a lot of things cooking in Google's kitchen. Many of these are still unavailable for the public to see but, fortunately, there are a few leaked builds that give us a bigger picture of what to expect from Android 12 later this year.

Fast Pair redesign now supports more than 100 Bluetooth devices

Fast Pair redesign now supports more than 100 Bluetooth devices

Bluetooth is such a pervasive wireless technology that most people take it for granted until they have to go through pairing processes. Despite how widely it is used in wireless audio accessories, smartwatches, and even smart home appliances, pairing Bluetooth devices has never really become painless or consistent across platforms. Android, however, is catching up to the former and the newly redesigned Fast Pair feature promises a smoother experience for over a hundred Bluetooth devices from different brands.
