Verizon’s cheapest 5G phone may soon be LG’s

The least expensive 5G-capable smartphone carried by Verizon right this minute is a Samsung Galaxy. There's the Samsung Galaxy A51 5G UW, as put on sale earlier today, hundreds of dollars cheaper than the next-most-inexpensive 5G phone on the carrier. The LG Q92 5G may soon take that title. Images leaked today suggest the new mid-range smartphone from LG could be the key to LG's late 2020 success in the United States.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 teased by T-Mobile, crease and all

Galaxy Z Fold 2 teased by T-Mobile, crease and all

We already know much about how the Galaxy Z Fold 2 looks like, thanks to Samsung's own teaser, but that doesn't exactly give us an idea of how the phone will actually look like in real life. Samsung did put out an official teaser starring BTS but it was so brief and staged that it was hard to get a true feel for the phone. Thankfully, T-Mobile's Desmond "Des" Smith was kind enough to spend more than just a few minutes on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 to give us mere mortals a closer look at Samsung's next-gen foldable.

iOS 13.6.1 released to fix Exposure Notification, green tint bugs

iPhone owners might just be waiting for iOS 14 to roll out one of the biggest changes to Apple's mobile platform in a long while. That, however, doesn't mean there's no longer any room for smaller releases, nor does it mean there is no need for those either. In fact, Apple has just released iOS 13.6.1 as a small yet important bugfix update that addresses an issue that could severely impact the efficacy of its new Exposure Notification framework for COVID-19 contact tracing.

iPhone 12 Pro could slip even further according to new leak

That Apple's 2020 iPhones won't be coming on time like most iPhones before it is pretty much accepted fact by now. That the company will be adopting a staggered announcement and launch strategy, however, is definitely unusual and speaks of the unusual times we find ourselves in. While devices aren't being pushed back to 2021, fortunately, some iPhones are coming later than usual, with the Pro models potentially launching in November at the earliest.

Motorola Razr 5G could be coming in early September

Although it hasn't given the formal word yet, it's highly unlikely that IFA 2020 will take place in September as an in-person event, at least not in the capacity as all IFA events since 1924. That, unfortunately, means that companies that were planning on making a big splash in Berlin this year have to make do with their own separate and potentially online-only alternatives. Case in point, Motorola has apparently scheduled something for September 9 and it's probably no mystery what it will reveal then.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Adaptive Frequency screen can drop to 10Hz to save power

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Adaptive Frequency screen can drop to 10Hz to save power

Many high-end phones these days boast having 120Hz screens or even just 90Hz but there's one thing that they don't say and that users take for granted. These phones can only switch between two to three refresh rates ranging from the usual 60Hz to the fastest 120Hz. Samsung, however, believes it can do better and has developed a new Adaptive Frequency screen that can go a lot lower, helping the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G and future 5G phones more battery in the long run.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra tops DxOMark list, doesn’t live up to one leak

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra was earlier described to shock the world and, in at least one aspect, it may have done just that with a bit of a pun. It didn't, however, meet at least one rumored feature that would have really set it apart from the rest of the smartphone brood. Despite the absence of an under-display selfie camera, the Mi 10 Ultra did manage to impress DxOMark, which should cause Huawei some worry.
