Motorola Razr 5G from Amazon comes with free fingerprint smudges

Motorola Razr 5G from Amazon comes with free fingerprint smudges

Foldable phones are a sight to behold but, in exchange, are also more fragile than the very first smartphones a decade ago. This dichotomy left Motorola in a bit of a bind. Either ship the Motorola Razr flaunting its flexible screen or make sure it's well protected in transit. Initially, Motorola chose the former but has now changed its mind, deciding that fingerprints smudges and a pinch of worry are worth having to send a new unit for free because the first one got damaged in shipping.

Huawei might be able to buy Samsung screens, Sony camera sensors

Huawei might be able to buy Samsung screens, Sony camera sensors

Huawei just recently announced its Mate 40 series and, perhaps to no one's surprise, it was already rated with high scores on DxOMark's photography and new display benchmarks. While its new flagships may be able to keep the company afloat for a while, there is still a lot of doubt whether it can survive for long if it can't get its hands on components its needs to make phones and networking equipment. It might soon be able to breathe just a little easier if tips about approved export licenses are true.

Galaxy Z Flip 2 might launch on time after all

There are already some rumors floating around for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 but whispers about Samsung's other foldable phone seem to have fallen quiet. The last we heard about what should be called the Galaxy Z Flip 2 was back in May, though there was one quick word that dashed hopes it would be coming early next year. Now the same source that broke that disappointing tip is now giving fans of the foldable clamshell some hope, saying that the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will be launching next Spring after all.

Next Galaxy phone may flip you, the hardcore fan of iPhone

There are two schools of thought when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S21 (or S30), both of which appear VIA leakers. Both leakers are relatively trustworthy, and both have delivered their fair share of accurate and/or helpful information on smartphones before official reveal. One says the power in the Samsung Galaxy S21 will be a step backward - the other says the design of the S21 will "bring people back and iPhone users to Samsung."

iPhone 12 could be hiding reverse wireless charging after all

iPhone 12 could be hiding reverse wireless charging after all

Apple hasn't had that much luck with its own wireless chargers, at least if you look at the still MIA AirPower, so it was a bit surprising when it announced the all-new old-named MagSafe wireless charging system for the iPhone 12. That has almost made a lot forget about the wireless charging capabilities that have been rumored for iPhones since last year. Apple apparently didn't forget and may have sneaked in a reverse wireless charging feature that it may be reserving for new AirPods.

UK to ban carriers from selling network-locked phones next year

UK to ban carriers from selling network-locked phones next year

There was a time when it seemed that carrier-subsidized phones as going out of fashion. That hasn't changed at all in the US where carriers still hold sway over people's mobile purchases but the landscape has shifted slightly in Europe. People there still get their phones from their carrier of choice but regional regulations have taken steps against lock-ins that US consumers have pretty much accepted as a fact of life. The UK is following suit and will soon force its remaining carriers to sell only unlocked phones by December 2021.

LG WING 5G is landing its swiveling screen on AT&T next week

LG has made great phones and some not so great phones. Whether they sell well or not is a different question but it's hard to deny it has created some rather unusual and sometimes innovative designs over the past years. The LG WING definitely takes the cake, at least for now, and sits on both ends of the spectrum. Those who have been enamored by its swiveling screen but scared off by its price tag may now get their chance to get one, presuming they trade it their old phone and pledge loyalty to AT&T.
