Galaxy Note 10 Snapdragon 855+ might not be happening

Galaxy Note fans might be in for yet another disappointment with this year's models. Yes, plural as it might affect both the normal model and the Plus model. Emotions ran high when Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 855+, which seems to be perfect timing for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.

Galaxy Note 10 primary feature further confirmed: Aimed at new iPhone 11 war

Or rather, the fact that we've predicted its existence and specificity in feature details was confirmed, as was pretty much expected.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 leaked: The thumb I missed

Today we're taking a look at the ASUS ROG Phone 2, a device that's not yet been officially revealed in detail by its maker. This device will likely be the predictable evolution of its predecessor, with a slightly larger display, a newer processor, and maybe an odd new feature or two.

T-MoBell T-Mobile Taco Bell stores indicate apocalypse is near

That's right, there'll soon be "T-MoBell" stores in an area near you. It's not immediately clear whether people will ever literally see co-branded stores that have full services from either T-Mobile or Taco Bell, but for now, they'll appear on the same sort of ticket: "Smartphones + Tacos" in time for the Super Bowl. Is it just me, or does this remind anyone else of Snakes on a Plane for some reason? It might also be The End Times are near - we'll just have to wait and see!

Xfinity Mobile adds BYOD for phones

Xfinity Mobile adds BYOD for phones

BYOD means Bring Your Own Device, and it means the brand is no longer limited to mobile data coverage for the devices they, themselves, physically sell in-store.

LG G6 and LG V30 Android 9 Pie builds leak to provide hope

Samsung has long been regarded as one of the worst phone makers when it comes rolling out updates to its phones. It's still no Essential but has gotten better, which means others are now forced to take its place of shame. That spot may now be occupied by LG, ironically a close Google partner, whose 2017 flagships have yet to receive their slice of Pie. Fortunately, based on two leaks, Android 9 may just be around the corner for the LG G6 and LG V30.

OPPO Reno redeems the brand’s durability test reputation

Smartphones these days have become nearly all-glass affairs which may be good for durability. Some, however, have decided to introduce certain features that may compromise structural integrity a bit. The biggest culprit in that regard is the "popup camera" design that the likes of OPPO, Vivo, and ASUS have employed. After practically destroying the OPPO Find X, JerryRigEverything is putting its spiritual successor, the OPPO Reno, through the same tests to see if the company has learned its lessons.

Galaxy Note 10 production affected by South Korea-Japan politics

You'd often think that politics and the tech industry exist in completely separate realms but the real world is hardly that neat. One informs the other and, like in Huawei's case, can even negatively impact one another. While still far from the mess that the Chinese company has found itself in, Samsung may also be feeling the effects of an ongoing feud between South Korea and Japan which is now reported to disrupt the production of the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.

Pixel 4 cameras made it too easy to spot in the wild again

Many OEMs try their best to prevent their products from leaks, which is pretty impossible this day and age. Phone makers even go through the pains of putting an "anti-leak" case on the device. Unfortunately, such a case does no good when your phone has a distinctive design that makes it stand out even from a distance. Even more unfortunately for Google, that's exactly the case, no pun intended, with the Pixel 4 that was just spotted in the wild yet again.

HTC is one of the embattled smartphone companies that just refuses to say "Uncle!". Year after year, it puts out smartphones that fail to reach sales targets. Despite rumors that it's winding down its mobile business or focusing on niche markets with its Exodus blockchain phone, the company keeps putting on a strong face. It might have found another way to get its phones around by partnering with local companies to produce or market HTC-branded phones like a never before heard Wildfire E in Russia.
