It's just days away from the release of both smartphones, at this point.

Huawei P20 prototype leak hints at curious design changes

Huawei P20 prototype leak hints at curious design changes

MWC 2018 is just a few days away but, as far as new phones are concerned, it’s expected to be a bit low key. Aside from Samsung’s big splash, of course. Many major OEMs are skipping the event, including Huawei. That doesn’t mean, of course, that Huawei doesn’t have a flagship ready. The Huawei P20 might just be a month away from its debut, but photos of a leaked prototype leave very little left to the imagination but with plenty of questions left unanswered.

BLU VIVO X brings four cameras to the mid-range table

BLU VIVO X brings four cameras to the mid-range table

Two heads are better than one, as they say, but why stop there? That is the line of thinking that BLU is citing for its latest VIVO X smartphone. And it isn’t referring to the figurative head of the phone, a.k.a. the CPU. That’s pretty much unimpressive here. In fact, most of the VIVO X will probably sound unimpressive. It’s real claim to fame will be its two dual cameras, front and back, that try to make the VIVO X a bit more interesting and worth its relatively low price.

LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG may have said it’s tempering its smartphone frenzy, unlike Samsung, but that seems to only apply to its higher end phones. In addition to the LG V30 (2018), it will also be introducing two, actually four, new mid-range models as well. Carrying on its K series, the new K10 (2018) and K8 (2018) follow that pattern of small improvements. But for shutterbugs on a budget, both smartphones might have something to offer in terms of features and gimmicks, not necessarily quality.

Galaxy S9 release date might be coming up fast

By this point, we've had so many Galaxy S9 leaks that it would be a wonder if there were any surprising announcements left to make during Samsung's reveal event on February 25. In fact, assuming the various rumors we've heard about hardware are true, pretty much the only thing left up in the air is the Galaxy S9's release date. We may even know that going into February 25, thanks to new rumors that are appearing today.

Galaxy S9 augmented reality demo extracted from Unpacked app

Samsung fans, and Samsung itself, are just counting down the days before the huge Unpacked 2018 event in Barcelona.

Of course, there’s always room for more, especially when the source is Samsung itself. Apparently, the Unpacked 2018 Android app hides a trail that, with a good amount of hacking, reveals the Galaxy S9 in all its augmented reality glory.

Galaxy S9, Uhsupp social network app to launch side by side

The Galaxy S9 hasn’t even debuted yet but it’s already being criticized for not having enough new features to be worth buyers’ cash. Actually, it might have but that’s not exactly a good thing. According to Korean media, the Galaxy S9 will be Samsung’s first phone to have its second (or third) social networking app installed. Trademarked as “Uhsupp”, this app will supposedly let Galaxy S9 owners share their location with friends, comment on that, and even send messages to one another. In other words, features that other social networking apps already offer.

Nokia 8 Pro with rotating penta-lens Carl Zeiss camera coming

Hungry for more and actually high-end Nokia phones? MWC 2018 next week just might satisfy your craving but in a somewhat odd way. No, it won’t be the Nokia 9, much less the Nokia 10. And it won’t be a Nokia 8 (2018) either. Instead, it will supposedly be a Nokia 8 Pro with the latest mobile processor, an 18:9 screen, and one special trick that may tickle the fancy of serious mobile photographers: five lenses that can rotate to change the camera’s focal length.
