Note 8: Samsung Unpacked event in August confirmed

This afternoon invitations for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 event were released to the press with a tagline: "Do bigger things." If that weren't enough to entice the public to get pumped up about the event itself, the silhouettes of the device and its new S Pen might. This event invite revealed the day of the event and the timing, too: August 23rd, 2017, at 11AM EDT (that's 11AM Eastern, New York time, 8AM Pacific.)

Moto Z2 Force US model tipped with stunted specs and smaller battery

The Moto Z2 Force may prove a disappointment for U.S. buyers if a new report is accurate. According to leaked marketing materials, the model sold in the U.S. will have more modest specs than the versions sold elsewhere, one example being the inclusion of only 4GB of RAM versus the 6GB everyone else will get. The battery, too, will shed considerable capacity according to the materials.

The LG Q8 might surprise you

The LG Q8 might surprise you

LG has unveiled a new phone that's incoming at the end of the month. Say hello to the LG Q8, what sounds like a fairly capable phone with solid specifications, despite the fact that isn't a part of LG's well-known V-series or G-series. Regardless, LG Q8 probably won't have a difficult time finding buyers when it launches at the end of the month.

OnePlus 5 911 reboot problem addressed in new update

OnePlus 5 911 reboot problem addressed in new update

It's been a pretty whirlwind week for some Android users, especially those who own a OnePlus 5. On Tuesday, a OnePlus 5 user alerted Reddit to the fact that his phone rebooted whenever he tried to call 911. This, as you can imagine, is not a good thing, because having a phone reboot is the last thing anyone needs when they're trying to get in touch with emergency services.

Lenovo AI concept products try to make future life easier

Everyone’s doing AI these days, from Google to Apple, from smart speakers to smart cars. While different people and companies have different ideas about what artificial intelligence means in theory and in practice, almost all agree about using AI to build a better future. Lenovo, one of if not the leading PC makers in the world, is just as invested in this trend, or so it says. At its Tech World Innovation in Shanghai, it demonstrated just how serious it is with five AI powered products that you may or may not see in the near future.

Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu isn’t exactly one of the more popular smartphone brands outside of China but, for the past weeks, it has managed to pique market watchers’ curiosity. Not because it has banished all bezels (it still has some) or implemented an onscreen fingerprint scanner (it doesn’t). Instead, it is an odd curiosity because of the way it is implementing a niche “second screen” feature. Fortunately for Meizu fans, that won’t be the only interesting thing about it, at least based on this sighting at China’s TENAA agency.

Ugly iPhone 8 leak: If this is real, you won’t be happy

Ugly iPhone 8 leak: If this is real, you won’t be happy

This afternoon a set of photos of the iPhone 8 - or what appears to be the iPhone 8 - leaked in China. These images show a relatively official-looking piece of hardware - albeit a less-than-ideal version of what we expected. In this version of the iPhone 8, we see the Touch ID hole - the fingerprint reader - set on the back of the phone. Just the place we'd crossed our fingers it'd never end up.

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

If you, upon first hearing that the Galaxy S8 would feature a 3,000mAh battery, were concerned that it wouldn't be adequate enough, you're not alone. Many expressed concerns that Samsung banked too conservatively on its smaller flagship's battery capacity, and though the S8+ has a larger 3500mAh model, it doesn't matter much in light of the phone's larger overall size. Now that the phone is out and has been subjected to everyday life, are the concerns founded? Yes and no.

Galaxy S8 Bixby Voice: How to get started

This week Samsung's Bixby Voice feature begins to roll out to users everywhere - here's how to get it. This system is a relative long-time-coming, when we consider how long it was since Samsung revealed the feature for the phone.

Galaxy S8 Coral Blue available in the US: here’s where to get it

If you’ve been holding out on sinking your teeth, not to mention your wallet, into a Galaxy S8 or S8+, now might be a good time to review your options.

Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

If you had any fantasies of running a "regular" Windows 10 stack on your phone, Microsoft just dashed them. Not that it was a completely viable dream anyway, even with Windows 10 on ARM almost in full swing. Microsoft's own Joe Belfiore confirms that phones, if there will ever be new ones, will be running Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Mobile only. Which also implies that Windows 10 Mobile isn't going anywhere, at least for now.

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Pretty soon, Huawei sub-brand Honor would have shed off its image as a maker of less than premium handsets. It might even start to rival Huawei itself. The Honor 9, which it just launched just launched last month, was already on the periphery. With the Honor 9 Premium, it might just have crossed the threshold. While one spec still has a foot in mid-range territory, this so far European exclusive still pretty much offers high-end specs for less than most flagships this year.
