Galaxy S22 battery leak continues disappointing rumor trend

Galaxy S22 battery leak continues disappointing rumor trend

We're still months away from its debut, but rumors surrounding the Galaxy S22 series are already piecing together an almost complete picture of Samsung's next latest and greatest smartphone. Unfortunately, those leaks don't exactly paint a reassuring picture of the "greatest" effort from the company, especially when it comes to specs. Many of what we've heard so far seem to suggest a "same old, same old" affair, but one aspect, in particular, might leave even Samsung fans scratching their heads in confusion.

iPhone 13 price promotions are 2021’s biggest Apple shock

iPhone 13 price promotions are 2021’s biggest Apple shock

iPhone 13 preorders kick off on Friday, but while there were no big surprises in Apple's sticker pricing for the four new smartphones, the deals on offer could make 2021 an unusual year. There's no doubting that Apple has come to count on iPhone sales to help buoy its financial results, particularly in the first quarter after a new model, but it takes more than just a healthy spec sheet to win over new buyers.

HTC Wildfire E Ultra is a poor sign of life

HTC Wildfire E Ultra is a poor sign of life

HTC is one of the last remaining pioneers of the mobile phone market still making phones, but it doesn't mean it's doing well like Motorola or Sony (of Sony Ericsson). It hasn't launched any notable smartphone of late, and the phones that it did put out are mostly on the budget side, limited to a very small number of markets. HTC's smartphone business is still alive, though, as this sighting of a new phone proves. But if the HTC Wildfire E Ultra is any indication, it might not be that way for long.

Galaxy S22 Ultra charging speed upgrade will be modest again

Galaxy S22 Ultra charging speed upgrade will be modest again

Samsung has made great strides in the smartphone market, but there is one technology in particular where it seems to be stuck in the past. While the rest of its competitors have gone above and beyond when it comes to charging, even Samsung's flagships haven't moved forward considerably. It did make a step forward last year but then took a step back again this year. It seems that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will continue the dance next year with a half-step forward in terms of charging speeds.

Pixel 6 Pro Tensor CPU leak paints a confusing picture

Pixel 6 Pro Tensor CPU leak paints a confusing picture

Major smartphone makers seem to have shifted their strategies a bit to market self-designed silicon, either for imaging or for running the entire device. Perhaps inspired by the attention that Apple has gotten with its new M1 Silicon, more and more manufacturers are getting into that same arena, from Vivo's V1 imaging chip to the AMD-powered Samsung Exynos 2200 to, of course, Google Tensor. The latter has so far avoided being leaked to death, but this latest information might finally settle one debate while leaving pundits and experts scratching their heads.

Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Apple just launched the iPhone 13 with its new A15 Bionic processor, and, naturally, it's already being hailed as the fastest in the mobile market, especially in graphics performance. That might not matter much to Android manufacturers who can't use the chip anyway, so Samsung, Xiaomi, and others are fighting in a different arena. At least for Samsung, that might not be an issue if this new information about the upcoming Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics is right on the mark.

Travelers are going to love the iPhone 13

Travelers are going to love the iPhone 13

Apple may have spared no hyperbole during its big iPhone 13 event yesterday, but eager travelers may find the most useful improvements didn't get a mention in the glossy launch stream. Like last year's iPhone 12 family, there's 5G across the board from the smallest iPhone 13 mini through to the flagship iPhone 13 Pro Max, but changes in how and where you'll be able to connect could make a difference.

Google Pixel 6 inspires official bags of chips

Google Pixel 6 inspires official bags of chips

Google is pumping up the message in Japan with official bags of chips in a variety of colors. The chips in each bag are (quite likely) the same flavor, regardless of the color you get, just like the Google Pixel 6. Regardless of the casing you get, the Google Pixel 6 will be the same experience. The differences will be between the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro - but the chips come first.

Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro wants to make “Cinemagic” filmmaking a thing

Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro wants to make “Cinemagic” filmmaking a thing

Smartphone cameras these days have all become sophisticated and powerful, enabling image and video capture with great detail and quality. Most smartphone makers are content to simply boast about those cameras though a few do try to put some context behind these sensors. More than just being able to take great photos or record smooth videos, Xiaomi is creating a new "Cinemagic" buzzword around the idea of dropping heavy and expensive movie-making equipment for a Xiaomi 11T or, better yet, a Xiaomi 11T Pro.

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

The Xiaomi 11T is a high-powered smartphone that is effectively a tiny movie screen. Xiaomi positions this device as a "Cinemagic" device, aiming to be a boss in the smartphone camera department. The cameras at the back of this device are very similar to those equipped with the Xiaomi 11T Pro - the big differences appear to come (at least in part) due to the processor inside either smartphone.

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Almost all smartphones these days compete in terms of features and power, with better specs often advertised to be the better choice. Fairphone, however, has always stood by itself on a different battleground, championing sustainability even if it meant getting behind the times. With the Fairphone 4, however, the company is at least trying to catch up with the latest 5G trend, but, based on this latest leak, that might be all that will be modern about the world's first "modular" 5G smartphone.

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

A lot of eyes were on Apple today, but not everyone is an iPhone fan. Some have naturally taken the opportunity to point out the latest iPhone 13's flaws, while others lost no time in trying to pull people's attention towards their own upcoming products. Google is actually one of those whose very brief Nexus Twitter stunt tried to focus the spotlight on the Pixel 6. As if by perfect coincidence, a fresh set of leaks about the Pixel 6 Pro just landed, confirming what we had heard so far but also bringing one disappointing news as well.
