iPhone 11 debut on Tuesday with launch happening next week

IFA 2019 is slowly winding down but Apple might be kicking up a media storm in a little over 24 hours. Now that Android phone makers except Huawei have had their time in the spotlight, Apple has ample opportunity to take center-stage and hog all the attention for itself. And if rumors are correct, fans need not wait long to get the new iPhone in their hands, or at least in their checkout baskets. Apple may even have a surprise for New Yorkers in the coming weeks to showcase its newly renovated Cube.

Nokia 9 PureView DxOMark review shows it has a long way to go

That race may have now switched over once more to megapixel counts but not before HMD Global took things to their extreme. Inheriting a beloved name, the Nokia 9 PureView put five cameras in an admittedly interesting arrangement. But as DxOMark's review of the phone's photography capabilities shows, more doesn't always mean better.

Huawei Mate X will immediately be obsolete when it launches next month

Product launch schedules aren't rocket science but those are also carefully made with certain windows of opportunity in mind. When they miss those schedules, there's a very strong chance it will affect other products or be affected adversely. That definitely seems to be the case with Huawei's first and so far only foldable phone that has been delayed by half a year. It may finally launch next month but it might already be outdated and replaced by a new model in just a few months.

iPhone XR 2, 2019 reboot details leak Apple’s latest budget iPhone

Today we've put together details via rumors of the next-generation budget-friendly iPhone XR from Apple. Given the recent news that the iPhone XR out-shipped every other smartphone in the world in the first half of the year, it seems fitting that we should get another version of the device by the end of this year. What better way to allow a wide array of people to have access to the iOS ecosystem than to sell an iPhone that looks like new, feels like new, but doesn't cost nearly as much as the most premium new iPhone 11?

Huawei P30 Pro gets makeover to shortcut Trump’s Android ban

The Huawei P30 Pro is not a new device - but you might be forgiven for thinking it was, reading news today. This device was re-introduced, in a way, to audiences last night at IFA 2019, a technology conference at which Huawei took an already-successful, already-released device and showed it off with a pair of new colors: Misty Lavender and Mystic Blue. Doing this allows Huawei to ship a "new" phone with Android 10, Google's newest operating system update, while their actual new device, Huawei Mate 30, cannot be launched with official Google certification.

It has been making phones under different brands like BlackBerry and Alcatel but TCL might have finally decided it's time for it to return to the mobile market.

Microsoft Project xCloud public preview starts really soon in one country

Game streaming is touted to be the inevitable and unavoidable future of commercial gaming but, for that to work seamlessly, a reliable and fast Internet connection is required.
