Google Pixel 4a 5G leak makes you wonder: Why not XL?

Today the Google Pixel 4a 5G was revealed in an unofficial capacity in a manner similar to Tuesday's leak of the Pixel 5. This device may seem like a traditional bump from one iteration of a phone to a (5G) version - but it's not as simple as all that. Instead, we're getting a similar name, basically the same software, and the same amount of data storage - and a few kicks in the pants.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G could help send 5G mainstream

Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 750G, which appears to be the successor to the 730G with a major upgrade: 5G support. The 750G will take its place alongside Qualcomm's other 5G-capable 700-series SoCs, and given the numbering, it'll probably be a little less powerful than other chips in the series. Still, Qualcomm is touting some fairly big improvements over the 730G, so the 750G should be a pretty capable SoC.

Pokemon Sword & Shield on Android shown in curious emulator demo

Today there's a bit of a "shady" project in the mix that runs Nintendo Switch games on Android phones. This project is not something you can get your hands on easily, and we certainly would not recommend that you attempt to do so. It would appear that the project utilizes Nintendo coding that was obtained with means that weren't entirely on-the-level, if you know what I mean.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

It's not unusual for Samsung to launch a "lite" version of its flagship models, although the name has varied from time to time.

While the phone is definitely "Lite" in some aspects, there are also some specs that put it above the more expensive base Galaxy Note 20 model.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series to get 5G capability next year

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series to get 5G capability next year

Qualcomm may have the lion's share of the smartphone processor market but there is still one segment that it doesn't have a firm grasp on. On the lower and budget tiers, MediaTek's processors are often the go-to solutions, often because of their affordability rather than their features. With MediaTek aggressively pushing its 5G-capable Dimensity processors on high and middle tiers, Qualcomm is now trying to hit where it hurts by promising a 5G Snapdragon 400 series chip next year.

Xiaomi sub-brand POCO has been rumored to be working on another model to add to its collection, that despite having already released two phones earlier this year.
