iPhone 8 with curved OLED display tipped for 2017

An iPhone with a curved OLED display could arrive as early as next year, according to new reports. Apple is apparently asking its display suppliers - which include companies like LG Display, Sharp, and Japan Display - to ramp up production of OLED panels, according to sources close to the matter. We've heard that Apple wants to deliver a knock-out for iPhone's 10th anniversary, and shipping a model with a curved OLED could be part of that strategy.

Microsoft and HP are working on a consumer-tier Windows 10 Mobile phone, according to sources.

iPhone 8’s first big secret spilled in Taiwan by Foxconn

iPhone 8’s first big secret spilled in Taiwan by Foxconn

Apple's iPhone 8 details appear (well before release date) at a talk with Sharp CEO Jeng-wu Tai. This event occurred over the weekend at at Tatung University and, at first, seemed innocuous enough. Speaking about displays isn't off-topic for Sharp's CEO, but revealing Apple's future is. A switch by Apple from LCD to OLED would be a big move, especially since it'd be the first major update to iPhone displays in years.

Nintendo NX pricing revealed in new leak, Mario tipped as launch title

Nintendo NX pricing revealed in new leak, Mario tipped as launch title

With all of this talk of the Nintendo NX launching in March 2017, it seems very strange that we still haven't received an official announcement from Nintendo. The company's silence on the NX has lead some to believe that the console will miss its March release window, but a new leak is suggesting - among other things - that the NX is still on track to launch in six months.

Nintendo NX patent shows controller with swappable buttons

I'd wager that most gamers have sat playing their favorite game with controller in hand and wished that their controller were arranged differently. I know I have wished that there were a button here or there rather than a d-pad at times. A patent application has surfaced that shows Nintendo is thinking about a slick new controller that can be configured to some extent to how the player wants it.

What’s up with the ‘deep blue’ iPhone 7 rumors?

What’s up with the ‘deep blue’ iPhone 7 rumors?

We saw an iPhone 7 rumor resurrected today: that there's a 'deep blue' iPhone 7 color in the pipeline. Rumors about this fabled blue phone surfaced earlier this year, and again resurfaced today on a Czech website that posted high-resolution photos of a gold-colored iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus dummy unit. According to the website, the source of its photos, an online retailer called Topp Ten, claims there is a deep blue version of Apple's upcoming handset, though it didn't supply any photos of the supposed model.

Nintendo plans to bolster NX launch with Mario, Pokemon, Zelda releases

Nintendo plans to bolster NX launch with Mario, Pokemon, Zelda releases

Console launches can be a tricky thing, and making sure a new console has enough big ticket games to support it can be even trickier - as evidenced by the fact that it rarely happens. It's a common complaint you hear every console cycle, with early adopters frequently lamenting the fact that they don't have any games to play on their shiny new game machine. It would seem that Nintendo isn't interested in letting that happen with its incoming NX console, if new rumors are to be believed.

Uber planning to map the world with $500 million investment

Since it first hit the scene, Uber has relied on Google Maps to get its drivers to folks who need a ride, but that may not be the case forever. A new report from unnamed sources speaking to The Financial Times say that Uber is planning to drop a cool $500 million on mapping the world as part of an initiative to focus on long-term growth. With mapping cars already on the road in the US and Mexico, Uber rolling out its self-made maps could be a reality sooner rather than later, too.

Nintendo's NX is still a console shrouded in mystery, but today a massive new leak might is dishing a lot of details about what it will offer when it arrives next year.

iPhone 7 renders show key details in rumored “Pro” model(s)

Hyper-realistic renderings of the iPhone 7 and the so-called iPhone 7 Pro have appeared this week courtesy of Martin Hajek. If you're unfamiliar with the work of this 3D illustrator, have a peek at some iPhone 6 renderings, or a rendering of an Apple-designed BB-8, or Hajek's early concept of the iPad mini. From there you'll find that, while the images above and below may appear to be very real, they are indeed made by this 3rd-party artist, not Apple. They're right on par with the details we've gathered over the past several weeks, as well - mostly.
