Lenovo foldable Android tablet shown off again

Lenovo foldable Android tablet shown off again

Lenovo might not be the biggest name in the mobile scene, smartphones or tablets, but you can’t say it isn’t willing to make some ambitious leaps. From the first commercial AR Tango phone to the Yoga Book tablet and, indirectly, to the modular Moto Z, it has been willing to play around with trends and hype, whether or not it actually continues to produce and support those products. For now, we can at least appreciate how Lenovo is this close to bringing the foldable device dream to life, showing off a working prototype at the Lenovo Tech World and making our mouths drool.

Facebook patent reveals modular smartphone plans

The idea of a modular smartphone — where a number of components can be swapped out for replacements or allow users to focus on a key feature, such as a larger battery — has been widely pursued by the tech industry over the last few years, with Google going as far as developing a prototype for its Project Ara concept (seen above).

The 2018 iPhone supplier war has an unexpected victor

The 2018 iPhone component wars may so far have focused on who'll make the processor, but LG has reportedly snuck in and snatched one exclusive right from under rivals' noses. Apple's plans for next year's smartphone - which could end up being the iPhone 9, iPhone 8S, or any one of a number of names - are supposedly demanding a big change in internal architecture. According to South Korean sources, only one firm has been able to meet those demands.

Essential Phone “a few weeks” away insists Rubin

Essential Phone “a few weeks” away insists Rubin

The Essential Phone may have missed Andy Rubin's first ship date promise, but the "Father of Android" now insists the smartphone is just a few weeks away. Essential made headlines back in May with its unusually notched OLED display, modular accessory connectivity, and the promise of near-unmodified Android. However, it then made a second splash - and not one the company was presumably hoping for - when it failed to arrive according to the original schedule.

LG G4 Android 7.0 Nougat update available for some models

Some, in fact most, manufacturers have short term memories. They tend to forget devices that sometimes aren’t even that old. Even those that are just 2 years old. Fortunately, LG, who prides itself for being a good Android citizen, hasn’t forgotten yet. Owners of the LG G4 have received notifications to upgrade to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version. But if you still haven’t gotten it yet, you can manually force your way into Nougat, provided you have the right model.

Galaxy Note 8 renders show still rounded corners

The date is no longer a secret. Samsung itself has proudly announced that it will be holding an Unpacked event on 23rd August. And while it doesn’t mention it by name, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see Samsung’s not so subtle hints at a Galaxy Note 8 device. What Samsung hasn’t revealed, naturally, is how the “bigger” phablet will look. Thankfully, case maker Ghostek isn’t so shy about showing that off, revealing was looks to be simply a bigger Galaxy S8+.

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.
