Moto X 2017 leak reveals dual cameras, Snapdragon 625

Both CES and MWC 2017 have come and gone but Motorola has been relatively silent on its other smartphone lines. While it did unveil the 5th gen Moto G, it hasn't said a word yet about a new Moto X or even a new Moto E. This latest leak, however, seems to reaffirm that, yes, the 2017 Moto X is still a thing. But more than just giving a glimpse at its near final body, we're also seeing some confirmation of features, which include a dual camera system.

OnePlus 3T Midnight Black limited edition now in the US

Black is the new black, or at least as far as high-gloss black smartphones are concerned. Ever the contrarian, OnePlus is adding a different twist. It's not glossy mind you, but not its usual matte or old standstone either. It's all black but still also all metal, giving the new OnePlus 3T Midnight Black a very dark visage while still keeping the surface free of fingerprints. But if you have your heart set on this, better be quick on those fingers. There's no telling how long this limited edition will last.

Apple didn’t copy iPhone design in China, says Beijing court

Apple has finally caught a break in its rather tumultuous relationship with the Chinese market. The Cupertino-based company has long been trying to woo one of the world's largest smartphone markets with mixed results. While iPhones are indeed popular in China, Apple has been experiencing rather strong opposition not just from rivals but also from government agencies and patent holding entities. At least Apple has gotten a slight reprieve now that the Beijing Intellectual Property Court has overturned a previous ruling that found Apple guilty of copying a design patent for the iPhone 6.

And suffice it to say, we might be looking at a high-end smartphone that is going to try hard to recover from last year's fiasco.

New red iPhone 7 already modded with black display on front

Apple's new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have just launched, and it's hard to argue against how awesome the color looks on the iconic smartphone. Well, on the back side, that is. What you can argue against is Apple's choice to go with the white plate on the display side of the device as opposed to black. This is, of course, a purely subjective criticism, but it's one that many users have been vocal about online.
