Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

Full Windows 10 on phones is not going to happen, insists Microsoft

If you had any fantasies of running a "regular" Windows 10 stack on your phone, Microsoft just dashed them. Not that it was a completely viable dream anyway, even with Windows 10 on ARM almost in full swing. Microsoft's own Joe Belfiore confirms that phones, if there will ever be new ones, will be running Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 Mobile only. Which also implies that Windows 10 Mobile isn't going anywhere, at least for now.

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Honor 9 Premium launches in Europe with flagship specs

Pretty soon, Huawei sub-brand Honor would have shed off its image as a maker of less than premium handsets. It might even start to rival Huawei itself. The Honor 9, which it just launched just launched last month, was already on the periphery. With the Honor 9 Premium, it might just have crossed the threshold. While one spec still has a foot in mid-range territory, this so far European exclusive still pretty much offers high-end specs for less than most flagships this year.

Moto G5S Plus leak hints at an aspiring dual camera figher

Moto G5S Plus leak hints at an aspiring dual camera figher

The dual camera craze has hit the mid-range. Thanks to chip makers supporting this mobile photography trend, smartphone makers are finally able to put two cameras on the back. Motorola seems to be quite intent on jumping on this train as well. As leaked before, Moto might have a certain G5S Plus in the works, which would be its first ever dual camera smartphone.

Samsung Bixby US launch has finally started for real

Samsung Bixby US launch has finally started for real

It seems that Samsung has finally realized how much its losing the longer it delays Bixby’s rollout in the US. It is losing credibility, users, and a potential treasure trove of data. To help it improve Bixby, of course. Well the long wait is over and Bixby is finally available to the public starting today. Now all that remains is to see whether it will understand potentially hundreds of thousands of users better than the initial set of frustrated testers.

LG V30 Geekbench scores will make you want to get it

LG V30 Geekbench scores will make you want to get it

While still a contentious topic, benchmarks are still popular and widely used, more as a common point of reference and a launchpad for discussion. While they may or may not reflect real world use, they can come pretty close to giving users an idea of what they're in for. And those waiting for LG's "true" 2017 flagship might be in for a treat. The LG V30 has just popped up at Geekbench, just a month shy of its official unveiling, and it has some pretty sweet numbers to boast of.

Foldable Surface Phone could just be a cruel tease

Foldable Surface Phone could just be a cruel tease

This is a tease in the truest sense of the word. Microsoft Azure's social accounts have put up what would have been a boring Node.js training ad if not for what it used to include in the image: a never before seen device that immediately calls to mind a foldable tablet or smartphone. Give how the post remains online, it's possible Microsoft didn't "accidentally" leak that image. It's more possible that Microsoft intentionally created a Photoshopped image for fun, which might also be a cruel joke for the Windows Phone loyal.

These iPhone 8 pictures show display on in high resolution

The collection of photos of the iPhone 8 we're about to show you basically spoil the whole phone reveal. While we cannot be certain that we're looking at the iPhone 8 - or whatever it'll be called - until Apple reveals it, there's good reason to believe that the design (as it stands now) is right on point with the images we're about to show. Some of these images are renderings, some of these images are photos.

Apple’s 2018 iPhone’s key parts may be made by its arch-rival

Apple’s 2018 iPhone’s key parts may be made by its arch-rival

Samsung will once again produce the processors Apple needs for the company's best selling product according to a report from Korea. This move would place Samsung's chipmaking factories back in line with iPhone hardware after losing their contract with Apple to TSMC in the year 2013. That was a chip contract loss for the history books.

Pixel XL 2 concept video will leave your mouth watering

Pixel XL 2 concept video will leave your mouth watering

Smartphones are technically just tools. However, they have come an extension of ourselves that we treat them the same way we treat our body. Not just with care but also with some sense of style. We like our phones to look good, depending on how we define “good”, just as they are functional. The HTC U11, Samsung Galaxy S8, and LG G6 have all proven that it can be done. And soon, the Google Pixel XL 2 will join their ranks, if this recently released “official” concept video is any indication.

LG V30 case by Ringke shows off back design

What is it with smartphone makers these days and their asymmetrical designs? First Samsung designs a Galaxy Tab S3 bottom edge with uneven holes and then it will supposedly follow it up with a Galaxy Note 8 whose fingerprint scanner has been shoved way off to one side. Now it seems that the LG V30’s back will have a somewhat unbalanced design as well. At least based on images of cases for the soon to be announced smartphone made by accessory maker Ringke.

Essential phone UK launch revealed, still MIA in US

Essential phone UK launch revealed, still MIA in US

Essential, founded, backed, and blessed by Andy Rubin, seems to be all about ambition. Whether such ambition translates in reality is perhaps the biggest question haunting the startup and its first product, the Essential PH-1 smartphone. It has now come to light that Essential is laying the groundwork to launch the phone in the UK this year, which isn’t at all surprising. What’s surprising is that it is pushing through even while the Essential phone remains absent in its first market: the US.
