Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Samsung has a folding phone challenge. On the one hand, the smartphone-maker can't afford to rush its flexible smartphone - colloquially, though unofficially, known as the "Galaxy X" - to market and risk it being underwhelming. At the same time, however, the company's addiction to being first out of the gate with new technologies leaves it paranoid that rivals might beat it to the finish line.

Galaxy S10: These details beat iPhone X, or all is lost

Galaxy S10: These details beat iPhone X, or all is lost

The Samsung Galaxy S10 series appeared in a video created by CC, in three parts, showing the possibilities from front to back. These devices, if they look like this and act like this, won't allow other brands any breathing room. If the Samsung Galaxy S10 series phones - three phones - look like this, Samsung won't have need for any other phones the rest of the year.

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn’t been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that’s the product of a team up between Verizon, Motorola, and Qualcomm. The problem, and what leaves me scratching my head, is that the 5G mod won’t be available until sometime next year, while the Moto Z3 is launching this month as a Verizon exclusive.

Alcatel 7 brings a 18:9 phablet to MetroPCS lineup

Alcatel 7 brings a 18:9 phablet to MetroPCS lineup

At the beginning of the year, Alcatel unveiled its new branding scheme and its three new smartphone lines: the Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3, and Alcatel 1. All of these shared one thing in common: the 18:9 nearly bezel-less design that has become the de facto design standard on both premium and mid-tier phones. Not content with just those three, the TCL-owned phone maker is bringing a fourth one, the Alcatel 7, to the US and to MetroPCS subscribers starting today.

The Google Pixel 3 is in trouble: this is why

The Google Pixel 3 is in trouble: this is why

Google definitely pulled off a miracle when it came out with the first Pixel phone. There was some amount of doubt that Google had what it takes to make its own smartphone. And then the Pixel 2 came out which, despite a very rough start, is still considered to be the embodiment of the perfect Android smartphone. With this year’s Pixel 3, Google will be trying to prove that “third time’s a charm” but things might not turn out that way this time around. And, no, it’s not because of that notch.

Pixel 3 XL hands-on video leak confirm specs, design

Now that Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note 9, we’re really just waiting for the two biggest names in the smartphone market to butt heads: Google and Apple. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be facing off with the 2nd gen iPhone X, iPhone X Plus, and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. But while the previous two Pixel generations have been met with anticipation and excitement, there’s a great deal of hesitation with the Pixel 3, mostly because of its design but also because of some of its specs.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite pops up with a notch

Huawei Mate 20 Lite pops up with a notch

Huawei has gained no small amount of confidence after it has racked up some serious street cred in recent smartphone shipment numbers. It has managed to surpass Apple, perhaps temporarily only, and wants to unseat even Samsung. It just might have its chance with its upcoming Huawei Mate 20 launch. But not everyone will be able to afford those high-end phones, of course. Which is why this Mate 20 Lite will be swooping in to give them that premium feeling at a third of the price.

Android Pie update: HTC, Sony, Huawei commit

Android Pie update: HTC, Sony, Huawei commit

Every new Android version kicks off two guessing games. The first is at the start of the development cycle when users try to guess which sweet dessert the release will be named after. The second is when the final version is finally formally launched. That’s when users start guessing when and if their precious smartphone is actually eligible for the update. To help make their customers guess less, some manufacturers have chimed in, publicly committing to bringing Android 9 Pie to at least some of their latest devices “soon”.

The Note 9 is an island in a sea of notches and trends

The Note 9 is an island in a sea of notches and trends

At times, it can feel like the smartphone industry is all sharing the same bucket of ideas. Notched displays, dual camera arrays, and increasingly skinny devices with as few ports as possible: maybe Apple had one idea first, or some other company, but eventually they spread across the board. Turns out, though, the Galaxy Note 9 has a bucket of its own.
