Nokia 8 is coming this month: these are its specs

Nokia 8 is coming this month: these are its specs

Good old Nokia is probably up to its old confusing naming schemes again. Fortunately for us there haven't been more than 3 Nokia-branded, HMD-made smartphones so far. But before July gives way to August, there might be four in total already. According to WinFuture.de's sources, the true Nokia flagship, a high-end model, is just around the corner. And it will be called the Nokia 8, not the Nokia 9 as previously believed. And apparently, that's not the only thing that might not hit the mark either.

Meizu PRO 7 invite has a hidden surprise

If there were any doubt that the Meizu PRO 7 would have a rather unconventional second screen on its back, the company's press invite puts those to rest. Or at least that seems to be the case based on these leaked photos of what is allegedly the boxed invitation for the smartphone's unveiling in two weeks. Because in addition to the details of the event, the box also contained a replica of the Meizu PRO 7, including its second screen.

Remove HTC Keyboard ads: here’s how [UPDATE]

Yes, you read that right. As if it weren't bad enough to be faced with ads no matter what corner of the Interwebs you go, HTC has decided that you should also see them in almost all screens of your smartphone. HTC has just pushed out an update to the Touchpal keyboard that it uses by default on some of its smartphones, like last year's HTC 10, that puts very visible and obnoxious ads at the very top of the keyboard, which means you get to see them all the time.

Squeeze for Alexa, coming to the HTC U11 very soon [UPDATE: It’s out!]

Squeeze for Alexa, coming to the HTC U11 very soon [UPDATE: It’s out!]

In the future, we might no longer need to even touch our phones to control them. We can just do it by voice. That is, if Samsung's vision for Bixby ever truly takes off. In the meantime, however, we'll have to content ourselves with less powerful but more useful personal assistants like Google Assistant and Alexa. And we'll still need to have a physical way to trigger those, like, say, squeezing your phone, which is exactly what HTC wants you to do with its U11 phone, possibly starting this week.

Galaxy C10 leak teases Samsung’s first dual camera smartphone

Samsung's Galaxy S8 is easily the hottest phone of 2017 so far, but you could say it's missing one big feature from recent smartphone trends: a dual camera setup on the rear. Fortunately, the year isn't over yet, and Samsung has several devices on the way — namely the Galaxy Note 8 — that are said to be the company's first with a dual camera on the rear.

Basically it's a return to the basic Gallery app for Android users who don't ONLY want to use Google Photos.
