The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite came up in a leak this morning with a release date range in tow. Both of these devices are likely to take on the rest of the midrange phones that've become prominent of late, what with their low prices and not-half-bad specs.

It seems that Samsung is finally catching up with trends and it’s catching up fast. After ignoring those design and functionality changes, the Korean OEM has seemingly found the perfect guinea pigs for “innovation” and experimentation: the Galaxy A series. After the Galaxy A9 (2018) with its triple cameras and the Galaxy A8s with its “Infinity-O” punch hole camera cutout comes the never before heard Galaxy A10, which could be the first Samsung phone to bear a much-delayed Under Display Fingerprint Scanner.

Galaxy M series to bring a whole new mid-range line to India soon

While the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note phones are without a doubt Samsung’s biggest stars, not everyone could afford these premium flagships even if they wanted to.

Because next month, it is expected to launch the new Galaxy M series that may have three or even four phones from the get-go.

Samsung Sound on Display will help kill bezels and notches

Everyone seems to have their own idea on how to solve the problem of front-facing, from notches to sliders to punch-holes. There seems to be, however, fewer variations when it comes to the earpiece speakers. Some more daring ones like Xiaomi and Vivo have tried completely removing conventional speakers while others have simply reduced the speaker grille to a small slit. It seems that Samsung is moving towards the former with a new “Sound on Display” that may be coming as early as next month.

With the Honor View 20, what is known as the Honor V20 in China, the company is proving again why it deserves that, well, honor with some of the best features to rival even its own parent company.

Huawei P30 leak hints at an oxymoronic design

Huawei P30 leak hints at an oxymoronic design

Beautifully unsettling. That may be one of the first reactions some might have with a new leak that shows what might be Huawei's response to the Samsung Galaxy S10. Continuing the successful design of its early 2018 predecessor, the Huawei P30 Pro still seems to exude the elegance of the P20 Pro, with a smaller notch even. But while it's not terribly unattractive, the smartphone's key feature might demonstrate the almost unbelievable extents smartphone makers will go to cram more cameras into their small handsets.

The end of the year is at hand and while that means a lot of things for many people, for those in the tech and mobile industry, it means the start of two months of nonstop marketing and hype.
