Moto G10 could finally be the Motorola flagship we’ve been waiting for

If the rumors are correct, Motorola's next flagship smartphone might not be able to compete with other early 2021 contenders. That won't mean, however, that it won't be able to top what Motorola has offered so far. If the company's own hints at Qualcomm's recent Snapdragon Summit is to be taken at face value, it could even be Motorola's biggest attempt at a flagship experience yet. Even more surprising, however, is its all but certain confirmation that this phone will actually be part of its Moto G series.

MediaTek MT6893 might be on par with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

MediaTek MT6893 might be on par with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

MediaTek still has a large share of the mass-market smartphone segment, primarily because of its more accessible price tag for its processors on that tier. It has recently set its guns higher, aiming for mid-tier and high-end devices with its 5G-enabled line of Dimensity chips, but it hasn't exactly reached performance figures that can be considered comparable to the top contender in that space. That could slowly be changing if these leaked benchmarks for an upcoming MediaTek flagship is accurate, showing it might finally be catching up to Qualcomm.

Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Just when you thought Samsung's Exynos chips have finally caught a break, new data allegedly puts its back in its place. As far as the Galaxy S21 is concerned, that is. There is still little concrete evidence as to which processors Samsung's early 2021 flagship will be running on but, if it keeps the status quo, there might again be some disgruntled consumers who will have to settle for a model that underperforms a different variant, simply because of where they live.

LG smartphones reportedly staying away from Snapdragon 875

LG smartphones reportedly staying away from Snapdragon 875

LG launched three high-profile phones this year but, if you look closely and get past the marketing language, only one of them can really be considered the company's 2020 premium flagship. While the LG V60 ThinQ 5G carried a Snapdragon 865, both the LG Velvet (except for one variant) and the newer and stranger LG Wing did not. The two suck with the latest 5G-capable Snapdragon 7-series chipset and now it seems that this will also be LG's strategy for early 2021.

Qualcomm, ASUS reportedly making a new brand of gaming phone

While Razer may have been the one to start it but other manufacturers have arguably taken the gaming smartphone market where it left off. Among these, ASUS' ROG Phones maybe some of the top choices, both in features and especially in price. There's no indication of it slowing down anytime soon and, in fact, might be on the verge of releasing yet another line of gaming smartphones, but this time bearing the name of the maker of the processors that power it all.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G could help send 5G mainstream

Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G could help send 5G mainstream

Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 750G, which appears to be the successor to the 730G with a major upgrade: 5G support. The 750G will take its place alongside Qualcomm's other 5G-capable 700-series SoCs, and given the numbering, it'll probably be a little less powerful than other chips in the series. Still, Qualcomm is touting some fairly big improvements over the 730G, so the 750G should be a pretty capable SoC.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

It's not unusual for Samsung to launch a "lite" version of its flagship models, although the name has varied from time to time. Long rumored to be in the works, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or FE might be close to finally launching and when it does, it might prove to be controversial to some of Samsung's customers. While the phone is definitely "Lite" in some aspects, there are also some specs that put it above the more expensive base Galaxy Note 20 model.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series to get 5G capability next year

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 series to get 5G capability next year

Qualcomm may have the lion's share of the smartphone processor market but there is still one segment that it doesn't have a firm grasp on. On the lower and budget tiers, MediaTek's processors are often the go-to solutions, often because of their affordability rather than their features. With MediaTek aggressively pushing its 5G-capable Dimensity processors on high and middle tiers, Qualcomm is now trying to hit where it hurts by promising a 5G Snapdragon 400 series chip next year.
