Motorola G7 brings back big battery phone in 2019

This week the folks at Motorola had a bit of a spill in the form of multiple sorts of G7. That's the company's most popular smartphone line - or at least it was, back when the original Moto G was the company's first mega-hit in the low-to-midrange market for smartphones. Back when the original Moto G was both extremely cheap and reasonably powerful - and it didn't look half bad, either.

An image of the OnePlus 6T appeared on our desk this afternoon complete with an on-brand OnePlus Red exterior.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now around a month out from release - give or take a couple weeks. Now's the time we take a peek at what we know - and how that stacks up against the competition.

LG G7 release details leak: Date with big specs

Today we're having a peek at the LG G7 ThinQ, a sort-of rebranding of the LG G lineup, but still in the G6 swing of things. To be clear - it would appear as though LG's latest smartphone won't be significantly different from its predecessors with any regard to its newly donned "ThinQ" branding. That's just a move that's being made to tie the phone in closer with the rest of the products LG has available - in the smart home, appliances, wash machines, and whatnot.

Google Pixel VS Nexus : key details of the not-quite-dead

Upon hearing that the "Nexus" smartphone line would be replaced by Google Pixel, many developers and hardcore Android fans were suitably distressed. Since the time the rumor broke, it's become a bit clearer what Google will be doing - or will almost certainly be doing. Instead of tossing the successful model that is the Nexus smartphone and tablet lineup aside, Google has been tipped to be working with both Nexus and Pixel devices. The Nexus will represent the same "beacon of basic greatness" it always has, while Pixel will play a much more curated and closely controlled roll in Google's future.

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.
