Apple's newest batch of iPhones haven't even begun shipping out yet, but we're already onto talking about the next releases in Apple's product lineup. A new image featuring a final mockup of the next iPad has leaked out, and while it only shows the back of the device, there's still plenty we can glean from it. It seems, for instance, that the next iPad will have something in common with the iPhone 11 Pro.

LG G Pad 5 might be an embarrassing return to the tablet market

LG G Pad 5 might be an embarrassing return to the tablet market

Although the Android tablet market has shrunken considerably, there are still quite a few OEMs making slates. Samsung is perhaps the most prolific among them, followed by Huawei and, to some extent, Amazon with its Fire tablets. LG was once part of that group but has become silent of late. According to leaks, it seems like the G Pad will be making a comeback but, based on that unofficial information, it might be arguable whether LG should have even made such a tablet at all.

He suggested that the 9.7-inch iPad is the first iPad "60% of people" use. Today Apple revealed a slightly larger device so that those people can ramp up - the 7th-gen iPad.

Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Watch Active 2, Galaxy A phones launch in the US

IFA 2019 has just begun in Europe but over in the US another kind of wave is starting courtesy of Samsung. No, not the wave that has been started by the incessant opening and closing of its re-launching Galaxy Fold phones, since that's not due to arrive until another "few" weeks. Instead, Samsung is trying to kickstart the school season and get ahead of holiday shopping by revealing when its latest Galaxy devices will hit stores starting today.

Galaxy Tab Active Pro brings Samsung DeX to rugged 10-inch slate

Galaxy Tab Active Pro brings Samsung DeX to rugged 10-inch slate

It seems that Samsung is truly invested in its DeX platform (whether or not Linux on DeX is a passing fad is a different question). Not only has it supported and improved the feature for almost three years now, it has also started branching it out to more devices and deployments, including police car computers. Now it is bringing that same productivity-oriented feature to where it might matter the most, the rugged Galaxy Tab Active Pro tablet.

Microsoft Dual Screen Surface: what it needs to succeed

Microsoft Dual Screen Surface: what it needs to succeed

Just as everyone is preparing for the IFA 2019 craze next week, Microsoft dropped what may be a bombshell that will have fans and tech pundits thinking about the company all the way to October. There was no mention, not even a hint, of such a device, the Microsoft Courier's spirit once again haunts the Internet rumor mill.

The time might be right, with all the pieces in place for the dual-screen Microsoft device to make its glorious but terribly long-overdue arrival. But if Microsoft doesn't make sure it checks the right boxes, it might end up with more egg in its face than Samsung with the initial Galaxy Fold.

iPad Pro to sport 3D Time-of-Flight camera even before iPhones do

iPad Pro to sport 3D Time-of-Flight camera even before iPhones do

Samsung's newest Galaxy Tab S6 may seem unique for having two cameras, one of which is has a wide-angle lens, but it's hardly the first tablet to have more than one sensor on its back. Google's Project Tango tablet had a handful of sensors, all of which work in concert to give the device "AR eyes". It seems that Apple will be taking a similar path but with a simpler and less expensive solution, a single 3D Time-of-Flight sensor for its next iPad Pro.

TCL is making a foldable tablet under its own name

You may no longer remember or even consider TCL as a smartphone maker. Once upon a time, the company better known for its TVs did put out rather forgettable handsets in the market. Of late, its name gets mentioned in smartphone news as the actual hands behind the most recent Alcatel and BlackBerry phones. Next year, however, TCL might be back in action with no less than five mobile devices, one of which is a tablet that folds into a smartphone and vice versa.
