Huawei on Monday announced its Nova 4 smartphone with a full front display that is similar looking to Samsung's Infinity-O screen found on its recently launched Galaxy A8s (and upcoming Galaxy S10). Like Samsung's handset, the Nova 4 ditches the bezel and sports a punch-hole design in the upper-left corner for the... Read more...
If owning an actual McLaren is out of your budget, then perhaps a OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition smartphone is more up your alley. It's certainly more affordable than an actual McLaren—the asking price is $699, versus the British automaker's recently announced 720S Spider, a sexy convertible that starts at... Read more...
For a short period of time, it appeared as though OnePlus had scored a big victory in the smartphone wars, having apparently negotiated a deal to be the first phone maker to implement Qualcomm's new flagship Snapdragon 855 processor into an upcoming handset. OnePlus was to be the first to feature the new chip, the... Read more...
Earlier this year we took a detailed look at the OnePlus 6 and determined it was one of the best values in Android flagship smartphones on the market. The OP6 has a beautiful, large display, a clean near-stock Android setup and great performance with 6GB or 8GB RAM standard at price points of $529 and $579... Read more...
Another week is underway, and that means another round of smartphone rumors. Huawei and its upcoming Nova 4 handset is once again at the center of it all. The Nova 4 is garnering attention in part because it replaces the traditional bezel and, more recently, the notched design that has become popular, with a circular... Read more...
Smartphone makers are starting to experiment with new designs in order to stand out from the crowd, and we've seen some interesting concepts emerge. One of them is Samsung's upcoming folding phone—it turns into a tablet when opened. Vivo, meanwhile, seems to be readying a new smartphone with two displays, one on the... Read more...
Smartphone makers are starting to crank out purpose-built gaming phones, and the latest to join the fray is Nubia, a sub-brand of ZTE, one of China's leading telecom equipment manufacturers. Nubia's new Red Magic Mars is a high-end handset powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and up to 10GB of RAM, which is... Read more...
A relatively recent trend in the smartphone space is to implement dual cameras on the backside of the handset, which enables some nifty depth-of-field effects through hardware (rather than software alone). Some phones even wield four rear cameras, like Huawei's Mate 20 Pro. Well, LG apparently has aspirations of... Read more...
Samsung may be headed towards a record quarterly profit, as its recent third quarter guidance indicates, but its smartphone shipments are down. According to data released by International Data Corporation (IDC), Samsung had a "challenging" quarter in which its smartphone shipments declined 13.4 percent to 72.2 million... Read more...
Razer may have popularized the idea of an Android phone built primarily for gaming with features to match (such as a fast 120Hz display), but it is no longer the only one cranking these kinds of handsets out. A few others have joined in the fun. More companies will be jumping on the bandwagon too, including Samsung... Read more...
It used to be that nothing was certain but death and taxes, to quote Benjamin Franklin (who wasn't actually the first to point this out, but is probably best known for the phrase). Well, we can add to that short list. In today's landscape, certainties include death, taxes, and display notches on a growing number of... Read more...
Huawei is bringing its big and budget-minded Honor 8X smartphone to the United States after having launched the handset in China a few weeks ago. The pitch from Huawei is that the Honor 8X offers "all-around flagship features at an unrivaled price," and that begins with a premium 6.5-inch FullView display with a 91... Read more...
At this point, we pretty know what the unreleased OnePlus 6T looks like, unless all of the leaked images up to now have been fake. We doubt that's the case. Lest anyone need one more reminder of the upcoming phone's design, yet more official looking press renders have found their way to the web, showing the OnePlus 6T from the front, back, Read more...
Razer is going to be releasing another smartphone built for gaming, one that will presumably look similar to the company's first generation Razer Phone, but with upgraded hardware and features. However, it doesn't look like Razer will be upgrading the second-gen handset with a 3.5mm audio jack, and feature that isn't... Read more...
It doesn't matter how many times we say this—and we've said it a lot—companies just don't understand there are no mulligans on the Internet. Word to the wise, if you post something online, you can't take it back. We bring this up because Nokia, for a brief blip in time, teased a new gaming phone on its Twitter account... Read more...
Razer is best known for its PC gaming peripherals, especially its lineup of mice, but has expanded its portfolio over the years to include several different types of products. One of those is the Razer Phone, an Android phone built specifically for gaming. Razer recently confirmed its working on a Razer Phone 2, and a... Read more...
Earlier this month, we heard from IDC regarding global smartphone sales for Q2 2018.

Oppo's next flagship phone could potentially end up with more RAM than many mainstream PCs, or at least the ones that ship with 4GB or 8GB of system memory. The upcoming R17 might have them beat with a whopping 10GB of RAM. That would be the most amount of RAM of any smartphone date, even those by the biggest... Read more...
Huawei might beat Samsung to the punch with the first retail folding smartphone.

Privacy advocates are celebrating a Supreme Court ruling that bans law enforcement from tracking a user's cellphone location without first obtaining a warranty.

LG debuted the G7 ThinQ in early May and certainly turned some heads with the promise of a 1000 nits capable display, an AI-powered camera, and its Boombox Speaker features.
