With just one week to go before Apple takes the wraps off of its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, leaks and rumors are really starting to hit high gear. This morning we saw one of the biggest leaks yet, and it was the one we’ve been waiting for, a possible confirmation that Apple will double the storage capacity in each of its new iPhone models. If the leak pans out, Apple’s entry-level iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will feature 32GB of storage, the middle models will have 128GB of storage and high-end iPhone buyers will enjoy 256GB of space.

Now, a leaked video appears to show a functional iPhone 7 Plus on video for the first time ever. More →

You should be excited that Apple’s iPhone 7 is killing the headphone jack

Plenty of people are complaining about Apple’s rumored decision to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 even before the device is announced. And there’s no question at all that the complaining will continue after the new iPhones debut next week. But the move makes perfect sense to anyone who has been following Apple’s iPhone closely. Now, a new Apple innovation further reinforces the idea that we should be extremely excited to see the 3.5mm headphone jack go away. More →

Moto True Zoom Release Date

This is the greatest smartphone accessory I’ve ever used

This is the greatest smartphone accessory I’ve ever used

By about 5 hours ago.

Once upon a time, Samsung had an idea. Smartphones had made it so that everyone carried a camera with them everywhere they went, and those camera offered pretty decent quality. There was only so much camera tech that could be stuffed into a slim phone, though. So why not make a smartphone the size of a dedicated camera that packs the quality and features of a point and shoot cam?

This was back in 2013 when Samsung was throwing spaghetti at the wall by the bucket, and the result was the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Despite its killer optics and 16-megapixel resolution, the phone wasn’t terribly popular since it was so big and bulky. Samsung released an updated version the following year called the Galaxy K Zoom, but the experiment ended there.

Samsung’s idea was a good one — make a smartphone with a camera that’s just as good as a dedicated point and shoot camera — but the execution wasn’t there. No one wants a phone that thick in their pocket at all times. Fast-forward to 2016, however, and it’s finally time to see this great idea take shape the right way. Meet the Hasselblad 4116 True Zoom Moto Mod. More →

Lenovo Yoga Book Hands On

Hands on: Lenovo’s new Yoga Book is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before

Hands on: Lenovo’s new Yoga Book is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before

By about 5 hours ago.

Lenovo hasn’t gotten as much credit as it should be getting lately for innovating. The company’s new Moto Z and Moto Z Force are two of the sleekest new smartphones of the year so far, but they also feature what is almost certainly the most innovative new hardware feature we’ve seen on a smartphone this year. Dubbed Moto Mods, the phones support modular attachments that snap on and off to expand the phones’ capabilities in any number of different directions.

But smartphones were just the start for Lenovo this year. On Wednesday, the company announced the new Yoga Book, a 2-in-1 hybrid device that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. More →

Moto Z Play Release Date

Moto Z Play Droid hands on: 35% less expensive, 100% more headphone jack

Moto Z Play Droid hands on: 35% less expensive, 100% more headphone jack

By about 5 hours ago.

When all is said and done, I think that Lenovo’s Moto Z family of smartphones will end up being the most surprising and underrated handsets of 2016. There was some chatter in the rumor mill ahead of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force announcement back in July, but no one really expected the new phones to be quite as exciting as they are. The Z is the slimmest flagship smartphone in the world, the Z Force is shatter-proof, and both phones feature a stunning design along with Lenovo’s smart new Moto Mods system.

Lenovo’s new phones aren’t as widely discussed as rival models for a few reasons. One is that Lenovo simply doesn’t market them as much as companies like Samsung and Apple market their smartphones. Another is that for the time being, they’re only available to Verizon subscribers. They are absolutely worthy of your attention though, and now there’s a third member of the Moto Z family: Meet the Moto Z Play Droid. More →

Report leaks early details on new iPhone 8 with curved OLED screen

Next year’s new iPhone will feature the massive redesign that some Apple fans wanted this year, and more reports indicate that Apple’s next phone – or at least one version of it – will feature a curved display just like Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge or Galaxy Note 7. Apple will, therefore, not be the first company to make handsets with curved screens, but next year’s iPhone 8 is already generating plenty of excitement.

News from Asia indicates that work on the next iPhones has already started, and several companies are getting ready to enter Apple’s supply chain for the new handset. More →

Following reports of fires, Samsung confirms Galaxy Note 7 shipments halted

Samsung was in such a hurry to launch the Galaxy Note 7 well ahead of its expected debut, and to beat Apple’s iPhone 7 to market, that it may have missed a thing or two during quality testing. The company on Wednesday confirmed that it had to delay shipments of the phone so it can perform additional tests. The report follows a story from Korea that said the recent Galaxy Note 7 explosions are what convinced Samsung to halt shipments. More →

One week from today, Apple fans. One. Week. Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will finally become a reality next Wednesday when Apple unveils them during its big press conference in California. We’ll obviously be covering the event live on September 7th, but most of what’s announced won’t come as much of a surprise to eager iPhone fans who have had their eyes glued to the rumor mill over these past few months.

Now, the latest evidence that Apple will indeed be doubling the available storage in its new iPhone models comes directly from Apple. More →

In just a few days, Apple will unveil the most anticipated smartphones of the year. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus should offer almost the same design as their previous two predecessors.

Some of the new features include more built-in storage, an upgraded camera experience, and a bold move towards the future.

Google Nexus 2016 Google Phones

Google is killing the Nexus line and vanilla Android with it

Google is killing the Nexus line and vanilla Android with it

This isn’t the first time when we hear such rumblings, but 2016 might mark the first year when Google doesn’t come out with a new generation of Nexus devices. That doesn’t mean Google decided all of a sudden that it doesn’t need a vessel to demo its newest mobile innovation. But the company is simply killing the Nexus branding, only to replace it with a new product family, one that would put Google front and center. But the worst thing about it seems to be that vanilla Android is dying alongside Nexus marketing. More →

Is the iPhone 7 going after DSLRs?

Is the iPhone 7 going after DSLRs?

What is Apple trying to say with the image on its official media invite for the iPhone 7 event? The company usually hides clues in all its media invitations, which everyone then tries to decipher. We’ve seen a few example of silly interpretations, but there’s also one that makes a lot of sense. If it’s accurate, the interpretation suggests that Apple has big plans of its new iPhones this year.
