BlackBerry's upcoming fullscreen Krypton shows its carbon fiber patterned back

The BlackBerry Krypton has been popping up on the rumor mill for a few months, but today we get our first look at what could be the device's back. As you can see from the image above, it has a carbon fiber patterned backside with a shiny BlackBerry logo. The camera has one LED flash though, as opposed to the dual LED on the KEYone.

According to previous rumors and leaks, the Krypton will be the DTEK50/60's successor with a fullscreen display and no QWERTY, unlike the KEYone. It should have a 16:9 1920 × 1080 display, a Snapdragon 625 or 626, 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint reader integrated in the home button, and a rather large 4,000mAh battery.

ZTE and AT&T reportedly have a $650 Snapdragon 820-powered foldable dual-screen tablet called Axon Multy in the works

Tablets haven't been doing so well in recent years, but companies like Apple, Samsung, and ASUS are still churning them out. ZTE, however, seems to be taking a slightly different approach. According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) of VentureBeat, the Chinese OEM is working on a foldable 6.8" tablet with some fairly high-end specs. But with all this fancy tech will come a high price tag: $650, to be exact.

Exclusive: Google plans to launch a new Chromebook Pixel, mini version of Google Home alongside new phones

According to a source familiar with the company's plans, Google will launch not just two new Google Pixel phones at a hardware event this fall, but an all-new Pixel-branded Chromebook - the first since the 2015 Chromebook Pixel pictured above - as well as a miniaturized version of its Google Home smart speaker.

At this time, we don't have any specifications for this laptop. However, it seems likely that it was born out of Google's mysterious Project Bison, which we exclusively detailed last year (and, at the time, was scheduled for a Q3 2017 launch).

Renders of the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL confirm small bezels, camera bump, and no 3.5mm jack

OnLeaks is at it again. After revealing renders of the LG V30 a couple of weeks ago, the leakster has collaborated with MySmartPrice one more time to publish 3D renders of the most anticipated phone of this fall. No, not the Note 8, silly. Not the iPhone 8 either. We're on Android Police, dammit, it's the Pixel 2! Or at least that's the name the device is being called, though no one is 100% sure of the name yet.

We already know a little about the Pixel 2 and its bigger brother, the Pixel 2 XL. In June, we heard some rumored specs like the two devices' screen sizes (4.95" and 5.99", respectively), 4GB RAM, 64GB and 128GB storage, stereo speakers, and lack of 3.5mm headphone jack.
