Spec leak shows exactly how the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G outclasses other S20 models

The tidal waves of Galaxy S20 leaks continue to roll in. It's been high season for leaks bloggers like Max Weinbach, who we've just had on the Android Police Podcast. For Ishan Agarwal, who, along with India's MySmartPrice, is responsible for the latest spec dump on the S20 5G, S20+ 5G, and S20 Ultra 5G models that will be sold in many parts of Europe and Asia, this season just got a bit higher.

Potential Pixel 4a codename leaks create more confusion than ever around the phone

A report from XDA Developers today cites the existence of three codenames potentially related to Google's upcoming affordable smartphones (or phone), and evidence discovered alongside those names paints a more confusing picture of the situation than ever. The long and short of it: there could be two Pixel 4a variants after all, and one of them could support 5G.

According to XDA, the three codenames of note are sunfish, redfin, and bramble. Sunfish is allegedly equipped with a Snapdragon 730, a 4G-only Qualcomm chipset for mid-range phones. This makes sense: the Snapdragon 730 is the logical successor to the Snapdragon 670 found in the Pixel 3a and 3a XL, and probably carries a pretty similar price tag.

New Huawei P40 render reveals dual selfie cameras in a Samsung-style hole-punch (Update: P40 Pro, colors)

The release of the Huawei P40 shouldn't be too far away, and as such, it's time for the leaks to get into full swing. Back in December, we got a vague look at what the new device may look like, but the dark render kept much of the phone hidden. Now, thanks to 91 Mobile, we may be looking at the P40 in all its glory.

Leaks suggest no ANC for new Galaxy Buds+ but at least a larger battery (Updated)

Samsung surprised quite a few of us with the Galaxy Buds that launched at the same time as the Galaxy S10 smartphone lineup — not only were they affordable but they sounded pretty decent too (as I detailed in my review). Details about a follow up are now starting to emerge, and it sounds like they'll come with in-vogue active noise cancellation tech.

Mother of god: Rumor claims Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will have up to 16GB of RAM

XDA's Max Weinbach has been on a roll for the last few days, trickling out a nearly continuous stream of details surrounding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S20 phones. In addition to showing off the very first photos of the Galaxy S20+ 5G in the wild, he's also dropping nitty-gritty details regarding specs and software. Among the most ridiculous numbers revealed so far is the fact that the higher-end Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G will come in a version with a frankly absurd 16GB of RAM — that's probably more than your laptop.

The first real-world images of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy-series have landed, thanks to the folks at XDA Developers and noted Samsung leaker Max Weinbach. In addition to confirming a more sane camera layout (in a slightly different configuration compared to previous leaks), these photos also confirm that Samsung plans on skipping a whole lot of numbers with its next flagships, jumping straight to the "Galaxy S20" name.

CAD renders of some Xperia 5 Plus have been published on Slashleaks. The device looks almost identical to its smaller sibling but comes with a bigger screen and a headphone jack.

The OnePlus 8 Lite could be coming, and here's what it looks like (Update: Live pics, third camera)

The coming year may mark a return of OnePlus-branded mid-range phones after nearly four years of inactivity, according to a new leak.

The handset takes design cues from the OnePlus 8 and the 8 Pro that surfaced in similar renders in October.
