We’ve time and again heard that OnePlus is working on a "lite" model to accompany its main flagship line. Last year's rumored 8 Lite ended up launching as the Nord, but the company hasn't given up on the idea. It seems to be trying its hand at a proper Lite phone, likely as part of its main flagship line, as a new report suggests that the OnePlus 9 Lite is indeed on the way... but only for two countries in Asia.
Pretty much everything about the Galaxy S21 series has been leaked at this point short of a full announcement... and now, a full press release has been leaked. Samsung Germany accidentally posted the Galaxy S21 Ultra's announcement earlier today; it's since been deleted, but as we all know, truly erasing something from the Internet is next to impossible.
We're already well-acquainted with the Samsung Galaxy S21 series by now. We know pretty much everything about the phones — right from the next-gen hardware and software to pricing and availability. The leaks are still coming in, though, and the latest one gives us a look at all the colorways that we will see on Samsung's upcoming flagships.
With all of the rumors and leaks we've heard about the Galaxy S21 family, there's little left to the imagination at this point. That said, if you wanted to see what Samsung thinks are the most highlight-worthy features of its new flagships, you're in luck; Roland Quandt of WinFuture has posted a few of Samsung's marketing images for your perusal.
Rumors have swirled for the last few weeks regarding materials in Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S21, claiming that some of the models may use plastic materials in place of glass, as Samsung did for last year's Note20 and Galaxy S20 FE. According to noted leaker Roland Quandt (and confirmed by Android Police's Max Weinbach), the smaller Galaxy S21 will have a polycarbonate plastic back.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 family is only a week away from being officially announced. However, there's not much to look forward to in that a lot of information about the upcoming flagships has already been leaked — everything from the key hardware changes to the new software features. As it turns out, you won't even have to wait for the official announcement to find out when the phones will be available to purchase.
Samsung joined the high refresh rate bandwagon last year with the Galaxy S20 line, but some users found the implementation rather limiting as going for 120Hz capped the resolution at FHD+. The Korean smartphone maker could finally do away with that restriction with the upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Motorola's Moto G lineup has been creeping up in price and features for a while now, and last year, the company tried something different. Moto released two G phones in the United States (and some other regions), the G Power and G Stylus. The latter was equipped with a passive stylus, making it a competitor against the LG Stylo series, and now Motorola is working on a super-sized sequel.
