With I/O just around the corner, we're reaching a fever pitch on Google leaks. Earlier this week, we saw what could very well be the Pixel 6, and now, we've caught an eyeful of Android 12 in motion — and it looks like it could be Android's biggest visual overhaul in years.
Based on some details leaked today, Instagram may be working on one of its most requested features: The ability to make posts from your desktop's browser. The new feature is being tested internally and likely under active development, but there are a handful of images showing what it currently looks like in action.
Samsung sure knows how to give phone buyers what they want, whether we're talking about high-end foldable phones that capture the imagination of shoppers with money to burn, or well-executed budget models that still offer big screens and premium functionality while costing just a fraction of flagships. Today we're checking our what could be one of the next models to join the company's more wallet-friendly offerings, with new leaks detailing what we can expect from the upcoming Galaxy A22.
Huawei may not be selling its phones in the United States again anytime soon, but it has yet to throw in the towel on Android phones. Over the last several months, we've seen several leaks from the company that put its next flagship phone on full display. Although we still don't know when the successor to last year's P40 series might arrive, a new leak gives us some hints about what we can expect from the device — and its enormous camera bump.
Asus is still very much an also-ran in the smartphone world, but that gives it the space to try some unconventional designs that many find appealing. Take, for example, the Zenfone 6 and later, which elegantly solves the aesthetic issue of the notch by making its rear camera module flip around to the front when needed. Personally, I think it makes the Zenfone series some of the best-looking Android hardware there is. Asus isn't quite done with this design yet, according to a newly-leaked render of the unannounced ZenFone 8 Flip.
Last month we saw leaks and then a formal announcement of the Galaxy Quantum2. It's only available in South Korea, and if it's anything like the previous Samsung "Quantum" phone, that's likely to remain so. But the phone's model number is SM-A826S, indicating that a more general Galaxy A82 might make its way to international markets. Today we've seen the first evidence of that.
Well that didn't take long. After posting semi-official confirmation of the upcoming budget-priced Pixel Buds earlier today in Germany, Google just tweeted it out on the official @Android Twitter account with the image above. A few minutes later, the tweet was deleted.
It wouldn't be new hardware from Google without a constant series of escalating leaks. We've known for a while now that a new set of Pixel Buds were in the works, with a budget-friendly price in mind. A promotional email mixup even showed us the new "Forest Green" color before any actual announcement has taken place. Well, you can check another rumor off the list: it seems like Google's next Pixel Buds have a name locked in.
A handful of renders and what is claimed to be a promotional video for Samsung's upcoming foldables have been circulating today, ostensibly showing off the Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. While we remain a little skeptical and cannot corroborate the details with our own sources, a handful of known leakers are convinced, and a few key details do jibe with what we would expect. Still, some design details are a little unusual, so take the news with an appropriate (if not massive) dose of salt.
