Galaxy Note10 headphone dongle leaks, looks exactly as you'd imagine

The Galaxy Note10 is almost certain to be the first generation in the series to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. We've been told by our sources that Samsung will include a pair of AKG USB-C earbuds with every purchase to make up for the loss. It's also been said that dongles could also be in play here and, thanks to a leak, we're able to eye out what that dongle looks like.

Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch leaks with Alexa functionality and OLED screen

Fitbit was huge in fitness trackers before the smartwatch fad, so it was a natural evolution for the company to add a few more features and launch a smartwatch. It started with the Ionic and then released the Versa, which was a better watch. Our friend Evan "evleaks" Blass has images of the upcoming Versa 2, and it has at least one major surprise: a real voice assistant.

[Update: Out of beta] IFTTT trades functionality for simplicity with new minimalist Android app

IFTTT is one of my favorite services around, and what's great about it is that once you've set up everything, you even forget it exists. For instance, I'm a big Wunderlist fan, and I don't want to switch to another provider to manage my to-do lists. Thanks to IFTTT, I've connected it to my Google Assistant so that my smart speaker can add my grocery items directly into my list. In fact, IFTTT is so transparent that you rarely need to use the app, unless you're setting up a new applet or checking your activity log. Nevertheless, the company isn't neglecting its users and is working on completely revamping its Android app with an interface that looks much smoother, but that's also a lot less functional.

Leak claims new phone from Vivo will have 'over 100%' screen-to-body ratio

Chinese manufacturer Vivo likes to put out a concept product every so often to push its vision of what a top-of-the-line smartphone should be. Of course, there are costly operational limitations in place as to why its APEX and NEX series aren't being mass-produced, but at least with these little boasts, we get a peek into what our mobile computing future might be. One such future has apparently been leaked out and it tells of a device with screen-to-body ratio of "over 100%" — but don't get too excited about that claim.

Huawei reportedly helped build North Korea's wireless network and everyone's freaking out

Beyond the political luggage generated in the midst of the protracted U.S.-China trade dispute, the American import ban that Huawei has to deal with is laden with doubt from tech critics who chide D.C. with inhibiting innovation in mobile phones. Lest we forget, though, that the Department of Justice is pursuing the Chinese tech behemoth for stealing trade secrets and fraud in relation to Iran sanctions breaches. Now, we're learning of leaked documents that tie Huawei to business conducted in another adversarial country: North Korea.

Curious cutout on new Pixel 4 leak raises questions

Two sets of images related to the upcoming Pixel 4 have appeared today. In addition to the earlier renders that showed off the smaller Pixel 4 for the first time (that we know of), noted leaker IceUniverse earlier tweeted out a pair of photos showing off what appears to be either the front-facing glass for the Pixel 4 and 4 XL or screen protectors for the two phones. Either way, a honkin' cutout on the right side of that now-familiar top bezel raises some questions — or potentially answers them when it comes to those "Face Authentication" details spotted in Android Q.

Today we're seeing the first detailed renders of the regular Pixel 4, and... it looks like the 4 XL.

'Android-powered' Nokia feature phone gets leaked, but it's probably running KaiOS

Google currently has two platforms for low-end phones. The company's own solution is Android Go, a watered-down version of Android designed for smartphones with 1GB or less of RAM. At the same time, it has partnered with Kai Technologies to bring Google services to feature phones running the KaiOS operating system. Images have surfaced of a reported Nokia feature phone running a lightweight Android build, but it's more likely that it's a KaiOS phone.
