Appallingly low-res images of the Pixel 4a leak in private Facebook group

Considering how extensively the Pixel 4 leaked before it was introduced last year, it's quite a miracle that we don't know all that much about its budget sister model yet, rumored to be released in May during Google I/O. It looks like that's bound to change, as some images have surfaced on Twitter and Reddit via a private Facebook group that give us a first low-res, pixelated look at a purported Pixel 4a — though we should take these images with a healthy dose of skepticism.

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Lite have been on our radar for months, but questions are still hanging about further specifics, including the dreaded price range.

Supposed Moto G8 Power Lite leaks, has one fewer camera than G8 Power

Motorola's newest batch of Moto G phones have yet to hit the market, but at least we do know exactly what the Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power have in store for us when they finally go on sale. One of the newest unknowns to apparently leak, however, is a little something called the Moto G8 Power Lite. And, besides a few pictures, we don't know much about it.

Early Huawei P40 prototype appears in hands-on video showing familiar rear design

Huawei is coming out with its next P-series flagships later this month, even though it still doesn’t have access to Google apps following the US-China trade war. While we already had a pretty good idea what the P40 and P40 Pro will look like based on a few leaks from reliable sources, the former recently made an appearance in a hands-on video.

It looks like Google Duo's getting ready to transcribe audio and video messages

Google is on a rampage to transcribe anything that generates speech on its Android platform in real-time. For most Android phones, users can transcribe voice memos with Live Transcribe. Pixels, though, can get system-wide transcription with Live Caption. So, where's the next step forward? Maybe it's with Duo calls.

Leaked Surface Duo demo videos show off 'peeking' notifications UI

When it comes to the software on smartphones with folding displays (or, at least, a display field that can close in on itself), manufacturers are still out there trying to figure out the usability picture. Microsoft is faced with that very challenge right now as it continues developing its Android-powered dual-screen mobile device, the Surface Duo — and we might have just gotten a peek at a trick up its sleeve.

LG V60 leak shows off quad-cameras, 5,000mAh battery, and more (Update: New render)

Traditionally, LG's spring release cycle has been based around the G-series phones. However, signs increasingly point to LG moving the V-series to the spring slot. A new leak from Evan "evleaks" Blass shows the unannounced V60 ThinQ as a translucent render. LG appears to be packing in the cameras and battery capacity this time.

Twitter leak shows how volunteer fact-checking process could work

With political and societal upheaval seemingly on the daily global agenda, information and misinformation travels fast and one of the most prominent platforms where that occurs is Twitter. Where it was previously hesitant to install fact-checking guardrails to reduce the impact of intellectually harmful content, the company recently began labeling certain videos posted to tweets as deceptively manipulated. Soon, according to a leaked demonstration, it could take another step.

TCL prototype leak appears to reveal phone with slide-out screen

Folding phones are so hot right now, but there are still many Android OEMs that haven't taken a crack at the idea. TCL showed off an early prototype of a Galaxy Fold-like device at CES earlier this year, and now it looks like the company might be working on something much different.

Galaxy S20 Ultra flaunts its massive camera bump in first real-world photos (Update: More pics and official video)

Last year, all smartphone manufacturers got into a single room and elected a unified rear-facing camera design for smartphones: a rectangular bump on the top left. That's the only logical explanation for the slew of similar-looking devices we've seen in recent months, be it the iPhone 11, Pixel 4, Galaxy Note10 and S10 Lite, or others. We've known for a while that Samsung's upcoming flagships will follow the same trend and now we're getting further proof thanks to real-life images of the S20 Ultra and S20+.
