Leaked Pixel 4a benchmarks show significant performance gains over last year's Pixel 3a

The most substantial Pixel 4a leak we've seen so far came in the form of a video review from Cuban site TechnoLike Plus, and the same source has released a new video on YouTube with performance benchmarks. Thankfully, the 4a compares favorably with the 3a and other recent Pixels, so we can expect a solid experience when the new phone eventually launches.

Samsung could be working on a Lite variant of the Galaxy Fold

Samsung has so far launched a pair of foldable phones, both with sky-high prices. While as a brand, it can feel nice to have a couple ultra-premium phones on your store shelves that are effectively reserved for your most well-to-do customers, even a fancy folding phone is going to need a sensibly priced model in order to drive real volumes. It looks like Samsung may be catching on to that, as the company's rumored to be working on a cheaper variant of its $2,000 Galaxy Fold.

Lenovo's first gaming phone leaks with a pop-up camera... on the side

Lenovo is mostly known for its PCs and laptops, and the company even has a gaming subdivision for that market going by Lenovo Legion. It looks like the manufacturer wants to capitalize on that name for its first gaming smartphone. As XDA Developers reports, Lenovo is working on a handset called "Legion Gaming Phone" with high-end hardware, improved thermals, two USB-C ports, and a pop-up camera on the side.

Probable Pixel 4a shipping date leaked by German carrier

We've already heard almost everything there is to hear about the Pixel 4a except for a rather important detail: When exactly will it be available for purchase? While we've assumed that Google planned on introducing the phone during its (now canceled) I/O conference in May, we've got some more evidence that it's indeed launching next month: German Caschys Blog got to see some internal Vodafone Germany documents stating the phone will be available through the carrier starting May 22.

An unnamed Samsung phone with a pop-up camera just leaked

Last year, Samsung announced the incredibly cool but completely over-engineered Galaxy A80 with a both swiveling and sliding camera to stand out among the crowd of regular pop-up setups. While most manufacturers have decided to forgo all of these moving parts in favor of hole-punch displays or small notches, Samsung seems to think it might be a good idea to work on a regular pop-up camera phone of its own, according to @OnLeaks and Pigtou.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 rumors hint at big upgrades

The first folding-screen Galaxy got off to a rough start when many units started failing left and right, halting its retail release for several months. It didn't turn out to be a smash hit even later, mainly due to its sky-high pricing. Samsung’s reincarnated flip phone for 2020 wasn’t a true successor to the Galaxy Fold, but it did help iron out some of the initial design complications and helped make foldables more affordable. Now a new report claims that the second generation of Samsung's ultra-premium foldable would take cues from both the Galaxy Z Flip and the recent S20 line.
