Here's our first good look at Pixel Themes for Android 10

Back in April, our friends over at XDA found an unfinished app called Pixel Themes hidden in the then-new Android Q Beta 2. We didn't hear anything about this app for months, but now that a new app called ThemePicker's been uploaded to AOSP, we've gotten a better look at it.

Pixel 4 leaks bring fresh pics, new camera details: up to 8x zoom, new 'Motion Mode' for action shots, and improved Night Sight

There's no stopping the Pixel 4 leaks as we get closer to the phone's anticipated launch. The latest details, spotted by the folks at XDA Developers, show off a Pixel 4 with an "8x" element on the camera's UI — presumably indicating the telephoto lens might be able to reach up to an 8x zoom level compared to the primary camera (though we don't know how much of that could be digital zoom). 9to5Google is also reporting a new "Motion Mode" for capturing fast-paced action, and even better low-light performance via a souped-up Night Sight. Previous rumors that the phone would pack an "upgrade" to 6GB of RAM were also corroborated, and we get to see a new white color.

[Update: Official] 6 new Garmin smartwatches leak, including high-end Venu and hybrid Vivomove Luxe

In the world of sports-oriented activity trackers, Garmin reigns king. It bundles the regular step, sleep, and heart rate monitoring with a high level of detailed exercise tracking that Fitbit, Xiaomi, Huawei, and plenty of other competitors can't come close to. Garmin's line-up of smartwatches is also varied, offering a range of choices from the simple hybrid Vivomove HR to the LTE and music-capable Vivoactive 3. The company is working on follow-ups to these watches and now, thanks to WinFuture, we have our first look at them.

Sony spotted preparing to introduce Xperia 5 at IFA 2019

We've come to high season for high-pressure presentations in cavernous venues for little pieces of circuitry encased in glass, metal, and plastic again. IFA 2019 is just about underway in Berlin and tech companies are on rehearsals looking for the right words, notes, camera shots, and switches to hit. Unfortunately for Sony, someone in the control room flipped the wrong switch and briefly revealed the existence of the company's next big smartphone, the Xperia 5.

[Update: 7T Pro specs] Leaked OnePlus 7T specs reveal Snapdragon 855+ processor and 6.55-inch screen

Just a few days after we saw CAD-based renders of the OnePlus 7T, the device's specs have been shared by Ishan Agarwal on Twitter today. Although we're not 100% certain that they're the correct and final ones, they seem very plausible as they point to slightly improved components compared to the previous generation.

Galaxy A90 leaks signal that 5G phones may soon become a little cheaper

We're still early yet in the era of 5G technology and, so far, we've only 5G-capable phones that are very expensive. Sometimes very, very expensive. And for any wannabe first adopters on a shoestring budget, it's been looking like a long wait for a more affordable 5G phone. But there's now growing intelligence on such a device coming out of Samsung in the near future — the Galaxy A90 5G.

[Update: IFA teaser confirms] Leaked TCL product roadmap signals folding phone coming next year

TCL may be more known for its TVs than its own phones, but it's had opportunities to flex its mobile muscle by gaining ODM contracts — first, Alcatel Mobile, then BlackBerry, later Palm. Well, at this point, things are seemingly at a lull for the Chinese manufacturer, but it supposedly does have plans for itself when it comes to a real TCL phone or two (or even five).

Sony Xperia 2 leaks ahead of IFA looking almost identical to the Xperia 1 [Update]

Sony is one of the few Android OEMs that still updates its flagship phone twice a year. Before prices can even come down on one Sony phone, there's a newer model. We expect Sony to replace the still very new Xperia 1 at IFA with the Xperia 2, and a handful of leaked images provide a sneak peek at that device. Spoiler: it looks like the Xperia 1.

Motorola was once the king of the budget Android smartphone but its influence has waned in recent years as Nokia and other Chinese competitors have offered increasingly stiff competition. The Moto E series can still offer value to consumers looking for the cheapest passable experience, and we now know what the upcoming Moto E6 Plus is going to look like.
