Flexible screens are probably among the most delicate pieces of tech out in the real world, and Huawei’s decision to put one on the outside of its first foldable was surely a risky venture. With the follow-up Mate X2, the company will allegedly make an about-face and settle on an inward folding design, and the resulting device looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Fold2 in these leaked renders.
ASUS may be prepared to tread where Lenovo has gone before with a new Chrome OS tablet, complete with kickstand and keyboard cover. Intelligence suggests that the so-called Chromebook Flip device could have nearly the same spec footprint as last year's Duet. And in fact, the few spots where things differ, this new tablet could come out bigger and better.
Sony's smartphones have historicallynotbeenpopular, but that hasn't stopped the company from... not really changing anything. The company's main flagship phone for 2021 is due for release soon, and now we have our first good look at it, thanks to a series of leaked renders.
Xiaomi's Mi Bands have always been among the most affordable options when it comes to activity tracking, offering quite some bang for the buck. It looks like the prospective next entry to the line, the Mi Band 6, will continue that trend. Renounced Mi Band and Huami leaker Magical Unicorn reports on their new website that we can expect some interface overhauls, more trackable activities, and maybe even SpO2 and on-board GPS.
When OnePlus rolled out an Android 11-based beta to the OnePlus 7 and 7T last week, it also included a new version of its Camera app, v6.4.23. While there aren't any significant user-facing changes in it just yet, XDA Developers managed to dig into the code and found a few strings and assets that point to new features for upcoming handsets — possibly the OnePlus 9 that looks to be scheduled for March.
Why is it so hard to find a good smartphone that's not also huge? The last Compact-branded phone we got to see from Sony was about three years ago, and its more recent smallish flagship has a 6.1” screen — thus can’t really be labeled "compact." Now a recent leak suggests that Sony is actually working on a new 5.5-inch phone, marking the resurrection of the Xperia Compact lineup.
Sony is reportedly preparing to release its third Xperia 10-branded phone, appropriately named Xperia 10 III, in the next few weeks. Steve Hemmerstoffer, who also goes by OnLeaks, has shared a few renderings of this upcoming Sony mid-ranger, along with a brief spec overview.
We’ve time and again heard that OnePlus is working on a "lite" model to accompany its main flagship line. Last year's rumored 8 Lite ended up launching as the Nord, but the company hasn't given up on the idea. It seems to be trying its hand at a proper Lite phone, likely as part of its main flagship line, as a new report suggests that the OnePlus 9 Lite is indeed on the way... but only for two countries in Asia.
Pretty much everything about the Galaxy S21 series has been leaked at this point short of a full announcement... and now, a full press release has been leaked. Samsung Germany accidentally posted the Galaxy S21 Ultra's announcement earlier today; it's since been deleted, but as we all know, truly erasing something from the Internet is next to impossible.
