MediaTek targets gamers on a budget with new Helio G90 series chipsets

If you take a look at how gaming smartphones are comprised, you'll find that the OEM usually draws from off-the-shelf components and augments them with software or extra hardware, like thermal coolants, to juice up performance.

Galaxy Note 10 tipped for Unpacked event on August 7

Epic Games is launching its own store, will come to Android in 2019

Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games, has just announced the upcoming launch of the Epic Games store. At first it will only contain a few select titles for PC and Mac, but eventually, it will open up to include Android games.

HTC reveals the U12 Life: A slightly boring mid-range phone that won't be coming to the US

HTC is continuing its recent attempts to sell phones in the so-called "premium mid-range" market with the newly announced U12 Life. Specs are about what you'd expect for incremental improvement over last year's U11 Life, with a 6" 1080p-equivalent 2:1 display, new dual camera configuration, and Google Pixel-reminiscent two-tone rear design. Unlike last year's model, though, this one won't be coming to the US.

Galaxy Note9 is official: Bigger battery, powered S Pen, and Fortnite for $1,000

In keeping with Samsung's yearly tradition, the latest entry in the Note series has been formally revealed.

Packing the latest Snapdragon 845 and a sizeably increased 4,000mAh battery, Samsung's new Note phone includes all the best features we have come to expect from a 2018 flagship, with none of the notch. In keeping with the swelling specifications, the price has also increased to a round $1,000.
