Samsung Galaxy A51 leaked with four rear cameras, sticks with headphone jack and microSD slot (Update: Press photos and unveiling date)

It might not be the phone we're going to talk the most about, but we think it's still pretty important to have a look at and learn about one of Samsung's upcoming smartphones coming out next year. Now, courtesy of some leaks, we're getting a preview of what will be the Galaxy A51.

Samsung's Galaxy A20s is a cheaper A20 for South Asia

The Galaxy Fold isn't the only new version of an old device in town from Samsung. The company is in the middle of updating some of its A-series smartphones with newer variants signified with an 's' suffix at the end of the model name.

The OnePlus 7 is available to buy today in the UK, Europe, and Asia

For every major market except the United States, a new OnePlus phone is available for purchase today. The OnePlus 7 is very much an updated 6T (a 6Tt, if you will), but I found the upgrades to be worthwhile when I tested the phone for my review, especially considering the price is the same.

Nokia X71 launches in Asia with hole punch display and 48MP camera

A hole punch front camera with an almost bezel-free display is the dominant smartphone design trend for 2019, whether you like it or not. HMD Global's new Nokia-branded device is the latest to go with this setup, and it certainly looks handsome for it. The mid-ranger has been announced for the Asian market, launching first in Taiwan.

LG Starts Rolling Out The Good Looking All-Metal Midrange LG Zero To Asia, Europe, And Latin America

Smartphones are inspirational. People see me carrying an LG G4 and want a cheaper almost just as good alternative from the brand. But up until now, LG's midrange has been lacking both in terms of specs and looks. That's why it's interesting to hear about the global rollout of a new premium'ish offering from the company that is good enough for a grand majority of users. Think of this LG Zero as the answer to Samsung's Galaxy Alpha series, but in only one configuration so far.

If the design looks eerily familiar to those of you who have had smartphones for more than 5 years, it's because the LG Zero resembles a Nokia N8 with a bit of LG thrown in.

The HTC One Max Is Being Updated To Android 5.0 In Some European And Asian Territories

HTC seems to have forgotten about its sole entrant into the "phablet" market - they haven't released anything as large as the 5.9-inch One Max since its debut way back in 2013. But presumably the people who own it still like it, or at least use it, so the news that HTC is finally updating the device to Android 5.0 should be welcome. Numerous users have started receiving the Lollipop OTA as evidenced by posts to Twitter and XDA-Developers.

At the moment it looks like the release is limited to European and Asian territories: so far owners in Poland, the Czech Republic, France, and HTC's home country Taiwan have reported that they've gotten the OTA alert on their phones.

HTC One M9+ Leak Looks Like Someone Took An M9 And Beat It With The Ugliest Ugly Stick Ever Snapped Off The Ugly Tree

There were a few leaks of a larger version of the M9 in advance of the announcement, but it didn't show up back at MWC. Still, it looks like this phone is still going to be released in the Asian market. New images of the M9+ have been leaked, and it's not an attractive device. I realize design is subjective, but 4 out of 5 AP staffers think this is a truly ugly phone.

Android One Coming To Bangladesh, Nepal, And Sri Lanka In Just a Few Weeks

 

On the heels of its September launch in India, Google has announced further expansion of the Android One program into three new countries: Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. The choice of locations seems to suggest that Google’s efforts with the One initiative will radiate outward geographically from India. No precise availability date has been set for any of the new markets, but devices will be out “in the coming weeks.”
