With 2018's high-profile phone launches now behind us, it's time to look ahead to what next year will bring. One of the first and most anticipated releases in the calendar for 2019 is the Samsung Galaxy S10, which we will probably see unveiled at the end of February during MWC in Barcelona. Evan Blass has just shared some details about the device. Read More
Razer started sending out invites to an October 10th event just a couple of weeks ago, with little detail except for a big give away in the shape of a phone silhouette. At the same time, a render of the phone's front conveniently leaked, matching the outline in the 'Save the date.' Now, another render has been uncovered giving us a look the back of the device as well. Read More
It's not a secret that Sony's phones haven't exactly experienced the degree of success or sales that the company's competitors have seen. For years its design language was stuck firmly in the past, and the high prices associated with its products kept it from competing at the same level as other OEMs. And according to Evan Blass/@evleaks, the company may even be pulling out of the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa entirely.

As with most high-profile upcoming smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 has seen its fair share of leaks as we approach its official unveiling at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. In recent weeks, we've learned that the Galaxy S9 and its bigger brother the S9+ will have iterative designs, be available in lilac and coral blue, come with 3D Emojis similar to the iPhone X, and we've already seen that the marketing around them will be focused on the camera(s).
The latest leaks come in the form of a range of official-looking renders, likely intended for a stockist's website. Read More
Under the stewardship of HMD Global, the revival of Nokia-branded phones continues apace. The company seems intent on filling out its Android lineup with every number one through ten, and the next devices rumored to be joining the ranks are the Nokia 7+ and the Nokia 1. Thanks to serial leaker Evan Blass, we now know what they're going to look like.
HMD's recent Nokia devices have been well supported and well received – check out Rita's Nokia 8 review, for example. The Nokia 7 was only announced in October, but it seems a plus version is already on its way, likely to be debuted at MWC 2018 in Barcelona at the end of the month. Read More
Smartphone leaks are inevitable, no matter who you are. But they usually happen pretty close to a device's launch date, and they're usually only specific to a single product. Last month, much to Alcatel's dismay, serial leaker Evan Blass shared an image of not one but six upcoming Alcatel phones. Now, Blass has shared higher-resolution renders of those same devices.

If you have fond memories of the 2014 Moto X with leather backing, the Gionee M7 Plus is comparatively more akin to a nightmare. Characterized as a "flagship" by prolific Android leaker Evan Blass, the M7 Plus apparently packs in an 18:9 6.43" display, and is coming "soon." The non-Plus Gionee M7 was announced and released in September, with a MediaTek Helio P30 and running Android 7.1. Read More
Tablets haven't been doing so well in recent years, but companies like Apple, Samsung, and ASUS are still churning them out. ZTE, however, seems to be taking a slightly different approach. According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) of VentureBeat, the Chinese OEM is working on a foldable 6.8" tablet with some fairly high-end specs. But with all this fancy tech will come a high price tag: $650, to be exact. Read More
In the most detailed report regarding Google's upcoming smartwatches yet, Evan Blass of VentureBeat says that LG will be the manufacturer of the devices, which are scheduled to launch on February 9th, the day he previously said Wear 2.0 would launch. Sales will commence the next day in the US, with international rollouts following throughout February and March. Blass confirms that our original renders of the watches are accurate.
They will be called the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style, meaning the names contain no Google branding. The Sport will have a 1.38" display, while the Style will be 1.2" across. Read More
While most of us immediately associate LG with the poorly-built G5, the fairly decent V20, and bootloops (sorry, I had to), the Korean electronics company also produces quite a few budget and mid-range phones under the K-series, X-series, and Stylus/Stylo monikers. At CES in January, LG will reportedly debut six new devices that belong to these series, and another at February's MWC. Read More
