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
We know the next Galaxy Note device will be announced on August 2nd, but that's pretty much all that was quasi-confirmed about Samsung's upcoming big flagship. Rumors had said that the company might skip the number 6 and jump straight to 7, to stay on par with its Galaxy series and not confuse people. After all, most of Samsung's marketing for the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge this year was around the shape of the number 7. Read More
We first spotted the OnePlus 3 last week through a series of blurry photos of a disguised phone posted onto Chinese social network Weibo. The photos revealed what looked to be a metal back on the phone, a single flash LED with no laser autofocus, a possible fingerprint scanner/button below the display, and different packaging options and designs for the phone.
Now we have further confirmation of that original leak through non other than Evan Blass, of @evleaks fame. Evan posted a render of the phone showing its HTC 10-inspired metallic design, protruding camera, OnePlus logo, bottom USB-C and 3.5mm ports, bottom-firing speaker, and a chunky home button below the display.
