Android 12 is already available as a developer preview, which we've extensively examined. But it's becoming increasingly clear that Google hasn't spilled all the beans yet and might be planning on some more drastic changes than visible in the currently available pre-release build, and it seems like that gut feeling is right. XDA managed to get its hand on an unreleased build of the upcoming OS and gives us an overview of many potentially upcoming features.
Samsung's mid-range Galaxy A series is deep and wide, much more so than the mainline S series. The latest A phone to break cover is the A82, also referred to as the "Quantum2" in its leaked materials. It's a sequel to the Galaxy A Quantum announced last summer, which was a variant of the excellent Galaxy A71. The leaked specifications describe, as implied by its model number, a phone on the high end of the mid-range.
The distinctive blue, red, yellow, and green light bar on the Google-branded Chromebook Pixel laptop and Pixel C tablet was a delightful bit of subtle branding, and it's a shame we haven't seen it on subsequent models like the Pixelbook. But according to a snippet of code spotted in the Chrome repository, it might be coming back on a future Chromebook machine from Lenovo.
OnePlus is all set to completely reveal its 9 and 9 Pro flagship phones tomorrow in a live event. But T-Mobile is getting the party started early: the carrier posted both phones, including a full list of specifications, to its website a day early. At this point there have been so many leaks (and so many promotional posts from OnePlus itself) that there are few surprises left. But if you're looking for spoilers, here they are.
Earlier this week renders of a new Poco X3 Pro were spotted from familiar leakers. It seems like a release for this boosted version of the Poco X3 NFC, which has been out for about half a year, is immanent: now it's showing up in retailer listings, complete with a set of specs. It's mostly similar to the already-released device, but the text teases more RAM and storage, and a Snapdragon SoC we haven't heard of before.
Last year's OnePlus 8 Pro was the company's first model to support wireless charging, and they did it with a splash, adding support for a proprietary 30-watt "Warp" charger. According to leaks on the upcoming refresh, the 9 Pro will boost that to 50 watts, presumably speeding up the wireless charge rate even more.
If you're a fan of Xiaomi's flagship sensibilities, but not the high prices that come along with them, you might be in luck. A new alleged leak shows a Lite variant of the Mi 11, which caused a stir when it launched internationally last month. It appears to be a midrange alternative to the high-end original, but with rumored specs including a Snapdragon 765G processor, it might just hit the spot.
Yesterday we had our first look at the Huawei P50 Pro. Following close behind is the P50, sans Pro modifier, with a very similar set of leaks. According to the images, this presumably cheaper variant ditches the curved screen panel and has slightly thicker screen bezels. The distinctive giant camera module, with two bulbous lenses, remains in place.
Huawei may be in trouble due to the trade restrictions imposed by the US, but the company is still doing its best to create enticing new products. After we got a first glimpse at the upcoming P50 Pro flagship on New Year's Eve 2020, renowned leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (better known as @OnLeaks) is back with more renders that give us a way better idea of what the device will look like — prepare for an absolute unit of a camera bump.
The OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro will be unveiled on March 23, but of course, we might as well end up learning everything there is to know about the phones ahead of time thanks to leaks. The latest details to become public prematurely revolve around the colors. WinFuture snagged up a few renders of the OnePlus flagships, and some of the designs sure look familiar.
