Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ CAD renders have arrived, and they look just as you'd expect

Leaking smartphones is big business these days.

Next up, we're often treated to unofficial CAD renders of the device based on earlier leaked info. Right on cue, we now have such renders showing what the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are predicted to look like.

Samsung Galaxy A8 will have dual front cameras and infinity display, according to leaked manual

Samsung's most recent Galaxy A-series models were released at the start of this year, way back in January, so it's safe to assume the next generation will make an appearance around the same time early next year. There have been plenty of rumors about the mid-range lineup, and we're pretty sure the naming convention will be changing, with this year's A5 and A7 becoming the A8 and A8+.

New images of Alcatel's leaked top-tier 2018 lineup have appeared

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.

Exclusive: Google Allo to add 'Activities' with built-in games, shared lists, and more

Google Allo is loaded with quirky and unusual features, many of which fall outside of the norm for traditional instant messengers. While a lot of people write off things like selfie stickers as distractions, they serve to give users new ways to make their chat experience into whatever they want it to be. Based on a video and screenshots we've obtained from a person testing preview features in Allo, it looks like the app will soon introduce a feature called 'Activities' with the ability to launch miniature shared apps that everybody can interact with.

Check out these leaked wallpapers from the upcoming HTC U11+

With every new phone launch, the manufacturer is expected to include a number of stock wallpapers for users to choose from. They're another way of differentiating from other OEMs and adding some extra branding flair to a device. The latest flagship phone to be announced by HTC is the U11+, which we've heard was once intended to be the canceled Google Pixel 2 XL (codenamed 'Muskie'). If it had been a Pixel, it would have had Google's Wallpaper app by default, but since it's not, HTC has come up with some wallpapers of its own.

Distressingly designed Gionee M7 Plus leaks, packs massive 6.43" 18:9 display

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.

OnLeaks posts renders of the Nokia 9, showing off curved glass and no headphone jack

Nokia is making phones again, but most of them have been mid-range or cheaper phones. The rumored Nokia 9 will be a flagship phone, and now we have a good idea what it looks like thanks to OnLeaks' latest collaboration with Compareraja. The Nokia 9 looks like a sleek device, but the company is exhibiting an excess of courage by ditching the headphone jack.

New render of Huawei Mate 10 shows off dual cameras and glass back

Huawei's Mate 9 was an excellent smartphone, and it was one you could actually buy in the US. We don't know where the Mate 10 is going to be on sale when it launches, but we have a pretty good idea what it'll look like now thanks to a leak from OnLeaks and CompareRaja. The render shows something very similar to several other recent Huawei phones, but hey, there's still a headphone jack.

The first official render of the LG V30 has leaked, and it's a beauty

Ahead of its reveal on August 31st at IFA in Berlin, we've been able to build a pretty good idea of what to expect from LG's upcoming flagship, the V30. We know it'll have a 6.0" 1440p P-OLED display with a tall 18:9 ratio and curved edges (LG is calling it FullVision). We know it'll have a dual camera setup with a 16MP, f/1.6 aperture main snapper flanked by a 13MP wide angle lens. We know the secondary screen is being replaced by a floating action bar. We also had a pretty good idea of what it's going to look like, from CAD renders and leaked videos.
