In just a few weeks, during its I/O developer conference, Google will announce the long-awaited cheaper Pixel phones. In typical Google fashion, the 3a and 3a XL have already been the subject of full in-the-flesh leaks (more than once) so by this point we know exactly what to expect from them. As if further confirmation were needed, we're now seeing official-looking renders for the first time. Read More
The Moto G series has gone through plenty of design revisions over the years, but all variations — regular, Play, and Plus — usually share the same look. That might change this year, if renders from leaked CAD files are to be believed. Read More
Huawei released some impressive phones in 2018. In March, it announced the P20 and P20 Pro. Then, in October, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro were launched, the latter being a crowd favorite. We now have the renders of the upcoming Huawei P30 courtesy 91mobiles and OnLeaks. Read More
Motorola had a strange 2018. After promising oodles of Mods, the company only launched a single Mod in 2018—the Moto stereo speaker. And then there's the Moto Z3, which only works on Verizon, runs on 2017 hardware, and is still waiting on its promised 5G Mod. It looks like Motorola isn't giving up on the Mods in 2019. Leaked renders of the Moto Z4 Play show the same Mod connector we've come to know and tolerate, and a water drop notch. Read More
It's been scarcely three months since Sony launched a flagship phone, so clearly, it's getting ready to release another. A new leak purports to show renders of the upcoming Xperia XZ4, which looks like an evolution of the XZ3. The phone has more cameras, more display, but still no headphone jack. Read More
Thanks to renders based on factory CAD designs, we're getting our first look at the next incarnation of Lenovo/Moto's popular mid-range smartphone. The Moto G7 isn't due to be launched until 2019, but we now know to expect a new display with a waterdrop notch and curved corners with the fingerprint reader embedded in the 'M' logo on the back (why it took Moto so long to start doing this, I have no idea).

Every passing day (and new Android P build) brings us a bit closer to Google's next Pixel. Earlier this month we got to see a few photos of what looks like a real Pixel 3 XL in the wild, and just a bit later our friends at 9to5Google spotted some fun concept renders that tried to approximate that look with a few different colors. Now MySmartPrice is showing off what are alleged to be accurate renders based on factory CADs by boastful leaker @OnLeaks. Read More
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
