In fact, OnLeaks and 91mobiles have teamed up to release the first renders and hardware specifications of the upcoming flagship series, opening the leak festival with fanfare. It looks like the new devices will come with a five-camera array with a resolution of up to 108MP on the back, making the Pixel and the iPhone green with envy.

Verizon plans to sell OnePlus smartphones, possibly in 2020

Speaking to sources familiar with the companies' plans, Android Police has learned that Verizon has inked a partnership with Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus. Those sources have indicated that, based on the timeline of past deals, Verizon intends to release a OnePlus smartphone for sale on its network in 2020. It was unclear exactly when or which smartphone (or phones) would be the first to arrive on the carrier, or if they would support Verizon's nascent 5G mmWave technology (which OnePlus has previously shunned).

PhoneArena reported yesterday that Verizon is planning to exclusively carry the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition in the US, though our own sources were unable to corrborate an exact model or launch date.

Google already teased that a next-generation Assistant would be coming to future Pixel devices, and now we know one more trick it might have taking over call holds.

[Update: Wear 3300] Qualcomm may finally deliver a smartwatch processor that doesn't suck

According to a report by WinFuture, Qualcomm is planning another new chipset for Wear OS devices, even though the existing Wear 3100 has barely materialized in any devices. The upcoming silicon will feature 64-bit support, 12nm node, Cortex A53 CPU cores, and is alleged to go by one of two potential names: "Snapdragon Wear 429" or "Snapdragon Wear 2700". In short, it sounds like it might actually bring some decent performance to the platform.

According to Korean tech outlet ET News, Samsung's next foldable smartphone won't look much like the delayed Galaxy Fold at all. In fact, it's in many ways going to be quite the opposite - particularly in the way it folds.

NVIDIA code points to forthcoming desktop mode, possible 2-in-1 SHIELD Tablet

Nvidia news and rumors are always exciting, even here in the Android space.

Google Home Hub rumored to be renamed 'Nest Hub'

Late last month, some mentions of the Nest Hub Max were spotted on the Google Store. We thought it was odd that Google would choose to brand it as a Nest product given that its current smart display is called the Home Hub, but there are now rumors that the Home Hub will be renamed as "Nest Hub."

LG rumored to offer second-screen attachment with upcoming phone

Remember LG's ill-fated Friends modules — you know, that one camera grip thing and the other DAC add-on that never came to the US for the poorly-made G5?

Exclusive: Palm's new Android phone has a tiny 3.3" screen and 800mAh battery - here it is

What you're seeing above is the first Palm smartphone since the Pre 3 was announced in 2011. Currently codenamed 'Pepito,' this new handset is headed for Verizon, and it's possibly the weirdest Android phone of 2018. Sporting a tiny 3.3-inch 720p LCD screen, Pepito is easily the smallest Android device in years to be sold in the USA, and probably one of the smallest in the world. The diminutive size doesn't end at the display - this phone will have a tiny 800mAh battery, we've been able to confirm. That probably doesn't make this phone much of an all-day device, and it really is a bit of a head-scratcher.
