Is someone really listening up there? Have our incessant pleas for the return of sensible phone sizes finally been heard? Some recent rumors sure have us wondering as much. And we're not talking about the return of some explicitly petite series like Sony's Xperia Compact line, either — there's increasing evidence of a trend towards the smaller for one of Android's most prominent flagship families.
OnePlus's usual smartphone cycle revolves around two main flagship series. There's a mainline model in the spring, followed by an upgraded half-step successor in the fall. At least, that's how it normally goes. A new report gives us a good idea of what's in store for OnePlus throughout the next few months, and what's on the way might catch you off guard.
The Pixel 5a 5G has been "coming soon" for quite some time now, but it looks like we may finally see it officially launched later this month. Google's budget phone plans for this year have been somewhat confusing, but we're talking about a follow-up to the Pixel 4a 5G rather than the smaller 4a. As such, the freshly leaked specs and price would make sense — it's apparently going to have a 6.4-inch display and cost $450.
In its bid to keep on the forefront of the 5G race in the United States, T-Mobile hasn't made its plans to kill off its and Sprint's 3G networks exactly loud and clear, but we had a good idea of when the ball would start rolling and when it would finish. Well, that was until the plans apparently changed, before shifting again just a few months later.
Mixing colors might remind you of fingerpainting in kindergarten where you always ended up going too far and turning everything into that ubiquitous brown. But Philips may let you do so less messily with a new set of Hue Lights coming very soon.
Google's upcoming Pixel 6 looks like a return to form for the company, based on current leaks. In fact, we've seen quite a bit when it comes to the new phone, both internally and externally, and it looks like it should be the first "true" flagship from the company for two years — or longer, depending on how you felt about the Pixel 4. Everything's subject to change as we learn more, but here's everything we know about the Pixel 6 so far.
Samsung has plenty of new gadgets on the horizon, and nearly all of them have leaked out. From the Galaxy Z Flip3 and S Pen-equipped Z Fold3 to the hotly-anticipated Galaxy Watch4 series, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the fall lineup. All that's been missing is when we'll actually see the launch for all these new devices, but a new report is finally filling in those details.
It seems like we're just a little bit more sure about when the clock is about to strike on another budget territory Pixel phone. If you were left guessing about when you can buy your Pixel 5a, we'd like to provide some guidance.
True wireless earbuds might be all about the sound first and foremost, but the devil, as always, is in the details and they include aesthetics. More of such details — specifically, the colors we can expect — have emerged from the usual sources.
