Fxtec's new Pro1-X keyboard slider is the first phone to ship with LineageOS

TCL's short-lived reboot of the BlackBerry brand proved that there's still a market for phones with physical keyboards. The Fxtec Pro1 was released last year as an all-encompassing productivity station, with a sliding horizontal keyboard and multiple operating systems to choose from. Fxtec is now unveiling an upgraded model, which has the distinction of being the first phone to ship with LineageOS.

LG teased a slide-out phone in the Wing announcement and no one noticed

LG teased a slide-out phone in the Wing announcement and no one noticed

LG officially revealed its new 'Wing' smartphone in a livestream earlier today, following weeks of leaked videos and several teasers. The pre-recorded event was over an hour in length, so it's not too surprising that a teaser for a new slide-out device at the very end went unnoticed by most people.

New QWERTY slider smartphone incoming, industry apparently out of fresh ideas

Slide-out QWERTY keyboards were popular on phones many years ago, but in case you haven't noticed, that's not really the case anymore. A company called F(x) Technology, however, is launching a QWERTY slider soon, and it's started to spill the beans on some of the specs.

Plausible OnePlus 7 leak shows all-screen, notch-free, sliding design

Plausible OnePlus 7 leak shows all-screen, notch-free, sliding design

What we've determined is a plausible OnePlus 7 leak has just popped up over on Slashleaks. The image compares an unknown device, presumed to be the Oneplus 7, to the current OnePlus 6T. Both appear to be in cases to disguise their identities (not an uncommon practice during testing), but a few key details are visible. This new phone skips the notch and appears to have a sliding design. If it's legit, the OnePlus 7 might finally deliver the all-screen dream to the mainstream.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 unveiled with slide out front cameras and practically no bezel

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 unveiled with slide out front cameras and practically no bezel

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has revealed its latest flagship phone and, as we've come to expect, it's stunning. The Mix series has always been about pushing the boundaries of what's possible, and the Mi Mix 3 is no different. Just as Xiaomi already teased, the front of the device is nearly bezel-less thanks to a sliding mechanism that hides the dual front-facing cameras (24MP + 2MP).

Android P DP4 gesture app switcher now has full-width slider and larger previews

Android P DP4 gesture app switcher now has full-width slider and larger previews

One of the most divisive (read: generally disliked) features in Android P is the new gesture navigation system, which brings all the convenience of unintuitive, non-descriptive interface elements together with precisely none of the visual space-savings you'd expect to gain from gestures. The latest Android DP4/Beta 3 tweaks the pill-based app switcher a bit, stretching the track for the slider to fill the full width of your screen and expanding app previews to be a lot bigger.

Improved logarithmic brightness slider introduced in Android P DP3

Improved logarithmic brightness slider introduced in Android P DP3

Android P has been making several changes to how it handles brightness, from a merely animated slider for adaptive changes, to the promise of machine learning-based improvements. And another new brightness-related tweak just trickled down in the recent Android P DP3/Beta 2 release yesterday: The slider now controls brightness on a logarithmic scale, rather than linear.

Trek is a portable motorized slider for smartphones and GoPros, Indiegogo pre-orders available for one more week

Have you ever wondered how people make those timelapse videos where the view from the camera smoothly drifts from one point to another? These are done with a piece of gear called a motorized slider. They're generally large, unwieldy, and limited by unfriendly user controls. Enter Trek, a modular, motorized slider designed for smartphones, GoPros, and other lightweight cameras. It's app-controlled for easier use and more advanced routines than many other sliders.

Android N Dev Preview 2 Adds A Pitch Slider Option To Text-To-Speech Settings

Android N Dev Preview 2 Adds A Pitch Slider Option To Text-To-Speech Settings

For those who find Google’s synthetic speech-to-text voice somewhat robotic and grating… well, there’s really nothing that can be done about it. But if you prefer said voice to be higher or lower (or you just want it to sound really funny on those few occasions that you use it), the second release of the Android N developer preview offers it as an option.
