Pixel 3 teaser might indicate a third mint aqua color

Upcoming Google Pixelbook devices allegedly shown off in 3 new leaks

At this point, we're pretty sure that Google is going to release not one, but two new Chrome OS devices at its NYC hardware event on October 9. There have been persistent rumors about an updated Pixelbook with smaller bezels, but there's convincing evidence to suggest we will also see a tablet with a detachable keyboard (please call it Pixelet). We might now have our first look at the new models, codenamed 'Nocturne' and 'Atlas.'

Alleged OnePlus 6T box leaks in photos, showing off in-display fingerprint sensor and 'waterdrop' notch

For the past few generations, OnePlus's phones have been heavily based on those from sister company OPPO. The OnePlus 6 was based on the OPPO R15, the OP5T was inspired by the R11s, and so on. OPPO's R17 debuted last month with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a 'waterdrop' notch, and — surprise! — the alleged box for the OnePlus 6T showcases those same features.

If you somehow need more evidence that the phone exists, or you just enjoy seeing these leaks as I do, someone left a pre-production unit in a Lyft.

Sony Xperia XZ3 leaked, looks almost exactly like the XZ2 Premium

Earlier this year, Sony debuted the Xperia XZ2 Premium. It was a radical departure in design from previous Sony phones, but it wasn't received very well. The slippery back and heavy frame made it difficult to hold, and the strange fingerprint sensor location wasn't ideal. We've known a lower-end version of the XZ2 Premium was coming, and now we have our first look at it.

Latest Pixel 3 XL leak includes camera samples, wireless charging confirmation, and more

It looks like an early shipment of Pixel 3 XL units "fell off a truck," and a Russian blog managed to snag one of the units. That means it's time for a new Pixel leak, and no more of this public transit spy shot stuff. Not only do we see the device and accessories in greater detail, there are sample images and confirmation of wireless charging as well.

Black Pixel 3 XL caught on camera in the wilds of Canada

Pixel 3 XL details have been leaking from Google like a sieve recently. Just earlier today, our Canadian friends at MobileSyrup were tipped off with a set of photos showing a phone which looks to be the Pixel 3 XL in all its exceptionally notched glory.  This is also the first time we've spotted one in the expected black colorway in use, as the previous engineering sample leaked back in June was unable to boot.

Source: Samsung is working on a massive 17" Android tablet, and it's coming to AT&T

Speaking to Android Police, a source familiar with the company's plans has revealed that Samsung will launch an enormous 17" Android tablet known as the Galaxy View 2.

Three years ago, Samsung announced the Galaxy View (the device pictured above), an 18.4" tablet running Android 5.1. While it was absolutely ridiculous, there really was no other device like it on the market, and at a starting price of $600, it actually wasn't a horrible value. You essentially got what was a giant portable monitor with a full operating system.
