Did You Plan on Buying a 512GB Galaxy Note 9? Too Bad, Samsung Probably Won’t Let You

When it comes to international releases, phone companies rarely offer a universal range of products. Some of them do, but plenty of them don't. Samsung is one of the worst, keeping certain colours or variants away from specific markets for reasons that never quite make sense. That's not likely to change anytime soon, because the rumoured 512GB Galaxy Note 9 isn't likely to be available here. Read More >>

Leak Reveals Samsung’s Unreleased Dual-Screen Folding Smartphone

A lot has been made about Samsung releasing a folding smartphone sometime in the next 12 months or so, but we don't know many details on what that phone will involve. Well, if this latest leak is to be believed, it probably won't be a folding dual-screen smartphone. That's because Samsung seemingly made one, and never bothered to release it. Read More >>

Don’t Expect the Galaxy Note 9 to Resurrect the Camera Button

Whatever happened to phones coming with camera buttons? There was a period about three of four years long when they were all over the place, but now they're rarer than porn in the Vatican.

A new rumour claims the phone is going to be expensive. Very expensive. Double the price of the iPhone X expensive. Read More >>

Rumour Claims Samsung Galaxy S10 and LG G8 Will Use Fancy Tech to Avoid Notching Their Screens

The latest trend in the smartphone industry is full-screen displays that minimise the bezel and take full advantage of a phone's size. There's still hardware that needs to be positioned on the front, though, so the majority of phone makers have resorted to adding a 'notch' to accommodate sensors, the front camera, an earpiece/speaker grill, and so on. But if the latest rumour is to be believed, Samsung and LG might implement fancy new tech to avoid any sort of notch or bar at the top of their next big phones. Read More >>

New Leak Seemingly Explains the Galaxy Note 9’s Horizontal Camera Layout

Last week some renders of the Galaxy Note 9 leaked, showing off a phone that looks exactly how you'd expect: a big rectangle that looks a lot like the Galaxy Note 8. One thing people noticed, however, is that the camera layout was horizontal, and not the vertical redesign introduced in the Galaxy S9. Well now a new leak has popped up, seemingly explaining that choice. Because it's a choice that needed to be explained, clearly. Read More >>

Unlikely Rumour Claims iPhones Will Ditch Lighting for USB-C Next Year

Apple has never been one to follow tradition. When laptops had VGA and HDMI ports, Macbooks had Displayport. When phones all adopted the microUSB standard at the behest of the EU, Apple stuck with its own proprietary connection. Even in the olden days before USB was adopted en masse, Macs used different connections to regular old PCs. So when rumours claim Apple will be ditching it's homemade Lighting connection for USB-C, it's not unreasonable to be incredibly sceptical. Read More >>

Retail Leak Claims Netflix and YouTube are Coming to Nintendo Switch

There are people out there who aren't happy about the fact Nintendo's Switch can play good games without needing to be plugged into a TV.

It's these people that are likely to be overjoyed that a retail leak seemingly confirmed Netflix and YouTube apps are coming to the console. Read More >>

Details About Samsung’s Long-Expected Bixby Speaker Have Just Leaked

When it comes to levels of AI assistant popularity Samsung's Bixby is, well, erm... It's probably best not to go there. It's only available on expensive Samsung phones, and to top it off a lot of people don't really like it. That's compared to the others, which are all more readily available and in the hands of more people. Samsung's not going to let Bixby go anytime soon, and it's long been expected that the company will develop it's own Bixby-powered smart speaker to take on the competition. It just so happens that some details about that have leaked. Read More >>

Analyst Predicts Apple Will Make This Year’s iPhone Range More Affordable, But I’ll Believe it When I See It

Back in the day Apple used the phrase "it does more, costs less, it's that simple" to showcase why people should go out and buy one of its computers. Decades later low cost is just about the last thing you'd associate with Apple, in part thanks to the company turning itself and its products into fashion statements. Read More >>
