APPLE may be working on a brand new version of its famously dinky iPhone SE, which could arrive later today. Several industry watchers have waded in on the debate over whether Apple has given up on small phones, and seem to agree that a new mini iPhone SE 2 is in the works. New iPhone SE 2: Is it really happening? Apple launched the iPhone SE way back in March 2016, giving customers a smaller alternative to the bigger iPhone 6S. With its 4-inch screen, the iPhone SE soared to popularity among Apple fans who struggled to get to grips with ballooning smartphone sizes. But despite the phone's well-received launch, Apple has shied away from launching a successor to the phone. In a new report from industry experts at TrendForce however, Apple is outed as allegedly preparing a new iPhone SE 2. The analysts write that Apple "will launch the second generation of iPhone SE" in 2018, in a bid to "meet the demand" of budget buyers looking for a smaller device. The Sun has asked Apple for … [Read more...] about New iPhone SE 2 release date – is Apple’s tiny smartphone sequel launching TODAY?

May 7, 2018: iPhone X Plus (2018) will — wait for it — be iPhone Plus sized! From Macotakara: A reliable supplier source says that iPhone X 6.5 inches model which has a rumor that it's a large size model equipping iPhone's OLED, seems to be the same size as iPhone 8 Plus. I think it's safe to say this has always been the assumption. Same as iPhone X is regular iPhone size-ish, iPhone X Plus would be Plus iPhone size-ish. Next model of iPhone X 5.8 inches uses the same body as current model, but along with growing the size of the camera sensor, the lens will become bigger. Camera improvements happen every year because they help sell iPhones. Hard. When you use Face ID authentication, iPhone X needed to be vertical state to recognize it, but in case of iOS 12, it will be able to unlock in horizontal state. The portrait restriction was to get Face ID solid faster. It helped to have a known orientation and optimize for it. As the technology improves, … [Read more...] about iPhone 9 / iPhone XI rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!

OnePlus is gearing up to release its next smartphone and it looks set to be a big one. Over the weekend, OnePlus took to Twitter to confirm the new device will be named the OnePlus 6, replacing the hyped OnePlus 5T as the company’s next flagship device. As well, the company's CEO Pete Lau published a blog post this week revealing more details about the specs of the new smartphone. Here’s what we know so far. OnePlus 6: what will it look like? Design-wise, the OnePlus 6 is thought to have a larger, longer screen than previous iterations. As well, that means it is going to be copying the iPhone X with a notch at the top of the screen. Following a leaked spec sheet, it appears the new phone is going to have a 6.28 inch AMOLED display with 2280 x 1080 resolution. That’s pretty big. The new device is going to be around 7.5mm thin and weigh only 175g. This means it will have a screen bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S9+, as well as being thinner and … [Read more...] about OnePlus 6 release date UK, phone price, rumours, leaks and news
New Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks have good news and bad news, and we're likely in for an updated smartphone with a larger screen and handy S Pen, but one without an in-screen fingerprint sensor, sadly.Update: Samsung has confirmed that Bixby 2.0 is coming to the Note 9, while new rumors suggest an late July launch and early August release date, one month sooner than expected.

We're just days away from the first big Apple launch of 2018, and word on the web is that it's going to be another new iPad.But this one is going to be different to the iPads from before, in that it's going to be even cheaper and - if you read into the most recent Apple invite - it's not going to be aimed at consumers.That's right, there's an outside chance you won't even be able to buy this iPad, although it's probably going to be available for sale in certain locations and could just be the new budget way to get into Apple's tablet ecosystem.But before we go too far into that - and give away one of the most surprising features of this new device - let's break it down bit-by-bit so you can get a proper taste of what we expect from Apple on March 27.Cut to the chaseWhat is it?

Android P has begun its developer preview, meaning that it's now available for developers, or those curious enough to check out some unfinished software. We're guessing that you fit one of those two groups, right? Just like 2017's surprise announcement of Android Oreo, Google unveiled this year's big upgrade a few months ahead of Google IO 2018, where it will dive deep into what to expect from the final release of P – except its name. What will 'P' stand for? We have a few ideas... Based on our hands-on experience, detailed below, Android P appears to focus more on overhauling the visual design of the operating system than how it works, though leave it up to Google to still make countless changes and improvements in the coming months. Looking to download Android P for yourself? You'll need one of four phones currently supported: the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2 or Google Pixel 2 XL. More devices will support the software shortly after its final release, … [Read more...] about Android P release date, first impressions and news
