Samsung Galaxy S9 will be the first high profile smartphone of 2018 with its launch expected to take place in March. While there isn’t much known about the device other than a few obvious aspects, a new benchmark listing has provided some information regarding the device’s performance.
New benchmark results for a Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G960F – widely expected to the global version of the Galaxy S9 – have appeared on the Geekbench website. The smartphone will most likely be powered by the new Exynos 9810 chipset, which was announced earlier in November. The phone scores 2680 on the single-core Geekbench 4 test and a 7787 on the [...]
Samsung’s budget smartphone lineup has had a lot of competition over the years since the rise of the likes of Xiaomi and Lenovo’s budget lineup. The Galaxy J5 Prime has long been Samsung’s flag bearer in the sub 15K category and the next year’s J5 Prime 2018 will be an incremental upgrade over the J5 Prime 2016 edition. New benchmark listing sheds light on what we can expect from the upcoming J5 Prime 2018 variant.

OnePlus has launched its second flagship smartphone in 2017, the OnePlus 5T at a price of US $499. The device will be available globally on and will go on sale in India on the 21st of November via a flash sale exclusively on Amazon.
The OnePlus 5T is an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 5 which was launched in June 2017. The hardware is more or less the same as the OnePlus 5, with a new design and display size. The OnePlus 5T is more in line with 2017 flagship phones with thin bezels and a tall display which has become a norm in 2017 flagship phones like the Galaxy Note8 and the iPhone X.
The OnePlus 5T has a 6-inch Full Optic AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 px [...]
OnePlus cannot seem to catch a break. A few days after it was revealed that OnePlus left an application that allowed backdoor entry to OnePlus devices, a new application has been found recording sensitive data and storing it unencrypted inside the phone. This app is reportedly called OnePlusLogKit and, like its name suggests, logs an extensive amount of user data.
The same researcher who exposed the EngineerMode app a few days ago has made the new revelation as well. The researcher wrote in a post that all of the user data stored by this app is unencrypted, and also added that this data could also likely be sent to China. The researcher, who goes by the moniker of Elliot [...]
Up until a few weeks ago, the OnePlus 5T seemed like a mythical entity created by someone with a Twitter handle. A series of hoaxes were followed by some believable leaks and then finally, OnePlus confirmed that the device is real. The OnePlus 5T, just the OnePlus 3T was to OnePlus 3, will be an incremental upgrade over the OnePlus 5. So, people who have recently bought the OnePlus 5 should not feel disappointed and for people waiting to upgrade to a new phone, the 5T makes more sense than the OnePlus 5.
Pete Lau blogged about what the pricing technique will be for the OnePlus 5T. He did not explicitly say that the OnePlus 5T will be more expensive than the OnePlus 5t but, [...]
Apple is one of the few companies still aggressively making tablets. So much so, that in the tablet industry, it is either an iPad or no tablet. Samsung launches a few tablets as well but, nothing comes near the dominance of iPads. The iPad Pro lineup is another successful iteration of powerful tablets with high-end specifications and premium price tag from Apple. It appears that Apple will continue that in 2018 as the next iPad is expected to be powered by an upgraded version of the iPhone X processor.
Chinese website MyDrivers revealed that Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro models will feature octa-core processors that are actually based on Taiwanese company TSMC’s 7nm manufacturing [...]

The mod even has a dedicated shutter button to make clicking photos relatively easier. You can also use the mod to print out photos you’ve already taken, and other pictures [...]

Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are expected to be launched in March 2018. New reports suggest that the two new flagship phones will be accompanied by a smaller sibling, the Galaxy S9 Mini.
When the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were launched earlier this year, and ever since their launch there were rumours of the of the Galaxy S8 Mini. It was expected that Samsung will continue the ‘Mini’ series for its flagship phones, similar to what it did with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Mini.

Ever since the iPhone X was launched, the most talked about feature has been Face ID. The near bezel-less design of the iPhone X meant that Apple had to get rid of the iconic home button and Touch ID. At the launch of the iPhone X and over the last few weeks, Apple has said that Face ID is much more secure than Touch ID and the possibility of bypassing it is you have an evil identical twin.
A new video has emerged of a ten-year old unlocking his mother’s iPhone X using Face ID. In the video, the mother explains that despite setting up Face ID for her face, her son is able to unlock the phone using his face.
Wired reports that after the mother reregistered [...]
So far in 2017, Sony has launched some impressive premium devices as well as capable mid-rangers. The company has however, strayed away from the growing trends of thin bezel phones and dual cameras.

According to a GFXBench listing, the Sony phone with the model number Xperia H3213 Avenger will have dual cameras on the front of the device. The listing reveals that the new Sony will be equipped with a 16MP + 8MP camera setup. Front facing dual cameras are not as common but, recently there have been phones like the Honor 9i which also sport a similar setup. [...]
