    If the cornucopia of recent leaks is of any indication, the upcoming Galaxy Note7 will feature a USB Type-C port. All of the leaked images and renders (like the one above from @evleaks), seem to testify that the Micro USB on the bottom is gone. Thankfully the headphone jack port is still in. It is also common knowledge, by now, that there will be a new Gear VR 2 headset accompanying the Note7. This is exactly because of the fact that the current Gear VR uses Micro USB connection, making the upcoming Note7 incompatible. Said headset will purportedly set you back 90EUR in Europe. So ...

    There's been no shortage of leaks when it comes to Apple's upcoming iPhones. The iPhone 7 (and variations, like Plus, Pro, etc.) is what the media calls them, but people who claim to have information, like Evan Blass, state that the number 7 (seven) will not be part of the name, hence referring to the device as the iPhone 2016. Regardless of how you want to call it, the iPhone 7 release date (or the iPhone 2016 release date) is predicted to happen on the week of September 12, according to Blass, which is shortly after the conclusion of the 2016 IFA in Berlin, and just a couple of days ...

    Remember the OPPO F1, the "selfie expert" smartphone from the beginning of the year? Whether it delivers what OPPO promises is up to you, go check out our review and quick look at what its camera can do. Almost six months after the F1, the OPPO F1s announced today by the manufacturer is expected to take it to the next level, being built "on the strengths" of its predecessor (which managed to generate a record growth for the company in the first quarter). The company is positioning the upcoming OPPO F1s as one of the core products in its line-up for the second half of the year. Little is ...

    Here's a quick one to quench your rumor thirst for the weekend. Evan Blass just confirmed (remember that he's not Samsung) that the official name of the upcoming Samsung (fall) smartphone will be Galaxy Note7. We already heard rumors of the company skipping a number (we're currently at Note5), among other chatter, but this time around it looks to be the real deal. There will be no Galaxy Note6. There could be a lot of reasons behind such a move from Samsung: lining the Note family up with the Galaxy S family (currently at number 7), in addition to counter Apple's upcoming phablet, ...

    At the end of March we have heard that Samsung might prepare a special Galaxy S7 Olympic Edition this year, which, if previous years are of any indication, should not take anyone by surprise. Past devices are also a great indication of what the phone will actually be: pretty much a standard Galaxy S7 with permanently-affixed Olympic-themed graphics. According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy S7 Olympic Edition will look like the render above, which is pretty much standard, give or take the gold (medal) accents for the earpiece and home button, in addition to the blue (Olympic) accents on the ...

    Update: DigiTimes is reporting that Acer, too, is expecting its operations to be affected by Brexit. The company's CEO, Jason Chen, said that the recent UK vote in favor of leaving the EU will result in weaker demand in the European market, mostly due to "weakened consumer confidence and exchange rate fluctuations. However, how serious the impact may be remains to be seen", he said. UK decided to exit the European Union after 51.9% of voters were in favor of Brexit. However, at least two years will pass until the UK will exit the EU de facto and de jure, a period which will be governed ...

    The "Nexus" brand, and products from this Google line-up, have come a long way, become consumer devices from initial developer gadgets. Past and current iterations have become more and more popular, being made by LG and Huawei, but rumor has it that we'll be seeing one or two HTC Nexus devices this year. Codenames have been discovered in Chromium code (Marlin and Sailfish), and word on the street is that the Taiwanese company's collaboration with Google will not be limited to only 2016 HTC Nexus devices. A three-year deal has been allegedly inked, but we're still waiting for some sort of ...

    Back in March 2015, HTC shuffled around some executives, or at least that's what we've been told. Peter Chou, HTC's CEO at the time took a step back and his position was filled by Cher Wang, at the time, Chairman and co-founder. HTC said that Peter Chou “will transition to a strategic new role leading future product innovation”. However, in reality, looks like Peter Chou left HTC. He has joined Digital Domain as an executive director at the end of August 2015, and is now chairman of the Hong Kong-based company. HTC has confirmed its departure, says DigiTimes, however, mentioning ...

    The entire Sony Xperia X line-up is ready for pre-orders in the US, and the timing is right, as we've just recently wrapped up our Xperia X review (we'll also shortly review the flagship X Performance). Foxconn and Arima were the companies building some previous Sony smartphones in São Paulo, but Sony has decided to stop manufacturing smartphones in Brazil. The decision has been confirmed by Sony's marketing director Ana Peretti, and the reasons behind it are purely financial, as Brazil has put an end of tax exemptions concerning smartphones produced locally. The new Xperia X Sony ...

    LG has announced four new smartphones that join the X family, and its already existent members, the X cam and X screen. According to the official wording, the new X power, X mach, X style and X max "share many of the top end features found on LG’s flagship G and V series handsets". "Greater battery capacity, faster processor, more sophisticated styling or a larger display", are each one key selling point and main feature of these four newcomers. The LG X power features a 4,100mAh battery in a slim, 7.9mm-thick case, with PE+ fast-charging technology, claimed to charge at twice the ...

    The latest Galaxy Note 7 rumor comes from Korea and, according to ETNews, production will start next month (July), in order to have an initial stock ready in time for August. The company is purportedly planning to launch sales at the time of the phone's announcement. Yes, the Galaxy Note 7 is actually the Galaxy Note 6, but it makes sense for Samsung to skip a number in order to align its productivity flagship with its current Galaxy S offerings, as well as the upcoming iPhone 7. With an official announcement less than two months away, as rumored, the South Korean company is allegedly ...

    Despite no major breakthrough or innovation in the past couple of years, the wearables market is still very much alive and kicking. 101.9 million wearable units are expected to be shipped worldwide this year, marking a 29 percent growth over 2015. The information comes from IDC, who predicts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.3 percent, meaning the total number of wearable units shipped worldwide could very well reach 213.6 million units in 2020. Watches and wristbands take up the majority of these numbers, but other wearables are also contributing to the category's market growth ...

    Apple's WWDC 2016 brought us -- among other things like a new watchOS (version 3), tvOS, and macOS Sierra -- the next generation of Apple's operating system for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod: iOS 10. The presentation showed off ten upcoming features of the new platform revamp, ranging from user interface and experience to specific features and overhauls, like Home, Messages, Photos, Music, and more. As usual, Apple already made iOS 10 available to developers as an early beta, and we had to take it for a spin. As with every early stage software, there are bugs to  be ironed out and glitches ...

    The LG G5, by itself, is one of the top smartphones to look for this year. But it's not just the speedy internals, great camera, and all around performance that make this phone interesting; when the company first introduced the G5 at the 2016 MWC, LG also went the extra mile in doing what many have called the first modular smartphone. You can agree or disagree at will, but the LG G5 Friends further enhance the user experience by adding more functionality to the phone. These LG G5 Friends companion devices are finally available in the US. They're the LG CAM Plus (adding functionality to ...

    How important are bezels for you? We're constantly seeking the bezel-less tablet (and phone), looking at screen-to-body ratios, so it must be an important thing to own (and show off) a sexy device. In a world where everyone copies everyone, we hope someone copies this HiSense VIDAA Mirror tablet. The product itself is nothing new. It was spotted for the first time in China at the end of August, and then it was nowhere to be found, until it came to the CES 2016 show floor. This is one tablet where the internals (1.8 GHz Quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, QHD resolution) are ...

    CES 2016 has officially started, and, as it is usually the case with trade shows, it is pretty much over. Companies are generally unveiling products and services, making announcements, and gathering media at their press events prior to the official start of the show. However, that doesn't mean that Day 3 (which is the official day one of CES) was a boring one. Check out the most important things that saw the light of day, rounded up for you below, in case you missed any of the action. Alcatel OneTouch Alcatel OneTouch already announced a line-up of Pixi products, powered by Android (and ...

    Luca Todesco (qwertyqoruiop on Twitter) has apparently manage to achieve an iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak, if the screenshot he posted (above) is to be believed. It shows Cydia running on an iPhone 6, powered by iOS 9.2.1. However, the tweet is accompanied by Todesco's not so reassuring promise that the jailbreak will not be released, at least for now. That, however, doesn't mean that you won't see a working iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak soon, as Todesco might either change his mind, or he might just pass along the information to another team who would release the jailbreak. Meanwhile, other teams are working ...

    Pre-orders for the Nextbit Robin -- the cloud-first smartphone -- have opened on October 22, 2015. Those who wanted to get their hands on the smartphone had to cough up $399, and be very patient until February of this year (next month), when their orders will be shipped. The situation isn't much better when it comes to those who have initially backed the project on Kickstarter. At CES 2016, the company's chief designer Scott Croyle revealed that February 16 is the date when the Nextbit Robin will ship out to its first 1,000 backers. However, according to The Verge, the phone has been ...

    There are two ways to run Windows 10 Mobile on your smartphone. You either install it on a hardware released previously (if you can, and if there's an update out there), or you experience it out of the box on the latest and greatest smartphones powered by Redmond's mobile operating system. So far, about the only two phones (and flagships) that came with Windows 10 Mobile out of the box were the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL, from Microsoft. However, you can now experience Windows 10 Mobile on Acer's latest, the Liquid Jade Primo, announced back at the 2015 IFA. And, to make things more ...

    If you're not familiar with Intel's Compute Stick, introduced in April of 2015, you should know that these USB thumb drive-sized sticks (almost) connect to your TV or screen via HDMI, and offer a full fledged computer experience. At the 2016 CES, Intel introduced its next generation of Compute Stick products, that are smaller, and powerful upgrades over the first generation. Three Intel Compute Stick variants are available: the entry level runs on a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and two USB ports. The other two are powered by more powerful ...

    CES 2016 isn't only about products. Services managed to make their way to Las Vegas as well, and, one of the most recent announcements comes from Netflix. During a recent keynote at CES, the company announced -- and flipped the switch -- on worldwide availability, adding more than 130 new countries around the world to its portfolio of markets where it is available. While English still remains the main language for Netflix, the company also added Arabic, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese to the 17 languages it already supports. The service, however, is not yet available in China, ...

    If you are using Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10, prepare to receive an "End of Live" notification on January 12. Part of the upcoming cumulative security update, the EOL notification that will pop up starting Tuesday will warn users that are still running IE 8, 9 or 10, that their days are numbered, and t's time to upgrade to the latest version of Microsoft's browser. This doesn't mean that Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10 will stop working, or that it will mysteriously disappear from your computer. What this means, however, is that Microsoft will stop offering support in form of bug fixes ...

    Day 2 of CES (which is still day zero, as the show starts today, January 6) has been a rather busy day. Also known as "press day", it's when most of the companies show off their latest tech.

Otherwise, read on for a recap of the most notable things that happened on January 5, 2016.

    It's been a while since we told you that Casio was preparing to launch its first smartwatch this March. Thankfully, the announcement came earlier, as the company has unveiled its plans for the new Android Wear-powered Casio smartwatch at the ongoing CES 2016 in Las Vegas. It's name is a mouthful -- Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch -- but it's built with military standard specifications. It will be available in April for around $500 and brings a 320x300 resolution display in a 1.32-inch form factor, water resistance, MIL-STD-810 build, pressure (air pressure, altitude) sensor, ...

    Aside from its new Notebook 9 series laptops and the Galaxy TabPro S 2-in-1, Samsung also brought a new Chromebook 3 to Las Vegas.

It will be available in Platinum ...
