Evan Blass does it again as he releases the eagerly awaited specifications of the upcoming OnePlus 3. If he is right, then it's all good news for fans of the Chinese OEM. NFC makes a comeback to this year's OnePlus and we love that. Also, as expected, the OnePlus 3 will come equipped with the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6 gigabytes of RAM on the premium variant. There will also be a cheaper 4GB variant apparently.


Since manufacturing OLED panels are now cheaper than ever, it is not really surprising to see that the OnePlus 3 will be adopting an AMOLED panel for its display. The resolution has not yet been revealed, but rumors suggest that OnePlus will stick to the 1080p resolution for this year as well.


Reportedly, there will be a 3,000 mAh battery, state of the art fingerprint scanner and an USB Type-C port. What is interesting is that OnePlus might actually be testing out Android N on its upcoming flagship phone as you read this. However, it would be highly unlikely (but an excellent surprise!) for the Plus 3 to operate on Android N right out of the box. The chances of the budget flagship device running on Marshmallow at launch are far greater.

Evan Blass has leaked another image of the Galaxy S8 today on Twitter, which could be the upcoming press release render for the smartphone. The render even has the date on the phone displaying March 29, Wednesday; the official launch date for the two smartphones. From what we can see, it seems that this time around Samsung may launch the Pearl Black color variant right from the start, instead of waiting like it did with the S7 Edge last year. Whether this is the S8 or the S8+, is a bit hard to discern since both devices look essentially the same this year with their curved edge-to-edge displays.


Additionally, we have a leaked video for you as well from Slashleaks on YouTube, which clearly shows the S8 and the S8+ in action. However, the quality of the video is quite bad, as is the camerawork itself. Nevertheless, they do give us a look at the two devices and is worth checking out. If you want a much shorter but high quality video showing off the S8, check it here.

At this point, the specifications of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 are not really a big secret, but still there has been no official confirmation about them yet. However, Evan Blass from @evleaks has made a post on Twitter earlier in the day regarding the specs and that's about as close as we are going to get to the Note 8's internals before the official unveiling on August 23. As it turns out, this leak isn't any different from what we have heard so far.


Dimensions: 162.5mm x 74.6mm with an 8.5mm


Display: 6.3-inch Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1440×2960 in 18.5:9 aspect ratio


SoC: Exynos 8895/SD 835


RAM: 6GB


Internal storage: 64GB


Rear Camera: Dual 12-mp cameras with dual pixel autofocus (wide angle with f/1.7 + telephoto with f/2.4)


Front camera: 8-mp autofocus with f/1.7


Battery: 3,300mAh


Colors: Midnight Black and Maple Gold (initially); Orchid Grey and Deep Sea Blue may make an entrance later on


Price: €1,000 in Europe/$1100 in US


These specs look pretty legitimate but they don't show us anything we didn't know already.

If @evleaks is right (which he mostly is) then Android 7.0 Nougat could be officially released this month. As the rumors regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have recently been hinting towards the smartphone being launched with Android Nougat right out of the box on August 2, could the Samsung device be the first phone to officially showcase it?


We have bad news for Nexus 5 owners though as Evan Blass is pretty clear in his Tweet that Google will only be updating its devices that came out after the Nexus 5. This means that if you own a Nexus 5, you will need to wait for custom ROM versions from modders if you want to experience Android 7.0 on your three year old Nexus.


We are looking forward to the graphical enhancements which the OS will bring to the table for Android users, but there are other exciting features that could be featured in the final build as well. For example, the Sustained Performance Mode, that is designed exclusively for developers. There's also the new system of upgrading your device with major updates, without having to wait for it to finish as the task will utilize a second partition on your phone's memory to download and install itself. Once you restart the phone, the changes will start to take effect. There are plenty of other features that we got a glimpse of in the five Developer Preview builds released so far, but we will have to wait and see how many of them actually make it to the final cut.

Although we are literally two days away from seeing the LG G6 in action at the Mobile World Congress, @evleaks has leaked a press render for the upcoming smartphone on Twitter. As you can see, the G6 shown here sports a shiny black color and is consistent with what we have seen so far in other leaked images and photos. Going by the leakster's previous records, we are pretty sure that this is the real deal that we are looking at here.


The dual rear camera setup with a flash in between can be seen along with the rear mounted fingerprint scanner placed just below it. Although the specifications are partly based on speculations at the moment, we do know that it will have a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. However, given that all reports are indicating that the G6 will launch with only a dated Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC and a 3,200mAh battery, one cannot help but feel a tinge of disappointment. Let's hope that the dual 13-mp cameras at its back and the new Quad DAC audio can make up for the old chip and the low-powered battery.
