The recent leak comes from the website RootMyGalaxy, courtesy of leaker @Thedroidleaks, who has been active for some time in the tech industry. Although the leak isn't confirmed officially, still it sounds pretty surprising. While the OnePlus 8 Pro is one of the most popular smartphones recently, but it might not be as biggest as we might expect. As per leaks, the device is going to even smaller than its predecessor. There isn't much information on the specs of the device so far, but we are not expecting a huge change from the OnePlus 7 Pro in terms of screen resolution, features, or hardware specs like the camera.
The leak suggests that the OnePlus 8 Pro will have a 6.5-inch screen, making it smaller than the OnePlus 7T Pro or Pro, both of which had a 6.67-inch display. Usually, smartphone manufacturers are aiming for a bigger screen every year and going backward seems strange. For the lite version, the phone could be even smaller than this. Other reports suggest that there will be 8GB of RAM and 12GB RAM variants. This is the same as OnePlus 7T Pro. The 12GB of RAM was in the McLaren Edition phone though, so the standard 7T Pro had the same 8GB of RAM. But since other companies are integrating into even 16GB at this point, 8GB of RAM feels a little less than the required memory.
Another leak suggests that the phone is going to have a 4,500mAh power pack. That's higher than the 4,085mAh of the OnePlusl 7T Pro. Other rumors are claiming a much higher display refresh rate that goes up to 120HZ. The device will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 processing chip, 4,500mAh battery, and 50W fast charging. We can expect some delay in the release of the phone due to coronavirus spread in China. But hopefully, we will see it in the second quarter of this year.
2015 is almost here, Samsung is preparing for its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S6. However, this year Samsung will be releasing two new flagships Smartphones. Latest reports indicates that the Korean Manufacture is preparing to release a smaller version of the Galaxy Note Edge, It will be called "Samsung Galaxy S Edge". The Galaxy S Edge is reported to have the same design as the Galaxy S6 but with a curved-display.
Instead of releasing a Prime variant which is like releasing the same device twice but with higher Specs, Samsung decided to change its strategy to provide a newer/better option with a new technology, Flexible Displays. The Galaxy S Edge will pack the same Specs and Design as the original Galaxy S6 but with curved display on the side. Rumored Specs for the Galaxy S6 include QHD display, Exynos 7420/Snapdragon 810 chipset, and 16MP or 20MP camera.
Both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge is expected to be announced on Early 2015 and to be released on the markets by Late Q1,2015 with Lollipop Pre-installed.
If you are eager to see the Galaxy Note 7 being re-launched then we have good news for you. New images of the Galaxy Note 7 "refurbished edition" has been leaked online. However, the sad news is that in order to make it a safer and less explosive device, Samsung has not only changed the battery line-up, but the batteries themselves as well. While that should be good news, it really isn't because the refurbished Note 7 will now reportedly, sport a smaller 3,200mAh cell instead of the original's 3,500mAh cell.
As the pictures came in from a Vietnamese fan site, it seems that the rumors about the Note 7 being introduced in the country may not be just a rumor after all. Rumor also had it that India would also be getting the refurbished Note 7, but a Samsung employee has mentioned that it won't. Even if it is re-introduced in certain nations, it may not actually go on sale, but could only be available as a rental phone. We will have to wait to find out more. In the meanwhile, check out the images to see all that they reveal.

It's true and it's about to happen in June. The infamous Galaxy Note 7 which had caused Samsung to lose billions of dollars, as well as suffer a lot of criticism, bad reputation and take jabs from even the contemporary US President Obama himself , is finally coming back to its home country with a smaller 3,200mAh battery and a roughly 300,00 Won ($266) price cut. The refurbished Galaxy Note 7 will now be available for purchase in South Korea, starting from June.
No new units have been made according to the reports and there will be only about 300,000 of these refurbished smartphones available with a slashed price tag of 700,000 won (or $620). Samsung won't be rebranding it as anything else, so it will go on sale with as the Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N935), just like it should. In spite of all the negativity, it should be noted that the Note 7 was a huge hit for the company and before everything went haywire, critics all around the globe praised it as the best smartphone by Samsung yet. Would you buy one at this price point if it was available near you?

Last year's LG G Flex didn't exactly take the world by storm. Although featuring a unique curved display, the high price and the massive size were reason enough for most people to stay away from it.
But LG will be announcing a second generation model later this year. According to an unnamed LG executive in India, the second generation G Flex aka G Flex 2 will be smaller than the first one and will feature a "better than Full HD" display. The first model had a 6.0-inch, 720p display.
The phone will launch in Korea first later this year, followed by other markets like US and India.
We are still waiting for Motorola to reveal its upcoming next-gen Moto 360 smartwatch (Moto 360S), it has been leaked online already several times. However, today, we got some photos of a smaller version of the Moto 360S.
It looks like that Motorola is working on a Moto 360S mini variant. it is shown in the image above by itself, but it also gets compared to the original 360 in the shot below. This leak pretty much confirms the hypothesis that Motorola is working on two sizes for its new wearable, emulating Apple's deeds in this space. We first heard that something like this would happen earlier this month.
The small variant of this year's Motorola smartwatch will apparently be called Moto 360S, while the larger one (which should sport the same screen size as its predecessor) will go by Moto 360L it seems. And yes, both of them will keep the 'flat tire' display design introduced last year, we won't see any full circles this time around either. The two models launching in 2015 should have different screen sizes and different battery sizes at least. There's no word on the display size or resolution with this mini version.
