Jerryrig Teardown Of Redmi K20 Pro Shows Rubber Seals Transparent Version Shows Off The Popup Cam

After doing his usual durability test, Zack from Jerry Rig is ready to take the Redmi K20 Pro apart (in Europe, the phone is known as the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro). The most interesting component is the pop-up selfie, but the phone contains a few surprises too. Interestingly, there were rubber seals around every opening, including the pop-up camera. Officially, the K20 Pro lacks any water resistance, it's not even splash proof. Unofficially (and without any promises in terms of warranty), the phone might have a better chance of surviving encounters with liquids than most unrated phones. Anyway,...

Htc Will Focus On Midrangers This Year Integrate Vr And 5g Into 2020 Phones

HTC's August revenue shot up 67% and the company is now planning its comeback. The start won't be glamorous, but the plan for next year is to leverage HTC's expertise in VR and 5G networks to help its smartphones stand apart from the competition. Darren Chen, President of HTC Taiwan, notes that two thirds of the local market is made up of phones under the NTD 10,000 mark (that's about $320). So, HTC will launch more phones targeting that segment. We guess we should expect more Wildfire and Desire phones. As for next year, HTC wants to integrate its VR know-how into phones. While...

Huawei Mate 30 Rs Porsche Design Also Incoming

Huawei is releasing its Mate 30 series later this week. We expect at least the Huawei Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro to be announced, but there is a third phone in tow - Huawei Mate 30 RS Porsche Design. The device's arrival was announced by Richard Yu, CEO at Huawei and we expect it to be quite different than its regular siblings. The short eight-second clip suggests we should expect a back panel with vertical design elements.

Oppo Reno Ace Arriving On October 10

Oppo introduced three Reno2 smartphones in late August, but none of them were a true flagship specs-wise. At the end of the event the company VP Brian Shen actually revealed a new phone is incoming, called Reno Ace. Today, the Weibo account of the phone maker confirmed the device, revealing its launch date - October 10. The Oppo Reno Ace will have 65W fast-charging capabilities, which is 30% more than the current 50W SuperVOOC.

Sony Xperia 5 In For Review

Long live the Xperia Compact family! It appears that Sony heard our prayers and decided to release another compact flagship even if the new member to the family doesn't have "Compact" in its name. While the new naming scheme might not immediately give it away the Xperia 5 is actually a minimized Xperia 1. It's rocking the same high-end hardware and design. The resolution has been downgraded to 1080p and the battery capacity has been reduced slightly, but considering the smaller screen size we are actually expecting better battery life. Xperia 5 (on the left) and Xperia 1 (on the...

Lg Might Be Getting Back Into Tablets With The G Pad 5

Straight off the bat, this is clearly an extremely odd leak. Not only has LG been out of the tablet game for over two years now, but the Snapdragon 821 chipset just seems too old to even be available at this point. That being said, references to the G Pad 5, as well as LM-T600 or code-name TF10 have been creeping up all over the place. The LM-T600L (or LMT600L) has received a radio certification by RRA in South Korea. More crucially, the same model number was also spotted in a recent kernel source code upload entry on LG's own servers. LMT600, LMT600L and LMT600US were originally...
