Right after the Galaxy S24's design was revealed by SmartPrix in collaboration with @OnLeaks, it's now time for the Galaxy S24 Ultra.
The CAD-based renders reveal the full design of the phone and as reports have indicated, the Galaxy S24 Ultra looks similar to the current Galaxy S23 Ultra.
There are four cameras on the back in the same arrangement, a nearly identical rectangular shape with flat tops and bottoms and a lightly curved side frame.
The front of the phone shows a flatter screen edge, noticeably less curved than the S23 Ultra.
The report says that Samsung has reduced...
While the past two weeks have been all about the iPhone 15 series, we did get a strange recent development with the three-year-old iPhone 12 in France. The National Frequency Agency (ANFR) found the vanilla iPhone 12 was emitting higher than allowed electromagnetic waves which forced the regulator to ban Apple from selling the device on the local market and required Cupertino to issue a software update.
A new report from ANFR claims that the regulator has now approved Apple’s iPhone 12 software update (version 4.06.02) which was tested by the French agency and was found to lower the...

When a new iPhone launches, people love a controversy. But the iPhone 15 has had an especially rough start with reports of overheating, rough-looking FineWoven cases and dramatic drop tests. CNET's Bridget Carey looks into which complaints are a real cause for concern.
The Tecno Phantom V Flip debuted last week and will go on sale on Sunday, with India being the first market to get it. As a part of the early bird sale through Amazon.in, its price is INR49,999 ($600/€565) in both color options - Iconic Black and Mystic Dawn.
The Phantom V Flip is Tecno's first clamshell smartphone. It features a 6.9" 120Hz FullHD+ folding LTPO AMOLED screen with a centered punch-hole for the 32MP selfie camera. There's another screen on the cover, which is circular and measures 1.32" and has two cameras around it - 64MP primary and 13MP ultrawide.
Qualcomm announced its next-generation AR/VR platforms called Snapdragon XR Gen 2 and AR1 Gen 1. The two platforms should enable mixed reality and virtual reality in thin and lightweight devices that don't require an external battery pack. This gives other OEMs a chance to grab a share of the space that should see an uptick in popularity following the launch of Apple's Vision Pro.
The Snapdragon XR Gen 2 is arguably the more interesting chip of the two. It supports MR and VR devices with 2.5x better GPU performance compared to its predecessor, 8x better AI performance, support for up...

Last month, reliable tipster Ice universe claimed Samsung will adopt a flat design with the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+, and their claim has been corroborated by leakster OnLeaks, who, in partnership with Smartprix, has shared Galaxy S24's renders revealing its design.
Like the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S24 also has a flat back, but it's a departure from the S23's curved frames since it has iPhone-like flat frames, which could make the smartphone less comfortable to hold for some.
You can also notice that the LED flash on the rear is now placed between the first and second camera and...
To call Samsung's design language for its smartphones "predictable" at this point would be a very obvious understatement. All of its devices basically look incredibly similar from the rear, with very similar individual camera circle-islands. That goes from the top of the line all the way to the most affordable handsets, and the upcoming Galaxy A15 will be no exception.
Earlier this month we saw the first leaked renders showcasing the device, and you can definitely tell it's a Samsung. Three individual, vertically aligned camera 'bumps' on the rear? Check. Today legendary leakster Evan...

Google's series of video ads under the "#BestPhonesForever" moniker continues today with the latest installment, a "scary story" about how wonderful and AI-filled the upcoming Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro launch on October 4 will be.
That is, compared to the iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max portrayed alongside the Pixel 7 Pro in this video. The iPhone, in Google's opinion, only got "a different mute button, a dynamic-er island, and a new charging port". The iPhone is thus nervous about the prospect of the Pixel 8 Pro being more innovative, and getting "the best AI", whatever that means.
Not everyone needs a Pro iPhone and for those that want a compact but capable daily driver, the iPhone 15 is the go-to. But the vanilla model was getting a bit repetitive these past few years.
The iPhone 15 has reinvigorated the form factor in a big way. For starters, it now has a universal port - the USB-C on the bottom opens up the iPhone to a world of universal accessories it didn't have.
The other change is about bringing the base model up to speed. The Dynamic Island makes the 15 look fresh and modern, not to mention that it's interactable, unlike the solid block that was the...

Arguably one of the most anticipated game titles this year is Counter-Strike 2. Valve, the studio behind the famous competitive shooter, announced the update to the existing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in March this year, but limited the beta testing to select high-ranking players, streamers and content creators.
Counter-Strike 2 doesn't feel like an upgrade, but like a totally different game. While most of the mechanics for which we love Counter-Strike are in place, CS2 is an improvement in many aspects and fixes a slew of issues, for which the community was complaining about for...
