Flashback Iphone 4 The Phone That Made Apple A Camera And Display Powerhouse

Apple introduced the latest generation of its smartphones, iPhone 11, and it reminded us of one of its predecessors - the iPhone 4 introduced in early June 2010. Like the 11, this phone brought a change in Apple's naming scheme and design language and its best features were its camera and its display. The iPhone 3GS had a smoothly curved back made of glossy plastic. Jony Ive's design for the iPhone 4 called for an exposed aluminum frame sandwiched between two panes of strengthened glass - a recipe that has been copied by just about every phone maker since. The iPhone 4 introduced...

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...

Another Huawei Mate 30 Case Leak Offers A Closer Look At The Circular Camera Module

Yet another case leak for the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 (or perhaps it could be the Pro, we can't really say). To absolutely nobody's surprise, it features a circular camera cut-out on the back, alongside a thin vertical sliver.

New Iphone 11 Pro Video Ads Focus On Toughness Triple Cameras

Earlier today the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max went up for pre-order in a lot of countries, so it's not very surprising that Apple saw fit to launch its full-on video ad campaign for the iPhone 11 Pro at the same time. These ads should drive some people to hit that Pre-order button, we assume. The first one is all about toughness, with the phone being put in a high-speed wind tunnel with objects being flung at it. Kids toys, food, ice cubes, hair brushes - they all bounce off the iPhone 11 Pro without leaving a mark. So it looks like we're going to have to wait for the...

A Kirin 990powered Huawei Smartphone Pops Up On Geekbench

A mysterious Huawei smartphone rocking the new Kirin 990 chipset just appeared on Geekbench and in all likelihood it's either the Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro since the two are close to launch. However, the model number listed in the score sheet is unknown so it might be an entirely different handset. All we could gather from the listing is that the phone comes with Android 10 and 8GB of RAM out of the box. Could this be another Mate 30 version that we still haven't heard about?
