New Leaks Show Google Drops Pixel XL 2, Confirm iPhone 8 Design

We will probably not see the direct sequel to the popular Pixel XL phone from Google, according to fresh leaks from Android Police and a few other sources. Android Police says Google ‘has shelved’ plans to release one of the Pixel phones, codenamed ‘Muskie’. People expected it to succeed the Pixel XL, released last year. AP says the leak is very likely to be correct, and ‘rates it 9 out of 10 on their rumor scale’. The website is actually known to be a reliable source of information, so there is very little doubt here.

Apple IPhone 8 Rumor Roundup: All You Need to Know

Apple’s iPhone will celebrate its tenth anniversary since it was first revealed by Steve Jobs back in 2007. The device initially emerged as a revolution in the world of cellphones, but in the last couple of years, the Cupertino company has been using a ‘better safe than sorry’ strategy. There hasn’t been much difference between iPhones 6, 6S and 7, making the fans rather cautious about the future of the lineup. As the anniversary comes closer, the expectations and rumors grow like mushrooms after rain. Numerous leaks point at a completely refreshed device, which will abandon the familiar approach to the phone. Rumors suggest a radically redesigned edge-to-edge display with minimal top and bottom bezels. Kind of what Samsung did with its Galaxy S8 model, but it’s not clear how Apple will tackle the placement of the Touch ID. The sensor is rumored to be built directly into the display,…

This Iphone 8 Leak Is the Biggest and Most Exciting One Yet

Samsung should bask in the limelight while it still can. Because if the iPhone 8 shapes up to be anywhere close to these leaks, it will definitely steal the show later this year. Fan site iFanr has gotten a hold of a schematic diagram of this iPhone X or iPhone 8 and the implications are going to be ground breaking. So whether Apple’s tenth anniversary iPhone comes late or not, it will be putting the Android world on notice and might set the design trend for the years to come. Those expecting Apple to adopt an edge-to-edge curved design might be a bit disappointed. But those who do agree with LG’s criticism of such curved edges will probably rejoice. There is still a tiny, though insignificant, bit of bezel, about 2.6 mm wide, where the screen usually slopes down on a 2.5D curve. Other than that, however, there is nothing…

Apple Confirms A Huge iPhone 8 Rumor With This Telling Samsung Order

The iPhone 8 is, according to rumor at least, going to be a revolutionary shift in the iPhone and even in Apple’s design philosophy. And while not all the rumors are confirmed, a major order Apple has placed with Samsung proves that at least a few of them may be true. MacRumors is reporting, via the Nikkei, that Apple has placed an order for 70 million OLED iPhone screens for the upcoming phone. OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes, have a lot of advantages over the traditional LED screens; they’re thinner, lighter, brighter, have a better contrast ratio, and, most importantly, don’t need a backlight to be visible. That means rumors that Apple will be shucking even more weight and width off the iPhone 8 are true, if unsurprising. More interesting, though, is that OLEDs can take up more surface area, lending credence to the rumor that the iPhone 8 will…
