Alleged Photo Of BlackBerry Krypton Leaked

Tyler Lee September 21, 2017

So far all the BlackBerry devices released by TCL have been of the hybrid variety, where the handset sports a touchscreen display, but also comes with a physical keyboard, a feature that many BlackBerry users seem to love most about the brand, and also what makes BlackBerry phones so unique from the competition.

However TCL is expected to launch a new BlackBerry phone with an all-screen design, and a recent photo could give us a clue as to what to expect. A photo of the alleged BlackBerry Krypton has made its way online where it was initially posted on BBM Channels. The image you see above is alleged that of the back portion of the phone, which unfortunately doesn’t tell us much, but we guess it is also the first time we’re seeing the device.

For the most part it seems that the phone will be keeping to the same design language that we’ve seen on other BlackBerry handsets. There does not appear to be a dual camera on the back, so it looks like neither BlackBerry nor TCL will be hopping on that bandwagon anytime soon.

As for specs, what we’ve heard so far is that the Krypton will be a mid-range offering, with the use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. It is also rumored to feature 4GB of RAM, a Full HD display, and a 4,000mAh battery. Take this leak with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we’ll have the details next month when the handset is expected to be launched.

iPhone X Final Production Has Reportedly Not Yet Begun

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When Apple announced the iPhone X, they also revealed that unlike the iPhone 8 that is expected to be released this month, the iPhone X would instead be released in November. This is in line with earlier reports that suggested that the iPhone X could be facing some production issues, and a new report from Barron’s has seemingly confirmed it.

According to Raymond James’s chip analyst Chris Caso, “While our checks are ongoing, initial feedback from our meetings suggests that final production of iPhone X has not yet begun, with production expected to commence in mid-October. That production start is about a month later when compared to expectations a month ago, and about 2 months later than expectations at the end of June.”

Caso’s report is similar to what we have been hearing recently, which is that mass production of the iPhone X could only begin in October or November. As to the reason behind the delay, it is said that the complexity of the iPhone X could be the main reason why, like with the display in which Samsung has to change their manufacturing process just for Apple.

We’ve also heard from other analysts that the iPhone X could still be facing some supply issues well into 2018, so if you are thinking about getting the phone, then maybe you’ll want to pull the trigger ASAP or risk waiting a long time for your order to arrive.

New Photos ‘Confirm’ Pixel 2 Will Ditch The 3.5mm Headphone Jack

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

Yesterday thanks to photos shared by Droid-Life, we managed to get a pretty good look at the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets. However the photos only showed the back of the phone and not the front or its sides, but a recent photo obtained by 9to5Google has shown off the bottom of the phone and confirmed a feature (or lack of a feature).

As you can see in the photo above, whose background and surroundings have been blurred to protect 9to5Google’s source, the base of the phone shows a small hole which is presumably for the microphone, and a charging cable, and what appears to be missing is the 3.5mm headphone jack.

We’ve actually heard rumors in the past that the new Pixel phones could be ditching the headphone jack, and this new photo seems to prove it, or at least lends more credibility to the rumors. However it should be noted that because the rumors are claiming that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be made by HTC and LG respectively, it is unclear if the ditching of the headphone jack is for just the Pixel 2 or for both devices.

We know that this move is definitely not looked upon favorably by many users who feel that cutting the cord might be a bit premature, but either way we should have the official details come 4th of October which is when the phones will be announced.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Could Be Released This October

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

While there have been quite a few good movies released this year, it’s safe to say that many are highly-anticipating the next Star Wars film, which is “The Last Jedi” and is set for a release at the end of the year. So far we’ve seen the teaser trailer which honestly did nothing to sate our curiosity, but a full trailer might not be too far off.

It seems that actor Mark Hamill might have accidentally revealed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s trailer could be coming in October. Hamill responded to a tweet by a fan in which he suggested that the person watches Monday Night Football on the 9th of October “for no reason in particular”. As if this wasn’t cryptic enough, the fact that Hamill deleted the tweet later suggested that it might have some credibility attached to it.

Hamill later tried to backtrack on his earlier tweet by tweeting that he “has no idea” and that “Disney will announce when they are ready”. It is entirely possible that Hamill might have been trolling us with that earlier tweet, although it would be rather mean of him to do so. In any case Polygon notes that a release on the 9th of October makes sense as The Force Awakens trailer was also released around the same time.

Also given that Disney owns ABC and ESPN, it makes sense that the trailers could be released on either network as well. Either way try not to get your hopes up, but hopefully this proves to be true.

Netflix For The Nintendo Switch Reportedly Ready, Awaiting For Approval

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, the way the console was designed made it look like a pretty obvious candidate for various entertainment apps since the console could be brought with gamers on the go. However at the time of announcement, Nintendo said that apps like Netflix would come in time, suggesting that gamers could be in for a wait.

However it turns out that maybe gamers might not have to wait much longer because in a report from GoNintendo, one of their readers KamehamehaX has apparently spoken to a Netflix rep who told them that Netflix for the Switch is “locked and loaded” and that all that remains is approval by Nintendo.

It seems that Netflix has been trying to get permission from Nintendo to launch on the Switch for a while now, and that everything is ready and all Nintendo needs is to give it the greenlight and it will be good to go. We have no idea why Nintendo might be holding back their approval, but since neither Netflix nor Nintendo have officially said anything yet, take it with a grain of salt for now.

However a launch on the Switch would indeed help to draw more players onto the platform since it would show that the console could be used to do more than just play games, like Sony and Microsoft’s offerings in which users can stream music, videos, chat with friends, and more.

Amazon Reportedly Working On Alexa-Powered Smart Glasses

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When Google showed off the Google Glass, many were amazed at the possibilities of the headset, although at that time it seemed that Google might have been a bit early to the market and the public just wasn’t ready. However fast forward a few years later, it seems that smart glasses could be catching on.

We’ve seen how Snap’s Spectacles has been launched with great success, and we are also hearing that companies like Apple could be working on something of their own. Now a report from the Financial Times (paywall; via The Verge) is claiming that Amazon could also be interested and are working on a pair of Alexa-powered smart glasses.

While Amazon might be known to many as retailer, the company has dabbled in a variety of gadgets in the past such as smartphones, tablets, and speakers, just to name a few, but if the report is true, these smart glasses could be Amazon’s first attempt at a wearable. The glasses in question is said to have been designed to resemble a regular pair of glasses and will use bone conduction technology which will do away with the need for headphones or speakers.

It will also not come with a screen or camera (which is good news for privacy-advocates), although we’re not sure that without a screen what would be the point, since Alexa-powered headphones could do exactly the same thing. Perhaps there is more to this than what the report let on, but take it with a grain of salt for now.

2018 iPhones Could Fully Adopt Face ID If Feature Is Well-Received

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

With the iPhone X, Apple has done away with Touch ID in favor of Face ID, a new security feature in which users have their faces instead of their fingerprints scanned to authenticate who they are before the iPhone is unlocked as well as to verify Apple Pay purchases. So the question is will this feature find its way to 2018’s iPhones?

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, it isn’t necessarily a done-deal and that it will hinge on whether or not the feature is well-received. “A key question on the minds of many investors is whether the new iPhone models to be launched in 2018 will support Touch ID (fingerprint recognition). We believe the key factors are: (1) whether or not Face ID (facial recognition) of iPhone X provide a positive user experience.”

Kuo also goes on to add that Touch ID could potentially remain and that Apple could also look to introduce an under-display sensor if they want to give its 2018 iPhones a higher screen-to-body ratio. This was a feature that was initially rumored for the iPhone X, but a recent report claims that Apple decided to not explore the feature because they felt that Face ID was the way to go.

While it does show a lot of promise, Face ID has yet to be put to the test since the iPhone X is only set for a release this coming November, and we’re sure that just like with Touch ID when the feature was first launched, many are rightfully skeptical, so here’s hoping that Apple will prove the critics wrong.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Could Be Announced September 28

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

If you’re after a new GoPro camera, then you might have heard that GoPro has a new camera in the works in the form of the GoPro Hero 6 Black. Photos of the camera have recently leaked and according to the rumors, the camera is said to offer up better video recording than before at 4K resolution with a framerate of 60 FPS.

However the question is when will the camera be announced? According to a new report from Photo Rumors, it seems that the GoPro Hero 6 Black could be announced as soon the 28th of September which is in about a week’s time. The report claims that the camera will also begin selling on the same day so customers will be able to go out and get their hands on it right away if they wish.

In terms of pricing we’re not sure quite sure how GoPro will price its new camera, but we don’t expect it to deviate too much from its predecessor. It could potentially cost a bit more than before, but it should still roughly be in the same ballpark. Photos of the device have also shown that GoPro hasn’t done much to change the design with the Hero 6 Black, or at least nothing major. In any case we should have the official details soon enough, so check back with us soon if you’d like to learn more about it.

T-Mobile And Sprint Merger Talks Have Reportedly Resumed

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

The idea of T-Mobile and Sprint merging isn’t new and has been explored in the past, although it did not pan out. However in recent times there have been talks about the merger being explored again and a report from Reuters has revealed that talks have indeed resumed after SoftBank agreed to give up its majority ownership in Sprint.

For those unfamiliar, Japan’s SoftBank several years ago acquired a majority share in Sprint, and the report from Reuters has revealed the the company is willing to give up that majority share in the carrier if T-Mobile were to agree to the merger in an all-stock deal, although SoftBank is still expected to retain a minority stake in the company.

However it seems that this deal might not be closed anytime soon as the report suggests that neither Sprint nor T-Mobile have come to an agreement, settled on a share exchange ratio, or begun their due diligence on each other. It is also said that should this deal go through, T-Mobile’s current CEO John Legere is expected to run the combined companies.

It will be an interesting merger to say the least and could result in an entity that could be big enough to take on the likes of Verizon, however the deal was stopped in its tracks in the past due to overwhelming regulatory hurdles, and we’re not sure what could be so different this time that could change that, but until then take it with a grain of salt.

Google’s ‘Pixelbook’ Laptop With Pixelbook Pen Stylus Leaked

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

It has been a few years since Google launched their Chromebook Pixel laptops and according to a rumor from last year, the Chromebook Pixel 2 was reportedly cancelled. It turns out the rumors were partially right because while the Chromebook Pixel 2 might be dead, Google isn’t quite done with its own Chromebook laptops yet.

A recent report from Droid-Life has revealed that Google has a new Chromebook that they will be announcing and it will come in the form of the Google Pixelbook. Unfortunately the specs and details of the laptop are still unknown at this point in time, but Droid-Life’s report claims that the laptop will be offered in a silver finish and will come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB SSD storage options, with the 128GB model priced at $1,199, $1,399 for the 256GB model, and $1,749 for the 512GB model.

The laptops are also said to be further augmented in terms of functionality thanks to the Pixelbook Pen, which is an accessory sold separately for $99 that we guess is a stylus that can be used with the laptop. It is said to be pressure sensitive and offers no lag, but we’ll probably have to test that for ourselves before we can say for sure, but it could be a huge deal if it was true.

This is actually not the first time we heard that Google could have a new Chromebook in the works, but whether or not this laptop is powered by Chrome OS or the new “Andromeda” platform is unclear, but those details should be revealed on the 4th of October.
