PS5: what will the Sony PlayStation 5 be like and when will we see it?

New game consoles are always exciting, especially when the console in question is the PS5, Sony’s fifth installment of the PlayStation consoles. And while we’d like to stoke the rumor flames and tell you there’s a console coming in the near future – it’s hard to say when we’ll see the PS5 (or PlayStation 5 if you prefer). Here’s some good news: while we’re not sure when the PS5 is coming, Sony

LG V30 will probably cost $749.99

LG V30 will probably cost $749.99

LG unveiled the V30 two days ago at IFA in Berlin, but the company has so far provided very few details about its availability and price in the US. Sure, we know that all the big carriers will offer it (and Sprint’s even going for the V30+ model with more internal storage), but none of the networks have said anything about a release date other than “in early fall”. And no prices have been mentioned at all. Thankfully though, LG may have already revealed how much the V30 is going to cost stateside. Remember that Twitter contest that the company started yesterday,…

DeutscheBank: Anniversary OLED iPhone will be delayed until next year

AppleiOSRumors Analysts are becoming increasingly sure that the new OLED iPhone will be delayed – Deutsche Bank joins KGI in predicting that supply shortages of key components will not allow the overhauled iPhone to launch alongside the iPhone 7s. The 7s will be an incremental improvement over the current iPhone 7 without much novelty. The OLED-packing iPhone (aka iPhone 8), is a much bigger upgrade. The OLED screen is just one of the new components, rumors also suggest 3D sensing cameras and brand new 3D touch. We may be saying goodbye to the Home button and screen bezels with this update too.…

Galaxy Note7 units still in use in Australia will be disconnected from the mobile networks on December 15

Last month Samsung went further than ever in trying to ensure that all Galaxy Note7 units sold in New Zealand are returned following its discontinuation of the device. Working with the carriers over there, the company has basically shut down mobile network access for those Note7 handsets still in the wild. This move has apparently proved successful, since Samsung is now getting ready to do the exact same thing in neighboring Australia.

Getting the full picture about the LG V20’s pricing and availability in the US is proving a tad more complicated than we would have expected. T-Mobile revealed the first piece of the puzzle earlier today, saying it would start selling the handset on October 28. Yet the magenta carrier remained mum on any pricing information. And now AT&T follows suit, in that it also acknowledges it will offer the V20. Oh, and this carrier has published

Mi 5s will have 5.5-inch display

If you recall, there were reports last month that Xiaomi is working on a successor to the Mi 5, dubbed Mi 5s. At that time, it was being said that the screen-size of the new phone will be same as that of the Mi 5, i.e, 5.15-inch. However, according to a new leak, the Mi 5s will sport a comparatively larger display of 5.5-inches. Other specs that the leak reveals are in line with last month’s

All Moto devices in 2016 will have fingerprint scanners, Lenovo exec says

Despite basically pioneering the concept of a smartphone with a built-in fingerprint scanner with the Atrix 4G back in 2011, Motorola hasn’t been quick to jump back on this train last year, when such sensors have been featured in pretty much every high-end Android device. That will change in 2016, however. Chen Xudong, SVP of Lenovo and president for Lenovo China and Asia Pacific, has revealed that all Moto-branded handsets launching
