  • Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e and S10 Plus

    This week opens the year's most frantic smartphone launch period. Before the month is through, we'll see devices from Sony, LG and Nokia, just to name a few. But before any of those devices are tied to exorbitant mobile network packages with SMSes you'll never use, Samsung will steal the limelight. As always, the Korean firm will launch its wares, namely the Samsung Galaxy S10 family, in San Francisco a few days before Barcelona's MWC 2019 smartphone expo. And yes, "family" because the company's planning more than just a duo this time. How many phones are we talking? According to a flood of rumours,...

But while some phones are almost confirmed to be showcased at the event, other manufacturers haven't quite made their intentions concrete. We take a look at the devices we'll definitely see launched in Spain in February, while rating the likelihood of the others making an appearance. Sony Xperia XZ4 Sony is set for a big...

  • LG G8 will have two screens, thanks to an attachment

    LG refuses to launch anything close to ordinary, and according to a new report, the LG G8 smartphone will stick to this trend. CNET reported on Thursday that the speculatively-named LG G8 will have an optional second screen attachment, that will work more like a case with a display than the rear-screened ZTE Nubia X. This also means that the phone won't fold, suggesting that LG's working on another, separate device that will pivot. It's not clear how the second screen will interact with the G8, how it will connect to the phone itself, or if it will have its own power...
