Google Tensor is a strike for independence

Google Tensor is a strike for independence

Google may have given us the first official glimpse of the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but it's the Google Tensor chipset inside the upcoming Android 12 phones that's arguably more exciting. The company's first homegrown SoC, or system-on-chip, for smartphones, it sees Google take a long-rumored step down a path Apple has already followed.

Motorola Edge 20 series announced to cover all price tiers

Motorola Edge 20 series announced to cover all price tiers

Motorola has littered the smartphone market with quite a number of models on all tiers, but it seems to be lacking in devices that are meant to compete at the very top. The X and Z series seems to have been silently retired from that role, and Motorola's most recent G100 surprisingly tries to fill in those big shoes. That said, the company is far from done and has just announced the newest members of its young Edge family, led by the Motorola Edge 20 Pro and its periscope lens camera.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 successor leak reveals key spec

Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 successor leak reveals key spec

Qualcomm's branding for Snapdragon chips doesn't always make sense. The Snapdragon 810 was succeeded by the 820/821, but that was followed by the 835, in turn. After the Snapdragon 865, however, came the 888, with the 870 following not far behind. In that light, there's still some debate whether the next Qualcomm premium chip will be the Snapdragon 895 or 898, but regardless of its name, it will have one upgrade that could set the tone for next year's smartphones.

MediaTek Kompanio 1300T wants to give tablets a leg up

MediaTek Kompanio 1300T wants to give tablets a leg up

Tablets haven't become obsolete in the advent of phablets, as many market watchers and analysts previously predicted. In fact, they experienced a resurgence along with PCs, in no small part thanks to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on life, work, and school. In contrast to the likes of the iPad Pro, however, most Android tablets are often seen mostly as content consumption devices rather than portable computers for both play and work. MediaTek wants to change that perception with its new Kompanio 1300T chipset designed specifically for devices with large screens.

ZTE Axon 30 5G with under-display camera launched in China

ZTE Axon 30 5G with under-display camera launched in China

After countless leaks and an official teaser or two, ZTE has finally taken the covers off the world's second under-display camera smartphone. After the disappointing reality of its first UDC smartphone, it would be understandable if consumers held off on the Axon 30 5G UDC until the reviews come in. At least on paper, however, the phone might have enough going for it, especially for those who aren't big selfie fans anyway.

BlackBerry 5G smartphone is apparently still on the table

BlackBerry 5G smartphone is apparently still on the table

It's been a while since we've heard anything related to BlackBerry. After it stopped making its own smartphones, the company switched to licensing its brand to other smartphones makers like TCL. News on that front has died down as well, especially after TCL decided to end its line of BlackBerry-branded phones. Fans of the iconic brand might still be holding on to a little hope, especially now that another licensee has broken its silence to prove that a 5G-capable BlackBerry phone is still in the works, even if a launch date is still up in the air.

Nokia XR20 rugged “life-proof” phone doesn’t look like a tank

As it promised, HMD Global has just announced a phone that it says won't ever need a case. That's primarily because the Nokia XR20 is an honest-to-goodness rugged phone. Unlike similar phones from the likes of CAT, however, the mid-range phone won't make you feel awkward pulling it out of your pocket in public. The company, however, is going the extra mile and announcing other phones, including a modern take on the highly popular Nokia 6310 classic.

OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS is built on top of OPPO ColorOS

OnePlus Nord 2 OxygenOS is built on top of OPPO ColorOS

The line that divides OnePlus and its distant cousin OPPO is becoming thinner and blurrier. Not long after OnePlus CEO Pete Lau took up a key position in OPPO, OnePlus announced that it would be using OPPO's ColorOS instead of its own HydrogenOS for Chinese models. It didn't take long for the two companies' software 000s to merge, and the first fruits of this unification of OxygenOS and ColorOS can be found but not seen in the new OnePlus Nord 2.

Moto G100 is now available in the US

Moto G100 is now available in the US

Motorola's smartphone branding strategy seems to be all over the place. In the past, it was easy to distinguish between E, G, X, and Z lines, but these days it almost seems like Motorola is using the G brand for everything. Originally meant for its mid-range line, the company announced a Moto G100 a few months back bearing rather high-end features. That unexpected premium phone has finally made its way to the US and has an equally unexpected price tag.
