What we know (almost for sure) is that on October 4th, Google is very, very likely to unveil new generation Pixel devices, which should neatly expand upon the Pixel and the Pixel XL released last year. Google has appeared to have launched a marketing campaign, by way of a landing page with the text “Thinking about changing phones? Stay tuned for more on October 4.” Obviously, Google would not want to reveal everything until the official unveiling event.
According to a report recently published by Netherlands based website iCulture, the so-called iPhone 8 will not actually go by that name. The report states that the most highly awaited iPhone model ever will be called the iPhone X (or the iPhone Edition). Just to be perfectly clear, iCulture points out that there will also be an iPhone 8, but it will be used for what everybody is expecting to be the iPhone 7s devices. To be exact, it appears that apart from the iPhone X/Edition model, there will also be an iPhone 8 and an iPhone 8 Plus.
According to a report recently published by the Wall Street Journal, Apple is said to be planning to officially announce three new iPhone models, as well as a new Apple Watch with LTE connectivity next month, specifically on September 12. The report also stated that the tech giant is looking to take full advantage of the Steve Jobs Theater located in its new campus. However, if construction is not completed in the next couple of weeks, the company may decide to hold the unveiling in another alternate location.
Leaker extraordinaire Evan Blass has recently posted in Twitter that Google is planning to officially announce its new generation Pixel smartphones on October 5th of this year. Blass also made mention that both the new standard size Pixel and its bigger Pixel XL sibling will be equipped with Qualcomm’s upgraded processor, the Snapdragon 836, the same chip that HTC had referred to in its filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
According to leaker extraordinaire Evan Blass (as posted on Twitter), Samsung may be preparing to give loads of extra goodies for those who decide to preorder its upcoming newest phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 8.
According to a report recently published by CNBC, it is quite possible that Apple will be formally announcing its upcoming new iPhone devices -- namely the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7S, and the iPhone 7S Plus -- along with the Apple Watch 3 during its usual iPhone event next month.
Apart from its much awaited V30 phablet, there is talk that LG is also planning to release a V30 Plus variant. According to a report recently published by ETNews, a high ranking official from the South Korean tech giant has apparently offered information that an upgraded edition is also coming besides the regular V30.
On Asus’ official website itself, four models of the tech giant’s ZenFone 4 smartphone were recently leaked. We should already be used to the idea of multiple editions of a particular ZenFone release. A year ago after all, the company’s ZenFone 3 smartphones included various specific variants, including the ZenFone 3 Deluxe, the ZenFone 3 Laser, and more recently back in January early this year, the ZenFone 3 Zoom (which sports a cool dual camera configuration).
Without meaning to, AT&T may have inadvertently confirmed the Galaxy S8 Active smartphone, despite the fact that Samsung is yet to formally unveil the device. For those not familiar with the South Korean phone maker’s Active series of handsets, they are basically special editions of the company’s flagship offerings (particularly the Galaxy S lineup of smartphones) that are generally more rugged and tough.
At the start of last weekend, the Wall Street Journal has published a report stating that Sprint had proposed a merger deal with Charter Communications that would effectively place the combined business entity under the control of Masayoshi Son, the chairman of SoftBank (which is the parent company of Sprint). Charter, however, has said that it is still looking to take full advantage of its existing MVNO deal with Verizon Wireless, and claimed that it is not planning to acquire Sprint.
