LG’s take on the Google Assistant-powered smart display is pretty dull

At CES 2018, Google promised a lot of new Assistant-powered speakers are coming, including touch screen speakers like Amazon’s controversial Echo Show. Case in point, Lenovo just unveiled the Smart Display a few days ago, and the announcement was immediately followed by LG debuting its own touchscreen speaker called the ThingQ WK9. But compared with […]

This phone’s fingerprint sensor is its display

The ubiquitous fingerprint sensor: it’s one of the most convenient ways to unlock your smartphone or laptop, but it’s always required its own reserved bastion of space on your device. Always, that is … until now.

Here at CES 2018 I just went hands-on with the first fingerprint sensor that lives UNDER your phone’s display. The Synaptics ClearID module is an optical sensor that sits under the glass of an OLED screen, and it’s making its public debut on  [Read More…]

Lenovo’s Smart Display is the Google Assistant-powered Echo Show we’ve been waiting for

It’s time for Google Assistant to branch out, starting with displays in the home.

Google Home and Amazon Echo match up in both the small and medium speaker segments, but the hardware offerings start to diverge from there.

Amazon has clearly taken the lead with screen-toting assistant speakers with its Echo Show and Echo Spot, with no response from Google in the category. That is, until now.

Leave it to Lenovo of all companies to make a  [Read More…]

The Lenovo Smart Display is the first Google Home I might actually buy

The Lenovo Smart Display is a Google Home with a built-in screen – and that makes it the very first Google Home I might consider buying. While you still control it primarily with your voice, the touchscreen lends much more versatility to the notion of a home assistant: you can check on the Nest Camera monitoring your baby room, start a Duo call with your Pixel-toting friends, or stream the latest video from your favorite YouTuber (ahem). Yes, those  [Read More…]

HTC U12 render shows off display with hardly any bezels

Saying goodbye to the U11’s circa-2015 bezels.

Although it didn’t have a fancy 18:9 display with slim bezels, the HTC U11 was a truly excellent flagship for 2017 that got more right than wrong. Unfortunately, its arguably outdated design (at least from the front) and stiff competition from Samsung, Apple, and Google held it back from making the impression it probably should have. We’re anticipating a proper sequel at some point this year, and a new render has surfaced  [Read More…]

Honor 9 Lite offers four cameras and 18:9 display for under $200

A sleeker, less powerful alternative to the regular Honor 9.

Back in November, Honor took the wraps off of the Honor V10. The V10 (also known as the View 10 in certain markets) is the successor the Honor V9 that came out back in February, and it’s also newer than the regular Honor 9 that was released in the summer. Following the V10, Honor’s latest handset, the Honor 9 Lite, looks to be a less powerful version of the  [Read More…]

Meet Samsung’s powerful mid-rangers for 2018.

The market for mid-range phones is more aggressive than ever, and Samsung is driving this point home as much as it can with its newly announced Galaxy A8 and A8+. These two phones bared all in a recent leak, but we now have confirmation from Samsung on their specifications and release date.

The A8 and A8+ share a lot of the same specs, including Samsung’s Exynos 7885 processor, 32-64GB of storage,  [Read More…]
