ASUS ZenFone 6 Is Notch-less, Has A Flip-up Selfie Camera

Camera bump and notch are perhaps the worst thing to happen in smartphone design. While we see no end to the camera bump trend, there is hope for a notch-free world. It is heartening that everyone else, except for Apple, is trying their best to eliminate the notch. ASUS ZenFone 6 is one of the latest entrants to join the on-going notch-less revolution. Instead of pop-up camera and slide-and-flip system, ZenFone 6 chose to adopt a flip-up camera. Continue reading ASUS ZenFone 6 Is Notch-less, Has A Flip-up Selfie Camera

Google Pixel 3a Is Official, Has No Notch And Gets The Headphone Jack

Well, the much rumored “more affordable” version of the Pixel phone, Pixel 3a, has been made official and it might just appeal to notch-haters because, it ain’t got one. But be warned though.

Rendered Images And Video Of Motorola Razr Folding Phone

We do not know who originated these renders of the supposed Motorola Razr Folding Phone that Motorola is rumored to be introducing. We do know that the renders were posted on /leaks, but we also hear that they were making the rounds on Weibo prior to appearing on /leaks. Weibo is the confusing source. If you hit up Weibo, there are a ton of these images and in the good’ol give-no-shit about IP fashion, almost every poster on Weibo stamped their name on the renders, claiming as theirs and so, we really do not know who was the true originator.

Renders Of iPhone XI Confirms Triple Camera, “Glass Camera Bump”

New iPhone or not, it does not excite me anymore. If there’s no breakthrough in technology and/or design, it is no different from the horde of Android devices out there. Don’t tell me how gorgeous the phone is or the exquisite materials because, at the end of the day, 9 out of 10 people would shove it into a case, hiding it beauty. Fact.
