Have you heard about Coolpad? No? Neither have we, but I think you should know about this smartphone brand, especially if affordability is the key consideration when buying a smartphone. That said, Coolpad has a new “flagship” smartphone called Legacy that is now selling in the U.S. for, wait for this… just $129.99 (!). Looking at the price, obviously, you don’t expect it to be the kind of flagship like, say, OnePlus 7 Pro. I’d say it is a flagship of budget smartphones.

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

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. Continue reading Rendered Images And Video Of Motorola Razr Folding Phone

A Patent Reveals Xiaomi May Be Planning To Pull Off A Reverse Notch

What you see here is Xiaomi’s latest take of how to not share the display with the front-facing camera module. Yes. You are not seeing things here. Xiaomi actually has this crazy idea of a what essentially is a reverse notch, as revealed by a patent it has filed. Instead, carving a spot for the camera module, which result in the much loathe notch, Xiaomi wants to put the front-facing camera outside of the phone body, resulting in a rather awkward protrusion.
