HTC Bolt gets pictured in the wild, has specs finally leaked

Soon, the HTC Bolt will become official. Capitalizing on a name from yesteryear, but featuring a design that’s pretty similar to the HTC 10, this device is intriguing because it’s the first from the Taiwanese company to ditch the 3.5mm headset jack. That’s right, HTC is going to follow Motorola, Apple, and LeEco’s lead with this one. The Bolt’s leaked ... Read More »

Samsung Galaxy C9 gets FCC certification, packs a 4,000mAh battery

The Samsung Galaxy C9 has been popping up here and there over the past couple of months, and at this point its release is simply a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’.

First ‘Project Tango’ phone’s release gets pushed back from “Summer” to “Fall”

We’ve seen plenty of products that snap a lens over top of your existing smartphone lens, but nothing quite like this. The Hasselblad True Zoom is a Moto Mod that works with Moto Z phones, and completely replaces your phone camera with a point-and-shoot that gives you 10X optical zoom. It certainly doesn’t come anywhere near approximating the quality of Hasselblad’s ... Read More »

This week in games: Mass Effect Andromeda on display, Deus Ex gets DirectX 12

Here we are, almost a week after Ubisoft sprayed farts into my nose, and I’m still feeling a bit sick. Was it actually farts? Or was it something worse?

For a short while not long ago it looked like Samsung’s original Galaxy Tab S line would not ever be receiving updates to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Thankfully, though, that turned out not to be true. In fact, we’ve seen the update being pushed to the 10.5-inch LTE Tab S in Germany just yesterday. And now it’s time for its smaller ... Read More »

That’s the big takeaway from this morning’s monster jobs number, which blew away analysts’ expectations. Annual wages rose at an annualized rate of 2.6 percent, which is big news in a job market that has experienced a tepid recovery when it ... Read More »
