Moto X5, G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play promo images leak alongside spec details

When it rains, it pours – at least that seems to be the case for Motorola-related leaks today. No less than four different models have been outed, from two of the company’s series. And all of these could conceivably become official at MWC next month. The Moto X5 is probably the strangest of them all, with its iPhone X-like notch and white software button at the bottom of the screen. Oh, and there’s no fingerprint sensor in sight anywhere. Whether that means the X5 will be the second handset ever to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner or not (following the vivo X20 Plus UD) remains to…

Samsung Galaxy S9 packaging reportedly leaks, spec list included

Samsung Galaxy S9 packaging specs leak

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of 2018, and today some spec details for the upcoming Android flagship may have leaked.

A photo that claims to show the retail box for the Galaxy S9 has surfaced. Judging by the gloved hand and the timing of the leak, it’s possible that this box has recently rolled off the production line.

According this packaging, the Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, much like the Galaxy S8 before it. Also included is a Dual Pixel 12-megapixel rear camera with OIS, like the GS8. What’s interesting is that there are two apertures listed, f/1.5 and f/2.4, suggesting that the camera could switch apertures.

Also included in this leaked spec list is an 8-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM 64GB of storage, IP68 water and dust resistance, and wireless charging. In addition to the bundled AKG headphones, the GS9 reportedly comes with stereo speakers that’ve been tuned by AKG.

Rumors have suggested that the Galaxy S9 will be very similar to the Galaxy S8, and this leak appears to back that rumor up. Many of these specs are similar to those included with the Galaxy S8, but there are some notable updates, like the AKG stereo speakers and camera with apertures that can change. There are other new features that may come to the GS9, too, like a Snapdragon 845 processor.

Will you be interested in the Galaxy S9 if this leaked spec list holds true?

Bloomberg: Apple altered Face ID spec to meet iPhone X targets

Ever since the iPhone X was announced, there's been a rumor that the handset will be a rarer commodity than gold dust and the Venus de Milo's arms, combined. That's because the components used to build the device's facial-recognition sensor are so co…
