A leak of the Moto E5 had just popped up. From the leaked image, it seems that it still has the design language of its predecessor. If this leak is legit, you may not be getting a bezel-less Moto E5 this year. It has the same 16:9 aspect ratio display and according to the leaked image, it seems that the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the rear as well. Judging from Moto E4’s launch mid-year in 2017, there could be a fair bit of time before the announcement of its successor. As for the specs, the Moto E5 would most probably have a large battery and a MediaTek chip successor to its previous model as well. There are also rumors of two more variants of the device launching this time around. They’ll be allegedly named Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play. As for the price, we can expect…

In an interview with CNET, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed the purported list of smartphones arriving in 2018 with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 and the rumor of OnePlus 6’s launch this June. “There’s no other choice,” Lau says, referring to the company’s decision to use the Snapdragon 845 for its newest phone. The OnePlus 6 is scheduled to launch late in the second quarter, which ends on June 30. He hadn’t confirmed the OnePlus 6’s name yet, but it’s pretty logical that it might end up being called that way. Lau is also uncertain if OnePlus will launch a second version, like a 6T, in 2018. But given what they have done in the past two years, you could assume that there is a possibility. Lau also shared that OnePlus is open to partnering up with US carriers for sales of its handsets. “If the right opportunity and right timing…

The new SteelSeries Rival 600 is designed to eliminate a common problem for gamers: keeping track of the cursor in mid-air. Sometimes, when a player lifts their mouse off the mat and places it back down, the cursor can jump and skitter across the screen. The Rival 600 compensates for this with a dual-sensor system and 1-to-1 tracking system called TrueMove 3+ that monitors how high the mouse is lifted, making sure the cursor stays in the same place when it’s put back down. The Rival 600 also has customizable interior weights, which users can add or remove to get the desired heaviness they’re most comfortable with. There are eight 4g weights inside, so the mouse can be changed to weigh between 96 grams and 128 grams. The mouse also has a 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor, which is the same as the Rival 310 and Sensei 310 models.…

It seems like gaming accessory manufacturers have been scrambling to release their own takes on the “wirelessly charging mouse pad” concept that was started by Logitech’s Powerplay mouse pad last June. At CES 2018, various takes on the concept from Mad Catz and Corsair were seen. Now, it’s time for Razer to take as shot at it with its new HyperFlux technology. The company is starting off with one pair of products, the Razer Mamba HyperFlux mouse and the Razer Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad, both of which are just updated versions of existing Razer products, complete with the Razer Chroma lighting. The Mamba HyperFlux doesn’t have a battery on board, unlike the original Mamba wireless mouse. It’s powered entirely by the included Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad instead, giving you a wireless mouse without the extra weight of a battery. The mouse pad does still need to be plugged into your…

At CES 2018, SanDisk showed off a prototype of what is supposed to be the world’s smallest 1TB USB-C flash drive. SanDisk’s slimmed-down prototype is far smaller than Kingston’s 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT. In addition, the SanDisk prototype fully embraces USB-C, instead of the old USB 3.0. That means you’ll be able to use it to directly transfer storage to Android phones and computers. With no price or release date announced, for now, this drive is just a prototype. Considering a full-sized 1TB USB-C SSD already costs around $350, it’s less likely that SanDisk’s prototype will be affordable should it become available right now. Source: The Verge
