  • If you like your Android updates to be as timely as possible (at least for Samsung), then you might be wary of picking up an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+, given the fact that their predecessors were long ignored by their maker on the software front. But if you don't care about any of that and just don't want to pick an S8 or S8+ up from a carrier, Best Buy already has some deals for you on the unlocked units. These launched stateside at the end of May, but it looks like some people have already returned some phones without actually having used them. That's because Best Buy is offering "open box" deals on both, with the devices said to be in excellent condition, looking brand new and coming with all the original accessories. If you go this route, the unlocked S8 can be yours for just $637.99, which is $87 less than the normal price of $724.99. For the S8+, you'll only pay $725.99, saving a cool $99 in the process.

  • Samsung's hugely popular J-series of smartphones is due for a refresh and by all accounts an official announcement should happen any day now - the Galaxy J7 (2017) and J5 (2017) even starred in hands-on videos, yet there's no word from Samsung on the matter.

  • Motorola's upcoming Moto Z2 Play has been leaking a lot lately, and a few days ago one such leak has revealed that it should become official on June 1 (tomorrow), at least in Brazil. In the meantime, Motorola's arm in Canada has teased an announcement for tomorrow too. So it's pretty much a given that the Z2 Play will finally be unveiled in a matter of hours. As usual in these cases, one retailer simply couldn't wait (or got the embargo ending wrong) and has listed the new, still-unannounced handset on its website. This time it's happened in Brazil, which makes sense since that's a big market for Motorola. Aside from bringing us the official-looking image you can see above, the listing has once again confirmed all of the Z2 Play's previously leaked specs. The device has a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED touchscreen, a 12 MP rear camera with Dual Pixel and laser autofocus, dual-LED flash, and 4K video recording, and a 5 MP selfie cam with its own dual-LED flas..

  • Apple doesn't usually announce new hardware at its annual WorldWide Developer Conference (WWDC) held in June, but this year things might be different. We've already heard that it will unveil a revamped MacBook lineup, a new iPad Pro, and the oft-rumored smart speaker with Siri built-in on that occasion. Today a new report says the Siri speaker has entered production, following a very long development period. The information allegedly comes from unnamed "people familiar with the matter". Once again it's revealed that an official debut at WWDC is likely, but even if it does get presented on June 5 the speaker will only start shipping "later in the year". Unlike Amazon's Echo line of smart speakers and Google's Home, the Siri device will offer "virtual surround sound" and, of course, deep integration with Apple's other products and services. That's kind of the point, since Apple feels that if it doesn't step into this nascent market people who hav..
