The iPhone 11 Pro vs. the competition: Battle of the cameras
The new flagship iPhone is here, and Apple's added the word "Pro" to its name — the first time Apple's used that word for a handset. And no wonder: The camera on the iPhone 11 Pro is a triple camera setup that takes nine images with each press of the shutter and uses a neural engine to assemble the best picture possible. It'll need to deliver in order to keep pace with rival flagships like the Pixel 3 (or next month's Pixel 4) and the Galaxy S10 or Note 10. Where else does it shine? And where does it fall behind? Check out our table below for the essential specs, and join us later this month for our full review.
Every major flagship always has to come in two sizes now, so it's no surprise that we're looking at yet another XL Pixel model. Pixel 4 vs . the competition : The camera battle intensifies.
Once more, Google is giving us two flagship phone sizes to choose from. But this time, the company's releasing them under its own brand, Pixel . Google's 5.5- inch phone is a lot like its little sibling, but how do its specs stand up to other large handsets?
Every major flagship always has to come in two sizes now, so it's no surprise that we're looking at yet another. This handset differs from its in size, but has the same camera setup. However, the big phone field gets more intense every year, especially since Apple went all-in with its " " models. For the skinny on all the relevant specs, check out the table below. For our final verdict, keep an eye out for Engadget's full review of the later this month.

Hands-on video highlights Google’s striking new color option for the Pixel 4
We're most likely still about a month out from the launch of Google's next flagship smartphone, but leaks have been springing up at a furious pace in recent days. Just last week, we wrote about the first Pixel 4 hands-on video, and in the process of publishing the post, we had to issue an update to include a second video that had begun making the rounds while we were writing. Ever since then, the floodgates haven't closed. The latest leak comes

146 inches, 8K, foldable: at CES 2018, TVs still do not make in the half measure
As with every edition of the Consumer Electronics Show, the largest exhibition in the world dedicated to new technologies, major TV manufacturers are in the bidding war to reaffirm their power in a competitive market.
A CES without big TVs - what I say, huge TVs - would not be an ESC. Each year, the world's largest electronics show is an opportunity for market leaders to roll up their sleeves to determine who has the biggest biceps. A competition is thus organized informally each year: the largest, the most original, the most powerful, the whole manufactured in the respect of the current modes and technological constraints.
In this 2018 edition, two behemoths compete clearly in the ring: LG and Samsung, which offer two different technologies, even if close enough one on the other - the OLED for LG, andLG for Samsung. We will be likely to complete this article in the coming days in case of additional announcements from other manufacturers.
's 8-inch OLED 88-inch Even before the start of the press conferences, which for the most part begin two days before the official opening of the show, LG has unveiled a gigantic 8-inch 8-inch OLED display, blasting the premiere of an ad to Samsung. If we had already seen larger 8K screens, this one is the first of its size to use OLED technology. For an image of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels, displayed on 223 centimeters in diameter, it required more than 33 million pixels.
LGThe "wall" 4K, 146 inches of Samsung
This Monday, so it was the turn of Samsung to enter the track with "The Wall", an ultra-thin 4K screen measuring no less than ... 146 inches, or about 370 centimeters. Yes, it's a wall, in a way.

To achieve the ultimate combo "finesse + size + image quality", Samsung has used MicroLED technology. This allows you to compose a screen with as many LEDs as the image has pixels. As is the case on OLED tiles, each MicroLED is self-emissive, and eliminates any backlight system as required by the LCD. But the real added value of this MicroLED TV is its modularity: made up of a hundred or so panels of about ten centimeters, so it can technically be "expanded to infinity", by adding panels, while by displaying an Ultra HD image.
For the moment, however, it is quite difficult to lend it a higher than the OLED and QLED with the naked eye. Samsung plans to market The Wall in France in the spring, but of course we must expect prices that reach peaks.Even further, with the
"windable" OLED TV The "Wall" barely unsheathed, LG replicated with a 65-inch UHD roll-up screen. Yes, to wrap like a poster or a projection screen. Said like that, technology may seem like a gadget, but one can easily imagine that a foldable screen could fit perfectly in a meeting room or in any place where carrying giant screens can be tedious.
The South Korean firm had already presented several years ago a first prototype of the kind, but much smaller size (12 inches). It is therefore more ambitious by its size - about 224 centimeters -, but also by its concept, since it folds into a small design box that could be attached to the wall.
If it still comes under the prototype, LG hopes to market it by 2020.
Something to add? Say it in comment.
iPhone 11 Pro Max just obliterated the Pixel 4 XL in a real-life speed test .
We knew before the Pixel 4 launched that the phone would ship with the same Snapdragon 855 chip that powers many of this year’s Android flagships rather than the newer 855+ that Qualcomm launched a few months ago. That meant the Snapdragon 855 would be no match for the iPhone 11’s A13 chip in benchmark tests — the chip can’t compete with the A12 that powers last year's iPhones, either. So it’s no surprise that in real-life speed tests, the iPhone 11 just mops the floor with Google’s best phone ever. It’s deja-vu all over again.
