Surface Phone Components and Detailed Renders Show a New Face of the Hinge, USB Port

By James A.

The past few days have brought new hope for the few Windows Mobile and Surface Phone fans, with numerous renders and patents popping up. They all show the same thing: a dual display smartphone, that gets turned into a tablet, with a minimal hinge action. Today we have even more detailed patent aspects, through the renders shown below.

These are actually an extended leak from the previous patent image cache, but this time in more minute details. We see a special USB Type-C port variety, a low profile one, that would fit on a slimmer device. The level of detail is quite impressive here and it’s meant to keep the device as slim as possible when folded. Then there’s a Surflink connector, also with a low profile and it’s supposed to connect the ribbon cables of each device half.

A closer look reveals mentions of OLED panels, flat glass edge rotations and translations, plus cable routing through hinges. We can even see a section of the mechanism and small cogs that make the whole thing fold. While the two screens have flat edges, that really join together with zero seam, there are intricate mechanisms below that let you “part the seas” and use the two screens separately after splitting them.

 

It seems that Microsoft really went out of its way to make this device foldable, but without using flexible panels or materials, just cogs. I have a feeling this device won’t be ready for CES 2018, or MWC 2018, but rather for BUILD 2018 in Spring. I’m sure that we’ll also see hands on leaks by then. Still, are people still enthusiastic about this product?

New Surface Pro: No USB-C port, minor design refresh revealed in leaked images

By Sebastian Anthony

Evleaks

Images of the next Surface Pro leaked out yesterday—and it seems Surface chief Panos Panay wasn’t lying when he said “there’s no such thing as the Surface Pro 5“: Microsoft’s next lappable tablet will simply be called Surface Pro without a descriptive numeral.

The Surface Pro images leaked by @evleaks show a device that is slimmer and has slightly more rounded edges than the Surface Pro 4, but otherwise it seems mostly unchanged. Just like the new Surface Laptop, there’s still no USB-C connector. The leaked images suggest there will be some new keyboard and pen colours, though.

Another iPhone 8 leak hints at wireless charging

By Romain Dillet

Slowly but surely, we’re getting hints about the next iPhone from multiple leaks. Today’s new image from @OnLeaks shows that the next iPhone could feature wireless charging. In this iPhone schematic, it’s easy to spot a rounded surface at the back of the device, indicating that there should be a conductive surface to charge the device. I know what you’re thinking… Read More

iPad Pro 2 Rumored to Debut Next Week

By James A.

The rumor of the week, possibly of the month has to do with a sudden iPad release. If you think there’s no such thing, guess again, since Apple is now said to be prepping the iPad Pro 2 for debut next week. Of course that’s a rumor, but let’s see what info we have right now.

Industry insiders are the one with the info and honestly speaking, the 12.9 inch iPad Pro was overdue an upgrade. The OG model came in 2015 and rumors about a Spring release of the successor this year came a while ago. The analysts who mentioned the release from next week are quoting reputable sources and mention a time frame between Monday, March 20 and Friday, March 24. Apple was previously rumored to hold the event early next month, judging by some availability calendars.

There’s a slight chance that Apple won’t even hold a special event for the release, opting instead to just send out a press release. We’re actually expecting a trio or quartet of new iPads, so it would be odd to see them all debut without an event. If the conference does take place, it will probably also bring us a new Apple TV and maybe a new iPhone SE.

In the end Apple could split the new iPads launches into two: iPad Pro 2 next week and the affordable 9.7 incher and 10.5 incher in the fall during the iPhone 8 event. Or maybe even at WWC 2017…

iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Case Reveals Fresh Format for the Apple Slate Series

By James A.

After leaking what seems to be a launch date for the new iPads, now we have some extra intel about the slates. It would appear that a Spanish accessory distributor leaked out info about a case for a 10.5 inch iPad.

The info is edited quite a bit, so it won’t reveal too much about the accessory or the device. The document titles put the 10.5 inch size within the iPad Pro lineup. We don’t have actual case sizes and everything seems to be in pending phase here. We haven’t seen many iPad leaks lately, other than speculations about the use of OLED panels, diagonals and CPUs from the Axx series.

Apple is said to unveil a second gen 12.9 inch iPad Pro, an affordable 9.7 incher for education and a refreshed 7.9 inch iPad Mini. They’ll debut with the brand new format of a 10.5 incher, that should replace the 9.7 inch iPad Pro in the lineup. What’s clear is that at least a new 12.9 inch iPad is needed, as it hasn’t been refreshed since September 2015.
