IFA is usually the time of the year when you can expect several new gadgets to grace the face of the Internet (and then the world a little later down the line), and this year is no exception. Acer today unveiled a new smartphone that will be able to take full advantage of Windows 10 Mobile's Continuum feature and seamlessly shift between mobile and desktop modes.

These days, we're seeing a lot of new entrants in the smartphone making business, mainly aimed at making budget phones that look good and don't cost an arm and a leg. Kickstarter is also a popular choice these days to launch these products, and it makes significant sense. A new project graced the crowd-funding website today with the name of Robin, which is a new smartphone courtesy of Nextbit. However, it stands out from all the rest in several other aspects, and that's what we're going to take a look at.
A new leak has all but confirmed camera specs of the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus which are scheduled for unveiling at Apple's September 9th event in San Francisco.
Coin, the electronic card that aimed at solving all your credit/debit/loyalty card woes, has just received a major hardware update in the form of the second generation of the product, aptly named Coin 2.0. Among a variety of enhancements, Coin 2.0 adds support for NFC-based payments, making it all that better for daily use.
According to a rumor, Apple plans to add new capabilities to Apple Watch through "smart bands", which will be able to add new sensors to your Apple Watch, including those for blood oxygen, respiratory rate, blood pressure and body temperature.
When the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were launched last year, soon after their public availability both devices became targets of a widespread scandal dubbed "Bendgate", especially the larger of the two, the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus was found to be susceptible to getting bent under pressure, in some cases even when under as little as normal use pressure.
For the last couple of years, any and all iPhone launches have been marked with a myriad of leaks, most of which turn out to be true, thanks to the Cupertino company's super leaky supply chain. Back in March, it was rumored that Apple would go for a System-in-Package (SiP) architecture for the upcoming iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, similar to what it did for the Apple Watch. Now, a new leak of (allegedly) schematics has surfaced for the iPhone 6s which proves that the Cupertino-based company has opted for SiP in favor of the traditional Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
It feels like Samsung has been launching new phones left right and center, and today they've announced a new one. The freshly-unveiled G9198 is aimed at the Chinese market and is unlike most Android phone out there, because Sammy's gone old-school, again. Yes, the G9198 is a clamshell flip phone with dual screens and an actual, physical T9 keypad. Details to follow.
Lenovo has gained a lot of fame recently for making quality laptops, among other things. However, a recently-uncovered "feature" in its laptops, allows Lenovo to install their own software on the laptops - without the user's permission and/or knowledge - even if a clean install has been performed using a Windows DVD or flash disk.
