Motorola sends out press invites for June 27, Possible Moto Z2 Unveil

June is and will be a good month for Moto fans as Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched and at the same time is bringing several other smartphones in the market soon.

To make it clearer, the company has already launched the Moto Z2 Play and Moto E4 lineup this month. And the company has sent out invites for an event that will be happening on June 21 in Brazil. Well, Motorola is not done there, they have yet again sent out press invites for an event to be held on June 27. So with all that has been happening, we are expecting to see some more smartphones from the company soon. Coming back to the press invite, it doesn't reveal anything concrete.

The invite just says "Motorola is back" and we can't make out what the company is actually planning to launch. However, the invite does show a girl with a Moto smartphone in her hand. And we may have something to look forward to as we are now basing our assumptions on that. Motorola does have several smartphones like Moto G5s+, Moto X4, Moto Z2 and Z2 Force in its pipeline, but going by the phone in the model's hand it looks very slim and sleek. Thus looking at the design of the phone it is very similar to the many leaked images of Moto Z2. So the event that is happening might put the spotlight on Moto Z2.



With TalkBack you can tap to hear selected text on Android

Did you ever recognize that you could set your Android device to read selected textual content returned to you with a simple faucet? this isn't always a new characteristic, it hit some time lower back with the talkback 5.2 update in April. and although we knew it was there, we failed to truly realize how cool it would emerge as being. now that we've had the chance to try it out for ourselves, If you get to know more about this feature sure you'll turn this precise feature on, whether you've got a visual incapacity or not. and, on Android O it has a small twist.

We've noticed references to Select to Speak in teardowns going back for a few versions, so the feature has been in testing for a little while. But we can confirm that it launched officially as of TalkBack 5.2, where it was included in the changelog.

It's not that difficult to get things set up. To enable the feature you just go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Select to Speak, and there flip the on switch for the feature. When it is active, you'll see a new floating action button depicted with a voice bubble overlaid on your screen, like the one above. When you'd like to have something read back to you just tap the button, drag to cover the area you'd like to have read, and your ears are treated to the sweet robotic sounds of Android's text to speech. You can tap and hold the button to move it wherever you would like, but for the feature to work, you will have to give up some portion of your visible screen.



Long delayed YotaPhone 3 is announced; price start at $350

YotaPhone 3 was officially unveiled in North China. For those unfamiliar with the YotaPhone series, these devices have a dual-screen design thanks to the E Ink display found on the back of each handset. The YotaPhone 3 will sport an AMOLED panel in front. The handset was expected to launch last year, but some problems with the company's finances delayed the release.

It is unknown whether or not a U.S. release of the YotaPhone 3 will be in the cards. Back in 2015, the YotaPhone 2 was listed on Indiegogo with plans to launch it in North America. However, the listing was pulled and the North American launch cancelled. At the time, the reason given for this action was a delay in receiving the units from the manufacturer.

The YotaPhone 3 will be available with 64GB and 128GB of native storage. Pricing will be the equivalent of $350 USD and $450 USD, respectively. Right now, the device is expected to be offered in Russia and in China.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE and Yota Devices had partnered up in the third quarter of 2015 for the Yota Phone 3, and originally a production run of only 100,000 units was planned. But even that limited number of phones failed to make it into the hands of consumers in any market.

Now that the YotaPhone 3 has been unveiled, the next step is to watch for the dates when pre-orders will be taken. Sure, the phone will be fashionably late, but it just might provide an experience that for some buyers will be worth the delay.



Samsung's Note 8 may look just like the Galaxy S8

Samsung will release a Galaxy Note 8, that much is on the record. If you're wondering what the phone will look like, you might just need to take a look at the Galaxy S8.

Video of what claims to be a Note 8 display panel appeared online recently on Chinese social network Weibo (via Slashleaks). Since CNET cannot independently confirm that the display belongs to the Note 8, it's still best to take this rumor with a grain of salt.

The takeaways? The display panel in the video looks a whole lot like the display panel of the S8. It's hard to tell since the video doesn't give us much scale, but it looks like the alleged panel is a little bit wider and taller than the S8 with the edges slightly less rounded. Rumors say that the Note 8 could be 6.4-inches, which would make it slightly bigger than the Galaxy S8 Plus (6.2-inches).

The design similarities shouldn't be too surprising. When the Galaxy S8 released, Samsung focused a lot of attention on its new "Infinity Display," which is the shrunken-bezel look that separates it from previous the company's phones like the Galaxy S7. What this leak suggests is that the Note 8 could also adopt the Infinity Display design, and that Samsung might not limit it to be exclusive to the S8. After all, the Note line is Samsung's premium flagship line, and what says "premium smartphone" like a big beautiful display?

The Note 8 also has the task of repairing buyer's trust after its predecessor, the Note 7, was recalled twice due to faulty exploding batteries. After that debacle, Samsung needs to pack this new phone with features as it works to repair the damage to the product line.

The Note 8 will reportedly hit in August, approximately one year after the release of the Note 7. Stay tuned to CNET as we get closer to the phone's release, or check out our Note 8 rumor roundup here.



Verizon's first LTE-only handset is an LG flip phone

Now, the carrier has begun offering its first LTE-only handset to subscribers, and it's obviously an attempt to lure people who prefer basic feature phones over smartphones away from the legacy network. The LG Exalt LTE is a flip feature phone, and even though it looks much nicer and sturdier than its plasticky counterparts, it's still far removed from the advanced devices we're used to today.

Its specs underline that it's definitely not something for those expecting everything an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy S8 can offer. The Exalt has an unnamed 1.1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3-inch WQVGA screen, a 5-megapixel camera, text-to-speech function, up to six hours of battery life, 8GB of storage and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. For people who just want a phone that makes clear voice calls, though, it could be more than enough. Since its calls go through Verizon's LTE network, it takes advantage of the carrier's HD Voice feature that delivers high-resolution sound.
