It's only been a few months since the release of Xiaomi's stunning Mi Mix 2, but apparently the company is almost ready to unveil its successor. This will be called Mi Mix 2S, and not Mi Mix 3, allegedly, and that should give you a good idea about it - namely, that it won't be very different from the Mi Mix 2. The most important new spec it will bring to the table is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is expected to be featured in almost all high-end Android handsets this year. In fact, Xiaomi is looking to announce the Mi Mix 2S before MWC kicks off in Barcelona in the second half of...

Galaxy Note9 gets an all-day unboxing from T-Mobile

Samsung's Galaxy Note9 is the star of the mobile world today, and for good reason. You've probably seen our announcement post, our hands-on review, and the details regarding prices and availability, so now how about an unboxing video? It's not your average unboxing video, though. T-Mobile has in the past used some pretty wild settings for unboxing new phones, and in this case the company's resident unboxer @AskDes decided to create an all-day unboxing to basically see if he'd last longer than the phone.
