Chinese manufacturer Gionee makes smartphone with four cameras

The dual-camera setup is all the craze these days and it looks like one manufacturer from China is going above and beyond the norm. Gionee’s new S10 features four cameras all in all. It has a dual setup on both the front and the rear of the device. Gionee says one of the rear shooters comes with an f/1.8 aperture and this helps get better shots in low light. Other advantages of the dual-camera setup include an ability to catch 3D effects, measure distance better, and have wider angles, among other things. The rear camera has a 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel combo, while the front has a 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel combo. It’s obviously geared to take selfies with this setup.

Other specs of the phone look pretty promising, too. It runs on a Mediatek Helio P25 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, and Android 7.0 Nougat. The S10 has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen and a 3,450mAh battery. Unfortunately, you might have a hard time getting your hands on the phone—unless you’re based in China. The phone costs 2,599 Yuan, which is around CA$500.

Early LG V30 renders show a secondary slide-out display

If you’re like us, you might have a special place in your heart for slider phones. LG seems to be tapping into that—or at least its early ideas for the V30 seem to think so. Evan Blass (@evleaks) tweeted several early mockups (here, here, and here) of the LG V30 showing a phone with a secondary display that slides out of the bottom of the device. And yes, we think it’s very reminiscent of the BlackBerry Priv.

Blass cautions that these are “old-ish” renders of the device so we can’t say if this is what LG plans for its V line. It does show us though what the company might be planning for its next V device. LG has been pretty experimental so far with its V line of devices and whether that pays off or not, we’re not sure. What do you think? Would you consider buying a phone like this?

Google Photos now lets US users create photo books on mobile

If your interest was piqued by the ability to make actual photo books from your Google Photos albums, there’s now an easier way to make these books—at least if you live in the US. Google announced at I/O 2017 that you can make physical photo books from the pictures you have on its Photos app. Initially users could only do it on the desktop browser. Now, Google updated the Photos app on iOS and Android to make it easier for you to make the books. The softcover 7-inch album will cost US$10 for 20 pages, while the hardcover 9-inch version will cost $20 for 20 pages. The downside is this feature is currently only available in the US and Google hasn’t made any announcements if it’ll bring it outside of the country. We’re hoping it makes its way here.
