Upcoming Hardware Launches 2019 (Updated)

(118 User Comments) »


In this article, which our team will regularly update, we will maintain a growing list of information pertaining to upcoming hardware releases based on leaks and official announcements as we spot them. There will obviously be a ton of rumors on unreleased hardware, and it is our goal to—based on our years of industry experience—exclude the crazy ones. In addition to these upcoming hardware release news, we will regularly adjust the structure of this article to better organize information. Each time an important change is made to this article, it will re-appear on our front page with a "new" banner, and the additions will be documented in the forum comments thread. This article will not leak information we signed an NDA for.

Feel free to share your opinions and tips in the forum comments thread and subscribe to the same thread for updates.
