oneplus one inviteIn just a few days, OnePlus will be holding an event for some upcoming product announcement. the company posted an “invitation” on Google+ and Twitter with the comment “from here on out, anything can happen.” Yep, pretty vague.

There are no details on what this event is going to be, although we’re expecting a new OnePlus device soon, and the company is planning some video game accessory, too. My money’s on the game device, but hey, anything can happen, right?

Xaiomi teasing product announcements for fifth anniversary celebration

Posted by wicked March - 30 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off


On March 31st, Xiaomi will be celebrating their fifth anniversary. To celebrate, the company appears to be ramping up plans to expand beyond the smartphone and tablet product lines they were initially founded on as well as release some updated products in the traditional lines. For example, rumors already exist suggesting Xiaomi is going to release the Mi Pad 2 tablet device. Over the last few days, the company has been releasing some teaser images related to other products they apparently plan to announce at the big celebration.

One of the new products appears to be related to women’s fashion. The teaser image shows a woman’s dress and has a pink background. The letters hinting at the new product are “NSSJ” although it is unclear what that refers to. However, the president of Somans Fashion Group stated “this was the first such collaboration between the two companies.” That was in response to a Weibo post by Xiaomi’s co-founder Lin Bin who said the company wants to be more fashionable.

Another teaser image that was released shows an outline of something with the number 5 in the middle. The background of this image leans to a shade of red, which could possibly hint at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 device. A third image that was released comes with a magnifying glass image on top of a play button icon with the letters DDS and a background that is a gradient of orange and yellow. Again, the image is rather cryptic, though some think it may allude to a new 55-inch television that Xiaomi has plans to release.

Today, a fourth teaser image was released, this time with a green background. The image shown appears to be an arrow stuck in a bullseye target and the teaser is adorned with the letters TZC. The rings of the bullseye are marked with 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 as you work your way out. Some sources think this could refer to a connected scale and reflects Xiaomi’s interest in the Internet of Things.

Overall, the teaser images seem to be quite vague, but it is possible some of the impact is getting lost in the cultural translation since they are probably meant for an Asian audience that might pick up on some more subtle suggesstions related to the images. We will be watching tomorrow to see what Xiaomi announces to celebrate five years in existence and hopefully all will be revealed about what these teasers mean.

HTC One M9 Plus could be announced at event scheduled for April 8th

Posted by wicked March - 25 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


Although HTC is still in the process of rolling out their newest flagship device, the HTC One M9, they have issued an invitation to an announcement event scheduled for April 8th in Beijing. The announcement includes an image of an HTC smartphone that appears to have a dual camera setup, consistent with rumors of the HTC One M9 Plus camera equipment. Another clue that the HTC One M9 Plus will be headlining the event is the “More than One” tagline HTC uses, indicating their announcement will be about the One “plus” something.

Some sources are worried that the selection of Beijing for the announcement is an indication the HTC One M9 Plus will only be available to the Chinese market or only Asian markets at best.

HTC confirms it will not be unveiling a smartwatch at its event tomorrow

Posted by wicked October - 7 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off


We’ve known for a while now that HTC is gearing up to launch its first ever smartwatch. Recent rumors pointed towards the much-anticipated wearable being unveiled at the company’s ‘Double Exposure’ event tomorrow in New York.

However, Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC USA, put paid to that notion by announcing the wearable the company has been developing for the past few months isn’t ready for public use, just yet.

“When we come to market with our product we want to make sure the product has a strong point of view and there is a really compelling reason to strap it on your wrist. We think the strategy we were working on will get us there, but we want to take our time and get it right. We honestly don’t think anyone has gotten it right.”

So as it stands we can only assume that HTC is planning to announce either the long-awaited Desire Eye smartphone, its upcoming GoPro competitor or both at tomorrow’s conference. We’d love to know what you think the manufacturer is preparing to showcase, so be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.

Mobile World Congress 2014: We’re here in Barcelona

Posted by wicked February - 23 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

After several flights, with several layovers in several countries, we are now here in Barcelona. The show has yet to officially begin, however we have already begun seeing some announcements. One in particular, Samsung put an end to the recent rumors, and officially announced the Galaxy Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. We also spotted the still unannounced Huawei smartwatch during our trip to Barcelona.

We expect Huawei, amongst many others to begin pushing out announcements soon enough. In the meantime, we can offer this post with a brief rundown of what can be expected in terms of coverage. The actual show opens tomorrow, but there are some events that begin a bit later today (February 23rd). Two in particular will be Digital Experience and MobileFocus.

These are smaller, more personal events and we expect to get plenty of hands-on coverage. You can look forward to that hitting the site sometime later this evening, and possibly through tomorrow morning. And remember, we are talking Barcelona time here, which is 6 hours ahead of eastern, and 9 hours ahead of pacific for those in the US.

Then, come Monday morning the main show opens, and from that point it will be a matter of running around the show floor and hitting some one-on-one meetings. As for what that should mean for the readers — plenty of hands-on coverage. Make sure to keep an eye on the site, with a special focus on the MWC 2014 hub.

Nokia X announcement expected during Mobile World Congress

Posted by wicked February - 18 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

Rumors related to the Nokia X “Normandy” have been increasing in frequency lately. Speculation had been suggesting the handset would get an official unveil during Mobile World Congress, and while Nokia hasn’t offered much in the way of specifics here — a recent press conference teaser appears to be highlighting an X.

The image seen here in the post is the X, which is actually the green space between the four arrows. But regardless of whether Nokia is using an actual X, or making one out of the negative space — it seems we are going to be seeing the long-rumored Nokia Android handset on February 24th.

There wasn’t much else here in terms of hints, or even speculation. The invite mentions how Nokia will be holding a press conference during Mobile World Congress and about how it will be taking place at 8:30AM (Barcelona time) on February 24th. Of course, the Android Community team will be in Barcelona and will be looking to get hands-on with the Nokia X as quickly as possible.

Nokia will also be streaming the event on the website. But in terms of time, remember, this event will begin at 8:30AM Barcelona time. Or in other words, you would be looking at 1:30AM eastern time. Those on the west coast however, do have a slightly better chance of seeing the livestream as it would be happening at 11:30PM. But remember, those on PST would be looking at February 23rd for a date.

While we wait for the 24th, make sure to head down in to the Story Timeline sitting below for a look at our earlier Nokia X coverage.

HTC confirms March 25 announcement event

Posted by wicked February - 18 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

HTC has sent out the latest ‘save the date’ reminder. This one is set for Tuesday March 25, 2014. As often happens, HTC hasn’t offer much in the way of specifics here, and has simply offered a date and time, along with a location. Basically, nothing in terms of what they are planning to show during the event.

Of course, speculation suggests we will be seeing the successor to the HTC One. The handset is currently still using the codename of HTC M8, and has also been referred to as the One 2, One+ and One Plus. Though, based an earlier trademark filing from OnePlus, there may be a valid reason for HTC to avoid those latter two names.


Either way though, the leaks and rumors have been increasing in frequency and that will likely hold until the time of the announcement. Along with HTC announcing the successor to the One, Samsung is also planning to announce their next flagship. Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S5 at Unpacked 5 during Mobile World Congress.

This would get Samsung out first in terms of an announcement, however as we have seen in the past, device announcements often don’t mean as much as device availability. Having said that, both the HTC M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are both shaping up to be solid offerings — assuming the rumors and leaks prove to be accurate.

Google confirms October 24 “night out” Google Play event

Posted by wicked October - 18 - 2013 - Friday Comments Off

It looks like Google has begun sending out some invitations. The event is set to take place next week, on October 24th and in New York City. The catch is, while we are hoping to see the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat — this event appears focused on Google Play. In fact, the announcement mentions a “night out with Google Play” with further talk of music, movies, games and a special performance.


Sadly, that special performance isn’t specifically listed as being Nexus 5 or Kit Kat related. To that point, it was said the special guest will be Capital Cities. Anyway, as we often see with these types of event invites, the details are light and that leads to some speculation. Or in this case, the hope the Nexus 5 is made official.

Touching on the bit about this being “a night out with Google Play event” and there is potential to see the Nexus 5 and Kit Kat. After all, as we saw back in July with the ‘Breakfast with Sundar’ event, the name didn’t exactly spill all the details. That is to say this seems to fit the pattern we saw in July — a mysterious title and an announcement.


But again, all we can say for certain is this event will be focused on Google Play. While we hope this not be the case, it could have nothing to do with Nexus or Kit Kat. That all being said, one thing we can say for sure, there will certainly be one difference compared to the July event — Hugo Barra will not be unveiling the Nexus 5 as he did with the Nexus 7.
