This is definitely not what HTC wanted to happen the day before its MWC 2015 event. A press member with early access to the device posted a hands on video with the One (M9) being compared to its predecessors. The video does not show or reveal anything we have not heard already; therefore, all it is really good for is seeing the One (M9) in a few more angles.

The HTC One (M9), along with any other products from the company, will be announced during a press event held at 10:00AM EST.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua image leaks

Posted by wicked February - 27 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

With Mobile World Congress just around the corner, smartphone makers are gearing up to roll out a plethora of new devices at the show. We already know that Samsung and HTC have their live stream pages up and counting the days until the unveils start. Sony will also be on hand at MWC to show off its new devices.

Ahead of the official Sony unveil; an image of a new Xperia smartphone has hit the web. The image is said to the of a new Sony Android device that will be unveiled at the show called the Xperia M4 Aqua. No specifications were leaked along with the image of the device.

However, the Aqua in the name suggests that the smartphone will be water resistant. Water resistance would be nothing new, Sony and other smartphone makers have been producing water resistant devices for a while now.

All we can glean from the image right now is that the Xperia M4 Aqua has the signature Sony power button, a dedicated camera button, and a flap that covers the microSD card slot. Rumors claim the device will rock a 5.2-inch screen, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and run Android 5.0.

Someone over on the XDA Forums has posted what are allegedly Samsung applications that will be featured on the upcoming Galaxy S 6. The apps included by user Albe95 are Optical Reader, Geo News, Gear Manager, and Kids Mode. The layout and amount of text seems simplified while a wide amount of colors are still being used. Basically, TouchWiz looks like less of a circus while maintaining its flavor.

The Samsung Galaxy S 6 will be announced on Sunday, March 1, at MWC 2015.

Alongside the Galaxy S 6, Samsung will launch the Galaxy S 6 Edge. The device matches the Galaxy Note Edge in terms of the unique curved edge. Today, what are believed to be official images of the Galaxy S 6 Edge leaked. Each and every angle is on display for the world to see just before the devices becomes official at MWC 2015.

Hit the break to see the leaked images.

The difference here, though, is that the Galaxy S 6 has a curved edge on both the left and right sides. Samsung seemingly maintains a symmetrical look and comfortable button placement by narrowing the curved edges. The Galaxy S 6 Edge’s display has curves that are more sharp while still maintaining the required look.

The home button, camera, and flash all protrude from the handset according to this leak. On the bottom, Samsung has placed the audio jack and speaker. The top features two items that are likely there for the IR blaster and antenna. Overall, the Galaxy S 6 Edge looks clean and impressive.

Leaked Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge promotion shows curved screen glory

Posted by wicked February - 27 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

We have seen several leaks in weeks past that talk about the coming Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone and the S6 with curved edges on the screen. So far, we have seen the specifications for the smartphone leaked via AnTuTu benchmarks. Just yesterday, a rumor surfaced claiming that the device would be called the Galaxy S Dual Edge.

That rumor was supposedly from an industry source that was in the know. It seems that source is wrong, at least if this leaked Samsung marketing campaign for the Galaxy S6 and its curved screen brethren is legit. The images you see here are claimed to be from a leaked marketing campaign for the new smartphones.

According to the leaked images, the curved edge smartphone will be called the Galaxy S6 Edge with the standard smartphone simply called the Galaxy S6. The leaked image also tips that Samsung is going with the “Six Appeal” slogan, which is clearly supposed to make us think of “Sex Appeal.”

The rumor from yesterday about the name of the curved screen device also suggested that Samsung wouldn’t be using the curved edges of the screen on the S6 Edge (or whatever it is called) for notifications. If the source from that rumor had the name wrong, the tidbit about no notifications on the curved screen sides could be wrong as well.

New images show Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge side by side

Posted by wicked February - 26 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

samsung_galaxy_s6_s6_edge_compare_01

Some new images have leaked that show the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge sitting next to each other. Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the images is the configuration of the curved screen of the Galaxy S6 Edge. As previously suspected, the curved screen of the Galaxy S6 Edge appears to exist on both sides of the device unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge which had a curved screen on only one side.

In looking at the screen display, the impression is that the curved edges have provided Samsung with the ability to produce a bevel-less display. The curved portion of the display as shown is an extension of the main display, so it is unclear how Samsung plans to use the additional space. The leaked image also shows Samsung had to get creative with the power and volume buttons since they seem to be missing, so that will be a detail to look for when the devices are officially unveiled.

Samsung_Galaxy_S_Edge_Teaser_ATT_01

Talk Android has been covering the wallpaper leaks from HTC for the past month, but now we’re getting a look at a wallpaper that will be arriving with the Samsung Galaxy S6.

One of the big design elements we’re expecting from Samsung‘s “Project Zero” smartphone is a metal chassis, and this wallpaper really emphasizes that aesthetic approach.

According to the source of the wallpaper, it will be found on both the Galaxy S6 as well as its Galaxy S6 Edge variant.

In the coming weeks and months, Samsung will begin pushing software updates to its devices. We have already heard about various phones from the company preparing for Lollipop updates, but not much has been said regarding its tablets. The Galaxy Tab S, though, is a lock for the boost to the latest version of Android. The tablet has been spotted running Android 5.0.2 and a video published shows what there is to know in terms of changes.

Android Pay tipped for Google I/O unveiling

Posted by wicked February - 26 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Sources have again surfaced, and they bring with them whispers of an upcoming “Android Pay” announcement at Google’s I/O conference early this summer. Android Pay, should it come to fruition, will work exactly as you’d expect: it’ll be used to accept payments in apps, and to pay for items in stores with a tap-to-pay arrangement and support for Android Pay. According to sources, Android Pay will likewise be built from the ground-up for Android devs, and will be, by the looks of things, a direct competitor to Apple Pay.

The information comes from unnamed sources that spoke to the folks at Ars Technica. According to the sources, we’ll be hearing about Android Pay officially when Google launches it this May at its I/O conference. The platform will reportedly utilize, among other things, Google’s Host Card Emulation, and will not do away with Google Wallet.

Rather, Google Wallet will co-exist as a different offering, and Android Pay will itself offer support for Google Wallet, at least according to the leak. Users will tie their credit and debit cards to Android Pay, and will then be able to use them to make fast ‘tap’ payments.

At this point, says the sources, Google does not have partners on board with Android Pay. Additional details on Google’s plans weren’t revealed, but if the sources are correct, we’ll likely be hearing more about the platform crop up in the coming weeks ahead of Google I/O.
