Galaxy Note 4 rendering leaks confirming previous leaks

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Many smartphone users out there are looking forward to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 landing so they can get their hands on the latest Sammy phablet. Earlier this month we talked about some leaked images of the Galaxy Note 4 that showed a metal frame, rounded corners, and thin design. A new rendering of the smartphone has leaked this week.

This new rendering seems to confirm the leaked images from earlier this month. Exactly where the rendering came from is unknown and there is no way to confirm that this is a legitimate rendering of the device. Samsung is expected to unveil the Note 4 at IFA 2014 next month.

Along with the leaked rendering of the smartphone comes a leaked video of a disguised Galaxy Note 4 in use. The video shows the screen, believed to be 5.7-inches with 1440 x 2560 resolution packing 515ppi. Since we can’t see the phone design, we certainly can’t confirm that this is a Note 4 and not some hoax.

The video really shows nothing but a user repeatedly tapping the screen of a phone claimed to be the Note 4. You get to see nothing but a splash screen with what appears to be some sort writing on the screen.

Lenovo Vibe X2 leaked images reveal metal chassis

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

lenovo_vibe_x2_leak_01

When a leaked Lenovo roadmap was discovered a little over a week ago, one of the devices listed was the Lenovo Vibe X2, a sequel to the Lenovo Vibe X. The roadmap document seemed to hint at the device being available in a wide variety of colors. Some newly discovered photos of the device add a little more information to what Lenovo is getting ready to bring to market. The images show what appears to be a metal chassis for the device. A view of the side also shows what appears to be layers of metal used for construction of the smartphone, though it is difficult to tell if that is just a faux look.

Sources expect Lenovo to pack the Vibe X2 with a MediaTek octa-core processor, though it is possible a variant running a dual-core Intel processor may also be produced. The screen should be a 5-inch display running at full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The Vibe X2 is also expected to come with 16 GB of internal storage and will run Android 4.4.2.

Lenovo’s roadmap put the release of the Vibe X2 before October, so we may not have to wait long to get more details. Lenovo may even unveil it during IFA 2014 next week.

It is not much to go on, but a previously unreported LG device has shown up on the web site of South Korean carrier LG U Plus. The mystery device has a model number LG-F520L. Outside of that, there is no other information to go on. To try to add a little context though, the LG-F470L listed corresponds to the LG G3 Beat while the LG-F460L is the LG G3. So a model number in the 5xx series could indicate the device is part of the next generation smartphone line from LG.

Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 4 appears in brief new video, shows just the display

Posted by wicked August - 29 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

A video showing the Galaxy Note 4 has surfaced. Well, it sort of shows the Galaxy Note 4. The video is just 15 seconds long and shows a Samsung device with the model number SM-N910. All you can see is its display as a dummy box is covering any actual design. In the video, the demonstrator is poking around aimlessly. There is not very much to see here except the fact that you can get a good sizing for the Galaxy Note 4′s display (if this is even the said device).

Hit the break to watch the full 15-second video.

Images of Huawei Ascend Mate 7 show up

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

huawei_ascend_mate_7_leak_01

With IFA 2014 ready to get started next week, leaks of devices expected to launch should be no surprise. The latest images to surface appear to show the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 which is expected to be officially announced by Huawei at their September 4th event.

The images seem to confirm what the fingerprint on Huawei’s invitations suggested, that the device will come with a fingerprint scanner as seen on the back panel. The front of the device shows Huawei is ready to go with some very thin bezels for this product. That should help a little bit with the size of the device since the Ascend Mate 7 is expected to have a 6-inch screen. We still do not know whether Huawei will release two variants, one with a standard HD screen running at 1920 x 108 and another version with a quad HD screen running at 2560 x 1440 resolution. If there are two versions, it is expected that both will be driven by Huawei’s own Kirin 920 octa-core processor.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 gets an unofficial advanced preview

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

All eyes are on the Galaxy Note 4 headed for IFA 2014 next week, but there is another big boy that might also be in town at the same time. The less gigantic Galaxy Mega 2 isn’t out yet, but the guys over at DroidSans have managed to get their hands on one and are now giving the rest of the world a sneak peak at Samsung’s extra large phablet.

The Galaxy Mega 2 with its 6.0-inch display sits cozily in between the 5.8-inch and the 6.3-inch Galaxy Megas. This means that while it is still too big for one-handed use, it isn’t as obnoxious as the largest phablets-almost-tablets in the market today. That display also boasts of Super AMOLED and a resolution of 1280×720, so at least it isn’t lacking too much in that area. And fortunately, Samsung has endowed it with its multi-window feature to take advantage of the extra space available.

This phablet won’t be a powerhouse, but it won’t be an underdog either. It is said to house an Exynos 4415, a quad-core Samsung chip running at 1.4 GHz. There 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage space, of which only 11 GB is really available to the user, most likely thanks to bloatware. There’s an 8 megapixel shooter at the back, complete with Auto Focus and LED flash. On the front, you have 2.1 megapixels. The battery is marked at 2,800 mAh.

In terms of design, the Galaxy Mega 2 resembles more closely the Galaxy Note 3, with its faux leather back cover with stitches, rather than the Galaxy S5‘s perforated pattern. And like the Galaxy Note 3, the edges are silver-coated plastic. This smartphone is slated to launch sometime next month. DroidSans puts the price tag at 14,500 THB, which is around $455 in the US.

New leaked pictures of Xperia Z3 show clearer view

Posted by wicked August - 27 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

We’re just a few days away from the official announcement of Sony’s newest smartphone, the Xperia Z3. But people still can’t get enough of any new leaks about the upcoming flagship of the Japanese OEM. New leaked photos show a better view of the handset, including a closer look at its battery.

The new photos show the Xperia Z3 from all angles possible, showing how much slimmer and lighter it is than its predecessor, the Xperia Z2. If the leaked pictures are the actual new smartphone, then it means it will be running on a 3100mAh battery (Z2 ran on 3200mAh). A few days ago, a certification from China’s TENAA was also leaked, with the Xperia Z3 listed as L55t and L55u models, with the difference between them being the former supports TD-SCDMA, TD-LTE network while the latter has WCDMA and TD-LTE network.

Based on the details shown in the documents, there is very little difference between the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 in terms of specifications. The Xperia Z3 just has a faster processor using a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Quadcore as compared to the Z2’s 2.3 GHz. The new smartphone is also thinner at 146.5×72.4×7.35mm (the Z2 is 146.8×73.3×8.2mm) and lighter at 158.4kg (Z2 weighs in at 163kg). In terms of display, they have the same size at 5.2” but the Xperia Z3 has full HD display while Xperia Z2 uses the the Triluminos display (also in full HD). Other than those mentioned, the two smartphones have the same specs, with 3GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and 20.7MP main camera.

As to whether all these leaks are reliable, we’ll all find out on September 3, during Sony’s reveal at the IFA in Berlin. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the leaked images of the Xperia Z3.

New Moto G2 pics leak showing device with interchangeable back plates

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

We got our first glimpse at what is expected to be Motorola’s next entry-level smartphone dubbed the Moto G2 earlier this month. We aren’t sure that the Moto G2 will be the name of the device; it could also be called the Moto G+1. Some new images of the smartphone have turned up on the web showing the device from just about every angle.

The G2 has back panels that can be swapped to give the phone a different look. In the images, we see white, pink, and blue back plates. Word on the street is that the Moto G2 will be unveiled officially on September 4.

Along with the new images also comes an unofficial teaser summarizing the specs for the G2. The G2 is expected to get a 5-inch screen with 720p resolution, an 8MP rear camera, front facing stereo speakers, and a microSD card slot.

Rumors point to some decent hardware under the hood with a Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB of RAM, and 8 or 16GB of storage. One of the things that the original Moto G lacked that bugged some folks was a microSD card slot for storage expansion, so that is a big upgrade. The screen of the G2 is expected to be about half an inch larger than the original. Pricing details are still unknown, but if September 4 is the launch date we don’t have long to wait to hear more.

More Samsung Galaxy Alpha models tipped to arrive soon

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

If you’ve been mulling over getting one of Samsung’s latest metal-clad beauties, you might want to hold off for a bit longer. Insider sources claim that the Korean manufacturer actually has a few other Galaxy Alpha models on the way, possibly making their debut next month or later this year.

The Galaxy Alpha has made quite a stir, not because of hardware specs alone, but also because of the design. Give Samsung plastic fetish, a smartphone with a sturdier and more premium looking metal frame seemed almost like a pipe dream. And yet here we are. That said, the Galaxy Alpha isn’t a bad device either, though not exactly top of the line, which Samsung still reserves for the plastic Galaxy S and Galaxy Note families. A new and powerful Exynos 5430 octa-core, 2 GB of RAM, a 12 megapixel camera, all tucked inside a handy 4.7-inch 720p Super AMOLED display makes for a rather decent offering.

Based on this leak, however, the Galaxy Alpha is true to its “alpha” name, an opening salvo and progenitor to a new “A series” that is believed to bear the same new design. The A300, A500, and A700 have been named as the new models for this line. The SM-A300 is said to bear only a 960×640 qHD display while both the SM-A500 and SM-A700 retain the 720p resolution. So far, only the A500 has been semi-confirmed via the User Agent profile of Samsung’s own website, and it indeed bears a 1280×720 screen though the size is still a mystery.

Not much else is known about these three A smartphones but, according the source, we might not have to wait long to learn more. These Galaxy Alphas, or whatever name they will bear, are set to appear in Q3 this year. If so, there is a chance that they will debut at IFA 2014. But then again, Samsung will hardly take the spotlight away from the Galaxy Note 4 and what could be a new Gear smartwatch, so the most realistic expectation would be a 2014 Q4 announcement.

Specs of Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact leaked

Posted by wicked August - 26 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

IFA 2024 is just a week away, but people still can’t wait until the newest products from their favorite tech companies are finally revealed. Leaks about Sony’s newest tablet, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, have been few and far between for the past months, but now a source has leaked the specifications of the device. While its predecessor, the Xperia Tablet Z2 has had no joy in terms of sales, it has been pretty well-reviewed in the tech community, so the new tablet is still hoping to make a dent in the market.

The main difference between the previous and the new tablet is when it comes to the display. The 8-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact will reportedly have a 1920×1080 Full HD IPS screen and will include Sony’s proprietary Triluminos technology as well as the X-Reality picture processing engine. It will be running on Snapdragon 801, same as with the Xperia Z2 Tablet but with a higher-clocked variant and will have 3GB RAM.

Other than that, the other specs are basically like the previous tablet. It will have 16GB internal storage, an 8MP Exmor RS rear camera, a 4500-5000mAh battery and for connectivity, it will have LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. An ad on the Xperia Facebook page may have teased the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and its water and dust resistant capability as it showed a man sitting beside the pool using the tablet.

The 7-8-inch tablet market is still dominated by Apple with its iPad Mini Retina, and with another one set to be launched this October, its competitors have to scramble to come up with something pretty special to entice consumers. Now we don’t know if the leaked specs will come true and if this will be enough for the fickle market to switch its attention from the iPad to the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
