This summer, it seems that LG will join Samsung in releasing a handset that is centered around the use of a stylus. The name device itself have yet to be confirmed but it is currently being called the G4 Note (or G Note). In fact, it could be the device that LG selects as its flagship for 2015. Not much is know about the G4 Note at this time, but images have surfaced showing an alleged pre-release model.

The images were posted by s3rv1cet3ch on the XDA Forums and show the front and rear of the device. The front looks like a cross between the G3 and G Flex 2. The bottom of the front features the company logo on a black frame that is outlined with grey.

The rear shows what seems to be either metal or some either high quality material. It looks identical to any other flagship device released by LG within the last two years due to the rear button setup. The buttons are not shiny and instead look like they have a matte finish. Viewing from the back, you will notice that the stylus slot is placed on the top left. Samsung goes with bottom placement for its styluses.

The software images do not giveaway much aside from the version of Android running. Here, we see Android 5.0.2 Lollipop in the form of build LRX22G.

More HTC One M9 Plus leaks as Beijing event invite flies out

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

Well surprise, surprise. A day after we featured some “less than believable” mockups of what was purportedly the new HTC One M9 Plus – a bigger version of the newly launched HTC One M9 flagship, a la Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus – we have an event invite coming out of HTC for an unveiling event in Beijing, plus a couple of images of more “solid” leaks pointing to the fact that the new phone might be closer to reality than we thought.

HTC_m9_plus_invite

First up, an invite image just came up on Weibo – China’s biggest social network – from HTC for an event on April 8, alluding to the HTC One M9 Plus. The image itself shows an image of a device with a big-ish camera module, but the telling detail is the caption that says “More than One”. One M9 “Plus”, geddit?

But for that launch to happen, the hardware must follow suit – and not just mockups that are really not that good to look at. That seems to be covered by these next images, putting to real life the HTC One M9 Plus – coded as “HTC M9pt” on one of the images. The face of the phone does seem bigger, although it’s rumored to be just at 5.2 inches. There’s a physical home button on the face as well.

From what little is there, we can see that this model carries a MediaTek octa-core MT6795 chipset, 64-bit and all. It runs on Android Lollipop, although we’re not sure which version at this point. It features 3GB of RAM and over 20GB of internal storage. And it looks like HTC is staying with very familiar aesthetics, very close to the One M9. What do you think?

Video surfaces online showcasing the design of a dummy One M9+

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

The upscaled version of HTC’s flagship smartphone of 2015, the One (M9), has been the subject of a lot of speculation for a while now. Leaks have been plentiful and, consequently, we’ve learnt quite a bit about the devices specifications from press renders and prematurely published spec sheets.

Now, however, we’re finally getting a first-hand look at the design of the One M9+.

Earlier today, a video appeared on YouTube starring a dummy version of the handset, showing us the adjustments HTC has made to accommodate the new 5.2-inch QHD display.

Click here to view the embedded video.

Now we’ve seen the devices full exterior, lets discuss its internals. If recent AnTuTu benchmarking tests are anything to go by, the M9+ is set to pack a MediaTek MT6795T chipset with an octa-core 64-bit processor, a Power VR 6200 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

Similar to the One (M8), the M9+ feature a secondary camera. This is rumored to work in conjunction with the 20.7-megapixel primary camera in order to produce crystal clear wide-angle images.

Are you looking forward to the release of the HTC One M9+? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below.

Video, images of rumored HTC One M9 Plus leaks

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

Well, it looks like HTC is not done yet – or at least, that’s what these leaked images and this video is supposed to make us think. After the launch of their new flagship, the gaudy HTC One M9, rumors have not died down about a bigger version of the flagship phone – not quite to phablet sizes, but a 5.2-inch “HTC One M9 Plus”. Will we actually see this phone hit the market?

Nowhereelse.fr, that French tech blog which has been the source of many a solid rumor, has now in its possession a mockup of what the HTC One M9 Plus is supposed to look like. The model is equipped with a 5.2-inch screen, to the standard flagship’s 5-inch flat 1080p screen. As we said, it’s not quite a phablet, just a bigger phone (not quite iPhone 6 to iPhone 6 Plus). Maybe this is why we’re not seeing this in the market yet – HTC should think twice or thrice about this future phone’s screen size.

Also, it is rumored to be packing either the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 proc or a Mediatek MT6795, depending on the market. The change with the display is that it will be a 2K display, something that HTC One fans were desperate to see on the standard M9 but was all in vain. See more pics via the source link below, and check out the video as well.

HTC-One-M9-Plus-08

So, will we be seeing this phone for real? Something tells me that HTC is thinking hard on this, else we might have seen it launch together with the HTC One M9. Still, it’s not far from reality that the Taiwan-based manufacturer might just say “what the heck” and go with it. We all get to wait and see.

OPPO rumored to be working on bezel-less device, leaked images

Posted by wicked March - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

For the record, bezels are not such bad things, you know. They facilitate ergonomics of a device, making sure there are no “ghost touches” on your touchscreen display. Also, they act as support for your display, so that there is some material that protects the screen if you happen to drop your phone (which you will). That said, the larger the bezel, the uglier your device seems to become – that is why there is this seeming obsession with slimmer bezels. But OPPO seems to be of the opinion that it can do away with the bezel entirely.

oppo-patent

The China-based manufacturer is reportedly making a device that amazingly does not show any bezel on the sides of the screen, as seen in these leaked images we’re showing you. To be fair, we need to mention that there can’t be “zero” bezel (at least, not yet anyways) – there’s some light refraction wizardry that’s going on here, as shown in the tech schematic above. The shaded region marked “22” is the real bezel, but the screen image is refracted so that it covers the whole screen area seemingly from edge to edge.

oppo-bezel-less-phone-2

These images seem to feature a metallic frame around the phone, and a slim form factor. With OPPO yet to launch a successor to the flagship OPPO Find 7 phone, we could be looking at the direct successor of that device, and what a looker it could be.

oppo-bezel-less-phone-3

Japanese manufacturer Sharp did something like this with the Aquos Crystal maybe a year ago, using the same refraction technique. We’re wondering how OPPO could actually seek to patent such a technology if it has been used before – unless Sharp was using it at OPPO’s behest (highly unlikely). Of course, we could be looking at very high quality fakes (always a possibility), so we need to watch this space if something comes out from OPPO to confirm these.

Rumored Huawei Ascend P8 images leak, as invites to April event fly out

Posted by wicked March - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

It’s right about time for China-based manufacturer Huawei to put out an update to their high-end smartphone line, so people are beginning to whisper that the Huawei Ascend P8 might soon be unveiled. True enough, Huawei has sent out invites for an April 15 event in London where it might just do that. For now though, we will have to be satisfied with these leaked images that supposedly came straight from the manufacturing line of the new smartphone.

huawei_p8_leak2_1

Twitter account @Onleaks has put out a couple of images to help us work out what we could possibly expect. The first image (above) shows us the bottom section of what is purportedly the new Huawei Ascend P8. Pretty standard here – we see a microUSB port and two speaker grilles. The big deal? It seems like the phone’s body is made up of some kind of metallic material, surprise surprise.

huawei_p8_leak2_2

The next image is of some schematics reportedly of the same phone. The image shows a remarkably slim phone at 6.6mm, with design cues coming from both Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S6. In their defense, there’s only so much you can do when you go with a metallic frame, really. The interesting portion is a rectangular strip below the camera module whose purpose is undefined as of now, but rumors are flying about that it could be a fingerprint sensor. Well, hello.

Huawei-P8-new-image1-710x401

Huawei’s London event will most probably be centered on the Ascend P8, whose pricing is rumored to be around USD$480. With rumored flagship specs – a Kirin 930 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 5.2-inch full HD display – that pricing will seriously undercut Samsung and HTC’s new flagship offerings. We’ll be on the lookout on April 15th for the latest on this new phone.

New image compares HTC One M9 with HTC One M9 Plus

Posted by wicked March - 23 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

htc_one_m9_one_m9_plus_mockup

Earlier today we say a posting from Twitter account @OnLeaks describing the dimensions of the HTC One M9 Plus, a smartphone that everyone is trying to figure out whether it is going to come to market or not. @OnLeaks has indicated since then that he was able to view a prototype of the HTC One M9 Plus and based on that, he created a mock up showing the device next to the HTC One M9.

As the image reveals, besides the difference in dimensions, the biggest difference is the presence of a button on the front of the HTC One M9 Plus. The lead candidate for that button, that first surfaced in an image back in January, is that it is actually a fingerprint sensor. Whether it serves some other dual purpose, like being a home button or a power button, is unclear.

Dimensions of the HTC One M9 Plus leak via Twitter

Posted by wicked March - 23 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

htc_one_m9_plus_new_leak_01

Just because MWC 2015 has been and gone, that doesn’t mean there aren’t new smartphones looming on the horizon. We’ve seen glimpses of the much-rumoured HTC One M9 Plus for a while now, first we had some pictures leak out, and then some details about its camera became public knowledge. Now? Well, now we have the alleged dimensions of the HTC One M9 Plus.

The leaked details come courtesy of @OnLeaks and show that the HTC One M9 Plus is larger than the standard M9 in every way. Whereas the 5-inch M9 has dimensions of 144.6 x 69.7 x 9.61mm, the Plus variant measures up with 150.9 x 72.5 x 10.15mm. So if these leaked dimensions are correct, the Plus version is longer, wider and fatter than the standard M9. Of course, one reason the Plus variant is larger is that it allegedly carries a 5.2-inch display that may or may not have a Quad-HD resolution.

The HTC One M9 Plus might be released later in the year or it may actually be cancelled. One thing that is for certain though is that the steady stream of leaks will continue to tease us. One question that keeps raising its head in my mind is whether the M9 Plus is or was the phone that we wanted HTC to announce at MWC? Only time will tell.

2nd generation Moto 360 prototype possibly revealed

Posted by wicked March - 19 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

motorola_moto_360_2nd_gen_prototype_leak

Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing took to Weibo today to make a plug for increasing options for Moto 360 buyers when the next version is released and may have inadvertently revealed some prototypes of the second generation of the wearable. Yang pulled down the post shortly after making it, but of course the Internet prevailed and the image was captured before Yang could make it disappear.

The image does reveal that Motorola may be working on some options to make Yang’s desire to provide more choice to buyers a reality. The devices shown appear to come in two different sizes for both the watch face and for the corresponding bands. Speaking of the watch bands, it appears Motorola may have decided to use some traditional watch band lug ends. This could open the device up to being able to accept normal watch bands. Even if that option does not exist, the image shows Motorola has several new options available for watch bands.

Those examining the image also note that the watch face appears to still have the small notch at the bottom of the screen. That space is an annoyance to some users, but Motorola has said it is necessary to keep the bezel size as thin as possible.
