Two LG Isai FL photos leak, could be indicative of the G3 or even the Nexus 5 successor

Posted by wicked April - 15 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

lg_isai_fl_white_leak

This will raise some eyebrows. On Twitter, @evleaks posted an image of the upcoming LG Isai FL smartphone in white. The device, which he says will be “coming to au by KDDI in Japan,” keeps its bezel measurement to a minimum. A few hours after the image above was posted, @evleaks shared the Isai FL in blue.

Things get interesting thanks to the design of this device. Like the LG G2, the space between the display and the edge of the handset is very small. Also, LG’s rear buttons are back in action on this device. What is even more interesting is that the design language of this device is eerily similar to that of the Nexus 5. Just look at the shape and frame of this device. It closely resembles LG’s most recent Nexus.

 

What do you think? Is this device something for the LG G3 or Nexus 6 to resemble?

LG G3 spec leak tips 5.5-inch 2K display

Posted by wicked April - 13 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

Earlier rumors were suggesting the LG G3 may be announced in May. While we have yet to hear anything official from LG, we are getting closer to that potential timeframe and that means the rumors should begin picking up. There has been some earlier spec related rumors, but for now we are concentrating on this latest — which suggests the G3 will have a 2K display.

These details were spotted on the Sprint website with reference to the LG-LS990. The LS990 is believed to the the G3. The display looks like it will measure in at 5.5-inches and arrive with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. It also looks like the handset will have a Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor clocking in at 2.3GHz.

Other details include 32GB of storage, a microSD memory card slot (with support for 64GB cards) and Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat. Finally, the camera setup looks to include a 2 MP front-facing with a 13MP rear-facing. Further details on the camera suggest the front will be able to record 1080p video and the rear will capture images at up to 4160 x 3120.

The list of leaked specs seems to be growing, but they also seem to be lining up with the earlier leaks. After all, we first heard of the display size and resolution for the LG G3 back in December. Of course, the key here, while the LG G3 appear to be shaping up nicely –we do have to remember these are to be considered nothing more than leak and rumor at this point.

HTC One (M8) in Glamour Red said to be heading to Verizon

Posted by wicked April - 12 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

At Verizon, the HTC One (M8) is only available in Gunmental Gray and Glacial Silver. Along with these colors, Verizon gained exclusivity from HTC by releasing the One (M8) on the same day it was announced. And it now looks like Verizon will be getting another exclusive. This time, another color.

On Twitter, @evleaks let the cat out of the bag by saying the HTC One (M8) on Verizon will soon be available in Glamour Red. When? We do not know. But we have heard about other red variants of the One (M8). The Stealth Red variant was recently delayed, so will Glamour Red hit a speed bump as well? Cannot be sure just yet.

Xiaomi Mi3S leak tips improved design and Snapdragon 801

Posted by wicked April - 9 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Leaks are beginning to surface for the successor to the Xiaomi Mi3. The device is expected to arrive as the Mi3S, and based on current leaks coming out of China — it is expected to have a bit more metal in terms of the design. The Xiaomi Mi3S is also said to be coming with a Snapdragon 801 processor.

Details we are seeing come courtesy of the Chinese language MyDrives, who have simply mentioned how the handset will have “more metal.” And in addition to the Snapdragon 801 processor, other specs look to include a 13MP rear-facing camera and 8MP front-facing camera with LTE and 3GB of RAM.

There hasn’t been much in terms of the display, but early reports suggest that could be similar to the Mi3. Or in other words, it looks like the Xiaomi Mi3S may end up launching with a 5-inch 1080p display. We obviously still need further clarification on the price, but the rumors and leaks suggest it will arrive at 1,999 CNY (around $320 US).

Xiaomi has recently begun expanding to markets outside of China, however we aren’t expecting to see a widespread global release. Basically, we wouldn’t expect the Mi3S to be readily available for those in the US or Europe. Perhaps more interesting should be whether Xiaomi will be able to reach the lofty sales goals they set for 2014.

They previously mentioned a goal of 60 million devices for the year. That may sound big and bold, but current figures show them having already topped the 11 million milestone. The goals didn’t stop in 2014 either as there was mention of crossing the 100 million milestone in 2015. Time will tell, but for now we’ll be keeping an eye out for confirmation on some of these Mi3S leaks.

Motorola ‘Moto X + 1′ name surfaces, the world ponders what it could be

Posted by wicked April - 6 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

motorola_moto_x_plus_1_evleaks

We now know what Motorola’s next device will be named. Thanks to @evleaks on Twitter, we are looking at a device named the “Moto X + 1″ and it is “coming soon.” He attached the image above, which will likely be used on promotional materials.

In all likelihood, the Moto X + 1 is the successor to last year’s critically acclaimed Moto X. There is also a chance that this is the 6.3-inch device Motorola is reportedly working on. Regardless, the hype for Motorola’s next device has just been raised to another level. The Moto X carried a humongous amount of hype and this device may do the same.

 

What features do you want to see in the Moto X’s successor?

OnePlus One Screenshots Leak, Show Customized CyanogenMod

Posted by wicked March - 31 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

It’s no secret that CyanogenMod has been quietly working on a modified version of the company’s Android fork to power the OnePlus One, but the aesthetics of the software have thus far remained a mystery. That changed today, with the leak of several alleged screenshots captured from an unreleased One. 

While the pictures aren’t very revealing, one does show a customized lockscreen, very different from the one found in the vanilla version of CyanogenMod 11. Similar to extensions like DashClock, the lockscreen shows beneath a picture (background?) information like battery life, weather, and text messages.

The feature looks to be an exclusive part of “CyanogenMod 11s,” the designation given to the One’s unique branch of CyanogenMod.

The One launches on April 23, and while OnePlus has remained mum on pricing, rumors suggest the smartphone will retail for less than $400. That’s not bad for a top-tier handset.

LG Optimus Exceed 2 leaks, a prepaid smartphone for Verizon

Posted by wicked March - 27 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

lg_optimus_exceed_2_verizon_prepaid_evleaks

The Lucid 3 (VS876) is not the only device LG has in the works for Verizon Wireless. The Optimus Exceed 2 is a prepaid option heading Big Red, we just do not know when. Courtesy of @evleaks, we have a very clear look at the device. Like LG’s other handsets, the Optimus Exceed 2 has very slim bezels. The main difference between this device and the previously leaked Lucid 3 seems to be the fact that since this is a prepaid Verizon handset, it only supports 3G and not 4G LTE. But both devices are officially announced, we will not know the actual internal specifications.

Not so stealthy ad reveals potential HTC One (M8) in Stealth Black and Stealth Red

Posted by wicked March - 27 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

google_search_htc_one_m8_red_2

When HTC announced the HTC One (M8) earlier this week, the only colors available initially were Gunmetal Gray, Amber Gold and Glacial Silver. There are many buyers of smartphones who look for devices with a little more pop and want other colors. HTC seems to be preparing to respond to these demands with at least two new colors – Stealth Red and Stealth Black. These colors were discovered after users performed some searches on Google and discovered ads for these variants showing up at the top of the search results.

Given the results are ads implying HTC is paying for them, even though they may be part of a larger package, this is probably a good indication that the additional colors are not far off from being released.
