Leaked renders show a rotating camera on the upcoming ZUK Z2

Posted by wicked November - 28 - 2015 - Saturday Comments Off


With a lot of new brands and smartphone models coming out in the market almost every week, it’s hard to be surprised anymore about any of their “revolutionary” features. But if the leaked renders of the upcoming ZUK Z2 is any indication, then we might be in for one, as the images show a single rotating camera, which we haven’t seen in recent times. Already, some are getting excited about this, even though everything is pretty rumor-based at this point.

If you don’t know it yet, the ZUK brand is actually backed by Lenovo and has China as its primary market. Its flagship, the ZUK Z1, has been doing pretty well in its category. So the announcement a few weeks ago by the CEO himself that a ZUK Z2 was coming in 2016 was met with a bit of excitement. And now that some unofficial renders have been leaked, consider us intrigued with this 360 degree rotating camera that is on top of the display. It even has rounded corners making it look even “prettier”.

But aside from this rotating camera that will do away with the concept of the secondary cam, nothing much is revealed with these pictures. It seems that it has a dual side design made from metal and glass. Previous rumors have said that it might run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and just like the ZUK Z1, it is expected to have 64GB internal storage, or maybe even 128GB if they will be upgrading.

Of course all of this is pure speculation right now, and we’d have to wait for the official announcement from ZUK before planning a trip to China in preparation for purchasing the ZUK Z2.

Samsung Galaxy A9 specs leaked through GeekBench

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


We’re getting ready for Samsung’s new premium midrange phones and phablets to be launched soon, but for now we are getting a firmer idea of what sort of specs they might bring to the table. Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy A9 is our subject matter today, as specs begin to leak out – this one from GeekBench.

The benchmarking data shows the SM-A9000, which is dead on to be launched as the Galaxy A9, will sport the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 SoC. This might just confirm that the Galaxy A9 will be the first device carrying Qualcomm’s new midrange SoC as well. The SD620 is of an octa-core design, with four Cortex-A53 CPU cores, four Cortex-A72 CPU cores, and supported by the Adreno 510 GPU.


That chipset will almost certainly afford the Galaxy A9 Cat 7 LTE data connectivity where available. The phablet will most likely sport a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen, with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The rumored camera spec is a 16MP/5MP camera combo.

We will not have long to wait for this one, as Samsung is probably getting these second generation A-series smartphones ready to launch early 2016, if not at the end of this year. Watch this space.

Vivo X6 obtains certification from TENAA

Posted by wicked November - 15 - 2015 - Sunday Comments Off

Vivo_X6_TENAA_image_111515Vivo’s upcoming X6 smartphone has now received its certification from the Chinese regulatory agency, TENAA.

Nearly two weeks ago, Vivo sent out a teaser of the Vivo X6 that was rumored to launch on November the 11th. Most of the device’s specifications were leaked and now we have some added details regarding the design thanks to TENAA’s certification.

The device will likely sport a 6-inch QHD display, a deca-core Helio X20 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 21MP rear-facing camera, a 12MP front-facing camera and Android 5.1 out of the box and a beastly 4000mAh battery. The device will also include support for 4G connectivity and have a fingerprint scanner, which will be mounted on the rear side of the device.

The design is made of nearly all aluminum metal and is only 4mm thick, which is incredibly thin. It’s expected to launch in a variety of color options including the silver pictured, gold, and rose gold. The device could see a release any day now.

HTC One X9 passes through TENAA

Posted by wicked November - 15 - 2015 - Sunday Comments Off

HTC_One_X9_TENAA_111515_3HTC has yet another smartphone in the works. The HTC One X9 has just made its way through TENAA.

The TENAA listing shows off a 5.5-inch full-HD display, a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP shooter on the front side. The One X9 has 16GB of internal storage which is expandable via a built-in microSD card slot, which can provide some additional space. The design can be very much related to the Nexus 6P, you’ll see what I mean, with a mixture of HTC’s One A9 aluminum uni-body design. 

Unlike the previously launched, HTC One A9, the One X9 will come pre-installed with Android 5.0.2 aimed at a different market. It’s only a matter of time before a release date pops-up along with the device’s availability.

The BlackBerry Vienna may be another Android phone

Posted by wicked November - 12 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off


With still nothing to show for from the launch and the release of its first Android phone, Canadian gadget manufacturer BlackBerry is rumored to be launching a second Android smartphone in the wake of the launch of the BlackBerry Priv. This one is coded as “Vienna” for now, but these leaked renders may give us an idea of what the design will bring.

First up, these images were leaked to the people over at Crackberry, who are basically on top of all things BlackBerry. The main aesthetic detail is that from these purported renders, the Vienna seems to have done away with the Priv’s in favor a more traditional BlackBerry layout – this one with a front-facing physical keyboard.


From the renders, it looks like the keyboard takes its design from that of the Priv’s, but it’s early days, and we simply can’t tell from these renders alone. The size of the screen is another factor that we obviously would like to know, but that is not available for now.


The people at Crackberry are obviously positive about the company’s offerings these days, but we’re on a more reserved stance. The BlackBerry Priv might be a good phone, at the very least, but the USD$700 pricing is ridiculous at best. We hope BlackBerry takes a more sober stance with this next phone.

Rumored Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 shows up in TENAA

Posted by wicked November - 10 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Galaxy Golden 3

Samsung may not have confirmed yet that this particular new smartphone is coming, but when it shows up in the GFXBench database last month, and now the TENAA certification, then you know that something will be happening soon. For now, let’s just call it the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3 or SM-W2016 and see how much of the rumors and leaks will be true when the smartphone gets released soon.

Just like the two previous versions, the Galaxy Golden 3 seems to be another classic flip phone, and if you miss that kind of device, then your interest level might have spiked. The listing shows a 3.9-inch inch internal and external display of 768 x 1280 pixel resolution (although GFXBench puts it at 4.6-inches. It will run on an octa-core 2.1 GHz processor, and as per GFXBench again, it will have the Exynos 7 SoC and Mali-T760MP8 GPU, considered a high-end chipset.

It will have 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, non-expandable though, as Samsung’s new smartphones seem to be lately. Camera-wise, it has a 16MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing one. It weighs 204g and measures 120.4 × 61 × 15.1mm. It will come with Lollipop 5.1.1 out of the box.

However, despite showing up in GFXBench and TENAA, the Galaxy Golden 3 might actually not happen. That’s what happened, or rather didn’t happen, with the SM-W2015, also certified by TENAA but was never actually released. So let’s see if the Galaxy Golden 3 will actually materialize and wait for an official announcement from Samsung.


OnePlus X pricing leaked ahead of planned unveiling

Posted by wicked October - 27 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off


Going toward the end of the year when the shopping rush comes upon us all, there are a few things to get excited about from Android manufacturers, one of them is OnePlus’s promised second phone for the year (it’s third all in all). It’s set to launch in a few days’ time, and we’ll get the confirmation we need for the specs and all that, but we have here a leaked image for the phone’s pricing – equally important to us all.

So far we’ve heard prices rumored below USD$250, but with no real certainty. What we have here is what seems like part of the OnePlus X’s promotional materials, and it puts the pricing at CNY1,699, which translates to around USD$269. If true, that’s a pretty good price for a midrange phone.


We have to consider what your USD$269 is reportedly getting you with this new phone – possibly a 5-inch 1080p display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, the same one that powered the OnePlus One. That will be reportedly supported by 3GB RAM, with either 16 or 32GB in storage.

If those specs be true, then what we will be getting is a handsome new phone, with a pixel dense display and a capable spec line, even if the chipset is around 2 years old already. This will go against the more recent 5-inchers out there, like the Google Nexus 5X. Will you get this phone?

The launch of the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2, two handsets that will be exclusive to Verizon, is fast approaching. What does that mean? Leaks are happening and they are happening with greater frequency. The DROID Turbo 2’s specifications surfaced earlier in the week and then we learned that the DROID MAXX 2 would have a removable back. Now there are alleged promotional materials from Verizon that show a bit more about both.

Motorola is giving Verizon customization, lengthy battery life, and durable hardware.


The DROID Turbo 2 will join the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360 as Motorola-made devices that can be customized through the company’s Moto Maker design suite. Verizon notes that there are over 1,000 combinations for customers to explore.

And Verizon is throwing in a promotion where buyers of the 64GB model can redesign their DROID Turbo 2 if unhappy the first time around.


The promotional materials obtained also mentioned the DROID MAXX 2, confirming that the handset will live up to it predecessor’s success by having 48-hour battery life. The original DROID MAXX also touted 48-hour battery life behind a 3500mAh battery. Now that specifications have evolved from the original’s 1280×720 display resolution and dual-core processor, it should be interesting to see how Motorola manages to give Verizon an exclusive that doesn’t resemble a brick.


Another promotion, applicable to both of the aforementioned phones, will be receiving $300 back when trading in your current smartphone. When purchasing the DROID Turbo 2, Big Red is going to be willing to accept one’s with cracked screens. Not bad considering the DROID Turbo 2 will prevent that from ever happening with its “world’s first shatterproof screen.”

The DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2 will be revealed officially at an event co-hosted by Motorola and Verizon in New York City on October 27.
