Videos of the all new HTC One have appeared, disappeared, and have been both useful and useless. But now we finally have some really nice high quality photos of the upcoming device. Some of the photos even compare HTC’s new flagship with the HTC One Max.

The photos have been posted on Weibo. Expect more leaks to come before the device’s March 25 unveiling date. Hit the break below for more.

Samsung Galaxy S5 leaks suggest 2K and 1080p display options

Posted by wicked February - 17 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

The Unpacked 5 event will take place one week from today. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S5 during the event, and in the meantime, it seems the rumors and leaks will continue flowing. This latest round is dealing with the display, both in terms of size and resolution.

There has been a screenshot, reportedly from a Galaxy S5 that revealed the size and resolution. There has also been a Galaxy S5 listing spotted with a Dutch retailer. Interestingly, these are both telling a slightly different story. Of course, before we call either inaccurate, we do have to remember Samsung is known to release different variants based on market.

With that in mind, we should also point out nothing is official until announced direct from Samsung. That said, the screenshot comes courtesy of samsunggalaxys5abonnement.com, and is showing the Galaxy S5 as having a display size of 5.25-inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. This essentially means a ppi of 560, which also accounts for a QHD, or 2K resolution.

The second leak is by way of Dutch retailer Typhone, and picked up by the folks at SamMobile. This one points towards a Galaxy S5 with a lower resolution display. Well, lower, but still 1080p. The listing for the Galaxy S5 doesn’t include anything for an image, not even a render, but does list the display as being 5.2-inches and FHD.

Otherwise, there has also been talk of the Galaxy S5 arriving with a 16 megapixel camera on the back, 3200 mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, and storage options ranging from 32GB to 128GB. The handset is also expected to have either a 64-bit Exynos processor or a Snapdragon 800 and running Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat.

Sony Xperia Z2 “Sirius” leaked screenshots reveals serious camera abilities

Posted by wicked February - 10 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

It may just be a few weeks before the expected unveiling, but details of Sony‘s next flagship have almost all been leaked, except for the final name. This batch of screenshots however, give more insight into the Xperia “Sirius”, its current nickname, and its rather impressive photography capabilities.

Like its predecessor, the Xperia Sirius is expected to have a 20.7 megapixel rear camera. But what Sony is able to do with that component is what really matters. Here we get to see some of the camera apps that will be available that might give mobile photography aficionados something to pine for. There is, for example, an app for shooting 4K videos. one for timeshift shots, and another for taking shots with creative effects. There is some expectation that Sony will eventually also roll out these apps to the Xperia Z1 and its kin, but that is yet to be seen.

Even without the 4K resolution video recording, the Xperia Sirius is expected to still trump the current Sony flagship. Shots of the camera app’s settings reveal that the device is capable of shooting Full HD 1080p videos at 60 fps. That’s double the framerate currently supported by the Xperia Z1. A new mode has also been added for making still shots, with a new 15.5MP resolution. The Xperia Z1 is only capable of shooting at 8MP and 20.7MP at the highest.

As for the rest of the specs, the Xperia Z2 Sirius is said to come with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, and 3 GB of RAM. It is isn’t surprising to see Sony flexing its photography muscles in its high-end smartphones to differentiate them from the rest of the crowd, though it makes one wonder at what point do they become more of a camera and less of a smartphone.

HTC One M8 leaked photo shows dual cameras once more

Posted by wicked February - 10 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

It seems that one of the headliners for HTC‘s next flagship will be a pair of UltraPixel rear cameras, once again “confirmed” by this latest leak. This, however, has a slight, almost unnoticeable difference from the last leak, making us remember to take such images with a grain of salt.

Quite early on, the HTC One M8, the currently used codename for the HTC One successor, has been rumored to have two cameras at the back, both bearing HTC’s UltraPixel camera technology. The reason for this rather novel arrangement is supposedly to help resolve one of the most pesky problems of low-light photography. Whether the HTC One M8 will be able to deliver on that remains to be seen with an actual device.

This new photo seemingly confirms the presence of such dual cameras, as did a previous leaked photo. There is a very small difference between the two photos, however. The older leak showed the dual LED flashes set up separately from each other, in two, unconnected circles. This latest photo, however, shows both to be enclosed in a single elongated hole. There could have simply been a change in backplate design, or one of the two was an earlier prototype.

In addition, another pair of photos seemingly confirm yet another rumor about the M8′s design, particularly that of the navigation buttons. Here we once again see proof of those buttons being integrated into the screen and following more closely the Android standard button order. There is no confirmation, however, of the supposed feature that allows this navigation to be swiped away as desired.

HTC One M8 face seen in pair of leaked photos

Posted by wicked February - 6 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

The stream of leaks about HTC‘s next big hit just keeps on flowing. This time we’re getting a peek at what is supposedly the actual face of the HTC One M8, though, of course, its veracity cannot be assured.

Based on these photos, the HTC One M8 practically looks the same as the HTC One. The only difference is that the bezel around the display is noticeably thinner, which seems to be a growing, and probably welcome, trend among high-end smartphones, particularly phablets, these days. The unit in the photos come in a black color, which somewhat goes against HTC’s previous practice of employing a more brushed metal appearance, at least at launch.

Also noticeable in these photos, or at least one of them, are the on-screen Android buttons. Previous leaks have pointed out that these new buttons are more in line with the default Android design instead of the custom icons used by HTC in the HTC One’s capacitive buttons. Interestingly, one of the photos doesn’t show the buttons. Another rumor says that, while almost confirming to the standard Android look, the navigation bar can actually be hidden by a simple swipe, definitely a deviation from standard behavior.

Of course, all we have are rumors and leaks, including a dual camera setup and even the M8 codename. Whatever the final product ends up looking like, it should probably make a big bang if HTC plans on relying on its next flagship to help it out of its current market situation.

New HTC M8 photos leak

Posted by wicked February - 6 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

m8

We’ve seen plenty of leaked photos of the upcoming HTC M8, and many of them were fake. New pictures (which, admittedly, also could be fake) have appeared on a Russian site, as well as a list of specs.

Here’s what the new information revealed: a 5-inch display (.3-inches more than HTC One), 1080 x 1920 resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB RAM, dual-sensor 5MP Ultrapixel shooter on the rear, Android 4.4.2, and Boomsound speakers.

Take this all with a grain of salt— official word should be coming soon.

A pair of leaked images claiming to be of LG’s new G Pro 2, which is scheduled for launch next month, have been leaked on the Korean forum DC Inside. The unconfirmed photos reveal some similarities to features from LG’s various devices, most notably the rear mounted buttons previously seen on the G2.

Although nothing is confirmed, the device is rumored to have a 6-inch 1080p display with the Snapdragon 800 chip inside and support for LTE-A networks.

With LG deciding to launch the G Pro 2 at MWC 2014, we are less than a month away from finding out if these specs are true, if it will get a fingerprint scanner or if any other features from the G2, such as QSlide, are included.


    







Even more Nexus 5 photos leak, this time from Russia

Posted by wicked October - 14 - 2013 - Monday Comments Off

Nexus 5 front

The Nexus 5 has been a worse-kept secret than the newly unveiled HTC One Max. We’ve already seen an extensive hands on video of the latest Nexus device over the weekend, but today we’re getting even more shots of the device from a Google+ user in Russia. He uploaded a handful of pics of the device alongside the title “From Russia with Love.” Not subtle, but hey, at least we get a few more peeks at the device.

There’s nothing here that we haven’t already seen, before you get too excited. It shows the front of the device, charger placement, the matted back of the device complete with vertical Nexus logo, etc. At this point, I’m honestly more excited for the announcement of the device for Android 4.4, because there are at least a few secrets hidden there somewhere. Hopefully that announcement is right around the corner. You can hit the break to check out the pictures.

Sony Mobile seeks to end leaks

Posted by wicked September - 20 - 2013 - Friday Comments Off

Sony-leaks

As we’ve seen time and time again, upcoming devices’ designs and specs are leaked much earlier than their intended reveal. While many companies like Samsung are good at keeping things a secret, others are not as fortunate. Sony is among the many that has not been so lucky as their newest flagship, the Sony Xperia Z1, surfaced across the web before its IFA 2013 event in Berlin. So today someone snapped a photo at a Sony Mobile office in Asia that exposed some of their rules. With these rules now being posted for employees to see, Sony hopes to at least slow down the amount of leaks for their devices.

Among the list of rules are:

  • Do not use phones without protective cover
  • Do not show phones to individuals outside of Sony Mobile (Unless NDA is signed)
  • Do not upload any pictures to social networks, public webpages etc.
  • Do not use 3rd party benchmarking applications

Sony looks to dry up product leaks with new rules at HQ

Posted by wicked September - 19 - 2013 - Thursday Comments Off

Just like most smartphone manufacturers, Sony has a few leaks somewhere. Details surrounding their latest and greatest smartphones, tablets, and even Lens cameras all seem to leak well ahead of the announcements. Whether these are controlled or not, Sony has just issued some new rules at their HQ aiming to curb and dry up these leaks.

sony-internal-rules

Keeping their new smartphone designs and specs a secret is a hard task, and one they’ve failed miserably at as of late. We knew everything about the Honami, lens camera, and even the Xperia Z Ultra well before they told us. It’s safe to say that faucet is full of holes.

The image above apparently shows one room of many at multiple Sony headquarters where they’re aiming to stop the problem by saying “No More Leakage!” This isn’t aimed at the popular @evleaks account, but more at staff that keeps letting these devices be seen in the wild and photographed next to other devices. We love the leaks Sony, let them continue! Any who, here’s what the paper says.

- Do not use phones without protective covers
- Do not show phones to individuals outside of Sony Mobile (Unless NDA signed)
- Do not upload any pictures to social networks, public pages, etc.
- Do not user 3rd party benchmarking applications

The paper said CONFIDENTIAL and was at the elevator doors, but just like everything else, this new set of rules was also leaked. Mission=failed. The benchmarks are a big one, but so is showing the phone to individuals outside of the company. We have a feeling these won’t be slowing down, but at least they are trying to solve it.
