HTC planning to out a new smartphone, codename ‘EYE’

Posted by wicked September - 15 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Gadget leaker @upleaks has come up with news from HTC – one of the major players in the smartphone market that has been relatively quiet in comparison to all who took part in the IFA 2014 gadget rush. But according to the leak, they may be coming up with a new gadget, codenamed the “HTC Eye”.

We don’t know much about the gadget yet – only that it will have a big-ish 5.2-inch screen with full HD (1080p) resolution. That would give it a considerably dense pixel per inch (ppi) ratio of 423, making for a great display. The leaker also mentions that it might come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset – that means a quadcore processor at 2.5Ghz and an Adreno 330 GPU. Considering that only a few manufacturers have justified spending for Snapdragon 805s, the 801 may be the logical choice.

The HTC Eye, in whatever form it may take, is purportedly carrying the 13MP duo camera system that HTC likes to use on its premier phones. It might possibly be that this will be a Windows phone, or that most of the other specs might be taken from the HTC One M8. At this point in the game, nothing is sure yet.

With Google’s Android L launch just around the corner, it would be exciting for HTC to come out with a full-pledged Android L phone. Let’s keep watching this space, and we’ll let you know as soon as HTC lets slip a few more information about this new device.

Galaxy Note 4 the Date Episode 2-3

Our calendar is circled for September 3rd and we are ready to get our hands all over the Samsung Galaxy Note 4! The announcement is only a week away, and with all the details pretty much outed, it’s just a matter of waiting before everything is set in stone. Today we have a little something to get you all hyped up, though – the device’s stock wallpaper.

This QHD-ready (2560x2560p) wallpaper has been leaked and is ready for download. You can even use it on your own devices, but most of us currently sport 1080p phones, so very few can take advantage of the full resolution.


More than anything, it serves as a bit of proof that the display will, in fact, come with a QHD 2560x1440p resolution. Not that we doubted it at this point, but a bit more corroboration is always welcomed.

Those who are curious about other specs can always look back at out previous reports for more Galaxy Note 4 details. Camera and fingerprint reader information was recently rumored. Those are always interesting, but for a Galaxy Note overload you can check out our Note 4 rumor roundup.

Other specs do include a Samsung Exynos octa-core processor or a Snapdragon 805 (depending on your market, as well as that 5.7-inch QHD display, 3 GB of RAM, 16MP/3.68MP cameras and 32 GB of internal storage, among other things. It will definitely be a force to be reckoned with, so let’s stay tuned for IFA!

For now we can all just download this wallpaper and salivate over it. Simply click on the wallpaper, right-click and hit save.

Brazilian retailer comes out with new Moto X+1 listings

Posted by wicked August - 23 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

The website of Brazilian retailer Livraria Logos is becoming notorious for its Moto X+1 leaks, which – if you’ve been living without Internet for the past few months – is of course the code name for the new Motorola flagship device. The new Moto X listings are back on their website though, giving us at least decent info about the new device.

It can be remembered that this is the same website which did a Full Monty on the new Moto X+1, revealing a gargantuan amount of specs for the new device pretty early into the game. Those entries have since been taken down, and what we have here are new product listings with fewer specs, and ideas as to the back cover material being used.

The retailer now lists three Moto X items, corresponding to three different materials used on the back of the device. The first is listed as “preto” or black, then “bambu” or the much-hyped bamboo back cover. Then there’s “couro” which translates to leather.

The website also lists the devices via their numerical code name XT1097, which corresponds neatly to a number of benchmark appearances the device has made. The specs line up to what we have seen in the benchmarks – a Qualcomm processor that clocks from 2.2 to 2.5Ghz, 2GB of RAM, 5.2-inch main display, 13MP main camera, and 16GB of internal storage among other specs. Sounds like this new Motorola flagship is firming up.

Moto 360 accidentally leaked at Best Buy, to cost $250

Posted by wicked August - 18 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Motorola Moto 360 Best Buy Leak

Almost every one of us that is interested in Android Wear and smartwatches have been keeping tabs on the Motorola Moto 360. The Moto 360 promises to be the first round faced Android Wear smartwatch, and was teased to come ‘later this summer.’ To that end, today Best Buy put up, then quickly took back down, their listing for the Moto 360, including price and most specs.

The highlights for Best Buy’s Moto 360 listing include a $250 price tag, a 1.5-inch 320 x 290 resolution 205 ppi display, heart rate monitor, waterproofing up to 1 meter, Gorilla Glass 3 on a stainless steel case with leather band that is all powered by a Texas Instruments processor.

Considering all of the additional features and the somewhat premium build, including the round watch face, the $250 price for the Moto 360 seems very much in line in with the $200 and $229 prices for the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch, respectively.

Perhaps the biggest surprise for many is the listed Texas Instruments processor. While TI and Motorola have worked together in the past, most recent Motorola devices have shipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, as have competing Android Wear powered smartwatches. We know that TI has been innovating in other areas of mobile, it will be great to see what they can do in the Moto 360.

We expect Motorola to announce the Moto 360, and hope that they will also start selling the round faced smartwatch, during their press event at their headquarters in Chicago on September 4th. The event should also see the announcement and launch dates of the next version of the Moto X, which has been referred to as the Moto X+1 and the next version of the Moto G, perhaps to be named the Moto G2 or, less likely, the Moto G+1.

I’ll leave you with the Moto 360 specs list as found on the only Best Buy page we can find that hasn’t been taken down yet. But before I do, even though we’ve asked you before, will you be jumping on the Motorola Moto 360 at $250?

More images of Samsung Galaxy Alpha surface from Russian source

Posted by wicked August - 12 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off


Yesterday we saw where Samsung had quietly slipped the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in as a sponsor for a yachting regatta in Moscow. Today, more images of the device have surfaced thanks to a Russian source. One of the interesting shots shows the results of an AnTuTu benchmark run on the device that puts it above the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. While an Exynos 5 octa-core processor that supposedly powers the device helps, much of the performance gain could be due to the lower resolution screen of the Galaxy Alpha. This frees up the processor for other chores outside of producing graphics and makes a strong case for full HD screens being overkill on devices like smartphones that have small displays.

Outside of the screenshot of a benchmark test, the images are consistent with previously leaked photos of the Galaxy Alpha showing apparent inspiration from Apple.

According to sources in the Netherlands, the device is expected to be available for purchase there starting in September for at least €500 ($668 USD). Other reports from the U.K. have pegged the price at €700 ($935 USD). Samsung is anticipated to make an official announcement about the Galaxy Alpha tomorrow. However, pricing and availability information may not be released until later, possibly at IFA 2014 in Berlin.

New leaked photo shows Samsung Galaxy Alpha full specs

Posted by wicked August - 11 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

As the anticipation continues to build for the official release of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, expected to be announced by August 13, we’re getting a clearer picture of what to expect from the rumoured high-end smartphone (well, if the leaks are to be trusted, that is). New images have appeared on a Brazilian website showing what is supposedly the official marketing material for the Alpha, and it looks like previous leaks got it right.

The 4.7-inch smartphone is rumored to be Samsung’s answer to the soon-to-be released iPhone 6, so we should expect higher specs and higher price as well. The picture confirms that it will indeed have a 1280×720 resolution and will run on the octa-core Exynos processor. It also shows that it has 2GB RAM and a very nice 32GB of internal memory. However, with an option to expand this with a microSD slot. There is also a possibility of a 64GB Galaxy Alpha, so that should be enough for the storage hungry crowd.

The picture also indicates that for connectivity, the Alpha has 4G LTE, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 4.0 and as for the battery, it will be an 1860 mAh one. In terms of the all-important smartphone feature for picture addicts, it has a 12 megapixel rear camera and for your selfie and video chat needs, a 2.1MP one in front. The Alpha also has a fingerprint monitor to make it easier for unlocking and a heart-rate monitor for those who need to watch their ticker.


It’s still not confirmed whether the Alpha will also come up with a bigger version (sources say it might be a 6.7”) as the iPhone 6 is rumoured to have two versions, a 4.7” and a 5.5”. Previous leaks have shown two colors so far, black and white, with a metallic or aluminium body. We’re just a few days away from the reveal, so let’s see if Samsung still has the power to surprise and delight its consumers.

New photos, UAProf of Samsung Galaxy Alpha leaked

Posted by wicked August - 6 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

It seems like some people can’t stop talking about, or rather leaking information about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The rumored high-end smartphone is being positioned as the outright rival of another soon-to-be-released phone, Apple’s iPhone 6. New photos as well as User Agent profiles on Samsung’s website have been leaked, giving credence to those rumors and getting people even more excited about the newest member of the Samsung family.

In the Samsung site, there are five versions of the Galaxy Alpha, with the base model being Samsung SM-G850, with each profile having a letter that tells us what region and/or carrier it belongs to. For example, G850F is for Europe, G850A is for AT&T, G850T is T-Mobile and G850M is Vodafone. The G850H is still a bit sketchy but it may very well be a 3G-only phone, following the logic that the G900H, which turned out to be the Exynos 5 Octa version of the Galaxy S5, is also a 3G-only device.

Meanwhile, leaked photos show a black unit of the Galaxy Alpha, in contrast to the earlier leaked images of a white version of the smartphone. Looks like it will indeed be a metallic or aluminium device and if you put it next to an iPhone, it looks like it is ready to compete with its main rival, at least on the physical side of things. The rumour mill has previously stated that it will be running on Exynos Octa Core 5433, 2GB RAM, 1850mAh and will probably have a 4.7” 720p display and a 12MP rear camera. The specs are pretty much similar as well to the iPhone’s usual features.

Now whether or not Samsung will also be coming out with a 6.7” version of the Galaxy Alpha, to match again the rumoured 5.5” version of the iPhone, is still cause for speculation. All will be revealed soon, if it’s true that the unveiling of the Galaxy Alpha will be this coming August 13.

More images of the Sony Xperia Z3 emerge

Posted by wicked July - 24 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off


We know you still haven’t seen enough of the Sony Xperia Z3, so here are some new images for you! These come from leaks extraordinaire @evleaks and give us a good look at the back and side of the mysterious smartphone.

The rounded edges and familiar back are in tow. We are seeing a smartphone that looks more polished than its predecessor, but keeps that iconic Sony design we can recognize from a mile away. Also on board is the volume rocker, a prominent power button, a dedicated camera button and what seems like a microSD or SIM card slot.


The surplus of Sony Xperia Z3 rumors and leaks may numb your excitement for such photos, but we must point out these do stand out in the crowd. The first set of images didn’t offer great quality, and the second group was nearly as bad (but still better).

Rumored specs include a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 5.15-inch 1080p display, 16 GB of internal storage, 20.7MP/2.1MP cameras and Android 4.4. Those are some stunning components. And while Sony doesn’t seem to be joining the QHD display party, 1080p is nothing to scoff at.

Do remember these are all leaks and rumors. Though they have all been pretty consistent, nothing is official until it is. Take it all with a healthy dose of sodium and let’s stay tuned for more details.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha leak: semi-metallic mini Galaxy S5

Posted by wicked July - 24 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Word has been going around that Samsung is preparing a certain Galaxy Alpha, not the premium Galaxy F/Galaxy S5 Prime that has not yet come to pass (unless you count the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Korea). A bunch of leaked photos and specs have recently come out that paints a somewhat curious picture of this smartphone, which some are poising to be a more direct iPhone rival.

That last bit alone might already raise eyebrows, ruffle feathers, and cause smirks, but let’s try to see why some see the Galaxy Alpha this way. First is the fact, or rather the rumor, that this will finally be the metallic smartphone that many have been hoping Samsung would make for years now. This is somewhat confirmed by this batch of leaked photos, at least partly. It seems that Samsung really finds it hard to detach itself from old habits, so even if the phone uses aluminum at the sides, it retains that perforated faux-leather back cover it started with the Galaxy S5. Not completely premium looking, but the textured cover does afford a better grip.

As for the specs, the Galaxy Alpha seems to sit in between the high-end Galaxy S5 and its mid-level Galaxy S5 mini counterpart. There is a 4.7-inch screen said to be similar to the Galaxy S III, which could mean many things, including a 720p resolution. The CPU and RAM are unknown but internal storage is rumored to be fixed at 32 GB. The curious thing about that is that there will be no microSD card slot this time, definitely something new for Samsung, though probably much to Google’s liking and, yes, similar to an iPhone. Other similarities include a fingerprint scanner, which the Galaxy S5 already has anyway, and, surprisingly, a nano SIM card slot. LTE support is included, believed to be courtesy of the new Exynos ModAP chip.

The feature set and size definitely sounds eerily like an iPhone, especially when you consider that the iPhone 6, or at least one of the two, is believed to come with a 4.7-inch display. Should these two devices match up a bit, we will surely see another round of tirades and finger-pointing between the two arch rivals and their loyal fans. Samsung, however, might beat Apple to the punch as the Galaxy Alpha is expected to be announced sometime in August, while the iPhone 6 will come later in September.

Xiaomi Mi3S makes appearance at GFXBench, specs showed

Posted by wicked July - 21 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

A device tagged as the Xiaomi Mi3S showed up at the databases of benchmarking app GFXBench, and it has included specs of the supposed device. This is in light of Xioami’s upcoming event on July 22 where they will be expected to launch a new handset – and most people are still not sure if it will be the Mi3S, or the Xiaomi Mi4, the latter also backed by numerous leaks.

But to the point at hand, GFXBench shows a device with a 5-inch display at 1920×1080 native resolution. The spec list also but confirms the leaks that the Mi3S will be coming out with the more powerful Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with the Adreno 330 GPU, also boasting of a generous 3GB helping of RAM.

There’s a bit of a mix-up with the cameras, with the GFXBench data putting the cameras at 12MP and 7MP, rear and front-facing respectively. The earlier leaks said that the cameras will be at 13MP and 8MP. The data also puts internal storage at 12GB, with whole device running Android 4.4.3 Kitkat.

With Xiaomi’s event coming up in two days, we are really not sure if they will be launching the Mi3S or the Mi4 – or both, for that matter. But we can see the general trending of the smaller China-based manufacturers trying to challenge the big boys in terms of specs and price range. The Mi3S is touted to arrive at around USD$300.
