HTC Desire 820 Confirmed

Only a few days ago, Taiwanese smart phone giant teased an image that hinted towards Desire 816. Now it seems that HTC has inadvertently confirmed that there will be a Desire 820 coming soon, and the smart phone will be targeted for the mid-range market. The company posted 2 images on its Weibo account. The interesting bit here is it seems that HTC 820 will be the first Android to feature a 64 bit, octa core processor.

Despite the fact that HTC has officially confirmed the phone via their Weibo account, we still don’t have our hands on the technical details. The teaser that was posted doesn’t reveal much apart from the date and then there’s ’64′ written which is pretty obvious. There is also a second image alongside the teaser that reveals all the ‘firsts’ that have been achieved by HTC. The second teaser shows us the front facing camera as well as the front speaker grill.

Seems like Samsung is all set to release the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Europe. The Korean giant just released a European firmware that is based on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. The release of the firmware is peculiar and a huge hint towards the imminent release of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in European countries. The firmware is currently available in United Kingdom and Switzerland and hopefully, we will see it making an appearance in more countries as well.

IFA is less than 2 weeks away and will be held in Berlin, we are assuming that Samsung decides to debut the Galaxy S5 LTE-A alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at their press conference. However, there is a chance that Samsung announces this earlier than IFA like it did with the Galaxy Alpha because the spotlight will be given to the Galaxy Note 4 exclusively. Whatever the case is, let’s see how Samsung carries it.  Continue Reading →

The Moto X+1 is back again, but this time, it comes with a sad news. The renowned Twitter leaker @evleaks is now retired and as a retirement gift that was tweeted, we are left with some press shots of the Moto X+1. Indeed a sad day in the history of smart phones as @evleaks have provided us with several leaks that were almost always on the spot. This was a rather shocking news that came out abruptly. That being said, the leak we have this time shows the phone from both the front and the back side and it also matches the previous leaked press shot of the Motorola Moto X+1 giving a more concrete rise to the recent leak.

The press shot we have here shows the phone in 2 different versions, both versions are carrying the Verizon logo on the back. One of the smart phone is in white with wooden back, while the other one is completely black. The design is quite similar to the Moto X. However, we now have front mounted stereo speakers.

HTC Teases Desire 820?

As we are nearing IFA, seems like HTC can’t wait for it. The Taiwanese giant just went ahead and teased what it seems like a successor to Desire 816. The company posted a teaser image on its Weibo account. The image is made up of six different images and top of the images the figure 820 is written. However, it could be possible that HTC releases the phone in China only. But for now, it is safe to say that something is coming pretty soon.

As we all know, IFA is less than 2 weeks away. However, we currently don’t have a shred of concrete information about Desire 820. However, we do have some interesting rumours. Rumours suggest that the Desire 820 will be one of the first phones to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64 bit, octa core processor four Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 1.8 gigahertz and four Cortex A-53 clocked at 1 gigahertz.

LG Announces 2 Budget Friendly Droids

LG just announced 2 budget friendly smart phones that will be taking the stage at IFA, Berlin in less than 2 weeks. These 2 droids will be joining the long going L series. While one offers low end specs, the other one fits the mid-range. The good news is, both the devices will be having Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box that will be covered by LG’s proprietary UI. We are not sure if the UI will be the same as LG G3 because recently, LG said that the company will work on bringing the UI to other LG phones as well.

The first one from the lot is LG L Bello, and it can be said that it is the powerful one from the couple. It offers a 5 inches screen with FWVGA resolution which is rather disappointing considering the standards we are all looking at. The display is IPS so you can at least have natural colours and good viewing angles. The phone also supports 3G. Sadly, there is no LTE on board. On the back, we have an 8 mega pixel camera capable of videos at FHD. A 1 mega pixel camera rests on the front. Under the hood, it boasts a quad core CPU clocked at 1.4 gigahertz, 1 gig of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage that will be expandable via micro SD card. It is powered by a 2,540 mAh battery and measures at 138.2x 70.6x 10.7mm. Continue Reading →
