LG G3 Display Allegedly Confirmed

LG’s upcoming flagship smart phone, or phablet if I may say so, happens to be one of the most talked about devices. We’ve been treated with quite nice details about it, including a leaked screen shot showing new and improved flat UI as well as some alleged specifications of the phablet. But so far, there’s no solid word on what the future awaits. Now we have our hands on another leak that further strengthens the rumour about the phablet sporting a QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels)

The leak this time is brought to us by UberGizmo, the source has proved to be quite legit in the future with several leaks that were spot on, so there’s quite a lot of hope regarding this to be true. This time, the leaked picture also gives us a glimpse of the device itself, it also reveals the pixel density of the phablet which is apparently the highest we’ve seen in a smartphone/phablet. The LG G3 is alleged to have QHD display along with a whooping pixel density of 640 dpi.  Continue Reading →

Samsung Galaxy K Goes Official

We’ve been hearing some rumours about the upcoming phone/camera hybrid called Galaxy S5 Zoom. Earlier this month, we heard a rumour that the device will be called Galaxy K Zoom, we were also treated by a leaked image of the phone’s rear. Now, we have an official from Samsung itself that the device exists and will be called Samsung Galaxy K, this confirms the previous rumours as well. Though Samsung didn’t announce the phone as of yet.

Samsung took the stage on Twitter and posted an image of an invite, the company is now sending invites to all the media out there. The event will be taking place on 29th April, later this month and will take place at Red Dot Museum in Singapore, It’s pretty clear from the image that the upcoming device will be known as Galaxy K. The image also reads “Kapture the moment”, this further strengthens the fact. Moving on, it’s being said that the company is launching a new series all together so it’s highly unlikely that the phone won’t have a lot of resemblance to the Galaxy S5. Continue Reading →

A Cheaper HTC One M8 in Works?

HTC recently revealed the One M8 and it ended up being quite impressive, the phone had impressive hardware and the build quality was phenomenal, for those who don’t know. The flagship had 90 percent aluminum in the chassis. Now a report suggests that HTC is planning on releasing a cheaper version of the flagship device that will be built using plastic instead of brushed aluminum.

Since it’s still a rumour and can be completely wrong, we’d suggest you to take this with a grain of salt. Though if this happens, it won’t be surprising. We’ve been hearing news about an HTC One M8 Ace that will be releasing soon, could it be the rumoured smart phone?  Continue Reading →

Galaxy S5 Active Emerges Again

After Samsung announced the Galaxy S5, we hoped that there won’t be an active version given the phone already came with the water and dust protection, but evleaks had something else in store for us. After about a month, we reported a leak that came from evleaks suggesting that Samsung is planning to release an Active variant of the Galaxy S5, but the details at that time were pretty scarce, plus there was no official confirmation from the company itself.

Now, the phone is under the spotlight again, this time around evleaks tweeted a list of APK (Android application package) that will be accompanying the Galaxy S5 Active.  Continue Reading →

Motorola Moto X2′s Teaser is Back

About a week ago, we reported about Motorola’s upcoming Moto X2/X  +1 the successor of Moto X getting teased on Twitter, and today, we have some more information. The source once again is the same as before. For those who don’t know, Moto X’s one of the most redeeming factor apart from the impressive processing technology was the ability to customise every inch of your phone using the Moto Maker. This earned a critical acclaim. Motorola, however, didn’t include the same feature in Moto G.

Now it seems the company’s deciding to bring the same feature back, thanks to evleaks, but there isn’t much information about this being as versatile as the previous one. Evleaks took the stage on Twitter and posted a picture that shows us the colour options you will get to choose for the back plate of Moto X2/X +1. Apart from the colour options, we will also get to choose the type of material we want for the back. The listed materials are wood and leather, each then have different colours as well. In total, there will be 25 options for the back panel of the smart phone.  Continue Reading →

Samsung Galaxy S5; Another Record Breaker

Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 back in February, earlier this year at MWC. The phone managed to get equal amount of criticism and appreciation. Now the news suggest that flagship from the Korean giant has managed to break the sales record that was previously set by its predecessor; Galaxy S4. According to a report by the Korean website ZDNet, Galaxy S5 managed to beat the Galaxy S4 in sales by over a 30 percent of margin. The numbers are quite impressive and hardly a surprise as we all know Samsung’s known for outdoing themselves.

Moving on, in several European countries, the sales of Galaxy S5 managed to beat the Galaxy S4 with a margin twice as much. According to Samsung, the sales would’ve been higher but the several stores ran out of stock in several places. In places such as Amsterdam, Paris and London countless people swarmed in front of the key Samsung stores in order to get their hands on the flagship itself.

Today, thanks to @evleaks again, we got our hands on a rumour, that a red HTC One M8 will be heading exclusively to Verizon. Though new other details were given.
