Moto X+1 Caught on Camera

Upcoming Moto X+1 from Motorola has been enjoying quite a lot of attention for some time. Appearing in numerous leaks, we now have a very good understanding about how the device will be looking and what specifications it will boast. The latest leak is coming from TKTechNews which shows us the back of the device. Now the back does look quite similar to the ones we have seen in previous leaks, but… there is one small change. It seems that this particular Moto X+1 is touting a leather back. This could very well be a result of customisation done through Moto Maker. There are chances that Denim also makes a debut since it will look really amazing with the phone itself.

The picture reveals that the back is made up of leather, however, there are some signs of it being worn out. We are not sure if it is stock or the phone’s been in someone’s possession as a daily device. If the past leaks are to be true, the leather will be available to you in different colours. The colours we heard about apart from black are; brown, red and blue. Below is the image of the leaked Moto X+1. Continue Reading →

Say Goodbye To OnePlus One Invite System

Almost everyone who is somewhat interested in technology knows about OnePlus and how they stormed the internet with their first ever smart phone and dubbed it as the ‘flagship killer’ of 2014. The catchphrase was somewhat true as the OnePlus One managed to best the likes of Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8. And the best part? The phone was available at the staggering price of $350 (For the 64 gigs version) However, there was a slight issue. To buy a OnePlus One you would have needed an invite, and invites weren’t easy to get.

Well, the good news is that the company has finally decided to get rid of the invite system, instead of the invite system, a newer and much more simpler system will be taking place where you will only need to place a pre-order. According to OnePlus, the system was supposed to go online in September, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, the system will be launching somewhere in October, later this year.  Continue Reading →

If you are wondering how these company have developed the interesting in buying Cyanogen all of a sudden, then hear this out… every one of the mentioned company is interested in building a version of Android that will be based on Google’s OS but will be different in some way.

For instance, Amazon has already developed an OS based on Android that is known as Fire OS that is currently running on Amazon’s Fire phone. Then there is Samsung who has been modifying Android in its own ways and somehow trying to convince Google that the heavily themed, TouchWiz based version of Android is the reason of its success. As for Microsoft, there are chances that Microsoft decides to make phones with Cyanogen on board but why would they do that considering they already have their own mobile OS which has seen a healthy amount of success lately.
