    Square’s approach to helping buddies send money to each other is kind of smart, so much so that it has driven some envy in the industry. PayPay was really one of the pioneers of the whole concept, but over the years the service has turned into more of a bank than anything else. It only makes sense for the company to ...

    What the heck does Microsoft intend to call its next Lumia smartphones? We've been looking forward to a couple new flagship models for … well, entirely too long now, and now it appears that the phones codenamed Cityman and Talkman are finally nearly ready to arrive.

    Leaks of the iPhone 6s Plus haven’t been easy to come by, just like we saw with last year’s iPhone 6 Plus. It seems that the larger the phone is, the harder it is for leakers to stash units out of the factory. We’ve been flooded with leaks of its smaller sibling, but it’s not until today that we’re able to ...

    The launch of the new Moto 360 appears to be just within reach, but from the myriad ways the smartwatch has managed to already leak, revealing not only two watch sizes but also a ruggedized 360 Sport option, in some ways it may as well have already gone official. From what we've already seen, the new Moto 360 doesn't ...

    What is going on with Samsung's Tizen plans? At least, while Tizen seems to pretty clearly have a future with the company's wearables, popping up most recently on the new Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic, progress has been much slower when it comes to Tizen and smartphones. While we ultimately got the Z1 early this year, we ...

    This year for flagships like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5, Samsung broke from tradition. It had long been that the company would use its own Exynos chips for some regional variants of these handsets, while relying on Qualcomm and its Snapdragon chips for the rest. Instead, 2015 has seen Samsung double-down on the ...

Most recently we've been talking about this handset that may emerge as HTC's fall flagship, the phone identified just the other day as the One A9. ...

    It must be awfully frustrating for Huawei to see its next-gen flagship phone strutting its stuff on the interwebs less than 24 hours ahead of a planned IFA 2015 announcement in Berlin, especially given the Chinese device manufacturer managed to keep a pretty tight lid on visual leaks all this time. Of course, we’ve ...

    With roughly 72 hours left until the formal commencement of IFA 2015, and a slew of exciting mobile announcements scheduled for September 2 and 3, it became less and less likely in the past few days that Motorola would make an appearance at Berlin’s glitzy trade show to unveil the second-generation Moto 360.

    Huawei’s September 2 IFA press event in Berlin, Germany is shaping up to be about something old and something new.
