    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 should be the company's flagship SoC, and, while we don't know anything official about it, it's been in the headlines thanks to rumors, reports, and leaks. We expect it to be 35 percent faster than its 810 predecessor in terms of CPU performance, and bring a 40 percent improvement over the Snapdragon 810 in terms of graphics performance. Samsung has decided to ditch the Snapdragon 810 and go with its own Exynos 7420 inside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge (most probably same chip, or 7422 version inside the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus). Whether ...

    The week of September 7 -- with a possibility of September 9 -- is what the latest rumors talk about with regards to Apple's upcoming event. Of course, nothing's certain until we see press invites going out, and, until then, we have to rely on various reports and leaks, like this most recent iPhone 6s assembly leak in the form of a video. When it comes to the iPhone 6c, things aren't clear at all, with so many conflicting rumors hitting from all directions. Last we heard about the iPhone 6c was last week when a report claimed we won't see the phone until the second quarter of 2016 (after ...

    Just a couple of days before seeing the most recent, extensive, picture-based Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus leak, we've heard weird reports of a future possible Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus keyboard cover, and, judging by the leaked image itself (as well as the source of the leak), we have little to no reason to doubt it. Furthermore, the reports don't just stop there, as now we're hearing about a possible price tag for the upcoming keyboard accessory. The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus keyboard is listed on a Dutch retailer's website at 48EUR (58.08EUR with tax), which roughly translates to ...

    There are four more days until the August 13 event when Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in New York. So far, these two devices were among the most heavily leaked once, but whether that's accidental, or on purpose, is anyone's guess. After taking several close looks at the Galaxy Note 5 over the course of the past few weeks, we are now treated with another set of images; this time we're most probably looking at final hardware, as the pictures are claimed to originate from a meeting where a company representative showed off the Galaxy Note 5, and S6 Edge ...

    The Meizu MX5 launched at the end of June but don't expect to see an Mx5 Pro; according to the company's VP, Li Nan, there will be no MX5 Pro this year, as the company aims to become a more important player on the market, thus shifting its focus on a new high-end smartphone family. One Meizu flagship smartphone from said high-end family of products could use Samsung's Exynos 7420 SoC, according to analyst Pan Jiutang. The Exynos 7420 is Samsung's own system on a chip that is powering the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge (and a 7422 variant -- basically identical to the 7420, but with the ...

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 was probably the most controversial and disputed system-on-a-chip that the company has ever made, due mostly to reports of overheating issues, and throttling in order to contain the alleged problem (also reflected in revenue figures). That didn't stop many top-tier manufacturers from including it in their flagship smartphones (LG G Flex 2, HTC One M9, Sony Xperia Z3+, to name a few). The company is expected to share all the details of its upcoming Snapdragon 820 chip next week, but, until then, we are treated to some leaked slides that shed some early light on ...

    We're not even sure when all the rumors began, concerning the presence of (or lack of) a microSD card slot on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5, to be unveiled next week on August 13, together with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and maybe a tablet. While we have seen or heard no evidence concerning this matter, those who claim there will be no memory expansion seem to base their speculation on the fact that the Galaxy S6 (and Edge) don't have one either, and Samsung will likely follow its design, build and materials policy from earlier this year, applying it to the Note 5 too. Now that we've ...

    According to Xiaomi's global vice president, Hugo Barra, online smartphone sales are becoming more and more popular in emerging markets. "The phenomenon of people buying a phone from a phone is now a thing", he said on Thursday, at the Converge technology conference. Around 40% of sales are online smartphone sales in China, he added, while saying that Xiaomi helped accelerate the shift towards, and adoption, of online smartphone sales in India, which, Barra believes, will grow to "30% percent of the total Indian smartphone market by the end of 2015, up from 20% last year", he said. ...

    The picture you see below, claimed to be "very raw material" drawing of the 2015 Nexus, has been leaked suggesting the back layout of the upcoming LG-made 2015 Nexus. It looks like a back cover to us, and we won't debate its veracity, but, instead remain skeptical. The leak suggests that there will be a camera, a flash, and something else, which could be a fingerprint scanner, or another camera. There were rumors that claimed the upcoming 2015 Nexus will feature a 3D camera, and we asked ourselves (and you) whether that would be a good idea or not. Some of us are intrigued by this, but we ...

    Samsung Electronics announced the second quarter financial results for 2015, and, despite being slightly better than previous quarter figures, and in line with expectations, the situation on the smartphone side of the business isn't rosy at all. "Despite the launch of Galaxy S6, improvement to earnings was quite marginal due to low smartphone shipments and an increase in marketing expenses for new product launches", says the official wording. In order to counter this, as well as to continue "the sales momentum for high-end products", Samsung is planning on "adjusting the price of the ...

    Samsung smartphones are becoming better and better at taking pictures. There's no way around it, the Note 4 (and soon the Galaxy Note 5), Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge are exceptional shooters (yes, there are some GS6 and GS6 Edge models that are powered by a Sony chip). However, with phones becoming slimmer and slimmer, there's a real need to slim down components as well. Because of that, Samsung has announced the mass production of a new 16MP sensor that's smaller, with pixels that are only 1.0μm in size. The chip (S5K3P3) is using Samsung's ISOCELL technology, and, according to the ...

    With everything going on with the "2016 flagship killer" and Motorola's new Moto X devices, you might have forgotten about a certain Nokia event for VIPs. We told you about it, and it happened yesterday. What did you miss? Nothing, aside from this super awesome virtual reality camera for professional content creators, called OZO. The press release calls it "the first commercially available virtual reality camera designed and built for professional content creators". What does Nokia OZO do? "OZO captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight (8) synchronized global shutter sensors and ...

    Update: Additionally, you can download Windows 10 installation ISO files here. Despite the fact that Microsoft has officially flipped the switch on the Windows 10 update, you might not be getting your free copy immediately. It might take days, or even weeks, until you can enjoy the brand new OS with its shiny new features. However, there's a way to force the Windows 10 update to your computer, and have it downloaded and installed right away. RedmondPie published a neat tutorial on how to force Windows 10 update onto your PC, and, so far it has been working flawlessly. Just follow these ...

    Some users out there were luckier than others, as Microsoft has started rolling out the Windows 10 update slightly earlier to them. There's no need to be jealous at all, because your free Windows 10 upgrade is already on its way. If you have a PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, the upgrade should be available for you as we speak. However, not all machines that are eligible will get the update instantly, but you will not be left out. After nine months of beta testing, Windows 10 is ready for mainstream. If you have registered to get the update from your taskbar, you will be notified when ...

    Yes, the Moto X is out, and there are two versions of it: the Moto X Style, and the Moto X Play. You can check out their full specifications here. You'll also be glad to know that both of these Moto X variants are configurable via Motorola's own Moto Maker (and the Moto G as well), and that, aside from color options, you can choose between materials like silicone rubber, wood, and leather, available depending on what version of the phone you're opting for. If you're opting for the Moto X Style (or Pure, in the US), you will have the option of choosing a leather material. Motorola is not ...

    The day has come when we can finally put an end to rumors, leaks, reports, and our anticipation, as Motorola has finally unveiled its first phone for today, the Moto X Style (the Moto X Play is the second Moto X variant for this year). Contrary to last year, and the year before, Motorola has decided to introduce not one, but two versions of the Moto X. The Moto X Style is what we're looking at. The Moto X Style features a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 processor, just like the LG G4 flagship. This SoC is a six-core chip and is clocked at 1.8GHz. ...

    If you thought for a second that Samsung is able to stand by while LG appeals to those who are nostalgic about old form factors (clamshell, to be specific), you are wrong. Just yesterday LG introduced the Gentle, an Android flip phone, and now Samsung has officially introduced the Galaxy Folder, another Android flip phone, successor to the initial, first generation Galaxy Folder. The specs of this Android trapped in a nostalgia-generating form factor include a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, 8GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD card to up to 128GB), eight-megapixel main camera on ...

    Motorola's got the Moto G 2015 officially unveiled in India before its introduction at the New York event that's about to happen in an hour or so, at 9a Eastern, today. We think it's safe to assume that whatever information we're seeing regarding the Moto G 2015, will apply to the phone that will be subject, among others, of the NYC event. As some of the leaks suggested, the Moto G 2015 features a five-inch display with 720p resolution (294PPI), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB and 2GB of RAM versions, 8GB and 16GB storage options, both expandable via ...

    Remember Nokia's Z Launcher from about a year ago? Well, now it looks like Microsoft also wants a piece of the Android launcher market, as the Redmond-based giant is working on an application, dubbed Arrow Launcher, which is basically a launcher for Android. You can download the APK and take it for a spin here (needs invite to receive updates post-install), but remember that this is a Beta version, so expect to see some bugs and inconsistencies all the way throughout. What you get with Arrow Launcher is a home page, with another page to its left and right, for a total number of three, a ...

    It's official: Samsung is holding its Unpacked event on August 13, in New York, leaving the IFA announcement model. That won't put an end, though, to all the rumors and leaks; on the contrary, we're seeing more and more pop up, and we already have a feeling that we know every detail regarding the Galaxy Note 5. We sure hope that's not the case, but, after seeing live images of the upcoming phablet (not once, but twice), we now have an additional look at what's in store. The image above and the stills below claim to represent the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, and we think they do a pretty good ...

In case you are catching up: here's the announcement, here are the specs, here's our hands-on, and a quick take on what feelings the phone generates in some of us.

    Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (basically, a larger sibling of the Galaxy S6 Edge) should be unveiled, depending on the report, on August 12 or 13. The Korea Herald's money is on August 13, and, according to a report published today by the publication, Samsung will put more marketing effort into the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus than into the Galaxy Note 5. The information comes from unnamed "industry sources", and, while it may sound strange the first time, it might make a lot of sense if you come to think of it. The Galaxy Note 5 is the fifth generation of a product ...

    You don't have to be born in the early 80s, like some of our team members, to feel a certain nostalgia to the flip phone form factor. We have spent quite some time lamenting about the Android flip phone and its comeback, and yes, we were super excited when we got the chance to spend some time with LG's Android flip phone offerings, the Wine Smart and Ice Cream Smart at MWC 2015 earlier this year. LG seems dedicated to the cause and has announced yet another Android flip phone. The LG Gentle brings a 3.2-inch LCD display with (an ancient) resolution of 480 × 320 pixels, 1.1GHz quad-core ...

    According to a recent report from China, those who have set their eyes on the soon-to-become-official OnePlus 2 will be able to grab one, in a limited supply, starting August 8, via OnePlus' own “Experience” Store in China. We can't really read Chinese, but we'll trust this report, if it all comes down to just reading the text on the card pictured above. As a side note, we all know that the OnePlus 2 is being referred to as the "2016 flagship killer". We've couldn't help but wonder why the manufacturer is feeling so bold, in terms of futureproofing (in a very fast-moving ...
