    The LG G Watch has been in the headlines for quite some time, and, with Google I/O just hours away, we finally get some information on its release date. That, together with another Android Wear smartwatch bit, this time, from Samsung, paints a nice image of when these Google-powered wearables will be released. The LG G Watch has been spotted online on e-tailer websites like MobileFun (in the UK and Australia). It is currently listed with pre-order status, but it will apparently start shipping on July 7. Prices vary from region to region, but are around the €223.99/$255 mark. You can ...

    We're getting closer and closer to the iPhone 6 release date, as there are preparations on both the software and the hardware side. Apple has recently released a second beta of iOS 8, while we recently caught a glimpse of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in a leaked photo. Next month, July, is when mass production of the largest iPhones ever will start, according to a recent report quoting "people familiar with the plans". While there is no exact iPhone 6 release date yet, the sources claim that the smaller of the two, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might ship to retailers around September. As far as the ...

    The Samsung Exynos 5433 was initially mentioned in an early June report, when we heard of the company's plans to skip the 5430, and go with the Exynos 5433 instead. On that exact note, there were rumors claiming that one of the upcoming Note 4 models will indeed run on the Exynos 5433 chip, while another variant, for Samsung's home turf, would be powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC from Qualcomm. Apparently, as you can see in the image above, the Exynos 5433 has been benchmarked by AnTuTu. That, by itself, is not a huge deal, but the fact that it managed to get a higher benchmark score than ...

    Nokia has killed Symbian, as a direct effect of the Microsoft strategic alliance, when the Finns decided to go Windows Phone. Last summer, Nokia was reported to stop shipping Symbian phones altogether, and the 808 PureView was the last of its (Symbian) breed. Now that Nokia is a part of Microsoft --its devices division anyways-- we're looking forward to what is believed to be the Nokia X2. There are less than 20 hours (at the time of this post) until the event where the Android-powered Nokia X will get a follow-up. While the general consensus was (and still is), that it will be a phone ...

    We've recently heard some reports mentioning the future possible size and launch details of the upcoming Apple iWatch, but this latest bit from the Wall Street Journal -- which is most of the times accurate when it comes to Apple -- seems to contradict to a certain extent the previous Reuters report. Today's report claims that there will be not one, but "multiple versions" of the iWatch. In addition to this piece of information, we're also being teased with the fact that Apple's wearable "will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness". The report is based on ...

    The Oppo Find 7a's bigger brother will soon reach customers' hands, as the phone is available for pre-order, but those who don't care about a 2K display, or want to take care of their budget, will go for the Find 7a instead of the Find 7. Speaking of it, there's an Oppo Find 7a update ready to be downloaded and installed, with some changes and features inside. Aside from smart cover support, you can now unlock your phone with your voice. For a full list of changes contained in the x9006_12.A.05_INT_005_140605 Oppo Find 7a update, check the screenshot below. It weighs just a little under ...

    Wearable devices are increasingly popular among technology enthusiasts. However, the smartwatch is just one of the products in the wearables category, and, apparently, it is performing worse on the market than other wearable solutions. According to a Digitimes report based on numbers from ABI Research, the activity tracker is outselling the smartwatch. The ratio is four-to-one in the activity tracker's favor. 2.35 million activity trackers were shipped in the first quarter of the year, meaning that those who bought a smartwatch were less than 600,000. "Activity Trackers are currently the ...

    There has been a lot of back and forth regarding the existence of a Nexus 6 this year, ever since Android Silver popped up on the radar. Some of us think, and many agree, that there is a real need for a Nexus 6 this year, despite Android Silver. While some think that there might be no Google phone at all, other reports claim that there will indeed be one, regardless of Silver, or Nexus. What seems to be sure, is that LG won't be making it, so it seems, at least if Ken Hong, LG's Communications Director is to be believed. "I know at least not yet. Normally, we were informed. This can mean ...

    The Apple event for devices is still months away, but the iPhone 6 (in both its incarnations, with different screen sizes) has been rumored, and leaked,  numerous times. However, we're yet to see some solid iPad Air leaks, but this one from today might just represent the start of the leaks to come. Call it iPad 6, the New iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or whatever you like, the pictures above and below claim to depict just that: Apple's iPad Air refresh. At a first glance, not much has been changed. The thing that you will immediately spot is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that looks to make its ...

    There is a special event happening tomorrow, where it is believed that the Amazon smartphone will become official. We've been hearing about the device for years now, and it looks like June 18 will be the date to look out for. The fate of the Amazon smartphone depends on many variables: aside from specs, and price, carrier interest is also crucial for the survival of the device. According to the Wall Street Journal, AT&T will be the American carrier which will exclusively carry the Amazon smartphone. Another, earlier, WSJ report claims that the selling point of the device will be its ...

    LG phone sales are expected to grow 20-30% this second quarter of 2014, according to a report citing "sources at the handset supply chain in Taiwan". The reason behind the growth is reportedly the good performance of the current flagship, the LG G3 (pictured above), on the market. Those percentage numbers mean that LG could very well sell 15-16 million smartphones in this quarter, as the G3 has already sold 100,000 units in its home country, South Korea, in the first five days of availability. The G3 flagship is expected to generate sales figures in the neighborhood of 10-12 million ...

    Just like in previous years, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 4 at this year's IFA in September. Though almost three months away, we're already seeing more and more reports on the upcoming phone. These reports seem to indicate that the upcoming 2014 phablet will have the model number SM-N910. A SM-N910A device popped up both on Samsung's website, in form of a User Agent Profile mention, as well as on India's Zauba, a website tracking import and export activities. The SM-N910A could very well be an upcoming AT&T version of the phablet, meaning that Samsung has started ...

    The last time we've seen this phone was with the occasion of a recent Samsung Galaxy F leak that placed the allegedly metallic phone next to the current Galaxy S 5 flagship. Since we only saw the front of it, we could only guess that it was a black/grey version, pretty much like the one in this leak. However, there was also a white Samsung Galaxy F leak in form of a press render, and now we're seeing another color. Gold, or champagne, call it as you wish. There's really not much info here, and there are few things we can comment upon. The back seems to be brushed metal, or a very good faux ...

    The closer we get to Apple's yearly iPhone event, the more and more leaks seem to indicate that there will be two models with two different screen sizes. As we slowly start taking this for granted (until Apple proves everyone wrong, or not), we're even seeing reports and opinions on the pricing for the two upcoming models. Today though we're seeing an iPhone 6 leak, in a set of pictures purportedly depicting a real-life 5.5-inch iPhone 6 physical “dummy” mockup (next to the 4.7-inch version). The space grey version can be seen above, while the champagne gold can be seen below. ...

    "In the past, Qualcomm would just offer the chips and the manufacturer would do the whole device", said David Tokunaga, one of Qualcomm's senior directors in product management. Chip manufacturers, however, in order to increase their own business, are helping out their own customers (smartphone makers). They do that by offering an entire package of services, instead of just a product (the chip). "Now we offer a whole hardware ecosystem that makes it very easy for customers to just plug and play what they want", added Tokunaga. Reuters reports that chip manufacturers are also helping ...
