    If you have opted to share and store your Location History with Google, you know that the Mountain View company will do exactly that: store your every move (well, your smartphone's location). Now, all this data is offered back to you for your viewing and browsing pleasure, in a new feature rolling out gradually to Google Maps: Your Timeline. Google Maps Timeline is, as its name implies, a visual representation of your movements over time. Google emphasizes that the information is visible only to you, and you have the option of deleting certain dates (or ranges), as well as editing the ...

    Apple had its Q3 2015 earnings call yesterday and apparently the numbers are looking really good for the Cupertino-based company. Record sales are being driven by the iPhone and the Apple Watch, according to the information from the earnings call and the official press release. However, aside from "record third quarter sales of iPhone", we didn't get any specific numbers, in terms of units sold or shipped. Putting that to the side, it looks like the success of the iPhone is mostly due to its reception on both developed and emerging markets, as well as an all-time-high in terms of ...

    We only need to put up with 2015 Moto X and 2015 Moto G rumors, reports, and leaks, for about a week or so, as Motorola is holding a special event on July 28, where we will hopefully see both aforementioned phones, and maybe even a ruggedized version of the 2015 Moto X, dubbed the Moto X Sport. Until then, however, we take what we can get, and this report seems to unveil some 2015 Moto G specs. The information has been published on Spanish retailer FNAC's website, but still, we advise you to treat it with skepticism, despite matching some of the information from previous reports. We ...

    It would make a lot of sense for Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in the same color options as the Galaxy S6 Edge, just as it would equally make sense for the South Koreans to unveil special color options to make the larger version stand out. It doesn't really matter now, as we're just speculating, upon seeing these alleged stills purportedly representing a gold Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (or, sometimes referred to as the Galaxy S6+ Edge). The source of the report also published an alleged picture of the device revealing its specifications: Quad HD display (of yet unknown size, ...

    The "2016 flagship killer" -- not our words -- should be officially unveiled at a special event next week, but we already know a lot (almost everything) about the upcoming OnePlus 2 smartphone, thanks mostly to leaks and reports, as well as official confirmation from the company itself. Depending on who you tend to believe, the OnePlus 2 will either have a 13-, or a 16MP main camera on the back. That camera, its output, to be more specific, has been compared by the company's CEO with some popular devices out there. The images posted constitute a OnePlus 2 vs iPhone 6, and OnePlus 2 vs ...

    Flagship UHD (Ultra HD, aka 4K) TVs from Samsung are being referred to, by the manufacturer, as SUHD units, and, if you're planning on purchasing one in the United States, the South Korean manufacturer is giving you a free Galaxy S6 smartphone. A couple of restrictions apply though: the TV of your choice has to be one of the following units, identified with these model numbers: JS9500, JS9100, JS9000, JS8500, JS850D, or JS8600. So, if you're getting one of the aforementioned TVs, a 32GB "Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB device for your selected wireless carrier" can be yours, if you submit ...

    We all want Windows Phone flagships! However, we should understand that it would make little sense to unveil high-end devices prior to Windows 10 Mobile's release, so we're all hoping to see some Windows Phone flagships towards the end of the year. There were a couple rumored, like the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940XL, with some of their specs getting leaked, in addition some details. Then we started hearing about a certain Lumia 950, with some specs mentioned, and now a report turns everything upside down. According to this report from China, the Lumia 940 and Lumia 940XL we've previously heard ...

    More and more smartphone manufacturers, like OPPO, BLU, and others, are releasing dual SIM smartphones. Some of these smartphones support two SIM cards and a memory card for expanding storage, while others employ a microSD card slot/tray which doubles as a SIM tray, disabling expandable memory upon inserting your second SIM card. In any case, a 19% growth in global dual SIM smartphone sales is expected for 2016, according to data compiled by Strategy Analytics, cited by DigiTimes. That translates to 514 million units forecasted for 2016, up from 431 million units in 2015. Additionally, ...

    LG's L-lineup of budget and mid-range smartphones was created with emerging markets in mind, and the LG L Bello from August 2014, alongside the LG L Fino, were part of it. Now the South Korean phone-maker is releasing a follow-up to the L Bello, as the LG Bello II gets officially announced, as a mid-to-low-end smartphone. The LG Bello II features a five-inch display with FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3GHz (of unspecified make and model, but possibly a MediaTek MT6582), 1GB RAM, 8GB of expandable internal storage, eight-megapixel camera, ...

    The reports were spot on; as we expected it to happen, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Tab S2, a possible Android-powered iPad killer. The tablet (or tablets, as there are two screen sizes) were subject to a massive leak over the weekend, but now that the announcement has been made, we can finally rely on official spec-sheets, instead of chatter. There are two models in the Galaxy Tab S2 family: the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch, and the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0-inch. The two fresh slates are identical, except for the screen size (9.7-inch versus 8-inch), physical dimensions (169 x 237.3 x ...

    We've already seen a Galaxy Note 5 render (not the official one, though), aside from all the other rumors, leaks, and reports, and we have a strange feeling that we know almost everything about the phablet Samsung intends to reportedly unveil on August 12. We're certain this is not the case, as the South Korean company might have one or two aces left up its sleeve, but today we get the chance to look at another Galaxy Note 5 render, which is looking real good. Designed by CAD artist Ivo Marić, they show off a Galaxy Note 5 that, to nobody's surprise, looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy ...

    We know little about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, but we do know, from previous rumors, that it should be a tablet which has a design inspired by the Galaxy S6 (front and back), that it's been confirmed by UAProf files, that it should have a Super AMOLED screen, and Samsung should make it official sometime next week (on Monday, July 20, to be specific). Now, according to a different report, based on information from a different source, the Monday, July 20 date is being reconfirmed. And, not only that, but the report claims to have official press images of both models, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ...

    While the leaks just keep on coming and coming, we haven't so far seen anything concerning the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen. We've heard, however, some rumors (especially after seeing those recent cases leak, which revealed the bottom of the device with the flush S-Pen) that the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen would either be somehow automatically ejected via a software command, or could very well be spring-loaded, and the user would have to push it in to release. The image above claims to represent the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen, and, nonetheless, seems to match what we've previously seen in the leaks, with a ...

    A Nokia event will be hosted, for VIPs, on July 28, in Los Angeles; the invite for said event can be seen above, and the title says "NOWHERE", "NOW HERE". Let the guessing game begin: some reports claim that this will be just a "state of the company" meeting where present and future plans will be unveiled and discussed. Other reports claim that this could be an official launch of the Nokia N1 Android tablet follow-up, for the US market. Seeing the "NOW HERE" variation of the title, we're inclined to believe that this will most likely have something to do with Nokia's HERE offering. In any ...

    The weekend leak frenzy continues, this time, with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, the device Samsung intends to reportedly unveil earlier than expected, on August 12; also a device that has been heavily leaked/was subject to lots of reports recently. A recent case leak raises some questions about the S-Pen, while showing off the bottom of the device, which seems to match previously leaked images, as well as a recent non-official render we've seen. The device you see above is allegedly a Galaxy Note 5 prototype; a mule, to be more specific (a device which often features final hardware ...

    If the source of the images you see attached to this post would still be available, we'd say this is just a regular rumor. Whenever a site, page, or content gets pulled (even if it's coincidental), questions get asked, and, most of the times, adds to the credibility of the story. This is the case we're looking at today, pun intended, as we're looking at some leaked images of what is claimed to be the case/shell of the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus. We heard that Apple might retire 16GB versions with the 6s models, so there's that to look forward to, and the pictures you see above and below. ...

    While we're eagerly waiting for additional information regarding Samsung's alleged earlier announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 -- with more and more reports coming in -- we have to admit that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has been somewhat neglected by the rumor mill recently. Don't worry, the upcoming phone is back in the headlines with this report from today that allegedly brings us a dummy of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus pictured in the stills above and below. If it wasn't for the Galaxy Note 4 in two of the four leaked Galaxy S6 Edge Plus dummy pictures, we'd be inclined, and nobody ...

    When OnePlus announced its first smartphone -- fifteen months ago, on April 23 -- the OnePlus One, the company called it the "2014 flagship killer". The smartphone had eight months to prove whether that statement was right or wrong, and, the answer is really up to you. Regardless of whether you think it succeeded or not, OnePlus managed to create a real buzz on the market (not only because of its popular smartphone, but also because of the way it handled pre-orders, some marketing missteps, etc.). The soon-to-be-announced OnePlus 2 doesn't have eight months to prove the company's ...

    We heard a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. You can check out everything we know about it here, including the possible August 12 launch date, specs, renders, leaks, as well as the possibility of Europe seeing the device later than other regions. Today's report seems to confirm the rumored August 12 announcement date -- and, with so many different confirmations from so many different sources, we might as well just take it for granted -- as well as availability for certain markets nine days later, on August 21. While we're waiting for the device to get official, how about we take a look ...

    Just recently we looked at some leaked, real-life images, of the upcoming 2015 Moto G, and what we have here (in the image above), might very well turn out to be the 2015 Moto X. We can't say we're skeptical but we're a bit confused, as Motorola is preparing several handsets, according to some recent filings, as well as leaked images of backplates. Talking about those backplates, the phone in the image above looks to be exactly the one on the left in the image below. That doesn't make things any clearer, and, while it might very well be the 2015 Moto X, it could also be another Droid that ...

    July 28 is when you should prepare to hear official word from Motorola on the 2015 Moto G, according to a recent report, one that also confirms some of the upcoming phone's specs, as well as hints that the device will be waterproof. We've already seen renders of the device, and even some alleged images and videos, but this set of stills clearly claims to depict the upcoming 2015 Moto G in the flesh (well, plastic, silicon, and glass). According to the leak, the 2015 Moto G will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, like previously rumored, and 2GB of RAM (different reports claimed ...

    The Indian Ministry of Home Affairs has given the green light -- after 19 months from the official applications, and surrounded by "national security concerns" -- for Chinese telecom giant Huawei to start manufacturing equipment in the country. India is one of the largest markets for mobile phones in the world (with over 975 million subscribers) and Huawei will be able to supply future customers with products made locally (in accordance with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Make in India" campaign). "India is an important overseas market for Huawei. We aim to become a top three brand in ...

    Some interesting numbers are in from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT). DigiTimes is citing said figures to reveal that last month (June), China alone has shipped 33.77 million smartphones (of the total of 38.12 million handsets); despite the large number, it is down 8.7 percent (10.2 percent for total handsets) compared to the same period of last year. However, out of those 33.77 million smartphones shipped, 30.92 million were Android smartphones. To put things into perspective, China shipped 237 million handsets in the first half of the year, ...

    "We are working on an update for Surface, which will have some of the functionality of Windows 10. More information to come", said Microsoft back in January, shortly after unveiling Windows 10 upgrade plans (free upgrade for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1). Windows RT was not part of the list, and said update we heard about back in January is likely to arrive in September. Microsoft's Gabriel Aul (General Manager OSG Data and Fundamentals team) took it to Twitter to inform Windows RT users, owners of a Surface RT, that "Windows 8.1 RT Update 3 will be available in September". There are ...

    It was almost a month ago that we told you first about a so-called OPPO Mirror 5, a (back then) upcoming phone that looks to have been inspired by HTC's Touch Diamond from the good old days, in terms of its diamond pattern back. Well, the OPPO Mirror 5 is now official, granted, without a big fanfare, and you can all own its "Sparkling Diamond-like Mirrored Surface", "designed with individual cut-glass sections and different reflective tendencies, all crafted using a sophisticated ultraviolet embossing technique". Behind all the diamond-like shine there's a five-inch TFT screen with 960 ...
