    You know it's Sunday because of all the leaks that are popping up to get us through the weekend. After seeing the LG Lucid 3, we're now treated to a leaked official press render of another upcoming Verizon phone, this time running another OS, and made by another manufacturer. In case you forgot, there was a so-called Samsung Huron that was making the headlines not so long ago, and apparently the device above is just that. Called the Samsung ATIV SE, it is undoubtedly a follow-up to the 2012 ATIV S, with slight tweaks to the design (more Galaxy S4-ish, if you will). Aside from the usual ...

    Almost a year ago Verizon announced the LG Lucid 2, which was really LG's Optimus F5 tailored to suit the carrier's needs. Since it's been a almost a year, the network operator is probably planning on bringing a new model to its line-up, and the phone above appears to be just that. According to @evleaks, we're looking at the LG Lucid 3. With model number VS876, the Lucid 3 is expected to be a mid-ranger device with the usual Verizon logos and a Samsung-like home button. The overall design of the phone has been tweaked a little and it's more in line with (actually we're almost convinced it ...

    Microsoft Office for iPad has been rumored for quite some time, and, according to the latest bits mentioning the software package, it is expected to debut mid-this-year. However, according to a recent Reuters report, many (individuals and companies) are tired of waiting for the official release and are moving to other offerings. If the news agency's sources are right, Microsoft already has a fully working/final version of its Microsoft Office for iPhone and iPad suites. It is just a matter of releasing it, and that will eventually come down to Satya Nadella's decision. "Certainly, interest ...

    The Sprint HTC 8XT is a "midrange phone in flagship clothing"; that's the tagline of our full review, but even as a midrange, it is a smartphone by definition, running on Microsoft's Windows Phone mobile platform. Sprint apparently doesn't agree with that assessment and has demoted the HTC 8XT, as seen in the image above. Placed under "basic phones", right next to a Samsung, three Kyocera, and an LG device, the Sprint HTC 8XT is undoubtedly the highest end among them, when it comes to the user experience. Is this Sprint's way of saying "nobody buys this phone" or is the Now Network trying, ...

    There was no flagship at HTC's MWC 2014 event -- just the Desire 816 -- and there was no flagship at ZTE's booth either. We know HTC is preparing the 2013 One flagship follow-up for March 25, but, apparently, ZTE has selected the same day for its Nubia X6 launch, according to the image above. The event will take place on the same day as HTC's All New HTC One (tentative name) announcement, but in Beijing. The phablet is expected to have a larger-than-six-inch display with possibly QHD/2K resolution (though Full HD is mentioned in other leaks), and a 13/16MP camera, depending on which ...

    We know, thanks to Oppo, that on March 19 we should expect not one, but two versions of the upcoming Find 7 flagship: one with a Full HD, and one with a QHD/2K screen. We've seen the phone recently leaked, showing off its design, but what we have here, above and below, appears to be a full Oppo Find 7 leak including retail packaging. Accompanying the pictures of the device, and its box, are mentions of some of its specs: Quad HD/Full HD screen, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM. Sadly, we're not seeing the callouts on the camera, which was rumored to bring 50 megapixels to the Android ...

    Available since the end of last year for PureView devices, the Nokia Refocus app allows you to take Lytro-like (light field) pictures with your Nokia-made Windows Phone. The way the app achieves this is simple: it shoots a variety of consecutive frames with different focus settings, after which the user can simply tap on a part of the image to display that region in focus (hence using the proper frame from the burst). The Finns today announced that the Nokia refocus app is now available for all Lumia smartphones that are powered by Windows Phone 8. “As we have seen with the great imaging ...

    Upon returning from MWC, we heard rumors of an upcoming Nokia phone, codenamed Martini, that would run Windows Phone 8.1, aka Blue. A rumor popped up shortly after that there might be an April 19 Nokia event, where said Martini would officially be unveiled, alongside some other Windows Phone devices from the new Lumia line-up. Today, we're hearing new rumors, thanks to @evleaks, that the phone codenamed Martini, will actually be the Nokia Lumia 930. Whether this Nokia Lumia 930 is the same as the one we were expecting to be unveiled at MWC is unknown; however, those rumors mentioned ...

    The Black Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 was announced at the end of January, and we've seen the phone in person with the occasion of our visit to Barcelona for the MWC. Since we were there, we took a little time to compare it to the original Galaxy S4, but don't expect differences, aside from the actual, physical, outer aspect of the phone. Later, Samsung announced that the Black Edition phone will be available in the UK, but at that time there were no details about exact pricing and availability. Phones4U now has the phone listed in its offer and it goes for the same price as the ...

    The LG G2, depending on the region and carrier, was codenamed the D800 (AT&T), D801 (T-Mobile), D805 (Global), and some others. @evleaks has posted a screen grab of an alleged User Agent Profile document that mentions a certain LG D850, believed to be the upcoming G2 successor, the LG G3. While the file doesn't reveal much, aside from the codename (attributed to the LG G3), it does however mention a 1440x2560 resolution, which is QHD (quad-HD), or, in other words, 2K. We know we're expecting the South Korean company to unveil the G2 successor (which will turn one-year old in August), ...

    The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 will come in two storage options: 16GB, and 32GB. However, it appears that you will only be able to purchase the larger capacity variant online, as stores will sell only the 16GB flavor. The information comes from a leaked training document that describes the above-mentioned sales policy for Magenta. While you can already pre-order your device now from the carrier, April (next month) is the month to look out for with regards to US availability. In terms of specs, we should expect the same internals, including the 5.1-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 2.5GHz ...

    March 25 is when the world expects HTC to show off the successor of the 2013 One, tentatively called The All New HTC One. While there is no rumor yet regarding availability -- despite the cornucopia of leaks that show off almost every aspect of the upcoming phone -- HTC has lowered the price for the last year model, probably in preparation for the 2014 One. You can grab the 2013 HTC One discounted for $499.99 (down $100), or you might as well wait for a couple of more weeks and go for the newer version. Don't get us wrong, the 2013 HTC One is still an exceptional device, with a solid ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 will bring a lot of new features to the table, and, thanks to this video walkthrough, we're also seeing a revamped default camera application, which seems to inherit a lot from the Nokia Camera application. We're seeing quick shortcuts to shooting mode selection (auto, close-up, night, night portrait, sports, backlight, as well as the good old lens selector. Additionally, you can customize the icons/shortcuts shown in the viewfinder (including ISO, exposure, scenes, and other useful shortcuts), as well as toggle, like you would expect, flash to off, on, or auto. Check out ...

    Ever since we heard the first mentions of a future possible F-series from Samsung, there have been a lot of rumors regarding this alleged "premium" series of phones from South Korea. The chatter became even hotter after the Galaxy S 5 announcement, where some of the fans (and not only) were disappointed by the general aspect, build, and features of the phone -- advocating for the existence of plans for another flagship launch this year. High-end specs and materials are expected to on the first "F"-phone, and designer Ivo Marić has put together these concept Samsung Galaxy F render stills ...

    Whether this ... thing ... you're seeing above is a phone or a phablet is unknown, but we understand if you wish this patent, recently granted to Samsung, will never materialize. The patent has been granted for "the ornamental design for a mobile phone, as shown and described", and we're looking at a mobile device that seems to have a 21:9 aspect ratio for its screen, often referred to as Cinema Display in the TV industry. There's also an important note, before you jump to any conclusions based on the looks of the above device: "The broken lines immediately adjacent to the shaded areas, ...
