    The Sony event at the Berlin IFA 2014 is just hours away, and the leaks keep on coming, trying to anticipate even more of what we'll probably see. Yesterday we've seen an alleged picture of the Sony Xperia Z3, with a spec-sheet glued to its back; that piece of paper, among specs, also mentioned a copper flavor, alongside black and white, and it's that exact new variant seems to have leaked today, in the images above and below. There's little to see here, aside from the new copper Sony Xperia Z3, but the image below also seems to feature a fourth color; call it yellow, green, or lime, it ...

    On August 27, Samsung announced the Gear S, a smartwatch we're expecting to meet in person at the upcoming IFA 2014, a smartwatch that supports 3G on your wrist, with the help of a SIM card slot. The two-inch curved Super AMOLED display give it a unique touch, while the smartwatch itself comes with a flexible band out of the box. However, today Samsung announced an extension of its partnership with Swarovski, for the "Swarovski for Samsung" collection, which now contains the newly announced Gear S. It's about a Gear S strap, for those of you who love your bling-blings visible; you can now ...

    Sony should unveil its next flagship, believed to be the Sony Xperia Z3, at the upcoming IFA 2014 in Berlin. All the rumors and reports seem to agree on this, and the company itself has started teasing, however, without a specific mention of the phone itself. The picture above is allegedly one snapped off of a real-life unit, which seems to have a sheet glued to its back with the Xperia Z3 specs. While the accuracy and veracity of the picture itself can't be verified, the specs we're seeing seem credible enough. We're looking at a 5.2-inch 1080p TRILUMINOS display, quad-core Snapdragon ...

    We've heard a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in the past, ranging from rumors and leaks to spot-on reports that predicted the phone would be launched today. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha announced today is, according to the official press release, "the evolution of Galaxy Design", and the phone maker is proud to unveil its new design approach. "Sophisticated design in a carefully constructed compact body" is the tagline for the device that has a metallic frame (sorry, no unibody design for those who expected it based on previous rumors). “The Galaxy Alpha was built and designed based on ...

    The original phone (tablet) that we thought would be a follow-up to last year's Galaxy Mega line-up turned out to be the Samsung Galaxy W, with its seven-inch display, leaving the two Mega handsets (5.8-inch and 6.3-inch models) without successors so far this year. However, the South Korean phone-maker has been silently working on the projects, and the device you see pictured above and below might be the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. The pictures popped up on Chinese certification website TENAA, and they apparently depict the SM-G7508Q model number. We're looking at a six-inch device with 720p ...

    A set of leaked images, above, and below, has surfaced on the internet, in the shape of what appears to be official press renders of an upcoming HTC device. If the images are legit, then we're looking at the HTC Butterfly 2, a follow-up to the J Butterfly, a phone destined for Asian/Pacific markets. Aside from specs rumored -- including a five-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD), 13MP main shooter with Duo Camera, and a five-megapixel webcam -- the Butterfly 2 will apparently also sport a water and dust proof build, with ...

    Just as we suspected, the iPhone 6 rumors continue to surface. After previously seeing purported pictures of the retail box -- which raised a few questions though, with a safe to assume conclusion that we were looking at a Chinese knockoff, the GooPhone I6 -- we are now seeing, above and below, what is claimed to be a picture of the iPhone 6 backplate. In the image above we can take a close look at the camera, the flash, as well as the microphone on the back, while the picture below seems to show off the back of the device in its entirety. We can't verify the veracity of these iPhone 6 ...

    Last year's HTC One line-up consisted of the One (M7), One Mini, and the One Max. We're pretty certain that we're looking at the same trio for 2014 as well, and, with the One (M8) and the One Mini 2 already out, rumors are starting to build up around the One Max successor. Some refer to it as the M8 Prime, but we prefer to go with the HTC One Max 2 tentative denomination. According to the report, we should be expecting a phone that looks "exactly" like the One M8, which is really no surprise. Said device will allegedly no longer feature a fingerprint scanner, like the One Max did on the ...

    We don't expect iPhone 6-related rumors, leaks, and reports to slow down; on the contrary, we're anticipating that more and more will surface until Apple will finally unveil the 2014 smartphone line-up, which everyone takes for granted will contain two iPhone 6 devices with larger screens, at 4.7 and 5.5-inches. We've recently seen some Apple logos being leaked, indicating that they most probably will not glow, and now we're looking at what is claimed to be the iPhone 6 retail box. While the veracity of the pictures (above and below) can't be verified, we're left with what we're seeing. ...

    It was just about this time last year that we were asking some valid questions about the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom: Is it a phone? Is it a camera? Who would buy it? Why?!? One year later, its successor has reached the market with the same functionality and almost the same form factor. Now we're asking the same questions in our Samsung Galaxy K zoom review below, though we're not quite sure we'll be able to answer this time around, either. If you don't know what the S4 zoom was, and what the K zoom is, just take a look at the images below. You see, you have to look at both of them, because if ...

    Facebook for Windows Phone will get a major update today, according to official word from Microsoft. If you're using a phone powered by Microsoft's mobile OS, and are an avid Facebook user, you should be on the lookout for an update which will bring a new, fresh look, as well as features which were previously available in the Beta version of the app. The performance of the app will also be improved in this new version, and users will be able to upload videos taken with the device directly to from the app. Additionally, if you're running Windows Phone 8.1, the new Facebook app will ...

    We have previously compared the camera performance of the Galaxy K Zoom with the incredible shooter on the Nokia Lumia 1020, and now it's time to continue are detailed look at the performance of this camera/phone hybrid, with our Samsung Galaxy K Zoom vs Sony Xperia Z2 camera comparison. It was very clear to some of you which one of the aforementioned performed better, taking the camera as the single factor, so now make sure to watch these samples closely. On one hand, we've got the the Galaxy K Zoom, which relies on physical lens to offer up t0 10x optical zoom to images it captures using ...

    There was no shortage of leaks regarding the LG G Vista, and, while some of them were a miss, others were spot on regarding its availability date and upcoming specifications. As predicted, the phone is available today, July 31, online, from Verizon Wireless, and it goes for $99.99 with a two-year contract (or $19.99/month on Verizon Edge, or $399 outright). The Verizon LG G Vista specs, as expected, include a 5.7–inch qHD display (that's 940x560, unfortunately not Quad HD, like the G3), a resolution that is rather small for such a large display form factor. Also in is a 1.2 GHz ...

    By the time you folks are reading this, I'm probably half-way to my destination at the Adriatic Sea. Taking a vacation for the first time in years was one of the most difficult decisions I had to recently take, but I'm leaving -- for a tad more than a week -- knowing that Pocketnow is in good hands with my dear colleagues I couldn't be more proud of. The Nokia Lumia 1020, with its camera grip case, is the main phone I'm packing, and you know why that is: pictures. I don't plan on taking a lot of pictures, but those that I do choose to take, I want them to be good, and the Lumia 1020 is my ...

    The last time we compared Samsung's zoom-enabled offering, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, with a PureView camera, it was the one on the Nokia 808 PureView. Many things have changed since then, and both manufacturers have improved on the already great shooters. Samsung has released the follow-up device, this time, named the Galaxy K Zoom, and Nokia managed to take its PureView camera to the next level (and platform), with the (by now renowned) Lumia 1020. We're still asking the same question like one year ago. Which one is best: physical lens doing optical zoom, or the PureView technology? That's ...
