    You've probably read everything regarding the newly announced OnePlus 2 "2016 flagship killer", if you're a fan of technology. 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. However, here's a list of what you won't find on the OnePlus 2: NFC Quick Charging Wireless Charging microSD card support AndroidPolice asked about the lack of NFC. OnePlus said "we heard from a lot of users of the One and saw most of our users weren't using NFC". So, blame your fellow OnePlus One ...

    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 ...

    Update: after a closer inspection of the image below, we believe we are seeing a curvature on the bottom left side of the image (corresponding with the right edge of the phone (and the phone's case)), lending some credence to those rumors that claim the Galaxy Note 5 might have a curvature on the back, similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge's front. What do you think? We've already seen a real life picture of an alleged Galaxy Note 5 prototype (mule), and, more recently, we've seen stills purportedly showing a Galaxy Note 5 in its full glory, together with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Today, we're ...

    According to this report from Vietnam, yes, HTC is indeed working on an HTC One Max 2. Said HTC One Max 2 phablet would, according to the report, see the official light of day sometime after the HTC Aero unveiling (in October, claims the same report). The (first and) last time we've seen an HTC phablet was in 2013 with the One Max, when the Taiwanese company "tweaked" the One M7 flagship, reused its design, inflated to phablet size, slapped on a fingerprint scanner (on the back), tweaked the specs a bit, and revealed the product. In 2014, HTC skipped the One M8-based One Max 2, so, if this ...

    In these images you can allegedly see a Moto G 2015 unboxed early. With all the recent leaks around the soon-to-become official smartphone, we have no reason to doubt the veracity of these stills. The phone has been heavily leaked, from pictures, to rumors, from its looks and Moto Maker options, down to its specs. You can find everything here, in our dedicated Moto G 2015 hub. The box shown, despite having its text in Portuguese (so probably either a European local version, or a Brazilian unit) features a black unit with a blue and green cover (Motorola Shells), and, as you can see in the ...

    Every year Samsung releases its flagship (in the case of 2015, flagships, if you consider the S6 Edge a different phone, and not a variation of the Galaxy S6) smartphone, and, later during the year, introduces several versions, from Neo to dual-SIM variants, from Active to Mini flavors. The Galaxy S6 Active is already official, and, if you ever though that this year you won't see a Galaxy S6 Mini, well, you are wrong, if the leak we're looking at is accurate. The images above and below are claimed to represent the upcoming Galaxy S6 Mini. As you can see, it follows the design language ...

    July 27, Monday, is when the world will see OnePlus 2, officially referred to by its manufacturer as "the 2016 flagship killer". The launch event will be live streamed, however, via virtual reality, and OnePlus has made its launch event app available on the Google Play Store. You can find it at the source link below, and, once the event starts, you will be able to watch it with the help of the app (with or without a Cardboard) that will launch the stream. This year too, OnePlus will use an invite system to sell its OnePlus 2 smartphone. If you're interested, you can now secure your invite ...

    Speaking of the Galaxy Note 5 (which recently had its specs leaked by a benchmark result): if the leaked real life pictures we've seen are legit, then this render is definitely as close as it gets to the upcoming real deal. They come from the same CAD artist we learned to appreciate over the past couple of weeks, Ivo Marić, and they show off a black Galaxy Note 5. While this is a concept render, and, by no means, something official, it sure looks as it could very well be. The front definitely matches the live picture (we've done a side-by-side for you at the top). Below, you can see the ...

    If all the leaks continue at this pace, Samsung will soon run out of things to announce at its August 12/13 unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5 (and possibly the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and Gear A round smartwatch). We can't say we're complaining though: you can browse all the recent leaks, rumors, and reports here, but we'll have to mention the latest two, dealing with the non-self-ejecting S-Pen, and of course the alleged live pictures that leaked recently (one of them seen above). While we know to expect, thanks to previous leaks, a powerful Exynos 7422 SoC and 4GB of RAM (among other things, ...

    What comes after the LG G Pad? The LG G Pad 2, of course. The LG G Pad was announced at the 2013 IFA, more or less two years ago, and the South Koreans circled back to the 8.3-inch tablet in May 2014, adding three more to the G Pad family, measuring 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inches in diagonal. It might skip the 2015 IFA, but the LG G Pad 2 is definitely coming, if this leak is to be believed. October is when the LG G Pad 2 should become official, and the report claims it will sport the same screen size of 8.3-inches, a somewhat lower, Full HD resolution (compared to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) on the G ...

    We'll be honest with you: we have no idea what to make of this, and, besides the fact that automated translation from Chinese doesn't really help us out here, we're looking at a report, so here are two reasons to keep skeptical. We can, however, speculate based on what we see, and we see these two images (which we can't verify, so they could very well be fakes as well) suggesting something regarding the next James Bond movie, and a smartphone. Sure, we could easily chalk it up and conclude that Sony will release an Xperia Z5 later this year, which will be "the James Bond phone", and Sony ...

    The HTC Aero should be the company's upcoming smartphone, with Gorilla Glass 4 that's 2.5D, and a QHD display, if the rumors are true. The HTC Aero should also be the smartphone that would bring an improved camera -- something many have complained about on recent HTC phones -- but we have been amped so many times about HTC's upcoming phones that we'd like to play it safe now and remain skeptical. The HTC Aero will allegedly make its way to AT&T's line-up, according to a recent Evan Blass tweet. The tweet also calls the HTC Aero the "HTC Hima Aero"; Hima was also the name used to ...

    The latest numbers are in from IDC, looking at the smartphone market for the second quarter of 2015. According to the latest preliminary release from IDC, a total of 337.2 million smartphones were shipped worldwide in Q2 of 2015, which represents an 11.6% increase from the 302.1 million units in the second quarter of 2014. As you'd expect, Samsung and Apple continue to dominate the smartphone market, but IDC notes that Samsung is the only one in the top five that recorded a shipment volume decline year over year. The report notes that, while the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge "arrived with ...

    There's a real increase in budget smartphone demand in Japan, claims a recent DigiTimes report. Apparently, users in Japan are looking for inexpensive SIM-free smartphones, and ASUS seems to benefit a lot from this trend (becoming the third smartphone vendor in Japan, after Apple and Sony). The report claims that ASUS ZenFone sales have been booming recently in Japan as a direct effect of this market behavior, something other manufacturers (and competitors) have noticed and are preparing to adapt. Taiwan ODMs (original design manufacturer - a company that designs and manufactures a ...

    Strategy Analytics has revealed some figures, cited by DigiTimes, concerning smartphone AP revenues. An AP (application processor) is basically the SoC (system-on-a-chip), also known informally as "the processor" which supports applications running in a mobile operating system environment. 20 percent increase over the previous year is what Strategy Analytics' findigs revealed for smartphone AP revenues in the first quarter of 2015. These revenues represent US$5.3 billion, and the top five spots (related to revenue) are where you find Qualcomm, Apple, MediaTek, Samsung LSI and Spreadtrum ...

    ...and the leaks continue, and we frankly don't see them stopping or slowing down, at least until August 12 (or August 13), when Samsung will allegedly hold its official announcement event for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Today's leak comes from the UK where MobileFun published what are claimed to be real life pictures of the Galaxy Note 5 (above), and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The Galaxy Note 5 in these alleged images looks like a design combo of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 4, which is not a bad thing. No, it doesn't seem to have a 2.5D, or curved screen, what you're seeing is ...

    You may remember Ivo Marić, the CAD artist behind what we though was the best set of Galaxy Note 5 renders on July 18; sure they might be far from what the device might end up looking, but unofficial concept renders often are (and sometimes are spot on). Now we're looking at another concept render from the same artists as he envisions Apple's 2016 smartphone, the iPhone 7. A 2.5D glass protects a Quad HD display and an Apple A10 chip powers everything; a 16MP camera will be able to capture all your stills and an Apple Dock will offer both connectivity and wireless charging solutions.

    Samsung was always preoccupied by mobile security, and smartphones like those in the Galaxy Note and S-lineups have all offered mobile security tools, such as Knox. We are all preparing to welcome the Galaxy Note 5 to this world, allegedly on August 12 or 13, depending on which rumors your tend to believe, and, according to this report from South Korea, the Galaxy Note 5 will further enhance mobile security. Oberthur Technologies (a French mobile security solutions firm) chief executive Didier Lamouche told the Korea Herald that "in the Note 5, our security elements will be directly ...

    Update: People are saying that this is a fake render. Yes, that's a strong possibility, as with any leak which we can't verify, hence we always advise you to keep skeptical. As we're getting closer and closer to IFA 2015, manufacturers are slowly starting to tease their special events (except for Samsung, as the company is rumored to have a much earlier than IFA event for the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus). Huawei is one of the first to start teasing its IFA launch, and an Ascend Mate 8 might be on the table for the event, as last year it was the year for the Ascend Mate 7. According to ...

    The 128GB Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge variants of the 2015 flagships were the models with the highest capacity of internal storage available from the line-up. Samsung has decided to not include a microSD card expansion slot on the two smartphones, but, instead, has offered the devices in three storage options. The 128GB Galaxy S6 (and Edge), the 64GB version, and the base 32GB variant. However, in India, Samsung seems to have pulled the 128GB Galaxy S6 (and Edge), as the two storage options are no longer available on the official website, as seen in the images above and below.

    If you've been following the industry over the past couple of years, you are definitely familiar with smartphones that pack flexible screens. From the LG G Flex to the G Flex 2 and G4, to the Samsung Galaxy Round, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge (and soon Plus), to name a few, there's a real trend in the industry to go with a flexible screen. Whether it is for looks, ergonomics, or just flexing R&D muscles, these flexible screen smartphones look like are here to stay. To cope with demand, both present and forecasted, LG Display is investing in the flexible screen industry, by building ...

    Just a short while ago we were treated to this 2015 Moto X leak -- revealing the front-facing flash for selfies, and containing a strange report on a purported fingerprint scanner, and its weird placing -- and now we're looking at its cheaper sibling, the 2015 Moto G (after a previous carrier leak detailing specs and waterproofing). We first heard about the 2015 Moto Maker with the occasion of a July 14 Evan Blass leak, and today's report seems to confirm what we've previously heard, and shed some light on additional details. There's no way in verifying whether we're looking at an ...
