    Mid-last-week we've seen the initial renders of the Tab 4 7.0 get leaked courtesy of @evleaks and today we're being treated to official press images of another upcoming South Korean slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. There's no doubt that both of these tablets will be part of the same family of products, and they're expected to be less powerful/more affordable devices compared to the CES TabPRO and NotePRO line-up. As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 will have a ten-inch screen, and so far it is expected to have a resolution of 1280 x 800. While nothing is official for ...

    We've heard of LG's plans to deliver Knock Code to the G Flex -- and the G2 -- and 4K video capabilities have been rumored to land with a software refresh not so long ago. Well, as it turns out, LG's flexible curved smartphone is getting its Android KitKat update; however, for the time being, only devices in South Korea are on the distribution list. The changes and additions, aside from the above mentioned Knock Code, include improvements to the Bluetooth Car-Kit controls, as well as performance improvements which come with Google's ART. Other devices (outside of LG's home turf) should ...

    We've heard about Android 4.4.3 in the past days and weeks, and many have expected it since the Nexus 5 camera bugs, as a fix. Even more recently, evidence of its existence has been uncovered of a device (of course, a Nexus 5), running this specific version of Android (build KTU83). Now, according to a recent report, we're hearing that this will be, as expected, a minor point-update, focusing only on fixing bugs; so, don't expect any major changes or features added. AndroidPolice's source, who also supplied the screenshot above of a Nexus 5 running 4.4.3, claims that the OS refresh will ...

    After seeing HTC's latest and greatest being torn apart, it was just normal (and a matter of time) until we've seen the Samsung Galaxy S 5 get the same treatment. Apparently, these two devices not only compete on the market, but also in the degree of difficulty for repairs. While the Galaxy S 5 will not reach most markets until mid-April, Russian website Ferra has managed to get its hands on one, and, of course, tore it apart. However, in the case of the GS5, it is easier to understand why it is harder to teardown (and hence, to repair), since we're talking about a phone which is water ...

    On April 2, Nokia will unveil more Windows Phones, as the company itself has teased the event using the #moreLumia hashtag. Since it coincides with Microsoft's Build conference, we're likely to see an upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device (or maybe more), but there's no word on whether we should expect a high end or a lower end phone (though multiple devices is still a possibility). According to the latest from @evleaks, T-Mobile Windows Phone fans should soon expect a Nokia device to land on Magenta's line-up. The codename mentioned is "Monarch". This T-Mobile Nokia Monarch could very well be ...

    We've met the LG G2 mini in person with the occasion of this year's MWC, and we got to experience, first hand, a phone that is neither mini, nor G2. It features either a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm, or 1.7GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4i processor (for the LATAM LTE version), a 4.7-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960 x 540, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, either an 8.0 or a 13.0MP (for the LATAM LTE version) shooter, 1.3MP front facer, and a 2,440mAh battery. If you like the phone, expect it to be available next month. The LG G2 mini is coming in April to CIS countries, after which it ...

    The HTC M8 leaks again, just as we were wondering what else is there to say at the event that would surprise us. This time around, following up on yesterday's hands-on video leaked (in German), we're seeing the M8 being compared to its predecessor, the 2013 flagship, the M7. Embedded below, for your viewing pleasure, is a video coming from TechSmartt on YouTube. The comparison looks at similarities and differences in design, hardware, software, and performance. The official unveiling event happens later in the day, but this video should get you through the waiting. Enjoy all nine minutes ...

    LG has taken it's Knock-On from the G2 to the next level, as we've seen the new Knock Code in action with the occasion of our G Pro 2 hands-on video in Barcelona (alongside the G2 mini, F Series and L Series devices). This new way of unlocking the device is able to recognize one of close to 80,000 combinations of tapping the screen to life. Next month (April), LG will start bringing Knock Code to other devices in its portfolio, via a software update. The G2 and G Flex are specifically being mentioned in the press release, however, with the wording "in specific countries". Two to eight ...

    On September 3, 2013, Microsoft and Nokia announced a deal through which the Finnish manufacturer's Devices and Services division has been acquired by the Redmond-based software giant. After internal consents from the board, there were still a couple of hurdles in the deal's way, mostly represented by regulatory approvals. Nokia announced that next month, April, is when it expects "the sale of substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft". This will arrive just a tad late compared to the initial Microsoft-Nokia deal forecast of the acquisition closing within the ...

    March 25 is the day HTC is expected to release the 2014 follow-up for the HTC One, and even without today's leak, we were wondering what else is there that HTC can say in order to surprise us. The phone, and its features, related aspects, have been leaked extensively over the past couple of weeks, but today we're seeing a full 14-minute video hands-on of the yet unannounced device. It is German, so if you don't happen to speak the language, you'll have to settle for the video footage itself. Apparently the phone is being called "HTC One" and not "The New HTC One", at least that's what's ...

    Saying that Verizon was late to the HTC One party back in 2013 is a slight understatement, as the flagship made its way to Big Red months after landing on its competitors' line-up. However, this year, we've seen a lot of 2014 HTC One leaks, and, from those, there were many involving Verizon, whether that's renders with the phone wearing the carrier logo, a retail box, or the most recent leak. There might be an explanation to that, as, according to a recent report citing "trusted" sources, Verizon will have a "couple of weeks" of exclusivity for the 2014 flagship. The phone will reportedly ...

    There have been a lot of rumors concerning a future possible 8-inch Nexus tablet in the past, and, according to recent reports, it might be closer to the 9-inch form factor, at 8.9-inches in diagonal. Said rumors talk about an end-of-April timeframe, but a recent report mentions volume production for the 9-incher for July/August, for the Nexus 7 (2013) follow-up. "The expectation is [that] this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications", claims the report, which also mentions "high-performance" specifications. Google's Nexus line-up isn't ...

    If you haven't checked out our Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 review by now, go check it out. Chances are that many of its internals will be inherited by a an upcoming model that has just recently popped up on a benchmark website. We're talking about the Samsung SM-T700, and, it will hopefully feature an AMOLED display (wishful thinking). As for the specs listed, we're looking at an 8.4-inch form-factor with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display. Samsung's own Exynos 5 Octa processor is also being listed, clocking at 1.9GHz, in addition to 1.7GB (2?) of RAM, 11GB (16?) of storage, and a 7 ...

    The next iteration of Windows Phone, codenamed Blue, and with version number 8.1, is expected to be unveiled at the Build event happening soon. While many of its upcoming features have been leaked online, rumored, or unofficially unveiled, there might still be some surprises (or at least we're hoping) waiting for us. Heading over to the source link below, you will land on the official Windows Phone page (its Features section, to be more specific). At the top left, you can choose to see Windows Phone 8, or Windows Phone 8.1 features. Of course, the Windows Phone 8.1 link will take you to an ...
