    Acer smartphones are not too common in North America, as the company has told us, with several occasions -- at trade shows -- that it focuses mainly on Europe and Asia. However, that's about to change: according to a recent @evleaks report, AT&T is preparing to add an Acer smartphone to its line-up. We don't have a model name or number, nor any details regarding availability and pricing. What we do know, however, that the five-inch Acer phone will have a Full HD resolution, and will utilize an eight-megapixel sensor for its main shooter on the back. According to the report, the rest of ...

    WhatsApp has been missing from the Windows Phone Store for almost two weeks, as the application got unpublished due to some users having difficulties in fully utilizing the offering. Yesterday, Joe Belfiore reassured everyone that the app would be back soon, as they were working on a fix, and that's exactly what happened. Not only WhatsApp returns to the Windows Phone Store, but it does so with a new version, that brings some features (present on other platform clients though) to the table. In version 2.11.490 you'll find chat backgrounds, broadcast lists, privacy settings, media ...

    The first time we heard about the HTC One Remix, about two weeks ago, we knew it will eventually land on Verizon's line-up, but we didn't know exactly what the phone was. Now, according to @evleaks, we're getting answers, as the HTC One Remix will allegedly be Verizon's HTC One Mini 2. While the leaked press render below seems to conceal something (probably the time and date on Sense, which usually hints at the announcement date -- or some other sensitive data), we can definitely recognize the phone, this time, with the Verizon logo apparently replacing HTC's own branding at the bottom of ...

    With smart watches being the next cool thing, it is just normal for OEMs to be a part of the game. It's no longer just Pebble, but other notable manufacturers, like Samsung, for instance, offer their takes on wearables. Apple is expected to bring a smartwatch, and we've also been hearing rumors of an HTC device that will be more than "just a gimmick"; sadly, it has missed the MWC show floor. According to recent reports, the Taiwanese manufacturer does indeed have a smartwatch, tentatively called the HTC One Wear. Late August/early September is what the report claims as a possible ...

    There was little doubt that the Galaxy S5 Active exists, thanks to all the leaks we've seen recently. But, with water resistance already present on the Galaxy S 5, many were wondering about the purpose of an Active phone. As a reminder, last year's Galaxy S4 Active brought IP57 over the standard build of the S4, but in 2014, Samsung wants you to be (more) active. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is now also shock resistant, and has a dustproof casing -- IP67 & MIL-spec 810G -- (in addition to being water resistant like its classic sibling). Underneath the ruggedized body you can find ...

    The HTC One M8 Ace has been pretty present in the headlines lately, thanks to all the leaks, and we know we should expect the phone to arrive soon. However, Those who thought that last year's One, One Mini, and One Max line-up will happen again in 2014, in the same formation, might be wrong. According to the latest reports, alongside the One (M8) -- already out --, the One Mini 2 -- already out --, and the One M8 Ace -- coming soon, if the rumors are true -- we might see not one, but two more One-named phones. An HTC One M8 Plus, as well as an Advance version, have been tipped by a recent ...

    New iPads and iPhones should be landing this year; some reports claim we'll see them earlier, some claim fall 2014 is the timeframe. Whichever the case, we're expecting to see the "best product pipeline" that Apple has had in a while, if the company's Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services is to be believed. Apple has been known to use superlatives not only in keynotes, but also un order to build the anticipation and buzz. Eddy Cue, while at the Code Conference, said that Apple has "got the best product pipeline that I’ve seen in my 25 years at Apple". We're pretty sure ...

    Our opinions related to the Padfone concept have been divided here on Pocketnow. However, if you often find yourself switching from your phone to your tablet, and vice versa, AT&T's got you covered with the ASUS Padfone X. Sales start next Friday, June 6, both online, and in retail stores, so, if this is something you might be interested in, check out our ASUS Padfone X unboxing below. There's both a tablet -- which is not a real tablet, per se -- and a phone in the box, alongside the usual accessories, like bundled headphones (yay!), charger, and USB cable. For those interested in ...

    The copper gold Samsung Galaxy S 5 for Verizon has been recently leaked, and, if you think the above phone(s) are just a rehash, the signal and carrier indicators should clear it all up (alongside the headline and the title of today's leak). We're looking at the gold Galaxy S5 for both AT&T and Sprint, as leaked by @evleaks. It's not necessarily about the differences (as there are really none -- inside or outside), but a confirmation of the copper gold Galaxy S5 coming to two more US carriers. When? There are no availability nor pricing details, so we'll have to wait for another leak ...

    The 2014 Sony flagship is the phone that, according to our findings, is worth every penny. However, despite goodies like a water and dust resistant build, one of the negative items on some future possible owners' lists was the lack of wireless charging support. Sony has thought of that, apparently, and equipped the phone with a viable accessory solution. The Xperia Z2 wireless charging cover is QI compatible. It also helps prop the device, acting as a kickstand, while offering an extra layer of protection. The Sony Xperia Z2 wireless charging plate is what fuels the charging cover, with a ...

    We've seen previous images of the "plastic" HTC 2014 flagship, and the phone depicted in those doesn't seem to resemble the device in today's leaked set of stills. You'll have to stay skeptical about these images, as neither they, nor the source, can be verified. That being said, the polycarbonate HTC M8 Ace seems to follow previous rumors and leaks, so we might be looking at something credible. Four color options are suggested (white, black, blue, and red); the phone is almost identical to the One (M8) flagship, sans the Duo Camera feature on the back. And, while talking about the camera, ...

    We're just a couple of hours away from the official announcement of the LG G3, the company's 2014 flagship, but that doesn't stop the leaks. We've seen several aspects of the phone unofficially unveiled recently, and now, what you can see in the image above, is claimed to be (and we believe that it indeed is) the LG G3 retail box. (note the faux metallic look, emulating the back of the phone, as seen in previous leaks). Laser auto-focus is confirmed, as part of the new OIS camera on the LG G3, as per the leaked slides below testify. The mystery of the backplate is also uncovered, as the ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 Value Edition has received its Bluetooth certification in February, before MWC, as the GT-i9515, but it managed to somehow miss the show floor. Now, 14 months after the introduction of the S4 -- and almost three months after announcing the S5 -- the Value Edition of the phone is available in some regions of Europe (so far, according to reports, The Netherlands, and Italy). Depending on the retailer, it goes for around €400-€500 ($545-$680) unlocked, and brings absolutely nothing new to the table, aside from a grey color (there's also a white one), and Android ...

    There are no details concerning the Verizon Xperia Z2 Tablet, so we can't tell you exactly when it will land, and how much it will go for. What we do know, thanks to @evleaks, is that the slate is going to arrive, at one point, on Big Red's line-up. The tablet was announced at this year's MWC in Barcelona, alongside the Sony Xperia Z2, and the M2. US carriers didn't pick up the Xperia Z2 yet -- and if last year's Z1 is any indication, it might last a little longer until someone does -- but some retailers enable fans of the phone in North America to grab it. The story should be different ...

    Lenovo, the company that purchased Motorola, has been officially named a Windows Phone OEM by Microsoft back in February. As a consequence, we should expect a Windows Phone-powered smartphone with Lenovo branding by the end of the year, according to Liu Jun, chief of Lenovo's mobile division. There were previous rumors talking about a Lenovo Windows Phone towards the end of the summer, but, according to the executive's statement, this has now been postponed/reworded to indicate a more vague timeframe. In addition to the Microsoft-powered phone, there were also mentions of a possible ...
