The device that's made the most buzz lately is the company's successor to the Moto G. We've spent the last couple of months dubbing it the Moto G2, but it seems that will have to change as of today. We've got some leaked photos of the new Moto G in its retail packaging over at a retail warehouse in India, and if we're calling it just the "new Moto G," that's because the box states that this is just the Moto G. This device ...

    We've been following Meizu's MX4 for the last couple of weeks, and there's actually a reason for that. If you thought Apple and HTC are the only companies that know how to pull of a hot aluminum phone, think again. The Meizu MX4 was rumored to bring one of the most amazing screen-to-body ratios of the market, and the company has delivered. Today the Meizu MX4 goes on pre-order in China, and the spec sheet is rather impressive for a market that prefers mid tiered phones. The MX4 sports a 5.36-inch display rocking 1920 x 1152 resolution, bringing you a good 418 PPI on a display that gives ...

Some of the latest rumors now claim that we won't see an iWatch until 2015, and today's source explains why. Digitimes is reporting that the reason why the iWatch might not see the light of day until 2015 is because the device has barely entered its "engineer verification test" ...

    One of the biggest mysteries that surrounds Apple's September 9th event, is what to expect for the iPhone 6 phablet that's been rumored. Most of the leaks we've seen in both parts and mockups have been focused on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and that makes sense since it begun mass production a couple of weeks ago. It's hard to predict if Apple does have anything ready for September 9 when it comes to the 5.5-inch model, but new images and videos have might shed some light. Today we see a leaked video of what is supposed to be the back shell of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. It's hard to predict if this ...
