    Four more days is what we all have to wait until the Samsung Galaxy Note III becomes official. It has been one of the most leaked Samsung phones out there and today we're getting an image that is claimed to be the upcoming phablet's wallpaper. Even if it will not be the default one, or even included, it's a nice colorful image that will look good on your screen. Grab the original file from here. On a related note, the phablet follow-up is allegedly the phone in the image below. Of course, there's an aspect ratio, or perspective action going on, as the device appears to be wider than it ...

    Sony's Lens Camera, that was recently leaked, should bring additional imaging capabilities to smartphones. Though the details are scarce at the moment, everything should be clear on September 4, when Sony will have its pre-IFA event and announce the accessory alongside the Honami (and possibly the Honami Mini). Until then, there are a couple of more rumors and leaks to hang on to. The image above represents the accessory in a new color, this time, with gold and white, and the name of the devices will apparently be a combination between "smartphone" and "cybershot", for a final "Smart Shot" ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note III will be announced on September 4 in Berlin; that's a certainty! Also certain are some of its upcoming specifications, judging by previous models, their relationships with the S-line, and Samsung's general policy on devices. We've already seen the purported white face of the phablet but what nobody seems to know at the moment is when exactly will the Note III become available? According to the image above, a purported still snapped off of a Three UK internal document that seems to hint that Samsung's 2013 phablet will land, at least on the British carrier, on ...

    It may not be quite the free-for-all that we've been seeing with the iPhone 5S and 5C, but there have been a good number of rumors associated with Samsung's Galaxy Note III, and just the other day we got a nice look at a leaked front panel for the upcoming phablet. That was a very interesting find, letting us do some comparisons to the Note II, but it sure won't be the only color option the Note III gets at launch. Besides the black front panel we saw, we've heard of plans for a white GN3, and today we get to take a look at a matching white front panel. Don't let those black bits confuse ...

    The upcoming Sony Honami, which the company will almost certainly unveil at its September 4 pre-IFA Berlin special event, has been subject to numerous leaks and rumors in the recent past. We've seen pictures from Mr. Blurrycam and his friends but today's Sony Honami leaked pictures seem to be a clear and sharp representation of what the phone might end up to be. Whether we're looking at a dummy unit, a prototype, or the real deal, is unknown. However, the back of the phone, where the camera is, has labels attached, which are missing from the official Sony teasers. Sony might have ...

    It's the show that kicks off the fall season in consumer electronics and mobile technology, and we're going to be there, as always, to cover it. But IFA 2013 is next week - and last we checked our Novice's Guide to Chronometry and Basic Time Theory, there's a whole lotta time between this week and next. So let's fill it with speculation. Join Jaime Rivera, Taylor Martin, and Michael Fisher on a whimsical journey into the prospective future, as they bat around rumors and leaks concerning such luminaries as Samsung's Galaxy Note III, LG's new G Pad, a futuristic Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and ...

    Sony is expected to unveil the next flagship, codenamed Honami, at its pre-IFA event on September 4. Some rumors have gone as far as to predict there will also be a Honami Mini, but, for what it's worth, we're talking about the bigger brother now. While we've seen plenty of alleged pictures of the phone to have a good general idea of what to expect, a couple have popped up on TENAA, China's Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center. As you can see in the images above and below, there's nothing really new and groundbreaking here, but Sony keeps teasing: "Think you know what a ...

    We had a first glimpse at the alleged front panel of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III and the internet is taking this a step further, with measurements, as well as comparisons to the current model. Let's start off with the measurements: those who claim access to the physical component state that, after measurements, the screen will be a 5.68-inch display, with 2.2mm bezels (the actual display is 1.8mm thick). How does that compare to the display of the Galaxy Note II? Check out the image below! As you can see, it is a tad taller and has more squared off corners. The bezel is definitely ...

    LG's G Pad 8.3 tablet has been just on the cusp of going official for days now. We've been expecting to see it at the IFA next week, but the way LG's taken to teasing the product's launch on YouTube, it may have well have already launched. Apparently LG's quite aware of such reactions to that video, because it's immediately following it up with a short announcement, going public with its plans for the tablet. To be fair, though, we're not sure that even this should count as a straight-up "launch." We saw the same sort of pre-launch waffling with the G2, and that comes through again in this ...

    What we have above, and below, is allegedly the front panel of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III. If this turns out to be the real deal, we're looking at more squared off corners, but, aside from that, we're still seeing the good old Samsung design, with the home button on the center of the bottom part. We're guessing capacitive buttons are a go, to its left and right, and the top features the webcam as well as places for the sensors. The report claims dimensions similar to the Note II, but with a larger screen (hence, smaller bezels). On a different, but still related note, Lee ...

    There has been no shortage of Samsung Galaxy Note III rumors, the phablet expected to be launched at the September 4, pre-IFA, special event in Berlin. Most recently we've heard that this year's giant phone will not have an optical stabilized camera, but today's rumors are looking at the same imaging component. Citing unnamed sources, the Korea Economic Daily claims that the Galaxy Note III will have a 4K camera, delivering Ultra High Definition video. The spec might look good on paper, but you will definitely not take advantage of such video on a Full HD resolution screen. Maybe Samsung ...

    The date is set, the specs are all but confirmed, and we even heard chatter about color variants. The Samsung Galaxy Note III should see the light of day at the September 4, pre-IFA 2013 special event, in Berlin. According to recent reports from South Korea, the first four million units to be shipped will be equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor, instead Samsung's own, octa-core (dual-quad-core) Exynos 5 CPU. Furthermore, from a total volume of 100%, the report claims that up to 70% of the units could be equipped with the Snapdragon 800 SoC, and only the rest will have the ...

    Sony's IFA 2013 press event is less than two weeks away; on September 4, we're going to get the official story on the company's latest devices, and unless the rumor mill has seriously misled us, that's likely to include both the unusual "lens camera" accessories that recently leaked, as well as the long-anticipated Honami. Whether the latter arrives as the Xperia i1 or the Z1 – or something else entirely – it aims to really push boundaries so far as what kind of camera performance we can expect from Xperia handsets. As we wait for the phone to go official, Sony's posted a little teaser ...

    The arrival of August has really seen rumors heat up concerning Samsung's anticipated smartwatch, tipped to arrive as the Galaxy Gear. Amidst a growing body of evidence for the watch's existence, rumors have been quite adamantly claiming that the smartwatch will join the Galaxy Note III on stage at Samsung's September 4 IFA event. As we wait to learn if there's any truth to those claims, some new rumors start getting into the specifics of the watch's hardware, and paint a pretty impressive-looking picture. Probably the biggest news here is the SoC, with the Galaxy Gear supposedly running ...

    If you thought the Palm commercials of 2009 were as weird as mobile tech advertising would ever get, HTC and Robert Downey Jr. have something to show you. That's the conversation that kicks off this week's edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, and it's followed by some heartening news about this year's IFA in Berlin. If the rumors hold true, we should be in for some powerfully geeky, if unconventional, tech in Germany this year - and even if they don't, we've got plenty to talk about in the way of chipsets, Nexii, smartwatches, and phablets. If none of those terms make sense to you, ...
