    There have been rumors floating about in China of an "edgy" Note 6 this season instead of an "edge+" model as Samsung put out last year. Well, it's been a bit since we've talked about this rumor and, lo and behold, rumors have gone ahead and changed the Note 6's name. Cue obligatory "Why six afraid of seven?" jokes here. Well, Indian import/export database Zauba might have evidence of what could end up being called the Galaxy Note 7 edge. Diving into Samsung's nomenclature here, we've seen the regular Galaxy S model numbers coded in the alphanumeric format of "SM-G9XX". The Notes have ...

    Weibo, like any other social media site, has its swarms of hornets occasionally. When it comes to mobile hardware leaks, disbelief can especially be prone to manifesting in awful ways. Take all of the rumors we've been compiling about a certain version of the Meizu PRO 6. It now seems that these photo leaks, previously connected to that device, have been implicated in a different Meizu device entirely — one possibly with an Exynos processor. The leaker of the Exynos rumor has since decried critics denying rumors of a double-edged PRO 6-like with the Exynos 8890 inside and a fairly ...

    Huawei was the hustler of the smartphone industry in 2015. It had four poles holding up a tent that spread across the world, not just its home country. And if the company's pomp and circumstance didn't put the Mate S up in the product ranks of the P8, the Nexus 6P and the Mate 8, surely a sequel will. We're hearing from a supply chain source via Weibo analyst Sun Changxu that Huawei will take on a phone with a double-curved screen in the second half of the year — but it will not be like Samsung's implementation in its edge variants of the latest Galaxy S phones. Given Huawei's monster ...

    We’re hitting a point in mobile technology where flagship smartphones seemingly need to come in pairs; where manufacturers have foregone the idea of a "one size fits all” device, instead focusing on making two different sizes for two different kinds of people. The regular user, the one that’s perfectly content sacrificing some minor specifications in exchange for a phone that fits perfectly in their hand … and the power user that demands every last spec, every inch of screen that can be crammed into their smartphone of choice. Earlier this year, the Galaxy S6 edge made waves in ...

    OEMs are trying to find their place in this landscape. Some are more successful at this than others. But the one thing that many of these OEMs have in common is the fact that they’re all looking for that one magic bullet. That one thing that really sets them apart from others. Sometimes it’s building materials. Sometimes it’s software. Today, we’re talking about one such magic bullet – the curved screen phenomenon that we’ve seen of late. Curved screens have been somewhat elusive until recently for two real reasons. First, finding a durable material that could work being bent ...

    LG makes some fantastic hardware. The Nexus 4 was a tremendous device (despite having a glass back). The G Watch was my first watch powered by Android Wear, and the first wearable worthy of handing my Pebble (Kickstarter Edition) down to my daughter. I even own a pair of Bluetooth headphones with LG's brand slathered all over them, and the Nexus 4 wireless charging "orb" is stilling on my desk as I write this article. Yes, LG truly does make some amazing products. Some of my favorites include flexible handsets and self-healing skins. Who else can even compete with those? Now that we're ...

    Curved screens are nothing new to Google's Nexus family of smartphones -- or are they? The second iteration of Google's flagship phone was made by Samsung. It was called the Nexus S. It's successor was the Galaxy Nexus. Both had curved screens. But that's not entirely true, is it? Both the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus had curved glass, but that glass covered flat screens, thereby providing only the illusion of a curved screen. Perhaps that's just semantics, and it's all in the past anyway. When you jump forward to today we have a very different situation: both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5 ...
