    Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, confirmed on Chinese microblogging site QQ that the Xiaomi Max will officially debut at the company's summer promotional event on May 10. This comes after some 80,000 viewers gathered to watch an impromptu event featuring Lei on a Chinese livestreaming app to learn more about the device. Lei was more excited about the livestreaming app than the phone in his post, but if you're here for a muscly phablet, don't worry, you're in for a re-run in about two weeks.

    Honor, firmly under Huawei's wing, has seen new land over the past several months as the 5X finally came to American shores. However, if you're on that chunk of land looking forward to some more Honor action anytime soon, forget it. At least, for now. It seems that another Honor phone will be coming China's way on April 13, at least according to this leaked poster. Other sources are floating April 28 as another event date and there's a belief that it won't just be China getting some new hardware. Speculation's been wafting that Honor has two phones on the way soon — the Honor 8 and the ...

    Apple is looking for some wind in its sales. Cupertino and Wall Street have been expecting a plateau of iPhone revenue this year. We've been expecting this iPhone 6c. no, 7c, sorry, 5se, I mean, just SE now, for awhile. It's supposed to be the first four-inch phone since 2013. Leaks and quips yelled of prominent equipment — specifically, the internals and hardware features of the iPhone 6s. And it was supposed to look pretty darn fancy — think iPhone 5s-caliber design. And it was supposed to be cheap. Well, "Apple cheap" isn't that cheap, but analysts would end up guessing $449 to ...

    Before you go shouting "duh," let's get our bearings straight here. We've been working on getting a date for this upcoming HTC 10 phone only to have it sink into a mushy timeline associated with the company's new smartwatch that we mustn't forget about. Of course, we at Pocketnow (as evidenced in this week's Weekly podcast) are still aching for specifics. Backchannel specialist Evan Blass believes he has an answer of sorts: In case it wasn't obvious, I'd say that Tuesday, April 19th -- the date on the screen -- is nearly a lock for HTC 10 launch. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 5, 2016 ...

    But it's just a few extra days between friends (and enemies). We've kept tabs on Apple as it was rumored that a four-inch iPhone, a smaller iPad Pro and the sequel to last year's Apple Watch would come with a mid-March event. Some tipsters put the timeframe squarely on the day that's literally in the middle of March. Not so much anymore, as Re/code reports from its sources that the event will happen the week of March 21. BuzzFeed, from its sources, was able to pin it down to the day of the 21st. The event will likely be a small affair compared to ones hosted at downtown San Francisco ...

    Update: Samsung has mailed invites for the press to attend its Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, confirming the February 21 date. It's the same date and general location as LG's planned "Play" event. When you have nothing to do on a Saturday night and you find yourself fielding a big, juicy tip on what's going on with one of the most hyped Android devices of the season, you know something's up. Evan Blass volleys two big screenshots of what may be a promo video for #TheNextGalaxy event that is scheduled for February 21, three weeks from today and 19 days before shipment supposedly begins ...

    It'll take a bit of time before we see that Nubia Z11 that everyone seems to be looking forward to this year. But until we get a little more something something than just the front panel, we're not really up for it just yet. But as ZTE subsidiary Nubia wants to keep the counter up on devices, it'll be doing just that next week. Specifically, we're looking forward to what might be known in English as the My Prague S, a step up from last August's My Prague phone. The capital of the Czech Republic, being one of the art capitals of the world, has been exploited for branding the My Prague as a ...

    LeTV has been driving high-gear growth of its mobile phones over the past year across Asia and has just made landfall in the US. Qualcomm essentially boasted on behalf of the Chinese manufacturer that the Le Max Pro would be the first to run the Snapdragon 820 chipset. We didn't get to test final products at CES, but LeTV is ready for some more promotion runs in India. The LeTV event in Delhi that happened on January 5, as far as we can gather, only featured the company's Bluetooth and VR headsets along with its Super Cycle. The company did subsequently announce a Le Future event headed ...

    We expected Samsung to beat the crowd in introducing its 2016 "spring" flagship. All we were doing was debating how early. We heard musings of the chaebol trying to find space in Las Vegas in time for CES next month. But we've kept listening to Korean sources that have said that Samsung will reserve itself for February. Well, one of the shoes dropped today as Samsung gave out invitations to its Tuesday press conference at CES. We don't know what's on the playbill for the event, but given the Consumer Electronics Show's wide showcase of products and that Samsung makes TVs and refrigerators, ...

    How often do you stop to look at your phone's design? Sometimes it seems like the manufacturers of these smartphones don't seem to care. We think Samsung didn't really care for a couple of years between the Galaxy SIII and the Galaxy S4. While the S5 might've been somewhat of an aesthetic nightmare, at least it was something different. This year's flagship devices from the Korean OEM have been a splendid, premium and glassy surprise. We might be getting splendid, premium and glassy all over again in 2016 and it won't be a surprise according to an source. A source said that the focus will ...

    We're getting some of the blurry blotches painted in as to when OnePlus will be debuting its new miniature smartphone — small compared with its previous two offerings — and what that device will be called. You'll note that we've been referring to the mystery phone as both the "OnePlus X" and the "OnePlus Mini" throughout our rumors coverage. Now, we have some direction from CEO Liu Zuohu as to which way the moniker will go. And apparently, when he took a run, all the roads led back to the OnePlus X. Hey, whatever cures the restlessness you mention on your post, Mr. Liu. Whether he's ...

    OnePlus told us something was going to happen by the end of the year that wasn't the OnePlus 2. The Oppo spin-off has had an interesting series of moments from Carl Pei to Carl Pei. Well, we might be able to divine what's going on with the company and its ambitions during an event next week. But this time, there's no VR and no Pei. Pete Lau, CEO and founder of OnePlus, will join Vikas Agarwal, General Manager of Indian operations, in Bengaluru ("Bangalore," for us Westerners) for an event sometime next week. The invitation has the "The Next Big Step" written on it and given Carl Pei's ...

    What's in vogue? Bowl-cut hair and asymmetrical design. We're expecting one of those to be featured on the LG V10, replete with a duo of front cameras and a secondary screen. It's expected to debut during an early October event in New York. Well, now we can put convert expectations into realization with this 15-second trailer video from LG for the 1st of the month event. And somehow, a wicked wig gets involved into this. Importantly, though, the screen flare near the end of the video shows off the cut-away section for the "ticker" as well as the cameras. Both are signs of the LG V10. Our ...

    Earlier today Apple announced a couple new iPhones, some new configurations for the Apple Watch and an updated OS, a really big iPad with 5 kajillion pixels, a dedicated iPad keyboard, and even a stylus pencil. Yeah, all that's neat, but the real news out of Apple's event has to do with Microsoft. Today Microsoft showed off "Office iPad" - but we'll get to that in a moment. This isn't the first Apple event that Microsoft has been featured in... Remember Macword Boston back in 1997? Apple lives in an ecosystem and it needs help from other partners. It needs to help other partners. And ...

    Watch our Top 5 predictions for what to expect on Apple's October 22nd event, where the most probable theme is iPad. That said, we've this could be Apple's last event for the year, and judging from the fact that devices like the Apple TV haven't seen an overhaul, we could be in for more than just tablets. The biggest question we have is what'll we get and what'll we miss from this event. We're expecting new iPads, but we've also heard rumors of an iWatch, a full-fledged Apple TV, meaning an actual television and not just a box, and obviously new computers. As competition has aggressively ...

    In the world of mobile technology, you'll find controlled leaks, uncontrolled leaks, and around five steps ahead of each, you'll find the LG G2. This got so out of hand in recent times that LG was simply forced to admit that there was an LG G2 in the works, and that they'd put all the rumors to rest in an event, which happens tomorrow. Now, this phone is bigger than what we'll see at the event. Last year, the Optimus G1 was the basis for the Google Nexus 4 that we all love, and if the reports are true, the future Nexus smartphone will be based on this G2 as well. Join us for the LG G2 ...

    You knew this was going to happen. The launch of the Nokia 808 PureView back in 2012 was just the tip of the iceberg in the company's future plans for smartphone camera dominance. This day and age, it's all about our photos, sharing, and making social statements with them, and Nokia is one of the few companies that gets that right. Regardless of whether it's a photo of the cat or our favorite building, the 808 PureView wasn't really about the 41 Megapixels, but instead, of your ability to have lossless-digital zoom capabilities on the photographs. We've spent a year and a half imagining ...

    We've been on-site for a full day in Barcelona, making preparations to cover one of the year's biggest mobile technology shows. Last night, we let you in on the fun and frustration of our pre-show planning on a special episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. Later today, we're hosting a special MWC-focused episode of the Pocketnow Live broadcast. But right now, we'd like briefly to share our predictions, hopes, and dreams for MWC 2013. You know we're serious about this, because we stood out in the rain next to a major Barcelona landmark, and Tony wore his leather jacket. So quit yer ...

    There's no denying that one of the most anticipated events for this year is the one that's happening on Monday October 29th. The internet has been flooded with leaks of all the Nexus devices that are coming, and I know a lot of us can't wait. Now this is a different year when compared to previous. A couple of years ago all we got in these events was a Nexus smartphone. The Nexus 7 has changed that at Google I/O and we're expecting a lot of enhancements to Google's existing tablet along with a bigger sister tablet to compete against the world. Obviously our predictions are just predictions ...
