    We know that the OnePlus 3 will get an out-of-this-world purchase experience and a decent 8-megapixel selfie camera. We think we know that it has a 20W charging solution that may get branded as "Dash Charge". And we just haven't been sure about some other rumors, predicated on the phone's model name — a combination of the word "RAIN" and the alphanumeric combo "A3000". Well, Evan Blass was able to source some information about the phone as well as a screenshot of what this thing runs. OnePlus 3 basics: 5.5-inch 1080p, Snapdragon 820, 64GB storage, 16MP rear camera, NFC. SS from an N ...

    If Kyocera just isn't doing anything for your rugged phone needs, perhaps you're just a few weeks away from getting your hands on a Samsung solution. For the fourth consecutive year, we're looking forward to an AT&T co-opted Galaxy S Active device, tacky as it may look. Previous rumors seemed to say that the Active model would more likely take on the dimensions of the Galaxy S7 edge rather the plain 'ol Galaxy S7. It's better that VentureBeat's Evan Blass can give us a better idea of what will go into the phone based off a spec sheet the publication has acquired. So, a Snapdragon ...

    When a company's brand, based on a alphanumeric character, becomes too old, it can replace it with another one. After all, there are 35 other options to choose from. So, as the Moto X moniker comes out of its third product cycle, we're learning from VentureBeat's Evan Blass that this year's flagship smartphones from Lenovo subsidiary Motorola may primarily be branded as the "Moto Z". In relation to an earlier Evan Blass leak detailing the models we're looking forward to, the mid-range "Vertex" will be called the Moto Z Play while the high-end "Vector Thin" will be dubbed the Moto Z Style ...

    It's about time that we put that other foot forward. We saw Evan Blass put out what the Moto G4 Plus may look like about a month ago. Now, just a few days before we're expecting a big reveal in India from Moto, Blass decided that it's "All in the Family" on Twitter. Say hello to your little bro. https://t.co/am51AwvMGf pic.twitter.com/KivM4AM9Sq — Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 14, 2016 Apparently the "little bro" won't have the fingerprint sensor on the bottom that the Moto G4 Plus supposedly has. It goes along with an earlier blurrycam leak of the device. We also note that the sensor — ...

    Leaks don't have to be all about iPhones, Galaxys, Huawei, Xiaomi, Nexus, any real flagships, really, etc. etc. Take ZTE  — it's said to be planning a device called the Zmax Pro, according to a source to VentureBeat's Evan Blass. While previous Zmax devices have stuck to 720p displays on large canvasses with Snapdragon 400-series processors, the Pro is said to be packing in a Snapdragon 617 (eight cores running at 1.5GHz) right under a six-inch full HD screen. 2GB of RAM may same a little weak for 2016, but there is 32GB of flash storage for the suffering. The rear camera looks to have ...

    Samsung seems to be comfortable releasing another Galaxy Note device ahead of what would be Apple's typical launch period for its major devices. Evan Blass dropped some supposed wisdom on Twitter about when to expect the Note 6 in the US as well as a firmer word on the non-existence of an S7 edge+. Samsung Galaxy Note 6 US release scheduled for week of August 15th. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 11, 2016 @mspiccia I think that, since there won't be an edge+, there's almost no chance that it /won't/ be available globally. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 11, 2016 The Galaxy Note 5 was ...

    Looks like "modular" is in fact the buzzword of the year. At least, we can see a continuation of the trend if we trust VentureBeat's Evan Blass with some more information about this year's Moto X (or Moto Xs?). This follows on from the renders we saw of the devices along with a potential DROID Turbo 3 from HellomotoHK earlier. "A person who was briefed on the plans" said that both phones will have 5.5-inch AMOLED screens, be metallic and get sold under the Moto X brand. The pair will also have exchangeable backplates to add different functions to the device.   Thing is, the unit ...

    Talking about the DROIDs, it seems, has set us up for another news piece about them, their predecessors and their progenitors. Also, VentureBeat's Evan Blass talked about them, so of course we have to tail the chase now. And of course, it's by Twitter. Even more, it's by retweet of a similarly formed tweet ruminating about a DROID Turbo and Maxx 2. So now I'm hearing that there are going to be both a Maxx 3 as well as a Turbo 3. #dejavu https://t.co/FjABVjUdUo — Evan Blass (@evleaks) April 29, 2016 Nothing much beyond the word that both a DROID Maxx 3 and a DROID Turbo 3 will be coming. ...

    Since we're talking about leak manager Evan Blass and the HTC 10, we should probably just get down to it. He posted another render of this speculative and divisive device onto Twitter this morning along with a couple of specs. Also, take a look at the date on the screen ... Not sure if this has been reported yet, but HTC 10 features a super LCD 5 display - not AMOLED. Battery = 3000mAh pic.twitter.com/NbWonSaC3T — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 20, 2016 So, no AMOLED as seen on the One A9, but then again, we didn't see the use of Super LCD 4 on any HTC device. The 3Ah battery looks to be ...

    Alcatel has been reinventing itself in 2016 with a hefty and diversified portfolio of mobile products. Low-end phones and tablets came first while several phones are yet to come in Android and Windows 10 Mobile flavors. While we're focused on the Idol 4 and Idol 4S, we've been hearing word of an Idol 4 Mini and an Idol 4 Pro. Evan Blass of VentureBeat has been fielding some leaks on the latter two phones. He puts apples to apples, comparing the specs he got of the Idol 4 Pro with the like-designed Idol 4S.

    Mid-rangers have been the filler for this part of the month, but they're pretty important bread and butter in terms of making money for their manufacturers. Take LG smashing more of its K-series this month. But just a letter up the alphabet is the J-series from Samsung. And there's been a big show and tell performance. First off, if you like leaked renders, check out backchannel specialist Evan Blass's leak of the Galaxy J3 for AT&T. The phone's headed to a few US carriers, by the way.

    Since we're dealing with a bunch of fuzzy numbers with HTC, we might as well toss the Huawei P9 into the pot. Evan Blass, within the day he thumbed an April 19 launch of the brand spankin' new HTC 10 smartphone, also may have bagged a calendar spot for the dual-camera-wielding Huawei P9. Huawei P9 launches Wednesday, April 6th. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 6, 2016 Not our March 9 launch in Berlin that we were looking forward to, but hey, get this: within the past half-hour, he's had to walk back the bet as another leaker replied to Blass with an earlier date. UPDATE: I was told a number ...

    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 ...

    If you're not comfortable with the words "maybe," "subject to change," "speculation," "surprise" and "my computer's burning from all this tech, help me," you're probably not going to be excited next week. Backchannel techie Evan Blass said that we were to expect a secondary screen of sorts on the LG G5, but everyone can be mistaken: he later said he was probably looking at the Always ON display feature. Combine that with a freak leak out of India and it's been a hectic day in the LG department. Another surprise? The mid-range X cam handset that the chaebol has pre-introduced may have the ...

    Update: The story has been revised to reflect that Blass was not specific in calling out the "Second Screen"-branded feature as found on the V10. The demonstration tables will be packed with many different devices at LG's pad in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress. Thing is, we're all fixated on what the flagship, the G5, will give us. It's a device that's taken a departure from previous G-series iterations in terms of looks and crannies. It turns out that backchannel techie Evan Blass has picked up on another rumored feature that we've seen just last fall. Finally saw the G5; ...

    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 ...

    The smartwatch that doesn't exist, but will not die. After a lot of curiosity regarding the Taiwanese OEM's tablet habits, we've been chasing a potential HTC smartwatch for the past couple of years. For a company that typically manufactures quality hardware and software, mobile tech buffs were questioning why we haven't seen HTC in this vertical. Turns out those who were still waiting after we've given up all hope on even a fitness-focused smartwatch can maybe look forward to the month of April if leaker Evan Blass is to be believed. .@AnthonydFlemons Nope, but the watch should be out ...

    We have a full month before Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in Barcelona. That's when we're expecting several big'uns to arrive on the mobile flagship stage. It's been a topsy-turvy roundabout for Samsung watchers, though, as tidbits have been dropping about the Galaxy S7 for the longest time, perhaps even longer than what we've dealt with for the HTC One M8. Want it to be over? Evan Blass has a date to look out for: Starting to look like a Friday, March 11th Galaxy release in the U.S. — Evan Blass (@evleaks) January 22, 2016 We shouldn't be complicit to the fact that Evan Blass ...

    The HTC One A9 may go down as a wash for the Taiwanese OEM at a time when it could not afford to keep on the lather-and-rinse roll its been going through. Now, as we look down the HTC One pipeline, we've been seeing divided reports on what a new device, codenamed "E56," might be packing. This is an update to a story we posted earlier today and is also a great case study of how a leak gets incubated in such a short period. nowhereelse.fr Known muckraker entity nowhereelse out of France put up a post on Saturday suggesting that this HTC One X9 could be a step up from the One A9 in terms of ...

    "What would you say to the people who think that what you do is illegal?" " ... I would tell them that I don't want to answer this question." When you're interviewing the world's most notorious phone leaker, he's bound to duck a question or two. But cautious though he is, Evan Blass –formerly of Pocketnow and currently known across the web by his pen name @evleaks– is also a fountain of insight into the shadowy craft of being a professional spoiler. On today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly, Evan shares the ups and downs of the underworld he's come to dominate, and gives us a glimpse ...

    We were expecting Nokia to wow us at MWC 2014 with a decent amount of Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Oddly, Windows Phone 8.1 was announced, but Nokia focused on announcing entry-level Asha products, and even its new Nokia X Android smartphone line-up. If you're worried about the future of Windows Phone 8.1 in the hands of Nokia as Microsoft's self-owned OEM, you shouldn't as new reports point to devices coming soon. Famous tipster Evleaks has just tweeted that we should keep an eye on a device codenamed Nokia Martini. The post reads "Nokia watchers: Look out for Martini, another Windows Phone ...

    Update: Sorry folks! Due to circumstances beyond our control, we need to reschedule this special appearance. Pocketnow Weekly 083 will go under the mic on Thursday as scheduled, but Evan won't be able to join us. We'll still be announcing our Nexus 5 giveaway winner though, so be sure to tune in! • When we started the Pocketnow Weekly podcast back in July of 2012, it bore little resemblance to its current incarnation. There was no handy list of time codes; the music was built on an aggressive electric-guitar riff that now sounds impossibly cheesy; and subtopics like the "thought ...

    The days of Summer are waning, and here in the United States the trees are beginning to turn lovely shades of red and yellow. You know what that means? Time for a new Nexus phone! Luckily the rumor mill has been running in high-gear for quite some time now and many think they've got the specs of the "new Nexus" pretty nailed down. That is, if the Nexus 5 rumors hold true. I had a whole article in mind following the FCC releases and subsequent renders of what many are calling the "Nexus 5"... then @evleaks had to go and rain on everyone's parade and conclude that the device in the FCC ...
