    We're well aware that HTC and Nokia have been working on a number of new smartphones – Nokia's likely to make the EOS/Lumia 1020 official in just a week, and we've seen evidence to support rumors of future HTC devices like the One Mini. Now, we've got a new leak to examine that brings a bunch of these phones together in once place, as well as reveals a few previously unknown models. This supposedly comes from O2 in Germany, and you should immediately notice a few familiar names on it. In addition to the HTC One, we see confirmation for the One Mini, as well as the rumored One Max. The ...

    Earlier this month, we talked at some length about the idea that this whole Google Play edition stuff that HTC and Samsung are into might be an even better idea for a company without the same high profile, like a ZTE or a Huawei. Of course, when Huawei went ahead and launched its flagship Ascend P6 a couple weeks later, its chairman specifically discounted the possibility that we might see the arrival of a GPe Ascend P6. Now, though, we're not quite sure what to think, upon getting word from the president of Huawei's handset division that talks with Google about the possibility of a GPe P6 ...

    Teal and blue Huawei Ascend W2 color options have already been leaked but the specs were subject to speculation. No more, as the device has popped up at the ongoing Mobile Asia Expo 2013. We're finally seeing confirmation of the Huawei Ascend W2 specs, even though they're not high-end. One might even consider this phone as an entry-level Windows Phone with a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, specs worthy of Windows Phone Tango back in the day. The dimensions of the device are 134 x 66.7 x 9.9 mm. Now these specs are nothing like ...

    A little earlier this month, we heard Huawei announce its Ascend P6, a quad-core Android with 4.7-inch HD screen that measures only 6.18 millimeters thick. We remarked at the time that records like that have a way of being short-lived, so it's hardly surprising that this week we're already learning of another Android that just blazes right past the P6's record, coming in just 5.6 millimeters thick. Besides just being thin, the Umeox X5 has a 5.3-inch 720p screen, eight-megapixel main camera with three-megapixel front-facer, and is powered by a dual-core SoC. Based on that last bit, we're ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the announcement of an AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 for the next coming days. Then we go through the other official announcement of the Sony Xperia Z for T-Mobile in the US. The HTC One is next as analysts already see the phone as the third best selling smartphone in the United States. We later talk about a new company called Kazam, which was launched by some ex-employees from HTC. We end today's show talking about Huawei and their confirmation that they plan to acquire Nokia. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Samsung Galaxy ...

    Rumors about a company looking to buy-up Nokia are nothing new. While nothing ever seems to come of them, those suggestions keep popping up again and again over the years, and it sure seems like more often than not, we're talking about Microsoft considering making the purchase. The subject is back on our mind today, but in a slightly different context, with Huawei voicing its interest in maybe snatching-up Nokia. Huawei execs are gathered in London for the P6 announcement, and Richard Yu, chairman of the company's consumer business group, took the opportunity to put forth the idea that ...

    Huawei's Ascend P6, the company's new super-thin Android flagship, has been leaking like a rusty bucket for several weeks now, and we've seen hardware renders, UI screenshots, and checked out some relatively decent rumored specs. Still, we had a few lingering questions, so it's great to see Huawei finally make things official today, announcing the Ascend P6 at a London event. So, what have we got? Pretty much exactly what we were expecting: a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz quad-core K3V2 SoC. Those specs would be a lot more impressive on a phone coming out in 2012, but ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    Waterproofing is definitely one of the hotter smartphone features around in 2013, and we're seeing it come to an increasing number of models. Today we may get a new handset to add to the ranks of the GS4 Active and the Xperia Z, as the new teaser image Huawei posted to one of its Facebook accounts sure seems to imply that the company has a waterproof Windows Phone handset nearly ready to launch. While Huawei doesn't name the phone, we're almost certainly talking about the Ascend W2, which we've seen in a number of leaks over the past several weeks. Specs for the handset have already ...

    There have been a couple of occasions over the past few weeks where we've had the opportunity to check out leaked renders of the Huawei Ascend P6. Though the manufacturer may not have the clout of a Samsung or even an HTC, the P6 nonetheless looked like a pretty attractive handset, and wowed us with its exceptional thinness. While we had heard a few rumors about the handset's capabilities before, hard numbers had been lacking. Today we flesh out our understanding of the P6 a bit upon the apparent leak of a number of its hardware specs. Early chatter mentioned the possibility of a 1080p ...

    Google Edition, Nexus Edition – call them what you will, but we're just about to see the start of an interesting new experiment come out of Mountain View. With Samsung's Galaxy S 4 and HTC's One, Google is creating a market for the sale of high-profile commercial smartphones running the same stock Android software we enjoy on the company's own Nexus lineup. Now, chances are neither of these models are going to register very highly with your average smartphone buyer – the one who calls all Androids "Galaxy" – but for anyone who actually cares about phones, this is a big deal. After ...

    The Huawei Ascend P6, which we've recently seen in a leaked render, is expected to be unveiled in London at a June 18 event. Aside from being rumored as a flagship, the phone is also trying to become the thinnest there is, at just 6.2-milimeters. Latest chatter indicates that we should expect a 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution. Looks like Sundays are becoming "leak days". After seeing some other leaks today, here's another one, claimed to be the Huawei Ascend P6. There's a nice perspective of the rounded bottom of the phone and we can also see the (apparently) metal sides, a microphone ...

    Two new renders leak today to get us through the weekend. The Huawei Ascend W2 was leaked in blue recently and it looks like it won't be the only color option. A yellow variant has just popped up and if it reminds you of Nokia's colors we won't blame you. The buttons, this time, appear to be orange. Still, like before, no other info is available. According to previous speculation the Ascend W2 should pack a 4.5-inch 720p display, dual-core SoC, 1GB of RAM, eight-megapixel main camera, 2800mAh battery, a 7.7 millimeters thick body. Same story as above, different platform and manufacturer. ...

    There was a lot of speculation regarding the Huawei Ascend W2. At the end of last year we saw the phone being allegedly pictured and everyone was expecting to see the device at MWC. Nonetheless, at least the picture bit turned out to be true, judging by the render leaked above, and a bit of imagination. We're looking at a round-cornered Windows Phone. The Huawei Ascend W2 features what appears to be the compulsory camera button on the right side and the obligatory back, home, and search buttons on the front, apparently backlit in blue. There is no recent mention of possible specs but early ...

    Back in March, we heard about an upcoming Huawei flagship that – if the rumors were true – would take the top spot as the world's thinnest smartphone. We had heard similar rumors earlier in the year which ended up missing the mark, so we didn't give it an overabundance of attention. Since then, more evidence has arrived showing-off a 6.2-millimeter thick handset going by model P6-U06. Today, a number of renders of handset have finally arrived, revealed as the Huawei Ascend P6. As you can see above, that is one seriously thin smartphone. Additional renders of the P6 let us that the ...
