    If there's one thing that has left Gear VR users feeling like they're using a bastardized Rift, it's been the lack of a controller. Oculus has been working with Samsung for the past few years on the Gear VR, but are facing pressure to up the ante as offerings from Google's Daydream VR and Sony's PlayStation VR come creeping around the bend. Therefore, this leak about an upcoming Gear VR Gamepad doesn't sound too out of the question. It comes from Czech site MobilMania and features a design unlike previous ones we've seen for said competing projects — mainly in that the gun-grip design ...

    The hype has been real for several years. Samsung or LG would always set up a little display showing off moving pictures on a thin filament of bendable material and we're all left with the impression that a foldable smartphone would be so close down the road. Well, it's 2016 and we're only getting just a whiff of a Galaxy X coming along the way ... for next year. But a Chinese leaker has come into contact with an OPPO prototype of a foldable smartphone. Supposedly, it's been a work-in-progress since August 2015 and it was only in February that engineers started energizing that flexible ...

    We've seen bits and pieces of the latest Galaxy C-series phones come to leak. From its firmly mid-range specs to a less appealing sales price, we've seen this HTC look-alike before. But have you seen it in Technicolor? Well, get ready because this ain't Technicolor — we have seen these colors before. A bunch of Galaxy C5 renders have dropped by SamMobile that may be part of a 360° product view. There are four choices of hue you can see above: in order they are gold, pink gold, gray and silver. You can view each color in all 13 of their angles at the source link. We are supposedly ...

    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 ...

    Let's talk iPhone audio once again. Because the headphone jack just wasn't enough. Through NowhereElse.fr, we see this example of what is said to be an Italian-manufactured accessory case for the iPhone 7. Two things strike out in this design: number one, the four speakers adorning each corner of the device and; number two, the rearranged ports for the camera equipment on the back. It's amazing how both changes make way for the other in the slightest of ways. That vertically-aligned port layout is similar to the one found on the iPad Pro and would be better suited than a horizontal layout ...

    Sprint is officially the last stalwart of two-year contract in the US. It had initially dropped them for new customers early this year the same day that AT&T did, but brought the contract option back a month later. We think that the carrier wanted a little help during the major flagship season, but that's something up for debate. Also up for debate is this leak sent to Android Central, telling of another farewell to two-year contracts come May 24. This will apply to new and existing customers for upgrades or line additions. Installment plans or leasing will be the way forward. ...

    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 been a slow, agonizing wait for an uber-quick charge. At least it feels that way, but it's only been shy of three months since OPPO showed off its Super VOOC charge standard. It could deliver a 20W current to your phone for a full charge in 15 minutes, the people on the stage at MWC said. Well, when are we going to see a phone with this Super VOOC? Glimmers of hope have started peeking in different forms. Over at the dubiously-connected-to-OPPO phone manufacturer OnePlus, we saw certifications for the OnePlus 3 with a 20W charging standard. This came after it had applied for a ...

    Google-owned Niantic Labs, the maker of Ingress, has been working with // The Pokémon Company to literally bring a beloved video game franchise into the real world. That project is being called Pokémon GO. Excitement has building around the game with gameplay footage leaked continuously onto YouTube. When it came time, fans in Australia and New Zealand got to the chance to field test the game on iOS and Android. It's now the US's chance to join in on the capturing, trading and battling fun. You can sign up for a chance to play around at the source link below. Keep in mind that the ...

    If last week didn't get your engines revved for the iPhone 7, well, you're probably tired of seeing Steve Hemmerstoffer's name. Probably because it's a fairly long one, but we really don't know what your beef is against him. Anyways, we have not a render, but a photo leak of another iPhone 7 unit, courtesy of Weibo. In addition to the now-familiar revisions in the antenna line design and the engorgement of the camera port, we see an extra hole in between the lens and flash. We figure that one is the typical rear microphone, but the other port sees Apple join the crowd with a focus-assist ...

    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 — ...

    What do we know about the OnePlus 3 so far? Well, it's going to be here soon in one of many boxes. There's some form of fast charging on the thing. And the rest is pretty much all TBD. Cross USB Type-C off that determinations list, though. @the_malignant on Twitter, typically on the HTC side of the leaksphere, has what is ostensibly our first clear view of the front and bottom of the OnePlus 3. #OnePlus3 front & bottom "I omit the rear side 'cause is not the retail shape ; ) " pic.twitter.com/aLBYsk4Wte — The Malignant (@the_malignant) May 13, 2016 Okay, the back may not be ready for ...

    If you like your leaked renders with a little movement, well, today's your lucky day. Steve Hemmerstoffer of NowhereElse.fr has put out a video tour of the computer-aided designs for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus he leaked yesterday, published in conjunction with UK site uSwitch. The blueprints from Apple subcontractor Catcher Technology we see are, again, of Apple's January design stage — thus, we don't have anything new to add to what we wrote about the previous leaks. But to recap the leaks: both phones drop the headphone jack and stick with a single speaker both phones have ...

    After several iterations of last year's Desire 626, HTC has decided to finally give a full update to the series. While new and more impressive specs are appreciated, we're left confused as to what the Desire 628 has to do with the Desire 630 we learned about at MWC. Twitter leaker The Malignant has posted some specs of the 628 with some familiar looking skeumorphs. #HTC DESIRE 628 5'' 720p, MTK6753 1.3GHz, 3GB RAM/32 GB ROM (+SD), 2200 mAH, R 13 mpx f/2.0 BSI, F 5 mpx, Dual-SIM pic.twitter.com/OZVhVypHVg — The Malignant (@the_malignant) May 8, 2016 If anything, the Desire 628 looks ...

    We're not sure if this is the cherry on top of a new phone or something different, yet not far off. Whatever it is, Moto has sure had a fast-flowing news cycle in the past 24 hours. HellomotoHK is back at it again, flashing some Motorola confidential property in front of some corrugated metal. A real front panel of a Moto device — you'll want to see the Moto logomark just above the fingerprint sensor that's not on these renders — doesn't really provide much information, but the Google+ post tells us that the device is a "New Moto Flagship with AMOLED & ShatterShield Screen." ...

    Whoa, what happened within a day? We covered another NowhereElse.fr CAD leak of the iPhone 7 today that had a protruding camera port and nearly the same dimensions of the iPhone 6s. Then again, there's this anonymously-provided dummy unit that MacRumors was able to get a hold of. It is alleged to be a design option of said iPhone 7. The sharpest change we can see here is the camera bump, or, the lack of one. It goes against previous leaks of an LG G5-esque embossing that would circle around the camera. The antenna lines we've been seeing on leaks have been reduced by a notch further — ...

    While developers continue to work on "double tap to wake" for the latest Lumias in addition to some further bug bashing to support the Anniversary Update, it seems that Windows 10 Mobile may get another feature that Android and iOS have had for a long time. Onetile out of Russia has obtained an internal build screenshot showing off an option named "Apps for websites", a feature that would allow for URLs to open up either in a browser or a compatible app. You could, for argument's sake, be prompted to open up a link to our Facebook page either through the Edge browser or through the ...

    Ring flashes, 10-LED flashes, moons and flashes, it all comes in proximity to smartphone cameras these days. Posts on Baidu are now swinging some attention over to the Sony side with another Xperia phone on the loose. This one has a beefy selfie camera and a flash to boot. [gallery ids="469925,469926,469927,469928,469929,469930"]   While the Xperia line hasn't been known for surprising design, there is just enough change to distinguish this leaked phone that we're calling the Xperia C6 Ultra from the Xperia C5 Ultra, both apparently at six-inches in screen size. As opposed to the regular ...

    The leak reactors are back up again and we suspect that it's prime season to start yelling continuously about the 2016 Moto X, whatever the heck it will be called — so help us god. If you have doubts about the heat pipe that's supposedly in this thing or the metallic form factor that would leave Lenovo holding the bag for bringing Motorola into conformation with the endless seas of metallic phones, this leak tipped through hellomotoHK's Facebook page will not assuage anything. // Say Hello to fingerprint☝ Thanks Don to tips us!

    We find ourselves on Weibo yet again with something that makes itself out to be a "real iPhone 7." And beyond the flavor text and intense watermarking comes a claim we can't substantiate just yet. In the accompanying Weibo post, the original poster called out the A10 processor, 3GB of RAM and yes, the bezellessness. While we don't usually stare into the abyss, — it does stare back into you after all — we may be able to glean some dark-colored bezels underneath the glass panel. Even if that can attributed as part of the compression artifacts in this picture, the only way we can know for ...

    We have some of the clearest spoilers of what has been characterized as HTC's last stand in mobile. Or, something like that. But it doesn't come without its share of doubt, especially when it comes to the front panel of the HTC 10. But if you'd like to poke at the new flagships' backs — the listing sticks to the "original metal shell" or "battery cover back shell" — in silver and black, go right ahead and take a look at some pictures from a Chinese equivalent of eBay, Taobao.

    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 ...

    Yep, we're talking about that thing you see close to this block of text. That so-called iPhone 7 design. We had our doubts about this very weird shell of a new iPhone, calling notes of the HTC One Max with the pogo pin connectors and the LG G5-style dual-camera housing. Of course, we've had to deal with Meizu jabbing at the media with recent antenna lining reveals. However, sources have been coming out of the woodwork to say that what we've been seeing was a prototype, codenamed "D10." The pogo pins and two rear cameras for the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 7 have since been cancelled. ...

    It's been more than a year since the nation's largest bank deserted Windows Phone's app ecosystem. Speculation went about on how this was in preparation for writing a Windows 10 app. While we can't tie that speculation to Bank of America's rumored comeback to the platform, we now have a supposed due date for when apps will hit screens large and small. Based on a leak of an internal BoA website that Windows Central obtained, the universal app will be released on March 28. It'll have the usual features a banking app should have in 2016 including bill paying, mobile deposit (a first for ...

    There are a bunch of new pictures, yet, nothing really new to see here. Huawei is expected to come out on April 6 with what we suppose is its P9 handset. From what we could tell from other beer and skittles surrounding this thing, there are dual cameras on the back, a circular fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C and a pretty straightforward design. And these new leaks show such a phone, wrapped in red bubble wrap. [gallery columns="4" ids="466799,466800,466801,466802"] Spec speculation right now is focused on the chipset: will it be a Snapdragon 820 or does Huawei have a Kirin 955 ready? We'll ...
