    But why are we talking about it? It's not going to be there come Unpacked time anyways, right? At least, that's the assumption we're making out of all the words about Samsung's curved-only strategy for the Galaxy Note 7. Well, if you've been hoping for a flat screen (weird to be saying that for a smartphone), you can continue hoping. One Weibo user has seven pictures of a working Note 7 unit with a flat screen. It's black, it's glossy, it has room for an S Pen and it boots into TouchWiz. [gallery columns="7" ids="478225,478224,478223,478222,478221,478220,478219"] Samsung doesn't tend to ...

    Sometimes, it can take so few letters to convey something that may prove to be so sweet. But it has to happen first. What we're talking about is what everyone's been talking about leading up to August 2: the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung will show it off at a New York event. Everything else about it is still up in the air like specs and feature set. We think we know that pre-orders for the phone will be up right after the Unpacked show, but what does it mean for excited customers on the carrier side? Well, here's one take from Evan Blass: TMO PROMO: GN7 BOGO — Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 19, ...

    So, who do we have to talk to and bribe to get one of these mockups over here? It feels like everyone should be on a mission to China to buy off what's been described as iPhone 7 shell duplicates "from the manufacturer". And then everyone shows those dupes on video for the world to pick up. This time around, we have Chinese audio brand BeSound — which makes a Bluetooth speaker literally titled "Football" as in American football — showing up with a gal named Mook and an iPhone 7 shell right next to an iPhone 6s. The video's much clearer than that previous and prolonged Miaopai leak we ...

    Slab tablets don't have much luster these days. But Samsung does know how to shine in this category, so it may as well keep the counter up with another Galaxy Tab S release. And it seems that the Tab S3 launch won't be too far off from a refresh of Galaxy Tab S2 models. That's according to Eldar Murtazin of Russia's mobile-review.com, a source of some tasty hit or miss leaks. September 1 - Tab S3 ;) видимо так и будет — Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) July 19, 2016 The Russian text reads, as translated by Google, "and [it] probably will." A good notch of confidence from ...

    They say that you can tell a lot about a person by looking straight into their face and finding the soul in the eyes. The same rule can't really apply to phones, but it seems that people will try and find meaning anyways. We find ourselves back on Chinese microblogging site Weibo and back in Guangzhou at the New Asia Electronic and Digital City, an electronics marketplace, for what other outlets are calling a "spy shot" of all three rumored iPhone 7 models. That includes the iPhone 7 Pro and the iPhone 7 Plus along with the little iPhone 7. But with this photo and the one above showing the ...

    Miaopai, China's equivalent of Vine, doesn't just take six-second long videos. It takes 160-second long videos. Two minutes and 40 seconds. Enough time for an in-depth comparison between the iPhone 6s and what's supposedly the iPhone 7. Just don't get too excited, though. Weibo blogger Low Key KK says in the video that the metal casing he has is the correct design as received by the manufacturer, but it was handmade and not die-cast (read: not off of assembly lines), so we're not getting a real real look at an iPhone 7. But it seems close enough. Again, we see the big camera port, the ...

    What is it with people showing off their however-gotten technology during their lunch breaks? What happened to the bedroom videos? No, not those bedroom videos. Setting aside the setting, we get to see what we've seen from several design render leaks in real life — or as real as a video can get. A seven-second video from Chinese Vine analogue Miaopai purports to show the iPhone 7 with its questionable back and bottom design at a restaurant table. It is being relayed courtesy of 9to5Mac. We see Silver and Space Gray variants getting tilted to show off everything from the edge-hugging ...

    You want something to keep you fueled for the rest of the day? Maybe a decent battery case for the iPhone 6s, first off. Secondly, why not tackle a better battery for the iPhone 7? We might be pushing past 1,850mAh here, somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,000mAh this time around. Steve Hemmerstoffer of NowhereElse.fr and Twitter leaks account @OnLeaks has relayed a little piece of information you might appreciate.

    Another day, another Note 7 leak, though this one was apparently removed from the Weibo account it came from. More evidence, slightly doubtful with the deletion, but still evidence that the Galaxy Note 7 will have a curved screen version. If you're looking for a little harder proof, though, look to Indian import-export database Zauba which has picked up some components in the past few days. The tightest focus goes to the back glass panels in that they are "waterproof". It's another bit of reassurance that we'll see an improvement we found in the Galaxy S7 carry over to the Note 7. Whether ...

    Update: We've finally been able to check out the original post from which the header image came from. An administrator at a Thai Facebook fanpage called "I Love HTC Thailand" decided to cook up a quick image shop of the One E9+ as an anticipation of what the phone might look like. It was then picked up on Weibo and swept over to us. Looks like we've nipped this one in the bud. As HTC is trying to put itself back on the main stage of attention for something it can make money on, it may be focusing on revising its mid-range smartphones with, perhaps, just one mid-range phone. It's said to be ...

    While some of its best work comes at a high price, HTC does not want to leave any of its customers wanting. Given how the HTC 10 isn't doing favors for the company, we think it's a sore sign that it needs something transformative in the mid-ranger sector. So thinks HTC, at least through leaks switcher Evan Blass. *coming end of Q3 — Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 10, 2016 If there is a Desire 10 on the way, does that signify a mid-range flagship to rule them all? That is to ask, rather than ante up with mainland competitors for the mid-range mobile market that they have flooded, could HTC be ...

    Evan Blass told us that it was going to be the Galaxy Note 7. Now he's showing us the Galaxy Note 7. And it's three colors strong. On Twitter, he has put pictures to the device and names to the colors with one special hue previously hinted at in a Korean trademark application.

    When one shoe drops, the other shoe has to at some point. When one of two Nexus devices — both supposedly made by HTC — got its specifications splayed out in the open, you knew that the other had to be outed sooner or later. Well, Android Police has an idea of what a 5.5-inch phablet will bring, thanks to its source. So, what's going on with this spearfish? An unnamed quad-core Qualcomm processor with 4GB of RAM and either 32 or 128GB of storage. Fronting the phone is a quad HD AMOLED panel and an 8-megapixel camera. Below the 12-megapixel rear camera is a fingerprint sensor. ...

    Call it a victory for T-Mobile. Or don't, it's got its own problems these days. Verizon Wireless said that it is planning on "some fireworks next week" — a response to leaks and rumors on the Verizon subreddit claiming a huge changeup in what the carrier will offer on top of its plans on Friday. The tiers won't change in any way. An "S" plan would still have 1GB for $30 per month and an XXL plan keeps its 18GB for $100 a month. But if you're on either the XXL or XL plan, you'll have a better time with these new features to "The new Verizon Plan". On the plan, unused high-speed data gets ...

    We seem to be in the preliminary stages of Samsung Gear S3 hype at the moment. After rumors came out that there will be one relatively soon, that it will run Tizen and have a round watchface, we're already sneaking a peak at what it may look like. Yes, peak. Why? Because the exposure on these photos is way, way past peak.

    The microblogging platform is working on damage control after a massive credential leak left about 33 million Twitter accounts' user information out in the open. Michael Coates, Trust & Information Security Officer, stated in a blog post that the company is "confident the information was not obtained from a hack of Twitter's servers." Coates theorizes that the credentials could've been obtained from an amalgamation of data from past breaches of other sites and/or malware that reads browser-stored passwords. The company took action: In each of the recent password disclosures, we ...

    Another day, another big passwords leak. LeakedSource, a site that provides users access to possibly compromised records, has received 32,888,300 Twitter account credentials from someone going by "Tessa88@exploit.im". In a sample of 15 users, all of them affirmed that the passwords revealed related to their accounts were theirs. The crack likely didn't occur on Twitter's side, but with malware on the user side that read off passwords saved to browsers — Chrome and Firefox, mainly. Tied email accounts most affected had domains with Mail.ru, Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail and Yandex. The most ...

    Look into your eyes and you may soon see more of Samsung. After launching the Galaxy Tab Iris just a few weeks ago, it looks like another device should be able to scan your iris — and it may be the Note 7. In addition to a passcode or a fingerprint tap, a leaked screenshot from a recent Galaxy device shows an option to use Iris-scanning for security verification. Windows Hello has brought iris scanning to Windows 10 Mobile while one of the few recent iris-scanning smartphones on the Android side only served a limited audience for ZTE. This should bring a new form of security to a mass ...

    The Moto Z is coming together for a launch this week. Why are we talking about another phone here? Because it got a pretty meaningless photo leak today. Just like how the OnePlus 3 has a pretty meaningless photo leak today — well, at least for the places that aren't China. A Tweakers forum was able to dig into Chinese eBay-like TaoBao and find a product image for the OnePlus 3, not exactly on sale just yet. We'll see the OnePlus 3 launch in exactly one week.

    We're only a couple of days out from Lenovo Tech World where Lenovo is expected to debut the Moto Z. With rumors and leaks, we feel like we have a pretty good idea of what the two versions of the phones look like. Then again, it's always another look from a different perspective — this one from the side. This teaser poster is just one more leak to add to the dogpile and we can thank Weibo for it. We can't verify anything about the poster, but it definitely does feature what looks to be a prominent camera Oreo and the volume and power buttons. From what's been leaked, we know that we can ...

    The OnePlus 3 gets its official debut next week and we're getting a bit of the flavor of what the device can do with its reported 16-megapixel rear camera. OnePlus CEO Liu Zuohu posted a few samples from his OnePlus 3 of his varied lunch of okra, what looks to be spicy wonton soup and bean curd. These samples are scaled to 1024 x 768. [gallery ids="474649,474650,474651"]   The images uploaded come up to 4640 x 3480 in resolution, good enough for 16 megapixels. If we can take these pictures at face value as real samples, we seem to be dealing with some limited lighting and, ...

    The Moto Z's rumored MotoMods don't just stop at functionality. As much as you can get a better speaker or an extended battery for your new Motorola/Lenovo device, modular fashion is also going to play a big part in pushing the device to certain consumers. That's according to a few leaks of the so-called "StyleMods" from HelloMotoHK's Facebook page, "MotClub HK". The header we have up features a poorly color-keyed array of backs that range from the standard metallic to different shades of leather and some unique-looking lumber — we're willing to take the bet that that one on the ...

    Every so often you'll find Chinese manufacturer ZTE come up with some neat Android-powered projectors. We've played with the Spro 2 all the way back last year. It got picked up by AT&T and everyone went along their merry little ways. Fast forward more than a year and we find that T-Mobile has a product listing for the Snapdragon 801-toting pico projector in its support column. Sources to TmoNews say that band support has been tweaked for the Un-carrier's HSPA and LTE bands (including band 12). We might see this device launch Tuesday, June 7. No word on pricing, but AT&T charged ...

    Maybe someone just can't compete with Pebble and they just need some room. Maybe HTC really is making the Nexus phones this year and Google decided to take them up for a reference design. Maybe one of the prides of Taiwan has just one huge feature it wants to stuff in and it needs rigorous testing before they feel like it's going to be okay. Maybe it's just a clusterf***. Evan Blass has an idea of where HTC's "Halfbeak" wearable project is going and whether or not he knows more than he lets on is irrelevant. All he's saying is that after several tiresome delays of launch, this ...

    In a time of transition where tablet growth is forecast for more convertible pastures, there are still manufacturers making slabs out there. This one here, as evidenced by a leak from Evan Blass, falls within the majority of the market — a small, budget Android tablet. The ASUS Zenpad Z8 is supposedly headed for Verizon Wireless with a compact form and mid-range specs.
