    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. Asus Zenpad Z8 for VZW: Snapdragon 650, 8", 1536 x 2048, 2GB/16GB, 8MP/1.8MP, microSD pic.twitter.com/7SOcCQWG7O — Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 28, 2016 Alas, a Transformer Pad this is not. It's likely that if Verizon is in ...

    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 ...
