    Hasselblad usually makes some maddening medium-format camera gear. But with whispers of the company shrinking its workspace a bit for the sake of a Moto Mod, we have something new to stare at. A photographer with a preference for Hasselblad products on Weibo has snapped a picture of what looks to be a camera grip Moto Mod. And it is a meaty one with variable aperture (minimum f/3.5-6.5) with a zoom range of 4.5-45mm (25.7- 257mm in 35mm equivalency). Add on a hefty flash and we've got one big show to get to. What's that show? Sources say it's IFA, of course! Lenovo will be there next ...

    What's a few days between a multinational tech conglomerate and its anticipating customers? Well, possibly a few weeks of shipping hassles. But if you're hitting your carrier up for an iPhone this September, you're probably going to have an easier time than most and without the wait until 3am Eastern/midnight Pacific. That said, it'd help if you could get an idea of how long you'll have to wait for your AT&T iPhone 7 (or 6SE). And 9to5Mac thinks it has an idea, thanks to a leaked AT&T store reset schedule. Two dates are listed on it: September 9, and September 23. The former ...

    A Weibo leaker claims to have some another smartphone metal shell in their hands, this one not being the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, we can be thankful that it's not a working prototype at this point. These pictures show us what the back side of the Huawei Mate 9 may look like. As the Mate series has gone on, we've found this device to be an evolutionary result in design, though the orientation of what may be a dual-camera unit differs from the Huawei P9's setup. We don't know if one will sensor will shoot in color and the other in monochrome as the P9 did. The flanking of what we ...

    Something real has seemingly appeared on the Nexus front. It is not like anything we've seen before, unless you count very vague appraisals and a generic slab non-Easter egg in a Google Photos ad that everyone (including us) thought it just might have been similar enough to something else. That said, what else can manufacturers' slab culture run besides... slabs? Android Police has received some visuals on what Google's Sailfish phone might look like and some strings between that device and the larger Marlin device. The Marlin will "share the same basic industrial design and materials" ...

    Part two to this working iPhone 7 prototype extravaganza we seem to be having today is this 26-second video clip of the same unit we saw in stills today, getting its rear camera toyed around with. The Geekbar editor that posted the earlier pictures to his Weibo account also posted a video to sister site Miaopai (which, incidentally, is one of the bigger causes of Blurrycam Syndrome you see here — compression at its best). The below YouTube transfer is courtesy of TechTastic: The iPhone itself is detailed from multiple angles along with what we presume to be internal diagnostic software. ...

    If you want the Nexus software experience (at least on the home screen) without getting a Nexus device, you can apparently just go on the internet and get it. The .apk is out for the so-called Nexus Launcher — and that brings some pertinent questions to a head. First off, is it going to replace the Google Now Launcher? That one still exists on the Play Store for now, but could it get replaced when the time comes? The user interfaces offer starkly different interpretations of how an Android home screen should operate. [gallery ids="479288,479289,479290"]   While the Google app ...

    For the first time ever, it would seem that the new version of Android will not be released at the same time as the latest Nexus hardware is announced. In fact, it might come earlier. It's only part of the story that tech leaks reporter Evan Blass is tweeting about. Android 7.0 releases next month, with the 8/5 security patch. Sorry Nexus 5 owners, no Nougat for you 😢 — Evan Blass (@evleaks) July 30, 2016 We don't know what else he may or may not know, including a date for when we might be able to confirm the existence of two speculative HTC-made Nexus devices and even a possible ...

    The iPhone 7 has spanned the world in leaks, but this one comes from relatively unfamiliar Vietnam — and no, it doesn't even show off one of those manufactured shells, though the leaker supposedly got this little treasure from a Foxconn affiliate plant. It comes in the form of a video showing off what is believed to be the official adapter from a Lightning connection to a 3.5mm headphone jack. The iPhone 7 has long been rumored to drop the port. If Apple is making a product to sell and/or graciously put in with each and every box, this adapter certainly would look like such a thing — ...

    If you're familiar with this leak, it's because this one's pretty much looking like the last one. New pictures are up on Xperian.ir of what's assumed to be the Sony F8331, a to-be-named device in the Xperia X series. As with a photo leak from a week ago, the front and back of the device are shown, but this time with the device's screen off. Other eye-catching aspects like the sharper corners, the two-part back designed for optimized antenna reception, the vertically-oriented dual LED module and the body's inky black color remain in view. We may see this device debut in September at IFA ...

    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."

    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. Pretty reliable (not 100% but almost...) source told me #iPhone7 battery = 1960mAh (#iPhone6s = 1715mAh) — OnLeaks (@OnLeaks) July 13, 2016 For what it's worth, at the ...

    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 ...
