    With the Galaxy Note 7 out of the spotlight, perhaps it's time to move swiftly onto some more mid-ranger and budget-end devices? Let's start with Samsung's latest Tizen star, the Z2. Media renders have popped up ahead of the device's launch in India in just hours. The pictures do real justice as to how thick this device is. More of the specs can be found here. [gallery ids="480742,480743,480744"]   Talking about the Galaxy C9, — the literal flagship of yesteryear — we remain in India and with import-export database Zauba to find that an actual unit or eight has flown into the country. ...

    With Duo out in the open, we're still closing in on what might come through to Google's new messaging service, Allo. There's a lot of teasing going on during I/O 2016, providing us with an idea of what the features are. But we now have supposed grabs of how these features get into action via Android Police. The search engine inside of the app is a welcome progression from having to search through your Gmail records to find Hangouts conversations. It slinks through your chats with people and bots (such as Google Assistant) and even borrows from Google Photos' search engine to identify ...

    The fingerprint-prone metal backs of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force may not be seen on the Moto Z Play. We're already talking about the inclusion of some decent specs and a headphone jack, might as well add another material change-up. Well, this material might be just as prone to fingerprints as that metal that Lenovo utilized. Reddit is linking to some Imgur and Instagram samples of what appear to be the Moto Z Play in all of its... glassy glory. The Instagram picture really shows why the bets are on glass with a subtle spiral etching on the back. It's not typically a pattern we'd see ...

    A shell and three renders later, we have a pretty good idea of Huwaei Mate 9 looks like. Too bad we probably won't see it at IFA. The renders are part of a late leak from the Baidu side of Chinese social media (though the images have been deleted at the source). It still has that Mate 8-ish look, though with that modified dual-camera module with a different orientation than the P9 and a first eye on the front side — though it's nothing too fresh. The Honor 8 shares in common the Huawei P9's sensors, but it doesn't have the Leica branding that the latter has. We're not sure what will go ...

    With T-Mobile letting the HTC 10 go from its stores quick, the Taiwanese manufacturer might have to rely on a mid-range phone to bring the money line just a bit higher. Perhaps a mid-range phone or two. VentureBeat's Evan Blass is reporting that HTC is working on a Desire 10 Lifestyle as well as a Desire 10 Pro. A source has disclosed specifications for the Lifestyle variant — a moniker that was associated with a spec downgrade on the HTC 10 Lifestyle. The display will span 5.5 inches at a 720p resolution and it will show off whatever Android Marshmallow has in store. An unknown ...

    About 10 megameters (yes, we're using the term "megameter," deal with it) away from Rio de Janeiro in the Czech Republic, you'll be finding some gold-looking metals that will end up much lighter than the actual gold medals handed out at the 31st summer Olympic Games. No, these are not the Olympic Games, but rather the O-Leak-Pics Games! What? This stuff gets a little monotonous, okay? The metals are on the casing of what will supposedly be this year's gold-colored versions of the iPhone 7 (or 6SE) and iPhone 7 Plus. Letem světem Applem has the pictures by way of Chinese accessories ...

    It's rumored that Xiaomi has another big product launch scheduled for tomorrow (well, today in Chinese terms) and part of that expected lineup includes a VR headset. It's apparently one foamy little piece of kit, according to a well-known Weibo entity. Okay, other than the padding, there's nothing much to see here, to be honest. Rumors remain that this headset and the Xiaomi Mi 5s that may go along with it will be Daydream-compatible. MIUI8 gets a little tease as well on a smartphone that has a curved screen. If you haven't been paying attention, this is expected to be the Mi 5s. The ...

    We've been fielding rumors of the Moto Z Play having a headphone jack, unlike its thinner compatriots. The thought of a Moto Z Play is still up in the air at this point as we're picking up another set of photo leaks showing off what started out as the "Vector Maxx". MotClub has obtained four pictures (two of which from a Weibo post) of a device named just "Vector" with relatively barren design as opposed to the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. [gallery columns="4" ids="479016,479017,479018,479019"]   The device does share the large camera bump of the two, though, along with the 16 pogo pins ...

    If the cornucopia of recent leaks is of any indication, the upcoming Galaxy Note7 will feature a USB Type-C port. All of the leaked images and renders (like the one above from @evleaks), seem to testify that the Micro USB on the bottom is gone. Thankfully the headphone jack port is still in. It is also common knowledge, by now, that there will be a new Gear VR 2 headset accompanying the Note7. This is exactly because of the fact that the current Gear VR uses Micro USB connection, making the upcoming Note7 incompatible. Said headset will purportedly set you back 90EUR in Europe. So ...

    There's been no shortage of leaks when it comes to Apple's upcoming iPhones. The iPhone 7 (and variations, like Plus, Pro, etc.) is what the media calls them, but people who claim to have information, like Evan Blass, state that the number 7 (seven) will not be part of the name, hence referring to the device as the iPhone 2016. Regardless of how you want to call it, the iPhone 7 release date (or the iPhone 2016 release date) is predicted to happen on the week of September 12, according to Blass, which is shortly after the conclusion of the 2016 IFA in Berlin, and just a couple of days ...

    Meizu's MX line frequently plays second fiddle to its PRO series, but the company isn't interested in keeping the MX6 far of reach from the PRO 6. A company co-founder hinted at some spec sharing, now we get to see some design sharing in action. That's if you trust these unofficial renders which have been on Chinese social media. Hey, we don't blame you if you don't. We'll just mention that the PRO 6 has also been leaked in this fashion — and blatantly leaked to disprove some supposed iPhone 7 leaks. And yes, we're speaking of the PRO 6. And we're speaking of the iPhone 7. And we're ...

    We had several iPhone 7 pieces last week on the existential crisis of the headphone jack, otherwise known to us as #jaxit. If you've been yearning for some evidence with a little more body, you're in luck. We're turning back to NowhereElse.fr for another metal casing from an undisclosed source. In this photo, we can clearly make out the two speaker grilles on the bottom edge of the case. It's another picture for the "leave" camp. Earlier this month, the outlet's Steve Hemmerstoffer posted a CAD video (one of many before then) that showed off two new iPhone designs with differing ...

    Here's a quick one to quench your rumor thirst for the weekend. Evan Blass just confirmed (remember that he's not Samsung) that the official name of the upcoming Samsung (fall) smartphone will be Galaxy Note7. We already heard rumors of the company skipping a number (we're currently at Note5), among other chatter, but this time around it looks to be the real deal. There will be no Galaxy Note6. There could be a lot of reasons behind such a move from Samsung: lining the Note family up with the Galaxy S family (currently at number 7), in addition to counter Apple's upcoming phablet, ...

    But we're obliged to talk about it, if only for the market dynamics. And boy, is Chinese manufacturer vivo expecting the market to move. The X7 and X7 Plus are expected to be in the "mid-rangers-plus" category. The phablet of the two — can you guess — will have a 5.7-inch full HD screen and it's tied to a Snapdragon 652 with 4GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel main camera. There could be more RAM and more storage in another variant that may cost way more. How much more? Well, the base model is rumored to be somewhere above ¥2,500 (approx. $400+) and the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant could ...

    Tis the season for iPhone leaks, and none have been more polarizing than the iPhone 7. At this point we've heard of dual-cameras, options for more storage, meager design changes, and the death of the headphone jack. Still we know that Apple is famous for trying out tons of prototypes, and we assume that's the case as supply chain leaks point a different story. Rock Fix, a smartphone repair shop in Ganzhou has just leaked some photos of possible parts of the iPhone 7. These show us the dual-camera lens that we've discussed, which is to be expected, and we even see the storage modules from ...

    In addition to the giveaways that T-Mobile is told to be doing on Tuesdays, — much like AT&T is — the carrier's Un-carrier 11 promotion is supposedly going to make a bigger deal of its stock giveaway than we originally thought. The same source that tipped off VentureBeat's Evan Blass on the initial report has gone on to talk about "Stock Up" campaign. It begins with getting postpaid subscribers downloading the T-Mobile Tuesdays app before June 21. They will then receive a full share of TMUS through fee-free stock holdings service Loyal3 — it was previously reported that users ...

    The low-end Galaxy J-series might be in for another evolution to bring it in-line with the new and prim Galaxy C-series. Like most things, it starts from the bottom. This time, the bottom looks to be not a Galaxy J2 as the header suggests, but a Galaxy J3 remix that mimics the aesthetics of the Galaxy S6, at least on the back. With these renders picked up by Dutch site Galaxy Club, we find out there's a whole lot of change on the outside and even quite a bit on the inside. The form factor comes off as more squared than said S6. In its TENAA listing, we learn that the phone has a ...

    No honor among rumor mongers, they say. But who needs honor when Huawei can have its sub-brand Honor? It placed second in share of the Chinese mobile market in April. And now, there's some whispering of a smaller partner to the Honor V8. What looks to be a record of upcoming Huawei devices has been leaked and there are two model names — FRD-AL00 and FRD-AL10 — that look to be variants of the same model of something. The nomenclature points to these phones being Honor-branded phones and is being referenced as "Faraday". Chatter has talked about front and back glass panes for the phone's ...

    If Kyocera just isn't doing anything for your rugged phone needs, perhaps you're just a few weeks away from getting your hands on a Samsung solution. For the fourth consecutive year, we're looking forward to an AT&T co-opted Galaxy S Active device, tacky as it may look. Previous rumors seemed to say that the Active model would more likely take on the dimensions of the Galaxy S7 edge rather the plain 'ol Galaxy S7. It's better that VentureBeat's Evan Blass can give us a better idea of what will go into the phone based off a spec sheet the publication has acquired. So, a Snapdragon ...

    Weibo, like any other social media site, has its swarms of hornets occasionally. When it comes to mobile hardware leaks, disbelief can especially be prone to manifesting in awful ways. Take all of the rumors we've been compiling about a certain version of the Meizu PRO 6. It now seems that these photo leaks, previously connected to that device, have been implicated in a different Meizu device entirely — one possibly with an Exynos processor. The leaker of the Exynos rumor has since decried critics denying rumors of a double-edged PRO 6-like with the Exynos 8890 inside and a fairly ...

    Leaks don't have to be all about iPhones, Galaxys, Huawei, Xiaomi, Nexus, any real flagships, really, etc. etc. Take ZTE  — it's said to be planning a device called the Zmax Pro, according to a source to VentureBeat's Evan Blass. While previous Zmax devices have stuck to 720p displays on large canvasses with Snapdragon 400-series processors, the Pro is said to be packing in a Snapdragon 617 (eight cores running at 1.5GHz) right under a six-inch full HD screen. 2GB of RAM may same a little weak for 2016, but there is 32GB of flash storage for the suffering. The rear camera looks to have ...

    We now have a clearer idea of what the next iPhones looked like — in the minds of designers — earlier this year. NowhereElse.fr's Steve Hemmerstoffer is back at it, this time leaking more computer-aided design renders of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The renders are supposedly from Taiwanese design subcontractor Catcher and reflect Apple's blueprints from January. UK site uSwitch commissioned Hemmerstoffer for publication. Regarding the regular iPhone 7, we can see a protruded camera port that has been seen in other Catcher leaks as provided by Hemmerstoffer. An ...

    Looks like "modular" is in fact the buzzword of the year. At least, we can see a continuation of the trend if we trust VentureBeat's Evan Blass with some more information about this year's Moto X (or Moto Xs?). This follows on from the renders we saw of the devices along with a potential DROID Turbo 3 from HellomotoHK earlier. "A person who was briefed on the plans" said that both phones will have 5.5-inch AMOLED screens, be metallic and get sold under the Moto X brand. The pair will also have exchangeable backplates to add different functions to the device.   Thing is, the unit ...

    That picture up there? With the LG G5-ish dual-camera port? And also that Smart Connector? That's supposedly an iPhone 7 Plus. And despite our suspicions of it, a Japanese site covering Apple believes that picture and another one are showing off real (potential) changes. A second picture that we're talking about features CAD renders of some spartan iPhone 7 shells — with due notice to those reserved antenna lines — as leaked from Taiwanese manufacturer Catcher Technologies and picked up by nowhereelse.fr. Editor-in-Chief Steve Hemmerstoffer has also put up a cleaner take on the ...

    Many in the mobile tech media ranks have admitted to being at least a little excited for the HTC 10. In the 36 hours or so before the Taiwanese manufacturer officially launches the new Android phone, there's been no need to struggle through the pre-event ennui, much less to say the pre-availability ennui. GSM Helpdesk out of the Netherlands has gotten hold of pictures of a black unit, towed alongside a spec summary. We see affirmation of the 5.2-inch Super-LCD 5 screen with resolution of 2560 x 1440 as well as the removal of software navigation keys — they've been reformed as lit ...
