    The HTC One A9 may go down as a wash for the Taiwanese OEM at a time when it could not afford to keep on the lather-and-rinse roll its been going through. Now, as we look down the HTC One pipeline, we've been seeing divided reports on what a new device, codenamed "E56," might be packing. This is an update to a story we posted earlier today and is also a great case study of how a leak gets incubated in such a short period. nowhereelse.fr Known muckraker entity nowhereelse out of France put up a post on Saturday suggesting that this HTC One X9 could be a step up from the One A9 in terms of ...

    Didja buy a Nexus 5X? How about that Nexus 6P? Did you buy it from Google? Did you buy it from Huawei? Do you know when you're getting yours? You might now as we're chasing tails on some updates from Reddit. First of all, if you want to buy your Nexus 6P from Sprint, sod it. It's not selling either of the phones. But the company's employee manual tells us that service reps will happily take your Nexus 6P on starting October 14 — that's Wednesday. That means some antsy buyers who chose next-day shipping may see their phones on the way by tomorrow. Of course, the date means little just ...

    Remember that HTC Aero leak with the side-by-side comparison of the "champagne" iPhone? Remember how intense that hue stared at you into your soul? Are these good or bad memories we're forcing you to remember? Well, with all the other Aero rumors about the specs and release date still up and walking the moon, we might as well chew on the fruit that drops first. Six different colors are expected for the HTC One A9 palette. One of them is called "Acid Gold." Another has gold in the name. Three of them are shades of gray. And the last one is definitely pushing into pomegranate territory ...

    Tonight's the night the nexii are putting out their laundry. With the boxes out in the open, it would be high time for the real things (or the retail-ready facsimiles) to come out. They did. And now we're looking at them. First came the Nexus 6P leak this evening. We're able to match details from the picture to the real-life leaks we have as well: the flathead camera lozenge, the large, rounded body, the fingerprint sensor location as well as the layout for other branding accoutrements. The facade should give way — this we're guessing to be from more leaks — to a 5.7-inch screen, a ...

    After initially hearing quite a lot about a certain upcoming HTC phone, codenamed Aero, said device is now being referred to as the HTC One A9. Said device will likely be announced later in the year, though some rumors have suggested dates that are already behind us. That didn't stop the device from allegedly being pictured next to the iPhone 6. The image you see below is allegedly a screenshot representing benchmark results of a certain HTC One A9. We advise you to remain skeptical about this, as there's no way in verifying the veracity of the information below. At the end of August ...

    Whether it really was the real deal or not, Monday's leaked (purported) LG Nexus 5 render gave us probably the best look at the upcoming smartphone, granted, just for the back of it. One day later we not only saw two (black and white) color options, but we were treated with a look at the smartphone's side, but, as we get close to that rumored October 13 launch date, accessory manufacturers (especially case makers) are gearing up. One such LG Nexus 5 case maker, Ringke, is showing off its clear case in the render above. Luckily, Ringke is also (allegedly) showing off the front of the ...

    The Cityman and Talkman are codenames for two smartphones that Microsoft will allegedly unveil in the near future. According to some reports, October 19 is the date to circle in your calendar if you are looking forward to seeing new Microsoft Lumia flagships. While we've been seeing renders and leaks of all sorts regarding the two aforementioned phones, the leak we're looking at is hopefully going to further clarify things. The images above and below appear to be official press renders (claimed as such) of the two upcoming Microsoft Lumia flagships, the aforementioned Cityman (above) and ...

    If Google indeed plans to keep its next two Nexus smartphones on the sidelines until October, there may not be much left to announce by then. Already, we (think we) know a great deal about the stock Android Marshmallow-powered LG and Huawei phones, with the former manhandled and rendered last week, and the latter following suit now. This isn’t the first time we’re getting convincing hints as to the external appearance of the alleged Nexus 6 sequel, but the photos floating around the interwebs today show something we haven’t seen before: an actual N6 2015 prototype, in all ...

    The rumor mill has been clamoring with stories regarding a couple of new entries in the Nexus franchise this fall, and most tipsters seem convinced LG and Huawei will join forces with Google before long. The former manufacturer may return to finally upgrade the two-year-old Nexus 5, and we’ve just got the scoop on another big improvement. Besides adding a fingerprint scanner to the mix, no doubt upping the processing power and RAM ante, and likely revising the rear-facing camera, the second-gen Nexus 5 should also noticeably augment selfie performance. The mediocre 1.3 MP front sensor of ...

    There were (are, and probably will be, until the official unveiling) a lot of rumors concerning Apple's 2015 smartphones. There were various, some concerning a strengthened chassis, some referring to a pink model (rose gold), and many others regarding Force Touch and other aspects of the phone. Some reports talked about a 12MP iPhone 6s camera (and iPhone 6s Plus), a bump from the 8MP found on current models, and today's rumor seems to confirm this. Of course, this is no official confirmation, as it comes from unnamed sources within the supply chain. Said anonymous person talked about a ...

    Sony fans will be glad to hear that the Sony Xperia Z5 rumors are not stopping, which is usually a good indication that a phone is on its way. We've seen a lot of leaks in the past couple of weeks, including general hardware and aspect, a fingerprint scanner (oddly placed on the side), as well as a bold move (treat this one with skepticism) to set a new standard by bringing a 4K display to the handset. Today's report brings us a set of photographs allegedly depicting a Sony Xperia Z5 dummy unit (which should pretty much be identical to the real deal). The pictures come from China and the ...

    When Motorola announced the Moto X Play on July 28 (together with the Style/Pure), many were disappointed that the manufacturer revealed no plans to make the Moto X Play available in the US. As the phone is making its way to retailers (and lucky early owners' hands), there was a rumor at the beginning of the month talking about a Verizon Droid Turbo 2, and, at that time, we thought that it might be the rebranded Moto X Play. According to a recent report, the Moto X Play will indeed make its way to the US; it will allegedly be the Verizon DROID Maxx 2. Renaming the same phone for different ...

    HTC's 2015 flagship, the One M9, didn't manage to enjoy the success (of its predecessor) the company was hoping for. As a result, the company's financials aren't rosy at all, and we are all waiting to see what CEO Cher Wang was referring to when talking about a "hero" product (product could also mean something that's not a smartphone). So far, HTC's been consistent with its flagship, naming it One, One M8, One M9, and releasing it around MWC 2015. It would be safe to assume that the HTC One M10 would be landing around MWC 2016, but previous rumors talked about a late 2015 announcement of a ...

    Update: If there was a need for a new render from a different angle, in order to blow away any doubts on the QWERTY slider bit, Evan Blass has got us covered with this latest render (at the bottom) The BlackBerry Venice managed to generate a lot of buzz, mainly because it would, according to many, bring the "both of both world", with Android on-board. According to the most recent Evan Blass leak, the BlackBerry Venice is not only real, but it is expected to become official in November, when it will be released on all four national US carriers. It is not yet clear what the BlackBerry ...

    When it comes to the 2015 Nexus, nothing's certain. The internet claims there might be a 2015 Nexus phone made by LG, and there might be one made by Huawei as well, though this latter bit is getting thinner and thinner by the second. An initial, unofficial render, tried to depict the upcoming 2015 Nexus made by LG, and, later, a hands-0n image sort of confirmed the looks of it. ...and then this Huawei 2015 Nexus render came along, and turned everything upside down. Maybe there will indeed be two Nexus 5 phones this year, and the rumor mill claims the one with the smaller screen will be ...

    Update: Eagle eyed readers have spotted, and confirmed, some of our suspicions. The image at the very bottom of the post depicts the Samsung Galaxy A8, and this particular phone has a double slot on the left edge. We might be looking at this in the picture above, or Samsung might be doing the same with the Note 5. Thanks @cinquetacche! Before you become too happy or excited, we need to warn you to keep skeptical about this. There's no way in telling whether the device pictured above is indeed a Galaxy Note 5 variant, as claimed, or another Samsung phone. That being said, here's the ...

    No, we won't judge you if, at any point during today's upcoming Samsung Unpacked event, you'll have a deja vu. The rumor mill, reports, and leaks, have done a tremendous job in revealing what the South Koreans have up their sleeves concerning the Galaxy Note 5. We've seen and heard a ton, and even carrier leaks have confirmed the bits. Today's leak comes in a form of a comprehensive photo gallery purportedly depicting a dummy of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, a dummy that would later be displayed in retailer locations and shop windows. Whether it is accurate or not, well, you decide. It ...

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 should be the company's flagship SoC, and, while we don't know anything official about it, it's been in the headlines thanks to rumors, reports, and leaks. We expect it to be 35 percent faster than its 810 predecessor in terms of CPU performance, and bring a 40 percent improvement over the Snapdragon 810 in terms of graphics performance. Samsung has decided to ditch the Snapdragon 810 and go with its own Exynos 7420 inside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge (most probably same chip, or 7422 version inside the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus). Whether ...

    The week of September 7 -- with a possibility of September 9 -- is what the latest rumors talk about with regards to Apple's upcoming event. Of course, nothing's certain until we see press invites going out, and, until then, we have to rely on various reports and leaks, like this most recent iPhone 6s assembly leak in the form of a video. When it comes to the iPhone 6c, things aren't clear at all, with so many conflicting rumors hitting from all directions. Last we heard about the iPhone 6c was last week when a report claimed we won't see the phone until the second quarter of 2016 (after ...

    Just a couple of days before seeing the most recent, extensive, picture-based Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus leak, we've heard weird reports of a future possible Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus keyboard cover, and, judging by the leaked image itself (as well as the source of the leak), we have little to no reason to doubt it. Furthermore, the reports don't just stop there, as now we're hearing about a possible price tag for the upcoming keyboard accessory. The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus keyboard is listed on a Dutch retailer's website at 48EUR (58.08EUR with tax), which roughly translates to ...

    There are four more days until the August 13 event when Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in New York. So far, these two devices were among the most heavily leaked once, but whether that's accidental, or on purpose, is anyone's guess. After taking several close looks at the Galaxy Note 5 over the course of the past few weeks, we are now treated with another set of images; this time we're most probably looking at final hardware, as the pictures are claimed to originate from a meeting where a company representative showed off the Galaxy Note 5, and S6 Edge ...

    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 was probably the most controversial and disputed system-on-a-chip that the company has ever made, due mostly to reports of overheating issues, and throttling in order to contain the alleged problem (also reflected in revenue figures). That didn't stop many top-tier manufacturers from including it in their flagship smartphones (LG G Flex 2, HTC One M9, Sony Xperia Z3+, to name a few). The company is expected to share all the details of its upcoming Snapdragon 820 chip next week, but, until then, we are treated to some leaked slides that shed some early light on ...

    The picture you see below, claimed to be "very raw material" drawing of the 2015 Nexus, has been leaked suggesting the back layout of the upcoming LG-made 2015 Nexus. It looks like a back cover to us, and we won't debate its veracity, but, instead remain skeptical. The leak suggests that there will be a camera, a flash, and something else, which could be a fingerprint scanner, or another camera. There were rumors that claimed the upcoming 2015 Nexus will feature a 3D camera, and we asked ourselves (and you) whether that would be a good idea or not. Some of us are intrigued by this, but we ...

    It's official: Samsung is holding its Unpacked event on August 13, in New York, leaving the IFA announcement model. That won't put an end, though, to all the rumors and leaks; on the contrary, we're seeing more and more pop up, and we already have a feeling that we know every detail regarding the Galaxy Note 5. We sure hope that's not the case, but, after seeing live images of the upcoming phablet (not once, but twice), we now have an additional look at what's in store. The image above and the stills below claim to represent the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, and we think they do a pretty good ...

    Update: after a closer inspection of the image below, we believe we are seeing a curvature on the bottom left side of the image (corresponding with the right edge of the phone (and the phone's case)), lending some credence to those rumors that claim the Galaxy Note 5 might have a curvature on the back, similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge's front. What do you think? We've already seen a real life picture of an alleged Galaxy Note 5 prototype (mule), and, more recently, we've seen stills purportedly showing a Galaxy Note 5 in its full glory, together with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Today, we're ...
