    We've heard about the HTC M8 Ace, and we were wondering just what exactly it might be; however, according to the rumor mill, it might be a One variant of some sort, which would be cheaper (because of the possible plastic shell), but retain the Snapdragon 801 processor from the One (M8), and a five-inch Full HD form factor for its display. The latest from @evleaks hints that the HTC M8 Prime, which he just mentioned, is the phone to look out for. There are no further details concerning this device, but, judging by its moniker, it should be a higher-end device than the flagship HTC One (M8). ...

    Call it the Samsung Galaxy K, the Galaxy S5 Zoom, or the Galaxy K Zoom, we all know what we're talking about: it's the 2014 follow-up to last year's Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. We've already heard about it, and it seems like a logical move for the South Koreans to follow last year's pattern, which includes a camera with a phone, alongside the mini version of the flagship. April 29 should be the day of its unveiling, if the reports and chit-chat are spot on, and a week before that, we're seeing some leaked images of what the device might look like. As you'd expect, it is still a camera with a ...

    Even though we're still months away from the probable launch of the iPhone 6, we all know the way case makers operate. Somehow these companies manage to get their hands on the official designs of the phone and start producing cases like crazy. Case makers haven't always gotten it right, but most of the time they have, and they're at it again with the iPhone 6. We've come across some dubious images of a transparent case that could be for the iPhone 6 phablet, alongside the 4.7-inch model. You'll notice that the power button is now placed to one side, opposite to the volume buttons, but the ...

    Mid-last-week we've seen the initial renders of the Tab 4 7.0 get leaked courtesy of @evleaks and today we're being treated to official press images of another upcoming South Korean slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. There's no doubt that both of these tablets will be part of the same family of products, and they're expected to be less powerful/more affordable devices compared to the CES TabPRO and NotePRO line-up. As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 will have a ten-inch screen, and so far it is expected to have a resolution of 1280 x 800. While nothing is official for ...

    On April 2, Nokia will unveil more Windows Phones, as the company itself has teased the event using the #moreLumia hashtag. Since it coincides with Microsoft's Build conference, we're likely to see an upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device (or maybe more), but there's no word on whether we should expect a high end or a lower end phone (though multiple devices is still a possibility). According to the latest from @evleaks, T-Mobile Windows Phone fans should soon expect a Nokia device to land on Magenta's line-up. The codename mentioned is "Monarch". This T-Mobile Nokia Monarch could very well be ...

    March 25 is the day HTC is expected to release the 2014 follow-up for the HTC One, and even without today's leak, we were wondering what else is there that HTC can say in order to surprise us. The phone, and its features, related aspects, have been leaked extensively over the past couple of weeks, but today we're seeing a full 14-minute video hands-on of the yet unannounced device. It is German, so if you don't happen to speak the language, you'll have to settle for the video footage itself. Apparently the phone is being called "HTC One" and not "The New HTC One", at least that's what's ...

    There have been a lot of rumors concerning a future possible 8-inch Nexus tablet in the past, and, according to recent reports, it might be closer to the 9-inch form factor, at 8.9-inches in diagonal. Said rumors talk about an end-of-April timeframe, but a recent report mentions volume production for the 9-incher for July/August, for the Nexus 7 (2013) follow-up. "The expectation is [that] this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications", claims the report, which also mentions "high-performance" specifications. Google's Nexus line-up isn't ...

    You know it's Sunday because of all the leaks that are popping up to get us through the weekend. After seeing the LG Lucid 3, we're now treated to a leaked official press render of another upcoming Verizon phone, this time running another OS, and made by another manufacturer. In case you forgot, there was a so-called Samsung Huron that was making the headlines not so long ago, and apparently the device above is just that. Called the Samsung ATIV SE, it is undoubtedly a follow-up to the 2012 ATIV S, with slight tweaks to the design (more Galaxy S4-ish, if you will). Aside from the usual ...

    Almost a year ago Verizon announced the LG Lucid 2, which was really LG's Optimus F5 tailored to suit the carrier's needs. Since it's been a almost a year, the network operator is probably planning on bringing a new model to its line-up, and the phone above appears to be just that. According to @evleaks, we're looking at the LG Lucid 3. With model number VS876, the Lucid 3 is expected to be a mid-ranger device with the usual Verizon logos and a Samsung-like home button. The overall design of the phone has been tweaked a little and it's more in line with (actually we're almost convinced it ...

    We know, thanks to Oppo, that on March 19 we should expect not one, but two versions of the upcoming Find 7 flagship: one with a Full HD, and one with a QHD/2K screen. We've seen the phone recently leaked, showing off its design, but what we have here, above and below, appears to be a full Oppo Find 7 leak including retail packaging. Accompanying the pictures of the device, and its box, are mentions of some of its specs: Quad HD/Full HD screen, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM. Sadly, we're not seeing the callouts on the camera, which was rumored to bring 50 megapixels to the Android ...

    Upon returning from MWC, we heard rumors of an upcoming Nokia phone, codenamed Martini, that would run Windows Phone 8.1, aka Blue. A rumor popped up shortly after that there might be an April 19 Nokia event, where said Martini would officially be unveiled, alongside some other Windows Phone devices from the new Lumia line-up. Today, we're hearing new rumors, thanks to @evleaks, that the phone codenamed Martini, will actually be the Nokia Lumia 930. Whether this Nokia Lumia 930 is the same as the one we were expecting to be unveiled at MWC is unknown; however, those rumors mentioned ...

    Last week was a pretty leaky week here on Pocketnow. I say that, not because of the number of leaks that came out, but because of what happened in the leaky world. First, we had an amateur video released about the All New HTC One (HashtagANHO) by a 14 year old whose mommy or daddy had some ‘splaining to do the next day at work. Then the leak wizard himself, Evan Blass a.k.a. @evleaks came on to the Pocketnow Weekly and dove into the depths of what it’s like to be a leak-master extraordinaire. A set of questions that arose from that interview was how legal and how moral was Evan’s ...

    The LG G2, depending on the region and carrier, was codenamed the D800 (AT&T), D801 (T-Mobile), D805 (Global), and some others. @evleaks has posted a screen grab of an alleged User Agent Profile document that mentions a certain LG D850, believed to be the upcoming G2 successor, the LG G3. While the file doesn't reveal much, aside from the codename (attributed to the LG G3), it does however mention a 1440x2560 resolution, which is QHD (quad-HD), or, in other words, 2K. We know we're expecting the South Korean company to unveil the G2 successor (which will turn one-year old in August), ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 will bring a lot of new features to the table, and, thanks to this video walkthrough, we're also seeing a revamped default camera application, which seems to inherit a lot from the Nokia Camera application. We're seeing quick shortcuts to shooting mode selection (auto, close-up, night, night portrait, sports, backlight, as well as the good old lens selector. Additionally, you can customize the icons/shortcuts shown in the viewfinder (including ISO, exposure, scenes, and other useful shortcuts), as well as toggle, like you would expect, flash to off, on, or auto. Check out ...

    The purpose of dual cameras on the upcoming HTC One has been a topic of debate ever since we first heard the rumors, and seen the leaks depicting the imaging system and arrangement on the back. Some were betting on 3D, while others, including us, were convinced that HTC will try to improve on overall image quality as well as focus. A leaked ad, seen below, details the purpose of dual cameras, while at the same time confirming The All New HTC One denomination of the upcoming 2014 flagship. Apparently, the main raison d'être of the secondary camera is to choose focus. Nokia (and, more ...

    On March 19, Oppo is going to unveil its next flagship, dubbed the Find 7. The company has given us hints in the recent past (concerning some of the features on the upcoming device), and the most recent talks about not one, but two phones, and the main differentiator seems to be the screen resolution: Full HD vs 2K (QHD/quad-HD). We've also heard some "outrageously" exciting rumors of a 50MP camera, but before you get your hopes too high, check out the image above. While there's still more than a week to go until the phones' unveiling, what seems to be an official render of the phone has ...

    Last we heard about the upcoming 2014 HTC flagship, we were presented with a couple of high-res images, backed up by a partial press render of the alleged phone showing off dual-cameras (and duotone, dual flashes) on the back. The leaks seem to continue with what appears to be a complete gallery featuring the purported HTC One follow-up (coming from China, hence the China Mobile carrier branding on the back of the device). You will not only be able to see almost every angle of The All New HTC One (tentative name), but you will also see the phone being sized-up against the HTC One Max ...

    At the HTC event at MWC 2014 we've seen Peter Chou on stage showing off the Desire 816, but the press release that was sent out also contained the HTC Desire 610, which was sadly not available in Barcelona. To refresh your memory, it packs a 4.7-inch display with qHD resolution of 540 by 960 pixels, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (expandable), eight-megapixel camera, 1.3MP front-facer, and a 2,040mAh battery. While availability is expected in Europe for May, @evleaks has unveiled that the phone will also join AT&T's line-up in ...

    LG has done a very interesting job with the G Flex. Even though lots of people still debate the need to even consider a flexible phone, that doesn't change the fact that it's been selling rather decently around the world. The company is planning to offer its Android 4.4 update for the device in the next coming weeks, and this could mean more than just a software update for you all. We've already seen how XDA-Developers was able to port the G Flex to allow 4K video recording, aside from even 120fps video recording capabilities. What we didn't expect was for LG to actually make this ...

    "Today is February 19th, Wednesday, and ... this phone is not out yet. But I get the phones early because I'm ... sponsored." So begins the most lengthy, in-depth, and thoroughly shady phone-leak video we've ever laid eyes on, and it stars none other than HTC's as-yet unreleased flagship, the All New HTC One (previously known as the M8). In addition to an up-close-and-personal view of a star-spangled comforter, we're treated to a full tour of what appears to be a black All-New HTC One for AT&T's network. Included in this tour: a side-by-side comparison with last year's HTC One, ...

    More mid-range devices is basically what HTC executives said the company would be doing this year, in order to try and boost sales, as well as financial numbers. The Desire line-up is already a successful one, but today's leak reveals a future possible upcoming HTC phone, dubbed the Desire 8, which could very well end up being a mid-range phablet. The specs indicate a 5.5-inch display (somewhat larger than the rumored five-inch display on the upcoming 2014 One), however, with an unknown resolution (and we hope for 720p). The camera is tipped to be a 13MP shooter (a standard one, not the ...

    The 2014 HTC One has recently leaked in a picture showing off some pretty 2013 One-like looks. It also seemed to have rounder corners, and a taller form factor, more in the vein of the HTC One Mini. However, just like with the case of the alleged back leak, we're seeing something different on the front today. If previously we've seen several leaks claiming to be the real back of the 2014 HTC One, they all differed, and mainly through the positioning of the dual LED flashes (either adjacent to each other, or separated). Now something similar is going on on the front too: the previous image ...

    The Windows Phone 8.1 SDK has made its way to select developers, hinting some Windows RT merger goodness, and also revealing a bunch of screenshots regarding future features. However, a video has surfaced showing the Emulator in action, demonstrating some of the features included in the build. Before you dive into it, please note that the final version might be different than what you see, and that some of the Windows Phone 8.1 features are not included with this specific version. The video below shows off some of the enhancements that will grace (hopefully) all of our existing Windows ...

    Sony Xperia Z2 is the tentative name for the company's upcoming phone, with model number D6503 and codename "Sirius"; it is believed that Sony will unveil this phone, together maybe with a Windows Phone (and who knows, the Xperia Tablet Z's follow-up), at its upcoming special event in Barcelona, at the 2014 MWC. We've seen a very blurry image claiming to depict the Z2, with a super thin bezel on the sides. Now, a set of alleged Sony Xperia Z2 screenshots tries to anticipate some of the phone's software features. 4K video, alongside 60fps 1080p, recording capabilities are hinted by the ...

    Update: Sorry folks! Due to circumstances beyond our control, we need to reschedule this special appearance. Pocketnow Weekly 083 will go under the mic on Thursday as scheduled, but Evan won't be able to join us. We'll still be announcing our Nexus 5 giveaway winner though, so be sure to tune in! • When we started the Pocketnow Weekly podcast back in July of 2012, it bore little resemblance to its current incarnation. There was no handy list of time codes; the music was built on an aggressive electric-guitar riff that now sounds impossibly cheesy; and subtopics like the "thought ...
