    Yesterday we've seen how Google and LG are planning on allegedly brining more color options to the Nexus 5 palette and, on that exact vein, today we are seeing a purported picture of the red variant of the phone. According to the report, a yellow version of the phone is expected to launch around the same time, in the same region. The time is late February, early March, and the region is Vietnam. The picture above seems to show off a red Nexus 5 caught in the wild. Whether this is a prototype of an upcoming official phone, or just a fake dummy, is yet unknown. Before you get your hopes too ...

    Those running Android are familiar with the third party keyboard SwiftKey, whether they use it or not, whether we talk smartphones or tablets. Apparently, SwiftKey will make its way to the iPhone (and probably the iPad too), according to the latest from @evleaks. However, there appears to be a catch... iOS does not currently allow third party keyboard so the software bit hinted (read: leaked) here is called SwiftKey Note, which might as well be a note-taking application for Apple devices. There's no more information for the moment so we can't serve with anything specific, but the image ...

    The current Nexus phone, made by LG, is available in the classic black and white colors, but, according to this recently posted video, it might be available in more flavors soon. Before you get too excited, there are no details attached, and the veracity of this leak can't be verified, so just make sure to keep your skeptical hat on, just in case. About the colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple seem to be the colors featured in this video, in addition to the already available two. On one hand, it would make sense for LG and Google to offer more color options to consumers, ...

    After Verizon officially confirmed the name of the device to be the Nokia Lumia Icon, the page was pulled just to reappear again online together with a price tag and everything -- needless to say the page has been pulled once more. However, as the screenshots reveal, the press render of the device featured a Wednesday the 5th date on the Calendar tile. So does this most recently leaked screenshot from the upcoming user guide, revealing a bit from the Nokia Lumia Icon availability. And, as @evleaks rightfully noticed, Wednesday the 5th can easily be either next month, in February, or the ...

    There's no guarantee that the User Agent Profile file sourced below is actually for the HTC M8, but we'll have to take @evleaks' word for it; in his most recent tweet he shot out the link to the file and apparently, judging by both his tweet and the URL structure, this phone will be on its way to AT&T. As usual with UAProf files, they're not really telling: what we can make out of this is that we're looking at an HTC phone with Full HD resolution -- with a probably larger screen -- that will be running Android 4.4 KitKat, and which will be arriving to AT&T. The HTC M8 has been ...

    TouchWiz Nature UX has been gracing the home screens of Samsung phones and tablet for quite some time now, though the most recent tablet line-up from South Korea already features a newer version called Magazine UI, which we've seen in action on all tablets from CES this year. 2014 should also be the year when Samsung rethinks its smartphone user interface, and we've already seen hints on where the phone-maker might take it. Another leaked image, seen above, tries to anticipate how your Samsung Galaxy S 5 will look, in terms of what is displayed on the screen. If you think it looks like a ...

    Just before Christmas we saw a list of upcoming Sony phones and tablets, among which the Sony D6503, which is allegedly pictured above, and below. The device pictured in real life looks a lot like the Sony Xperia Z1, and it might very well turn out to be the rumored Sony Xperia Z2, that's been recently tipped for an MWC unveiling. Whether it is the Sirius (or the Sirius is the Xperia Z2, or this phone is indeed the Z2) is unknown. What we do know that this phone apparently has somewhat smaller bezels, which always means a larger screen, in case the chassis measurements are kept the same -- ...

    Update: Here's a bonus for you all! The date on the screenshot is Tuesday, 25, which can only be February 25, the second day of MWC. OEMs often use dates in their press shots that correspond to launch/announcement dates, so it is safe to assume, for the time being, that the Normandy should be unveiled at a press event in Barcelona, happening on February 25, say, 12:30? Looks like there's really no day passing by without some Nokia Normandy news, sighting, or leak. We've seen renders and real-life pictures of the phone and we're expecting this "forked Android"-powered Nokia device to make ...

    CES has always been the place where Sony unveils its flagship for the year: 2012 was the year of the Ion and Xperia S, and 2013 was the year of the Xperia Z. It was just normal for us to expect a flagship device at this year's CES and we were disappointed in only seeing an American version of the Xperia Z1, and its compact, younger brother (not that these two are not topnotch phones). The Xperia Z2 (at least that's what the rumors refer to the Z1 follow-up) might pop-up at MWC in Barcelona in a month or so. That's the general consensus (or the logical conclusion... or just wishful ...

    We're seeing more Nokia Normandy pictures pop up on the internet, after just recently being able to take a quick peek at the phone while allegedly being powered on. The Android (sort-of) powered upcoming Nokia device has shown its colors off in a leaked press render yesterday, and, we're now seeing a picture of a phone claimed to be exactly the Normandy, again, in real life. We're seeing a Lumia-like design, but that's not at all surprising, since some Asha devices also inherited the looks of some Windows Phones made by the Finns. The color appears to be a matte red one and the back shows ...

    The Nokia Normandy is still making waves after we've just seen the phone allegedly powered on for the first time. If you need a kind reminder, it's the phone which looks like an Asha phone, but it should run some sort of custom Android (read forked) build. A recent device leak not only shows off a rather large color palette to choose from, but also a very Windows Phone-like user interface. There aren't many details except that it should be landing this year (our bet is MWC 2014) and that the press render above seems to mimic the good old "Metro UI" from Microsoft's platform, maybe in ...

    The 2014 HTC One model, which we'll call HTC One Two, has been rumored for quite some time with the codename HTC M8. The image you see above, and below, is allegedly a 3D mock-up printed in resin of the upcoming phone, and the makers of the print claim the details were received from an insider with knowledge of the phone-maker's plans for the One refresh. The phone is more or less the same, though with rounder corners. The screen is rumored to be a tad larger than on the 2013 model, coming in at five-inches. The top and bottom still appear to hold the dual-front-facing speakers -- probably ...

    The phone codenamed Normandy by Nokia initially popped up about a month ago as a leaked render of a red phone, which since has been rumored to be an upcoming phone running some sort of Android variation as its OS. Said report also claimed the Normandy would land next year, which is pretty much around the corner. However, today's leak, aside from showing off additional color options (like black, cyan, yellow, white, and green) wears the "2013" description for the leak, so we're not sure about this one. As for the phone these renders claim to depict, we're looking at a Lumia-Asha crossover, ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Round turned out to be more of a "proof of concept" device, with limited availability. Then the LG G Flex was announced, this time, with the right curvature -- but it all comes down to personal preference after all -- and we've heard news back last month that the phone is expected to be on the line-up of most US carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. On that very same note, you can see above an alleged press render of the LG G Flex for Sprint, courtesy of @evleaks. The model number is said to be LS995, and we've already seen the phone drop by at the FCC. ...

    The advantages of on-screen navigation buttons, on certain Android devices, including the Nexus, allow OEMs to reduce the bezel on the phone's front, even if not every phone-maker takes advantage of that. Disadvantages include slightly smaller screen real-estate, because the on-screen buttons themselves take up a stripe of pixels from the available total. According to this latest leak by @evleaks, we're looking at on-screen buttons in the upcoming "Blue" release of Windows Phone, believed to be version 8.1. We have the same back, Windows, and search buttons, and The Verge is speculating on ...
