    Who's ready for a little Funkausstellung? We're about a week away from the start of IFA 2014, where mobile device manufacturers from all around the world will descend on Berlin to show off their newest products. The F in IFA –Funkausstellung– may translate as “radio show,” but the expo has evolved far beyond its early audio roots to feature the very latest in smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The Pocketnow team will be on the ground in Germany to share with you everything IFA 2014 has to deliver (or at least, everything worth seeing) but before we send our boys abroad, we wanted ...

    Earlier this week, rumors about Google's follow-up to the Nexus 5 took a turn. We had already been talking about the idea of Motorola manufacturing this hardware, and after rumors bounced around the theory that we could be looking at a 5.9-inch phablet-sized handset, they settled back at a slightly more mainstream 5.2-inch screen size. But all of a sudden, it looked like we might not be getting the Nexus 6 we assumed would we be on the menu, and instead the phone would arrive as the Nexus X – a name we'd been tossing around a year prior in the lead-up to the release of the Moto X. Today ...

    Going back a little over a month now, we've been hearing whispers about Motorola's work towards a new Moto G. From the sound of things, this second-gen model (a Moto G2, perhaps?) would make some big changes, growing to offer a five-inch 720p display – though that could also mean the phone arriving with a noticeably steeper price tag than its predecessor did last year. Motorola's invitation for its September 4 press event makes a new Moto G launch look like a near-certainty, and as we wait for our chance to go hands-on with this hardware ourselves, we've got a new leak to check out, ...

    The Moto X+1 should be among us in the next couple of weeks. There is a lot of pressure for this phone to live up to the market acceptance that the Moto X never reached with its unique features. Even if Motorola would decide to only fix a couple of quirks, the Moto X is still ahead of its time, and reports claim that the Moto X+1 will push the bar even further. One of the biggest complaints we had with the Moto X was its camera, and trusted sources claim that Motorola has found a way to fit optical zoom into the camera of the Moto X+1. We're not exactly sure how the company will pull this ...

    Overnight, we shared with you news of what looked like yet another in a growing number of Motorola Androids nearly ready to launch, the Moto Luge for Verizon. There was mention of an intriguing new service called Moto Aware, and we looked forward to learning more about the hardware. But now a little more info on this model has managed to make its way public, and the story it's putting together is one that's feeling less and less interesting. What's the problem? The Moto Luge appears to be little more than a re-branded RAZR M, a smartphone that launched a solid two years ago. When we first ...

    Last year, with the launch of the Moto X, Motorola introduced its Skip NFC accessory. The little tag could be used to quickly unlock the smartphone, although our hands-on found Skip a little awkward to use. With the Moto X+1 expected for next week, will Skip once again be a featured accessory? A new leak FCC publication suggest that Motorola's been cooking-up a totally redesigned second-generation Skip, and this one adds a bunch of new features by way of bringing Bluetooth support to the device. While the first Skip was an entirely passive NFC tag, the new Skip would be a battery-powered ...

    The news is in: LG is making a round smartwatch, the G Watch R. Motorola also has round Android Wear aspirations in the form of the Moto 360 – so which will be the Android Wear watch to buy? It's tough to tell until we get review units in-house, but we all have very basic first impressions of both, so we decided to put the question to you: LG G Watch R or Moto 360? We don't know much about the two watches, other than the fact that they are round and (most probably, in the case of the LG) run Android Wear as their operating system. They both are easily more normal than the other two ...

    In case you haven't noticed, it really looks like Motorola is getting wild this year. Apart from the rumors surrounding the new Moto X and G iterations, leaks of new Verizon Droids and the Nexus X have also been fairly bountiful. But news out of left field has hit us today, as Motorola may have teamed up with Verizon to create the Moto Luge, and launch day may be just later this week. According to a source of TK Tech News at Best Buy, this phone will be "specifically marketed to Verizon Prepaid customers," and there's support baked-in for Verizon's newly switched-on prepaid LTE ...

    Rumors have been flying that Motorola has been chosen to make the next Nexus iteration, and most (if not all) called the phone the Nexus 6 – it's the sixth Nexus phone to be made, and it's also rumored to have a 5.9-inch screen size. Today we're seeing a report that looks to partially shoot down these earlier rumors, as the Motorola Nexus X name leaks for the first time. According to unacknowledged sources of PhoneArena, the phone will be named Motorola Nexus X (as we said earlier), and it will allegedly have the Motorola model number XT1100. This leads us to think the earlier report ...

    When smartphone shopping, so many people run straight for the spec sheet. Or at least they start there and then move on to stuff like build quality, materials, reviews, etc. But it really is about the specs for most people. I’m not going to lie, I’m like that too, for the most part - latest and greatest for me. This is not a crazy concept. Future proofing is a big concern in the world of smartphones. You’re putting down anywhere from $300 - $800 or you’re signing away 2 years of your life for a device in a field that has a tendency to pump out new technology faster than you can say ...

    One of the longest-standing rumors about the Moto X+1, popping up right around the same time we saw evidence for the phone's name, has concerned the sort of customization options that would be available through Moto Maker. Supposedly we'd see the return of wooden backplates, which sounded nice, but word was we'd also be able to choose from a few leather options. That leather idea returned in subsequent rumors, but we've yet to see any firm confirmation. We're still not quite there yet, but today brings us at least some new circumstantial evidence, as a retialer appears to confirm the ...

    One of the most hotly anticipated phones of the year will be announced on September 4, and because that date is so close, it's only natural that we see more and more leaks as we get closer to launch date. Today we're taking a look at a bombshell of a leak, of what is expected to be the Moto X+1. Learn what these Moto X+1 renders look to confirm. First of all, we can see the front facing speakers on both the black and white fronts. Apart from that, there's not much more about the front: there's a Google Now Launcher-esque launcher, and plenty of things pointing to these renders being of ...

    What does Motorola have coming up next in its device pipeline? We've got the X+1 and G2 expected for the company's early September event, rumors of a new Nexus model, and most recently word of a possible return to tablets. But if we keep focused on just phones, exactly how many are we looking at? A new rumor attempts to nail-down Motorola's plans for the remainder of the year, naming eight smartphones expected to make their debut. We've got the Moto X+1 and G2 (though that name's still up in the air), as well as that Shamu Nexus. Then there's the Moto S, recently rumored to be an early ...

    We've been hearing a surge of Motorola news as of late, and the reason for that may be because of the sheer number of phones and tablets the company is working on. We've heard a report suggesting there could be eight devices out of the company by the end of this year, and now we're hearing information letting us know that multiple new Motorola tablets are also possibly in the pipeline. According to anonymous sources of PhoneArena, Motorola is testing various screen sizes for tablets -- anything from 7 inches to 12.5 inches could materialize if the company decides to go through with it. ...

    We've all heard a ton of rumors pointing to the possible launch of the next Moto X, and there is even a scheduled Motorola event that points to this launch as well. These rumors claim that this Moto X+1 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2GB RAM, all decent specifications for this year. Now, what if some new rumors point to another Motorola smartphone in the works, and oddly, a more powerful one? Leaked CPU-Z screen shots show us a new Motorola device under the codename "Quark_Verizon," and with a model number XT1254. Motorola regularly keeps model numbers ...
