    With the already hugely successful Galaxy Note 7 unveiled early to get a head start on the iPhone 7 (or 6SE), LG feeling confident enough in the G5-similar sequel to the surprisingly popular V10 to give it its own special announcement event in San Francisco, and Apple of course not looking to share the spotlight with anyone else, you may view IFA 2016 as a tech sideshow of sorts. But let us assure you, that’s never been the case for one of Germany’s oldest trade fairs, and Europe’s biggest such gathering of high-profile consumer electronics exhibitors, and by no means is this ...

    This supposed phablet started out in the rumor mills as the Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Since then, we've been trying to parse together the ins and outs, the hairpins and straightaways, and all of the jokes claiming that six was too afraid of seven because the marketing team got involved. We are T minus five days to the next Samsung Unpacked event in New York, which is where we expect the Galaxy Note 7 to be launched. What better time to look back at how we, the tech media, have built this speculative motherboard up? Power The Note's legacy has been to be the leading edge of how much horsepower ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S7 is yet again, one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2016. The company may not sell as many flagships as it did a few years ago, but that doesn't mean that its device sales still dwarf every other smartphone OEM in the world. There are tons of rumors of the Galaxy S7, leaked renders, images, specs, bencharks, you name it. We've spent the last few months disecting as many of those as we could, and reporting on those we found most credible. Still, with the amount of back and forth that we noticed, even the leaks from trusted sources should be taken with a grain of ...

    Welcome to the HTC One M1-whoops, sorry about that. I think one of our rumors dispels that name. Anyways, what we know about this device, codenamed "Perfume," is that it's ... well, uh... kinda. Y'know. That it's ... the Taiwanese manufacturer's flagship smartphone for the spring of this year. And that's about it. Let's just get to it. The Time and The Place These two factors, as rumored, will likely grant us a lot more insight into what Perfume will give us. Our main timeframes to look out for so far have been late March, then mid-April for a launch and also mid-to-late May for a US ...

    The LG G5 is expected to be one of the hottest phones of 2016. There are tons of rumors that point to the company playing with a bold new design that might be smart enough to cause some disruption in the market. LG continues to be one of the few companies, if not the only one that still believes in bringing power-user expandability to its users. Hopefully the LG G5 will prove that the company will continue that legacy, and if not, then it proves that the company needs to re-think its approach for the future. Watch our video to learn more, or read up on it here as well:

    Not sold on Samsung’s “more of the same” Galaxy S7 approach, and instead looking for a flagship Android device like no other before it? The LG G5 could be the answer to your long-time pleas for palpable, major mobile hardware innovation, though there’s still not enough proof to support a drastic G4 redesign to the point the sequel’s battery will pop out of the bottom edge. What’s crystal clear is an LG G4-similar construction, with a bland plastic frame and replaceable leather rear cover, would feel like a step in the wrong direction after V10’s sophisticated, athletic and ...

    Samsung is leading the pack of smartphones powered by Android. Arguably the primary competition for Apple, Samsung has made some great hardware over the years. This time around we've been teased with “great vision” and “a unique view” coming in "The Next Galaxy". What does that mean, and what can we expect from the Samsung Galaxy S6? Let’s gather all our intel and see what we can come up with! Construction Not long ago we saw what was reported to be a fairly detailed schematic of the Galaxy S6's dimensions. If that document holds true we could see a phone that's 7.19mm thick, ...

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, HTC makes some dang good hardware - going back all the way to when the company manufactured PDAs running Windows Mobile. These days, HTC is going it on its own, responsible for the design, construction, marketing, deployment, and support of a wide and varied allotment of handsets powered by both Android and Windows Phone. The flagship leading the charge is the HTC One - currently the One (M8). HTC generally announces its next-generation flagship at MWC. With MWC 2015 just around the corner, we all suspect that the One M9 will be announced at the ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    Though it tends not to get the most media attention at IFA – Samsung has been stealing that spot for a bit now with its glamorous unveils – Sony almost always has quite a lot of things to show off at the Berlin trade show. This year is no exception, and the count for what the OEM plans to announce currently stands at seven mobile-related devices. That's quite a lot, so we were quite eager to get all the info in one place. So we went ahead and created a full rumor roundup for Sony's IFA 2014 announcements. Xperia Z3 Without a doubt the most anticipated product of this year's IFA is the ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note line started as a bit of a test of the market. At the time, everyone was used to phones that we'd consider today as fairly small, so the idea of a 5.3-inch phone scared us – so much so, that we even invented the word "phablet" for it. It grew into a widely popular line, though, and launches of new models have since become staples of the IFA trade show. We're right on the eve of the announcement of the next in a line of fairly successful phones, so we decided to go through the long list of rumors we've heard about the phone and compile it all into one Samsung ...

    It's happening. One of the best phones of 2013 is getting a refresh, and the whole tech world seems quite excited about it. With last year's Moto X, Motorola brought thinking that was way different than many of the other OEMs out there – it proved that phones didn't have to have top-tier specs and a boatload of software features in order to shine. It proved that a great phone doesn't have to look great on paper, so we're naturally looking forward to the successor to that product. The new Moto X (or perhaps the Moto X+1, as it may be called) is only a few days away, so we decided to ...

    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 ...

    Rumors of an Amazon phone have been swirling for years, and it's finally looking like we're close -- tomorrow, the company's executives will take the stage in Seattle, WA, to show off what it's been working on. As per tradition around these parts, it's time to take every noteworthy rumor we have seen crop up the last couple months, and spin them into an Amazon phone rumor roundup. Some of the earliest rumors suggested Amazon would team up with HTC in order to produce a joint-effort smartphone. Allegedly, three different release candidates were being worked on, with one far along in the ...

    One of the most anticipated products of the year so far has been the LG G3. After many called the flagships from HTC and Samsung subpar, all eyes have turned to LG to see what it can muster. The leaks have been especially torrential for this phone, so we've gone ahead and consolidated the big ones into this LG G3 rumor roundup. First, let's dig into the hardware. Front and center will be a 5.5-inch QHD (2560x1440) display manufactured by LG itself, and this has been confirmed by LG. The bezel will be an insanely small 1.15mm, and the pixels-per-inch count sits at 538. This display should ...

    Apple's not the only one with big news coming soon, and in just a matter of hours, Nokia's throwing a Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. There's a lot to cover here, so let's dive right in to the device that feels like it's the nexus of this announcement, the Lumia 1520. Well, it wasn't always the 1520 - not to us anyway. We've been talking about the general idea of a phablet-sized Lumia for a while, and back in August, that started taking shape as a phone codenamed Bandit. Before the month was out, we heard that Bandit might launch as the 1520, and our first look at fully-assembled hardware ...

    By this time tomorrow, Apple's event will have wrapped, and we should known everything we need to about both the full-sized iPad 5, as well as this year's new iPad mini 2. For the moment, however, there are still many questions remaining to be answered, especially when it comes to what's going on with the iPad mini. As we get our ducks in a row for Apple's announcement, let's take a look back on what we've heard so far. As there's much less controversy surrounding it, let's start things off with the iPad 5. Early on, we heard that Apple might not wait until the fall to introduce the ...
