    iPhone 6 rumors continue to flood the web, and the good thing is that we they are no longer just mock-ups or fake renders. As production of the iPhone 6 has begun, parts of Apple's new smartphones start to do their job in revealing what we can expect. Today we find some of the first metallic parts being leaked, and the biggest news is that we now know what colors we should expect for the iPhone 6. Today photos have emerged of some the power flex and volume flex of the iPhone 6, which are both in charge of connecting the buttons to the logic board. Now, even more interesting is the leak ...

    It's a been a while now since we've had an announcement about new Exynos SoCs from Samsung. Back at MWC we were expecting the company to reveal a series of new 64-bit chips, but instead got the 5422 Octa and 5260 Hexa: interesting chips, sure, especially that six-core configuration, just not the specific components we were hoping to see. But now Samsung's once again teasing the arrival of forthcoming Exynos news, with some sort of statement set to land tomorrow. We're not picking up on anything particularly 64-bit about the image above, distributed as part of Samsung's teaser, and instead ...

    Before Microsoft's acquisition, Nokia's mobile device division didn't become famous just because of the great flagship smartphones that it produced, but also because of the entry-level devices that were pushed at amazing price tags. Such is the case of the Lumia 630 that we recently reviewed, in addition to the Lumia 520 as well. Still, we've been following the rumors of the Lumia 530 for a couple of weeks now, and more details have emerged today. After seeing some of the renders of the Lumia 530 in previous leaks, today we see some real photos of the device leaked on Chinese social media. ...

    The idea that Samsung's next-gen Galaxy Note phablet will be powered by a 64-bit chip is pretty far from controversial at this point. We know Samsung's been pursuing 64-bit tech, and have seen evidence pointing to just such a 64-bit Exynos in testing. We've even specifically checked out the 64-bit Exynos 5433 attached to Note 4 leaks. So when @evleaks chimed-in early this morning that the Note 4 will be a 64-bit device, it was a pretty easy rumor to accept. What's possibly more interesting, though, and certainly far more head-scratching, is the puzzling analogy that came alongside it: The ...

    New hardware destined for Verizon has found itself at the center of quite of stories we've brought you lately. For instance, there was that leak earlier this week that sure seemed to reveal Verizon's plans to train staff on an incoming Sony Xperia Z2. We've also been on the lookout for news of the start of Verizon LG G3 sales, as all three other major carriers have already announced their plans. There's still nothing official just yet, but today a series of Verizon rumors attempts to shed some light on what's just about to go down at big red. Word is that Verizon will announce the start of ...

    LG sure seems interested in adding some new members to the LG G3 family, and just last week we saw some images of the G3 Beat for China. But was that five-inch handset the “G3 Mini” we'd been talking about, or a fully separate G3 spin-off? We're still looking for an answer there, but even with that question open-ended, new details on LG's plans continue to arrive, and today we check out a leak that claims to reveal the LG G3S. According to @evleaks, this is the device we've been calling the G3 Mini, and at least the one we're looking at here will be have dual SIM support – that seems ...

    What's next for Google's tablet aspirations? We're nearly a year removed from the launch of the second-gen Nexus 7, and it's still uncertain where Google intends to go from here. Rumors have long talked about the possibilities of a Nexus 8 or Nexus 9, and while a fair amount of circumstantial evidence has accompanied those theories, it's been notoriously difficult to talk with much certainty about the next Nexus tablet. That's what makes this latest find all the more interesting, as it seems to state with crystal clarity that a Nexus 8 in in the cards – but should we be a bit critical of ...

    Early last week we got to check out a couple components form unreleased Sony handsets, which sources claimed to belong to upcoming Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact models. It wasn't a lot to go on, but Sony did move quite swiftly from the Z1 to the Z2, so it's not crazy to think that we should already be talking about plans for the arrival of a Z3. Later, we saw a leak give us a little hardware insight into the Z3 Compact, but it didn't help us narrow down Sony's possible launch window any. Today, though, we finally start closing in on when this hardware might arrive, as a new carrier leak ...

    Case makers have been famous for getting an early look at what's to come from Cupertino in order to build compatible products. We've been bombarded with a ton of iPhone 6 cases and mock-ups over the last couple of weeks, and given their similarities, it's hard to deny that these could point to the final product we might see in September. Today, famous case maker Spigen has listed one of its compatible products for Apple's iPhone 6, which only gives the previous leaks an added level of credibility. Spigen published an Amazon listing for cases that are compatible with the iPhone 6 in 4.7 ...

    Microsoft may not be famous for its late announcement of Windows Phone 8.1, but the amount of features included were enough to justify its timing. Microsoft's new mobile operating system is finally on par with its leading competitors in almost every relevant feature, and it seems that the guys at Redmond are now focusing on speed when it comes to the major updates to Windows Phone 8.1. A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Windows Phone would receive two GDR updates in 2014, Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 1 happening in July and GDR 2 happening some time in November. Some new rumors have it that ...

    About a month back we got to check out a pretty comprehensive Nokia leak, detailing the company's long-term smartphone strategy stretching all the way out into fall 2015. While that included a lot of still-very-far-off devices, there were a number described as being just over the horizon, ready to land sometime in Q3 as the first models shipping with WP8.1 GDR1. Those included phones like the ones codenamed Superman, Tesla, and the anticipated McLaren flagship. Today we switch focus from codenames to model numbers, as a newly leaked roadmap shows the progress towards bringing three new ...

    Ever since the Sony Xperia Z2 came out, we've been wondering about details surrounding a move into United States territory. Sony historically hasn't been too prompt, with examples like the T-Mobile Xperia Z1S for show. That said, several images have hit the internet straight from Sony showing a Verizon Z2 -- could this be happening? Today, a leaked Verizon document shows us that it's likely that a Sony Xperia Z2 Verizon release is imminent. It's been many months since its release, but the Xperia Z2 is still no slouch. As evidenced by our review, it stacks up well against the HTC One M8 ...

    As we get closer to the launch of Apple's next-generation iPhone, which we continue to dub the iPhone 6, more rumors emerge on what to expect. We've heard that Apple might bring a sapphire crystal panel to at least one of the alleged iPhone 6 models, though if you're wondering why this is worth it, you can watch our extensive introduction to sapphire. Still, it seems that Sonny Dickson got his hands on one of these panels and decided to show you just how durable it is. Sadly, even though Dickson does mention the word sapphire in the title of this video, that doesn't confirm that what he's ...

    So far today we've been dealing with a higher-than-usual concentration of news surrounding Windows and Windows Phone, checking out rumors both about Android-running Lumias and Android app compatibility for pure WP8 devices. While that last report drifted into software territory, we're swinging back over to the hardware side of things as a couple new rumors discuss new Windows Phone and new Windows RT devices. First up, we could be looking at a new version of the Lumia 1520 phablet, the 1525. The only differences we've heard mentioned so far are that the 1525 would run WP8.1 out of the box ...

    Sony's got a smartphone event planned for tomorrow, and initially, this looked like it might not be anything more than another check-in with the Xperia Z2a, a phone that already went official last month. On its own, that wouldn't be so interesting, but then a new component to the event started attracting attention: the idea that Sony could also introduce an all-new model, and one with a special ability to take high-quality front-facing photos – a selfie phone. Now, we see Sony itself teasing news that seems to fit with these rumors, and also get the arrival of a hands-on video that ...
