    Motorola's Moto G began life as a 4.5-inch smartphone, but for its second generation with saw the handset grow to a 5.0-incher. We've been looking forward to the third-gen Moto G for months now, and the past few weeks have been jam-packed with all manner of leaks, hoping to give us an early look at the phone – leaks that have been quite consistent in establishing that the 5.0-inch screen size was returning for this year's model. While we probably won't get official word until Motorola's event next week, today we pick up some very formal-looking evidence, as a leaked display card from a ...

    We're still scratching our heads trying to understand Apple's motive for not sharing specific Apple Watch sales on yesterday's conference call. That said, Tim Cook kind of teased the figure with specific revenue information, and that has led to some interesting speculation. Analysts are already predicting how the smartwatch market has evolved after the Apple Watch, and the changes are significant. Strategy Analytics is already predicting that the launch of the Apple Watch represented a 457.3% growth in the smartwatch market when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm speculates 4 ...

    Rumors about corporate acquisitions in the smartphone world have a funny way of surprising us. Just look at last year's acquisition of Motorola by Lenovo: it felt like Google had only just bought the company, and the idea of dumping it already sounded almost preposterous – until Google confirmed the news just hours after the first rumors landed. So when fresh rumors starting bouncing around yesterday that Google could be looking to purchase a major stake in LG, our thoughts quickly went from skeptical to imagining how we might just see such a thing happen. Alas, the deal may never come ...

    Sometimes it makes sense for a smartphone manufacturer to wait for a major trade show to debut its latest handsets – a show like IFA, which we'll be attending in early September. But not everyone's content to wait around for such an event, and even companies that have done so in years past – companies like Samsung with its Galaxy Note phablets – may be switching things up this year and introducing their new hardware well in advance of IFA. We just saw a rumor suggesting that other companies might follow along, and Sony could be doing a pre-IFA launch of its own. Is anyone actually ...

    We've been hearing all these reports that, strangely aren't conflicting -- you know, like reports usually do -- regarding an earlier-than-usual announcement from Samsung. Some claimed August 12, others agreed, while others suggest August 13, but, in any case, earlier than last year's (and the years before) IFA unveiling. August 13 is the Galaxy Note 5 launch date according to a report from the Korean media; said event would be allegedly held in New York, something we've heard previously, and said event would also bring us the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the larger version of Samsung's curved ...

    Sony unveiled the Xperia Z4 (Z3+) and called it a day, officially stating that the Xperia Z3 is still a flagship, but those hunting for specs can now upgrade to the new kid on the block. Its American version (slightly further upgraded), the Xperia Z4v, should be coming soon (how soon, we don't know) to Verizon, but, if this report is true, the company is preparing two high-end Sony smartphones. We should reportedly expect the Xperia S60 and Xperia S70 before IFA, according to the report, that cites information from retailers who can only share the fact that both of these upcoming high-end ...

    At a time when Google has major developments in the self-driving car concept, and pretty much owns the most popular mapping platform in the world, it's no surprise that automakers are worried over the company becoming a major competitor in the future. Google Maps may be free for consumers, but GPS tracking companies that use the service have to pay a pretty penny for the use of the maps. As a result, many automakers were inclined to use Nokia's HERE Maps as an alternative over the last couple of years for their vehicle navigation systems, and given Nokia's interest in selling, automakers ...

    The new Motorola Moto G has been one of the most leaked phones in recent memory, popping up in pic after pic as we look forward to Motorola's launch event next week. Recently, we've been seeing those leaks expand to cover some premature retailer listings, and shared one such posting with you overnight. But as shouldn't be too surprising when we've got an unannounced device like this, not everyone agrees on all the specifics, and this afternoon we're checking out yet another Moto G 2015 retailer page, this one painting a very different picture of the smartphone. Didn't love the Snapdragon ...

    The past few years have been rocky ones for some heavyweights in the SoC industry. It wasn't that long ago when NVIDIA was at the top of its game, and now its chips struggles to find homes. And more recently we've seen signs of trouble for Qualcomm, too, as controversy surrounds the Snapdragon 810 and companies like Samsung turn to in-house efforts for flagship handsets. With Qualcomm about to reveal its Q3 financial figures this week, new rumors suggest that the SoC-maker may be about to consider a big change to help improve its business outlook, splitting its operations as a maker of ...

    We only need to put up with 2015 Moto X and 2015 Moto G rumors, reports, and leaks, for about a week or so, as Motorola is holding a special event on July 28, where we will hopefully see both aforementioned phones, and maybe even a ruggedized version of the 2015 Moto X, dubbed the Moto X Sport. Until then, however, we take what we can get, and this report seems to unveil some 2015 Moto G specs. The information has been published on Spanish retailer FNAC's website, but still, we advise you to treat it with skepticism, despite matching some of the information from previous reports. We ...

    It would make a lot of sense for Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in the same color options as the Galaxy S6 Edge, just as it would equally make sense for the South Koreans to unveil special color options to make the larger version stand out. It doesn't really matter now, as we're just speculating, upon seeing these alleged stills purportedly representing a gold Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (or, sometimes referred to as the Galaxy S6+ Edge). The source of the report also published an alleged picture of the device revealing its specifications: Quad HD display (of yet unknown size, ...

    So far we've heard everything we want to know about Windows 10 Mobile through the Microsoft Insider program. In addition, we also hear of devices like the Cityman and Talkman in the works. What we've vaguely been able to see is the future of Windows 10 Mobile on tablets, and today we get details. A new Ramos Q7 7-inch tablet has just passed through the TENAA certification process, and even though this is not the fanciest tablet in the world, it shows that there will be such a thing as tablets running Windows 10 Mobile. Listend specifications mention 7-inch 720p screen of undisclosed ...

    Right now, Google's offering early access to Android M as a developer preview, and while those releases for Nexus hardware give us the opportunity to go hands-on with the software ahead of its broader launch later this year, they leave us with a few unanswered questions about how Android M will land. The one that gets speculated upon the most may be which dessert item ends up providing the final M-name, but just as big a mystery has been the version numbering Android M will finally take. While nothing's yet official, a compelling theory offers a pretty good guess at just where Android M ...

    The Apple Watch may surprise our expectations in some recent customer satisfaction surveys, but the amount of customers satisfied is also crucial. Apple has been reluctant to share information on how the product has sold over the last few months, and we even hear that Apple might not share exact data on tomorrow's quarter results conference call. It seems that investors are not too happy with this, and analysts are already chiming in the product's defense. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has just provided some insight over all the recent drama surrounding Apple Watch sales. He does ...

    As we mentioned a little earlier today when checking out one of the latest leaks of upcoming Motorola smartphone hardware, despite the Moto X being arguably the more exciting of the handsets we're looking forward to, the new Moto G has been positively dominating the leaks that have arrived to date. That continues to be true this afternoon, as we take a look at a couple pics of what's reportedly a new Moto G store dummy unit, one that gives us a peak at the phone's defenses against environmental onslaught. The existing Moto G, you may remember, offers water resistance, and while the ...

    Even with the evolution that we've seen with wearables over the last few years, it's still anybody's game. Many companies have speculated that the Apple Watch has outsold its competitors by significant margins over the last few years, and still we have no official data from Cupertino on the topic. If you're wondering how satisfied users are with their Apple Watch, we've got some surveys on the topic. Techpinions has just published a recent survey conducted to 800 Apple Watch owners, and the results claim to be better than what the first iPhone and iPad were able to receive. The Apple Watch ...

    Last week we saw ZTE introduce its Axon phone, a smartphone launch notable not just for the hardware it brought to market, but for the way the manufacturer went about doing so: rather then tackle US smartphone sales with some re-hash of an existing model, ZTE elected to give America its own phone, and a big part of its Axon launch was emphasizing the “designed in the US, for the US” aspect of it. That may well be true, but a recent entry over at China's TENAA (more or less the country's FCC) reveals that the nation sure appears to be getting its own edition of the Axon, and one that ...

    In just over a week, on July 28, Motorola's holding an event that all indications point to being its launch platform for new smartphone hardware - and specifically we're expecting to see the company introduce the new Moto X and new Moto G. Of the two, it's this year's Moto G that's found itself the star of the majority of recent Motorola leaks, including some recent hands-on pics, and we've been left with a pretty strong sense of what to expect from the smartphone. Today we add to all that unofficial info with some data from a much more formal source, while also getting new corroboration ...

    Companies making smartphones have lots of opportunities to help their handsets stand out from the pack, and we're well used to seeing brands deploy style cues that help make their phones easily recognizable, whether the woven back of a Motorola Droid or the bright polycarbonate of a Lumia handset. For Android OEMs, that ability for a company to give its phones a tell-tale look extends well beyond hardware, and the majority of manufacturers out there also outfit their phones with a customized user interface – their own Android skin. Some companies have been far more successful than others ...

    We've already seen a Galaxy Note 5 render (not the official one, though), aside from all the other rumors, leaks, and reports, and we have a strange feeling that we know almost everything about the phablet Samsung intends to reportedly unveil on August 12. We're certain this is not the case, as the South Korean company might have one or two aces left up its sleeve, but today we get the chance to look at another Galaxy Note 5 render, which is looking real good. Designed by CAD artist Ivo Marić, they show off a Galaxy Note 5 that, to nobody's surprise, looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy ...

    We know little about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, but we do know, from previous rumors, that it should be a tablet which has a design inspired by the Galaxy S6 (front and back), that it's been confirmed by UAProf files, that it should have a Super AMOLED screen, and Samsung should make it official sometime next week (on Monday, July 20, to be specific). Now, according to a different report, based on information from a different source, the Monday, July 20 date is being reconfirmed. And, not only that, but the report claims to have official press images of both models, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ...

    While the leaks just keep on coming and coming, we haven't so far seen anything concerning the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen. We've heard, however, some rumors (especially after seeing those recent cases leak, which revealed the bottom of the device with the flush S-Pen) that the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen would either be somehow automatically ejected via a software command, or could very well be spring-loaded, and the user would have to push it in to release. The image above claims to represent the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen, and, nonetheless, seems to match what we've previously seen in the leaks, with a ...

    The weekend leak frenzy continues, this time, with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, the device Samsung intends to reportedly unveil earlier than expected, on August 12; also a device that has been heavily leaked/was subject to lots of reports recently. A recent case leak raises some questions about the S-Pen, while showing off the bottom of the device, which seems to match previously leaked images, as well as a recent non-official render we've seen. The device you see above is allegedly a Galaxy Note 5 prototype; a mule, to be more specific (a device which often features final hardware ...

    If the source of the images you see attached to this post would still be available, we'd say this is just a regular rumor. Whenever a site, page, or content gets pulled (even if it's coincidental), questions get asked, and, most of the times, adds to the credibility of the story. This is the case we're looking at today, pun intended, as we're looking at some leaked images of what is claimed to be the case/shell of the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus. We heard that Apple might retire 16GB versions with the 6s models, so there's that to look forward to, and the pictures you see above and below. ...

    While we're eagerly waiting for additional information regarding Samsung's alleged earlier announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 -- with more and more reports coming in -- we have to admit that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has been somewhat neglected by the rumor mill recently. Don't worry, the upcoming phone is back in the headlines with this report from today that allegedly brings us a dummy of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus pictured in the stills above and below. If it wasn't for the Galaxy Note 4 in two of the four leaked Galaxy S6 Edge Plus dummy pictures, we'd be inclined, and nobody ...
