    HTC's “double exposure” event this week is shaping up to bring us an interesting mix of knowns and unknowns; while on one hand we've had the benefit of numerous teasers, leaks, and rumors to help prime us for what to expect, there's still a fair amount of uncertainty regarding the hardware that will ultimately be on display. The RE Camera accessory looks like a given, and we're feeling better and better about our chances of seeing that Desire Eye, but will that be it? Despite the “double” in the event's title, there could easily be additional hardware on the menu, and one such ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Alpha lineup has proven to be one of the oddest products of the year. While we do praise the company for boosting the quality of its hardware with these devices, we still can't understand why the company has decided to pull back from including some flagship specs. If you thought the Galaxy Alpha was alone in Samsung's plans, the recent leaks of the Galaxy A5 prove things differently, and it seems the new iterations are close to a launch. Today we find the first leaked press renders of the Samsung Galaxy A5. Once press renders begin to emerge, a device could be just a ...

    Motorola's Moto 360 isn't just the first round-faced Android Wear smartwatch to hit the market, it's also one that's already been taking early strides to make itself more attractive, picking up some enhanced battery life thanks to a recent software update. But it won't be the only circular player on the scene for long, with LG's own G Watch R set to give it some new competition. We had already heard that G Watch R sales could begin later this month on October 14, but a new report claims that LG's not content to wait even that much longer, and sales should be getting underway tomorrow. ...

    The LG G Flex is still regarded as one of the most interesting innovations of our time. By interesting we're not really calling it the best one, as many of us were disappointed by the quality of the display, but other technologies like the self-healing coating did make some positive headlines. We're still waiting to see what LG is planning for this product's future, and today we get some hints on what to expect. LG has just visited the USPTO with some new trademarks, and these all seem to be focused on the future names for the G Flex. The patent names were G Flex Frame, G Frame, and F ...

    HTC's New York event is just days away, when we're expecting to see the company confirm this so-called Desire Eye we've been hearing so much about in recent weeks. If the renders that surfaced last week are any indication, this handset could have a front-facing camera to put most other smartphones to shame, with not just a flash and a 13MP sensor, but a big, light-catching lens, as well. Over the weekend, some new pics of the Desire Eye started making the rounds, giving us a look at the phone's entire body and pointing out some new features. While that last leak showed us the phone's top ...

    Just over a month ago, Samsung revealed its Gear VR head-mounted display accessory for the Galaxy Note 4 at its pre-IFA Unpacked event. The headset, designed with help from Oculus VR, was announced without a ton of details concerning how it would go up for sale. We quickly picked up on a possible $200 price tag, but still lacked a timetable any more precise than that of a release planned before the year was out. But now as we move further into October, new leaks are arriving with new release details, and the one we're checking out today suggests plans to start selling the Gear VR on ...

    For the past week or so, our Nexus-device attention has been directed at the Motorola-made Nexus 6, with more and more imagery of the unreleased Android leaking online. And while we are very excited to pick up more information on that handset, it's not the only upcoming Nexus model we've been following. Last month also brought us a fair share of rumors concerning an HTC Nexus 9 tablet, which could also be preparing to launch in just a few more weeks. Today we've got a double dose of Nexus 9 news for you, taking a look at what sure seem to be the tablet's FCC paperwork, while also getting a ...

    What do you pay for streaming music? If you said “ten dollars a month,” you're not alone. From Spotify to Google Play All Access, Rdio to Beats Music, that ten dollar price point is easily one of the most popular. But with other services coming in even cheaper, it can be increasingly tricky to stay competitive at that level. That's why one of these players may be planning to significantly cut its rates, but just which one we're talking about may be a little surprising. A new report claims that Apple is working to turn Beats Music from a ten-dollar-a-month service to a more affordable ...

    When is Apple going to introduce its next iPad(s)? Ever since last month's iPhone event, we've been craving launch info on the next additions to Apple's tablet family, and so far we've heard a couple ideas. One date that was floated a couple weeks back was October 21, but that hasn't nicely aligned with subsequent rumors – after all, there's been talk that iOS 8.1 (with Apple Pay support) could arrive on October 20, and it would be weird to see that come in advance of the iPad launch. But luckily for us, now we've got a new date to consider, and it's one that makes a lot more sense in ...

    If there's one thing it seems really difficult to accuse Google of, it's not giving users enough ways to communicate with each other. We've got Google Mail, Voice, Hangouts (above), and Google+, not to mention self-publishing tools like Blogger. With all these options, it almost seems ridiculous to think about adding new ones, but that very well may be what Google's up to right now, as rumors suggest that it's putting together a new platform for instant messaging. The big difference compared to existing offerings, especially in light of pressure these past few years to get everyone on ...

    The last time we heard about the upcoming HTC phone, tentatively named "Eye", was with the occasion of a report that claimed it will sport a 13MP DuoCamera setup. At that time we thought this was no big deal, as the Butterfly 2 already ditched the "four-megapixel UltraPixel" DuoCamera in favor of a 13MP DuoCamera setup. The report was also not in line with previous rumors that claimed the "Eye" would be a "selfie-phone". Today's leak sheds some light on the matter, however, don't forget to grab your pinch of salt. For starters, we're not looking at the HTC One M8 Eye, but rather at the HTC ...

    Later this month, Oppo is set to introduce the world to its N3 Android smartphone. The company's been teasing the still-unlaunched device like crazy, most recently talking about the two different builds it will be offering for the model, each featuring a different metal construction. While we know that much, we still don't have a good sense for what the phone will look like, and much of that uncertainty has come from Oppo's plans for the handset's camera. Now a new render has arrived to offer a possible camera design, and it's one hell of an unusual one. Remember, the Oppo N1 had that ...

    This past year's been a huge one for Cyanogen Inc., seeing not just the formal incorporation of the company, but its involvement in the release of new Android hardware, like the OnePlus One, or its dealings with Oppo (as with the N1, above). Will the next year bring similarly big things to Cyanogen's table? Well, it sure looks like interest in the company is higher than ever, as we get word of a new round of funding and reports of Google interest in a possible acquisition. Cyanogen's said to be going after investors now, seeking an ultimate market valuation up around the one billion dollar ...

    Leaks concerning the Motorola-made Nexus 6 have seriously been on the upswing over the past week or two, and just yesterday we had the opportunity to get one of our best looks at the handset yet, spotted out getting some real-world testing. So while our general questions about this handset's existence may be fading under the mountain of evidence that continues to arrive, plenty of specifics have remained unclear. One of those important details concerns availability; sure, Google may start selling the Nexus 6 in just a couple more weeks, but once it does, what carriers will you be able to ...

    Alongside its new iPhone and smartwatch hardware launches last month, Apple also introduced users to a new service it was getting ready to kick off, announcing Apple Pay. Intimately tied to the NFC support present on those new iPhones, Apple Pay is set to go active sometime this month, after not being quite ready for prime time when iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales first began. But now that October's here, when exactly can we hope to see Apple flip the switch on Apple Pay and welcome iPhone users into the world of mobile payments? According to some sources, we're a little under three weeks out, ...
