    We're just hours away from HTC's “double exposure” event, with the festivities getting underway at 4pm Eastern. We've heard plenty of theories about what hardware the manufacturer could be getting ready to introduce, but the one sure bet seems to be the HTC RE Camera. After all, HTC dropped a teaser video revealing that RE Camera name, and some poking around the corresponding RE Camera website revealed some imagery that appeared to be the camera accessory itself, a little snorkle-looking guy. As we get ready to see HTC make the RE Camera official, we've got one more last-minute leak to ...

    We're just hours away from HTC's next big event, but one of the company's most anticipated new products isn't one we expect to see at this “double exposure” gathering: the Nexus 9 tablet. Evidence for the tablet's existence has been arriving at unprecedented level in recent weeks, most recently as a picture of the slate itself leaked. But for all we have managed to see, the tablet has remained an unconfirmed rumor. That may finally be changing, as we hear a report that an HTC exec has supposedly verified the manufacturer's plans for the Nexus 9. HTC's Jack Tong, president of HTC North ...

    The rise of smartphones and tablets may have brought powerful computing to more users than ever before, placed a new focus on software usability, and is leading us into an even more-connected future than anything we've known in the past. And while those are all largely positive evolutionary steps, not everything's been so rosy. The step away from windowed software to an everything-fullscreen UI has almost felt like turning back the clock thirty years, to the days of clunky hacks trying to shoehorn multitasking into DOS. But slowly, the idea of a multi-window mobile app environment seems to ...

    Apple is well known for testing all sorts of prototypes, well ahead of a possible launch of any. We've been seeing the design of the iPhone  6 leaked all over the place since the time of the iPhone 4s launch, even though it took the company 3 generations to make it possible. In the same fashion, we've been hearing about a possible 12.9-inch iPad in the works for a more professional crowd, and new rumors point to how Apple plans to pull it off. Supply chain sources claim that Apple is testing two 12.9-inch iPad models, both running different operating systems. On one, we have one iPad ...

    Google's next Nexus phone feels like it's so close we can almost touch it. Leaks of the Nexus 6 have been getting bigger and better in recent weeks, and as we approach the Nexus 5's first birthday, all eyes are on Google to see when it plans to go public with what's looking like it will be the first Nexus phablet. As smartphone fans know, one key step on the road to a handset's release is it getting its FCC certification – that's why so many eyes today are turning to a new set of FCC docs from Motorola. Are they really for the Nexus 6, though, or could there be another explanation. The ...

    Just yesterday we were checking out the latest leaks surrounding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy A-series, the descendents of the also-still-new Galaxy Alpha, and we had the opportunity to check out a new render of the Galaxy A5. At the time we noted that it sure seemed like this phone was getting ready to launch in the near future, and today we're picking up a better sense of just when that might be, with a new source talking about A5 availability, as well as some A7 hardware specs. Supposedly, Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy A5 (and, we assume, the A3 and A7) sometime later this ...

    Android Wear as a platform may still be in its infancy, but it's already attracting a growing number of interested manufacturers. From those early days of LG and Motorola we've already seen Samsung hop on board, and IFA last month brought ASUS into the fold with its ZenWatch. We were optimistic that the ZenWatch would become the extreme budget-priced alternative to $200+ Android Wear models, but pricing info available at launch didn't really seem to back that up. Would the situation change before sales of the watch began? We're finding ourselves cautiously optimistic as we pick up some new ...

    It's hardly a surprise that Samsung is hard at work at yet another phone, but we're always excited to see every last one of the devices the OEM puts out. The latest looks to be a continuation of the Galaxy Alpha line of metal-trimmed smartphones, the Galaxy A5. We just saw press renders leak of it earlier today, and now we have our hands all over a Samsung Galaxy A5 benchmark, revealing a 64-bit processor and more. There's supposedly a 4.8-inch 720p display, contrary to what we heard earlier about a 5-inch screen. The benchmark also divulges the inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 ...

    We're expecting big iPad news from Apple in an October event, with the exact date standing at October 16 based on the rumor mill (if previously-reliable sources are to be trusted). With the fact that we're closing in on that date, it's only natural that we start seeing the pace of the rumor mill pick up. And that's exactly what we've got with a new report from The Michael Report (no, not that Michael), which states that the next-gen iPad Air 2 will supposedly take the designation "world's thinnest tablet," as well as drop the 16GB storage capacity. Supposedly, there'll be a 0.5mm ...

    With all the hype that Apple has been able to create around the Apple Watch, the only thing that's left for the company to achieve is to be able to start selling it. The last time that Apple took six months between a product announcement and a launch was with the original iPhone in 2007, so there is a significant amount of pressure on Cupertino's shoulders. If you're wondering exactly when we should expect the product to reach the market, we've heard a couple of rumors here and there, and today we get some extra confirmation. Analysts have already begun to predict that we shouldn't expect ...

    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 ...
