    In case you haven't noticed, it really looks like Motorola is getting wild this year. Apart from the rumors surrounding the new Moto X and G iterations, leaks of new Verizon Droids and the Nexus X have also been fairly bountiful. But news out of left field has hit us today, as Motorola may have teamed up with Verizon to create the Moto Luge, and launch day may be just later this week. According to a source of TK Tech News at Best Buy, this phone will be "specifically marketed to Verizon Prepaid customers," and there's support baked-in for Verizon's newly switched-on prepaid LTE ...

    Sony looks to be preparing for a blockbuster IFA event this year, with reported plans for the Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3 Compact, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, and a new smartwatch – and that's just on the mobile side of things. Now we're hearing more confirmation of the latter two, as both the Sony tablet and smartwatch have allegedly been caught in a leaked promo pic. The picture shows off the tablet, which is expected to have an 8-inch size (a first for this Sony line of tablets), along with a new smartwatch. They are both shown near what appears to be a pool, so it's quite possible ...

    Rumors have been flying that Motorola has been chosen to make the next Nexus iteration, and most (if not all) called the phone the Nexus 6 – it's the sixth Nexus phone to be made, and it's also rumored to have a 5.9-inch screen size. Today we're seeing a report that looks to partially shoot down these earlier rumors, as the Motorola Nexus X name leaks for the first time. According to unacknowledged sources of PhoneArena, the phone will be named Motorola Nexus X (as we said earlier), and it will allegedly have the Motorola model number XT1100. This leads us to think the earlier report ...

    One of the longest-standing rumors about the Moto X+1, popping up right around the same time we saw evidence for the phone's name, has concerned the sort of customization options that would be available through Moto Maker. Supposedly we'd see the return of wooden backplates, which sounded nice, but word was we'd also be able to choose from a few leather options. That leather idea returned in subsequent rumors, but we've yet to see any firm confirmation. We're still not quite there yet, but today brings us at least some new circumstantial evidence, as a retialer appears to confirm the ...

    Not quite sold on the idea of virtual reality? Especially when we're talking about a headset that's basically just a frame for your smartphone? Samsung's Gear VR is far from the most conventional-sounding smartphone accessory we've ever heard of, but the way it's shaping up with this close partnership between Samsung and Oculus VR, we're preparing ourselves to be soundly impressed. Leaks have already revealed some of the Gear VR software, and earlier this month we got to see what sure seemed like it might be the hardware itself. Now some new pics attempt to clue us in to how the finished ...

    We're looking forward to a ton of hardware launches about to get underway, not just at IFA itself in early September, but also at other events taking place in the same general timeframe: Motorola's Chicago event, or maybe even that rumored Apple event a few days later. But then there are also new devices we're expecting that aren't yet attached to any particular launch event – stuff like the new Nexus phone and tablet. Heck, knowing Google there might not be any big to-do at all, and it could simply reveal the hardware in a blog post. But however that happens, we're starting to close in ...

    Samsung has been pumping out smartwatches at a feverish pace, and in the past year alone we've seen the release of the Galaxy Gear, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, Gear Fit, and most recently the Gear Live. We're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the inaugural Galaxy Gear's launch, and with Samsung's IFA 2014 Unpacked event scheduled for less than two weeks from now, will we see the debut of a new wearable? That's sounding like a distinct possibility, as we hear about Samsung's work towards a possible Gear 3. The first big change from the Gear 2, at least according to our source familiar with ...

    One of the most hotly anticipated phones of the year will be announced on September 4, and because that date is so close, it's only natural that we see more and more leaks as we get closer to launch date. Today we're taking a look at a bombshell of a leak, of what is expected to be the Moto X+1. Learn what these Moto X+1 renders look to confirm. First of all, we can see the front facing speakers on both the black and white fronts. Apart from that, there's not much more about the front: there's a Google Now Launcher-esque launcher, and plenty of things pointing to these renders being of ...

    Microsoft hasn't necessarily enjoyed much success with the launch of Windows 8, and the same can be said about its spinoff to Windows RT. Windows Phone 8 has seen some moderate success though, but it's clear that the company is desperate for a positive change in its results. For some, the smartest thing to do would be to start over, that's exactly what Microsoft plans to do under Nadella's administration. Sources close to Microsoft claim that the company is preparing to announce its next version of Windows in an event on September 30th. At the moment, both the date and the name for this ...

    Nokia's first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, launched last fall, and we quickly saw carriers in the States lining up to offer the 2520 to their subscribers – well, at least AT&T and Verizon were interested. A whole lot of time has passed since then, and we've seen plenty of other Windows tablets emerge, but the 2520's still managed to hold on to a bit of the spotlight, and early last month @evleaks posted a T-Mobile document that sure seemed to reveal that the carrier was planning to belatedly welcome the 2520 to its collection of tablets. This week we get to check out additional ...

    The Internet is flooded with leaks of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, be it in mockups, or in photos of some parts here and there, but it's extremely rare to find 5.5-inch iPhone 6 leaks. There is some sense to this, as rumors claim that only the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is being manufactured at the moment, and with the 5.5-inch model starting production until later this year. Still, Apple is known for being unpredictable every now and then, and new leaks claim that there is progress with the 5.5-inch model. New leaked photos show us the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 rear shell being compared against its 4.7-inch ...

    Apple's reluctance to adopt expandable storage on its iPhone lineup makes choosing the right iPhone a little dramatic. The 16GB iPhone is priced accordingly with other competing smartphones, but choosing more storage means an incredible price bump, and we all know surviving with 16GB of storage is not realistic. One of our biggest concerns is how Apple will approach its storage options for the iPhone 6, and today we get some interesting data about it. GeekBar has been in charge of a ton of iPhone 6 rumors lately, though some of these have been questionable. Today this source has revealed ...

    Back in February, just a few days before we saw Samsung officially unveil the Galaxy S5 at MWC 2014, we were still neck-deep in rumor territory, and one of those late-stage theories we heard suggested that the GS5 would debut with some sort of unusual camera control. Rather than having a physical shutter button, this so-called “Side Touch” system would employ touch sensors, but we never ended up seeing anything come of the claim. Now a similar rumor is back, claiming that Side Touch will instead debut on the Galaxy Note 4. The description of Side Touch is the same as before – it ...

    Will HTC make a big showing at IFA this year? This week's launch of the One M8 for Windows (not to mention the Butterfly 2), with IFA so nearby, might be seen as HTC subtly rejecting the idea of using the expo as a venue for introducing new hardware, but we wouldn't be so sure. At least, the Verizon launch exclusivity puts a US focus on the phone that might not fly so well at IFA. But if not this new Windows Phone model, then what might IFA get from the OEM? A not-so-subtle teaser just been released by one of HTC's social media accounts may have answers, seeming to reveal a new Desire 820. ...

    What does Motorola have coming up next in its device pipeline? We've got the X+1 and G2 expected for the company's early September event, rumors of a new Nexus model, and most recently word of a possible return to tablets. But if we keep focused on just phones, exactly how many are we looking at? A new rumor attempts to nail-down Motorola's plans for the remainder of the year, naming eight smartphones expected to make their debut. We've got the Moto X+1 and G2 (though that name's still up in the air), as well as that Shamu Nexus. Then there's the Moto S, recently rumored to be an early ...
