    One year ago, back at IFA 2013, Sony introduced two unusual smartphone accessories, a pair of relatively high-end cameras that attached to existing handsets (or even tablets), giving them the sort of large lenses and optical zoom capabilities normally reserved for stand-alone dedicated cameras: its QX10 and QX100 Cyber-shot lens-style cameras. The big, bulky add-ons clearly weren't for everyone, but we were still intrigued to see Sony innovating in a space like this; love them or hate them, there just weren't any other products quite like these out on the market. This year, we've been ...

    If you have a hard look at all the changes that come with iOS 8, it's clear that Apple has to launch a wearable along with it. Some of the newest reports claim that Apple will announce the iWatch on September 9 along with the iPhone, but most of the other sources claim that we might not see a launch until December. Some of the latest rumors now claim that we won't see an iWatch until 2015, and today's source explains why. Digitimes is reporting that the reason why the iWatch might not see the light of day until 2015 is because the device has barely entered its "engineer verification test" ...

    As we get closer to Apple's September 9 event, the amount of rumors surrounding the iPhone 6 only gets more intense. We've seen a ton of leaked parts of both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but we haven't really seen what these parts will look like once they're assembled. A Russian website has just taken the time to do all that dirty work for us, and the results are actually quite elegant. Russian YouTuber Rozetked has just filmed a full video of some leaked assembled parts of the iPhone 6 in order to give us a full glimpse of what the 4.7-inch variant will look like. You'll notice ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note line started as a bit of a test of the market. At the time, everyone was used to phones that we'd consider today as fairly small, so the idea of a 5.3-inch phone scared us – so much so, that we even invented the word "phablet" for it. It grew into a widely popular line, though, and launches of new models have since become staples of the IFA trade show. We're right on the eve of the announcement of the next in a line of fairly successful phones, so we decided to go through the long list of rumors we've heard about the phone and compile it all into one Samsung ...

    Sony should unveil its next flagship, believed to be the Sony Xperia Z3, at the upcoming IFA 2014 in Berlin. All the rumors and reports seem to agree on this, and the company itself has started teasing, however, without a specific mention of the phone itself. The picture above is allegedly one snapped off of a real-life unit, which seems to have a sheet glued to its back with the Xperia Z3 specs. While the accuracy and veracity of the picture itself can't be verified, the specs we're seeing seem credible enough. We're looking at a 5.2-inch 1080p TRILUMINOS display, quad-core Snapdragon ...

    Windows Phone 8.1 has already proven to bring Microsoft's mobile operating system to the level it needed in order to compete with other platforms. The updates that were added with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 brought even more needed features, but it's clear that Microsoft is not done. If you were wondering what the company has in store for GDR2, rumors have just arrived on the topic. Reports claim that Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 is going to bring support to 2K resolution on smartphone displays, and therefore providing support to new processors like the Snapdragon 805. Other hints claim that the ...

    Samsung has done a fantastic job at keeping us at the edge of our seats with the Galaxy Note 4 announcement at IFA. The company's recent advertisement focused on reminding us why the Galaxy Note lineup matters, and what we can expect for the future. One of the biggest upgrades that we're expecting to see with the Galaxy Note 4 is in its camera, and even though we still don't have any leaked Galaxy Note 4 samples, there are some that come close. Lenovo has just launched the Vibe Z2 in Asia, and if you're wondering why this has anything to do with the Galaxy Note 4, well, the answer will ...

    One of the biggest mysteries that surrounds Apple's September 9th event, is what to expect for the iPhone 6 phablet that's been rumored. Most of the leaks we've seen in both parts and mockups have been focused on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and that makes sense since it begun mass production a couple of weeks ago. It's hard to predict if Apple does have anything ready for September 9 when it comes to the 5.5-inch model, but new images and videos have might shed some light. Today we see a leaked video of what is supposed to be the back shell of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. It's hard to predict if this ...

    There have been a ton of conflicting rumors regarding Apple's launch of the iWatch. A couple of weeks ago the word on the street was that the product would be announced and launched in December along with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and new rumors from just a week ago claim that everything is going to be announced on September 9. Whatever the case may be, one of the biggest questions that's still left on the table is the price tag of Apple's wearable offerings, and some credible sources have just chimed in. Re/code was the source that claimed that Apple's iPhone 6 event would happen on ...

    It's happening. One of the best phones of 2013 is getting a refresh, and the whole tech world seems quite excited about it. With last year's Moto X, Motorola brought thinking that was way different than many of the other OEMs out there – it proved that phones didn't have to have top-tier specs and a boatload of software features in order to shine. It proved that a great phone doesn't have to look great on paper, so we're naturally looking forward to the successor to that product. The new Moto X (or perhaps the Moto X+1, as it may be called) is only a few days away, so we decided to ...

    Microsoft's IFA 2014 event is scheduled for this Thursday, when we expect to see the company debut the latest Lumia smartphones, including the 730/735 and 830. We've spotted this hardware before in numerous leaks, and Microsoft's early teasers sure seemed to reinforce that what we'd been hearing and seeing was on-point; its initial invite both alluded to the front-facing camera prowess rumored for the Lumia 730 and depicted the rear camera we know from Lumia 830 leaks. With only a few days to go until the announcement, Nokia and Microsoft have a new teaser out, and we're once again talking ...

    We're just days away from Samsung's Unpacked IFA event, where the Note 4 will take the stage to reveal itself before the waiting public. And to help make sure the crowd is suitably pumped-up, Samsung's been dropping Note 4 teaser video after Note 4 teaser video, going back more than a week now. At first they were very non-specific, just conjuring up memories of the Note line in general, but then the next wave of clips started mentioning the Note 4 by name. Yesterday, Samsung did one better, and in another stylus-focused video, depicts its iconic S Pen sliding into what we can only assume ...

    After a bit of a lull in Android One news following the project's formal announcement back at Google I/O a couple months back, rumors picked up again last week, delivering a little good news alongside some bad news. On the one hand, it sounded like India might be getting its first Android One hardware over a month ahead of schedule, but then we also heard that the phones might come in a bit north (or maybe even more than a “bit”) of that $100 target price. Confirmation may just be another couple weeks away, as we get word this morning of an upcoming Google event in India. Two weeks ...

    Motorola's upcoming product announcements are starting to feel like they're a done deal already. What hasn't been nearly confirmed by Motorola itself through some not-too-subtle-at-all invite imagery, we've been piecing together ourselves thanks to no shortage of rumors and leaks. Those leaks have really been stepping things up in recent days, helping to answer some of our outstanding questions about this hardware. But this morning we switch gears from hardware details to pricing info, spotting a couple of these Moto handsets revealing their worth to India's Zauba import database. This ...

    The new Moto X will be going official this week, but we're all still thirsty for information regarding the device. One thing we've thought was almost certain since the leak train started rolling in early April was the name: in one of the first leaks of the phone, the name "Moto X+1" was dropped, and in subsequent leaks it came up over and over again. Today, though, we're hearing new information, as the name may not be Moto X+1 at all. According to sources of Phandroid at Verizon, the company's internal computer system shows the device simply as "The new Moto X." This isn't all that ...
