    Those who have stuck with Turing for the long run have been waiting on final shipping dates. Forget the fact that the company switched out a secured version of Android for Sailfish OS or even the fact this Turing Phone has "liquid metal" or whatever, you've waited nearly a year for this device with good money sunk into it, you're going to get it. Well, you probably got an email from Turing today with a tacit acknowledgment that it blew another vague shipping deadline. But the interesting news here is that the company gave a specific date for when the boxes start flying out of the door: ...

    Saygus had the uberphone of 2015 at CES — both at last year's show and this year's. After a two-month lapse in tweets, Saygus confirmed its CES 2016 projection that shipping will begin within Q1 — another setback from internal sentiment as a February shipping target didn't account for Chinese factories taking off for the upcoming new year. The Utah-based manufacturer hopes to show off version 3 of its PCB for the Sundance Film Festival in Park City starting January 21. The company had parted ways with an ODM on policy differences in November, characterizing as "a partner who may ...

    OnePlus has been anything but shy regarding sharing details about the company's inaugural smartphone, the OnePlus One. For the past month or so, spec after spec has been confirmed, and OnePlus is nearly ready to formally introduce the phone, with a launch scheduled for April 23. As the days count down until then, the company is filling in the few cracks that remained in our understanding of the phone's hardware, today discussing its SoC and RAM configuration. You might remember, the One was first tipped to get a Snapdragon 801, before OnePlus announced that it was going with the older 800 ...

    Smartphone fans in Southeast Asia seem to have it pretty good: not only do they get access to dozens upon dozens of models not otherwise released in the West, but often they'll end up with enhanced versions of the smartphones we get over here. Look no further than last year's Galaxy S 4, which after showing up in the US with its Snapdragon 600 SoC, became available in South Korea with a Snapdragon 800, poised to tackle new LTE-A networks. As it turns out, the new HTC One (M8) is no exception to this phenomenon, and the phone as it will arrive in Asia will run a slightly better SoC than the ...

    For the past few weeks now, OnePlus has been filling us in on some of the specifics behind its upcoming CyanogenMod-running One smartphone. A lot of that has sounded really good, like the swappable backplates made of a variety of interesting materials, or the 13-megapixel Sony Exmor camera. Really, if there's just one spec we were a little less than impressed with, it was the decision to go with a Snapdragon 800 SoC. Granted, the 800 is still an absolutely fantastic chip, but it's also last year's design – and if we're talking about a 2014 flagship, we'd sure like to see a slightly more ...

    "Out of all the Android tablets we saw last year, one of our favorites was the Sony Tablet Z - and now we get to see its successor, the Xperia Tablet Z2." Jaime Rivera is spot on with his intro to this hands-on video: the Tablet Z wowed us when we reviewed it last year, its thin waterproof chassis raising the bar for tablet hardware quality - but its smallish battery and sometimes-sluggish software impaired an otherwise excellent experience. With the Xperia Tablet Z2, Sony (presumably) aims to fix some of those shortcomings. Its front-firing speakers, Snapdragon 801 processor, and 3GB of ...

    Sony just debuted a handful of new Xperia models, and while reading up on the changes, one detail might have caught your eye: both the Z2 and Z2 Tablet run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 SoC. The 800 we're well familiar with from recent flagships, and last fall we saw Qualcomm announce the 805, but what's all this 801 business? Qualcomm officially announced the 801 at the MWC this morning, but it turns out that this is one chip we've already had on our radar. Let's back up for a moment: the Snapdragon 800 so many of us know and love is Qualcomm's MSM8974 – and specifically, the MSM8974-AA ...
