With the upcoming HTC event scheduled for March, in which the Taiwanese company plans to take the wraps off their One successor, rumors and leaks of the device have already begun to flood the internet. Even the photo above is from a previous leak. But according to the infamous Twitter account, @EVLEAKS, we may now know the name of the highly anticipated device. Forget HTC One+. Look for M8 to be called The All New One, in gray, silver, and gold. — @evleaks (@evleaks) February 18, 2014   Will it be the HTC Two, the ONE2, One+, apparently...

Shortly after Google announced the Nexus 5 and the new version of Android 4.4, aka KitKat, Motorola confirmed that several of their latest devices (including the Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx) would receive the update fairly soon. That’s great news for people who’ve purchased the Moto X and are still on Android 4.2.2, that means that Moto would skip over 4.3 and go right for the latest version of Android. With no release date given, nobody knew how long it may be before we’d see an update, but it’s...

If you’ve been patiently waiting for the Nexus 5 to become a reality, there is a new rumor that says Google may announce the new device and Android 4.4 today! Yes, today. According to the site GottaBeMobile, Google will make the announcements later today at 11 AM EST/8 AM PST. This new rumor isn’t that far fetched, as both October 31st and November 1st have been rumored release dates. Apparently, the device will be announced today and ship out tomorrow, with online orders possibly being accepted today too. The Nexus 5 could...

According to the latest Android Developer blog update (yesterday), it looks like some big changes are coming to Android’s SMS/MMS messaging system. On Android 4.4, only one app can receive the new SMS_DELIVER_ACTION intent, which the system broadcasts when a new SMS message arrives. Which app receives this broadcast is determined by which app the user has selected as the default SMS app in system settings. Likewise, only the default SMS app receives the new WAP_PUSH_DELIVER_ACTION intent when a new MMS arrives. Other apps that only...

The folks over at Engadget have gotten their hands on what they say is the new, upcoming G Flex, by LG. Not to be outdone by Samsung, LG has been working on their own “curved” smartphone, but unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Round, the G Flex will be curved horizontally, not vertically. I have to admit, I like this curvature more than Samsung’s, at least from a visual standpoint. The new G Flex will also feature a full 6-inch 1080p HD display, slightly larger than the Galaxy Round’s 5.7-inch screen. Unfortunately,...

It has been rumored for a while, that Samsung—as well as LG—will be introducing a new smartphone with a curved (and possibly flexible) display this month (October) or next. For the most part, when people heard the idea of a “curved” display, devices like the Nexus S or Galaxy Nexus came to mind, as they both featured a slight curve to their glass. But if a new leaked render from the infamous @EVLeaks is correct, the new Samsung Galaxy F (???) will actually curve side to side, not top to bottom. As you can see in the image...

According to new reports out of Taiwan, HTC  will be using Qualcomm’s old Snapdragon S4 Pro processor in its upcoming One Max phablet phone, which is due out this October. The S4 is still a quad-core processor, but will be clocked at just 1.7GHz, not above 2.0 like the Snapdragon 800. Depending on who you ask, you get a different story as to “why” HTC is using the older processor. Some believe that HTC has lost a bit of its swag and can’t obtain the number of processors because of a shortage and what Qualcomm...

Despite the fact that HTC one still hasn’t made the One Max official, images of the gigantic phone continue to surface in wake of a forthcoming announcement. The newest images come courtesy of the Chinese forum “Mobile01” and clearly show off what are the sharpest and most detailed images to date. One thing that you’ll notice immediately, is that this phone is BIG. The One Max’s display comes in at 5.9-inches, meaning the device’s body is even bigger.  For once, the back of the device is actually...

The Honami codenamed phone from Sony (aka, Xperia Z1) has been talked about for a while. The large smartphone has been teased as having a cutting edge, 20-megapixel camera, which is said to have a massive 1/2.3″ sensor, well above any competitor. The Honami, or Z1, is also said to be a tad thicker than the Xperia Z, which is mostly likely due to the fact that it’ll be stuffed with a massive 3,000 mAh battery. Thanks to the Chinese equivalent of the U.S.’s FCC, the Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (TENAA),...

The Galaxy Note III will be shown off in about a week at the annual IFA event in Berlin, but we’ve got our first look at the device’s front panel. Courtesy of Sonny Dickson and ETrade Supply, we can now see that the Note III will feature a 5.68-inch display, which is a slight boost over the Note II’s 5.5-inch screen. The Note III will also opt for a true HD 1080p display a much needed jump over of the Note II’s 720p display, due to the larger screen size. While full specs are in short supply, we also know that...
