Earlier this month an image surfaced of a smartphone headed for Verizon dubbed the HTC One Remix. At the time it was thought the device was really a renamed HTC One Mini 2. A new shot of the device has turned up thanks to tipster @evleaks. This time, the tweet indicates the device is the HTC One Mini 2, confirming the earlier suspicions.
No information is available yet regarding availability or pricing. HTC did indicate the HTC One Mini 2 would be available in the U.K. before the end of May.
We have already seen a leaked press render, but now we are seeing some live photographs of the Galaxy S 5 Active for AT&T. With this leak, we see the front and back of the handset. We also see the home screen, lock screen, boot animation, and the removable back panel exposing the battery. On the software front, there seem to have been no changes made. Hardware, though, has been altered for additional durability. After all, this is the Active version of the Galaxy S 5.
Last month Samsung started pushing the Android 4.4 update to international versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. U.S. customers have had to wait though while the update goes through the certification process with the different carriers. Sprint has completed that process and has started pushing the update out to owners of the device on their network.
As usual, the OTA update is being deployed in phases, so it may still be a few days before owners of the Galaxy Note II on Sprint receive a notification that the update is ready for their device. Users can go to Settings -> More tab -> System Update -> Update Samsung Software -> Check now or connect via Kies if they are impatient to see whether they have access to the update.
T-Mobile’s campaign of redefining the carrier industry continues with Un-carrier 5.0 on June 18 in Los Angeles. What can T-Mobile possibly reveal at this event? The only clue we get from the invite is “We don’t play it safe and sound,” which can only mean that AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless will be watching and hoping that T-Mobile doesn’t force them to re-think what they are doing yet again. Keep hoping guys!!
When HTC announced the HTC One (M8) earlier this year, they indicated they were putting in place a new policy to keep older devices updated for at least a two-year period. This meant their new Sense 6 UI layer would eventually rollout to owners of the HTC One (M7). In April HTC announced the update was being pushed out to carriers and should be certified for delivery before the end of May. Both T-Mobile and Verizon have already started rolling out the update over the past couple weeks. Now owners on the Sprint network can breath a sigh of relief as it is their turn to get the new version. » Read the rest
When Verizon decided to pick up the Motorola Moto G to offer to their customers, they decided to only make it available via one of their prepaid plans. If a 3G smartphone is sufficient for your needs and you are okay with Verizon, then you may want to jump on this latest deal from Amazon. They are offering the Moto G for only $70.
There is no indication how long this deal will be available, but a check of Verizon indicates you can still get it for a Friday delivery if you order by late Thursday afternoon. Hit the source link if you want to check out the offer or place an order.
Two carriers in the United States are preparing to add a new color to their Galaxy S 5 offering. Both AT&T and Sprint are going to add the Copper Gold version of this year’s Samsung flagship. Above you can see just how the device will look. Only thing different here is obviously the color. The front, which you can see after the break, also remains the same.
AT&T finally put our worries to sleep by announcing that it will be available starting June 6. You will be able to get it on AT&T Next 18 for $22.92 per month, Next 12 for $29.80 per month, or on a two-year contract for $199. They are also offering a $50 discount on the purchase of the blue or white ASUS two-pack tablet cover and Wireless Charging Folio and Duracell Wireless Charging Mat. That deal will end July 24. You can see a few quick videos along with the full presser after the break.
Yesterday’s big LG G3 announcement did lack a few details on pricing and availability, but we finally have a little more info for you. Clove in the UK has started pre-orders for the G3 at £499 for the 2GB RAM/16GB storage version, which is pretty darn good. However, shipments won’t start until July 1. You will have your choice of Metallic Black, Silk White, or Shine Gold. Who is jumping in?
