After yesterday’s mock-ups of the purported Nexus X, we’re seeing a blurry look at the front of the device with the screen on. These photos show a massive device with an “About Phone” section that suggests it is a device code named Shamu running Android L. Aside from that, there’s unfortunately not a whole lot to glean from the pictures.
The device is clearly pretty large when you notice how small the navigation buttons are relative to the rest of the screen, but it’s tough to pin down the exact size of the device. At this point, we’re still assuming the 5.92-inch display that was leaked yesterday, but until Google or Motorola makes something official, that’s the best we can do.
A device expected to be the Galaxy A7 has arrived in India for testing. Indian shipping site Zauba has located a device with the model number SM-A700FD. This Samsung device is going to be launched in select markets featuring a metal design with a modest price. The suggested retail price is somewhere between $450 and $500.
Since Oppo first teased its brand new flagship, the N3, we’ve seen a number of leaks come out showcasing the new cooling system, hinting at a new design and even suggesting the phone will come in an aerospace grade metal body. Well the company has come out and confirmed the aerospace metal in a new teaser on its Facebook page. The photo also makes mention of a stainless steel body for those who prefer a little heft (and possibly less out of their wallet) to their phone.
The Nexus 6 (or Nexus X) leaked last night looking like a Moto X 2014 on steroids, and now we have another image. This one is no render though. It’s the real deal and it’s next to the LG G3, which all of sudden looks rather small.
I am still trying to figure out why Google is doing this. The Nexus is a niche device as it is. With a 5.92-inch display, it now becomes a niche of a niche device.
What do you guys think?
When HTC first teased its Double Exposure event there was a question as to what the Taiwanese company would be showcasing. As we continue to move toward the Oct. 8 event we’re seeing more leaks showing off the GoPro-style camera HTC is rumored to be debuting. Well thanks to a reddit post we’re getting an OK look at what that camera looks like.
We’ve heard tons of rumors and stories about Google’s next Nexus phone, including the possibility of it being called the Nexus X as opposed to the Nexus 6. The latest leak of the device actually shows us what the phone will look like, so we’re finally getting a close inspection of what Google and Motorola have been working on.
The Nexus X looks extremely similar to the Moto X 2014, especially from the backside. However, this device is packing a 5.92-inch screen, which is considerably larger than the new Moto X and what we were originally expecting from the Nexus X. To compensate for the larger screen size, the volume rocker on the side of the device has been moved below the power buttom, so hopefully using this massive device won’t be too difficult. The rest of the phone’s design, like the SIM card tray, headphone jack, etc. are all just like the new Moto X.
If recent leaks and rumors are anything to go by, Samsung is gearing up to take the wraps off its ‘A series‘ of Android-powered smartphones within the next 6 days, and the latest news suggests that all three handsets are set to feature LTE connectivity.
When it comes to mobile devices, LG has been trying to be the next Samsung for sometime now. However, there is one area that LG has been lacking and that is processors. Samsung has the Exynos, which is as powerful as they come.
It has been rumored that LG was developing their own processor called, “Odin.” In fact, it showed up in benchmarks late last year.
We’ve seen a few leaks of the upcoming Oppo N3, and details are slowing trickling in. The latest information is that the body will be built out of aerospace grade metal.
What the hell does that exactly mean? It could be made from either stainless, nickel steel, or titanium. We know they will be shooting for lightweight so don’t expect anything too crazy or expensive. Maybe a lightweight alloy? Could this just be a marketing gimmick?
It’s that time of the year when the new DROIDs usually get launched, and this year is no exception. We expect the DROID Turbo to get introduced next month, and we have some images and details courtesy of HelloMotoHK.
Baring the model number of XT1254, the DROID Turbo (shown with last year’s DROID MAXX) will unsurprisingly sport a Kevlar unibody along with capacitive buttons on the front. Since the all new Moto X sports a dual LED flash, you can expect that on the DROID Turbo as well. Just like last year’s DROID MAXX, the new Turbo will also sport wireless charging. We presume the Qi standard again. Since the new Moto X has stereo speakers at the front of the device, the Turbo should get the same treatment as well.
