As is the case with many devices, leaks and rumors leave little left to be desired when the time comes for a company to make an announcement.

While Motorola’s upcoming flagship, the Moto X+1, is generating a lot of buzz as of late, it looks like a successor to the Moto G is starting to make appearances as well. About a week ago we shared a photo of the device in the wild, and today we have what appears to be the rear panel for the upcoming budget device (or possibly its smaller brother the Moto E).
According to a leaked AT&T manual, LG’s G Vista phone will be headed to the carrier, alongside Verizon.
In the picture above, which was taken from the manual, you can clearly see AT&T’s logo right on the back of the device.
Team Win posted its official custom recovery for both the Samsung Gear Live and the LG G Watch today, giving users the ability to add customer ROMs to the devices.

It was only a few months ago when we thought the Nexus program was dead.
But then came rumors of Volantis, HTC’s codenamed 9-inch Nexus tablet to be released alongside Android L this fall.
Since we hadn’t heard much regarding a new Nexus phone to come out this fall, we were perplexed, but assumed that a new phone would not be coming. Until now.
Carriers in the United States are notorious for loading new devices with bloatware. Bloatware, for those unaware, includes the pesky applications that carriers have installed to greet users right out of the box. Unless you root the device, it is almost impossible to ditch any type of bloatware. Verizon, surprisingly, wants to change and is offering a way to remove bloatware. Read more
Whenever a hardware manufacturer has a device receiving certification with the FCC, everyone raises a brow. The latest FCC filing that has surfaced belongs to Samsung. The Galaxy Mega 2 is believed to be the device in question with this filing. The model number for this filing is SM-G750A, which indicates it is likely the AT&T version, and the size of the display is 5.9 inches.
In a selfie posted to his Weibo account, Vice President of The Lenovo Group, Arthur Wei, revealed the back of the Lenovo K920, now known to be called the Vibe Z2 Pro.
