Big Red already offers the Charcoal Black and Shimmer White colors, as do most other carriers, but some have held off on the other offerings.

samsung_galaxy_s_5_gold_att_sprint_leak

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.

Possible unannounced Motorola flagship with 5-inch+ display spotted in the wild

motorola_flagship_in_the_wild_leak

Are we looking at the Moto X+1 or some other Motorola device? The image above was obtained by @evleaks thanks to a tip and shows an alleged Motorola handset roaming around in Chicago (where the company is based). The user is seemingly running stock Android and Google+ is the app running here.

The description for the device’s display was 5 inches or more. If more, there is a chance this is that 6.3-inch Motorola device. But right now, all signs point to the Moto X+1 having the company’s focus. Motorola used last summer to launch the Moto X, and they are doing the same this year.

Official HTC One (M8) Ace specifications appear

htc_one_ace_specs_photos_leak

The longer it takes for HTC to announce the One (M8) Ace, the more leaks that will surface. However, this one could render all others useless. What seems to be promotional material for the device to be put on a website has leaked. We’re looking at a device very similar to the HTC One (M8), but there are of course some differences.

On the outside, HTC kept the Boomsound stereo speakers. The construction of the One (M8) Ace, though, is a plastic unibody rather than aluminum. On the inside is, again, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz. Since HTC did not include Duo Camera system, the back camera has been bumped up to 13MP. The front facing camera remains 5MP.

The HTC One (M8) Ace is expected to be announced on June and be available in red, white, blue, and black.

Asus releases teaser video for “The Next Incredible Thing”

ASUS_Logo_From_MeMO_Pad_10

Asus will be at Computex 2014 next week, so they’ve released a short teaser video to build up some hype for whatever it is that they’ll be announcing. The short clip is simply someone writing out “The Next Incredible Thing” on a piece of paper, and the G at the end of the sentence disappears at the end of the video. So, whatever Asus has planned, it’s going to be incredible, it’s going to be a thing, and it’s also going to be thin. Awesome.

We’ve seen a few Asus leaks recently, including some new ZenFone models, so it’s hard to tell exactly what thin device Asus is excited about. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too much longer to find out. If you’re interested, you can check out the short video below.

LG’s G Watch could feature cellular connectivity

g-watch-tnn

Compared to what we’ve seen from the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, most other wearable devices have looked pretty underwhelming, namely the LG G Watch, which is going to be made out of plastic, and as previous rumors suggest, won’t have top-line specs.

But new information suggests we could be in for quite a surprise with the G Watch. Hit the break for more.

Antutu

The new Galaxy Tab S tablets will be announced on June 12, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get information on the devices beforehand. The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (SM-T700, WiFi) has appeared online in an AnTuTu benchmark test.

Here’s what the test results revealed: a 2500 x 1600 AMOLED display, octa-core Exynos 5420 processor and Mali-T628 graphics, 3GB RAM, 8MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera, 32GB internal storage and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

More details to come on the new Tab S series, so stay tuned.

Walnut backing for Moto X replaced by Rosewood on Moto Maker

Moto X Rosewood

Back when the ‘natural wood’ backs for the Moto X were announced, the options included rosewood, teak, ebony and bamboo. However when Moto Maker was launched, rosewood was nowhere in sight, and walnut was an option instead.

But today if you visit Moto Maker you won’t find the walnut option — you’ll find rosewood it its place. The only question is, is the rosewood any different from walnut?

LG G3 for Sprint press render leaks in two colors

sprint_lg_g3_leak_titanium

Near the end of last week, we had a look at the Verizon version of the LG G3. With that version, the carrier added some heavy branding along with an alteration to the front panel. Today’s leak of the LG G3 for Sprint shows no changes whatsoever.

As far as I can tell, the only thing indicating this is Sprint would be the LTE icon. That is nowhere near as intrusive as Verizon’s branding. Also, Sprint did not change the entire front panel to be black. Instead, the bottom of it will be identical to the back panel. So it seems that the carrier-manufacturer war is nonexistent here. Although, we are going to assume there will be bloatware.

Hit the break to see the gold variant.

Samsung testing Android 4.4.3 while working on rolling out Android 4.4.2 to some devices

samsung_KTU70_schedule_leak

If you are not an owner of this year’s Galaxy S 5 or even last year’s Galaxy S 4, just know that Samsung does still care about you. While an alleged schedule claims that the aforementioned devices are currently being tested for Android 4.4.3, a multitude of Samsung handsets are nearing an update to Android 4.4.2.

All of the devices prepping for Android 4.4.2 are pegged for the update in either May or June. Some have already gotten the update and others are waiting in the testing stage. Only one device, the Galaxy S III, does not have an estimated time of arrival. This is not the LTE variant, though.

Hit the break to see the full Android 4.4.2 update schedule for Samsung devices.

Latest leak still puts HTC One (M8) Ace release next week

htc_one_m8_ace_leak

We have already had one leak indicate HTC is planning to release a new smartphone on June 3rd, a phone that many believe will be the HTC One (M8) Ace. A new source out of China indicates the June 3rd date is good for the Chinese market where the device is expected to sell for 3,000 yuan ($481 USD). Based on previously leaked information, the lower price makes sense as the Ace is expected to be a plastic-bodied version of the HTC One (M8).

Besides the downgrade in materials used for the body, the Ace is also expected to get a normal 13MP camera and not HTC’s duo camera system. Otherwise, specs are the same for the two devices. Beyond the date for the Chinese market release, no other information has been revealed yet regarding which markets HTC hopes to bring the device to.
