LG G2 poses with the Galaxy S 4 and looks awfully familiar


Now that the full press image of the LG G2 leaked, why not a shot alongside the Galaxy S 4? That’s exactly what we have here. LG isn’t pulling any punches as to what fan base they are going after because they look awfully familiar don’t they? Other than the screen size and the main home button on the GS4, I’m not sure the average person would know the difference.

I have never been a big fan of LG, but I am looking forward to the event and playing with the G2. Stay tuned for more coverage. One more pic of their backsides after the break.

Press image of LG G2 leaked a day before official launch

lg_g2@evleaks is at it again. This time the noted leaker is showing us the clearest picture of the LG G2 yet. The twitter account tweeted a press photo of the G2, with the caption “LG G2, 2013.” The image matches up well with all of the leaks we’ve seen to this point, with the volume buttons on the rear of the device, a minimal front bezel, and on-screen buttons.

Stay tuned, we’ll have all of the official info for you tomorrow.

Possible Key Lime Pie build spotted on Nexus 7 and Nexus 4 devices


Over in Google’s Chromium bug tracker, an entry has shown up suggesting Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie may already be running on some Nexus devices. The entry is included in a bug report regarding a notification the developers wanted to remove when a user is logging in to Chrome. In verifying the issue has been addressed, several devices are listed which have been tested and are working as intended. Even though the new Nexus 7 comes with the latest, greatest Android build, 4.3, the entries for the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4 report the Android build number is KRS36B. For the other devices, a trio of Samsung units, the build numbers all start with the familiar letter J associated with Jelly Bean builds.

Could the build number starting with a K be an indication that Key Lime Pie is already running on devices within the halls of Google as a test platform for other apps or is this just a typo?

Verizon exclusive Blue HTC One leaks


With Verizon’s seemingly evasive HTC One launch imminent, their exclusive blue color HTC One has leaked and looks rather nice. The color texture looks great as it’s more of a matte blue color which should look awesome paired with the aluminum body structure of the device.

What do you guys think of this color feature?

Images of Oppo N-Lens N1 appear, could be the best camera-phone ever


We haven’t heard much about the upcoming Oppo N-Lens N1 phone, but it could end up being the next best thing to come to market in the camera-phone industry.

Pictures of the phone recently leaked, which suggest that the phone will come with Xenon flash and a 13-MP camera powered by an “Owl” image chip which contributes to better low-light shots.

The phone is expected to sell in China for $480 off-contract, which is pretty expensive for a Chinese phone. There aren’t too many other details about the phone, but you’ll certainly hear it from us when they come around.

Back image of Galaxy Note 3 leaks, shows battery and dual-SIM for Chinese variant


It feels as though we’ve heard everything about the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 phablet already including benchmarks, internals, camera samples, full prototype images, and even a rumored September 4 unveiling date.

Now, it looks like we have another picture on our hands, this time of the back of the device, showing off its battery and two-SIM slots. (It’s the Chinese variant.)

It’s hard to make out the battery capacity in the picture, however when considering the battery capacity on the first two Notes and the hardware that will be included in the Note 3, it would make sense to see a battery capacity of about 3,500mAh. Time will tell, but we pretty much already know that this phone is going to be an absolute beast.

We could see 128GB of internal phone storage in 2014 with ‘stacked’ V-NAND memory


Say goodbye to the days of having to decide on whether you want to purchase the 16 or 32 GB model of your device.

The same technology from the “stacked” 3D chips found in Intel’s new Haswell processors could be found in flash memory modules in flagship mobile phones by 2014, according to Samsung. The company has already stacked 24 ‘NAND’ modules on top of one another, which makes memory faster (and larger) than ever before experienced on a mobile device.

V-NAND chips start with 128 GB of memory and can go all the way up to 1 TB. The question of whether a phone has a micro-SD card slot will never be asked again!

You’re probably thinking that we’re years off from this reaching mobile phones— think again. Samsung has already sent out the technology to mobile phone makers to sample it, and reportedly is already prepared to produce them in mass quantities.

The V-NAND chips will most likely be found in SSD memory later this year, and will eventually make its way to the mobile device world by 2014. Sometimes we forget how fast technology is moving… Check out the presser after the break.

LG may roll out LG G2 on August 8th in South Korea


As the smartphone market prepares for the release of another flagship device, this time LG’s G2 smartphone, we have another example of how manufacturers are compressing the time between announcement and availability. LG will be holding an event in New York City tomorrow to unveil the new LG G2. Reports from Korean-based MK News indicate the new device will be in stores in that country on August 8th, only one day after the official reveal. That is consistent with previous rumors about the release schedule that put Korean availability soon after the phone was announced by LG.

According to reports, LG is planning to make the device available on 100 carriers worldwide within two to three months of the official release. This will supposedly include four major carriers in the U.S. – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.

TalkAndroid will be on the ground at the LG event tomorrow, so be sure to check back for all the details about LG’s new flagship device.

HTC One Max (T6) leaks again, this time showing off its masculinity

HTC-One-Max-leak-03Yesterday we got a chance to see the HTC One Max (T6) up close for the first time. If that wasn’t enough for you, we have another image, this time giving us a better idea of its size. Sitting on top of the Max is the Motorola XT882, which has a 4-inch display. The Max’s 5.9-inch display makes the Moto device look like a little toy doesn’t it?

You will also notice what appears to be a switch on the upper left side of the Max. Word on the street is that this is a release for the back cover. Could the Max have a removable battery?

LG G2 will come with improved Quadbeat 2 headphones




On the heels of the LG G2 launch we are expecting later this week, we’re learning that the device will come with new and improved headphones in the box. Called the Quadbeat 2, they are going to be a step up from the original Quadbeat that come with the Optimus G and G Pro. Bass will be deeper, beats will be more natural, and peak sounds will be better managed, with less distortion. We’ll get to see them for real in just a few days.
