HP is looking to continue its success in the low-end tablet market as the company prepares to release a $99 tablet to be sold at Walmart for back-to-school sales.
The device is reportedly being built by Chinese company BYD, will have a 7-inch display, and a single-core Medfield processor. Nothing else is known about the device at this point, but we do know that if all of this is true, this will be a nice addition to the list of the low-end tablets available on the market. We’ll just have to wait and see…
A few pictures of the upcoming LG G2 smartphone have leaked, which show the phone in a variety of colors, including red, blue, pink, and grey. The pictures do look a bit suspect, so take it with a grain of salt. I am willing to be an awful lot that these are cases and not actual color options of the phone.
So far, here are the confirmed specs that we do know about for the device:
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Chipset at 2.3Ghz, a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS Display, 13MP camera with Optical image stabilization technology, Dual Speakers, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Smart DMB supported(Digital multimedia broadcasting for South Korea), LTE-Advanced Supported, Physical Navigation Buttons are not present on front side, Built-in Wireless charging, and a 2610mAh battery. Check out the full image after the break.
Since it’s rumored to be an all plastic body, we don’t expect the HTC Zara to be anything more than a budget device. Based on these specs, it’s safe to say that the Sprint-bound phone has budget written all over it. The display size is large, at 4.7-inches, but the resolution is only qHD (960 x 540). You can expect a 1.4GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 1 GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot for expanded storage, a 1.6Mpx UltraPixel camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Sense 5.0, and Android 4.2.2.
We probably won’t see this puppy until the 4th quarter, but I’m in no rush.
The impending release of LG’s new flagship, the G2, has been getting a lot of attention recently, and for a lot of good reasons. It’s expected to feature top-of-the-line specs, and include the latest software. We do know that the G2 will most likely be announced at LG’s press event in NYC on August 7, but when will it be released?
We’re still in the dark on that one, but a Korean tech site has a pretty good idea…
In early August, the G2 will most likely be released in Korea, probably very soon after the phone’s announcement in NYC. A North American release will come next in September, with Europe following shortly after. On a global scale, the smartphone should be available in October.
None of these (non-specific) dates are confirmed by LG, but it does sound legitimate and would make perfect sense that the phone would come out at the aforementioned times. We’ll see soon enough on August 7.
With each new Nexus comes at least one new Wallpaper. The image above is the new default on the new Nexus 7 that will be announced later today. There also seems to be two other new ones as well (pictured below). You can download either one of these separately, by clicking or tapping on either image to get the full size. Then, if you’re on a desktop, right click and click save as. Or, if you’re on your phone or tablet, long press, and tap “save as”. We also have the link below for the full zip file that includes all the wallpapers on the new Nexus 7.
We got a good idea of what the Moto X is going to offer from the DROID announcement today, but it looks like the Moto X might have a few more tricks up its sleeve. Motorola Connect (pictured above) allows you to send and receive text messages from a computer with a Chrome Extension.
Another one is Lost Phone Tracking, which is something we haven’t seen as a built in app from other manufacturers.
We have a few more details on the rumored Oppo Find 7 device that confirm a few things we’d heard about the device before, and some more details that make it much more enticing. The Find 7 is the successor the Find 5 and is aiming to be an extremely high end device for Chinese consumers. The device will sport a Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 GB of RAM, both of which are becoming the de facto standard of flagship phones recently, as well as a 1080p 5-inch screen. The biggest feature of the device, though, is a gigantic 4,000 mAh battery stuffed in it. That type of battery combined with Qualcomm’s excellent, efficient processors means this device should be able to keep itself powered for way longer than what we’re used to in phones.
The device is slated for a Chinese release at $699.

If you need a little Moto X leak fix today, you are in luck as a new four minute long video of the device has surfaced thanks to a Vietnamese web site. Given all of the leaked renders and other images, there probably is not a whole lot of new information available in the video. Still, you can get a good look at the hardware itself, including several details, along with the operation of the device. Check it out below.
New pictures alleging to be of the forthcoming Sony Honami have surfaced and give us some of the best views yet of the device. We see in this latest set of images that the body of the device has been tinted black. Unlike the HTC One that puts the speakers on the front of the device, the Honami has a large speaker in the bottom edge of the unit. In the last render that we saw, we could tell there were several buttons on the right-hand edge of the device. These new images appear to show a physical camera button dominating the left side of the device consistent with some images discovered at the end of June.
We are expecting the Moto X to be available on all four major U.S. carriers, but there seems to be a hiccup with T-Mobile. For whatever reason they haven’t inked a deal with Motorola to carry the device. It could be because they carry the Nexus 4, but I am not sure why that would really be an issue. Right now the rumored unsubsidized price is $299, just like the Nexus 4. To be honest, I expect the actual price to be lower.
The Moto X should be at Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint sometime in August. There is still time for T-Mobile, but it remains to be seen.
