We’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S 5 Active, but we’re finally getting a benchmark to confirm some of the specs. Like the S 4 Active, this device will share many specs with the original Galaxy S 5. There’s a 5.1, 1080p screen on board, as well as a 16 megapixel camera, but the processor will see a slight downgrade to a Snapdragon 800 instead of the 801 CPU found on the GS5. Not a huge difference, but it’s there.
There’s also 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, and Android 4.4.2 on board. The benchmark unfortunately can’t confirm just how waterproof and dust-resistant this device is, but considering the normal Galaxy S 5 boasts a bit of water resistance, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see Samsung make this thing extremely waterproof. An announcement shouldn’t be too far off.

We do know of one place that Samsung will release the Galaxy S 5 Prime: Korea. Now we also know what colors that handset will be wearing. On Twitter, @evleaks names “black, white, gold, blue, and sweet pink” as the available colors. That’s more colors than what the generic Galaxy S 5 launched with.
Still nothing on any possible launch in the United States, but the LG G3 could certainly be a filler.
At this point, The LG G3 is leaking like a sieve, so why not a few more images of the device? These pictures reveal the lock screen, which has nothing unusual, but you will notice that the circular time widget lines up perfectly with the leaked image of the Quick Cover case we showed you earlier today.
Now there really isn’t much left for LG to tell us about this device, but one thing that has been an uncertainty is the extra sensor on the back. Some thought it was an IR blaster, while others speculated it could be a heart rate monitor. Last week, a report indicated it could be a “laser beam” for night shots.
We have some information today regarding the Samsung SM-N910 (possibly a variant for the Galaxy Note 4, as the Galaxy Note 4 is the SM-N900).
We were already pretty sure that the phone would be coming to AT&T, but now we know it’ll be coming to Sprint, US Cellular, Verizon, T-Mobile and Bell Canada. All carriers should have the 32GB capacity available at launch.
Stay tuned, as there’s certainly more to come.

Xiaomi has officially announced a new television, the MI TV 2, after releasing its first smart TV last fall. This one proves to be a bit bigger (49 inches), and a really nice new feature — a 4K display — for only CN¥3,999 (equivalent to $640).
Android is built into the TV (MIUI TV skin) and side loading for other TV apps is simple. The 4K panel has 3D capabilities with a 6.2mm aluminum bezel. The processor is a quad-core MediaTek MStar 6A918 chip (clocked at 1.45 GHz), 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage and a microSD slot that can support up to 64GB.
Xiaomi now has a really nice tablet on the market, and it’s not just because of its awesome price.
Designed (and named) similarly to the iPad, the MiPad has a 7.9-inch display with 2048 x 1536 pixels (324 ppi). But the really nice news here is that it’s the first device to feature Nvidia’s Tegra K1 chip, clocked at 2.2 GHz, along with a 192-core Kepler GPU. RAM is set at 2GB, and you’ll have two internal storage options, 16 or 64 GB respectively, with a microSD slot that can handle up to 128 GB of expanded storage.
The rear camera is an 8MP Sony camera, and a 5MP camera in the front. The battery is pretty big — it’s a 6700 mAh LG battery. Stereo speakers are on the back of the device. Dimensions are 202.1 x 135.4 x 8.5 and weighs 360 grams.
Six color options will be available, and the price is CN¥1,499 ($240) for the 16GB Wi-Fi version, and CN¥1,699 ($270) for the 64GB Wi-Fi model.
A 3G or 4G model could be coming, but nothing has been announced yet. Release date is also unknown, but an open testing phase for developers will begin in June.

Earlier today the Wall Street Journal reported that according to JK Shin, the Galaxy S 5 is doing quite well. Samsung has sold 11 million units to date. However, that bigger news might be the fact that the Galaxy Tab S could be announced next month.
At the very end of the article, it was reported that Samsung is “planning to launch a new line of tablets for the first time in New York on June 12 at Madison Square Garden.” Madison Square Garden does seem like an interesting location since it holds nearly 20,000 people.
Now that the Moto G LTE has been officially unveiled by Motorola, Amazon has begun accepting pre-orders for the device after making an appearance on its website just a few days ago.
It’s seriously an awesome deal for only $220 off-contract. The only real thing that was holding me back from recommending the original Moto G to friends and family looking for a cheap, reliable but fast device was its lack of LTE. Now, that won’t be a problem.
The device will be available everywhere on June 3 for most carriers around the world — just check with yours before you go ahead and buy, if you’re not sure.
Yes, but what the hell is it? Unfortunately, we have nothing else to go by but the name. We know HTC is working on Mini and Prime versions of the One (M8), but I don’t think it’s either device.
As expected, leaked images related to the LG G3, scheduled to be officially announced on May 27th, continue to surface on a regular basis. The latest set of images is a nice one compared to some of what we have seen as they are press renders of the LG G3. This means they have pretty good clarity and detail. Notably, we get a really good look at the face of the device and what the bezels should look like. LG has made a mark as having thin bezels thanks to the LG G2, so many are interested to see what the size of the LG G3 will be like despite the 5.5-inch screen. Read more
