Earlier in the day, an image of the Galaxy S 5 Google Play Edition leaked. And a little while after that the image above surfaced. The difference between the two is that this one lacks the onscreen buttons that were present earlier. Other than that, this is the exact same press render. And it is still the same Samsung device in terms of hardware, just running stock Android on the inside.

Although consumers in many parts of the world are still patiently waiting to get their hands on an LG G3, the company is not resting on the laurels thrown their way regarding the new smartphone. Like so many other manufacturers, they appear to be working on an upgraded version of their latest flagship, a device that has been dubbed the “LG G3 Prime” by the Internet.
The title says it all.
According to @evleaks, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will soon be getting a Google Play Edition model in addition to the regular carrier models.
Of course this means stock Android with the awesome flagship specs of the S5, something many users are drooling over. Not to say that the S5 is the best of the best in specs right now, but it’s close.
Pricing, availability and release date are not yet known.
Android 4.4.4 wasn’t a major update, but there were some decently-sized bug fixes involved. Nonetheless, users are wondering when their devices will finally receive the update — those with the Google Play Edition Moto G can now stop wondering.
The 4.4.4 update is now pushing out to the phone, so if you have one, you can either wait for it to hit your device or flash it yourself. The download mirror to the software’s file is in the source link.
Samsung’s Galaxy Mega 2 has broken cover a few times, so everyone knows that the sequel to that enormous Galaxy Mega is definitely happening. However, thanks to the latest benchmark scores from a rumored Galaxy Mega 2, we know what kind of hardware the phablet will have whenever it does launch.
The benchmark says the Mega 2 will have a 5.9-inch, 720p screen, down from the 6.3-inch screen on the Galaxy Mega that we saw in the US last year. Other specs include a quad-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal space, an 8 megapixel rear camera and an impressive 5 megapixel front-facing camera. Nothing to brag about, but it’s shaping up to be a solid device.
The original Galaxy Mega is starting to show its age, so it shouldn’t be too much longer until Samsung officially takes the wraps off of this year’s iteration.

When Android L was announced, HTC stepped forward and proclaimed it would have the update ready within 90 days of availability. But the company’s flagship phone is currently two updates behind the latest version of Android that is available. Next month, though, HTC plans on updating the One (M8) directly to Android 4.4.4 with August being the latest time scheduled. The One (M7) is also targeted for the same release window. The leaked schedule, which you can enlarge by clicking above, shows that HTC is considering skipping Android 4.4.3 all together for the One (M8).
Other devices slated to receive Android 4.4.4 include One Dual SIM, One Mini 2, and One E8. They are currently being tested with the update and could receive it in August-September.
Samsung likes to push features from its flagship devices to other phones in its lineup to keep customers happy — and more importantly, coming back.
To continue the trend, the international Galaxy Note 3 (SM-9005) is about to receive an update (OTA) which brings version 2.0 of KNOX, Samsung’s mobile security platform, Kids Mode and Download Booster.
The LG Vu brand undoubtedly includes some of the worst smartphones of all time. The design is just downright horrible due to the 4:3 aspect ratio. And not to mention they performed horribly. It seems that LG has learned its lesson and will be replacing the Vu brand. The new brand’s alleged name? G Stylus. There are no images or details available, but it is pretty safe to say LG will be implementing a stylus.

What do you think of this color?
