Photos of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Alpha have appeared giving us the best look yet, and it looks awfully familiar to another phone. I will give you three guesses and the first two don’t count. That’s right, you guessed it, it’s the iPhone. Did Samsung not learn their lesson from all the time and money spent in the courts?
As you can see, the white Galaxy Alpha has chamfered edges made from polished metal just like the iPhone. It also appears much smaller than the Galaxy S 5, which lines up with rumors that it will sport a 4.8-inch display, among other subpar specs.
On August 5, Lenovo is expected to announce the Vibe Z2 Pro. But that may not be the only handset the company announces on that date. The image above is claimed to be the Vibe Z2 Pro (left) alongside what is allegedly the Vibe Z2 Pro Mini. Being a true miniature version of the Vibe Z2 Pro, the handset on the right does have a smaller body that retains the same design.
The person posting the image on Weibo also included at least one part of its specifications. Although it is a mini, the Vibe Z2 Pro Mini is said to feature a 5-inch display. The larger Vibe Z2 Pro will boast a massive 6-inch display.

The leaks and rumors of Motorola’s upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch continue to flow, and we have more leaked pictures of the device for you today.
Hit the break for a full gallery.
Although an announcement and not a release date is expected on September 3, one carrier in Korea is wasting no time getting its hands on the Galaxy Note 4. Carrier LG U+ has a listing for the SM-N910 in its database already. This model number is presumably the Galaxy Note 4’s.
With a presence in the carrier’s database this early, it could mean that Samsung is going to be releasing the device soon after an announcement instead of waiting a month or so. This would confirm the rumors that Samsung wants to roll out the Galaxy Note 4 as soon as possible in an attempt to bring in consumers prior to Apple’s rumored iPhone arrives with a larger display.

Samsung used IFA in Berlin to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 last year. And today, a report from The Korea Times claims that Samsung will be using the same trade show to announce its successor. The specific date for the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 4 is September 3. Invites for the event are expected to be sent out soon considering that date is just about one month away.
The Galaxy Note 4 is believed to feature a massive 5.7-inch display that has a 2560×1440 resolution. Inside will be either the company’s own Exynos 5433 or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 (depending upon your market) paired with 3GB of RAM. Samsung is apparently pushing hard to release the handset as soon as possible due to the rumors that Apple will be upping the size of the iPhone’s display.

Google has been selling the Nexus 7 with some pretty sweet deals as of late in order to get rid of stock before the release of the Nexus 8 tablet.
Now, it turns out that Google’s completely out of stock of the non-LTE models, according to the device’s product page on Google Play.
OnePlus’ ‘One’ phone hit a few (okay, more than a few) bumps in the road since its initial launch. Production was an issue initially, then there were some OS/software issues, and now the company is looking to possibly drop its native CyanogenMod altogether.
But that doesn’t mean the company will stop forging ahead.
A new leak shows the “OneWatch” on an unpublished page of OnePlus’ website. Of course, you should take this with a grain of salt, as a previous leak from OnePlus regarding an upcoming tablet turned out to be false.
The OnePlus One has been a huge hit amongst Android fans since it was launched in May. With powerful specs, a manageable price, and the CyanogenMod ROM, it caters to every request the average Android user has. However, recently OnePlus has come up with some changes to this smash-hit formula: it will be replacing Cyanogen with it’s own ROM.
While the details are fuzzy, it seems that OnePlus is planning to cut ties with CyanogenMod in the future in favor of their own Chinese-oriented software. While most of OnePlus’ subscribers in America and Europe have an appreciation of CM, their Chinese-based fans will no doubt enjoy a ROM targeted more towards their tastes.
