LG G3 press renders show up giving excellent look at new device

lg_g3_press_render_01

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

HTC One M8 Mini to leave out key Sense 6 features including Zoe, Pan 360, Motion Launch and Fitbit

HTC One M8 mini

We’ve heard plenty already about HTC’s upcoming One M8 Mini, the little brother to its latest flagship device. But today we’re hearing a bit more, and it isn’t the most encouraging news.

It looks as though the phone will be sold without some of Sense 6’s most useful features, including Zoe, Fitbit, Motion Launch, and Pan 360 photos.

The reason for these features being left out can be pointed directly to the lack of the Snapdragon 801 processor and the duo camera, both featured on the One M8. It does seem a bit odd, though, that Pan 360 and Zoe are being left out, because HTC has included the features on past devices without a duo camera or the Snapdragon 801. It’s all still rumored, so we’ll just have to wait and see to be sure.

Specs for upcoming Oppo N1 Mini leak, Oppo N2 rumored to be in development

oppo_logo_720

Oppo is certainly more of an “underground” OEM when it comes to the major brands like Samsung, LG, Apple, Motorola, HTC, etc., but that doesn’t mean the company can’t roll with the big boys.

Last September, Oppo unveiled the N1, a device that was both beautiful, inside and out. The specs were top-notch, and the phone featured a 13MP camera that can be rotated 206 degrees — a truly revolutionary design. However, the device’s time has come and gone, as Oppo has moved on with another flagship, the Find 7 — another stunning device.

But the company isn’t going to forget about the N1 just yet. The N1 Mini, a little brother to the company’s September flagship, is coming soon, and we now have some specs to share…

Google Maps receives update in UK, now offers data on all trains, buses, trams and ferries

Maps Britain

Public transportation in the UK just got a whole lot easier thanks to Google Maps’ latest update.

In an impressive move, the app now can access all times and routes for every train, bus, tram and ferry in the region — almost 17,000 different routes.

Google Maps’ project manager, David Tattersall, said, “You’ll now know when the next trip is departing, how many stops and how far your walk is between each station. You can also pick your preferred method of travel and whether you’d rather walk less or make fewer transfers, so you can compare and choose the best option for you.”

Galaxy S 5 Prime may retail for $880 at launch

Samsung_Galaxy_S_5_Back_Camera_Samsung_Logo_01

The Galaxy S 5 Prime is one of the most anticipated devices this year, and although we’ve heard a ton of rumors about specs, build materials, and even the launch date, we haven’t really heard much about pricing. Well, according to the latest leak, Samsung is planning on launching the S 5 Prime exclusively in Korea (at first) for KRW 900,000, which converts to about $880 in American money. Unlocked smartphones are typically expensive, but even compared to other devices, that’s pricey.

Obviously, the device will drop in cost as it becomes more widely available, but if you want to get one of these right at launch, you’re going to pay quite a bit of money for the device itself, as well as the cost of shipping and importing it from Korea.

Samsung’s ‘Glass Gear’ could be unveiled in September, run Tizen

Samsung_Logo_02_TA_CES_2014

Samsung has always been known to have its presence felt in many categories. One that it has yet to enter is smart glasses. Right now, there are really no standouts until Google finally releases the consumer version of Glass. Everyone isn’t just going to sit and wait. It looks like Samsung’s could be announced later this year.

Like we previously heard, it sounds like the wearable will be announced at IFA 2014 in September. This is the same event that Samsung used to announce the Galaxy Note 3. The device would be known as Samsung Glass Gear and it would not run Android Wear. Instead, Samsung would be putting Tizen to work. This should be of no surprise as Samsung’s Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit also run Tizen.

Motorola Moto G LTE gets listed on Amazon

moto_g_lte_amazon

We all know what is coming in less than six hours. The Moto E will be announced by Motorola in London, but there is something else they have ready to go. It now looks like a Moto G with LTE connectivity will be unveiled as well.

On Amazon, the Moto G with ‘Universal LTE’ in black and in white is listed next to the usual Moto G. When selecting the new LTE model, the link leads to nowhere. So right now we do not have a price or firm release date. However, we will find out soon enough.
