A few days ago, OnePlus sent out invitations to an exclusive event it’s holding in Beijing, China, on Thursday, May 28, to introduce its brand new operating system, hydrogenOS.
However, it looks like the Chinese manufacturer may also be gearing up to unveil a little something extra at the press conference if a set of images, which surfaced online earlier today, allegedly showcasing the packaging of a new product are anything to go by.
Yesterday we got our first look at the Galaxy S6 Active via a leaked photo of the device. Now just in case you’re thinking it was fake, check out this press image that leaked earlier today.
Earlier this year, it was said that Huawei was in the running to make the next Nexus smartphone. This device was said to be sporting a 5.7 inch display. Subsequent reports mentioned that this was only one of the two Nexus devices that Google was looking to launch with the second one made by LG. Read more
Following up on his earlier leak saying that Sony, LG, HTC and Apple were sending the Xperia Z4, G Pad X 8.3, Desire 826 and iPad Mini 4 respectively, to Verizon, @evleaks has posted a picture of the alleged LG G Pad X 8.3, as seen above.
Riding on the buzz generated by their new LG G4 flagship smartphone, the manufacturer is rumored to be preparing a smaller version of the device for the mid-range market. A new listing in a Vodafone database for the Hungarian market appears to confirm this is the case. Although a previous listing on a Dutch site showed the device as the LG G4C, the Vodafone listing has it as the LG G4 Mini.
Sources indicate the LG G4 Mini will sport a 5-inch display, possibly only running at a 720p resolution, and will be powered by a Snapdragon 615 processor. The device is expected to be available this summer, possibly as soon as June in some markets.
The listing has since been taken down by Vodafone.
We’ve been hearing rumours that HTC is working on its own range of tablets ever since the Taiwanese company was chosen to manufacture the Nexus 9. Thanks to a leak posted on Twitter, we can ascertain that one of the tablets being developed brandishes the ‘H7‘ code-name. Read more
The next generation Moto 360 has likely just passed through official Bluetooth certification, which might indicate that we’ll see the successor to Motorola’s rounded smartwatch relatively soon.
The device has a model number of BTMW03, which is extremely similar to the Moto 360’s BTMW01 model. The certification also mentions that it’s an Android product, so that rules out any type of Bluetooth speaker, headset, or other accessory. It either has to be the new 360, or something completely out of left field that no one’s expecting. The former is a safer bet. Read more
Four devices, some unannounced at this time, were name-dropped by Evan Blass on Twitter with Verizon being among their destinations. The companies sending their devices to Big Red include Sony, LG, HTC, and Apple.
Sources in China claim to know some of the specs for the forthcoming Huawei Mate 8 smartphone, successor to last year’s Huawei Mate 7. If accurate, Huawei appears to have a nice device coming to market that will be highlighted by a bezelless 2K resolution display ensconced in the same metal frame design as the Mate 7. Read more
Samsung has been working on some new tablets to be released in June to be the successors to the Galaxy Tab S devices. The new devices are expected to be named the Galaxy Tab S2 and will come in both 8-inch and 9.7-inch sizes with both WiFi-only and WiFi+cellular variants. A new leak from Twitter tipster @OnLeaks claims to reveal an image of the larger, 9.7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S2. Read more
