We already know of the five confirmed smartphones Lenovo plans on showcasing at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 event. Now, coming by way of a tip provided to GSMArena, a sixth phone will be added to that total.
This device will be the Vibe Max in the phablet category of smartphones.
Twitter poster @LlabTooFeR is giving us yet another HTC One (M9) wallpaper. This brings the total amount of leaked M9 wallpapers to five.
You can see the new wallpaper after the break. I’ll also include the links to the other four at the bottom.
While we wait for Samsung to make their 2015 flagship official on March 1st, we can still snoop around to try to figure out what’s going to be inside the Galaxy S 6 ahead of time. Originally, rumors pointed at the device using a 20 megapixel camera, but now it’s looking like Samsung will go with a 16 megapixel Sony IMX240 sensor.
March 1st is about 2 weeks away in which HTC themselves already confirmed will be the debut of the HTC One (M9). Now today they are being more riddle-like.
Today’s tweet states, “Something HUGE is coming from HTC. Imagine [number][big thing] in space. And then [math term] that by [number]. #Madlib”
Today, benchmarks belonging to two unannounced HTC devices appeared online. The benchmarks, uploaded to CompuBench, expose what is presumably the One (M9) and One (M9) Plus. Both are shaping up to be rather impressive devices, but, to no surprise, the Plus model has the edge. The primary difference between the two seems to be with the display. While the One (M9) has a 5-inch display with 1920×1080 resolution, the One (M9) Plus raises that to 2560×1440 on a 5.1-inch screen.
Hit the break for more.
It was only a few days ago that we found out that Samsung was working on a second generation Galaxy Tab S range of tablets with the model numbers SM-T710 and SM-T810. A couple of days after that, it was leaked that the new models would be thinner than the Apple iPad Air 2. Now, we have the full specifications of both Galaxy Tab S 2 models, courtesy of Sammobile.
A few hours ago we learned that Sony may exit both the smartphone and television markets in a bid to return the Japanese tech company back to profitability. While the Sony CEO, Kazuo Hirai, said that he would not “rule out considering an exit strategy”, this would not be a quick process if Sony were indeed to quit making smartphones. In the meantime though, a new Sony smartphone has been seen being put through its paces at both the GeekBench and GFXBench sites. The details of which are below.
While most other manufacturers are busy getting their flagship devices ready for Android Lollipop, Motorola is prepping its first generation Moto G for the update. Some users with the 8 GB, 3G-only Canadian model have been notified about the Android 5.0.2 upgrade, so while that’s being limited to a very small selection of devices, it does mean that a bigger rollout is on its way.
This soak test brings devices up to Android 5.0.2, skipping 5.0.1. The incremental update really only affected tablets, but at least you’ll be able to say you’ve got the latest and greatest on your Moto G when it hits. At least until Google takes the wraps off of Android 5.1, anyway.
We’ve seen some rumors on Android 5.1 already, and now we’re getting hints from Mo Versi, HTC’s vice president of product management, that the update is on its way.
After being prodded by a Twitter follower on when a bug in the Google Play Edition of the One M7 would be fixed, Versi responded by tweeting, “It’ll be tied to Google’s next MR, which is in March. Thanks.”
This could be hinting at the forthcoming Android 5.1, and it’s nice to have a bit more information from a more reliable source. Of course, the tweet’s content is open for debate and leaves room for interpretation, but this tidbit is what we’ve got to work with for now.
The LG Watch Urbane, the all-metal, all-luxury big brother of the G Watch R, was announced earlier this week, but without pricing and availability details.
Today, a product page on MobileFun.com appears to have some more information on the forthcoming smartwatch.
While an availability date is not yet announced, the site lists the Watch Urbane for $368.99 and is currently accepting pre-orders.
We’ll get you more on the device as a release date nears, but this is all that’s known for now.
