We already knew that HTC was working on the “ultimate selfie phone,” because it has entered the testing phases at AT&T.
But now according to a tweet from @upleaks, the device will also be headed to Verizon, T-Mobile US and Sprint.
We could also see the device going to carriers in both Europe and Asia as well. It’s a given that the phone will offer a better selfie experience than both the HTC One (M8) and the HTC Desire 816, but we’re not sure on any of the specifics. Stay tuned for more on this device, which we’ll surely hear more about in the coming weeks.
We had originally thought the HTC One M8 Prime was cancelled (or at least postponed), but according to a new leak by @HTCFamily_RU, the phone is alive and kickin’.
Pictured next to the One M8, it’s clearly a bit bigger, matching its previously leaked specs:
One owner of the LG G3 was curious to see if his handset’s bootloader would ever be unlocked. LG has responded to his request by confirming that they are indeed working on a solution to allow owners of its flagship to do so. While an estimated time of arrival was not given, it is good to know that there is something on the way. The company did clarify that it may take some time due to technical restrictions, security issues, and carrier policies. But LG is “sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment” felt by G3 owners.
Hit the break to read LG kind answer to the request.
The LG G3 S, the little brother to the G3, has been renamed as the G3 Beat in Asia. But on Sprint, it’ll go by the “LG G3 Vigor.”
This is all according to a new leaked image from Sprint’s “Getting Started” guide for the new phone.
Well there you have it folks, the long-awaited Moto X+1 finally has an official launch date — on Verizon, at least.
The device will be available from Big Red on September 25. There’s a chance that other carriers get the device before Verizon, but we expect that Verizon gets the X+1 around the same time as the other carriers.
A Moto 360 launch date has not been revealed, but it would make sense for it to be the same day as the X+1. Keep checking back for more, but that’s all we have on the Moto X+1 for now.

A company can’t just announce one thing at an event, right? Right. Although Samsung is widely expected announce the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3, the company is reportedly going to debut another smartwatch. This one, though, will be very capable. Yonhap News is claiming that the Gear Solo will feature a SIM card slot that will allow it to place calls thanks to its own connection. Since Android Wear does not yet support SIM cards, the Gear Solo will presumably be backed by Tizen.

A couple foreign news sites recently managed to get their hands on a new device from Pantech. The company appears to be ready to enter the market to compete in the large smartphone category, especially the stylus-equipped segment, with the Pop Up Note. The first thing one may notice about the device is the craftsmanship and premium look. According to the hands on reports, the feel of the device matches the looks.
From a hardware standpoint, the Pop Up Note is just a half step behind most flagships hitting the market this year. It comes equipped with a 5.5-inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and a 13 MP rear-facing camera. It does come equipped with a microSD slot, but can only accommodate an additional 16 GB of storage.
With the official release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 bearing down on us at the beginning of September, information about the specs for Samsung’s latest flagship continue to surface. The latest comes from a ZDNet Korea source that says Samsung has definitely agreed to produce some versions of the Galaxy Note 4 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip. This would be in addition to a version equipped with the Eynos 5433 processor that appears to be the more powerful of the two versions.
Samsung agreeing to produce two versions of a device, one with an in-house chip and one with a third-party sourced chip, is normal for the company. It is unclear whether Samsung had planned to follow their historical precedent all along though as the source indicates Qualcomm had to agree to a steep discount on the chips in order to get Samsung to agree to use them. Reports indicate this move has upset LG which is a big buyer of Qualcomm Snapdragon chips and think they should be able to get a similar discount.
Last month, it was revealed that the upcoming DROID phones will sport the Snapdragon 801, so we kind of knew the new Moto X+1 would as well. In case you needed further confirmation, a Geekbench benchmark reveals the XT1097 with the 801 in question.
Rumors of an HTC-made Nexus 8 have been circulating for a while now, but we have some juicy details for you. If these leaked specs are true, this will be the tablet of the year.
The Nexus 8 is codenamed T1, and it’s expected to sport an 8.9-inch (2560 x 1600) display, a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra chip, 4 GB of RAM, 8 MP rear camera, 1.6 MP front-facing camera, and optional LTE. How is that for some serious power?
