Continuing with their “Ready to Note?” theme for the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event, the company has released four new videos, joining one released a couple days ago, highlighting how customers use their Note devices. Each video is a “Love Note” with a different user describing how they have used their Note devices and the kind of impact it has had on their life.
You can check out each of the videos after the break.
LG’s G Watch is less than two weeks old but that isn’t stopping LG from releasing their next wearable to the world, the G Watch R. A couple days ago the Korean tech giant released a teaser video to build hype and today they’ve posted the above image to their Facebook account. The similarities to the upcoming Moto 360 are obvious, including a round display and a single button on the side of the device. However, LG is the only company so far to release a smartwatch with a completely circular display (the bottom portion of the Moto 360 serves as a touchpad).
Screenshots of the upcoming Nexus 9 has leaked online revealing that it is going to be pretty darn powerful. According to one of the screenshots, it will back a 64-bit Tegra K1. This could very well be the first tablet to sport the SoC. The Shield Tablet features the Tegra K1, but it’s only the 32-bit version.
NVIDIA unveiled the 64-bit version a couple of weeks ago. This chip sports the same 192-core Keplar architecture-based GPU in the 32-bit version, but it’s paired with NVIDIA’s own 64-bit, dual core “Project Denver” CPU. It also supports up to 8 GB of RAM.
The latest device announced by HTC is the Desire 510. Since launching the HTC One (M8) earlier this year, the company has opted to release some devices for the low-end and mid-range markets. The Desire 510 is another one of those devices with low-end specifications. While there are certainly some low points to the Desire 510, there is one part of it inside that stands out.
With a strategy that seems to be the opposite of Huawei’s, Archos have unveiled some upcoming devices less than two weeks before the hotly anticipated IFA 2014 event. In a press release sent out today, Archos revealed the 50b Platinum phone, complete with an unnamed quad-core processor, and an IPS display with “HD video encoding capability”. No word on RAM or internal storage but the 50b Platinum will come with three back covers in blue, black and pink and an 8GB microSD card.

It appears that Flipkart, an India-based company, will be the only retailer selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini in the country.
The phone (SM-G900) will be on sale in the next few days. This is not Flipkart’s first go-around with device exclusivity — the company was the only retailer to offer the Moto G in India last February.

Samsung is definitely leading the smartwatch pack in terms of how many models they’ve released, and while one of these devices runs the new and exciting Android Wear, three of them run Samsung’s own Tizen OS, which Samsung has no plans to abandon. In fact, Samsung are now boasting that there are over 1,000 apps available for their Tizen-powered watches and have released a handy infographic to help you find what they consider the best of the best.
Earlier this month Huawei Device Chairman and Consumer BG CEO Yu Chengdong suggested a variant of the Huawei Ascend P7 equipped with a sapphire display could be on the way to market. This is part of the company’s intent to release “shocking products” that will push the boundaries of the market. That suggestions seems to have moved from suggestion to certainty after Yu posted a new image of the Ascend P7 on Chinese social site Weibo and indicated the company is adding a Sapphire line to their portfolio.
Aside from the addition of a Sapphire display to the device, no other information was shared indicating other hardware will change. Yu also did not say anything about pricing or a release date. However, Huawei may want to reveal the new variant at IFA 2014 next week when they can get a jump on other major industry players by being first to market with a sapphire display.

The Moto G has been the hottest selling Motorola phone in history so we are expecting big things with the Moto G2. Speaking of big, it’s going to be bigger in the literal sense. Last year’s Moto G had a 4.5-inch display, but this years G2 will sport a full 5-inches with smaller bezels. It’s also going to get upgraded to 720p (1280 x 720).
The main camera is also getting an upgrade from 5 MP to 8 MP, and a microSD slot should be standard now. Probably the biggest surprise has to be front-facing stereo speakers, something that is never found on budget devices. Throw in a Snapdragon 400, 1 GB of RAM, and a removable back that can be customized, and you have a winner.
