Life should not be all about flagship smartphones with cutting edge specifications. So it is always nice to see when a carrier opts to sell mid-range devices. They need some love too, after all. It looks like HTC and Verizon will be teaming up to bring the Desire 610 to Big Red customers.

On Twitter, @evleaks said that the handset would be heading to Verizon. And back in March, we heard that it would also be available through AT&T as well. Perhaps this is a sign other carriers like Sprint or T-Mobile will carry the Desire 610.

Press render of the LG G3 in a case leaks once again

lg_g3_in_case_leak_evleaks_black

Last weekend, the LG G3 was no stranger to the world. We saw the alleged beast in white, black with a case, and again in white with a case. Then we saw it with the display on. Now we have another look at the G3 covered by a case, but this time the image is of very good quality.

On the front we are looking at an incredibly slim bezel, something LG is no stranger to. Again, there are no physical buttons on the front or sides. Everything is on the back. Below the camera is a refined volume key/power button setup. Could it support a fingerprint sensor? Maybe.

To one side of the camera is the flash and the other side has an unknown component. Some say this is the IR blaster, and that could be true given the LG G Flex has it on the back. Read more
