Some might say that these new “curve” devices are more novelty-based than actually useful, but the technology is certainly appealing and will definitely have something to show us in the next few years.
But for now, we’re stuck with the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Round— LG is now sending out invites for their international launch event for the G Flex. The event will take place on December 3rd in Hong Kong. The device is rumored to be coming to the United States in early 2014 on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, and will be in France next month.
It’ll most likely be a pretty expensive device, as it’s going for about $940 in South Korea and features a self-healing back panel, a 6-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel shooter.

Enter your phone number on Staples’ offer page and you’ll get a text message with a coupon link for $10 off your purchase of $30 or more. Staples may try to force you to carry out the sale on your device, but you can simply copy the digits from the mobile coupon and paste it in your desktop web browser to complete your sale on your computer.
As one user pointed out, you can use the deal on the Chromecast, which is normally $35— it will go down to $25 + free shipping, about $5 less than what Amazon is offering it for today in their Black Friday deal. (You won’t get the free $6 of Google Play credit of course, but if you don’t care about that/won’t use it, then this is a decent deal.)

Huawei’s “G750″ (most likely the Glory 4) has some leaked pictures going around the web, and the device is rumored to have MediaTek’s octa-core MT6592 CPU running inside— MediaTek says that the processor can run all eight cores simultanoeusly— an impressive feat.
The processor supports 4K video playback and cameras with 16MP stills and full HD.
The device is supposed to have a 5.5-inch display but only with 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage. The device is expected to ship with Android 4.2.2 (according to a leaked photo) but that can always change. Hit the link below from GSM Arena for more photos.

Earlier this week we told you that the white Droid Ultra would likely be coming to Verizon very soon to join the previously leaked white Droid Mini. Now we’re here to tell you that starting today, you can get your hands on these new colors. The phone is obviously exactly the same except for the color change— the Droid Ultra is now available through Verizon for $99.99 and the Droid Mini is now available for $49.99. Looking for a stylish new device? These two are definitely high on that list.

Thinking about getting a Note 3 for the holiday season? Now may be the time to act.
The device is on sale through Verizon for $199.99 with a new 2 year contract, and for this weekend only, all activation fees are being waived for as many lines as you want. (Pre-paid phones are not part of the offer.)
This isn’t the most aggressive sale we’ve seen from Verizon in past years, but expect prices to go pretty low on other devices today and throughout the holiday season.
While the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has quite a few different color variations, the Note 3 was launched primarily in just black and white (with a hard-to-find pink variant out there as well). In January however, Samsung’s flagship phablet will be available in red and White Gold, according to SamMobile’s insider sources. The red version will launch in the first week of January, while the White Gold version will follow two weeks later.
Availability will be worldwide, but some retailers and carriers might get an exclusive claim on the new colors for a particular period of time. If you’re looking for a Note 3 for the holidays, just remember that you might want to wait a few weeks and grab a snazzy red or White Gold version instead of black or white.
Pantech is rumored to be working on another phone in their Vega lineup with a 5-inch screen and a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint recognition thing seems to be the hot new feature on smartphones, since we’re seeing it on many new flagship phones and even Pantech’s Vega Secret Note. There’s not much else known about the device, except that it will likely have a full HD screen (also a standard for smartphones now) and we’re expecting a December release. I’m sure we’ll hear more about it as we get closer to the launch date.
What do you guys think about fingerprint scanners? Are you happy that it seems like it’s becoming a standard feature, or does it seem gimmicky to you?

A photo of Oppo’s R829T back-side has been released online, and shows off a reflective material used on the back panel. Oppo is reportedly calling it a “holographic mirror design.” There also appears to be a metal frame around the device. The top left corner features the 13MP shooter and LED flash, and internally, the phone has a MediaTek MT6589 processor, which is a quad-core Cortex A7 clocked at 1.2GHz. The phone also has 1GB RAM.
Launch date and price are not yet available but stay tuned for more information.
HTC has another One variant coming down the pipeline, and this one has a dual-SIM option. The device, which has a removable back, has access to a microSD slot as well. You’ll be able to switch easily between SIMs and have up to 64GB storage.
However, the new variant does not have LTE support. Otherwise, the device is exactly the same. The phone is up for pre-order right now for $809 (w/o a new 2-year contract).
