ready_to_note_screenshot

Samsung really wants to make sure everyone is prepared for its Galaxy Note 4 introduction next week. The company has released teaser after teaser in the run up to its IFA 2014 event on September 3. It all started late last week with a video emphasizing the Note series’ handwriting capabilities. Samsung decided to show how powerful the S Pen is in a followup video. And on Wednesday, four videos were released highlighting how a Note device is used by different people.

Of course, Samsung has released yet another video and this one is all about whether or not you are ready to Note. There are handwritten notes flying across the screen as very active events and individuals are in the background. Easily put, Samsung is ready to “Go Big.”

Hit the break to watch the full video.

Verizon resurrects DROID RAZR M as Luge by Motorola for prepaid accounts

motorola_luge_verizon

After a leak earlier this week, Verizon has introduced a “new” phone for customers opting for the prepaid route, but it has a distinctly “old” feel to it. The Luge by Motorola appears to be a re-skinned Motorola DROID RAZR M smartphone and some are even suggesting these may be unsold units. In any case, the Luge is now available through Verizon for only $199 with no contract and no service bundle included, although you can get on Verizon’s 4G LTE network with the device.

Moto Maker for the MotoX+1 to feature leather and possibly even more

moto_maker_colorsIf information from PhoneArena’s insider who’s “close to the situation” pans out, Moto Maker will be adding a few exciting new features with the release of the Moto X+1. Plastic and wood backing aside (as they’re already available) it looks like the rumored leather backing has been confirmed to be an option. Another option that Motorola is rumored to be toying with is a denim backing, although it’s not confirmed. There’s talk of new colors being added as well but the insider source didn’t know of any new colors being added. We’re a week out from seeing what Motorola has in store for us. Stay tuned!

Sony teases the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 tablet

Sony_Teaser_Xperia_Z3_Xperia_Z3-compact_Xperia_Z3-tablet_01

Next week Sony will likely announce the Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Xperia Z3 tablet. We have a good idea about each device, but to hype things up, Sony released a teaser video with some clues. You will notice a “3″ theme towards the beginning, which probably indicates that three devices will be announced. Towards the end, 7 mm, Cu, and H20 flash across the screen, along with the date of September 3rd. 7 mm is the obvious thickness of at least one of the devices, possibly all three.  H2O is an obvious reference that all devices will be waterproof or water resistant. As to Cu, that signifies copper, but we aren’t sure what they are trying to tell us. As to the date, I think that’s self explanatory.

What do you guys think? Are you excited for what Sony will unveil? Hit the break for the short teaser video.

Preview of the Galaxy Mega 2 shows what Samsung’s massive device is like

galaxy_mega_2_preview_droidsans

Several media outlets overseas in Asia are already getting their hands on the new Galaxy Mega 2. The people over at DroidSans did get a Galaxy Mega 2 and were kind enough to publish a preview of the device rather quickly. The front of the Galaxy Mega 2 features a 6-inch display with 720p resolution. Flip it over and you will find a familiar faux leather back panel. The inside of this big device is a processor straight from Samsung itself. The quad-core Exynos processor here is clocked at 1.4GHz and comes with Mali-400 GPU. The person previewing the device notes it is speedy and performs well. While the camera is only 8MP, it is said to be impressive due to the built-in HDR Mode.
