Twitter user @evleaks has leaked out the press images for Verizon’s 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1— the tablet, which saw the release of its WiFi version back in October, will feature 3GB of RAM and will come in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB versions, all of which can support an additional 64 GB of memory via microSD. The screen will be a 2560×1600 Super clear LCD display. Processor is still unknown, but could either be a 1.9 GHz Octa Core processor or a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, but we’re going with the latter.
Expect official information from Verizon shortly.
The Samsung SM-G900T, supposedly one of the many variants of the upcoming Galaxy S 5, is real. More specifically, the SM-G900T, the T-Mobile version of the S5, had its User Agent profile discovered on Samsung Mobile’s website earlier today. The UA profile is incredibly similar to the SM-G900A, which is believed to be AT&T’s S5. The Sprint S5, the SM-G900P, was also found on Samsung Mobile’s website today.
Samsung should announce the next version of their flagship phone at MWC later this month during an “Unpacked” event on February 24.

The last twenty-four hours have been filled with news regarding the Samsung Galaxy S 5. It started with Samsung potentially teasing user interface changes. Then a closeup of the device’s retail packaging was photographed and shared with the world. The design of the device was leaked. Even a rumor regarding fingerprint scanning on the sides surfaced. But now a user agent profile for the Sprint variant (SM-G900P) has leaked, providing some conflicting information. While the retail packaging suggested a QHD display (2560×1440), the user agent profile cites a 1920x1080p resolution. What this could mean is that there will be two models, as previously reported by an AnTuTu benchmark. The premium model will have the QHD display and the other will feature a display identical to the Galaxy S 4.
What do we know for sure? That the madness has only begun. Samsung’s press conference at Mobile World Congress will take place on February 24 in Barcelona at 20:00 CET (or 8PM EST in the U.S.).

Geeksphone, a Spain-based OEM, will be releasing the “Revolution,” an Android and Firefox-based device on Feb. 20, just four days before Mobile World Congress.
The device will feature a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a 4.7-inch 960 x 540 screen, 1GB RAM, an 8MP rear shooter, and a 2MP front camera.
Its main feature, obviously being able to switch seamlessly between Firefox OS and Android, is certainly a nice addition to the device.
It can be purchased for 289 euro ($395) at launch. An early bird sale will have the phone for sale online-only for 269 euro.
We’ll keep you posted with more information as the release date approaches.

The Alliance for Wireless Charging and Power Matters Alliance, two of the biggest groups around, agreed to create a standard for wireless charging. The end goal of this agreement is to end wireless charging fragmentation. Currently, there are so many wireless charging stations; however, they are not compatible with all devices. For example, Nokia’s smartphones use the Qi standard that was created by the Wireless Power Consortium. This is the group that has not agreed to create a wireless charging standard, unfortunately.
In some cases, a company joins multiple groups while others join just one. Samsung belongs to the A4WP but recently invested in a Qi standard company. Qualcomm, on the other hand, belongs to each of the big three. While the A4WP and PMA are not required to work directly with one another, this agreement should allow them to ‘play nice.’
