Although much of the latest rumor frenzy surrounding HTC involves the forthcoming HTC One M9 smartphone, a new leak from Twitter leakster @upleaks shows an HTC Desire 626 is in the works. Earlier this month at CES 2015, HTC announced a couple new devices for their HTC Desire line of budget smartphones. The HTC Desire 826 is heading to Asian markets while the HTC Desire 320 is off to the U.K. and Germany. Presumably, based on the model number, the HTC Desire 626 will fall in the middle of these devices spec-wise.
Forget about the LG G4 because this device, if real, should have your attention. Earlier today on Twitter, @upleaks provided the image above. It shows a flip phone with Android running as the operating system. How do we know it is Android? The layout and icons are identical to what is found on any LG device. Here, it is just minimized. The name “Ice Cream Smart” is attached to the image; therefore, we could be looking at a possible name because the company already released an Ice Cream in 2008. While Ice Cream Smart would be very random, the name would be original for LG.
Would you be interested in a flip phone with Android, particularly for someone that needs a simplified handset? Let us know in the comments.
Some images alleged to be the forthcoming HTC One M9 flagship from HTC have surfaced on the web and appear to support rumors suggesting HTC is making a major change to the cameras in its top tier device. The HTC One M8 was generally regarded as a solid contender in the market with one exception – the Ultra Pixel camera technology used for the rear-facing camera. Despite HTC’s marketing efforts to explain why their solution was better, consumers wanted more pixels. For the HTC One M9, it appears HTC is bowing to the pressure and will outfit the smartphone with a 20 MP rear-facing shooter.
We’ve known for a while now that Google is redesigning the File Manager application within Chrome OS and today some leaked details have appeared online. If a report published by OMG Chrome is anything to go by, it looks like the search engine giant has baked a new ‘Cloud Import’ feature into its latest build of the app.
The most anticipated devices to launch in early 2015 will come from Samsung and HTC. However, it seems that LG can be added to the mix. Why? Information involving the LG G4 has been trickling in over the last few weeks. And now we have learned about some of its alleged specifications. Unsurprisingly, the Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm will be the processor selected. The amount of RAM joining the processor is 3GB. A system dump of the Android 5.0 operating system makes it appear as if a 16MP camera will be included. In all (if true), LG has quite the handset on its hands.
A launch at Mobile World Congress 2015 in March is a possibility for the LG G4.

Motorola took the budget segment by storm last year when it announced the Moto E smartphone in developing markets. And today, a new device has popped up over at the FCC with the ID IHDT56QF1, bearing all the markings of a successor. The device comes with the model number 4583 which is very vague and leaves much to our imagination.
Are you eager to see what the official version of Android L will look like on LG’s G2? If so, its your lucky day. Earlier today, a video emerged on YouTube demonstrating the much-anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop update running on LG’s flagship smartphone of 2013.
A couple days ago an image of the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi5′s chassis leaked that seemed to indicate the new smartphone will be very thin when released later this week. That image was a printout describing the chassis with a drawing or image. Today some new images have surfaced of an actual aluminum chassis that are reportedly the chassis for the Mi5.
The candy bar form factor which Samsung adopted for its Gear range of smartwatches has been criticised a lot since its introduction to the market back in September, 2013, but now it looks like that’s all about to change. According to SamMobile, the South Korean company is working on a brand new, round-faced model.
Take a look at the processor in any Android device in the United States and there is a very good chance that a Qualcomm Snapdragon is found. The same cannot be said for devices in other parts of the world though. Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Intel, and MediaTek will all be fighting to power devices in different regions. With the next HTC flagship in China, MediaTek is reportedly supplying the processor. The exact reason behind HTC’s decision to go with MediaTek is unknown, but there have been rumors that Snapdragon 810 production is rocky. By splitting the work among two suppliers, HTC can deliver a global launch.
