samsung_sm_n910_techtastic_video

A video showing the Galaxy Note 4 has surfaced. Well, it sort of shows the Galaxy Note 4. The video is just 15 seconds long and shows a Samsung device with the model number SM-N910. All you can see is its display as a dummy box is covering any actual design. In the video, the demonstrator is poking around aimlessly. There is not very much to see here except the fact that you can get a good sizing for the Galaxy Note 4′s display (if this is even the said device).

Hit the break to watch the full 15-second video.

sony_selfie_phone_front

The year 2014 will be remembered for its selfies. Anywhere you turn, in the real world or online, someone taking a photograph of themselves can be found. We have already seen companies aim to master the art of a single camera for both sides, but not quite like this. The image above is allegedly an unannounced Sony device that is all about selfies. The entire devices resembles a women’s perfume bottle and has a massive lens for the camera that swivels 360 degrees so that it can be used as a front facing or rear camera depending upon the position.

Sony may be working on Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact version

sony_xperia_z3_tablet_compact_user_guide_reference

While reviewing the user guide for a Bluetooth speaker with a charging dock, the Sony BSC10, readers noted an unusual entry. Amongst the compatible devices listing is an entry for an “Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact” which seems to imply Sony is working on a tablet device smaller than the typical 10-inch plus devices they produce. Sony is not really a big player in the tablet market to begin with and their limited selection tends toward the larger devices.

Of course a lone listing gives us no clues about what the size or specs of a compact tablet from Sony may be, but odds are it will be in the 7- or 8-inch range. In the past, Sony has produced an Xperia Z1 Compact smartphone which turned out to be similar to the regular Xperia Z1 smartphone in a smaller size. So an Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact could end up being similar to the regular size Xperia Z3 Tablet with Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM and a 1080p capable screen.

Images of the Moto X+1 front panel, new DROID leak

moto_x1_front_panel_moto_x_comparison

We learned earlier today about specifications for the upcoming Moto X+1, and now we have new images to put its 5.2-inch display into perspective. The image above shows what is allegedly the Moto X+1 (left) next to the original Moto X. The height is certainly larger and the bezels on the sides have been shrunk. It also seems that the top and bottom of the device will feature quality speaker grills. The original Moto X has a 4.7-inch display, so the jump to 5.2 inches is definitely noticeable.

The same source, HelloMotoHK, also posted an image of what is said to be a new DROID device. The design is more rounded and similar to the Moto line of devices. This could have to do with a Moto Maxx device being in the works. Still, though, the image suggests that on-screen navigation buttons are not present. Identical buttons from last year are back in action.

Hit the break for another image of the Moto X+1 and the image of an alleged new DROID device.

Over the weekend images surfaced showing Samsung was involved in a Russian yachting event that included some significant Galaxy Alpha advertising materials. Signage and banners were present and it even appears Samsung paid to have the event name include their latest device. At least one of the photos shows some of the attendees posing with what is presumably the Galaxy Alpha.
