Videos of the all new HTC One have appeared, disappeared, and have been both useful and useless. But now we finally have some really nice high quality photos of the upcoming device. Some of the photos even compare HTC’s new flagship with the HTC One Max.

The photos have been posted on Weibo. Expect more leaks to come before the device’s March 25 unveiling date. Hit the break below for more.

Nexus Vegetables 1

The Nexus 5 official announcement is going to come any day now, and we’ve received a series of leaked images of the device since rumors started floating around the web. Now, we’re starting to see some camera samples on Google+ from the Nexus 5.

They’re pretty normal pictures, but after going into the EXIF data, the Nexus 5 is listed as the device used to take the picture. There were other images that appeared which showed a Googler during a family Halloween event at the Googleplex.

Hit the break for the full resolution image.

Even more Nexus 5 photos leak, this time from Russia

Nexus 5 front

The Nexus 5 has been a worse-kept secret than the newly unveiled HTC One Max. We’ve already seen an extensive hands on video of the latest Nexus device over the weekend, but today we’re getting even more shots of the device from a Google+ user in Russia. He uploaded a handful of pics of the device alongside the title “From Russia with Love.” Not subtle, but hey, at least we get a few more peeks at the device.

There’s nothing here that we haven’t already seen, before you get too excited. It shows the front of the device, charger placement, the matted back of the device complete with vertical Nexus logo, etc. At this point, I’m honestly more excited for the announcement of the device for Android 4.4, because there are at least a few secrets hidden there somewhere. Hopefully that announcement is right around the corner. You can hit the break to check out the pictures. » Read the rest

As we edge closer to an announcement of the next iteration of Android, aka KitKat, and the next generation of Google’s Nexus program it can be expected that the trickle of leaks will turn into a flood. Today’s leak comes in the form of a screenshot and bug report. That screenshot shows us more of what we’ve already seen while also debunking last week’s colorful leak.

As we can see from the picture above, the white status bar icons are back and identical to the now-removed Korean Keyboard IME screenshot from last week. The antennae toting piece of pie is still there. We also see what appears to be Google Authenticator icons. All of this, debunking the previous screenshot with the transparent icons. If not to debunk it further, the gents over Android Police were able to confirm the accuracy and legitimacy of the leaked bug report.

Sony Mobile seeks to end leaks

Sony-leaks

As we’ve seen time and time again, upcoming devices’ designs and specs are leaked much earlier than their intended reveal. While many companies like Samsung are good at keeping things a secret, others are not as fortunate. Sony is among the many that has not been so lucky as their newest flagship, the Sony Xperia Z1, surfaced across the web before its IFA 2013 event in Berlin. So today someone snapped a photo at a Sony Mobile office in Asia that exposed some of their rules. With these rules now being posted for employees to see, Sony hopes to at least slow down the amount of leaks for their devices.

Mysterious Sony device leaked for your viewing pleasure— all fingers point to the Xperia Z1 (Honami) mini

Sony_Honami_mini_leak

2013 has been a resounding success for Sony, so it should come as no surprise it is continuing its momentum by working on additional devices for release before year’s end. One of those devices that we’re expecting happens to be a miniature beast of a device— such as you know, the mysterious Honami mini that we’ve heard so much about lately? Well after hearing some of the rumored specs such as a Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, 4.3-inch HD 720p resolution and 20-megapixel main camera with Sony G Lens, we now have a pretty good idea of how this puppy looks— at least in its early form. Thanks to XDA member Xleaky, we can see a slightly fuzzy image of a diminutive  Sony device that’s a smidge smaller than the Blackberry Q10 smartphone. Additionally, Xleaky also asserts that “you didn’t see this from me… but 4th of Sep is gonna be exciting! Thats all I’m saying!” 

So what does this mean exactly? No one knows exactly really. There could be a chance that the leak could be a fake (which tends to happen more often than not)— but then again, there could be a chance that we’re getting a good idea of what this Honami mini looks like, as well as something to look forward to at IFA Berlin 2013. So now the question is: you folks excited yet?

Those of you Verizon customers out there looking for a new smartphone in the immediate future will probably be excited at this tidbit of news we’re about to share. The gang at Phone Arena obtained a leaked road map of Big Red’s August lineup and boy it’s certainly a doozy. Verizon intends to launch smartphones that will cater to all sorts of customers, starting with the imminent release of the Motorola DROID and DROID MAXX smartphones which will arrive on August 20th, followed by highly anticipated unveiling of the Motorola X smartphone (August 23rd), LG Exalt, Motorola DROID mini, the waterproof Kyocera Hydro Elite (online-only) and Samsung Convoy 3 (all on August 29th). As exciting as those (almost) concrete dates are, the one that will carry the most weight will be the August 29th release of the HTC One smartphone… a phone that we thought we’d never see the light of day for Verizon customers.

So yeah… it looks like you Verizon customers will probably need to start scraping up those extra dollars since it may be well, an expensive month for you all.

Sure the sweet-looking HTC One mini has been announced, but most Americans don’t quite know if they’ll have a shot of getting the intriguing new device. Fortunately, AT&T users who are in the market for a new device can start scraping up a spare buck or two thanks to a mystery variant of the smartphone that hit the FCC hallways recently. This PO58220 variant of the device features what seems to be AT&T-compatible HSPA+ and LTE frequencies, all but confirming that the fine customers on Ma Bell will have yet another juicy smartphone to choose from. Sadly, as exciting as this tidbit of news is for AT&T customers, it’s still looking like the rest of you probably shouldn’t hold your breath and expect this device to hit your network anytime soon.

Although these are the best pictures to date that we’ve received of the Moto X, they’re certainly not revealing anything groundbreaking to us that we didn’t already know about it. (It feels as though we’ve seen hundreds of photos of the device throughout the past few weeks.) The device will be announced on August 1st and is expected to ship later in the month. To say we’re excited would be an understatement.

Check out the second image (profile) of the device after the break. » Read the rest
