Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Gionee, recently sent out press invites to its Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC) release event. In the invite, a picture of its newest device, the Elife S7, shows off an incredibly slim width.
Gionee, which is in the process of re-branding its company as Kazam, has offered the world’s thinnest smartphones for several years now. So what is the Elife S7 coming in at? Well, recent photos of the device have surfaced and the leaker is claiming that the width is 4.6mm.
HTC‘s upcoming flagship device, the One M9 (also referred to as Hima), just had photos of its back-plate leaked by the French blog, NoWhereElse.fr.
The photos, which you can see all of them after the break, detail a gorgeous metal chassis. This comes in advance of HTC’s official unveiling of the device at Mobile World Congress 2015.
Lenovo‘s hotly anticipated successor for its Vibe Z2 Pro, the Vibe Z3 Pro, has had its image hit the Internet before it was supposed to be unveiled next month during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. And it looks gorgeous (especially that backside)!
The photos were released by Chinese blog, Weibo, who spared no angle when they got their hands on the device.
Polish Android website android.com.pl claims it has gotten its hands on some insider information that details Samsung’s newest venture with the S6: interchangeable back covers that bring an aspect of modular design to the 2015 flagship.
The site’s author, Lucas Spider, says his source states that we could see a back cover that expands the functionality of S Health, a Yota Phone-like e-ink display, advanced camera options, and a back cover that serves as an attachment to fitness machines. Just when you thought your treadmill couldn’t get more exciting, right?
I think it’s safe to say that the rumor mill for the Samsung Galaxy S6 is going to really hit its stride leading up to CES 2015. Rumors of hardware specs, what the case is going to look like and even whether or not it will be unveiled at CES 2015 seem to be debated by many sources. That being said, nowhereelse.fr is reporting that it has gotten its hands on pictures of the S6′s metal frame.
Samsung’s Galaxy A5 is the first of its kind: a mid-level device with high-level metal design. However, due to a mistake from Technodom, a retailer in Kazakhstan, the Galaxy A5 will be landing without some of the splash it could have had had certain information been kept secret.
Yesterday we saw where Samsung had quietly slipped the Samsung Galaxy Alpha in as a sponsor for a yachting regatta in Moscow. Today, more images of the device have surfaced thanks to a Russian source. One of the interesting shots shows the results of an AnTuTu benchmark run on the device that puts it above the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5. While an Exynos 5 octa-core processor that supposedly powers the device helps, much of the performance gain could be due to the lower resolution screen of the Galaxy Alpha. This frees up the processor for other chores outside of producing graphics and makes a strong case for full HD screens being overkill on devices like smartphones that have small displays.
Oh boy, Samsung’s really asking for it here.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha has some more leaked photos, this time alongside an iPhone 5s. We previously thought the new device looked a bit familiar, and now it’s pretty obvious where Samsung took its design cues from.
Of course they’re not exactly alike — the Alpha is 7.6mm thin (thinner than the iPhone), features a removable, 1,850mAh battery, an Exynos 5 Octa chipset with four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores, 32GB internal memory and a Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution. The phone also has a 12MP camera with LED flash and ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Hit the break for the photos of the device alongside the iPhone 5s.
