A new budget smartphone from Huawei leaked this morning with some interesting hardware reportedly inside and a truly budget price. Perhaps the most notable item included in the new device is a push-to-read fingerprint scanner on the back of the device.

A second GeekBench report emerged earlier today and this time it’s the Galaxy A8 we’re looking at. If this benchmark is anything to go by, it appears the handset won’t actually feature a 5.7-inch display as previously expected. It will, instead, sport a 5.5-inch panel.
Hot on the heals of its official announcement, a leaked snap of the Meizu Note 2 has appeared online, revealing that the handset is set to ship running Flyme — a highly-adapted version of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Sources in China claim that the forthcoming Huawei-produced Google Nexus smartphone will be based on a prototype of the manufacturer’s Mate 8 smartphone.

A few days ago, OnePlus sent out invitations to an exclusive event it’s holding in Beijing, China, on Thursday, May 28, to introduce its brand new operating system, hydrogenOS.

While we wait for April 20th to roll around to see whether Sony goes ahead and officially announces the Sony Xperia Z4 smartphone, a new rumor has surfaced with some new details about the device. According to sources, the Z4 will join the ranks of devices constructed of an all-metal body. If true, it is not clear what Sony will do for the back cover as the Z series of devices have had a glass back that Sony developed. Read more
A handful of leaked pictures surfaced online earlier today disclosing that Samsung is planning on launching a dual-SIM variant of its flagship Galaxy S6. The handset, dubbed the Galaxy S6 Duo, will feature two nano SIM card slots, and is expected to be an Asian exclusive.
In news that is not very surprising, Twitter tipster @upleaks is claiming the HTC Butterfly 3 will be an exclusive to Asian markets. This is consistent with HTC’s strategy for their Butterfly line of devices which tend to be limited to the Japanese market or Asian markets. The Butterfly devices are usually similar, but maybe a tad better in a couple areas, than HTC’s flagship devices that are released to the rest of the world. Read more
