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.
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.
It’s common knowledge by this point that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be launching by the first quarter of 2015. And just as we head into 2015, we’re starting to get a rough idea regarding the hardware of this Samsung flagship (SM-G925F). The latest revelation comes from AnTuTu, which is renowned for leaking out hardware details of smartphones and tablets ahead of schedule.
When Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy S 5 earlier this year, it was generally praised as a solid smartphone and reports indicate it sold 5 million units in May. However, all things are relative and those initial sales lagged behind Apple iPhone sales and the pace that Samsung set with their Galaxy S 4. This appears to have contributed to some disappointing financial results and has left the company in the unusual position of needing a big hit with their next device to turn things around.
The Moto X+1 has literally been everywhere since the rumors began just a few months ago. It will certainly be Motorola’s next flagship, and is definitely coming soon.
More rumors today, naturally.
Now while we can’t promise that these leaked videos of the upcoming Galaxy S5 Active will stay online forever, they’re at least here for now. (We suggest you watch them while you still can before Samsung does something about it.) We showed you some leaks on Tuesday, but these are even better.
The videos you’ll find after the break go into detail regarding the phone’s hardware and software. The first two videos offer a complete hands on of the phone (part 1 and 2), the third video shows off the phone’s OIS camera, the fourth demonstrates the exclusive applications that will come with the phone, and the fifth video compares the S5 Active with the S5. Hit the break for more.
