Nokia is promising over half-a-dozen new devices to be announced at its Nokia World event on October 22. Will this be what Nokia needs to make itself more competitive against established device giants?
Chinese manufacturer UMI has announced the X2S, the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a true eight-core processor.
It’s a mid-range Android smartphone with a high-end digital camera hitched to it. No, it’s a point-and-shoot that just happens to run Android and support voice calls.
As I’m sure you all realized by now, October 15, which many “rock-solid” insiders pinned down as Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat’s D-Day, came and went, with no chocolaty treats or Full HD-toting, pure Android-running hardware detailed.

Lock and load, ladies and gents keeping an eye on the so-called ongoing spec wars of smartphones, as Chinese OEM Vivo is reportedly prepping an unprecedented attack against everyone from Samsung to LG to Apple.
When word first started trickling out that HTC considered downsizing One max’s processor and go the Snapdragon 600 way instead of S800, I’ll not lie, I was pretty bummed out. After all, why go the “max” way if you won’t go all the way?

Intel’s updated Smart Sound Technology DSP found in 2014′s Broadwell promises to outsmart Siri in every way possible. The catch? It’s already partially here in some Bay Trail configurations.

Of the three major diminutive Android flagship versions unveiled so far, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 mini is probably the least exciting on paper, what with HTC’s One mini rocking a far superior screen and sturdy aluminum build and Sony’s Xperia Z1 mini being… well, simply awesome.
The decision to replace their yesteryear flagship with a plastic version of the same hardware might not be working out too well for Apple, according to the latest reports.
