One of two existing curved display smartphones and the sole representative of the race that actually bends, LG’s G Flex, is closer and closer of seeing daylight stateside.
Despite previous reports that pegged LG and HTC as the likeliest candidates for co-branding the 2014 Nexus 7 alongside Google, it appears Asus has a shot at being chosen again as well.
In spite of HTC’s recent financial struggles and the brand’s descending relevance in the high-end smartphone landscape, the Taiwanese are not ready to call it quits just yet, having a pretty encouraging “M8” handheld in the pipeline.
It’s only been a month since Gionee has started selling the top-notch Elife E6 in India and the budget-conscious GPad G3 has seen daylight 24 hours ago, but apparently the Chinese OEM is already hard at work on sequels for both devices.
Motorola has different plans for different markets in regards to Moto G’s rollout, as countries like Brazil and India are reportedly scoring the cheap powerhouse in a dual-SIM flavor, whereas Verizon US will be pairing the single-SIM with prepaid plans come Q1 2014.
Defying every price barrier known to mobile enthusiasts and pushing common sense to the limits, Gionee has announced the GPad G3 quad-core phablet in India, pricing it at an unbelievable $157 (Rs. 9,999).
LG’s G Flex, one of two smartphones touting curved displays to go official of late, is apparently getting a much wider rollout than initially expected, being due out in Europe “by December”, as well as on at least three of America’s big four networks.
Always a step (or several) behind competitors Samsung and Micromax as far as smartphone sales in India are concerned, Karbonn looks to finally break the rivals’ duopoly by rolling out a new flagship device dubbed Titanium X.
As if the recent rumor bonanza was not enough to convince the world Sony is this close to rolling out an international version of the Xperia Z1 f dubbed Z1s, a likely accidental official confirmation of the phone’s existence has come earlier today.
It appears HTC may have finally learned from past mistakes, as the company’s next-gen flagship device, codenamed M8, is tipped to go on sale via all four major carriers stateside: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
Closely following Sprint, T-Mobile USA has made Nexus 5 ETAs and pricing official. The latest “pure Google phone” will land in T-Mo’s online store November 14, with brick and mortar locations set to get the handheld six days later.
There are only two days left until Motorola will make its spanking new Moto G official and the low-cost version of the Moto X is pretty much an open book following previous spills of information and two fresh tidbits.
Those in South Korea will soon have two smartphones with curved displays to choose from, as the LG G Flex is set to launch in the country next week.
ZTE made quite a few waves in the Western media when it finally rolled out the Grand S and Nubia 5 stateside, but now the Chinese are looking to move up to the next level with a Snapdragon 800-powered Nubia Z5S.
Xolo is at it again in its effort to become a real threat for Samsung’s Indian mobile business, this time rolling out a phablet dubbed Q2000 that touts mostly mid-end specs.
It may seem a little too soon, but HTC’s rumored next-gen flagship device, codenamed M8, has been snapped on camera from the back.
Say, do you by chance know what in the name of Android KitKat happened with the alleged Asus-made second-generation Nexus 10? I mean, all the signs pointed to the big guy chaperoning the Nexus 5 on its way to store shelves, yet the 10-incher is still not official.
It looks like the Moto G launch and Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Moto X, Droid Maxx, Ultra and Mini are not the only neat little surprises Motorola has in store for its fans ahead of the holiday season.
With Android 4.4 KitKat officially official, fully detailed and available already on a number of Nexus devices, it’s only a matter of time until gadgets not running stock versions of Google’s OS will also be bestowed upon the honor of savoring the latest chocolaty software treat.
So you thought the Asian onslaught of Android flip phones was a joke, huh? A passing fad, a whim, a bizarre eccentricity as many Westerners tend to describe Oriental customs they don’t get or resonate with.
