Micromax may still be short of Samsung’s Indian smartphone market share, but when it comes to branding strategies and product portfolios, the Canvas makers have certainly learned a trick or two from their Korea-based rivals.
Rumors are a dime a dozen ahead of each and every high-profile mobile tech unveiling, and, with so much time left until Samsung Galaxy S5′s formal intro, it’s definitely not wise to take anything for granted just yet.
Chinese manufacturer UMI has announced the X2S, the world’s first smartphone to be powered by a true eight-core processor.
White variants of Google’s Nexus devices have never caught on in popularity, but that isn’t stopping the search giant from offering a white Nexus 5.
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?
The battle is over, Samsung prevailed, LG lost… again, and whatever the Optimus makers manage to squeeze out the “G Flex”, it won’t be enough to make people forget Sammy’s Galaxy Round was the first curved display smartphone to see daylight.
Worst kept secret in tech history is a harsh phrase to use in regards to the HTC One max, since the Nexus 5 feels like old news before going official. But let’s not sugarcoat it, HTC’s done a horrendous job in keeping a lid on One max rumors.
Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 tipped for October 15th release, leaked screenshots show built-in NFC payment option
Google seems to be having a harder time keeping the eagerly awaited Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat under wraps with each passing day, as more screenshots from the two have surfaced online.
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.
Quirkiness and exoticism are what usually describe best the seasonal new gadget line-ups of Japan’s leading wireless carriers, but NTT DoCoMo seems to have turned a page with the latest fall-winter selection of phones, which is downright droolworthy.
“Best things come in small packages” is what the elders used to say, but ask Samsung or HTC about the proverb and they’ll cut you off with a “bigger is better” retort. Not Sony though, as the Japanese have just brought to light the highly anticipated Xperia Z1 mini.
Pantech unveils Vega Secret Note, a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note 3 contender with stylus and fingerprint scanner
Don’t look now, Samsung, but your reign of terror over the booming phablet market is about to end. Or at least be seriously challenged for a change, though Pantech’s spanking new Vega Secret Note is likely to keep it modest and only go for South Korean gold.
Second Galaxy Note 3 commercial: collapsing buildings, kids singing and Lionel Messi doing nothing (video)
Ever since Samsung has decided to quit mocking Apple in its Galaxy commercials, things have gone from weird to weirder to weirdest. Remember the dancing ninjas/goat-centric Icelandic ad for the Galaxy S4 (though technically Sammy did mock Apple if you paid close attention)?
With Android 4.4 KitKat official for more than a month now, it’s certainly a little odd to still be left in a fog as to what exactly will the new OS bring to the table in terms of updates and new features.
The Nexus 5 is back for a second round of leaks for the day, with a few screenshots allegedly taken on Google’s upcoming flagship confirming its specs and features.
Moto DVX tipped for 2013 launch with $250 price tag, 6.3-inch Xplay and Droid Quantum landing in 2014
With the Moto X bombing early at the box-office (no one’s made sales numbers official yet, but it’s crystal clear the thing is anything but a hit), the newly owned Google company needs a miracle worker in order to get back on track financial-wise.
Back in the day, when people were still smarter than their phones and glasses were only used to deflect sun or improve eyesight, a mobile device’s sturdiness and reliability was equally as important if not more important than how “sleek” or “cool” the gizmo looked.
