Although Sony has been unable (or unwilling) to control the leaky faucet that’s brought us more Honami reports, unofficial pics and camera samples than one can count in the past few weeks, the upcoming high-end 5-inch phone continues to thrive in the spotlight.
After spectacularly leaping to number two in Indian smartphone sales and even closing in on Samsung, the market’s leader, we’re sad to inform you Micromax looks unable or unwilling to further step its game up.
We always knew one or more of China’s big smartphone players were going to step up their game and become a real menace for Samsung and HTC before long. But probably not many would have counted on it being Xiaomi.
Oppo’s next flagship smartphone is set for an announcement next month, but leaked pictures and specs already paint a clear picture of what we can expect from the Chinese manufacturer.
Quick show of hands, who here is familiar with BLU Products? Anybody? Anybody at all? Well, it’s your loss, as the somewhat humble Miami-based mobile phone manufacturer has grown immensely in just four years of existence, making huge waves in Latin and North America, as well as Europe with solid budget-conscious gadgets.
Motorola has revealed on its website that the Developer Edition of the Moto X is coming soon, with an unlocked bootloader and 32 gigs of built-in storage.
We’re days away from the official announcement of Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z1 (Honami) smartphone, and the manufacturer has hinted that the device will be waterproof via a teaser on Twitter.
Verizon has officially announced the LG Enact, a 4-inch smartphone that features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and 4G LTE connectivity and costs only $20 on-contract.
Yes, you read that right, QWERTY sliders aren’t ready to fade into being remnants of a time long past just yet, something LG is aiming to prove with the Enact for Verizon.
As you well know by now, Nvidia’s newest mobile chip, the Tegra 4, is shaping up to be an illustrious dud, despite its makers trying to turn the tables by manufacturing devices powered by the CPU from scratch.
Flip phones, or handhelds with clamshell designs, might be considered a thing of the (distant) past in America or Europe, but it appears they’re still in demand in parts of Asia. Or at least that’s what Samsung wants to think.
Just like it has happened in the past with the Xperia Z and Z Ultra, the Sony Xperia “Honami” is unable to maintain the slightest air of mystery ahead of its formal introduction, being an open book for us all already.
Remember how “industry sources” close to Digitimes claimed just last week that HTC was looking to “drift away” from Windows Phone 8 and focus solely on Android? Guess what, we have every reason to believe that rumor is complete bull.
It seems hard to believe that a journalist with Taylor Wimberly’s contacts and reputation may get a story as big as that of the Motorola-made N5 wrong, but there’s increasing buzz of LG being Google’s partner for the next Nexus family member after all.
Chinese manufacturer Oppo is following up its well-received Find 5 with the R819, a mid-range 4.7-inch handset that will give users the option to run stock Android 4.2.1.
Although everybody loves a good old-fashioned spill of information preceding a glamorous smartphone unveiling, you have to admit it’s become a little annoying to know every single detail beforehand. It just spoils all the fun and excitement, don’t you think?
Chinese manufacturer Meizu has sent invitations to an event on September 2 in Beijing, China, where it is expected to unveil its newest flagship smartphone, the Meizu MX3.
No matter if you like Windows Phone or not, if you’re rooting for it to grow and become solid competition for Android or you reckon the smartphone market will thrive on a Google – Apple duopoly, you can’t deny Microsoft’s platform is almost exclusively Nokia’s territory at the moment.
Rumors regarding highly anticipated devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 might be a dime a dozen, especially with less than a month left to its formal intro, but when a website with Sam Mobile’s track record publishes a spec sheet based on a trusted insider’s tip, we have to listen up.
Show of hands, who here has ever heard of the LG Optimus Vu 2? How about the first-gen device? Maybe the LG Intuition? No one? Didn’t think so. And yet a Vu 3 is reportedly in the works and due to be made official come next month’s IFA tech expo.
