The Samsung Galaxy S5 rumor tide is slowly but steadily turning, as fresh sources seem to debunk all the speculation about aluminum build while giving increased credence to built-in fingerprint scanner.
The latest in a long line of Nokia Normandy-centric rumors calls for the company’s purported first Android device to be marketed as the Nokia X and get an official announcement in late February, at the Mobile World Congress.
Likely in an attempt to make users forget about the lack of One X/One X+ software support, HTC has announced the Android 4.4 KitKat update for One versions available on US carriers is in the hands of the “big four”.
While it’s still unclear exactly when LG plans to roll out its 2014 flagship mobile devices, likely called G Pro 2 and G3, a fresh report out of Korea makes one joint feature look certain: fingerprint scanning.
SFR, France’s second biggest wireless service provider, announced a little while ago that Android 4.4 KitKat was rolling out to the HTC One, only to backtrack and postpone the update until “early February”.
Sony has launched a Wi-Fi-only variant of the Xperia Z Ultra, perhaps after realizing no one was using the gigantic device for phone calls.
It seems the D6503, aka “Sirius”, is not the only unreleased high-end Sony handheld in testing, as a D6603 has been benchmarked through AnTuTu with an evolved Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU beneath the hood.
AT&T is the second major carrier stateside to officially price the LG G Flex and announce a pre-order start, whereas the European rollout is scheduled to begin next month with more than 20 countries.
Debunking recent rumors that called for a Samsung Galaxy S5 March intro, a reputable Russian journalist has tweeted “the next big thing” is now expected out in time for February’s Mobile World Congress.
HTC may swim against the Quad HD resolution tide after all and opt for a Full HD panel on its next-gen flagship device, according to a User Agent Profile found on the company’s website.
The so-called Sony “Sirius”, expected to debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress as some sort of Xperia Z1 rehash, has apparently been caught on camera over the week-end, while its rumored specs look positively… pedestrian.
As Samsung’s “next big thing” announcement is undoubtedly approaching, the rumor-mongering is officially out of control, with each new day bringing something fresh to the Galaxy S5 mix while at the same time refuting something old and seemingly rock-solid.
LG officials brought upon themselves a massive wave of public flak when issuing confusing statements on G2’s Android 4.4 KitKat update, but ultimately the Koreans may still prevail in the software support challenge, as they’re working on bumps for roughly a dozen old and new devices.
Samsung may not shake up its manufacturing cycle after all and roll out the Galaxy S5 exactly one year behind the S4, but one of the company’s traditional mobile adversaries, LG, is now believed to ponder a strategy shift of sorts.
Blessed by the FCC in a 4G LTE-enabled version for South Korea (SM-N7505), the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (aka Lite) is as good as confirmed, making it extremely difficult for the tiniest shred of buzz or excitement to still hover more than a month from now.
A new set of unofficial pics showcasing the way Nokia intends to blend Android and Windows Phone on the upcoming Normandy handheld has surfaced online, along with possible hints as to the timing of the release.
Unlike Samsung with the “experimental” Galaxy Round, LG appears to have taken this curved display smartphone business quite seriously right off the bat, as its first stab at the futuristic concept, the G Flex, is almost ready to take America by storm.
Despite regularly dependable sources allegedly “confirming” Samsung Galaxy S5’s specs and a company official pointing at the next big thing’s ETA, it seems there’s still room for last-minute change as far as both timelines and features are concerned.
HP has been aiming low ever since (tardily) joining the Android party, with modestly specced, low-priced slates, and the company’s first smartphone efforts in almost three years are no different.
We’re halfway through January and there’s no trace of the LG G2 mini around, in spite of the timeline tipped by reliable sources last month, however pieces of an LG phone’s User Agent Profile have been uncovered today, bringing the rumors back on the table.
