Motorola Working On A Nexus Phablet!

gsmarena_001The Nexus 5 is a hot phone. It brings the best stock Android experience for an even attractive off contract price. So for the past 6 months or so we have been hearing on going rumors of which OEM would be making the next Nexus.

A new rumor suggests that there will be a new Nexus this year which will launch somewhere around November. Codenamed Shamu, Motorola is expected to be the one making it. The codename which fits with the sea creature theme that Google has used so far to assign codenames to Nexus devices.

The fact that a device with this codename exists has been reported by the Google Bug tracker tool and backed by Android Police. The Shamu has a 5.9 inch screen on the front – which is the biggest screen a Nexus phone has ever had. Would this interest you? Are you looking for a Nexus Phablet?

Woah, A Galaxy S4 Was Set To Fire Under A Girl’s Pillow!

fire_flames_burning_fiery_phone_case-r542b560d868542999419dc928dc1a702_fguxw_8byvr_512A 13 year old, Ariel Tolfree from Texas found herself rudely awoken in the middle of the night by the smell of her burning phone kept under her pillow.

A white Samsung Galaxy S4 was burning under her pillow thanks to a battery inside which decided to give up and lit the phone on fire due to overheating. There was a huge hole burnt in her pillow and the choking smell of chemicals woke her up. Samsung is not to blame over here since investigation found out that she was using a counterfeit replacement battery and not an original Samsung battery pack.

Samsung has also offered to replace the phone, bedding, mattress and pillow! Check out the video below :

This Is The Upcoming Moto X+1!

moto-x1-ap-1A year back, at this time, motorola was already teasing the Moto X. So naturally this time around, we have been looking out to a successor of the phone.

This is the closest we have ever been to seeing a final unit. This phone looks like it has the Moto X dna but things are much different now. We have what looks like a front facing speaker at the bottom. The wooden finish looks much more natural and premium. We can also see the dual-flash design that houses two flash lights on the perimeter of the camera.


Around the sides we see that this phone isn’t plastic, it has a metal body or a re-inforced metal frame along the sides which looks classy wih antenna cutouts. It seems that by the end of summer, we may have this phone out in in the market.

Samsung’s Metal Body Galaxy!

galaxy-alpha-1For once we were made to believe that the premium, metal-body Galaxy F was the Galaxy S5 LTE-A. But a new set of images surface today that say that there is another device coming up that looks just like the Galaxy S5, but is different in it’s own way.

The source has shed some light on the specs – a 4.7″ Super AMOLED display, LTE-enabled Exynos chipset, 32GB non-expandable storage, fingerprint and hear-rate sensors, Galaxy S5-like plastic rear cover and metallic frame. With the mettalic frame and the fingerprint scanner onboard this new phone –  it sounds like Samsung is sparing nothing to make sure they have an iPhone 6 contender readied up in time.

New Lost Cost Windows Phone 8.1 Is Here!

Lumia-530-Group_featNokia Lumia has been selling decently in the last couple of months, and one of the biggest reasons behind this is their strong line of low cost devices.

The Nokia Lumia 520 was one of the finest selling devices in their entire range of Lumia products, Nokia – actually Microsoft, thinks it’s time to give the most famous Lumia a revamp and we have the Lumia 530 here. What we are looking at is a 4 inch LCD screen with a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz paired with 512 MB of RAM and a 5 MP fixed focus rear camera.

The device will be running on Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box so that’s good. It should hit the US shores later this year for an off-contract price not exceeding 150$.

Spotted : iPad Air Mini With iPhone 6!?

14696126473_8577b3331f_oThe iPhone 6′s purported September release might more than a month away but that doesn’t stop us from exploring what analysts think would be the next step by Apple.

The iPhone 6 is definitely happening – with a bigger screen with a higher resolution and a metal body unlike the one seen on any iPhone before, the iPhone 6 is definitely going to be interesting. Whats interesting is hearing news about an addition – more than a refresh, to the existing line of iPad minis.

There is a rumored iPad Air Mini with a body inspired by the iPad Air in works for a mini form factor. Images above were created by a graphic artist, but they look very convincing and life-like since the dimensions used are sourced from some leaked documents.

What do you’ll think, they look sexy together don’t they?

Woah, This May Be Moto G-2!

moto-g-2Motorola has had it;s fair share of leaks in the past few months, we have had mysterious hardware appearing that we believed was the successor to the Moto X or a prototype of that.

What we have today is a leak that points towards a phone in the lower-mid spec range by the looks of it. Reportedly the company’s model XT 1068, the new Moto G would keep the original’s 720p resolution, and may go with another Snapdragon 400 SoC. The upgrade is expected to be in the camera department with an upgrade from the 5 MP version to 8 MP in the newer version.

This version could also have stereo front facing speakers. We are also expecting a successor to the Moto X soon since it was last August when the X was first released. What do you think the G+1 or G2 would bring with it?

Note 4 To Have A Flexible Display And A Metal Body!?

flexible-displaySince the iPhone is the only phone outside Android that is being talked about, it’s time we take a look at what OEMs are doing on this side of the line.

Samsung is apparently working on it’s Note 4 which is rumored to come with a flexible display measuring anywhere between 5.7-6 inches and would be sporting a 2K resolution. We still do not have bendable glass out commercially so that is odd. The source also claims that Samsung may not carry the usual faux leather design to the Note 4 and would instead make a metallic body. Again metallic and flexible at the same time – seems odd.

The camera on the Note 4 would be bumped up with a new sensor and a 16 MP resolution with Optical Image Stabilization. Samsung may eventually bring only a handful of these features or two but still then the Note 4 would be a hot device.
