iPhone 6 Coming In 128GB Option This Time!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (2)A leaked document about the iPhone 6 suggests that the phone could come in variants of 16,64 and 128GB options with no 32GB version.

It’s hard to tell right now why the 32GB won’t be offered but we can see that information being confirmed with an official release that can happen anytime early next month. According to the leak, Toshiba and Hynix will provide the 16GB NAND flash chips. Hynix will also be responsible for a portion of the 64GB NAND chips alongside SanDisk. The largest, 128GB memory will carry Toshiba branding.

Does this make you feel good about having a 128GB or would you rather not pay more and get the 32GB?

This Is The Upcoming Moto X+1!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)The Moto X gained it’s popularity thanks to the ability to customize the phone and also courtesy of a lot of discounts that were made available by the company time and again.

It was clear that Motorola wanted to make sure they do not have dead stock before the successor comes out. Motorola has announced an event on September 4th at IFA where it will be announcing the X+1 alongwith the Moto G2 and Moto 360 officially. Famous leaker @evleaks leaked the above final press render of the Moto X+1 and it does look mature and industrial compared to the first version.

The almost bezel-free front adds to it. Like last time there is going to be a wood option and Verizon is going to carry the device as well.

Galaxy Note 3 Neo Gets Android KitKat Update!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)Samsung has just started rolling out the Android KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo in India. Post the update, the Note 3 Neo would run on KitKat 4.4.2.

The update is 495MB in size and by what we have learnt – you will have to connect your phone to a PC/Mac and download the update package via KIES. Make sure you backup your data incase anything goes wrong. Some people have already had success via OTA but incase there is no update notification yet on your phone, the PC method would almost always work.

Samsung says that the update would roll out in other regions soon enough.

Fully Assembled iPhone 6 Shown!

without comments

gsmarena_001We have some more images of the upcoming iPhone 6 – this time around the device is shown off in it’s “fully assembled” state.

We have seen plenty of images of the rear shell and the front panel of the phone before but this is the first time someone put them together. It is safe to assume that all parts look pretty much authentic in design and construction wise – it looks like we finally have nailed down on one design that is going to reach in the hands of the masses.

This seems to the be the 4.7 inch version, with the 5.5 inch one to follow the same design.

without comments

sharp_aquos_crystal_screenSharp – a manufacturer known for it’s Aquos series of televisions is launching the Aquos Crystal in the US. The Aqous Crystal will be available excursively via Sprint n the US at $239.99 off contract.

The highlight of Sharp’s new Aquos Crystal smartphone is the nearly bezel-free touchscreen on device. The smartphone also sports Harman Kardon audio technologies. Indeed, the phone looks gorgeous and bold – it’s design is very futuristic and the fact that Sharp and  not any other Tier 1 manufacturer managed to pull this off is a big deal.

The Sharp Aquos Crystal will be also available on Sprint’s prepaid brands Virgin Mobile (in Black) and Boost Mobile (in White). In both cases, the Aquos Crystal will be priced at $149.99. On the inside the phone is pretty mediocre – it has a 5″ 720p display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926) coupled with 1.5GB of RAM.  Internal storage is 8 GB which can be expanded to 128GB via microSD.

This is a great phone on paper thanks to it’s great design and pricing.

J-butterfly-HTL23-Butterfly-22HTC has announced another high end smartphone today – the successor to one of the first 1080p phones – HTC Butterfly 2/J Butterfly depending on your region.

The phone packs a Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13 MP Duo-camera interestingly. It still comes in at a resolution of 1920*1080p and has front facing Boomsound speakers as well. Another interesting addition is that this HTC’s first high end waterproof device which comes with a IP57 certification and it doesn’t even need flaps to cover the ports!

Apart we have 16/32GB memory onboard and a 5MP front facing camera with a 2700mAh battery. This phone is a great device since HTC has worked upon the mistakes they made with the One M8.

iPhone 6 To Have 1GB RAM, 2915mAh Battery!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (2)The latest iPhone 6 that comes out of China states that it may have just 1GB of RAM. These rumors come from where the iPhone 6 is apparently being mass manufactured.

To give you’ll a perspective the iPhone 5s and 5c both have 1GB of RAM as well and they work pretty much flawlessly. We also have news about the battery of the iPhone 6 that is pictured about giving us a number that reads 2915mAh – this will be the capacity of the battery powering the bigger of the two iPhones while the smaller 4.7 inch version will be powered by a 1810mAh one which if true will be disappointing.

September 9 is coming soon and we will find out then!

Verizon Adds A $60 Unlimited Plan Quietly!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)Verizon, also dubbed as the Big Red has added a new plan to it’s existing lineup. This new plan is of a single line type – that means u wont be able to share it’s data.

The $60 plan comes with 2GB of Data and Unlimited talk and text. Each additional GB would cost $15 over the 2GB limit. The plan would normally cost $60 but if you get a phone via Verizon’s edge installment plan then you get it for $50. It’s not everyday that you come across a plan from Verizon that is cheaper than the competition – $5 than AT&T’s offering.

If your communication needs fit in line with this plan, you should definitely take advantage of this.

New iPhone 6 Front Panel Shows Near Final Hardware!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (3)With more and more pieces of final hardware leaking online, we have a fair idea of how the iPhone 6 will look like. These new photos suggest that even though the size of the display would bump upto 4.7 inches, the phone would be perfectly usable with one hand.

These photos seem to be the real deal with markings like 6G. The iPhone  is expected to launch on September 9 with a better processor. The display on the iPhone 6 is expected to be protected by Sapphire which is very expensive to source . There were news stating that Apple had difficulty in sourcing the required amount of Sapphire for mass production but such issues seem to have been sorted now.

Stay with us for the latest updates on the iPhone 6.
