without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)HTC is planning a strong return to the WP party and this time around, it maybe planning something different. Rumors point towards HTC making a unique bootloader.

The HTC One(WP) is the rumored WP twin of the HTC One M8 and it would be carrying around the exact same design language. The high-end device is expected to debut in a few days, on August 19 in New York City. This photo is clear enough for us to take a look at it. The only real differentiation on the outside the Windows Phone logo below the HTC one.

Galaxy Note 4 To Have 4GB RAM, QuadHD Screen?!

without comments

att-note-3-review-3We will be seeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 officially before a months time but that doesnt stop retailers from posting tips about what the phone could actually bring.

Indonesian retailer Erafone has an early product page up for the Note 4, and offers a pretty comprehensive set of phone specifications. Those include things like a 5.7-inch quad HD display, 16MP main camera with optical stabilization, and a never-before-seen-in-a-phone 4GB of RAM. 

While 4GB of RAM may seem too much, with the way TouchWiz behaves, one may barely notice. Let’s see if this translates to reality.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Is Official, Apple – Your Move!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)Post disappointing sales in early 2014, Samsung had to change their product design and strategy as well. Today we have the much rumored Galaxy Alpha.

It certainly has many of the Galaxy S5 key selling features, while staking on more premium material such as aluminum. But it’s not another flagship, its a weird combination of what the S5 mini could be, maybe Samsung too is confused at this point but they needed this phone. The sides of the Galaxy Alpha are machined out of aluminum, while the back is made of metal.

It definitely looks much better and handsome now. But it isn’t much aggressive on specifications. It’s just got a 720p screen and the processor is an Exynos Octa- just like on the Galaxy S4. Rest of the specifications are more or less similar and they have even kept the fingerprint scanner intact. Such features make it Samsung’s representative of what the company wants to offer against something like the upcoming iPhone 6.

Galaxy Note 4 Leaks A Month Ahead Of Release!

without comments

note-4-gsm-1The Note series is Samsung’s bearer of technological innovations crunched into a phablet form factor. How will the Note 4 look like? Seems that folks from GSMArena managed to get something for the internet.

With its Unpacked event coming up at IFA 2014, the Note 4′s launch may only be weeks away, and despite all this talk of quad HD displays, next-gen SoCs, and maybe even some sort of curved display, the Note 4 is no short of surprises. The leaked device is bigger than the Note 3 and much square in shape – with design cues taken from the Galaxy Alpha that leaked recently.

The phone looks legit otherwise, the home button, stylus all look like they could be the real deal. But with renders and clones becoming the thing, one can never say!

This Is The iPhone 6′s Retail Box!

without comments

iphone6-2-900-90News about the iPhone 6 have started reaching a crazy new level. With the launch date nearing, we are getting in absurd stories about Apple’s upcoming phone.

A batch of recent snaps to appear online show what could be the most convincing yet. While the iPhone image on the box seems to be a genuine press image of the device – and the apps’ arrangement is consistent with the iPhone 5s’s apps arrangement.

iPhone-6-retail-boxThe dodgy quality of the shots doesnt make us give it 100% credibility or earn our confidence either. While some sources claim this could be a dummy taken too far off from the official dimensions and been recreated somewhere in China is also a possibility we cannot rule out. Things have just started getting interesting, Apple – your move!

55% iPhone Buyers Find The 4.7inch Screen Perfect!

without comments

BtCTGSLCcAAJb9-Debates about the ideal size of an iPhone are debatable but there is not perfect answer to this. By now it’s certain that the next iPhone will have a bigger display, so what do people think about it?

A recent polls show that the current format does not satisfy the majority of iPhone users: more than a half are ready to switch to a 4.7-inch Apple flagship. According to the survey conducted by the iMore resource, almost 55% of respondents identified the 4.7-inch screen as perfect for the new iPhone. At the same time 29.81% considered the 5.5 inches diagonal appropriate.

According to the Tavis McCourt study results, this year in March 33% of iPhone owners in the United States agreed to pay extra $ 100 to get a smartphone with a larger screen. Incase Apple misses out on bringing a larger screen, then it would fail at bringing lots of potential Android users onboard.

Moto X+1 Launching On September 25 Apparently!

without comments

wood_moto_x_bamboo-631x618The Moto X+1 has been often rumored but no official word had been given on it’s launch just yet. According to some unnamed sources, it should land at Verizon “by September 25″.

Motorola has spread the word that we should be expecting the successor to the Moto X sometime in late summer. This date is close enough since summer ends on September 22. This could also mean that the launch could be before September 25. Verizon is definitely going to have it, but other some other carriers too.

The Moto X+1 is expected to come with a Snapdragon 801 and 2GB of RAM.

Xiaomi Mi3 Now Get’s A Green Color!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)Xiaomi has been selling the Mi3 like hot cakes in Asia lately, specially in India where it started selling online exclusively via Flipkart – an online etailer which has made it even difficult to go hands on one.

This will be added to the current line of Mi 3 devices that includes White, Gray, Black, Yellow, Pink, Blue and Gold. However, the only downside is that this color is available in the 16GB variant. Other specifications remain the same, the front remains the same black glass with the difference only noticeable on the sides and the back panel.

The new color should help the Xiaomi Mi 3 stay fresh a bit longer as the company gears to release theXiaomi Mi 4 in Q3 of this year. Does this make the Mi3 more desirable according to you?
