This new video shows that the R watch is all about it’s round display. The South Korean electronics giant is to launch this watch at IFA and regrading which they already have a video published on their YouTube account. In addition to taking its design cues from traditional wrist timepieces, the new LG smartwatch appears to be following the lead of Motorola, which was teased at Google’s I/O developer conference in June.
The R watch will cover up all the things people complained about the G watch. Are you excited about this or the Moto 360?
China Telecom is Apple’s largest seller in Asia went ahead an posted the above on it’s its official Weibo account. The post has since been deleted, but the delay was still enough for it to be copied and shared all over the web. The post does show the iPhone 6 in three colors and another piece of information includes the availability of LTE, 3G , CDMA and GSM networks in China.
September 9 is when the iPhone 6 debut is scheduled so we’ll keep you updated.
The rumor mill is going full speed and today we are getting some more details on the reported Samsung Gear 3. Sources “familiar with the hardware” tell PocketNow the new device will come with a longer (more rectangular) curved display. It would be similar to the Gear Fit‘s screen, except much less extreme in its rectangular shape.
In the end nothing is official till it’s announced, let’s wait for September 3
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?
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.
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.
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.
Sharp – 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.
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.
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!
