The leaks regarding the new Nexus 9 tablet that HTC and Google have been working on are getting aggressive day by day.  And now it’s pretty much official – as official as it can be without a press release from Google and HTC, of course.

The above image is a real photograph of the back of the Nexus 9. The Nexus 9 would be sporting a 2560*1440 p display with a Tegra K1 Chip powering the device. HTC’s stereo speakers and an 8 MP rear camera. The tablet recently got scanned through the FCC certifications.

Some big Google announcements are coming soon!

Android L On Galaxy S5!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)Samsung Galaxy S5 is still the OEMs flagship device and this time around Samsung is facing pressure from everyone regarding their lousy approach to Android updates.

SamMobile has got an image from Samsung which is an early leaked build and the aim was to see how far and wide Samsung has gone to abide by the material design guidelines – and as it turns out – everything looks just the same. Yes, Samsung keeps its TouchWiz UI ahead of all and it is really hard to see Material Design in action over here.

gsmarena_003The lockscreen does see the new notifications but everything else is just the same – animations aren’t working yet, the “sense of depth” that Google spoke about is yet to be seen from TouchWiz. Initial responses from S5 owners also depict the same amount of dissatisfaction for this.

While it’s great to see Samsung work well to stay on the dates, we hope Samsung unleashes all theyve got to offer very soon!

So Close To The Nexus 6!

without comments

gsmarena_001As we get closer to the announcement, we see clear hints of the upcoming Nexus 6. The high-end device from Motorola is expected to debut at some point in the second half of October.

The above render is as close as we have been to the Nexus 6. As we can see it looks like the device would be coming with a new layout and improved icons. A new addition would be a folder for Google Drive and its suite of editing apps alongwith it. The latest rumor confirms a few specs about the device, they include Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC, 5.9” QHD display with 496ppi, 13MP camera, and front-facing stereo speakers.

Additionally the Nexus 6 would be very close to the new Moto X in design, only a bit taller.

Minecraft On Your Smartwatch Is Amazeballs!

without comments

minecraft.watch_.app_

A Youtuber has used his Galaxy Gear live and manually installed Minecraft pocket edition. Since the Gear live runs on a respectable Snapdragon 400 with 512MB of RAM, it wouldn’t be impossible by any means to have it up and running. What’s even more impressive is that Minecraft’s interface adapts so well to the square 320×320 1.65-inch screen – with a little squinting and a few careful taps, it looks like Corbin can play pretty handily.

Have any interesting use case of smartwatches to share? Leave them in the comments below!

Android 5.0 “Layer Cake” On Its Way?!

without comments

google-cakeGoogle’s new version of Android – Android 5.0 L is just around the corner for its public release. Ever since KitKat, people have been coming ip with various theories about what the next version is called, definitely not “L”.

Today we see the above two pictures that come as GIF courtesy of Google celebrating their 16th birthday. What makes us think this is merely another photo and not some sign? Well as Phandroid wisely notes, who puts lollipops on a cake? Another theory states that it maybe called “Layer cake” which may also be a fair possibility here.

With a little more patience and luck we’ll get to know which flavor we are looking at over here!

Galaxy Note 4 Up For Pre-orders!

without comments

gsmarena_001 (1)The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a hot device. It is the benchmark for any phablet sized device. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is hitting the US on October 14, but you can already pre-order the phablet on both AT&T and T-Mobile. Starting yesterday Sprint has also joined the campaign.

Sprint is willing to sell you a Galaxy Note 4 for $720 if you are willing to buy it off contract. However if you are to sign a 2-year commitment Sprint is reducing the price to $350, $50 higher than what the largest GSM carrier in the States charges. A third option is available with Sprint where the customer would pay nothing upfront, but would divide the amount into $30 payments over a period of 24 months.

Are you planning to get the best phablet out there? Let us know!
