Nokia’s Lumia 520 was the world’s cheapest Windows Phone and it really outsold all of the Lumia’s collectively. What we have here is a possible Lumia 530 – a revision to the cheapest Lumia, but now with Windows Phone 8.1.
Since there would be WP 8.1 on-board, there would be on screen buttons instead of hardware keys. There is also no sign of a front facing camera yet. The new Lumia 530 is expected to be running on a better Snapdragon 200 with 512 MB of RAM. The display is slightly bigger from 4 inches to 4.3 inches.
Rumored pricing says it will cost $179, so let’s hold for a few more days.
What’s great is that T-Mobile’s version doesn’t ruin the phone by over using T-Mobile branding. It wasn’t officially mentioned that they would start shipping soon but we don’t see anyone complaining for this. It is possible that for normal orders, customers might have to wait for a week or so.
If you have pre-ordered the T-mobile G3, make sure to let us know what you think about it!
A Youtuber has got hold of a leaked component that he claims is from the iPhone 6 assembly itself. The part he has showcased happens to be the Sapphire glass that would cover the display of the iPhone 6.
This confirms that the iPhone 6 will have a 4.7 inch display. The scratch test show that the iPhone 6 will have a hell of a durable display. The flexibility and durability of the display unit is also put to the test when the torturer bends the unit and it doesn’t creak or shatter.This is definitely good news for Apple and it’s consumers.
Apple being Apple would market it in their own way and make the iPhone 6 a huge success which such components, that is what we believe.
Sony has been one of the OEMs that have a sort of reverse strategy when it comes to the US. Usually US sees phones arrive to them first then the rest of the world, but this is not the case when it comes to Sony. While rumors of a Z3 have already started, they might have just missed a huge opportunity in terms of sales. Nevertheless, the Z1 Compact is a hot phone.
If you are interested, head here to visit Sony’s store for a $258 purchase.
Xiaomi is a Chinese OEM famous for it’s famous aftermarket ROM called MIUI. They also manufacture phones but now they are taking over India – a country that has attracted a lot of eyeballs lately for a variety of low-mid range smartphones.
It is hard to believe, Xiaomi is planning to sell it’s flagship Mi3 for just $250 in the Indian market and will go on sale on July 15. From the pricing it is difficult to tell but what you are getting for that price is gold – a 5 inch 1080p phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB Internal storage and a 13 MP rear camera with a 2MP front camera and a 3050mAh battery with MIUI on Android 4.3.
Some of those specs are even better than the Nexus 5 for an even better price, your thoughts?
To start off the phone is really mediocre at best when it comes to processing power, the real show stopper is a front facing 5MP camera with LED flash. To enhance the selfie taking experience, Sony has added a lot of software features to make you look better. The phone has a 5.5 inch 720p Triluminous display. A quad-core snapdragon processor with 1 GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory with expansion.
It has a LED on the front too and KitKat 4.4.2 onboard but it is isn’t waterproof.
Sony is announcing a new phone tomorrow that it wants to sell just for a feature that would help click high quality selfies. Sony shared the image above with the tagline “see your #selfies in a whole new light,” more than confirming the existence of such a device. The phone would be called the Xperia C3, we do not know the exact internal specifications of the Xperia C3 but from what we see in leaks, it has a rare front-facing LED flash alongwith a selfie assisting voice software for rear camera selfies.
Nokia’s Lumia is a great series when it comes to hardware since it has witnessed some of the most crazy innovations from a 41MP camera to a $99 smartphone. But there has been one consistently unanswered question everyone seems to ask – Android on a Lumia?
There were rumors of a an Android powered Lumia anlongside the 1020 and fast forward to today, we have a similar tip from @evleaks who states that there is an Android powered Lumia in works by “Nokia by Microsoft”. There are no other hardware details and it is expected to be so. This might just be in the conception phase but this is great news for everyone. Lumias are really handsome devices, if they ran Android it would be a compelling package indeed.
What do you’ll think? Which Lumia would you like to have Android on it?
Apple has called for assistance of Patrick Pruniaux, Tag Heuer’s Sales & Retail Vice President. Another source has confirmed that Patrick is leaving Tag to work with Apple on this particular project. This is particularly to make sure that the iWatch is a smashing success and will be working close to marketing and positioning the product to suit it’s audience.
The iWatch however is not seen as a threat to any Swiss watch manufacturer, infact and they believe that luxury watch sales should be unaffected by it. What do you have to say about Apple sourcing people from outside, do they lack the necessary expertise for a new segment or is this just to market it better?
We know most of what we are expecting from Apple this year - there are going to be two versions of the iPhone – both are known as the iPhone 6. Two credible reports now seem to confirm that these phones would launch on September 19th.
While, a new source is claiming that the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. Apparently the smaller 4.7inch version is the iPhone 6 and the bigger 5.5inch version will be called the iPhone Air. Again, this report claims a September 15th announcement. There are also additional rumors of an iPad Pro in the works – one for content creation professionals.
Even if these names don’t follow common naming convention, the dates seem practical. Which product are you expecting apart from the iPhone 6? An iWatch maybe?
