In addition there are hints of a Bluetooth accessory that is going to be announced at the event.

Stay tuned we’ll be bringing to you all the action as and when it happens.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Is Official, Apple – Your Move!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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?

There will also be a newer version of Sony’s lens style camera accessory – a successor to the QX10 and QX 100. Interestingly there is an all-in-one PC too that may dual boot Windows and Android as well.

Woah, Samsung Is Manufacturing A Phone With A Felxible Display!

samsung-youm-flexible-oled-phone-tablet-conceptSamsung first patented a smartphone with a three sided-flexible display back in April, post which there was no movement seen by the company on harnessing this tech in smartphones.

Now sounds like a time that would make us think if Samsung is thinking to use these in the Galaxy Note 4. The screen is reportedly built on a plastic substrate that’s difficult to work with and only limited numbers will be available at first. The new Note cannot be a low volume device by any means.

There were rumors of two versions of the Note 4 – one of them with a conventional screen and the other could be this one. We’ll soon find out.

gsmarena_001 (1)The Xperia Z1 that is sold internationally has already got it’s KitKat 4.4.2 update back in march, but people using the T-mobile Z1s weren’t lucky enough to have it till now.

Today T-mobile has got the KitKat 4.4.4 update for the Xperia Z1S rolling – which is currently the latest version of Android. To update, unfortunately you need a computer with Sony’s PC Companion software installed, as this isn’t an over-the-air rollout. Your phone will probably notify you about it but urge you to connect it to a computer.

Among the many new changes, the new software brings with it a new launcher, new themes, a customized keyboard, transparent navigation and status bars.
