Galaxy Note Edge Is The Most Futuristic Looking Phone!

gsmarena_103Samsung and leaks go hand in hand but for once Samsung came up with something that we totally weren’t expecting. A Note like device with a curved screen on one edge, called the Galaxy Note Edge.

So the Galaxy Note Edge is every bit a Galaxy Note 4 with it’s specifications, design, choice of materials and even the display resolution. It even carries the S Pen along with it with all its added functionality. The biggest and weirdest part being the curve on the right that bleeds over the right edge enabling and unlocking a part of the phone that one never is used to having as a part or an extension of the screen.

Users will be able to check the news, launch apps, and do much more on that added screen real estate. It all looks interesting right now, although we are yet to see how heavy it will be on the pricing and how much of practical use will one be able to suck out from it.

Sony’s Lens Style Unit Takes Your Existing Lenses!

bigThis is the successor to last years QX lens-style camera. This was originally intended to take the photo taking experience and quality on smartphones to a semi-pro level.

Unfortunately thanks to Sony’s poor implementation of software, the overall picture taking experience was close to a disaster. But Sony isn’t leaving the line-up yet. What we see today is the new QX lens – the successor to the old lens. This lens however is different in a way that it would not be coming with a lens module attached. Just like a mirrorless camera, it would take on exisitng E-mount camera lenses on – which is great for anyone who has heavily invested in the Sony lineup of lenses.

According to sources from SonyAlphaRumors the QX1 will be unveiled tomorrow alongside the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact and a duo of wearables.

4.7″ Apple iPhone 6 Shown With Working Display!

gsmarena_001 (1)The Apple iPhone 6 is the companies worst kept secret yet. We now have the bits and pieces of leaks that were left out.

This is the first time we are seeing a non-dummy iPhone 6 with a working display. It is not easy to draw conclusions regarding the colors of the device it’s either a white or gold version. iOS 8 is what we are seeing on the lockscreen which we believe will mark the end of it’s Beta stage with the launch of the iPhone 6.

The smartphone will apparently be featuring a 4.7″ IPS LCD with a 960 x 1704 pixel resolution, 2GB of RAM and dual-core 2GHz 64-bit processor – Apple’s A8 processor.

Apple iPhone 6 Will Carry NFC This Time!

iphone6-nfcApple likes to stay conservative and at times really slow to implement new features – specially hardware until they are really sure about something.

It’s been a couple of years Android has been rocking NFC and to an extent it does make life simple and even though it may not replace something it is good to have. The tiny chip in the image above is supposedly it, an NFC controller from NXP Semiconductors. It is intended to give the iPhone 6 the ability to conduct wireless payments, simplify device pairing, and facilitate content sharing between devices.

NFC isn’t huge yet, but if Apple manages to pull off something crazy, it would be awesome indeed!

HTC One E8 Available On Sprint For $99.99!

HTC_One_E8_family_blog-headerWe had news about the HTC One E8 making it’s way to Sprint a couple of days ago and now the carrier has announced that the phone is up for order.

The colors available are polar white or misty grey and can be order from Sprint’s website. A traditional two-year contract would cost you $99.99. If you want to use Sprint’s Easy Pay installment plan, you shell out nothing upfront, then followed by 23 monthly payments of $20.84 and a final 24th payment of $20.67.

This is a great alternative if you don’t want to opt for the bigger brother M8 which is available for $200 on contract.
