As quoted by an interviewer at CNET “ He(Greg Sullivan) confirmed that Lumia as a brand would continue under Microsoft, but refused to confirm whether the Nokia name would survive on phones too. But a Microsoft spokesperson has since told me that the handset division of Nokia will continue to make phones under Microsoft, phones with Nokia logos on”
Microsoft’s acquisition of the finish phone manufacturer is due to complete in the first quarter of 2014 after which there will be a definitive answer to Nokia’s fate!

The Moto G launched earlier this month across the Indian subcontinent and it is indeed selling at hot cakes! The company further plans to capture developing markets like these and offer its flaghsip for a very competitive price to the masses.
Are you excited for the Moto X to arrive to your country?
The Desire 816 has a big 5.5″ 720p IPS Display, a 1.6GHz Snapdrgon 400 and 1.5GB of RAM and also an interesting microSD expansion of upto 128GB! HTC is also giving a 5 MP wide-angle front camera and a solid 13MP f2.2 lens on the back, which to say is better than the one of the HTC One. The HTC Desire 816 will arrive in white, black, red, yellow and purple colour variants.
Are you excited for this device?
So here it is folks, Samsung has just officially announced the Galaxy S5 at Barcelona, MWC 2014. The phone now has a whole new look and revamped specs, so without any further adieu let’s take a rundown on the specs :
Samsung Galaxy S5 specs
|Display||5.1-inch Super AMOLED, Full HD (1920 x 1080), 432 ppi|
|Processor||2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 or 2.1Ghz Exynos Octa-core (depending on market)
Adreno 330, unspecified GPU in Exynos variant
|Cameras||16 MP rear LED flash with ISOCELL and 4K recording (limited to 5min), 2.1 MP front|
|Networks||3G, LTE Cat. 3 2X2 MIMO|
|Connectivity||GPS, GLONASS, microUSB, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE|
|Dimensions||142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm,
|Colors||Black White, Blue, Gold|
|Waterproof and dust resistant||Rated IP67 – USB port covered with plastic flap|
So the device now has a perforated rubber back panel to give better grip to the user, new additions include a standard IP67 certification of dust and water resistance. What was rumored enough was the addition of either thei fingerprint or the Iris sensor and the fingerprint sensor has made it onboard!
Touchwiz is now revamped quite a lot, with what Samsung says most “relevant” content. The overall design is now flat, more than ever. Aside from the usual colors, there will 2 variants of the Galaxy S5 : One with the Snapdragon 801 and one with the Octa-core Exynos CPU.
There are three devices in the Nokia X family: the Nokia X, the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL. The X and X+ both have four inch, 800 x 480 screens and 3MP camera. The XL has a 5 inch display, a 5MP rear facing camera and a 2MP a front facing camera. One of the differences between the X and X+ is that the X+ has more memory (768 MB of RAM compared to 512MB). All three phones are dual SIM and use 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processors.
These devices wont see US markets any soon since Nokia is aiming these devices at developing countries and does not want to focus in mature markets.
The Xperia Z2 had received, by far, the best leaked treatment of a total of 12 minutes in a video that we had reposted here. Today, at MWC 2014. A first look at the device might not suggest a major revamp, but it is rocking quite some neat upgrades internally.
From whatever we know, the specifics are as follows :
- 5.2-inch Full HD Live Color LED display (1920 x 1080) with TRILUMINOS and X-Reality technology
- 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU
- 3GB of RAM
- 20.7MP 1/2.3-type EXMOR RS CMOS with G Lens, CMOS image, BIONZ for mobile
- 4K video capture (3840×2160 pixels/30p) with SteadyShot image stabiliization
- Digital noise-cancelling technology for an immersive audio experience
- 3200 mAh battery
- IP55/IP58 rating – waterproof and dustproof
- 4G LTE support
- Android 4.4 KitKat with Sony features on top
Yes 4K recording and an improved LIVE LED display top them all, following a better Snapdragon 801. The camera seems to be using the same optics as the Xperia Z1.
The Talkband B1 sure looks a lot more like a fitness tracker than anything like the Gear 2. The TalkBand B1, as Huawei calls it, also behaves much like such a tracker, measuring footsteps, monitoring sleeping patterns, and letting you record calories – essentially aiming directly at the fitbit fitness tracker.
The trick that the Talkband has under it’s sleve is that the display pops out and acts as a wireless Bluetooth earpiece. With a price of around $140 or 100 Euros, expect this device to be available this quarter.
We all are THIS close to Nokia’s announcement of the Nokia codenamed Normandy and man these leaks! Come Monday, that handset should take its place on stage for the world to see, but a new rumor suggests that it could be just the tip of the iceberg, and Nokia may have a pair of additional Android-based smartphones still in development.
The issue is though, as much as we want these rumors to turn true, we don’t know how much the base Nokia X is true, again, all we can say is keep your fingers crossed for this event!
With MWC just around the corner , leaks are an interesting set of events that are much expected. Samsung is nailing double down on wearables and the next iteration of the Galaxy Gear watches are about to see the light of the day.
The one on the left is the more premium one as is clearly visible what is interesting is another, Galaxy Gear Neo which is featured on the right – well, that’s anyone’s guess, for now, but perhaps it’s a cheaper version of the Gear 2, with more basic specs. We’re just weeks away from Samsung’s Unpacked event that has 5 written all over it. So let’s wait and see how much of this get’s official and whatever hasn’t yet been leaked!

A trend that Apple started has now sort of become the standard amongst flagship devices – golden and silver phone bodies. Just yesterday we saw a golden render of the All New HTC One and today comes Samsung on similar lines.
GSMArena obtained a snapshot of the Vodafone’s inventory system, which confirms that the mobile carrier will indeed be selling a gold version of Samsung’s upcoming flagship: the Galaxy S5.
