Motorola is known for its Moto X and Moto G smartphones since recently. However, the company is also widely popular for its Maxx series of smartphones launched exclusively under the Droid brand by Verizon. And it seems like Motorola could soon have a global version of the popular Maxx smartphone for all, according to a trademark listing. The company has trademarked the Moto Maxx moniker with the USPTO, suggesting that a Moto X like offering could be in the making. Of course, being a Maxx device would either mean it has a massive display...

HTC has scheduled an event for the 19th of August in New York City, hinting at a product launch. Our first guess is that this will be a Nexus tablet as rumors have long suggested, but it is possible that HTC will also show off a Windows Phone handset during the event. Whatever the agenda is for the event, we’ll keep a close eye on it to bring you the latest as it unfolds. The Nexus 8 was originally expected to be unveiled during the Google I/O, but we didn’t get to hear about it. Considering that it’s almost been an...

The Sony Xperia Z3 is expected to be shown off in September during the IFA event. The handset is also believed to be accompanied by a ‘mini’ variant of itself known as the Xperia Z3 Compact. A new leak is now showing this handset from multiple angles, giving us a brief look at what’s to come.

The smartphone is expected to pack a 4.6 inch 1080p display, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, a 20.7-megapixel...

The Meizu MX4 could have the slimmest front bezels of any smartphone we’ve seen so far, if a leaked front panel of the handset is anything to go by. Meizu is a relatively unknown OEM outside China, but widely popular in its home country. The front panel here is compared with a Sony Xperia device to give us a better idea of how slim the bezels actually are. There’s no word on the screen size, but it’s clear that users will be able to make the most of the display real estate thanks to this design. Like Xiaomi, Meizu is...

T-Mobile has just announced a new midrange offering from Samsung known as the Galaxy Avant. Considering that it’s a budget handset, buyers will only have to shell out $214 full retail or $9 per month for a period of two years through the carrier’s monthly installment plan. The smartphone has a 4.5 inch 960 x 540 display, a quad core 1.2 GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and 4G LTE. This is essentially a carrier rebranded version of the...

A new report is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone will be shown off to the world on the 4th of August. This is contrary to previous reports which hinted at a September release of the handset. But given that the Galaxy Alpha is merely a midrange offering, it won’t make sense for the device to share the stage with the Galaxy Note 4. As we all know by now, the Galaxy Alpha is supposed to be a midrange offering with the design of a more premium Galaxy flagship. It is believed to come equipped with a fingerprint scanner...
