Every day seems to bring a new rumor or leak on the LG G3, with the latest scoop having revealed actual screenshots from LG’s upcoming flagship. Well, this day is no different – it looks like shops in China have already begun selling cases that are allegedly for the G3, and pictures of these cases have appeared online. Since we’re considerably far from an official announcement of the G3 (it’s expected to be unveiled in late May or early June), this shouldn’t exactly be taken too seriously. But in case these...

The HTC Desire 601 is now getting the coveted Android 4.4 update along with the Sense 5.5 UI. This is one of HTC’s midrange handsets that broke cover last year, so it’s good to know that HTC hasn’t forgotten its older handsets. The update is rolling out in stages, so it might not appear on all devices immediately. The dual-SIM variant of the Desire 601 should get the update soon as well. As far as the changelog is concerned, expect changes related to BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe, Video Highlights and much more. It will also come...

IFTTT is now available on Android. IFTTT originally launched only on iOS several months ago, but now Android users can have the service on their devices. For those unfamiliar, IFTTT (If This Then That) can automate your online presence for you. An example is if you take a photo on Instagram, you can get it automatically pushed to Flickr. Or if you leave a certain location, you can automatically send a text message to someone of your choosing. These actions are called “recipes”, which you set up through “triggers”...

The Moto X and the Moto G feature a relatively stock version of Android which has been widely praised by the customers. And according to VP of Software over at Motorola, Punit Soni, the company will continue this trend going forward. This is excellent news for fans of Motorola who can expect more stock Android running smartphones launching in the future. Soni also mentioned that the company will look to emphasize on the camera of its future smartphones and not just limit the software to do its job. So expect beefy camera sensors to come...

Once Samsung, HTC, Sony and LG threw down their proverbial gauntlets earlier this year, everybody assumed the coast would be clear for the four to duke it out amongst themselves for the Android crown through the summer at the very least. But boy, were we wrong. Up-and-coming Oppo was the first to try to crack the elite, which they may well succeed if distribution isn’t a problem, and absolute rookie OnePlus is on the verge of remodeling conventional tech business models with a unique blend of affordability, cutting-edge performance...

It’s no secret Motorola means business in spite of an impending Lenovo acquisition with still hard to guess ramifications, as an eclectic blend of ultra-affordable Moto devices and high-enders have been tipped of late for 2014 introductions. The leathery X+1, LTE-enabled G and dirt-cheap E are among these forthcoming potential box-office hits, with Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini follow-ups also implied. And let’s not forget the 360, Motorola’s first foray into the booming wearable market sector and one of the first smartwatches...

Early this month @evleaks announced on Twitter that the Kyocera Brigadier would be arriving on Verizon. No further details were given about the device and it was not known then if this would be a featurephone or a smartphone. What’s known is that this will be another rugged phone just like the other offerings of the company which will be able to withstand water and dust. A fresh Twitter post of @evleaks now shows the front and back photo of the Kyocera Brigadier which we can now say is an Android device. It looks pretty tough and has...

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi announced that it will be expanding to 10 new countries this year. The company is best known for offering high quality products at affordable prices and is even outselling Apple in China. It’s been quite successful so far that when the company releases a product in the market it gets sold out in a matter of minutes. With former Google executive Hugo Barra in charge of expansion the company now plans to increase its production capacity and expand to new markets. Unfortunately for those living in the US...
