Qualcomm’s 64-bit chipset, the Snapdragon 615 will be landing on smartphones later this year, if the company’s Weibo page is anything to go by. The Snapdragon 615 is a 64-bit octa-core chipset based on the ARM Cortex-A53 architecture and could mostly be used in midrange offerings. It is said that smartphones running on this chip could be launched as soon as next month at the IFA event, although there’s no confirmation of that yet. Qualcomm also has the Snapdragon 610 chipset, which is based on the same CPU architecture,...

Verizon’s variant of the HTC One Max smartphone is now getting Sense 6.0, much longer after the unlocked variants got the update. This UI was first introduced with the One M8 back in March and has been included in almost every HTC device that has launched since then, including a handful of midrange smartphones. So there was no hardware limitation restricting the One Max phablet from getting the update. The Android version won’t be changed however, but users will be welcomed to a complete visual overhaul nonetheless. Apart...

The timing may seem a bit off (actually, way off), with all the Moto 360s, second-gen LG G Watches, third-gen Sony SmartWatches and rookie Asus Android Wear efforts around the corner. But you know how things go in the tech world, and particularly in a niche as hot as the wearable sector. There’s always something better, cooler, stronger on the horizon, and if you keep holding off for “the next big thing”, you’ll end up constantly on the lookout and never satisfied. Besides, in a way, the timing is ideal to round up the best existing...

The Oppo N1 from last year was quite popular with its unique swiveling camera technology, which meant that the rear camera could also double as the front facing camera. And it seems like Sony is coming up with something similar, but with an odd looking shape. What you see above is supposedly a standalone camera based on Android, packing a 3 inch display as a viewfinder. But unlike the Oppo N1, the sensor on this camera swivels sideways and not vertically. But fundamentally, the concept is pretty much the same. The design is not something...

A leak coming from an anonymous source has confirmed the hardware of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 smartphone. This appears to be in sync with what we’ve heard in the past before, so this could be the real deal. The image shows the device to be packing a 6 inch 720p display, a 1.5 GHz quad core processor, an 8-megapixel camera on the back along with a 2.1-megapixel front camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,800 mAh battery. The image also reveals that the device comes with VoLTE support, which is a rather unexpected feature on a midrange...

As expected, Sprint has finally made its new family plan official which gives users 20GB of data to spend every month for $100. Families can add up to 10 lines to eat off their data bucket, so this is ideal if you live in a large social circle. This revised plan will be available starting August 22 and will last until the end of 2015. For a limited period, Sprint is also offering an extra 2GB per line in addition to the 20GB of shared data, so there’s plenty to be excited about if you’re a Sprint user. The only caveat here...

It looks like owners of the HTC One M8 on Verizon are in for an extended wait for the Android 4.4.3 update. HTC’s US president, Jason Mackenzie, has revealed on Twitter that the update has been pushed back to mid-September in order to give the software team time to fix a GPS issue. Oddly, a GPS issue was fixed on T-Mobile’s M8 and pushed out along with the 4.4.3 update yesterday, so we’re guessing the bug was found later on the Verizon variant. Android 4.4.3 will bring mostly security and bug fixes, along with improvements...
