Leaks about the upcoming Nexus 9 tablet have become commonplace these days, especially the ones coming via benchmark listings. But this new revelation from AnTuTu suggests something we didn’t know before - the availability of a cellular variant. This particular benchmark listing seems to have an IMEI number for the device, which is only given to devices with cellular connectivity. While it’s not really a surprise that the Nexus 9 would have an LTE model, we are learning this for the very first time. The 2013 Nexus 7 had...

According to supply chain sources, Google could be looking to unveil a 5.2 inch Nexus smartphone later this year. Earlier reports have pegged that the Nexus X will be launching this year sporting a 5.9 inch display. But Google apparently is also looking to develop a 5.2 inch smartphone that Motorola is currently testing. This could either mean that the 5.9 inch Nexus X could be replaced by this one, or that Google is working on two smartphones of varying sizes. The latter would make sense, given how enormously the phablet segment has...

There has been plenty of talk about the upcoming Nexus 9 tablet from HTC. And some of these reports have mentioned that the tablet will be packing NVIDIA’s top of the line Tegra K1 SoC. And a new benchmark listing coming from CPU-Z has reaffirmed these reports with the tablet shown to be running the said chipset with a clock speed of 2.5 GHz. The Tegra K1 is believed to be a lot powerful compared to the current crop of mobile SoCs, particularly in the graphics department. So it’s clear that Google is looking for the best...

The existence of Android L is no secret to us as Google made it public back in June. However, the company never really told us what its final name will be, leaving much to our imagination. And now a new benchmark result coming from the famed leakster TK Tech News confirms that the upcoming Android release will be known as Android 5.0. It has been said that the new version of Android will be known as Lemon Meringue Pie, following the tradition of naming new Android versions after desserts (alphabetically). The benchmark listing also reveals...

According to a report from The Information, Amazon is in final stages of talks with the makers of Twitch for a potential acquisition. This comes a few weeks after Google was believed to have offered $1 billion to acquire the popular gaming service. But for some reason which is yet unknown, talks seem to have fallen apart. There is no disclosure on how close Amazon and Twitch are to inking this deal but it is said that it’s at a “late stage“. And given Amazon’s continued interest in entering the gaming segment,...

Google’s upcoming Nexus smartphone is widely believed to be known as the Nexus 6, although the company hasn’t confirmed this yet. But a new report suggests that Google might be looking to avoid that name fearing copyright infringement from the publishers of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which is a book published back in 1968. The novel has the mention of Nexus-6, which could raise potential trademark infringement issues for Google. And to evade these concerns, Google will apparently call the smartphone Nexus X. Motorola...

As we all know, the HTC Nexus 9 is the much awaited successor to last year’s Nexus 7 tablet. With precedence given to premium quality materials and hardware this time, this tablet has already made the rounds around the internet. And now, a new revelation made by @upleaks suggests that the tablet will break cover before the 9th of October. However, there are no specific details beyond this. The Nexus 9 is expected to feature an all aluminum unibody design with an 8.9 inch QHD display, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, an 8-megapixel camera...

We saw a pretty sweet deal on the 2013 Nexus 7 earlier this week where the tablet was being offered for just $102.99 with a couple of discounts combined. And today, we have another deal on the tablet, which doesn’t offer the same amount of savings as the earlier listing, but offers a great deal nonetheless. The 16GB model of the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet is being sold for $129.99 through woot.com. Unfortunately, the deal is only valid until the end of the day. Given the pricing, it is likely that the device might go out of stock...
