We’ve been speculating about the launch and hardware of the Moto X successor for quite a few months now. And all this while, we were under the impression that the device would be known as the Moto X+1. However, a leaked Verizon document contradicts this theory by mentioning the upcoming Motorola flagship as the “The new Moto X”. This makes sense as we’ve only recently encountered a Moto G leak which suggested a similar naming pattern for the handset. Going by this, it’s fair to assume that we will be looking...

The Moto G successor is expected to break cover in a few days from now. And as we head towards the announcement, it’s only natural to come across leaks giving us a better idea of the device. This new image, supposedly accessed from Indian retailer Flipkart shows us the alleged retail packaging of the device, but the device is still mentioned as the Moto G. Perhaps Motorola took this step to avoid familiarity with the LG G2, which is the Korean manufacturer’s flagship from 2013. It is likely that Motorola will simply call...

In the midst of all the flagships that are preparing to break cover over the next week, midrange devices are not given much love. But Verizon has managed to grab our attention by announcing a rare midrange offering from Motorola known as the Luge. The smartphone is essentially a re-branded version of the Droid Razr M from 2012, but for prepaid customers of Verizon. The price tag is quite decent at $199.99 without no contractual obligations, so Verizon is clearly going to attract a lot of attention from this new offering. The Motorola...

It’s well within the public domain that the second gen Moto G will be shown off during the company’s September 4 event in Chicago. However, there were little to no details on what to expect from this new midrange offering. But thanks to a leak from HelloMotoHK, we’re getting an early look at what to expect next Thursday. From this varied set of images, it’s clear that the Moto G2 will sport front facing speakers, much like what we saw on the Moto E a few months ago. The camera on the back is said to be an...

Sprint’s version of the Moto X smartphone is now getting the Android 4.4.4 update, a couple of weeks after the carrier started sending the update through a soak test. Customers can see the usual set of changes with the update including the addition of the Motorola Alert app by default. The smartphone is also getting an all new dialer as well as some improvements to the camera app such as the ability to pause video recording and better camera exposure for images. But overall, the UI will remain relatively unchanged so don’t...

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...

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...

Thanks to what is considered a retirement gift from Evleaks, we have now managed to ascertain that the Verizon branded Moto X+1 will pack the unpopular Verizon Messages bloatware app. This is no surprise given the carrier’s history with pushing many of its own apps on smartphones over the years. Fortunately, it is said that the app will be removable by the user, so customers will not have to bear with it on their app drawer if they don’t want it there. In the past, we’ve seen that Verizon apps cannot be removed without...
