When HTC announced the Desire 510 packing 4G LTE, it was almost inevitable that the device would break cover in the U.S. as well. And now, four carriers of the country have been confirmed to be selling the midrange HTC offering soon, but with no details on the pricing as of yet. The aforementioned carriers have launched several midrange smartphones in the past, so it’s no surprise that the Desire 510 is being launched as well. There was no mention of a specific date as to when these carriers will announce the availability...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is the company’s recently unveiled AMOLED display offering, making it one of the best looking tablets in the market today. And if you’ve been wanting to get one of these babies for yourself, you’ll be pleased to know that Amazon is offering a sweet deal on the 16GB model in white with the price waived off by almost $54, bringing it down to just $446.40. The black model of the tablet is still retailing for $500, so this deal is only applicable on this particular color variant. The model...

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...

AT&T has begun the rollout of Android 4.4.3 for its version of the HTC One M8. This comes after T-Mobile and Sprint started rolling out the update to the device a few weeks ago. AT&T is also expected to be rolling out the Sense 6 update for the One Mini later this week, so the carrier has clearly been quite busy over the past few days. The update will introduce all the customary changes that we expect from Android 4.4.3, including the Open SSL fix which required a separate Android 4.4.4 update for Nexus and other stock Android...

Boost Mobile has officially started selling the ZTE Warp Sync smartphone with a price tag of just $179.99 without contractual obligations. If you’re still wondering, this is a midrange offering from the Chinese manufacturer, which justifies the price tag. However, the handset features support for 4G LTE, making it one of the cheapest LTE devices available in the market today. The Warp Sync comes with a 5 inch 720p display, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC,  2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel camera, Android 4.4.2...

Earlier today we saw LG posting a teaser image for its upcoming circular display smartwatch, which we know as the G Watch R. And now, ASUS is reminding us that it’s not too far behind with its offering either as a video is revealing the existence of the new ZenWatch wearable. The video gives a brief glimpse of the design, but we still have no clear idea as only the sides are shown. It’s quite evident though that ASUS is going with a slightly oval shaped display, so it won’t be a rectangular or square slab like the...

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...

HTC unveiled the Desire 510 smartphone earlier today, making it one of the most affordable LTE smartphones to launch from the company. The handset doesn’t come with the company’s conventional BoomSound speakers on the front, with HTC deciding to go with the solitary rear facing speaker. This is an understandable trade off since this is a midrange device. The smartphone has a 4.7 inch 480 x 854 resolution display, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a quad core 64-bit 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal...
