The OnePlus One is expected to get the Android 5.0 update through CyanogenMod 12S. But in India, where CyanogenMod updates are blocked on the device, the company’s upcoming Oxygen OS ROM is the only way to get Android 5.0 on the OnePlus One. The company has already missed a couple of release deadlines in the past for this ROM and has now announced that it won’t be able to issue the ROM by the end of March as initially promised. After giving the bad news, OnePlus took the time to apologize to the fans who have been waiting...

A new rumor is suggesting that the upcoming LG G4 flagship will be unveiled next month, with what is considered to be a curved display. The term curved is very vague here, although we don’t expect it to be as curved as the LG G Flex 2, which was announced back in January by LG with Sprint currently selling it in the U.S. It is said that the G4 will be revealed by the end of April, with a launch possibly expected in early or mid May. Details on the hardware specs are non-existent at this point as the smartphone is yet to make its...

This is not the first time we’re hearing of an OEM skinned version of the HTC Nexus 9 breaking cover soon and certainly won’t be the last. According to a new rumor though, the tablet which is known as the T1H internally will feature an almost identical hardware specs sheet as the Nexus variant, barring the customized version of Android. It is said that the device will break cover in China as soon as in May this year. The tablet is also said to be slightly thinner with a 7.88mm body while the Nexus 9 is 7.95mm thick, suggesting a...

Pebble announced the Pebble Time and the Pebble Time Steel a few weeks ago through a Kickstarter listing. The smartwatch surpassed its initial goal of $500,000 long ago and has now breached the $20 million mark. In fact, the initial goal was surpassed within 20 minutes of the listing going live. This is incredible for a crowd funded project, but not overly surprising given that Pebble has been around for a bit now and people are synonymous with the product as well. Some have criticized Pebble’s decision to take the crowd funding...

Amazon now has a very sweet deal on the Champagne Gold version of the Moto 360 smartwatch with a metal band. This model will set you back by $330 when bought directly from Motorola, but this deal is giving away the wearable for just $277.52, which is a discount of nearly $53 on the wearable. This comes from Amazon, which is usually not the place to go when you’re looking to buy the Moto 360, but that’s not much of a concern when the device is being offered at this price. This variant has a relatively slim 18mm band, which...

The smartphone is available in White, Black, Red and Green color variants, so there are quite a lot of choices on offer here. The smartphone packs a very identical internal hardware as the Xperia Z3, but in a relatively...

We’ve heard enough about the Samsung Galaxy S6 to convince us of its true potential. However, a new report suggests that the storage on the entry level model might not be as endorsed. The 32GB Galaxy S6, which is the base model of the series, will reportedly have only 23GB of user accessible storage. This means that the users will have very limited space out of the box for their content like movies, images, music etc. While it’s not unusual for devices to take up a lot of space, we’re guessing the TouchWiz UI layer...
