Since this is the unlocked model, users will have to shell out $699.99 up front, which is a $50 discount on the original asking price. The smartphone is compatible...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to break cover in early September and we’re beginning to get a better idea of the smartphone’s hardware with each leak. Multiple leaks from last week indicated that the smartphone will come with an ultraviolet sensor as well as a retina scanner for added security. This new report from Korea suggests that Samsung’s upcoming flagship could feature an all metal body and a flexible display which has been in development for over a year now. Other alleged specs of the smartphone include...

HTC is believed to be in the running to bring the next Nexus tablet in a few months from now. However, Evleaks has managed to uncover two more tablets codenamed T7 and T12. We’re not sure what these codenames stand for and there’s no info on the hardware as it’s still very early in the day. There’s no timeframe for the launch of the two tablets either and it’s only left to our imagination as to when the two devices will be unveiled by the Taiwanese manufacturer. It is possible that the T7 is a smaller tablet...

Last week, we spoke about some units of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S suffering from overheating issues leading to the disfiguring of the plastic back cover.

The company has also partially...

The Verizon variant of the Moto G is now getting the Android 4.4.4 update almost a month after Google started rolling it out to its Nexus and GPE devices. The update to Android 4.4.4 brings the customary changes from Google as well as software specific tweaks for features such as the camera. Since the Moto G runs a relatively stock version of Android, users will see the smartphone getting the all new dialer which was a feature introduced with Android 4.4.3. Also new is the ability to pause video recordings and resume whenever necessary,...

Google is known for integrating its services across the cloud for seamless connectivity and access. And a new change now allows users to post reminders using Google homepage on their web browser. All they have to do is type out “Remind me to ….” and Google will bring out a layout where the user will be asked to enter the date, time and other related particulars for the reminder. It’s a very novel addition since users aren’t always around their smartphones and they can just as easily set reminders using...

Motorola seems to be on a roll of late with the Moto X+1 preparing launch along with the Moto 360 smartwatch. And a new leak today has revealed yet another smartphone from the manufacturer, which is apparently the second generation Moto G.
