The Sony Xperia Z3 is less than a week away from launch as we all know. And today, we have stumbled across reports suggesting that Sprint could soon carry a flagship Sony smartphone on its shelves. While there’s no mention of the Xperia Z3 specifically, it goes without saying that this is the device being mentioned. Over the years, Sony has struggled to launch its smartphones through major American carriers. Currently, T-Mobile is the only network to offer Sony’s smartphones. Sprint has never launched a Sony smartphone,...

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...

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...

Motorola is already expected to launch two new smartphones on the 4th of September. And it seems like the company has six more smartphones to show off before the end of 2014, including the Moto X+1 and the Nexus 6 a.k.a Shamu. The report mentions the possible launch of three new Verizon bound smartphones known as Droid, Droid Maxx and the Droid Turbo. It is likely that these devices will reach AT&T’s shelves as well, albeit with a different brand name. We’re not sure how different the Droid Turbo will be compared to the...

The LG G Watch was officially made available for purchase from July and has seen decent response since then. But according to a report from the Korea Times, the manufacturer will reportedly launch a newer variant of the smartwatch sporting an AMOLED display at the IFA event next month. Using an AMOLED panel could do a world of good for the device’s battery life as well as general visibility, considering these reports materialize. Sources close to LG have also mentioned that the company is talking with the biggest watch manufacturers...

A concept of the Nexus 6 Only yesterday we came across a report which indicated that the Nexus 6 or the Motorola Shamu will pack a Snapdragon 801 SoC and most likely a 1080p display. However, a new finding from GFX Bench is contradicting those reports by claiming that the smartphone will in fact sport a quad core Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.6 GHz and a 5.2 inch 2K resolution display. Unsurprisingly, Android L is expected to be running by default and the device is also revealed be packing a 12-megapixel camera on the back. The default...

We could be in for quite a treat at next month’s IFA 2014 event if the current schedule of events is anything to go by. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4, while Sony is all set to announce the Xperia Z3. However, it seems like another big ticket manufacturer could have something for us during the event. A teaser posted by Huawei, hints at a large 6 inch 2K display smartphone breaking cover at next month’s event, which means that the Galaxy Note 4 won’t be the only 2K display phablet on show in Berlin. Although...

A new device called the Motorola Shamu has popped up on GFX Bench, fueling rumors about the Motorola Nexus smartphone we’ve heard so much about. The device is revealed to have the same benchmark score as Snapdragon 801 devices like the HTC One M8, the Sony Xperia Z2 and the Samsung Galaxy S5, so it’s safe to assume that it is packing the same chipset. This might be a bit of a letdown for people expecting the Snapdragon 805 on board. This also means that the smartphone might not feature a 2K resolution display, as the LG G3...
