A recent rumor indicated that HTC was looking to launch a budget tablet in the markets soon. According to new reports, this tablet will sport a 7 inch display, which was already expected. It is also being said that HTC will have a dual SIM card slot on the tablet, possibly to appease the Asian markets. Other rumored features of the tablet include a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and a paltry 1GB of RAM accompanied by 16GB of internal storage. It’s clear from this leak that the tablet will not be topping the benchmarking charts as far...

According to a new rumor, HTC could be interested in launching its second tablet within a year’s gap, dubbed as the H7. It is likely that this is a pre-production name given to the tablet and the real name might be completely different. It’s interesting that the company wants to try its hand at the budget tablet segment, but not all that surprising given that its smartphone sales haven’t exactly gone off the roof recently. The H7 is scheduled for a release by the second quarter of 2015, which indicates that this could...

The Sony Xperia Z4 was announced by Sony without much fanfare about a month ago, but only in Japan. A new report suggests that the smartphone could be making its way to the U.S. as well, via the nation’s largest carrier Verizon. The revelation was made by @evleaks a.k.a Evan Blass on Twitter, who hasn’t been as frequent with the leaks as before due to personal reasons.

Manufacturers max out at 8 cores for mobile processors these days. But according to a new report, Qualcomm might be ready to up the ante with a rumored 10 core or deca-core chipset. It is said that the Snapdragon 818 could have this honor and might enable desktop like processing power on mobile devices. It is said that the SoC is still in its early developmental stages, so it might not hit the markets anytime soon. Keeping that in mind, we suggest you take this report with a pinch of salt.

In the description for a Google I/O session titled “Android for Work”, Google has inadvertently revealed Android M. There’s no further mention of what this new OS will bring, but it’s more than enough to pique our interest about the next major version of Android. Google announced Android 5.0 Lollipop (then known as Android L) during the I/O event last year, so this move makes sense. At this point, it seems like Google isn’t even trying to keep this a secret, so we can expect the company to be pretty open...

With the Sony Xperia Z4 going official recently, there is now talk of a mini version launching soon. According to a new rumor, the Xperia Z4 Compact handset will be officially announced next week. A Russian site has managed to access DoCoMo’s summer handset lineup. DoCoMo is a popular Japanese carrier and Sony devices usually launch through them first, so this seems to be pretty legitimate information. It is also said that the handset will be revealed on the 13th of May. There was no other significant information available on the...

We’ve been hearing about the Galaxy Tab S2 for quite a while now. A report tells us that the device will break cover next month, sporting a slim design as rumored. It is being said that there will be 9.7 and 8 inch variants of this tablet, both with a thickness of just 5.4 mm, which is quite amazing for a tablet. The resolution should be Quad HD, much like the previous iteration, although there is word that it might be dropped to 2048 x 1536. It is being said that Samsung will use a new 64-bit Exynos chipset with Android 5.0.2 running...

A new rumor tells us that Samsung is looking to launch the Galaxy Note 5 smartphone this year with a dual sided curved display panel similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge and also a 4K resolution panel. While the former seems likely given the current trend, the mention of a 4K display has certainly taken us a bit by surprise. The company is currently pushing its 2K resolution displays on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, so the use of a 4K display on a flagship which is just over five months away might be too quick an upgrade. The display...
