Today, famed leaker @evleaks has given us what he believes is a preview of the new Nexus 10, made by Samsung. In case you haven't been following the enormous amount of drama surrounding this; Asus, Samsung, and even LG, have all been suggested as possible manufacturers for Google's next-generation 10-inch tablet. Going into today, the Asus rumors seemed to have the most credibility, so if this leak holds true, the emergence of Samsung as the top dog would definitely be a plot twist for some folks.
Nokia's rumored Android phone, the Normandy, has popped up a few times in leaked pics, but we've never seen the UI until now. In the newest images, the Android interface designed by Nokia is on display for all to see.

Today, famed leaker Evleaks has given the world a sneak-peek at four new Samsung tablets ahead of the company's proper CES announcement. The tablets in question are part of a new "Pro" line being launched as additions to the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab brands. There will be a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2" model along with three new Galaxy Tab Pro variants, available in 12.2", 10.1", and 8.4" form factors.
Upon close examination of the press renderings, it also appears that Samsung has finally ditched the menu key in favor of a multitasking button.
The LG G Flex, a device that can survive a thousand mild scratches, is apparently destined for American shores after all. While it was first thought to be exclusive to Europe and Asia, noted leaker of phone-related business, @evleaks has said the phone is headed to AT&T, Sprint, And T-Mobile. In fact, he used the word "confirmed."

If you can tear your gaze away from KitKat and Nexus news today, there's actually other stuff going on in the Android world. The indefatigable Evleaks has just posted what he claims is a photo (of a photo) of the Moto G, which he himself was sent via a tip. It looks a lot like the Moto X, but as some have predicted, with more low-end specs.

According to the tweet, the phone will use the same screen size and resolution as the Moto X, and both the front and rear of the body look remarkably similar to Motorola's current flagship.
Reputed leaker of phones @evleaks is talking about the Nexus 5 again today, and this time we're hearing that the device will be available on the Sprint network. An image of the Nexus 5 was included in the Twitter posting, but it doesn't appear to be any different than the other renders of the Nexus 5. So how's this going to work?

Sprint support has been on the table since the radio listings leaked, so this isn't a complete surprise.
It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".
If you've been on pins and needles for another fix of Nexus hype, @evleaks has provided something you may like. In a post to Twitter this evening, @evleaks shared a new press render of the Nexus 5 - one that matches the Telus Nexus 5 leak we covered last week.
As usual, @evleaks' post is sparse on information, reading only "Nexus 5, by LG, 2013." And this isn't exactly something we haven't seen before - at this point, we've pretty much seen the Nexus 5 from all angles.
After dropping the Xperia Z1 for T-Mobile on us this morning, @evleaks has revealed another upcoming Android handset headed to a US carrier near you; namely, the Galaxy S4 Mini for Verizon.

Now, I'm not entirely sure we can be 100% positive this is for Verizon, but oh wait, the home button has a not at all conspicuous Verizon logo!
Are you holding out for a stateside release of Sony's new flagship, the Xperia Z1? It appears hope may finally be on the horizon, at least if T-Mobile is an option for you. @evleaks just released a photo of what looks to be an Xperia Z1 headed to America's pinkest carrier, courtesy of a bit of T-Mobile branding along the bottom. Take a looksee.

We had some time with the Z1 back at IFA in September, but as seems to be the case with nearly every Sony phone lately, an American launch wasn't announced or even suggested at the time.
