It's hard to believe something as wacky as Sony's QX series of add-on smartphone lenses could be considered "conventional." But compared to the QX1 leaked yesterday, which may allow any Sony E-series lens to mount onto a standard phone, the new QX30 is rather plain. Sony Alpha Rumors posted shots of the newest member of the QX family, which includes an impressive 30x optical zoom (4.3mm-129mm) in the same form factor.

We saw an early look at Samsung's two new Note handsets this morning, and now they're official. Say hello to the Note 4 and Note Edge. Both devices are basically identical, save for the Edge's little side window curved display...thing.

  • 2.7GHz Quad-Core processor or 1.9GHz Octa-Core processor depending on location
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage, microSD card slot
  • 16MP rear camera with "smart OIS" / 3.7MP f1.9 front camera
  • Android 4.4

Just about every major electronics manufacturer has something to show off at IFA 2014, and Acer is no exception. Amidst announcements for a handful of new laptop models, a few tablets made it on stage for a little bit of time in the spotlight. In a creative twist, the two Android tablets featured during the presentation were equipped with significantly different processors. Acer's Iconia One 8 is packing a quad-core processor from Intel while the Iconia Tab 10 is equipped with a MediaTek quad-core processor.

There are plenty of things you can do with a smart device strapped to your wrist that happens to be full of motion and orientation sensors. For instance, you can get quick tips on your golf game with VimoGolf. Just fire it up on the watch, and take a swing.

There's nothing like spoiling a surprise just hours before it becomes official, we're sorry. (Not really.) Samsung is set to announce its latest addition to the Note series of phones later today at IFA in Berlin. As we've seen many times in the past, secrets rarely wait to be told, and an image of the brand new handset has already made its way out into the world. But the image reveals a special treat: Samsung is having twins!

Desk space is a valuable commodity for most of us, and the last thing anybody wants to do is sacrifice a huge area to put down a second keyboard. On the other hand, who among us doesn't hate to switch back and forth between the keyboard and your phone while working and responding to text messages? If this is a familiar feeling, Logitech's just announced K480 Bluetooth keyboard might fit your not-so-uncommon demands.

Some companies like to make a show of their appearances at big tech conferences like IFA. Some of them just like to announce everything all at once, and Lenovo is squarely in the latter category. The company's only Android addition in Berlin is the Tab S8, but thanks to an interesting collection of specs and price tag, it's worth your attention. The 8-inch tablet is a decent mid-range device on paper, but the interesting part is that Lenovo has set the suggested retail price at $199.

Update: It looks like users with qualifying phones who have already redeemed their free storage are automatically getting bumped up to 100GB. Thanks to reader Aaron Blecher for letting us know!

If you've been thinking about getting a newer HTC phone, the company just gave you a little more to think about. HTC and Google have just doubled the amount of free Google Drive storage that new owners of the HTC One M8 and One Max receive when registering a phone, up to 100GB from the former 50.

If you're even remotely interested in high-end gaming, you've probably heard of Destiny, also known as "that shooting MMO game that's kinda like Halo from the people who made Halo." The marketing team for Destiny has decided to team up with Google to create an interesting way for excited players (or prospective players) to check out the environments of the game. It's called Destiny Planet View, and it blasts the Google Street View interface into the solar system for a look at some fictional alien worlds.

The Sony leaks are not over yet—Xperia Blog has what appears to be a press shot of the Xperia Z3 in copper, as well as a glimpse of Sony's new SmartBand. With an e-ink screen, this accessory will probably get mega-long battery life.
