The Moto X Play Is Motorola's Cheaper, Longer-Lasting Flagship: 5.5" 1080p Screen, 21MP Camera, 3630mAh Battery... But No US Release In Sight

The Moto X Style isn't the only new flagship that Motorola revealed at its press conference this morning. The new Moto X Play is basically a "Maxx" version of the phone, with a smaller 1080p screen, but a gigantic 3630mAh battery (plus Turbo charging) for what Motorola calls "48 hours of mixed use." The price will reflect the slightly lower specs, since Motorola claims that this phone will be "$300-400 cheaper" than flagship phones from the competition.

This Year's Motorola Flagship Is The Moto X Style—5.7" Quad-HD Display, 3GB Of RAM, 21MP Camera, Pure Edition Support For All Major US Carriers, $399.99

You won't have to fumble around with remembering the year with the newest Moto X. Or should I say, Moto Xs. This time the company is introducing multiple versions, and each has a name that sets it apart from the crowd. One Moto X has style. Moto X Style.

The Moto X Style is an updated version of the 2014 Moto X, the device we expected from Motorola. The screen makes a predictable jump up to a 5.7-inch quad-HD display. It also makes the leap to a less predictable 21MP camera on the back of the device. A 5MP one resides on the front.

Motorola Officially Unveils Two Models Of The Moto G 2015: 5-Inch Screen, Snapdragon 410, 13MP Camera, 1 Or 2GB Of RAM, 8 Or 16GB Of Storage

Motorola's press event is underway, but various portions of the company have already revealed the star of the show: the new Moto G. The 2015 version of Moto's mid-range device is a mix of old and new, keeping some of the more affordable portions of the phone intact while upgrading some of the most important elements. Specifically, the 2015 Moto G offers optional extra RAM and storage and improves its predecessor's lackluster camera to a 13-megapixel model.

Here's the breakdown: the phone keeps the 5-inch 720p screen from the 2014 version, but upgrades the internals with a Snapdragon 410 processor from Qualcomm and a 13MP rear camera (5MP on the front), the same camera as the Nexus 6, plus a color-balancing flash.

Rovio Announces (Wait For It) Angry Birds 2, Coming To Android On July 30th

Despite a fall from grace after numerous ill-advised cash-ins, Rovio's Angry Birds series remains synonymous with blockbusting success in mobile gaming. The franchise has had no less than fourteen official entries since its inception in 2009, including licensed versions for Transformers, Rio, and Star Wars, spin-offs starring the antagonist pigs and the Pink Bird Stella, and an utter embarrassment of a match-three game. Now, for the very first time, Angry Birds is getting its first direct and complete sequel.

Rovio made the announcement this morning.

With 3 billion game downloads, millions of fans across the globe, multiple mashups and spin-offs, collaborations with A-list celebrities and much more, we’re really proud that Angry Birds is the mother of all mobile game apps.

LG Announces The G4 Beat, A Mid-Range Alternative To The Flagship G4: 5.2" 1080p Screen, Snapdragon 615, 8MP Rear Camera

If you like the style and utility of the G4 but need something a little easier on your wallet, LG has something to show you. The G4 Beat is a cheaper alternative and the sequel to last year's G3 Beat. You'll have to make some notable compromises to get that price down, and unfortunately it's going to be difficult to gauge whether they're worth it - the company hasn't said precisely how much it will cost, though some markets will be getting the phone later this month.

The screen on the G4 Beat is probably one of the best in the mid-range market, a 5.2" 1080p IPS panel.

Telltale Games Announces The Walking Dead: Michonne, Its Next Adventure Game Mini-Series Coming This Fall

Unveiled this morning at the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles, The Walking Dead: Michonne will soon be the latest mini-series from Telltale Games.

Just in case the name doesn't give it away, this set of titles will center around Michonne, a character from the The Walking Dead comic book. The timeline stems from issues #126 through #139.

Anyone familiar with Telltale will know how the tale is told. These licensed adventure games tend to get broken up into series and episodes. Game of Thrones, for example, is four releases into a six-episode arc. Telltale plans to trace the plot of The Walking Dead: Michonne over the course of three episodes.

Huawei Announces The Ascend P8 Lite For The US: Slick 5" Design, Dual SIM, And A Snapdragon 615 For $250 Unlocked

No doubt about it, the mid-range market is heating up, even in places where unlocked and contract-free phones have typically undersold. This morning Chinese smartphone maker Huawei announced the Ascend P8 Lite, a new offering for the US that has its sights set on competitors like the Moto G. The $250 phone is available right now from Huawei's online store in black or white, and it doesn't look like the company is interested in selling through conventional carriers.

AT&T Will Sell The LG G4 Online Starting May 29th, In Stores June 5th: $200 On-Contract, $630 Outright

AT&T is usually first to the party with new phone releases, or at least with their announcements for availability.

In any case, you'll be able to buy LG's latest flagship on AT&T starting tomorrow on its website (at 12:01 AM Eastern, according to the blog post) and on Friday, June 5th in stores.

[Update: All 5 Major US Carriers Are In] LG Makes The G4 Official: Snapdragon 808, 3GB RAM, Slim Arc Design, Stitched Leather Back, 16MP F/1.8 Camera, Removable Battery

Leading up to today's announcement, we saw leaks, teasers, more teasers, one leak to rule them all, and even more teasers. If there was anything you wanted to know about this phone, you already do. Only now, in big press event fashion, LG has made it official.

Okay, not everything was unveiled. One piece of information we were waiting to see confirmed was the processor. Rather than adopt the Snapdragon 810, LG has opted for the 808. It and Qualcomm boast that with this processor the device is able to get more than a full day of battery life.

LG Announces The G Stylo, A 5.7" Low-End Phone With A Stylus And Not Much Else

LG G Stylo is not the name of South Korea's first robot hairdresser. Nope, it's a low-end LG phone designed around a big screen, a stylus, and not a whole lot else. The name, according to LG's press release, is a pun on both "stylus" and "stylish." Feel free to spend a minute or two letting that marketing decision sink in.

Ostensibly a sequel to the G3 Stylus, the G Stylo is probably the phone that circulated as the G4 in those rumors a few months back. One look at the spec sheet is enough to kill that notion: it's a 5.7-inch phone with a 720p screen, a Snapdragon 410 processor, and 1.5GB of RAM.
