One of the biggest issues with many Android devices is the subpar camera – only recently have manufacturers really started to step up their game and put better hardware in top-end devices. What many users may not realize, however, is that simply trying different software can drastically change the entire camera experience. Sure, the device is still limited by the hardware, but changing the software can definitely help get the most out of any shooter.
LG made a last minute amendment to the documentation for the Verizon edition of the G2 yesterday, which is model number LG-VS980. No big deal, right? Except someone at the FCC or LG seems to have screwed this one up, but in our favor. Images of an LG device are attached to the application. These are usually held back until a device is released, but these aren't images of the G2 for Verizon.
Update: According to GigaOm, today's Galaxy Gear images are definitely of a prototype, as VentureBeat speculated could be the case earlier. Additionally, GigaOm's sources indicate that the watch will be running Android 4.3 with Bluetooth LE connectivity, a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos 4212 processor (with Mali-400 MP4 GPU), and the ability to make phone calls. Our original post follows below.
We're looking forward to getting a glimpse of the Galaxy Gear, Samsung's rumored smart watch, expected for an IFA reveal.
Yesterday, @evleaks scored several press images of the new Nexus 7, which is expected to be revealed by Google on July 24th. Not even a day later, we now have an exclusive gallery of more recent press shots that not only offer several more angles, but also showcase what I believe is the new default Android 4.3 Nexus wallpaper which replaces the Android 4.2 wallpaper seen in the previous pictures.
As we already know, the white Nexus 4 is very much real. Months after first showing up on the web, it re-appeared at Google I/O in all its glory, with June 10th tipped as a possible launch date by AndroidAndMe's co-founder Taylor Wimberly. Alongside it, according to Taylor, Android 4.3 would be unveiled as well.
While I can't confirm the date (even if the information was correct at the time of I/O, plans can change for any reason), what I can show you today are some of the press images of the white Nexus 4, model number E960W (the original Nexus 4 is E960).
Thanks to some quick thinking of an enterprising xda-developers forum member loan92, who used his charm and boyish good looks to distract HTC employees from his sneaky actions at an event in Italy, we have eighteen beautiful wallpapers the company bundled with the upcoming One flagship.
For your convenience, I've mirrored them to an imgur gallery where they can be viewed using the widget below.
Adobe has kind of a scattershot mobile strategy. On the one hand, it released six apps back in 2011 for tablets that ranged from okay to awesome. On the other hand, it killed off five of them last year. The tablet versions cost $10 each. Pricey for an app, but Adobe knows how to bring it's A-game. Today, it's bringing it again with a phone version of Photoshop Touch. A distinct piece of software for $5.
OK, OK... we've seen it before. And before that. And before that. But, it's the new Nexus phone, and we want to see as much of it as we can before the official announcement on Monday. Thanks to @evleaks, we have what seems to be a final render of the device, and this time it doesn't appear to be running a custom ROM.
And there you have it - the Nexus 4 in all of its glory.
At this point, we've all seen the shiny, glistening, sparkly LG Nexus. Opinions of the look seem to be split right down the middle - some users love it, while others can't stand the thing. Personally, I'm on the fence about it, and I'm equally as skeptical if this is even the final design. For all we know, the prototype was designed this way on purpose so everyone would wonder what Google is thinking (hey, it could happen).
We've been hearing rumors about an LG Nexus for a while now. At first, we were skeptical. However, as the evidence piles up, we're becoming increasingly convinced that this rumor is indeed legit.
Now, a set of photos have surfaced over at the XDA forums that appear to seal the deal.
The first thing you'll probably want to check out in the above shots is the About screen.
