Alleged Photo Of The Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact Shows Fingerprint Reader-Equipped Side Power Buttons

When you're looking for phone leaks, Twitter isn't a bad place to start. @ViziLeaks has shared photos of what are supposedly the upcoming Xperia Z (TBC but probably 5) and the corresponding compact version. You can see them flanking an iPhone, with the compact model on the left.

In responses to tweets, @ViziLeaks details what we're seeing and not seeing in this image. There's a side power button on the side of the Xperia Z5. This apparently doubles as a fingerprint sensor, which you can see by looking at the software on both devices.

Press Renders Of The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 And S6 Edge Plus Leak Online

"It isn't a real smartphone leak until we see press renders of the device by Evan Blass," that's how the saying goes, doesn't it? Well, Evan has tweeted an image of what seems to be the Galaxy Note 5 posing with its pen, right next to the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

The image confirms what we have already seen, more than once, of both devices. They'll have the same screen size, at 5.7" with a 2K resolution, and will likely be decked with an Exynos processor (though there's a rumor the S6 Edge Plus may run a Snapdragon), 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory on the lowest tier.

[Update: Hangouts 4.0 Not Required] Hangouts 4.0 Leak Shows The Ability To Start Conversations From Android Wear Actually Working

Hangouts 4.0. We want you. And that desire has only grown after Phandroid's latest leak. It looks like users will be able to initiate Hangouts conversations using Android Wear once the latest update comes around.

As some readers have pointed out, this feature does not appear to require Hangouts 4. People are having success initiating Hangouts messages from Android Wear using the version currently available in the Play Store.

More Photos Of (Probably) The Galaxy Note 5 Leak Via Chinese Accessory Company

There's a big Samsung event in New York City next month. It will probably be where the company announces its next-generation Galaxy Note series - though they seem to be a little early this time around, the latter half of the year is when Sammy likes to bust out its big phones. We've already seen some convincing photos of two phones identified as the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ (a super-sized version of the S6 Edge without the Note line's compulsory stylus). Now we're seeing even more of the former.

Photos of an alleged Galaxy Note 5 popped up on French gadget site NowhereElse.fr today, tagged with watermarks from a little-known Chinese smartphone accessory maker named Nillkin.

OnePlus 2 Apparently Caught On Video Ahead Of Monday's Announcement

It's not in VR or anything, but if you want to see our best look yet at the upcoming OnePlus 2, a five-minute video of the phone has leaked onto YouTube. Well, it's apparently the OnePlus 2 - we can't confirm it, of course, but the low-quality video seems to match the leaked images from a Chinese regulator that we saw earlier this week. Look closely and you can see what appears to be a fingerprint sensor beneath the screen.

The video is mostly silent and the text is in Chinese, but it's pretty easy to follow along as the operator takes in the About page and runs a benchmark.

Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 5 And S6 Edge+ Photos Leak Courtesy Of UK Online Retailer Mobile Fun

Mobile Fun, an online retailer based in the UK, has posted several photos of what it claims are the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+. Judging from everything we've heard about these two devices, the photos appear to be legit. Ultimately what we see are two handsets that look like larger versions of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

One photo shows the S6 Edge+ running Android 5.1.1. Its model number is SM-G928A.

Mobile Fun provides very little information in the post. These photos seem to confirm images the retailer recently shared from case manufacturers, a source that isn't always reliable.

Alleged Photos Of Motorola's Moto G 3rd Gen 2015 Leak, Along With A Mysterious Possible Moto X 2015 Sport

When it rains, it pours. But in the world of mobile rumors, when it leaks, the faucet opens and all of the images of secret test devices start flooding social media posts and our inboxes. The latest smartphones to fall prey to this adage are the ones that constitute Motorola's upcoming portfolio.

First up, the much leaked Moto G 3rd Gen (or Moto G 2015) has found itself in the hands of a guy in Mexico who proceeded to photograph many of its angles. After the deluge of press release shots, this is our first extensive look at the phone in real life and it seems... OK I guess.

Moto G 2015 Leaked In Photos, Rumored Specs Include A 13MP Rear Camera, Same 5-Inch Screen And 1GB Of RAM

Ah, summer in the US has arrived, and you know what that means: Motorola leaks and rumors. A few hints of the new flagship Moto X have been circulating (none of them reliable enough for a full post here on Android Police), but new evidence of the next mid-range Moto G is worth looking into. According to a series of photos posted to Google+, Motorola intends to keep the same basic layout for 2015 but revise the textured rear panel with an LG-style vertical strip.

Nest's New Cam And App Leak Ahead Of The Company's June 17th Event

After Nest acquired Dropcam and started integrating some of its hardware with the security cam, it was only a matter of time before the company got its ducks in a row for an official Nest-branded camera. It seems that the wait is about to be over. Nest has a press event scheduled on June 17th, and among the possible announcements is the Nest Cam.

According to Droid-Life, this is the new Cam. It looks like a Dropcam, predictably, but slimmer, more modern, and like the result of a Stuart the minion and Mike Wazowski inspiration. Bee doo bee doo! Presumably, the Nest Cam will be capable of 1080p streaming and recording, though the report wasn't clear on whether that means local storage or Dropcam's expensive subscription tiers.

An Exclusive Early Look At Hangouts 4.0

Back in September, Hangouts switched from gray to green in its 2.3 update, ostensibly making the first baby steps on its journey toward joining Google's material design parade. Then in December we first spied a slightly more material version of the app. Now, users are running version 3.3 and many aren't satisfied with the app's layouts or structure. Things like the seemingly unnecessary contacts tab, the somewhat messy drawer, and the non-standard toolbar are common complaints.

It looks like Google is working on fixing a lot of issues with an upcoming update to Hangouts 4.0 though. We've heard rumblings from Reddit of the new update, and now we've got an early look at the app.
