Samsung leaks have been harder to come by as of late - with the Galaxy S5 probably arriving at a press event on Monday, we still haven't seen hide nor hair of the hardware. But perennial leaker Evleaks has just posted two photos of what appear to be successors to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. According to a later tweet, the watches may drop the standard "Galaxy" branding.
Update: @evleaks may not have been the first one to get pictures of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 out, but better late than never (if you could even really call this late). Here he is with an image that looks to confirm what @gadgetleaks has shared.

Earlier today @evleaks shared information on Sony's upcoming Xperia Tablet Z2. If his intel is accurate, the sequel to last year's tablet will come with a 10.1" 1920x1200 display, a Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 6000mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and KitKat.
A new report from SamMobile claims to confirm that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 will indeed have a fingerprint sensor. Not only that, the leaked information has a lot to say about how the feature will work. According to SamMobile, the sensor is going to be integrated with the home button, and yes, that means there will still be physical buttons on the Galaxy S5.
Unlike Apple's Touch ID scanner, Samsung's version will require you to swipe your finger across the home button while keeping it flat.
A bit of new information out of @evleaks points to possible specs for the still unannounced Sony Xperia Tablet Z2. The first one was a big departure for Sony's past tablet designs, but it was also a good device. If the leaked specs are to be believed, the sequel is going to be a lot like the first one – a little too much like it, perhaps.
Samsung may be preparing to announce the Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Congress later this month, and one of the features it's sure to detail is an updated version of its S Voice assistant. We saw a few screens of this app leak recently, but now SamMobile has gotten some hands-on time with the app and has the screens to prove it.
It's been a tumultuous ride with the red Nexus 5. At first it sounded unlikely with little more than rumors and suspect renders to go on, then multiple images appeared. The red Nexus 5 seems like a real thing now, but the date has been a mystery thus far. A tipster just provided us with a pic from Sprint's internal documentation informing employees that a red Nexus 5 will be hitting Google Play on February 4th.
LG is expected to make the G Pro 2 official at Mobile World Congress next month, but the device is parading around in front of the camera already. The images that popped up on a Korean forum look just like you might expect. It's has those back-mounted buttons from the G2, but on a larger frame.
There's nothing for scale in the photo, so it's hard to tell exactly how big the phone is – the placement and size of the buttons make it look at least a little larger.
Google has long offered Nexus devices in black, with only occasional white options. The Nexus 5 is the first one that has been available in both colors from the start. Perhaps because of this, rumors of different colors for the Nexus 5 have been circulating for a while now, but a new cache of photos is the best evidence yet that a red version of Google's flagship is on the way.
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.

If you believe the predictions, Google is going to announce Android 4.4 KitKat (and the Nexus 5) in mere hours. According to a new report based on leaked marketing materials, Android 4.4 is going to tackle some of the biggest issues that have been plaguing the platform and Google's services as a whole.
