We are rapidly approaching that fun time of year when the largest Android smartphone manufacturers unveil their newest flagships. That means we're already in the silly season of rumors and leaks. Isn't it interesting to follow all the developments on, say, the HTC One M9? The M7 was great, the M8 was better...it's understandably hard to wait for official information about the 2015 iteration. However, whatever you do, do not look at product images from case manufacturers like Spigen to learn what the next phone will look like.
Remember when famous tipster @evleaks posted these supposed renders of the M9?
The supposed M9 is on the left. Read More
This might be the Galaxy S6. It started with a few images of a phone shrouded in bubble wrap, but that was quickly followed by more images of the phone from all angles. You can never be completely sure with leaks, but these look legit. Read More
Well, look at what we have here. Noted leaker of things, @Upleaks has posted a few more images of the supposed HTC One M9, and they look like the most recent renders. Like it or not, they show a phone that's a dead ringer for the current M8.
Motorola hasn't officially announced a 2nd generation Moto E, but the company has every reason to make one. The budget device was a big seller last year, and we got a leaked image of the new one just last month. Now the phone is on Best Buy's website, priced at $99 for Sprint prepaid service. However, you (probably) can't buy it just yet.
You probably remember the huff over AT&T's customization of the Nexus 6 several months back. Well, Verizon isn't going to be left out of the fun. Verizon's version of the device will apparently have a logo on the back, according to some leaked pics. Yes, if you look carefully, there's a phone under all those watermarks.
Google's Android One program is the company's play to capture the billions of potential users who don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a smartphone. The initiative is running a little behind based on Google's previously announced timeline, but the Indonesian launch is coming later this month. Indonesia is a huge country, so the Android One rollout would be big news all on its own, but according to Google's official Android One site, the Indonesian One devices will have Android 5.1 included. Google... what?
Evan Blass, better known around these parts as the well-regarded leaker @evleaks, has taken to Twitter (despite being retired) with a leaked thumbnail of what may be renders of the upcoming HTC One M9. We've seen purported images of HTC's next flagship surface already, but word on the street says these were dummy shells the manufacturer produced while developing the device (here's what Blass himself has to say on the matter). This leaves room for these latest leaks to still be the real deal.
It's the thumbnail on the right.
Let's address the obvious here first. There are two devices here. Read More
A few new images of what very well could be the HTC One M9 have surfaced, and they're a good match for the first shots that showed up a few days ago. This time they're a lot less blurry, though. Take a look.
Asus has been teasing a new phone announcement for CES, but phones need wireless certifications, and sometimes those documents give away more than intended. Such appears to be the case for the "ZC451CG," which the product description submitted to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group calls a successor to the ZenFone. This might be what Asus plans to unveil at CES.
If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and void your warranty, you can have Android 5.0 on your Sprint Galaxy S5 right now. An early build of Lollipop for this device has leaked on XDA, and it's flashable with Odin. Expect bugs, but hey, it's Lollipop.
