Motorola's social media team has had a few oopsie moments lately. Just the other day Motorola's Twitter and Google+ accounts announced a launch date for the Moto X Pure, only to remove the postings. Now Motorola has posted a video tweet that briefly shows what appears to be a new Moto 360. Read More
Sony's smartphone division isn't doing great right now, but the company is still pumping out devices like there's no tomorrow (and maybe there isn't). The mid-range Xperia M5 and C5 Ultra have been leaked in full by Hi-Tech.Mail.ru, and one of them has some interesting design ideas. Read More
The OnePlus 2 is set to be announced in just a few hours, but a last-minute leak confirms many of the details that have already propagated. A poster on XDA claims to be a beta tester in China and comes bearing gifts—a bunch of new photos that confirm the previously leaked TENAA images and some thoughts on the device. Read More
We all know that a new Moto G is coming very soon, probably at Motorola's "find your match" event on July 27th. Someone over at Moto HQ must have an itchy trigger finger, though. The Moto Maker page for this phone was available on Motorola's website for a short time today before it was pulled (redirects to the homepage now). We do, however, have a screenshot of the configuration options courtesy of a Reddit user.
Courtesy of Android Peru on Facebook, we have some photos of what may just be the third generation Moto X. You guys get more excited about leaked gadget photos than you do about celebrity wardrobe malfunctions, so I'll let you check out the pics before I point out my observations.
Ok, here are the things that I spotted that may be new if this is indeed the Moto X 2015.
- Front facing LED camera flash: Because — Selfies.
- Dual front facing speaker grills: Stereo speakers have been a great addition for HTC and Sony, hopefully Motorola is joining the parade as well.
OnePlus wants to tease us all on a semi-daily basis until the big reveal of the OnePlus 2 on July 27th, but it looks like it won't have quite the same impact now. Images of the new phone have appeared on the TENAA website, which is China's version of the FCC. So what does it look like? Imagine an awkward fusion of a OnePlus One and a Galaxy S6.
Microsoft has restricted the Cortana virtual assistant to Windows device thus far, but an official Android release is right around the corner. You don't have to wait, though. The beta Cortana app has leaked, and it appears to be fully functional. Just grab the app from APK Mirror and give it a shot.
With all the rumors and now some FCC documents to go on, it seems a foregone conclusion that Samsung will be releasing a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge called the S6 Edge Plus. Now there are a few leaked images that seem to show a dummy Edge Plus unit, which gives you a good idea what the real device will look like. It's sitting next to a Note 4 dummy in the pics to illustrate the increased size.
The original Moto X was launched with Moto Maker customization options, and the second iteration expanded the selection of materials. Through it all the modest Moto G has been mostly left out of the fun, but a leak from Evan "@evleaks" Blass points to possible Moto Maker support for the upcoming Moto G refresh.
We've been hearing rumblings about an Android Wear update coming out in the next few weeks, and now Phandroid has some info on what might be included. The next update will have two main feature additions—a watch-to-watch communication system and interactive watch faces.
