HTC's yet-unannounced Zara isn't exactly a stranger to the rumor circuit. We've heard all the important specs, but @evleaks has just given us a look at what appears to be a slightly censored press shot.
For those who may not remember, the Zara is rumored to be the midrange lovechild of the One and Desire lines, with (according to @evleaks) a dual core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.5" qHD (960x540) display, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable via microSD), a 2100mAh battery pack, and Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 on top.

Just how big is the HTC One Max (AKA T6), rumored to use a 5.9-inch screen? It's big. So big that it dwarfs the HTC One in a new photo from ePrice, the source that leaked the original photos of a purported Chinese model of the upcoming phone. The latest leak shows it next to the One and One Mini, making a family portrait for the One series.
But this isn't just a photo of the baby bear, mama bear, and papa bear of the HTC's lineup. Read More
When Samsung showed off its enormous new Galaxy Mega series earlier this year, we thought that it was only a matter of time before an American carrier decided to pick one up. It looks like AT&T is taking the bait if the latest post from the indefatigable evleaks can be believed. It shows the Galaxy Mega 6.3, the larger of the two phones, with AT&T branding and icons.
The Galaxy Mega phones are relatively low-cost alternatives to Samsung's Galaxy Note series, minus the stylus and digitizer. Read More
The Sony Honami, or possibly the Xperia i1, still doesn't have an official existence. But it's been spotted in leaked renders and system dumps, so it's a pretty safe bet that it's coming to market at some point. The big phone with an even bigger camera sensor was recently spotted hanging out with an iPhone 5 on Chinese forum Digi-Wo, which also compared it to a less bombastic Xperia Z. Read More
Sony has a history of doing odd things with mobile devices, but this is pretty out there. According to Sony Alpha Rumors, which has a good track record on all things Sony camera-related, the company will soon announce a range of "lens cameras" that snap onto Android phones so you can take better pictures. It's every bit as strange as it sounds.
The lens cameras will actually contain almost everything you need to take a picture – a built-in sensor, Bionz image processor, WiFi/NFC, and an SD card slot. Read More
Last week we got our first telling glance of a new HTC smartphone hanging out in China: the T6, or as it may come to be known, the HTC One Max. This purported beast of a phone has the styling of the HTC One with a reported 5.9" screen. Today Evleaks, the Deepthroat of the smartphone world, released a press render on his new Google+ account.
The phone still looks like an enormous HTC One. Read More
According to Geek.com's Russell Holly, the successor to the Nexus 10 - which will be called the Nexus 10 - will be manufactured by ASUS, not Samsung. Holly bases his belief on information from "multiple sources" and an internal Best Buy inventory listing, a well-known Nexus retail partner. Here's that inventory listing, which has otherwise generic "placeholder" info (aka don't pay attention to the obviously-wrong release date).
Now, my first thought was "well, this directly contradicts an earlier report from a reliable source," allegedly Google's own Sundar Pichai, as spoken to by the Wall Street Journal's Amir Efrati, who has since left his post at that publication. Read More
The Nexus 7 2013 is awesome in just about every way, building on the strengths of the original to become an easy choice for the best 7" Android tablet on the market at the moment. But there's at least one company that isn't altogether happy with it: NVIDIA. Their Tegra 3 chip powered the first Nexus 7, but Google switched to Qualcomm for the new version... a decision which hasn't come without problems of its own. Read More
That noted leaker of phones, @evleaks has just posted what appears to be the LG G2 in all its glory. We've seen the device show up a number of times before, but this press shot is the first time the final product has been so clearly visible.
The device matches previous leaks quite well with the strange up and down arrows on the rear of the device, and a very minimal front bezel. Read More
At this point, there's essentially nothing we don't know about the Moto X. We've seen the specs and benchmarks. Taken a look at the camera app. Toyed around with all the cool new features. Watched how it's going to be passively listening to everything you say.
There really isn't much for Moto to tell us on August 1st, save for the price.
Now, @evleaks has published the final set of press shots for both the black and white versions of the device:
Gotta admit – that white one is pretty dang sexy. Read More
