Oh well, that was fast. It has barely been two hours since we posted about The Hindustan Times jumping the gun and publishing an ad for the OnePlus 3 that reveals the device as an Amazon Exclusive in India, but there's more. Amazon India appears to have grown a little antsy and published the official listing for the OnePlus 3 with all of the glorious details.
We're still sifting through all the details and will update the post as we go, but it seems that all of the leaked specs were accurate: a Snapdragon 820 runs the show, a 5.5" 1080p "Optic Amoled" display is on the front covered with Gorilla Glass 4, there are 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage that don't appear to be coupled with a MicroSD slot, the charging port is USB 2.0 Type-C with "Dash Charge" technology for faster charging (5V at 4A), a 16MP camera with OIS is on the back and 8MP fixed-focus camera is on the front, and everything is powered by a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

The OnePlus 3 has been in the news so frequently these past few weeks that we're more than ready for the phone to be officially announced so we can move on from all the rumors. And speaking of rumors, after getting our clearest look yet at the device yesterday, we thought we were done with the leaks, but it seems that there's more to learn about the 3, and from very official and reliable sources to boot.
People in India who happened to check the Hindustan Times newspaper today might have noticed an interesting ad taking up a huge space in one of the pages. Read More
A leak posted by Sammobile, pictured above, claims that the next Galaxy will be unveiled on August 2nd at the Lincoln Center in New York at 11AM local time. Interestingly, the leaked image contains the text "The next edge is just around the corner" - suggesting an edge-branded device. There has been speculation and rumor suggesting the next Galaxy Note will be known as the Note 7 (because iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7) and have a curved display like its S7 edge cousin, though will be larger than the last Galaxy Note.
This has led Sammobile to speculate that the name of the upcoming device could be Galaxy Note7 edge, which, well, gross, but plausible. Read More
Motorola announced the Moto Z yesterday with fewer Moto Mod accessories than were previously rumored. There's even an entire phone from previous leaks that didn't make an appearance. According to HelloMotoHK, those are still happening, and there are new-ish images. The phone is code named Vertex, and the remaining Mods were still called Amps when these images were produced.

Lenovo Tech World is going to kick off shortly, but the details of the company's big Tango phone announcement have apparently leaked. I don't just mean "big" in the abstract; this phone is really physically large with a 6.4-inch QHD display. The new leaked specs include a number of convincing new images that match the rumors that have come before. So, say hello to the PHAB2 Pro. Yeah, I guess that's really the name. Read More
Like it or not, it's clear that Motorola's often-leaked upcoming batch of phones will be very different from the relatively straightforward designs in its current lineup. Previous leaks indicated that at least some of the models in the refreshed Moto X (or possibly Moto Z) and DROID series will have add-on modules called "MotoMod" that snap onto the back of the phone via a proprietary interface. It's a lot like the direction that LG is taking with its modular G5. Read More
The Galaxy Note series has always been Samsung's chance to try new stuff before bringing it to the flagship Galaxy S line, and there might be a lot of new stuff in this year's Note. OnLeaks claims to have gotten his hands on leaked CAD files for the Galaxy Note 6 (or whatever they call the nest one), and he used them to create some 3D renders. The device has a few interesting things going on, including Samsung's first Type-C port on the bottom. Read More
The new (and thoroughly leaked) Motorola devices are expected to be announced at Lenovo Tech World in just a few days, but there's still time for leaking. Evan "@evleaks" Blass has posted images of the Verizon-bound Droid variants of the new Moto flagship, as well as the modular back plates previously rumored as Amps and now known as "MotoMods."

It's a foregone conclusion that AT&T is about to release a ruggedized version of the Galaxy S7 called the Galaxy S7 Active. It's done it for the last few Galaxy flagships, and the phone has leaked a few times. Now, Venture Beat has more detailed specs for the device, and most of it is no surprise. It's a GS7 with a different chassis and a bigger battery. The size of that battery is a bit of a surprise—it's apparently 4,000mAh. Read More
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T has been leaked already, but that was the army green camo variant. You expect the Active to look like that. Now, the GS7 Active has leaked in what can only be described as the gaudiest rugged phone ever envisioned. That's the gold GS7 Active above, or as Evan Blass jokes, it's "desert camo." Read More
