Last month, Geek.com's Russell Holly reported that ASUS would be crafting the next-generation Nexus 10 rather than Samsung, the manufacturer who brought us the first iteration of Google's ten-inch tablet.

The report was followed quickly by the rolling back of WSJ's Amir Efrati's previous statements, and relied on "multiple sources," among them a screenshot from Best Buy's internal inventory system.

Today the claim was given a bit more credence, with a PCWorld inventory screen snapped by PCWorld employee @Rage06 surfacing on Twitter.

As it's getting close to Nexus season, the rumors about Google's next phone are really starting to pile up. As are the leaks. And at this point, it can be really fun to hop on the speculation express to conclusion town. Dare I say, it's understandable. Even "Nexus 5" - a name that has been confirmed (even circumstantially) exactly zero times - seems to be such a concrete fact now that you'd have to be a moron not to believe that's what the next Nexus is going to be called, right?

Google got more than a few raised eyebrows when a possible candidate for the next Nexus phone, bearing what was probably LG branding and a Nexus 7 2013-style horizontal logo, was leaked in the video for the Android 4.4 statue. Now some sleuths at S4GRU have connected a few dots and found that an FCC filing for the LG D820 looks an awful lot like that leaked device.

The FCC filing is focused on the phone's wireless specifications, since that's what the Commission has to certify.

According to the aptly-named New Cell Phones Blog, photos of the "4.3-inch or 4.5-inch" Droid 5 have surfaced, which would confirm that Moto has another QWERTY slide-out keyboard in the works. The photos come to New Cell Phones courtesy of Weibo and show off a wireless charging coil. Other rumored features evidently include NFC and a resistance to both water and dust.

Nothing else is known about these photos, their veracity, or Motorola's plans for a Droid 5, but we'll certainly keep you updated when and if more details emerge.

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.

Late last month, Samsung announced an LTE-A-powered Galaxy S4 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor for Korea's SK Telecom network. The benchmarks – along with the speedtests – were mind-boggling, but it was extremely unclear whether the rest of the world would ever get a taste of everything this new GS4 has to offer. Thanks to a new leak over at AllAboutSamsung.de (and confirmed by SamMobile's sources), we now have strong reason to think that an international version, model number i9506, is on its way.

The HTC One Mini has been a pretty poorly kept secret for some time now, and while it has previously been rumored as an upcoming AT&T handset, we can now all but confirm this fact - with pictures! This is the AT&T "HTC One mini," (the model name in the settings menu has 'mini' in lower-case) as leaked to us by an anonymous tipster.

Now, as you'll notice, these photos have various areas blacked out.

Update: The post has now been published.

Just a few minutes ago, it seems someone over at the official HTC blog pulled the trigger on an HTC One Mini teaser campaign a bit early. A post titled "Little Things That Pack a BIG Punch" was live for a few moments, only to quickly disappear. It was a pretty obvious hint at the upcoming HTC One Mini, which is perhaps best-known at this point as HTC's worst-kept secret.

In what PhoneArena calls a "leaked internal memo," launch dates for the Verizon versions of the HTC One and the upcoming Moto X are allegedly revealed - August 1st and August 23rd, respectively. It also adds to the growing pile of evidence that the Moto X will be coming to Verizon sans-DROID branding. Is there any reason to take stock in this rather generic looking document, though?

My gut leaning is "yes," but there are caveats to leaked internal communications like these.

In what is bound to be the first of many more multi-photo leaks over the next month, Engadget has gotten its hands on an extensive set of snaps of the upcoming LG Optimus G2. Behold the imagery below, and read on for our take. The G2 has been previously leaked on multiple occasions, most recently in some video screencaps depicting LG's next flagship. LG also hasn't been shy on acknowledging the device's existence, teasing its Snapdragon 800 processor and August 7th launch event.
