Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it would start selling the gold Galaxy S5 on May 30th. As it turns out, this is the launch date for all of the major carriers in the US. Come the end of this month, a blinged out version of the S5 will be available from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon as well.

With a simultaneous release across so many carriers, this isn't about exclusivity.

As was the the G2, LG's G3 is one of the most leaked high-end smartphones of the year, and the information just seems to keep on flowing. Today, GSM Arena posted images from an internal presentation on the G3 in Korea, and they basically confirm many of the device's suspected components.

Perhaps most importantly, the G3 will apparently be the first major smartphone to launch with a QHD (Quad HD) display, something long predicted as inevitable in the race to ever-denser screens.

Hey guys, how's the ol' Optimus G Pro holding up? Pretty well? Good news! That guy is about to get even better, as AT&T is pushing the Android 4.4.2 OTA starting now. That brings about a bunch of new features, including some battery improvements, Project Svelte (which just generally makes things faster), and more.

What's changing?

You can grab the update now by heading into the settings menu and hitting About phone > Software Update > Update now.

Even though Samsung went out of tis way to make the Galaxy S5 water and dust resistant, it seems to think there is still a place for an "Active" variant this time around. The device has shown up in a few videos and it seems to be destined for AT&T in the US.

Just like last year's GS4 Active, this one has physical buttons on the front in place of the capacitive/physical array on Samsung's regular devices.

Listen up, Explorers - Glass is receiving a minor OTA update this afternoon that does, well, two relatively minor and not all that exciting things. First, your Glass will now do this when the battery is very low and Glass is unable to power on because of it:

Why yes, that is a fun GIF. But the point obviously is to make it clearer when Glass needs a charger if you want to use it.

According to the Nikkei business wire, Toshiba announced today that the company will be providing the processing guts for Google's upcoming Project Ara modular smartphones. The release itself is pretty bare-bones - Toshiba says it will provide 3 different types of processors for the phone, and that while it will initially be the "preferred" supplier for those components, it will become their sole provider a year after Ara's initial rollout.

Did you buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 or an HTC One M8 recently? Prepare to be disappointed. In addition to rumors of a souped-up Galaxy S5 "Prime," the reliable Evleaks has posted what appears to be a full 360-degree rendering of an even newer flagship from HTC. The so-called One M8 Prime looks like a bigger, badder version of the M8 - note the relatively huge bump for the primary camera and a more flat and less rounded design overall.
