Sprint Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge Promotion Leaked Ahead Of MWC Announcement

Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy S6, and a curved-screen variant called the Galaxy S6 Edge, at its Mobile World Congress announcement early next month. The phones look like this. Aside from a few specs and information on prices and dates, that's about all you need to know. But the leaked images were pretty tiny, so Sprint has been kind enough to leak some more for us. It doesn't include the bottom portion of the phone, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess there's a home button down there.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Gold Box Offers The BLU Studio 6.0 HD Phablet For $130 ($60 Off)

Do you need a great unlocked phone for under $200? Do you want one that's bigger than the ones Motorola offers in that price range? Then you'd be hard-pressed to find a better candidate than the BLU Studio 6.0 HD. While the phone's specs are decidedly low-end, the $189 retail price makes it an awesome deal for those who are cash strapped, or heck, just those who don't want to spend $600 or more on a Galaxy Note.

Sony Expands Folding@Home Compatibility To Lollipop And Non-Xperia Devices, Though It's Still Incompatible With Many

Sony's Folding@Home app turns your Android device into a weapon in the war against diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's by contributing your spare computing power to research. It entered the Play Store in early January as a beta exclusively available to certain Xperia phones. Now Sony is expanding the experience to other hardware, including devices running Android Lollipop.

Here you can see Folding@Home running on my HTC One M7, a non-Sony device with the latest version of Android.

Motorola Gives Its Camera App A Flat, Teal Icon In Latest Update

Motorola ships a mostly stock-looking build of Android on its devices, but it does pack in a few exclusive software tweaks. Exhibit A: Moto devices can load up the camera with a flick-to-launch gesture. Motorola ships its own app to make this possible, which until now came with the stock KitKat icon. Today Motorola has updated the app with a unique look of its own.

Verizon Xperia Z2 Tablet Gets An OTA Update With PS4 Remote Play Support And A Few Other Tweaks

I don't know how many tablets Verizon typically sells, especially if you limit that to non-iPads. But however many of you picked up the admittedly neat Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet from Big Red, check your status bar for an update alert. Today's software update adds something even neater: the ability to remotely play games on your PlayStation 4 over your home Wi-Fi network. You'll need the official Remote Play app and a Dual Shock 4 controller to take advantage of it.

Silent Circle Buys Out Geeksphone To Get Full Control Of Blackphone, Plans To Unveil More Devices And Services At MWC

Remember Blackphone? Chances are you haven't seen it on store shelves.

The phone was a joint project between Silent Circle and hardware partner Geeksphone. Today the former has announced it's buying out the latter, giving it full control over the Blackphone project.

Blackphone relies on a custom version of Android creatively called PrivatOS, which uses a combination of privacy-focused apps and encryption services to reduce how much information leaks out.

Google+ Gets A Much-Needed Facelift For Mobile Browsers And Changes URL Structure To Match Desktop Version

Have you ever used Google+ on a mobile browser? It has never been very fun. Trying to share something or make sense of a link was no better. However, after over a year without noticeable improvements for mobile browsers, it has finally gotten a revamp. In fact, it's arguably a better experience than the current Google+ app for Android.

Samsung Electronics Starts Mass Producing The Industry's First 128GB Universal Flash Storage, Almost Certainly Galaxy S6-Bound

Before every MWC event, Samsung gradually unveils bits and pieces of its semiconductor innovations that not-so-suprisingly end up inside its line of imminent Galaxy S devices.
