Oppo Representative: "N1 Coming Later This Year, Find N7 Coming Late 2014"

Most manufacturers tend to be coy when it comes to release dates, especially when it's customers asking rather than press or investors. But Chinese manufacturer Oppo sometimes shoots from the hip, as they did with a recent Google+ post. When asked about release dates from an inquisitive poster, someone using the official account replied with a general target release for two upcoming devices, the N1 and Find N7.

The N1 was recently leaked in all its minimalist glory, and though specs are thin on the ground, it looks like a contender for a flagship device with a relatively large screen.

[Weekend Poll] If These Leaked Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Images Are Real, Are You Actually Interested In Buying One?

It looks like some images of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, or at least a mockup used in an internal Samsung promo video, have leaked out. And, based on those images, this is apparently what the Galaxy Gear will look like in proportion to your wrist.

Large, one might say. Quite large, apparently - VentureBeat claims the Galaxy Gear will have a 3.0" display and seems to runs Android (or at least is capable of running some Android apps) in some sense of the word.

Photo Of Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2 Leaked, Complete With Ridiculous Physical Nav Buttons

Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 is due for a refresh along with its smartphone cousin. If you've been waiting for a high-end Samsung tablet (or just a tablet that's considerably larger than the current 10-inch breed), the folks at Korean site MovePlayer may have spotted it. A single photo of a hitherto unseen Galaxy Note 12.2 bearing the obviously huge screen and Samsung's increasingly ridiculous physical Home button was leaked earlier today.

[New App] Wanam Xposed Offers An Insane Amount Of Customization To Samsung Devices Running Android 4.2 Or Later

If you've got a late-model Samsung device and a desire to tinker, Wanam Xposed is for you. It's a module for the increasingly popular Xposed Framework (which means that those without root need not apply). If you have a stock Samsung device that runs Android 4.2 or later, Wanam Xposed opens up an incredible amount of customization options for TouchWiz and other settings.

Visual and audio tweaks include colors or transparency in the notification bar, customizations for the battery, clock, and date displays, transparent quick settings, 180-degree rotation support, disabling Samsung's dingy boot sound, and a dark theme for the multi-window view.

@evleaks Posts Alleged Galaxy Note 3 Lock Screen Wallpaper

Perennial purveyor of privileged information @evleaks has delivered a nice weekend "present", posting a lock screen wallpaper from the yet-unannounced Galaxy Note 3.

The wallpaper, which weighs 6.9MB, has a resolution of 1920x1920, implying that the Note 3 has a predictable enough 1080x1920 resolution.

It shouldn't be long until we hear more about the Galaxy Note 3 (David and I will be on the ground at IFA 2013) and hopefully see even more goodies from the device, but if you want to grab the wallpaper right now, just hit the link in @evleaks' tweet above.

More Details And Images Of That Wacky Sony Camera Attachment Leak Out, Rumored Price Of $250-450

A few weeks ago, we caught a glimpse of a new camera attachment from Sony that appears to put an entire camera on the back of your mobile device, in addition to the existing camera. I have to admit – it's kind of a neat concept, if properly executed. Today, a few new images – as well as some details about how the lenses will work – have surfaced over at  Sony Alpha Rumors.

AT&T Galaxy Mega (6.3) Review: I'm Not Sure I Should Like It... But I Kind Of Do

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is big. Really, really big. That is quite literally the entirety of the list of interesting features that distinguish it from other Samsung smartphones. It is a shamelessly single-minded product. In a way, that's a good thing - it's certainly a big part of what even makes it possible to sell the Mega for just $480 off contract ($150 on).

That's because the Mega really doesn't mess around when it comes to smart cost-cutting.

HTC One mini Review: The Awkward, RAM-Deprived Middle Child

The HTC One mini is, in many respects, very similar to its larger, older sibling, the HTC One. It has a [mostly] aluminum body, BoomSound speakers (though they've been noticeably downgraded), and HTC's Ultrapixel camera. It runs Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5, and its 720p S-LCD2 display with Gorilla Glass 3 is breathtakingly good for a "mid-range" phone.

So, how does it cost a full $170 less than the HTC One?
