Just a little while ago, the first purported press shots of the LG Nexus 4 hit Twitter, thanks to EVLeaks. Almost immediately after looking at the image, though, it's clear something's... not right.
Let's start with the notification bar - look familiar? If you've ever run the AOKP ROM, it should. Both the centered clock and battery percentage (the one actually in the battery icon - it's barely visible in the render) are signature customizations of the ROM. Read More
We actually first heard about the upcoming Spectrum 2 for Verizon back in late August, but we now have full details, along with a couple of images of the device, thanks to Best Buy. The Spectrum 2's page went live at BB just a little while ago, revealing basically everything we didn't already know about the device.
- 4.7" 1280x720 display
- 1GB RAM
- 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
- microSD card slot
- 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
- 5 3/4" x 2 3/4" x 3/8", 5.2oz.
A couple of weeks ago, Xperia blog posted what appeared to be User-Agent Profile information revealing the existence of Sony's purported upcoming flagship, the C650X codenamed Odin.
The information seemed to point toward an Xperia device running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, with separate rumors suggesting a 5" display at 1080x1920 resolution (441ppi), a Qualcomm S4 Pro quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM.
Today, a photo has surfaced that, according to Concept-Phones, depicts the yet-unseen Odin. Read More
UPDATE 3: EVLeaks has now rescinded his previous statements.
While we don't appreciate the manner in which EVLeaks (and others) initially approached this situation with conspiracy theories, baseless accusations, and speculation, we appreciate EVLeaks' withdrawal of previous comments, and our readers' support through the entire episode. Read More
We just posted some internal photos from Staples showing that the 32GB Nexus 7 is, indeed, making its way into retail stockrooms. And that's exciting. What we didn't show you, though, was one more photo from our intrepid office supply tipster, which contains some rather juicy information regarding the fate of the 8GB version of the Nexus 7. Take a look.
This is exactly what it appears to be: aisle end cap instructions for the upcoming holiday season. Read More
We already know the 32GB Nexus 7 exists. Some guy actually got one by mistake - in Japan. We've seen it at online stores in the US, online stores in Europe, and even Canada. It is bar-none Google's worst-kept secret ever.
What we have not seen, though, is a 32GB Nexus 7 actually physically in these United States. As of today, we know they're here - at Staples. Read More
The notorious @evleaks Twitter account is at it again, and this time it's showing off specs and an image of the purported LG Nexus 4. There really isn't any new information here, but this lines up with all the previous rumors we've heard over the last several weeks:
- 4.7" 1280x768 display
- Quad-core APQ8064 CPU
- 2GB RAM
- 8GB/16GB on-board storage
- 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
- 2100mAh battery
- 9.1mm thick
- Android "JB MR1"
Given evleaks' previous accuracy, combined with current rumors, it's probably safe to say that this is the real deal. Read More
There's no secret anymore. Hasn't been for a while now. But, just in case you need a little more convincing that the 32GB Nexus 7 is a real thing, it has now made an appearance on two more retailers' websites: Dixons Retail for €199.99 (screenshot below) and Argos for £199.99. It also made a brief cameo at Best Buy Canada for $269, but the page has since been pulled. Good thing we have Google Cache to prove it was there. Read More
Add another chapter to the Nexus 7 32GB saga. We've seen it once, twice, three times - and now it has showed up on Staples Advantage (their site for business users) with an estimated availability date of October 18th. That's probably just some sort of placeholder, though - it's highly unlikely that we'll see it show up in just two days' time.
The price shows as a few dollars less than the 16GB version, which lines up with previous rumors that the 32 may actually replace the 16 - a questionable move on Google's part, no doubt. Read More
Earlier today, a couple of rather exciting photos found on Picasa began hitting news sites showing what could be a leaked device called the Sony Nexus X. Of course, during Nexus season, any rumor or glance at a possible new device is always exciting, but sometimes it's worth while to take a step back and consider whether what we're looking at is actually what it appears to be. Our penchant for putting leaked images under the microscope led us to do a bit of investigating. Read More
