If you can tear your gaze away from KitKat and Nexus news today, there's actually other stuff going on in the Android world. The indefatigable Evleaks has just posted what he claims is a photo (of a photo) of the Moto G, which he himself was sent via a tip. It looks a lot like the Moto X, but as some have predicted, with more low-end specs.
According to the tweet, the phone will use the same screen size and resolution as the Moto X, and both the front and rear of the body look remarkably similar to Motorola's current flagship. Read More
It looks like last night's press shot of the Nexus 5 from @evleaks wasn't the only morsel of Nexus news we were meant to receive this weekend, after all. Our favorite gadget leaker has provided another treat, this time sharing a press shot of the white (well... black and white) Nexus 5, along with a possible release date - "11/1".
This render looks more refined than @evleaks' shot of the black Nexus 5 and, while the front remains black, the new shot makes the white N5 look downright appealing. Read More
If you've been on pins and needles for another fix of Nexus hype, @evleaks has provided something you may like. In a post to Twitter this evening, @evleaks shared a new press render of the Nexus 5 - one that matches the Telus Nexus 5 leak we covered last week.
As usual, @evleaks' post is sparse on information, reading only "Nexus 5, by LG, 2013." And this isn't exactly something we haven't seen before - at this point, we've pretty much seen the Nexus 5 from all angles. Read More
As if you needed any convincing, EVleaks has once again demonstrated that he's some kind of wizard at finding and disseminating press shots of upcoming phones. This weekend's leaks include HTC's shiny new One max [sic] in both AT&T and Verizon flavors, posted to EVleaks' Google+ account. We'd heard about a Verizon version from HTC at launch, but the AT&T model is new, if not unexpected.
You'll note a common theme among these plus-sized phones: carrier logos swapped out for HTC's customary logo between the back and home buttons on the One family. Read More
Okay, okay, there are many reasons not to be interested in this story, and I'm going to acknowledge these right off the bat. The Galaxy S4 Mini is not exactly a new device anymore, and it wasn't nearly as powerful as the flagship device it's based on even when it was. Likewise, people aren't likely to turn to Sprint in search of a speedy network connection. In a way, the device and the carrier are a match made in heaven. Read More
Noted leaker and poster of pictures @evleaks just released an image that appears to show an unannounced Samsung Galaxy phone with a curved AMOLED screen. Past devices with curved glass, like the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, have had curves running from top to bottom. Not this one, though. Samsung's next device may sport a left to right curve, which makes it look kind of like a soggy taco shell.
The last round of vague hints from Samsung had this device pegged for an October release in South Korea, but nothing beyond that. Read More
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. Read More
Take a look at that image. That one right down there. See that? It's the first reliable bit of information that indicates what the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will look like.
Perennial leakster @evleaks just posted two screenshots on his Twitter profile, purportedly from the Manager companion app for the Galaxy Gear. They show an NFC pairing system not unlike the latest Sony Smartwatch sans strap, a few apps in a screen not unlike the Pebble Smartwatch app, and not much else. Read More
American carriers sometimes get phones later than the rest of the world. Lately the situation has been improving, especially with big-name devices and a few exclusives. But when we see evidence of an upcoming low-end phone that's almost a year old, and one that's been supplanted by a new version, we can't help but sigh. So it is with the Galaxy S III Mini, which was just pegged by Evleaks for an AT&T release. Read More
HTC's yet-unannounced Zara isn't exactly a stranger to the rumor circuit. We've heard all the important specs, but @evleaks has just given us a look at what appears to be a slightly censored press shot.
For those who may not remember, the Zara is rumored to be the midrange lovechild of the One and Desire lines, with (according to @evleaks) a dual core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.5" qHD (960x540) display, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable via microSD), a 2100mAh battery pack, and Android 4.3 with Sense 5.5 on top.
