On August 21, one final leak from the prolific @evleaks account showcased what we could expect to see with the Moto X+1, Motorola’s upcoming hero device and successor to the successful Moto X from 2013. Now, a new leak from a Brazilian retailer has shed some light on a few key specs, which corroborates previous rumors, as well as gives us a clue to what’s new for customization options.
Motorola and Verizon have seen success with their Droid lineup in the past, but for some that may feel like a long time ago. While the most recent lineup was certainly noteworthy in its own way, it looks like the pair of companies could be coming to market with a handset that could really catch some eyes.
When Samsung initially unveiled their metal-wrapped Galaxy Alpha a little more than a week ago, they confirmed that the device would go on sale beginning in September, but there were little details actually provided. For anyone who has been waiting to get their hands on the device, and would like to preorder it, if you happen to live in the United Kingdom, your time has almost arrived.
At this point, for every person waiting for the Galaxy Note 4, every tease Samsung releases about the upcoming device has to be borderline painful. But, at the same time, we can’t get enough. Thankfully Samsung isn’t slowing down, as they’ve released a new teaser for the upcoming device, this time focused on the included accessory and the handwriting functionality it provides.
There has been a movement sweeping across the United States as of late (and in some parts of the globe, too), that sees individuals putting themselves under a bucket of water filled with ice. It’s designed to raise awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, and it has indeed raised quite a bit of money throughout this stretch of awareness.
Google today announced on its Inside Search blog that it is bringing simultaneous support for up to five languages in Google Now.
At this point, we’re just waiting for Motorola to officially announce what we already know. We’ve already seen what’s believed to be a “near final” prototype of the handset, seen the specs breakdown, and seen the front panel in the wild. Now, one final leak shows us that familiar design once again.
Over the course of the last few weeks, we’ve seen quite a bit about Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z3 Compact, including a detailed, albeit unofficial, specifications breakdown. We’ve reportedly even seen the front panel compared to that of the “regular” Xperia Z3. Not so much on the Xperia Z3 by itself, though. That changes today, thanks to photos seen on a Chinese certification website.
Samsung has a big announcement coming up on September 3, and many people believe it’s going to be the next iteration of the popular phablet lineup under the Galaxy Note brand. The Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to feature plenty of new features, but once again one particular feature has cropped up to entice us before the official announcement.
