In wake of the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, Samsung may need to bump its launch timeline of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge. If that is the case, it should be no shock to see many rumors and supposed leaks flooding the web as we enter the last part of 2016.
In the latest piece to make the rounds, specifications for the yet-to-be-announced device have surfaced, though, there’s no telling how accurate they might be. With the best guess being that Samsung will unveil its newest phones at MWC in February of 2017, there’s still plenty of time for things to change. (more…)

Not surprisingly, Android news is pretty slow these days, as it always is in the lead-up to a new version of the OS. Google more than likely doesn’t want to out anything too fun at the moment, since we are only two months or so from stable Android N going public and new Nexus devices running it arriving alongside it.

Today, thanks to a report out of Android Police, we may have an early spec list for the supposed smaller of the two phones, the Sailfish. (more…)
Back in January, an “often-reliable leakster” over at Weibo suggested that HTC has been given the green light by Google to make not only one of the next Nexus phones, but two.

So this photo surfaced today. People think it’s the next Moto X, which could be the Moto X (2016) or Moto X (4th Gen) or Moto X (Pure Moods Edition). We don’t really know what it is, though. It could be fake. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is fake. Should we talk about it, if it is fake? Eh, why not. It’s Hump Day! (more…)
