According to Korean site underKG, the pictures below are of the new Nexus 5, which people keep oddly referring to as the Nexus 5X, but will probably just be called Nexus 5 (2015). Whatever. It’s a name. And these are supposed pictures of it. (more…)
LG is sending out invites to press, this morning, to an event they are hosting on October 1 in New York City. Details or hints of what to expect at the event weren’t revealed, but rumors of an LG “V10” phone with a secondary ticker display have surfaced within recent weeks and could be the focus. (more…)
Since we are potentially getting close to the launch of new Nexus phones, case makers are doing that thing where they start pre-selling cases for yet-to-be-announced phones to generate buzz, get their name out there, and hopefully sell a bunch of cases to suckers. But not only that, they are doing that thing where they supposedly reveal the phone’s design before its creator can. Like, check out the image above from casemaker Ringke, who is claiming that this is what the new Nexus 5 (2015) (or Nexus 5x or 2nd gen, or whatever the hell the internet is calling it) will look like. They aren’t even holding back either.
The renders inside these cases look like previous leaks, with cameras, flashes, and fingerprint sensors all in specific spots we have seen before. We have USB Type-C ports and nipple humps and buttons in all the right places. We have dual front-facing stereo speakers too! Looking good, renders! (more…)
How does the newly announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus stack up to the best of the moment from Android? Well, in the table below, you can see, at least on paper.

We have a new A9 64-bit processor, upgraded 12MP camera, new 3D Touch display technology, and, well, I think that’s it. They may have upgraded RAM and the battery as well, though Apple doesn’t exactly like to be upfront with that info. As we have it, we’ll be sure to add it to the table below.
Here you go. (more…)

Set to be unveiled at IFA next month, LG announced a new rollable keyboard called Rolly today, labeling it as an “industry first.” The keyboard is rather unique, featuring an extremely compact, yet somewhat long design when rolled up. However, when unrolled and out for use, it has a solid full QWERTY keyboard, able to be connected directly to a smartphone and tablet via LG’s software. (more…)
Back in late July, it was reported that LG was planning a “super premium” smartphone for the 2nd half of 2015. It was thought that a second premium device for 2015 could help boost mobile device sales, but now, it appears a super premium device from LG for the second half of 2015 may not be in the works.
