Case Makers are Spamming Amazon With Nexus 5 (2015) Renders That May or May Not be Legit

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 assembled the newest from Samsung, Motorola, and LG in a spec showdown of sorts. It’s a simple paper comparison, but it almost always gets the job done.

Like in past years where Apple unveils an “S” model, they kept the same frame of a phone, but upgraded the internals. 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…)

LG Announces Rolly, Industry-First Solid Rollable Keyboard

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.
