Now that HTC is off stage at Mobile World Congress (MWC), it’s time for Samsung to dominate the rest of your life. OK, that’s a bit excessive, but with the soon-to-be-announced Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, expect Samsung to try and return to its pre-2014 form. All signs currently point to these two phones being Samsung’s best in years. They are completely re-done from the ground up, with more glass, more metal, and less gimmicks. At least, that’s what we are crossing fingers for.
Below, you will find a live stream of Samsung’s Unpacked 2015 event. The show kicks off at 9:30AM Pacific (12:30PM Eastern). You will also find a live blog featuring a live chat with the DL staff.
This should be good. Like, this should be really good. (more…)
AT&T announced this morning that it is the first US carrier to confirm that it will carry LG’s new all-metal “luxury” smartwatch, the Watch Urbane. So we are clear, they didn’t announce that they will be the first to carry, only that they are the first carrier to confirm that they will carry it at some point. Why that’s worth an announcement is a discussion for another day, but that’s what we have here. (more…)
If the HTC One M9 doesn’t look like a re-hashing of last year’s One (M8), only with upgraded internals and a single camera on the back, then HTC has easily pulled off the greatest leak troll job in recent memory. Chances are, they haven’t done that and the One M9 really is just a re-hashing of last year’s One (M8). Call it disappointing or smart, it will all be official shortly.
HTC will take the stage at Mobile World Congress (MWC) at 7AM Pacific (10AM Eastern) to tell us what is and isn’t real, and also what may be a surprise.
You can watch the stream with us live, plus join in on a little live blog below. (more…)
Samsung confirmed to us this afternoon that they are indeed hosting the next Unpacked event in Barcelona, at MWC, on March 1 to reveal “What’s Next.” The invite that was first posted earlier this morning is the same invite we received this afternoon.
Of course, we are assuming that we will see the Samsung Galaxy S6 at the event, but could see more. Rumors of a Galaxy S Edge have heated up over the last couple of weeks, with the invite potentially adding fuel to that fire, thanks to a swooping curve or angular line that runs across it. (more…)
“What’s next” reads a purported invite to the Samsung Galaxy S6 event that could take place on March 1 in Barcelona (same day as HTC’s). That quote is joined by a mostly black card that features a squiggly line, one that reminds me a lot of the Galaxy Note Edge. If this is the real invitation, is Samsung really about to Edge everything? (more…)
According to Xperia Blog, trackers of all things Sony Xperia, the chances of the Xperia Z4 or another flagship phone from Sony debuting at MWC in a month are slim. Their sources suggest that Sony is waiting for the “summer” to let loose their next set of phones. (more…)
On the heels of last night’s report, which suggested the Samsung Galaxy S6 won’t feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, new reports out of Korea claim to know even more about Samsung’s 2015 flagship, like the day it will debut and a certain feature that will be missing. Included in one of these reports is also word out of LG’s camp, with a note mentioning that we may not see the G4 for a while. (more…)
Thanks to HTC, we have something to hypebeast on this lovely Friday morning. In a “save the date” event invite sent out through what I can only imagine was HTC’s Euro press team, we have a date to mark on our calendars for the unveiling of the company’s next flagship phone. Titled “Utopia in Progress,” the invite doesn’t mention much, other than that we all need to join them “to see what’s next,” in Barcelona, Spain, on March 1. (more…)
