It certainly doesn’t look like it has a ‘three edged screen‘ as previously teased, but while it looks very similar to the Note Edge though it doesn’t appear to have the edges working separately from the main screen like the Galaxy Note Edge but looks like a less angular wrap-around screen.
It might be possible for the display to work separately when needed like if the device were to be in locked mode but for now we can only be certain that it will be showing the same content as the main display. Still, with MWC just around the corner this may or may not be exactly what the actual final phone might be like, except that they probably will be sharing the same design aesthetic with existing Samsung Galaxy devices.
Samsung and HTC may be grabbing all the headlines in the run up to MWC 2015 but other brands are also getting ready to show off their best and latest at the worlds biggest mobile technology showcase this March. One of the brands that is keen to impress is, Acer. Very little is known about what Acer will showcase at MWC but it looks like they have a lot to reveal with multiple smartphones and a new wearable being mentioned.
Whatever it is, we will be at the Acer launch even to bring you the latest updates as it happens. Make sure you follow us on Twitter and Facebook for our most comprehensive MWC coverage ever.
Early last week, LG had announced its premium Urbane smart watch that comes with a circular display and an upmarket all-metal design. Ahead of MWC 2015, they have just announced an upgraded version that comes with 4G LTE connectivity.
At first glance, it looks like a direct competitor to the Samsung Gear S and it even supports high quality VoLTE calls (Voice over LTE). To last longer on your wrist, the Urbane LTE comes with a 700mAh capacity unit (Standard Urbane: 410mAh), which is the largest for a smart watch but LG didn’t mention any battery life ratings. On top of that, LG has also included NFC which allows mobile payment without the need of taking out your smart phone from your pocket.
HTC is getting ready to showoff its latest smartphone and the brand wants to make sure you’re paying attention when the launch happens on March 1. The latest to come out from the brand is a teaser video that was released on HTC UK’s Twitter page, while it doesn’t reveal much in terms of product information, the “let them stare” claim is a bold one and one that has certainly gotten a lot of people curious with what HTC will be revealing.
Motorola has just announced the launch and availability of their 2nd gen Moto E, the latest member of their line of budget smartphones.
Considering the original Moto E was launched about nine months ago, the 2015 edition is a pretty big upgrade. Not only is the new Moto E bigger at 4.5-inches, it also has a more poweful processor and is going to be hitting the market worldwide very soon.

If you’re the sort that eats, drinks and sleeps football, you might be interested in HTC’s UEFA Collector’s Edition One M8 smartphone.
Announced in partnership with UK retailed Carphone Warehouse at an event with Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel and Arsenal Women’s goalkeeper Emma Byrne. The smartphone itself is a vanilla version of the HTC One M8 but it comes engraved with every Champions League winning team on the back of the chassis, from Marseille in 1992 to Real’s 10th tournament last season. This isn’t the first UEFA themed smartphone HTC has released either, with them releasing a similar one last year with a trophy engraved at the rear.
But if you want to get your hands on one, you will have to join the competition that the brand will be running through their Facebook, Twitter and G+ pages.

With 3 days to go until Samsung Unpacked 2015, we probably seeing the Samsung Galaxy S6 in its full glory ahead of launch. A set of new photos had emerged which claims to be Samsung’s latest flagship that claims to be taken from partner telco AT&T.
If these images are true, the Galaxy S6 does come with a refreshing new design which departs from the typical Samsung Galaxy models of old. Following the footsteps of the Galaxy A series, the Galaxy S6 will be having a unibody metal frame design, which means there’s no removable back covers to tinker with. Both front and back are said to be covered with glass and the metal frame has a smooth rounded edge which reminds of the current Sony Xperia Z3 along with a little hint of the iPhone 6.
