Originally running by the codename Lavender, the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra “selfie phone” has been spotted via a leaked manual for said device. Previously we’ve seen a few photos of the phone and now its confirmed that the phone indeed will have bezel-less sides much like the Sharp AQUOS Crystal 2.
Not too long after its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge hits the market, the Korean smart phone maker is eager to launch 2 more phablets ahead of its normal schedule. The Galaxy Note series which is often launched during IFA in Berlin annually, will be seeing an earlier launch this year as early as 12th/13th August.
Unlike last year where they have launched the Galaxy Note 4 along with its curve display Galaxy Note edge, Samsung will be introducing its Galaxy Note 5 productivity phablet that comes with an S-Pen and the Galaxy S6 edge+, which is a bigger version of its current double curve screen smart phone. The model names have been confirmed and now we finally get to see the devices in its full glory thanks to a couple of fresh leaks.
Xiaomi has just recently launched their long awaited flagship Mi Note, and now you can snag one for yourself quicker thanks to Uber. In conjunction with the launch, Xiaomi has partnered up with Uber in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore for a unique first-of-its-kind collaboration on demand delivery of the device.
Motorola is planning a launch next week and its been predicted that they are going to launch at least two new smartphones, namely the Moto G (2015) and the Moto X (2015) respectively. The third gen Moto X has shown up in pictures a few times already, and this time its been spotted with a front facing flash.
The Galaxy Note 5 won’t be getting an “edge” sibling this time around but instead Samsung will be releasing a Galaxy S6 edge+, which is basically a bigger version of the S6 edge. Now a purported dummy phone of the S6 edge+ has appeared and with no surprises, it looks like a stretched S6 edge.
As you would expect, it has the same exterior design with its 5.1″ standard edge model including a double curve screen at the front. When compared to the Galaxy Note 4, it does look larger than its purported 5.3-5.4″ display size. The Galaxy Note 4 gets a 5.7″ Quad HD AMOLED display and judging from the picture above, the S6 edge+ might be having a similar screen size.
We’ve already heard that Google’s latest Nexus device is in the works, with the company already having produced multiple Nexus devices with the likes of HTC, Samsung, LG and Motorola. The latest one has Google working with Huawei and Twitter tipster @evleaks has dropped some hints on whats to come on the device.
The next generation Moto G looks to be getting an upgrade in both the style and specs department with news of customisation options as well as a much welcomed 2GB variant, much like the Redmi 2 Enhanced edition.
We’ve been hearing off and on that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is set to be launched soon, and according to new information it will be launched on August 12th, alongside the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
The report also brings to light some new details about the phones as well. For starters the Galaxy Note 5 will look like a larger version of the Galaxy S6 smartphone and won’t have a microSD slot, but will be home to a very thin bezel.
Samsung has always been on a 2 flagship per year cycle with the Galaxy S series launched earlier of the year followed by its Galaxy Note phablet series in Q3. The Galaxy S6 is still the most advanced Android smart phone at the moment but for those prefer bigger phones, the new Galaxy Note 5 launch is just right around the corner.
Taking its performance up a notch, Samsung will still be using its in-house developed Exynos processor but this time it will combine its Octa-Core 64-bit processor, RAM, GPU, LTE modem and storage into a single chip solution. In terms of RAM, the folks at Sammobile had confirmed that the Galaxy Note 5 will join the big boys by offering 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM. So far the Mi Note Pro and the upcoming OnePlus 2 are the only devices that officially use the same type (LPDDR4) of RAM.
Not too long ago we got treated to leaked product photos of the upcoming Moto G 2015, and now it seems we have leaked renders of the phone itself from all angles. While the images look close to the actual phone, just be aware that it isn’t confirmed to be official yet.
