Prior to the blast from the past issue on Apple’s iPhones, you wouldn’t think that “history” could directly affect our handheld devices – at least not in the literal sense. In light of the 1970s hitting Cupertino’s darling in timely fashion, it looks like Android hackers have been busy too.
This time, it does a lot more damage than its Unix-based brethren. Like wiping all data on your smartphone and spreading the exploit further through random calls and texts.

Competing in a market with Apple and Samsung is definitely tough to do, more so when you have affordable Chinese brands chipping away at your market share. You have to juggle between innovating, designing, marketing and setting price points. So far, Sony has been on the short end of the stick but they were once in a very different position.

It takes a lot to remove a word from your smartphone model’s identity; evolving the Sony Xperia M series meant dropping the “Aqua” name on the Xperia M5 Dual. It’s going to take a lot more than product placement in a Bond film to revive the Japanese giant, or at least their mobile division, if they want to continue the Xperia brand.

The new Android M or now known as Marshmallow is just around the corner and it is expected to be released along with 2 new Nexus devices. With the new OS version going live, Google has released its latest Android breakdown figures based on active devices on the Android and Google Play ecosystem.
While the current Android Lollipop is gaining momentum taking up 21% (inclusive of Android 5.0 and 5.1), majority of Android devices are still running on KitKat which stands at 39.2%.
Thanks to a new leak from @evleaks, what we have here might be the lower half and physical keyboard of one of BlackBerry’s upcoming Android smartphones. The company is in fact planning to launch at least two new Android devices this year, one codenamed the BlackBerry Venice and the BlackBerry Prague.
UPDATE: Honor 7 is now official. Similar to the Huawei P8 but it gets a 20MP camera, fingerprint scanner and special voice controls.
New leaked images of the Honor 7 have hit the internet just ahead of the device’s launch that’s due to hit anytime. The new images tease a premium metal body as well as the previously teased fingerprint scanner.
We all know how much of a battery guzzler Android Lollipop can be, and this is set to chance with Android M with a few extra tricks up its sleeves to keep your battery lasting longer. To showcase how much power savings the new features bring in a real life setting, a Nexus 5 was loaded with a copy of the Android M Developer Preview and measured against the same model with Android 5.1.1 in it.
If the Sony Xperia C4 isn’t good enough for your selfie needs, you might want to check out their upcoming model that’s codenamed Lavender. Initially speculated with a front facing 13MP shooter, serial leaker @onleaks has revealed more details of its front design.
With Sony implementing its omni-balance design throughout its latest product range, the upcoming selfie-device is looking to stand out with an edge-to-edge display. This is similar to Sharp’s AQUOS Crystal series but Sony is still retaining the top piece for its earpiece and front facing camera. Whether bezels are a bad thing is a separate debate altogether but this new design could be Sony’s new design breakthrough since the Xperia S.
The smartphone has the same general looks as it’s predecessor as well as the bezel-less look but has a larger screen as well as updated internals. It may not be the thinnest at 11mm thick but due to it’s bezel-less display (like the original Crystal) the front camera is placed under the screen alongside the earphone speaker that sports bone conducing tech so you can still use it like a standard smartphone.
By the looks of things, Sony has a new Android smartphone in the works that apparently has little to no bezel. Thanks to twitter leaker @upleaks, we have more information about the device codenamed the Sony Lavender.
