Vodafone Netherlands outs Galaxy S6, Galaxy S Edge names

We had quite a few rumors about HTC's MWC 2015 contender the past few days. Now it's time to turn our gaze back to Samsung's tag team. While there is very little doubt as to what the flagship will be named, which will be the Galaxy S6, we're now seeing some indication that its curved edge variant might be named a wee bit differently. Vodafone Netherlands has, accidentally or otherwise, put up a placeholder page for the Galaxy S6 and in the page's source code also lies the name of the Galaxy S Edge.

Sony may not have the Xperia Z4 ready for MWC 2015

With all the CES hype earlier this month, one company did a great job at quietly wowing us. Sony brought forth some great new imaging devices, as well as a grown-up version of their Smartwatch. SmartEyeglass might be the consumer heads-up wearable we actually want, too. We dismissed mobile from them at CES, as we — along with just about everyone else — assumed MWC this March would give us new Sony mobile devices to fawn over.

This device has 1TB of storage inside as well - if you actually want to use it for its intended functionality, of course. You could potentially also use it for a mirror, as it is exceptionally reflective and set at an angle that supports you looking at yourself.

iPhone 6s mini: do you need another small smartphone?

Rumors abound, Apple may release another 4-inch iPhone in the near future.

This handset would - unsurprisingly - look and feel similar to the iPhone 6. Components will likely match those of the iPhone 5s, fingerprint sensor and 8-megapixel camera included - and sell for the lowest price point as the iPhone 5s does now.
