Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

One of the problems with leaks is that there is really no telling which leak is the most accurate one until the fated day finally arrives. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, whose leaks are starting to heat up as the August 13 announcement date fast approaches. Many aspects of the S Pen phablet remains in limbo, like the presence, or absence, of an auto eject mechanism for the stylus. But perhaps the most contentious component is the CPU, which is now again said to be an Exynos 7422.

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

Instagram for Android has a new edit screen

If you use Instagram on Android, you may be seeing a new edit screen that speeds up the sharing process (and if you're not, try updating the app - some users have had luck doing this). Some users are seeing a new so-called quick edit screen that reduces the editing and sharing process to a single screen. The screen allows those who want the more expansive process to use it, but for everyone else, filtering is reduced to swiping right and left.

Nextbit: Android 1.0 crew to “reboot” mobile with new smartphone

The software group known as Nextbit is turning into a smartphone company. With this change, they suggest that in today's mobile industry, "it's time for a reboot." They're planning on making a splash with executives from the original Android 1.0 team as well as a designer from HTC's "heyday." That's now-VP of Product Scott Croyle, a fellow who today suggests he's "really excited to work on a phone that 'feels" different from anything else out there.

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google announces cutting software ties between YouTube and their social network Google+. No longer will YouTube require a Google+ profile for new users looking to upload, comment, or create a channel. No longer will comments posted on a YouTube video also be posted on a user's Google+ profile. Freedom from one or the other is upon us. No longer will Google be pushing Google+ directly in to the comments section of YouTube, and both parties will be the better for it.

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Razer OUYA acquisition is all about games

Here's why being acquired by a company like Razer is great: not only will OUYA continue to be made in hardware form, the software will be expanding. According to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, Razer has acquired the software assets of OUYA and will start this party off right - by integrating OUYA games and their store into the Razer Forge TV - that's their Android TV device revealed earlier this year at CES 2015. Not only that, but the OUYA gaming console will continue to live on, and maybe even grow!

OnePlus 2 released in controlled leak

OnePlus 2 released in controlled leak

This morning several images of what we must assume is the final model OnePlus 2 have "leaked" via microbloggers. This device is supposed to be revealed in its entirety later today via a virtual reality launch as outlined earlier this year and pushed with a set of Google Cardboard units earlier this month. These images come with such high quality photography skills apparent that we must assume they've been leaked by OnePlus themselves - though with just a few hours to go before the final reveal, it's not like it matters all that much.

Microsoft just released an awesome Android launcher

Microsoft just released an awesome Android launcher

Microsoft's Arrow Launcher is out today in Beta, creating for the Google-made software an environment in which quickness is key. While the app may be in a "private beta" for now, Microsoft has also released the APK to the public - no need to participate in the troubleshooting involved in a Beta if you do not want. Inside this launcher is a reorganization of efforts for the Android universe, making three screens the center of the software: apps, contacts, and reminders. From here you'll find yourself cramped in - in a good way.

Baidu’s Android apps go green for better battery life

Baidu’s Android apps go green for better battery life

We’ve all been there: the excitement of getting a new smartphone, the fun of loading it up with your favorite apps, and then the frustration when your handset starts getting weighed-down and your battery runs flat. DU Battery Saver and DU Speed Booster, products from China’s biggest search engine company Baidu, admittedly can’t satiate your upgrade lust for the latest Android flagship. Instead, they promise something perhaps even more useful: the ability to squeeze more performance out of your existing phone and postpone the need to buy a new one. But for the app developers, those benefits are secondary to an even more ambitious goal: helping the environment. If you’re upgrading your phone less frequently, you’re reducing your e-waste footprint and energy usage and putting less strain on the planet.
