Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

ASUS may be content with leaving us with only a 10-second teaser of what sounds like a dual camera smartphone, that doesn't mean we won't be able to see more information elsewhere. In this case, "elsewhere" happens to be the folders of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which handles certification of Bluetooth-enabled devices. But while the filing does give us more details than what ASUS is willing to share, it unfortunately paints a picture of a ZenFone that might not match ASUS' hype.

Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 photos leak, no launch date yet

Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 photos leak, no launch date yet

The still unannounced Z1 is Samsung's latest, perhaps its last, hurrah to get the Tizen platform on a smartphone. Already delayed by a few weeks, at least based on initial rumors, the smartphone has now been spotted in a few press materials not yet meant for public eyes. But we've seen this before and we've seen press materials before, even official ones. None of which mattered in the end. The biggest question on everyone's mind now is "when" (perhaps other than "why").

Galaxy S6: new leaked images point to aluminum body

As speculation over the next model of Samsung's flagship Galaxy smartphone, one rumor has been getting the most attention: Whether the device will finally move on from using plastic and upgrade to a metal chassis. While there have been several reports already about the Galaxy S6 sporting an aluminum body, several images have been released that could very well be considered the first leaks. In addition, a shipping manifest hints that there could be at least one Galaxy S6 being used for prototype and testing purposes.

Google tipped in effort to build Android into future cars

Google tipped in effort to build Android into future cars

According to unnamed sources that spoke to Reuters, Google is preparing to take its Android Auto to the next level, and will introduce a version of its software in the future that is built directly into cars. This embedded version of Android will have several perks over the current iteration, including doing away with the need to plug a smartphone into the infotainment center's USB. The platform won't be without its hurdles, however, and its embedded nature could be its undoing.

Report: Xiaomi not as profitable as you might think

Report: Xiaomi not as profitable as you might think

Every time we talk about Xiaomi, we’re left with a touch of trepidation. Regardless of how you feel about their iOS copying (which is fairly blatant, regardless of what Xiaomi says), getting any Xiaomi handset is tough. They sell out in seconds — literally — and often don’t return for weeks. Xiaomi is also the top smartphone vendor in their home country of China, according to Canalys, so they must be really profitable, right? Maybe not. A regulatory filing shows Xiaomi made just over $50 million profit in 2013.

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

It is no secret that Microsoft wants to take its smartphone platform to devices even lower on the hardware spectrum than its Lumia 5XX series. That desire might actually soon take flesh, if this Lumia 435 that has been repeatedly sighted and passed around the Internet really does take flight. This low-end smartphone from Microsoft Mobile will practically fill in the missing slot in Microsoft's lineup, a slot that has so far been occupied by the non-Windows Asha line and a bit by the Android-powered Nokia X.

Windows 10 build 9901 leak: prettier Cortana, better Modern UI

Windows 10 build 9901 leak: prettier Cortana, better Modern UI

It is still a good month or so before Microsoft unveils the Consumer Preview of Windows 10, formerly known as Threshold, and it will still be a few months before consumers can actually get their hands on it. But if the features and changes that are being showcased in this leaked build of Windows 10, specifically build number 9901, then consumers might indeed want to get their hands on it, in contrast to the rather divisive Windows 8.

GameStop leak says three Nintendo Amiibos discontinued

GameStop leak says three Nintendo Amiibos discontinued

You might recall that earlier this week the Internet was up in arms about whether Nintendo really was planning to nix a few of its Amiibos. Some outlets were reporting that Nintendo had confirmed plans to discontinue some of the models, a screenshot was floating around from a Nintendo rep that said differently, and others were receiving vague statements that didn't make an answer clear one way or the other. Now a GameStop leak has surfaced that might settle the matter entirely.

Alleged Galaxy S6 benchmarks surface via AnTuTu

Alleged Galaxy S6 benchmarks surface via AnTuTu

Samsung didn’t do as well as it hoped with the Galaxy S5 smartphone when it hit the market. The phone sold in decent numbers, but those numbers were about 40% less than what Samsung expected. That means Samsung has a lot to prove to consumers who think it is falling behind in the smartphone market. The next major smartphone from Samsung is expected to be the Galaxy S6 and some benchmarks of this device have allegedly leaked.
