What we're seeing here is a series of photos of the still-unofficial Apple iPhone 5S.

iPhone 5S leaked photo solidifies tip on lozenge flash

There's nothing like a good dual-LED flash upgrade after a long set of months and years only using the one. That's what's suggested for the iPhone 5S this week, with a second unique photo of the machine's back top-end appearing with the same setup: two bulbs, better than one. Could this one, single, unmistakable differentiator make the case for an iPhone 5 owner's upgrade later this year?

Samsung Galaxy S 4 LTE-Advanced appears disguised as field tests begin

It's time again to have a look at a device that isn't necessarily supposed to be seeing the light of day right quite yet. This machine you're seeing here was photographed by a micro-blogger going by the name of Palm, he or she having been relatively unknown - but notoriously Samsung-friendly to those that have been following him - for working with an abundance of Samsung devices. What this disguise likely surrounds is the Samsung Galaxy S 4 LTE-Advanced.

Nokia EOS aluminum body prototype leaks: unlikely to hit market

Nokia EOS aluminum body prototype leaks: unlikely to hit market

If you're thinking the leaked photos you're about to have a peek at below are going to be released as a final-form Nokia EOS, you might want to re-think your summer smartphone buying strategy. What we're seeing here are several angles on a less-than-production-quality iteration of a Nokia phone - not quite the same as the EOS that we'll be setting eyes on in less than a month (July 11th, that is). What's a bit more likely is that this was a prototype of the smartphone or a potential body for a next-generation Lumia.

Mirror’s Edge 2 leaks again: Tipped for Xbox One E3 2013 reveal

Much-rumored EA game Mirror's Edge 2 seems to have been prematurely given the official nod today, with a listing for the unannounced title spotted at EA's help site. Swiftly pulled - though not before a screencap could be taken - the listing didn't actually have any details of the game, but its existence alone is enough to seemingly confirm that it's in the pipeline, potentially for the Xbox One among other consoles.
