Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

The last time we saw anything about the Galaxy S6, it was a nearly bezel-less device that seemed far too good to be true. And hey, it was; people quickly discovered the device was a photoshopped pic of a different Samsung device, so we’re back to square one on the rumor/candyland board. A new rumor, though very much an eyebrow-raising one, suggests Samsung is gong aluminum with the Galaxy S6. Also, they’re getting into the curved screen game, if the talk is at all accurate.

HTC Hima in detail: before the fact

HTC Hima in detail: before the fact

The HTC One M8 was a direct descendant of the HTC One M7. Before that, there was the HTC One S and the HTC One X. Before that, there was a whole mess of phones released by the manufacturer with a lot less cohesive a plan than HTC is working with today. Today we've got codename "HTC Hima" to look forward to. What follows are specifications for the 2015 HTC flagship, along with sensible reasons for each specification affirmation. This is what we'll more than likely see on March 1st, 2015.

Galaxy S6: what we’ve heard (and want to see) ahead of MWC 2015

Galaxy S6: what we’ve heard (and want to see) ahead of MWC 2015

Now that we’ve had a good look at what the Galaxy S6 from Samsung might end up looking like, we’re starting to wonder what the device will be as a whole. Is it really going to have those ultra-slim bezels we saw in the leaked pic, or was that a really good fake? Do the benchmarks hint at the real internals, or just some basic test specs? We don’t know, and likely won’t until MWC when Samsung is expected to roll the phone out, but it’s looking good, Samsung fans.

HTC Hima details leaked: replacing the One

HTC Hima details leaked: replacing the One

The HTC Hima's details have been leaked this morning by a notoriously accurate leakster by the name of "Upleaks", and the device is said to be coming by March of 2015 - and likely introduced either immediately before or during Mobile World Congress 2015. If past events are any indication, we might well see this device introduced in the first couple of months in 2015 then shown off at MWC 2015 while HTC Desire devices are revealed anew. Also, the word "Hima" is a code-name, not a final name.

Galaxy S6 details in the wings as A7 appears for certification

Galaxy S6 details in the wings as A7 appears for certification

Tenna strikes again, releasing information about the Galaxy A7 before Samsung can officially announce the device on its own. This is Samsung's thinnest smartphone - the thinnest phone they've ever made, that is to say - and it may be pushing clues as to what the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have in store. Metal, for starters - metal-rimmed, not unlike the Galaxy Note 4 - and a body that's 6.3mm thin. Are these the sort of features that'd bring you back into the Samsung fold for 2015?

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

It may be time for HTC to get rid of the UltraPixel name - and the technology - if today's anonymous sources are to be believed. The rest of the specifications shared this afternoon aren't all that difficult to believe. Just boosts in resolution, screen size, and processor power. The big difference here is in the change in camera - which anyone could have predicted, really. We're crossing our fingers that HTC has something more exiting planned than what basically amounts to a generational kick in the pants.

Galaxy S6 might be released earlier than expected

Galaxy S6 might be released earlier than expected

Samsung releases a lot of devices — that much is certain. Each year, it seems they push out dozens of smartphones, and we’re not even going to try and discern how many tablets there are from Samsung right now. Even with so many (often decent if not really good) devices from Samsung, their flagships still loom large. The Galaxy S5 is nearing it’s life cycle as a flagship device, which has given way to rampant Galaxy S6 speculation and rumors. This time, we’re talking release date.

Nokia X to help developers cash in around the world

Nokia X to help developers cash in around the world

As Nokia X is introduced to the world, Nokia suggests that they’re opening up a new door, aiming for a segment in the affordable international smartphone market that they’d not had access to before. For users, this will mean access to full-powered apps on a device that’s only a little more expensive than a feature phone. For developers, Nokia is suggesting that their reach - international reach, that is - should be reason enough to port Android apps over to their Nokia Store.

Should I Wait for the iPhone 6?

Should I Wait for the iPhone 6?

I've been a longtime iPhone owner. I bought the first-generation iPhone, followed by the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5. I entered this year with a cracked screen on my iPhone 5, fully expecting to take the plunge again this year and pick up an iPhone 6.

The rumors surrounding the iPhone 6 are nothing short of lustworthy for an old-time iPhone owner like me. The device will come with a higher-end processor, the rumor mill says, and could very well have a much larger screen.

There are quite a few top-level apps ready for Nokia X as it heads to launch just one week after it was introduced to the world at Mobile World Congress 2014.
