When we first heard about digital tattoos, the thought of forever bonding one’s self with technology that could very well be outdated by the time the art was done seemed… less than appealing. As it turned out, Motorola’s first chatter on the next level in the wearables game wasn’t quite so permanent. This week we’re having a peek at the digital tattoo as created by VivaLnk for Motorola’s Moto X.
This morning the device code-named Samsung Galaxy Alpha has appeared at the FCC, making its reveal and appearance all the more likely for next month. It appears quite likely that this smartphone will be revealed for the first time September 3rd.

HTC has opened up Duo Shot photos from its One M8 flagship Android smartphone for social editing, with an update to the Gallery app on the phone allowing viewers to adjust the focal point among other tweaks.

Blu, maker of unlocked smartphones, has introduced a new product lineup: the Studios C Series. Ushering in this product line are four new smartphones, the Studio 5.0 C HD and Studio C mini, as well as the Studio 5.0 C and the Studio 5.0 CE. All four handsets are GSM-compatible.
LG "accidentally" leaked the existence of, or at least plans for, a stylus-wielding G3 Stylus. Naturally, everyone immediately started to note, no pun intended, its supposed rivalry with Samsung's Galaxy Note family. If you have been keeping your hopes up that this would be the case, you might unfortunately find the latest leaks discouraging, portraying a smartphone that won't really be able to stand up to Samsung's equivalent.
A team of creators have created a wireless charger that aims to make things simple. The PowerSquare allows you to charge multiple devices across its relatively large face while also requiring no specific placement of said devices on its pad. This means you no longer need to center your device and wait - it just works.
Motorola's next budget smartphone might be an incremental but bigger update to the Moto G. That is, at least, according to these specs unearthed from graphics benchmark site GFXBench. The details for a certain Motorola XT1063, believed to be the Moto G2 (or Moto G+1, if you prefer) show very little significant change from the company's current wallet-friendly smartphone.
The so-called patent war between Apple and Samsung has been downgraded to a mere battle, with both companies calling a truce that will put an end to all of its foreign patent lawsuits. The announcement was made in a joint statement yesterday, and lawsuits being held in eight countries will be dropped as a result.
Lenovo's Vibe Z2 Pro smartphone that we saw leak back in May has become official, with the company introducing its high-end offering and all that comes with it.
