BlackBerry ready to drop smartphones if things don’t improve

BlackBerry ready to drop smartphones if things don’t improve

Is BlackBerry ready to concede defeat, something that pundits have been waiting for it to do for years now? In a way, yes, but it isn't a blanket statement. CEO John Chen did admit that it was willing stop making smartphones if things don't change for the better, referring to the company's sliding revenues. However, there are still other options available to it that doesn't require completely scrapping their hardware business, though Chen also admits that it would be only under the most ideal cases.

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

It's about time that Motorola's flagship get its fair share of leaks, though it might barely matter with just a few hours left before the real deal hits. That is, unless Motorola's 28th July event is meant only for the new Moto G. In any case, the Moto X that is being revealed in this latest leak may or may not be worth all the excitement. Sure there are marked improvements over last year's model, but depending on what you're looking for in a 2015 flagship, you might be a bit disappointed.

OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

Seldom are the life-lessons so clear when you launch a follow-up product, like the new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Born of a desire to cater to the whims of the Android enthusiast, the requests were simple: they wanted power, they wanted affordability, and they wanted it right now. The original OnePlus One succeeded on the first two of those counts but notoriously botched the third. Now, still bearing a near-astonishing SIM-free, unlocked price tag - starting at $329 - but brought up to speed with 2015's finest, the OnePlus 2 is aiming for the hat trick. I caught up with OnePlus to see what's new.

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.

Moto G 2015: latest leak details packaging and specs

It is anticipated Motorola will be officially introducing the third-generation model of its Moto G smartphone tomorrow, but the odds are high we won't be surprised by what we hear. The handset has been the source of numerous leaks, the rate of which we've seen increase rapidly over the past couple weeks (and it's not the only Motorola product to surface early). The handset has shown up on retailers websites, in a video, in clear and blurry photos alike -- and now it has been detailed in what may be the first unboxing.

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.

Samsung is facing declining sales with its Galaxy S6 devices having been on the market for a while now. To push new sales it needs a new smartphone and some new images have leaked showing that the company is set to launch a smaller version of the Galaxy S6 dubbed the Galaxy S6 Mini.

Galaxy Note 5 prototype sighted, no S Pen auto eject

Galaxy Note 5 prototype sighted, no S Pen auto eject

Samsung's upcoming S Pen powered phablet has almost all but been leaked out, but there is one aspect of it that still boggles the mind: the S Pen itself. After all, what is a Galaxy Note without the stylus? While that part is, of course, already expected and even leaked, nobody seems to agree on how the stylus can be removed from the smartphone's body. An earlier patent seems to indicate the use of an auto ejection mechanism, but this latest leaked prototype begs to disagree.

Moto G 2015 poses for the camera ahead of official date

These days almost nothing is sacred anymore in the land of smartphones. Even Apple, long considered to hold a tight lid over its products, have become more and more subjected to leaks. What more less powerful companies? Motorola has scheduled a media event on Tuesday, presumably to unveil its 3rd gen Moto G, but someone managed to get their hands on one already and is all too happy to spread the word. Not that there's much to spread anyway when it comes to the Moto G.
