Galaxy S6 Active: first leaked image

Those who are fans of waterproof smartphones were probably sorely disappointed with the release of Samsung's new flagships, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. While last year's Galaxy S5 was safe from water hazards, the S6 models shed that feature. This is probably why Samsung will be introducing a new model for its Active line, soon to be dubbed the Galaxy S6 Active. The first images of the device have been leaked, giving us an early look at the front and back of weather-resistant smartphone.

Your iPhone 6s may be Rose Gold, cost $10k

Analysts predict that the next iPhone will include a Rose Gold option as well as a higher-priced luxury option similar to Apple Watch Edition. This week's suggestion includes a version of the Apple iPhone 6s - following Apple's traditional every-other-year change from a full edition change to an "s" version. This iPhone 6s would include Rose Gold - though we're not entirely sure at this time whether or not this gold would be an actual gold mix, like the Apple Watch Edition, or if it'll be similar to the Gold option on the iPhone 6 now, without any actual super-expensive gold inside.

IDC on China: Apple topples Xiaomi, market slowing down

Market research firm IDC has just released smartphone numbers for the first quarter of the year, focusing particularly in the Chinese market. The figures reveal two very interesting "first time" facts. For the first time, Apple has unseated Xiaomi, believed to be the forever king of the Chinese smartphone market. And also for the first time, that market is starting to show signs of contracting, if not decelerating, due to the saturation of the market. If it becomes a trend, it could very well change the way foreign brands look at the Chinese market.

Praise be: The LG G4 has Quick Charge 2.0 after all

LG has confirmed that the G4 smartphone does, in fact, support Qualcomm's rapid charging system for speedier top-ups, despite initially claiming the feature was absent. Quick Charge 2.0 is one of the more appreciated abilities of recent Snapdragon chipsets, capable of potentially taking a device from dead to more than halfway charged in under thirty minutes, so we were understandably confused when LG initially told us it would be missing from the flagship G4.

OnePlus #DoesSettle: truce with Micromax, CM updates

Contrary to its slogan, it seems that startup OnePlus does know how to settle. Legally, that is. Much to the relief of fans and device owners in India, OnePlus and Micromax have mutually decided to withdraw their lawsuits in the country, paving the way for a more peaceful coexistence. At least as far as OnePlus' remaining OnePlus One stocks are concerned. Plus, smartphone owners are once again promised to get their CyanogenMod OTA update from Cyanogen, if they decide not to move over to OnePlus' own OxygenOS.

It is also sharing some of the details that give a hint into the R7 as well. OPPO says it's a move that shows its confidence in its products.

Smaller, cheaper LG G4 leaked as G4c

Don’t expect Nintendo’s mobile games at E3 this year

Nintendo may expect to have its first mobile game on the market before the year is through, but don't plan on seeing any hint of it at E3 2015. While the company is targeting five titles by March 2017, according to Nintendo President Satoru Iwata the annual gaming convention isn't the right place to discuss them. That, he said today in a Q&A session, is because E3 is about a very different type of play.
