Samsung is already rumored to be launching a 6-inch Mega 2, but if a leaked brochure from SK Telecom is any indication, there is a 7-inch variant being readied. Dubbed the Galaxy W, the device sports a 7-inch screen with a 720p display. Even the model number for the device (SM-T2558) follows the naming convention that Samsung reserves for its tablets.
The critical response to the Galaxy S5's fingerprint-scanning features may have been muted, but Samsung seems undeterred in its efforts to spread biometric security capabilities across its mobile device lineup. According to The Wall Street Journal, Samsung SVP Rhee In-jong told investors and analysts in Hong Kong that the company will expand its use of biometric sensors, making them available...
Different folks have a different perpective on the Nokia X but if a new report is to be believed, Microsoft will be fixing at least one common complaint in the next generation device. According to BGR India, the Nokia X successor is currently in development and will be getting a dedicated home button like regular Android devices.
Motorola might be trying to retire the humble flip phone, but Samsung seems more inclined to evolve the venerable form factor rather than killing it off. The Korean manufacturer has unveiled a new Android-powered flip phone — not the first such device by any means — under the name "G9098."
The T-Mobile version of the HTC One M8 has received an update to enable Extreme Power Saving Mode. The feature, which was announced at launch, had to be approved by carriers before it could be pushed out to the devices, and that's just what happened today with T-Mobile's One M8.
What you see above is claimed to be the first real photo of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. This high-powered variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is said to contain a 5.2-inch 2560x1440 QHD display (much like the LG G3) and a metal body. While previous reports of the metal body had assumed that the whole phone would be metal, what we're seeing here appears more along the lines of an aluminum frame...

We were wondering what would be different about the rumored HTC One Remix for Verizon than the HTC One Mini 2 it's reportedly based on. We can now tell you at least one thing: color. Notorious leaker @evleaks just outed what is said to be the first image of the One Remix (you can check it out after the break), and though it's in a case and has had the background poorly photoshopped out, what we...
An unannounced Samsung smartphone — the SM-G900FG — made its way through the Bluetooth SIG's certification process recently, and this might very well be a Google Play edition of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The current TouchWiz-ed Galaxy S5 is the SM-G900F, and last year's Galaxy S4 Google Play edition was the GT-I9505G (the standard Galaxy S4 being the GT-I9505), so it stands to reason that a Galaxy...
The unlocked and developer editions of the HTC One M7 are getting an update to install Sense 6 today. The update comes after Canadian One M7 owners received an update to do the same earlier this week. The update weighs in at 668MB and brings a lot of what we've come to love about Sense 6 on the HTC One M8 to the year-old original One.

Samsung's Galaxy Mega was a quirky phone-tablet hybrid that arrived on AT&T last summer, and now it appears there may be a follow-up in the works, as multiple reports suggest a 6-inch Mega 2 is in development.
It's not as big and not as powerful as its namesake, but the HTC One Mini 2 appears to be a very capable smartphone
You can't pick up the new HTC One Mini 2 and not think it.
This is what it's supposed to feel like.
HTC today announced its latest mid-ranger, a dead ringer for its big brother that's destined for Europe, the Middle East and Asia in the coming weeks. We've had a bit of time...
