Leak gives a clearer look at Motorola’s upcoming Droid Turbo

Motorola Droid Turbo

So far, the pictures we've seen of Motorola's soon-to-launch Droid Turbo have been... incomplete. You won't have to wonder exactly what this Verizon-only smartphone looks like any longer, though. Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted a press image (available through Verizon's web code) which provides a good look at the phone, including its frequently elusive front. In short, this is a hybrid between last year's Kevlar-laden Droid Maxx and the styling cues of 2014 Motorola flagships like the new Moto X and Nexus 6. The biggest upgrades over the Maxx are likely to be in the guts, such as the 21-megapixel camera, the rumored Quad HD screen and a speedy Snapdragon 805 chip. Whether or not the Turbo is as tough as it looks, you'll know the full story when the phone launches in nine days.

Apple leaks iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 ahead of official announce

Well, this is a bit unlike Apple -- the company appears to have accidentally spilled the beans about the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, which are expected to be announced tomorrow. Representations of both devices showed up in a screenshot of the iPad User Guide for iOS 8.1, which we're also expecting new details about tomorrow. We can't tell much from the image, but it does confirm that Cupertino's tablets will be getting Touch ID. A later screenshot also details burst shooting mode, which will be coming to the iPad Air 2, but not the mini 3, according to the document. However, downloading the book didn't reveal any additional info. In fact, there's no trace of the content leaked via the preview screenshots at all.

While the leak may seem like a careless mistake, the more cynical out there will note that this happened just moments after Google announced its latest Nexus devices. It might be a coincidence, or the notoriously media savvy company might be trying to push the competition out of the news cycle as fast as possible.

Lenovo Sisley could be the sexiest Android phone ever

Lenovo SisleyLenovo is looking to launch an all-metal phone in the near future, GSMarena is reporting. The company’s leaked Sisley smartphone looks very much like the new iPhone 6 but it’s even better, I would say. Similarly to Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha, this is not a high-end device. Rather, it sports a 5-inch 720p HD screen, 1.2GHz…

Clearer circuit board photo reiterates iPad Air 2 may have faster A8X chip with 2GB of RAM

A8X (Apple.club.tw 001)

Following a blurry shot posted by Taiwanese blog Apple.club.tw this weekend that purportedly depicts a claimed iPad Air 2 logic board with a chip labeled ‘A8X’, the same source Monday republished a much clearer image. It should be music to the ears of everyone hoping Apple will bump the forthcoming iPad Air 2 to two gigabytes of RAM. The RAM module appears to be built by Elpida, one of Apple’s memory suppliers, as determined by the markings on the chip.

Doubling the amount of RAM would admittedly allow the tablet to keep more applications active and result in smoother multitasking, faster graphics and performance improvements across the board.... Read the rest of this post here

Apple-Pay-credit-card-transaction

As Apple readies the launch of Apple Pay for later this month, it has initiated a mandatory, one hour training program for its retail employees and is coordinating with third-party retailers to ensure that stores will be able to complete transactions via Apple Pay starting on launch day.

Per a recent leak, screenshots indicate that Apple Pay establishment will be an option when setting up the rest of the device, and credit card details can be entered manually or scanned in with the device’s camera. A new report by 9to5mac suggests that settings can be adjusted and additional credit cards can be added through an upcoming “Passbook & Apple Pay” tab in iOS’s Settings app....

air 2 logic

Photos of several components allegedly belonging to the upcoming iPad Air 2 popped up online today. Republished by Apple.club.tw, the images show a Home button flex cable, a front panel, a volume button flex cable, and a logic board.

And on that logic board, it appears that there is an A8X chip. You can’t see it at first, but a MacRumors forum user zoomed in on the photo and tweaked the colors, and as you can see in the image below, it looks like there are 3 characters.... Read the rest of this post here

Motorola Droid Turbo (and its 21MP camera) detailed in leaked manual

We caught a brief glimpse of the Droid Turbo late last month, but really: that handful of leaked images didn't do much to whet our whistles. This time though, something a little more substantive has started making the rounds -- the folks over at MotoFirmware obtained the phone's full Verizon user guide (PDF warning) and have posted it for all to enjoy. The 73-page document confirms among other things that the Droid Turbo packs a 5.2-inch display (though we can't tell if it's a Quad HD beast like some rumors have suggested), a 21-megapixel rear camera that shoots 4K video, and the same sort of context-sensitive tricks that the Moto X can pull off. Oh, and that little tease we saw on the official Droid Landing Twitter account? Its not-so-cryptic hints about faster charging have been confirmed too, as the Turbo will come with (what else?) Motorola's forthcoming Turbo Charger in the box. Not a bad deal, consider everyone else will have to shell out $35 for one.
