Next-gen Moto G box shots spoil almost everything

Moto G 3rd-generation out of the box

The third-generation Moto G has been one of Motorola's poorest-kept secrets in recent memory, and things certainly aren't getting any better this weekend. A Brazilian retailer has inadvertently posted (and promptly pulled) unboxing photos that confirm nearly everything you'd care to know about Moto's latest budget smartphone. The pics show that the new G will pack a 1.4GHz quad-core processor (up from the current model's 1.2GHz chip), a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter and colorful shells. It's also safe to say that at least some models will tout 5-inch 720p screens, 16GB of storage, dual SIM slots and (in Brazil's case) digital TV tuning.

It’s rumoured that both these devices will be announced on 13th August, as for pricing, we have no idea but I bet they won’t be cheap…

Head to Mobile Fun for more information and additional pictures, but you can probably guess that the Galaxy edge Plus / edge + will probably be a phablet version of the current model.

  • Our first look at the OnePlus 2 comes from China’s regulator

    So far, OnePlus has done a fairly good job of keeping its next smartphone under wraps ahead of the July 27th launch. However, a clear shot of the OnePlus 2 has been revealed by one of the biggest 'leakers' out there -- Chinese wireless regulator Tenaa. We already knew that the 2 would have a (supposedly fast) fingerprint reader, and that's clearly shown in the image. Its camera setup looks an awful lot like the LG G4's, meaning it may have laser focusing and not dual cameras, as had been rumored. Unusually, it's mounted very low on the back.

    Here’s your clearest look yet at the next Moto G

    Motorola's 2015 Moto G

    If there was any doubt left that Motorola will unveil a new Moto G at its July 28th event, Swiss retailer Digitec just removed it. The store has posted listings for a "3rd gen" Moto G that offers the clearest look yet at what this budget smartphone will likely deliver. Besides a fresher design, it could be far more potent than its predecessor -- Digitec claims that the new G touts a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, LTE and a 1.7GHz quad-core chip (likely the 64-bit Snapdragon 610). If it weren't for the 8GB of expandable storage, this could easily pass for a mid-range phone. You probably won't have to pay mid-range prices, though, since the G tentatively costs $245 off-contract in Switzerland. We'd still take the listings with a grain of salt, since retailers occasionally botch specs. If they're accurate, though, they suggest that you're in for a treat if you want an affordable, near-stock Android phone this summer.

    Samsung’s next Galaxy Tab S should be a whole lot wider

    Samsung's leaked Galaxy Tab S2

    Don't look now, but Samsung's widescreen Android tablets might be going the way of the Dodo. Tabletmonkeys claims to have leaked images of the Galaxy Tab S2, and the high-end slate appears to be adopting the same wide, iPad-like aspect ratio as the Galaxy Tab A. In fact, it might lose size and resolution compared to the original Tab S lineup -- instead of 8.4- and 10.5-inch 2,560 x 1,600 displays, you'd be looking at 8- and 9.7-inch 2,048 x 1,536 panels. That wouldn't be so hot for your widescreen videos, but it'd be better for web browsing and anything else that benefits from portrait mode viewing.

    Claimed photos of iPhone 6s rear housing picture small internal changes, ‘stronger body’ and more

    iPhone 6s rear housing Future Supplier 001

    A batch of photos of a purported ‘iPhone 6s’ rear housing in gold, obtained by Future Supplier and reposted today by French blog, serve as our best indication yet that Apple’s upcoming smartphone refresh will re-use the exterior design of the current-generation (shocker!).

    More important than that, however, the photos suggest the upcoming handsets will introduce minuscule changes to the internal layout, with a source claiming a “stronger” Unibody construction and a change to the material’s feel.... Read the rest of this post here

    iPhone 6s is 0.2mm thicker than iPhone 6, leaked industrial design diagram indicates

    iPhone 6s schematic Engadget Japan 001

    Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6s should measure 7.1mm deep, a 0.2 millimeter increase versus the current-generation iPhone 6, which measures 6.9mm deep. If true, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s will have the exact same thickness as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, according to a purported schematic leaked Monday to Engadget Japan by a reliable source in the Chinese supply chain.

    KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously said that an imperceptible increase in thickness was necessary to accommodate Apple’s implementation of force sensing on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus’s screen.... Read the rest of this post here

    Third-gen Moto G leak shows a new camera, not much else

    The Moto G is quite the attractive handset for someone looking for a capable phone that's also very budget friendly. In fact, our own Chris Velazco calls it the best budget smartphone available. Thanks to a video and a few snapshots, there's a look at the supposed third-gen model and a list of its specs. While 2014's Moto G was a rather modest improvement over the OG device, the details served up in this leak show more of the same for the 2015 installment. The device shown here is said to keep the 5-inch 720p display, 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage. However, it does pack a Snapdragon 401 processor with 13-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. That's a 5-megapixel boost for the primary camera and a 3-megapixel increase for the one you'll be using for selfies.

    Apple requested 4K video content from Sony Pictures in 2013

    Apple TV (teaser 001)

    Apple requested 4K video content from Sony Pictures back in 2013, according to recently leaked documents. WikiLeaks on Thursday dumped another 200,000+ documents stemming from last year’s staggering Sony hack, and so far at least one Apple-related story has been uncovered.

    AppleInsider points to a materials access letter from Culver Digital Distribution, an entity associated with Sony Pictures, that serves as a formal agreement for “testing and/or preparing” 4K film and television content for non-exclusive distribution. And it has Eddy Cue’s signature on it.... Read the rest of this post here

    Samsung Galaxy S6 Active breaks cover with an expectedly rugged look

    If you're looking for a phone with great specs that can be tossed around and survive a swim, Samsung's Galaxy S6 Active appears to be on the way. Both GSM Arena and trusted leaker @evleaks offered a glimpse of the forthcoming handset today, one that features an outer shell similar to last year's version. Like previous Active models, a trio of hardware buttons reside on the front, so don't expect the same fingerprint scanner found on both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. They do have to be waterproof, after all. Other than a look at both sides, details remain scarce besides save for word that the S6 Active packs a 3,500 mAh battery. If history is any indication, you can expect similar specs to the flagship while being both shock resistant and dustproof, as this handset will be built to withstand a bit more stress.
