New leaked Galaxy S7 image may be our first glimpse of an actual device

Update: Another image has popped up, this time of the front.

Samsug is preparing to show off its newest generation of smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain later this month, but now it appears we might have our first picture of what might be the Galaxy S7 in the flesh (via ReviewDao.vn). We’ve seen several leaked renders (most notably some very official-looking ones that popped up last week via Evan Blass), and today’s image seems to line up perfectly with what the phone is likely going to look like…

Leaked ‘Moto G4 Plus’ sketch seemingly confirms redesigned front w/ fingerprint sensor

Last week, the first image of what is likely one of Lenovo’s next Moto devices revealed a front fingerprint sensor in place of dual speakers. Now, an image from Evleaks that shows a sketch of a ‘Moto G4 Plus’ with a similar sensor arrangement likely confirms that the image is legit…

4th-gen Moto X revealed in leaked renders w/ large camera bulge and Verizon Droid model

While the 4th-gen Moto G has been well leaked ahead of a May 17th event, the flagship Moto X has remained more elusive. A sketchy leak from last year has now been collaborated by Evleaks and several official-looking press renders have surfaced from the reliable HelloMotoHK.

Gigantic 18.4-inch Samsung Galaxy View tablet preemptively leaked, pre-order for $600

After being leaked and rumored about for months, the huge Samsung Galaxy View tablet is finally available to pre-order. Adorama is taking pre-orders now, but hasn’t stated when customers should expect to receive their orders, but does state that any pre-orders placed will be shipped to customers on a first-come first-serve basis, and credit cards won’t be charged until the unit ships.

For 9, you’ll get an Android-based tablet boasting an enormous 18.4-inch full HD 1080p display. The Galaxy View runs Android Lollipop and is powered by the Exynos 7580 octa-core 1.6GHz processor. There’s 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to an extra 128GB via MicroSD card. Other specs include a 5,700mAh battery, stereo speakers, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 2.1MP front facing camera.

Judging the device based on the promotional images being used to sell the Galaxy View, it’s clear Samsung sees this more as a secondary, portable smart TV screen you can move around your house:



Although specifications don’t exactly scream ‘flagship’, given that its primary use will be to watch Netflix, or any other video streaming service, it should easily be powerful enough to handle it. What’s more, 1080p resolution at a few feet away will still look pretty sharp.

Samsung isn’t the only company to see the need for big tablets this year. Ignoring the comparatively tiny iPad Pro, Alcatel OneTouch teased a 17-inch tablet dubbed the Xess, which it’s expected to reveal in more detail at CES next year.

Leaked ‘Moto Z Play’ image shows a thicker device with a headphone jack

Motorola launched two distinct Moto X variants last year: the flagship Moto X Style (later known simply as “Pure Edition” in the US) and the Moto X Play, which shipped with lesser processor and RAM specs. Later, Verizon and Motorola teamed up to launch another variant at the flagship level: the shatterproof Droid Turbo 2.

With the initial launch of the Moto Z, Lenovo effectively introduced what are the next-gen equivalent of the Moto X Style (the standard Moto Z), and the Droid Turbo 2 (the Moto Z Force). That leaves us with one gap, a replacement for the Moto X Play, and a new image suggests that such a phone is launching soon — and with a headphone jack.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active: Leaked images show replacement of customizable Active key w/ Bixby button

Android Marshmallow for Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5 rolling out from next month according to sketchy leaked schedule

Samsung is historically a little behind its Android-making competitors when it comes to rolling out major software updates for its smartphones. So it’s no surprise to see that Marshmallow hasn’t yet officially landed on any Galaxy series devices. If a leaked roadmap is anything to go by, that could be about to change…
