What would you say if I told you Samsung has retired the Home button in favor of onscreen buttons in the Galaxy S IV? Of course you’d give out a big HOORAH! Now, what if I told you Samsung also decided to scrap the sleek rounded design in favor of a more square Galaxy Note look? Yea, I say “meh” too.
We’ve been here before: purported rumors for the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S IV. Last we heard, Samsung was going to be holding an event at an unknown location on March 15, and now, we’re hearing it will be March 14 somewhere in NYC.
The land down under has just provided enough rumor fodder to keep us bloggers going for the next few months. According to Australian technology site Smarthouse, the elusive Motorola X will not only be a device that features “software never seen before in a smartphone,” but is also scheduled to be unveiled during Google I/O in May.
According to the Korean press DDaily, Samsung will be sticking with the same three button layout design as the Samsung Galaxy S III. You can’t really blame Samsung considering all the Galaxy S III devices they’ve sold since launch (which is a lot!).
Today is certainly Nexus 4 day, and there’s only one way to end such a day — with a white Nexus 4! Popular devices are known for having a white counterpart and apparently the Nexus 4 is no different. The guys over at phoneArena received photo evidence of such a device existing, and while it was void of any information such as availability, cost, etc., it does leave us to drool a bit.
Vanilla Android, top notch features, and an affordable price made the Nexus 7 one of the most successful Android tablets of all time. As we look to the future, it would only make sense for Google to embrace this winning combination and implement it in future models. Well, according to DigiTimes, that’s exactly what Google has planned for the Nexus 7 successor.
I usually don’t post on purported renders of devices yet announced and thus didn’t post up the early renders of the HTC M7. However, I’d like to point out, I was disappointed by the renders as they painted a picture of an HTC device that looked a whole lot like an iPhone 5. Thankfully, the latest batch of purported M7 images look more like an HTC device and less like, well… a you know what.
