We may be taking a look at the upcoming Moto E (2nd generation), the Galaxy S6 won’t have a Snapdragon 810 processor and the Egg Kickstarter campaign makes a return.
The guys over at Android Police have stumbled across a leaked image of a device that could very well be the next Moto E. We call it that because we are not exactly sure what else it could be. It’s definitely a lower end smartphone, as it lacks the premium design the Moto X touts.
We are also willing to assume it’s not a Moto G, as it lacks the second front-facing speaker grill, has no flash and seems to be a bit smaller. Unless Motorola is trying to introduce yet another letter to its smartphone alphabet here, we are willing to bet its a Moto E.
You can’t catch much else from the images. We can say the software we ar elooking at is Android 5.0 Lollipop, though. It also seems like a front-facing camera has been added, as well as a rear noise-cancelling microphone.
Opinion: This little phone sure looks like a neat affordable phone if Motorola can offer it for a good price. I suppose we will see in the months to come!
Qualcomm has announced its first-quarter fiscal 2015 results. Qualcomm has a lot of cash, the numbers don’t impress us. What does seem interesting is a little something they said in their report.
The company states they have lowered their revenue expectations for the second half of the year because the Snapdragon 810 processor “will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer’s flagship device”. We have no reason to believe HTC is going anywhere else, LG is going in with full force and there simply are no other manufacturers big enough to make Qualcomm change its numbers.
Opinion: Qualcomm is likely talking about Samsung and the Galaxy S6, which is a pretty bad partnership to lose. Let’s hope my fellow San Diegans at Qualcomm can still have an awesome year, though!
Remember when we told you about the Egg? It’s a pretty cool little device that works as your very own portable server. You can learn all about it in our Egg coverage. The original Kickstarter campaign was canceled, but Eggcyte is now back and stronger than ever!
This time around they have a goal of $100,000. The campaign has just started and the Egg already has over $18,000 in pledges, with 130 backers and counting. The Kickstarter campaign has 41 days to go, so take a look at it and sign up if you are interested.
Opinion: I happen to like the Egg because it would open many doors for those of us who happen to like photography and don’t want to use other services. I actually think I may be pledging.
