Apple is no longer the master of keeping devices secret as two new rumors spawn. Those who want something sooner can also go for a special edition Galaxy S5.
Anonymous tipsters are at it again, this time giving us a nice Apple rumor to contemplate. The latest rumor says the new iPhones are to be announced come September 9th. This goes right in line with previous releases, which do fall in early-to-mid September.
We are expecting two larger devices, one measuring in at 4.7 inches while the other breaks boundaries with a large 5.5-inch screen.
Opinion: Remember to take this one with a grain of salt. Nothing is official until it is. I sure am glad to see bigger iPhones coming to market, though. I wonder how the new phones will take advantage of the screen real estate.
Two Apple leaks in a row? Must be a special day. This time we are taking a look at a leaked image of what is said to be the shell of an iPad Air 2 (or whatever it will be called). If the shell is real, the new iPad will sport a very similar design with minor alterations.
Among the most notable changes is the lack of the mute/orientation switch. It seems the microphone hole may also be changed to the back of the device, while the speaker grill has turned into a single, larger one.
Opinion: We can expect this one to come during October or November, but we have yet to see what is going on. As per usual, take it all with a grain of salt.
Those who love blue can circle August 17 in their calendars. Best Buy is getting ready to release one of their unique and exclusive blue devices. This time it’s the Samsung Galaxy S5’s turn to get colorful with the Electric Blue version.
The phone will launch on the above mentioned date for the price of just $99, a $100 discount over the regular iterations. After a 2-year contract, that is. Customers get a $100 gift card if they opt for AT&T Next, Verizon Edge or Sprint Easy Pay. This promotion will stay live until August 23, so be quick!
Opinion: Seeing the front of the device covered in blue is quite unique. The device will definitely stand out in a crowd.
