More rumors show up as IFA keeps nearing. Meanwhile, Cricket Wireless is in no mood to let T-Mobile have all the glory.
Motorola is all over the rumor mill lately. And of course, with such an awesome list of devices in the horizon, people just can’t wait to see what is to come during the September 4th event. Today we are taking a look at a very neat leak from Livraria Logos, a Brazilian retailer.
While images are missing, the online store has posted listings for multiple Moto X+1 versions, all featuring different designs and materials. These versions include the black (preto), bamboo (bambu) and leather (couru) iterations of the Moto X successor.
Listed specs go right in hand with previous rumors, including a 5.2-inch HD display, Android 4.4.4, a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a 13 MP camera.
Opinion: We can expect more details, images and specs to show up as we get closer to Motorola’s announcement. For now, let’s take it all with a grain of salt and stay calm (or try to).
Rumors say Samsung is getting ready to announce yet another smartphone, this time naming it the Samsung Gear 3. Pocketnow’s sources claim this device will feature a unique display, as it will sport a curved display that is more rectangular than square.
It’s also said the wearable will have no camera this time around, as well as keeping the Tizen OS.
Opinion: The same sources claim a release date is to come some time in September, so IFA would make the most sense for an announcement. I am more interested in Android Wear at this point, but let’s stay tuned until all the details emerge.
T-Mobile is taking all the glory lately, stealing customers from every carrier out there. In fact T-Mobile and Metro PCS (owned by T-Mobile) make the biggest prepaid network around, something Cricket just couldn’t ignore.
Cricket Wireless is offering $100 to any T-Mobile or Metro PCs convert. New customers must port their number to get the $100 credit, and the offer stands until October 19.
Opinion: I love what T-Mobile and MetroPCS are doing lately. Frankly, I don’t know if $100 would convince me to switch, but you may have your reasons!
