Flabby Bird is coming back! It won’t be the same, though. Meanwhile, we have two devices being leaked from Samsung and LG. These are very interesting ones, you have to check them out.
March was a doomed month for casual gamers all over the world. The overnight hit Flappy Bird got taken down from every app store after developer Dong Nguyen was overwhelmed with the destruction of his “simple life”.
The popular game was to be taken down permanently until further notice, though Nguyen did say he was considering changing it and re-releasing it. Well, guys – it seems that day may be coming in August!
CNBC’s Kelly Evans is now reporting that Nguyen is ready to bring back Flappy Bird. It will be a bit different, though. The new game will have multi-player features. We don’t know how it will work, exactly, but this is probably Dong’s way to make Flappy Bird less addictive.
Opinion: I still have Flappy Bird installed in my Android device, so it’s obvious I’m excited about Flappy Bird’s return. Many believe Flappy Bird would be spoiled if changed, though. I hope Nguyen is doing this in a smart way.

LG has not been very active in the Windows Phone game, but they are planning to make up for the time gone. @evleaks has just outed the LG Uni8. This leaked device comes with no rumored specs, but it sure looks it was not built cheaply. The device does sport Windows 8.1 and is said to be released sometime in 2014.
Opinion: I have been itching to try a Windows Phone and would love to see what LG can bring to the table. I can’t wait to hear more about the LG Uni8!
Samsung can keep repeating itself all it wants, saying no premium Galaxy S5 version is coming. Evidence talks, and a lot of it keeps showing up. A Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime has appeared at a Korean carrier’s website. Olleh TV’s variant (SM-G906K) is said to be a Samsung Galaxy S5 with a QHD (2560x1440p) display.
The image does show the device with a back cover, though. We don’t know if this could be a placeholder, or the carrier simply messed up and this is all a mirage. We will see in due time.
Opinion: Many of you already know how I feel about QHD displays in a smartphone. They are simply wasteful and unnecessary, but we have to wait and see what other benefits this rumored device can bring us.
