This morning rumors and leaks are all the hype. We have found some official press renders of the LG G3. HTC and Samsung are also hitting the news with the rumored One Mini 2 and the Galaxy Tab S line of tablets.
We have seen a multitude of blurry photos and have had enough of that. Want to take a better look at LG’s upcoming super phone? We now have some images of the LG G3, in all its high-resolution splendor.
There is a small “but”, though. These images are meant to display third-party accessories (cases and a screen protector). This means you won’t get to see the device naked, but you can get a very good idea of how it looks under all that plastic.
Opinion: These images go parallel with what we have seen before. There’s a very similar design to the LG G2, with a super thin bezel and re-designed rear buttons. It may not be made of aluminum, but LG tends to do a great job with build quality.
Here’s another high-resolution leak. This happens to be the second good HTC One Mini 2 image we get, but now we are seeing the colors in which the device will be available.
The One M8 and its smaller brother will come in the same colors: silver, gray and gold. The device looks very similar to the M8, but with a smaller body and no secondary camera in the back.
We do expect some sacrifices, but it should be a good device for those who don’t like the larger displays. It really all comes down to the price, which should also be lower than the M8’s.
Opinion: The HTC One Mini 2 does look very nice, but we have to learn more about it before we can make any judgements. There are very good affordable smartphones out there – can this one compete?
Samsung is rumored to be launching a new line of tablets. This time labeled as Galaxy Tab S, the new pads will come in 8.4 and 10.5-inch versions, sporting all the awesome specs you can expect from a powerful Samsung tablet.
The line’s biggest feature is that at least one of the devices will be the first tablet in the world to feature a 2560×1600p AMOLED display. It will also have a fingerprint reader, an Octa-core Exynos 5 (5420), 3 GB of RAM, 8MP/2.1MP cameras and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
There will be 2 versions of each – one with LTE connectivity and the other featuring WiFi only.
Opinion: We don’t expect these to come very cheap. Samsung is not known for keeping its tablet prices too low, especially with such specs on board.
