Rumors say the Nexus 6 should be launching any day, Droid Turbo will have a massive battery and Amazon is opening a physical store. What a day!
Rumors of the Nexus 6 (Motorola Shamu) have been spreading all over the internet. Does this mean the device is close to its launch date? If Wall Street Journal’s sources are to be believed, the 5.9-inch smartphone is to launch this very month.
This information comes from “three people familiar with the situation”, so there may be a bit of validity to it. Regardless, keep your mind open as more solid rumors have been debunked before.
Opinion: It seems the Nexus 6-incher is really happening, guys. Over-sized smartphones are going nowhere now that Apple, Samsung and even Google are in the phablet market.
Only a day after the user manual was leaked, we are now taking a look at what could be the Motorola Droid Turbo’s battery. Let us tell you, guys, this device is looking much more amazing now that we see its battery could pack 3900 mAh of juice.
Most popular devices known for good battery life carry 3000-3300 mAh batteries. This means this bad boy will definitely pack enough juice to keep you going for a good amount of time. Yes, even if it’s running that powerful Snapdragon 805 processor and resource-heavy QHD display.
Opinion: We don’t have solid proof that this is the real battery, so don’t hold your breath on this. It does carry the same model number we saw in an FCC filing, which is the only reason why we don’t disregard it as a senseless rumor.
In other tech news, it seems Amazon is getting ready to launch its first physical store. At least that is what “sources familiar with the matter” tell the Wall Street Journal.
This store is said to be located at 7 West 34th St, which is right across from the Empire State Building. This will be no normal store, though, so don’t get too excited. Amazon is said to be making this location to simplify same-day delivery. Customers may also be able to make returns, exchanges and pick-ups.
Opinion: This seems to be more than just a test run, if true. Finding a spot in New York City is no easy task, after all. Will Amazon start establishing itself in more major cities? Let’s hope so!
