Nexus 8 details apparently leaked

A Nexus 8 tablet from Google has long been rumored. It’s not in the news every day, but every now and then we hear another mumbling about it. We assume that the search giant will unveil it at its annual I/O developer conference, which takes place on June 25 and 26. It may get official alongside the next version of Android, actually. According to the latest purported leaked info about it, the Nexus 8 should come with 3 GB of RAM...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition might be on the way

Last June, Samsung and Google launched the Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition – a device identical in hardware to the ‘vanilla’ S4, but coming with pure, unadulterated, stock Android as Google designed it. So no traces of TouchWiz, Samsung’s UI overlay that sits (heavily) atop the world’s number one mobile operating system. This year, Samsung’s already released the Galaxy S5, the obvious successor to the...

HTC Nexus 8 rumored again, coming in Q3

Many times so far it has been rumored that Google would release an 8-inch Nexus tablet this year. Some rumors said it would serve as the successor to the 2013 Nexus 7 made by Asus, others talked about an 8.9-inch offering possibly being sold alongside a new 7-incher. It might just be the former option that materializes. And, unlike what many past mumblings have said, it apparently will be HTC, not Asus, making this Nexus 8 for Google....

Next Google Nexus smartphone may be powered by MediaTek

File this one under “crazier things have happened in the mobile world”, will you? The latest rumor originating in China says Google will choose MediaTek as the chipset supplier for the next Nexus smartphone. Now that may seem unlikely given how much everyone uses Qualcomm chips these days, but remember that Google did turn to TI for the processor in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. MediaTek is the up-and-coming mobile chipset...

8.9″ Nexus tablet rumored again, could be made by HTC and may be expensive

The next Nexus tablet is in the rumors again. And this is the second time that we’re hearing it will have an 8.9-inch touchscreen, bigger than past rumors said it would be (when they talked about an 8″ display). The 8.9-inch Nexus tablet will reportedly go into mass production in July or August, and could be made by HTC. Previously, Asus was said to be making the next Nexus tablet, but these things could both be true at...

UK: Nexus 7 now just £149.99, 25% cheaper than before

If you want to get a good, small Android tablet, then the Nexus 7 is it. Decently priced, with adequate performance, and receiving immediate software updates from Google, it’s been selling pretty well – despite the growing competition in the 7-inch tablet space. In the UK, the base model (with 16 GB of built-in storage space) has been retailing for £199.99 ever since it launched last year. Now, though, you can get this...

Apple may have canceled 12.9″ iPad Pro. Next Nexus tablet could have 8.9″ screen

A 12-inch iPad has been rumored for a very long time. Longer, in fact, than a 12-inch Samsung tablet – which, by the way, got official this January at CES in two iterations, the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Apple, however, has stayed mum on going bigger with its iPad line. And if you were craving that oft-leaked 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you could be rather unlucky. That’s because the company may have...

Specs leaked for LG-made Google Nexus smartwatch

Smartwatches seem to be all the rage these days, despite the fact that not many people are buying them. Maybe that will change in the future, though, especially since more and more smartphone makers are turning their attention to this nascent product category. These companies are, of course, desperately looking for the next growth area to keep profits coming even after smartphones themselves become commodities and the smartphone...

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition debuts at Verizon just as Nexus 7 drops to $49.99 with contract

Following in the footsteps of its bigger sibling, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition has now become available at Verizon. We’ve known this would happen ever since Verizon’s version of the newest 10-inch Note tablet leaked about a month ago, and now it’s in stock. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition was announced by Samsung all the way back in September of last year, alongside the Galaxy...

Google’s next Nexus smartphone to be based on the LG G3

Now that the Nexus 5 (pictured below) has been out for a few months, the rumors about its successor are starting to appear. Could it be Lenovo making the next Nexus smartphone? Apparently not, if the latest mumbling on the matter is to be believed. First, though, let’s think a little bit about the name of the next Nexus handset. Sure, Google could just call it Nexus 6, since it is after all the sixth device in the series....
