Budget iPhone rear shells

More photos of the rear shell of the rumored entry-level budget iPhone have reportedly leaked. Of course, there's no way to verify the authenticity of these, but French rumor site Nowhereelse has leaked the real deal before. As you can see from the image, there's red, yellow, white, blue, and green shells--this matches up nicely with the current multi-colored iPod touch lineup. Apple has been expected to release an iPhone for emerging markets that is less expensive than its flagship models, and it's possible that we will finally see the introduction of this device this fall, alongside the announcement of the iPhone 5S.

Nexus 7 32GB exists, purchased at Staples

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Google, Handhelds, Rumors

Nexus 7 32GB

Rumors have been circulating that a 32GB Nexus 7 tablet is imminent, and now those rumors have materialized to be factual. First, what you see above is an image of the sticker from a Nexus 7 32GB box. Need more proof? The Verge has received proof of purchase from a tipster and posted the receipt. Google has yet to announce any official news of the bump in storage capacity for the Nexus 7, and our hearts go out to early adopters of the tablet as, based on the receipt, it sells for the same price that the 16GB version currently sells for. Also, it appears that it doesn't come with the $25 Google Play gift card as was offered when the product first debuted.

If you're itching to get a tablet and enjoy (pure) Android, this Jelly Bean tablet isn't a bad deal. Try your luck and call your local Staples to see if they have 'em in stock. Make sure to holla back at Gear Live and tell us about it if you find one! We expect Google to officially unveil this one at its October 29 Android event.

Redesigned Apple headphones appear on video

New Apple headphones

The fine folks at Tinh Tê have managed to snag what appears to be a new, redesigned pair of the iconic Apple earphones. The alleged iPhone earphones appear cone-shaped, perhaps so they may fit snugly in the ear canal. Good news to all small-eared readers out there: this redesign would probably keep them from popping out while bumping to music, or running with the Nike+ app. If the redesign turns out to be true, they would be a welcome addition to be included with the next-generation iPhone. All the rumors are pointing to a  September 12 Apple iPhone announcement. Thanks to Google translate, it is understood that the earphones are more compact than previous models. According to the reports, the sound quality is much improved and the bass is significantly louder. Video after the break!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Google, Rumors

Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE

Looks like the Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE device has been leaked with pics and specs galore. What can you expect from the former XT907 Verizon device? How about a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box? Yeah, we know, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been out for a couple of months, but that's how it goes with Android. Other features include 1GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera and 3-megapixel front camera, 8GB internal storage (expandable with a microSD card,) and NFC. You get the same industrial Kevlar design that's found on the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX, which is actually nice. We expect it to be officially unveiled on September 5th.

Hands-on video shows off rumored next iPhone design and metal casing

iPhone 5 metal back

Video footage of the purported next-generation iPhone has surfaced today, courtesy of ETrade Supply, a reseller of parts. The video appears to confirm the new iPhone images we posted a couple of weeks ago, showing the two-tone rear metal casing of the next Apple smartphone, as well as a taller profile with larger display. Other changes that seem to be confirmed include the move of the headphone jack from the top of the device to the bottom, larger speakers, and a much smaller dock port. We also see that the SIM card tray in the new model is a bit smaller that the ones Apple has used in the past.

Black and white next-gen iPhone leak: Smaller dock, metal rear, larger display, headphone jack moved

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Cell Phones, Handhelds, Rumors

New iPhone parts leak

You're looking at what's believed to be the rear panel of the next iPhone (above.) The part was uncovered by iFixYouri, which was tipped off by a "reliable source" at a Chinese parts supplier (the same source who revealed that the iPad 2 would be available in white) who already has the parts for sale. 9to5Mac was able to get even more images of the device.

As you can see in the image, the rear casing matches up quite nicely with recent rumors. We see the rear metal backing (although this is aluminum alloy and not LiquidMetal,) a spot for a much smaller dock connector, and larger speaker grilles as well. In addition, the sides of the device are incorporated into the back piece, and it appears that the headphone jack has been moved to the bottom as well, similar to the iPod touch.

Of course this is all rumor and speculation at this point, and even if real, plans can change at any time. Continue reading for more images!

Leaked Samsung Galaxy S III surfaces in Vietnam

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: Cell Phones, Handhelds, Rumors, Videos

Normally we wouldn’t trust leaks that come out of Asia since you have to take them with a grain of salt due to the fact that there are so many realistic fakes out there, but on occassion, there are some newsworthy items. Such is the case for the Samsung Galaxy S III, which was spotted on Vietnamese site Tinhte.

Currently, the smartphone goes by the mundane name of GT-I9300. However, if Samsung plans on sticking to its current naming scheme it’ll be called the Galaxy S III, and it should be fantastic. According to Tinhte, the phone boasts a 4.6-inch display with 720 x 1184 resolution. The phone is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smoothly. The phone features 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage that's expandable using the micro SD slot. For those that are addicted to Instagram, you’ll be able to shoot away using the 8 megapixel camera, and the phone is also equipped with NFC.

Since this is a prototype, expect the external look of the phone may change slightly. We’re assuming that Samsung will drop the tacky plastic rim around the handset, for example. Samsung has gone on the record by neither denying nor claiming the GT-I9300 as the next Galaxy S III, only stating “We will be able to tell you more at the 2012 Samsung Mobile Unpacked.” So we’ll just have to wait and see. Until that time, enjoy the video of the leak above.

Motorola Droid 3 spec leak: dual-core, 4-inch qHD display

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Handhelds, Rumors

Motorola Droid 3 leak

What we've got above is a leaked image of the Motorola Droid 3, but that doesn't really tell us much about what's happening on the inside of the device. However, TechnoBuffalo is saying that they've got the goods, and if they are to be believed, this'll be a nice upgrade over the current Droid 2 smartphone. The display here is reportedly a 4-inch qHD screen, and inside there's a dual-core processor (similar to the Droid X2,) front-facing camera, and 8 megapixel camera around back. The other pertinent detail here is that the Droid 3 won't be packing a 4G LTE chipset.
