Samsung Galaxy S 4 Leak

It appears that someone has been naughty and wants to spoil the party by uploading videos of the new Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphones before the launch tonight in New York City.

The first video highlights floating touch, which I presume allows the user to manipulate the screen without making physical contact. The feature was first introduced by Sony's Xperia Sola last year. Check out all four videos after the break.

iPad 5 rear shell leaked, matches iPad mini style?

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Rumors

iPad 5 leak

This is the alleged iPad 5 back plate, and as you can see, it's similar in design to the iPad mini's rear shell. At the present moment, the leaked parts are not 100% substantiated as actual parts designed by Apple or made by their manufacturing partners, but nothing is ever confirmed until Apple takes the stage and makes an announcement. The report from 9to5Mac also claims that the thinness almost matches the iPad mini, an impressive feat. For many, it is somewhat obvious that Apple would follow the similar trend of the new iPhone 5 and iPad mini design for the 5th generation iPad, as they're Jonathan Ive creations; and as witnessed in the past, this is the time of year when leaked parts that end up being true start appearing.

Unannounced leaked BlackBerry Z10 purportedly demoed on video

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Cell Phones, Handhelds, Rumors, Videos

BlackBerry z10 leak

Research In Motion's BlackBerry 10 mobile OS, formally QNX, has been widely publicized; however, little is known about RIM's other ability, hardware, until now. A video has been posted to YouTube of an iPhone-esque phone with a BlackBerry logo allegedly dub the BlackBerry Z10. To be clear, this is not the demo units that were given to developers for the purpose of making apps and taking the OS for a spin. Perhaps, this is a unit that is slated for mass production? We will soon find out as RIM has an event scheduled for later this month. Until then, check out the video leak.

New BlackBerry 10 Screenshots show voice recognition, updated UI

BlackBerry 10 home screen

BlackBerry 10 is nearing its debut, and more screenshots have come out showing what's new in the BB10 operating system.

From the newest screenshots posted on Tihnte, it appears the BB10 is taking a book out of Apple's playbook and incorporating a smart voice assistant. Voice commands were announced earlier, and the screenshots show you will definitely be able to make dictations, but other functionality, if any at all, is unknown.

The screenshots also showcase BB10's Twitter client, which doesn't stray to far from the iOS and Android comfort zones. There's also some looks at the BlackBerry Hub and new visual stylings of the BB10.

iPad mini leak

Apple is set to reveal the iPad mini to the world at this morning's iPad mini event, but it looks like the device may have been caught on camera shortly before Apple got started! Check out the video above from ETrade Supply. These are the same guys who leaked a video of the iPhone 5 design weeks before it was announced by Apple, and they were spot on. What do you think? Would Apple really remove the front camera on the iPad mini? Hit the video after the break to see for yourself.

Mysterious images of Sony Nexus X smartphone pop up in Piscasa

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Cell Phones, Google, Handhelds, Rumors

Sony Nexus X

Rumor has it that Google may release two new Nexus devices: one made by LG, and the other by Sony. Two photos have popped up on the Piscasa photo sharing site, and they seemingly reveal an angled image of a device with Sony and Google branding on the back. This could be a hoax, but from a competitive perspective, two Nexus devices are better than one. The idea could propel the Nexus brand from a niche market to the mainstream; much like what Samsung did with the Galaxy line. Also, the image details shows that it was taken with a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We caught a  screenshot of it before the author decided to remove that piece of important detail. More images after the break.

iPad mini battery leaked in photo

Leaked iPad Mini Battery

MacRumors has obtained photos of what is reported to be the internal battery for the upcoming iPad mini. As indicated by the battery's marking of 3.72 volts, the battery life on the 7.85-inch iPad is expected to be between an iPhone and fully sized new iPad, 16.7 Whr of juice on 4490 mAh of charge. As a disclaimer, we can't yet authenticate if the leaked part is legitimately from Apple, but based on other Apple-designed batteries, it has the familiar markings of past and current products. The battery is still in regulatory limbo, and is subject to be changed if needed.

The iPad mini is rumored to be unveiled on October 23rd. How's that for doubling down on secrecy?
