Leaked Windows Phone 8 images surface

Windows Phone 8 leak

What you see above are purported leaked images of Windows Phone 8, Apollo. Microsoft is set to unveil Windows Phone 8 to the world at next week's Windows Phone Summit on June 20th. What the images above show is built-in Skype integration (Microsoft purchased Skype months ago,) a data usage function that shows how much of your monthly data cap you have left along with the number of days left in your billing cycle, and the camera app with the new lenses feature. We can't say for sure that these are authentic, but they certainly appear that way. We'll know for sure next week!

Earlier today we brought you a look at a hands-on video of the purported next-generation iPhone, which seems to match all the rumors and speculation we've been hearing to date. Now, we've got some images as well. Check out the new iPhone leaked pictures gallery to get an up-close look, and let us know what you think. Is this the new iPhone that we'll see launch this fall?

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.

iOS 6 Maps app preview

iOS 6 Maps

As previously reported, Apple is set to replace Google Maps in iOS 6 with an in-house solution that's the result of the company acquiring mapping companies like C3 Technologies, Poly9, and Placebase. Today, we see leaked screenshots from a BGR "trusted source" that shows off a bit more of what we can expect.

The screenshots show that the new 3D mode is certainly in the works in build 10A314 of iOS 6. Again, this is a total replacement for Google Maps, allowing Apple to provide the exact Maps experience that it want to provide on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. We expect to get a full preview of iOS 6 at WWDC next month.


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

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 video shows WWE ‘13 to launch November 1

Recent WWE television spots have been promoting the arrival of a "revolution," causing many to speculate what exactly that would be. As it turns out, the revolution that will be revealed this Monday night on Raw is the WWE '13 video game. Above we have a leaked video that seems to lack sound, showing off CM Punk in the commercial spot, followed by some footage from the game, including a recreation of Mark Henry and The Big Show destroying the ring with a superplex, foreshadowing that this will be something you can do in the game itself.


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.

Leaked Photos of the HTC Incredible 4g

The HTC Incredible 4G has been kept under wraps leaving us to only guess what the phone might be like. Well, thanks to a quality leak we now have the specs and pictures of the phone.

Android Police reports that the phone has about a 4-inch high definition display (this is only a visual guess,) and is powered by a 1.2 GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, and (of course) will run on Verizon's LTE network. It'll run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate alongside Sense 4. The smartphone will also feature an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA-front-facing camera, NFC, MHL, and Beats Audio support. The estimated price is in the neighborhood of $99-$149 with a two year contract.

Check out more photos after the jump and let us know what you think!

Halo 4 Multiplayer Details Leak

Halo 4 leak

Buckle yourselves in Halo fans because we have a lot of news to cover. On the 7th of this month a currently anonymous person, who we assume works at the ever popular magazine Game Informer, released for the viewing pleasure of the public the entire Halo 4 cover article. This article goes into great detail about the games multiplayer features and what we can expect at the games launch. Reactions are currently mixed, as no one knows what to make of all of this information. Neither 343 Industries nor Game Informer have made any comment about the leak.

Spartan Ops, Forerunner Vision, and Regicide are a few of the highlights posted in the leaked article. Let's break these all down. Spartan Ops, think Special Ops from Call of Duty but instead of all missions available immediately, we will most likely see Spartan Ops missions released as updates or DLC for the game. By the final Spartan Ops mission release, the entire length of the Ops is said to be comparable to the Halo 4 campaign itself. This is a tactic to keep players invested in the game over time and looks to be very promising. Forerunner Vision has many Halo fans up in arms, as this ability allows the player to see through walls. This could be used to locate enemy positions on the map easier, possibly eliminating camping. Finally there is Regicide, a free-for-all game type similar to VIP. In Regicide, the player with the most kills becomes the “King” and every kill that they get after that adds to points that another player can get after killing the “King.”

That is all we would like to share with you for now but if you would like to read the full list of Multiplayer additions and changes or you want to see a full gallery from the magazine, hit the link below.
