Moto Mod leaks reveal images of the Moto Power Pack and next-gen Moto Style Shells

We’ve seen images of what allegedly is the Moto Z2 Force, the sequel to this year’s Lenovo/Motorola flagship. The Moto Z2 line will continue to feature the 16 pins on the bottom rear of the handsets so that the modular Moto Mod accessories can magnetically be attached to any of the follow-up models. Today, images claiming to show a couple of new Moto Mods have been disseminated.

One of the pictures is said to be a Moto Power Pack. While we don’t know the capacity of the battery inside, already there are other Moto Mods available for the purpose of extending the battery life of the phone …


LeEco Le Max 3 leaks with dual camera, chunky metal body prior to April 11 launch

Despite its messy financial situation, LeEco keeps working on new devices, and the Le Max 3 looks quite up-to-speed. Thorough photos of the upcoming smartphone showed up online, revealing a handset that’s typically LeEco – simplified metal design with narrow screen bezels and software keys.

Notably, the smartphone features a dual camera and what looks like two LED flashes below the lens. Other points of interest include an USB Type C port, a chamfered metal frame, and a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Based on previous leaks, the Le Max 3 is powered by the Snapdragon 821 SoC, which …

Sapphire Blue Moto G5 leaks out, Internet still obsessed with Product Red iPhone

Ever thought the Moto G5 lacked a bit of Blue at launch? You are not the only one. That’s why Lenovo is prepping to launch the affordable phone in a “Blue Sapphire” color variant sometime soon.

Promotional images of the handset showed up online, presenting a very blue Moto G5. It’s so blue, it’d sing about baby leaving it while wailing away on a rusty harmonica. 
Still, it could turn out to be a breath of fresh air among the onslaught of crimson red phones that will inevitably follow Apple’s latest announcement in a few months.

No changes beyond …

The official Samsung Galaxy S8 event poster leaks on Twitter

Another day, another Galaxy S8 leak. This time, Chinese serial leakster Ice universe managed to get a hold of the official announcement poster for the handset which is supposed to have its premiere at two dedicated events in London and New York on March 29th.

With this poster, Samsung is trying to focus our attention on a few things – the Seoul-based manufacturer clearly takes pride in the edge-to-edge design of the Galaxy S8, as the outline of the phone …

Picture of Moto G5 leaks along with a shot of the box it comes in

Earlier today we passed along the latest specs allegedly belonging to the Moto G5. The specs were discovered on the GFXBench website. Also discovered today on the Brazilian OLX app, where many go to buy and sell posted items, was the image of the Moto G5 and the box that it came in. Eventually, the listing of the unannounced handset was pulled and the picture removed, but not before the image was preserved forever.

We expect the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus to be introduced on February 26th at MWC in Barcelona. The G5 should feature a 5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The handset …

Black LG G6 leaks out

Far from being one of this year’s best kept secrets, the LG G6 smartphone has been pictured numerous times until now, despite the fact that it won’t be officially showcased before February 26. Earlier today, we saw a white LG G6 next to its predecessor (the G5), and now we have newly leaked renders that show a black variant of the upcoming handset.

Revealed by Evan Blass (known as @evleaks on Twitter), the new renders present the front, rear, left, and right sides of the G6. 

Given Evan Blass’ reputation, we’re likely looking at renders that LG itself will use to …

New image of HTC One X10 mid-ranger leaks

Early in January, when everyone was still accidentally writing 2016 on their checks, tipster Evan Blass posted a tweet about the HTC One X10. This is a mid range model that would be a sequel to the HTC One X9. Blass’ missive included an image of the One X10 along with the news that the phone would be unveiled some time in the first quarter. We are a little more than half way through that three month period, and to be honest with you, we sort of lost track of the HTC One X10. It wasn’t like HTC didn’t have the new U Ultra and HTC U Play to occupy the part of our brain that deals with the manufacturer.

As …

Asus Zenfone 3 Go leaks with specs and renders

Asus’ naming convention is getting more and more confusing with each passing day. Navigating already official models is a challenge in itself, but when it comes to analyzing leaks, it really takes some dedicated investigative work to get the facts straight.

Asus-Zenfone-3-Go

This time around, however, we have an almost suspiciously straight-forward scoop.

The Zenfone 3 Go appears to be a revival of the budget “Go” line. Last we saw a Go unit up on offer was in 2015. The original Asus Zenfone Go ZC500TG bore the typical Zenfone 2 design language, including the bulky arching back and a horizontally centered main camera.

The new Zenfone 3 Go, on the other hand, logically shares most of its aesthetic with the rest of the Zenfone 3 family. The back is flat and from the looks of things has a brushed metal finish. There is no rear-mounted button, nor any physical controls on the front.

Also, the camera design now appears smaller and its circular shape and position near the edge, make the Zenfone 3 Go really blend in with many contemporary offers from the likes of Oppo, Vivo or Meizu.

Apart from the nifty renders, the leak also shares some alleged specs for the Zenfone 3 Go. These include a 5-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 410 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The camera setup consists of a 13MP main shooter with 1.4 μm pixel size and a 5MP selfie one. Overall, nothing really impressive, but still a pretty decent offer, considering the EUR 150 suggested price point.

ZTE Quartz smartwatch leaks out, circular display and Android Wear 2.0 on board

Last month, during CES 2017, ZTE confirmed that it was working on an Android Wear smartwatch – its very first such device. According to Venture Beat, the smartwatch is called ZTE Quartz, and we can take a look at it in the leaked image above.

Like many other smartwatches currently on the market (not including the Apple Watch, of course), the ZTE Quarts sports a circular display in order to resemble a traditional timepiece.

For now, there aren’t too many details on the features of the ZTE Quartz, but we know that this should come with 3G/LTE connectivity, …
