Possible LG G4 dual-SIM variant leaks ahead of launch

The launch of LG’s flagship, the LG G4, is just a day away and we’re seeing this new leak out of Iran, of all places. The leak shows what is probably a dual-SIM variant of the new flagship from the Korean gadget manufacturer, and both a plastic-backed and the premium leather-backed variant as well.

Lenovo K80 launched to lock horns with ASUS ZenFone 2

So how many mid-tier phones do you know out there with dual-channel 4GB RAM? “Not a lot” is the answer you’ll get, most probably. In truth, the ASUS ZenFone 2 was indeed the first one out there to utilize this much RAM. Then that was followed by Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro phablet. But those two are not in the same category. Now Lenovo is coming out with the K80, yes, with 4GB of RAM and a lot closer to where the ZenFone 2 is, market-wise.

ASUS ZenFone 2 starts selling in India

Qualcomm to build its next-gen chips on Samsung foundries

Make no mistake about it, this is a big deal for everyone following tech news. Qualcomm, makers of the Snapdragon chipsets that are so famous in the mobile industry, are set to move away from tradition and have come to an agreement that their next-gen chips – the Snapdragon 820, in all possibilities – will be made using Samsung’s foundries.

EA Sports UFC mobile game launches today, pricey IAPs

We were wondering when a developer would actually pick up on the boom of the popularity of UFC and mixed martial arts in general. That question is answered today, as EA Sports launches the “EA SPORTS UFC” game on Android (and iOS). The game has been a relative success during its soft-launch period, so let’s see if that would translate to the global market.

Rooting will disable Samsung Pay on Galaxy S6

Ok, we understand that some people just don’t like Samsung’s TouchWiz. It’s gotten tremendously better in the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but there are some people who just don’t care for it. So the next thing they do is gain root access to get rid of the bloatware – which is standard procedure, we guess. Only, this might make you think twice. Rooting your Galaxy S6 will make your device ineligible for Samsung Pay.
