Alcatel’s OneTouch Hero 8 is a slim octa-core 8-inch tablet

You may have noticed it, but it just needs saying that going “octa-core” (8 processor cores, for the uninitiated) seems to be the trend at the ongoing IFA 2014 in Berlin. A lot of manufacturers are outing new devices with octa-core processors and Alcatel is one of those with the OneTouch Hero 8 – a stylish new tablet with power to spare.

Alcatel gives affordable LTE connectivity with POP2 smartphones

Alcatel’s POP devices have been one the manufacturer’s most accessible products since its 2013 refresh – offering budget-friendly devices with respectable specs. At IFA 2014, it looks like we’re getting another refresh with Alcatel announcing the POP 2 series of phones – and from the looks of it, they’re going to be competitive with the other phones in their market.

Specs for the new Moto X, back then called X+1 or even X2, have already been leaked and some of them even came true.

Now that we've got our eyes and hands on with the new flagship, we can safely say that Motorola has another winner in the making.

The new Moto G: bigger, faster, still pure Android

Motorola has come out with the successor to its budget flagship, simply called the new Moto G.

Did Motorola leak video of Moto G 2014 (in Brazil)?

Leaks are usually not as well-made like this, so we’d like to think that a video making the rounds showing off the Moto G 2014 (still not the official name) was actually from Motorola. With just a day left until they actually announce their new smartphone, chances are they just want to hype up the excitement, even though you actually have to speak Portugese to understand it, since it is made for a Brazilian audience.
