HTC Hima image ‘leaks’ possible decoys

It appears HTC has been fooling us all along: a source familiar with the ongoing development of the company’s upcoming take on its HTC One flagship device has reportedly said that images leaked earlier this week are no more than decoys meant to throw nosy snoops off the trail. This is not a weird thing to do in the secret world of device development, with Apple most (in)famous for their paranoia regarding leaks of their new devices.

Samsung Galaxy S6, S Edge confirmed by Vodafone Netherlands

Everybody is excited and prepping for the launch of Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and local carriers like Vodafone in Netherlands is no exception. Well, they’ve all but confirmed that they will be carrying the latest flagship phone – but a not-so-cursory look into the source code of the same website shows that they might also carry one “Samsung Galaxy S Edge”. Whatever might that be?

Google has announced that it is set to expand its Google Fiber internet offering into for more locations in the US. The expansion will bring high-speed fiber optic internet service to Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, NC, and Nashville. The expansion plans come from two people who claim to be familiar with the plans Google has in the works.

Sheriffs ask Google to take down police feature on Waze

More and more people are relying on traffic reporting app Waze to navigate their way around the city because of its real-time and crowd-sourcing nature. People update it regularly to report on traffic jams, car-congested areas so that drivers (and even commuters) know which roads to avoid. But another feature of the Google-powered app is causing unease among the law enforcement community as some officers believe this can be used to "stalk" their police officers.

Sony won’t announce new flagship at MWC 2015

Nothing is certain yet but there is a rumor going around that Sony isn't going to show off a new flagship smartphone at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this March. We once heard that the company is planning a "summer" launch this year of what could be the next-gen Xperia phone. This means two things for fans of Xperia: you can wait for the release of a new phone or you still have more time to get that Xperia Z3. No new flagship at the MWC 2015 would mean more time for Sony to work on new devices and for fans to anticipate these stuff from the company.

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 taking some heat

Pardon the pun in the title, will you? The Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm's new standard flagship chip and arguably one of 2015’s hottest commodities, is the Android industry's answer for catching up with Apple on the 64-bit issue, as well as better performance via octa-core processing. This early, though, the Snapdragon 810 seems to be taking heat from gadget manufacturers and critics for all the wrong reasons.

Motorola comes back to China

We already know that Motorola has officially returned to China. The company brings new smartphones and wearable choices to the emerging market. All these are happening because Lenovo's purchase of Motorola has been finally completed three months ago. This also means consumers in China have more choices now when it comes to smartphones (not that there aren't enough choices available...). Motorola is bringing the following models to China: Moto Hint (wearable), Moto G, Moto X Pro, and the Moto X.
