New Galaxy Note 5 renders leaked, Write on PDF feature spotted

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is coming. Oh yes, there will be a new Note model and we might see the device this September at the IFA in Berlin but it could also arrive earlier. We’ve heard rumors and have seen a lot of leaked images already. The latest of which is a premium but rugged looking phone and case. Here’s another one from @OnLeaks, giving us an idea that the Note 5 looks like any other Galaxy device in the market today.

‘This War Of Mine’ available now for Android pre-order, get free PC copy

Most war games on Android will feature you either as a commander of an army who moves troops and vehicles around the battlefield, or a soldier right there in the thick of the battle. But the indie produced game “This War of Mine” hits you right in the grim reality feels – that in war there are civilians who are affected. This is the premise of the game produced by 11 Bit Studios initially for PC but is now available for pre-order on Android.

Oppo officially announces new crystal-backed Mirror 5s

Chinese smartphone maker Oppo continues to try and make its mark outside of its native country by launching more new products, and unveiling it elsewhere as well. They have officially announced their newest device, the Mirror 5s, a 4G LTE smartphone whose looks can rival those of its higher end competitors. The specs itself cannot match them probably, but if you're in the market for a dual-sim, mid-range device, then you might consider this one, if you've had it with the other more popular brands.

Remix OS 1.5 now ready for Jide, Nexus 10 tablets

We know Remix OS to run on Jide Remix tablets but last April, the company decided to bring the custom mobile OS to Nexus 10 and Nexus 9 tablets as well. The newly announced Remix Mini will also run Remix OS when the Android PC is ready later this year. If you're not yet familiar with the custom version, Remix OS shows off a customized home screen, notification ares, and a taskbar. It also features multiple app support so more apps can run in windows among others.

Classic devices get Android 5.1, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy S II

Two old warhorses are getting a taste of Lollipop these days – the Motorola Xoom, one of Motorola (and Verizon’s) first premium tablets, and the Samsung Galaxy S II, the smartphone that started global smartphone domination for Samsung. These devices are ancient by current standards and have no right to be running the latest and greatest Android version, but it is a testament to their robust hardware design and the commitment of aftermarket software developers that this is even possible.

Umi shows off Yotaphone 2-like Dual-screen phone with E Ink display

We may not be familiar with Umi but this Chinese phone maker has something special in store for the Android market: a smartphone with two screens. Not that the concept is alien to us but the image shows us a clearer idea of the e-ink display screen which can be found on the other side of the phone. In front, you'll see a normal, color screen display while at the back is an e-ink display screen that can show basic apps like clock, weather, alarm, calls, or messages.

LG G Pro 3 rumored specs leaked, possibly out by Q4

There were hints that Korean manufacturer LG was calling time on its LG G Pro phablet line – the product series targets those LG fans who want bigger screens on their mobile devices – because they didn’t put out a successor to the LG G Pro 2 last year. Industry pundits attribute that to the concentration the company put in launching the LG G4 flagship. Now rumors are starting to surface that LG might be putting out the LG G Pro 3 before the year ends.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 not eligible for Android 5.0 Lollipop

Since rumors about the Galaxy Note 5 are going around, this could also mean the previous Note models from Samsung are getting older each day. For one, the Galaxy Note 2 is almost three years old now having been introduced at the IFA Berlin in August 2012. Sadly, a mobile device of that age usually cannot be easily upgraded to the latest Android software version because it may not have the minimum hardware requirements.

Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter to arrive at the Play Store next month

We should be used to this by now, as this is obviously not the first time a game has been introduced via iOS first before hitting Android. In some cases, the delay even takes years – so the 1 month delay of Bethesda’s “Fallout Shelter” mobile game coming from the Apple ecosystem to Android should not discourage Fallout fans out there.
