Samsung will not release the Galaxy Note 5 this July

Despite the strong rumors (or maybe that was just wishful thinking on their part?) that Samsung will break tradition and release the new version of their phablet earlier, an official statement from the Korean OEM's president seems to have debunked that. Samsung President Shin Jong-Kyun confirmed that there will be no June or July announcement of the Galaxy Note 5, although there is still no definite date as to when that will actually happen.

Early Samsung Galaxy Note 5, ‘Project Zen’ details emerge

Now that everybody’s quite happy with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge (even Samsung is quite happy with themselves for the current flagship’s sales), we can start moving on to what Samsung might have in store for us toward the end of the year. We’re possibly looking at early details to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and a possible successor to the Galaxy Note Edge mysteriously coded as “Project Zen” at the moment.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge starts receiving Lollipop update

As they say (whoever they are), good things come to those who wait. For the owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the wait for the Android 5.0 Lollipop has been fraught with anxiety (are we really going to get an update?), impatience (why aren't we getting it yet?), and despair (we're never going to get it are we?). But finally, the wait is over as the official announcement is here. Well, at least for those who are on T-Mobile, that is.

ZTE ZMAX phablet now back on T-Mobile Website

Aside from the news that that Galaxy Note 4 getting a taste of Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, T-Mobile is also relisting the ZTE ZMAX. This was actually soon after the Sony Xperia Z3 was also relisted on the website after being absent from the lineup for some time. This is good news for those who want a ZTE ZMAX and want to get the Android tablet only from T-Mobile. It wasn't actually a long absence but the ten days of possible sales is already a loss for both companies.

T-Mobile suspends ZTE ZMax sales, owners taking off the batt

After less than a year of being carried by T-Mobile, the ZTE Zmax phablet is no more. ZTE didn't pull out of a deal with T-Mobile but it was the mobile carrier who recently suspended its sales. It's not because no one is buying the ZTE phablet but rather people are hacking in to the phone. T-Mobile might have been pissed off at those people trying to fix the phone themselves and looks like they've had it already.

LeTV looks to be a new player in high-end devices

It wasn’t too long ago when China-based brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus made their debut and sounded their challenge to the established order of smartphone manufacturers. These young Chinese companies were aggressive and were willing to sell devices that have the same or almost the same specs as the flagship and high-end devices Samsung, Apple, HTC or LG – and selling them at ridiculously low prices. It looks like we have another new player in LeTV.

ZTE rolls out Blade S6 Plus phablet with bigger screen, batt

ZTE may not be "up there" with the biggest brands but the Chinese manufacturer is certainly making a name in the mobile industry with affordable smartphones. Only less than two weeks after the Nubia Z9 Mini and Z9 Max , a new mobile is introduced in the form of the ZTE Blade S6 Plus. This 'Plus' is a actually a phablet version of the Android Lollipop-powered ZTE Blade S6 which debuted in January. As with any other flagship phones, the Blade S6 got a bigger sibling. Phablets are expected to be expensive but ZTE is offering this one for a low price of $299.99. A sub $300 phone-tablet is considered mid-range--very affordable for anyone who wants a bigger smartphone.

More HTC One M9 Plus leaks as Beijing event invite flies out

Well surprise, surprise. A day after we featured some “less than believable” mockups of what was purportedly the new HTC One M9 Plus – a bigger version of the newly launched HTC One M9 flagship, a la Apple's iPhone 6 Plus – we have an event invite coming out of HTC for an unveiling event in Beijing, plus a couple of images of more “solid” leaks pointing to the fact that the new phone might be closer to reality than we thought.
