LG G2 rumored with edge-to-edge 1080p display, buttons on the back

If you've been following the recent news and rumors surrounding LG's upcoming flagship smartphone, then you should be pretty excited to see it come August 7th. Last week they confirmed Qualcomm's impressive Snapdragon 800 quad-core at 2.3 GHz was on board, and now more leaks are reporting some rather exciting specs to go along with it. That's if the rumors are to be believed of course.

Samsung Galaxy MEGA poses as the ‘Note III’ in latest leak

Today we're seeing multiple reports again that the Samsung Galaxy Note III has leaked, and we're even getting live images of the rumored smartphone tablet hybrid. We're sorry to bring you bad news, but this is not the Samsung Galaxy Note III, which is expected to be revealed in August of this year at IFA. Instead, it's the recently announced Samsung Galaxy MEGA 6.3-inch device. Don't believe the rumors.

Google Mine: an unannounced place to catalog and collect things

It is looking like Google has begun testing a new service called Mine. The details are just starting to come available and for now what we have seen has the service listed as being "internal only." That of course brings the warning that Google always has plenty of items in such a state and not all will see a public release. That said, Google Mine looks to be a place where you can collect and catalog things.

Android Key Lime Pie slated for October release according to insider

Today some interesting rumors have started making the rounds regarding the next version of Android. Google I/O came and went without an announcement of a new and improved OS, and that rumored June 10th Android 4.3 Jelly Bean reveal never happened. So now we're all left wondering what is next, and when. While we still expect Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to arrive soon, new sources claim Android 5.0 KLP will debut in early October.

Galaxy Note III photos appear again: but a “Mega” they may be

We know the folks from Samsung are working hard on their next-gen Galaxy Note smartphone, but we've yet to see it. Yesterday we brought you pictures that were being reported as the first images of Samsung's upcoming 5.99-inch Galaxy Note III. Sadly, another has surfaced today (along with other reports) that seems to confirm it was just a fluke, and was the already announced Samsung Galaxy Mega coming in at 6.3-inches.

LG Optimus L7 II teased with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on board

Back in Spain during the Mobile World Congress event the folks from LG had quite a bit of smartphones to announce. One of many was their new Optimus L7 II mid-range handset. We know the device is coming, and we also know that Android 4.3 Jelly Bean should be coming soon, but maybe they know something we don't. Today LG's website has the device listed with Google's latest OS update on board, but it could just be a mistake.

Motorola “Google Edition” phones up next

When Google purchased Motorola for over $12 billion in 2011, many (myself included) thought Motorola would be the first company to release what we're now seeing as Google or Nexus experience phones. However, Samsung managed to beat them to the punch, and now even HTC. What gives? Google told us they built a firewall between Android and Motorola, but could the next wave of Motorola phones all be Google Editions? Yup.
