It's not unusual to hear of rumors that contradict each other. They are just rumors after all. These two latest ones for the awaited Galaxy S5 Mini could make your heart jump or break it, depending on who you believe, or want to believe.
Google I/O is getting nearer and with it come hopes of maybe a new Google-blessed Android device. Naturally, we will be in for some rumors, the latest of which claim that the upcoming Nexus smartphone or tablet will be codenamed "flounder".
The Android Silver name first came up earlier in the month. At the time the Silver program was thought to be a way for Google to better work with the carriers, and also to establish a bit more control over Android. There was talk of displaying these handsets in special sections of carrier stores, and having them be sold by specially trained employees.
We've been seeing a fair bit on the yet-to-be announced Amazon smartphone, and it looks like another piece has arrived this morning. Details are once again coming from BGR, and in this case they are reporting the handset will launch as an AT&T exclusive. Taking that a step further and there was mention of something called "Prime Data."
As we slowly work our way towards Google I/O 2014, we will undoubtedly come across rumors and wishes about Google's products, both current and upcoming. One such rumor is Project Hera which will try to revolutionize the way we experience the Web but will apparently not change how apps look in an equally huge way.
The OPPO Find 7 has been the subject of another series of leaks. This time around we are seeing some additional (and still rumored) specs, as well as a leaked image showing a purple smartphone. The image comes courtesy of GizChina, and aside from showing the backside of a purple Find 7 -- there appears to be some doubt in terms of authenticity.
The Unpacked 5 event will take place one week from today. Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S5 during the event, and in the meantime, it seems the rumors and leaks will continue flowing. This latest round is dealing with the display, both in terms of size and resolution.
It is rather unusual to hear of Samsung being uncertain about a shiny new feature it has in the backburner, but that is rumored to be the case here. The manufacturer is said to have a new service ready that collects contextual user data but is unsure whether it should actually release it to the public.
We're already counting down to the days before Samsung's schedule Unpacked 5 event but of course there's still time for new rumors and leaks. This time we're getting a look at what seems to be the actual size of the upcoming Galaxy S5.
