Micromax does an HTC: Canvas Selfie with 13MP front camera

In an attempt to lure in the selfie crowd, India's Micromax has just announced the conspicuously named Canvas Selife. While not yet the Cyanogen-bearing smartphone, which will come via a different brand (YU), this one is still a bit interesting. In a sense, it is trying to match HTC's Desire EYE by pairing rather decent specs with a front-facing camera that is on par with the rear.

Tonino Lamborghini releases high spec luxury phone

The one thing we have noticed about luxury phones is that while they may be impeccably classy in their physical and tangible elements, they usually lack the power in the “under the hood” department, where the specs are simply way below flagship phone levels. Lamborghini – the famed Italian luxury car brand – hopes this will not be the case with the Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri, a high-specced luxury Android smartphone.

Galaxy S6 benchmarks show 5.5-inch QHD screen and 20MP camera

We are undoubtedly months away from anything resembling official comments on the Samsung Galaxy S6. The earliest we are expecting to possibly see the device in any official capacity is at MWC next year. Ahead of any official unveil all we can do is keep an eye out for leaks and rumors to get an idea what the S6 might be like.

US residents may very well be getting a taste of the Chinese OEM Xiaomi's brand of smartphones as it looks like they might be entering the market by 2015.
