Latest leak confirms key details surrounding Google’s next-gen Nexus phones

It was a few months ago that we first heard that HTC might make not one but two 2016 Nexus devices from Google. More rumors emerged since then, including a few reports from trustworthy sources, providing design details and specs list for the HTC Sailfish and Marlin, the upcoming 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch new Nexus devices. A fresh leak seems to confirm some of these reports, indicating that the Sailfish will have the high-end specs you expect. More →

Google’s new Nexus phones may look unbelievably good

Google is expected to launch two new Nexus devices that will offer users a better experience than any other Nexus smartphone to date. Sure, they’re supposed to be better than last year’s smartphones because they’ll feature better hardware and run a brand new operating system out of the box.

But unlike previous Nexus handsets, the HTC-made Marlin and Sailfish are expected to be faster than same year Android flagships. Moreover, both devices are tipped to feature the same internal configuration, meaning that the smaller phone won’t be inferior when it comes to overall performance.

A concept video recreated using existing rumors and leaks shows us what we can expect from the Marlin and Sailfish’s design.

Google’s 2016 Nexus smartphones are probably going to be flagship killers

Google is widely expected to launch two new Nexus smartphones in the coming months, and unlike last year, the 2016 HTC-made devices will be identical when it comes to hardware. What’s more interesting is that both Sailfish and Marlin should be faster than any of the existing flagship Android devices, which isn’t something you could always say about a Nexus-branded smartphone.

This year, however, the new Nexus handsets might be real flagship killers, to paraphrase the former motto of a certain smartphone maker, and could offer a better overall performance than the Galaxy S7, HTC 10, LG G5, and most other 2016 flagships from competing phone makers.

Video: As BlackBerry and Microsoft battle for market share, a new contender emerges

The battle between BlackBerry and Microsoft for the No.3 spot in the smartphone platform war is showing no signs of slowing, but a new contender will soon come to market to challenge these struggling giants. Jolla, whose CEO spoke with us nearly a year ago about the company’s efforts, has unveiled its first smartphone. Named simply “Jolla,” the handset will feature a 4.5-inch HD display, a dual-core processor, 4G LTE, 16GB of internal storage, microSD support, an 8-megapixel camera, Android app support and the Sailfish mobile operating system. Most impressively of all, perhaps, is the price tag: just €399 before taxes and subsidies. Jolla says it hopes to begin shipping the phone by the end of 2013, and a video of the upcoming handset follows below. More →
