Casio has historically been known as a maker of reliable digital timepieces that can take a beating. Over the years, the company has introduced a range of smart and quirky features that in some ways can be termed as smart features in their own right. However, a true smartwatch from the Japanese company has so far remained elusive. This is all set to change.
Kazuhiro Kashio, President of Casio, has announced that the company is working on a device that is a watch first and will pack in smart functionality on top of it. The goal here is to create a product that will appeal to men involved in outdoor sports and leisure activities. On paper, this appears very similar to currently existing G-Watch wearables and it remains to see if the company will integrate a platform like Android Wear...
Samsung Galaxy J2 has popped in various rumors throughout the last few months, but just few days ago we learned some units was shipped in India for testing purposes. This was an obvious sign Samsung is very close to launching the Galaxy J2 officially.
Today we got an even better evidence the Galaxy J2 is indeed now in testing. The smartphone popped in the GeekBench results database. According to its recorded data, the J2 packs a quad-core 1.2GHz 32-bit processor (probably Cortex-A7), 1GB of RAM and runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
From the previous leak we know the Galaxy J2 display should be a 4.7" qHD unit, a small bump over the Galaxy J1.
We expect the device to go official very soon. It should be launched in India, and probably China, before other markets....
According to @evleaks, the BlackBerry Venice slider with Android on board will launch on AT&T Wireless in the United States. The device is rumored to arrive in November with Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 on board.
Along with that, @evleaks posted an alleged press image of a handset that looks a lot like BlackBerry Passport, running Android. The latter’s navigation keys are clearly visible in the render.
BlackBerry phone with Android has been in in the rumor mill for a while now. We’ll keep an eye out for more details on the company’s plans going forward.
Archos quietly introduced the 50d Helium 4G smartphone with dual-SIM and dual-standby capabilities for the US market. The budget-friendly smartphone will hit the shelves later this month with $129 price tag and Android 5.1 out of the box.
Design-wise, the Archos 50d Helium looks a lot like the OnePlus One. The handset will be offered with swappable rear-panels with stone finish in Storm Blue and Stone Grey.
The 70d Helium packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable memory. A 5” 720p display, 13MP main camera with LED Flash, and 5MP front-facing snapper are also on board. Connectivity options of the device include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS with A-GPS..
Measuring 8.4mm thick, the 50d Helium weighs 154 grams including the battery. The latter has a...
OnePlus One’s successor the OnePlus 2 is getting quite a lot of hype these days both from the company officially as well as from leaks. Latest news suggests that the handset will be available in 3 variants including one version with 4GB RAM.
The three models in question namely the A2001, A2003 and A2005 have been spotted over at Bluetooth SIG. We aren’t sure what is the difference between the three models. Perhaps they will have 16, 64 and 128GB capacities respectively.
Back in May, we saw the A2001 model getting benchmarked but now we have a benchmark for the A2003 model as well and it is shown to pack 4GB of RAM. The processor seems to be the same Snapdragon 810 clocked in at 1.5 GHz just as the one on the A2001.
New sources suggest that Asus is planning to announce a new budget smartphone and that it will be powered by Mediatek’s processor instead of the Intel processors that are currently used on their ZenFone 2 lineup.
The phone will be called the ZenFone Go and the model number is ZC500TG. The device is said to have a 5 inch HD display (most likely 720p) and will be powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor. It is also said to have 8GB of storage as well as 2GB of RAM.
Unlike manufacturers who used the Snapdragon 810 processor, Asus are actually having a good time with their Intel processors on the ZenFone 2 as it is giving good performance to the users. So the switch to MediaTek processors might just be a bid to save costs rather than being performance related.
Along with the Huawei Honor 7 smartphone, the company has unveiled Honor Band Zero smartwatch that sports a round dial and looks thin in terms of design.

The watch will support IP68 certification that will protect it from dust and water. Honor Band Zero is said to show message notifications and display incoming calls. It will also come with pedometer and sleep tracker. Moving on, the smartwatch has a textured rubber strap and the watch will be available in Black, Beige, White color belt options.Unfortunately, no other details about the specs of the smartwatch are known but it will be available in China...

With the release of iOS 8.4 today, many users found themselves faced with the decision to upgrade now or wait until a jailbreak is available so they can continue using their tweaks. That choice just got a lot easier, as the Taig development team has announced that the exploits used in their 8.3 jailbreak are all still available in the new update.

Purported live photos showcasing the metal housing of the upcoming iPhone 6s made the rounds online, courtesy of 9to5Mac. The images have reportedly arrived from a source within Apple’s supply chain.
Rather unsurprisingly, the leaked images reveal that the iPhone 6s will feature the same design as the model it is bound to replace. It is also said to feature similar thickness and width as the outgoing model.
Even the Space Gray color scheme of the leaked housing is the same as the one in the current iPhone 6. However, 9to5Mac points that the final hardware could feature subtle tweaks that include a darker Space Gray option to match the one found in the Apple Watch.
