Asus Zenfone 2 Finally Arriving to US via Amazon & Newegg

May 18, 2015 - 4:09 PM - by dgstorm

Even though the Asus Zenfone 2 was first announced back in January at CES, it is only just now being released to the US market via online retailers. There will be two versions of the device which will be sold unlocked to be used on nearly any carrier, and they are remarkably powerful and affordable. Here's the breakdown:

Asus Zenfone 2 (2GB RAM version & 16GB Storage) = $199.99 Unlocked
  • 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display (which accounts for 72% of the phone’s front) - with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 1.8GHz Z3560
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB Storage
  • A microSD slot
  • 3,000mAh battery with quick charging (60% in 39 mins)
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

Asus Zenfone 2 (4GB RAM version & 64GB Storage) = $299.99 Unlocked
  • 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display (which accounts for 72% of the phone’s front) - with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 2.3GHz Intel Z3580
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB Storage
  • A microSD slot
  • 3,000mAh battery with quick charging (60% in 39 mins)
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

The Asus Zenfone 2 will go on sale in the US tomorrow at Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo, and Groupon. This seems like a pretty significant device for this small of a price. What do you guys think?

Samsung Teases the Box for the Iron Man Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

May 15, 2015 - 10:26 AM - by dgstorm

Samsung's PR team took to Twitter this morning to tease the upcoming Iron Man Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. We don't actually get to see the device yet, but they did share an image of the box.

If the actual phone looks half as good as the box, it could be a real crowd-pleaser, especially for fans of Marvel or just Iron Man. At first it may seem odd that Sammy is only releasing an Iron Man version of the device when they could use Avengers: Age of Ultron fever in order to push out multiple different colored devices. It actually makes sense, however. Samsung and Marvel likely want to see what kind of response they get before they commit to a full lineup of Avengers themed devices.

Either way, the Iron Man Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is "coming soon," so stay tuned. We will share more details as they hit the web.

More LG Nexus 5 2015 Edition Rumors Hit the Web

May 14, 2015 - 11:08 AM - by dgstorm

We've shared a new Nexus 5 rumor for you guys earlier in the week, and now we have a second rumor to serve as backup. In this rumor LG has supposedly "confirmed" it is considering making the next gen (2015 Edition) of the Nexus 5. Our previous rumor suggested the new Nexus 5 will have a slightly larger screen at 5.2-inches and come later in the Fall of this year. This new intel seemingly corroborates that.

What is really strange is how it was worded. An unnamed LG exec supposedly said, ''it's under consideration at LG.'' This suggests that the decision to take the Google contract hasn't yet been made, but that Google offered the contract to them. When Google was contacted for comment on the subject, they said they would, "not comment on rumors or speculations".

The important question to ask if LG takes the contract is whether LG would use the Snapdragon 808, the 810 or some newer Qualcomm chip in the near future. They obviously were concerned about the 810 and dropped it for the G4. Would Qualcomm be able to come out with their next-gen part (perhaps the 815 or 820) before LG needs to get the manufacturing process rolling?

Yotaphone 2 Will Have a White Version with Lollipop and Improved E-Ink Display

May 13, 2015 - 4:07 PM - by dgstorm

Some new info just dropped on the latest Yotaphone 2. Apparently, the phone will see a new release (basically a refresh) with a few subtle differences. One is that there will now be a white colored version. Another is that the phone will now include Android 5. x Lollipop.

On top of that, there is also rumor that the newer version will include new software that will enhance its E-Ink display. Here's a quote with more of the details,

An update to Lollipop 5.0 is rolling out to all YotaPhone 2 devices and aside from all the improvements to Android that this new version packs, it also adds some significant changes to Yota's own software layer mostly affecting the E Ink side. It should be easier to set up a YotaCover (think of it like a widget-based lockscreen) and to switch between panels on the back display.
What do you guys think of the white version? Is this phone as intriguing as ever?

Moto 360 2nd Generation Passes Its Bluetooth Certs

May 13, 2015 - 1:23 PM - by dgstorm

A Motorola device with the BTMW03 model number recently passed its Bluetooth certification testing. Considering that the Moto 360 smartwatch held the model number BTMW01, the smart speculation is that this device is the next generation Moto 360.

If true, it does beg the question of what happened to the BTMW02. Perhaps it was a design that was scrapped during the development process, or maybe it will be a previously unnamed new device...
