Samsung had to do something, even with its millions of phones sold last year, 2014 was fiscally a bad year for the Korean giant. They tried to renew the Galaxy S series with updated specs, a fingerprint sensor, and even water resistance, but with all of that, the phone was still considered comparably a flop. So they went back to the drawing board and came back out with the S6 and the S6 Edge.
Early Sunday morning in Barcelona, HTC put all the rumors and leaks to rest as they announced their newest flagship, the HTC One M9. For the past few weeks we’ve received leak after leak about the device but now we have the official list of specs and features from this year’s One. Let’s dive in and take a look at what makes the M9 the One to get.
Mobile World Congress 2015 is so close I can almost taste the Samsung Six Appeal. With Samsung set to “unpack” its latest Galaxy Lineup, it’s no surprise we’re now seeing another time-honored live stream countdown clock. Just as with HTC, Samsung is planning to get everyone with an internet connection to tune in March 1st for the live stream of its 2015 Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona.
When it comes to mobile device production, Motorola has been doing wonders over the past two years. First they announced the coveted Moto X, G, and M, along with great devices like the Moto Maxx/Turbo and Nexus 6/X Turbo. Then late last year, they began reviving the original lineup with a 2nd generation version of the Moto X and G. And now, they’ve added a 2nd generation budget-friendly Moto E.
Last weekend, LG told the world of a new Android Wear watch that they were releasing soon, the LG Watch Urbane. The Urbane touts a classy, all-metal Wear device in which to rival the Moto 360. In the press release though, LG only included photos and nothing else. Now it seems they have added a video in an attempt to impress us even further.
It’s time to sing that sad song again: the one when HTC has its flagship device leaked well before its official announcement. This time we can give thanks to Twitter leaker @upleaks for the pre-release content. Somehow he/she got their hands on some HTC One M9 advertising media and graciously decided to share it with the world — or at least the Twitterverse.
According to a respected source of ours, Best Buy retailers have begun receiving the Nexus Player and are now selling them both in-store and online.
You’ll notice the online site has yet to be updated to reflect the new inventory but reports reveal the price of the Player to be the same $99.99 we’re used to seeing in the Play Store. As an added bonus (or waste of money) Best Buy is also giving customer’s a chance to purchase Best Buy’s Geek Squad warranty in case anything should go wrong.
Finally! After multiple absurd video teases, Samsung has given us a tease that reminds us there’s an actual phone and not some magical unicorn being unveiled in NYC on March 14th.
