Sony will be acquiring an Israeli chip maker called Altair Semiconductor for $212 million, the handset maker announced in an official press release this week. Altair Semiconductor is known for its advancements with LTE (Long Term Evolution) modems. They’ve been working on making LTE chips that are faster, with lower power consumption, all while at a lower cost. This possibly means that Sony can deploy LTE technology to markets that may not have it as of yet. The acquisition is slated to be all wrapped up early by February 2016, just a few weeks away.

The Samsung Galaxy S7’s release is approaching quickly and with that comes the leaks of several aspects of the device. GsmArena today has received images of both the front panel and camera module of the upcoming flagship. These images were snagged from the product line, most likely the production ready version, but a developer model based upon markings.
The LG G4 was one of the best phones of 2015, filled with drool-worthy specs, excluding a metal build. With the 2016 rendition of the LG G5, rumors are pointing to a change in that. A new report from DroidLife claims that a source sent images of an LG prototype, most likely being that of the LG G5. The proposed G5 is in a protective casing in the images below, concealing any branding, however.
