Earlier today it was reported that Google would finally unveil the Nexus 6 for all to see tomorrow, October 15th. Thanks a variety of leaks, including one of our own, we already know almost everything about it except for pricing and carrier availability. This evening, however, AT&T appears to have inadvertently outed the device on its website, revealing some of that information.

Google’s upcoming “Nexus 6” (some claim it will be called “Nexus X” because of Blade Runner) has long been rumored, and there have been many leaked specifications and details rolling out for quite some time now. But there hasn’t been much solid information about the device quite yet, leaving many who have passed on the iPhone 6 and OnePlus One hopelessly waiting to know if the wait will be worth it. For those of you who fall into this category, you’re in luck.

We can now corroborate previous rumors that its screen size nudges it out of smartphone territory, and closer to the likes of the recent push for phablet devices. If any smartphone is really a phablet, this is it—shipping with a behemoth screen that’s a massive 5.92-inches diagonally, with the device’s body being just a bit larger than that. 9to5Google has also learned that, as for the overall appearance of the device, it’s basically going to be a scaled up 2nd generation Moto X with some minor tweaks to make the larger size easier to use.

Samsung posts second ‘Ready to note’ teaser video ahead of next week’s launch of Galaxy Note 4

Samsung Mobile has posted to its YouTube channel a second teaser video for the Galaxy Note 4, due to be launched on 3rd September at IFA in Berlin, with satellite events in New York and Beijing. Both videos highlight the S Pen that sets it apart from other tablets.

The first video focused on the concept of saving handwriting from being a lost art, while this new one showcases some of the other uses of the pen, from annotating maps through playing games, editing photos to typing on a keyboard.

If an early posting on an Indonesian retail site is genuine, the Note 4 will have a 5.7-inch 1440×2560 Super AMOLED display, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 (with a second version substituting an Exynos 5433) and 4GB of RAM. A separate report says that it will have a 16MP camera with a capacitive touch shutter button.

We’ll find out for sure in nine days on 3rd September.

We heard last month that there was a new Nexus phablet on the way, code-named Shamu. The device is said to have a 5.9-inch 1440×2560 screen and a fingerprint sensor, and to be made by Motorola rather than LG – and seemed a good candidate for the Nexus 6.

PhoneArena is now citing anonymous Motorola sources as saying that the device will instead be launched as the Nexus X, to avoid trademark issues over the Nexus-6 androids in the Philip K Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep – later turned into the cult movie Blade Runner …  expand full story

LG G3 ‘Prime’ with LTE-A capabilities gets pictured in Korean advertisement

The LG G3 ‘Prime’ has been widely rumored, and now a Korean mall advertisement seems to all but confirm its existence (via GforGames). Following the announcement of the standard G3, Samsung came out intending to trump LG with the introduction of its slightly more powerful Snapdragon 805-powered LTE-A variant of the Galaxy S5. And since then, rumors have swirled that LG has a ‘Prime’ version of the G3 up its sleeve.

Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition first impressions and comparisons (Video)

A couple of weeks ago, Samsung announced a very interesting revision of its popular Galaxy S5 smartphone. Exclusively launching in Korea, Samsung debuted the Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition. From its name, you’d probably pass it up as being a special device, but the specifications are far superior than the original Galaxy S5 that was released back in April. Take a look at the overview and comparison video below…
