Upleaks shares Moto 360S and Moto 360L screen & lug sizes ahead of IFA

The new Moto 360 — scheduled to be unveiled in just a few days — has seen plenty of leaks over the last few weeks. And now Upleaks is getting into the nitty gritty. According to a pair of recent tweets, we now know the dimensions of both devices’ screens and lug widths…

Apparently, the Moto 360 small (which has appropriately picked up the Moto 360S moniker) sports a 1.37-inch display and a 42mm body, as well as lugs to fit a 20mm band. The large variant, in turn referred to as the Moto 360L, has a 1.55-inch display, a 46mm body, and a 22mm band size.

Also, following several new leaked stock images of both devices this morning, as well as the newly-rumored Moto 360 Sport, Upleaks has now shared images of the back of the device. As you can see above, the watch is labeled as “Moto 360,” sports a pedometer, is IP67 water resistant, is made of stainless steel, and has wireless charging.

The one on the left is assumably the Moto 360S, while the one on the right is the larger model (I’m assuming these aren’t to scale). Hopefully Motorola decides to simply offer two sizes and doesn’t come anywhere close to attaching silly letters to their names. The branding looks to simply be “Moto 360,” and I have faith that that’s what they (both) will be called.

Shatterproof Motorola ‘Bounce’ smartphone leaks, purportedly coming in December

The Moto X Style and Moto X Play only just recently launched last month, but it doesn’t look like Motorola is anywhere close to done for the year. Besides the fact that a slew of Moto 360 announcements are expected for this wek at IFA Berlin, it appears that the Lenovo-owned company is also preparing another smartphone for sometime later this year. It’s purportedly called the Motorola “Bounce,” and it sports a shatterproof screen, and specs very similar to that of the recent Moto X line.

As you can see above, the phone definitely looks a lot like the Moto X Play. In terms of its specs, the phone is also not far off from what the company is already offering. According to Upleaks, the phone packs a 5.43″ QHD display, the Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 processor, storage options at 32 and 64 GB, 3 GB of RAM, a 21-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, and a 3760mAh battery. Also, the phone is purportedly shatterproof, perhaps why it’s called “Bounce”?

While more details are sure to come, we’re not quite sure at this point to which regions the phone will be coming. That said, if Upleaks is correct — which he/she very often is — the phone will be launching sometime in December of this year. We’ll keep you updated as more details make their way out.

The Moto 360 is set to get a complete refresh at IFA later this week, and up to this point we’ve only seen what look to be two variants of the device. There’s apparently a smaller watch and a larger watch (reportedly called Moto 360S and Moto 360L, respectively). Now, well-known leakster Upleaks is giving us a look at a “Sport” variant of the smartwatch, featuring bright colors and some kind of fitness tracking software on board… expand full story

Both LG and Huawei Nexus phones rumored to share features, including USB Type-C, fingerprint sensor, more

Well-known leakster, Steve Hemmerstoffer has leaked further information regarding the upcoming purported Nexus devices. Using his OnLeaks account, he shared some detailed specifications an features of both the rumored smaller LG device and larger Huawei-made smartphone.

Information passed to Steve by his sources suggests that both phones will feature front-firing speakers, USB Type-C compatibility and a fingerprint sensor on the back. Although both are rumored to likely feature a metal chassis, the dimensions will be different. LG’s Nexus is purported to measure in at 9.8mm thick, 147mm tall and 73mm wide while the Huawei device is allegedly going to be 8.5mm thick and measure at around 12.5mm taller and 5mm wider than LG’s Pure Google phone.

The above image? That’s the latest Moto X 2015 leak, straight from the infamous Upleaks leakster himself (or herself?). Unlike most of Upleaks’ credible leaks, though, this one is a little bit on the small side as you can see. We have what looks to be a Moto X design with a metal band on the back, what might be an AT&T logo stamped on that metal strip, and what is assumably the company’s “Active Display” feature around front.

It’s nothing all too spectacular. But what makes this leak interesting is that it corroborates a much sketchier leak—so sketchy that we passed reporting on it—that has been making the rounds for the last few weeks. It comes from a guy by the name of TK Tech News, also known as Total Tech. He has a pretty bumpy history to say the least. But it looks like he might be right this time, as his leaks line up perfectly with what we’re now seeing from Upleaks.

So let’s take a look at what we might know about the next Moto X, given this new image… expand full story

Galaxy S6 Active gets closer as it passes through FCC following leak

Following yesterday’s leak of images of an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, Samsung’s ruggedized variant of its flagship Galaxy S line of smartphones, it looks like the device has received the FCC’s stamp of approval.

The model number SM-G890A was originally leaked by @upleaks and is highly suspected to be that of the Galaxy S6 Active, as AT&T’s Galaxy S5 Active had a model number of SM-G870A, and because @upleaks has a strong track record in the hardware-leaks department.

Samsung has offered a ruggedized variant to its flagship line of smartphones for several years now, and it looks like that will continue.
