We may have seen a lot of flagship smartphones in MWC 2014 last month but those are definitely not the only things to look forward to this year. On top of the upcoming Oppo Find 7, All New HTC One and such, another device that should be announced this year is the LG G3, the next flagship smartphone from the Korean company. Even before the unveiling of the LG G Pro 2 in MWC 2014, rumors of the G3 have already surfaced and the latest set of rumors include a 2K display and a water- and dust-resistant body.
If all the rumors and leaks we’ve been seeing about the HTC M8 or All New HTC One isn’t enough to convince you that what we’ve been seeing is the real deal, here are more leaks for the upcoming primary flagship smartphone from HTC. Yesterday, the device appeared in a very lengthy photo session, showing off the device in all angles and if that’s not enough, the latest leak is another video that further shows off the device as well as a microSD card slot we saw in the previous video leak.
Calling all iPhone and iPad users, it’s time to give your device a much needed software update as Apple as just released iOS 7.1, the update we’ve all been waiting for since last September. As promised, the update will address the black/white screen of death encountered by a lot of iPhone users, have CarPlay support for compatible vehicles, bug fixes, and a lot more.
The Oppo Find 7 is definitely shaping out to be one of the hottest smartphone to look out for this year, we’ve been seeing quite a number of leaks and even teasers from the company itself, showing off some of the amazing features such as a 2K display and a whopping 50MP rear camera. Oppo has already confirmed that there will be two variants of the Find 7, we’ve been seeing the outline of the device in a couple of teasers and it looks like now, you can get a full view of what the Find 7 looks like as a whole.
The picture was posted on Red Dot Design Award website recently and was picked up by a tech website, Liliputing. The pictures have already been removed of course, but nothing that gets posted on the internet remains as a secret and it looks like the Find 7 looks pretty much like the Find 5 with a pretty square design and similar button layouts on the side. There is also a nice LED notification panel at the bottom of the phone.
The Oppo Find 7 will come in two different variants – one will sport a super shart 5.5” 2K resolution while the other will be equipped with a Full HD display instead. Rumors are now saying that the 2K variant will be the higher end one that features a 50MP rear camera while the other might sport less powerful hardware under its 1080p hood.
The device is scheduled to be launched on 19 March 2014 in Beijing, China, so stay tuned as we keep you updated with the latest news.
Another week another teaser for the upcoming All New HTC One. HTC has just released its third video teaser for its upcoming flagship smartphone of 2014, this time focusing on the camera and yes you guessed it, it looks like they will stick with the good old Ultrapixel camera but hopefully with a rumored second camera at the back, it will deliver a much, much better picture than last year’s flagship.

I think LG has made it to the top of my list of weirdest ad ever made with its latest G Flex ad that shows of how the company’s curved smartphone is “the most human phone ever”. Thanks to a curved design that is arched from top to bottom, the G Flex boasts the most natural usage when talking on the phone, but it’s so natural, LG decided to show it off with this new ad.
