  • iphone 5s accessories leaked pics news rumors


    The biggest story these days on the mobile technology front has got to be the news and speculation surrounding Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S. And Pure Mobile's been keeping up with all the talk.


    Here, we're rounding up the most important news, leaks and speculation, from iPhone 5S accessories to leaked pics and a prospected release date. Read on to get the scoop on what to expect from the next iteration of the iPhone, with details about hardware, software and gadgets and accessories.


    Though recent speculation from the likes of International Digital Times hints that the upcoming iPhone 5S may only hit the market at the end of August or in early September, some accessories makers already seem to be gearing up for it.

    While accessories maker Spigen is already encouraging its website visitors to "stay up to date on the iPhone 5S case and screen protector collection as it arrives," they're apparently not the only company already at work on iPhone 5S accessories.


    Meanwhile, as Phones Review reported, accessories maker Zagg has already started promoting their line of iPhone 5S screen protectors. Though as the Phones Review article notes, without a confirmed release date for the iPhone 5S, Zagg may be "jumping the gun a little."


    But enough about the accessories. What about the device itself? Well, June 24, most leading tech sites were running headlines about some leaked pictures of what may be an iPhone 5S prototype. In particular, the image of what is supposedly the backend of the new iPhone has been making the rounds.

    Shown next to an iPhone 5, the picture reveals that the prototype boasts an A7 chip and, in the words of one Gizmodo writer "pack a new model number."


    BGR says the differences seen between the two iPhone models in the leaked image point to "an extensive internal overhaul." Moreover, there's been speculation that the iPhone 5S will include a fingerprint scanner. And yet another leaked picture shows a dual-LED flash with two different colored LED lights next to the camera.

    Though these newly leaked images are certainly the biggest revelations we've had yet concerning the iPhone 5S, they may not be enough to truly satisfy those eagerly anticipating the arrival of the newest iPhone.


    But you can be sure that Pure Mobile will be closely following all the developments and news. And we'll be keeping you up to date on any word about iPhone 5S accessories, specs, or conclusive release date.

  • Samsung announcement of the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices Samsung announcement for the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices

     


    For the past couple of months now at Pure Mobile, Samsung's Galaxy S4 has been the big talk. We've practically been eating, sleeping and breathing Galaxy S4 cases and accessories since the device's launch. And, as of this month, Galaxy S4 sales had started to close in on those of the iPhone 5.


    But we can hardly expect this to be the last of Samsung's successes. And the company announced today that it will be holding an upcoming roadshow event, the "Premiere 2013" in London next month.


    The teaser poster for the June 20th event mentions Galaxy and ATIV devices, so we're pretty sure the company will be unveiling its latest Android and Windows devices. As for the teaser pics on the poster, which don't exactly spell things out, Engadget thinks they could relate to a a tablet or phone, laptop, and camera:


    "The remaining tiles show partial shots of three mysterious devices -- possibly a tablet or phone, a convertible laptop (à la Sony VAIO Duo 11) and a camera (maybe the rumored Galaxy S 4 Zoom?)"


    Oh, and speaking of rumors...before its official unveiling, Samsung was touting the Galaxy S4 as "the next big thing." But a recent leak could suggest that that Galaxy S4's successor could actually be the next little thing.


    According to BGR, which cites various sources, "Samsung is working on half a dozen different versions of its new flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, including a more manageable variant called the Galaxy S4 mini."


    And the fact that the device  – presumably a smaller-scale version of the Galaxy S4  – actually briefly showed up online in Samsung's official app catalogue for the UK indicates that this is more than mere rumor. Indeed, as BGR put it, "the phone has now been confirmed by Samsung, albeit accidentally."


    So while we at Pure Mobile will probably still be obsessing over the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 accessories for the next month or so, we've got a feeling that, come the London event, we'll have an all new lineup of Samsung smartphones, tablets and other devices to sweep us off our feet.

  • Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch leaked picture Leaked screen shot of what is allegedly Samsung's answer to Apple's iWatch

     


    With smear campaigns and even legal drama, Apple and Samsung have been at war for some time now. And with a new Samsung phone accessory in development, we know exactly where the next battle will be fought.


    According to Bloomberg, the company is working on a smart watch that could rival the iWatch, a new Apple accessory that's also reportedly in development. And the potential for cut-throat competition between the two companies is already a hot topic, with the Wall Street Journal calling this their "next battleground" and 9to5Mac quipping "the smart watch race is on."


    Samsung Smart Watch leaked screen shot One of the alleged screen shots of Samsung's upcoming smart watch hints at features and a Galaxy name

     


    Samsung has actually confirmed they're working on this fun gadget, but they haven't really revealed anything about it. Still, there's speculation that it may be marketed as part of Samsung's Galaxy line. "One would think that a product like this would fall under the Galaxy naming scheme and be called something like the “Galaxy Watch,” writes MobileSyrup.


    Meanwhile, leaked screen shots obtained by Slashgear that puportedly show the device back that assumption up, with a view of the watch face displaying the name Samsung Galaxy Altius.


    Even though we don't know much yet about the upcoming device, if we judge by existing smart watches, like the Pebble or Sony's SmartWatch, we can make a few assumptions.


    Samsung's smart watch will most likely be a bluetooth-enabled accessory that allows you to view updates and notifications from your phone, and will probably also include features like an actual clock, a calendar and music player.


    Beyond that, it's hard to say. But since the smart watch market is looking a lot like an arms race these days, it's likely that this next Samsung phone accessory surpasses the Samsung-compatible Sony SmartWatch in terms of features. In any case, it'll have to, if Samsung wants to stand a chance in its next bout with Apple.

  • BlackBerry 10 Z10 L Series all touch phone BlackBerry's new BB10 phones, among them L-Series, were heavily leaked this week

     


    So, there's still two weeks to go until BlackBerry officially unveils their two new BB10 phones, but after this week, is there really anything to show that we haven't already seen? Both the all-touch L-Series phone – also known as the Z10 – and their Qwerty/touch X10 popped up in leaks all over the place, leaving little to the imagination before the big reveal.


    For starters, there was what Gizmodo called "the clearest shots yet of BlackBerry's great Qwerty hope," referring of course to the X10. Though there's only so much a picture can say about a device, the N-Series phone looks like a slicker, more modern update to the "conservative simplicity" that RIM's always excelled at, says Gizmodo.

    As for the L-Series, we've already seen our fair share of pictures of the new all-touch BlackBerry phone, but this week revealed a couple of juicy details that were new to us at least.


    A pretty thorough video demonstration of the Z10 and its features was posted online by German site TelekomPresse, and you can view it at the end of this post.


    But just in case you were still hungry for hard facts, a leaked Rogers training manual – slides of which were secured by Techradar – has been making the rounds, revealing the actual specs behind BlackBerry's first all-touch phone.


    If the leak is to be trusted, the L-Series will sport a 4.2" high-def screen (1200 x 768 pixels), an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. It features 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, and will be powered by a Snapdragon processor.


    Now, all that remains is to learn the release date for the new BlackBerry phones, which we should find out at RIM's BB10 event, scheduled for January 30.

  • A Vietnamese site has leaked the clearest images and most detailed video of BlackBerry's latest smartphone

     


    A couple of days ago, we posted a teaser image released by RIM of the upcoming BlackBerry 10 all-touch device on Pure Mobile's Canadian blog. At the time, it seemed exciting, the first real glimpse of the L-Series, not just some bogus leak. And it confirmed that images of the device leaked previously weren't really the real deal.


    But what a difference two days make. Thanks to super detailed pictures and a lengthy video leaked by Vietnamese site Tinhte.ve, the RIM-sanctioned teaser pic of the L-Series now looks "lame" by comparison, to quote TechCrunch.


    While the teaser pic had left us wanting more, the Tihnte.ve leak gave us pretty much a full showing of BlackBerry newest, and perhaps sexiest, smartphone. Of course, that's assuming the handset shown off in their 5-minute video and high-res pics is the final design, but we have very good reason to believe that's the case.


    The device shown in the leak sports the same textured back as the the L-Series does in RIM's official teaser pic

     


    First off, it's got the same mesh-textured backing we saw in the L-Series the teaser pic, and which was lacking from BlackBerry devices in previous leaks. Meanwhile, says TechCrunch, if it isn't the final design, it's at least "very recent," since the handset is equipped with "the recently-renamed BlackBerry World App."


    So what's the scoop? We couldn't help but notice – and these feelings were confirmed by Gizmodo – that the device looks a heck of a lot like the iPhone 5 in some shots, though it's perhaps a little bit slimmer, proportionally. Though its rounded rectangular shape is also not unlike the BlackBerry London pics we started seeing over a year ago.


    But it's also not far off from the BlackBerry Dev Alpha B smartphone handed out to developers last year, in that the placement of its front-facing camera, front speaker, microphone, and BlackBerry logo are more or less the same. With the removable back panel off, it reveals an 1,800 mAh battery, and microUSB, micro-HDMI, and microSD slots.


    Opinions on BlackBerry's latest and greatest, though perhaps premature, are certainly abundant, ranging from ravingly enthusiastic to underwhelmed. "This is going to blow the iPhone out of the water," "Go home Blackberry, you're drunk and dead in the water, it's an Android and iOS world now," are just a sampling of the responses found in the comments for the Tinhte video.


    Likewise, tech sites seem to differ. "It looks kind of wonderful," spouted Gizmodo, while TechCrunch was resigned to saying "Overall, the device doesn’t look too bad."


    For our part, we're waiting to get more details on the real guts of the device, and to see how it works with the new BB10 OS when BlackBerry officially unveils it on January 30. But in the meantime, we're giving it the benefit of the doubt and hoping it'll be the best smartphone BlackBerry's made in years, or at least good enough to pull RIM out of its recent troubles.

  • First off, apologies for the blurriness of the above photo. But hey, with leaks about upcoming and yet-to-be-revealed technology, we'll take what we can get.


    What you're looking at here may just be the Qwerty keypad for the BlackBerry 10 N-Series Qwerty/touch device. The image leaked from Chinese tech site iiBerry, and was picked up by CrackBerry and Mobile Syrup both. And despite its really poor quality, it's actually the best shot we've seen yet of (a part of) BlackBerry's newest Qwerty device.


    So what can we take away from the shot? Well, the keypad does certainly have that signature BlackBerry look, though, as CrackBerry points out, the curved chrome frets of the BlackBerry Bold line have been replaced with straight ones.


    The BlackBerry Bold 9900's curved chrome frets appear straight on the keypad in the leaked photo

     


    RIM has already announced that they'll be officially unveiling their new devices – which include the N-Series Qwerty/touch device as well as an L-Series all-touch phone – January 30. So we'll only be able to confirm then what the new BB10 Qwerty phone will look like.


    In the meantime, we wait and pray that some third-party BlackBerry accessories manufacturer lets another pic of the new BB10 devices leak out.

  • If the only thing stopping you from getting an iPhone 5 is the prospect of getting one through one of Apple's carriers, then there's some good news for you.


    That's because factory unlocked versions of the device are on the way, reports a post on AppleInsider. What's more, the pricing for the unlocked iPhone 5 is out too.


    Don't quite buy it? Well, how's this for a reliable source – the news comes from Apple itself.


    Fair enough, Apple probably didn't make the revelation intentionally. AppleInsider admits that, while the devices aren't automatically found anywhere on Apple's website, "a query for 'iPhone 5 factory unlocked' in the Apple.com search bar reveals 'Apple Store Results,'" with listed prices ranging from $649 for the 16GB model to $749 for the 32GB version, and $849 for the 64GB iPhone 5.


    AppleInsider's search query on Apple's website revealed prices for factory unlocked devices

     


    The search results aren't likely to be an error, says AppleInsider, citing as evidence a report from September that "showed an Online Apple Store iPhone comparison page that revealed the prices of unlocked versions bound for the U.S. and Canada."


    Those prices, writes AppleInsider, are "in line" with those found on Apple's website. And though similar prices for unlocked iPhone 5s was already available from certain carriers, the news here is "that Apple could soon be joining those ranks for such off-contract sales," writes Mashable.


    As for when we can expect unlocked versions of the iPhone 5 to be available directly through Apple, Mashable and AppleInsider alike cite a theory that says they're likely to be up for grabs once the supply of iPhone 5s starts to catch up with the demand.

  • Image from Samsung's save the date for the October 24 kick-off to their Galaxy Note II world tour

     


    Wait Samsung, don't tell us. You may have revealed the last "next big thing" back in October, but is the "next next big thing" a larger Galaxy Note device? According to the rumor mill of late, the answer is yes.


    Within the same week that Samsung boasted of selling 3 million Galaxy Note II devices, a new DLNA certification (first reported on by SamMobile) shows that the company may already have some successors in the works.


    The certification lists two new Samsung-made devices – GT-N5100 and the GT-N5110 – that SamMobile says are sized between 7 and 9 inches. And if you're in doubt as to the fact that the devices listed will in fact be Galaxy Note variants, AndroidGuy points out that the certifications for all “previous Note products start with GT-N.”



    If there's any truth to SamMobile's report, it may be that Samsung is looking to fill the gap between their 5.5-inch and 10.1-inch Note models.


    As, for why Samsung would want to release a 7-inch Galaxy Note when they've already got the 7.7-inch Galaxy Tab, it may just be that the company sees the Note line, with its stylus pens, as distinct from the rest of their mobile devices.


    "Samsung clearly sees this market as separate from its mainstream phone line," writes Mobile Syrup, "and the two won’t necessarily cannibalize sales from either one."

  • Carphone Warehouse leaked, well, everything about the next Nexus smartphone

     


    As writer Ernest Hamlin Abbott once put it, "rumors are not news; but they sometimes foreshadow news."


    And, boy, have the rumors ever been stacking up concerning Google's next Nexus device, even though Google's expected to be saving any official news about it until their October 29 event.


    Still, between the speculation that the new Android phone will be LG-made, the pictures, and even a premature review, we've already learned quite a bit about the upcoming Nexus 4.


    And today, a new leak from retailer Carphone Warehouse revealed pretty much everything else, right down to the LG phone's specs, price and expected release date.


    Advertising pre-orders for the phone, Carphone Warehouse has listed a price of £389.95. And their description boasts that the new smartphone has a 4.7" LCD display, and "the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet," Android OS 4.2 Jelly Bean, as well as some new features:


    "Search gets smarter with Google Now. You ask. Google answers, instantly, and with all the detail you want... Stay in touch with Gesture Typing, a faster way of typing that lets you spell words by dragging your finger across the screen from letter to letter."


    Meanwhile, Carphone Warehouse sets October 30 as the start date for delivery, just one day after Google's event. Though, after this last and possibly most comprehensive leak, there isn't much Google could tell us about their latest smartphone that we don't already know.

  • With the iPad Mini expected to launch soon, the question is not will people want it, but how much will they pay

     


    It won't be a few weeks until Apple actually holds its iPad Mini event. But the October 23 date can't come quick enough for some who are already speculating about all the details Apple is expected to reveal later this month.


    One of the big revelations we're all waiting for regarding the new mini tablet is how much it will cost. And today rumors that sound at least possible (if not probable) began to circulate about the iPad Mini's price.


    One of the leaks, first reported by German blog Schimanke, reportedly comes from the inventory of Media Market, a European electronics retailer, and sets the iPad Mini's starting price at around €249 (about $322 U.S.) That includes the Value-Added Tax that applies in Europe or on European goods sold in North America.


    German blog Schimanke leaked the reported price of the new iPad Mini: starting at €249

     


    Meanwhile, TechCrunch, which reported on the Schimanke leak, has had the good sense to ask whether this estimate is even remotely possible.


    After having looked into the newest iPad's bill of materials (BOM) cost – which essentially summarizes the total cost of each of the tablet's major components – TechCrunch found that Schimanke's estimate is, in fact, within the realm of possibility.


    The Bill of Materials cost for the newest iPad

     


    Factoring in "Apple’s famed commitment to high profit margins," TechCrunch writes that "the iPad Mini reportedly starts at $316.05 for BOM and manufacturing cost per unit, and is sold for $499, giving a rough margin of $182.95."


    As for the the top of the line devices, "the margin jumps considerably, with the $829 64GB Wi-Fi+LTE iPad apparently carrying a manufacturing cost of $408.70, parts included, for a difference of $420.30."


    We won't really know for sure until Apple officially announces the new device's cost, as it's expected to do at the October 23 event, but it seems likely that it'll be in the neighborhood that the rumors so far have described.
