Ausdroid Investigates: HTC One (M9) Hima design all but confirmed, leaked straight from HTC

This photo, taken of a Sony Xperia Z3 (or perhaps a Z2) gives a lot more away than you think. This photo clearly shows the reflection of a phone with HTC branding on the rear, which looks suspiciously like the photos we posted the other day. It’s not a high quality photo, nor does it reveal much else about the[Read More…]

A wrap of Samsung Galaxy S6 rumours from around the web

I love this time of year; leading into MWC 2015 (or Mobile World Congress) rumours, rumours, rumours… and we’re trying to raise enough funds to send our Managing Editor, Dan Tyson over!

HTC One (M9) photos leak in France

As we approach MWC 2015, the leaks continue with HTC’s One (M9) stopping by for a quick photoshoot on its way somewhere else.

HTC is likely to reveal its 2015 flagship phone at MWC 2015, and that really isn’t much of a secret, with invites going around to press in the last week or so. However, some more details have come to light thanks to Bloomberg in the US, and it won’t just be a phone; HTC is rumoured to be unveiling its[Read More…]

Samsung’s upcoming round smartwatch might have wireless charging

We already know that Samsung is looking at a round smartwatch for launch at the upcoming MWC 2015 conference in March, and really it’s no surprise; the round form-factor of the Moto 360 has been extremely popular. LG G Watch R has capitalised on the same success, and it’s not surprising that Samsung is rounding out its Android Wear offerings[Read More…]

Samsung looking at touch-based fingerprint sensor for Galaxy S6

Samsung looking at touch-based fingerprint sensor for Galaxy S6

Smartphone security is one of those things; it’s necessary, because there’s so much personal information kept on our phones these days, but it’s a bugbear, because we unlock our phones so frequently that typing in PINs or patterns frequently is a pain in the neck. To make this a little easier, Samsung incorporated a fingerprint scanner in the Galaxy S5[Read More…]

Sony Xperia Z4 certified in Japan; MWC 2015 launch likely?

Sony Xperia Z4 certified in Japan; MWC 2015 launch likely?

Sony didn’t have a great deal to announce during CES 2015, leading to speculation (and really, the strong likelihood) that it would be announcing something at MWC 2015 instead. Many of us — myself included — are looking forward to what Sony has in store for this year, as the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact have been a big[Read More…]

Rumour pile: Samsung might be toning down TouchWiz for Galaxy S6

Rumour pile: Samsung might be toning down TouchWiz for Galaxy S6

TouchWiz is a bit like a lightning rod around Ausdroid parts, and around other places on the web, for negative comments. For all its utility and its gloss, it attracts a lot of hate (rather like HTC’s Sense did in days gone by). The feedback is loud and frequent, if not across the board; there are certainly a fair number[Read More…]

Galaxy S6 rumours coming thick and fast

Galaxy S6 rumours coming thick and fast

Around CES 2015 and MWC 2015 the phone rumours come thick and fast and Samsung, known to be something of a sieve with information that could (or should) be kept internal are often leading the charge with information getting out. First there was the yet to be confirmed rumour that Samsung are showing the Galaxy S6 to selected partners at[Read More…]
