Huawei unveils Ascend D Quad, D Quad XL and D1 at MWC

Huawei has released 3 new Mobile Phones at Mobile World Congress in Spain, the Ascend D Quad, the D Quad XL which are powered by their own K3V2 quad-core cpu and the D1 is powered by a dual core CPU. From what I can tell from the coverage coming from Spain is that the Ascend D Quad and D Quad XL seem to only be differentiated by the battery size 1800 vs 2500mAh The Ascend D Quad specs : Quad Core K3V2 1.5GHz CPU 4.5" 720P HD Display @ 330PPI 8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera and 1.3Mp front-facing camera Dolby Digital 5.1 surround...

HTC One X leaked on HTC’s own website ahead of MWC announcement

Greek website FullGSM managed to scrape these photos of the upcoming HTC One X when HTC accidentally leaked them onto their own website a little too early. The One X is going to be announced tomorrow at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and just might be the phone of the show, seeing as Samsung is a no-show with its Galaxy S II successor. The specs list is one to behold and starts a new era of high-end Android smartphones. 4.7-inch Super LCD2 1280x720 Display (w/ Gorilla Glass) 1.5GHz Tegra 3 (4-PLUS-1) CPU 32GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, DLNA 8MP...

Samsung shows off their new 32nm quad-core Exynos CPU ahead of Mobile World Congress

Just because Samsung aren't going to be showing off their quad-core Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress doesn't mean quad-core isn't going to be mentioned by Samsung at all. At the International Solid-State Circuits Conference Samsung whipped out the 32nm Exynos Quad-Core CPU to show that it can play the 4x core game. Unwired View writes.. The new Exynos comes paired with the latest version of Samsung’s own graphics chip, which has 4 pixel processors and 1 geometry engine with 128 KB L2 cache. The graphics support OpenGL ES 2.0 and can generate up to 57 MPolygons/s. Which I believe... Continue reading

HTC Australia counting down the days until Monday, lots to be announced at MWC

HTC Australia are counting down the days until Monday on their Facebook page. Why? Well it's the start of Mobile World Congress on Monday! HTC have had at least 3 phones leaked in the past few weeks -- HTC One X (Endeavor), HTC One S (Ville) and HTC One V -- which are all expected to be officially announced. What we're most excited about is the fact it's HTC Australia counting down, which normally means that whatever is going to be announced is going to make its way to Australia at some point in time. Let's hope... Continue reading

ASUS teases Full HD Transformer Prime for MWC

ASUS has just released a teaser video with the line "twice the detail, twice the fun" which leads us to believe it's referring to the Transformer Prime with a Full HD (well, even better, 1920x1200) display. There's little else to go on with the video besides the mention of an announcement at Mobile World Congress on Monday. We can't wait to see it, and to see if it'll make its way to Australia at a more forgiving price than the original Transformer Prime. Continue reading

Motorola Atrix 3 leaks; internals include quad-core CPU, 3300mAh battery, 10MP camera

It was only at CES last year that Motorola unveiled the original Motorola Atrix, and come Mobile World Congress they'll be unveiling the third iteration of the device -- at least according to new leaks. The image above is the latest photo of the Atrix 3, and as it says, there will be an NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU powering the device and a huge 3300mAh battery to keep it charged up. There will be a 10MP with dual LEDs to snap all your photos as well. There's very little else know about the device, except that it... Continue reading

LG X3 gets benchmarked, kicks butt with its quad-core CPU

Remember the LG X3? It's the device LG are going to launch at Mobile World Congress, and it just got a little bit more real this morning with the release of screenshots showing some benchmark results in Quadrant. MoDaCo was lucky enough to score the exclusive shots which give the X3 a score of 4412 on Quadrant -- more than double the score of the Galaxy Nexus, which has half the amount of cores. Specs for the LG X3 include: 4.7" HD 720x1280 screenTegra 3 Quad core processor (1.5GHz on single core, 1.4GHz when on 2-4 cores) +... Continue reading

HTC Endeavor and HTC Ville to launch as the HTC One X and HTC One S?

Pocket Now and Slashgear are reporting that the two HTC devices floating around the internet at the moment -- HTC Endeavor and HTC Ville -- are expected to launch at Mobile World Congress as the HTC One X and HTC One S respectively. It makes sense as HTC are no strangers to sticking with a name and then adding variations to it such as the HTC Sensation range which included the Sensation XE and Senastion XL. The One X (Endeavor) will feature NVIDIA's Quad-Core Tegra 3 CPU which will be clocked at a whopping 1.5GHz and will make use... Continue reading

Leaked HTC Endeavor RUU provides us with Sense UI 4.0 screen shots

A leaked RUU (ROM Update Utility) for the HTC Endeavor leaked onto the internetz, and with it came a flurry of screenshots and images showing off the new UI features of Sense UI 4.0 -- HTC's take on Ice Cream Sandwich. While most Android savvy users are against Sense UI, it appears as though HTC are taking a step back and toning it down to act a little bit more like stock Android (check out the video of the HTC Ville). From the looks of the images, HTC are bringing in more themes and have scrapped their... Continue reading

Details of the HTC Endeavor leak, 4.7-inch 720p display, Tegra 3 CPU, Ice Cream Sandwich

Paul from Modaco has received information from a source in-the-know that there's a HTC device floating around going by the codename 'Endeavor' and it's expected to launch at Mobile World Congress later this month. The specs line up nicely with previous rumours of the HTC Edge: 4.7-inch 1280x720 (HD -- 312ppi) Display NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU @ 1.5Ghz Android 4.0.3 w/ Sense UI 8MP 1080p Rear Camera / 1.3MP Face Shooter Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 HSPA+ 850/900/(1700|1900)/2100Mhz 1GB RAM Beats Audio Below is a render of the HTC Edge which we're assuming is also known as the Endeavor. If the launch date is correct, we'll be... Continue reading

Render of LG’s first Quad-Core phone ‘X3′ leaks out, could be unveiled at MWC

Just when we thought LG had finally left the Android race, here comes the LG X3 render to bring them back into the game. The X3 is supposedly going to be a Quad-Core device with a 4.7-inch display with the now obligatory 1280x720 resolution (312ppi). NVIDIA's Tegra 3 Quad-Core chip will be the powerhouse inside the device, which is apparently going to be less than 9mm in thickness even with a 2000mAh battery packed away inside it. Pocket Now are reporting an 8MP camera on the back (shooting HD of couse) and a 1.3MP camera on the front.... Continue reading

HTC might unveil their first quad-core phone on February 26, could be the HTC Edge

It looks like we might be seeing the previously leaked HTC Edge launched around this time next month, the 26th of February according to GSM Arena who are reporting they've received an invite to HTC's pre-MWC launch event. HTC normally announce their devices a day or two before MWC to build up hype for the actual event where people can check it out on the show floor. With the recent render leaks of the HTC Edge and HTC Ville, it's more than likely that both of these phone are going to be announced. The one to be... Continue reading

ASUS have no plans for a 3G Transformer Prime

It seems ASUS are partly shooting themselves in the foot with the Transformer Prime as they've said there will be no 3G version as they don't see the need. This news comes as ASUS choose not to sell the Transformer Prime on its own in Australia, instead choosing to bundle it with the keyboard dock for a premium price. Considering this is the first Android tablet running on NVIDIA's Quad-Core Tegra 3 CPU and Android 4.0, you would think ASUS would make every variant possible to suit a larger market and sell more units. Evidently they're not... Continue reading
