This is third story on the Motorola Shamu in three days, so we are beating a dead horse a bit here. However, we started the chain, so by heck are we going to finish it. It seems the pace is gathering around this device as yet another image of it has leaked, and we still do not even know exactly what this smartphone will be.
Yesterday we brought you news of the newest Nexus handset that is being built by Motorola. 9to5Google acquired plenty of details about the handset and even built a mock-up of the device from what they knew. Of course, it was not 100% whether the mock-up was the finished article, but today there seems to be some clearer confirmation.
Motorola has had a busy September with the roll out of the new Moto X and Moto G smartphones, while the Moto 360 smartwatch has also landed of course. However, the company is not slowing down with a new DROID device on the way and the collaboration with Google on the new Nexus smartphone. This device has been discussed a lot in recent times and is known as the Nexus 6 or Nexus X, depending on the source.
The big buzz around tomorrow's Apple iPhone 6 launch is that the company is going to roll out the much anticipated iWatch too. Many reports are now leading with the launch of the wearable being a certainty and not just probable. That's interesting of course, but little else is known about what would be Cupertino's first smartwatch, so we think a rumour roundup is in order.
We know plenty about Sony's upcoming Xperia Z3 flagship after several massive leaks revealed all but the finer details of the handset. However, the Xperia Z3 Compact, the smaller version of the device has managed to stay quiet with just a day to go until it is launched. Today though the Compact has showed up for some revealing images that are among the clearest leak shots we have ever seen.
The Moto X+1 has leaked enough times now that when the handset is actually launched in three days' time we will already know most of the things there is to know about it. However, a new detailed shot of the Moto X+1 from TKNews throws up plenty of fresh information about the Motorola flagship and even raises a few new questions.
Sony has been open about some its IFA line up, while other products from the company have outright leaked. Last week the company issued an image on its website that showed an unknown wearable, which led to speculation that a SmartWatch 3 would land at the Berlin based trade show later in the week. The seems to be the case as Sony will be launching a new version of its wearable, but will also be rolling out another smartwatch product.
Sony suffered a catastrophic leak last week when its upcoming Xperia Z3 smartphone flagship was entirely laid bare by a regulatory body. The specs, dimensions, and design of the device were completely exposed, leaving the company with an IFA launch event that would now be a little de ja vu like. However, perhaps the Japanese company has a few more surprises up its sleeve, so here?s the IFA rumour roundup for Sony.
The Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 830 is set to land at the IFA trade show in Berlin in one week?s time and will be a mid-range effort that is likely to appeal to those in emerging markets. Of course, those looking to get on the Windows Phone platform anywhere in the world will be able to get the Lumia 830 at a relatively decent price. Today the smartphone has shown up next to what is arguably the daddy of the Lumia range, the 930.
Motorola has a pretty busy end of the year ahead as the company could be releasing up to eight new smartphones to the market. You can even add a ninth to that as the American brand is teaming up with Verizon to launch the Moto Luge, a handset that will be launched on August 28th.
