Apple is coming up against Google with the unreleased iPad Mini 3 and Nexus 9. Both companies have not released any official statements about the devices' hardware but there are already multiple speculations about what kind of specs each will be holding.
The Nexus 9 – which is rumored to be made by HTC – will have an 8.9-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a display resolution of 2048 x 1440 pixels. The Nexus 9 is seemingly moving away from the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and will instead have the Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset, with a quad-core 2.5GHz processor and a ULP GeForce Kepler GPU.
It will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage variants and will have 2GB of RAM. It will also have microSD card support of up to 128GB and an 8-megapixel camera capable of full HD video recording at 30 frames-per-second. It's also rumored to run on Google's newest mobile OS, Android L (Android 5.0). more >>
Google's next full-size tablet, the Nexus 9, is rumored for a release sometime this October, or if not then before the year ends. There are also indications that the tablet could be manufactured by HTC this time and is speculated to stand up against the Apple iPad Air.
With HTC in the helm of construction, the Nexus 9 could be following the design principles seen in its flagship smartphone range, the One M7 and the One M8. If so, the Nexus 9 should be seeing a full aluminum body construction, much like the materials in which the iPads and the iPhones are made.
As for the specs, nothing is official yet as neither Google nor HTC has made any announcements, but there are rumored features floating around different websites. more >>
Loyal fans of Bethesda's Fallout game series has, up to now, been left hanging about the release of the purported sequel of the RPG. Devoid of any official announcements or information regarding its stage of development, some reports are already speculating that there isn't a Fallout 4 at all.
However, a report from Cyberland indicated that the Fallout 4 release date might have already been announced by Bethesda at the EGX 2014. Formerly called as the Eurogamer Expo, this event was recently held in London last Sept. 25 to 28.
The event did come and go, but no rumblings were heard concerning the game. more >>
It's only been a few weeks since the announcement and the release of the iPhone 6 and people are already on the lookout for news about Apple's next flagship, the iPhone 7. While it is unlikely that there would be details on the iPhone 7 out on the airwaves for a year or so, there are already thoughts on what features would make the iPhone 7 a better phone.
Apple has stuck with the Corning Gorilla Glass with their iPhones and iPads for some time now, and now that they've used Sapphire Glass for the Apple Watch and the covering for the iPhone 6's camera, seeing it on the iPhone 7 wouldn't be surprising. Sapphire Glass is stronger and more scratch resistant than the Gorilla Glass and it's already being used on Motorola's Moto 360 smartwatch.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus did get larger screens but their resolutions didn't quite matchup with today's market standards. Samsung is already delving into the QHD (2560 x 1440) screen resolutions after LG's G3 smartphone made its debut and it would make sense for Apple to make the same move into higher resolutions as well. more >>
Apple and Samsung have always been battling it out when it came to smartphones, phablets, and tablets and this year, Apple released the new iPhone 6. While Samsung is still to release its Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6, the iPhone 6 has nobody to compare against but with the present Samsung flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5.
The iPhone 6 is Apple's first move into the big screen size market but Samsung has already been in that area for quite some time. First off, the iPhone 6's screen size is 4.7-inches, which is significantly bigger than the iPhone 5's 4-inch screen. It's a Retina display phone with 1334 x 750 resolution.
The Galaxy S5, on the other hand, has a 5.1-inch screen size with a full HD resolution (1920 x 1080). While the S5 is already an old phone in today's standards, the full HD resolution screen tops against the Retina display of the iPhone 6. more >>
Super Smash Bros. Brawl 4, an upcoming fighting game from Nintendo is scheduled to be released for the 3DS on Oct. 3 and for the Wii U this holiday. While the game was already released in Japan Sept. 13, updates of new features, maps and game modes have been continuously emerging on the Internet.
The game's Director Masahiro Sakurai, released the latest feature to grace the 3DS version of the game: alternating tracks and stage selection in the Boxing Ring.
"For the 3DS version, you can select alternate tracks for stages by holding down the R Button while you select a stage – the brown drop shadow that frames the stage image when you gold down the R Button indicates the alternative track is active," Sakurai wrote. more >>
