Sony has not been doing everything in making sure that it would catch up to its rivals in the mobile market, particularly in the Android world.
While the Xperia Z4 is a promising handset in its own right, people seem to be looking for more – something that can make it stand out against the Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, LG G4, and the few high-end mobile flagships from other Chinese manufacturers.
Instead of answering that question and feeling that need, the Japanese manufacturer has silently launched a new "compact" device. more >>

With the Apple iPhone 6 selling like hotcakes, Apple may be considering an update to their recent release. Initially called the iPhone 6s, the updated model of the iPhone 6 is rumored to have some major upgrades not only in terms of specifications but also in its design.
Details about the newest model of the iPhone were leaked via a research note from KGI Securities, which AppleInsider reportedly got a copy of. One notable upgrade is the possibility of having a rose gold variant of the phone. It is unclear whether this means that the phone will be made of actual rose gold, much like the luxury edition of the Apple Watch, or whether the phone will only come with material that mimics the color of rose gold. Adding this color variant will expand the choices of color available to potential buyers.
Although the note failed to provide some details, it also said that Apple is looking at a new design using different types of materials for the casing. This is apparently being done to address the bending issues that came out with the iPhone 6 Plus model. There is also a possibility that scratch-resistant sapphire covers may be utilized. more >>
