Here’s a little noodle-scratcher for you fellow mobile hardware nerds to ponder this evening. This little Motorola Mobility beauty, brandishing the model number XT1058, recently passed through the FCC and left the customary paper trail in its wake.
Alright, maybe calling it a beauty is a bit of a stretch, but here’s the kicker: the rudimentary sketch included with the listing looks bears a striking resemblance to a slew of earlier leaked images that purportedly showed off Motorola’s secretive X Phone.
Consider the alignment of those three circular elements on the back — those bits match up rather nicely with the camera, LED flash, and Motorola logo/button as seen in images of an unreleased smarpthone originally circulated by the team at Tinhte.vn. Even the seemingly curved section along the top edge where the device’s headphone jack lives and the placement of what appears to be the sleep/wake button are spot on when compared to those leaked photos.
Having a hard time visualizing all that? Here’s a side by side view to give you a sense of the similarities:
Of course, this doesn’t bring us any closer to figuring out what the device is actually capable of — all the FCC’s listing reveals is that this thing sports radios for Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac and NFC. It could be that this is the first regulatory appearance of the so-called XFON, a device that noted gadget leaker @EvLeaks posted photos of earlier this month. After all, the XT1058 has been found to support AT&T’s particular LTE bands, and the XFON’s IMEI label clearly calls it out as an AT&T device.
At this point no one (save for the lucky chump who snapped those photos in the first place) can definitively say whether or not the XFON and this curious AT&T device are the same, but it’s distinctly possible. There are a few cosmetic similarities between the two — namely the Motorola logo stamped on the top left corner, the shape of the speaker grille, and the placement of the indicator LED and the front-facing camera. Don’t pay too much attention to the chunky chassis though, as it’s not uncommon for non-final hardware to undergo testing clad in patently ugly shells. You may recall that BlackBerry’s Dev Alpha and Beta devices lived in similarly unflattering boxes before the innards were officially unveiled at a series of simultaneous launch events back in January.
For all of the things that Google is expected to show off next week at its annual I/O developer conference (the refreshed Nexus 7, a unified chat system, redesigned Google Maps, etc.), a brand new smartphone wasn’t expected to be one of them. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the X Phone (or XFON, whatever) won’t make an appearance in San Francisco, but there has been a distinct lack of chatter that leads me to think that such a smartphone isn’t on the agenda. After all, Google’s been downright lousy at keeping things under wraps lately.
Our initial look at the BlackBerry R10 quickly suggested that the smartphone would be a budget alternative to the Q10, but it wasn’t clear just what we’d lose by penny-pinching. If DGtle is on the ball with its newly claimed specs, though, we won’t sacrifice as much as we thought. Along with offering more photos of the R10, the site believes that the handset will have the same 3.1-inch screen size and 2GB of RAM as its QWERTY sibling. Instead, the sacrifices would mostly affect media hounds: the R10 reportedly steps down to a 5-megapixel camera in addition to previously hinted cutbacks in storage (to 8GB) and battery (to 1,800mAh). We may learn the full truth soon enough — while there’s no guarantees anything will happen, next week’s BlackBerry Live conference is a prime opportunity for an unveiling.

Remember the M4? We’ve see glances of a spec sheet, but now we get to see how it’s going to look. Courtesy of evleaks, we can now tell it’s looking good. After the well-received One, the company looks to be sharing its style tips around — at a glance the M4 appears almost identical to the HTC flagship, although the camera sensor has been relocated to the center of the device and there’s a few less micro-drilled speaker holes. Running over the leaked specs, you can expect a smaller 4.3-inch screen at 720p resolution and possibly a cheaper build to the unibody beauty that leads HTC’s smartphone family. There’s likely to be a dual-core processor, LTE-capable radio and 16GB of storage. There’s better news too, with Ultrapixel-packed 4-megapixel camera sensor rumored to make its way into the middleweight phone, although initial leaks pointed to a 13-megapixel sensor. The phone is mooted to appear later this quarter, but we’re still waiting on official word (and that all-important price) before we get too excited.

After a testimonial was released too soon on another website exposing specs of Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-GF6, Digicam Details has actually leaked press images of the upcoming model in white. As noted prior to, the stylish-looking MFT will pack 16-megapixels, a brand-new Venus image engine, low light AF system, 4.2 fps burst speed, 1080-60i video, WiFi, NFC and approximately 25,600 ISO, among various other functions– if the leakages work out, obviously. We kept in mind earlier that the GF6 would begin at around $ 680 with a 14-42mm kit lens, and sources also declare the camera will be launched early tomorrow morning– though at this point, there’s very little left to really announce.

After going by Taiwan’s WiFi certification tests, Panasonic’s most current interchangeable lens camera has actually broken cover over at TechRadar. The leak has offered us the first look at the Lumix GF6′s full specification list, which consist of the same 16-megapixel sensor as the GX1, a brand-new Venus engine to assist with imaging performance, an electrostatic touchscreen and (in a first for ILCs) built-in NFC. Much better still, the team had some time to play with the camera, which has actually revealed itself nearly specifically 12 months after the last GF version. The camera apparently tries to straddle the space between compact point-and-shoots and the more technical world of mirrorless and DSLR shooters with a new mode dial ahead and a more receptive touchscreen. In addition to NFC, there’s even built-in WiFi to aid image sharing– although we can only share the original information with the magic of Google cache– take a peek at the source below. No word on a specific launch date in the leak, although the UK’s & pound; 449 price tag (which consists of a brand-new 14-42mm kit lens) need to translate to around $ 680 on the other side of the Atlantic.

Facebook Home Screenshot Leaks Suggest We’ll See An Image-Rich User interface With Sharing Close At Hand
Facebook is set to debut an unique Android item tomorrow, and now 9to5Google has a very early look at what we might see, courtesy of Evleaks. The screens depicted on renders of the supposed HTC First smartphone hardware being developed by the Taiwanese business. The images reveal tweaks to the fundamental Android UI that consist of simple access to condition updates, picture sharing and check-in functions, in addition to an emphasis on images.
The screens want to take a mostly minimalist technique to re-skinning the Android OS, with a widget just like the one available for Android house displays occupying a spot near the top of the app tray. A notifications screen utilizes what looks like it might be a Facebook cover image as its background, and seems to show a user ’ s FB profile pic as the open mechanism. There are Instagram, Messenger and Facebook sharing choices revealed in the built-in gallery app, and Evleaks says the entire point is to put Facebook features close at hand wherever possible in the OS itself, making it less required to delve into the specialized app to share or engage with content published to the social network.
The description and screens from this latest leakage match up with exactly what Josh stated was on the means from Facebook for this event last week. Overall, it appears like exactly what FB is doing is making a product that can make Android a much better funnel for prompting mobile individuals to post content and updates to its network, and to better keep up to date with new activity from their pals. If Facebook can effectively show that it can actually enhance the Android experience with deeper hooks, its Home item can become appealing to other OEMs too. As well as though it has actually developed an impressive user base upon its own, shipping on a range of Android hardware around the globe as an aspect essentially baked into the OS works out beyond typical individual acquisition techniques.
We ’ ll have live insurance coverage of the event tomorrow as it takes place, beginning at 10 AM PT, so you can tune in to discover whether what Facebook truly is presenting matches these early leaks as it takes place.

The HTC hardware that’s being prepped as the delivery mechanism for Facebook Home, which has lots more potential than the device itself, supposedly leaked in the image above. The render, tweeted by Evleaks, a consistent source of pre-release Android hardware info, doesn’t look like much: it’s destined to be a mid-range device, after all, according to early leaks.
The leak also suggests it’ll be called the HTC First, which sounds like a not-so-great play on the HTC One naming scheme. Previous info had it codenamed the HTC Myst, which at least brought to mind the popular point-and-click adventure game. The name ‘First’ at least evokes the idea that you’ll be the first of your friends to spot all the activity going down on Facebook, but again, don’t expect the hardware to account for any of the ‘wow’ factor of Thursday’s announcement at Facebook HQ.
What we’ve heard about the phone itself so far indicates a modest but capable performer, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 4.3-inch display capable of 720p HD resolution. It’s so yawn-inducing that if Facebook spends more than two minutes on hardware and specs on Thursday, I might actually nod off. But it’s an example of what Facebook can offer other OEMs, regardless of device specs: the angle of ‘it’ll even run on your broadly aimed pre-paid handsets’ is a good one for FB’s purposes of establishing a much wider, more entrenched mobile platform.
Even if the phone itself does look a little like a cheap iPhone knock-off.

An early build of Windows Blue, the next version of Windows, has leaked online on the same day that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer celebrates his 57th birthday. Build 9364, a partner version that was originally compiled on March 15th, has been made available on file sharing sites and includes some of the new changes that Microsoft is building into its significant Windows 8 update. Leaked screenshots posted at Winforum show that the company is bringing smaller tile arrangements and even a larger desktop one to its Start Screen, along with greater control over the color personalization options, and a whole lot more.

The Samsung Galaxy S IV is being announced later on today at an unique event, but we ’ ve already seen plenty of leaks regarding the flagship phone ’ s hardware, already there ’ s a new one (via SammyHub) that claims to depict the phone in the flesh, providing us a concept of exactly what it could possibly look like. If these leaks are accurate, the GSIV modifications bit from the previous generation and Galaxy Keep in mind II designs.
Uploaded to a Chinese online forum, it ’ s still extremely feasible that these are pictures of an additional yet-to-be released Samsung device, or simply sophisticated phonies, but if that ’ s what they are, then they ’ re very well done. The images reveal a Samsung-branded phone with a 5-inch show, a metal-look band surrounding the phone, and exactly what looks like somewhat textured front and back surfaces. The back is a glossy white, the slab has rounded rectangular edges, and the display wants to extend closer to the bezel than in any previous Samsung phone, implying it might manage not to have grown that much in regards to physical size in spite of the bigger display.
The leak fits with reports that the Galaxy S IV will retain its plastic outer case, and concurs with various other current reports about software and internal specifications, because it ’ s shown to be running Android 4.2.1, has a 1080p shows, runs 2GB of RAM and offers a 13-megapixel camera. The CPU numbering also recommends that it has a Samsung Exynos Octa chip on board as formerly reported.
Samsung has been understood to epically troll its fans, as it did last year with a disguised variation of the Galaxy S III which was covered in an external case that hid its real design. We could possibly be seeing that kind of thing once more, however this leak looks a lot more convincingly like a shipping device, not framed in any cover up. Regardless of whether it ’ s the genuine thing or not, we ’ ll figure out for sure exactly what Samsung ’ s latest flagship looks like on Thursday.
