We have seen a number of overly large smartphones come and go since Huawei debuted its Ascend Mate, and it would appear that the company is getting ready to introduce a successor soon. According to recent leaks, the Ascend Mate 2, as it’ll presumably be dubbed, will sport a 6.1-inch display similar to its predecessor but with a higher resolution — namely, 1080p. Internally, Huawei News reports that the next Ascend Mate is set to feature a 1.6GHz, quad-core Kirin910 chip alongside 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in storage and Android 4.2.2 (with Emotion UI, of course). Obviously, we won’t know the definite specs until the day the device is official, so don’t make any final judgements just yet. For now, treat yourself to some additional leaked pictures at the source link below.

The Roomba turned 11 years old this year, and after working extensively to make its autonomous vacuum cleaners smarter, iRobot is turning its attention to the muscle that does the cleaning. “We’re gonna get a patent for this,” product manager Max Makeev confidently tells me while explaining iRobot’s replacement for the age-old vacuum cleaner brush. The company calls the new equipment “AeroForce Extractors,” and they are the headline feature of the Roomba 880, the new top-of-the-line vacuum cleaner robot being announced today.
The two rotors look like traditional vacuum cleaner brushes — minus the bristles. Instead, grooves across the surface extract dirt and other debris from carpets and direct them into the vacuum’s air flow. iRobot…
Netflix is in talks with several US cable companies with the aim of making its video streaming app available on set-top boxes, according to The Wall Street Journal. The report says that Netflix’s discussions with US operators, including Comcast and Suddenlink, are at an early stage with no deal expected soon. Last month the UK’s Virgin Media became the first cable operator to offer Netflix to its customers; companies in the US have so far been reluctant to embrace streaming services, seeing the technology as broadly competitive with their traditional content offerings.
One reported sticking point in the negotiations is that Netflix is pushing for the cable companies to adopt its Open Connect content delivery network, which it argues…

The strongest known material in the world may have just been dethroned. Researchers from Rice University have calculated the properties of a little-studied form of carbon known as carbyne, and they’ve determined that it should have a “specific strength surpassing that of any other known material.” That includes graphene — the longstanding titleholder for strongest material — which the researchers say is only half as stiff as carbyne. Carbyne and graphene are actually alike in several ways: both come from carbon, and both are only a single atom thick.
Carbyne has previously been detected in interstellar dust and meteorites. And obtaining it on Earth hasn’t been easy: researchers have figured out how to chemically synthesize it, but…
Microsoft is funding a remake of the cult sci-fi TV series Blake’s 7, according to a report from the Financial Times. While the company is reportedly not committed to producing a full series, it would represent the latest push into original TV content for Microsoft, which is working with Steven Spielberg on a live-action adaptation of the Halo video games. Martin Campbell, director of James Bond films Goldeneye and Casino Royale, is said to be on board to direct.
Blake’s 7 was produced and broadcast by the BBC between 1978 and 1981. Created by Terry Nation, the man who dreamed up the concept for the Daleks, it “aimed to be a grittily realistic TV answer to Star Wars, only on Doctor Who‘s budget,” according to the BBC’s page for the…
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — just build it in a variety of sizes for profit. Duh!
That seems to be the thinking over at HTC, as MobileGeeks has surfaced some new information regarding HTC’s One line. According to the rumors, HTC will unveil a giant-sized version of the flagship HTC One with a 6-inch 1080p display, dubbed the One Max.
This follows some other recent rumors that point to a smaller version of the HTC One, as well, likely to be called the HTC One Mini. While the One Mini is expected to debut in July, based on rumors, MobileGeeks has the One Max pegged for September.
The guys also nailed down some specs, which include a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 chip, 2GB of RAM, a 3200mAh battery and either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. Plus, you can expect the phone to look quite a bit like its stylish predecessor the HTC One.
However, not much else is known about the device, though some have been speculating we may see some sort of stylus input on the device, considering it’s clearly aimed at competing with the Galaxy Note 3.
Samsung has dominated the phablet market with the Note series, which must be hard news for HTC as the Taiwanese phone maker failed to enchant the market with a 7-inch tablet called the Flyer, which offered text input via an $ 80 stylus. Unfortunately, the Flyer didn’t fly at all really.
Perhaps leveraging the One branding alongside new device sizes will yield better results.
Talk about trying to cover bases. Korean news outlet ETNews reports that Samsung’s Galaxy Note III isn’t going to be an only child when it launches later this year — instead, it will be joined by up to three siblings that will apparently debut at the same time.
The Google translation makes it bit tricky to discern what’s going on, but ETNews claims that while the four devices will feature the same applications, processors, and hardware platforms, they’ll sport different configurations of displays, cameras, and cases in a bid to appeal to certain sorts of computers. As the report goes, the most premium of these Note IIIs will feature a flexible display and a metal chassis, components that won’t appear in the more cost-conscious variants meant for different markets. What’s more, the size of the display will vary slightly between those different versions — they’ll reportedly range between 5.68 and 5.7 inches.
At this stage though, the Note III itself is still a wild card — techies and pundits expect Samsung to officially reveal the device at the IFA trade show in Berlin like it did with the Galaxy Note II. Earlier rumors also alleged that the Note III would have a 5.9-inch display (which doesn’t jibe with this new report) — either way the device will definitely strain some pockets, but thankfully not as much as Sony’s gargantuan 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra. Rounding out the purported spec list is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz and 3GB of RAM, which would propel the phone to the top of the heap in terms of horsepower (though LG’s Optimus G2 may be right up there with it).
As always, you should take all this with a hefty grain of salt, but this is nothing if not a well-worn strategy for Samsung — the company has made a habit of crafting what they imagine will be a popular new smartphone, and then pushing out spin-offs based on that original design meant to appeal to different niches. We saw it with the Galaxy S III and its little brother the S III Mini, and Samsung saw fit to expand the Galaxy S4 family in a big way with three curious variants revealed over the past few months. So far the Note series of phablets haven’t been subjected to Samsung’s desire to endlessly tinker, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see if that wasn’t the case for very much longer.
HTC seems to be encountering a bit of executive brain drain. Jason Gordon, the firm’s vice president of global communications, revealed on Twitter that he ended his nearly seven-year-long stint with the handset maker last Friday, but didn’t divulge why he left or what his future plans include. Now, The Verge is reporting that Chief Product Officer Kouji Kodera has also flown the coop, following a handful of other execs. According to the outlet’s sources, Chief Marketing Officer Ben Ho could be partly responsible for the changes since he’s said to be moving the outfit’s planning and strategy back to its Taipei HQ. With Peter Chou pinning poor marketing as what held the company back in 2012, it’s certainly possible things are being reeled back to home base — not unlike Nokia’s own centralization in recent years. We’ve reached out to HTC to confirm Kodera’s exit and just what the departures mean for the organization as a whole.
