Looks like apple will finally have to come clean on bendgate and acknowledge there is an issue in the design of the iPhone 6 plus.
Full disclosure I am currently using the model and haven’t had any issues with bending.
But that said between the two videos by unbox therapy this over the last week and now this video shot in an Apple Store it will be hard for them to deny the issue.
What are your thoughts? Is this blown out of proportion or is this a genuine issue that apple should address?
On another note Samsung seems to be having there own manufacturing issues with the note 4 and a gap in the design. More on that later today.
Here is the new bendgate video below
Here is a quick size comparison with the Galaxy note edge and the iPhone 6 plus
Info has been flying in the last few days. And just getting back to the US my email has been slammed.
To the point, here is what I’ve been told thus far.
Looks like the original design on the nexus was scrapped, a new phablet line called the S series aka Moto S is readying launch.
This looks to be a verizon exclusive with Att getting the device after 2 months.
Very high specs as rumored before. QHD display 5.85 aka 5.9 inch display
Snap dragon 805.
According to sources there were two devices slatted to be on the nexus launch list. A 5.2 inch and a 5.9 inch device.
As reported here an elsewhere Moto would scrap or repurpose one of these devices depending on initial Moto x sales.
What does this mean? Well while speculation that the Android Silver line is dead may be true, the first initial devices from Motorola and HTC have already been built, does this mean they will be nexus devices? NO. Not at all.
According to sources Google still may bring android silver to the table, or may repurpose these devices as new Google play edition devices. This is why we see NO NEXUS branding on the Moto S we have seen leaked lately that people are considering a nexus 6 aka nexus x.
The Nexus version of the Moto S will NOT have a Motorola logo in that big circle on the back. But unless something drastically changes will look like the device we have already seen leaked with minor changes.
What about the 5.2 nexus? According to three sources, all providing the same info, the droid turbo was a candidate for this device. But Moto sources do say it was happening but it wasn’t a Moto device.
Does that mean HTC was actually building a nexus phone and pulled back? Or was this LG? We are pushing very hard to get the info. And we will update as we know more. But for now we can say for certain there will be TWO Google phablets coming this fall. One a nexus and one the Moto S.
As for the nexus 6 name. According to a friend at Google they have aggressively gone after licensing for the name. Will it be Nexus X or Nexus 6 we will soon find out as were literally less than 2 weeks away.
A source sent us the images and info below.
That stated we have no way to know the authenticity of the information, so knowing that in advance here is the info we were sent today.
Seeing the new video from unbox therapy today I have to say, there is no doubt in my mind that this is a real issue that apple will need to address. For the company to state they have only had 10 devices come back bent is like One Plus claiming they didn’t have yellow banded displays.
See the video below for yourself and let me know what you think.
Another image supposedly of the moto shamu aka nexus x aka Moto s leaked earlier this evening.
After checking with sources and with the publications publishing the Moto logo up in the corner (not good for the Moto employee, most likely will cost them their job) a source was able to confirm the image is that of a Moto X developer handset, something interesting we were able to find out was that Motorola has been toying with the idea of a Google play edition Moto X.
Could this image be the shamu, yes it could, but according to our source they state the moto logo tracks back to a Google play Moto x that was on testing.
I will follow up with our sources on the Google play angle as we were earlier told that it was being killed off for android silver.
Maybe with android silver being on hold GPE is coming back.
Let us know your thoughts.
According to reliable sources within Verizon corporate, Sony is about to launch the Sony Xperia Z3 on the Big Red network in early October.
Further according to the source the verizon version of the Z3 will feature VoLTE and according to the source Wireless Charging will come on board as well. No other xperia device features wireless charging.
Stay tuned as we are waiting on images of this new device and will update as soon as it becomes available.
What do you think about Sony jumping into the U.S. Market again with Verizon Wireless
