Here’s what the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may look like. While looking very similar to the front of the current Note 3 the back and sides look new.

The phone appears to retain the plastic back with leather-like texture but the sides look similar to the ones on the yet-unannounced Samsung Galaxy Alpha and appear metal.

There’s a plastic-like inlay in the side-frame that seems to add more water to the frame being metal rumors. The S Pen holster is etched into the side of the phone and there’s a microUSB 3.0 port at the bottom along with a speaker grille.

There’s what looks like a hear rate monitor alongside the camera lens on the back. The display of the Galaxy Note 4 should be 5.7″ once again but with an improved resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (QHD).

The retail box of the Galaxy Note 4 has also made an appearance. The design on the front looks similar to the one in the images above adding some more credibility to the leak.

The Galaxy Note 4 will be shown (as is customary with Samsung) this coming September 3 on the IFA floor and should make it to the shelves starting September 15.

The new BlackBerry Passport is edges closer to release!

BlackBerry-Passport-edges-closer-to-release

There’s a fair amount of anticipation among BlackBerry device enthusiasts for the upcoming BlackBerry Passport. We’ve already seen this device several times, and now the BlackBerry Passport has edged a step closer to release.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen officially revealed the Passport back in June and further to this we saw the phone pictured in a white color option. It has a rather unusual wide form factor that we weren’t too sure about at first, the phone looked more stylish than we’d initially thought.

Before the launch of a new smartphone to the market the device has to pass through various regulatory procedures, and last week a device thought to be the BlackBerry Passport appeared at the FCC. Now the phone has received GCF Certification too, so all is looking promising for the rumored September release.BlackBerry Passport edges closer to release b

The phone is thought to have a Snapdragon 800 processor, a square 4.5-inch display with resolution of 1440 x 1440, 3GB of RAM, and a 3450 mAh battery, and will release running BlackBerry 10.3, a very appealing lineup of specs. It also has a new-look physical QWERTY keyboard and it’s targeted at business users, although it could well appeal to non-enterprise users too.

There’s no BlackBerry Passport release date available yet, but it’s interesting to know that the FCC confidentiality agreement expires on September 12th, which perhaps gives us a hint. If you’re interested in this upcoming device you can already register your interest in it at BlackBerry here.

Spotted! This is the facelifted 2016 BMW 6-Series. Can you spot the updates?

The current-generation BMW 6-Series was all-new for the 2012 model year, so we’ll soon see the vehicle undergo its mid-cycle update. Today, we have the first spy shots of prototypes for the updated 6-Series coupe, which we expect to be revealed early next year, as a 2016 model.

Being a mid-cycle update, the changes to the car are minimal. However, we should see the changes appear across the 6-Series range, which means we should be seeing prototypes for updated versions of the 6-Series Convertible, 6-Series Gran Coupe and M6 models, too.

The camouflage gear on the prototypes suggests we’ll see new bumpers, new fender vents and revised lights. Changes are expected in the cabin as well, with the updated 6-Series likely to adopt BMW’s touchpad interface already found on some of the automaker’s vehicles.

It’s not clear yet what changes will occur under the hood, but it’s likely the current powertrain lineup will carry over with only minor tweaks. It’s also likely we’ll see some new electronic driver aids added to the car.
