Samsung could be planning to bring forward the unveiling of its much-improved Galaxy S6 by making a surprise appearance at CES 2015 in January. Sources familiar with the company’s plans in South Korea say a second device — a Galaxy S6 Edge — will also be shown off alongside it.

With a possible Galaxy S6 unveiling less than two months away, you can expect to start seeing a few leaks — and this one could well be one of the most revealing. It allegedly shows a prototype Galaxy S6 with super slim bezels down the side of its display, and a much-improved earpiece and front-facing camera layout.

Before you get too excited, however, we’re not completely convinced.

HTC’s One handsets have been some of the best Android-powered smartphones we’ve seen in recent years, but they certainly haven’t been without their flaws. The Taiwanese company is looking to address many of those with next year’s One M9, which will be better than its predecessors in almost every way, sources claim.

Nokia-X2

Nokia today announced its first Android-powered smartphone since it was acquired by Microsoft. It’s called the Nokia X2 and it’s a slightly improved version of the Nokia X that was announced at Mobile World Congress back in February. In addition to dual SIM card slots, it has a faster processor, more RAM, and a better camera.

Nokia’s smartphone business may be in Microsoft’s hands now, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to turn its back on Android. A Nokia X event scheduled for  June 24 suggests the company has a new Android-powered device on the way, just four months after it unveiled the original Nokia X family at Mobile World Congress.
