NVIDIA has all but confirmed an HTC Nexus 9 tablet packing its 64-bit Tegra K1 processor by mentioning the device in a lawsuit filed against Qualcomm and Samsung. The chip maker expects the tablet to begin shipping during the third quarter of 2014, and some believe it could be announced at HTC’s “Double Exposure” event on October 9.

Samsung has published another teaser video entitled “Expect Note” that hopes to excite Galaxy Note fans ahead of the company’s Unpacked event at IFA next week, where it will announce the latest addition to its phablet family. The one-minute clip again hints at a focus on handwriting and S Pen stylus improvements.


If you’re planning to upgrade your smartphone later this year, then you may be looking to buy one powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 615 processor. Announced today on Chinese social networking site Weibo, it’s the company’s first octa-core chip, and it will appear in a number of devices launching in the third quarter.


Keeping the bezels as slim as possible is one of the simplest ways to make a smartphone that looks good, and that’s why the Sharp Aquos Crystal is quite possibly the most attractive handset you’ll see this year. It has hardly any bezels at all surrounding its 5-inch display, but its internal specifications aren’t quite as pretty.


64-bit processors are slowly but surely making their way into the Android ecosystem, but right now, they’re being saved for the latest and greatest flagships. HTC looks like it could be planning to buck that trend with a midrange Desire smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor.
