The Samsung Galaxy S5, or whatever the next generation of Samsung Galaxy S smartphones will be called, could feature a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, according to a new report.
The Galaxy S5 (as we'll call it now) could be among the first Samsung devices to provide users with an improved camera sensor. The Galaxy Note 3 was once-rumored to offer the anti-shake technology, but recent chatter suggests that image stabilization won't be ready in time for the Note 3's September 4 debut.
With the supposed release date of Apple's supposed cheaper iPhone just around the corner, you can bet the Web will continue to fill up with supposed photos of the device.
This latest shot, picked up by French site NowhereElse, supposedly shows the 5C being tested near the assembly line, for capacity and general operation.
The site cautions, however, that these could actually be knockoffs. And, you know, this could also be a rather elaborate hoax pulled off with the help of an accommodating refrigerator. We thought you'd appreciate a look nevertheless.

Buyers of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 3 may be able to pick up the biggie phone in pink -- at least if they can wait several week before snagging it.
The phone/tablet, or "phablet," will initially launch during the first week of September in black and white variations, according to SamMobile. It will then debut in pink by late October, the site said Friday, citing information from an inside source.

A new Apple smartphone is right around the corner, leaving visions of a brightly colored and even a champagne or gold iPhone dancing in our heads.
Designer Federico Ciccarese takes it one step further. He's come up with a collection of imaginative concepts for the next generation of iProducts, including a curved iPhone with the integrated fingerprint scanner we've been hearing about, and a chunky iWatch that will make even the most self-assured hipsters question their image. … Read more

New details and early photos of the HTC Zara have apparently surfaced, painting a clearer picture of the rumored midrange Android smartphone.
The photos and specs, obtained by frequent tipster @evleaks, tell of a moderately designed midtier Android handset with cutting-edge software.

According to the source, the HTC Zara will have a … Read more
Rumors and discussion of a gold or champagne-colored iPhone are being mined at an ever-quickening pace as we get closer to an anticipated Apple event on September 10.
Over the weekend, iMore refined its own mock-up (above) of what a new, gold iPhone might look like. According to Ally Kazmucha, an editor for the site who also works for a company that anodizes colors onto iDevices as an after-market service, gold is among the easiest colors to bling out an iPhone. An easily gilded iPhone could be a flashy selling point for an iPhone 5S otherwise lacking in flash and major new innovations (depending on how much the rumored biometric sensors excite you).… Read more
