Thanks to Aussie teen Sonny Dickson (known for leaking parts of unreleased iDevices), USwitch has taken photos of the alleged Apple iPhone 6 chassis. The site has discovered that the device s logo could light up, letting you know that you have notifications. According to the site, This time the logo is part of a plastic panel that’s inserted in a recessed part of the interior of the rear housing and peeks through the hole. Tellingly, the plastic part looks to have been made thin enough that light can easily shine through to alert you to updates and other important messages. Apple is expected to launch two versions of the iPhone 6. One will feature a 4.7-inch screen, while the other will sport a 5.5-inch screen. The Cupertino firm is expected to lift the lid on its next iPhone in September. Like the prospect of the iPhone 6 s rear logo lighting up whenever notifications are received?

Taiwan-based Taipei Times has revealed when to expect when to expect new smartphones from Taiwanese phone maker HTC. According to the report, the HTC Eye selfie phone is coming in the second half of the year, specifically in Q4 2014 (October to December). Another upcoming smartphone is the HTC Butterfly 2. According to the site, the smartphone has been certified in Japan and by Visa. Visa is said to be on board the smartphone for NFC payments. It didn t mention when exactly the device would be launched, but said it would be launched soon. Lastly, the HTC W8, HTC s first Windows Phone 8.1-powered handset is said to be launched this Q3 (July to September). Interested in any of these upcoming smartphones by HTC? Let us know through a comment on our Phones LTD Facebook page.

Responding to an HTC fan who asked when his international HTC One (M8) would get the Android 4.4.3 (KitKat) update on Twitter, Mo Versi, Vice President of Management at HTC said, Our target is late next week. Thanks. That conversation took place on the 18th last week, which means international unlocked versions of the handsets will get the update this week. The HTC One (M8) Google Play edition has already been updated to Android 4.4.4 (KitKat), so you must be wondering why Android 4.4.4 has not rolled out to the international HTC One (M8). There is a good reason for this. HTC has said that Android L (the latest version of Android) will be rolling out to their current flagship. So it s possible that the handset will go straight to Android L without being updated to Android 4.4.4. Phones LTD will let you know once the Android 4.4.3 (KitKat) update will be available for the international HTC One (M8) in the UK.

Sony has begun rolling out a firmware update to the Sony XPERIA Z2. The update will enhance voice call quality, improve performance, and more. Here are the list of improvements according to Sony: Enhanced voice call quality Improved touch function and performance Charging improved when battery is low Overall performance and stability improved And all of our latest bug fixes and improvements To know if the update is available for your XPERIA Z2, go to Settings > About phone > Build number / version. The update will updated the firmware version to version 17.1.2.A.0.314. Has this firmware update rolled out to your Sony XPERIA Z2? Let us know through a comment on our Phones LTD Facebook page.
