Entry-level HTC Golf press image leaks


Though a 5MP smear of blue has been the only proof of its existence up to this point, the entry-level HTC Golf looks like it will fit right in with the manufacturer’s 2012 lineup. A newly leaked press shot of the device shows us a handset that takes some of its design cues from the recently launched One line and transplants them onto what should launch as the next entry to the popular Wildfire series.

PhoneArena reports that the picture shows the Samsung GT-i9300.

The problem is, Samsung’s numbering scheme has gotten a bit sketchy with recent … [Read more...]

  In advance of Mobile World Congress the first image of what is said to be the LG Optimus 3D 2 has made its way online. A point of emphasis with the new design is the device’s thinness.
