Pantech to Launch 5-Inch “Bezel-Less” IM-A870 Soon

Pantech, the third largest mobile phone maker in South Korea, is reportedly gearing up for the release of a new smartphone that would help it better compete with Samsung and LG, namely the Pantech IM-A870.

The handset has already been spotted in leaked benchmarks a while ago, and has yet to be officially confirmed, but ETNews claims that it will be unveiled soon, with specs in line with those of Galaxy S4. The mobile phone is reportedly set to arrive on the market with a 5-inch touchscreen display on the front, and that it will be “bezel-less.”

Furthermore, the smartphone should include a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU when released, and is expected to become official as part of Pantech’s Vega R series. Running under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the Pantech IM-A870 might become official at the end of this month, UnwiredView reports. Stay tuned for more on the matter.

Huawei EDGE Flagship Smartphone Is Made Entirely of Aluminum

Chinese handset maker Huawei has been surprisingly successful in switching its focus on high-end devices. Well-known for its budget-friendly smartphones, Huawei launched some interesting Android phones in the last few years.

The folks at PhoneArena report that an unannounced Huawei flagship smartphone has just been spotted today at Nowhereelse and it looks amazing, to say the least. Dubbed Huawei EDGE, the smartphone features an aluminum body and is only 6.3mm thick. It sports a stunning 4.9-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) resolution. No word on the processor, but Huawei EDGE is expected to be equipped with 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal memory, and 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery.

It is also worth mentioning that it will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and will pack an impressive 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. There are no details on the superphone’s availability and pricing options, but we expect more info to emerge in the following weeks, so stay tuned.

Intel DZ87KL-75K, Intel's Last and Best Desktop Motherboard

Back in January, Intel decided to back out of the motherboard market. Then, in March, orders were cut by 80%.

The company doesn't plan to go quietly, however. In fact, it has prepared what is clearly the strongest desktop motherboard in its lineup to date: DZ87KL-75K. Based on the Haswell Z87 Lynx Point chipset, it has serious memory, expansion and processing potential.

All it takes to put it to good use is a bunch of DDR3 modules, one or two graphics cards, an Intel CPU (preferably one of those set for June release) and, of course, a big enough case to put everything in. The folks at VR-Zone have posted a photo of the product, and the full specs. We've included both in the gallery below, for your convenience.
