New Details on Motorola Ghost (X Phone)

Motorola appears to be moving closer to the official unveiling of its new series of smartphones, which should hit the market under the X Phone tag, and some more info on one of them has emerged online.

The handset, supposedly none other than the Motorola Ghost smartphone spotted online a while ago, has reemerged recently, and some additional details on its specs list are now available, courtesy of  9to5google. Rumor has it that Motorola might plan on packing the device with 32GB of internal memory, as well as with 2GB of RAM, but that there will be no microSD memory card slot included in the package. 

The Android 4.2-based smartphone is also said to include a 4.3-inch or a 4.7-inch touchscreen display, a small bezel, and support for 4G LTE networks. According to some of the previous reports on the matter, the Motorola Ghost might land on shelves in the US at multiple wireless carriers.

Chinese mobile phone maker Lenovo is gearing up for the launch of a new large smartphone running under Google’s Android operating system, and has already started to tease the phone online.

Known at the moment as Lenovo P780, the mobile phone is expected to arrive on shelves with a 5-inch touchscreen display on the front, as well as with a 4000mAh battery inside. Furthermore, the new mobile phone is said to sport super sensitive touch technology, as well as a 9.9mm thin body, Engadget reports.  The device is also said to sport dual-SIM capabilities, along with a quad-core MediaTek chipset, and to have been set to launch sometime in the second half of this month.

No official info on the smartphone has been provided as of now, and we should take the details above with a grain of salt until a formal announcement is made, but stay tuned for more.

Samsung Preparing Tizen-Based GT-I8800/GT-I8805 Smartphones

South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics is expected to bring to the market Tizen-based devices before the end of this year, and some possible info on the first such devices from the company has emerged online.

Two smartphones packing Tizen OS on top have been spotted online, namely the GT-I8800 and GT-I8805, and both of them are said to arrive on shelves with support for 4G LTE connectivity packed inside. No official info on these handsets has been spotted, but Ameblo stumbled upon the following code that points at the existence of these smartphones:

"Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Tizen 2.1; en-us; SAMSUNG GT-I8800) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/2.1.0 Mobile"

Samsung has already confirmed plans to make its first Tizen smartphones official before the end of this year, but did not provide additional details on the matter.

MSI Big Bang Z87 XPower Mainboard

Last month, NVIDIA offered the first teaser of its upcoming flagship motherboard based on the Z87 Lynx Point chipset.

There was even a video of the product, though it didn't really reveal much. It wouldn't have been a teaser if it had. I hoped the next time I saw the motherboard would be in a true press release, but that's not the case.  Instead, MSI has revealed a second teaser, though not in video form. It's just a photo this time, posted on Facebook.

It shows the all-black paint job and the X logo embedded on both sides of one of the three heatsinks covering the Military Class IV components (Super Ferrite Chokes, Black Solid state capacitors, 16 VRM power phases). MSI Big Bang Z87 XPower is really shaping up as one of the best Haswell-ready motherboards yet.
