Will there be a 5 inch iPhone 6C?

iphone-6s-5-inchA refresh is on the way for the iPhone and as usual there js little in the way of official details. Expected are two variants with 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays. However there are reports of an iPhone 6c being in the works, and more recently a suggested rumour emerged that the 6c will be built by Foxconn with a 4-inch display.

However, a more recent rumours of a 5-inch model being manufactured by Foxconn are making the rounds. According to the Foxconn insider the 5-incher will apparently rock an 8 MP camera, a dual-LED flash and powered by an A9 processor. A sketch depicting the alleged 5-inch iPhone 6s model has popped up from the Foxconn insider who was not able to provide a photo of the device due to Apples security measures.

Could Apple be planning four devices?

Might the UK have an Electric Highway?

55d2850e04d0aElectric Motorways that allow electric cars to charge whilst on the move are to be tested in the UK this year. The 18-month scheme, announced by Highways England, will “test how the technology would work safely and effectively on the country’s motorways and major A roads. The concept of wirelessly charging technology under the road is used to power buses in Korea. However, these tests in Britain are said to be the first of their kind. 

The potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting possibilities. The government is already committing £500 million over the next five years to keep Britain at the forefront of this technology, which will help boost jobs and growth in the sector. As this study shows, we continue to explore options on how to improve journeys and make low-emission vehicles accessible to families and businesses.

Transport Minister Andrew Jones

If successful, the new roads will mean that electric cars could be driven for long distances without the need to stop and charge their batteries. Although, it’ll require Highways England to install plug-in charging points every 20 miles on the motorway network, something which they’ve committed to doing. The days of autonomous electric cars could be here sooner rather than later.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

CaptureDroidlife have successfully captured, what is now know as, Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s boot screen in the Youtube video below. A lovely animated intro sequence is either an impressive fake or a lucky early leak. The animation does manage to capture Google’s colourful and smooth nature and helps this writer lean toward the authentic option.

The name Android 6.0 Marshmallow was revealed yesterday outside Google HQ and Tweeted by @davey_burke after a few days of teasing.

We have around two months to go before the new hardware and software are launched so check back for most up to date information.

LG Google Nexus 5 2015 5.2” Stand Holder Shockproof

l2Pzo3LAliexpress.com has listed a Shockproof Stand Holder for the new LG Google Nexus 5 2015 edition, including a device in the image not unlike that we say recently. I wold imagine the listing will probably disappear quite quickly so I have persevered the images from the listing in this post, you know, for science. Case manufacturers get the dimensions from Google a little early so they can design and manufacture their cases and be ready for the phone launch. This is how we knew the dimensions and the position of each component a few weeks ago.
