[Photos, Price & Specs] Samsung Officially announces Galaxy Note 5 with 4GB RAM and ultra-sleek body
Thankfully we now have someone that has bothered to collect phones with all existing retail screen technologies, and put them to a real life test. Users might be starting to get confused from all these "vibrant colors" and "stunning resolutions" everybody is promising, so have a look and maybe the video will help you decide which one is for you.
Hopefully the guy will find a way to review visibility under direct sunlight as well, for indoor test the results are not surprising. The two “Super” displays – SAMOLED and SLCD beat the mere AMOLED and LCD in all aspects that matter. The AMOLED's main drawback seems to be that you can't get them, but on the other hand, in the future, you will bend them.
As you Can see the HTc Windows phone 7 has No HTC Sense as HTC said before...Ma be no Yet!
Where HTC has seen fit to release a PR blast informing the world of what it already knew: the Desire and Nexus One are getting Super (duper) LCD displays to fill demand that Samsung AMOLED division cannot. HTC statement says nothing of the Droid Incredible, a close sibling to these 3.7 inch devices, but the global Nexus One and Desire are getting hooked up CEO Peter Chou has also helpfully explained that the visual experience on the new SLCD screens is comparable to AMOLED, but offers better battery performance. Color us curious to see and hear more. New Displays to be integrated into HTC Desire and Nexus One
Taoyuan, TAIWAN July 26, 2010 HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today introduced Super LCD display (SLCD) technology into a variety of HTC phones including the HTC Desire and global Nexus One later this summer. The SLCD display offers an exceptional natural balanced colour, clear contrast, broad viewing angles and improved power efficiency.
"HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays. The new SLCD display technology enables us to ramp up our production capabilities quickly to meet the high-demand" said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "The SLCD displays provide consumers with a comparable visual experience to HTC current 3.7 inch displays with some additional benefits including battery performance."
SLCD is the latest generation of LCD technology that offers improved performance from earlier LCD panels including approximately five times better power management. SLCDs also offer an enhanced viewing experience with wider viewing angles that are enabled by Sony's new VSPEC III™ technology.
Windows Phone 7 isn't far off now, by some estimates the launch is a mere three months away and you know you're getting close when the leaks start appearing. HTC have had one of their handsets make an unexpected appearance on the web and it's running Microsoft's latest OS. The handset, as yet unamed, is interesting, not just because it's running Windows Phone 7, but also for the fact that HTC's signature SENSE UI overlay is nowehere to be seen. It was just the other day that we were hearing that SENSE would be making an appearance on HTC's Windows Phone 7 handsets so either it simply hasn't been installed on this one yet or not every HTC Windows Phone 7 device will have it.
The handset itself is sporting a 3.7 inch SLCD screen, in keeping with HTC's decision to move away from AMOLED technology due to supply problems. The only other specifications mentioned are the incusion of the seemingly obligatory 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and an 8 MP camera. The handset is apparently ready to launch so we're assuming it won't be too long now before you see this thing officially.
There is another Android super-phone due to be launched - according to unconfirmed sources - that will give the iPhone 4 a run for its money.
The new handset from HTC will be called the Desire HD. A report from Mobile Choice believed that it could make an appearance in the mobile phone market at some point in October of this year. Sources claimed that the new Desire HD will be a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, running on the Android 2.2 operating system. It will proudly boast a large multi-touch 4.3-inch WVGA screen.
The camera has been significantly improved from the previous model and is rumoured to be 8MP. It will also come with 720-pixel HD video recording and will support Xvid video, as well as SRS surround sound and a high-quality digital file format.
The camera was reported to have automatic face-tracking software and the phone itself is expected to have 4GB of internal storage. As it will be running on Android 2.2, the phone will also support Flash player.
As far as the design of the new handset goes, the Desire HD will sport an aluminium unibody. This would certainly be in keeping with the company's popular series of Legend style phones.
Previously expected to be called the HTC Ace, the new phone has been tagged a "European version (presumably 3G-only) of the HTC EVO 4G". While the HTC camp has not produced an official statement as of yet, they are expected to give details on the phone's projected price and availability in the near future.
Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7 operating system is set to arrive on the market with a great deal of changes when compared to the current versions, one of which would be the limitation to the number of UI changes handset vendors can apply. This might prove an issue for some mobile phone makers out there, which made a name out of the customer user interfaces they thrown over stock mobile operating systems.
One of these companies would be HTC, though the company does not seem discouraged by the limitations imposed by Microsoft. The handset vendors custom UI, called HTC Sense, is expected to keep on living, even if Microsoft says that no modifications of the Windows Phone 7 interface are allowed. It seems that some sort of Sense would still be included in the company's future Windows Phone 7 devices, expected to arrive sometime in October.
"Microsoft has taken firmer control of the core experience (in Windows Phone 7), but we can still innovate," Drew Bamford, head of HTC's user experience design team, told Forbes. According to him, the forthcoming version of Sense would be quite different from the solution present on the company's current Windows Phone 6.5-based devices. The existing Sense was designed to integrate with most of the platform's core apps. "We won't be able to replace as much of the core Windows Phone experience, but we will augment it," Bamford says.
Previously, the company said that it would be able to add features into the mix, even if it won't be allowed to modify existing ones. Moreover, it seems that HTC would also plan a similar approach to the solution included in handsets running under the future version of Google's Android OS, supposedly dubbed Android 3.0. According to Bamford, Google too plans changes to the Android UI, but that won't be a problem.
"Google may focus more on improving the user interface on the stock Android (software) but I don't think they'll preclude manufacturer customization" he reportedly stated. The next flavor of Android should arrive with a larger number of polishes, but it seems that HTC would focus on improving the Sense UI too. All in all, whether it comes to Windows Phone 7 or Android 3.0 based handsets from HTC, users should benefit from an enhanced UI experience, that's for sure.
Concept 'HTC 1' is the phone we wish HTC would make : Designer Andrew Kim has cooked up a concept smartphone for HTC dubbed the "1" that makes the company's current offerings look, well... last generation. The device, built from a brass housing (coated in silver) eschews the phone-maker's recent crop of fairly standard looking mobile devices for something decidedly more sophisticated -- and cans the familiar Sense interface in the process. Not only is the shell of the phone rethought, the new UI (Sense mono) takes a cleaner,
More thoughtful, high-end approach as well, joining Synergy like functions (combined messaging) with a Helvetica heavy interface that looks streamlined and mature. Some notable features of the hardware include stereo speakers (located at the top and bottom of the phone), a kickstand which is actually the bottom portion of the casing, and the lofty concept of a built-in UV light which kills germs on the surface of the phone while you charge up. As far as concepts go, this is one of the finest we've seen, so hit the source link below and take a look at the full spread.
HTC has drawn the model its Sync application that had been placed late last week with support for sideloading of Google android applications on ATT's Aria, apparently simply by miscalculation. Click on "Application Installer" to install latest ROM version. You'll have to login by your HTC Account and register your phone too (by entering the IMEI on the back of the device box).
