alpha


After many rumors, we now have a real Proto-type of the Upcoming High-quality Premium Samsung Smartphone, the "Samsung Galaxy Alpha". Some High-resolution Live Photos leaked of the device showing all its glory. Samsung made a big jump from plastic to High-quality Aluminum, with Glass front and leather back.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha packs the same exact display as the Galaxy S3 in size and resolution (not QHD!), as you can see in the photo below, it's smaller than the current Galaxy S5. The Alpha won't have a MicroSD slot but it will have all the current features presented on the S5 including the fingerprint sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is expected to launch on Mid-August, its availability may be limited (Korea) as it has the "LTE-A" badge and a Korean ROM. We are hoping that Samsung release this device worldwide to taste that sweet Metal with some Samsung love. Stay tuned for more details!

Samsung Premium Headphone


Samsung moves into the high-end headphones scene with the release of their Level headphones. The lineup consists of 3 models of headphones over-ear, on-ear and in-ear.

 

Samsung Premium In

 

Level-Over is the top of the crop, costing $349.99, the Bluetooth over-ear headset seems to offer all the bells and whistles Sammy could come up with. The headphones sport a touch panel on the side, which allows the user to quickly skip between songs, control volume, play/pause, and activate S-Voice, all through swiping gestures. The set supports quick NFC pairing to your smartphone. Other mentioned features are the Active Noise Cancellation - an EQ circuit, which cancels all outside noise, while preserving a clean sound, Samsung says; and a Volume Monitor, which takes care to not overexpose your ears to high volumes. Of course, how good these two are at their job remains to be seen.

Level-On is the mid-tier offering and is a wired set, which Samsung touts to be elegant, compact, simplistic, and ergonomic, though it carries none of the features of its higher-tier sibling. That is somewhat understandable, since this headset's priced at $179.99, which is almost a 50% price drop, still we would've preferred to see it sport at least the touch-panel.

 

Level-In, as you might have already guessed by the overly "intricate" naming scheme, is the in-ear offering at $149.99. Not much to say about these, besides their use of an independent 3-way speaker system and a generous amount of in-ear tip sizes, which we believe should go without saying, given the price point.

S4

 

The plain, 'vanilla' Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini still hasn't been on the receiving end of the update to Android 4.4 KitKat. This despite the fact that the S4 Mini Black Edition started getting the new software in mid-June.

 

And today it's the dual-SIM version's turn. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Duos is now in the process of being updated to what is still the latest version of Android.

 

Unfortunately though, the rollout is limited to Russia for now. So if you bought your Galaxy S4 Mini Duos from there, you should get a notification about the new Android version any day now. After applying the update, you'll be on software build I9192XXUCNG2.

Galaxy Alpha

 

A new Report about a Full-Metal body Galaxy Smartphone line came from the South Korean site ETnews.com. The Report doesn't have much details but cites industry insiders who claim that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha will be unveiled on August 13th, which is only a month away.

 

The Alpha line is intended to compete with the Apple iPhone by swapping Samsung's usual faux leather back for a metal chassis. Various purported images show an all-metal back, while others show a metal frame with plastic panels.

 

Galaxy Alpha

 

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha phone will be powered by the new Snapdragon 805 chipset used in the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and presumably in the Samsung G901 Galaxy F, which may or may not be the first of the Galaxy Alpha series.

Exynos ModAP

 

The Samsung-made Exynos chipset has only one problem hen comes to connectivity, it doesn't support 4G LTE and Samsung had to release two versions of the same device (one with Exynos chipset and the other with Snapdragon chipset with LTE support). Today, Samsung announced Exybos ModAP which is the first Exynos Chipset with LTE Cat.4 integrated. ModAP stands from "Modem and Application Processor", underlining the departure of previous setups where the modem was a separate chip.

 

The Exynos ModAP is built on a 28nm HKMG process. The processor supports Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP), which allows all eight of its cores to work simultaneously (4x Cortex-A15 + 4x Cortex-A7).

The modem also uses the more is better than one approach and supports carrier aggregation, meaning it bonds together multiple channels to achieve the LTE Cat. 4 prescribed speeds of 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink. The modem supports both FDD and TDD, popular internationally and in China respectively. 2G and 3G technologies are supported as well, including TD-SCDMA.

 

The chipset can record 2160p video at 30fps and has a relatively speedy 6.4GB/s channel RAM. The GPU was not mentioned but a recent Mali model would be a solid guess.
