Galaxy S6 edge

 

Samsung faced lots of difficulties in the production process of its latest Galaxy S6 Edge which lead to the opening of another edge display factory ahead of schedule, a whole new factory dedicated to produce Curved displays for Samsung devices. The Korean giant is now looking to expand its Edge-screened range.

 

According to a report from the Korean media, Samsung is working on a New Edge device, which will be released before the the Galaxy Note Edge's successor, which also known as Note 5 Edge - Project Zen. So far it has been assumed that the sequel to the company's pioneering curved screen device is set to be announced this fall, alongside a vanilla Galaxy Note 5.

 

Edge

 

Project Zen is tipped to come with a dual-edge display around the 5.5-inch mark, S Pen and an inferior chipset. Then the inevitable question must be asked, if there will be enough room between it and the Galaxy S6 edge for yet another smartphone with such a screen.

Android M

 

Google already announced the Android M major release. However, this is just a developer preview which has very few UI changes and some other unstable new features that still needs lots of testing and developing. Google made a schedule for Android M releases during the I/O event.

 

Android M


According to the official schedule (pictured above), Google is going to release 3 Developer Previews in the next 3 months. The Android M Official final release will be during the end of the 3rd Quarter (Q3,2015), still no exact date confirmed yet. By the final release Android "M" will be given a Name like "K = KitKat , L = Lollipop"... it might be Muffins, M&M's, Milkshake... etc.

HTC

 

Since launching the flagship One M9 smartphone earlier this year, HTC has been rather quiet. But according to company chairperson and CEO Cher Wang, there's more to come from the Taiwan-based firm later on in 2015, with a slew of new smartphones heading to the consumer market.

 

There's no doubt that the HTC One M9 is a great smartphone. The M9 ticks most of the boxes one would expect of a flagship device at this point. But with Samsung, the market-leader in terms of top-tier Droids, having really thrown down the gauntlet with its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, the One M9 has drawn some flak for being perhaps too similar to last year's One M8.

 

Given past release cycles, it's seemingly unlikely that HTC will drop another handset this year to equal or best the One M9 or the almost-identical One M9+. But according to DigiTimes, the company's CEO spoke of a "new series" of smartphones in the pipeline during a meeting of shareholders, although whether this will entail as few scattered handsets or an entirely new product line remains to be seen.

 

Last week, the HTC 850C was leaked, with the accompanying report indicating that it will be of the Desire variety and aimed towards the Chinese market. Given the inclusion of dual SIM slots, it would seem less than likely that the 850C will reach the Western market, and the same could be said of the Desire-esque HTC WF5W, which also emerged a short while ago. With a super-svelte design, though, the WF5W looks promising in terms of a new direction that HTC could take regarding the design of its smartphones, and as such, it'll be interesting to learn of what the company has up its sleeve.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 7, you will have to return it not only because it could catch fire any moment, but also because it will be remotely shutdown by the company soon. The device was actually a great smartphone, so it might not be easy to replace it; however, here are a few options that you may consider.


Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge



It has a slightly smaller (5.5-inch) Edge display, the same brilliant cameras, water-resistance rating and internals as the Note 7 does. The only things missing are the iris scanner and the S-Pen. Besides, Samsung will also give you $100 in bill credit if you choose the S7 Edge or any other Samsung device in exchange for the Note 7.


Samsung Galaxy Note 5



If you can live with a SoC that's more than a year old, but still performs very well, the Galaxy Note 5 is a great choice. It offers most of the S-Pen functionalities that came with the Note 7, on a flat panel.


Google pixel XL



There is nothing missing in the Pixel XL, which features a 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with a Quad High Definition resolution and the Snapdragon 821 chip which is even faster than the SD 820 which the Note 7 is packing. The 12-mp rear snapper is arguably even better than the latest Samsung sensors, and coupled with Google Assistant and other continuous software updates by Google, this could be one of the best phones to go for right now.


Galaxy Prime

 

Amazingly, The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is Now Available for pre-order in the UK by Mobile4Fun.com, the phone is not officially released yet. The Galaxy Alpha has a high price tag to match its metallic body £549. The listing doesn't indicate when the phone will become available, but it does give some specs about the device. However, after view hours, the website took the page down.

 

It should come with an Octa-core Exynos 5 processor, a 4.7" 1280x720 Super AMOLED display, and on the software side, Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It'll pack the same fingerprint scanner that the Samsung Galaxy S5 does too, along with a 12mp primary camera and a 2.1MP selfie unit. It also supports LTE data speeds, Bluetooth 4.0, and 32GB of internal storage, sans SD card slot.

The Galaxy Alpha is supposed to hit retailers on September 13th, and the official announcement will on September,3rd.

After months of rumors, reports and speculations, the day is finally here (almost!). The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are going to be unveiled officially tomorrow and as we stand just a few hours from that moment, let's take a look at what we know about the two devices up until this point.

Galaxy S8+


6.2-inch Super AMOLED QHD+ borderless dual curved display
Exynos 8895 SoC in the international variant and Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in the US variant
4GB of RAM, with a possibility of a 6GB RAM version in China
64GB/128GB/256GB internal storage with expandable memory card slot

We admit that these specs, along with all the leaked images and videos do not leave much for the imagination, but then again, they are only rumors. We will know what's what in just a day's time though. Samsung is still sure to have a few surprises in store for us; We only hope that they are good ones!

While the Galaxy S8 is without a doubt a pinnacle of achievement for Samsung Mobiles, it isn't without its flaws. However, I think one of the biggest flaws in the Galaxy S8 is not the fingerprint scanner but the way they managed the whole affair with Bixby. After investing so much into marketing their AI assistant and giving the phone a dedicated hardware button which just simply cannot be remapped to anything else, the S8 and S8+ were launched with a voice assistant that had no voice capabilities! Unfortunately, as per the Korea Herald, if you own a Galaxy S8/S8+ in the US or in any of the other English speaking nations around the world, you will likely not be seeing Bixby anytime soon.


In order to understand what exactly went wrong here, take a note of the following points.


• Samsung did not have sufficient Big Data available to them at that time to enable the voice functions of Bixby


• This happened because Samsung adopted Big Data integration much later than its competition


• There's a huge language barrier in between Samsung's English speaking developers and Korean developers which is making communication difficult


If you are wondering when you can expect Bixby voice communication to finally make its appearance on your S8 or S8+, the time is expected to be somewhere during the fourth quarter of the year.

Google lenses

 

Google announced before that it is developing a Smart Contact Lens prototype containing a glucose sensor. The US-based company had earlier said that this lens won't be available to the general public for at-least next five years, it now looks like the wearable device may hit the market before 2019.

 

This was revealed in a recently uncovered patent application that showed off potential designs for how the search giant could package a smart contact lens. When reached for comment, a Google representative said that product releases can't be deduced from patent applications.

For those who aren't aware, the smart lens can measure glucose levels by analysing the wearer's tears. It is capable of generating a reading once per second.

The Internet has changed so many things we do these days, and we tend to take it for granted. Here are some things that the evolution of the Internet has changed in our lives:


1. The Web of Information - There is so much information at our fingertips these days, and we instantly have access to it. Gone are the days of having to go through numerous libraries looking for information, when all we need to do is to go on the Internet.


2. Add-Ons Making Our Lives Easier - When writing, searching the Internet, or even communicating with people, add-ons have been revolutionary. Creating a web of trust for us, and helping us avoid malicious sites, it seems we can't live without add-ons these days.


3. Online Gaming - All modern consoles and desktop computers are connected to the Internet and allow us to play with people from all over the world. We tend to take them for granted these days, but where would we be without the ability to compete against each other?


4. Twitch and YouTube - The ability to stream our gameplay and watch others playing is growing in popularity, especially with eSports. Imagine how hard it was to do that in the past? We did have old shows like Gamesmaster, but not live and not instantly at hand.


5. Netflix and Chill - Streaming our favourite movies and television show is something we all love to do. Binge-watching now means simply selecting what we want to watch, instead of continually having to change the VHS/DVD/Blu-ray after every few episodes.


6. Online Shopping - The ability to purchase anything we want and have it sent to our homes is something we take for granted now. Many would argue that this is one of the best evolutions of the Internet and what it has done for us.


7. Improved Customer Support - Gone are the days of having to pay telephone charges to get help, with customer support being available on the Internet. With live chats with people ready to help, it seems that getting help has never been easier.


8. The Power of the New Media - News has gone through a revolution with live streaming from phones and other devices. Gone are the days when we were reliant on television news show, as the Internet provides news instantaneously to us all.


9. Accountability - The Internet has helped us to hold people with authority to account. Gone are the days when governments try to hide facts, with the Internet bringing protesters together to work for the good of the people. There may be dangers of "fake news" but most of us see through that quickly.


10. The Smart Phone - The Internet is in the palm of our hands wherever we go. What better evolution of the Internet than this instant access from anywhere around the world?


The Internet continues to evolve and get better and better. We reap the rewards of the technical advances we see every day, and the list above are just a few ways our lives have been improved.


Nexus 6

 

We had already seen an issue with the Nexus Player having its preorders pulled from the Google Play Store because the Android TV device hadn't passed through the FCC. But, we won't be having the same problems with the Nexus 6, because it has just gotten FCC approval, with plenty of time to spare before preorders start this Wednesday, October 29th.

 

There are two different models that have passed the FCC labeled with ID IHDT56QD2 and IHDT56QD1, but we can assume that they are the XT1100, which is the international variant, and the XT1103, which is the North American model, respectively.

 

Nexus 6

 

The filings aren't labeled as Nexus devices, but come from Motorola and have the same dimensions (159.4mm x 83mm) as the Nexus 6, so it's pretty easy to make the leap. The device also shows the other wireless tech that you would expect, like Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 3.0 and 4.0, NFC, and Qi wireless charging.

Moonlight

 

Samsung's Sept,3 IFA event is very soon. Here's the first look at the upcoming Samsung Virtual Reality Headset. According to the photo source, the company is set to unveil this device (codenamed Project Moonlight) at its upcoming Unpacked event in Berlin and New York, where Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4.

 

The image seems to show a focus dial and ample lenses, as well as a front panel that would hold a phone, falling in line with previous rumors.

 

"Oculus" which uses a Note 3 display in some of its newer headsets has previously been reported to be tied up with this project, a nod to the fact that modern smartphones have large, ultra-high-resolution displays and enough sensors to accomplish much of the orientation that a full virtual reality system needs.
