Apparently, everybody doesn't believe that one flagship per year is enough! The recently released P9 is the king of Huawei smartphones right now, but it is about to be dethroned as Huawei plans to release the Mate 9 by the end of 2016. Phone Arena adds that a late 2016 release is an educated guess because the Mate 8 was indeed revealed towards the end of 2015.


The rumored Kirin 960 SoC will power the device, placing it above the P9, which sports the Kirin 955 chipset. Expectations from the camera department are very high as the rumored 20-megapixel dual sensors at the back will presumably be designed by Leica, who had helped Huawei earlier to build the P9's camera setup as well.


Huawei has never exactly skimped out on power when it comes to the Chinese manufacturer's top-tier handsets, so we expect the Mate 9 to be packed to the gill with the latest hardware. At this point though, it is too early to predict other specifications of the device because even the prototypes are probably not ready yet. Nonetheless, we expect at least 4GB of RAM (if not 6GB) to accompany the Kirin 960, along with a powerful battery, a large display and a next-gen fingerprint sensor.

HTC Camera

Included out of the box with the HTC Desire EYE, Eye Experience offers a number of cool features for the phone's cameras including Face-Fusion, Screen Share, Split Capture and Auto Selfie to name a few. In a rush to get the Eye Experience update pushed-out to HTC One M8 users, HTC had to leave out the Crop-Me-In feature that was part of the original package.

Today, an update to the Android version of the HTC Camera app brings a beta version of the Crop-Me-In feature to HTC One M8 owners. This feature allows you to crop a selfie taken with the front-facing camera into a picture snapped with the rear camera. You can put yourself in the middle of any situation and share the "proof" with your friends and family via social media.

Last week, rumor surfaced that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 won't have a major design change in comparison to the Galaxy S6 series. Now, we can actually have a look at the not-much-changed look of the S7, because of the leaked renders.

 


The Galaxy S7 designs were revealed by smartphone case maker ITSkins, and it shows a device that mostly looks similar to the regular Galaxy S6, with one prominent difference: the home button has become rectangular. Dimension of the Galaxy S7 is 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, which is also just about the same size as the Galaxy S6 (143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm). The rear snapper bump will remain intact, and same will be case with the LED flash, plus a heart rate sensor. If these measurements are almost accurate, the Galaxy S7 will have a 5.1-inch display, like its predecessor.


It looks like the SIM card slot has been moved to the side of the device in the Galaxy S7. In the Galaxy S6, sim slot was on the top. This device is supposed to be powered by Exynos 8890 chipset with Samsung's own custom CPU design (or a Snapdragon 820 chipset), 4GB RAM, an enhanced camera sensor, USB Type-C connector, and probably a microSD card slot.

Smartphone geeks can not be stopped from thinking about what 2016's top line models will look like, and a credible report has provided answer to some of the questions, we now know a quite a few things about Samsung's soon to be launched Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets.


The Wall Street Journal is giving reference of people familiar with this and reporting that next year's Galaxy S7 smartphone will feature some major upgrades compared to the currently available model. As per this report, the upcoming Samsung smartphone will come with a pressure-sensitive screen, like the one that Apple launched with its iPhones. It will enable the phone to react differently depending on whether the user is simply touching or pressing the screen.


Also Samsung Galaxy S7 will include a retina scanner, although this feature is currently available in some of the selected models, and might not actually be available in the market. The Galaxy S6 models already sport a fingerprint scanner, and along with a retina scanner, possibly with similar functionality to the iris scanner found on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, Samsung is planning to compete in the biometric sensor arena.


The Galaxy S7 is supposed to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will be powered by an Exynos 8890 processor (or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC in some devices), backed by 4GB RAM along with fast wireless charging, LTE Cat. 12 and USB Type-C connectivity.

It has just recently come to public attention that the upcoming Galaxy S8 is codenamed Project Dream. The moniker may have a lot to do with VR and the next steps that Samsung will take to enhance the technology. Even though it is just too early in the day to know in details about the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone for 2017, sources are pointing towards a 4K Ultra High Definition display (3840 × 2160) on a 5.5-inch panel. They are also pointing towards an independent VR device named Odyssey that will compete with the likes of the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.


It is rumoured that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 SoC to power everything, with an Exynos equivalent for the international version of course. However, we are pretty sure that the chipset would have to be extremely powerful to run VR apps at 4K resolution! Considering that the Oculus Rift with a lower resolution (2160 × 1200) requires a minimum of a GTX 970 (high end GPU for desktops) to be used properly with a fully fledged desktop, the chipset will have to be significantly more powerful than what we have seen so far on smartphones.

Samsung is back in the game and they leaving no stone unturned to make the recently announced Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge successful. It is understable as many things depend on these two smartphones. The Galaxy S6 was released last year around February and it had some high risk redesign elements ever taken in the lifetime of the of the Galaxy S series. But it didn't get much traction owing to general market saturation, and the irreplaceable battery coupled with provision for embedded storage only. What took Samsung by surprise was the huge demand for the Galaxy S6 edge's in the initial period. They could not manufacture substantial number of curved screens for this device and that caused blockage in sales funnel.


In 2016, Samsung is making sure to listen to customer sentiments for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Although the design might not be premium, the chassis factor of the device is premium. They are concentrating on the things that matter the most in the new age smartphones - performance of the snapper in low light, battery power, toughness. Along with all these they have reinstated the microSD slot in order to expand memory storage.


Given below are the final set of features of this device:


  • 12 MP primary camera
  • Super fast processor (Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820)
  • 4GB RAM (DDR4)
  • Water resistant chassis
  • Samsung Smart Switch with USB
  • Bigger battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Edge UX
  • LTE Cat 12 modem
  • Display screen in always on mode
  • Vulkan graphics and Game Launcher
  • Liquid cooling for heat dissipation
  • microSD slot

Galaxy Note 5


Samsung has been teasing its development of a 4K AMOLED display for a long time now, but now a new piece of information suggests the first phone to brag with it is the Galaxy Note 5.

 

According to a new Samsung display roadmap, a Samsung 4K AMOLED screen is 6" in diagonal and packs a pixel density of 743ppi is coming on 2015.

 

S4

 

This information is not confirmed yet, it's very early to say, but is highly likely for Samsung to use this display on its upcoming Phablet. The Galaxy Note family of smartphones grow ever so larger in terms of display, so a 6" would be a logical evolutionary step for the Galaxy Note 5.

 

Moreover, recent rumors suggest that Galaxy Note 5 will be powered by an Exynos 7420 Octa-core chipset, which would have four Cortex-A57 cores + four Cortex-A53.

A New Galaxy note will be coming next year for sure and the korean giant labs is already preparing for it. Samsung has been teasing its development of a 4K AMOLED display for a long time now, but now a new piece of information suggests the first phone to brag with it is the Galaxy Note 5.

Just two days ago, Synaptics had announced their next gen fingerprint scanner (FS9100) which works even when placed under a millimetre of glass or when operated with a wet finger. Most of the world was almost sure at this point that the Galaxy S8 will feature this optical fingerprint scanner under its dual curved edge-to-edge display. However, a new report has surfaced on the internet recently which has forced the tech-enthusiasts around the world to reconsider that conclusion. According to this report, the "under the glass" optical fingerprint scanner did not work well with the S8 and therefore, Samsung is opting for a physical rear mounted scanner instead. If you are wondering why the scanner won't be a part of the Home button as usual, it's because there won't be a Home button on the Galaxy S8, as far as all reports, rumors and leaks are concerned.


Amidst all the confusion regarding the fingerprint scanner, let us not forget about the iris scanner which is also rumoured to be on the S8. Although we saw the iris scanner briefly on the Note 7 before it was shut down, the chances are pretty high that an enhanced version of the same sensor will be seen on the upcoming flagship from Samsung.

No we are not joking and this isn't a self-assigned term either as Samsung has actually applied recently for patenting the exact phrase, "Beast Mode." The application for having the name as their licensed copyright material was filed in the European Union. If you have any doubt as to where Samsung is going to use it, be informed that they plan to use it for naming something that's related to a future version of Samsung's smartphone UI. This is what has led us and many others to believe that the S8 may have an option called Beast Mode.


Although the trademark doesn't explain how Samsung plans to use it, it doesn't take a genius to guess that it will perhaps be an enhanced version of the Performance Mode already used by plenty of smartphone User Interfaces to increase the raw processing power of the device for better results in benchmarks and 3D games. Some are speculating that the Beast Mode may also have something to do with VR. We will find out more before the Galaxy S8 is made official in April.

We are not sure but there might be a reason as to why Samsung has pushed the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone and to a place where it can hardly be reached without a conscious effort. Alongside the iris scanner which debuted and drowned with the Note 7, the S8 may also feature a facial unlocking mechanism. However, the report doesn't mention whether both the S8 and the S8+ will sport facial recognition. Nevertheless, we are pretty sure that both the smartphones will have it, provided that the rumor is true in the first place of course.


According to the report, an unnamed Samsung official mentioned that the new facial recognition software is fast enough to unlock the S8 in just 0.01 seconds. He added, "Due to some limits of iris scanning such as speed and accuracy, we have decided to add facial recognition to the Galaxy S8." This leads us to the question; did Samsung deliberately push the fingerprint scanner to such an inconvenient position, in an effort to promote the facial recognition feature?

The Galaxy S8 has brought true desktop experience onto a mobile phone, thanks to DeX. However, here are a few things that you need to know about the app, before you decide to buy the S8 or the S8+ based on that feature.


You NEED the Dock


You will have to shell out an additional $160 to buy the DeX Dock because it simply won't work without it. The dock has an HDMI port, two USB ports, Bluetooth, a cooling fan and it even charges the phone. Apart from the monitor itself and the connecting wire, this is the only other accessory you will need.


It Resembles Windows


The experience is not unlike what we are all used to seeing from Windows computers. The app window is at the bottom left corner, just like the Windows button and you can minimize, maximize or multitask on the monitor just like on a fully-fledged PC or Mac.


You May Not Really Need it!


We cannot deny that the idea and the implementation is excellent this time around and even beats the Microsoft Continuum system in a few things. However, since it is not exactly a laptop replacement, we are not sure if you really can find it useful! It's not like you can carry around a monitor in addition to a phone and a dock while travelling. At home or office, you already have a laptop or two, so Samsung may need to find some good uses for it very soon, if they want DeX to be a major selling factor for the Galaxy S8 series.

The modular design for smartphones is nothing new really and a lot of the companies have already tried or are currently trying their hands at the concept. However, they have not tuned out to be the revolution as many had hoped they would be. The Moto Mods, LG G5 and the most talked about Essential Phone by Andy Ruben himself sported/sports modular concepts. However, Samsung has so far stayed away from modular designs when it comes to smartphones. According to a new report by SamMobile, all that is about to change because the Galaxy S9 is rumored to be Samsung's first modular phone.


Similar to what Lenovo has done with the Moto mods and the Moto Z smartphones, the Galaxy S9 could be sporting magnetic pins at its back for accessory attachments. Of course, this is just a rumor at this point, but would you like to see Samsung adopt something like this? Or do you prefer the tried and tested old design? Let us know in the comments.

Google released the Android N build all of a sudden last night. For the first time in Google's history developer preview edition has been released this early. The reasoning behind this is to get feedback early and release it to the OEMs in order to the help them build their flavor quickly.


Right now this build is compatible with the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, and Pixel C. Given below are some of the salient features:


Better notifications


There will be quick shortcuts once the notifications shade is pulled down. After pulling it down, users will be able to the toggles and see a paginated grid. This essentially means there will be another page for the toggles which are not used often.


One more nice feature is the ability to reply to messages right from the notifications screen. This is something iOS does and it can be very convenient. Implementation of this feature will be the developers call but it is expected that the popular IM apps will take advantage of this new RemoteInput notifications API.



Split-screen multitasking


The split-screen multitasking can be used by pressing the overview button and dragging one of the windows to the top of the display to attach it there. Then another app can be selected in work in the rest of the screen. Another way to do this is to swipe up from the overview key to select the app to work on the half the screen and select another app for the rest.


Improved Doze and Project Svelte


Doze mode can now put hold on the background activities when the display is switched off, irrespective of whether the device is active or not. Added advantage is that there will be saving of battery charge. Now Project Svelte is in a better state and minimizes background activity by getting rid of the three default broadcasts.


Improved Settings app


The settings app will show the description of the items and there will be introduction a new option for data saving. The improved night mode will make the screen warmer for better readability.

Google is now Rolling-out the stable Chrome for Android version 42.0.2311.108 with many bug fixes, performance improvements and a couple of new features that will change the way you get contents updates from websites.

 

In this latest version of Chrome for Android, Google introduced the ability to monitor websites for content changes. Set up the monitoring feature on your favorite website, and Chrome will fire up a notification when the content is changed. Unfortunately, this new feature will not work out of the box, as web developers need to implement the new Google Push API for Chrome. Possible use case scenarios include the ability to be notified when your order status changes. To prevent abuse, the user will have to explicitly set up permissions for these notifications, and the notifications messages themselves include a site setting button.

This cropping displays the Feature Graphic images wrongly, which caused some designers to complain about this bug.

 

what's new

 

Also, many users are complaining from the updated "What's New" section which has a Green text on a green background which is hard to read, according to many users. Very bad color scheme choice from Google designers.

heart

 

We came across a Japan-only Mobile Phone with odd design. Meet the Heart 401AB a feature phone whose shape matches the name it sports.

 

heart

 

As impossible as it might sound these days, the handset you see above can only handle phone calls there's no SMS functionality or internet connectivity on board. Heart 401AB will be available in March on the Japanese carrier Ymobile (which is very close to our own brand name "YouMobile"). The latter utilizes PHS network, which is mostly for voice calls.

 

heart

 

The specs of the phone are headed by a 128×36 dot display, phonebook with 100 entries, and support for hands-free handset. Heart 401AB will ship with heart-shaped charger that's as gaudy as the phone itself. In case you still find the device a tad too subtle, a Sailor Moon edition will offer even more visual flare.

Evan Blass created quite a stir among LG fans when he "revealed" certain details for the upcoming LG flagship. The man behind @evleaks on Tweeter declared that the LG G5 will sport a full metal body to match the premium feel offered by most of its rivals in the industry. According to him, the G5 will also have a secondary display with a resolution of 160×1040. The second panel, hailed as a "ticker" display will function in more or less the same way as it does on the LG V10. If Blass' sources are right, then the ticker display will become a typical LG signature for all its mid to high range smartphones in 2016.


There are other stipulations that were specified in the leak and we will get to them, but what intrigued us most was the"Magic slot." It seems that the LG G5 will feature a certain port that will enable the smartphone to connect with and detect both advanced gadgets like a 360 degree Virtual reality camera as well as basic hardware devices like a keyboard. If you are wondering whether it also has micro SD card expansion capabilities to complement the magic slot, you will have to keep wondering for a while longer as it was not mentioned.


Other leaked specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3GB RAM and at least 32GB of in-built storage under the hood. On the camera front, the 16 megapixel shooter with laser autofocus and RGB sensor will probably be the same one seen in the LG V10. The G5 will supposedly have a fingerprint scanner on the back rather than being embedded in the Home button. All of this will be powered by a removable 2800mAh battery, which is surprising after considering that the G4 has a 3000mAh battery. Although the slightly smaller 5.3 inch Quad HD display will probably consume less power as well.


Before you start taking these speculations too seriously, take our advice and refrain from believing too much into the "leak." While some of the features mentioned will surely make their way into the final version, the rest may not.
