It was made official in November that OnePlus would be updating its current-gen flagship handsets to Android Nougat by the end of 2016. OnePlus has kept true to that promise as Carl Pei (CEO of OnePlus) confirmed that the company has managed to release the final stable version of the OS on 31st December, 2016. The Oxygen OS v4.0 firmware based on Nougat 7.0 is now live and rolling out to OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones around the world via OTA.


Some of the changes that this update will bring to the two devices include the following.
Improved shelf customization
Redesigned notification menu and settings overlay
The ability to reply to messages from the notifications menu
The ability to change icons in the status bar
Multi-window support
Support for custom DPI
Quick Launch for third-party applications


Available only to the OnePlus 3 earlier, the Open Beta 1 program is now also available to the OnePlus 3T, as announced by the OEM. If you want, the beta firmware is available for downloading and flashing manually onto your OnePlus 3/3T, but keep in mind that this will make your device a part of OnePlus's beta release cycle and the subsequent OTA updates will keep coming accordingly. If you don't want that then just wait a few days until the official, stable version arrives for your smartphone.

The speculations regarding the next OnePlus smartphone's numbering was right on point, as made evident by the Chinese OEM itself today. The rumors were confident that the next OnePlus would be named OnePlus 5, intentionally skipping the number 4 for superstitious reasons. The superstition behind the belief in work is (allegedly) the fact that the Chinese associate the umber 4 with death. We are not sure about the story, but whatever the reasons are, they were right! OnePlus has just released a teaser image on Weibo which you can check out above. It shows the 1+ Logo and a text that simply reads, "HELLO 5." The image was accompanied by some added text which read, "Hey Summer! Give me five."


In case you haven't figured it out already, the "HELLO 5" is a confirmation that the next smartphone from the company's stable will indeed be called OnePlus 5. The text on the other hand, clearly teases a summer release. If we were to make an intelligent guess, we would say that the phone will be released at least in China by the end of July (latest), if not sooner. The dual camera module at the back, the SD 835 chip and the 3,600mAh Dash Charging battery sounds amazing, but we do hope the resolution is bumped up to 1440p this time around.

ASUS has just started to roll out Android Marshmallow updates to the ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KL) and this package addresses something that many users had been complaining about since launch. The ZenFone 2 Laser, in addition to all other ZenFones in the series, comes preloaded with plenty of apps that some users may find annoying. If you are not a fan of the preloaded bloatware either, you will be happy to know that this latest update will not only upgrade your phone to Android M, but will also remove most of those applications by default.


Here is a list of all the pre-installed applications which will no longer be a part of your ZenFone 2 Laser, once it has been upgraded to Android 6.0 with Build number 13.10.6.16_M3.6.44.


ASUS Backup


ASUS Calendar


ASUS Email


ASUS Messenger


Data transfer


Dr. Eye


Dr. Safety


EZ Ding


Google+


Google Settings


iReader


Mirror


Omlet


Party Link


PC Link


Photo Frame


Puffin Browser


Remote Link


TripAdvisor


What's Next


Yahoo Shopping


Zino


There will also be a few new apps installed on your ZE500KL once you perform the upgrade, but thankfully, the list is not nearly as long as the list above. Dr. Booster, Google calendar and Google Messenger are the only three new applications that you will find on your phone post upgrade. If the package has already arrived on your smartphone, here are a few things that we recommend for you to keep in mind before you go through with the download and installation.


Backup your data and move all media files to your micro-SD card.


Move all applications to your internal storage because after this update, your ZenFone 2 Laser will lose support for APP2SD.


Stay signed into your Google and ASUS accounts in order to be able to use the Multi-user feature on your smartphone.


Once you are done, let us know if you really like the bloatware free experience or would you have preferred it if the Taiwanese company left a few of the removed apps on board?

snapchat

 

Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging servicess among the teens. It's been around for over three years now and even though it's yet to monetize its user base, things are going very well for it. There were even rumors Snapchat refused acquisition bids from Facebook and Google worth $3 to $4 billion.

 

It seems the Snapchat CEO was right to turn those offers, if real. The company is estimating its value at $10 billion as it prepares for another round of financing.

 

snapchat

 

Apparently Yahoo is very close to investing $20 million into Snapchat. It has done such investments before and they turned into billions of profits later.

The beta version of the Chrome browser often brings unique features to its Android users and this time around, they have introduced something that is sure to become an instant fan favourite. If you update your Chrome Beta to the latest version 54, it will now be able to play YouTube in the background. Prior to the update, videos would pause the moment you exited the app, like it does on most browsers. Post the update, a play/pause button will appear in your notifications panel on exiting the Chrome Beta browser, which you can then use to continue playing the video in the background, while accessing other apps on your device. Needless to say, users who largely listen to audio content on YouTube will particularly appreciate this feature.


If you are streaming music from a website on the Chrome Beta Browser, it will continue to play in the background on exiting, just like a dedicated music streaming application. Even though this is exciting news, there's a high chance that this feature will be excluded in the next update unfortunately. Let's not forget that playing videos in the background is a feature of YouTube Red, which is a paid subscription based service. As this free feature makes paying for the same thing on the YouTube app unnecessary and both are owned by Google... you can do the math.

LG G flex2

 

LG brought out what will certainly be one of the most innovative products at the CES 2015, the curved LG G Flex2. It's more compact and more powerful than its predecessor, more curved and heals faster.

 

Starting off with the display, LG's homemade P-OLED tech has improved over the last year and the new screen has 1080p resolution (up from just 720p). Meanwhile the screen diagonal has shrunken a bit to the more manageable 5.5" (down from 6").

 

lg g flex 2

LG G Flex2 Full Specifications

 

The screen is protected by an LG-developed glass cover that is said to be 20% more durable than Gorilla Glass 3. The back has a special self-healing coating LG marked a massive improvement by cutting the heal time from 3 minutes to just 10 seconds at room temperature. Check the video below to see it in live action.

 

Anyway, the LG G Flex2 will be the most powerful device for a while it will be the first to bring Snapdragon 810 in consumer hands and it only renders at 1080p (not QHD!). The phone will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop and 2GB RAM. For storage there's 16GB or 32GB, plus a microSD card.

Galaxy Note5

 

Yesterday, Samsung has just launched its new phablet smartphone, Galaxy Note5 in India at a local event in New Delhi. Priced at INR 53,900 ($800) for the 32GB model, and INR 59,900 ($890) for the 64GB model.

 

The Galaxy Note5 is the latest in Samsung's line of Note devices. Internally, the phone is quite similar to the previously launched Galaxy S6 but features a larger 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM, bigger 3000mAh battery, and Fast Wireless Charging. It also has the S Pen stylus that the series is known for.

 

Galaxy Note5

 

Compared to the previous Galaxy Note 4, the Note5 loses the faux leather back finish, instead opting for the new glass back similar to the S6. The battery is also sealed in this time and there isn't expandable memory, again like the S6. The Note5, however, loses the IR blaster, that both the S6 and the Note 4 have.

 

The Note5 will be available in Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium starting September,20th.

The Desire 820 was released back in 2014 and it's good to see that HTC has not abandoned it yet. The smartphone just started to receive an update package Over The Air which will not only bring Android 6.0.1 to the smartphone, but will also upgrade the Sense UI to v7.0, post installation. This is good news but we are not yet sure as to which regions the update is covering at this moment. In fact, the news came as quite a surprise and was reported first by GSM Arena after being tipped off by Rupak Thapa.


If you are using a HTC Desire 820 and have not been notified about the update yet, check for it manually. Go to Settings, tap on About device at the bottom and just select Check for updates. If the results are negative and you do not see a prompt to update your handset, there is still no need to fret. OTA updates are always rolled out in phases, meaning that all HTC Desire 820 smartphones cannot receive the update at the same time. Nonetheless, it only takes a few days before all the phases begin to roll out so just keep checking.

In their own words, if you are a Verizon customer who consumes an "extraordinary amount" of data while using their unlimited data plans, the company will force you to switch over to The Verizon Plan by August 31. If you decide not to change your plan even after the warning and the deadline, your connection will be cut off from the network. After the connection has been shut down, the customer will be able to activate their connection back within fifty days, on switching over to some other Verizon plan than before.


It should be noted that Verizon Wireless had stopped with the unlimited plans a long time ago and this is a ploy to bring the remaining subscribers into one of their new data plans. Although they did mention that they will only contact customers who are using too much data on a monthly basis, no exact number was revealed. However, this makes one wonder, how one can possibly use too much data in a plan that's been marketed as "unlimited?" Whatever the logic at work over here might be, this is how the situation is right now, as reported by Droid-Life.

Nokia Z launcher

 

Nokia announced its first lollipop tablet, Nokia N1 last month with its own UI on top which called the Nokia Z Launcher. Well, lucky enough, the Nokia Z Launcher is still in BETA stages and has been updated to version 1.0.5 with some bug fixes and now works on more devices.

 

Nokia Z

 

The Launcher learns from your usage and picks up contextual cues (e.g. whether it's morning or evening), but the feature that sets it apart is scribbling.

 

Instead of having to hunt down the right shortcut though an alphabetized list, you just your finger to write the first letter and the Z Launcher will display matching apps sorted by how much you use each one of them.

The Z Launcher on the Lollipop-running Nokia N1 tablet is an exclusive version, but you can download the BETA generic version 1.0.5 from the APK link below for a small taste of the experience engineered by Nokia.

Good News for Android users, as Nokia HERE app is now Available for FREE on Google Play. What is HERE ?. Well, it's the famed mapping service that is still under Nokia's wing, which provides its users with completely offline navigation, has a wide array of available maps, up-to-date info for public transportation, as well as turn-by-turn voice guidance all of this free of charge.

 

Here

 

Up until now, the app was only available for Samsung devices on one of Samsung's online app repositories. Apart from arriving on Google Play, HERE Beta also adds navigation support for plenty of new countries (Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Cyprus, Iraq, Libya, Mauritania, Mauritius, Nepal, Paraguay, Saint Helena, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Zambia, Zimbabwe), though these countries have not been fully-mapped just yet.

Scribble


HTC Scribble is Now Available in the Play Store. HTC Scribble is one of those little add-on features in Sense that doesn't get much press... on account of it not being very useful. Scribble is basically a digital scrapbooking app made to highlight some other features of Sense, like Zoe and some rudimentary stylus support. The app was introduced on the plus-sized HTC One Max, but may be available for other One devices.

 

HTC Scribble

 

HTC bills Scribble as a super-flexible way to do everything from making a digital collage to keeping track of a budget, but aside from a few neat extras like the ability to take a photo inside the app itself, it's probably more unwieldy than dedicated apps. Text, audio recordings, and a variety of stickers can be inserted into a Scribble project, and at least some of the text can be dynamic, including basic column support.

HTC Desire Eye

 

Yesterday, HTC released a new device called HTC Desire Eye. This is the first Smartphone with an HTC Eye 13MP front-facing camera and flash for amazing selfies, the Desire Eye also packs a 13MP rear-camera with flash too.

 

Both cameras can record [email protected] video. The one on the back has an f/2.0 aperture and a 28mm lens, while the one on the front has a wider 20mm lens but a smaller f/2.2 aperture.

 

Desire eye

 

HTC's trademark BoomSound speakers are harder to see but still on board. They flank the larger 5.2" screen of the HTC Desire Eye, an LCD with 1080p resolution. Besides selfie camera and screen size, the Eye also trumps the One E8 with an IPX7 rating water resistance up to 1m of water for half an hour.

HTC Desire Eye Specifications

 

The Desire Eye carries much better specs than most of the Desire family. It's powered by a Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB RAM and runs Android 4.4 with the latest Sense software and two camera-centric apps Eye Experience and the new Zoe.

htc one m9

 

The plan all along was for the HTC One M9 to launch in HTC's backyard. But the date of the release, March 16th, had to be changed reportedly due to a software issue. Some said that the handset was having problems booting up, while others assumed that the problem had to do with the Snapdragon 810's alleged propensity to get a fever. After all, while running a benchmark test, HTC's new flagship had a surface temperature of 132 degrees fahrenheit.

 

But the good news is that HTC has sent out a patch that turns down the heat. A more recent reading of an HTC One M9 test unit showed the phone running at a much cooler 104 degrees fahrenheit, just two degrees higher than the HTC One (M8) ran during that aforementioned benchmark test.

 

So now that everything is copacetic with the HTC One M9, the handset is available for purchase in Taiwan, priced at the equivalent of $698 USD for the 32GB model. The 64GB variant, which is expected to be available at a future date, will be priced at the equivalent of $732 USD.

"Three" has joined the list of carriers in the UK that offer pre-orders for the HTC One (M9). The phone is available starting at £39 a month with an upfront cost of £19.

 

For the price you can get 1GB of 4G data and unlimited calls and SMS. There are also 2GB 4G data and unlimited 4G data options for £42 and £47 per month but the £19 upfront cost for the device remains. The HTC One (M9) can be had in either Silver/Rose gold and Gunmetal Gray.

 

And if you weren't familiar yet the HTC One (M9) can also be pre-ordered in Gold from EE UK, from Vodafone UK, O2 UK and also through Carphone Warehouse with deals from O2, Vodafone and EE.

HTC One M9+

 

Finally, HTC has just officially announced the One M9+ at a press event held in Beijing, China.

 

The HTC One M9+ features a 5.2" QHD 1440 x2560 pixels display and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7 UI. It packs 32GB built-in storage and has a 20MP rear f/2.2 camera with secondary lens on the top for depth-sensing. For the selfie enthusiasts, there is a UltraPixel camera in the front. One major highlight of this smartphone is the 2.2GHz MediaTek MT6795T chipset armed with an octa-core CPU and 3GB RAM.

 

one M9+

 

HTC BoomSound speakers with Dolby Surround sound support come on the front along with a home button which integrates a fingerprint sensor with support for the AliPay payment system in China. There is no clarity on whether the One M9+ if sold outside China will bear fingerprint sensor. The device also offers a 2840 mAh battery to power the smartphone. HTC will introduce the phone in three color options Gunmetal grey, Amber Gold, and Silver Gold color options.

Samsung is looking to enhance the fingerprint senor's capabilities beyond that of only locking and unlocking the phone. The published patent indicates that the company hopes to bring swipe functionalities to their fingerprint scanners, which will enable the user to perform various actions by making swipe gestures on the fingerprint scanner itself. If you are not aware, then let us inform you that this sounds very similar to what the Google Pixel phones brought with them this year. Before you call out Samsung for "copying" the Pixels, note that they had actually filed for this particular patent way back in 2014.


Will we be able to swipe directly from the fingerprint scanner and launch an application from the lock screen on the Galaxy S8? We are not entirely sure to be honest. Many rumors indicate that the S8 will feature the company's first commercial bezel-less display, of which, a new optical fingerprint scanner will be an embedded part. If that turns out to be true, it is hard to tell whether that particular scanner will also be able to support the swipe functionality.

Samsung doesn't want to take any chance when it comes to inserting the Galaxy Note 5's pen the right way. After the device was launched, many users started reporting that if the S Pen will be inserted in a wrong way, it would actually damage the internal S Pen sensor and without causing more damage it'll be practically impossible to remove the pen. Although the Korean company responded quickly, the damage was already done.


Roughly after three months, Samsung has started shipping the device with a brand new image and warning showing how to insert the pen in the specified slot. At first the warning label was shown via a YouTube video uploaded by "J. Williams". The video showcased T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Gold Platinum, and SamMobile made it surface on the internet.


From this video, it is quite evident that the warning label says "Be sure to insert your S pen with the nib pointed inward. Inserting the S pen the wrong way can cause it to become stuck and can damage the pen and your phone". Also there are two pairs of images showing the correct and incorrect way of inserting the stylus.


Interesting thing to note here is that in case of previous Note variants if someone would try to insert the pen in a wrong way, that person would experience an obstruction and it'll make the user realise that something is wrong. Sadly that's not the case with Note 5.

India is the first country to receive the latest security patches for the month of August on the Galaxy S6 Edge and other countries should follow soon. The 63MB download will change your current firmware version to G925IDVS3EPH2 and will a security vulnerability on the device, that Samsung has termed as "critical." If you are thinking that this patches up the QuadRooter vulnerability that we have been hearing so much about, you would be wrong. To the best of our knowledge, QuadRooter only affects Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC. Even if there is a connection, it was not mentioned in the changelog.



There are of course other general improvements in performance and optimizations, and if you want to go into the details, just consult the changelog while installing the update or check the screenshot above. Hopefully, the regular S6 will also be getting the same update, but we are not sure if or when it is coming. In the meanwhile, be wary of shady apps and always check the permission list before allowing the software access to your device.

India gets another exclusive device from Samsung in the budget category as the OEM announced the J2 Pro today. Samsung seems to be introducing a series of new smartphones to the subcontinent with the "Pro" moniker, boosted by slightly better hardware than their regular versions. As of now, we have the J2 (2016) Pro, J3 (2016) Pro, On5 Pro and the On7 Pro.


We can see two major hardware upgrades in the Pro version, as compared to the regular edition and they are in the RAM and internal storage department of the device. The J2 Pro will sport 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, as compared to the 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage on the J2 (2016). All other features, including the 1.5GHz Cortex A7 quad core processor and the 720p display remain the same.


In case you are interested in buying the smartphone, you can only do so from the Indian online retailer, Snapdeal for INR 9.890 ($150). The three color options of gold, silver and black are pretty much what we have come to expect from Samsung's low to mid range phones nowadays.

Did you find the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to be too modest? If so, then there is a way by which you can make your new S7 Edge stand out from the rest. Karalux is a Vietnamese company that specializes on luxury and if you have the money and the will to do so, they will gold-plate your latest Samsung smartphone for you. This may not come as a surprise to many because Karalux offered the same 24K gold-plating services for the S6 and S6 Edge last year as well.


According to the Vietnamese company, the process which allowed them to gold-plate the S6 series isn't the same anymore as Samsung has changed its aluminum grade from A7000 to A6000. This has somewhat complicated the procedure and as a result, it now takes 6 hours to complete it instead of the 3-hours timeframe from 2015. There are 10 stages involved in the process, at the end of which, your smartphone will never really lose all of its value.


If you are in Vietnam, you can own a 24K S7 for $1570 and a 24K S7 Edge for $1705. If you are an international buyer however, you will need to pay $1730 and $1930 for the gold-plated S7 and S7 Edge respectively.

If you have recently updated your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge to the latest version of its firmware, then you can now officially scale your smartphone's display. There was a public discussion regarding the feature lately and not long after, it has been made available within the Settings menu, under the Display tab. Many consider this feature to be incorporated in the next iteration of Android (Android N) and thus it could be a taste of things to come.


The display-scaling feature isn't really ground-breaking but it does have its uses. The basic idea behind the setting is that it allows users to choose the amount of condensation in terms of DPI. The higher the condensation, the more amount of content can be seen on the display of your S7 or S7 Edge. As of now, you get the option to choose between either Condensed or Standard.


This fresh addition is a part of Samsung's new outlook towards their business. In some of their executive's own words, the Korean giant is trying to act more like a new startup business rather than an old and established MNC. If the new updates and features from their revamped software department is any indication of what's to come, then this is probably a good time to be a loyal Samsung customer.

The SM-N930V has now surfaced on the internet as the smartphone's Geekbench results have just been revealed. In case you didn't know, the N930 is the model number of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 and the V at the end stands for Verizon, as always. The results reveal a few things, but the most significant and slightly disappointing fact which it unveils is the SoC of the upcoming device. It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be using the same Qualcomm SD 820 chipset as the Galaxy S7, and NOT the rumoured 821/823 chipset. The device also has just 4GB of RAM, instead of 6GB, which it is largely expected to have on release.


Now, there are two theories about the disappointing CPU and RAM seen here. The first theory suggests that this is just a test unit which is being used to test out the networks on Verizon and the final version will sport the SD 821/823 SoC and 6GB of RAM. The second theory states that there will be both 4GB versions with the Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB versions with the enhanced processing power. We will just have to wait to find out for sure when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is released on August 2.

Evan Blass from @evleaks has just released a few renders online via Twitter and they show the three colors of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in full flurry. The colors are Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Blue Coral, as supposedly named by Samsung. However, they have raised some eyebrows as the almost confirmed iris scanner we had seen before in the leaked photo of the Note 7's front panel, is missing here. The three circular lenses necessary for the iris scanner to work (as per a recent patent filed by Samsung) are nowhere to be seen in these alleged press renders of the next Note.



It should be noted that Evan Blass himself had declared that the Note 7 will have the much anticipated iris scanner, yet his own leak counters that theory now. Nonetheless, we can see a slightly curved back over here in this render, as well as an even lesser camera protrusion that seen on the S7. The S-Pen and its placement looks identical to that of the Note 5 and the dual Edge display can be clearly observed. Whether this is indeed the final render that will be seen on August 2 is something that we will find out in about a month's time from now.

Samsung has officially unveiled its next generation of chips at their Device Solutions America Headquarters and they are based on both 14nm, as well as 10nm processes. Now we know where all that investment into their semiconductor business went to. Additionally, they also unveiled their new generation of 7nm Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUV) wafer that will allow for precise patterning on chips, without needing to opt for more than just a single pattern.


The 14LPU process will improve over the current gen 14nm chips by providing them with a boost in performance without exceeding the allotted power quota. Processors enabled by these new 14nm chips will be able to provide high performance for long stretches at a time. The 10LPU process on the other hand, will make the next gen chips smaller than its predecessors; the 10LPE and 10LLP chips. The boost in performance is not highlighted as significant, but they will be cheaper to manufacture and will provide better power efficiency when used inside the new processors. Will the new tech be introduced with the Snapdragon 830 (rumored to be produced by Samsung)? Or will we see them exclusively in the new generation of the Exynos processors? We will find out soon.

There have already been plenty of rumors about Samsung's upcoming flagship device, the Galaxy S8, but Samsung is putting on the screws to keep the rumor lid tighter now. A report by the Korea Herald states that Samsung has informed all its supply chain partners and employees to practice caution and keep any details about the S8 a secret. In fact Samsung is taking it seriously enough to send out an email to all its employees that makes no secret about the company's belief; leaks regarding operational secrets of Samsung could "cause irreversible ramifications, posing a great financial risk on the company."


Leaks have often worked in favour of products around the world as they help to build excitement and anticipation in the same way as marketing does. However, it seems that the disaster with the Galaxy Note 7 has shaken up Samsung quite a bit and they are unwilling to take any chances whatsoever. That being said, the task of keeping the S8 a secret is almost an impossible one to be honest. There are literally hundreds of suppliers that Samsung closely works with, in addition to the thousands of people employed under them. To keep it a complete secret, Samsung will have to dedicate far too much attention to innumerable aspects.

Samsung had started to sell a few online-only mobile accessories in South Korea recently, but they have now decided to go global with these exclusive accessories from November. They will still be online-only products, but now you will be able to purchase the accessories from Samsung's own website or other major online shopping sites like Amazon. Many have speculated this move as a direct result of the losses that the company suffered in Q3 2016. If you are interested in what they are planning to sell, take a look at the catalogue below.


In-ear Headphones Rectangle design: Fabric\metal construction, tangle-free cable ($26 approx.)
USB LED Light ($9 approx.)
Wireless Charger Tray design: Support for charging two devices simultaneously ($58 approx.)
Battery Pack Kettle Design: 5,100mAh/10,200mAh ($26/$35 approx.)
Wireless Speaker Bottle Design: wireless charging, 360-degree surround sound, motion sensitive UX ($77 approx.)
Wireless Speaker Scoop Design: Disc design, built-in microphone ($48 approx.)


Keep in mind that the price tags mentioned may differ as they are attained by simply converting each of the product's value from Korean Won to USD.

It's finally over for the Galaxy Note 7 as Samsung decides to pull the plug on the potentially dangerous phablet, all over the world. A second recall is now being put into effect which will even include the replacement units which were supposed to be safe. Production of the Note 7 has also been stopped and this is what the OEM had to say regarding the matter.


"Taking our customer's safety as our highest priority, we have decided to halt sales and production of the Galaxy Note 7,"



"Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7,"


According to the authorities and the manufacturer, all owners should power off their Note 7 smartphone, irrespective of whether they have a device marked as safe or not. This is definitely the biggest disaster in the smartphone business ever for the company. Analysts are predicting somewhere around $17 billion in terms of the expenditure that Samsung will have to bear as a result of this whole incident. Also, Samsung lost eight percent in the share market in one day on October 11, which in itself is a record in the last ten years. The long term effect that this will have on Samsung's reputation and sales is however, unimaginable.

Samsung has recently released an application on the Play Store named Wi-Fi Transfer. As far as functionality is concerned, the name itself is quite self-explanatory as it allows users to transfer various files via Wi-Fi without utilizing an active internet connection. One of the two devices is used to setup a Wi-Fi tethering connection, while the other one connects to the first device through the temporary Wi-Fi network.


The technology itself can be used to transfer files between any two smartphones running on Android. However, since Wi-Fi Transfer is an app by Samsung, the only handsets that are able to use the application right now are the ones made by Samsung.


The Play Store already has a good number of apps that allow the same facilities and most of them are compatible with the majority of Android devices. We are not sure what the exact purpose of this application was, but Samsung certainly seems to think that it was needed. The list of compatible smartphones even in the roster of Samsung is unfortunately on the lower side and several bugs have been reported. As it is a newly released application, we are sure that things will get better with each update.

The Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro is now official as it was unveiled earlier today in China. This is the first smartphone from Samsung's arsenal to come equipped with 6 gigs of RAM, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC. The huge phablet sports a 6" display that's even larger than Samsung's Note series of smartphones. However, in spite of being larger, the panel sports a lower resolution than the company's flagship smartphones as it is Full HD, instead of Quad HD.



Other specs of the phablet include 64GB of internal storage, a micro-SD card slot, 16-mp sensors for both the rear and the front camera with f/1.9 aperture, a 4,000mAh battery, dual SIM slots with 4G LTE support, fingerprint sensor, Cirrus manufactured Hi-Fi audio codec, a 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, Samsung Pay, Android 6.0.1 and an all metal body. We are particularly interested to see how the octa-core SD 653 performs, which is powered by four Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores. The powerful Adreno 510 GPU supporting the CPU cores should also be able to take care of any modern Android games that you throw at it, especially since it's only a 1080p panel on the C9 pro.

The exact verdict on whether or not the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which caught fire onboard a Southwest Airline place is actually a new and safe (supposed to be at least!) unit is still unclear, but the effects of the incident are already evident. All the three major carriers have updated their contract policies in such a way that a customer can exchange even their already-replaced and supposedly safe Note 7 for any other phone of their choice as long as the model is priced equally or less.


Verizon's exchange offer is now active, starting today (October 8), and Sprint has declared that the same offer will remain active until the investigation concludes. If it is found that Samsung is really guilty of sending explosive devices once again to its customers, the steps that will be taken in reaction to that info are unclear at this point of time. If you already have a Note 7, we recommend at least checking out the other options, but if you are planning to buy one or if you are a diehard fan, just wait till things become a bit more clear.

Gear VR

 
Just as previously announced, the Samsung Gear VR headset for the company's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge smartphones is now available to buy in the US. Not only that, but it can also be found in stock, both at Best Buy and at Samsung's own online store. 


This version of the Gear VR, dubbed Innovator Edition, will only work with the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge unlike the original Gear VR which was tailor-made for the Galaxy Note 4.

The virtual reality headset has been up for pre-order in the US since April, and it's also been launched in Japan. Hopefully it will get a wider release across the world soon, now that both the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge are up for grabs pretty much everywhere. Gear VR Innovator Edition costs about $199.99.

Galaxy A8

 

Finally, Samsung Galaxy A8 is now official, the Korean giant has just revealed the device's specifications and photos. The handset is now listed on the Korean manufacturer's China website and we can finally say that the company's thinnest phone to date is a reality and relieve ourselves of the sea of information that has been bombarding the rumor mill.

 

The Samsung Galaxy A8 has a metal frame with a curvature very similar to that of the Galaxy S6, but the glass on the back has been replaced by aluminum, as is typical for the A-series. The handset has a profile of just 5.9mm and packs a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, yet still manages to keep things on the light side weighing in at 151 grams quite modest for a phablet.

 

Galaxy A8

 

Inside the A8, there is a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, with one cluster of Cortex-A53 cores working at 1.0 GHz and another ticking at 1.5 GHz. RAM is 2GB, onboard storage can be either 16GB or 32GB and there is also a microSD card slot. The memory expansion slot is shared with the second SIM slot so you can't get both dual-SIM and microSD at the same time, though.

 

In terms of connectivity the Samsung Galaxy A8 offers 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with Glonass and Beidou support, as well as NFC.

The camera setup consists of a 16MP main shooter, which, according to previous rumors is not identical to the one in the S6 and S6 edge and has a reduced pixel size of 1.0 µm to conserve space. It still has OIS and a bright f/1.9 aperture.

 

Another high-end feature present in the Galaxy A8 is a fingerprint reader, just like the flagship models. The unit is powered by a 3,050 mAh battery and Samsung promises 304 hours of standby time. As far as we currently know, color options include white, black and gold.

Ending all rumors and speculations, Samsung has indirectly confirmed the existence of two things yesterday. The first is of course Bixby; the digital AI based voice assistant, which will presumably debut with the Galaxy S8. Samsung Pay Mini is the second premature revelation that was made, confirming the existence of the independent online payment service.


As you can probably guess, Samsung Pay Mini is a minimalistic version of Samsung Pay. It can only be used to make payments via the internet on websites, unlike its bigger brother Samsung Pay, which has a much larger scope in that department. The voice assistant Bixby will work in tandem with the payment service to presumably enable voice-based financial transactions.



Even though we are stating that these have been confirmed by Samsung themselves, they are not yet "official" in the true sense of the term. The "confirmations" were gathered from the Samsung Pay Beta page on the company's own website, after these two were mentioned in certain references. We are excited to see Bixby in action and check out at least some of what the AI assistant can do when Samsung (reportedly) reveals the S8 at the MWC Barcelona in February.

Just when you thought that Samsung was getting out of the rut that the exploding Galaxy Note 7 had dropped the company into last year, they are now facing another predicament which is giving them a lot of bad reputation once again. Lee Jae-yong has recently been detained and questioned in order to find a link in between him and the infamous influence-peddling scandal involving impeached President Park Geun-hye and her friend, Choi Soon-sil. In fact, the South Korean prosecutor's office had gone as far as petitioning for an arrest warrant to incarcerate Samsung's future Chairman.


Fortunately for Samsung, the Seoul Central District Court did not feel that the warrant was necessary and therefore, Jae-yong is still a free man (sort of!). According to the court, since Lee Jae-yong is not allowed to leave South Korea until everything regarding the scandal and its relation to him is settled, imprisonment is an unnecessary step at this point of time. In fact, vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong was let go even from the detention centre, right after the court announced its verdict. Although this is definitely good news for Samsung, things as a whole are looking a little dim for the company and its leaders until this scandalous storm blows over.

The Galaxy J7 Prime had started to receive the security patch for the month of February just yesterday and today, the same update is rolling out to the J5 Prime. Both updates feature no major changes or improvements apart from filling in the security gaps in the base Android build.


The updates will bring build version G610FDDU1AQA2 for the Galaxy J7 Prime and G570MUBU1AQA3 for the Galaxy J5 Prime. Both packages will land on your devices via OTA within the next few days.


In other news, the next iterations of these two devices, aka the Galaxy J5 (2017) and the Galaxy J7 (2017) are speculated to be released this March with mid-range specs. If you are interested in the specs of the J7 (2017), check it out here. The J5 (2017) will also have similar specs as the J7 (2017), except for a weaker SD 617 chip and a smaller 5.2-inch 720p display.
