Spartan

 

Today, at MWC 2015 press event, Microsoft demonstrated the Project Spartan web browser running on a Lumia 930 and also mentioned that the upcoming Windows 10 Preview build will ship with the latest browser as well.

 

Project Spartan will replace Internet Explorer as the default web browser in Windows 10 and early benchmarks show it to be really fast.

HTC


HTC was rumored to release it's first Android Wear Smartwatch, or its first Smart Wearable device. According to the latest reports apparently, the company has decided not to try to compete with LG, Samsung, Motorola and others, and has scrapped its Smartwatch project.

 

A report published on Friday, suggests that the rising costs of producing the watch was one of the reasons behind HTC's decision to cancel it. In addition, it is believed that the watch being devised by the company lacked any innovation or special design that would allow it to challenge the competition.

 

The smartwatch market is becoming more and more crowded, with Asus recently joining the group. Right now, there is a heavy air of anticipation as Apple's long awaited iWatch is expected to be unveiled on September 9th. As usual with Apple, the expectations are extremely high. While it is probable that Apple's timepiece will see the light of day this coming Tuesday, the product will probably not be made available to consumers until next year.

Galaxy S6

 

Latest Reports suggests that Samsung is working on designing the Galaxy S6 from scratch, the team gave the S6 a codename "Project Zero", and some unnamed "insiders" have allegedly come forward and shared a few of its specs.

 

The screen resolution will be QHD (2560x1440), just like that of the Note 4, which is hardly a surprise. The exact display size is still a mystery, though, possibly because Samsung execs haven't yet decided on it.

 

The rear camera will apparently be borrowed from the Galaxy Note 4 too, being a Sony-made IMX240. What's still up for debate over at Samsung HQ is whether to go for a 16 MP module or a 20 MP one. In either case, hopefully it will come with optical image stabilization.

 

Galaxy S6

 

The S6 will pack a selfie snapper 5 MP front camera, matching the sensors in the recently unveiled Galaxy A series. Storage-wise, Samsung seems ready to move to 32GB as the new base level so no more 16GB model. Handsets with 64 or 128GB built-in storage will also be offered, and we assume the microSD expansion will stick around too.

 

In terms of chipset, the Galaxy S6 will be powered by an Exynos 7420, which is on track to be the company's first SoC with active 64-bit support. The Exynos 5433 in the Galaxy Note 4 is also technically 64-bit, but Samsung has only enabled 32-bit support for it until now. That might have something to do with the fact that Android will only work with 64-bit chipsets starting with version 5.0 Lollipop. Galaxy S6 is expected Early Next year.

Samsung foldable

 

Earlier this year we have reported that Samsung has officially announced that it's building on a bendable/foldable smartphone for this year. Well, it looks like we are getting really close to see this device on markets, it packs codename "Samsung Project Valley" and it has faced some delays and expected to be ready to launch by January,2016.

 

Samsung is reportedly testing both Snapdragon 620 and 820 for the phone. It doesn't become clear if that's for two separate versions of the phone or just looking for the most suitable chipset. Either way, it will have 3GB of RAM.

 

Samsung Project Valley

 

The battery will be non-removable, as the Korean will have to design a custom battery for this device but Samsung Project Valley will allegedly have a microSD slot. The screen will certainly be OLED, there are no bendy LCDs.

Stay tuned for more info regarding Samsung Project Valley and this whole new series of foldable devices coming from Samsung very soon.

If you are thinking about the upcoming Mass Effect game, then you probably do not know about Google's ongoing work where the internet giant is planning to bring the Chrome OS and the Android OS together as one. Although Google has not yet made it official, Project Andromeda is very much alive and probably has the alternate name of Fuchsia.


Fuchsia will expand Google's reach to devices of all kind; be it fully-fledged computers or advanced mobile devices. If you are wondering whether Android will be discontinued in the wake of this new OS, it won't be, at least not exactly anyway! Although Andromeda will eventually replace Android as the base OS, the latter will probably be retained as a legacy API within the OS.


The main advantage which Fuchsia will bring over the Android OS is its ability to simultaneously provide updates to all devices running on it. It could potentially eliminate the Android fragmentation issues, ensuring better security and uniformity across multiple devices. Reports indicate that Google is testing out Andromeda on the next gen Qualcomm flagship SD 835 SoC. Whether that means the first Fuchsia powered device will be released in 2017 or not, remains to be seen.

Today Google announced that they will be taking initiatives to help raise fund for special needs project and for children who are in need of special schooling. The company will donate $1 for each purchase made with Android Pay between now and December 31st, amounting up to a total of $1 million. Additionally, the company will double that money - that's $2 for the purchases made via Google Pay on Black Friday. To do this Google.org and Android Pay have teamed up with DonorsChoose.org (an organisation dedicated to make sure that teachers and schools have all the required tools to educate all types of children).


As per Google, the Android Pay is available at over a million locations across the United States, so now you have plethora of options to buy what you want, and contribute to a good cause. In order to set up Android Pay on your device, you will first need a device that has support for NFC payments. You can get this feature in any new mid-range and top-tier smartphone, except the OnePlus 2. To get started, install Android Pay from Google Play, save your credit or debit card on file, and you're ready to roll.

spartan web browser

 

Surprisingly, The upcoming most-needed Project Spartan web browser by Microsoft will support Extensions, in the same way as Google Chrome. The development team behind Project Spartan has confirmed the news on Twitter.

 

Extensions will arrive to Project Spartan via a future update. Details on the nifty feature are yet to be revealed. Reportedly, Microsoft is reviewing options that will allow developers of Chrome extensions to port their creations to Spartan with no hassles. Such a move will help Microsoft quickly build a significant catalogue of extensions for its newly announced offspring.

Project Spartan is arguably as significant an announcement as Windows 10 itself. The browser will be part of the latest OS by Microsoft for both mobile and desktop devices.
