HTC One M9

 

It's Here, the first leaked photos of the HTC One M9 (codenamed Hima). Visually very similar to the predecessor, the device is only distinguishable by a different main camera on the back.

 

The square cutout is to house the new 20.7MP sensor which is set to replace HTC's rather unsuccessful attempts at camera innovation. The UltraPixel concept gathered a lot of criticizm for its uninspiring good light performance and lack of 4K video recording and was replaced in the company's upper-midrange, with the flagship to follow.

The HTC One M9 (Hima) is reported to keep the predecessor's screen size and resolution at 5 inches and 1920x1080 pixels, contrary to most of this year's flagships, which are keen to jump on the QHD bandwagon. The Snapdragon 810 will power the device, coupled with 3GB of RAM.

 

Note: The source have removed the Photos as a request from HTC, which adds some authenticity to these photos.

After the two ads which Samsung released recently to highlight their new Super AMOLED displays, most of us are quite convinced that we have already taken our first look at the Galaxy S8, courtesy of the manufacturer itself. However, we still do not have an exact idea about the dimensions of the upcoming flagship. As if to fill in that gap, GSMArena has revealed those dimensions for both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.


If the report is to be believed, then the regular Galaxy S8 will measure 140.14mm x 72.20mm x 7.30mm, while the much larger S8 Plus will have the measurements of 152.38mm x 78.51mm x 7.94mm. In case you are not aware, the S8 Plus will reportedly sport a 6.4-inch display while the size of the regular S8's display will range from anything in between 5.7-inch to 6.2-inch. Both the devices will have a curved/edge display.



What is interesting is that the renders are showing the older micro-USB slot rather than the expected micro-USB Type-C slot. What do you think about the case maker's renders? Are they accurate leaks or just fanciful renders?

We knew that the Galaxy Xcover 4 was coming and now some of its specifications have been revealed by GeekBench. In case you are wondering why we think this is the Xcover 4, notice that the smartphone here sports the model number Samsung SM-G930F, while the Xcover 3 had the model number SM-G388F. Apart from the few specs which we can be picked up from the screenshot, it is expected that the device will also sport a rugged shock-resistant body and IP67 water-resistance rating, just like its predecessor. Also take a look at the earlier leak where the Xcover 4 made its first unofficial appearance at the Wi-Fi Alliance database.



Questions regarding whether or not the device will feature a bigger display remains unanswered at this point. The low-powered quad core processor which we are seeing here is probably a budget-end Exynos chip. There's also 512MB more RAM on this device, as compared to the Xcover 3 Value Edition which had 1.5GB of RAM to boot. The good thing is that both the leaks have confirmed that the phone will come with Android Nougat right out of the box.


If you have any version of the old Xcover 3, feel free to check our firmware section for new updates for the device.

The Galaxy S8 is all but revealed, thanks to a barrage of leaks from various sources on the internet over the last month or so. However, it's still great to get confirmation of those leaks from a reputed source like Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities. Most of what he has mentioned was already known, but he did add a few little details to fill in the gaps.


• The curved Super AMOLED displays on the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ will be of 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch respectively.
• The QHD+ resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels will give the S8 an unconventional 18:9 ratio like the LG G6.
• There will be no physical Home buttons and all sensors will remain on the top bezel of the phone.
• Those sensors will include proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, Infrared blaster, front camera sensor and an iris scanner.
• At the back, there will be the single rear camera, the LED flash, a heart rate sensor and a fingerprint scanner just on the right of the main camera.
• The rear and front cameras will be of 12-megapixels and 8-megapixels respectively.
• Both phones will come in Gold, Silver, Blue, Orchid, Pink, Matter Black and Bright Black color variants, depending on the specific region.
• USB Type-C v3.1 will be there.
• PC Mode via an external dock to connect to a monitor will be included to create a desktop like working environment.
• As always, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip will be powering the two devices in Japan, China and the US, while the Exynos 8895 will power them everywhere else.
• Both devices will feature 6GB of RAM in South Korea and China, but 4GB of RAM everywhere else.
• April 21st is almost certainly the date on which the S7 and the S7 Edge will go on sale in most regions.



That about covers everything. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask us in the comments.

Play Google

 

Google has released a trendy infographic that pegs the best in entertainment, as dropped by the stats in the Play Store. The best in apps, games, movies, TV series and books offered in the Android ecosystem has been listed for the world to see, and some of the top performers are pretty surprising.

 

Check Out the Full Infographic below!

Gear vr

 

Alongside the new Galaxy Note 4 phablet, Samsung is today announcing a new accessory, the Gear VR. The Gear VR is a virtual reality headset powered by the Note 4. Samsung built it in partnership with Oculus, maker of the Oculus Rift, arguably the best VR headset, and recent Facebook acquistion. The company says the Gear VR will be available later this fall for an unspecified price.

 

The Gear VR brings to mind Google's Cardboard project, which uses a smartphone and cheap lenses to provide a basic 3D virtual reality experience.

 

Gear VR

 

The Gear VR uses the Note 4 (and Only the Note 4, it's not compatible with any other smartphone, Samsung or otherwise) for all of its processing and display features. The Note 4 snaps into the Gear VR, in front of dual-lenses that provide the 3D effect. There's a trackpad and back button on the right side of the Gear VR, and a focus adjustment on top. Samsung tells me that it's compatible with Bluetooth gaming controllers, but there aren't any specific controls for your hands at this time. Navigating menus, exploring worlds, and playing games is mostly done with head movements and taps on the side-mounted trackpad.

 

Gear VR

 

Using the Gear VR is very similar to using the Oculus Rift: it's a completely immersive experience that detaches you from your real environment. But unlike the Rift, there are no wires tethering you and the Gear VR to a computer, so you can freely move about and walk around. And since you strap the Gear VR to your head, you don't have to hold up to your face the entire time like Google Cardboard. There is a mode to enable the Note 4's rear camera while wearing the Gear VR, so you can "switch off" the virtual experience and see the real world.

Android 5.0 Lion

 

A Benchmark result of the upcoming Nexus (2014) has been allegedly leaked on the GFXBench application. The leak brought us some of the device's Specifications and another surprise, the big revelation is the final name of the Android version it features Android 5.0 Lion.

 

Nexus 5 2014

 

Take a look at the screenshot above, listing the Nexus 5 (2014) with the following specs:

 

- 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560-pixel (Quad HD) resolution
- Android 5.0 Lion
- Snapdragon 805 running at up to 2.7GHz, Adreno 420
- 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage
- 12-megapixel rear cam, 2-megapixel front shooter

 

 

The "Android 5.0" or as known Now "Android L", final name Lion is referring to the popular Nestlé Lion chocolate candy bar. After Google partnered with Nestle for Android 4.4 KitKat, why not explore the partnership to yet another popular Nestle sweet treat like Lion? This makes sense... but still unconfirmed.

 

Android Lion

 

Let's wait and see, the official release of Android L (Out of Beta) is very soon and Google will announce it's final name then.
