Samsung and LG enjoyed the limelight with their premium smartphones. Now the time is heading towards HTC. They are going to showcase the next flagship device with a very powerful snapper.


"We can confidently say that HTC will have a very, very compelling camera experience," said Chief Financial Officer Chialin Chang on Thursday during an interview at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. He also added the follwing - "We're making this comment after we've seen what's going on in the market."


When One M9 was launched last year, there were concerns about its camera, and this time with the rumoured One M10 they are planning to find a solution to this.


The next smartphone and the Vive virtual reality gadget are the steps taken by HTC to revive their brand as a buzz creator. The Taiwanese company has been going through tough times with losses getting reported continuously in three quarters.


More about Vive


HTC garnered larger presence in the MWC events mostly for its Virtual Reality system called Vive (co-produced by game developer Valve). This would cost $799 and advance orders will be taken from 29th February.


As per Wang, as there is coupling of the two wireless controllers with the Vive, it puts this system in a better position when compared with Oculus. The Vive lets you to get up and move around in a restricted space, when the Oculus makes users stay still. Consumers are savvy enough to catch the difference and find the benefit.


More about the smartwatch


HTC's fitness tracker device - the UA Band has been getting very good traction in the market and because of this they are increasing the production number.


The executives from HTC informed that they'd need to figure out the positioning of the smartwatch when it comes to join other smart devices offered by HTC. As per Wang's words -
"When HTC comes out with a smartwatch, we will turn the industry on its head."

Till now, the rumor mill has produced news that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will feature 6GB of RAM, a 5.8-inch touchscreen (mostly probably keeping the QHD resolution), a 12 MP primary snapper, and 64 or 128GB of storage space (might go up to 256GB).


Recently another update came into the limelight. As per a new report, the Note 6 will have IP68 certification. This essentially means that the Note 6 will be dustproof and the water resistance will be at par with the Galaxy S7 - capacity to withstand submerging in water with 1.5m depth for close to 30 minutes.


The phone will supposedly boast an iris scanner, as per a new news released earlier today from an interesting import of this smartphone into India. Contrary to what has been with the earlier versions of this smartphone series, this new Note 5 will be available in the European market. The handset could be released as early as June, as per the opinion of certain analysts. That being said, Samsung could also follow the general schedule for Note launches and unveil it in late August or early September of this year. Right now it is indeed quite tough to predict the Korean giant's course of action.

Evan Blass, a tipster posted a tweet on Friday, disclosing that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released in the U.S. on Friday, March 11th. We anticipate that the latest flagship smartphone will be announced on February 21st during Samsung's Unpacked 2016 event. This is also the day before the 2016 Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona.


As per the latest speculations surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S7, it will feature a 5.1-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. According to user's location the device will be backed by either the Snapdragon 820 chipset (US. and China) or the Exynos 8890 SoC (for the rest of the world) developed in-house. There will be 4GB RAM is along with 64GB built-in storage as revealed in a recently conducted AnTuTu benchmark test. The camera in the back will be of 12 MP and the front one will have 5MP.


During the release of Galaxy S7, it is expected that the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge with larger screen will also be made available. This variant will feature a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution display. Some are saying that the Galaxy S7 series will get couple of features initially found on 2014's Samsung Galaxy S5 that that were not available in 2015. For example: a microSD slot, IP67 certification (proof of protection from dust and water), and a replaceable battery.



 



By now, the entire world knows about the Note 7's safety failure and even then, quite a number of the customers who had bought the phone are refusing to give it up. While Samsung and the carriers are trying to persuade everyone to exchange the potentially explosive Note 7, a few new reports have also emerged from different sections of the globe that even some of the phones in the S7-series are catching fire spontaneously. As these reports have given rise to confusion and fear among its customer base, Samsung has decided to come out with a statement which officially establishes the S7-lineup as completely safe to use under normal conditions.


"Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident."


If you are planning to buy a smartphone this holiday season, will you be opting for a Samsung?

While most users are eagerly waiting to get their Android devices updated to Marshmallow, there are some still stuck on KitKat. For example, Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 has not yet got any OS update, although last year it was launched with the Android 4.4. Hence, an owner of this tablet finally used Twitter to get the answer from Samsung's arm in the UK about a Lollipop or Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4.

 



The response from the Korean giant was "no". This tablet will never see an OS upgrade. So no Android 5.0, 5.1 or 6.0 for the device. This essentially means support for this tab has terminated from Samsung's point of view. It's an interesting news, especially considering that the not much newer Galaxy Tab S 8.4 has at least Lollipop. This was done way back in April and it seems Tab Pro won't have the same luck.


As a final word of advice, just remember that this information might only be valid for tablets sold in the UK, as it's Samsung's UK branch delivering this disappointing news. That said it is almost certain that there won't be any OS update for Tab Pro in any other region.

At the CES 2016, Lenovo has officially declared the end of Motorola as a brand name in the smartphone business. Although the news may make some of us feel a tinge of sadness as the name "Motorola" itself is iconic as well as nostalgic for many of us, the decision wasn't exactly a surprise. Lenovo bought the company from Google back in 2014 with the hopes of gaining a firm foothold in the mobile phone industry by using Motorola's popularity.


Lenovo further stated that the Motorola team will still be making phones, but the branding will change to Lenovo instead. However, the famous "M" logo is not going away. We think that this decision of keeping the logo even after doing away with the brand name was made so as to win over the loyal fan base that Motorola has been supported by, over the years.


Back in 2005, Motorola was the biggest name in the phone business and everyone wanted a Moto Razr V3. The company lost ground since, as Samsung and Apple muscled in with Android and iOS respectively. After falling from a great height, the ownership of the company changed hands multiple times and finally at Lenovo, it seems that the struggling brand name is coming to an end.

 


android lollipop

 

We all are waiting for Google's Next Android version which will be called Android 5.1 "Lollipop", it's rumored to be released as an OTA update for the nexus line-up very soon. Today, HTC's VP of Product Management said on his twitter account that Android 5.1 will be released in March.

 

He used Twitter to tell an inquiring HTC One Google Play Edition owner that a bug fix he was waiting for would be rolled out as part of "Google's next MR, which is in March".

 

"MR" stands for "maintenance release", and from what we've heard so far Android 5.1 promises to be just that and nothing more. So there's a high likelihood that Versi was in fact referring to this version in his tweet.
