Galaxy S6

 

Latest Samsung's flagship devices were quite successful in terms of sales and build quality, as the Korean Giant is finally switching from Plastic to Metal, just like HTC. Various reports on the Web claim that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 will be redesigned from scratch to keep the Korean OEM on top in terms of sales. Today, we also got its main Preliminary Specifications!

 

The Chinese portal cnmo.com suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have already been spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark. The numbers shown in the leaked screenshot show that the Samsung Galaxy S6 may contain a 5.5-inch display with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. And if the screenshot is correct, it appears that Samsung will make use of the 64-bit architecture.

The Galaxy S6 might ship with the 1.8 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU. It also could feature an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage. The S6 may have a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Samsung will annouce the device on Early 2015 and set for release later Q1,2015 if all goes well.

 

Samsung Galaxy S6 Specs [Leaked]

 



Apparently there has been a business arrangement made in between Nokia Technologies, Microsoft, HMD Global and Foxconn that will see Nokia come back into the smartphone business under HMD Global, a fellow Finnish corporation. However, Nokia will enjoy significant control over the handsets manufactured and branded under its name. Nokia will also become a board member within HMD, in addition to setting "mandatory brand requirements and performance provisions." If you are a Nokia fan, we have more good news for you because Arto Nummela will become the head of HMD as a result of this arrangement. Nummela currently holds the position of VP at Microsoft, but hails originally as an executive of Nokia back in the day.


Nokia was the pioneer and at one point, had enjoyed the number one position in the phone business for years at a stretch. Customers used to (many still do) trust the company for quality, innovation, service and durability and it would be interesting to see if this joint venture can bring the same things to consumers with their upcoming Android smartphones. Since HMD Global is basically run by ex-Nokia executives, the chance of that happening seems good right now. Things aren't looking good for Microsoft though as this news once again shows that the mighty software giant is almost on the verge of giving up on their smartphone business.

2016 is the year that has given the hopes to the Nokia fans owing to its return to the smartphone arena. As per the terms of buyout by Microsoft, the Finnish giant's mobile business could not compete with Microsoft and hence didn't manufacture any smartphone under the Nokia brand. That agreement became void on December 31, 2015 and the fans can quite excited by the sheer imagination of what could happen in the future. One probable smartphone for a 2016 release came into limelight in leaked images before a few weeks and now once again different set of pictures of the same device have found their way to the internet.


If there is one sure shot information that can be told about the design of the smartphone, then we'd say that the device is quite boxy. This is not in a negative way, especially taking into account the all-metal body, crossed only by a pair of antenna lines on the back. Other device controllers that can be spotted on the phone are a volume adjuster on the left side and a power button below the device. On the other side, we can see a well isolated cover, most likely a space for the SIM tray and microSD card slot. That can mean IP rating, but let's not go overboard.


It is also quite compelling to see that the newly released pics of the phone seems to be from different unit, as doesn't have prototype marks of the first one. This actually adds to the genuineness of the leak and eventually would mean that the smartphone is essentially one of the three new Nokia smartphones going for a release this year.

Whenever we hear the name "Samsung," we are reminded of electronic consumer products like televisions, smartphones, air-conditioners, etc. Skin care is probably the last thing that comes to mind! However, the tech giant is about to change that with what is to be the first of its skincare products; the Lumini.



A part of Samsung's experimental projects in the C-Labs, the Lumini is going to be unveiled at the CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The skin-scanner will photograph the user's face and then use the built-in skin-analytics software to determine the quality of the skin and the problems on it, before sending the information to a dedicated application on the user's smartphone. Along with the information, the app will also advise you on how to treat the problems found on your skin. You can even chat with a dermatologist via the app for a more professional and customized opinion on the matter.



The Lumini isn't the only skin care product coming out of the C-Labs though, because the S-Skin will be accompanying it. This one is a microneedle patch, armed with a skin-scanner and LED lights to keep the quality of your skin at optimum level through injection, hydration and enhanced absorption. Would you buy any of the experimental skin-care products from Samsung if it was available near you?

We knew that something like this was coming but now we have confirmation. The Galaxy S8 has dethroned two flagship devices from their respective number one positions in the AnTuTu Benchmark test rankings. With a score of 205284, the S8 has officially dethroned both the OnePlus 3T (162423) as the number one Android handset on the list and the iPhone 7 Plus (181807) as the number one handset across all platforms. Check out the video here and see it happen live.

 

If you are wondering which chip the S8 in question is using, we are not entirely sure. It could be the Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895, but whichever one it is, we doubt the results will differ by much on either. What we can tell you is that this is the Galaxy S8 that is being tested in the video, as made evident by the SM-G950 model number and the "Galaxy S8" confirmation given by AnTuTu at the end of the video. Now that we have a new king of benchmarks among us, would you be buying it when it comes out in April?

Samsung has managed to keep the Galaxy S9 and S9+ surprisingly under the lid this year, as compared to any other year in recent memory. Not that there is much left to the imagination really, given that we know most things about it already and have seen enough renders to know what it will look like. Even then, there have hardly been any videos or images that have so far shown the S9 or the S9+ live. We may have seen a dummy unit, but it's still not the real thing. Nevertheless, we have more renders for you today and this time it comes from Evan Blass of @evleaks himself.


Aside from confirming certain facts that we knew already (like the dual camera on the S9+), the leaked render unveils a new color to us, the Lilac Purple. In case you are not yet familiar with the most probable specs of the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+, do take a look at the following highlights.


6.2-inch (S9+)/5.8 -inch (S9) Super AMOLED 1440p Infinity Display

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC (US and China)/Exynos 9810 (international version)

4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (S9)/6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage (S9+)

Dual rear camera (12mp + 12mp at f/2.4 and f/1.5) for the S9+ and just a single rear camera for the S9

HTC M8

 

HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi has announced in a tweet that Android 4.4.3 is coming to Verizon's version of the HTC One M8 on Wednesday, September 10th. In addition to the higher release number, the over-the-air update will also include the long-awaited Extreme Power Saving mode.

This update will land a week after the feature arrived, ironically, on Verizon's version of the HTC One M7. With this OTA, a feature that debuted with the global launch of the M8 will have managed to hit every other version of the handset and last year's flagship before making it to Verizon's. Even for the Big Red, that's something to be proud of.
