The next flagship smartphone from Huawei is coming and if the rumors have any truth to them, it's going to be a very capable device. Leaks on Weibo seem to be indicating that the Huawei Mate 9 will be powered by the manufacturer's in-house HiSilicon Kirin 960 Octa-core 64-bit processor and six gigabytes of RAM. There will allegedly be different versions of the Mate 9 and the 6GB RAM version will sport 256GB of internal storage to go with all that memory and processing power. There could also be a more modest version of the smartphone that will sport the same chipset, but 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. All versions might also be powered by a big 4,000mAh battery.


Camera has been the highlight of the Mate 9 in all recent rumors since they have partnered up with Leica, the German camera maker for providing a rumoured dual camera setup at the back. The two 20-megapixel sensors from Leica will supposedly work together to provide stunning details even in low light, thanks to the f/2.0 aperture. The 5.9-inch (QHD resolution) metal-clad phablet will run on Android 7.0 and the OEM will make sure that customers get a LOT of colors to choose from while buying the smartphone. Apart from the 256GB/6GB version ($700/4700 yuan) and the 128GB/4GB version ($580/3899 yuan), there will also be a more affordable 64GB/4GB version ($480/3199 yuan) as well.

Cloud storage is the future because all physical mediums of storage are subject to corruption and failure over the course of time. In recognition of this fact, a number of companies have started offering cloud storage services for storing photos, videos, documents and other file formats for a price. Yogile is the latest addition to that list of cloud storage services, but it claims to offer more for less through simplicity of the interface and fair pricing.


No Need to Sacrifice on Quality


Some cloud services compress the photos to make them smaller and that translates to a significant loss in picture quality and details. Even if the photos are decompressed by the service when the client downloads it again, some details might still be lost permanently. Yogile simply eliminates the chance of that ever happening by storing every photo in its original resolution and size.


Easy and Secured Sharing


Yogile allows direct sharing of the photos and albums from the easy to use interface itself. This means that you and all the other family members will be able to add to the albums simultaneously from any device by emailing the photos to the specific email address assigned to each album. If you want to keep a particular album secret or private, nobody will see the album except you and password protection is always an option for restricting access to just the adults in the family as well.


Photo Editing Options



Although it isn't the most groundbreaking feature of Yogile, it's nice to know that the user can do basic editing right from the app itself. It even has a number of decent filters for users to experiment with.


Accessible Across All Major Platforms


You will be able to access features of the Yogile photo storage service from Android, iOS and Windows devices, without sacrificing on any of its features.


Developed by Monon B.V., Yogile offers a simple but effective cloud storage service for photos at an affordable rate of only $44.99/month, which comes to less than even $4/month. If you are looking for a dedicated and secure cloud storage option for all your photos, there's no reason to not recommend the Yogile app, especially because of the competitive pricing.

Microsoft Office 365 subscribers will receive unlimited OneDrive cloud storage going forward. OneDrive subscription plans that include the sweet cloud storage option kick off at $6.99 per month.

 

office 365

 

The new arrangement will begin rolling out to users with Home, Personal, and University accounts beginning today. OneDrive for Business customers will have to wait until 2015 to get the treatment. Unlimited cloud storage is bound to make the already capable Microsoft Office 365 an even more attractive proposition.

Galaxy S6


Samsung promised to use a new UFC 2.0 storage in Galaxy S6 that will increase the data read/write speed 2.7x faster than normal storage. UFC 2.0 uses "Command Queue" technology (as seen in Solid State Drives) for accelerating the speed of command execution. The device has no microSD, so the the performance test will run on its internal storage.

 

Here's the benchmark results for the data read/write on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

 

S6

 

As you can see, the new UFC 2.0 storage brought quite an improvement over the previous generation smartphones and the smartphone's performance could have been seriously compromised if a microSD read or write was also in the equation. We know that cheap microSD storage is ideal for backup purposes and that is hardly going to change anytime soon, but perhaps it's a fair guess that its days within high end smartphones are numbered.

Samsung disappointed quite a few buyers by limiting the Samsung Galaxy Note 5's storage at 64GB. It added to the frustration, as there was no miscoSD slot in the flagship device. The company has unveiled a special Winter Edition Galaxy Note 5, the only Note smartphone with 128GB of internal storage.


The new Note 5 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super Amoled display and inclusion of the stylus can make this note a threat to the Apple's iPhone 6S Plus, which already comes in a 128GB variant and features a 5.5-inch screen. But, the Winter Edition needs to connect with consumers outside of Korea to boost the Samsung's sluggish sales numbers.


This device is powered by company's own Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, and backed by 4GB of RAM.. But, note that the microSD slot is still not available. Other features include a 16-megapixel snapper in the back with OIS (f/1.9 aperture), a 5-megapixel camera in the front. The battery will be non-removable and it'll be of 3000 mAh.


It can connected via 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard connectivity option. This winter edition will also have a fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Winter Special Edition is available at KRW 999,900 and is being sold via SKT and KT mobile carriers.

As rumor has it, we are now less than two months away from the official release date (February 21st) for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. It is only natural that two of the biggest and most anticipated Android phones of 2016 will have a lot of buzz around them. Some of those "leaked reports" are expecting the Samsung flagships to be waterproof as well as have IP67 certified dustproof builds.


The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge were criticized by a lot of users for their weak batteries and Samsung seems to have heard those criticisms with diligence. According to Evan Blass or @evleaks, 3000 mAh and 3600 mAh will be the capacity of the non-removable batteries on the S7 and the S7 Edge respectively. He further states that the S7 will go from 0-100% charge in just 2 hours, while the S7 Edge will do the same in 2.2 hours.


It will excite customers around the world to know that the beloved and missed MicroSD card slot is rumoured to make a return with the Galaxy S7 series. Another speculation about the two prime Samsung smartphones of the future states the possibility of dual 12.2 megapixel Britecell camera sensors on the back of the phone with f/1.7 lens aperture. Although we are inclined to think that Samsung may opt for its in-house Exynos 8890 SoC over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, it isn't a fact yet.

It was a big disappointment to many of the Samsung fans who were waiting eagerly for the Note 7, when it came with just 4GB of RAM and the same SD 820 SoC seen in the S7-series. However, latest reports seem to be indicating that the Asian markets such as China will actually be getting the 6GB variant after all. The rumors were further bolstered when president of Samsung Mobiles, Koh Dong-jin said, "We are considering launching Note 7 with a 128 GB internal storage capacity for the Chinese market, even though the handset made its global debut with a 64 GB memory,"


Although this statement by Koh Dong-jin does not exactly mention anything about a 6GB RAM variant, he did state further that, "We will continue to accept different needs from each marketplace, and respond by releasing localized products by changing memory capacity or color." As you can probably guess, this strategy is a direct result of stiff competition from Chinese manufacturers like LeEco, Vivo, and Xiaomi. All of this was declared during the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 7 in South Korea with a price tag of 988,900 WON or roughly $897. Apart from the Silver Titanium, Blue coral and Gold Platinum colors, the Note 7 will also be available in Black Onyx from October onwards.

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.

Samsung is gearing up to mass produce the first ever 256GB embedded memory module as a Universal Flash Storage 2.0. Performance is a big advancement over the recent SATA-based solid-state-drives used in high-end PCs.


The UFS memory from Samsung offers ultra-fast speed storage based around their V-NAND flash memory chips. The UFS memory is capable of performing 45,000 input operations and 40,000 output operations each second. The UFS memory is twice the speed of the previous UFS memory type. The latest version uses dual lanes of data transfer to create speeds of 850MB/s which is approximately twice the speed of SATA-based SSDs. For sequential writing, the speed is lower at 260MB/s.


One of the main benefits of the latest version of 256GB UFS memory is that it will better support playback of 4K video content. Tablets now have split screen display technology with 4K video playback that can be combined with a second area of the screen being used to display an app. This tends to push the hardware to the limit. With 4K video, the data read needs to be faster because a 4K video contains so much more compressed image and audio data. This audio/visual data needs to be read, decompressed and played in real-time.


Samsung has just gone into full production of their UFS memory 2.0 chips which will become available later in 2016.

With certain Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6, Samsung has a deal with Microsoft to offer 100 GB of free OneDrive cloud storage with every new device.


The deal to push the free cloud services wasn't just out of kindness on the part of the Redmond company. It is troublesome to move files to another cloud service later, so it provides a type of lock-in for consumers too.


The deal also included pre-installed apps for Word, PowerPoint and Excel on Samsung devices to encourage user adoption of Office 365 subscriptions. The period of coverage for the free storage is likely to be 2 years or longer.


Here's how you get the free 100 GB of cloud storage with OneDrive:


1. Check that your Samsung device comes pre-installed with the app for OneDrive for Android. If it doesn't, download it from the Google Play store.


2. Open the OneDrive app and either login with an existing Microsoft account or register for a new one.


3. Approve the terms and conditions, make a left swipe inside the app, choose 'Settings' and 'Personal' from the menu, and verify that your quote is now 115 GB. This should be 15GB standard free allocation, plus the additional 100GB.


4. If you're already logged into OneDrive, you only need to swipe to the left, and go to 'Settings' and 'Claim your free 100 GB storage' to activate it.


Any eligible devices will now have access to the additional storage for 2 years or more.

 



It seems just yesterday when the Galaxy Note 7 was released and eventually discontinued, but we are now inching closer to the release date of the Galaxy S8. Granted that no date has yet been set in stone, it cannot be more than just a few months away at this point. Today, we have a new report/rumor for you, straight out of China (Weibo) and reported by TechTastic. It states that the S8 will sport 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, along with the upcoming Samsung-manufactured Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.


Some of the other rumors surrounding the S8 include a dual rear camera module, an edge-to-edge pressure-sensitive 2K/4K curved display, a brand new AI virtual assistant and Quick Charge 4.0. It will be interesting to see whether Samsung launches a separate Exynos version of the Galaxy S8 as well, since the Korean giant itself is producing the SD 835 chip for Qualcomm this year. Some reports are also suggesting that there might even be a 6.2-inch version of the S8 next year, but I am not so sure about that!

Now that we already have a pretty good idea about what the Galaxy S8 will look like, leakster @mmdj_china has just leaked the RAM details and the exact release date set for the two smartphones in US and China. Both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ will be sporting 6GB of RAM, at least in China. We think that this will be the same in all regions though, given that the Galaxy C9 Pro recently came out with 6 gigs of RAM. Both devices will have a 64GB and a 128GB variant along with expandable memory card slots.


As far as the release date is concerned, according to the leakster, the S8 series will go on sale in the US on April 14. It was mentioned that in China, the S8 and the S8+ will see release in the 15th week of the year. It is a rather strange way to say that the two devices will be available for purchase form the third week of April. These are the latest developments regarding the Galaxy S8, if you want to see the rest of the specs and rumors, check it out here.

Good news for our Indian readers; the Galaxy S8+ with beastly specs like 128GB ROM and 6GB RAM has now been launched in the country by Samsung. The black-only phones will be up for pre-order on Flipkart from June 2 and will be go on sale from June 9 across all offline and online partners of Samsung. Although it was previously believed that Samsung will keep this version of the smartphone exclusive to South Korea, it seems like the company has changed its plans. Keep in mind though, the 128GB/6GB Galaxy S8+ will set you back by Rs 74,990 or roughly $1165! If you thought the iPhones were expensive in India, Sammy doesn't seem to be too far behind either.


Now that the initial excitement of the news is over, the question is, should you get it? For a premium of Rs 10,000 ($155) more than the price of the regular S8+, you are getting double the storage and 2GB of extra RAM and to be honest, it wouldn't be a bad deal at all, if the S8+ was already not so expensive in the country. Crazy taxes in India make foreign made electronic devices cost way more than they do in the US or just about any other country and the S8/S8+ is no exception to this rule either. Nevertheless, if you can afford it and you wanted a S8+, I don't see why you shouldn't buy one either.

Amazon has a mouth-watering offer on cloud storage - as a part of the Black Friday deals, they are offering unlimited storage. For just $5, one can get one year of unlimited cloud storage, that includes photos, videos, and documents. This price can drop to $1 if the storage will be used only for media.


This comes at a time when Microsoft OneDrive storage was downgraded from unlimited to 1 TB. Meanwhile, the free tier gives only 5GB of storage before users are asked to upgrade. In case of Google Drive to store more than 15 GB, users are asked to make payment.


The reason given by Microsoft for removing its unlimited storage was that some users were uploading their entire movie collections, among other things, and there-by resulting in 14,000 times more than the amount of space used by an average user.


Now let's get back back to Amazon's attractive $5 deal, whose regular price for unlimited storage tier is $54.99. A sweet $50 savings, thanks to this Black Friday deal. In the $1 deal, users are also allowed to upload 15 GB documents apart from the media files.


This hot deal will surely get expired soon. So get your hands on it before deal goes out of stock.

dropbox

 

Dropbox has revamped its Pro plan with more storage, improved link sharing and remote wipe. The Dropbox Pro plan remains at $10 a month (or $100 per year) but you get 1TB of storage for that.

 

Having a Pro account lets you share password-protected links. Sharing links is arguably one of the best features of Dropbox and now you won't have to worry about the link getting in the wrong hands.

 

dropbox pro

 

You can get some extra peace of mind by setting up an expiration date for shared links. You can pick 7 days, 30 days or a custom period. You can also adjust the expiration date later if you change your mind.

 

Another way to share files without giving up too much control over them is by using view-only shared folders. You can enable this for select members so that they always get the latest version of your files but will not be able to change them.

OneDrive

 

Microsoft has increased the amount of free space you get if you use OneDrive on your phone. Previously the free space used to be 15GB but now you'll get 30GB instead.

 

To get the additional space, you will have to install the OneDrive application, if you haven't already, and enable camera uploads, which will automatically upload the photos taken by your phone to OneDrive. This works on iOS, Android, and of course Windows Phone.

 

OneDrive

 

It must be noted that the space is split between 15GB for the main account and 15GB just for camera uploads, so it's not a unified space accessible for everything. Also, the offer is valid till the end of September but is available to new and existing OneDrive users. So if you use OneDrive with camera upload, you should see the additional space.

Although the launch of Nexus 6p didn't exactly follow the disasters faced by previous variants last year, it didn't go smoothly. Those lucky enough to grab the opportunity before the phone got completely sold out online are now wondering about shipment date of the phone owing to the impending delays. For those who wanted to go through the reviews to make up the mind were disappointed with the out of stock label on most of the variants for weeks. Now, it's been almost 2 months since the Nexus 6P (and 5X) launched and it seems Google is finally able to meet the demand.

Right now the Google Store has all the Nexus 6p devices in stock and you are free to choose any kind of color and storage configuration. We actually informed about this a few days ago, but were so elated about the elusive 64GB Frost white model being available that we somehow missed to cover the rest. As we head into the weekend, we just wanted to jog your mind regarding the in-stock Nexus devices (seems to stay like this for sometime).


The Nexus 6P price starts at $500 for the 32GB, $550 for the 64GB, and $600 for will get you the 128GB variant. If you wanted to get the official black case, it is also in-stock.
