Looks like a photo of the HTC One was leaked, featuring its new front panel. Evleaks, which has a history of accurate disclosures, has revealed the photo and it might just be the real thing.
HTC made over its popular smartphone and replaced the three-button combo with just a back and a home button. Moreover, it now has two speakers on both ends, which should make multimedia experience a lot satisfactory.
On the other hand, the new HTC One will feature a 4.7" 1080p standard display with 468 pixels per inch. Considering the leaked photo and some previous reports, the HTC One will run on Krait quad core Qualcomm APQ8064 chipset and 2 GB RAM. It might also feature HTC Sense 5.0 for its user interface, instead of Android 4.2 as earlier hinted.
In addition, Flicker was abuzz with a photo that was allegedly taken by the HTC One with its 13MP cam, which is also said to feature "ultrapixels". There will be concurrent events to possibly launch the HTC One on the 19th in New York and London.
Samsung's Mobile US Twitter account has posted this picture showing what appears to be a smartphone. Yes, you have guessed, it's the Galaxy S IV that will be announced this Thursday.
It looks almost exactly the same round design as the leaked photos we saw yesterday. But what we do miss is the speaker, camera and of course the level sensors.
The Galaxy S4 is most likely to have the Smart Scroll feature that lets the phone sense a user's eye movements to scroll up and down. This, along with the Smart Pause was reported on the NY Times more or less a week ago, which somehow makes it a bit credible. It will feature an Exynos Octa made by Samsung in place of the previously and widely-rumored Snapdragon chipset. A future upgrade to Snapdragon is also possible. It may also have a plastic (polycarbonate) build, which is being panned by some supporters who are expecting an aluminum exterior. These are only some of the more credible features that the S4 will and may have.
Wow, thanks to XDA, the sdk for one of the best camera features is available for download, only works with ROOTED Galaxy Nexus at this time. Droid-life has put together a list of instructions for easy installation.
1. Download the 4.2Camera.zip (mirror) file.
2. Place the zip file on the root of your phone's storage.
3. Reboot into your recovery.
4. Just in case, make a backup.
5. Flash the 4.2Camera.zip file. (No need to wipe anything)
6. Once installed, reboot your phone.
If you have any questions, please head over the Xda Developers forum at the link below.
One of those benchmarks was AnTuTu and the team behind the app did some digging and claims that the G900 is the Galaxy S5. The benchmark detected a 16MP camera (5,312 x 2,988) - not 13MP as the current S4 (and its Snapdragon 800-powered Advance version) or the Galaxy J. That's also the resolution of the leaked photo.
Other info from EXIF reveals that the camera had an f/2.2 aperture and a focal length of 4.6mm. Assuming the camera lens will be 28mm equivalent in 35mm terms equivalent, the sensor size comes in at 1/2.5" - the size of the 20MP in the Nokia Lumia 1520.
There is indeed some speculation that since the photo has 16:9 aspect ratio, the full resolution of the sensor could be 21MP (for a 4:3 sensor).
Anyway, the phone that did the benchmarks was G900F, while this one is G900V. If Samsung keepsits naming convention straight, this would be the Galaxy S5 for Verizon.
Whether that will be the 16MP ISOCELL camera we heard about or a regular shooter, we'll have to wait and see.
DayFrame is a photo frame / dock app with a focus on voice commands. It's a simple idea brought up to date with the latest in social photos and JellyBean's awesome voice recognition.
DayFrame's outstanding feature is an always up-to-date photostream of friends, family, and interests gathered together from your favorite social networks.
Spend less time flipping through apps and enjoy pictures in your real world. DayFrame pulls from several sources, mixing personal moments with shared art and memes so it's always fresh and interesting.
But the KILLER difference is voice-command button on the front of the slideshow. Need to look something up? Send a message? Now just tap and say it. Want to comment on a friend's picture? No problem - speak and send! Now that's a dock app!
It's very useful for repurposing older Android tablets: place one in the kitchen and let it run as a voice-controlled home kiosk and conversational photo frame!
It's still alpha but the basics are pretty solid and in place.
- - Continuous loop of multiple photostreams
- - "Speak & send" comments

- - Browseable galleries w/ photo details
- - Clock, date, weather, alarm & power status
- - Likes, comments, & share

Google just launched a new Photo Sphere viewing widget that you can add to ANY website. Check out this example by +Colby Brown (https://goo.gl/BbEpS) and see instructions here: https://developers.google.com/panorama/web
There's little difference from what has been on https://www.gopano.com/ for years, With a GoPano Plus, you can shoot this types of photos and movies from any camera and share them via the web. In fact +Controlled Capture Systems has a USB system on sale at their website.
I found that the large photo sphere images become difficult to navigate around when on a mobile device that uses swiping with fingers. As you try to swipe down the page you can get a bit stuck when just the images moves.
