Samsung announces two new affordable smartphones on a press release that will feature 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware: the Galaxy Star and the Pocket Neo. It can be recalled that the company has already showcased these two entry-level gadgets in Africa. There is no news as to the exact prices of each but these will surely cater to the low-end market. It is not clear when these will be available either.
The Pocket Neo comes with an 850 MWz processor, 512 MB RAM, expandable memory, 3-inch display and can support two SIMs, GPS and a 2MP rear camera. On the other hand, the Galaxy Star have almost the same features but it will come with a faster processor that clocks in at 1GHz.
Although Samsung has plenty of devices to announce this year, the most anticipated after the S 4 launch is the Galaxy Note 3 and possibly the S 4 Mini, which will all be unveiled hopefully sooner than later.
Fluid animation in your pocket! Touch the screen and create beautiful motion of colorful smoke and water.
Magic Fluids allows for a great deal of customization. You can modify fluid type, color palette, how long it stays on the screen, when colors should change and much more.
Fluid alone is great, but it only gets better. Turn on particles and watch how they move with the fluid and emphasize it's motion. Particles have lots of configuration options as well - shape, size, color and more. You can have more than 15000 particles on the screen, but you better have a strong device if you want to do that!
