Is this another leaked picture of the Galaxy Note 3? From the picture, taken at a low resolution and unfortunately a bit 'fuzzy, it appears as the next device in the series Notes may have a battery slightly narrower but at the same time little bit longer.
Another detail that is evident as regards the edges and corners of the device, that are sharp and in contrast with the normal lines and the design which we have used to Samsung phones in recent years (although it must be said that the design is very similar to some leaked images of Note 3 revealed in the past ).
Samsung Galaxy Note III is expected to have an octa-core Exynos 5420 or quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 1080p display of 5.7-6″, a 13-megapixel camera possibly with optical image stabilization, LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) connectivity, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with an improved TouchWiz UI.
September will be the month Samsung revealing the Galaxy Note 3.
According to Korean news site ETnews, there are new information suggesting that both the Galaxy S5 and the and the Galaxy Note 4 will offer improved Air View, Air Gesture and Pen Recognition Features.
Synaptics - a key touch chip maker, managed to improve the hovering detection, thus allowing for a greater range, and as a result, features such as Air Gesture and Air View.
Synaptics will supply a touch solution with improved hovering detection and passive pen writing function to Samsung Electronics.
In addition, the stylus pen functionality has been improved as well, and allows the screen to recognize a passive pen point that measures only 2.5pi. This translates into more accurate hand writing.
Synaptics has lowered the manufacturing cost, too. The new product will be lowered of the printing cost as it will be built in a single layer structure not requiring an insulation layer or a bridge. "The new product will provide a variety of additional functions. However, its manufacturing cost will be lowered so as to decrease the burden on customers," said a Synaptics insider. "The device usability and consumer convenience have been enhanced for this product."
Skala View is the companion app to Skala Preview for Mac - the fastest way to send pixel perfect, colour perfect design previews from your Mac to your Android device.
Previewing your design in situ lets you test tap sizes, text sizes, colour, contrast and ergonomics, all at a time where changes can be easily made - during the design process. It closes the loop, meaning you can iterate faster to a better final design.
★ Pixel Perfect
- Skala Preview sends lossless, colour accurate image previews to any Android or iOS device. Previews are pixel perfect. Colours are identical to how the final app or website will look on the device.
- Preview at precisely 100%. Zoom to exactly 200% to view a mdpi design full screen on an xhdpi device. Zooming in shows crisp pixels, not an interpolated, blurry mess.
- Preview designs in portrait or landscape orientation.
- If you're using Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 or newer, Skala Preview can preview your canvas as you edit. No saving, no keyboard shortcuts, just lossless previews in realtime.
- It is the absolute fastest way to preview a design mock up on an Android device.
- If you're using Fireworks, Pixelmator, Acorn, another image editor or an older version of Photoshop, Skala Preview can send images via the clipboard or by dragging files to its dock icon or window.
- The clipboard is sent automatically, so you don't have to break your workflow to send - Just copy something and it'll appear on your device.
- Send to as many devices as you'd like. It's even possible to view different colour blindness testing, orientation or zoom level on multiple devices at once.
- Ensure your design can be used by those with protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia or complete colour blindness.
- Quickly test your design with a variety of display brightness settings.
My Purchases is a free Android app that allows users to view their entire Google Play purchase history with just a few taps, as first reported by Droid Life.
This app bridges the gap and provides the missing overview over your purchased apps, books, music and even devices.
The display of purchased apps depends on how many apps you have purchased. There is a chance that not all items are listed. This is because Google keeps the list limited at some point.
It supports multiple accounts, so if you spread your downloads across different emails, that is not a problem either. If you miss this functionality in Google Play, check it out. For those curious, the paid version removes in-app advertisements.

Hungary and Lesotho are the latest to join the Google Street View. The last time that the app was updated, a total of 50 countries are already included with 350,000 miles of streets and roads in images. It is one of the biggest single updates to happen so far.
Coverage in Poland and Romania has also been expanded and other locations were also included to make sure more people will be able to access the app and find it convenient. Other countries, whose roads and streets have also been added, were also mentioned in the news from the Google blog.
This is useful for those who are interested in virtual tourism and for those who are planning on their itineraries prior to going to a particular city. Street View on Google Maps will surely be relevant to those who love to travel and experience adventures off the beaten path. It is expected to expand to more countries and provide better photos of interesting streets and points of destination and tourism.
