An image of the Galaxy S4 Mini model appeared on twitter yesterday after it was listed on the Samsung support website.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy S4 Mini is expected to have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD 960 × 540 display with a pixel density of 256ppi. It is also said to have a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and is running the latest version of Android, 4.2.2.
The Galaxy S4 mini is expected to be launched during summer in June / July.
We have heard a bit about the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, but now proof was obtailed by SamMobile. SamMobile had discovered that Samsung is going to change some of its lettering for model numbers in the coming months. After some research, it appears that the new numbers are already appearing on at least one page in Samsung's Internet ecosystem, but the pages they have not yet been published.
Here's an example.
Galaxy Tab 3 (8.0) 16GB 3G (SM-T3100****** - White) Week 27 (Week of July 1)
Galaxy Tab 3 (8.0) 16GB Wi-Fi (SM-T3110****** - White) Week 24 (Week of June 10)
We have no idea what the prices will be for these devices yet, but we will keep you posted.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has being approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
As far as the hardware specs of the S4 Zoom are concerned, nothing has been announced (evidently), but rumors are suggesting that it will feature a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, a 1.6 GHz CPU (of unknown make), 8GB of storage (expandable via a microSD slot), and a 1,900 mAh battery.
As far as the camera department is concerned, rumors are claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom will boast a 16MP rear facing camera with 10x optical zoom.
The Korean company is believed to announce the Galaxy S4 Zoom as well as other smartphones at its special London event on June 20.
An surprise Samsung SM-G7102 come to the FCC for testing and it is user agent profile is on Samsung's site. The G7102 is definitely an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean smartphone having a 5.25" 720p screen.
Regardless of the relatively low pixel density from the screen (288ppi), the processor clockspeed shows up as 2.3GHz, which could simply be a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset. It's a pretty big device, calculating 147 x 75.1mm.
The FCC paperwork don't emerge and express it, but Samsung SM-G7102 seems to become a dual-SIM device. What this means is it'll most likely launch in East Asia first, possibly like a low-cost option to the twin-SIM Universe Note 3.
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.
