While the Galaxy Note 8 will obviously continue to be the talk of the town for months to come, the thing that must have caught your attention in the headline is most likely "Qualcomm Snapdragon 836!" Although we did see Qualcomm release two flagship chips last year; the SD 820 and the SD 821, it didn't seem like something that they would continue to do in the future as well. However, a new report is suggesting that the SD 836 will be a higher powered version of the present day SD 835 and it will be released by the end of the year.


Allegedly, the Snapdragon 836 will have a CPU clock speed of 2.5GHz and the GPU (which will most likely be the same Adreno 540) will boast of a 740MHz clock speed. If the American version of the Note 8 is powered by the SD 836, then does it mean that Samsung will release a newer Exynos chip with the Note 8? Probably not. Samsung just releases one chipset every year in the premium segment and there have been no indications to suggest that they will take a different route this year. As pointed out by the source itself, all of this should be taken with "a pinch of salt."

TEENA recently certified a device - Samsung SM-W2016 which is essentially a flip phone with the power of the mighty S6.


The flip phone sports a glass back with curves on the side that gives the feeling of the S6 edge. It has two identical screens both inside or outside and 3.9" Super AMOLEDs with 768 x 1,280px resolution (383ppi). That's not as good as the specs offered by S6, but the SM-W2016 measures 120.4 x 61 x 15.1mm, which is not bad for a flip phone. But 200g weight is obviously more than expected. Anyway, the performance is improved with an octa-core processor (supposedly the Exynos 7420) and 3GB of RAM along with 64GB of in-built storage. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop (Samsung is yet to upgrade to Marshmallow).



Just like the screen, the camera also got a demotion. There's an 8MP/1080p primary snapper on the back (with a heart rate sensor) and a 5MP camera to take selfie. I'm quite confident that with a flip you can also use the camera on the back for selfies. The T9 keypad below the screen resembles older design and a SIM switch button placed above, suggests that it might be a dual-SIM phone.

The Snapdragon 820 SoC is right now the most powerful chipset that's powering Android smartphones in the market, but rumor has it that an even more powerful processor is on its way from Qualcomm and it may power the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6. If the rumor is true, then the Galaxy Note 6 might just become the most powerful phablet ever created. If we were to take a cue from Samsung's earlier releases in regard to the Note series, then the Galaxy Note 6 will probably be revealed somewhere in between August to September.


Although nothing has been officially confirmed yet, the SD 823 SoC is supposedly made up of 64-bit class Kryo quad core processors, a Hexagon Digital Signal Processor and the Adreno 530 GPU clocked at 720MHz. While the customers in the US will be able to enjoy the raw power of the 823 SoC (if the rumors are to be believed of course), the international variants will probably be powered by an Exynos processor. We have already seen the trend starting with the S7 and S7 Edge this year.


In other specifications, the Note 6 may sport a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution. It is also rumored to be backed up by 6GB of RAM, but the chances of seeing a 4GB RAM variant is much higher. The S7 has a very good camera and the Note 6 will supposedly see an even more improved camera performance with the help of something that is termed as Super Optical Image Stabilization System. Other standard features like water and dust resistance, along with the hybrid secondary SIM card slot/micro-SD card slot from the S7 series will almost certainly make their way onto the Galaxy Note 6 as well. We will keep you posted on this as things develop.

Changing Power buttons are a reflection of design trends in modern technology. When smartphones first came almost a decade ago, nearly every phone had a power button the top of the device. As screen sizes become bigger, and that top edge went higher and higher in the position beyond the reach of a normal user's hand, the power button re-positioned to the side of the device. When screens grew larger and home buttons went extinct, the power button got built-in fingerprint sensors. And Apple is no different: the iPhone power button experiences the same trends.


So when Apple completely removed the home button, it made two significant changes about the power button, too. First, the power button on the iPhone X is twice as big as its predecessor, so it's always easy to press it. And it now activates Siri when held down, instead of offering the shutdown prompt (the other main function of the iPhone home button). Both of these shifts make sense and was approved by users with open heart. iPhones were getting bigger, and making the button easier to press is a natural extension of that. And as the last major button left on the phone, having the power button trigger Siri was essentially the only option.


It was a difficult-to-adjust change at first, but the difference is a positive one, I think. I use Siri for simple things like setting alarms and adding reminders to return Amazon packages far more than I did to turn off my phone. And putting that function in the power button - which I nearly always have a thumb on when holding my phone, even more so than the home button - makes it even more accessible. Plus, the bigger button is just more enjoyable to press, especially on brand-new devices when the click is still nice and crisp.


HTC M8

 

HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi has announced in a tweet that Android 4.4.3 is coming to Verizon's version of the HTC One M8 on Wednesday, September 10th. In addition to the higher release number, the over-the-air update will also include the long-awaited Extreme Power Saving mode.

This update will land a week after the feature arrived, ironically, on Verizon's version of the HTC One M7. With this OTA, a feature that debuted with the global launch of the M8 will have managed to hit every other version of the handset and last year's flagship before making it to Verizon's. Even for the Big Red, that's something to be proud of.
