We can't deny that Samsung has greatly improved the build quality of its products lately. According to Bloomberg, Samsung plans to focus on launching more Smartphones with high-quality metal chases, slim designs and High-definition displays this year.
According to Kwon Oh Hyun, who leads the components business, Samsung will also focus on smart home and health devices, as well as business-to-business market.
"Samsung Electronics aims to consolidate its leadership in the premium market and plans to newly change the smartphone line-up to strengthen competitiveness," - said Co-CEO JK Shin, Mobile phone business head.
We have brand new leaked images of the Galaxy S8+ for you today, which clearly highlight how tall the S8+ is with its 6.2-inch display set at a new 18:9 aspect ratio. We also get to see the back, the front and even the camera viewfinder. It even has an image which shows the S8+ in comparison to the LG V20.
Since we have already seen the bezel less display and the rest of the smartphone hardware quite a few times before, the most important details revealed via this leak are the software details. The camera viewfinder is the highlight here as it shows two distinctive changes apart from the regular viewfinder lay out. We can see a teddy bear icon on the bottom right and the "eye" at the lower left side. While the eye could have something to do with light detection and the AI assistant Bixby, the purpose of the bear icon is somewhat puzzling! Nevertheless, we will know everything in just two more days on March 29, at the Galaxy Unpacked event. Another detail which the photos might be indicating is that the power button can be double tapped to activate the camera.

One of the biggest gripes with sharing photos via messaging services had always been the limitations which these apps automatically put on the shared images. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and almost all messaging apps usually compress high resolution photos which causes them to lose significant quality. That is no longer the situation with Facebook Messenger because the new updated app can now support images with resolutions of up to 4,096 x 4,096 pixels, which is about the size of photos shot with a 16.8-megapixel camera. As most modern smartphone cameras shoot at near or below that resolution, it's safe to assume that smartphone photo sharing will now become lossless (mostly).
Facebook decided to up their previous 2-megapixel limit on the messenger app in light of the 17 billion photos which are being shared each month on the app. We would say that it's about time too because 2-megapixel was a seriously low limit for smartphone cameras today! Let us know if you like this move by Facebook, we sure did.

Its new year 2020 and time to make some resolutions. The main idea about making resolutions is to bring a positive change and this can be brought by observing the mistakes of the last year, working on them and make improvements. Yes, it is always difficult to break the shackles but it is not impossible!
A tester cannot promise 100% perfection but bringing improvements is 500% possible. There is a famous quote " A goal without a plan is just a wish". So let's see what we can plan for 2020.
Follow new trends in mobile and web technology
Being updated about the latest trends of your respective fields is as important as having salt in your diet. We live in a digital world hence not being informed is impossible! Social Media channels like linked in and twitter are the best professional sites to follow. You can set Google Alerts to get automated messages about any topic of your choice. If you will search for newsletters for any topic relating to your line of work your mailbox will be flooded with hundred's of emails for newsletters. So you can always subscribe to newsletters like the latest trends of mobile app testing. You can also join communities like Google Groups, Reddit, Stack Overflow, etc. and consume information that is relevant to you.

As per studies, 72% of smartphone users uninstall the app due to various reasons like technical issues, high loading speed, etc. Hence this indicates that mobile apps should function seamlessly to provide the best user experience. Mobile app testers mainly focus on the most used functions of the application and make sure that it runs smoothly. To make sure that the main applications of your app functions well you need to deal with all tedious test suits like regression testing. Hence automation is a must to carry out regression testing. In the case of mobile apps, you need to make sure that your app is compatible with different browser versions, os versions, and screen sizes. Hence cross-browser testing is imperative for a healthy app and automation is a must to carry out cross-browser testing. All these examples show the importance of automation in the testing of a mobile application.
Try to implement CI/CD
In Continuous Integration and continuous delivery, you can frequently change the code of a module and push it to the right branch. Hence it makes the testing process more efficient and systematic from the initial stage and makes you more confident about your end product. There are many tools used for CI/CD like Jenkins, Jira, Travis CI, Gitlab, Bamboo etc. are some of the most popular tools used for CI/CD. Learning these tools will further enhance your skills. Hence you can add Learning and implementing CI/CD in your new year resolution list.
Learn AI and ML
With the advancement in technology mobile app testing is also evolving and there are so many AI and ML-based mobile app testing tools available in the market. So one of the greatest benefits of AI in the mobile app testing is that it enhances DevOps. DevOps speeds up the process of Automation testing by providing continuous feedback so that the bugs can be rectified at the earliest. The feedback data is retrieved with the help of monitoring tools. The monitoring tools use machine learning to analyze the issue and make suggestions. Similarly, teams can make use of multiple monitoring tools and then use machine learning to analyze and derive a single output data for better results.
We can enhance the practice of Mobile App testing every year if we develop innovative tools and hence every mobile tester needs to make a lot of effort to improve the testing methods. When speaking about mobile app testing tools and one of the best mobile app testing platform is pCloudy which is powered by next-gen technologies like Artificial intelligence and predictive analytics. It supports 5000 device browser combinations and can test multiple devices together. This platform supports the testing of both Android and IOS devices. These features are nothing but innovative efforts of the mobile app testing team in pcloudy which vows to continue and improve in the coming year.
A User Agent Profile found on the Samsung Mobile site, confirms the 1440 x 2560 resolution screen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The eagerly awaited phablet is expected to be introduced on Wednesday during a Samsung UNPACKED event. The UAProf shows that the latest iteration of Sammy's phablet line will have a model number of SM-N920T.
We expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to offer a 5.7 inch screen, powered by the Snapdragon 805 CPU in certain regions, and an octa-core Exynos processor in other regions. 3GB of RAM is said to be inside and the phablet has been tipped to arrive with the same fingerprint sensor that is employed on the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Samsung S Pen will come with the phone.
