galaxy s6

We know almost everything about Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy S6, We even have a pretty good idea on the handset's shape and dimensions. This is mostly based on leaked images of various cases for the future smartphone, but fairly recently we also saw some alleged schematics of the Galaxy S6 that seemed pretty accurate and credible enough.


Based on those info, somebody has taken up the task to fire up some CAD software and produce a few gorgeous and very detailed renders of the Galaxy S6. At this point these images are as close as we can get to actually seeing Samsung's next flagship and judging from what we already know the renders should be close to, if not absolutely accurate.


Galaxy S6 render


The Samsung Galaxy S6 should be equally impressive in terms of hardware. Rumors point toward an Exynos 7420 octa-core power house of a CPU along with an equally impressive Mali-T760 GPU and 3GB LPDDR4 RAM. The Galaxy S6 should spout a 5.1-inch QHD display and a rather impressive camera setup - 20MP OIS main shooter and 5MP front-facing.

ces 2020


CES is always a great event to welcome the New Year and year 2020 wasn't different. There wasn't many smartphones at the event, but a handful products surely made a splash due to being innovative and technologically advanced. Here are some of the top devices that deserve a mention.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 fold is a foldable version of the laptop. It is really cool to experience a laptop that looks like a tablet or monitor when laid out flat and becomes a regular laptop when half-open. The folded version is only 13-inch device that is small enough to carry inside a jacket. It has an ultra-think Bluetooth keyboard that slots in between the screen when folded eliminating the gap inside.

Insta360 One R

This is not just a regular wide-angle 4k action camera, but has modular structure that lets you switch out the lenses. It allows users to switch out not only the lenses, but the sensors as well. This is a huge breakthrough in cam industry. Rather than just popping a different lens on a stock body, each lens module comes with its own sensor, meaning you always have the right sensor for the lens you're using.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook

The Chromebook surely steels the show at CES 2020. It is a powerful chromebook with a beautiful design and body. It includes a stylus, that uses a convertible design and the metal chassis is sleek and well-made. If you have been looking for a chrome book this year, you should pay attention to this one.

OnePlus Concept one

OnePlus appeared at CES event for the first time, and it truly made an entrance with the concept one. The device has a design nothing like before. The device is ostensibly a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition with a new exterior. The Concept One uses electro chromic glass over the cameras on the rear side which allows them to disappear when not needed. No one has used the elctrochromic glass on mobile devices before and certainly would be a game changer.

Skyworth Q91

There were many TVs at CES but the Skyworth Q91 is one of the biggest and cheapest TV. A 75-inch 8K IPS LED TV from a storied television maker for under six thousand U.S. dollars is worth paying attention to. The Tv has integrated 8K AI image processing Engine, Dolby Atmos 2.1.2, a soundbar with Wonder Audio Sky Echo, a camera for web-conferencing, and SwAIoT for connecting all your smart home products to your TV, no matter if they're Skyworth products or powered by Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has already gone through a few teardowns and the latest one is performed by iFixit. In their post teardown analysis, the first thing that they have highlighted is the fact that the S7 is pretty hard to repair. Among other scores by iFixit, the Samsung flagship scored a 3/10 in terms of reparability, which is even lower than what the Galaxy S6 had scored last year.

At first, it seems like the Galaxy S7 does one better than the S6 because this time around, one does not need to take out the motherboard first in order to reach the battery. That impression vanishes soon enough once you realize that the battery has been glued firmly inside. While this will not matter much now, things may not work out well if you want to replace the battery in the future.

iFixit tells us that removing the rear glass panel itself was a challenge to complete without damaging the phone somehow as it too had received the glue treatment quite firmly. If the USB port happens to become defective over time, anyone who will be trying to repair it will face two problems. The first is the fact that the port cannot be removed without taking out the display first, which in itself is quite tricky. Secondly, once the display is removed, the chances of it being internally damaged are high, making the entire affair a risky manoeuvre. Couple all of this with the rubber seals that protect the internals of the Galaxy S7 from liquid damage and you have a phone on your hand that might be very difficult to repair if it ever breaks down.



If the leaks regarding the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are any indication, then we will probably have a pretty good idea about what to expect much before the Galaxy Note 8 is officially revealed. In fact, what we have for you today is the very first render of the upcoming stylus touting flagship from Samsung. As you can see, it isn't anything fancy and looks more like a drawing than a proper render, but this is the very first one of many more to come.

From what we can see here, the Note 8 looks pretty similar to the S8+ in design, except that it looks a bit more squarish. Apart from the bezel-less curved display, which has now become the norm for all Samsung Galaxy flagship handsets, we also get to see the headphone jack, the speaker grill, the microphone, the earpiece, the Bixby button, the volume button, the power button, an USB Type-C port and what looks like a second stereo speaker at the bottom of the device. The missing Home button confirms that Samsung will either be sticking to a rear mounted fingerprint scanner or will be launching an under-the-glass fingerprint scanner with the Note 8.

It isn't a secret at this point that Samsung is facing some tough competition from Chinese manufacturers globally and especially in emerging markets. However, in spite of the challenge, the South Korean giant had held its ground pretty well in most markets. Unfortunately for Samsung, that isn't the case in China, at least not anymore.

A Hong Kong based analytics firm has put forward data which suggests that Samsung's sales numbers dropped nearly 60% during Q1, 2017 as Samsung lost market share to the likes of Vivo, Huawei and Oppo; all of whom are Chinese OEMs. It looks like that these manufacturers are stepping up their game at home.

As things stand now (according to the report), Oppo managed to see a whopping 81% increase in their YOY Q1 sales numbers, with Vivo and Huawei coming in with 60% and 25% increase respectively. In China, Samsung just lost some serious ground as per these results since their market share plummeted from 8.6% just last quarter to 3.3% now. If these are signs of things to come then Samsung's future is not looking good in China at all.

According to the latest leak by VentureBeat, the Galaxy Note 8 will be costlier than any phone ever released by Samsung yet. While it is to be expected as I have never really seen any of their flagships launched with a lower price tag than that of its predecessor, Samsung is taking it beyond the $1,000 mark this time. To be precise, the Note 8 will start at an astoundingly expensive price tag of $1,120 or €999. This is of course, presuming that the leak has any merit to it.

The price itself will not matter much to the US users as they often get brilliant discounts, bogo offers and excellent monthly contract options. The international markets like India however, will feel the pinch as the prices are always higher and such discounts and offers are unheard of.

In case you don't know yet, rumors are predicting that you will be paying that price tag of $1,120 or higher (depending on where you are located) for a 6.3-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895, 6GB of RAM, rear mounted dual cameras, the S-Pen, Nougat 7.1.1 and a weirdly placed rear mounted fingerprint sensor.

Google voice translator


According to a new rumor, Google is working on a Revolutionary new Real-time Voice Translation System. This new App will allow users to speak in their native language (e.g. English) and the receiver will get real-time translation in his own language (e.g. French). A report by New York Times claims that the new functionality will be released as an update to Google's Mobile Translate app on Android.


There are not a lot of details right now, but one thing is clear. Google won't be offering two-way real-time voice translation. Instead, it will pick up any ongoing dictation in a popular language with your phone's microphone and automatically translate it to a language of your choice using the already present capabilities of the Google Translate app. Currently, it offers written translation from/to 80 languages.


According to NYT, Google will also announce a service that will let you point your phone to any foreign street sign and get an automatic translation.

YouTube App for Android was supposed to get an offline Playback Mode. However, Google decided NOT to include this feature on the latest update, even if it already submitted some screenshots to the App's Play Store listing includes an "Offline" tab on the navigation menu.


The "Offline" section for YouTube will download and cache any video to watch it offline anytime or anywhere you don't have an internet connection available. Seeing these official screenshots on the play store means that the update is coming very soon and it may got delayed due to a bug or an issue. Stay tuned for the next update for the YouTube App.

oppo N3


Oppo is reported to release the Oppo N2 successor before 2015, Today, We got some press rendered images of the upcoming Oppo N3 from GSM arena, please note the the photos may be just fake. As you can see, a very weird design from Oppo with large display and roll-camera.


oppo N3


These photos show a phone that's impressively thin, save for a bulbous circular section above the screen that houses the rotating camera and dual flash module along with a speaker on the side, possibly twinned on the opposite side for stereo.


Beneath the screen you can just barely see Oppo's usual capacitive navigation buttons. The body looks like aluminum, but that could just be the matte grey coloring.

According to the China Consumers Association, many of the iPhone models are experiencing a strange issue where the phones are switching off unexpectedly. They are claiming that the affected models so far include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. In fact, this isn't even a localised incident as consumers all over the world have reported similar problems with their iPhones in the last few weeks. Apple had in fact, issued a notice globally on November 20, while addressing the problem.

"Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This is not a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015.

If you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s is eligible for a battery replacement, free of charge."

However, the Chinese authorities have declared that the battery problem extends beyond just the iPhone 6s and Apple has failed to "meet basic consumer needs for normal wireless communication." Some of the Chinese users are even reporting that changing the battery as instructed by Apple in their notice, doesn't solve the unexpected shutdown problem either.

It is evident that the problem is serious enough for the authorities to take notice of the matter, but Apple has not yet replied to these reports or notices till date.

note 4


Samsung has updated the user manual for the Galaxy Note 4 to reflect on the changes the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is bringing. The firmware update is anticipated to land some time this month and the latest manual is a strong indication that the wait for owners of the phone will soon be over.


A video demonstrating Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 surfaced last month. In it, we saw that the general look and fell of TouchWiz UI is left untouched, with the new release bringing only minor visual changes most notable in the notification area.


note 4


There should be a lot more going on under the hood though with expected major performance boost and improved battery thanks to Project Volta.



Galaxy S5 lollipop update عربي


Earlier last month, we posted some leaked screenshots of a BETA firmware of the Arabic Lollipop 5.0 Update on the Samsung Galaxy S5, showing a non-completed RTL support and the new TouchWiz UI with Material Design. Meanwhile, Middle-east Galaxy S5 users are still awating their Lollipop update.



Today, SamsungGulf (Arab Gulf GCC region) has tweeted from its official twitter account that the Arabic Galaxy S5 Official Lollipop update is "Coming very soon", no exact date revealed yet but we can expect the update to be start rolling-out Over-the-air (OTA) during this month.




Stay tuned for more info regarding the Galaxy S5 Middle-east update!

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are Samsung's latest and greatest flagship handsets till now, but that crown is soon going to go to the Note 8 later this month. The Note 8 will also be released with Android Nougat 7.1 onboard, while the S8 is still on Nougat 7.0 as it happens. Of course, this disparity between the two flagship smartphones is not something that's going to be there for very long because as per reports, the S8 and the S8 Plus are going to get upgraded to Android 7.1 very soon as well.

This news comes to us, thanks to a listing by Vodafone Australia which clearly shows that the new firmware release is already under review. The information is not a rumor but a confirmed news as the official Vodafone Australia website has the listing on it for everyone to check out. It's only a matter of time before the update starts to make rounds across the globe now. So what can you expect after the update? To be honest, not much really! Maybe the UI will run a bit smoother and it will definitely be more stable and secure. The few visual upgrades and additions (emojis for example) that Nougat 7.1 does add to the phone will likely not even matter much since Samsung will lay its own UI on top. Nevertheless, the OS upgrade is more than welcome for the stability and security it will bring with it.

A lot of people are waiting for Android 7.0 Nougat to arrive on their Galaxy C-series smartphones and although we don't have the dates yet, thankfully, that date doesn't seem to be too far away now. The Galaxy C5, Galaxy C7 and the Galaxy C9 Pro have just been seen testing the Android 7.0 powered firmware in China, according to leakster @mmddj_china on Twitter. Although all it means is that the Chinese firmware is on the verge of being ready, we are guessing that all regions where Samsung has released the three smartphones should also see the upgrade package by the end of September, if not sooner.

Experts seem to think that in regions other than China, the C-series may or may not get the OTA update as Samsung has made such choices before as well, when it comes to its non-flagship smartphones. However, if the recent patterns are anything to go by, we think that this won't be the case this time around. However, we are not ruling out a superlate update in any case!
