After lots of teasing, Today, Samsung has announced the Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition, a very special Galaxy S6 edge designed in collaboration with Marvel.
The Iron Man-themed Galaxy smartphone is dressed in red and gold, has 64 GB of internal memory, and will be offered in a box containing a matching wireless charging pad. A clear cover that enhances its "exclusive design" is also included. You can check out the handset in the photos on this article or the video embedded below.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition will be launched on May 27 in South Korea, and next month in China and Hong Kong. The company didn't mention other markets, which might leave many Iron Man fans disappointed. The price of the S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition wasn't unveiled, but it's probably higher than the price of a regular S6 edge 64 GB.
Samsung said nothing about an Iron Man edition of the Galaxy S6, which might mean that the curved S6 edge is the only one that's getting the superhero treatment.
Now that Samsung has started to update Bixby with the missing voice functionality in South Korea, they have also released multiple videos which demonstrate how good Bixby's voice functionality actually is. Unfortunately, they are only available in Korean at the moment, so don't expect to understand too much from the videos themselves, unless you know the language of course.
Nevertheless, the videos serve two purposes in my book. Firstly they show off the digital assistant's capabilities to help us use the phone completely with voice only. It can open apps, edit images, share them wherever you want them to be shared, launch the camera, take pictures/videos, change device settings and so much more. Secondly it confirms that Samsung's claims with Bixby at launch were on point, albeit a bit premature. We have linked all the videos throughout this article so that you can check them out for yourself. Enjoy!
The Sony Xperia XZ Premium introduced super slow motion video recording at 960fps this year and till date, no other camera has been able to replicate anything close to that. However, according to the latest rumors, Samsung is planning to challenge Sony's monopoly on that particular camera feature by introducing something similar with the Galaxy S9 in 2018. ET News reports that the rear camera module on the Galaxy S9 will be capable of recording footage at 1,000fps in super slow motion. Although, they did not mention anything about whether or not the module will be a dual camera or a single camera setup.
The three-layer design which Sony uses to capture the 960fps video is exclusive to Sony as they have the patent on it. In order to overcome this obstacle, Samsung is going a different route which may involve a two-layer design. IF you are interested in the exact specifics, you will probably have to wait a few months for that because the S9 is still quite a way off! In the meanwhile check out the video to know how a 1,000fps footage might actually look.

"Ok, Google" is the first thing you say when you hold your Android phone to do a certain task or ask a question.
Google wanted to promote this feature even further for the users who doesn't use it/know it, that's why the company posted 5 videos promoting Google Now Search in a clever way that will move you, watch the video below.
Google announced that YouTube for Android will now support 360 degree videos. To do this, Google met with the manufacturers of 360 degree movie cameras such as Bublcam, Giroptic's 360cam, IC Real Tech's Allie, Kodak's SP360 and RICOH THETA. The purpose of these get togethers was to make sure that YouTube would be able to play such videos made with their cameras. For now, those shooting 360 degree videos will have to include a script that will allow YouTube to upload the video with the correct metadata. In the future, Google hopes to have this done automatically.
With the update to YouTube for Android, users can move their phone or tablet around while a 360 degree video plays, in order to catch all of the different angles on the screen.
"People can watch your videos on the existing YouTube app for Android, and by moving the phone or tablet around they'll see all the different angles while the video plays. They can do the same on YouTube.com or embedded videos on Chrome by using the mouse to drag the point of view around, and we're working to bring this to iPhone, iPad and other devices soon." - YouTube
HTC has just updated its "Zoe" app in Google Play with support for a few non-HTC phones, but support will supposedly expand soon. The Zoe app isn't the same as HTC's Zoe camera feature in the HTC One, but it might still be interesting if you're down with making and sharing videos.
This is a beta release of the app, so you can only use it with certain devices. We're seeing the Nexus 5, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy S4 all on the supported list. Phones like the LG G3 and Moto X are not able to run the app yet (through official channels).
Zoe is supposed to be available on all phones from LG, Samsung, and HTC running 4.4 or higher, but it appears they're still working on that. Download Zeo from Play Store link Below.
Are you familiar with the 1980's "Back to the future" movie series ? Remember that hoverboard with no wheels ? Well, it's not science fiction anymore...
Lexus has revealed that it has successfully developed a real prototype Hoverboard. Lexus's project team has collaborated with experts in super-conductive technology to build an actual, working, real-life hoverboard. No joke.
Actually, the team is using magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled super-conductors and permanent magnets to give the hoverboard frictionless movement of a kind that had been thought impossible.
Lexus said that the hoverboard shares some design cues with the current Lexus range of car including that "Predator" style spindle grille. It apparently features materials sourced from Lexus's road car range, though whether it'll boast a curiously old-school digital clock remains unclear.
The hoverboard is planned as a one-off, sadly, and won't be put up for sale. But who cares? They'll be testing the prototype in Barcelona over the next few weeks, ahead of a summer launch.
Check the Video below to see a teaser of the technology in action: a very small teaser, admittedly, that doesn't show a whole lot in the way of hovery, skatey action.
Game developer studio Bethesda and id Software has announces their upcoming "Doom" aka "Doom 4" game at their pre-E3 conference. Launching in 2016 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the new Doom is the fourth game in the series and releasing after eleven years since Doom 3.
The E3 videos show off a lot of gameplay footage, including singleplayer and multiplayer, as well as the official launch trailer for the game. The game stays true to the Doom roots and will please a lot of the fans of the series while bringing in some new gameplay elements, especially a lot of cool finishing moves in melee combat. See the videos below!
The first video makes fun of the difficulties Apple had with the live stream it was supposed to be sending out yesterday, during its new product introductions. The spoof shows the two genius bar workers, one who is pretending to talk as though he were a live feed breaking up. "You're in technology and you can't handle this?," the other genius bar worker says. Every one asked Apple the same question on Tuesday. Score one for Samsung.
In the second ad, the same two "genius bar" employees are watching what is obviously supposed to be yesterday's Apple iPhone 6 announcement. They rejoice in the introduction of the larger screened iPhones, until they come to the realization that other phones have larger screens (like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4).
The rest of the ads cover things like the Apple Watch, the S Pen, Multi Wimdows and battery life. We've embedded all six below for your viewing pleasure.
In case you haven't decided if your next smartphone is going to be the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung is keen to push you in what it considers is the right direction.
The company already did a series of videos highlighting how the Galaxy Note 4 is tough and rugged, but now it's time to talk functionality. In the two 30-second ads the company highlights the software features it has developed as well as the versatility that the S-Pen provides. Watch the videos Below!

Hot News! Some users noticed some Ad banners on Google's website that redirects them to 3 different Videos. The Videos has the New "Android Logo" on them along with an appearance of Android L and Nexus 6 too.
These 3 videos are part of Google's upcoming massive marketing campaign to help promote its New Android version which will be officially released this Month
From what we can tell, that marketing campaign will feature Androidified people of all types, coupled with the slogan "be together. not the same." Clearly, Google wants the world to know that everyone can use Android, not just nerds or elitists or hipsters or the rich or poor. It's a platform with devices for everyone. Google already got the videos link down.
You can clearly see "Android L" along with "Nexus 6" in the first Video Below.
