• LG G6 Won’t Be Featuring Snapdragon 835 Because of Samsung

    Posted on February 4th, 2017 Henry | 204 comments

    LG’s upcoming flagship G6 won’t be featuring Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chipset due to the fact that Samsung bought out all the chips that there won’t be any left for the other companies, according to a recent report.

    Ben Sin, a consumer tech writer for Forbes, recently criticized HTC for featuring Snapdragon 821 instead of the more powerful Snapdragon 835 in the year of 2017. But after digging deeper into that, he realized there’s a good reason for that.

    data-ad-slot=”4123226464″>

    “I’ve spoken to some industry insiders in Asia today and I must apologize to HTC, because it would appear that the 835 is out of their reach until after April, so they couldn’t have used the 835 without drastically delaying the phone,” Sin writes.

    “In fact, that’s the case with almost all phones, including LG’s flagship. Yup, I have confirmed with an industry insider that the LG G6 will run on Snapdragon 821 instead of the 835 that everyone’s expecting.”

    The reason why the G6 will be missing out on the Snapdragon 835 is that Samsung has first dibs on it because it’s basically the biggest customer for Qualcomm and the order from the Korean Company is so big that there won’t be enough for other vendors.

    Big companies like LG, Sony and HTC won’t be able to have access to the Snapdragon 835 until after the official debut of the Galaxy S8 in the coming months.

    This won’t be much of an issue for LG’s fans actually as LG’s done things like this before. The LG chose the Snapdragon 808 instead of the 810, but that’s mainly because of the concern of overheating rather than stock out.

    From the latest leak we can see that the G6 would be featuring a USB-C port, headphone jack, a dual-camera arrangement and a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. And noticeably the device’s 5.7-inch display features virtually no bezel. All in all, the G6 is still a flagship worth expecting.

  • Google Confirms Two Flagship Android Wear Watches for the First Quarter for 2017

    Posted on December 26th, 2016 Henry | 97 comments

    Google has confirmed that it’s launching two flagship smartwatches in early 2017. They would be coming out with the debut of Android Wear 2.0. And Google will have the watches built by a third-party manufacturer that has the experience of releasing Wear Watches before.

    According to Jeff Chang, Product manager of Android Wear at Google, Unlike the Pixel phones, the watches won’t be carrying Google or Pixel branding. Instead, they would be carrying the branding of the manufacturer who actually builds the watches – But Chang has yet to confirm who that is.

    According to The Verge, Change also said that they are making an effort to convince consumers that smartwarches are still in demand and the new watches are part of the effort. He also promised that new Wear devices from other manufacturers are on the way for 2017.

    Once the new Wearables have arrived, Google will rollout Android Wear 2.0 to existing smartwatches. But not every watch is getting the update, just those of the most recent ones will and it’s partly because some features on Android Wear 2.0, like Android Pay, require certain hardware.

    Other than Android Pay, Android Wear 2.0 will feature standalone apps that can be used without having the watch connected to a smartphone, and Google’s new voice-controlled Assistant. It will support iPhone, so does Android Pay with iOS.

    Chang also demonstrated Google’s optimistic attitude towards smartwatches, “This is a marathon, not a sprint. This category of product is here with us to stay.”

    Posted on September 3rd, 2013 David Brooks | No comments

    The much-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note III is going to show its official release in the upcoming IFA, as well as the hot rumored Samsung Gear Smartwatch.  However, aside from these two new devices, Samsung seems to make something big by expanding its Galaxy Note product line to be with 12.2 inches big screen display, which is the months rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2. A spy picture of this new device appeared on MovePlayer last Sunday shows that there’s a big difference between this new black device and other Samsung devices.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2

    A leaked image shows a render of tablet being named as the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2. According to source, the device, with the model number SM-P900, is set to be released in the second half of this year. If the name is to be believed, it will be another S Pen-enabled Android tablet. What seems strange though is that it sports a physical home button at the bottom which is so far absent in most of the manufacturer’s 10.1-inch tablets but is prominent in its smartphones, phablets, and 8-inch tablets.

    It will feature an 8-core Exynos Octa 5 processor, and a 12.2-inch display with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. It’s still unknown whether the Galaxy Note 12.2 device would adopt plastic cover. But SamMobile site pointed out that this new device is mostly probably one of the Samsung 9X series.

    The details about this new device might be revealed on the upcoming IFA.

    Posted on May 30th, 2013 Wiki | 15 comments

    Indeed May is a rather busy month for mobile industry. There are so many launch events held like BlackBerry Live, Google I/O and CTIA. Now it seems like that June becomes a little bit jam-packed too, since Samsung announced it will hold a “Premiere 2013″ event in London on June 20, which is just less than a week after Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference wraps up. The invitation card shows that this event will focus on Samsung’s Galaxy and ATIV brands.

    Although exactly what will be on the agenda this time around is still unclear, there are still rumors revealing what Samsung is going to show at the event. I have collected all recent speculations and rumors, and finally listed 5 devices that Samsung is highly expected to take the wraps off on “Premiere 2013″ event, on June 20. Check out.

    1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3

    Recent rumors reveal that Samsung is preparing to unveil the Galaxy Tab 3 soon. The device is expected to sport a 10.1-inch display with 1280 × 800p screen resolution. The new tablet is rumored to be powered by a dual-core Intel Atom chipset, while running on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

    Another recent report also revealed the price details of two Galaxy Tab 3 versions – the 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants. Just in line with the report, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will cost $329.99 and the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will cost $379.99.

    2. A New ATIV-Branded Smartphone

    It is widely known that Samsung has released the ATIV S at IFA 2012 in Berlin, which is Samsung’s first device running Windows Phone 8 OS. The phone carried very similar hardware to the Galaxy S3 and had a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera as its main features.

    Giving that the ATIV S received a positive review and the device is now more than 8 months old, Samsung is now possibly thinking of releasing an updated version of the this smartphone, so as to complete with Nokia.

    3. Galaxy S4 Zoom

    Another highly rumored product of Samsung of late is its new camera phone, which is duded the “Galaxy S4 Zoom.” The device is rumored to feature a 16-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, 8GB of internal storage capacity, Micro SD card support up to 64GB and the Android Jelly Bean operating system with Samsung’s own Touch Wiz Nature UX interface.

    4. Galaxy S4 Mini

    The rumors of a smaller version of the Galaxy S4, presumably called Galaxy S4 Mini, are flying on the web these days. Countless reports shows that this small brother of Galaxy S4 will make its premiere on Samsung “Premiere 2013″ Event, and the device will comes with an Exynos 5210 1.6GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with qHD resolution (540×960), an 8-megapixel rear camera and 4G LTE among others.

    After entering into the Windows Phone mobile field with the ATIV S phone last year, Samsung is possible to release a new ATIV-branded Windows 8 tablet or laptop with detachable touchscreen. If that finally becomes true, the device will be the strongest competitor for Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet.
