• What We Can Expect for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8

    Posted on December 21st, 2016 Echo Brown | 545 comments

    Samsung has been trying to clean up its Galaxy Note 7 mess and is reportedly planning big upgrades for next year. The Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 expected in 2017 could rock foldable displays and more hefty changes to stand out from the crowd. So what else we can expect for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8?

    1. Flexible Displays

    Based on the latest rumors, Samsung is planning a “two-track strategy” for its 2017 flagships, experimenting with two-screen and bendable display models.
    According to the publication, Samsung will likely release the dual-screen model first and assess market reactions, then release the foldable screen model. The report further details that one model will have a rectangular design and feature a flexible, foldable OLED display, while the second model will look more like a tablet that can bend in half at the middle and deliver a phone-like experience, with screens on both its front and back.

    2. No Physical Home Button

    Earlier rumors have indicated that the Samsung Galaxy S8 home button will be virtual rather than physical, allowing for a nearly bezel-less, all-screen smartphone. Samsung is expected to ditch the physical home button for the Galaxy Note 8 as well, similarly replacing it with a touch-sensitive virtual button.

    3. Dual Cameras, Snapdragon 835 Processors

    When it comes to dual-lens cameras for the next-generation Samsung Galaxy flagships, reports have been contradictory so far. While some expect both the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 to sport dual rear cameras, others report that Samsung has abandoned such plans because it would lead to far higher manufacturing costs. On this note, it remains to be seen whether dual cameras will grace either flagship.
    In terms of processing power, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 are both expected to rock the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with a minimum 4 GB of RAM, potentially with higher-end 6 GB of RAM versions as well.
    Samsung typically releases two versions of its flagships, one powered by Qualcomm processors and the other packed with in-house Exynos chips. In 2017, the Qualcomm versions of the smartphones will pack the Snapdragon 835, while the others should feature Exynos 8895 processors.

    5. No Headphone Jack

    Recent rumors also indicate that Samsung might pull a page out of Apple’s playbook and remove the headphone jack from its upcoming flagships, just like Apple did with its iPhone 7 line. If this holds true, Samsung will likely rely on USB Type-C technology for audio playback on its Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

    6. 4K Display Smartphone

    Samsung might also introduce 4K resolution displays with either the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy Note 8 next year, which would grant it a notable edge against rivals that are still at 2K (QHD) or lower resolutions.
    On the other hand, some have argued that even 2K is a bit of an overkill for a smartphone screen and it would drain the battery too quickly. Sony already unveiled a 4K smartphone last year with its Xperia Z5 Premium, but the handset still shows most content in 1080p to preserve battery life.

    7. AI Assistant

    Samsung is reportedly planning to roll out its own artificial intelligence-powered assistant as well, likely aiming to compete against Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant. The Samsung Galaxy S8 could have a dedicated AI button on the side of the handset, allowing users to quickly summon the assistant. The dedicated button is reportedly in testing, so it might not make it to the final design.

    What will be Unveiled on the IFA 2013?

    IFA 2013 will be open on the 6th of September, and close on the 11th. IFA stands for Internationale Funkausstellung and this is one of the oldest industrial exhibitions in Germany.

    As a tradition, most companies which participate in the exhibitions will release their latest products two days before the exhibition officially launches.

    On this year’s IFA exhibition, what will be unveiled? According to the rumors days ago, Samsung may unveil two products on the IFA, One is Gear Watch, and the other is Galaxy Note 3. Gear Watch is the first smartwatch developed by Samsung. Although some other smartwatch makers have released their smartwatches long before Samsung, people tend to prefer the products of the giant of this “smart field”. The rumors of the specs of Samsung Gear have been totally a mess, but some of them are believable, like the 3-inch screen without flexible display, supporting Bluetooth connection, running with Android 4.0 OS and so on. If you are looking forward to owning a smartwatch, you should pay attention to the announcements of Samsung on the 4th of September.

    Samsung will also unveil the Galaxy Note 3. It is a 6-inch (mostly mentioned in the rumors) phablet, which is the upgraded version of Samsung Galaxy Note 2. As the big-screen smartphone has been more and more popular in the market, Samsung pays a lot of attentions to its Galaxy Note 3. The specs of this phablet are still mysterious, but the rumors say that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will run with the Android Jelly Bean 4.3, the latest version of Android OS; the processor will be the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800; the RAM will be 3GB and so on. When the IFA 2013 opens, we will be able to test the rumors.

    Sony Xperia Z1

    Sony will also be unveiling its new product, Sony Xperia Z1, on the IFA 2013. When the Sony Xperia Z came into being, its 5-inch screen and the design of the appearance of this smartphone attracted people’s eyes. This smartphone went to a success. So in this September, Sony prepared an upgraded version of the Xperia Z, and this new version will be almost like the Xperia Z. Sony Xperia Z1 will have a 5-inch screen of the 1080p display; run with Android Jelly Bean 4.2 Jelly Bean; has a 20.7 mega-pixel rear camera and so on. Sony Xperia Z1 will be unveiled on the 4th of September. Will this smartphone inherit the excellent performance from the Xperia Z? We’ll wait and see.

    HTC One Mini, HTC One and HTC One Max

    HTC will unveil the HTC One Max in the IFA 2013. HTC One is a flagship of HTC smartphone, and this smartphone is also popular among the Android phone users. With HTC One’s success, HTC released a blue model of HTC One, then HTC mini and now HTC One Max. This is HTC’s first phablet, and it will have a 5.9-in screen with 1080p Super LCD3 Display. HTC One Max is almost like HTC One except for the screen. As the HTC has been in a hard situation now, so will HTC One Max be the turning point of this company? The HTC One Max will be unveiled in this IFA 2013 as well, and will this “big HTC One” be the one that saves HTC?

    Apple, What's Next?

    As for Apple, we have to say sorry that the fruit company still hasn’t made any announcements to participate in the IFA 2013, so we will not be lucky to see the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The latest rumor says that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S on the 20th of September, but the former rumor goes like iPhone 5S will be unveiled on the 10th. It will be cool to take a golden iPhone, and iPhone 5S may use the IGZO screen, which will be brighter, so that you are able to enjoy the pictures transferred from computer without doing harm to your eyes.

    Other companies like LG, Lenovo and Philips and so on will unveil their new products. Let’s wait for the feast for all the fans of smartphone, phablet, tablet and notebook.

  • Some Former iOS Devices Won’t Support the New Features of iOS 7

    Posted on June 13th, 2013 Webber | 169 comments

    Jun 13, 2013, Shenzhen, China – The WWDC is still ongoing and has attracted many Apple fans’ eyes. On this conference, Apple revealed iOS 7, which has been a mystery for days. iTunes Radio and Airdrop were added to iOS 7 and the developers wanted to make iOS 7 more user-friendly than the former versions. However, some former devices won’t support the new iOS 7 features.

    iOS 7

    In the WWDC 2013, Apple revealed the iOS 7 operating system, and that’s probably a piece of good news to all the iOS devices users. The new iOS 7 features are: Control Center, it is a totally new design on iPhone. Just swipe up from the bottom of the iPhone, you’ll get some easy-access controls; Multitasking, it will allows you to browse the task bar and get to know what’s happening in the app, just like the Android operating system’s multitask functions; iTunes Radio, a streaming radio with the best selection of music. You can enjoy music anytime you want. Siri, it is improved by the developers, it now has male and female voice and the Siri will be added to cars in 2014; Airdrop, it is a newly designed service which allows you to transfer photos and videos over Wi-Fi. All these new features do good to users, and it seems like the developers of iOS 7 have determined to make a great change of this latest iOS version.

    However, some former iOS devices may not support the new iOS 7 features, so before you start using iOS Beta Version, you’d better transfer the files to computer for backing up. The following list shows the supported devices:
    1. Airdrop: iPhone 5, iPod touch 5, iPad 4, iPad mini.
    2. Siri: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 5, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini.
    3. Panorama: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 5.
    4. Filters in Camera: iPhone 5, iPod touch 5.
    5. Filters in Photos: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 5, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini
    6. Square/video formats and swipe to capture: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 5, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini
    7. iTunes radio: any device supports iOS 7.

    As a revolutionary upgrade, iOS 7 borrowed the advantages of Android and Windows Phone. This trial will possibly make iOS devices more easy to handle than before, but the new flat design makes iPhone simpler but lacks of some high quality details such as the changing apps’ icons to 2D. If those wonderful details were kept in iPhone, the iOS 7 will earn more claps.
