Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Android Lollipop Update Pictured In Latest Leak

Android 5.0 Lollipop has been rolling out here and there, on Nexus devices like the Nexus 6, the LG G3 and others - but there's been little word of Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

These new pictures change that, and provide a glimpse at what the Note 4's UI will look like with the new Android update on board.

We've also caught a glimpse of the Note 3's Lollipop update, and it's worth noting that it looks pretty similar to what we're seeing in these two images.

It's not much, but it does indicate that while the Samsung Galaxy S5 might get its Lollipop update this month, the Note 4 probably won't be far behind.

OnePlus One Will Be Bought By Lucky Invite-Laden People in India

OnePlus has made its official jump into the Indian market and from here; all the lucky (really lucky) invitee-winners can buy their own 'One' for Rs 21,999 for the 64 GB model. No sign of the 16 GB and that for all reasons, make complete sense.

As we've mentioned earlier, OnePlus has exclusively tied up with Amazon, online seller in India to sell the devices, albeit to anyone who manages to grab the elusive invite. OnePlus, via its commonly thronged forum, has declared that any OnePlus One smartphone bought by Indian consumers will get all kinds of after-sale services, including warranty. Buyers in India should be privy to the fact that the phone will be available via invite-only sales model and those will be confined to buying One Plus One in the country only.

OnePlus One sports a 5.5 inch full-HD display, running on CyanogenMod version software based on Android 4.4 KitKat. We're not sure, if OnePlus will be able to offer the CyanogenMod on the smartphone, after an unexpected turn of events. However, the company has already promised future version updates coming from the house of OnePlus which will now create its custom builds for its device, specifically for the Indian market.

It packs a quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset paired with 3 GB RAM. On the imaging front, there are 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras. Storage wise, the phone comes in 16/64 GB options (around 7.5/54 GB usable) and non expandable. The big size device gets a big size 3100 mAh battery with fast charging feature.

The company is not planning to offer many units in the country; hence the rush to grab invite has become fairly evident with no sign of slowing down. After all the numerous queries and pleas, OnePlus is here in India and with its offering experience they want to change the way a phone looks. In addition to the product announcement, OnePlus has shared its intention to sell the phone via pre-order model in the country versy soon.

New Leak Reveals Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note 3 With Snapdragon 800 SoC

Samsung’s latest phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 3, was unveiled only recently. The short time frame hasn’t stopped the company from talk about a dual-SIM variant of the device. And according to GSM Insider, such a device is indeed in the works. Before building up expectations, it is necessary to state that the new phablet offering will be hitting the Chinese market for now. There is still no word about an India launch for the variant.

The leak also came with a bunch of photos of the SM-N9002 model, as Samsung is calling it. The most important piece of information revealed from the leak suggests that the dual-SIM Galaxy Note 3 will come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC sporting four 2.3GHz Krat 400 cores and an Adreno 330 GPU under the hood. The variant was even put through an AnTuTu benchmark resulting in a score of 31,276, which is pretty impressive if confirmed. While the variant still falls slightly short of the standard Galaxy Note 3 benchmark scores, according to the source, it is still too early to say if this will affect its overall performance.     
Samsung, from what has been heard so far, will be launching four variants of the Galaxy Note 3 in China. All the information gathered so far suggests that all four models will be available for China Unicom. China Mobile, however, will be getting the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9008 while China Telecom will be rolling out the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9009 variant. All told, this seems to be good news for the Chinese Note lovers.

The source states that there will be no real difference between the Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9002 model and the international version of the phablet, apart from the second SIM slot. The N9002 model will come with the same 5.7-inch 1080p display, 13-megapixel camera and run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

iPhone 5S To Include Fingerprint Scanner : WSJ

While we count down the hours to the much-awaited launch of Apple’s newest iPhones, more leaks and confirmations are coming in hard and fast regarding the specifications. The biggest feature of the anticipated launch has been the fingerprint scanner and it looks like the more expensive of the two handsets slated to be launched tonight will be home to it.

Rumours about the fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5S have been doing the rounds of the tech circles for quite some time now, but The Wall Street Journal, ahead of the Tuesday event has more or less confirmed the feature. According to the report, the fancy feature will be a part of only the iPhone 5S and not the rumoured low-end iPhone 5C. 
The report is backed up with references to hardware of this sort that had been found in the beta version of iOS 7. A leak by developer Hamza Sood contained codes of a setup process that made a reference to a biometric scanner located within iPhone’s home button. The description of the sensor showed users placing their fingers on the iPhone’s Home button and seeing an image of a thumbprint in changing colours.

While the technology of fingerprint recognition has been an often visited one by tech companies in order to avoid the need to remember passwords, it hasn’t quite been done right yet. The report by WSJ now notes that newer technology allows for devices to take multiple scans with the finger held in one place, thereby increasing reliability of the readings compared to older technology.

The Cupertino based company will be adding the fingerprint scanner on the more expensive of the two devices, the iPhone 5S, which will by far be the most high-profile consumer electronic device to be home to a fingerprint scanner. The key to widespread public adoption is touted to be the technology’s reliability and ease of use.

Apple’s event is all set to be held tonight at its Cupertino headquarters and will see the launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

There is a lot of handling power under the Lumia 720’s bonnet. The CPU is made of double Krait cores produced by Qualcomm. The Snapdragon SoC also has an Adreno 305 GPU along with 512MB of RAM. This mixture appears to be good enough for a mid-range cellphone, but the amount of RAM has us concerned that some programs may not be suitable with this particular smartphone. 

Even though the Lumia 720 does not bring the PureView tag, Htc is going to focus on shutterbugs with the smartphone. Htc, with its smartphone, statements to enables you to catch and discuss images with the photographic camera and through contacts such as Cinemagraph, Intelligent Capture and Glamorous Me.

The design of the Lumia 720 informs us very much of the Htc Lumia 920, but the show results in a lot to be preferred. 

Here are some of the highlighted features of the Lumia 720:
  • 4.3-inch ClearBlack LCD display with a resolution of 800x480 pixels
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi

Will Apple Launch A Budget iPhone For India This Year?

A inexpensive iPhone is a contradiction, or at least Apple company had people believe that for a while. That was until New samsung went to the top of the perch and Android operating system became the de-facto OS for mobile phones across the world. The inventory exchange too has proven a deficiency of assurance in the iPhone manufacturer and the business's inventory has been moving since Sept 2012. All of this has driven a rumour that the Cupertino-based system and press massive is making a less expensive iPhone focused particularly at growing marketplaces like Chinese suppliers and Native indian.

The newest inclusion to this rumour is from iPhone case manufacturer Tactus. A writing on the business's formal weblog has an image of what they declare is the returning protect of the ‘cheap iPhone’. The white-colored thermoplastic returning, proven in the image, has rounded factors and pointed amount control buttons much like the traditional iPod. The style seems to be a rollback as the present plants of iPhones have cup or aluminum supports and have implemented streamlined, straighter collections along the edges. Tactus also considers that the cellphone will come in 5 color choices – dark, white-colored, red, red and yellow-colored. While Apple company has combined out iPods in various colors the iPhones have always been dressed in white wines, colors of dark or metal aluminum layers. The rumours that Apple company would toss in a sprint of color for the price range iPhone is credible but the choice of colors informs us of Nokia’s scheme rather than Apple’s.
Now, about the hardware; Tactus statements that the cellphone will game an A5 processor like the iPad Small and will have a 3.5-inch display instead of a 4-inch display like the newest version of the iPhone or many of the other price range mobile phones currently in the marketplace. The photographic camera is said to be a 5 MP present shooter and there is no term on the top side photographic camera or whether 1080p producing would be possible. If the cellphone does indeed have the A5 processor like the iPad Small then 1080p producing could be a probability.

Tactus has also believed on the price and the release time frame. Their expectation is that the cellphone would cost between $230 and $300 (Rs 12,000 and Rs 16,000 approx).  Given that the ‘cheap iPhone’ is being made for marketplaces like Chinese suppliers and Native indian it is secure to believe that these are not US costs. This would mean that the iPhone will end up being less expensive than mobile phones like the New samsung Universe Huge and the Micromax Fabric HD. That is a questions that we find very hard to believe as Apple company Native indian is currently promoting a three creation old cellphone, the iPhone 4, at Rs 26,000. The stated release time frame for the product is said to be Oct Fifteenth, 2013. Last season Apple company released the iPad Small on Oct Twenty third, so, the think that they will come up with another ‘budget’ system around the same time this season does not seem to be far-fetched.

Apple’s exclusivity is a great marketing technique and is something that they would not give up so quickly. The company has also been effective in disposal a huge number of iPhone 4s onto the Native indian customer resulting in incredibly powerful sales. They will definitely slam up their providing as they look to develop in Native indian and Chinese suppliers but will it be the cellphone that Tactus describes? We question it.
