Samsung is all set to stifle Apple this year and we are almost sure its Galaxy Note 5 could be a way to do that. The latest revelation on this buzz comes from a Samsung model christened ZenZero for its Edge series on benchmarking portal HTML5test.
The test run had been conducted on Samsung Browser 3.2, for a “SAMSUNG ZenZero running Android 5.1.1,” according to the benchmarking site, states GSMArena.
Before you get all dolled up about the upcoming Note 5, the website has specifically stated that it does not warrant the tests and information. It adds that these are in no way official or even genuine.
We had earlier heard that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 might hit the market by August this year, as stated on Daum, a Korean website. Now again with buzz around Apple releasing its next flagship gaining ground for a September timeline, leaks are pointing to a plausible Note 5 entry by September.
On another end, Samsung is supposedly working on two variants– SM-N920F and SM-G928S at the moment, according to SamMobile. The source also stated how the former model could actually be the Galaxy Note 5. The rumored specs part of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 could be-
Apple never misses an hour without being in news be it for its upcoming iPhone 7 release date or the expectations of its fans of what they would love to see on a fantasy Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
While buzz around beefier build, never-before-seen patents and awesome specs are doing the rounds about the rumored flagship, here are top five things we wish Apple incorporates-
As soon as we begin to get vigorous with the iPhone models, the battery signal bar begins to climb down. Yes we agree that Apple gave us a whole lot with a decent battery on the iPhone 6, we hope the 6S or whatever is next gives us great standby/usage time.
Fans are praying for the Cupertino maker to design its next keeping in mind we do not all have epic grip! Yes the biggie screen size at 5.5 inches is a beauty but if only the iPhone 7 Plus were much sleeker! Toning the bezels could be the wonder formula here.
Seriously, Apple has seen fans climbing over to millions from mere hundreds in the past few years, the number could be on the rise further if the prices for its iPhone 7 Plus or upcoming variants see a cool slash.
We also wish that the typical 16 GB onboard iPhone variants are given a miss now. We need more meat in terms of internal storage and perhaps Apple could please us this way with the iPhone 7 Plus.
Finally, the all-important shutter story on the iPhone 7 Plus could be improved by leaps. We are fed up with the protruding snapper that all current iPhones have. More so, if Apple has indeed rendered sapphire glass add-ons to the latest designs, the iPhone 7 Plus could see a flatter camera surface.
Like other devices from Apple, the alleged iPad Pro is also becoming a ‘hot’ product from the gadget giant. But the company is pushing the date of iPad Pro’s release to 2016 so that the new device can be launched with exclusive ‘Force Touch’ feature.
So far it was speculated that Apple might release iPad Pro in 2015, but since Apple is reportedly not sure about the type of screen to be used on the device, the release date of the tablet is supposed to be in 2016.
Samsung Display, Japan Display and LG Display are some of the top screen makers with whom Apple is discussing its deal to procure Silver Nanowire-Wound (AgNW) touch screen coating in place of old-fashioned ITO-based screens, as reported by ETNews.
AgNW is the latest screen coating that is far more flexible than ITO-based panels and as per the experts, this coating is quite apt for ‘Force Touch’. Force Touch feature has been already employed in new Macbook and Apple Watch at much reasonable cost and now company is planning to introduce it in iPad Pro. Even the next delivery of iPhones are expected to come with this innovative feature.
However, iPad Pro is rumoured to have sapphire glass panles, which may augment the cost of the device and offset the affordability that is acquired by using the AgNW. So, there is no chance that Apple buyers can avail low cost devices from the company.
We are steadily bored with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and thus anticipating the upcoming Apple iPhone 7. Insider scoop reveals that the iPhone 7 will be up for us by September. Surprisingly, a twist in the game could be that we are actually awaiting the iPhone 6S that is being rumored as the iPhone 7 until now.
Going by the history of Apple’s releases, after the iPhone 6, a 6S model is logically up next. Also, the upcoming iPhone will be a game changer in terms of specs and features, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, analyst at KGI Securities. The latest ‘S’ model of the iPhone, might have a similar chassis to the iPhone 6 and will boost similar colors. However, a latest variety of sapphire glass could change the way the Apple flagship could weigh.
As for the screen size, expect no more than 4.7 inches and a slim form factor at just 5.5 inches. We are anticipating Apple System on Chip A9, from the Samsung stable on the beauty besides expecting specs such as Force Touch and Corning Project Phire. Though not certain about what could finally make it to the Apple iPhone 6S, we are geared up for a huge leap in terms of technical offerings.
Apple has rolled out several new products this year and Apple MacBook is one of the most noted releases. Though all MacBook models are equally impressive, buyers often cannot decide, which is the best best buy among Apple MacBook (12-inch, 2015), Apple MacBook Air (13-inch, 2015) and Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (13-inch, 2015). While the 12-inch MacBook has attracted several buyers for its performance and design, users have also complained about the missing features like lack of connections or ports, poor battery and exorbitant price.
While the 12-inch MacBook has received mixed opinion from users, MacBook Air 13-inch is a good choice for people, who wants to experience MacBook features at a price of only $999.
According to CNET, this device also needs praises for its battery life but it is not a worthy choice for all. The wide bezel and the less impressive screen resolution has garnered negative feedback from many buyers.
Third and the last model introduced so far, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is surely the ultimate choice for anyone. Its low weight and thin build makes it the perfect portable laptop. Not just that, it also boasts of high-screen resolution, multiple connections and ports as well as a long battery life. Buyers will also surely praise the looks of the device.
Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has taken up the market by storm soon after its release and it seems that the company still has many surprises in store. If Cupertino’s reports are to be believed, Apple Loop indicates that the company has decided to terminate the iOS 8.2 and it will be compulsory for all users to get their devices upgraded to iOS8.3.
The reports also indicate that new iOS is expected to be free from bugs of older versions and is expected to offer improved performance. However, this is not all, there are speculations that the company will release three new handsets shortly.
The much hyped Apple iPhone 7 is expected to be launched sometimes in September and may be soon joined by iPhone7 Plus. Though the phones may not drastically apart from iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus, they are believed to have improved features. The company may also stop the production of iPhone 5S and 5C.
Instead it may bring an all-new iPhone 7 mini with a four-inch-screen. Though there is much-hype regarding the iPhones, rumors suggest that the company may also bring some modifications in iPad features.
The upcoming model of iPad may have a larger screen of 12-inches for ease of use and may even include some improved features. While the Apple iPhone and iPad has been in the news over the last week, users also praised the tattoo issue of Apple Watch for now.
Apple might just offer us too many iPhone options this year. After much buzz around the iPhone 7 launch, internal sources are predicting the Apple iPhone 6S might hit the markets this September.
Before you get your hopes high, remember that there is no official confirmation but we did hear that the flagship will feature a novel spec– the Apple SIM, according to Apple Insider. Perhaps all the jailbreaks got the Cupertino giant worried.
If this indeed becomes true, the iPhone 6S could be faster and sexier than what the A8 chipsets allowed on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Further scoop here reveals a probable tie up between Apple and Samsung to manufacture the chipset.
Apple is upping its innovation game with never before seen before specs such as the Force Touch and the display resistant tech Corning Project Phire.For Apple fans and critics there is a lot to look forward Only thing we wish is for Apple to up its ante in design area.
