The Bolder Samsung Galaxy S4: Sexy Since 2012-Samsung Never Fails To Draw Out Charm

We thought the rumor mills would relax a bit now that the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is just a short wait, but nope, here’s more dope on the upcoming flagship by the world’s leading smartphone maker. Just when we thought we’d heard all there was about the phone comes the latest rumor that Samsung could feature the floating touch technology on its brand new phone.

This means you can access stuff on your phone without making physical contact with the screen – sensors in the screen will detect your finger by the electrical field created. It’s kind of like the Air View used in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, where you can open an e-mail by letting the S-Pen hover over the notification icon. Another phone which has a similar feature is Sony’s Xperia Sola.

We’ve also heard that the Galaxy S4’s screen could use phosphorescent materials for the red and green LEDs and fluorescent blue OLEDs, rather than using green and blue flourescent OLEDs and just red phosphorescent OLEDs. This Green PHOLED screen has a 25 percent higher power efficiency than a regular AMOLED screen, giving the phone a better battery life.

Another speculation is that Samsung could launch two Galaxy S4 models – one with an LCD display and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and another with an AMOLED screen and a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor. Whether both these models will sell in the same regions is also not known. But we do know that the Galaxy S4 will run on Android 4.2.1 when released and users will be able to upgrade to Android 4.2.2 shortly after.… Read the rest

Nokia Lumia 920 Vs Samsung Galaxy S4(Rumored) Vs Blackberry 10: The Superphone Battle Is On

The year has barely begun but it’s already promising to be full of surprises for the smartphone lovers. Windows Phone 8 came out just a couple of months ago, and the Nokia Lumia 920 is already garnering significant attention. However, our immediate focus is on RIM’s upcoming launch of their latest OS, the BlackBerry 10. Add to that the rumors about Samsung launching its new Galaxy S4 in the coming few months, and you can imagine why we’re so worked up! So we decided to compare these three phones to see which of these you need to watch out for in 2013:

Nokia Lumia 920: We’re starting with the Lumia 920 since it’s already been launched and has been something of a face-saver for Nokia. With a 4.5-inch HD screen and a 331 ppi resolution, it’s a treat to view stuff on the Lumia 920. We have fallen head over heels for its bright, quirky colored body, making the phone a bit of a fashion statement too. Powered by Windows Phone 8, the Lumia 920 has a 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. The phone is equipped with a 8 MP rear camera that can even record videos at 1080p resolution. Connect the Lumia 920 to the internet on 4G networks to enjoy superfast browsing speeds on the go. With 32 GB of internal storage, the only thing missing was a microSD card slot on the Lumia 920. With over 100,000 apps on offer, Windows Phone Marketplace will ensure that you remain hooked onto this phone.

RIM BlackBerry 10: One of the biggest disappointments of this phone, even before it launches, is the lack of 4G connectivity. With a 4.2-inch display, it’s not as big as the Lumia 920, but it does have a better ppi count of 355 ppi, which makes for sharper reproduction of images. While we are not sure of the processor within the BlackBerry 10, what we do know is that it will have 1 GB of RAM, which gives it equal footing in this comparison with the Nokia Lumia 920. With 16 GB of internal storage as well as a microSD card slot, we do think RIM’s been more thoughtful than Nokia in this aspect. However, with only over 40,000 apps on offer, the BlackBerry Apps World has far more limited choices than for Windows Phone 8 users.

Samsung Galaxy S4: Even though Samsung hasn’t yet confirmed any of the rumors we’ve been hearing about the Galaxy S4, we’re hoping to see the successor of the popular Galaxy S3 to have a 5-inch display, a quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. As is Samsung’s design, we can hope to see even a microSD card slot in this phone. According to rumors, the Galaxy S4 will run on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which is expected to be launched sometime by May 2013. We’re not sure if this phone will also work with an S-Pen, like the Galaxy Note 2 though. But with hundreds of thousands of apps, the Android-based Samsung Galaxy S4 will definitely be worth the wait!… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 2: Will it be the Next Bestseller from Samsung?

The year has barely begun when the tech world has become abuzz with rumors about what Samsung will bring out next. After the much celebrated success of the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Note 2, tech fans are eagerly awaiting the Galaxy S4. So, we decided to jump on the bandwagon and compare the upcoming (rumored) Galaxy S4 with the current hottest Samsung device, the Galaxy Note 2.

There are many rumors that peg the release date of the Galaxy S4 as sometime in end-February, during Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona. However, Samsung has not yet confirmed any of these rumors, so we’re not really sure if there’s any truth in them. Given that the Galaxy Note 2 was launched in late 2012, it comes as no surprise that it will end up competing against the Galaxy S4, whenever it releases.

Dimensions: The Galaxy Note 2 has a separate niche for itself in the range of phablets – too big to be just a smartphone, but smaller than a tablet with its 5.55-inch display. However, we are expecting the Galaxy S4 to be smaller than the Galaxy Note 2 and have dimensions more comparable with its predecessor, the Galaxy S3. What we can expect, however, is that it would have a larger display but a slimmer body than the S3.

Display: According to rumors, the Galaxy S4 could have a 4.99-inch or a 5-inch display. The Galaxy S4 display is rumored to have a 1080p resolution and a count of 440 pixels per inch, similar to the Droid DNA, which makes visuals stand out far better than on the Galaxy Note 2.

Camera: Samsung has fitted the Galaxy Note 2 with an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera. With every step towards improvement, it’s not surprising that the camera in the upcoming Galaxy S4 would be more powerful. We’re hearing that it could have a 13 MP rear camera.

Processing power: With a quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note 2 is all about power in your palms. If this is anything to go by, we’re hoping to see a similar configuration even in the Galaxy S4. In addition, hopefully, Samsung will include a wireless charging feature on the Galaxy S4 – something that’s missing in the Galaxy Note 2, but already available as an option on its other competitors.

OS: The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which also includes the Google Now feature, and is a huge step over the previous Android 4.0 ICS. In addition, Samsung has put in TouchWiz feature over the OS, which gives the phablet many additional features like Multi-Window View. Samsung could even offer an upgrade to Android 4.2 for the Galaxy Note 2. On the other hand, the Galaxy S4 could run on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which is expected to release sometime in May 2013.
