Korean tech giant Samsung is lacing it boots tight, yet again to launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. With the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone generating some good buzz, the latest Samsung Note 4 features are expected to be as interesting.
This device should come with IP67 rating this time. We hear that the Note 4 could be water and dust resistant on lines of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The exterior could be the same as the preceding version.
The Note 4 could be beefed up in terms of size over its predecessor. However, the screen could be something never-before-seen. Samsung will bid goodbye to Super AMOLED this time.
The third feature, which could make its way into the Galaxy 4, is a bendable screen along with curved battery to fit in with the look of the device. Although it is yet to be official, the Note 4 could come laced with retina scanner for heightened security.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled a few days ago while the Galaxy Note 3 has been in the market for quite some time now.
In the design department, both high-end devices are similar in more ways than one. The Galaxy Note 3 looks a little more rectangular than the Galaxy S5. Essentially, the Galaxy S5 sports a faintly bigger and stunning 5.1-inch screen display. One striking difference between the two devices is the inclusion of fingerprint scanner in the Galaxy S5 which is found at the home button of the newly launched device. Though both the devices are much similar with respect to weight and thickness, the Galaxy Note 3 is slightly larger.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 carries the second biggest screen in this comparison but it is not as large as the Nexus 5 or the Galaxy S4. Though the screen size of the Galaxy S5 is close to that of the Note 3, the S5 does not include a S –Pen stylus, found in Note devices. Also, the Galaxy S5 is faintly thicker as opposed to its predecessor S4 but still thinner as compared to the Galaxy Note 3. S5 is powered by a 2.5 GHz 800 CPU while the Note 3 comes powered by a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processing unit as well as Adreno 330 GPU.… Read the rest
Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is gearing for the launch of the much anticipated iPhone 6 that is expected to happen in September this year. On the other hand, the Korean handset maker has already unveiled its new flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S5 at the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona. The Korean smartphone maker has introduced quite a few changes in the flagship Galaxy S5 as opposed to the predecessor. The Galaxy S5’s features have now been revealed.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 does not have anything significantly different from the Galaxy S4 and this is one reason why buyers can wait for the iPhone 6. Also, the newly unveiled Galaxy S5 carries a similar, if not the same look as the predecessor S4 model. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature an arresting new design and also a bigger display screen, possibly a 4.5-inch display. The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs in a heart rate monitor which is quite useful to sports enthusiasts and also a fingerprint scanner and a camera autofocus are baked in. However, camera autofocus feature is already found in the iPhone 5S model, which is currently on sale worldwide. Thus, buyers can instead wait for the iPhone 6 than grab the Galaxy S5 once it is launched.
Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G Pro 2 were recently launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 24. These phones will compete with the Sony Xperia Z2, which is yet to be launched. Now that we know the Samsung Galaxy S5 features and LG G Pro 2 specifications, lets see how they compare alongside the expected features of the Sony phone.
Samsung Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch full HD screen with the Super AMOLED panel, while Z2 comes with 5.2-inches full HD screen and LG G Pro 2 with the biggest 5.9-inches full HD screen. The S5 boasts the plastic body and has a heart-rate monitor just below the camera module. The Pro 2 has an extra slim bezel of 3.3mm, while the Xperia Z2 is expected to be similar to the Z1. Just like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 is also expected to be dust and water-resistant. However, this feature is missing in the LG G Pro 2.
Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is available with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC with 2GB RAM. However, many gadget lovers were expecting the new Exynos processor with 3GB RAM in the phone. Meanwhile, the Sony Xperia Z2 should be equipped with 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and Adreno 330 GPU, and the LG G Pro 2 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2.26 GHz quad-core and Adreno 330 GPU as well as 3 GB RAM.
All the three smartphones have high resolution cameras. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is available with a 16MP camera with 4K video shoot feature, while Xperia Z2 is expected to come with a 20.3MP camera with 4K recording support and the LG G Pro 2 is equipped with a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization.
All the three phones have almost similar specifications and features. The deciding factor would only be its pricing. While their prices remain unknown for now, it’s clear that they will be on the higher side.… Read the rest

The launch of the Galaxy S5 smartphone has been pre-poned by nearly three weeks after Samsung Galaxy S4’s sales turned out to be weaker as expected.
The world’s leading smartphone maker, Samsung Electronics starts at a poor mobile yearly profit growth first time in seven years even as it faces stiff competition from tech major Apple Inc and also some emerging Chinese vendors. It is also aware that growth for top level smartphones is easing out owing to almost saturation in several markets.
