Sony is announcing a new phone tomorrow that it wants to sell just for a feature that would help click high quality selfies. Sony shared the image above with the tagline “see your #selfies in a whole new light,” more than confirming the existence of such a device. The phone would be called the Xperia C3, we do not know the exact internal specifications of the Xperia C3 but from what we see in leaks, it has a rare front-facing LED flash alongwith a selfie assisting voice software for rear camera selfies.
Nokia’s Lumia is a great series when it comes to hardware since it has witnessed some of the most crazy innovations from a 41MP camera to a $99 smartphone. But there has been one consistently unanswered question everyone seems to ask – Android on a Lumia?
There were rumors of a an Android powered Lumia anlongside the 1020 and fast forward to today, we have a similar tip from @evleaks who states that there is an Android powered Lumia in works by “Nokia by Microsoft”. There are no other hardware details and it is expected to be so. This might just be in the conception phase but this is great news for everyone. Lumias are really handsome devices, if they ran Android it would be a compelling package indeed.
What do you’ll think? Which Lumia would you like to have Android on it?
Apple has called for assistance of Patrick Pruniaux, Tag Heuer’s Sales & Retail Vice President. Another source has confirmed that Patrick is leaving Tag to work with Apple on this particular project. This is particularly to make sure that the iWatch is a smashing success and will be working close to marketing and positioning the product to suit it’s audience.
The iWatch however is not seen as a threat to any Swiss watch manufacturer, infact and they believe that luxury watch sales should be unaffected by it. What do you have to say about Apple sourcing people from outside, do they lack the necessary expertise for a new segment or is this just to market it better?
We know most of what we are expecting from Apple this year - there are going to be two versions of the iPhone – both are known as the iPhone 6. Two credible reports now seem to confirm that these phones would launch on September 19th.
While, a new source is claiming that the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. Apparently the smaller 4.7inch version is the iPhone 6 and the bigger 5.5inch version will be called the iPhone Air. Again, this report claims a September 15th announcement. There are also additional rumors of an iPad Pro in the works – one for content creation professionals.
Even if these names don’t follow common naming convention, the dates seem practical. Which product are you expecting apart from the iPhone 6? An iWatch maybe?
A new press render leaked by the infamous @evleaks suggests how the four major carriers plan to carry the LG G3 is the US. Starting off from the left – we have the Verizon LG G3 first and it is the biggest disappointment of all since the carrier has managed to change the body a bit too much, enough to hide the awesome metallic finish. Following which we have the AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions – with the Sprint version being the least modified one.
Which one do you’ll like the most?
The offer is good considering that you are tied to T-mobile but it doesn’t include a long-term contract. This is the first place where you can buy this phone and the expected delivery date is June 21. The Lumia 635 is a great budget friendly device, also the first device to come with Windows Phone 8.1 which is a new OS with a couple of much needed features. A Snapdragon 400 Quad-core processor with 512 MB of RAM and 5MP rear camera also are onboard.
Head here if you are interested in the deal.
If you have taken out time to observe the new Android 5.0 L, then you’ll know that the buttons have been redesigned and look nothing like before. However, today we see evidence that might lead to a newer build of Android.
The following has been extracted from Google’s own servers. There are subtle changes to the back and home button too, but what my pull any existing Android users attention is the new multitasking button. On close observation one sees that it replicates a stack like design – just like the new multitasking on Android L itself.
But we do not know what Google is planning to do in this particular instance – was it a test build used for internal testing? Is it a new dot update to kitkat that we are yet to see? If Google gave you a choice, would you rather have these or the new ones?
The same phone is selling around $560 on Amazon and $600+ by other retailers. If you want a more than average camera experience attached to a smartphone body with all the connectivity features then this is the deal of the season for you. Stocks are limited from what we know so far.
Let us know if this helped you or would you rather not buy such a bulky phone?
The sad part first, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy S3 isn’t getting any KitKat love – it seems like Samsung has decided it’s too outdated in it’s life cycle to get it. The handsets that are getting KitKat are the Galaxy Grand Duos 2, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3 and the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. These updates have been tested already and now we should wait till we start seeing them roll out in the next few weeks.
Do you own an S3, what do you think about Samsung’s policy of updates?
We are getting closer to probably the most anticipated smartphone launch of the year. This is special and big for two reasons – all other OEMs have already released their flagships for this year and Apple is bringing a relatively new and big form factor to the iPhone 6 – probably the biggest bump in size since the inception of the iPhone.
So obviously we all hate waiting and thanks to a couple of sources that have manufactured dummies based on leaked dimensions, the final product is something like seem above and below :
Also a source that has had access to the iPhone 6 claims that the display would be a bit curved to enable a smooth transition from surface to surface. There will obviously be a difference between this and the final design, but we are pretty close to seeing a final prototype.
