Archive for the ‘Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005’ tag
Over the weekend, the folks at Sam Mobile leaked a test firmware for the Note 3 deemed as close to final, and now Samsung has begun pushing out the same firmware via the Kies companion software. This update is said to bring very few UI changes but lots of changes under the hood to improve performance.The most visible change is the move to all white status icons, in line with the design of stock Android 4.4 KitKat.
The Galaxy Note Mini or the codenamed Galaxy Neo has been rumoured since almost a month now. The image was posted by SamMobiles is said to show the 5.55-inch Note 3 Neo next to the 5.7-inch Note 3. There’s always the chance that the image is fake or that the device is a prototype or a fake imitation, but it looks pretty legit to us.
We have some more pictures for you, the back looks pretty similar with the faux leather back with differences near the camera module. The Note 3 Neo will come with a Samsung-made hexa-core processor and run Android 4.3 out of the box, but the rest of the specs are almost identical with the 2012 Note 2.
This time around it appears that sources within HP have talked to 9to5Google telling the publication that an HP Android handset that will resemble Samsung’s Galaxy Note will be launched “as soon as next week” with a price of around $200 – Unlocked!
This entire device screams that it’s perfect for emerging markets that deal more in prepay connections. Please tell me how excited are you to see a Galaxy Note rival made by HP!
The Note lineup has much been the Boss of Android flagships and Samsung cannot help but give this device special treatment. Samsung usually dedicates a lot of research into every iteration of their Note devices and rumours have it that the Note 4 is going to get even more surprising.
Samsung had unveiled their early prototypes of rounded displays last year and it seems that they have just got the technology ready to be incorporated for mass production. However, what is concerning is that will it really make sense to take a huge design overhaul considering their Galaxy Round hasn’t really taken off well.
Well rumours turned out to be true and Samsung did launch 4 new Galaxy Pro models with top of the line hardware. Not only that, these tablets come with Android Kitkat 4.4 with a new touchwiz UI with a card boasting interface and better multitasking than before.
Things here in the leak that came from @evleaks today look more like a phone UX, probably to be featured on the next flagship and yes the new font is a refreshing change but it undeniably looks more flat and iOS like ever. Is this how the Galaxy S5 could appear? Could be, we are just months far from knowing the reality. There is no way to confirm the authenticity of these shots as of now.
Very often it’s difficult to pick a perfect Android phone, you might be having a blazing fast S4 but might envy the sheer metal body of the HTC One. After almost years of consumer disliking and ranting, the “plasticy” Galaxy phones get a hefty cousin.
The Korean reporter, ETNews reported that Samsung plans to make a high end metal smartphone: the Galaxy F. The phone will be decked out with a metal exterior, and should be launched around the same time as the highly awaited Galaxy S5.
We do want to see Samsung do this since long, how premium? With time, will we know.
We’ve been hearing about an extra large tablet coming from Samsung almost from July with a rumoured 12.2 inch form factor. Today we have a few hardware specifics, and hear some new rumors about launch plans.
The tablet is expected to have a Snapdragon 800 at the heart of it, 3GB of RAM and a large 9500mAh battery to power a huge 12.2 inch 2560*1600 display which is a 2K display. Expected launch dates are mid-Feb 2014, with some sources saying this tablet could be shown off at CES 2014.
What you get an 8-way D-pad, two analog sticks, four action buttons, two trigger buttons, a Select button, a Start button, and a special Play button that launches Samsung’s catalog of compatible games.
For pairing up with this Gamepad you need Android 4.1 and above with support for Bluetooth 3 or higher, NFC, and the HID standard. This controller is now only available throughout Europe but should hit other markets soon.
Reports also state that Samsung is relying and predicting that the Note 3 Lite would account for 30% of it’s Sales! When it comes to specs, less is know but the Note 3 Lite would apparently have a similar 5.68 Display for optimal S-Pen usability but would feature an LCD Screen and an 8 MP Camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lite would see the light of day during Mobile World Congress 2014 is what rumours suggest.
The Note 3 is no exception – Samsung is currently offering the S Pen-enabled device in the classic black and white options .Sam Mobile is reporting with some insider information about two new color versions coming in early 2014. A red version of the Galaxy Note 3 will become available in the first week of the year, with a white gold version set to follow two weeks later.
