The world’s largest PC vendor, Lenovo, has been making quite the splash in the smartphone market and their latest offering continues the company’s legacy of some pretty decent, unique devices. Don’t count on another Intel Atom based smartphone though, no the Lenovo Vibe X is a different kind of beast.
The Lenovo Vibe X, or IdeaPhone S960, is aimed directly at the Huawei Ascend P6, currently touted as the world’s thinnest smartphone at 6.18mm. The Vibe X however is a bit thicker at 6.9mm. The Lenovo Vibe X packs quite the punch in its slim body however with a 5-inch FHD display, a 1.5GHz quad core MediaTek SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 2,000mAh battery as well as a 13MP rear facing camera and 5MP front facing camera. The Lenovo Vibe X features a premium polycarbonate plastic body along with Gorilla Glass 3 to keep your screen covered. Sadly it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean instead of the newer Android 4.3, although an update in the future is more than likely.
Another sad part is that the Lenovo Vibe X is unlikely to hit the US or European markets, but it is more than likely to hit Indian consumers, who have welcomed the Lenovo K900 with open arms and hearts.
Samsung’s Unpacked Part II event has just finished off and the South Koreans spared little expense to announce their latest Galaxy Note line as well as their entry into the modern smartwatch game in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition has been unveiled and curiously enough it is quite the improvement over last year’s model, but can it compete with the current and next generation iPads? Let’s explore. The Galaxy Note 10.1 doesn’t have looks going for it, but then again, it’s the inside that matters. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 features a 10.1-inch WQXGA display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB of expandable storage, an 8MP rear camera with a BSI sensor as well as a hefty 8,220mAh and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Samsung also announced the much anticipated Galaxy Note III phablet which came with little surprises. The Galaxy Note III comes with a hefty 5.7-inch FHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of expandable storage, a 13MP rear camera with 4K video recording capabilities, a 3,300mAh battery as well as an intriguing composite leather rear cover, with the rest of the body being the usual plastic build Samsung is known for. Both the smaller and larger Note devices include the usual S Pen stylus.
Samsung finally took the wraps off of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, which turned out nothing like it was rumoured. The first nail in its coffin is that it only supports the two Galaxy Note devices above that features Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the following nail in its coffin is it’s hefty $299 that is substantially higher than any of Samsung’s competitors’ offerings. The Galaxy Gear features a 1.68-inch 320p display, a 800MHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a 1.9MP camera on the strap with a BSI sensor as well as a 315mAh battery which is quoted to last about a day. It will come in Jet Black, Mocha Grey, Rose Gold, Wild Orange, Oatmeal Beige and Lime Green colour options when it launches later this year.

Samsung’s long rumoured Galaxy Gear smartwatch may have leaked just days before its set to launch. VentureBeat managed to capture some images of the clunky appearing device.

The Meizu MX3 is quite the beast compared to most smartphones available on the market today. What can $650 get you nowadays you ask? Well, the guys at Meizu seems to think that their 128GB variant of the newly launched Meizu MX3 will wholeheartedly answer that question. The company’s latest flagship features a 5.1-inch 1,800×1,080p display, a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 8MP Sony Exmor camera and a 2,400mAh battery. What’s not to like?

The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch is all but confirmed at this stage after EVLeaks posted some screenshots of the upcoming wearable’s smartphone companion and control application; the Samsung Gear Manager, which confirms the name as well as some of the device’s features.
It seems as though Samsung might be leading the smartwatch race, but then again the early bird may catch the worm, but it is the second mouse that gets the cheese. The Galaxy Gear, going by the model name SM-V700, is set to launch alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note III next week at the company’s pre-IFA 2013 Unpacked Part II event. The device’s control application, the Samsung Gear Manager has leaked courtesy of EVLeaks confirming that the device will in fact feature NFC, Bluetooth and some other lovely tidbits. What the company’s exact plans with the watch is, remains uncertain, but they are likely to want to start the trend, just as they did with the Galaxy Note and phablets.
Are you excited to see what Samsung has in store for us with the Galaxy Gear or are you waiting for the iWatch?
Just when you think you have seen it all, they go and out do themselves. It seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will feature minor design changes from its predecessor, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4. The Galaxy Note III looks adorable, and is likely to sell in the millions even with its extreme 5.68-inch display.
A new leaked image portraying the Samsung Galaxy Note III’s display assembly has surfaced courtesy of ETradeSupply and seems to resemble its predecessor quite a lot. The Galaxy Note III will apparently feature a super slim 2.2mm side bezel making, shoving it right back into the LG G2′s face. Apparently the upcoming ‘phablet’ will feature 4K video recording, you know because that is the new in thing and everyone has $1,000 for a silly TV. In other news the Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note III seems to have been confirmed for September 4 by a Samsung executive, so no need to be so agitated anymore.
Of course, Huawei’s Ascend Mate has a larger screen than the Samsung Galaxy Note III and cost probably half as much, so why pay so much more?
Great news to all those hardworking parents out there. The end of the month is nearing which is obviously code for ‘time-when-your-kids-spend-all-of-your-hard-earned-cash’ and so it seems Samsung is preparing a great little gift for your little guy or girl to keep them busy while you catch up the latest episode of Breaking Bad or read Fifty Shades of Grey for the seventy-third time.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids has leaked courtesy of MovePlayer and is apparently the first usable ‘tablet-for-kids.’ The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids, which would have sounded better as the Galaxy Tab 4 Kids, will feature a 8.5-inch screen with a terrible resolution, a slow dual core processor, just 1GB of RAM and just 8GB of storage, but quite the powerhouse with a 4,000mAh battery, we’re leaning towards Android 1.6 Donut working in the background, but whatever powers it, a Kid-centred UI will definitely all over that. The Galaxy Tab 3 Kids will seemingly not be resistant to chocolate milk, cookie batter or the odd soda, even if its the sugar free offering.
No word on pricing or an exact launch date, or even if it will be on sale outside of South Korea, as of yet, but I will bet the Nexus 7 will offer a little more bang for buck, heck kids nowadays will probably hack the thing to run Symbian anyway, you know, for good ‘ol Bounce.
Samsung’s smartwatch has been rumoured since leaks suggesting that Apple was working on an iWatch, it’s been called that Galaxy Altius and now the Galaxy Gear, but what we have been waiting for most has been what exactly will be inside of the upcoming Samsung smartwatch, until now.
GigaOM has gotten their hands on some alleged specifications for the upcoming device and along with previous alleged leaks we can finally formulate a bigger spec sheet. The Samsung Galaxy Gear will apparently feature a 2.5-inch square OLED display with a 320×320 pixel resolution and a 3-inch body, inside it will allegedly feature a 1.5GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 4212 processor, 1GB of RAM, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE as well as run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. What’s more the Galaxy Gear will apparently feature a 2MP as well as a accelerometer to turn the device on when lifter. The Galaxy Gear will apparently come in different variant for developers to try write applications on.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear is rumoured to be launched on September 4 at Samsung’s pre-IFA Unpacked Part 2 event in Berlin.
It seems that Samsung may lead the smartwatch race after all. According to new whispers, sparked by SamMobile’s inside sources, Samsung is set to launch their smartwatch, called the Samsung Galaxy Gear, as soon as early next month their pre-IFA 2013 Unpacked Part 2 event.
Smartwatches are set to be the biggest thing since the invention of popcorn by the squirrel from Ice Age and it seems that Samsung may very well lead this race. The South Koreans will apparently launch their Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch at their Unpacked Part 2 event in Berlin on September 4. The event is also set to feature the company’s new Samsung Galaxy Note III, the third generation ‘phablet’, a category they also sparked growth in despite previous attempts by other companies. Little is known about the Galaxy Gear, but rumours indicate that the patent filing above is quite accurate as the Galaxy Gear will supposedly feature two hardware buttons together with a flexible display.
Whether or not these rumours are true, Samsung might just one-up Apple by launching a mass market offering first. Share your opinions below!
2013 may be the year of the snake, but 2014 will most definitely be the year of the smartwatch. Rumours that most of the known universe will be launching a smartwatch of their own has ensured that a huge hype surrounds any new information that should arise regarding any such products, so what about official confirmation, and a name, of what Samsung’s up to?
According to a recent trademark filing obtained by Galaxy Club, a Dutch publication, Samsung will be naming their own smartwatch the Samsung Galaxy Gear, and it sure does have a ring to it. The Galaxy Gear trademark was filed at the end of June and granted just a month later, giving Samsung the go ahead to launch such a product, maybe even this year! The device is described as follow; “Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers.”
Is Samsung preparing to announce their smartwatch soon, maybe at their Unpacked event next month alongside the long awaited Samsung Galaxy Note III? Or maybe they’ll hold out a little bit longer as to not make the same mistake they made with the original Galaxy Tab 10.1, now named the Galaxy Tab 10.1v after Samsung reworked the device following the Apple iPad 2 launch.
