Rumour : Fingerprint Scanner Replaces Iris Scanner On the Galaxy S5!

without comments

fingerprints-scanner-sensor-2-645x407A Korean publication came out boldly saying that they have some confirmed news about the Samsung ditching the iris scanner for a fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S5.

The reason stated is that Samsung found it not mature enough for deployment. “Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition” said the unnamed source.

Samsung is rumoured to bring a fingerprint scanner built right into the display but it is not yet confirmed that this type of technology would be seen.

without comments

gs4-442-upNovember 2013 was when a report suggested that Samsung would come out with 4.4 Kitkat pretty soon for it’s flaghsip Galaxy S4 and it’s yet just not a reality.

SamMobile as always has got their hands on the Kitkr ROM before it’s official rollout and here is what the first impression suggests : users get a new keyboard, updated lockscreen, and that status bar battery indicator has a new color scheme. Performance also sees a minor tweak, at least according to some preliminary benchmark tests.

As Samsung usually takes its time rolling our these updates, we are not really positive on getting one any soon.

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.

New Exynos 64 Bit Chip Ready For CES 2014?

without comments

samsung-exynos-teaser-ces-2014CES 2014 is just around the corner and Samsung has already started teasing their new Exynos chip that would be unveiled at the event.The tweet also included an image (see above), with a clear indication that on January 7, 2014, Samsung will make some sort of Exynos announcement – the tagline used is “Flying even higher in 2014.”

That could mean that their new processors could be a logical “level up” and hence have 64 bit support? Considering that they had officially announced that they are working on one, we could very well see a 64 bit Exynos 6 ?

Samsung Could Just Bring The 2nd Gen Galaxy Camera!

without comments

samsung-galaxy-cameraWhile 2014 bought Samsungs Pro-like NX camera to the masses, it’s not really something to go for at the price. The S4 Zoom too did not take off that well since they failed to be good camera’s at first!

Last month, however, an image turned up that seemed to be snapped by Samsung’s EK-GC200 – and the first Galaxy Camera was the EK-GC100. The successor here that we are dealing with may note be called the “Galaxy Camera 2″ but the model number indicates the same , it would be a “Digital Camera With WIFI 802.11abgn+BT LE4.0+GPS receive+NFC passive.”

Samsung May Have Just Tipped Launch of the GS5

without comments

samsung-skyline-lg1There are a lot of theories about when Samsung may bring a follow-up to the current flagship and while theories do fluctuate all are clearly stating for an early date.

Some claims have looked to a January launch announcement, today’s rumor could be just a little more conservative, describing a Galaxy S 5 that could go up for sale in February or March.

A metal frame is something that Samsung is looking forward too this time with rumours of a cheaper Plastic variant of the Galaxy s5 too.
