Samsung Galaxy S4 Officially Announced Today, Shipping in April and May

Samsung officially unveiled the long-awaited Galaxy S4 at a large event at Radio City Music Hall in New York City today, the phone includes a number of upgrades from the Galaxy S 3, which has surged to become the bestselling Android phone on the market and the leading competitor to Apple’s iPhone.

Better than Galaxy S3 (Specs Comparison)

The Galaxy S4 handset steadily draws from the same design language as the S3, but takes almost every spec to an extreme — the screen is larger (5 inches), the resolution greater (1080p), the battery capacity higher (2,600mAh), the processor faster (1.9GHz quad-core or 1.6GHz octa-core), and the rear-facing camera stuffed with more megapixels (13, to be exact).

Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Touch Wiz

The Galaxy S4 runs none other than Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the most up-to-date version of Android you can get right now. Riding on top of it as usual is Samsung’s Touch Wiz overlay, a customized interface that I, for one, think is getting a little long in the tooth.

Air View and Gestures

You can not only hover with a fingertip, but also wave or wipe your whole hand in front of the screen (and camera sensor) to navigate around. Hover your finger or wipe your whole hand, you can preview a video clip or image from the photo gallery, glance at browser tab thumbnails, find your place on a video timeline, and check out an e-mail. Flipboard has built a customized app to work with Air View, which lets you hover over a tile to see which articles lie beneath.

IR Blaster as Remote Control

Samsung has put an IR blaster on its phone so you can use it as a remote control for your TV. With the software you can see images of upcoming programs and control a DVR.

S Health Scale

The companion wireless scale that looks quite a bit like the Fitbit Aria is just one part of the larger S Health equation which also includes a Jawbone Up-like monitor (S Band).The scale of course sync with the baked in S Health app over Bluetooth, which makes it quite a bit easier to track how that diet of yours is going. In addition to simply tracking your total poundage, there will be bands for tracking heart rate and the S 4’s various sensor can help judge the comfort level of your environment.

Amazing 13-megapixel Camera

Samsung has also made vast improvements to its camera technology. The Galaxy S4 has a built-in 13-megapixel camera, up from the Galaxy S III’s 8-megapixel sensor, which uses new camera functions Dual Shot, Eraser, Drama Shot, and Sound & Shot. Dual Shot allows you to capture images from both the front and rear cameras simultaneously

S Translate

The Galaxy S4 ships with S Translate, a baked-in realtime translator that supports 9 different languages. The new S Translate feature offers real-time translation – simply type the question in English and it will translate it audibly. It can do the same thing in reverse, so that when you receive an answer it will translate it and present you with the answer as text.

Pricing and Availability

Samsung plans to stagger releases worldwide in April and May. In the U.S., Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Cricket Wireless will all get the Galaxy S4 (along with Sprint MVNO Ting). Samsung hasn’t yet shared plans for other countries.

Since it differs by region and by carrier, Samsung hasn’t announced the price yet, but you can expect comparable pricing in your area for the GS3.

Surprisingly enough for a tablet, Sony Xperia Tablet Z has a primary camera with an 8 megapixel Exmor R sensor and full HD video recording capabilities, while the front-facing 2 megapixel camera has HD video recording support, ideal for video calls.

HTC One Smartphone Comes with All-metal Body, a Snazzy Camera, Improved Audio and Other Powerful Features

Filed under: new phones,Technology News — Tags: , , , , , , , — Polly @ 05:09

HTC Corp. on Tuesday unveiled its latest smart phone – the HTC One, an Android device that comes with all-metal body, snazzy camera, improved audio, impressive UI and other powerful features. Frankly speaking, this year will be a critical one for HTC, which needs to prove that it can still compete in the increasingly duopolistic market and compete with the best smartphone offerings from Apple, lG, Nokia and Samsung. HTC hopes to change that reality with the new flagship HTC One which will be available soon.

All-metal Body Design: HTC’s design and software teams did their jobs in creating an attractive, unique, and premium-feeling phone, taking Apple’s love for metal construction and taking it to the next logical progression.

Impressive Display: It features a dazzling 4.7-inch 1080p HD Gorilla Glass display. The result is a pixel-dense LCD panel that looks gorgeous and outclasses Apple’s Retina Display by a mile

Snazzy Camera: The HTC One camera is called the HTC UltraPixel Camera, it has an F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens, and can capture full 1080p video, We were told that the camera is capable of capturing 300% more light so that it works better in low-light conditions.

Improved Audio: The HTC One comes built with two front-facing stereo speakers, along with a dedicated amplifier and Beats Audio, from what I could tell, the phone could indeed have a better volume level than the typically terrible sound that most smartphones have.

High-performing Processor: The phone will ship with a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, producing smooth and speedy running experience.

Snappy UI: Special emphasis was put on the new home screen interface, called HTC BlinkFeed, the BlinkFeed home page does look rather impressive: three large rectangular windows showed various graphic presentations of news, video, etc.

Operating System: The HTC One is not running the latest build of Android (4.2), but a version released earlier in 2012 (4.1). However it is good enough for common usage.

Long Battery: It is powered by a 2300 mAh Li-Poly battery, which should be enough to get full-day use out of the phone.

Price and Availability: HTC expects to start selling the phone worldwide in March at more than 85 mobile operators. In the U.S., the list includes AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, but notably not Verizon Wireless, which recently launched HTC’s Droid DNA phone. Reportedly, prices will be $199.99 for the 32GB model and $299.99 for the 64GB model; however, that hasn’t been confirmed.

With its One X, HTC made one of the finest smartphones of 2012. Unfortunately, the device’s limited availability and lackluster marketing kept it from achieving mainstream success — particularly next to near-ubiquitous competitors like Samsung’s Galaxy S III. Now is HTC on the right path to success with the forthcoming HTC One? We will pay a great attention when the phone actually goes on the market.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Spotted In Benchmark Tests With Eight-Core Exynos 5 Octa CPU, Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s heavily rumored successor to the Galaxy S3 and it has popped up in rumors many times over the last few weeks. This time, the highly-anticipated Galaxy S4 has been spotted in benchmark logs, which confirm an Exynos 5 Octa CPU and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean for the smartphone.

The numbers appeared on AnTuTu, a database of processor benchmark scores testing the performance of phones and tablets. A Korean phone called the SHV-E300S and a British phone called the GT-I9500 both showed up in the results. They could be the local and intentional modes of Samsung Galaxy S4.

The main focus here is the Exynos 5 Octa, the eight-core processor which will, according to this benchmark logs, certainly be featured on the Galaxy S4. It could well be the recently announced Samsung Exynos 5 Octa, an eight-core chip that switches between four beefy high-speed cores and four slower cores that use less power for everyday tasks. As for the OS, obviously Samsung will try to bring in the latest stable OS version Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean to their users when it comes to their flagship device, and Samsung won’t disappoint on the operating system front when it comes out.

Aside from a cutting-edge processor, Galaxy S4 is also mooted to feature a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with a full HD resolution, a 13-megapixel camera, S-Pen stylus support and Galaxy Note and wireless charging capabilities.

Many of those rumors suggested that Samsung would be announcing the Galaxy S4 at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, but it appears that that may not be the case. Samsung is hotly expected to announce the S4 in April at one of its unpacked events, followed by a global launch in early May.
