Only a few days after photos of a purple Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone were leaked , Sony has finally confirmed that there is indeed a purple version of its latest flagship smartphone. The company calls it officially as the Xperia Z3 Purple Diamond Edition which is expected to catch the attention of a lot of ladies who love the color.
The first time we heard about the coming Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset was when it and its sister platform the Snapdragon 808 were unveiled in April of this year . Since that unveil, some rumors have circulated that suggest Qualcomm has hit a few snags with the new chipsets and that the products will be late to market.
Just three days ago, Google announced the arrival of Android 5.1 and even highlighted some of the new feature for users. Although the Nexus devices are unsurprisingly first in line to get the update, roll out is equally unsurprisingly slow. That said, there is one huge reason why Nexus 6 owners might be excited to get the update, or even tempted to sideload it themselves, as soon as possible.
There is nothing OEMs, even Samsung, should be afraid of when it comes to the Snapdragon 810. That is the sentiment aired by Woo Ram-chan, LG VP for mobile product planning when asked about the rumors that Qualcomm's latest chip was tested to be overheating.
Intrinsyc Technologies has just revealed a couple of developer devices, including a smartphone, a tablet, and a development board, all of which are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 . This will let application developers as well as device makers test and play around with Qualcomm 's multi-talented system-on-chip even before the first commercial devices hit the market, probably next year.
First you have to prove you're not a gimmick. Then it's just a matter of proving you're better. LG turned heads with the G Flex last year, an Android smartphone with a banana-like bend to it, only to be stung with criticism that its big idea was actually just too big for the hand.
Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, use the South Korean giant's very own Exynos SoC with the latest 14 nm manufacturing process technology. You won't find any Snapdragon model now because Samsung decided to utilize its own Exynos division on its latest phones unveiled at MWC 2015 earlier this week. The Samsung Galaxy S6 currently uses an Exynos 7420 chip.
Samsung has yet to announce the Samsung Galaxy A7 – still a part of its “A series” of phones which are out to prove that yes, Sammy can create metal-bound smartphones – but it has shown up rather predictably at the TENAA, or China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center.
If you’ve followed Samsung for a while, you know that they like to put out two variants of their flagship phones – one usually armed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which usually is the international version.
Our Internet connections are getting crowded. With more and more people using the Internet, some on more than just one or two devices, networks are getting overloaded and over burdened. That problem is a bigger one for mobile carriers because their bandwidths are limited to a certain spectrum that they pay for.
It's rumors like this that make you wonder if there's more to the breakup between Samsung and Qualcomm than first believed. It is, after all, not exactly unreasonable for the Korean manufacturer to push its own Exynos chips to the forefront, but little did we expect that it might be pushing Qualcomm out of its products in more ways than one.
Tenna strikes again, releasing information about the Galaxy A7 before Samsung can officially announce the device on its own. This is Samsung's thinnest smartphone - the thinnest phone they've ever made, that is to say - and it may be pushing clues as to what the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have in store. Metal, for starters - metal-rimmed, not unlike the Galaxy Note 4 - and a body that's 6.3mm thin.
Samsung seems to be really moving away from Qualcomm . Remember those talks about Samsung no longer using Qualcomm products because of overheating issues ? The South Korean giant didn't use a Snapdragon on the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The company decided to utilize its Exynos chipsetinstead.
We have been talking about the Samsung Galaxy A7 for quite a bit now, even as the new super-slim metallic smartphone has already been approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center – which probably means it’s launching in China soon. The US FCC has also approved the same model, but curiously, only a 3G model of the phone passed FCC’s tests.
According to a report, Apple is about to have Intel inside an upcomingiPhone model. While it won’t be the wholehearted effort Dell puts forth with Intel and mobile tech, Apple’s iPhone released in 2016 will reportedly have an Intel chip. The latest from Intel, their 7360 LTE modem, will reportedly have a home on the circuit board of 2016's iPhone.
The HTC One M9 is here, and it feels mighty familiar. The company’s new flagship, unveiled here at Mobile World Congress 2015 , takes the premium metal unibody of its predecessor and slots in a new chip, new camera, and tweaks what has already proved to be a popular design.
