    Samsung Galaxy Note 9 leaks, could be codenamed ‘Crown

    Samsung has already started working on the new Galaxy Note smartphone, expected to launch sometime this fall. Some details about the Galaxy Note 9 have surfaced online and a report by popular leaker Evan Blass reveals the codename the flagship device will carry. According to Blass, the Galaxy Note 9 is said to bear the codename ‘Crown’. The Galaxy Note 9 will succeed the Galaxy Note 8, which made its debut in August last year.

    This isn’t the first time we’re hearing that the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 codename is ‘Crown’. Last year, South Korean site The Investor reported that Samsung was developing the Galaxy Note 9 under the codename ‘Crown’. Samsung is calling the Galaxy Note 9 ‘Crown’ internally, which shows that the company wants to position its next flagship as the best phablet in the market. For example, the Galaxy Note 8 was codenamed ‘Baikal’ and this was used to highlight the phone’s gigantic edge-to-edge display. For those who’re not aware, Baikal is one of the largest lakes in Europe and Russia.

    The Galaxy Note 9 will hog all the limelight when it arrives later this year. After all, the flagship is likely going to compete with Apple’s 2018 iPhone X and Huawei’s next Mate smartphone. Expect the Galaxy Note 9 to feature the top-of-the-line spec sheet and features. The handset will use two different processors  – a Snapdragon 845 chipset and Samsung’s own Exynos processor — depending upon the market. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will likely come with a set of dual cameras on the rear. Plus, of course, the Galaxy Note 9 will also feature the S-Pen stylus which can be used to take notes.

    Shahid Kapoor And Shraddha Kapoor Promote Haider With Club Samsung

    Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor were spotted promoting their movie ‘Haider‘ at the launch of Club Samsung. While Shraddha Kapoor chose to wear an orange dress, Shahid Kapoor wore a black attire; black shirt and jeans and a long chain. Shraddha looked hot and Shahid looked cool.

    Shraddha Kapoor interacted with the media and said: “It is really cool that this app, this product that has come, is at the palm of your hands and you can stream whatever you like. Club Samsung makes life convenient, so that is awesome.”
    Famous singer duo Sajid- Wajid were also seen performing an act with comedian Cyrus Broacha.

    Haider releasing alongside ‘Bang Bang‘ on October 2, both are predicted to be a good film.

    Haider, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj and co-written by Bharadwaj and Basharat Peer, is a modern-day adaptation of William Shakespeare‘s Hamlet, set in Kashmir. The film stars Shahid Kapoor as Haider, Tabu as his mother and Shraddha Kapoor as Arshia, a journalist by profession and Haider’s love-interest.

    Samsung pins its hopes on Galaxy Alpha's metal frame

    Samsung has launched its new Galaxy Alpha with a metal frame, in a bid to boost sales after the plastic design of its smartphones has been blamed for the company’s recent struggles.

    The Wednesday launch of the latest Galaxy smartphone comes after a difficult second quarter for Samsung. While overall smartphones sales grew by almost 27 percent, Samsung’s shipments dropped. In May, the company also appointed a new head of its design team.

    Samsung has pitched the Galaxy Alpha with its metal frame as a new start, and the design as something “entirely new” compared to the design of its existing products, which have been justifiably criticized for looking cheap irrespective of what they cost.

    However, in reality the shape of the home button still makes it look very much like a Samsung smartphone, and the plastic back has inherited the dimpled design of the Galaxy S5. For some, the changes Samsung has made aren’t nearly big enough.

    “Overall it’s a good phone but I was disappointed with the design, even with the metal frame it feels too plastic,” said Francisco Jeronimo, research director for European mobile devices at IDC.

    Samsung has also decided to make the Galaxy Alpha thin and light: it weighs just 115 grams and is 6.7 millimeters thick.

    Under the hood, the smartphone is based on Android 4.4.4 and powered by an Exynos processor with four ARM Cortex-A15 cores running at 1.8GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores running at 1.3GHz. The screen measures 4.7 inches and has a 1280 by 720 pixel resolution.

    The smartphone also has a 12-megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1-megapixel front camera. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of integrated storage, but no microSD card slot. The LTE connection supports download speeds up to 300Mbps, as long as there is a network that can handle it as well.

Infibeam, a popular online retailer has already started selling this device in India. Even the price of this device is similar to the original Galaxy S II. Check out the specs below.

    Samsung Galaxy S II Plus features a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, sporting a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) OS, TouchWiz 4.0 UI, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, full HD (1080p) video recording and playback, 2 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 3G Connectivity and more.

    Google/Samsung Working On A Exynos 5250 Powered Nexus Tablet Or Handset?

    When Samsung announced the Galaxy S3 earlier this month, quite a few die-hard techies were disappointed with the SoC of the handset. The Exynos 4 Quad SoC inside the SGS3 is a beast in every sense, but it packs in 4 “older” generation Cortex-A9 cores instead of the latest Cortex-A15 architecture. The Qualcomm S4 (Krait) SoC is a custom Cortex-A15 competitor from Qualcomm, and even though it has two less physical cores, it manages to beat the quad-core Exynos and Tegra 3 in quite a few benchmarks pretty easily. The Exynos 5250 is Samsung’s Cortex-A15 dual-core based SoC, which is scheduled to arrive later this year.

    According to some of the latest commits from Google’s Android git, it looks like Google and Samsung are preparing a new device that will be using an Exynos 5250 SoC. The other specs of this mysterious device also look impressive with a Wolfson WM8994 audio chip, a 720p display, ‘vithar’ GPU clocked at 533MHz, and a ‘S5K4E5/S5K6A3′ camera.
    The Exynos 5250 just went into testing, and the early yields of the SoC are only able to scale up to 1GHz. Thus, the chances of the rumored Google Nexus tablet sporting the Exynos 5250 SoC do look bleak since its less than 2 months away from its unveiling. Samsung states that the Exynos 5250 SoC will be clocked at around 1.8-2GHz, so the yield of the SoC needs to improve before it goes into production. The SoC is scheduled to go into production sometime in Q3 of this year. It might be possible that the Galaxy Note 2 or even the next Nexus handset from Google will be sporting the above specs.

    Apple Argues That U.S. Court Block Samsung Galaxy Devices Over Patent Violations

    A U.S. appeals court on Friday showed few signs that it was prepared to support a request by Apple Inc to block immediately the sale of some Samsung Electronics smartphones and tablets.

    In a high-stakes patent dispute, the court heard arguments about whether a federal trial judge acted correctly in December when she ruled that Apple failed to provide enough evidence to support an injunction of Samsung's Galaxy pro duct line.

    The court's judges reacted with skepticism to a premise put forward by Apple's lawyer that for the purpose of getting an injunction, Apple does not need to show that patent infringement would directly cause a loss of customers.

    Apple's lawyer, Michael Jacobs, said it is enough to show that Samsung likely infringed on Apple's patents used in products such as the iPhone, and that Apple is likely to be hurt. The trial judge found both those things but not enough evidence of a causal link.

    Judge William Bryson on Friday asked about a hypothetical case in which an automaker copied the design of a cupholder from a second automaker. Under Apple's argument, if the second automaker later lost market share, it could ask for an injunction against sales by the first automaker, Bryson said.

    "Can that possibly be right?" he asked. Bryson is one of three judges who heard the case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

    Apple and Samsung are scheduled to go to trial in July in federal court in California. An order to stop Galaxy sales would have the potential to affect settlement considerations.

    Samsung Releases Ice Cream Sandwich Sources For The Galaxy S2

    Last week, Samsung started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S2 in some regions of the world. Sammy’s version of Ice Cream Sandwich for the S2 barely brought any of the UI changes introduced by Google in Android 4.0, and things mostly looked similar to how Android 2.3 Gingerbread looked on the handset.

    Thankfully, the CM team has already released the CM9 for the SGS2 since quite a few weeks ago. However, the ROM is in alpha and contains some bugs, including poor battery life and no video recording. This is because of the lack of Ice Cream Sandwich sources from Samsung. Nevertheless, just a few days after releasing the official ICS update, Samsung has also released the sources of the update.

    What does this mean, you ask? This will help the developers in fixing, hopefully, all the bugs current present in AOSP Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs for the S2. It will also allow them to compile custom kernels with overclocking support, better performance and tweaked for battery life.READ THIS

    Samsung intros connected TV’s, Refrigerators, Washing Machines and Tablets

    Samsung took covers off a plethora of new products at its launch event organized at this year’s CES. The same occasion had last year seen the birth of the Samsung Galaxy Tab which after the debut of the iPad 2 in March underwent a design change and was eventually launched amidst legal wrangles between Apple and Samsung.

    Anyway while the last years’ event was mostly tablets centric, that isn’t the case this year. In fact Samsung started off proceedings with the announcement of its new HDTV lineup with the ES 8000 series. These TV’s are smarter versions of Samsung’s existing lineup of Smart TV’s and features a much faster processor and other hardware inside. Available in screen sizes that range from 46 inches to 65 inches these also some with an integrated webcams and support for voice and gesture controls.

    These TV’s might also be the first ones on the planet to come with Angry Birds preloaded. This is of course apart from the numerous web apps that you can download for it.

    Samsung To Delay Galaxy Tab 10.1 Launch In Australia

    The much awaited launch of Samsung’s top of the line tablet and rival to the Apple iPad; the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been delayed until the last week of September. This move from Samsung comes at a time when an Australian court is hearing the case filed against Samsung by Apple.

    As you might be already aware, Apple and Samsung have been fighting it out on courts in various countries across the globe. Apple seems to currently have the upper hand with it managing to pass injunctions against the sale of the Galaxy Tab in a few European countries.

    The first of the lawsuits were filed back in April when Apple had blamed Samsung for “slavishly” copying various design and UI facets from a host of Apple products. There were also reports a few weeks ago of Apple reportedly faking comparative images that were used to “fool” regulators in to believing that Samsung products looked “more” similar to Apple products than they actually were.

    While the Australian curt hasn’t passed any ruling yet, it seems Samsung wants to play safe here and doesn’t want to b in an embarrassing position wherein they launch a product and it is eventually banned by the courts.MORE DETIAL

    Samsung Galaxy S III Gearing up for April Launch

    We have been hearing about the possible impending launch of Samsung’s mighty successor to the (still) highly capablE Galaxy S II for the past few days now. There had been plenty of speculations about the possibility of Samsung coming up with the S III at the recently conclude Mobile World Congress at Barcelona – which as you now already, didn’t turn out to be true.

    There have been a few image leaks as well – which have been dismissed as photoshopped imaginations of some creative genius.

    The source for ZDNet are Korean marketing companies who have been contacted by Samsung to make preparations for an event that the electronics major plans to hold later this month. It is highly likely that Samsung would announce the Galaxy S III at this proposed event. Read More
