Introduce yourself / Hello

My name is Sandman, good to be here.


The SM-N930V has now surfaced on the internet as the smartphone's Geekbench results have just been revealed. In case you didn't know, the N930 is the model number of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 and the V at the end stands for Verizon, as always. The results reveal a few things, but the most significant and slightly disappointing fact which it unveils is the SoC of the upcoming device. It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be using the same Qualcomm SD 820 chipset as the Galaxy S7, and NOT the rumoured 821/823 chipset. The device also has just 4GB of RAM, instead of 6GB, which it is largely expected to have on release.

Now, there are two theories about the disappointing CPU and RAM seen here. The first theory suggests that this is just a test unit which is being used to test out the networks on Verizon and the final version will sport the SD 821/823 SoC and 6GB of RAM. The second theory states that there will be both 4GB versions with the Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB versions with the enhanced processing power. We will just have to wait to find out for sure when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is released on August 2.


PhoneArena just published a leaked image that was supposedly taken from an upcoming official Samsung teaser and sent to them by one of their anonymous sources. Provided that the leak is bang on, the image reveals two things to us. Firstly, it seems like Samsung will indeed be calling the next Note smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7. Apparently, this will be done in order to avoid any chances of the consumers thinking that it is behind the Galaxy S7 or the upcoming Apple iPhone 7, in terms of technology. Although it isn't written in text, one can see the "7" clearly in the image. The second revelation is quite self-explanatory as the leak contains the text, "WRITE ON THE EDGE OF SOMETHING GREAT." This of course, signifies the dual Edge display that we have been hearing about for a while now.

If this report is proper, then both popular theories about the Note 7 have turned out to be dead on, as per the trend with tech-rumors these days. The release date for the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be set in the first week of August, but the unveiling will probably happen by the end of July.


A new report straight out of South Korea has indicated that Samsung will start pushing the mass production process for the Galaxy Note 7 in the next month. The target number for Samsung in July as well as August is 2.5 million, as per the report. So in theory, Samsung should have at least 5 million Galaxy Note 7 units ready to reach their consumers after it is released in late August or early September. Do not get confused though, the Note 7 will be unveiled on the 2nd of August as expected, but it usually takes a while before they are ready to ship the products for sale.

Early release has been part of Samsung's strategy this year and it has paid off well for the South Korean OEM. They did the same with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which saw amazing success and are still among the most sold flagship phones right now. In fact, Samsung had started with this strategy last year, when it launched the Note 5 in August, prior to the expected date in September, as that was when the Note 4 was released in 2014. The iPhone 7 is all set to be released in September and this might just be one of the reasons as to why Samsung is going to try and capture the market earlier than others.

Samsung Innovation Labs are working on some exciting new projects beyond the curved-edge displays. A Samsung official revealed that the company has started using its flexible / bendable display technology to start creating create a foldable Smartphone, that can be folded like a wallet allows combining between the two form factors of any phone (large screen and compact body).

The new flexible screen tech has four phases: curved, bent, foldable and rollable. The first two are already a reality, the third one is coming soon while the last one holds promise of displays that are stored like roller blinds.
Another report from a Korean new website, says that Samsung will unveil a Flexible and Foldable Tablet by the End of this year (2015). Although this report contradicts Samsung's revelation in an analyst conference in 2013 about foldable devices to be available by 2016-17, industry watchers now foresee the said devices to hit the market by 2015.

New info leaked regarding the HTC One M9+ also known as "HTC Hima Ultra" indicates that the device will be announced in China. The info came from HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR who reports that it's going to be released not just in Asia, but also in Europe.

In addition to this piece of info, @LlabTooFeR posted no less than 16 wallpapers that should come pre-installed on the One M9 Plus. These are all QHD (2880 x 2560 pixel) wallpapers, you can Download them all from the link below.


On its latest flagship device, Galaxy S6, Samsung has ditched the microSD card slot for good. Depending on a faster internal storage for all Android and User files. The Korean giant will release 3 variants with different storage sizes (32GB - 64GB - 128GB). So...
How much storage available on a 32GB Galaxy S6 ?
Well, it's only about 23GB available for the user data after. The system-reserved storage is 6.5GB, with an extra 2GB reserved under the "Used space" heading. This means 9GB of storage is taken up the moment you open the box. You can disable apps, but not uninstall them.
The 64GB model will have around 54GB available for the user and finally, the 128GB will have 118GB available for the user. Your Choice!


So Far, Samsung has promised to release the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to all its latest flagship devices that were released in he past couple of years, like Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2... What about the good old Galaxy S3 ?
Galaxy S3 Update Canceled!
Well, we have some Bad News for the Galaxy S3 users. Samsung has decided to Cancel Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy S3, leaving the old flagship at Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. This decision was made because the device's support has ended as it was released in 2012 (3 years ago).
In other hand, a 1 GB DDR2 Ram and an outdated Exynos 4 CPU is not good enough (in performance prospective) to run Lollipop smoothly which will affect the user experience. We assume that other S3 variants (S3 Neo... etc) won't be getting the update too.
galaxy Note 2 official lollipop update confirmed release
However, Samsung has confirmed that Galaxy Note 2 will get the Lollipop update later this year, known that Note 2 was released just few months after the S3. This doesn't prevent the loyal Galaxy S3 users to enjoy custom Lollipop ROMs for their beloved device.


After pushing the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the Moto X (2014), Motorola is currently testing Google's latest Android 5.1 Lollipop for the same device. The company is known for its fast stable updates.
The Lollipop version 23.1.28 is being tested out with several improvements such as reducing the noise in low-light shots of the rear camera and front-facing camera too. The Moto X (2014) Lollipop 5.1 update is expected to roll-out Over-the-air (OTA) next Month (April).


Samsung Galaxy S4 (Value Edition) GT-I9515 official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update has just just started Rolling-out today. The Original Galaxy S4 I9500 got the same update a while back, now it's the Value Edition turn.
