Image inside iPhone 6s Photos Leaked Online

6 people viewing this

| By mrfreak76 - 1 day ago


For fall 2015, Apple is preparing an “S” iPhone upgrade that superficially preserves the exterior designs of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but includes a collection of major internal changes. In May, we reported that this new “iPhone 6S” line would debut this fall with a Force Touch, pressure-sensitive display as one of its marquee features. Now, a proven source familiar with Apple’s supply chain has provided us with the most extensive look yet at Apple’s next iPhone, sharing the first photos of the iPhone 6S’s external metal casing, plus an in-depth look at the new iPhone’s internals. Today, we’re focusing on the exterior of the next iPhone, which appears to refute a number of potential changes that some have speculated were destined for this model.

1) Identical design to the current iPhone 6 + same thickness/width:

As expected, these photos show that the next-generation iPhone will have a rear design identical to that of the current iPhone, similar to the transition from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 5S. Our images show no noticeable external changes coming from the iPhone 6 — even the Space Gray color has remained light, contrasting with the darker Space Gray Apple Watch — but it is possible that Apple’s final hardware could include additional tweaks.

Good luck spotting any major external differences in size or the position of holes. Our source says that any potential difference in thickness or width on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6-sized device is too minimal to notice, but this does not (yet) rule out rumored changes to the larger, 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus body.

2) Different internal mounting structure:

Despite the identical exterior, many small changes are evident inside the iPhone 6S frame, particularly in the mounting points for the phoneÂ’s new logic board and components. The mounting points line up with details weÂ’ve received regarding the logic board, confirming the shellÂ’s authenticity for a new device.

3) No dual-lens camera system:

Rumors that the iPhone 6S would receive a dual-lens camera system appear to be dashed given the rear shellÂ’s seemingly identical holes for camera, microphone, and LED flash. This doesnÂ’t rule out the possibility that the camera lens wonÂ’t protrude on the new model, but two distinct lenses appear to be very unlikely.

4) Antenna lines still present:

Apple recently applied for a patent on a technique to hide the antenna lines on the back of an iPhone with an “anodized metal appearance.” Unless something changes from the casing here, those lines will persist through the iPhone 6S lineup. But there may be some good news regarding NFC antenna performance, a point we’ll discuss further soon.

5) Same connectors, speakers, microphones:

The bottom design of the iPhone 6S is exactly the same as with the prior model, down to the number of speaker holes and the position of the headphone, microphone, and Lightning holes. This will be good news for case and accessory makers, who wonÂ’t have to worry about redesigning their iPhone 6 products for the iPhone 6S.

In the coming days, weÂ’ll be publishing in-depth looks at new internal components and chips coming in the next iPhone, which will reveal new features and enhancements. So, stay tuned for those articles. Meanwhile, below is our full image gallery of the next iPhoneÂ’s external shell.

Full image gallery of the next iPhoneÂ’s exterior:

I figured it would look the same, I'm just excited to see what the new features are besides force-touch and split-screen

Thanks For The Loyalty Google: Hangouts 4.0 Out For iOS, Android Update Nowhere In Sight

2 people viewing this

| By Jago - 2 days ago

Quote:


Google updated Hangouts, its instant messaging platform, to a major new version—but you won't find it on Android just yet. Hangouts 4.0 launched on iOS today, bringing a lot of design tweaks, the ever present "bug fixes and performance improvements," and easier access to photos and stickers.


The biggest improvement is in sending attachments. Options that were previously hidden behind a paperclip button are now front-and-center in the message interface. Photos, camera, stickers, and location sit in a strip below the text-input field, encouraging users to send their friends more than just text. The strip of icons is actually a tabbed interface: the keyboard gets replaced by a similarly-sized window that lets you pick from the appropriate media type. The camera button even opens up a mini-viewfinder.


The improved interface brings a standard navigation drawer to iOS—previously it was an odd drop-down interface. Text from your contact is now a deep green with white text, which certainly gives the app a distinctive look. There a new item from the Material Design guidelines too: Floating Action Buttons, or FABs. These large, round buttons at the bottom of the screen are designed to draw the user's attention.


As for Android users, Google says an update will be coming "soon."

Strong Sales Of The Galaxy S6 Allow Samsung To Retake Lead In The U.S.

3 people viewing this

| By Jago - 2 days ago

Quote:


The latest figures from Kantar show Android increasing its market share to 64.9 percent in the U.S., an increase of 2.8 percentage points. Samsung was able to retake the number one manufacturer spot through strong sales of the Galaxy S6.

From Kantar Worldpanel:

Quote:

The first full month of sales of the Galaxy S6 allowed Samsung to regain the market lead in the US and grow its share of Android sales from 52% in the three months ending in April to 55% for the three months ending in May.
The Galaxy S6 came in third in terms of overall sales, behind the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S5. LG also contributed to the surge in Android's market share, with the South Korean vendor nearly doubling its market share in the U.S. from a year ago. However, HTC and Motorola saw their shares fall compared to the same period last year.

The iPhone 6 also witnessed strong sales in Great Britain, Germany, Italy and France. In China, Huawei sold the most number of Android handsets, occupying second place in the smartphone segment behind Apple, with Xiaomi coming in at third.

Galaxy S6 sales reportedly fall short of expectations, all eyes on the Galaxy Note 5

4 people viewing this

| By KingP1n - 2 days ago

Quote:

Earlier this year Samsung launched its new flagship handsets the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The market expected that customers would react favorably to the new devices and many of them did but things are expected to change in this quarter as industry watchers believe sales of the Galaxy S6 will actually fall short of expectations in the second quarter. The apprehension continues to mount as we head into the fall where traditionally Apple launches new iPhones and thatÂ’s also perceived as a threat to sales of the Galaxy S6.

Securities industry sources cited in a new report suggest that Samsung ElectronicsÂ’ IT and mobile division is going to post an operating profit this quarter between $2.76 billion and $3.03 billion which would be a 22% increase quarter-over-quarter but a 24% slump year-over-year. This performance is attributed to low actual sales of the Galaxy S6 and with hopes for the next quarter being pinned on the Galaxy Note 5.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S6 edge Plus in the near future, itÂ’s a new model which has a slightly larger display, larger battery as well as a Snapdragon 808 processor. The Galaxy Note 5 will arrive before the new iPhones and itÂ’s bound to give those handsets a run for their money, Samsung will also be counting on this device to improve its fortunes in the global smartphone market.

AndroidCentral: The Nexus 6 is the best Android flagship you can buy today

3 people viewing this

| By mtva24 - 4 days ago

The best Android phone is more than just the sum of its parts.

We're at the time of the year when most of the big players in Android hardware have shown us what they have to offer (waiting on you, Motorola) and many of us have had a chance to try them all.

There is some really good, and interesting, stuff out there in 2015. We've moved past the gimmicks like 3D and dual-camera lenses, and the folks who make Android phones have worked hard to deliver something for everyone.

But after all the dust settles, the Nexus 6 is the best Android "flagship" you can buy, even though it's not the newest.



Granted, the Nexus 6 doesn't have the best screen. I'm pretty impressed by what I've seen on the Galaxy S6 and the LG G4. But I've never looked at the screen on my Nexus 6 and said, "this is horrible." That's because it isn't. It's big, bright, and 493 pixels per inch are enough to make anything look great on the 6-inch display.

The Nexus 6 also doesn't have the best camera of any phone available. The LG G4 is the first Android phone with a camera that's more than good enough, and if your main reason for wanting an Android smartphone is the camera, you should probably think about buying one.

There are also plenty of folks, like me, who just don't love carrying around a 6-inch phone. I can use it just fine (save the cracks about my lack of manly hands), but I don't like the size of it in my pocket and it doesn't fit in the cup holder of my car very well. I've come to terms with it, because just about every other Android phone is bigger than I like, so I have to suck it up. I'm looking forward to the next Z-series compact from Sony, though.

There are plenty of things about the Nexus 6 that are done better by the competition, so why in the heck do I say the Nexus 6 is the best phone you can buy?

The software.



I'll be up front — I'm a software guy. Take a room full of smart engineers and they can design a phone that ticks all the boxes and is the best thing ever — on paper. When you pick it up and use it, you soon find that the software is like the soul of a phone, and makes all the difference.

I don't mean TouchWiz versus HTC Sense versus "Stock" Android versus whatever LG calls its stuff now. It's perfectly fine to like a thing that looks different from another thing. I mean the way the software works, how well it works, and how good the next version is going to work.

The Nexus 6, like every other Nexus phone before it, had a rough few months in the beginning. I joke and say Nexus users are Google's beta testers, but it really does feel that way when a new Nexus phone comes out and we're trying a new version of the operating system. But, also like every Nexus phone before it, Google pushes out updates that address the complaints we all find. Right now, Android 5.1.1 on the Nexus 6 is the best version of Android ever. Even more telling, Android 5.1.1 on the Nexus 5 runs better than every other 2015 phone, too.

This is because one company is in control of both the hardware and the software. The Galaxy S6 is a technological wonder. You can't help but be impressed with the design and the hardware used to make it all happen. But on the software side, they have to use a product designed by another company with another phone used as the initial software target. They wait on Google to make changes, alter things to try and optimize the software for their gear, then build a different user interface on top of it all. They find ways to make it better and send the changes back to Google, and the next version of Android will probably run better on their phones.

In the meantime, you have issues stemming from using an older version of Android, as well as issues Samsung introduced itself. The same goes for LG, and HTC, and everyone else building Android phones. Software is hard. Getting it right takes time and dedication. Getting it right while also trying to change the entire interface means it's never going to be as smooth as the original. An interesting aside — when HTC monkeys with the RAM management on their phones, we call for their head. When Samsung does it, we blame Lollipop. This says more about us than the phones themselves, though.

The Nexus 6 isn't perfect. Nothing ever is, really. But if you want to spend a bunch of money on an Android phone, it's the best way you can spend it.

Samsung Has Developed Tech That Allows A 4000 mAh Battery To Fit Inside A Galaxy S6

4 people viewing this

| By Jago - 6 days ago

Quote:


We are on the cusp of battery technology breakthroughs that would allow our spec'd-out smartphones to last for days. These technologies are not years away, mind you, and none other than Samsung announced that its R&D department has achieved a breakthrough into the all-important cathode material composition, which has been the pinnacle of recent efforts for increasing capacity while preserving battery size.

Samsung has used something similar to the silicon cathode material we've told you about before, throwing graphene into the mix, and this has allowed 1.5-1.8 times the battery capacity in the same juicer size. This means that the battery that is currently in the Galaxy S6, for instance, will be able to hold 4000+ mAh capacity, which in turn would turn it into a two- or three-day battery phone with typical usage.


Moreover, the charge/discharge cycle numbers have also been preserved, which has been the bottleneck for the technology before. We knew that Samsung is working on "denser" batteries, and are glad to see things moving along nicely. Hopefully, this one will land in time for the Galaxy S7.

Looks like the Snapdragon 820 is coming out this year

GSMArena
Quote:

The Snapdragon 820, however, is still on its way and a new report shows that it might be closer to consumer markets than ever. According to industry sources, an initial batch of chips has already been sent to a customer for testing. If everything pans out, we might start seeing the chipset in various devices shortly after.

Actually, both the LG G4 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 5 are rumored to adopt the Snapdragon 820 and more are sure to come. This is a welcome sign that manufacturer support is still there for Qualcomm, but also means that a lot is riding on the new chip.


With the 820 model, the company goes back to its old ways and the chipset features new custom 64-bit CPU cores, dubbed Kryo. This custom take on the ARMv8 core is also accompanied by new manufacturing technologies, namely Samsung's state of the art 14 nm FinFET and TSMCÂ’s new 16 nm one. This should allow the cores to reach clocks of up to 3.0 GHz, although production units will be set to a less-aggressive and quite cooler speed.

The next OnePlus phone is coming on July 27th!!!!!!

4 people viewing this

| By yunsta - 6 days ago

The $299 OnePlus One proved that you can get a flagship-quality smartphone without paying traditional flagship prices. And now its successor is almost here. OnePlus will officially unveil its next phone, the OnePlus 2, on July 27th at 7PM PT (10PM ET). The company has already shared a few key specifications for the device; it'll be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset and will feature a USB-C port — making it one of the first major smartphones to adopt the brand new, more convenient USB standard. But that's pretty much all we know at this early stage, leaving plenty for OnePlus to tease over the next few weeks before the whole story is revealed next month.


And the company has a unique plan for the unveiling: you'll be able to experience it in virtual reality. "In our industry, product launches tend to be the same. An auditorium, a keynote, and a seated audience. For the OnePlus 2 launch, we didnÂ’t want that barrier between us and you," OnePlus wrote in a blog post today. "A VR launch lets you stand right next to our team and our fans as we unveil our new flagship. YouÂ’ll be able to look around as you check out the phone in a new way and maybe even find a few hidden Easter eggs." The company will be releasing its own Google Cardboard headset tailored for the One soon, an endeavor that it's "definitely losing money on" per the blog post.

Once the OnePlus 2 is unveiled, you'll need an invite to get one — just like the first model. It took an entire year for the company to catch up with demand and ditch OnePlus One invites, and you can expect version two to be equally hard to come by. But there's very good reason for that; putting aside the software controversies and some downright bad decisions this young company has made, it's still producing a pretty fantastic smartphone at a price that's hard to grasp. We're excited to see what's next.

Article inside 5G network defined by ITU as 20 GBs per second, demo by 2018 Olympics

2 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 7 days ago


The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has agreed on the definition of fifth-generation (5G) networks, a key technological requirement and its schedule to commercialize the technology by 2020.

The Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning said Thursday it sent a 12-member delegation to an ITU meeting in San Diego, and succeeded in reflecting the nation’s suggestions on the international agreement.

“The vision for the 5G network and its global standardization schedule has been agreed based on our suggestion. This has shown that Korea is leading the world’s mobile communication technology and related policies,” a ministry official said. “We will beef up international cooperation to have the agreement approved without any problems.

The ministry said the union has decided to define 5G as a network which is capable of transmitting data at up to 20 gigabits-per-second. This means that users can download one ultra high-definition movie in 10 seconds.

The 5G network will also have a capacity to provide more than 100 megabits-per-second average data transmission to over one million Internet of Things devices within 1 square kilometer. Video content services, including ones that use holography technology, will also be available thanks to the expanded data transmit capacity, the ministry said.

The ITU has determined the name of the 5G network as IMT-2020, following the IMT-2000 for the third-generation network and the IMT-Advanced for the fourth-generation one.

The official name will be finally approved at the ITU’s Radio Assembly in Geneva in October, the ministry said.

The union also decided to target commercializing the 5G network worldwide by 2020. To do so, it will start receiving applications for technology which can be candidates to become the standard for the new network. Consequently, the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games will be the world’s first international event to showcase and demonstrate 5G technology.

Among the local telecom companies developing the 5G network, KT said it will demonstrate its technology at the international sports event as the official sponsor.

“We will speed up the 5G network technology development to reflect our own global standard. To do so, we will showcase a successful example at the upcoming 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games,” the ministry official said.

The union plans to start distributing the international spectrum for the 5G network in 2019.

The ministry said it will work to take a leading role in the spectrum distribution at the upcoming global telecommunication meetings scheduled for July and November.

Article inside Samsung doesn't want Windows Update running on your computer

3 people viewing this

| By Illy Wanka - 1 week ago



As if you needed another reason to do a clean install of WIndows with any new computer, Samsung's got you covered. It turns out that a piece of the bloatware from the OEM is apparently disabling Windows Update because it interferes with Samsung's own software updater. The one that, as you might infer, keeps its bloatware up to date on Windows desktops and laptops. A Microsoft MVP (community member, not Redmond employee) chatted with a Samsung customer service rep, asking why this was happening and the rep replied that Windows Update will install drivers for all the hardware on a machine that may or may not work. So, it prevents such a thing by keeping Windows Update turned off. Fine if you aren't worried about security updates but love keeping things like Samsung's auto-back-up tools up to date. It's almost like Samsung wasn't paying attention to Lenovo and Superfish earlier this year.

HTC Has Only Shipped 4.75 Million Units Of The One M9 Since Launch

2 people viewing this

| By Jago - 1 week ago

Quote:


HTC has so far shipped only 4.75 million units of its new flagship smartphone, the HTC One M9, since the model launched in the latter half of March, down 43.75% as compared to shipments of the HTC One M8 during its initial three months, according to a Chinese-language China Business Journal report.

HTC's market value has also declined to around US$2 billion recently compared to its all-time high of US$33.8 billion a few years ago, the paper added.

The mid-range to high-end smartphone market (models priced at CNY1,600 (US$258) and up) in China has become mature, but HTC's flagship models are still set at CNY4,000, pushing consumers to pick up iPhone devices, the journal quoted China-based iiMedia Research as saying.

It will be difficult for HTC to make a new breakthrough in the China market as local smartphone vendors have waged a new round of price wars, particularly for mid-range and entry-level models.

For example, Xiaomi Technology has lowered the price of its Hongmi (Red Rice) 2A to CNY499 from CNY599 and Coolpad (in cooperation with Qihoo 360) is offering its Great God F1 plus at CNY399. However, HTC's mid-range HTC Desire series products are available at CNY1,000-2,000.
