      [glow=green]Trademark points to “Note Edge” name for curved display Note version [/glow]

      www.androidauthority.com

      note edge
      Samsung is rumored to be working on a Note version featuring a plastic-based display that wraps around the sides of the phone, creating, in effect, a display with three sides.

      A recent trademark application suggests that the three-sided display device could be called Galaxy Note Edge.

      To be clear, there is no indication in the trademark document, which was filed on August 5, that the device in question is the upcoming Note variant. However, Samsung isn’t known to be working on any other Note variant and the “Edge” moniker would be perfectly suited for such a device.

      Rumors about the three-sided screen version of the Galaxy Note 4 began surfacing in early summer. Just last week, Korean media reported that the plastic-based panel required for the design entered production in limited quantities.

      If and when it hits the market, the device will probably be a limited edition meant to test the waters, just like Samsung experimented on a small scale with the Galaxy Round, its first plastic-based screen device.

      The device (Note Edge?) will probably look a lot like the Youm concept that Samsung demoed in January 2013 at CES. Having a screen that stretches over to the sides will enable features like making notifications visible without opening the flip case, placing playback controls on the sides for easy access, or moving game controls away from the screen.

      [glow=green]Samsung's Virtual Reality Headset Shows Up In A Photo Ahead Of Alleged IFA Unveiling[/glow]

      www.androidpolice.com

      gear vr

      We've heard rumor after rumor of Samsung's virtual reality headset in recent weeks, and according to the Verge the manufacturer is (as previous rumors suggested) set to unveil the device (codenamed Project Moonlight) at its upcoming Unpacked event in Berlin and New York, where Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4. What's more, the Verge has what appears to be a photo of the headset, next to a Samsung phone and Bluetooth controller.

      The image seems to show a focus dial and ample lenses, as well as a front panel that would hold a phone, falling in line with previous rumors.

      Readers may remember that Oculus, which itself used Galaxy Note 3 panels in its newer headsets, is said to be involved with Project Moonlight. The extent of the company's involvement with the headset's development remains to be seen, but it shouldn't be long until we've got all the details.

      [glow=blue]Samsung Galaxy Alpha officially announced [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Samsung Galaxy Alpha
      The day that we had all been waiting for is finally here. Samsung today officially announced the Galaxy Alpha, its new metal touting smartphone that we have been consistently hearing about over the past few months. There have been countless rumors about its specifications and dozens of pictures leaked online but none looked better than the official press images that Samsung has released today.

      As expected the Samsung Galaxy Alpha has a 4.7-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED display, Samsung’s own Exynos octacore processor (Quad 1.8GHz + Quad 1.3GHz) with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage (no microSD support), LTE-A support, 1860mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, 12 megapixel rear camera, 2.1 megapixel front shooter and more. Camera modes include HDR, Panorama, Selective Focus, Dual Camera, Beauty Face, Virtual Tour and others.

      Software features like the Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, Quick Connect and Private Mode are also present, baked into Android 4.4.4. There’s support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0. Sensors include an gyro, geomagnetic, hall, light, proximity, gesture and HR. An accelerometer is present onboard as well.

      Despite its metal build the Galaxy Alpha is just 6.7mm thick and it weighs in at 115g. The Galaxy Alpha will be released in five colors: black, white, gold, silver and blue. Samsung says that the new device will be released sequentially in more than 150 countries starting September 2014.

      [glow=blue]Samsung Galaxy Alpha price revealed [/glow]

      The wait has finally ended today as Samsung has formally announced the Galaxy Alpha smartphone. This much awaited device is made out of metal which is a departure from tradition for Samsung, a company that usually relies upon plastic for almost all of its devices, be it high-end or entry level. Since one might expect metal to be an expensive material as opposed to plastic, those who would like to pick up a Galaxy Alpha would now be wondering just how much it costs.

      Samsung’s advice price for this smartphone is €599, that’s high-end territory. Rest assured though as carrier subsidies are bound to drive down the upfront cost. However those who want to pay for it outright will have to shell out quite a bit of money.

      [glow=red]New super-fast USB cables won't mind which way you plug them in[/glow]

      www.engadget.com

      USB Type-C standard

      The reversible USB Type-C standard has now been finalized, which should save the world untold man-hours in mis-plugging. Roughly the size of a current micro-USB Type-B connector, it uses matching rows of contacts on the top and bottom so that you can shove it in either way around. Type-C is a version of the 10Gbps USB 3.1 standard (twice as fast as USB 3.0), but slimmed down for compact and mobile devices. It'll also support the USB Power Delivery spec to carry up to 100 watts, easily enough to power a laptop. Unfortunately, the new connector isn't compatible with the current USB standard, except via converters. While there are no devices with USB 3.1 yet, it'll likely be standardized on most future laptops and mobile devices -- unlike its pricey rival, Thunderbolt.

      [glow=green]Scientists turn to hemp for cheap, fast-charging batteries[/glow]

      www.engadget.com

      hemp electrode production

      Forget lab-made materials like graphene -- natural, old-fashioned hemp may be the ticket to our energy future. Researchers have demonstrated that you can make very efficient carbon electrodes simply by heating hemp bast fibers in a two-stage process. The resulting substance holds as much energy as graphene, but is much cheaper to make. You're just using biological leftovers, after all. It's much more tolerant of temperature extremes, too, and can survive anything from freezing conditions to a scorching 200F. And before you ask -- this is hemp, not pot, so you're not going to get a contact high just by using a battery.

      It's easy to see the potential impact. Graphene is already being tested for both regular batteries and supercapacitors, which charge up almost instantly and don't degrade; it's feasible that future electric cars and mobile devices could have affordable, hemp-based energy packs that top up within seconds. The technology might also be useful as a graphene substitute in other areas, such as solar cells and touchscreens. It's not just a proof of concept, either -- a small Canadian firm is working on scaling hemp electrode production, and US production is increasingly realistic as legal hemp production expands. If all goes well, you may eventually carry a phone powered by the same plant used to make your handbag.

      [glow=blue]Smartphone charged by ambient sound could free us from power supplies[/glow]

      www.cultofandroid.com

      piezoelectric effect

      Researchers in the U.K. have developed a cellphone that is charged by ambient sound, eliminating the need for a charger. Filled with energy-harvesting “nanogenerators,” the device uses a principal called the piezoelectric effect to turn the sound vibrations in the atmosphere around it into energy.

      The piezoelectric effect, a concept discovered by Korean scientists four years ago, employs nanowires made from zinc oxide that produce an electrical current when they are subjected to some kind of mechanical stress. They’re so sensitive that the vibrations caused by sound waves are enough to make the magic happen.

      When you install this technology into a smartphone, its battery is topped up every time it’s exposed to sound. So whether you’re sat in a noisy coffee shop, on a packed train, or in a busy office, your smartphone will continue to charge itself — without a cable or a plug. It literally charges itself using your voice when you’re on a call.

      The prototype device was built by a team of scientists at the Queen Mary University of London, and it’s about the size of a Nokia Lumia 925, Phys.org reports. It can generate five volts of electricity using ambient sound, which is enough to keep your device topped up throughout the day and could possibly even eliminate the charger altogether.

      “This collaboration was an excellent opportunity to develop alternative device designs using cheap and scalable methods,” said Dr Joe Briscoe, who hopes that the experiment will bring this technology “closer to viability.” It’s still likely to be a while yet before you see smartphones utilizing the piezoelectric effect.

      [glow=red]Google Voice Search can now handle multiple languages with ease[/glow]

      www.engadget.com

      Voice Search update for Android

      It's not unusual for people who speak several languages to forget particular terms, and that can be pretty frustrating when you're trying to look up stuff through Google Voice Search. Thankfully, the latest Voice Search update for Android gives you the power to choose up to five languages as your default instead of just one, making random lapses in memory a bit less annoying. This change, spotted by Android Police (and which the Google Search team first revealed on Reddit in July), allows you to do voice queries in different tongues without having to dive into the settings page each time. The app now even understands a query even if it's spoken in more than one language -- the bad news is you're still stuck with English as the sole default if you use the OK, Google command. If that's not a dealbreaker, just sit tight and wait for the update to arrive on your phone, if it hasn't yet.

      [glow=red]Look ma, no bezel! Sharp's Sprint-bound Aquos Crystal gets featured in video ads[/glow]

      www.phonearena.com

      Aquos Crystal
      In case you have been waiting for the future where our devices are mostly screen, and no bezels, the future might be already here, as Sharp's EDGEST design language just took a turn for the extreme, with the newest Sprint-bound Aquos Crystal. Japan's SoftBank carrier, which will put the handset on preorder tomorrow, outed a series of videos extolling the virtues of its newest compact design with almost no side and top bezels, that allows the Sprint-bound Crystal model to fit a 5" panel in a size that is more akin to a 4.5" model.

      As a reminder, the phone is just 5 inches (131mm) in height and 2.6 inches (67mm) in width. For comparison, it is about as compact as the Moto G, while having a half-inch larger display diagonal. Sprint has an event tomorrow in New York, titled "Take the edge off." Given the fact that in the SoftBank press release the Aquos Crystal is said to land on Sprint, which is owned by the Japanese carrier, it's not hard to deduce that tomorrow we might see the first tangible fruit of the Sprint's buyout for us, consumers, and with a record-busting handset at that.

      Looking at the specs sheet, it will likely be priced as a midranger, yet perhaps the most ergonomic one ever seen. Take a peek at the video promos in the slideshow below, and rest assured we will cover all the festivities in New York tomorrow.

      Meizu MX4

      Meizu has announced on Tuesday, that it will hold an event on September 2nd at 2:30pm Beijing time. The festivities are being called the "Think High" event. According to the company, "that means exploring new possibilities, embracing technological innovations and striving to be anything but ordinary. We think you will be as excited as we are with what we have created."

      What Meizu will be showing off is most likely its Meizu MX4. Leaked photographs have revealed a device with extremely thin side bezels. Two versions of the MX4 are expected. A "Pro" model is believed to carry a 5.5 inch glass with an unusual 1536 x 2560 pixel resolution. Consider that the Meizu MX3 features resolution of 1080 x 1800, and you can see that such unusual resolution figures are not new to the manufacturer. The "Pro" could feature an Exynos 5433 under the hood, 3GB of RAM inside, and back and front-facing cameras of 20.7MP and 8MP respectively.

      The standard model is expected to feature a 5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, with an Exynos 5430 running the show. The same 3GB of RAM and camera specs are believed to be on this model, which could be priced at $406 USD. We should know much more, include availability, official pricing, and complete specs, following the event. For those in the states, Meizu's event will be taking place at 2:30am EDT, two weeks from today.

      [glow=orange] Exclusive: Samsung developing Ultrasonic Cover for the Galaxy Note 4 [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Ultrasonic Cover
      Whenever Samsung announces its new flagship devices, it announces a plethora of official accessories for the device as well. These accessories mainly consist of protective cases, designer covers, screen protectors, wireless charging back covers, and more. With the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung will be taking it to the next level. It has come to our attention that Samsung is developing an Ultrasonic Cover, which is targeted towards people with vision-related disabilities, for the Galaxy Note 4.

      According to our sources, the cover consists of an ultrasonic sensor which detects nearby objects in front of the person and provides feedback, appropriately. Users will also be able to change the range of ultrasonic signals and choose between three levels: short, middle and long. However, as the user increases the range of ultrasonic signals, the width of the area covered by the ultrasonic sensor will get narrower.

      We were able to obtain exact description of the accessory, thanks to our insider, from a Note 4 prototype.

      “The Product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. This Product is a non-medical device.

      It cannot replace a cane and should never be used as a mobility aid or substitute for any mobility aid tool. It must always be used in combination with a cane, a dog guide, or a human guide because, by itself, it does not provide information necessary for safe travel.

      We strongly recommend you to educate yourself fully and abide by the operating procedures of this manual before your first use. Furthermore, we encourage you to train yourself with how to use the Product and be sure to have fully understood how the Product works correctly. We are not responsible for or liable for any misuse of the Product or incorrect interpretation of the Product manual. While using the Product in training, it is strongly recommended that you work with a sighted friend who can give you visual feedback, particularly when you work with more advanced skills.

      The Product does not detect drop-offs. When doing exercises that require hand scanning, make sure that you use an area without steps or drop-offs, and without car or pedestrian traffic.

      The Product does not provide the scope and detail of information obtained through vision and the coverage area/range may vary due to circumstances.

      Users should always remove headphones from their ears when approaching and crossing intersections or when walking through areas that include business driveways, parking lots, or alleyswhere traffic might cross the path of travel.

      For further warnings and disclaimers, please refer to the Product manual.”

      We think that this is one of the most useful accessory Samsung has ever created, as this Ultrasonic Cover can really help disabled people and drastically improve their lives. The cover should get unveiled at Samsung’s UNPACKED 2014 Episode 2 event in Berlin on September 3, alongside the Galaxy Note 4, as long as the development goes on smoothly.

      [glow=green]Wireless charging from 15 feet: can WattUp deliver on the promise?[/glow]

      www.androidauthority.com

      WattUp
      Wireless charging for mobile devices has been around for a little while now, but you’re still dependent on cables in some form, be that through a USB connected charging mat or Qi inductive docking station. Wouldn’t it be so much better if you could just walk in through the door and have your smartphone begin charging?

      This is exactly what Energous’ WattUp technology aims to let you do, by offering wireless charging up to 15 feet in any direction from the hub. WattUp transmits power from a wireless hub, which can send energy over a distance of 30 feet in diameter, or from a smaller transmitter to plug into your nightstand that can be used to charge wearables and phones whilst you sleep. Combined with a case that collects the signal and converts it into a usable charge, WattUp allows for truly wireless charging.

      As well as wireless charging cases and ideas like chargeable battery backpacks, Energous wants manufacturers to build its technology directly into devices, much like Qi chargeable handsets currently on the market. To do this, Energous aims to license its technology out to a wide range of manufacturers. The company currently has 7 partners in total, 5 of which have been publicly announced.

      “Our collaboration with Dialog Semiconductor will provide consumer electronics manufacturers with a superior technology that will differentiate their products with the freedom of charging without wires,” – Stephen R. Rizzone, CEO of Energous Corporation

      The latest partner to team up with Energous is integrated circuit manufacturer Dialog Semiconductor, which produces some of the lowest cost Bluetooth chipsets on the market, a key technology used in WattUp. Together with Dialog, Energous plans to bring reference designs and prototypes of its technology to other partners and consumers over the coming year.
      How it works

      Looking at the technology at a high level, it essentially transmits energy over the air, which is then converted back into a DC charge by the receiver. WattUp operates over the unlicensed WiFi ISM band between 5.7 and 5.8 GHz, and uses the same open-frequency transmitters as typical WiFi hubs, to comply with the FCC’s regulation on interference with other devices.

      Of course that’s not all it does. WattUp also uses a Bluetooth connection between the transmitter and receiver to scan for nearby gadgets and to direct the ratio waves towards the receiver with more accuracy. Combined with a management app, you can also control when to charge your devices.

      [BBvideo 560,340]https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=UU8wGbhgFz1_O4Ia1M1j9MPg&v=buIX-7F3Hbo&feature=player_embedded[/BBvideo]

      The transmitter contains around a hundred small antennae which send out radio waves with relatively small amounts of power, which are then accumulated by a smaller number of antennae in the receiver. The receiver converts the radio frequency power into a DC signal to charge the handset, tablet, or smartwatch.

      As with all wireless signals, the power decreases over distance. The end result is roughly 4 watts of power when the receiving device is located within 5 feet of the transmitter, which is not far off what you will get by plugging your phone into the wall. The power available decreases to 2 watts at a range of 5 to 10 ft, and falls off to a single watt of power at 10 -15 feet. But this should still be enough to slowly charge up your smartphone or tablet whilst using it.

      Although home spaces will be able to get by with a single hub, the technology also lends itself nicely to public spaces. Energous envisions businesses and coffee shops making using of a “mesh” type network, which uses several transmitter hubs to cover a larger area.



      The trade-off with wireless over cables is that power transmission is less efficient, and WattUp won’t be as quick at charging your gadgets as plugging in directly to the mains. However, being able to charge your device wirelessly means that users will be able to keep using their devices whilst charging, putting an end to the “wall-hugger” problem.

      Similarly, wireless charging methods are going to cost a lot more than the few dollars that you’ll pay for a USB cable, although Energous doesn’t have a price for its products yet. Still, the convenience might be worth the setup cost, especially if it means less time spent worrying about how much juice your phone has left.



      Say goodbye to charging docks, WattUp will let you charge your phone from within your pocket.
      “Great, but is it safe?”

      Whenever we talk about wireless power, you can bet that there’ll be a comment questioning the safety of sending power over the air. To address these concerns, Energous gave us a few details about the regulations that they have to adhere to, and the level of testing that’s going into WattUp.

      For starters, part 18 of the FCC’s wireless regulations deals with the emissions, power, and safety of wireless transmissions. The regular wireless communications from your mobile device sends and receives rather absorptive signals with about 2 watts of power. WattUp is a more reflective WiFi based technology, which utilises hundreds of antennas in the transmitters and 10 or so in the receiver, each transmitting just microwatts of power each. In other words, WattUp’s signals are highly distributed, making it no more of a risk than your smartphone’s more concentrated signal.

      Furthermore, WattUp will also be undergoing an absorption rate test, to see how much energy is absorbed by tissue and what impact that has on the user. As WiFi signals are generally quite reflective, you’ll probably have noticed how signal strength drops off through walls, most of the energy would be reflected off human tissue. Again, the absorption rating should be a fraction of any normal cell phone.

      [glow=orange]Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Camera Features – 16MP, Side Touch, Wide Selfie, and much more.[/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Note 4 Camera Features
      Today, we received a plethora of exclusive information regarding Samsung’s upcoming flagship phablet device, the Galaxy Note 4, thanks to our elite friends. We will be revealing details about #TheNextBigThing almost daily, until the actual launch of the device, so keep an eye on our news feed. Today, we are targeting the Galaxy Note 4′s camera specifications and features.

      According to our sources, Samsung is equipping the Galaxy Note 4 with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera sensor on the back with optical image stabilization (OIS), which is capable of shooting UHD (3840×2160) video at 30FPS. This isn’t the first time Samsung is using the IMX240 camera sensor - Samsung has used the exact same sensor in the Korean Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A (SM-G906S/L/K), however it lacked optical image stabilization (OIS). Since the last few years, Samsung has been using a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera on its devices, but this time it’s using a 3.7-megapixel camera sensor, which will be able to capture images and videos in WQHD (2560×1440) resolution. However, exact information on the sensor technology is still unknown.

      In the beginning of the year, we exclusively reported about the Galaxy S5 sporting a feature called Side Touch. Unfortunately, at the last moment Samsung decided not to include the technology in the Galaxy S5. However, the code is still present in the Galaxy S5’s firmware, and our sources claim Samsung is testing the same technology on the Galaxy Note 4 as well. If you don’t know what Side Touch is, it’s a sensor built into the bottom right side of the device, at the same place where a physical dedicated camera button is usually placed, which can be used to take a picture simply by tapping. There are a few limitations of Side Touch – for example, you won’t be able to use it in Portrait Mode, Easy Mode, and while recording video (nor will it let you focus with a half-press as you would do on a physical camera button.)

      Moving along, let’s talk about the software side of things. Our sources report that Samsung has created a gesture-based shortcut that will allow the user to gain quick access to the camera, while the screen is off, by tapping the screen with two fingers and swiping them apart. Samsung will be introducing four new camera modes, three of which are solely for taking selfies, which include: Wide Selfie, Selfie, Selfie Alarm and Create A GIF File. Don’t worry, all previous camera modes and effects will be available on the device, as Samsung will be bringing in all the Galaxy S5’s camera features to the Galaxy Note 4, which include HDR Live, Selective Focus, Fast Auto-focus, and more.

      We have compiled a list of all camera modes, effects, picture and video resolutions supported by the Galaxy Note 4. Check them out below.
