      [glow=violet]Samsung’s teaser video hints about the handwriting capabilities of the Galaxy Note 4[/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Note 4 1st teaser


      Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 4 during its IFA 2014 event which is almost 2 weeks from now but Samsung has already started sharing teaser videos hinting towards the Galaxy Note 4. In the latest video, Samsung has tried to remind all of us the importance of handwriting and how exceedingly rare people are writing on paper these days, thanks to a move towards a digital era. Samsung’s S Pen stylus though, still provides users a way to write everyday on their Galaxy Note series of smartphones and tablets.

      With the Galaxy Note 3, Samsung had introduced some interesting new features such as automatic conversion of handwritten notes, contact numbers or addresses into digital memos. If the teaser video is anything to go by, we believe that Galaxy Note 4 will bring even more emphasis to handwriting and scribbling features. Are you excited about the Galaxy Note 4?

      [glow=brown]Exclusive: Galaxy Note 4 to sport Synaptics’ Natural ID tech, New fingerprint features [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      [spoiler=Synaptics Natural ID solution,]
      Since the beginning of the month, we have been exclusively revealing details about Samsung’s upcoming flagship phablet device, the Galaxy Note 4, bit by bit. Last week, we spilled the beans on the device’s camera features, and the development of its Ultrasonic Cover. Today, we will unfold details about the Galaxy Note 4’s fingerprint sensor.

      Our credible source reports, the Galaxy Note 4 will sport Synaptics’ Natural ID solution, just like the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha. Many aren’t aware of the technologies which come bundled with Synaptics’ Natural ID solution, one of those technologies is LiveFlex™. This technology allows the separation of the fingerprint sensing element from the fingerprint controller integrated circuit. Samsung uses this technology to split the fingerprint sensor into two parts, one part is incorporated into the home button, while the other part takes input from the main touch screen, and both are used simultaneously to get an ID loaded. The sensor is compliant with FIDO, as well.

      After the release of the Galaxy S5, many people reported about the fingerprint scanner being crap and useless due to it being unable to correctly identify fingerprints, and most of the time throwing errors instead of unlocking their latest smartphone. The reason behind this is that when registering their fingerprints, users only swipe their finger over the home button, which is tiny and doesn’t provide sufficient area. The right way is to swipe their finger starting from the lower part of the display to the home button, not just the home button. This allows for a much greater surface area for the finger to swipe on and the result is flawless. This is actually Samsung’s fault and not the users’, because these instructions aren’t present in the current version of the fingerprint registration tutorial. If you didn’t knew about this, try it now!

      Now let’s talk about the software side of things. Samsung is bringing all four fingerprint features — Screen Lock, Private Mode with fingerprint authentication, Samsung Account Verification and PayPal Payments — from the Galaxy S5 to the Galaxy Note 4. Moreover, Samsung has created a few new features, which may arrive on the Galaxy S5 in future software updates. One of those few features is, Fingerprint Shortcuts. This new feature allows the user to assign applications or specific functions as shortcuts to each registered fingerprint.

      How this feature works?

      “When you unlock the device with the registered fingers, you can make the finger shortcut to any applications or other functions directly from the lock screen” – This is exactly what Samsung states during the feature’s tutorial on the Note 4.

      Web Sign-in is another fingerprint-related feature Samsung has developed for the Galaxy Note 4. Web Sign-in allows the user to use registered fingerprint to sign into websites. After signing into a website manually by inputting username and password from the keyboard, the user can then simply enable “Sign in using fingerprints” and use the register fingerprint to login.

      This is how the Korean giant describes this feature on the Galaxy Note 4.

      “Sign in to websites that can remember passwords by swiping any of your registered fingers over the home key. To set up fingerprint recognition for your web accounts, follow the instructions below:

      1. Enter your username and password for web accounts that support fingerprint recognition.

      2. Enable Sign in using fingerprints.

      3. Sign out of the web account, then use a registered fingerprint to sign in again.”

      This is all the info we were able to obtain regarding the Galaxy Note 4’s fingerprint scanner from our sources, but we will keep you folks updated as soon as we receive new intel. Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 4 at Samsung UNPACKED 2014 Episode 2 event in Berlin on September 3, and SamMobile will be live at the event to provide you with all the news as and when it happens.[/spoiler]

      [glow=red]Samsung working on circular Gear smartwatch,SIM-enabled Gear coming with Galaxy Note 4[/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      circular Gear smartwatch

      We’ve known for some time that Samsung is working on various new wearables, including a Gear smartwatch with cellular connectivity and the Gear VR, a virtual reality headset. Today, SamMobile has received information on the former device, and also on a new Gear smartwatch with a circular design similar to the Moto 360 (and LG’s upcoming watch, which it teased very recently.) According to our source, the Gear VR won’t be the only wearable announced alongside the Galaxy Note 4 – it will be accompanied by the SIM-enabled Gear, something that has been reported a few times in the past as well.

      As for the smartwatch with a round display, we’ve heard that it is under development as an answer to the Moto 360 and also to LG’s upcoming circular watch, which isn’t surprising considering a lot of folks have shown interest in round smartwatches, thanks to the fact that these look more like traditional watches while offering all the functionality expected from a smartwatch. What our source didn’t tell us is when the circular Gear will be made official, though we’re guessing it will be a few months after the Galaxy Note 4 gets launched. It’s also unclear if the watch will be powered by Tizen or Android Wear – it could be either, and we will only find out for certain when it goes official or until some concrete details surface in the future.

      [glow=orange]Samsung Announces Tizen-Powered Gear S Smartwatch And Gear Circle Earbuds[/glow]

      www.androidpolice.com

      Gear S and Gear Circle
      This is a story you've heard before - Samsung has announced another smartwatch. Not content with its current bevy of smartwatch offerings, the South Korean manufacturer has introduced the Gear S, a new Tizen-powered watch with a curved display that Samsung says "enhances the smart wearable experience."

      The watch has a 2.0" SAMOLED display at a 360x480 resolution, a 300mAh battery, a dual-core processor, and a handful of sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, heart rate monitor, barometer, and sensors for ambient light and UV. Like some of Samsung's other watches, users can also make and receive calls from the device. The watch can connect to WiFi or through Bluetooth, and Samsung doesn't specify exactly which devices it will play nice with (though Samsung's own S-Health and Gear apps are emphasized).

      The Gear S also has 3G connectivity on 900/2100 or 850/1900 bands (and 2G connectivity on 900/1800 or 850/1900). Samsung doesn't give up any pricing info on the watch, but says it will be available in global markets "in phases" starting in October.



      [hr]
      Announced simultaneously with the Gear S is the Gear Circle, a set of wireless earbuds that connect magnetically to each other to form - you guessed it - a circle. The Gear Circle headset comes with a 180mAh battery packed in, along with a touch sensor. The headphones are expected to launch at the same time as the Gear S.

      [glow=green]Are you ‘Ready To Note’? Samsung releases trailer for Galaxy Note 4 UNPACKED event [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Trailer for Galaxy Note 4 UNPACKED event
      Samsung has released a trailer for the Galaxy Note 4 ahead of its official announcement on September 3 during the UNPACKED event at IFA 2014. This one minute action-packed video shows a “Ready, set…” lead-in before every scene including a bunch of people getting ready for a various set of things such as a riding a bike, a car race, and, for a party. The trailer video doesn’t show or even hint us anything about the Galaxy Note 4, though it mentions about the S Pen and handwriting features which were already displayed in the previous teaser video.

      Going by the previous leaks, the Galaxy Note 4 might feature a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution, Android 4.4 KitKat, octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It might also be equipped with a 16-megapixel IMX240 camera sensor from Sony with 4K video recording capabilities and a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera. We might also see it in a variant which will will be equipped with a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC. Other important features include a fingerprint scanner, S Pen, UV sensor and IPx7 rating certification for dust and water resistance.

      I guess we have to wait till the actual event to know more about the Galaxy Note 4. Till then, hit the play button and enjoy the ‘Ready To Note?’ trailer.

      [glow=blue]Project Wing: Google’s drones could one day drop your groceries from the sky [/glow]

      www.androidauthority.com

      Project Wing


      Google’s latest moonshot could revolutionize the way we move stuff from point A to point B. As Google [X]’s Captain of Moonshots Astro Teller puts it, “Project Wing aspires to take a big chunk of the remaining friction out of moving.”

      To achieve this lofty goal, Google has developed delivery drones that are able to carry a small package, fly autonomously to their destination, and lower the package to the ground through a thin cable. The drones are 1.5 meters wide and 0.8 meters tall and can take off from a fixed spot, like a helicopter, and then switch to flying like an airplane midflight.



      According to an extensive profile in The Atlantic, a few dozen Googlers have been involved with the project since its inception two years ago. In its initial phase, Project Wing was led by Nick Roy, a roboticist on a sabbatical break from MIT; following Roy’s return to his regular job, drone expert Dave Vos took over.

      Over the past year, Google has tested Project Wing in Australia, a country that has more permissive regulations concerning drones compared to the US, where the FTA issued a blanket ban on commercial development of unmanned air vehicles. The video below is a glimpse of the testing – Australian cattle rancher Neil Parfitt “orders” a package including dog food, from project lead Nick Roy, who promptly dispatches a drone with the package.

      [BBvideo 560,340]https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=cRTNvWcx9Oo[/BBvideo]


      As you can see, Google is pretty confident that it solved all the major challenges of the project, though delivery drones are in no way ready for commercial deployment yet. Google still has tons of technical issues to solve, from designing a software interface for users to call drones, to finding a way to avoid dangerous obstacles like power lines, to tweaking the drone’s navigation software for a myriad of edge cases.

      One of the biggest problems that Google needs to surmount is obtaining clearance to operate the drones. To do so, the company says it “wants a seat at the regulatory table.” Commercial drone operation may be illegal for now in the US, but Google has experience in clearing regulatory hurdles – see self-driving cars and smart contact lenses for proof.

      What’s the end goal for Project Wing? Google says it initially thought about speeding up the process of delivering defibrillators to victims of heart attacks in remote places. But it found that integrating drone delivery in the emergency response system would cancel the speed advantage offered by using a drone in the first place.

      Imagine receiving your Play Store order in 30 minutes or less

      So Google is now focusing on speedy delivery of goods – the company’s Shopping Express retail service could greatly benefit from super-fast deliveries. Customers could order their groceries (or, why not, a smartphone from the Play Store) and have them in their front yards within minutes. Amazon is exploring the same idea, while Domino’s experimented with drones for pizza deliveries. But we’re still probably years away from scenarios like these.

      wow!! crazy...

    • Re: News about Samsung and Android

      When you think, this is crazy, I have something about Google X for you!

      [glow=red]Google X admits it’s working on a space elevator, teleportation, hoverboards[/glow]

      www.extremetech.com

      Google X


      Google X, Google’s secretive R&D laboratory, has confirmed that it was indeed working on a space elevator — but sadly had to put the project on the back burner until humanity creates a building material that’s strong enough. The same team at Google X has also investigated teleportation and hoverboards — but again, at least for now, the secret sauce that would unlock the development of these technologies has eluded the Google geniuses.

      These rather remarkable revelations come from a story published by Fast Company, which was given exclusive access to the Google X facility in Mountain View, California. The story mostly focuses on how Google X identifies problems that can be solved with technology, and then the multi-stage process of (hopefully) bringing a solution to market. While Google X could be working on dozens or hundreds of problems/solutions at any one time, Glass is the facility’s only real product that is getting close to consumer adoption. Other prominent projects include Google’s driverless car, smart contact lenses, and Loon — but, like teleportation, hoverboards, and space elevators, there’s no real timeline to bring any of these to market.

      It’s always going to be tricky to bring things to market when you’re standing on the bleeding edge of technology, though. It’s not actually all that hard to come up with a problem that could be solved with technology — such as cheap space travel — but whether we actually have the materials, tooling, and scientific knowhow to create the solution is another matter entirely. That’s exactly what happened when the Google X Rapid Evaluation team looked at the possibility of building a space elevator. According to Dan Piponi, one of the team’s researchers, such a space elevator would require a building material “at least a hundred times stronger than the strongest steel that we have” — and the only material that comes close to that is carbon nanotubes.


      The top half of a space elevator, in low Earth orbit (artist concept, obviously)


      As you may know, we’re actually getting quite good at building long strands of carbon nanotubes, but we still haven’t managed to make a high-quality nanotube rope that’s more than a meter long. To get to low Earth orbit (LEO), we’re going to need nanotube strands that are hundreds of miles long. There’s no reason to believe that we won’t eventually devise a method of producing long chains of nanotubes cheaply, but we’re probably talking about five or 10 years at least. Recently, an in-depth report into the feasibility of space elevators found that we should have the capability to build a LEO space elevator by 2025.

      Google X ran up against similar problems when it was investigating the feasibility of teleportation and hoverboards. Piponi found that teleportation “violates several laws of physics” (but the research did lead onto some research into encrypted communications). They got a bit further with the hoverboard idea, managing to build some small-scale prototypes — but as we’ve covered in the past, scaling that up to a self-balancing board that has the power to levitate a human is currently well beyond the bleeding edge of materials science.


      HUVr hoverboard, in classic Back to the Future pink


      Still, even if these stalwarts of sci-fi remain out of our reach for a few more years, it’s pretty darn cool that Google is working on them. For now, let’s just not think about the repercussions of Google owning the world’s only space elevator or being the first to commercialize teleportation…

      [glow=green]Samsung announces Galaxy Note 4 — QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED Display, 16MP Camera with Smart OIS, UV Sensor [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Galaxy Note 4
      Samsung has just made its second flagship device of the year, the Galaxy Note 4, official at its UNPACKED 2014 Episode 2 event in Berlin, Germany. And, as you would expect from a Galaxy Note series device, it’s a complete powerhouse with all the bells and whistles.

      The Galaxy Note 4 sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display, which reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing a terrific viewing experience. And, you have to take our word for it, the display is simply stunning! Note 4 is the company’s second mobile device to feature Quad HD resolution, the first one was the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A.

      The Galaxy Note 4 features Samsung’s new Galaxy design philosophy, premiered first on the Galaxy Alpha. The device features a metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the display, making it look like a unibody design. Instead of going all metal, Samsung is using a soft-textured back cover which provides a much better grip and makes it easy to control with one hand. We at SamMobile feel that this is the perfect mixture of metal and plastic on a device, making it better ergonomically and at the same time making it look premium. Furthermore to complement the new design, Samsung is using a 2.5D glass screen which provides a tad bit more protection.

      [align=center][thumbnail]http://www.sammobile.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/SM-N910_Charcoal-Black_Front-Pen_002.jpg[/thumbnail][/align]
      Click for big picture


      Samsung has equipped the device with a Samsung Exynos 5 SoC with ARM’s big.LITTLE and Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) technology; 1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad-Core, ARM Mali-T760 GPU with a clock speed of 600MHz / Snapdragon 805 SoC with Quad-core Krait 450 CPU clocked at 2.7GHz, 600MHz Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of 32-bit dual-channel 933 MHz LPDDR3e RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is expendable via micro SD slot up to 128GB.

      The Galaxy Note 4 features a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera with Smart OIS (Optical Image stabilisation) – yes, you read that right, we finally have OIS – and is also capable of shooting video up to Ultra HD (3840×2160) resolution at 30FPS. Smart Optical Image Stabiliser counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. After three generations of the Galaxy S and Note series, Samsung has finally increased the megapixel count on its front-facing camera sensor from 2.1 megapixel to 3.7 megapixel with f1.9. By default, it offers a 90 degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle. Due to the increase in megapixel count, the front-facing camera sensor is now capable of shooting WQHD (2560×1440) video. The camera interface is similar to the one found on the Galaxy S5 with same array of shooting modes, effects and features. However, there are three new camera modes on the Note 4 which are specifically for selfie shots: Selfie (rear-cam), Selfie (front-cam) and Wide Selfie.

      In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy Note 4 supports fifth generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 2X2 MIMO, NFC, IR Blaster, GPS, GLONASS, WiFi Direct and Bluetooth 4.0 BLE / ANT+. Instead of using USB 3.0, MicroUSB 2.0 is being used for syncing and charging the device, which is a step backwards from the Galaxy Note 3. However, Note 4 features Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 which significantly reduces charge times, so most of the users won’t miss USB 3.0 in-regards of its charging speeds. Both SoCs, Exynos and Snapdragon, feature LTE connectivity

      Samsung has packed a ton of sensors in the Note 4 as well, which include: Gesture, Accelerometer, Geo-magnetic, Gyroscope, RGB, IR-LED, Proximity, Barometer, Hall Sensor, Finger Scanner, UV, Heart-rate Monitoring and SoO2 (dependent on market). The device also comes packed with three microphones for better noise cancellation; one on the top of the device, and two on the bottom of the device.

      The biggest selling point of the Galaxy Note 4 is its S Pen, and it has evolved significantly over the past few years. Samsung claims that the new S Pen offers a much more natural and authentic pen experience than its predecessors. The new S Pen also brings a more user-friendly Air Command functionality along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select. Smart Select allows the users to easily piece together content from different origins, and share it with ease.

      “The Galaxy Note series signalled extraordinary innovation within the technology industry. Its larger screen size and iconic S Pen technology launched a new standard in smartphone culture,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. “With the introduction of the Galaxy Note series, we brought the age-old culture of the pen and notepad into the digital world. The new Galaxy Note 4 introduces the most refined Note experience to-date by combining all the latest technology that users expect from the Galaxy series.”

      The Korean manufacturer is known to include a plethora of software features on its Note lineup of devices, this time it’s not very different. Samsung’s S Note application now contains a choice of multiple, seamless note taking methods, and allows users to take pictures of their notes on a paper or a classroom board, and then convert them to an S Note, using the Snap Note feature. Samsung has also taken one of the most useful features of TouchWiz, Multi Window, and refined it for one-handed usability, also improved the multi-tasking experience. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe. Additionally, Samsung has brought in all of the software features from the Galaxy S5, like the Ultra-Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, Private Mode, Kids Mode and more. Out of the box, the device will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX.

      To power all the technology inside the Galaxy Note 4, there is a huge 3229mAh battery. Dimension-wise, the Galaxy Note 4 comes in at 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm and weighs 176 grams. Samsung will be launching the device globally starting October in four colour variants including Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold and Blossom Pink. The Note 4 will cost you €800 in Europe – its the advised price from Samsung Benelux, and we think think it’s worth every penny. The price will come down eventually, but if you are a Samsung fan you will probably getting the device on launch.

      [glow=red]Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note Edge with a curved display [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Galaxy Note Edge
      It was rumored quite a few times that the Galaxy Note 4 would have a variant with a curved screen, and Samsung has officially announced that variant today alongside its new flagship. Called the Galaxy Note Edge, the device comes with a curved screen on one side of the device, similar to the one we saw on Samsung’s YOUM prototype. The Edge screen is somewhat similar to a smartwatch – basically, it will be a companion display that shows things like notifications and allow access to frequently used apps, with the advantage that you won’t need to move away from whatever it is you’re doing on the main display, and will be able to access it even when the phone’s cover is closed.

      It might seem like an over-the-top thing, but the curved screen side does look like it could be pretty useful, mainly for quick access to some functions. Other than the curved screen, the Galaxy Note Edge is mostly similar to the Galaxy Note 4 in terms of hardware. The display is a Quad HD+ (2560×1600 + 190) Super AMOLED unit, though it is a tad smaller at 5.6-inch. The phone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, and also includes 3 GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera with Smart OIS, 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera, 32/64 GB of internal storage expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card, and a 3,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

      The Galaxy Note Edge runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, and it will be available in Charcoal Black and Frost White sometime later this year (likely in October, along with the Galaxy Note 4.)

      [glow=red] SamMobile’s experience with the Gear VR [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Gear VR
      Samsung is also stepping up its Virtual Reality (VR) game at IFA 2014. It has teamed up with Oculus VR, known from the Oculus Rift (Virtual Reality Headset for 3D Gaming), to enrich our lives with the Samsung Gear VR. The Samsung Gear VR allows you to enjoy an immersive virtual reality experience wherever you are!

      In its essence, the Samsung Gear VR basically is a head-mount for your Galaxy Note 4 device. It consists of a frame, in which you dock in your mobile phone, and 2 lenses on it. The 2 lenses are used to provide the best focus for the user of the Gear VR. However, they also made sure that people who wear prescription glasses can focus the Gear VR themselves (with a focus wheel on top), so you don’t have to wear glasses at all while using the Gear VR. Samsung has put a lot of time and effort into making the Gear VR light to carry around and also to not put all pressure from the Note 4’s weight on the face of the user.

      At the moment, it is only compatible with the regular Galaxy Note 4 (to be more specific, not with the Galaxy Note Edge due to its different screen size). The Galaxy Note 4’s Super AMOLED QHD (2560×1440) display has a very low latency, which has significantly been reduced than previous screens from Samsung, and also allows very vivid colors to be displayed on the screen.

      Some might wonder what use cases for Virtual Reality devices, like this, might be. A few use cases where this form factor might come handy include watching 3D movies in Cinema mode, playing 3D games, watch 360 degrees video education and even provide real-life simulations.

      The Gear VR will cost you €200, and if you buy it as a bundle with the Gamepad it will cost you €250; both prices are advised prices from Samsung Benelux.

    • Re: News about Samsung and Android

      Since we have a lot of nationalities present on the forum perhaps we can find a country where the N4 is cheaper because of the tax regiment of that country and then export them (1000) towards the various directions of the planet.
