Galaxy S IV I9502 photos leak, is this the final design?

main source
A bunch of leaked images has surfaced on a Chinese forum, revealing a Samsung Android smartphone with two SIM card slots, a 1080p screen, 2 gigs of RAM, 13 MP camera, an 1.8 GHz clocked processor and Android 4.2.1 on board.

 The smartphone goes by the name of GT-I9502, which suggests it's the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S IV for China Unicom. If that turns out true this could be the design of Samsung's next flagship device. Also the dotted underlayer of the back panel resembles that of the invite Samsung sent for its upcoming Galaxy S IV announcement, which adds credibility to these leaked images.

 However, given how good Samsung was in keeping the design of its recent flagships, this could also be simply a holster for testing purposes. The practice of using generic prototype shells in order to protect the final design was used by Samsung with both the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II. That way when the phone is sent to carriers and other companies the design couldn't be leaked.

 If this turns out to be the Galaxy S IV's final design then Samsung hasn't really changed anything significant about its flagship. On one hand it doesn't seem likely that Samsung is getting tired of it, given that most of its smartphones are now using the glossy plastic nature-inspired design. But on the other hand people seem eager for a change and want something more and Samsung usually listens to the voice of the street.
We're getting closer to the March 14 unveiling of the Galaxy S IV so we don't have to wait that long to find out.

Qmobile Noir A11 Review and Pictures

 Assalamo-alaikum Everyone.
I found these pictures of Qmobile Noir A11 on and thought I should share with  you. Liaqat Ali on his blog has given an excellent review of Noir A11 and also compared it with Noir A10. So if you are looking for a phone with bigger screen at a great price then Noir A11 seems like the best option out there. I will summarize his review here.
Qmobile Noir A11 has the following Specs.
CPU: 1 Ghz Dual Core Processor
Display: 5 Inch LCD WVGA (800×480) 187 PPI, Capacitive Multi Touch
Ram: 512 MB
Storage: 4GB
Sensors: Orientation Sensor, Magnetic Sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity Sensor and Light Sensor
Camera: 5MP Main, 0.3MP Secondary
OS: Android 4.0.4 ICS.
Qmobile noir A11 comes with a flipcover which really looks great in the pictures, specially the white color gives the phone an executive look. Noir A11 has very similar specs then Noir A11 and infact has a less mega pixel camera with A10.
But I would say that this flip cover alone would be my reason to choose Noir A11  over Noir A10. Noir A11 comes with a 5 inch WVGA  (Wide Video Graphics Array), comparing it with Noir A10 IPS FWVGA (Full Wide Video Graphics Array) Screen, thats definately a downgrade.
WVGA screens have a resolution of 800×480 and FWVGA screens have 854×480, this is not s significant difference and this is why Noir a11 is narrower ( 142mm) then Noir A10 ( 147mm)
According to Liaqat Ali Noir a10 screen is far better then Noir A11 giving better viewing angles.
 Noir A11 comes with light sensors which means the phone can detect the available light in the enviroment and adjust the screen brightness. Noir A10 lacks these sensors and this is a great feature which helps save battery.A11 seems to have a more accurate touch sensitive screen as compared with Noir A10.
 Noir A11 comes with 5 MP camera and it doesnt say on the website that it has AF features however Noir A10 has 8 MP camera with AF. However Liaqat Ali mentions that the camera results of these two phones is not much.

From the given dimensions on the Qmobile website. A11 is slightly thicker (10mm)  then A10 (9.7 mm). Noir A11 looks very much like galaxy note and the flip cover also adds to this resemblence. Noir A11 also seems to have a better build quality then A10.

Inq SO.HO brings HTC Blink Feed-like features to all Androids

 Inq has introduced its own launcher, known as SO.HO, which will bring Facebook and Twitter right to the home screen of your Android device.

The name is a contraction of "social" and "homepage" which is exactly what this is, and brings a service similar to that of HTC’s new Blink Feed feature on the HTC One, although not as wide ranging in its approach.

That’s set to change, however, as SO.HO is in beta and Inq has said it plans to add more networks in the coming months.

If you don’t know what a launcher it, it’s basically the screen you land on when you unlock your phone. It includes the apps tray buttons and shortcut icons. The new Inq SO.HO app replaces what’s currently on your phone so that it can change the behaviour of it slightly.

Essentially, that means that the SO.HO app can give you scrolling content running behind those bottom shortcuts, rather than sitting like a widget in the middle of the page. When you swipe the page up, those launcher shortcuts will vanish, so you have more space to read, and scroll through the feed.
 Once you’re signed into Facebook or Twitter, they will both give you scrolling timelines on your home screen, rather than having to open those apps. Tapping the top bar will switch between the two and pulling the list down will cause it to refresh.

There’s also the option to post to the respective social networks via a top button. Tap to Tweet or update your status, and you’ll get all the normal options such as adding pictures, locations and so on.

In Facebook you can Like a status, and tapping on it opens up the update, so you can comment if you want to, or open it up in the Facebook app proper. You also get the option to hide users, so if some automated bot is filling your feed with drivel, you can filter it out.

On the Twitter front things are less dynamic. Tapping on a tweet will open it in the Twitter app proper (or browser if you don’t have one installed), but there are no options to reply, retweet or anything else. That means it’s a two-step process to retweet something you like.

Those worried about losing the home screen to SO.HO shouldn’t be. You can still have multiple pages, so you can swipe it away to return to a regular page of widgets or shortcuts and you get the option to nominate which is default home screen too, so you could have SO.HO set-up as a second screen.

The first teaser ad for the Samsung Galaxy S IV is out pirce in pak

Samsung is shifting its PR machine in full gear to build up hype over the Samsung Unpacked event planned for March 14. It’s no big secret that the company will introduce its Galaxy S IV new flagship there. Even the tag line of the teasers is not coy about it – “Be ready 4 the next Galaxy”.
A week after the official announcement of the date for the Unpacked event, Samsung released this teaser video. The company is promising nothing short of “the most amazing product to hit the market since TVs went color”
click here to watch the video on youtube

Young Jeremy Maxwell hasn’t been doing a terrific job at keeping the secrets of what’s in the box – various tipsters have taken a peek and are reporting a 4.99” Super AMOLED screen with FullHD resolution, Exynos 5 Octa chipset with 8-core CPU (4x Cortex-A15, 4x Cortex-A7) and a 13MP / FullHD camera.
There's some speculation that the exec that walks into the room while on the phone is talking on a Galaxy S IV. That doesn't make much sense since the S IV is supposed to be a secret hidden in the box. Plus, all you can see really is something black and rectangular, so not very interesting.
The teaser ad ends with "to be continued..." so we can expect more videos soon.


Tizen OS: Brief History, Roots, and Current Status

This year’s Mobile World Conference was different from most. There were still all the device presentations, announcements, and revelations that we’ve come to expect from the biggest tech event of the mobile industry each year. What’s different was that this time, the spotlight wasn’t taken by hardware, but rather by software—and for good reason. After all, it isn’t every day that three upcoming mobile operating systems backed by big names like Samsung, Intel, Mozilla, and Canonical are showcased at the same event. Apart from Mozilla’s Firefox OS and Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch, MWC 2013 also saw Samsung and Intel finally showcase Tizen OS running on actual hardware.

Among all contemporary mobile operating systems, Tizen OS has had perhaps the most tumultuous and complex history. First there was Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin, before the two companies decided to combine them together into MeeGo, in collaboration with many major hardware and software partners. Then Nokia decided putting all its eggs in Windows Phone’s basket, and abandoned the platform after releasing the amazing N9 running MeeGo with Nokia’s Harmattan UI that won hearts of users and critics alike, despite not making many sales due to Nokia’s abandonment. While all this was occuring, Samsung had also decided to build an open OS of its own in order to decrease its dependence on Android, and the result was Bada. After Intel’s abandonment, the future looked bleak for MeeGo, and it indeed proved out to be so as well. The OS was shortly abandoned completely by all other supporters as well, and Tizen was born under the patronage of The Linux Foundation. Later, Samsung decided to join the picture as well, with an aim to merge Bada with Tizen.

After being in works for several years under all the different names, it was actually disappointing to see what was showcased at the MWC demo. With a conventional home screen that seemed to be nothing more than a mere grid of icons and an overall UI not too different from Android’s, Tizen seems to bring nothing new to the table that might lure users into switching to it when devices running the OS show up in the market. Granted it’s still in the making and what was demoed was essentially an early preview, it came nowhere close to what Canonical showcased in Ubuntu Touch.

The experience offered by the OS running on the demo devices was sub par at best, being laggy as well as lacking anything truly special and intuitive that’s not already out there. For an OS that has been in the making for several years by now and has major names of the industry backing it, this seems nothing short of inexplicable. One good thing was the announcement of the Tizen 2.0 Magnolia SDK being made available for developers to start working on apps for the OS. That said, there’s still a long way to go before we start seeing devices running Tizen hit the market. There have been no official time frames announced in this regard, but it is expected to be late 2013 by earliest. Also, since Bada is essentially being merged into Tizen, many are speculating whether Samsung will decide to abandon the devices running Bada, or upgrade them to the new platform in the future.

more pics and specificaion of QMOBILE NOIR A16 QUAD CORE IS HERE

The large 5-inch 720p display takes center stage and it converts to a pixel density of 294ppi. On top of the display we have the 2-megapixel camera and the usual suite of sensors. The back is highlighted with the large 8-megapixel camera which is supplemented by a LED flash on the bottom and there is also a speaker on the lower edge. The back plate can be removed quite easily. Once open, one can see the large 2,000mAh battery, the twin SIM card slots and a microSD card slot. On the left we get the twin volume rockers, the top is home to a 3.5mm jack and the microUSB port and the right is home to the power button.
 The QMOBILE NOIR A16 HD scores heavily in terms of its hardware spec. It comes equipped with a large 5-inch 720p IPS display, a quad-core MediaTek SoC, which is clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory (Only 1.77GB is available to the user), a microSD card slot, dual-SIM capabilities, a 8-megapixel camera and a 2,000 mAh battery.

When compared to 720p displays on phones like the Galaxy S III, and the HTC One X, then we have to say it is not the best, but for the price it is absolutely fantastic. In fact, apart from the Lava A1000 no other phone in this price range offers such a high-resolution display. The display is pretty washed out and blacks are not very deep, but it has decent viewing angles and is adequately bright when the brightness is bumped. While it may not be the best 720p display in the market, at this price point it is the best one save for the Lava A1000, which we have not tested yet.
 The QMOBILE NOIR A16 HD is powered by MediaTek’s MT6589 SoC, which has four ARM Cortex A7 cores that hum away at 1.2GHz. It works in concert with 1GB of RAM and a PowerVR 5XT GPU. But its performance cannot be compared with competing Nvidia Tegra 3 or Samsung Exynos chipsets that power the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III, because those chipsets have four ARM Cortex A9 cores. On the other hand, the ARM Cortex A7 SoC on the Canvas HD is more frugal with the way it sips power and that is evident in its battery life. So, it will be unfair to expect performance that will compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

In a way we can say its performance is closer to dual-core ARM Cortex A9 chips found on phones like the Samsung Galaxy S II. That said, the Canvas HD just hums along without skipping a beat, though there is an in-tangible lag in its performance, especially if one has used other smartphones with quad-core processors. People living in a dual-core world will not notice it because the general performance of the device falls right between the dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPUs that were found on the flagship Android smartphones from 2011 and the quad-core ARM Cortex A9 chips in the flagship phones of 2012.
Even when we ran benchmarks our theory was ratified. For instance on the Quadrant benchmark it scored above 4,000. This is well above a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU and well below a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU. Even the web browser performance is quite smooth. Admittedly, the pinch to zoom and scrolling is not as smooth as say the Galaxy Nexus or even the Galaxy S II, but for most purposes it is more than adequate.
