Is This Samsung Galaxy S4 (Exclusive) ?

March 19, 2012 | Posted in Technology | By

Now this is quite interesting, everyone is waiting for the release of Samsung Galaxy SIII and there is a rumor that Samsung is planning to go for Samsung Galaxy S IV (S4) as well. Though it seems to be quite unbelievable and unreliable. Recently I was in a tour with my friends and I met with a guy who is currently working in Samsung. We had a conversation about Samsung Galaxy SII and upcoming device SIII. I was totally amazed when he told that Samsung is also planning to launch Samsung Galaxy S4 in near future. Although he was not at all interested to provide any information about Galaxy SIII or S4, but when I doubted on him regarding Samsung Galaxy S4, he told that a team of his senior officers are working on the specs and model of Samsung Galaxy S4 and he also showed me few projected models for Samsung Galaxy S4, which he had in his laptop. One of the most considered model is below.


On promising that I will not disclose his name, he let me know that Samsung Galaxy S4 might have 3D display and 3D camera. The device will have only one physical button on the right hand side, which is a POWER BUTTON along with one sensor touch button for camera. Left side of the device has sensor touch buttons for volume up and volume down. Again there are four sensor touch buttons at the bottom of the screen.

After seeing the above image, it seems that front camera and proximity sensor has been shifted to right for better management. The screen size is still undecided. He did not provided any information about CPU, RAM, memory, etc. The knowledge he had about this device makes me feel that this rumor is quite promising. I have taken that person in my circle so that we can get more information about Samsung Galaxy S4. I will update this post if I will get some more info.

Although, the knowledge base and projected model pics he had shown me in his laptop about Samsung Galaxy S4 seems quite promising but still we cant confirm that this is trust able at this stage.

UPDATE 09-17-12: Today Samsung unofficially gave a date of February 2013 to March 2013 for the release of the new Samsung Galaxy S4. Some reports are saying this is when it will be released to the public and others reports are saying this is the date Samsung will show this iconic new phone to the world. I don’t know who to believe yet but I do plan to keep everyone updated as soon as I find out the truth about the release date.

New photos expected in 2 weeks. Check back weekly for details

March 15, 2012 | Posted in Samsung Galaxy S 2 | By

Finally a good news for Samsung Galaxy SII owners, Samsung has recently released official Android 4.0 (Ice-cream Sandwich) update for SGS2. The ICS firmware is dated 9th March 2012. Although Samsung has taken a little bit of time for releasing the ICS update still this firmware has no bluish ICS interface and is very much similar to Android 2.3.6. Galaxy SII owners must be expected something better, I, myself being a Samsung Galaxy S2 user, wanted a little more from them. Right now we can only wait for another update with few new features.

The firmware is based on I9100XXLPQ (4.0.3) with modem XXLPQ and CSC OXALPQ, while the kernel build is 3.0.15. Although the update has not taken place worldwide and is limited to certain countries, but still if you want to try this ICS final build from Samsung, then you can have a look at XDA Forum or SAM Mobile, from where you can download this firmware along with the instructions for flashing/updating your Samsung Galaxy S2.

So it’s a very exciting news for Samsung Galaxy S2 owners, Galaxy SII is receiving Ice-cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) update on March 15. Although it can be taken that this update will not be available for everyone as Samsung will carry out this update in many phases, so it might be possible that your phone or country will receive Android 4.0 update after March 15, might be after one or two week.

Although the features and launcher of this update is not confirmed, but few confirmed features are face recognition lock, better battery, etc. As a Samsung Galaxy S2 owner, I, myself is also quite excited about this ICS update, hope to see this update running in my phone soon.


ICS Rom For Galaxy Note Leaks Out

February 23, 2012 | Posted in Technology | By

Galaxy Note, one of the best Android phone in the market, has got a leaked Android 4.0 (Ice-cream sandwich) ROM. This firmware is based on Android 4.0.3 and is named as I9220ZSLP1. This ROM is only for testing purpose, as it is only a leaked version and may cause harm to your phone, so it is advised that new users should not try to update their Galaxy Note to ICS Leaked ROM.


Currently it is expected that Galaxy Note will receive an official stable update to Android 4.0 (ICS) near the end of April this year, but still there is no confirmation from Samsung. This year Samsung has remained quite secretive in disclosing their upcoming devices and firmware updates. Already there are rumors about the release date and specs of Samsung Galaxy S3.

Although developers at XDA are working hard to get the ICS working on many capable phones before the update is rolled out by the companies. We can already see that XDA developers have ported a stable version of ICS to Samsung Galaxy S, although it has already been announced by Samsung that there will be no Ice-cream sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy S.


Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) Releasing Soon..??

February 17, 2012 | Posted in Technology | By

Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) is releasing in the second quarter of this year. Although currently Android 4.0 (Ice cream sandwich) has not been incorporated in all the phones, and there are rumors in the market that Android 5.0 (Jelly Bean) is about to release in the 2nd quarter. It is rumored that Google wants to launch Android 5.0 near the date of launch of Windows 8, so that the same can be integrated in tablet/notebook.

It will be interesting to see that how mobile companies will schedule the release of Android 4.0 and Android 5.0 in near future for their old phones like Samsung Galaxy S2, that are still comes pre-loaded with Android 2.3.6 (Ginger bread), as it may take time to customize the operating systems quickly. Although it can be taken as the new mobile phones will comes pre-loaded with Android 5.0 but the mobile companies cannot under-look the current gingerbread devices and it will be quite tough for them to release the updates frequently for all the capable phones.

Android 5 (Jelly Bean)

It seems that Google wants to compete with Apple iOS 5, and is giving its 110% to capture the whole mobile market with Android. It also seems that mobile companies are quite slower in scheduling the updates for their pre-existing devices. But currently it seems to be a rumor that Android 5.0 will be releasing in the second quarter of this year. The only thing we can do right now is to wait for any official announcement from Google itself.
