Oh look, the Galaxy K (S5 Zoom) actually looks like a phone

The alleged Galaxy K

Remember the Galaxy S4 Zoom? The smartphone/camera hybrid landed last year with a… well, without a bang. Customers weren’t really swayed by the rather curious device, which combined a Galaxy S4 with a 10X optical zoom telescopic lens. But Samsung isn’t ready to give up on the concept just yet and will reportedly unveil its successor in less than a week, under the Galaxy K brand.

We already learned many of the Galaxy K’s specifications, but now we have two leaked shots suggesting that the device will actually lean more towards a smartphone, rather than a point and shoot camera, at least when it comes to its thickness.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom of last year was not only bulkier overall, but it also featured a protruding section that made it easy to handle, but also added a lot of girth to its profile.

Now Samsung appears to have opted for a pebble-like shape for the device, with only the area around the lens (which itself appears to be smaller than on the first gen) protruding. And, while the first leaked image of the Galaxy K showed a Note 3-like texture, from these pics we can tell that the final product will adopt the dimpled finish found on the Galaxy S5.

The alleged Galaxy K

To recap, rumored specs for the Galaxy K include:

  • 20.2MP sensor
  • 10X optical zoom
  • 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 720 x 1280 resolution
  • Samsung Exynos 5 hexa-core, Mali-T624 GPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Samsung will introduce the Galaxy K on April 29 at an event in Singapore, and that’s when we’ll find out just how much better the device will be compared to its predecessor. Fingers crossed!

Moto 360 is Motorola’s first Android Wear smartwatch and it looks amazing

Google just introduced Wear, a brand new implementation of Android for wearable devices. The initial focus is on smartwatches, and the first OEMs to launch Wear-based devices are LG, Samsung, Asus, HTC, and Motorola.

LG already announced the G Watch, due in the next quarter, and now it’s time for Motorola to attempt to dazzle us with the Moto 360.

The Moto 360 will be voice-enabled, feature deep Google Now integration, and a fitness component. Besides that, the device looks like a beautiful conventional timepiece, with a round watchface and even a mechanical button on the right hand side. With the Moto 360, Motorola says it wants to “reimagine the wristwatch for the future” and continue with the basic wristwatch design that “has endured for a century because of its elegance and usefulness at a glance.”

While the company doesn’t provide many details on the technical aspects of the Moto 360, it does hint that users will be able to wake the device with a simple flick of the wrist. From there is voice controls: “Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions like who won the Stanford vs. New Mexico game or what time your flight leaves, or to get stuff done like scheduling an appointment, sending a text, setting an alarm or taking a note.”

The Moto 360 will be available in a variety of style worldwide starting this summer, but the US will get it first. No info on pricing just yet.

For more details, or just to gawk at the beauty of a truly classy smartwatch, head over to the official Moto 360 page.

It looks like the CrackBerry nation would be happy to see HERE Drive+ come to BlackBerry 10

[#protected_0#]

[#protected_0#]

A short while back we ran a poll asking if BlackBerry users would like to see HERE Drive+ come to BlackBerry 10. The voice guided navigation software which is available for Windows Phones does a great job in comparison to BlackBerry Maps. They both get the job done but HERE Now+ offers more and from experience it’s a little more precise when finding a location by road and house number.

Huawei smartwatch photos looks more like a wristband

[#protected_0#]

Chinese manufacturer [#protected_0#] has promised to “unlock possibilities” this coming MWC 2014 but, based on this photos, it might not be the possibility that many have in mind. If the speculation behind prove to be correct, we might be staring at what Huawei has envisioned its smartwatch to be.

It should come as no surprise that Huawei is said to have a smarwatch prepared for next week’s big tech event. After all, almost everyone is getting on the smartwatch train as fast as they can. And Chinese device manufacturers aren’t exactly known for letting the latest trends pass them by without adding their own spin. That said, we were perhaps hoping that Huawei would deliver something interesting to the mix.

Instead, what we have is a device that is already garnering some rather negative feedback over the Internet. The pair of photos come from, once again, the Weibo account of a Huawei official, referring to the new toy. Given how it seemingly tells the time, the immediate conclusion was that this is Huawei’s rumored smartwatch. If it is, then the company might be in a world of hurt with the reception it might receive.

That said, it is perhaps too early to jump to such a conclusion. It could very well simply be a sports or health wristband, not unlike the LG LifeBand Touch, since it more closely resembles that device. We will definitely know what it really is when Huawei completely unlocks its showcase next week.

OmniROM looks back at 2013 accomplishments, will have privacy features soon

As customary this time of year, OmniROM takes stock of what it has managed to fulfill this year and gives its users a sneak peek at what it’s cooking up for 2014. Unsurprisingly, it’s not a long list, but considering how young the project is, it’s success is quite impressive.

OmniROM is barely three months old, having formally launched in October. It’s birth wasn’t free of controversy, as the project itself is somewhat of a reaction to CyanogenMod‘s new commercial direction. OmniROM, then, tries to start where CyanogenMod left off, focusing on community involvement and openness, both in development and in end features, above all things.

In that short span of time, OmniROM has managed to gather quite a following. In its year end performance report, it claims to have had 90 contributors and 30 nightly builds. It has also managed to introduce new features or improvements over old ones, such as non-intrusive incoming call notifications, better audio management via an enhanced DSP manager, and the somewhat controversial per-app permission control using App Ops. It also scored some points with the open source crowd as well by announcing the OpenDetla OTA updater, which will let users download updates in smaller chunks.

Of course, OmniROM’s work is far from done and the group will face be trying to check off a few todos next year. The custom ROM will definitely have to expand its device roster if it wants to gain mass adoption, appeal, and testing. It will likewise have to match the security and privacy features that are becoming a necessity these days. They might even inject a few UI tweaks here and there to improve the user experience as they see fit. 2014 will definitely be an exciting and busy year for OmniROM and we wish them the best of luck.

Neptune Pine smartwatch looks to Kickstarter for a financial boost

Despite naysayers and critics, now that the smartwatch ball has started to roll, there seems to be no end to independent groups and small-scale manufacturers from trying to carve out a name for themselves in the nascent market. The most recent one that will probably hit your news feeds soon is the Neptune Pine which, in all honesty, is a smartwatch that probably isn’t a watch at all.

f11a13c2fb40x303.png Neptune Pine smartwatch looks to Kickstarter for a financial boost

Given the novelty of the form factor, it’s rather hard to pin down what a smartwatch truly is. Some, like Samsung, Sony, and most fitness companies, would brand smartwatches simply as accessories or tie-ins to a more powerful device like a smartphone. Others, especially those with a more imaginative bent, prefer to see standalone and more complete devices. Just like the notorious Goophone, whose smartwatch we saw last week, the creators of Neptune Pine envision a smartwatch that can function without a smartphone. Actually, they envision a smartwatch that functions as a smartphone.

If detractors of the Samsung Galaxy Gear chide it for its size, they’ll probably be dumbfounded by the Neptune Pine. This smartwatch sports a 2.4-inch 320

Microsoft looks towards HTC for dual-boot Android and Windows Phone option

Dual-booting Android smartphones are far from common at this point. We have seen some solutions presented, but they are aftermarket and likely only used by the geekier crowd. One dual-boot example includes the MoDaCo.SWITCH which allows HTC One and Galaxy S 4 users to bounce between stock Android and Sense/TouchWiz. Well, if Microsoft has their way, it looks like we may see something with Android and Windows Phone.

fdcf82265d712111.jpg Microsoft looks towards HTC for dual boot Android and Windows Phone option

Details are coming by way of a recent Bloomberg report, which notes that Terry Myerson of Microsoft approached HTC about just such a device last month. This has yet to be confirmed by anyone within Microsoft and in fact, at this time the report touches on how the source asked not to be identified because the talks are still private. Not to mention, only preliminary at this time.

That being said, there are still some details available. It looks like Myerson has talked about cutting, or even eliminating the license fee to make this a more attractive deal for HTC. With Microsoft currently sitting with just 3.7 percent of the mobile market, this could potentially be a way to increase the user base. Of course, that would mean Android users would have to one, buy this particular phone and two, be willing to boot into and use Windows Phone.

Without bashing Windows Phone, we aren’t sure how many Android users would be willing to make that switch. And going back to this seeming like something that would be attractive only to the geekier users, we suspect that group would also be more loyal to Android. Regardless though, assuming HTC could pull this off and have the handset arrive with decent performance, it may be an option to consider. Especially for those who are mobile curious.

Still, given these talks are coming from an unnamed source and deemed nothing more than preliminary at this point, those specifics have yet to be discussed. Basically, that would bring the question as to which operating system was primary and which would take the back seat. Given where Android currently stands as compared to Windows Phone, it seems likely that HTC would focus on Android first, that is, unless Microsoft really presented a solid deal.

BlackBerry ‘C-Series’ smartphone caught on camera, looks slightly familiar

 

Now that the BlackBerry Z30 has been announced, a lot of folks have been asking what’s next for BlackBerry in terms of devices. Well, after the announcements earlier about BlackBerry reducing their upcoming device portfolio from six down to four devices, the roadmap has certainly changed a bit but one thing that might still be on track is what is known as the Cafe Series otherwise known as the C-Series.

HTC One for Verizon pictured: it looks like any other HTC One, and that’s great

verizon htc one

The famed purveyor of mobile insider info @evleaks now has a name – he is Evan Blass, the former editor of Engadget and Pocket Now. But coming out as the man behind @evleaks hasn’t stopped Blass from providing the leaks that made him famous. The latest snippet of illicit info concerns the HTC One on Verizon: @evleaks tweeted this image earlier today:

verizon htc one leak

At first blush, it’s just another HTC One press shot. But the 4G LTE logo in the phone’s status bar gives it away as a Verizon device.

What’s interesting about this shot is the absence of any customization on the device. Verizon has been known to plaster its logo on devices, and sometimes even on buttons, like it notoriously did with the Galaxy Note 2. Maybe Verizon learned from the Note 2 backlash, or maybe they just didn’t find a proper spot to put their logo on the HTC One. Anyway, we’re happy that the HTC One remained unspoiled, at least on its front.

Now for the big question – when is the Verizon HTC One going to be released? We think it will happen sometime this month, though Big Red only said “later this summer”. The phone in the press image shows the September 5 date, but we hope that’s just a placeholder.
