Samsung's alleged Galaxy K camera phone leaks out again

 

Ahead of Samsung's K-themed event in Asia, more images of the Korean manufacturers next camera focused smartphone have leaked out. Previously referred to as the Galaxy S5 Zoom, the new moniker is reportedly the Galaxy K – which would tie in nicely to the forthcoming event – and it has that distinctive optical zoom lens on the back.

Perhaps more importantly, this device looks to be slimmer than its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 zoom, which is important since it's supposed to be a phone as well as a camera. The Galaxy S4 zoom was far too cumbersome to use as an everyday smartphone, whereas this looks much more manageable.

viber

Showing up a bit late to the iOS 7 party, Viber has released an update to the iPhone version of the application that incorporates the same flat design we’ve seen throughout the new operating system.

Viber had been in pretty desperate need of a redesign for quite some time. On the one hand, there’s something charming about an up-and-coming app that looks slightly outdated or unpolished (the way Snapchat used to be), but Viber has grown up and needs a design that matches that level of maturity.

Xiaomi has decided to one-up fledgling OnePlus by holding its press event half an hour ahead of the other. However, Xiaomi's surprise lineup, which consists of two routers and a TV box, might not be what many have been excitedly waiting for.

 

First up is the Mi Router, something that has already been common knowledge among testers. This wireless router supports dual-band WiFi 802.11 ac and comes with its own 1 TB hard drive. The form of the device itself is rather strange, sporting a elongated cylindrical shape that might remind some of one of Apple's products.

OnePlus One

OnePlus has finally taken off the veils from its highly hyped device. It has promised to never settle for mediocrity and put out the best of the best, but the question now is whether it was able to deliver on its word. Like many devices, it's a hit on some and a miss on others, but the market will be the final judge once it finally lands in the hands of users.

It’s a rare employer these days that expects workers to stay consistently at one desk, in one office: travel and flexible working practices are the order of the day.

No longer does the word ‘workplace’ designate a cubicle: instead, it implies a state of readiness for a mobile workforce that is expected to spring into action any time, any place… at home, on a train or at a hotel, on a plane or in an airport, or at your company’s other offices. To make yourself ready for these situations, then, you’ve got to think tools: which apps can best facilitate your transition into mobile working? Here’s a few to get you started….

HTC Droid DNA Set To Receive Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update

 

There has been a whole lot of focus on the recent introduction of the HTC One (M8), which is definitely a leg up on its predecessor, the HTC One (M7). Well, while the latest Android-powered flagship from HTC will arrive with Google’s Android KitKat operating system version, where HTC Droid DNA, one of the older smartphones around from the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, will soon be on the receiving end of a spanking new Android 4.4.2 KitKat update

T-Mobile bribes BlackBerry users to switch to a Samsung Galaxy S5

T-Mobile is at it again with another "promo" that will surely ruffle BlackBerry's feathers once more. This time, however, the US carrier is encouraging its BlackBerry-toting subscribers to switch not to an iPhone but to any Samsung smartphone.

In exchange for jumping to a Galaxy S5 or a Galaxy Note 3 or any of Samsung's other Android devices, T-Mobile will be giving $200 worth of gift cards. But if you are not a fan of the Korean manufacturer's plastic lineup, you can still avail of a lower $100 trade by switching to any smartphone that isn't a BlackBerry. Wherever you go, there is something in store as long as you denounce your allegiance to BlackBerry.

 

 
Samsung Galaxy S5 now supported by TWRP recovery

Tinkerers and modders who desire the Galaxy S5 for its hardware but with very little interest in Samsung's bloatware now have a fighting chance. The latest 2.7 version of the Team Win Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is now available for Galaxy S5 devices of the "klte" variant.

 

TWRP rose through the ranks at a time when Clockwork Recovery or CWM was seemingly stagnating in terms of new features, primary among them being the lack of a touch-based interface. Although Koushik "Koush" Dutta is back to developing CWM, he has also signified that he doesn't really want to take CWM beyond the simple and focused recovery that it is. This leaves TWRP a bigger room to grow.

Vivo XShot Passes 40k AnTuTu Mark

 

There is always a first time for everything, so this week marks the first smartphone in the world that will break the 40,000 barrier in the AnTuTu benchmark, and it is none other than the Vivo XShot that has the honor of doing so. One of the closer rivals in recent times where benchmark reading is concerned would be the OnePlus One, where that model touched the 38,000 mark. Well, the Vivo XShot edged past the barrier by hitting 40,023, which also means it has overtaken the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra along the way.

Nexus 8 By HTC?

Could HTC be the ones behind the upcoming Nexus 8 tablet from Google? Apparently so, as there are signs from “upstream supply chain” sources that point to the Taiwanese company working on the next generation Nexus tablet. Granted, HTC has not been doing too well lately, despite having released fine smartphones in the mold of the HTC One (both the M7 and M8 versions). While Google was said to have approached HTC before Asus for the Nexus 7, it seemed that HTC was too busy back then, where in hindsight, it might have helped ease HTC’s bottom line today.

Samsung Building Fire Caused Samsung.com Website To Go Down

 

If you happen to be using a Samsung device earlier this morning, you might have received some error messages, as well as being unable to log on to Samsung.com. There is a very good reason for that, which is also a reminder to those of us who are so engrossed in the virtual world, that we are not quite sure what to make of the corporeal world anymore. Apparently, the Samsung SDS building located in Gwacheon, South Korea, saw its fourth floor catch fire, knocking off the Samsung.com website along the way.
