WhatsApp Video Calling feature to arrive in Q1 2016 – [Rumors]

WhatsApp Video Calling feature to arrive in Q1 2016 – [Rumors]

Now here’s a feature everyone’s been anxiously waiting to get their hands on since quite a while now and if these rumors are indeed true, then you just might get to use it sometime next year. That’s right folks, according to MacerKopf, our friends from Germany, WhatsApp are currently working on a major update that is expected to be rolled out sometime in the first quarter of 2016 and one of the major attractions of this update would be video calling. Since its launch some 6 years ago, the instant messaging client has been one of the most used and downloaded applications among all major platforms including Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows, Symbian devices and many more. The application has further developed a huge fan base since the last year or so especially with the introduction of its free voice calling feature but the one thing that eluded fans was the option for video calling (a feature currently being dominated by its major competitors like Viber and Skype). This trend might very well be about to change if these rumors indeed turn out to be true. As for now, we have just managed to get our hands on a leaked image of what the video calling feature of WhatsApp might look like. We’ll be following up with this story in the weeks to come so do stick around. In the mean time here’s wishing you all a very happy Happy holiday season from all of us here at Talk Android Phones. Stay blessed you guys…Cheers...

Android 6.0 or M to come with Multi-Window Feature [RUMOR]

Android 6.0 or M to come with Multi-Window Feature [RUMOR]

Every year Google comes up with its new edition to the Android family naming them after tasty deserts. The names usually are alphabetical so after J, K, L now its the turn for “M”.  So, it would go as Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lolipop and now rumored to be Muffin. This is still early days, as most devices are still stuck on KitKat and yet have to see Android 5.0 or 5.1 Lollipop.  According to rumors, Google’s next Android version a.k.a Android 6.0 or Muffin, will come with an updated but not likely redesigned Material UI.  Not only that Android 6.0 will be coming with a few bag of goodies as well, namely a Multi-Tasking (Multi-Window) feature.  This will be pretty handy considering the larger display devices in the market these days like the Nexus 6. Their is no official word on what exactly will Android “M” be called, could be Muffin or like they did with KitKat, maybe it could be Mars, who knows. Only thing that is for sure is that Android 6.0 will be something to look out for at the end of 2015. Till then let us know what name do you suggest for Google’s next Android...

This is what the Samsung GALAXY S6 might look like – [Leaked Prototype Images]

With the Mobile World Congress less than a month away, everyday we see new rumors surfacing about various OEMs and their next big flagship devices that are to e announced at the mega annual event in Barcelona commencing from March 2nd. A few days back we had mentioned about Samsung’s next flagship device or should we rather say devices now since according to some very strong rumors, Samsung are releasing not one but two variants of its long running line of GALAXY S series with the release of the GALAXY S6 and the S Edge which in our opinion should be somewhat similar to the  Galaxy Note Edge. As of today, our friends at Phone Arena have got their hands on what looks like a prototype of Samsung’s next flagship device. How far these pics are close to the real deal we don’t actually know but if it is in fact true, then the S6, as mentioned earlier, would be wrapped in a metallic uni body frame with a glass rear coating. These are still very early (leaked) images of the device but from the looks of things, they do look quite similar to the GALAXY Alpha series. For now, we’ll just have to wait patiently for the MWC. We’ll keep you guys posted on any further updates and rumors so do stick around. Cheers !!  ...

Samsung Galaxy S6 to launch next month with Metallic Uni-Body [Rumor]

Its that time of the year again for all those waiting for Samsung to come up with their next big smartphone! Rumors have it, that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S6 in Berlin next month! The Galaxy S6 is expected to have a full metallic body or just a rim, similar to the Galaxy Note 4. According to further rumors, there will not be only one, but two variants of the Galaxy S6. The second will have a curved display, somewhat like the Galaxy Note Edge. According to an Italian blog, the Galaxy S6 will come in a metallic uni-body. That means no removable battery. The cheapest device will have in built 64GB of storage with a micro SD slot. Samsung  pride themselves in making one of the best displays for a smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are proof. So, it is safe to expect the Galaxy S6 to at least have a Quad HD 2560×1440 display in both its variants. Software wise, the Galaxy S6 will be running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with an all new Minimalistic TouchWiz UI. Along with the phones, Samsung are also planning to show off their new smart watch. Most probably the smart watch will be running on Samsung’s very own Tizen OS and not on Google’s Android Wear. Samsung really need to make the Galaxy S6 shine as competitors are up-ing their game quite a bit. So are you as excited as we are for Samsung’s next big thing? Keep tunen in to get more updates about the phone as they...

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge coming soon!

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge coming soon!

Samsung have faced a decrease in smartphone sales this year. A lot of people were hoping that this would spark a change in the development of their next year’s flagship device. Rumors of a “Project Zero” were indicating that Samsung might be building the next device from scratch. (Fingers crossed for that!) Talking about the name of the device, SamMobile have confirmed that the next flag ship will be called  the Samsung Galaxy 6 (go figure). There will also be a Galaxy S6 Edge variant, seeing how curved displays are the way to go these days. The S6 Edge will most probably have a display similar to the Galaxy Note Edge. Heading to the hardware department, the Galaxy S6 would be having a Quad HD (2560×1440) display, 64-bit Exynos 7420/Snapdragon 810 processor, 16/20-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 32/64/128GB storage. The software side of things would include Samsung’s very own TouchWiz, with the new Theme engine running on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop. The device is sure looking like a beast of a phone, though only time will tell, if it is or is not! All are just rumors at this point, so do take this all in with a pinch of...

HTC One M9 rumored to launch early 2015 with front facing Bose speakers – [Rumors]

HTC One M9 rumored to launch early 2015 with front facing Bose speakers – [Rumors]

Its usually this time of the year when rumors linked to multiple OEMs flagship devices begin to surface. According to some (very early) rumors, HTC have already started working on their upcoming HTC One M9, considered by many as the Taiwanese tech giant’s next flagship device of 2015. From what we have heard so far, the HTC One M9 will most definitely pack a punch so it seems from the initial specs that have been leaked which include the ultra fast and powerful Snapdragon 805 chipset, a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display, a 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, options of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, a 3,500mAh battery and much more. On of the surprise exclusions from the upcoming device is the fact that HTC have opted to revert back to traditional shooters instead of the Ultra-Pixel cameras that were rolled out with its flagship predecessors, the HTc One M7 and the HTC One M8. Another major talking point which has certainly raised a few eyebrows is the (possible) affiliation of HTC with renowned audio giants, Bose for manufacturing the device’s front facing speakers, a feature introduced by HTC and now adapted by other OEMs as well including Motorola. Its still not confirmed whether Bose would also be creating any special EQ software or will have a heavy hand in crafting the audio drivers that will go inside the M9, but looking to partner up with one of the biggest names in consumer audio would certainly suggest they’ll be getting as serious as they ever have been about audio considering the company’s earlier affiliation with Beats Audio. There are also rumors on the possible launch of a premium variant of the HTC One M9 which for now is simply known as the, HTC One M9 Prime. As far as the Prime’s tech specs are concerned, there has been no official word on it as yet but we are anticipating it to have an edge over the regular M9 mainly in the hardware/specs department. We’ll keep you guys posted as soon as we get some more insights on HTC’s flagship device of 2015, till then do stick around for more. Cheers...
