Samsung to unveil customized 64-bit CPU’s and new 4K smartphone displays next year

These days every other person has been talking about Samsung and why wouldn’t they? Since the last few years, the South Korean tech giants are on an absolutely remarkable role when it comes to innovations and creativity and currently ranks alongside with the world’s best. These accolades have been largely dependent on the company’s vision for the future and that is exactly what it has in store for us in the next two years. A few days back Samsung held its first Analyst Day event in Korea in almost eight years where it showcased some of its plans for the coming year and what we should expect to see in the year after that as well. There were two major announcements that has surely left many people quite excited….to say the least! Samsung in affiliation with ARM are currently working on their upcoming range of powerful mobile processors that would be structured on the 64-bit core architecture. According to inside scoops, Samsung are said to be coming up with their very own customized processing chips based on ARM’s architecture and would be an integral part of most of the devices that are scheduled to be launched next year with rumors suggesting that these new powerful chips might make their debut in Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S5 but nothing has been confirmed so far. Samsung also revealed its plans for smartphone displays that include devices with AMOLED panels sporting 560ppi (pixel per inch) pixel density. These devices are expected to launch with WQHD resolution (2560×1440) next year but so far no official timeline has been mentioned. If that’s not impressive enough, wait till you read further. The company are also planning to launch the world’s first smartphones having 4K displays along with a few other flexible devices sometime in 2015. One such device has already been unveiled recently, the  Samsung Galaxy Round which has most certainly opened a gateway for similar looking devices in the future. The future is definitely looking quite bright for Samsung and even though its too early for us to go overboard with the praises, it is safe to say that we are indeed heading in the right direction. This company never seems to stay out of the spotlight does it ? But for now its kudos to Samsung and its entire team from all of us at TAP. Keep it up you...

Samsung’s Next Windows Phone 8 is Codenamed Cronus

Samsung’s Next Windows Phone 8 is Codenamed Cronus

Samsung introduced their first Windows Phone 8 running smartphone the Galaxy ATIV S last year, but it has kept its main focus on Android smartphones. Nokia (now owned by Microsoft) is “the” manufacturer of Windows Phones and has established itself slowly in the market. Needless to say Samsung are not backing out of this area and according to our favorite leakster @evleaks they are about to launch a new Windows 8 running smartphone soon. The SGH-I187  is codenamed “Cronus” and is expected to come under AT&T’s banner. Sadly when it comes to specs the only confirmed thing we know is that it will be having  a 720p display, processor power or camera or anything else is still rumors only. According to the rumors though, Cronus will have 1GB of RAM will have 8GB internal storage and would be powered by the Snapdragon 400 chipset, which is not all that powerful, but then again this smartphone is expected to be in the budget category. The device though will surely be running on Windows Phone 8, but will be GDR2 or GDR3 that will be the...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Desgin Your Life

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – Desgin Your Life

  Samsung Unpacked 2013 in Berlin kicked off in style yesterday with Mr. J.K Shin, president of Samsung mobile communications presenting the world with the all new “Samsung Galaxy Note 3”.The highly anticipated phone (or rather phablet) is a noteworthy successor to the Galaxy Note 2 that was released last year and who also managed to take the world by storm with some of its unique and exciting features. The Note 3 features a 5.7-inch, full HD 1920×1080 AMOLED display which is slightly bigger than its predecessor the Galaxy Note 2 that sports a 5.5-inch (720p) display. Besides the slightly bigger screen, the Note 3 is comparatively slimmer and lighter measuring at 8.3mm and weighing just around 168g. Coming to the hardware, the Note 3 comes in two different CPU variants: a 2.3 GHz quad-core (LTE) and a 1.9 GHz Octa-core (3G version available only in selected countries). Another big talking point of the Note 3 is its massive 3GB RAM which perfectly supports the phone’s powerful processing capabilities. All this power requires a top notch battery and that’s exactly what the Note 3 has to offer. It comes with a rather decent 3,200mAh battery which promises to last a whole day even on heavy usage. The Note 3 also features compatibility with the fourth generation of 4G LTE, currently one of the fastest when it comes to mobile internet connectivity. The device comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera with the rear lens capable of recording full length Ultra HD videos in 1080p at 30fps, while also taking slow motion videos at 120fps. The front camera also records video in 1080p HD. One of the major criticisms which Samsung devices usually tend to face is the cheap plastic texture used in these high end devices with people expecting something a little more classy looking…to say the least. It seems that this issue has been resolved with the Note 3 which comes wrapped in a stylish looking textured, leather-effect rear edged in fake stitching enclosure with a classy looking metal rim.   What distinguishes the Note devices from the rest is the S Pen; a stylus which fits snuggly in the bezel of your device. The world was introduced to the S Pen when the first Samsung Phablet the Galaxy Note was released in 2011 and it has been greatly enhanced ever since. The S Pen is not just an accessory; it is the ying to the Note’s yang. The moment you take out the S Pen from the Note an Air Command wheel pops up on the screen on top of a webpage, app...
