Samsung Galaxy S IV to have full-HD display, 13-megapixel camera: Rumour

Posted on November 21, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , , , , |


As the end of the year approaches, the rumour mill about the next Galaxy S device from Samsung seems to be going into overdrive.
While the Samsung Galaxy S III was unveiled in May this year,there’s plenty of buzz that its successor may be unveiled a bit earlier next year. With twobig events at the start of the year, expect to hear more about the Samsung Galaxy S IV either at CES in Las Vegas in January, or (more likely) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2013.

The first bit of rumour comes from Korean site Asiae and it says that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will have a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display with 1920*1080 resolution, giving it a pixel density of 441PPI. That report is in line with earlier rumours which suggested that Samsung and LG are working on smartphones with full-HD display which may be releasedin first-half of 2013. It would make sense for Samsung’s next flagship device to be its first smartphones with full-HD display .
According to another report , the Galaxy S IV will feature a 13-megapixel camera, a significant upgrade over the Galaxy S III’s 8-megapixel rear shooter.
In addition to the above, there’s more buzz about the Galaxy S IV featuring a 2 GHz quad-core Exynos processor and an 8-core GPU.
Editor’s Punch: Hope this rumour turns out reality and we’l have an awesome phone again 😀

Adobe confirms it won’t support Flash on Android 4.1

Posted on June 29, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , |


Adobe was very public about dropping mobile Flash last fall.In case that wasn’t clear enough,the developer just drew a line in the sand:Android 4.1 doesn’t,and won’t ever,get certification for Flash.The company is stopping short of saying that Flash won’t run,but it’s evident that Adobe won’t help you if the web browser plugin doesn’t install(or breaks in spectacular fashion) on that Nexus 7.Just to underscore the point,the firm is also halting new installations of Flash from Google Play as of August 15th.Security updates and other vital patches will continue on for existing users.Any fresh downloads after that fateful day,however,will have to come from Adobe’s mausoleum for old versions.The company had already said that HTML5 was the way forward on phones and tablets–now we know just how quickly it’s backing up that claim.
