Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Gets Andriod 4.4.4 KitKat

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may no longer be the latest Samsung phablet, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it won’t be enjoying the latest Android updates from the manufacturer, as US carrier Sprint has released the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat today.

Oddly, there’s no word of the non-carrier vanilla flavor of the Note 3 getting the same 4.4.4 update yet, so it appears that the Sprint-branded Note 3 will be beating the other iterations to the punch.

Here’s a screenshot from the company’s webpage that details the update changelog.

We’ll keep you posted as soon as the Android 4.4.4 update arrives on other  Samsung Galaxy Note 3  versions.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Be Launch On Wednesday

While Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 4 on Wednesday, September 3, the purported pricing of the phablet has been revealed by a European electronics retailer, Media Markt.

According to a report by a Russian website, a representative of retailer Media Markt has tipped that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be priced at RUB 34,990 (approximately Rs. 56,700) for the Russian market, and will go on sale in late September or early October. The report notes that the new phablet’s pricing is the same as it was for the Galaxy Note 3 (Review | Pictures) last year, whereas the Galaxy S5 (Review | Pictures) was priced at RUB 29,990.

On Saturday, a device with model number SM-N910T thought to be the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was spotted in a User Agent profile on the company’s mobile site along with display resolution and a hint of a 64-bit SoC.

The User Agent (UA) profile listing showed that the alleged ‘SM-N910T’ Galaxy Note 4 features a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display. It also speculated that the processor powering the smartphone is 64-bit, based on other details in the UA profile.

Earlier, the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was listed in two variants – SM-N910S and SM-N910C, depending on region – by an Indonesian online retailer. The listing had also included mention of a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display offering a pixel density of 515ppi on a 5.7-inch screen; 4GB of RAM; 16GB/ 32GB/ 64GB inbuilt storage variants; expandable storage up to 128GB (via microSD card); Micro-SIM support; 16-megapixel camera with OIS, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

The Indonesian Galaxy Note 4 retail listing mentions a 2.5GHz quad-core processor (possibly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) variant and an octa-core (Exynos with 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 and four quad-core Cortex-A57 cores) variant. The website had listed the smartphone for IDR 9,499,000, which translates to roughly Rs. 50,000

New Samsung Now In Metal Case

 

 

 

 

metalSamsung is no longer living in a plastic world: The tech giant today unveiled the new metal-framed Galaxy Alpha smartphone.

The latest samsung Galaxy flagship device comes with a 4.7-inch HD Super AMOLED display and advanced camera features, housed within a metal frame with curved corners and soft back cover.

With an almost iPhone-like design, the Alpha stands at less than 7mm thick—one of the slimmest Galaxy devices ever.

The new handset sports a 1,280-by-720-pixel display, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 2.1-megapixel front shooter. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and includes features like ultra power-saving mode, S Health, fingerprint scanner, private mode, and connectivity with Samsung’s wearables.

“With an entirely new appearance, the Galaxy Alpha focuses on both beauty and functionality,” Shin continued, “combining a stunning metal frame and slim, lightweight design with the same powerful hardware and features users expect from a flagship Galaxy mobile device.”

It also comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a USB port, and NFC capability. And while the phone boasts 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, there is no micro SD slot for expandable space.

The samsung Galaxy Alpha launches in early September, available in charcoal black, dazzling white, frosted gold, sleek silver, and scuba blue. An exact date and pricing was not revealed.

BulletProof Phone That Saved A Man’s Life

bullet

A Chinese man survived a gunshot after his Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 smartphone took a bullet for him.

The man picked up a wallet dropped by another man and joked about using it to buy beer.

The owner of the wallet did not find the remark funny and whipped out a gun.

The victim was shot in the arm but his phone in his shirt pocket blocked the bullet from reaching any of his internal organs.

The man has survived the attack but he had to throw the damaged phone, media reports said. Here’s 9to5google’s report of the incident:

A man in Taiwan was shot in the chest during an apparent bar fight over a missing wallet on Monday, but not before the bullet passed straight through his Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 saving his life. As AppleDaily reports, a man named Han found a wallet on the street, who jokingly stated something along the lines of “free beer.” The man who the wallet belonged to, Xu, got angry, and pulled out a gun. Han (phablet owner) pulled out a sickle and went to attack the man with the gun. As Xu shot Han, the bullet penetrated his arm, and as it headed straight towards his chest, his giant Galaxy Mega 6.3 lodged in his shirt pocket was there to save the day and stop the bullet. While Han is expected to make a full recovery, his heroic phone wasn’t so lucky.
