Confirmed: Samsung global will announce the Galaxy S5 later this month. report :-akki


Samsung recently sent out invitations to a press conference that will take place ahead of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona later this month. Dubbed Unpacked 5, the presence of “5″ in the event’s title caused the tech press to jump to the conclusion that Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S5, would debut at the event. That notion remained speculation until Wednesday morning, when The New York Times confirmed that Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 will in fact debut at the company’s February 24th press conference.

The report also notes that Samsung should and will shift its focus away from gimmicky features in the Galaxy S5.

Hmm, where have we heard that advice before?

Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 is expected to feature a new AMOLED display with 2K resolution that measures about 5.2 inches diagonally. Reports also suggest the phone will include a quad-core Snapdragon processor or an octa-core Samsung Exynos chipset depending on region, 3GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of memory, a 16-megapixel camera, a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,200 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

The NYT also says that Samsung will unveil a sequel to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch during its event later this month.

Google releases smarter, simpler Android 4.4 KitKat


Currently, the Android KitKat is available for only the newly announced LG Nexus 5 but it will be released for other Nexus devices pretty soon.


Google has formally launched the Android 4.4 KitKat with the launch of Nexus 5 smartphone. It is said to be simpler and smarter version of all Android versions released till date.
Android KitKat brings a much simpler voice search; when on your home screen* or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song.
While reading e-books, watching movies or while playing games, everything else apart from the content will be hidden. You though can bring back the status bar and navigation buttons by swiping the edge of the touchscreen.
Besides, the Android KitKat introduces HDR+ mode that snaps a rapid burst of photos and combines them to give you the best possible single shot.
